Tiie Pueblo Independent, a weekly newspaper, will appear to-day under the management of W. J. Jackson. The only sure tliiug about the election next Tuesday is that but one candidate out of three will be elected. Bessemer needs men at the head of allairs who can and will push her along. The times demand the elec tion of able, energetic men. The advice of the politicians to go early to the polls and vote often has not heeu given since the inauguration of the new system of voting. Inasmuch us J. T. West and Har ry Hart have never done anything to recommend them to re-election they should be downed. Vote against them. Br recent act of the legislature change of residence can be made by voters up till the day of election, providing the elector has not moved out of the precinct. This is a step in the right direction. Ik you want to vote a straight ticket put an X directly beneath the emblem on the ticket. If you vote a mixed ticket place the X after each name of each candidate for whom you desire to vote, omitting it from beneath the emblem. Don't scratch names or the ticket will be thrown out. A new G. A. It. post of all the ex-soldiers of Bessemer and Pueblo is to bo .organized in Pueblo next Thursday evening. Department Commander Kennedy will be present and he desires all those who are members of some post at a distauce to get transfer cards so that they can come into the new organization. This is the proper move and should be a successful one. The call is published in this issue. Never miss an opportunity to say a good word for Bessemer. There is much in talk. Well directed talk will build factories, business blocks, residences. It will make this a city of 10,000 in les9 than two years. If the people here would follow the example of the Kansas town builders and lose no opportunity to say a good word for their town and for one another, they would be surprised at the beneficial results. The viaduct bond transaction whereby the city paid the Uullen Bridge Co- $250 interest on bonds that had never been transferred to that company has been tho all ab sorbing topic of conversation this week. The action of the council in allowing the interest is univer sally denounced and explanations ure demanded on all sides, it was a strange piece of business to say the least to allow interest on those SIO,OOO bonds for a half year when they had not been transferred to the Bullens, a demand never having been made for them. When the contract for building the viaduct was let to the Bullen Bridge Co. it was with the understanding that the Bullens should take the bonds at face value at five per cent per annum, they to pay for the blank bonds, the cost of advertising, en gineering, the plans and spec ifications. Such being the agre«p ment why did tbe council proceed to hire J. C. Bland of Colorado Springs to do the engineering, paying him SSOO for his services? Why get this work done several months ago and no move yet being nqade towapi commencing work on the structure? According to the terms of contraot the Bullens should be allowed to hire their own engineer instead of the town advancing his fee of SSOO. True, the money will srfme day be withheld from the proceeda of the bonds, but when? And why the tofq bp qqt of the qse of sftQo for qeveral months. Such Wh flnancierifig will blaet the political hopes of any n»ao, aud R*njr asd J. Y. Weal were parties to the tease set! on. .Voters of the let and 4tfctep»»lmr*!e. .. i: THE ANNEXATION BILL. House bill No. 527, introduced by Mr. Wicks by request, providing for the annexation of contiguous towns or cities, passed the house last Mon day; Mr. Wicks himself lighting the bill to the last. The original bill has been so changed that the author could scarcely recognize it, the amendment which so infuriated the lion of the Pueblo delegation being that whieh changed the number of petitioners. The original bill pro vides that whenever not fewer than 200 tax-paying electors in any town or city asking to be annexed to any contiguous town or city, sign a petition to that effect, filing the same with the city clerks of each town respectively, then the proper author ities shall submit the question to the voters of such towns or cities. The amendment reduces the number of petitioners to twenty-five, the pe tition to be filed with the clerk of the county court and the election may be ordered to be held at the next regular electiou or at a special election, the result to be decided by a majority vote. This changes the whole plan and if the bill pass the senate will cause mi endless trouble. The contest will assume iu a measure the phase of the old fashioned county seat lights. Twenty-five tax payers enu be found or bought iu any city, Bessemer being no excep tion, to file such petition and the excitement commences. As they sa}' in the general assembly, “an emergency exists.” therefore the bill as amended should be killed. Twenty-five is two much of a minor ity and the mutilated Wicks bill looks too much like a brother to the hated Drake bill. FOR A BOARD OF TRADE. Editor Indicator. Dear Sir; Is it not possible for you through the columns of your valuable paper, to bring before the people the nec essity of organizing themselves into a business community for the ad vancement and interest of the city. Those who are interested in Bes semer will be in favor of organizing a Board of Trade, so that we can pre sent our industries to the public in proper light. You say to an Eastern man that you live in Bessemer, and he wouders what Bessemer is; he supposes it is a small suburban town such us adjoins Pittsburg, Cleveland, Allegheny City and other large man ufacturing cities in the east. They do not know of our fine residences, beautiful streets, and a pay roll amounting to one hundred and thirty thousand dollars paid out every thirty days. We should organ ganizc ourselves, and induce stores and other industries to come to our city. Pueblo, and all other import ant cities, have a Board of Trade to advertise their advantages and in duce capital to come to them, then why not Bessemer? Banks and other business houses will follow, and you will be surprised to see the ad vantage of an institution of this kind. Let the people know we arc alive and and full of energy. Yours respectfully, J. E. Miles. Mr. Miles is on the right track. The question of organizing a Board of Trade was discussed to some ex tent several months ago but fell through. It should be revived, and if Mr. Miles with others will push the matter it would be a great ad vantage to the city. Bessemer must let the world know that it is some thing more than a suburb of Pueblo. Precinct Crossroads.

A few Words About Each of them. FOR MAYOR. Charles F. Colvin, republican candi date for mayor, was born in Union Co., Indiana, near Richmond in 1857. In 1872 ho removed to Topeka, Kansas, where he engaged in the baggage de partment of the A. T. AS. F. R. R. where ho remained until 188", when lie was sent to Pueblo to take charge of the baggage department of the Pueblo Union Depot Co. as general manager. Mr. Colvin has resided at 830 Evans avenue since 1880, owning a valuable house and being a heavy taxpayer on other property, 110 is a Hober, in lustrious young man and if tho ro iponsihilty of the mayorship ho thrust upon him he will fill tho position with ibility and fidelity. Wherever known he has tho confidence of all, which is n very good recommendation. You wi 11 bo on the right track by throwing off your coat and working for him, a straightforward, conscientious citizen, and make him tho next mayor of Bes semer. FOR TREASURER. C. L. Funk, familiarly known as “Chris,” the popular young clerk at the Colorado Trading Company’s store, was the unanimous choice ot the re publican convention, a “send oil” for which he has reason to be proud ns it was an expression of tho good will of Ilia party. Chris has many friends throughout the city, who will support him regardless of politics and he is considered tho surest man up for office. Though a republican ho is not n partisinn and this fact will make him votes on the outside. Honest and up right, n good accountant and business man, the honor of the city treasurer ship might well be intrustod to him, and will be a mark of the esteem in which he is hold by the city at large. Give him your vote. ALDERMAN 1ST WARD. Sol Fisher is tho man from the Ist. He is the coming man because of his popularity and because of his well knowD business ability. There will be plenty of work for tho next council to do and each ward should see to it that none but men of business activity and sound financial views be elected. There is usually nn uncertainty as to what sort of a representative a man will make, but the voters of No. 1 have no apprehension. They feel that Sol Fisher is the man for whom they have been looking and will roll up a big majority for him on election day. ALDERMAN 2ND WARD. Tho republicans of the 2nd wnrd after much casting about decided that D. 11. Evans is about tho best candi date for alderman that could be select ed. Mr. Evans is engaged in the rail department of the steel works and has made a host of friends among his co workers who will giVe him their solid snpport. The steel works men are not heavily represented anti without re gard to politics they will support one of their number, especially when he is a good selection and a man who would look out for the best interests of the city. None can deny that Mr. Evans is a first-dais citizen and would work faithfully for his wnrd and the good of the city at large. Vote for him* ALDERMAN 3RD WARD. The third ward would be ably represented by selecting R. M. Qunckon bush, the well known grocer. It was only after the most urgent solicitation that he consented to tho nomination of nldermnn, blit his orectutlve and business ability were sufficient recom mendations for his friends to force the nomination upon him. Mr. Quackait bush possesses the qualifications nec essary to make him a useful member of the council. While the good of the whole town would be looked after, the people out by the lake and in the western part of his ward weuld receive the attention to which they are en titled but which has so long been de t«i«d them. He should be elected. ALDERMAN 4TH WARD. As a faithful, energetic, intelligent public official J. V. Leithead proved his worth when a member of the late board of trusteee. A good financier, a believer in economy and yet alwayt public spirited be made oqh C\f the best (tqstqqe’(tje town ever: had and should be elected by a big majority on the re wrd made. It was owiqg tq persietfnur that koee oompany No. 3 organized, giving protection from fire toihe iakeeide people, and it wee largely owing to bis endeavor that the viaduct bonds were voted. J. V.

HEITLER, 309 Santa Fe Ave. Political Squiblets. The total number of votes cast at the city election one year ago was 508, of which number Ist ward cast 143, the 2nd 138, the 3rd 120 and the 4th 180. The fourth is therefore the heavy ward. On account of failure to register tho vote will he light in proportion to the population, ft is now well known that a large number have failed to comply with the registra tion law. Ilarry Hart voted to move the town coiv yard Into tho midst of the finest portion of the municipality The people will have an oppor tunity to express themselves on the bond busiuess next Tuesday and two candidates for re-election will bo lost In the shuttle. Politics are an unknown quantity and always will be so long as all the candidates can get a promise of support from the same man. The time was when a man could by a little smooth work fulfill a pledge of this kind but this was before the inauguration of the little stall. Don’t vote for a fossil and don’t vote for a spendthrift. A back number man has no business in the council and a man who has no idea of values has no business In the council. Hern is a problem: If the $ 10,000 viaduct bonds draw five per cent interest before they are sold what will be the probable rate of interest when they are duly disposed of: E. P. Price is seeking the position I of pound master, subject to the j will of the next council. Mr Price is the man for the place and lias friends by the score in all parties who will rejoice to see h*m succeed. How ephemeral is power. Only one short year has slipped away and vet some of the heavy aldermen have “busted” like soap bubbles; and the crash has not come yet. Frank Johnson has been made chairman of the democratic cen tral committee and Is working act ively for tho success of his ticket. Frank Is young and energetic and takes to politics like a duck to water. The central committee made a good choice in liis selection. Now that J. E. Jones has left the city for good the now council will have an aldermauic vacancy to fill In the 2nd ward. His selection will depend altogether on who the lucky candidate will he and so there is no use In speculating for a while. Judge Willaner for tho republican, Frank Johnson for the democratic and I. I). Jessup for the people's party, are central chairmen of tho three respective parties who are working like grangers for tho suc cess of their tickets. D. W. Hartnett is confined to his room a part of the time on account of nn attack of la grippe, and is pay ing but little attention to how the •lection Is going. A sick man and politics make uncongeninl cpqi panions. Borne evil minded prevaricator having started the report tlmf'scab’’ labor was employed on the Dempsey —Langdon block, J. K.
