Bayard or William C. Whitney; for secretary of the treas ury, Senator Carlisle; for secretary of war, Daniel S. Lamont; for post master general, William E. Harrity. Mr. Cleveland is, of course, keeping his own coancil and no one knows positively what any of the appoint ments will be. P. A. Collins and Don M. Dickenson are among the likelihoods, either of whom would creditably fill any position in the cabinet and be more acceptable to the people at large than Mr. Bayard, now the most prominent candidate for secretary of state. Mr. Bayard is a very ordinary lawyer, prejudiced and cranky, and a man whose scope of mind is altogether too narrow to fill so important a position. Much was expected of Mr. Bayard when he was given the same place in the Cleveland cabinet eight years ago but he disappointed the expectations of the people. The annexation of the group of twelve Ilawaiiau islands to this country is the principal topic of discussion in Washington just now. It seems to be a question whether the plea for anuexatiou from those Pacific isles comes from the natives at large or from a particular few urged on by the Americans who live there and who urge the annexation for the furtherance of their political ends. There exists an agreement of neutrality regarding those Hawaii islands among the United States, England and France, aud should the United States adopt th group as a col ony complexities might areise which would be at least unpleasant. The islands are 2,100 miles south-west of San Francisco and would be a very light tail to the kite of this country. However, the Hawaii islands are rich and if the people desire to come un der the government of this country it would look like an unwarranted in terference on the part of England or France to oppose the movement. Nothing will probably he done by the corfgress of the United States before the advent of the new ad ministration. STEEL WORKS SPARKS. General Manager Kebler and wife accompanied by some friends spent a couple of hours at the steel works Monday night watching the sparks fly. Mr. Kebler spent the following forenoon in inspecting the works and took his leave feeling that every thing was running satisfactorily. More men are wanted at the blast furnaces. Pueblo should drive in a lot of those idle fellows who hang along the shady ends of the saloons on Union avenue. The breaking of the tQpn crane caused a delay of nearly two days in tlie converter this week. Gradually the weak parts of the machinery Is giving out but is being strengthened whenever a break occurs. A cut has been made among a few outside workmen in the blast furnace department. Those who were getting $1.98 have been cut to $1.75, and the $1.75 men now work twelve hours per day ftstead of ten. Orders for about3o,ooo tons of steel rails are now on the books which will keep the works running for nearly three months' and to fill the orders as quickly as possible the number of men will be increased. In the meantime new orders are be ing looked after and it is reasonable to suppose that plenty of work can be contracted forte keep the mills running day and night for an in definite length of time. With fair treatment by the railreads Eastern competition can be successfully met. The committee which went East to investigate the schedule of prices paid tn the various departments of the steel works will probably make a report next Monday. The city council said last fall te the street car oompany: You must keep conductors on the cars clear through to the steel works end ef the Bessemer line; we menn bis. See? And they passed a huge ord inance to cinch the matter and after wards instructed the marshal to see that the mandate was carried out The Indicator remarked at the time thathrstly, the conductors would pay no attention te the ord inances, and secondly that the coun cil would not and more than likely could not enforce the ordinance, *nd so it came to pass; tbo oar oompany did as it ploasod and wronged no one either. About the first thing the new oounoll should do whsn it comes into power next April will be to purge the rocorde of some worthless ordlnanses. Boys ssa tasks money. OUR YOUTH, only 9fi seats a year.

What the Colorado House ol Repre sentatives Think of it as Re ported by the Deuver News. The house went into committee of the whole with Hunter in the chair, on house bill No. 09, providing that wages must be paid in cash or cash olieck at least once in two weeks, and payment must be made up to a time not over six days before the time of payment. Wooton spoke for the passage of the bill and said injustice was dono laborers in ceal mines. He showed scrip issued by the Colorudo Supply company which were orders on the company store for so much in goods. The company had men around to pick up the scrip at 10 per cent discount. It was an outrage that men should have to mine 2,400 pounds of coal for a ton at 50 cents and then sell scrip at*i discount of 10 pei cent. Last session a similar bill wus killed in the senate and years ugo one got ns far as the governor- -Routt, he thought— and was vetoed. The state of affairs was a s]>ecial and gross injustice to the 000 l miners. It had also been proven thut if th* miners were paid in money instead of store orders they could get cheaper goods at outside stores. Ammons moved that the payments be at least monthly instead of every two weeks. Herr of La Plata said he was in the coal mining business, and, while he favoren the abolition of scrip and the stopping of the discounting of the men's pay, he favored monthly pnyments, be cause most coal miners after pay day ar* not much use for three or four days, and two pay days a month msant great loss of time. He thought a man leaving or discharged should be paid at once. McKnight of Pueblo said that under the rule of monthly payments some store keeper at timee got frightened und tied up the whole of a man’s wages for a month with a garnishee. Two weeks’ payment would get things down to a cash basis and put a stop to thiß hard ship. Crow of Fremont pointed out that many firms did not pay till the middle of tbo month, so that men worked with out pay for forty-five days. The mer chants on a cash basis could sell 25 per cent cheaper. When men bad earned money it was just they Bbould have it. Humphrey of El Paso said the law would be a great detriment to other classes of employers than coal mine owners. He instanced farmers, railroads etc. The railroads couldn’t pay on the Gth of the month. Jenks of Eagle said that to harmonize labor and employers h* would favor the bill with the amendment as the most acceptable to all, except that he would move that th* time allowed b* ten days inf toad of six. Carney of Ouray supported the bill as originally offered. He held that labor ers Bheuld be paid promptly, and that two weeks was long enough. Men with money in their pockets could lend it out if they wished, and come te have frugal and industrial habits and not to lose time after each pay. Lennard of Pueblo spoke of the Bes semer works where 1,200 men are paid on the 15th of each month for the work of the previous month. Franklin Mc- Neagh of Chicago and two or three Pueblo men have organized the Colo rado Trading company, which sells goods to the men and pays 5 per cent to the steel company on all moaey it collects. A man having eoaned $75. gets say u receipted bill for S4O. and $35. in caah. It was absurd to suppose that the 5 per cent came from anywhere but the pocket of the laborer. From actual experience the cost of groceries at th* , supply company was 20 percent higher than elsewhere, and a man with money ' could not obtain goods anywhere else. He opprsed the amendment to a month. Moore of Las Animas spoke for two weeks payments. Sweeney would like to see payments that way also, and favored the bill, but feared it was not constitutional. It provided for punish ment for non-payment, which he feared was contrary to section 285, forbidding punishment for debt. xr. Humphrey's suiibtitute. Humphrey of El Paso had a substi tute, to the effect that railways be ex cepted from the law. Bromley sarcastically suggested that farmers be excepted, and Lowell thought ranchers and stockmen should be count ed out. Carnahan delivered an essay en the impossibility of a court collecting fines, for lack of jurisdiction, and argued that imprisonment for non-payment ot a fin* would be imprisonment for debt. Lennard suggested that the constitu tional lawyer* read “Bleak House," and learn the difference between imprison ment far debt and imprisonment for n fin*. Section 285 had nothing to do with thi* matter, As for railways with headquarters in Chicago not being able to get their money here within six days, he thought they could very well eetab lish brenchee of the paymaster’s depart ment here. Ammons opposed th* two weeks pro vision and said it would strikd a blow at the farmers worse than all the good it would do to others. He favored pro hibition ef payment in store order*. On behalf of the farming, lumber aed rail way interest of th* state he opposed the two weeks clause. Crow said if the money was put into circulation under two weeoks cash pay ments the farmer ia his turn oould get money far his products and pay hit hands cash. Benton suggested that an amendment allowing private contracts fare greaser length ef time than two weeks would meet th* difficulty. Baldwin of El Paso and several others spoke. Bonynf* ippyed that the oom mittee rise and report progress end ask leave to eit again. A motion that when the hones adjourn till 7:30 last evening was lest3B tola,and sdjouraasot was ySm fall SOttfalM* this morning. THIS MEANS YOU.

Turned Into a Cupboard A'tor F.-l;lit_ min* v Hcol ling Wife. At a collier’s cottage in Staffordshire a coffin is used as a cupboard in which bread and cheese and other nocossarios of life are kept, according to the Lon don Times. The coffin, it soems. was ordered eighteen years ago by tho master of the cottage and has boon in use over since. He and his wife used to have a good many words, and one any she exclaimed to her husband: ••I’ll nev er be content till I soo theo in thy cof fin.” ••Well lass,” roturned tho latter, ••if that'll content thee, it’ll soon bo dona” Next day he gayo directions for his coffin to be made, and in a few days, when it came homo, he got into it and said: ••Now, lass, art thou content?” She began to cry at this, and want ed the horrid thing taken away; but. this her husband would not allow. In tho end she became accustomed to its presence, and, bo that it might bo turned into some account shelves were put Into it, tho cover hinged on, and It was thus turned into a useful and original 6ort of a cupboard. And it is satisfactory to know that tho collier and his wife havo nover quarreled since this momento inori lias been in their homo. Sharks as Game Fish. As game fishes tho sharks do not. 1 think, stand high; tho most common of them, the dusky shark, when hooked, circles round on the surface and usually bites off .the lines aud •es capes. If so hooked that the lino can not be cut the struggle is furious but short the shark giving up in much less time than a game fish of hnlf his size, such as tho channel bnss, salt wator trout or snapper would do. I once hooked a shark about five foot long, which fought longer than usual, and when brought to gaff he was found to Be hooked in a side fin. so that he retained his full powers. So also with the hammer-head. Tho shovel-nosed shark I have found to be the most ac tive of them. The nurse shark lies on the bottom, and its bite is not felt or its presence kuown to the angler till he raises his rod. then tho fish comes up like a log without resistance. —Forest and Stream.
