Newspapers aud politicians have
been devoting considerable attention
to the formation of President elect
Cleveland’s cabinet and have about
decided thai the choice will be as
follows: For secretary of state,
Thomas F. 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.

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
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

What the Colorado House ol Repre
sentatives Think of it as Re
ported by the Deuver
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
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
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
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.

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
••Well lass,” roturned tho latter,
••if that'll content thee, it’ll soon bo
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.
