The Denver News contains the following
concerning the wreck at Dixon, Colorado,
Thursday morning of last week: “Henry
Schmitz, a traveling man of Lead City, S.
D., was upon the Burlington flyer which met
with the accident yesterday. Mr. Schmitz is
at the Oxford recovering from the shock
which his head received by suddenly coming
into contact with the top of the Pullman
sleeper. He is loud in his praise of the en
gineer of the passenger train and the thougjit
fuluess of Vice President Harris in extend
ing the hospitality of his dining car to the
delayed passengers. Schmitz says the con
ductor of the freight train was the cause of
all the trouble. Engineer Avery of the pas
senger train applied the air brakes and
jumped rolling down a gravel bank as the
engine crushed into the caboose of the freight
train. The engineer recovered his presence
of mind, and despite his bruised condition,
crawled into his engine and backed out the
the train in time to prevent a disastrous fire.
Mr. Schmitz says the train was rounding the
curve at the rate of forty-five miles an
hour when the engineer took his fiying leap
through the eab window.”
