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
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
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

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
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
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
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
The street commissioner should

“A TURKISH BATH.”
Once in a while a farce comedy is
better than the expectation, nnd
such is tlie case with “A Turk

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
