One of the certain acts of the ninth general assembly will be to legislate in favor of having the sec ond district ludge appointed for this judicial district. As it is Judge Elwell is overcrowded and it is im possible for him to dispose of all the cases on the docket. J. W. Brentlinger of Pueblo has been appointed deputy state labor commissioner by Seoretary of state, N. O. McClees. Mr. Brentlinger wae a candidate for congressman on the peoples party ticket at the late elec tion. The secretary has also ap pointed a Pueblo man as state measurer of printing, Mr. Otto Thum of the Pueblo Printing Go. Cripple Creek and Fremont will meet with a great deal of opposition from the gulch towns of Barry, Law rence and Arequa in their endeavor to have a new county created from the counties of El Paso, Fremont and Park. At present the gulch townß mentioned arc weak and stand no show with their stronger neigh bors to the north, but they think that two years hence the conditions may be changed when one of them might win tl\o prize. There is no doubt but what the business outlook for the approaching Bpring is gradually improving. In fact there has been a very noticeable change for the better within the last two weeks, and while there may not be a boom with all its attending wild excitement there is certain to be a steady trade in all kinds of business. Real estate is beginning to move which is always a sure sign of activ ity in everyihing in general. Several real estate transfers were made in Bessemer this week and other deals will follow in short order. Almost every house id the city is occupied nnd the building season has begun. The year 1893 is sure to be one of prosperity in Colorado. The city council of Bessemer has met the city council of Pueblo half way in the matter of seeking a basis for the consolidation of the two cities As published in last week’s Indica -1 tor Mayor Hamilton appointed as , the commission for Pueblo, Charles Henkel, George West and T. J. Downen. At a meeting of the council last Monday night Mayor Shockey appointed as a commission to meet that of Pueblo, B. Sweet, i Andrew Glover, and S. N. Salter. It will now be in order for the com missioners to meet and discuss plans for a union of the two cities and then report to their respective coun cils. And thus it is that consolida tion will again be a factor in politics : at the city election next spring. “It has been almost unanimously decided that strikes and boycotts are relics of the past, utterly out of date at the present time, and Colorado’s assemblies will hereafter look to the ballot to right any injustice that muy arise.” The above is n quotation from a written report of the doings of the , Knights of Labor on Monday of this week just before the final adjourn ment of the state assembly. Sensi ble men. And now if the labor ele ment throughout the state will be governed by the wiso resolve of the assembly they will win the respeot | and admiration of every good citizen. The only way to win recognition from capital is through lesislation and the sooner 1 uch a course is be ; gun the better it will be for the ’ workingman. 7 . BESSEMER, COLORADO, SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 1898. I is apprehensive lest the U. ament will enact measures in future excluding Italians Us country. Firstly, the ■pvernment says the great ■Msoney sent back from the is a source of great secondly, that the to this country in every social with the make better p, ”3e jj^^their naturalized, ever rises above a good keg of beer am! generally. of this speaks kn aiß ~V7’ There to the Juan countrywß|)JJMPlTtah. fewer than 4,000 men are already oP the grounds while a regular stampede is going on from the nearest rail road stations, the men all being anxious to be among the first to arrive in the region of wealth. It is reported on what is considered the best authority that hundreds of the miners arc pan ning out from $ 10. to SSO. per day while others are actually picking the cube gold out of the quartz exposed along the sides of the cliffs. Otto Mears, that energetic pathfinder for the railroads is now searching with a corps of surveyors the best route for a road to the fields and tho probaUl ities are that operations will at once be.commenced to extend the D. & R. G. southern from Colorado on to Bluff city in the heart of the raining camp. AH is excitement and the famous gold fever of Cali fornia in 1849 promises to be rival led by this new camp in the pictur esque country of the wild San Juan. THE CITY RAILWAY. Wlrot was Done at the Stockholders Meeting. There was a mettiug of the stock holders of the Pueblo City Kailway Co. at their offices in Pueblo Mon day at which some important mat ters concerning the road were dis cussed aud several new officers elected. It- was thought for a time that there would be a transfer of the property as a result of the meet ing and some still hold to that opinion but if there should be no one outside of the company has any knowledge of It. There was a general all round discussion regarding the policy to - be pursued by the company in the future and it was agreed to run the system for all there is iu it. Better service is to be provided and a gener i al overhauling of all the cars will be made; and the tracks repaired. The stockholders tiiink the road can be made to be a good paying institu tion and they mean to make it so. The officers elected were as follows: James E. Downey succeeds himself as president and his son, Julian B. Downey was re-elected secretary while H. F. Chubbuck succeeds him as general manager. William Mar tin was elected superintendent and John Thompson traillc manager. Consolidation. The people of Bessemer have as yet manifested but little interest in the question of consolidation with Pueblo. Those approached by the Indicator on the subject appear to be indifferent saying that they have not given .the question much con sideration and it seems that most of the discussion is going on down in Pueblo. It would be interesting to know where the Chieftain got its in formation when it stated few morn ings ago that the people uf this city were practically in favor of consol idation and it would be still more interesting to find out how the Pueblo correspondent of the Denver News discovered that the populists of the two cities would work to gether for a union. It is true that commissioners from both cities have been appointed with a view to re port on some plan by which the consolidation can be effected but they have not yet held s meeting. The fact is Bessemer Is rather jealous of her Identity as a city of • the second class and unless given a strong representation In the council i of the united city will be very slow about going Into the union.

The sulphur is being thoroughly takeu out and the ore is in fine condition. A small sized strike took place in blast furnace No. 3 last Bunday morning in which about twenty men walked out and the furnace was temporarily shut down. The strike seems to have been inspired by a couple of agitators who pre vailed on the others to quit work. The furnace keeper was getting $2.50 per day and the helpers $2.15 which they declared was not enough. During the day several changed their minds and went back to work while others were discharged by Supt. C. 8. Kobinson.

John Garavich who was struck over the head bv a negro named Brooks during an altercation over the ownerthip of a shovel last Sun day morning is gradually improving at the C. C. AI. hospital. Doctors Bailey and Corwin found it neces sary to remove several pieces of his skull. Brooks who made good his escape is hiding out somewhere and the probabilities are will never come back. When a man puts in 45 days and 1 hours work in a month be is certainly workiug early and late. That is the record made by I*. J. Allen in December. Pay day was to have been on the 14 but the clerks being UDable to get the pay roll out by that time the pay day has been postponed to the 21inst. Foreman Mike Martin has orders to lay several switches of railroad. A MOCK CITY COUNCIL. The Peoples Party Organization. Wednesday night the peoples party held an intei eating meeting in the city hall and interested themselves in the affairs of the city. A mock city council was chosen as follows: For mayor, W. S.

A winter in the South— the very words conjure up delicious memories for those who have been there. The bright sunny skies, the dry, bracing air and the warm sunshine is in decided contrast to the cold, bleak north. The great state of Texas is celebra ted n 9 one great broad winter resort in itself, but the following places arc, per haps, particulrHy popular: Fort Worth, with its mineral baths, healthful climate aud good hotels; Austin, the beautiful capital city; Ban Antonio, one of the few really historical places in our coun try; Houston, with its blooming roscsj oleanders and groves of oranges and lemons, and Galveston with its delici ous sea breezes. These are but a few of the dclightf.il resorts of this highly favored region. An osenpe from all tho pains and dis comforts of our rigorous weather, trau sported by magic from the region of snow and ice to the fragrauce of this summer-land, is now mndc possible and easy by the Denver, Texas & Ft.
