Twenty coffins have been ordered by the company from a local undertaking establishment. Two of the dead are Frank Hobat, miner, and R. J. Lumbey, fire boss. The names of the other men killed have not been learned, as the shift boss, who had charge of the men who went into the mine last night, is missing. All the men except Lumley were foreigners, most of them being Italians. The explosion stopped the air fan, which was not repaired until late today, and there is little chance that any of the men in the mine at the time of the explosion are still alive. District Superintendent Robert O'Neil is personally directing the work of rescue. Volunteers from adjacent mines are assisting. Rescuers have been divided into two hour shifts and work will be kept up continuously until the entire mine is explored. During the entire day excitement ran high and relatives of the entombed miners stood waiting at the entrance to the mine for a sight of any of the victims that might be brought to the surface. The damage to the mine cannot be learned tonight. An attempt is being made to force air into the mine in the hope that some of the entombed men may be alive, and thus prevent their suffocating. Late advices are that the mine is badly wrecked. The rescue party has penetrated three hundred feet and recovered four bodies, the names not being given. Reno Evening Gazette, Reno, NV- Jan 24, 1907 - Trinidad, Colo., January 24, 1907 - Heroically at work the rescuing party has so far succeeded in recovering but four bodies from the Primero Mine where the explosion occurred yesterday morning.

Casley of this city was shot through the head and instantly killed in his drug store some time between 12 and 1 o'clock this morning. Casley was unmarried and lived in rear of his store. He was at a New Year's ball last night and started for home just after the first of the New Year. This morning William Tipple, a clerk, entered the store to begin his duties. Just behind the prescription counter he tumbled over the dead body of his employer. Investigation showed the back door open, the cash register rifled and every pocket in the murdered man's clothes were turned inside out. The robber evidently forced open the rear door and was as work when Casley returned home. Evidently the shot was fired from a distance of about 10 feet, as a revolver was found back of the counter about that distance from where Casley lay, and one chamber of the weapon had been emptied. The exact amount secured by the robber is not known. Casley was about 40 years of age and had lived in Pueblo over two years. He came here from Denver, where his father resides.
