The following account of the affair by the Democrat leaves nothing to be added: “The many friends of Hon. Patrick A. McBride, were surprised as well as pained yesterday morning to learn of his sudden and untimely death in this city. The deceased, though comparatively a young man, was well known throughout the state. He came to Colorado in 1860, and settled in Las Animas county, where he soon became a popular leader among the democrats. In 1868 he was chosen judge of the probate court of Las Animas county, and served an honorable term of two years, after which he was elected a member of the territorial council, and served in that capacity. Of late years his friends have witnessed his gradual decline in health, caused altogether by excessive drinking, to which he had become addicted. Last week he was taken ill and remained in his room at the American House. He appeared to grow gradually worse but no one thought his case was serious. On Sunday morning one of the members of the Irish-American Progressive Society, of which he was a member, repaired to his room and found that he was dead. Coroner Webb was summoned and after an examination into the facts, and hearing the testimony of medical experts, the jury returned a verdict of death, caused by a too great indulgence in intoxicating drink. The remains were removed to Walley's undertaking establishment, where they were prepared for burial. A brother of the deceased, who resides in Las Animas county, was sent for and will be here this evening.

McClelland, John W.
John W. McClelland - Memorial to Fallen Officers - The presence of the Memorial to Fallen Officers in the lobby of the Colorado Corrections Training Academy, Caρon City, stands as an everlasting symbol of honor to the fourteen men who have given their lives in the line of duty. The Colorado DOC recognizes the ultimate price paid, dedication and loyalty of the following men: Riot - 1929 - October 3, 1929 - The deadly riot of October 3, 1929, at the Colorado State Penitentiary was preceded earlier that summer by a series of riots in two New York prisons and the Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. These riots prompted rumors that an organized effort to disrupt the nation's prison system was underway. The riots left 8 staff dead. Details of the tragedy indicated that it was the "bloodiest chapter in the history of the Colorado State Prison." Not only were lives lost, but also large sections of the prison were destroyed by fire. It is estimated that over 2,000 rounds of ammunition were fired during the melee. Perhaps these words written in the Warden's Report to the Colorado Board of Corrections in 1930 say it best: "I wish at this time to commend them for their bravery, loyalty and the supreme sacrifice they made. Their memories will always be held in the deepest reverence and respect by the officials and remaining co-workers." The following men lost their lives in the line of duty: John W. McClelland - McClelland ran the tailor shop at the prison and had lived in Canon City for 14 years at 621 North Fifth Street.

Mr. McCormick was born in Baltimore in 1823, enlisted in the Seventh Iowa infantry in 1861, and was mustered out at the close of the war as a major. In 1867 he came to Pueblo County and had lived here ever since, occupying the same house in East Pueblo for twenty-two years. He served as alderman, and was at one time acting mayor. He became an Odd Fellow in 1844 and held the highest positions in the Colorado order. A year ago, the fiftieth anniversary of his initiation was celebrated at Denver.

McCormick, Richard
Richard McCormick - Boulder County News - May 19, 1876 - A Thief Dies Game - The Pueblo Chieftain of last week tells the story as follows: About ten or twelve days since, Richard McCormick, better known as “Dirty Dick,” a notorious cattle thief, and a “slick one” generally, was captured at Granada and lodged in jail. The scene of Dick's operations had been in the vicinity of Trinidad, and many of the cattle owners of Las Animas county had suffered from his depredations. As soon as he was captured the authorities of Las Animas county were notified, and Deputy Sheriff Rifenburg, in company with Messrs. Doss, Roberts, and some other parties whose names we could not learn, started for Granada to bring McCormick back. McCormick was placed in jail to await their arrival, and heavily ironed. When the jailer came into the room in which Dick was confined the prisoner attacked and overpowered him, and locking the officer in his room went into the office, presumably for the purpose of obtaining tools to rid himself of his irons, and arms for defense. The jailer, it seems, had a revolver concealed somewhere in the jail, and while Dick was investigating affairs in the office, shot him (Dick), badly wounding him. When the party from Trinidad arrived, the doctor in attendance objected seriously to Dick's removal, stating that it might cause his death. This the officers of the law didn't pay much attention to, and on Friday last McCormick and his captors took passage in the caboose of a freight train on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad, bound for Trinidad by way of Pueblo. The prisoner, supposed to be severely wounded, had a bed made for him in the [illegible] of the car, his guards lying all around him. Late at night, when the train reached La Junta, Mr. Doss, who was sick and unable to sleep, saw Dick rise and start towards the car door. Mr. Doss grabbed him and called to the others to get up and secure the prisoner. The noise of the train prevented his call from being heard, but the prisoner said he did not mean to attempt an escape. As soon as Mr. Doss loosened his grasp, McCormick rushed to the door and jumped from the train, running toward the river at a rapid rate. By this time sleepers were aroused, the train was stopped, and a portion of the party followed in pursuit. They soon overtook the fugitive and commenced firing at him. He begged them to desist, saying that they were shooting him to pieces. The ceased firing, when McCormick rushed to the river and leaped into the swollen stream. He was heavily ironed, though he left his coat and boots in the car. He was carried down by the swift current, his pursuers shooting at him as long as he was in sight. Messrs. Rifenburg and Doss came on to Pueblo on Saturday, leaving two of the party to hunt up McCormick. These latter arrived here on Sunday, having failed to find their man. Deputy Sheriff Rifenburg thinks that McCormick succeeding in getting out the of water on the opposite side, but those who remained behind to search for him think he was carried down by the water and was drowned. Conductor Scott, of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, who arrived in Pueblo yesterday, tells the Chieftain that as he came by a point seven miles east of West Animas Monday afternoon, an inquest was in progress upon McCormick's body. He escaped from his pursuers, crossed the river, and was on his return towards West Las Animas on the railroad when he laid down by the side of the track and died of his wounds.

C. McCune, fireman, and Archie Buchanan, head brakeman.  The wreck was first discovered by the trainmen of the Rio Grande passenger train which passes this place at 12:15.  The two roads at this point run almost parallel with each other.  The wreck was immediately reported to Colorado Springs and the superintendent and dispatcher at Pueblo proceeded to the scene.  The conductor and the brakeman who was unhurt went, one in each direction, to flag approaching trains, and their comrades were left in the ruins that others might be protected.  It was found that the wreck was caused by the engine striking a cow.  The wrecking of the engine, tender and cars was complete and the track was torn up.  The three men were evidently killed instantly, and their bodies were badly crushed.
