Entered at the Poetofllce at Pueblo, Colo., ns second class mutter. Price of Subscription. One Year $1 00 Blx Months 60 Thank*, Pueblo fire department for valuable service rendered' at the steel works blaze. Your work was nobly done. The Drake bill takes from you the right of suffrage. It drags you into Pueblo sgainst your will. Sign the remonstrance. Work against the Drake bill. Make it a point of duty to sign tbo remonstrance being circulated and thereby add your influence to the loud protest being made. Manager Kebler of the C. F. & I. Co. is opposed to consolidation and speaks his mind in no uncertain man ner. lie thinks taxation the great barrier between Bessemer and an nexation. The “hum of industry” in this city is growing louder and louder and the happy echo of its mighty roar will be thrown back from the everlasting hills before—well, before Bessemer ■names Pueblo. The Indicator is under obliga tions to Representative A. W. Len uard and Sonator J. Drake for copies of House and Senate bills. Es pecial thanks are tendered to Mr. Drake for his candor in sending his now satnous consolidation bill. The citizens in the vicinity of Summit avenue and Spruce street are favored by the city council. A small park will be located there and citizens are apt to look upon the action of the council as class legisla tion. The park is to be the public pound. The total tax in Bessemer is forty one and a quarter mills; in south Pueblo it is forty-seven and aqunr ter mills, ami in nortii Pueblo fifty and one-half mills. Would any benefit you might receive from a union with Pueblo offset the differ ence in taxation? Think this over seriously. Mighty sudden work that was when the Bessemer city council read and adopted the commissioners re port, discharged the commissioners, enacted the report into an ordinance, read the ordinance for the first and second time, declared it passed by a unanimous vote and railroaded the whole thing through in less than twenty minutes. There were no Hies in the immediate vinity of the .council that time. There are man)’ new and influen tial proselytes to the cause of non consolidation with Pueblo at this time. They are convinced that Bes semer would be swallowed up in the greed of the stronger neighboring city, and believing that the possibili ties of Bessemer becoming a great city arc about to bs realized, they have taken a loyal stand aud will ad vocate a local application of the na tional Monroe doctrine and avoid all ‘entangling foreign alliances.” It is believed by many that a committee from north Pueblo is now in Denver working against the Drake bill. In this they arc allies of Bes semer but tbs spirit in which the aid is being given is not a friendly one. North Pueblo does not want con solidation and would keep Bessemer out even though the latter begged for admission. The Indicator has always held to this assertion and its truth is being demonstrated more and more as circumstances arise which compel the manipulators of politics north of the river U> show their band. In this issue of the Indicator is published a full text of the Drake bill which ie causing such a stir among the people of this city. The statement so boldly set forth that Bessemer has a population of 10,000 and that the people have for several years been making efforts to unite with Pueblo are utterly false. Mo doubt the crowd which is baokiog Mr. Drake intended the 10,000 pofte* latiori falsehood as a bit of flattest calculated to soothe the irritated tempera of the people, but the has beta misapplied. Mr. W teU atfcopper tot It avmileth teftpj BESSEMER, COLORADO, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1893. Wick’s bill recently Introduced in to the lower house and relating to the annexation of contiguous towns or cities, is a just measure inasmuch as it forestalls any board of trustees or city council from taking a action in the premises unless asked to do so by petition sigued by not fewer than 200 tax-paving electors. In our own muddle it is safe to say that not a dozen men iu the city even knew that the council was to take action on the question, but that body fol lowing out its own desire had a board of commissioners appointed without consulting the wish of the people much less wailing to be asked to take steps in the direction of con solidation. The one-man power in politics is fading fast away in the independent Centennial state. Home rule for Ireland, thanks to Premier Gladstone, at last seems to be one of the probabilities of Eng lish mis-government. But with the promise of an Irish parliament comes a howl from that turbulent North-of- Irelund element known as Orange men who declare that with the dawn ing of home rule they will inaugurate a bloody rebellion and resist the new branch of government to the last. These Orangemen are filled with moro prejudice and are pos sessed with a greater amount of bigotry than any class of people on God’s earth, and hold about the same relation to Ireland that the detested Tories did to this country in the War of Independence. This hybrid ele ment is a mixture of English, Scotch and a little Irish—very little—and always made an insaue boast of their loyalty to England. STEEL WORKS SPARKS. A Big Fire. There was an usually large quantity of sparks at the steel works Wednesday afternoon. A fire broke eut in the wood yard in the eustorn portion of the premises aud before it could be gotten under control had caused a damuge of about SSOO. more than fifty cur loads of cord wood being badly singed, some totally burnod. With the first alarm of the steel works whistle Hose Co. No. 1 responded and the fire spreading rapidly No. 2 wus called. However the pressure was so wretched that the water could not be squirted over a wood pile and connection had to be made with the pump In the converter. AH this took time, and the tiro backing rapidly toward the ice house and the oil shed things looked alnrming and Chief Sanborn of the Pueblo tiro department was telephoned for assistance. He promptly responded by sending the steamer and the Carlile Hose Co. whico came up flying and in a remarkably short time got to work and the flames were soon under control, though not until enough water had been poured an to float some of the wood away. The Pueblo fire department is im mense, and flames, smoke and water have no terrors for the fire boys whose coolness and activity won the admiration of the thousand people from Bessemer and Pueblo who were onlookrs. The Indicator speaks the mind of the steel works and ths city of Bessemer when it says to the Pueblo fire dejiartment, 1 hanks, gentlemen, your work was nobly done and you will be kindly remem bered. The Bessemer hose companies were everywhere and did excellent service when the converter pump begun to get iu its work. Besides, the boys pitched in and relieved the Pueblo nezzlemen, scrambling over the huge piles ef wood and subduing the fire as they proceeded. The boys were justly exasperated over the wretched service from the hydrants they not being able in the beginning to get water enough to drown a rat in a tub. It was a big fire, the wood burning like shavings hnd the flames sheoting fifty feet high. The great danger of a big conflagration has determined the steel works company to provide for a good fire department at the works which is a wise resolve Of Course. As was expected the Pueblo city council checked all progress in the matter of consolidation Monday evening. The session was short and sharp and the report of the commis sioners was shelved, there to become dust covered and moth eaten. The three commissioners from Bessemer with Geo. West from Bouth Pueblo had prepared aoreport which was submitted to the eouncil hut object ed to by Alderman Barndollar on the ground that Puebla wanted a report from the Pueblo commission ers and not from Bessemer men. This was the fine point, Commis sioners Downer and Kilbourn net showing up at all. Mayor Ham ilton upheld Barndollar's motion gad ruled the report out of order. And yet there are still seven or eight men In Bessemer who think that North Pueblo covets a union! Let the stone wall tumble. A 87.000 Hotel. D. W.

How three members showed their prejudic against the peoples party—The plans of the viaduct will not be changed—The pound to be moved into the city—The Swartz liquor case and the consolidation question—An ordinance jerked through with indecent haste. The peoples party made another and this time a successful attempt to get the use of the city hall one night in each week for political purposes. When the petition signed by a committee composed of J. E. Murphy, C. M. Pollard and E. I*. Cush was read, J. E. Jones promptly moved to table the request. J. B. Jones moved that it be granted unci a vote being tuken on J. B’s. motion it stood thusly: For granting the hall, Jones, J. 8., Kirk, Keltner, Brennan and West. Against grant ing the hall, Jones, J. E., Panne baker and Hart. A number of prominent third party men were present and made a mental vote of the action. The public works committee re ported that it had decided to make no change in the plans of the viaduct as formerly agreed upon, which virtually excludes the pos sibility of the steel works from furnishing the iron, aud the report was adopted. Engineer Bland again dunned the council for S2OO. due him under promise of Mayor Bliocky and Al dermen Punnebaker and Hart, but Pannebaker and Hart, but Panne baker said that Bland had not car ried out his agreement and there fore claim was not ordered paid. The committee on streets and bridges recommended the placing of bridges on Pine and Rice streets, and that the bridge on Northern avenue be made the full width of the avenue, file clerk was instruct ed to so notify the Bessemer bridge Co. Alderman Keltner recoinineded that the pound to be removed to the corner of Summit avenue and Bpruce street. A vote was taken which resulted in a tie and decided by the mayor voting iu accordance with the recommendation. Druggist W. P. Swartz asked for the remittance of a fine of $58.75 im posed upon him by the police mag istrate as he had sold liquor only for medicinal purposes. The matter was referred to Attorney Low and the police committee for investiga tion. The report of the commissioners on consolidation was read, adopted, and the commissioners discharged. The rules of the council were sus pended and an ordinance embody ing the sense of the report reud twice in quick succession und carried by a unanimous vote of the council; so every alderman is in favor of con solidation. The council made re markably quick time, receiving a report, enacting it into an ordinance which had been previously prepared In anticipation of whut was coming, reading the ordinance the first time, placing it on its final passage aud declaring it passed all in less time than it takes to allow the salaries of the city officials which is certainly rushing things. The Obnoxious Drake Bill. Following is a aoemplete copy of the obnoxious bill relating to the consolida tion of Bessemer and Pueblo and against which a remonstrance is being sa ex tensively circulated this week. Several of the statements as set forth are so false and the purpose of the bill so out rageous that almost everybody who has an opportunity to do so signs the re monstrance without hesitation. The bill must not be allowed to pass the legislature. A BILL FOR /tq act to Coqsolidate tfje City of Pueblo and tije city of Bessemer into oqe Munic ipality, under ti]6 name of Pueblo ; aqd pro viding fer the payment of indebtedness, aqd disposing of tije real estate of the respec tive cities.

The gentleman is a humorist. Dur ing the campaign he perpetrated a huge joke on an unsuspecting peo ple by blooming into a punster, also. He had the body of a drake sur mounted by his noble head stamped on his cards which caused a laugh to ripple down the Arkansas river, but his friends said he would stop at that; but he didu’t. fie has become a humorist and would be funny, in deed, if ho would not torture tlie truth quite so much. There is only one faint speck of truth in his “whereas” articles nnd that is where he makes the geographical assertion that the cities of Pueblo and Besse mer are contiguous. The residents of the said cities will bear testimony to this fact; and, “whereas” Mr. Drake has not disrobed bis consoli dation idol of the Inst vestnge of truth those who dub him the modern Annanias do him an injustice. He is only a western politician. “Are We In It?" “In what?" “In our new store. ’’ “No, but we expect to be next week, and then you can look for bargains. “This week we offer you 32 boxes matches for .25 12 doz. agate buttous .05 Dress shields per pair .10 Dress stays per set .10 Our 25c grade of ladies hose can not be beaten.
