caved In last night. There were no casual
ties. The cave-In occurred about l.ono feet from
the portal of the tunnel, probably at one of
three air shafts that lead up through the
tunnel roof, and was undoubtedly caused
by the melting of the unprecedented heavy
snows. Although heavily timbered
throughout, the tunnel la always carefully
watched and ' precautions have been
doubled during the last few weeks.
The discovery of the cave-m was mads
by i track walker. Believing that the vast
mass of dirt and rock had burled a train,
he hurried back to the flrat station and
gave warning. A train, bearing engineers
and officials of the road, was rushed to
the scene, but In the meantime the wires
had been at work and It was found that
there had been no loss of life or any one
At tha offtcea of the Denver A Rio

In commenting upon" the matter Mr.

tegrity of the Jury and also charged Im

charges of Improper Influence were too
Indefinite for consideration, but granted
the motion as a matter of right to the
