Abeyta, Eliseo
Eliseo Abeyta - Denver Post - November 26, 2005 - Miner's longtime radio show a labor of love - If Eliseo Abeyta hadn't had to go to work in the coal mines during the Depression, he might have become a radio celebrity. Abeyta, who died at age 90, made history anyway, having a Spanish-language radio show on KCRT in Trinidad that began in 1950. He loved the one-hour show that began at 5 p.m. six days a week, said his daughter, Dolores Bronowski of Lakewood. The show aired for 29 years. In fact, to cut out the driving time, he set up his own broadcast studio in his basement, playing records and doing all the commercials as well as plugging for charities. He bought his own equipment and records for his home studio. "We had only one phone line, so we all knew no one could answer the phone during that hour but him," Bronowski said. The family is left with hundreds of records - 45s, 33s, and 78s - as well as tapes. Lesh Abeyta, as he was known by everyone, had to sell his own ads too, so he knew everyone in Trinidad, where he lived all his life. Sometimes, through friends in the radio business, he had live performers on his show. The station got a two-for-one deal when it hired Abeyta because he was skilled in electronics and could do repairs at the station, his daughter said. "He taught himself about electronics," said son Gary Abeyta of Aurora. "He could fix anything." All the while, Lesh Abeyta was still working at coal mines in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico and was active in the United Mine Workers of America, serving as financial secretary for 12 years. Next year would have been his 70th year as a union member. After leaving the mines, he worked in the county assessor's office, often translating for the assessor's staff. Eliseo Abeyta was born Sept. 6, 1915, in Colfax County, N.M., and graduated from high school in Trinidad. He married Marie Montoya on Jan. 20, 1938. She preceded him in death. In later years, Abeyta was hard of hearing, so he rigged lights in his house to alert him to a doorbell or phone. One was a counter light in the kitchen, Bronowski said. "It was like having a stoplight in the kitchen," she said, laughing. In addition to his daughter and son, he is survived by another son, Leslie Abeyta of Broomfield; a brother, Ben Abeyta of Denver; seven grandchildren; and 14 grandchildren.

Abeyta, Jesus Ma
Jesus Ma Abeyta - Chronicle News - April. 21, 1900 - Another Good Man Gone - Again Las Animas county is called upon to mourn the loss of one of her earliest pioneers and one of her best known and most respected citizens, in the person of Jesus Ma Abeyta; who died in his home in the western portion of the city at 9 o'clock yesterday morning of pneumonia, contracted nearly two weeks ago. Deceased was born at Abiquiu, N. M., January 10, 1820 and came to this city with the very first permanent settlers in what afterwards became Trinidad, in 1864. He took up his residence on the spot where he continued to reside until his death. Of him may be said with the strictest regard for truth, that he was a good man. His honesty was like a ray of sunlight - clear, true and certain. As a neighbor and friend he was ever generous and faithful; and, as those who knew him most intimately say, he was one of the best husbands and fathers who ever lived. Not a man of much education in books, he knew men and their ways and was a very competent and successful business man. He married at his birth place, January 10, 1854, Miss Manuelita Montano, who survives him. To them were born six children, Vivian Abeyta, ex-county commissioner, Mrs. J. J. Cordova, Mrs. P.C. Chacon (dead), Mrs. Thomas Gurule (dead), Teodoro Abeyta, present county assessor, and Mrs. J. B. Vigil. Mr. Abeyta has been in poor health for the past six years, but maintained till the last the cheerful disposition which had always been characteristic of him. He died as he lived, an honest, Christian gentleman and approached his grave, "Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, and lies down to pleasant dreams."

Acute Bright's disease was the cause of his death, and he had been ill but a month. Only a few of his intimate friends knew of his dangerous illness and his death was most unexpected and is a shock to his entire family and large circle of friends. Vivian Abeyta has long been a prominent figure in Las Animas politics. He was born in April, '54 and came to Trinidad with his parents ten years later, remaining here ever since. He was educated in the St. Joseph's Academy here and is practically a Trinidad man, for his heart was always in the welfare of this city. For two terms he was chairman of the board of county commissioners and has served the public in many different capacities, his latest position being that of road commissioner which place he held when he died. He is survived by his wife, a grown daughter, Mrs. Max Tafoya, and three other children. His brother Theodore Abeyta has been county assessor for several terms and his two living sisters are both prominent. They are Mrs. Cordova and Mrs. J. B. Vigil. His parents died some years ago. The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at ten o'clock from the Catholic church and will be attended by the members of the Old Settlers Association, of which organization Mr. Abeyta was a most esteemed member. That the funeral will be a large one is but a natural result for Vivian Abeyta was a man respected and liked by all his acquaintances and loved dearly by his friends and relatives.

Adams, Alva
Alva Adams - Pueblo Chieftain - November 2, 1922 - Alva Adams Was Born In Wisconsin - Came to Colorado When of Age For Benefit of Brother's Health - Alva Adams was born in Iowa County, Wisconsin, May 14, 1850. His parents John Adams and Eliza (Blanchard) Adams, were natives respectively of the states of Kentucky and New York. About 1842 they settled in Wisconsin, where the father followed both the agricultural and mercantile vocations. Alva Adams was reared in his native county, and received a fair education in the public schools. The college training so much coveted by ambitious youths, fortune denied him yet lacking it he proved himself still able to achieve a highly honorable career. He was but just of age when he came to Colorado, the ill health of a brother having been the occasion of the family's removal to this climate. The journey was a tedious one, the primitive "prairie schooner", being their method of travel. They tarried at Greeley in the northern part of the state, and Alva, casting about him for work could at first find nothing more desirable than the laborious task of hauling railroad ties from the mountain forests for use in the construction of the Denver and Rio Grande line. This occupation however, proved a stepping stone to a better opening for within a few weeks he secured a position with C. W. Sanborn, a lumber and hardware dealer at Colorado Springs. While in this employ, the young man erected a building which would serve at once for a dwelling and a place in which to conduct the two branches of Mr. Sanborn's business. The structure was the first built upon the site of the present town of Colorado Springs. In two or three months young Adams bought out his employer for something over $4000 giving his notes for the amount in lieu of cash and took his place among the responsible business men of the State. In the following year – 1872 – he admitted J. C. Wilson to a partnership in the business, and leaving him in charge at Colorado Springs, came to Pueblo and opened a branch here. After a time the partners severed their connection, each retaining the store at his end of the time; and Mr. Adams has since been the proprietor of a flourishing business in Pueblo of which branches were early established in the San Juan district. Always an ardent Democrat, Mr. Adams was speedily drawn into being but twenty three when he was made a trustee of South Pueblo. At twenty six he was elected to represent Rio Grande County in the State Legislature and his service was notable for the strength with which he opposed measures contemplating an unwarrantable expenditure of funds. Mr. Adams was first nominated for Governor in 1884 but his election was this time defeated. Two years later however, he was the successful candidate by a majority of nearly two and a half thousand. In 1896 he was a second time elected Governor, he being, with the single exception of F. W. Pitkin, the only citizen of the State ever recalled to the duties of its highest office. His two administrations as chief executive were characterized by the same careful guardianship of the public finances as that advocated by him while in the Legislature. Under his critical eye, special appropriation bills were subjected to a rigid law of "survival of the fittest," only such as were obviously beneficent ever gaining his sanction to live. Governor Adams enjoyed the reputation of being a "safe man," which means that he was neither unduly venturesome nor conservative to the point of repressing progress. Between these harmful extremes he occupied the happy middle ground of the well balanced and trustworthy citizen. Mr. Adams devoted himself assiduously to his business when not occupied with official work, and his industry has netted him a substantial fortune. He has a private library of 3500 volumes, traveled extensively, and acquired a wealth of general information and culture which reduced to a minimum the disadvantages of a curtailed school training. And indeed, the kind of education which is the result of large contact with men and affairs, should perhaps, be rated higher than any amount of mere book learning because of its more vital connection with the development of character and the determination of conduct, and Alva Adams possessed the order of mind which readily absorbed valuable lessons from all kinds of experience, and indicated such accumulated virtue thru the common lift of which he formed an important factor. Mr. Adams married Elle Nye in October 1872. Pueblo Chieftain - November 2, 1922 - Statesman Dies in Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan - Went There Three Weeks Ago – Was Thrice Governor, a Banker, Statesman, a Scholar and Prominent in Masonic Circles. Alva Adams is dead, His soul goes marching on. Three times Governor of Colorado, ranked among the first citizens of the state, banker, statesman, thinker, Inspector General of the Colorado jurisdiction of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, and one of the builders of Pueblo and one of the city's staunchest supporters. Alva Adams died about noon yesterday in Battle Creek, Michigan where he went three weeks ago to a sanitarium. Death was due to heart trouble caused by chronic diabetes from which Mr. Adams had long been a sufferer. Mrs. Adams was with him at the time of his death and the word was received in Pueblo in a telegram to their only son, Alva B. Adams. The body will be brought to Pueblo for burial, but definite funeral arrangements have not been made. Gov. Adams was 72 years old at the time of his death. He had been a permanent resident of Pueblo since 1882 when he came here from Alamosa and open a hardware store which is still in existence but which is now known as the Holmes Hardware company of which the governor had a half interest at the time of his death. His life reads like a romance. Born on a Wisconsin farm and without the advantages of a college education, he rose to a place in the hearts of Coloradoans, second to none. He rose to a place of prominence as a deep thinker and ranked among the most learned men of the country and besides accumulated a modest fortune by his honest business dealings. He brought a brother, suffering from tuberculosis to Colorado in 1872. They traveled overland in a prairie schooner. They tarried a short time in the Greeley region and then went to Manitou where they camped out for the benefit of the brother's health. Later Alva secured employment hauling ties from the mountains to the right of way where the Denver and Rio Grande railroad was being constructed. This lasted but a short time for he became acquainted with a lumber and hardware dealer and obtained employment in this business. Adams erected a small building on the present site of Colorado Springs and there housed the stock and conducted the store. Then he purchased the business from his employer and later took a partner. Leaving the partner in charge of the business, Adams came to Pueblo in 1873 and opened a hardware store. He did not stay long here but sold off part of his stock and moved the remainder to Del Norte long before the railroad entered that region. His store was successful and when the railroad entered Fort Garland, Adams moved his store to that point and later to Alamosa. He established branches in Telluride, Durango, Gunnison and Quray. He came to Pueblo the second time in 1882 and opened the hardware store that later was to become one of the largest in Colorado. In 1889 he helped to organize the Pueblo Savings and Trust company and was president of that institution until the time of his death. He was interested in other business ventures and was the oldest living director in point of continuous service of the International Trust company of Denver. Despite business, Mr. Adams had time for other things. He was always an ardent Democrat and soon entered politics. While always mindful of the necessity of making a living, Mr. Adams found time for reading and study to overcome the deficiency caused by the lack of a college education in his early life. In politics he has quite a record. When 26 years old he was elected a member of the state legislature from Rio Grande county. In 1884 he was candidate on the Democratic ticket for governor but was defeated. He ran again in 1886 and was elected. He ran a second time in 1896 and won the election. In 1904 he was a candidate again and apparently won the election. However a contest was brought by James Peabody, the Republican candidate and the matter finally was placed in the hands of the state legislature. The legislature ruled against Adams, ousted him and seated Peabody with an agreement that Peabody should resign and let Jesse McDonald, the lieutenant governor on the Republican side, take the place of governor. This was after Adams had served about three months of his term. As a man of letters, Gov. Adams was widely known. His library was probably the largest private collection of books in the state. The governor was familiar with the contents of all of the books and not only did he widen his knowledge from the books he read but traveled extensively in the past 25 years, visiting many foreign countries and being a keen observer, learned much of the habits and customs of people in all sections of the world. As a speaker, Gov. Adams was a powerful and convincing orator. He was on the programs of most of the prominent events in Pueblo as well as in the state. Years ago he was made a 33rd degree Mason and upon the death of Senator Henry M. Teller, Mr. Adams was made inspector general of the Colorado district of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rites of Freemasonry. He was possessed of great literary ability and his prepared speeches were models of English. He wrote a book dealing with career of Napoleon and the work is characterized as a wonderful study of the great Frenchman. He delighted to speak of Colorado and its wonderful opportunities and among his greatest speeches was one on "Apples and Alfalfa." On his last trip abroad he visited the islands of the Pacific, China and Russia, and it was during this trip that he wrote the will of Madame Nordica, the famous singer. She was taken ill while a passenger on the steamer on which Governor Adams was traveling and he drew up the legal document disposing of her property. This was just before the outbreak of the World War. Not until the death of the famous singer was it disclosed that Governor Adams had drawn the will, this work having been near the coast of Java. Governor Adams was a nationally known Democrat and personally acquainted with the foremost Democrats. During the Wilson administration it was reported several times that he was under consideration for a place in the cabinet. When President Wilson appeared in Pueblo on the memorable tour which resulted in the collapse of president, Governor Adams presided at the meeting in Memorial Hall. He was a warm friend of William Jennings Bryan and when Bryan appeared here several years ago he was a guest at the home of Governor Adams. Practically every prominent Democrat who came here to speak was entertained by the former governor. Mr. and Mrs. Alva B. Adams left at midnight last night for the east to meet Mrs. Adams and bring the body of the former governor back to Pueblo.

Adams, Alva Blanchard
Alva Blanchard Adams - Pueblo Chieftain - December 3, 1941 - Alva Blanchard Adams was born in Del Norte, Rio Grande County, Colorado on October 29, 1875. He was the son of Alva Adams and Ella (Nye) Adams, the only child to live past infancy to this couple. Alva's father, Alva, ran a successful hardware business in southern Colorado, and was, even at the time of Alva Blanchard Adams' birth, entering into the world of politics. The Adams family had moved to Alamosa by 1880, and on to Pueblo by 1882. When Alva B. Adams was 12, his father was elected to be governor of Colorado. Alva Adams Sr. served as governor from 1887 to 1889, 1897 to 1899, and for several months in 1905. He was enormously popular with the people. Clearly public service was in young Alva B. Adams' blood. Alva B. Adams attended the common schools of southern Colorado, wherever he lived at the time. He went on to attend Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. Phillips Academy was a very exclusive, private high school, and was one of the oldest and finest schools in the United States. Many sons of dignitaries attended there including the nephews of George Washington. Alva graduated from Phillips in 1893. He went on to Yale University, graduating from there in 1896. Alva B. attended Columbia Law School, graduating with a law degree in 1899. He was admitted to the bar in Colorado in 1899, and commenced practice as an attorney in Pueblo, Colorado. Alva B. married Yorke Clida Moses on August 10, 1904 in Pueblo County. However, the marriage was short-lived. Less than a year later, young Clida died shortly after an operation at the age of 27. Alva B. Adams married a second time to Elizabeth L. Matty on October 25, 1909 in Denver County, Colorado. Elizabeth was born on May 4, 1889 in Colorado, but both of her parents were from France. Alva and Elizabeth had the following children: Ella Adams, born on November 14, 1910; Elizabeth Adams, born about 1914; Alva B. Adams Jr., born on October 21, 1915; and William H. Adams, born on May 3, 1919. During this period of time, Alva and his family always made their home with Alva's parents. They were a prosperous family, and typically had several servants that lived with them. Adams became a county attorney for Pueblo County in 1909. He was a member of the charter convention of Pueblo in 1911. Also in 1911, he ceased being a county attorney and became the city attorney of Pueblo, serving in that capacity until 1915. He also served as a regent for the State University of Colorado in 1911 and 1912. In addition to his Pueblo law practice, Adams was for a time president of the Pueblo Savings and Trust Company, vice president of the Western National Bank, and a director of the Standard Fire Brick Company. During World War I, Alva was called into service. He served as a major in the Judge Advocate General's Department from 1918 to 1919. In May of 1923, Alva was appointed as a Democrat to the United States Senate to fill a vacancy caused by the death of Senator Samuel D. Nicholson. Alva served from May 17, 1923 through November 30, 1924. He ran for office again in 1924 for the other senate seat, but was unsuccessful. He returned home to Pueblo and resumed his law practice. Alva was very involved in the Pueblo community. He was a member of the Freemasons, the Shriners, and the Elks Club. Adams was elected to the United States Senate in 1932, and then reelected in 1938. In March 1933, he served as chairman of the Committee on Irrigation and Reclamation, a position he filled until his death. He also served on the Committee on Public Lands and Surveys. During these years in office, water shortages became an issue in Colorado. People began to seriously consider the idea of boring a tunnel through the Continental Divide in northern Colorado to carry water from the Colorado River east and north to the Front Range of Colorado to provide water for irrigation. Adams worked hard to get Congress to fund and construct this project, called the "Colorado-Big Thompson Project." After years of planning, excavation from the East Portal of the project began on June 23, 1940, just southwest of Estes Park, Colorado. Work went on simultaneously from each side of the tunnel. Excavation crews spent four years, from 1940 to 1944, drilling the tunnel. Work stopped twice because of wartime demands on labor and materials. When the two crews met on June 10, 1944, they were off by less than the width of a penny. During the next three years, the tunnel was lined with concrete and readied for water deliveries. Alva suffered a heart attack on November 26, 1941. Initially, the effects were not severe, and he seemed to be recovering fairly well. However, the next day, the doctors ordered a full rest for six to eight weeks, as they had diagnosed coronary thrombosis. He took a turn for the worse a few days later. Alva B. Adams died on December 1, 1941 in Washington, D. C., due to a heart attack. He was 66 years old. He died just days before Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese. Alva's body was returned home to Pueblo accompanied by a huge entourage of 25 members of congress as well as his family. It was one of the biggest congressional delegations that had ever accompanied the body of one of their deceased members. Alva Adams was laid to rest in Roselawn Cemetery in Pueblo. The following is a copy of Alva's obituary. "Senator Alva Blanchard Adams. Masonic burial services Thursday 2:30 p.m. at the family home, 102 West Orman. Body will lie in state between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the residence. Colorado Springs Gazette - December 2, 1941 - Funeral Train Leaves Today – Delegation of 25 To Bring Adams Home; Rites Thursday - The body of Sen. Alva B. Adams (D, Colo.), who died in Washington early today, five days after a heart attack, will be taken home to Pueblo, Colo., tomorrow evening in the company of 25 members of congress.  It will be one of the largest congressional delegations ever to accompany the body of a deceased member. Adams, 66, was chairman of the public lands committee and of the deficiency appropriations committee.  In private life, he was a banker and an attorney." Johnson said Adams' body would be taken to Colorado in a special car, in which members of the immediate family would ride, on the train bearing the delegation. The senator's death was unexpected by even his close friends.  He had suffered the heart attack last Tuesday night, but the next day made a brief visit to his office.  Later that day he was ordered to bed by his physicians, who diagnosed his trouble as coronary thrombosis after consultation. A complete rest of six weeks to two months was ordered.  Sunday night the senator's condition took a turn for the worse, and he died at 3:30 a.m. today. Wallace, Ickes Pay Tribute Vice President Wallace and Secretary Ickes were among many who expressed sympathy to the family and paid tribute to Adams. Ickes said in a statement tonight that he felt Adams "literally died in harness," never sparing himself.  He added he had a feeling of personal affection for the senator, and had relied on him for wise counsel in matters affecting the interior department, not only in Colorado but in the whole west. While the nation will feel his loss," Ickes stated, "it will be particularly acute in the west, which he knew and loved and whose interests he always had at heart.  As chairman of the public lands and surveys committee of the senate and member of the irrigation and reclamation committee, he made a substantial contribution to the up-building of the west.  He was concerned not only about the development, but about the conservation of our natural resources." Father and Uncle Prominent - Senator Adams was the son and nephew of prominent men in the history of Colorado government. His father, Alva Adams, who died November 1, 1922, was twice governor of Colorado, his uncle, William H. (Billy) Adams, 80, served three terms as the state's chief executive after nearly 40 years in the Colorado legislature.  The uncle, who retired from public life in 1933 to take up residence at Alamosa, Colo., said the death of the senator "is a profound shock to me." "We knew Alva had suffered a heart attack last week, but we had been assured it was not serious.  Alva had been the healthiest member of our family.  The death of Alva is a great loss to us.  We had been very proud of him." Senator Adams was born at Del Norte, Colo., October 29, 1875.  He was educated in Colorado public schools and at Phillips Andover academy, Andover, Mass., Yale and Columbia universities.  He received his bachelor of philosophy degree from Yale in 1895 and bachelor of laws degree from Columbia in 1899. Practiced Law at Pueblo - He returned to Colorado that same year and began practicing law at Pueblo.  He was Pueblo county attorney from 1901 to 1910 and was city attorney for four years beginning in 1911. He was appointed to the senate in 1923 on the death of Sen. Samuel Nicholson, and was elected to six-year terms in 1932 and 1938.  Adams became Colorado's senior senator in January 1937, when the late Sen. T. P. Costigan retired because of illness. In addition to his Pueblo law practice, Adams was for a time president of the Pueblo Savings and Trust company, vice president of the Western National bank, and a director of the Standard Fire Brick company. He was a major in the judge advocate's general's department during the World war. At his bedside when death came were Mrs. Adams, the former Elizabeth Matty of Denver, whom he married October 25, 1909; a son, Alva B., and a daughter, Mrs. Joseph A. Uhl.  Also surviving are another son, William H. and another daughter, Mrs. James W. Booth. Hoped to Return to Law - Senator Adams had remarked often to friends that he hoped to return to his Pueblo law practice at the end of his senate term. In 1939 he commented that "politically, I have a commission that's still good for five years and I trust the good Lord will help me say goodbye to office-holding when that runs out." Adams was the third Colorado congressman to die in office in the past two years.  Rep. Edward T. Taylor, dean (?) of congress in point of years, died last September; Rep. John A. Martin died December 23, 1939. In addition to being chairman of the public lands and surveys and deficiency appropriations committee, he was a member of the rules, banking and currency, and irrigation and reclamation committee. Colorado Springs Gazette - December 2, 1941 - Carr Pays Tribute To Senator Adams - Tribute to the character and ability of Senator Adams, and praise of his long work in congress were not confined today to men of his own political faith.  Governor Carr, a republican, said that Senator Adams was "above partisanship" in times of national crisis. The chief executive was visibly shocked and moved at word of Senator Adams death in Washington.  He had often expressed admiration regarding the manner in which Senator Adams had conducted his office. "The people of Colorado mourn the passing of a real statesman," he said.  "Alva B. Adams symbolized everything that was fine and big, as a public servant, the needs of his country and his people were always uppermost in his thoughts.  It will be a long time before we see his likes again." Lieut. Gov. John C. Vivian, at Montrose today, added that "the state and nation have lost a valuable statesman." Labor Mourns Friend - "Colorado and the nation have suffered an irreparable loss in the untimely passing of our senior United States senator," Frank Hatterly, district president of the United Mine Workers and state CIO leader, declared. "The senator was one of the most outstanding, able, fearless and constructive statesmen of his time.  He cannot be replaced. "Labor mourns the loss of a true friend and a champion of its cause." - Byron Rogers, democratic state chairman for Colorado said: "The untimely death of Alva B. Adams removes from the civil and political life of Colorado one of its outstanding leaders.  Senator Adams' known devotion to his friends and his utterly sincere desire to study all problems to the benefit of Colorado made his an outstanding leader."

Adams, R. G.
R. G. Adams - Western Newspaper Union News Service – November 9, 1913 – The most tragic battle in the history of the strike struggle in the southern fields took place Saturday afternoon at the Gene Loughead ranch, three miles west of the mountain town of La Veta, when an automobile containing four guards, the driver and one miner was ambushed by a gang of men and three of them killed and two wounded. The Dead – Harry Bryan, 1832 Ogden Street, Denver, captain of guards; Walter Whitten, Carlton hotel, Denver, guard; Luke Terry, Colorado Springs, chauffeur. The Wounded – R. G. Adams, Arriba, Colo., shot through left arm and right foot; William Gamblin, miner, shot through right lung. The place where the shooting took place is ideal for an ambush. The road winds out of La Veta and runs along and up a hill. At the right of the hill, where the road starts up, is the Loughead reservoir held in by a dirt embankment. It was from this embankment that the strikers did their firing. The riddled automobile stood Saturday night in the same spot where the stiffening hands of the chauffeur had stopped it. Terry slipped down in his seat still holding the wheel. Fifty yards back Captain Bryan lay face downward with his gun under him. Whitten, twenty yards back of the machine, lay on his back. The machine was riddled with bullets. Gamblin is at the Owen ranch. He is not in a dangerous condition. R. G. Adams was taken to the office of Dr. Lamm. Terror Rules Coal District – Walsenburg, Colorado, November 10, 1913 – With R. G. Adams, the fourth of the men shot in the ambuscade near La Veta Saturday afternoon, dead in the hospital at Pueblo, the feeling of horror in this district over the killing has intensified. That the reign of terror is on again is freely expressed by citizens. The strained feeling that pervaded both La Veta and Aguilar during Saturday and ended in killings, was felt at Walsenburg up until a late hour Sunday night. It broke once when strikers caught Neal McDermott, fire-boss from the Maitland mine, before the Star theatre and beat him. Yuma Pioneer – November 21, 1913 – Chas. Richards, Chas. Shepard, Edward Krupa, Peter Rich, Daniel and Edward Richards all reported to have confessed to shooting from ambush R. G. Adams, Harry Bryan, Walter Whitten, Luke Terry and William Gamblin, at La Veta, on the 8th. Weekly Ignacio Chieftain - March 5, 1915 - Seven Miners Freed - Both Sides in Strike War Surprised at Jury's Speed - La Veta Man Acquitted of Killing Chauffeur Indicted Anew for R. E. Adams' Death - Pueblo - Eighteen minutes from the time the case had been given to it, a jury in the District Court here acquitted seven La Veta miners, charged with the murder of Luke Terry, a chauffeur. It is said to be the quickest verdict ever returned in a case of equal importance in Colorado. Four men were slain in the battle that let up to the trial, but the trial was for the death of Terry alone. The trial, including the selection of the jury, had lasted eight weeks to a day. Six weeks were occupied in picking the jury. The defendants were Marcus Martinolich, Pete Rich, Charles, Ed and Dan Richards, Frank Kroupa and Charley Sheppard. All live at La Veta. Upon their return to their homes they will be arrested immediately on indictments returned recently by the Huerfano grand jury and charging them with slaying R. G. Adams, another member of the automobile party. Alamosa Independent Journal - April 6, 1916 - Eight former coal strikers, held in county jail for two years in connection with the killing of Luke Terry and several mine guards at La Veta, during the southern Colorado coal strike in 1913, were ordered released by Judge Essex in the District Court sustaining a motion by their attorney setting up the statue of limitation. They will be liberated within the next few days and will be removed to Walsenburg, it is said; to face grand jury charges involving the death of R. G. Adams, a mine guard. Bayfield Blade – April 7, 1916 – Eight Coal Strikers Released – Pueblo – Eight former coal strikers, held in the county jail for two years in connection with the killing of Luke Terry and several mine guards at La Veta, during the southern Colorado coal strike in 1913, were ordered released by Judge Essex in the District Court sustaining a motion by their attorney setting up the statute of limitation. They will be liberated within the next few days and will be removed to Walsenburg, it is said, to face grand jury charges involving the death of R. G. Adams, a mine guard. Huerfano World - October 31, 2002 – 1913 La Veta Massacre - Excerpted from article published October 31, 2002. Four men met sudden death on Nov. 8, 1913 outside of La Veta. The incident occurred near the beginning of the 1913-1914 coal strike which lasted over one year. One day a scab in Oakview named William Gamblin needed to see a dentist. The nearest one being in La Veta, Gamblin walked into town and received care. He then phoned to the mine and requested a ride back. Capt. H.F. Bryan, Driver Luke Ferry, W. H. Whitten and R. G. Adams, drove into town and picked up Gamblin. As they began their trip back to the mine, just as they began to drive up the incline just west of town, a fusillade of gunfire rained down upon them. An unknown number of men were secreted behind Lougheed dam on the top of the hill, and they continued firing until the four mine guards were still. All four guards were killed, but Gamblin somehow survived the attack without injury.

Adolphson, a well known bookkeeper and accountant, and one of the pioneer women of Leadville, passed away early yesterday morning at the family home, 144 South Toledo avenue, of an attack which had rendered her unconscious Sunday afternoon. Death was attributed to diabetes. Mrs. Adolphson was 60 years old. The ailment which caused her death had affected Mrs. Adolphson for over a year, but she had not been critically sick at any time until Sunday. On Saturday she had celebrated her sixtieth birthday, enjoying the anniversary happily with her husband and daughters, Miss Ella Adolphson and Mrs. John W. McMahon, the wife of the county clerk, and the McMahon children. She felt in excellent health during the day. On Sunday afternoon when Mrs. McMahon and the grandchildren were at the Adolphson home again, Mrs. Adolphson complained of not feeling very well, and lay down. A short time later she was seized with a sudden attack which caused her to lose consciousness. She did not come to again, and shortly after four o'clock yesterday morning she passed quietly away. Mrs. Adolphson had lived in Leadville since 1879 and she was loved for her gentle and kindly ways by a large circle of friends. She was born in Sweden on June 5, 1855. At the age of nine she came to the United States, and ultimately settled with her parents in Michigan. In 1879 she came to Leadville, which had since been her home. She was married here to Mr. Adolphson on January 9, 1884. Six children were born to them, of whom two survive, two sons and two daughters having died here. These two children are Mrs. J. W. McMahon and Miss Ella Adolphson, who lives at the family home. Mrs. F. W. Catlon, formerly a resident here who recently removed to Denver, is a daughter of Mrs. Adolphson by a former marriage. She arrived in the city last night after receiving word of her mother's unexpected sickness and death. Mrs. Adolphson's mother, Mrs. Christina Carlson; a brother, Victor Carlson; and a sister, Mrs. Isabell Penthena, all reside in Pueblo. The mother, who is an energetic and active woman despite her advanced age of over 80 years, visited at the Adolphson home for several weeks until only a short time ago, when she returned to her own home in Pueblo. Word was sent to the relatives in Pueblo, and they are expected to arrive here today or tomorrow. The Adolphsons are widely known in Leadville through their long residence in the city, and Mrs. Adolphson had endeared herself to all who knew her. Her sudden passing yesterday morning caused general regret among her wide circle of friends. Arrangements were made yesterday afternoon to hold funeral services at the family home at two o'clock, Wednesday afternoon. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – June 14, 1915 – From Thursday's Daily – Mrs. Albertina Adolphson, the late wife of A. P. Adolphson, who passed away early Monday morning following a brief illness, was laid at rest in the I. O. O. F. cemetery yesterday afternoon. At the residence at 144 South Toledo avenue, where the services were held the attendance of friends who paid their last respects to the pioneer woman, was large, filling the home to overflowing. The casket was banked deeply with flowers which were their tributes. The Rev. S. E. Johnson, pastor of the Swedish Lutheran church, conducted the services, assisted by a large choir in which he also sang and which was composed of Mrs. Oscar Bonthron, Mrs. Fred Moosberg, Miss Judith Nord, Charles Nordberg and Melchoir Nordberg, who were accompanied by Mrs. Albert Peterson. The beautiful selections, which formed the services with the minister's consoling address and prayer, were "Jerusalem, Jerusalem" and "We Shall Sleep But Not Forever." At the close of the house services, the floral tributes which had surrounded the bier, were conveyed at the head of the cortege to the cemetery in a motor car. A large part of the attending friends drove to the Odd Fellows' cemetery, making a long procession as they passed up Harrison avenue to Ninth street. At the graveside, the Rev. Johnson observed the burial rites of the church and the choir sang a closing hymn, "Jesus, Lover of My Soul." The pall bearers were A. G. Thomson, Axel Moosberg, Joseph W. Clarke, J. A. Boline, George Cramer and C. E. Tallman. Mrs. Isabell Penthena, of Pueblo, a sister of Mrs. Adolphson, and Mrs. F. W. Catlon, of Denver, a daughter by a former marriage, arrived in the city to attend the services. Mrs. Christina Carlson, of Pueblo, the mother of Mrs. Adolphson, and Victor Carlson, a brother, were unable to come owing to sickness, Mrs. Carlson being a woman of advanced age. Mrs. Harold Herr, a warm friend of the family, also attended from Salida. Mrs. Adolphson is survived in Leadville by her husband, and two daughters, Mrs. J. W. McMahon, the wife of the county clerk, and Miss Ella Adolphson.

Aguilar, Frank
Frank Aguilar – Colorado Public Defender - August 13, 1937 - and Joe Arridy (a.k.a. Arrdy) (January 6, 1939). Frank Aguilar, Pueblo. (H-W and Other-W). Asphyxiation. Aguilar and Arridy were convicted of the August 16, 1936, murder of Dorothy Drain. The men were accused of breaking into the Drain home, sexually assaulting Dorothy, and then killing her and seriously wounding her younger sister with a hatchet. In 1925, Arridy, who was born in Pueblo shortly after his parents immigrated from Syria, had been adjudicated as mentally incompetent and sent to "[t]he State Home and Training School for Mental Defectives" in Grand Junction. At the institution, his IQ was measured at forty-six. He was released after a nine-month stay, but three years later returned to the institution. In 1936, he walked away from the Home and was not seen until his arrest in Wyoming sixteen days later—ten days after the murder. There he offered the first of many confessions to the crime, with each confession changing a bit to conform with newly discovered facts. Arridy's arrest surprised officials in Pueblo, who had already arrested Aguilar, a Mexican national, for the murder and discovered the murder weapon in Aguilar's home. The Wyoming authorities then secured a confession from Arridy in which he said that he had acted alone in the murder. A jury trial first was conducted to determine if he was sane, where three psychiatrists testified that Arridy had the mind of a five or six-year-old child. Law enforcement officials, however, claimed that he was sane, and that position prevailed, even without the support of any mental health experts. Arridy was then convicted of murder in a separate jury proceeding, in which the defense attorney again focused on proving that Arridy was insane rather than challenging the "evidence." The conviction was affirmed on appeal, and further attempts to show that Arridy was mentally incompetent for execution failed, each time by four-to-three votes in the Colorado Supreme Court. Meanwhile, Aguilar was executed in 1937. During the execution, one of the official witnesses, Adlai S. "Ad" Hamilton, a Pueblo resident and conductor for the Missouri Pacific Railroad, had a heart attack and died. During his eighteen months on death row, Arridy became close friends with the warden, Roy Best. The warden, who spoke out against the pending execution, bought him toys, picture books, and for Christmas in 1938, a wind-up toy train that quickly became Arridy's favorite toy. Arridy's appellate attorney was Colorado's future attorney general, (Mr.) Gail Ireland. Later, the case formed the basis for a seminal book-length case study written by Robert Perske. Among other things, the book explains how the desire to please through false confessions, coupled with ineffective assistance of counsel and an environment in which there was little concern for understanding the mentally retarded, may very well have cost an innocent person his life.

Aguilar, Jose Ramon
Jose Raymon Aguilar - Walsenburg World - January 10, 1929 - Aguilar Founder Succumbs to Pneumonia at Home Yesterday - J. Raymon Aguilar, Prominent Pioneer, had a Varied Career; Was Town Founder - Funeral Saturday Morning - Was Prominent Farmer, Stockman, Community Builder, Legislator and Commissioner - Death yesterday morning claimed J. Raymon Aguilar, 77-year-old pioneer of southern Colorado, and founder of the town southwest of here which bears his name. Aguilar, long prominent in development of the resources of southern Colorado, succumbed at his home in Aguilar yesterday morning at 1:05 after a short illness. Pneumonia is given as the cause of his death. Aguilar was born in Mora County, New Mexico, February 10, 1852. As early as 1879 he came to Las Animas County Colorado, where he engaged in farming stock raising. Aguilar, a man possessed of all the qualities of the early western pioneers, soon saw the possibilities of southern Colorado and set to work in development projects. He engaged in farming and stock raising in Las Animas County as soon as he came there. It was through him that the town of Aguilar was founded and because of his efforts in getting the town started and the help he gave it in the early days the town was given his name. Aguilar was long prominent in politics in Las Animas County. He elected a member of the state legislature in 1891 and re-elected to the same position in 1887. For three consecutive terms he served county commissioner of Las Animas County, and his service in that capacity has been recognized as very meritorious. His progressive influence and far sightedness in the matter of future development of the resources of southern Colorado still regarded as a big influence in the rapid progress made in this section in subsequent years. Aguilar had a reputation of being efficient in all his work. His sincerity and integrity had never been questioned. A born leader, he was looked upon by many in that section, respected by all who knew him, and had a powerful influence in that community. Surviving him are his wife, Mrs. Versove Aguilar; three daughters and one son, Mrs. Alphonso Lugar, Alliance, Nebraska; Mrs. J.W. Craig, Los Angeles, California; Mrs. W. E. Murphy, Salt Lake City, Utah; Jose Ramon Aguilar Jr. Aguilar. There are a number of grandchildren. There is one sister surviving, Mrs. Epimenia A.

Aguirre, Fidel
Fidel Aguirre - World Independent - May 16, 1938 - Peralta Brothers Charged With Killing Of Sheriff Fidel Aguirre. Trace of Blood Found on Shoes May Prove Gardner Boys' Guilt. Mob Swarms County Jail; Sheriff Swift Takes Couple to Trinidad Jail for Safety; Brother's Surrender with Hands In Air When Officers' Raid Home. Blood stains found on shoes and shirts worn by Paul and Peter Peralta of Gardner, may lead to their conviction for the fatal beating of Deputy Sheriff Fidel Aguirre. When a small army of men, bristling with high-powered rifles, surrounded the Peralta ranch home, eight miles south of Gardner, early this morning, the youths walked from the house with their hands in the air. The brothers, both in their late twenties, refused to make a statement to Sheriff Claud Swift who whisked them away to the Las Animas County Jail in Trinidad. A mob of over 100 citizens waited at the county jail here while officers traveled to Gardner to make the arrest. Rumors of possible violence to the prisoners caused officers to lodge the men in the Trinidad jail. Aguirre, on of Southern Colorado's outstanding peace officers and a member of the Huerfano County High School Board, was beaten to death while patrolling a dance at the Gardner Community Hall Saturday night. - Eyewitness Found - Sheriff Swift reports that he has located a witness to the brawl. It was upon a tip-off from this witness that the Peralta brothers were arrested, according to reports, Aguirre had argued with one of the Peralta boys earlier in the evening. One of the brothers is alleged to have called the officer from the dance hall shortly before midnight, and it was then that the beating occurred. Sheriff Swift has the death weapon in his possession. The blood stained fence post, used for a club, was found near Aguirre's beaten and bleeding body. The post had a huge spike in one end, acting as a bayonet to pierce the officer's body. It is believed the first blow from the club struck Aguirre on the back of the skull. The witness, on whose testimony the crime was reconstructed, is reported to have pulled the assailants off of the nearly dead man. It is said that after Aguirre fell to the ground he was beaten and kicked. Besides a fractured skull he incurred lacerations about the throat and neck. His lower jaw was shattered in three places. He was breathing heavily when rushed to the Lamme hospital in Walsenburg, but expired about 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon, having never regained consciousness. - Mabry Questions Couple - Sheriff Swift and a posse questioned persons attending the dance, and Sunday combed the hills near, Gardner in search of the Peralta boys. It was not until this morning that they were seen and later arrested. Upon their arrival in Trinidad their clothing was closely inspected. Shirts and shoes they were wearing had been recently washed, reports state, however, a few traces of blood were said to be found. District Attorney John N. Mabry together with Sheriff Claud Swift and under Sheriff Carl Swift questioned the couple. The youths refused to talk, giving only alibis of little significance. Officers seem positive they have the right men. Aguirre is survived by his wife Josephine, and eight children, four boys and four girls. Funeral arrangements will be announced by Furphy-Brother's Mortuary as soon as complete. Deputy Sheriff Fidel Aguirre - Deputy Aguirre died in the line of duty by Joseph G. Sandoval. The News recently reported that the Colorado memorial for law enforcement does not list 35 officers who died in the line of duty. One of those officers was Fidel Aguirre. My family has roots in Southern Colorado before Colorado became a state. Since the May 14, 1938 incident in which Deputy Sheriff Fidel Aguirre of the Huerfano County Sheriff's Department was killed, oral history has kept the story alive. My uncle, Ralph Garcia, currently from Alamosa but formerly from Huerfano County area of Gardner and Farisita, wrote a balled I titled "El Corrido de Fidel Aguirre". The story begins a few weeks before May 14, 1938. Aguirre apparently had investigated a rustling incident and arrested two brothers, Placeres and Pablo Peralta. Some reports have suggested that a trial ended in a hung jury and the matter was pending when Aguirre died. Oral history tells that the deputy had entered the Peralta's home and seized a roast of lamb, or goat from the oven. The manner in which this story is told indicates that the deputy's behavior was untoward and heavy-handed. On May 13, Manuel Barela of Gardner visited the Huerfano County Sheriff's Department to find someone who could provide security at a dance scheduled for the next evening at the fairgrounds hall in Gardner. The deputy who usually provided security had a trip planned, so Barela arranged for Aguirre to provide security for the dance from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on May 14 for a fee of $2.75. Gardner is an unincorporated village approximately 25 or 30 miles west of Walsenburg on Colorado Highway 69. According to testimony given to the coroner's jury, Pablo Peralta became engaged in a dispute with his wife inside the dance hall, Aguirre took him outside. The oral history of the event has it that one of the Peralta brothers created a disturbance as a ruse to lure the deputy outside. Three Medina brothers, Joseph, Louis, and Paul, who were at the dance asked the deputy if he needed assistance, but the deputy replied that he needed no help. Outside the dance hall, the deputy confronted the Peralta Brothers, and while he spoke with one, the other struck him from his blind side. They then attacked the deputy with their fists, a big stick, and other unknown objects. Although Aguirre had a sidearm, he did not use it. A small fence post with a large nail at the end was one of the instruments used in this attack. I can still hear my late grandmother, Theresa de Jesus Garcia, telling me that they pummeled him "como se era una vivora" - as if he were a rattlesnake. The Medina brothers heard a commotion outside and found the deputy on the ground suffering from grave injuries. They took the deputy to a doctor in Gardner. When the doctor either could not or would not help him, the Medina brothers loaded the deputy into their vehicle and transported him to Lamme Hospital in Walsenburg. They arrived at about 1 a.m. Aguirre died at about 3 p.m. According to medical testimony provided by Dr. S.J. Lamme to the coroner's jury, cause of death was shock, hemorrhage and a fracture of the skull causing a contusion of the brain. A two-inch fracture on the left side of the deputy's skull came from a blunt instrument according to Lamme. The deputy's lower jaw was fractured and there was another fracture at the articulation of the lower jaw with the skull on both sides. Two wounds made by a small sharp instrument had penetrated the larynx. Lamme found no wounds below the head, but inside of the deputy's mouth and cheeks were badly swollen and congested with blood so as to obstruct the throat. The coroner's jury concluded that Fidel Aguirre died "from wounds inflicted...while in the performance of duty." The jury concluded that the wounds resulted from a blunt instrument, such as a "fence post" and a sharp instrument "in the hands of Pete and Paul Peralta with feloniously (sic) intent." While I have not determined with certainty the penalty imposed on the Peralta brothers, I think that each served time in the state penitentiary. The capture of the brothers occurred at their home in Farisita, a small farming and ranching community east of Gardner. Through Sheriff Claude Swift and his posse made the arrest without incident a crowd had formed in Walsenburg awaiting their arrival. The sheriff transported the Peraltas to Trinidad, bypassing the business district in Walsenburg in order to avoid the angry group. Last June, I spoke with Capt. Keith Dameron of the Colorado State Patrol, who informally oversees the state memorial. He indicated then that no names of old-time deaths of law officers were being accepted. However, with renewed interest, perhaps this might be rectified. [Joseph G. Sandoval is a professor in the Criminal Justice and Criminology Department of Metropolitan State College of Denver.]

Mongolia Allen – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – July 21, 1919 – Bullets for Two Women – When Edna Morris, Returned Soldier's Wife, Refused to Drop Divorce Suit, Husband Wounded Her and Killed Friend – Tragedy at Pueblo – Pueblo, Colo., July 16. – Apparently unrepentant, Ernest Morris, age 28 years, a returned soldier, occupies a solitary cell in the Pueblo county jail tonight charged with the murder of Mrs. Mongolia Allen, aged 44, and inflicting serious injury to his wife, Mrs. Edna Morris, age 24 years, who is in a local hospital dangerously wounded. Morris admits the killing and declares that he shot his wife because she refused to drop divorce proceedings instituted last month and that he shot Mrs. Allen, who runs a boarding house where Mrs. Morris was employed, because she was aiding his wife in securing the divorce. Morris went to the boarding house at noon shortly after he arrived on a Denver and Rio Grande passenger train from Mustang, Colo., fifty miles south of Pueblo, where he had been employed on a construction gang of the Western Union Telegraph company. He entered the place by the kitchen and found his wife there. He asked that she drop the suit for divorce, but she declared she hadn't time to talk about it then. Mrs. Allen ordered him out of the house and he drew the revolver and shot three times at his wife, neither shot proving immediately fatal, and then fired one shot at Mrs. Allen. The bullet struck her in the neck and severed the jugular vein and the spinal cord. She died immediately. Morris then stepped into the dining room where the tables, well laden with food awaited the coming of the boarders. The shots attracted a large crowd and Herman Patron, a special agent for a local mercantile establishment, was in the crowd. Patron carries a deputy sheriff's commission but had no gun with him. A grocer nearby gave him a revolver and Patron walked into the place thru the kitchen, pointed his revolver at Morris and ordered him to surrender. He did without further ado. When taken to the police station by officers, who arrived on the scene shortly after Patron placed Morris under arrest, he admitted his part in the crime and was turned over to the sheriff to await trial. Morris was in the government war service as a spruce tree worker and was mustered out of the service as an infantryman in December. He returned to La Junta, Colo., where his wife and two children were residing with her parents. Later they came to Pueblo. In her suit for divorce, Mrs. Morris alleged cruelty as the grounds and stated that they were married in 1910 and that during their married life he repeatedly abused her and beat her and often threatened to kill her. The first hearing of the case was held in the county court July 10.

Allen, Mr.
Mr. Allen – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – August 20, 1874 – From the Enterprise we learn that on Thursday last, the body of a dead man (American) was found on the Upper Purgatoire, about 35 miles from Trinidad.  On examination it appeared that he had been murdered, a bullet wound being found in the head.  He is supposed to be a Mr. Allen, a stranger in the vicinity, who had recently come in to the neighborhood with about 2,000 head of sheep.  Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – August 20, 1874 – M. D. Thatcher Esq., has received a telegram from the friends of Mr. Allen, the sheep owner who was killed on the Purgatoire, about thirty miles from Trinidad, a few days since, asking him to send the particulars of the murder and to have the property of the deceased taken care of.  Mr. Allen's friends reside in Michigan.  There seems to be a fatality connected with the flock of sheep owned by Mr. Allen.  We learn they are (the) same animals that were owned by Mr. Cater when he was murdered, near this city some time since.

Allen, Zack G.
Zack G. Allen – Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – August 13, 1875 – Tragedy in Del Norte – Shooting of Zach Allen – Our Del Norte correspondents send us an account of an unfortunate affair which occurred in that place on the morning of the 9th instant, which will probably result in the death of Z. G. Allen, formerly a citizen of Pueblo, for four years sheriff of this county, and well known to all of the old residents of Southern Colorado. The facts of the case are as follows: On the 8th instant, Allen, who is deputy sheriff of Rio Grande County, and Jack Lewis, a Del Norte policeman, arrested in that town two Mexicans who were accused of stealing horses at Lake City. During the evening Allen learned that a party of Mexicans had determined to break into the jail and liberate their companions. To prevent the occurrence of any such unfortunate event, Allen posted Jack Lewis in the jail, armed him with a gun loaded with duck shot, and having agreed upon a countersign ordered Lewis to shoot anyone who came near the jail during the night and failed to give the proper answer when challenged. About two o'clock in the morning, Allen, for some purpose not explained (perhaps to see if his sentinel was watchful) went to the jail and as he approached the building was challenged by Lewis and failed to respond. The latter not knowing who might be approaching in the darkness, fired his gun at the party approaching. The man fell, and Lewis, on going outside, found that he had shot Allen, the charge having lodged in the latter's stomach and right wrist, shattering the latter badly. The parties were only four feet apart at the time the shot was fired. About twenty duck shot penetrated Allen's stomach, and his chances are exceedingly slim for recovery. His physician has but little hope and one of our correspondents thinks that before this writing Allen will have died. The unfortunate man blames nobody but himself and thinks he ought to have given the countersign agreed upon. We are well acquainted with Jack Lewis, and are satisfied that he thought he was doing his duty when he fired the shot. He and Allen were intimate friends, and went from here to Del Norte together a few weeks since. Lewis was formerly a soldier and had learned in the army, we presume, to obey orders. Under the circumstances no blame can possibly be attached to him. – Trinidad Enterprise – August 20, 1875 – Z. G. Allen, well known to some of our citizens, was accidentally shot at Del Norte the other day, from the effects of which he died last Tuesday. Daily Rocky Mountain News – August 17, 1875 – The Dead Deputy Sheriff – Of Z. G. Allen, who was shot by a jail guard, at Del Norte, Monday a week ago, and who has since died, the Pueblo Chieftain says: The deceased came to Colorado from Iowa in 1860, and shortly afterward settled in Pueblo. In 1867 he moved to the upper Huerfano, and was elected sheriff of Huerfano county. Having returned to Pueblo, he was, in 1869, elected sheriff of this county, and re-elected in 1871. In 1874 he went to Del Norte, where he has since resided, and has acted as deputy United States marshal, deputy sheriff and town marshal. No reason has been assigned for his visit to the jail at the extraordinary hour of two o'clock in the morning, and why he failed to answer to the guard's challenge, according to the arrangement made between them, is quite as incomprehensible. During Mr. Allen's visit to this city, in June, in attendance upon the United States court, he was in very low spirits, and it is thought by some that he went to the jail with the purpose of being shot. This, however, we are inclined to doubt, as he was a man of cheerful disposition, and not likely to be overcome by an attack of low spirits. The deceased was about forty-five years of age, and leaves a wife and family who have the sympathy of all who know them. He was at one time one of the most popular men in this locality, and his death will be regretted by many.

Allott, Gordon
Gordon Allott - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - January 18, 1989 - Former Sen. Gordon Allott Dies - Colorado Native Called "Favorite Elder Statesman." ENGLEWOOD – Former U. S. Sen. Gordon Allott, a native Coloradoan who served 18 years in the Senate until his defeat in 1972, died of cancer Tuesday at Swedish Medical Center.  He was 82. Allott died at 7:22 a.m. Tuesday.  Hospital spokeswoman Beverly Jacobsen said Allott was admitted to the hospital Dec. 27 and then transferred to Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital for a time.  He returned to Swedish on Monday, Jacobsen said. The funeral was scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday at Christ Episcopal Church in Denver. Allott, a Republican, held public office for much of his adult life, culminating in his three terms in the U. S. Senate from 1955 to 1973.  He was thwarted in his bid for a fourth Senate term by Democrat Floyd Haskell in the 1972 general election.  He had made his home in Englewood in recent years. Born in Pueblo on Jan. 2, 1907, Allott graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder in 1927 and from the CU law school in 1929. In 1930, he moved to Lamar, where he practiced law and became Prowers County attorney, serving in that capacity during 1934 and from 1941-46.  He also was Lamar city attorney from 1937-41 and director of the First Federal Savings & Loan Association of Lamar from 1934-60. During World War II, Allott was a major in the Army Air Corps.  Afterward he served as district attorney of the 15th Judicial District from 1946-48. Allott was Colorado's lieutenant governor from 1951-55, when he also served as vice chairman of the state Board of Parole. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1954 and re-elected in 1960 and 1966. Haskell, a Republican who joined the Democratic Party because of his feelings about the Vietnam War, defeated Allott in his re-election bid for a fourth term in 1972. During his tenure in the Senate, Allott served on the Senate Appropriations Committee and Senate Interior Committee, where he was directly involved in water, resource and Indian affairs.  After leaving office, he served on an advisory committee to the Interior Department during the Reagan administration. U.S. Rep. Joel Hefley, R-Colorado Springs, said he was "very saddened" by the news of Allott's death.  He described it as a "deep personal loss and a loss to the state of Colorado." "He rose higher than anyone we've sent to Washington in many years, maybe ever," Hefley said.  "I regarded him as our favorite elder statesman." Allott was a role model for young politicians, Hefley said, recalling his own days in state government.  "Here was a guy of great integrity at a time when I got into politics, at the tail end of Watergate," he said. "He was a guy who had been down the road in the state Legislature, who had been in congressional office," Hefley said.  "He was not far from the state office when I was in the state Capitol, so it was easy to run over." Allott came to Hefley's aid during his campaign for the U.S. House.  "When my predecessor decided to challenge me a year ago, Gordon Allott – without my asking – contacted me to ask what I can do to help, and that kind of support meant a lot." U.S. Sen. Bill Armstrong, R-Colo., called Allott "a personal friend and mentor whom I shall greatly miss."  Armstrong said Allott was "one of the most outstanding public servants in the history of Colorado.  He was a senator's senator and was enormously respected by his colleagues.  In terms of his accomplishments for Colorado, he was a leader of rare distinction. U.S. Rep. Hank Brown, R-Colo., said Allott was "a great public servant.  His All-American achievements in athletics were matched by a distinguished career at both state and federal level." On May 15, 1934, Allott married the former Welda Hall, who survives, along with two sons, Roger of Aurora and Gordon Jr. of Littleton, and three grandchildren.

Mrs. Isabel Amado - Independent - March 21, 1912 - Was It Suicide Or Murder? Shot through the heart with a 22 caliber rifle, the body of Mrs. Isabel Amado, aged 32, was found Sunday afternoon shortly before 5 o'clock in the bedroom of her house at Hoehne Creek, twelve miles east of Trinidad. Relatives of the dead woman, including her husband, Pedro Amado, maintain that the woman committed suicide, but an investigation by the coroner has developed evidence that tends to show the woman was shot, the body placed on the bed and the weapon placed beside her. The lock on the door was broken and there was a bullet hole in the partition which further establishes the theory of murder. At the time the woman was shot her father and five children were in the back yard. Her husband, Pedro, who was in the house, declares that his wife went into the room and locked the door and that shortly afterwards he heard a shot. Breaking in, he says he found her dead. He is unable to explain the bullet hole in the door. The authorities will hold him for investigation.

Anderson, Martin
Martin Anderson – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – February 10, 1919 – Around the City – From Friday's Daily – Telegram Clears Doubt on Anderson's Death – A telegram received yesterday morning by Alfred Pomeroy of 217 West Fifth street established the identity of "Martin Anderson of Leadville," reported dead at Pueblo, as Martin Anderson, for twenty-five years a carpenter and mine employe in the Leadville district. A news item which was filed early yesterday morning by the Associated Press gave Anderson's name as "Henderson," the error probably arising thru the haste to report his death before the wires closed at 2:30 a.m. Confusion all around resulted in getting news of the carpenter's death to Leadville. The undertakers at Pueblo evidently found Mr. Pomeroy's address and Mr. Anderson's membership card of the Eagles of Aerie No. 91 here, for the telegram sent here was addressed to John W. McMahon, who is secretary of the Eagles, and his address was given as 217 West Fifth street, which is Mr. Pomeroy's. Getting the message, Mr. McMahon turned it over to Mr. Pomeroy, who was a warm friend of the carpenter and a member with him in the local Brotherhood of Carpenters. Shortly before getting the message, Mr. Pomeroy met a friend who told him Anderson was dead. "Impossible," said Mr. Pomeroy. "I saw him just before he left Leadville and he was feeling first rate." Mr. Anderson was on his way to Hot Springs, Ark., where he hoped to improve in health after suffering for some time from what he told Charles Anderson, a neighbor tho not kin of the carpenter, was heart and kidney trouble. Mr. Pomeroy told him before he started east to be sure to carry with him a paper showing his (Mr. Pomeroy's) address so that he could be notified in case of the bearer's death, tho neither thot at the time that death was imminent. On reaching Pueblo, friends here believe, Mr. Anderson became too sick to continue his journey for which he had procured a thru ticket, and left the train to go to a hotel. He died at this hotel late in Wednesday night. Mr. Anderson's body will be brot here for burial, Mr. Pomeroy having sent instructions to the Pueblo undertakers last night to this effect. Funeral arrangements, which will be in charge of the local Eagles and the Brotherhood of Carpenters, will be announced later. Mr. Anderson lived alone at 526 East Third street. His carpenter shop was at 113 West Third street. Born in Sweden about fifty years ago, Anderson learned his trade as carpenter and joiner in that country, and then came to the United States while still young, about thirty years ago. He followed his trade in New York and Brooklyn for a number of years before finally coming to Leadville about 1890. Two brothers survive in Sweden. A cousin, whose name had not been learned last evening, resides here, and a nephew lives somewhere in the United States. A letter in the carpenter's effects found after his death at Pueblo, was addressed to Mr. Pomeroy and gave instructions as to disposal of his possessions. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – February 10, 1919 – Around the City – From Saturday's Daily – The funeral of the late Martin Anderson, whose body arrived here last evening from Pueblo on Rio Grande train No. 1, in charge of the Moynahan and O'Malia Undertaking company, will take place Sunday. The hour will be announced later.

Anderson, Shirley E.
Shirley E. Andersen - The Coloradoan - March 30, 2005 - Fort Collins, CO - Shirley Elleen "Cary" Andersen was born in Trinidad, Colo., on Nov. 19, 1934. She passed away March 26, 2005, in her home surrounded by her loving family. She was the first of four children born to James and Nell Cary. At the age of 2, her family moved to Fort Collins where she later graduated from Fort Collins High School, home of the Lambkins, in 1952. While in high school, Shirley met the love of her life, Lee Gale Andersen, a farm boy from eastern Colorado. They were united in marriage on Sept. 14, 1952. Lee and Shirley spent the first year of marriage living in Fort Collins while Lee attended Colorado A&M. They moved to the family farm the spring of 1953 to start their family. To this union, four children were born: Steven Jay, Cary Lee, Erin Elleen and James Iler. Shirley was raised a city gal until Lee won her heart and brought her out to the farm to raise their children. She was a little worried there wouldn't be very much socializing, but it didn't take long to embrace the beauty of the eastern plains. She said her favorite smell was the smell of the soil after a freshening rain shower. Because of her faith, she saw God's hands at work every day when she would look out and see the beauty in every tree, the sound of the meadowlarks and the waves of golden grain at harvest time. Shirley was a 4-H sewing leader for 15 years, a member of the United Methodist Church for 52 years and a dedicated board member of the Cooper-Clark Foundation. Shirley's passions in life included sewing, cooking for her family and harvest crew, and spending time with her family and friends. She always said her greatest accomplishments were her kids and grandkids. Later in life when her own children were raised, Shirley and Lee became mighty travelers with their good friends, Raymond and Marj Thompson. They would start each of their traveling expeditions by playing "On the Road Again" over the two-way radios and laughing together. They shared many fond memories of all their great adventures. Shirley is survived by her husband, Lee, of Genoa; children, Steve and wife, Susan, of Arriba, Cary and husband, Dennis Lohmeier, of Longmont, Erin and husband, Mike Burkett, of Colorado Springs, and James and wife, Mary, of Limon; 10 grandchildren, Tyler and Leigh Anna Andersen, Lindsey and Layne Lohmeier, Kyle, Kelsey and Kaitlyn Burkett, and Auston, Tayler and Riley Andersen.

Cary of Limon; brother, James Cary and wife, Kathy, of Longmont; sister, Viki Thiele and husband, Robert, of Farmington, N.M.; brother, Lowell Cary and wife, Susie, of Alaska; numerous nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends who loved her dearly. Everyone who knew her and loved her are named as honorary pallbearers for her trip to "Heaven." She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and the community!

Anderson, William B.
William B. Anderson – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – March 27, 1916 – Sudden Death of W. B. Anderson – Well-Known Mining Man Attacked by Hemorrhage While Gathering His Effects for Journey East – William B. Anderson, mining man in the Leadville district for twenty-five years and the man who gave the name to the Anderson tunnel project in the Birdseye district, died suddenly at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon at his home, 223 East Ninth street, following two hemorrhages which affected him at noon and shortly before his death. He was 50 years old. The first attack at about noon came without warning while the mining man was happily getting his personal effects in order for a trip today to his old home in Chateaugay, N. Y. For several years he had suffered at times from dropsical ailments, and only recently had sojourned for three weeks at Clark's Wells, Pueblo. He returned home a week ago yesterday, feeling much improved. As a means of further promoting his good health, Mrs. Anderson had frequently urged him to visit his old home in New York, she said last night, but on each occasion he had put off the journey, until she again urged him to make the trip last week on his return from Pueblo. He had finally been prevailed upon to plan for this pleasant journey, and yesterday morning he was busily engaged with his wife in getting needed effects together. He had planned to go to Pueblo today, there spend a short time and then continue his journey to New York. While he worked about the house yesterday morning, with blithe spirits and feeling strong, he was seized by the first hemorrhage. Mrs. Anderson assisted him to bed and called a doctor. Late in the afternoon the heart and dropsical troubles brot on a second hemorrhage, which caused his death within a few minutes. Friends of the widely known mining man were shocked last night on learning the sad announcement. Mr. Anderson all last week, after his return to the city, had been actively engaged with his mining affairs, and only Saturday was downtown, spending part of the day in discussing details of the Anderson tunnel project with C. H. Weaver and H. A. Huttinger, of Toledo, Ohio, who are in the city and who are prominently interested in the Birdseye project. Arrangements for the funeral services, not completed last night, will be announced later. William B. Anderson was born in Chateaugay, N. Y., fifty years ago, the youngest child of a family of which one son and two sisters survive. He spent his boyhood there and remained in New York until his coming to Colorado and the Leadville district twenty-five years ago. On coming to Leadville he was employed by the Williams Lanther (?) company with which he was attached for a number of years. He became interested in mining during this employment, and since then had followed it almost continuously. For an extensive period he mined the Hope, meeting with varying success. Four years ago he conceived the extensive project now under way in the Birdseye district to drive a tunnel for railes (?) into Prospect mountain to open up the rich mineral deposits which are known to be buried there. He devoted untiring energy to this undertaking, and only last year gained the services (?) of Toledo and eastern mining men with whom he was rapidly pushing the project towards completion.

Anderson, William B.
William B. Anderson – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – March 27, 1916 – Sudden Death of W. B. Anderson – Well-Known Mining Man Attacked by Hemorrhage While Gathering His Effects for Journey East – William B. Anderson, mining man in the Leadville district for twenty-five years and the man who gave the name to the Anderson tunnel project in the Birdseye district, died suddenly at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon at his home, 223 East Ninth street, following two hemorrhages which affected him at noon and shortly before his death. He was 50 years old. The first attack at about noon came without warning while the mining man was happily getting his personal effects in order for a trip today to his old home in Chateaugay, N. Y. For several years he had suffered at times from dropsical ailments, and only recently had sojourned for three weeks at Clark's Wells, Pueblo. He returned home a week ago yesterday, feeling much improved. As a means of further promoting his good health, Mrs. Anderson had frequently urged him to visit his old home in New York, she said last night, but on each occasion he had put off the journey, until she again urged him to make the trip last week on his return from Pueblo. He had finally been prevailed upon to plan for this pleasant journey, and yesterday morning he was busily engaged with his wife in getting needed effects together. He had planned to go to Pueblo today, there spend a short time and then continue his journey to New York. While he worked about the house yesterday morning, with blithe spirits and feeling strong, he was seized by the first hemorrhage. Mrs. Anderson assisted him to bed and called a doctor. Late in the afternoon the heart and dropsical troubles brot on a second hemorrhage, which caused his death within a few minutes. Friends of the widely known mining man were shocked last night on learning the sad announcement. Mr. Anderson all last week, after his return to the city, had been actively engaged with his mining affairs, and only Saturday was downtown, spending part of the day in discussing details of the Anderson tunnel project with C. H. Weaver and H. A. Huttinger, of Toledo, Ohio, who are in the city and who are prominently interested in the Birdseye project. Arrangements for the funeral services, not completed last night, will be announced later. William B. Anderson was born in Chateaugay, N. Y., fifty years ago, the youngest child of a family of which one son and two sisters survive. He spent his boyhood there and remained in New York until his coming to Colorado and the Leadville district twenty-five years ago. On coming to Leadville he was employed by the Williams Lanther (?) company with which he was attached for a number of years. He became interested in mining during this employment, and since then had followed it almost continuously. For an extensive period he mined the Hope, meeting with varying success. Four years ago he conceived the extensive project now under way in the Birdseye district to drive a tunnel for railes (?) into Prospect mountain to open up the rich mineral deposits which are known to be buried there. He devoted untiring energy to this undertaking, and only last year gained the services (?) of Toledo and eastern mining men with whom he was rapidly pushing the project towards completion. His sudden death yesterday brot untimely end to his own participation in this extensive work which the public has watched with deep interest, but he has given it a beginning which is certain to advance as the greatest upbuilder of mining in the Birdseye district. Mr. Anderson possessed an energetic nature which kept him constantly engaged in activities of man _____.

Andrews, J. Newton
J. Newton Andrews - Colorado Public Defender – June 16, 1905 - J. Newton Andrews and Fred Arnold. June 16, 1905. Denver. W-W. Hanging/Broken necks. The pair was convicted in separate trials of the murder of sixty-three-year- old Amanda E. Youngblood during an attempted robbery at her home, which also served as a small neighborhood grocery store. Her husband responded to a knock at the door at eleven-thirty p.m. on New Year's Eve, 1903, and found three men who requested to use his telephone. Without suspicion, he invited them inside, where they immediately announced a hold-up. Mr. Youngblood resisted. The commotion awakened Mrs. Youngblood and the Youngblood's son, and they entered the room where the confrontation was taking place. The three men then murdered Mrs. Youngblood and shot the Youngblood's son in the jaw. Although both defendants confessed to involvement in the crimes, claiming they were drunk, each blamed the other for firing the fatal shot. The third intruder, Charles Peters, age twenty-five, received a death sentence for the murders, but his sanity was questioned and he was never executed. Arnold, a laborer, was nineteen-years-old at the time of his execution; Andrews, who worked for the railroads, was two years older and had a prior arrest for burglarizing telephone boxes. Before their executions, the Colorado Supreme Court upheld a new death penalty statute passed by the Colorado legislature in 1901, ending a four year period of abolition.

Arce, Ricky Allen
Ricky Allen Arce - Pueblo Chieftain - November 30, 2006 - Trooper cleared in deadly crash - District Attorney Bill Thiebaut announced on Wednesday that a Colorado State Patrol trooper acted appropriately last month, when he performed a driving maneuver that caused a crash that killed a teenage auto theft suspect. Ricky Allen Arce, 15, of Colorado Springs, died Oct. 13 from injuries sustained when he was ejected from a stolen van. Colorado State Patrol Trooper Larry Brooks ended a high-speed chase between troopers and Arce by executing the tactical vehicle intervention maneuver. The chase spanned more than 40 miles and reached speeds of 100 mph. The maneuver is performed by a trooper driving parallel to a suspect's vehicle, aligning his cruiser's front end with the rear portion of the suspect's vehicle, then making contact with it, causing the suspect's vehicle to rotate. In the case of the 1991 Dodge Ram van that Arce was driving, the passenger-side tires were already flat from an earlier attempt by the state patrol to end the chase by using stop sticks. When Brooks executed the maneuver, the van flipped. Arce was ejected in the crash and died from his injuries. In an eight-page summary of the investigation by the multi-agency 10th Judicial District Critical Incident Team, Thiebaut reported: "Trooper Larry Brooks drove his cruiser during the pursuit of the suspect in as careful and prudent (a) manner as he could considering all other attendant circumstances and exercised reasonable judgment in terminating the pursuit. He complied with statutory law, case law and pursuit policy guidelines. Therefore, there is not a reasonable likelihood or probability that Trooper Brooks committed a chargeable offense that can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, unanimously, to a jury. Accordingly, no charges will be filed against (Brooks)." Soon after midnight on Oct. 13, police identified Arce as a suspect in the reported theft of a van from the Hudson Group Home in Colorado Springs, where Arce was a resident, according to the critical-incident team report. In Colorado Springs, police found the van traveling southbound on Interstate 25 and pursued it at speeds up to 90 mph. Colorado Springs police terminated the chase at Circle Drive as the van approached a construction zone on the interstate. In the construction zone, Colorado State Patrol Trooper J.C. Wolff Jr. spotted the speeding, stolen van and began to chase it. Wolff's cruiser caught up to the van, which was traveling 100 mph. With Wolff in pursuit and his emergency sirens and lights on, Arce passed 12 cars on a 23-mile span of the highway between Colorado Springs and Pueblo, according to the report. In Pueblo County, state patrol troopers placed stop strips in Arce's path, causing the passenger-side tires to begin slowly deflating, and dropping the van's speed to about 60 mph. Within two miles, the tires were completely flat, and three more troopers had joined Wolff's pursuit of Arce. As the troopers boxed in the van and slowed it to 30 mph, Arce reportedly rammed Wolff's cruiser twice, then proceeded to accelerate to 90 mph, despite the passenger-side tires being reduced to rims. Brooks had joined the pursuit by then with emergency lights and sirens activated. He requested a supervisor's permission to employ the tactical vehicle intervention technique, and was informed by a sergeant to use his own discretion in determining whether to nudge the van. For four miles, Brooks jockeyed for position to execute the maneuver before he was finally able to do it 14 miles south of Pueblo. The van rotated counterclockwise, turned broadside and went into the median, where it rolled, ejecting Arce in the process. "It's always tragic when a human life is lost," Thiebaut said. "It's especially troublesome when you have a young man of tender years, like the 15-year-old in this case. Unfortunately, even a young person can cause death or serious injuries to others based on their actions. In this case, there was no other choice for the trooper than to terminate the pursuit in the way it was done and where it was done." In his report, Thiebaut stated that Brooks followed the state patrol's accepted policies for employing the tactical vehicle intervention technique by activating emergency lights and sirens, and that the maneuver was only employed after alternative attempts to end the chase failed. In addition, Thiebaut determined that Brooks was justified in his actions because the incident occurred during the legitimate pursuit of a criminal suspect. Wednesday's announcement was the second issued by Thiebaut concerning deadly incidents involving vehicles driven by law-enforcement personnel since the critical incident investigative protocol took effect at the start of this year. In the first investigation, Thiebaut determined that a misdemeanor charge of careless driving resulting in death would be filed against Deputy Jonathan Post of the Pueblo County Sheriff's Department for the June 16 accident at U.S. 50 and Morris Avenue that killed 74-year-old Willis Green. That case is pending in county court, and Post remains on duty. Thiebaut said the split outcomes of the two cases the critical incident team has reviewed since its inception speak to the neutrality of the process. "I'm confident that the process is very objective and allows for thoughtful, thorough investigation of a situation," he said. Each law enforcement agency in Pueblo County is on the critical incident team, and participates where needed in investigations of serious incidents involving members of law enforcement. The findings are passed on to the district attorney, who determines whether crimes were committed by law-enforcement personnel or anyone else involved.

Arguijo, David R.
David R. Arguijo - Huerfano World - August 4, 2005 - Killed - A Dimmit, TX., man, 34-year-old David R. Arguijo, was killed after dying of an apparent heart attack at the wheel of his semi-truck early last Thursday morning, July 28, 2005, when it crashed through an Interstate 25 guardrail, fell on and landed on top of two moving coal cars on an eastbound, 132 car Burlington-Northern Santa Fe train. Arguijo reportedly died from a heart attack, from the fire inferno that took nearly two-hours to extinguish or from the impact of the semi and the train cars. The Colorado State Patrol closed northbound 1-25, for eight hours and southbound 1-25 and Colorado 10 east and west. David Arguijo, a 34 year-old Texas man, was killed Thursday morning, July 28, 2005 when his 18 wheeler drifted out of the northbound lanes of 1-25 at Exit 52 overpass, sheared away the guardrail, and plunged down thirty one feet to smash into a east-bound Burlington Northern coal train. Two cars from the coal train, which was empty at the time, were caved in and derailed by the impact. The resulting fireball from the impact scorched the underside of the 1-25 overpass, and briefly set fire to the bridge and surrounding grass where diesel fuel had spilled. Arguijo had left Dimmitt Texas at 1 a.m. with a load of groceries to deliver in Divide. Insurance claims adjuster said on Tuesday Arguijo died of a heart attack. Huerfano County fire crews were paged out at 5:52 a.m. to deal with the fire, with a second page going out shortly thereafter for more assistance. As if flaming trucks and smashed trains weren't enough for one morning, the Fire Department received another page out in the middle of this for a structure fire at 808 Albert St. in Walsenburg. Firefighters rolling up on scene saw smoke coming out of a shed. Flames were quickly knocked down and the source of the fire was determined to be a sheet of plywood that had been placed on a stovetop, which had been left on. Although the heat was intense, damage was minimal. Back at the crash site, Walsenburg city crews used backhoes and bulldozers to clear the wreckage and locate Arguijo's body, which was taken to the El Paso County coroners for examination. Burlington Northern uncoupled the damaged rail cars and left them parked in the train yard side tracks.

Armijo, Pedro
Pedro Armijo - Akron Pioneer Press - November 14, 1913 - Four Men Shot Dead - Three Killed From Ambush In Strike Riots - Mine Guards Slain As They Flee In Auto With Miner From La Veta - Aguilar Miner Shot - La Veta, Colo., Nov 9 - The most tragic battle in the history of the strike struggle in the southern fields took place Saturday afternoon at the Gene Loughhead ranch, three miles west of the mountain town of La Veta, when an automobile containing four guards, the driver and one miner, was ambushed by a gang of men and three of them killed and two wounded. The dead - Harry Bryan, 1832 Ogden street, Denver, captain of guards; Walter Whitten, Carlton hotel, Denver, guard; Luke Terry, Colorado Springs, chauffer. The Wounded - R. G. Adams, Arriba, Colo., shot through left arm and right foot; William Gamblin, miner, shot through right lung. The place where the shooting took place is ideal for an ambush. The road winds out of La Veta and runs along and up a hill. At the right of the hill, where the road starts up, is the Loughhead reservoir held in by a dirt embankment. It was from this embankment that the strikers did their firing. The riddled automobile stood Saturday night in the same spot where the stiffening hands of the chauffeur had stopped it. Terry slipped down in his seat still holding the wheel. Fifty yards back Captain Bryan lay face downward with his gun under him. Whitten, twenty yards back of the machine lay on his back. The machine was riddled with bullets. Gamblin is at the Owen ranch. He is not in a dangerous condition. R. G. Adams was taken to the office of Dr. Lamme. General Chase Says Situation Critical - Trinidad - Adjutant General John Chase regards the situation in the strike zones of southern Colorado as most serious following a day of bloodshed and violence. The streets of Trinidad and every section of the strike district are being guarded by militiamen to prevent further outbreaks. One non-union miner shot and killed and one striker wounded at Aguilar; a mine clerk, assaulted, beaten and left for dead by strikers at the McLaughlin mine three miles south of Trinidad; two miners beaten by strikers at Starkville; a camp marshal captured by strikers, disarmed and driven from Segundo; and a skirmish between strikers and military guards at Forbes, is the record of twenty-four hours in the Las Animas county district since General Chase left Denver for his military headquarters here. Five bridges of the Denver & Rio Grande main line between Cucharas and Rouse Junction have been burned. Strikebreaker Is Slain Near Aguilar - Pedro Armijo, 52, a non-union miner from the Ravenwood mine in Huerfano county, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Aguilar by one of a group of six strikers from the Aguilar tent colony who, it is reported, had followed and surrounded him on his way to Lynn station to take a train for Walsenburg. Terror Rules Coal District - With R. G. Adams, the fourth of the men shot in the ambuscade near La Veta Saturday afternoon, dead in the hospital at Pueblo, the feeling of horror in this district over the killing has intensified. That the reign of terror is on again is freely expressed by citizens. The strained feeling that pervaded both La Veta and Aguilar during Saturday and ended in killings was felt at Walsenburg up until a late hour Sunday night. It broke once when strikers caught Neal McDermott, fire-boss from the Maitland mine, before the Star theatre and beat him. Yampa Leader - November 14, 1913 - Strikebreaker is Slain near Aguilar - Pedro Armijo, 52, a non-union miner from the Ravenwood mine in Huerfano county, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Aguilar by one of a group of six strikers from the Aguilar tent colony who, it is reported, had followed and surrounded him on his way to Lynn station to take a train for Walsenburg. Brandon Bell - November 14, 1913 - Strikebreaker is Slain Near Aguilar - Pedro Armijo, 52, a non-union miner from the Ravenwood mine in Huerfano county, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Aguilar by one of a group of six strikers from the Aguilar tent colony who, it is reported, had followed and surrounded him on his way to Lynn station to take a train for Walsenburg.
