Be fearlessly independent in cast ing your vote at the approaching election and you will he doing the honest thing by your town «). 11. Vookhees, a prominent third party leader of Pueblo has been ap pointed by Governor Waite as dis trict judge No. 2 for this judicial district Pueblo is having a heavy three cornered political fight and even the man who is usually so positive about the result is keeping on the shady side of discretion. The famous Northern avenue viaduct that was never built is a spectral monument to the worthless ness of the city council. Will you rote to continue men in office who for a year have checked the progress of an enterprise demanded by the people? Tbe charity of silence is the best support the Indicator can give to some of the candidates for office; recommendations are given only to such men as in its opiniou are capable and honest enough to make good officials. There are good men on all the tickets and the best should be elected. <s S N^ The city council allowed the Bul lens $250 interest on bonds which had never been out of Treasurer Cush’s hands and on which those wily bridge builders had not paid one cent! How is that for recom mendation for Messrs. West and Hart who are candidates for re-elec tion to the council? Consolidation is doomed and the career of the present city council is doomed, nnd it is with extreme satisfaction that the In dicator lay’s claim to being the main factor in the dooming. There is also satisfaction in kuowing that its efforts in behalf of the welfare of the city are appreciated. The Drake coercion-consolidation bill is one of the “whereas" acts that will never receive a respectable hear ing in the legislature, and the chances are that it will never reach the dignity of being called up at all. The fame of some poets rests on one poem, while the infamy of Senator Drake is stumped on that one bill. Regarding the republican ticket it must be said that from first to last the men nominated are respected and honorable citizens. The In dicator has no halter about its neck and speaks from its customary standpoint of independence, rec ognizing meric and attacking un fitness in any of the candidates. The republican ticket is a good selection. The first ward is a solid railroad ward the candidates on nil the tickets being railroad men. C. F. Colvin republican candidate for mayor; Sol Fisher, republican candi date for alderman; Frank Maxheimer people’s party candidate for aider man, and 11. Hart democratic candi date for alderman are all in the em ploy of the railroad. The Wicks railroad bill was to be made a special order of business in the lower house yesterday, it is now almost an assured thing that the bill will be squelched and there will be no railroad legislation this session. It is also doubtful if the employes liability act will pass muster. How ever the Kindergarten bill passed and the conntry is safe. That yawning, yearning gap across the railroad tracks which long 'ere this should have been spanned by a viaduct which would be a safeguard to life and limb, downed W. L Shockey in the demo cratic convention and in a few short weeks only vauge recollections of the mayoralty of Bessemer will haunt him in his dreams. Mr. Shockey lost his political life in tbs ruins of tbs bridge that was never BESSEMER, COLORADO, SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 1893. J. T. West from the 4th and Har ry Hart from the Ist are members of the most extravagant council Bes semer ever hud. They are both up for office again and the voters in their respective wards have a splen did opporunity to show their dis approval of the reckless expenditure of the city’s funds; remember the $250 interest gift to the Bullens; remember the SSOO fee to Engineer J. C. Blund for viaduct plans and express your disapproval at the polls. The Pueblo city council was guilty of a most flagrant abuse of the power vested iu it when ic re fused at its meeting this week to recognize the people’s party in the selection of election judges. Two republicans and one democrat were appointed from each ward but the hated third party men were spurned. The Bessemer city council did the genteel act *5 well us doing its duty by appointing a democrat, a republi can and u populist in each ward. From an independent standpoint the Indicator condemns such nar row and selfish action on the part of an)' body of men; but the more such acts the more independents. What a brilliant piece of financier ing and economy that was to allow the Bullens interest to the amount of $250 on those SIO,OOO viaduct bonds on which not a single cent had ever been advanced. The bonds drew in terest at five per cent from Septem ber Ist 1802 to March Ist 1893, being six mouths, and all this time the precious documents were care fully laid away iu the custody of the Central National bank of Pueblo, while the council and the Bullen Bridge Co were dickering and bicker ing over the contract. The city treasurary was simply filched of $250. Every member of that coun cil must be relegated to the shades of oblivion ns soon as his term ex pires. The welfare of the city de mands it. Without exaggeration and as a timely hint to the voter who has not been following the actions of the council very closely it must be said that it certainly requirs an unlimited amount of gall in any member of t ie council to aspire to a re-election. If their official term of office had been marked by even ordinary use fulness they should perhaps have preference over new and untried aspirants, but when the incumbency is au empty void it takes astonishing nerve to lay claim to the snffirage of the people. Vivid remembrances of the viaduct that was never built, the gift of $250 bondj interest to the Bullen Bridge Co. and the SIOO donation to an expert accountant who found Ex-treasurer Roach's hooks to be absolutely correct are sufficient to crush the political ambitions of any of the present council. President Cleveland evolved another idea peculiar to himself when he decided to not appoint editors to federal positions, giving as his reason that the public might think he had subsidized the press. Mr. Cleveland seems to be fearful of criticism in this instance when his usual manner is to make his ap pointments regardless of public opinion, the choosing of Judge Gresham as secretary of state being notable. The President has even instructed Postmaster General Bis sell to beware of appointing editors, particularly editors of country news papers, to ‘ the postmastership. This is discrimination against the very profession to which he is most indebted, but in reaching out after popularity he incurs the displeasure of a class of men who can do him more injury than any other dozen professions. Crushed to Death. Another of those horrible accidents whereby a man lost his life occured at the steel works Wednesday. George Collins, a young switchman, while hang ing on to the side of a car was knocked from his position by an extending plat form and thrown beneath the engine, the wheel passing over his left leg and otherwise mutillating him. The doctor and the ambulance were nt once sum moned and the unfortunate man re moved to the hospital where he died the same night. It was a horrible fate nnd made the cold shivers run through the men about the worke. This is the second victim of the switch yard with in a week, John Sipple twing caught in the same way last week but is still lingering at the point of death. There is a staange fatality after the switch man. The street commissioner should also be made the health officer and then the dirty alleys might be look ed after. Bessemer mast pay more attention to Its sanitary needs. 7 : V • imtiM "EVERY BESSEMER LADY SHOULD ATTEND OUR GRAND EASTER Wm^OPENING SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING : : : : Ami all day MONDAY.

Harry Perlet will be an aspirant for the city clerkship all things being favorable. Alderman Hart reckoned without his host when lie threw himself on the mercy of his railroad friends. Sol Fisher and Frank Maxheimer are also railroad men and will each capture more of that vote than Mr. Hart. There were combines a year ago but now there are combines within combines, and only the very ob servant liuvo the keys to the com bination. Some men are fortunate even in their misfortunes and seem to be born under a lucky star. Mr. shockey furnishes au example in his failure to recelvo the nomination for mayor on the democratic ticket. There were 690 votes cast at the city election one year ago. There should be at least 750 ballots count ed a week from next Tuesday. The clean sweep made by the new council of one year ago instead of meeting with the approval of the public was everywhere condemned and the silly act is meeting with just censure, as a couple of would-be candidates for re-election have dis covered. Two other members of the groat reform council will dis cover how highly their services are appreciated April 4. Williams, Dempsey and Colvin make a great tandem team. O. A. Lee is a man of good judge ment, a good talker and would make a good alderman. Vote for him or voto for Leithead. The race in the 2nd ward lies en tirely between D. H. Evans and George Jackson, the republican and democratic nominees. James Fer guson, the people’s party candidate will be too far behind to see the finish of the race. Why was he put up? To Trade —Six poople’s party votes in the 2nd ward to trad* for a vote for Williams. Address “Trix” cars Indicator. I. D. Jessup is about as lively a central chairman as ever came from Kansas. Th# people’s party select ed their most active man when they picked him out. No matter which of the three candidates for mayor may be elected Marshal Cummings will get his walking papers mighty quick. J. K. Dempsey’s friends had the primaries put up fine and captured the convention by eleven to nine. Mr. Dempsey’s candidacy for mayor for a second term was a suprise, but as he is one of Bessemer’s foremost men no one should have a kick coin ing. E. F. Douglas openly announces himself a candidate for city marshal Judge Wlllauer, the republican central chairmnn is as diligent as any of the candidates and is doing some heavy work for his ticket. Should R M. Quackeubush be elected alderman the people of the fourth ward will have a capable, an intelligent and an honest represent ative. The next city council would make no mistake in giving the city hall janitorship to J. H. Lynn. C. L. Funk anil H D. Foster have shaken hands over the contest for the city treasurership nnd are running like a pair of racers coining down the home stretch. Manager J. A. Kebler. Manager J. A.

If there should be any one who feels that the nrticlo in tills issue on the viaduct bonds does any man an injustice, the columns of this paper are open to reply. No advantage will be taken of a man because he has no newspaper of his own. If the Indicator lias made a mis statement it is ready to be convinced of tt. Tlie voting of $260 interest on those bonds was a bad piece of business, gentlemen of the city council, and if possible you should explain it away. The city council voted at the last meeting to increase the pay of members of the council from S3XO to $5.00 per meeting. !

No one can afford to miss seeing one of the finest per formances ever given in Pueblo. “A TURKISH BATH.” Once in a while a farce comedy is better than the expectation, nnd such is tlie case with “A Turk ish Batli.” Marie Heath, who is the chief attraction, plays tlie child better and more naturally than any other grown up actress on the comedy stage. Her voice, even, is childish, though she sings with a good deal of taste and execution. Lilly Durham also sings very well, nnd tiie voices of Fannie and Jeppie Delano are heard to good advantage iu tlie concerted pieces. Frank Murphy as Robin McGoogle, tiie Irish policeman, is very amusing, aud T. D. Miles makes an excellent darkey. All the fun of tlie piece is is clean and bright, without any suggestion of coarseness or vulgarity but with absurd and laughable situations and incidents. Tlie “Turkish Bath” will be an agreeable surprise to theatre goers. At the Grand opera house next Wednesday night, March 29tli. Of Importance to the Traveling Public.
