Smith also gave up his place to Justice Thomas A. Bradford. M. N. Megrue was duly qualified as county commissioner on Tuesday. Mr. Megrue is a bard headed, practi cal business man, a resident of Besse mer and will make a good county of ficial. This oity now has two county commissioners, W. 11. Hubbard con tinuing to hold down his seat. It is the far east this time that is catching the howling blizzards. New York harbor is actually blocked with great icebergs probably from “Greenland’s icy mountains,” while a terrific snow storm Ims been raging all week along the York and New Jersey shores. It makes one living in this summer clime shiver to think of it. There are many strangers in the city’, some looking about with a view to going into business while others are seeking employment in the steel works. There are but few vacant houses and rooms to be had and those who have the means are look ing to house building as a good field for investment. Bessemer will be one of the livhest places in the state next summer. When Benjamin F. Butler died last Wednesday morning at his home in Washington, D. C. tho United States lost one of its most noted and patriotic citizens and the world per haps its greatest constitutional law yer. Ben Butler as lie was familiar ls called was a man of more than ordinary learning in the fields of law and literature and his great knowl edge combined with his wonderful force of character made him a re markable man everywhere. Bessemer needs a bank and needs it bad. The big pay rolls of the steel works should be bandied here. If the checks could be cashed in Besse mer much of the money which now finds its way out of the city would remain with the business men of Bessemer and thereby assist in building up the city. This is the way in which every producer can be a builder and the only way to make the town go ahead. A bank would be of immense benefit and would do a big business. When will it come? The new board of county com missioners organized on Tuesday with 11. M. Morse as chairman. Ap plications for appointment to the position of county pltyaicinn were made by Dr. A. L. Fugard, Dr. Gray aud Dr. Gale. Dr. Fugard was ap pointed. The applicants for county attorney were Geo. W. Collins of Bessemer, E. C. Glenn, George Saols bury and J. H. Coon of Pueblo. No decision was reached but the appoint ment will not be long delayed. W. I. Wren was elected inspector of weights and measures. B. C. Hall was elected county road overseer. For janitor of the court - boose I. Johnson was elected. The new board disposed of a lot of prelimin ary routine business in a brisk and easy manner that caused onlooker* to think they meant business, , v j BESSEMER, COLORADO, SATURDAY, JANUARY 14, 1893. There is a general demand among the employes at the steel works and the business men of Bessemer for a bill to be introduced in the state leg islature providing for the payment of all labor every two weeks. Such a bill will be introduced aud the in dications are that it will pass both houses by a handsome majority. A week ago all was gold and glory in the famed San Juau coun try but now counter reports are com ing in denouncing. the stories of fabulous riches and denouncing the country as a barren region where the shining ore shines not and where dis appointed miners are turning the air blue. These are nhe latest reports but there may be a change for the better in a few days and it is best to wait a while before forming an opinion. The dead-lock in the state senate was broken early in the week by a union between the populist and dem ocratic senators whereby they elected an satire set of officers and servants. It was a squaring up game with the republican lower house and they swept everything. Senator Barela a democrat had been made president of the senate at the start and now khe combined forces proceeded with the election of the following: Secretry of the senate—W. H. Kennedy of Leadville, Populist. Sergeant-at-arms-—James Cum mings of Denver, Democrat. Assistant sergeant-at-arms—John Williams of Fremont county, Popu list. Chapitun of the Senate—Rev. T. A. Uzzeli. Messenger—L. E. Sipe of Las An imas county, and second messenger, N. Chavez of Las Animas county, both Democrats. Docket clerk—Ollie Moore of Chaffee county, Democrat. Bill clerk—Richard Southgate of Denver, Democrat. Night watchman—Pat Buckley of Leadville, Democrat. Enrolling clerk—A. B. Gray of Rocky Ford, Populist. Printing clerk—Fred B. Johnson of Boulder, Populist. Engrossing clerk— J. M. Craw ford of Saguache county, Populist. Doorkeeper— T. O. Smith of Cos tella county, Populist; assistant door keeper, L. Garcia of Huerfano county Democrat; pages, Harry Newcome, Fred Garcia, William Pique and Albert S. Stryker. STEEL WORKS SPARKS. The rail will starts up again next Monday. The finishing roll whicii broke last Tuesday morning at 3 o’clock will be replaced by that time and all hands will go to work again. It was a serious break down but one of the unavoidables and no one was to blame. After awhile the weak parts in the machinery will all be replaced and then delays will be few. The roll is being turned out here, the men working day and night. W.N. Crocker, an affable gentle man and C. 8. Robinson's former time keeper at Milwaukee, is keep ing time at the blast furnace depart ment. Mr. Crocker likes the city and will move his family here in March. F Tiie big 70 ton scales was tested ; this week and found to be all right. , a number of the boys took acl | vantage of the shut down in the rail mill and converter this week ! and on Thursday, it being the 54th I anniversary of Uncle Tom Wood’s t birthday, surprised that diminutive j old timer at his ranch on the St. Charles. Uncle Tom was for years a steel worker and to say that there was a gay time at his place doesn’t . begin to express it Of course there , was none of the foaming beverage to be had but the boys got along very well without it. 1 E. P. Cush who was expelled from ! the works several months ago by ■ ex-Superintendent I. Grove, but . who again, went to work with a , change in the management, was , again laid off late last week by Superintendent T. W. Robinson. It - is a rule of the present management i that once discharged always dis . charged and it seems that Mr. Cush’s case was not considered U£- til now by Mr. Robinson. A com mittee waited on the superinten -1 dent this week in Mr. Cush’s behalf but without availing anything. Men are wanted by Overseer Coe to handle coke, limestone and ore. He employs all who come along at *1.05 per day. Here is an opportu alty for the “dead brok a” individu al* who ''art accustomed to strike j their Mends for a dollar. Many of the rail mill aud con verter men while waiting for their departments to start up have joined the floating gang under Jim Robin son or the brick crew under Tom Phillips and are doing good service in hurrying along the general re pairs of the mill. Three of the ten boilers being placed for blast furnace No. 2 are raised to their proper elevation and the brick work is progressing slowly but surely. W. R. Rees, Adam Kunt/,, Will Little, Jim Cromar, et al are using their trowels to good effect. The break down in the rail mill occured just as the big 15 thousand tons order for 70’s for the Union Pacific was begun. Only four rails had been made when the finishing roll broke. About SBO,OOO will be the amount of the pay roll next Saturday—the largest ever known in the history of of the mill. This pay roll, Super intendent T. W. Robinson thinks, will be augmented to SIOO,OOO next spring. The addition to the converter of fice is about completed and will be used for a laboratory, the tests from the converter to be made there in stead of sending samples to the main laboratory. In this way much valuable time will be saved. Patrick Knox, ouo of the Joliet boys has been laid m part of the week on account of rheumatism. PUEBLO POINTERS. The Pueblo city council has not yet taken steps toward improving the ap proaches to the Union avenue and C street viaducts; but it should and with out delay. The grades are so steep that in wet weather a horße is terribly punished in climbing up. Better come to Bessemer and get a large quantity of pulverized slag to spread on the grade if they can’t afford anything more ex pensive. The Chioftain is booming what is known as Ophir camp, a new discovered gold region about eight miles weet of Beulah, and Bays it may prove to be another Cripple Creek. It states that assays showing from to 237)4 ounces of gold per ton have been made. 237)4 ounces of gold is equivelant to about 84,750 which beats Cripple Creek, Creede and the San Juan country all hollow, and these samples were procured at a depth of not more than twelve feet. It is a good gold story anyhow and will do to pass around whether there is anything in it or not. The Grand hotel will pass into the management of E. W. Schubert to-mor row. The Grand has been a sort of white elephant for a year but Mr. Schu bert is confident of making it go all right. It is only a matter of conjecture when work will be commenced on the govern ment building. It may be in the spring but it is a question whether the appro priation made for the building will be available by that time. Main street merchants are making a vigorous kick because of the ten minute street car service being taken away. Now the only cars running on that street are those of the lake line which pass every half-hour and the merchants enter a loud protest, claiming a right to the West Abriendo and Dundee ser vice. The board of trade is entertaining a proposition from a pickle and preserve factory of Kansas to remove the plant to Pueblo. The Kansans do not want the earth as a bonus but they will take a good sized patch of it. Manager Lockin Is fast making the Grand opera house a paying institution and is affording the public an opportunity to attend good plays to their hearts content. The Grand has become very popu lar. Hiram L. Holden has succeeded C. A. Hammond as cashier of the Central National Bank. Can He Hold His Job? At the meeting of the Pueblo city council Monday night W. C. Mahar of Bessemer was appontid south side city weigher, vice W. C. Slawson, resigned, and there is con siderable kicking thereat. It is all ' right with Mr. Mahar if he can thus represent his city but they are after I him and he shall have to look sharp j to hold down his job. Apropos to the appointment the Press says: A number of representative citi zens have to-day called the atten tion of the Press to the fact that the council last night elected a citizen of the oity of Bessemer as an official of Pueblo. There is no comlaint personally against the gentleman elected as a city weigher, but every one that has spoken of the matter to the Press thinks that the position should have been given to a Pueblo man. The Press has taken some trouble to look lato the matter and finds that there is an ordinance in ex istence that says emphatically that no one shall hold an official position in the oity of Pueblo who is not a resident of the city. Therefore the city weigher elected last night is invalid and cannot hold goon. If tho oouncil wants to elect citizens of Bessemer to fill offlelal positions in Pueblo it will have to repeal tho , ordinance £ff±*bitlng it before It oan lawfully do so, 1 CONSOLIDATION. The Terms Agreed Upon by the Bessemer Commissioners. What might be called an informal meeting of the consolidation com missioners from thi9 city and Pueblo met last Tuesday in the Pueblo city hall and the following conditions of a union were submit ted by the Bessemer committee: First, That the consolidated cities be divided into six wards bused upon the population of the vote cast at the lust presidential election and these wards to remain unenanged for the period of three years. Second. Sewer mains to be ex tended so as to cover that part of Bessemer lying east of Palmer ave nue and north of Division street so that laterals can run to connect with main sewer. Third. The property owned by the city of Bessemer consists of city hall and six lots on the corner of Mesa aud Evans avenue, city hall suitable for police and fire stations and public hall for citizens; also two lots on the corner of Summit and Spruce streets with hose house; also two lots on the corner of Car teret and Mesa avenue with hose house, all of which free from indebt edness, shall be considered the property of the consolidated cities, ftrovided a police and fire station be ocated at the city hall. Fourth. That the city of Besse mer assume her own indebtedness and when paid to become property in common of the consolidated cities. The propositions were not discuss ed, an adjournment being taken till yesterdayat2p.nl. __ _ „ - THE C. C. & I. HOSPITAL. Something About the Improvements Being Made. Valuable and much needed im provements are being made in and about the C. C. &I. hospital. For a year past these changes have beeu under contemplation and are now being carried out and in a very ex tensive and creditable manner. Al ready a number of the electric lights have beeu putin the building and a few lights have also been placed in the verandas. A comfortable reading aud smoking room has been fitted up where the disabled may spend an hour of profit and pleasure, and where con tributions of newspapers, magazines and books are thankfully received. T.ie interior of the b'uilding is re ceiving a fresh coat of paint and the same attention will be given the outside. The grounds will be carefully looked after, it being the purpose of those having them in charge to raise the entire lawn several inches which will lend new life and vigor to the grass and shrubbery, the flower beds will be laid out anew aud the trees trimmed. A menag erie will be established for the en joyment of the patients. This in teresting feature of the improve ments has a good start inasmuch as there is already a collection of pigeons of several varieties, rabbits of different species, magpies and a lone grouud hog. This disconsolate Individual is quite a pet aud re ceives much attention. With these additions the old hospital and the premises will be shorn of much of their gloomy aspect and the maimed or sick steel worker will find com fort in the cheerful and newly fur nished rooms while lie listens to the glad songs of his dumb com panions outside. A Winter in the South. 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 as one great broad winter resort in itself, but the following places are, per haps, particulrHy popular: Fort Worth, with its mineral baths, healthful climate and good hotels; Austin, the beautiful capital city; San Antonio, one of the few really historical places in our coun try; Houston, with its blooming roses" oleanders and groves of oranges and lemons, and Galveston with its delici ous sea breezes. These are but a few of the delightful resorts of this highly favored region. f An escape from all the pains and dis- I comforts of our rigorous weather, trau j sported by magic from the region of j snow and ice to the fragrance of this summer-land, is now made possible and easy by the Denver, Texas & Ft. Worth branch of the Union Pacific system, which runs through Pullman Palace sleepers between Denver, Fort Worth, Dollas, Shreveport and New Orleans, and oilers exceedingly low excursion rates to all Southern cities from Denver, Pueblo, Colorado Springs and Trinidad.
