Mr. W. S. Stevens Killed
CRUSHED BY A CAR
W. S. Stevens Dies of Injuries Received at Eclipse.
DIED IN THREE HOURS
W.S. STEVENS, AN EMPLOYE OF THE ECONOMIC GOLD EXTRACTION COMPANY AT ECLIPSE CRUSHED UNDER A CAR.

W.S. Stevens, an employee of the Economic Gold Extraction company's mill in Eclipse gulch, was crushed so terribly under the wheels of a heavily-loaded flat car yesterday morning at 10 o'clock that he died from his injuries three hours afterward.

Stevens and a fellow workman were unloading a heavy roaster for the mill from the flat car, when the brakes gave way. Both men jumped from the car, but Stevens' right foot caught in some rope and he was dragged in front of the moving car.

The front wheels passed over his left foot, crushing it to a pulp, and then over his body in the region of the stomach, breaking his back. He was removed to his home in Eclipse gulch.

Stevens leaves a wife and children, and his death will be deeply felt by his many friends.

Economil Mill Helps Increase Mill-Grade Production
During the month of March, the Economic mill were an important factor for the district's increase in mill-grade production. The increase in the mill-grade production is very gratifying. It is due to the increased capacity of the reduction plants treating Cripple Creek ores. Satisfactory reports for the Economic mill are on hand, which it is officially stated is a complete success. Its production would be much higher if it were possible to get a larger supply of water.

FIRE AT ECONOMIC MILL.
graphic for visual presentation of text At 9:30 Monday morning fire was discovered in the east wing of the Economic Gold Extraction company's big plant on the west slope of Squaw mountain, in Eclipse gulch. Excellent work by the mill's fire department saved the plant from total destruction.

graphic for visual presentation of text The origin of the fire is not definitely known, but it is supposed to have started from the flues running from the furnace to and under the drying tables. The blaze had gained considerable headway before it was discovered, as the mill is constructed principally of wood.

graphic for visual presentation of text Carpenters were put to work at 1 o'clock repairing the damage and it is thought that inside of two weeks all these repairs will have been made.
