SNOWSLIDE FIVE MILES
WIDE COVERS R. R. TRACKS
v (United Press Leased Wire.)
Butte, Mont., Jan. 19. A tremendous snowslide
with a frontage of five miles covers the tracks of the
Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget Sound railway 20 feet
deep and has completely tied up traffic over the new
line in western Montana.
The descending mass snapped huge trees like twigs
and rolled boulders like marbles. These have been car
ried upon the tracks and it is not likely that the obstruc
tion will be cleared away for several days.
The slide is one of the worst ever known in Montana.
For a; time it was thought a freight train had been
buried under the slide but its safety was reported today.
