The snowslide which blocked the C.& S. track in the Ten Mile canon last Friday afternoon was shoveled through Sunday afternoon, and Friday's train No. 70, after visiting Breckenridge and Dillon again, finished it's trip to Leadville.
Much dissatisfaction was caused by the fact that, although Boreas Pass was open, this train was held at Dickey all day Saturday, and that day's train No. 70 from Denver was ordered to return to that city from Como.
The Dickey train could have easily formed No. 71 from Dickey that day, and No. 70 come through to Dickey. This was shiftless management of the C.& S. in not giving us a train over Boreas on Saturday, when there was nothing to prevent the service except uncertain proclivities.

The train however, did not depart for Leadville until Sunday.
