Denver , Doc. 22. The blizzard that
raged on Friday and Saturday in east
ern Colorado and Wyomliw and west

Pacific and Burlington roit.s wore de
layed nt least twenty-four hours and
BO me trains due Saturday rnornl ! s did
not arrive In Denver until Sunday

Hills and trains which left Denver
on Filday were only released from
their wedged positions In the drift
Sunday. One train , which was com
pletely hidden from sight by the snow ,
was relieved by snow plows from Alli

from Mercer , Neb. , with fuel and pro

imprisoned passengers. It required
desperate work to reach the stalled
train through the blinding storm and
almost impenetrable drifts. The at
tention of the railroads has been di
rect almost exclusively to getting the
trains going on schedule time again.

and danger Intensified a hundredfold
by the clouds of scalding steam that
poured out upon them from the shat
tered boiler of the Stockton engine.
After the "Owl" left the Oakland mole
it was ifnU-d that there was a leak in

hension of the physicians.
Story of an Eye-Wltness.
Frank H. Short , a prominent resi
dent of Fresno , who was at dinner
when tha collision occurred , said In
discussing the wreck :
"It jvas Indescribably awful. Sev
eral successive jars occurred , the
lights went out , glass crashed all
about us , the chandelier toppled down
and the crowd was panic stricken. We
ran to the Fresno car and there en
countered a scene of the most terrible
description. Men were begging , ap
pealing , swearing and groaning.
Everything was 1n utter darkness
and a fence was torn down and firea
started to give light. Men were seen
sticking out of windows with their
limbs caught In the wreckage. Some
had doubtless met Instant death , while
others were horribly ucalded and im
paled. On one side of the car the vic
tims seemed to be mostly scalded ,
while on the other side they were
crushed. We began the work of res
cuing. With axes and eaws we made
our way into the car. and worked back
among the seats , carrying out the In
jured. I think every person I carried
out had a broken limb. The plight of
the Vernons , father and son. was par
ticularly harrowing. The father's
body was sticking out of the car win
dow and he was begging to be rescued
quickly , as he said he was crushing his
son underneath. We chopped him out
as quick as possible and then freed
the boy from the mass of splintered
wood and twisted iron , The boy was
badly burned. The father died from
his Injuries. "
