Veritable Night
Of Terror Spent
By Flood Victims
Hundreds of Victims Buried
In Mud and Wreckage
Many Who Failed to
Heed Warnings Lost.
Colorado Springs, June 6.-l-Charles
Dradman, a refugee, just in from Pu
eblo, says that while the property
loss and number of deaths may be
over-estimated, hundreds have been
lost who will never be found. They
are buried in deep mud and wreck

inundated district," he said. "VYe got
sufficient warning, but failed to heed
it. A wall of water, several feet high
, struck the building, carrying it off
its foundation. The water sooa
reached the second story and sever
al roomers were lost.
"I was rescued from the roof in
a row boat. I saw several houses
wrecked and I am sure that 50 lives
were lost iu my own observation. 1
am glad to escape with my life, for I
lost about everything else.

Raced Ahead of Flood.
Raymond C. Chapman and Stanley
Robinson of Colorado Springs and
Ivor Dailey of Denver also reached
here. The drive was made over
washed out roads, along railroad
tracks, over improvised bridges and
.through ploughed fields.
Chapman had the remarkable ex
perience of coming down the Arkan
sas valley in advance of the flood,
, seeing it inundate Pueblo immedi
ately after his arrival and then of
reaching his home here last night.
He traveled in his automobile. He
"Coming down the Arkansas val
ley I reached Pueblo early Friday
evening. When I reached the city
the sirens were blowing. The water
was on a level with the bridges. I
had with me a New York traveling
man, who I had picked up. We
went to the Vaile hotel, where we
wanted to lodge.
"A short time later this hotel was
flooded to the second story. I then
went to the Congress hotel, which
is on higher ground. Here, later on,
a number of refugees were brought
Many Rescued.
"I spent the whole of Friday night
watching the flood and fire. Such a
night I hope never to see again. The
watera soon reached the second
stories of buildings in the business;

district ana peopie were uv-ni
rescued in boats. The boats were
brought up from Mineral Park lake
and all were in use. Many flood
victims were thus rescued.
"The city was in darkness except
for candles in some of the buildings
that were not flooded ana tor lan
terns used by rescuers.
"The fires, terrible as they were,
lighted up the city more or less and
made the work of rescue easier than
it would have been otherwise., . .
' "I saw a two-story house floating
down the street at the corner of
Main and Third streets.
"Box'cars and houses were piled
up in heaps and the Union depot was
surrounded with water and wreck;
age until I could not see it from
the nearest point I could reach,
which was: ven or eight blocks
away. The water there was said to
be 11 feet deep.
Many Refuse to Leave.
"Effors were made by the police
to tret the people to leave their homes
in parts of the city where it was
seen they would soqn be flooded,
but they could not get them to go.
They were caught a few minutes
later by the flood. Many of these
people were rescued from sficond
story windows in row boats. ; Some
; were taken from trees, telephone
poles, and roofs of their houses '.
"A boy in a boat had rescued two
women and was trying to get an old
man in the boat when one of the wo
men became hysterical and the boat
was upset. The boy held on to one
of the women and tried to get her to
a place of safety, but his strength
was too feeble and all were swept
away in the rushing flood. This
happened at Seventh and Elizabeth
"Throughout the night fires could
be seen in different parts of the city
and for a while it looked as if va
rious sections were doomed. The
fires originated in oil tanks or else
where and the wreckage of houses
and other combustible material fed
the flames. Much lumber from
the two big' yards lodged in the
wreckage and was burned."
Autos Abandoned in Streets.
Ivor Dailey and? Wilbur F. Can
non of Colorado Springs, comfort
ably located in a building above the
,flooded district, spent all Friday
night watching the flood and fire
do its deadly work. Their state
. ment is that the Arkansas river
leaped its banks at 7 o'clock in the
evening. Autoists caught in their
cars in the streets abandoned them
and the cars, knocked against each
other, bumped into plate glass win
dows, turned over and over until at
length broken to pieces. Late Fri
day night and early Saturday morn
ing fires were more frequent, they
said, caused by unslacked lime and
oil and augmented by passing
houses, lumber and other combust
ibles. ' At 2 o'clock Sunday morn
ing it was possible to read a news
paper by light of these fires.
Dailey said the night in Pueblo
was a night of terror.
"We saw a woman in the' second
story of a house floating down Main
street The house struck a building
while the water swirled around it,
sucking it down. Finally it stopped
and the woman, having evidently lost
her mind, leaped into the water and
was drowned.
"We saw another woman standing
in the doorway of her residence,
while her son tried to reach her on
an improvised raft of logs wired to
gether. V The house lurched and
turned over and the woman was lost
just at thfe point of rescue.

Stricken City of Pueblo After Flood Hit
Denver, June 6.Informatkn in
relation to conditions in flood-strick
en and isolated Pueblo was obtained
and forwarded to the outside world
under conditions that were as trying
and in some instances as hazardous
as those which the suffering people
of that city themselves underwent
The first news of the disaster came
to Denver over The Associated
Press leased wire and a Western
Union Telegraph company messags
almost simultaneously. A few min
utes after The Associated Press wire
lost Pueblo and the last Western
Union operator to brave the rush of
the waters wired to the Denver
"I am firoinor to teat it: the water

day night
Reporters First in Town.
After that it was hours before
communication between Pueblo and
the rest of the country was restored.
Then that was over one Western
Union wire. The first outside news
paper men to reach the flooded city
were two Denver correspondents.
One of them was an Associated
Press staff man and the other a
staff correspondent of the Denver
Times. They went together early
Saturday morning in an airplane
from this city.
Later two more Associated .Press
correspondents and an Associated
Press operator went to Colorado
Springs from Denver by train and
from Colorado Springs to Pueblo by
automobile and by foot. Trains

er them, 'he said, lhe bodies of
woman and girl have been located
near the Colorado and .Southern
bridge but cannot be recovered and
several in Grove cannot yet be re
moved, he said.
Kescue and reconstruction work is
being systematized tinder the direc
tion of Col. Patrick Hamrock, ad
jutant general of the state and chief
in command of the military. The
city has been divided into wards and
physicians assigned to the various
wards to care for the emergency
cases and to instruct the residents in
proper sanitation precautions during
the abnormal conditions.
No Food Shortage.
There is no danger of a food
shortage, it is said, but the supply
is being conserved. Charles W. Lee
and ludue Frank Mirick are in
charge of this department Food
cards- are tstill being issued for the
ourchase of Erocenes. AH restric
tions on the purchase of gasoline and
oil have been removed.
Lee today issued a proclamation to
all retail merchants ordering them
to deliver no food supplies to any
one except fresh meats, vegetables
and fresh fruit, unless the purchaser
could show a written order signed
by himself. Such orders were, being
issued at half a dozen places through
out the city.
Lieutentant Colonel Newlon late
this afternoon ordered out the rifle
companies at Brush, Fort Morgan
and Bnehton to augment the troops
already doing guard and police duty
in Pueblo.
A work train of the Denver and
Rio Grande railroad from Colorado
Springs approached to within four
miles of Pueblo on the north this
afternoon. The information was
brought to military headquarters by
Maj. Bert Lake, quartermaster of
the National guard, who came that
far on a train.
' Relief Trains, Start.
A relief train with supplies for the
flood sufferers left Fort Logan,
Colo., at 3:30 this afternoon, accord
ing to a telegram to Colonel Ham
rock from Colonel "Caples at Fort
Logan, in command of the relief ex
pedition. It is expected to arrive
here Tuesday morning. Another re
lief train -will leave Fort Logan to
morrow, his telegram stated.
Colonel Caples in his message said
20,000 army rations would be ordered
shipped from Omaha if needed.
Colonel Hamrock says this will not
be ordered, as the food situation is
good. . i
A carload of provisions, the gift of
the people of Utah to the Pueblo
flood sufferers, was sent from Salt
Lake City today, Colonel Hamrock
said. The train is bringing 125 tents,
2,250 blankets, 1,750 bed sacks. Three
baggage cars loaded with tents,
blankets and cots "will be started to
Pueblo from Fort Logan Tuesday
The relief camp for flood victims
will be established about two mjles
east of town instead of at Mineral
Palace park, as previously an
nounced, Colonel Hamrock said.

Rehabilitation of the telephone
service, almost completely disrupted
by the flood, is to begin immediate

granted permission to the telephone
company officials to string temporary
wires to connect important points in

could not get within miles of the
business section of the stricken city
and automobiles that managed to get
around washouts in the roads had to
stop at the city limits. . Colorado
Springs newspaper men also suc
ceeded in reaching Pueblo late Sat
urday. News of the conditions in Pueblo
was obtained only under the greatest
of difficulties. Local newspapers, the
police, the fire department, the mili
tary and the Red Cross were the first
sources of information, as the high
water and the strict vigilance of
military guards made it impossible
to get first hand intormation . until
the necessary military passes had
been .obtained and provisions made
for setting around through the mud,
water and fires that overwhelmed
the city. Correspondents had to
work, in relays to keep in contact
with the lone wire and an uncer
tain wire at that which connected
Pueblo with Denver, the distribution
center for news which leaked out
from the former city.
From the tops of buildings news
paper men m Pueblo witnessed much
of the disaster. They also used boats.
Boots, were in fashion. The military
wig-wagged information when dis
tance made it impossible to hear the
human voice. Fire whistles served
as signals for more urgent matters,
Church bells also played their part
in the transmission of emergency in
formation. Half nude and intrepid
swimmers,, many of them negroes,
served as couriers.
the city has been down. In granting
this permission Colonel Hamrock
declared his primary object at this
time is to restore business.
Late estimates of the total damage
and crop loss from Canon City to
the Kansas line is placed at $20,000,
000 in a telegram from the Pueblo
Commercial club to Governor Oliver
H. Shoup. Damage in Pueblo city
and county will reach $6,000,000 or
$8,000,000, the telegram states.
The governor is urged to aid in the
request that the federal government
appropriate $5,000,000, of which
$2,000,000 be made available immedi
ately for improving the Arkansas and
Fountain, river levees and removing
debris from the damaged cities.
Pueblo needs $1,500,000 for this
work, the telegram states.
Scenes of Desolation.
Scenes of desolation were re
vealed this afternoon when the fall
ing of the , waters of the Arkansas
river from the Grove district of the
city permitted a close-up of this sec
tion, which suffered , most in the
flood of Friday night.
Residents . of the district, mostly
foreigners, were at work this after
noon retrieving what they could of
their household "effects. Some are
planning to go back to their homes
The Grove is one of the poor sec
tions of Pueblo.
Little of this district is more than
a tew teet above the river banks
and that the waters swept across
the settlement with great violence is
shown by houses swept from their
foundations and a freight car lodged
more than 300 yards from any rail
road tracks. Loss of lite in the.
Grove district has not approached
early predictions. Frctmjits position
the loss should not have been great
had the people taken warnings, but
ftiany refused to leave their homes
until the water had rushed in upon
Mail is Recovered.
An important part of the salvage
today was sacks of Tmail. These
were recovered from all parts of the
yard, gathered in piles and hauled by
ropes from the railroad yards to via-
ducts and taken to the postoffice.
Another peculiar recovery in the
yards was a corpse, carried by the
flood from an uptown undertaking
establishment It was the body of
Gordon Rennie, sent here from Cali
fornia for burial The body of Mrs.
Sardgena, sent here from Trindad,
was also washed away during the
flood and later recovered in its cas
ket, which was . intact. Rennie's
body was found floating on the cas
ket lid.

By The AMoelated FreM.
Pueblo, Colo., June 6. A graphic
description of the plight ot passes
gcrs caught by the flood in the Mis
souri Pacific and Denver and Rio
Grande trains during the flood here
Friday night, was given by Mrs. Ru
by Jillis of Wichita, Kan., who was
imprisoned in an overturned Pull
man coach on the Denver and Rio
Grande with her 9-year-old daughter
for more than four hours.
"We were in the car next to the
enginc'and the train was pulled out
of the station to a point near the
river," Mrs. Ellis said. "It seemed
as though we were only 20 feet from
the river bank. The car turned over
gradually as the water ruslred under
the bottom. It seemed that the
others turned over one by one short
ly afterwards.
Trapped in Car.
"The car. turned on the right side
and my little daughter, Mildred
Mary, and I were thrown to the
bottom of the car into the water. I
struggled to the surface and found
mattresses and bedding over me.
Then I found my little girl and pull
ed her to the top of the car, which
was not yet filled with water. We
stood on the rods of the upper berth
and held onto the rods on the top
ot the car.
"The water rose rapidly until it
had reaohed my chin. My little girl
was clinging to my neck. Fortunate
ly the ventilator windows were
opened and we were able to breathe
I had jriven up hone of life when
the water came to my chin. Mildred
Mary had not cried or complained
up to this time and she asked:
'What shall I do mother,' and I told
her to pray.
Trust in Jesus.
"Then she repeated over and over
again: 'Jesus, I trust you.'
It seemed only a few minutes
then until the water began to re
cede. We made our way to the
end of the car, where some women
in the train had broken out a win
dow and were helped to the side
of the coach by the rescue party.
Ihey carried us to the Nuckolls
icking plant."
Mrs. Ellis had no idea of the
number drowned in the two trains.
Two of the passengers iti her coach
whose names she did not know
were not seen by her in the group
of rescued, she said.
Mrs. Ellis had been employed in
the office of the Missouri Pacific at
Wichita and was en route to visit
a sister, Mrs. L. G. Siddall, who
lives at New Castle, Colo.
No Bodies Found.
No additional bodies " were taken
from the overturned cars of the
Denver & Rio Grande today. Res- i
cue parties were able . to reach the
trains and search through all cars,
it was announced. . The bidding in
the bottom of the cars had not been
removed and it was stated that
there is a possibility that some bod
ies may yet be found, but this was
believed impossible.
Passengers who escaped from the
trains were in the yards today in
efforts to find their baggage. Some
were successful, but most searched
in vain.

Nearing an End
$35,00Q to Be Salvaged From

Lincoln, June 6. (Special.) Re
ceivership of the First State; Savings
Ba,nk of Superior, which went to the
wall seven years ago, shortly after
the failure of the First National Bank
of Superior, is nearing an end.
According to J. E. Hart, secretary
of the department of trade and com
merce, there will be about $35,000
salvaged from the bank and the re
maining $20,000 will be taken from
the 6tate bank guarantee fund. This
is the first state bank to fail after
the state guarantee law became effec
tive. Hart stated that C. W. Harvey,
receiver, had used $30,000 of the
bank's money for a number of years
without interest and for that reason
no compensation would be allowed
him. Harvey moved into Superior
about the time of the failure of the
two banks. When the receivership
is wound up Harvey will go,to Cali
fornia, Hart stated.
Assistant Attorney General C. A.
Dort has gone to Superior and has
started proceedings m the JNuckolls
county district court, which will call
for the public sale of all remaining
property of the bank.
Dort also started proceedings in
the Thayer county district court,
which resulted in the appointment of
Hugh Bruning of Belvidere as the
receiver for the Farmers State Bank
of Belvidere. The doors of that bank
were closed recently, following the
disappearance of William Barge, the
cashier. '
