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

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

Downen. At a meeting of the
council last Monday night Mayor
Shockey appointed as a commission
to meet that of Pueblo, B. Sweet,

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.

fewer than 4,000 men are already oP

is going on from the nearest rail road
stations, the men all being anxious
to be among the first to arrive in the

that hundreds of the miners arc pan

while others are actually picking the

THE CITY RAILWAY.
Wlrot was Done at the Stockholders
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.
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.

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
