sons were drowned in the cloudburst
that swept this part of the state yes
terday. The Baby Gauge Railroad
up the canyon to Mctcalf was fright
fully washed, and. on. this road occur
red the narrowest escape from a big
death list.
A train carrying CO passengers met
the flood, which was seen in time for
the train to be stopped, allowing tho
passengers to seek the hillside. Tho
water overturned the train and doubl
ed It up like a horseshoe.
The bodies of many dead are be
lieved to be buried under the trail
ings from tho Arizona Copper Com

fore all the missing can be accounted
for.
Death List Is Thirty-one.
Twelve bodies of flood victims
hare been recovered at Clifton, Ariz.,

at 31. Many of the bodies will never
be recovered, although hundreds of
men, Including many ot the striking
miners, are engaged In the search.
The rush of waters bore most of tho
bodies from tho Chase creek into the
San Francisco river.
Harrowing tales of death are re
ported by people living along Chase
creek, one man reporting that he
counted 12 people struggling in the
water, and believes that all of them
were lost. One Mexican woman lost
five children who were swept away
with the wreckage of their house.
! Clifton had its hero on horseback,
similar to the man who rode down
the valley of Johnstown, Pa., and
I warned tne people of the impending
I danger. The Clifton hero rode at
! breakneck speed five minutes ahead
I of the torrent and shouted to the
I settlers to flee to higher ground. His
warning saved hundreds of lives.
