J. K. Dempsey possess the übility
to make a first-class mayor.
The total rote polled Tuesday was
710, a gain of 123 over last year.
Wkrt aud Hart were both hand
somely defeated. Bury the hatchet.
Jagkhon received a majority of 20
over his opponents. A plurality was
too lame for him.
The great question of the hour
is, was there a combine, aud if so,
who were in it?
In the 2nd ward George Jackson
received 90 votes, D. H. Evans 03
and James Ferguson what was
W. S. Williams increased the
people’s party vote from 73 one year
ago to 188, a gain of 115. Mr.
Williams did well.
The political complexion of the
nsw council will be, four republicans
and three democrats with demo
cratic mayor and an alderman to
The republicans swept everything
in Pueblo with the exception of the
city auditor. J. 11. Loor, the only
lone democrat was re-elected to
succeed himself.
Had the duty of registration beeu
properly looked after the vote would
have exceeded 850. If you don’t
register you don't vote under the
present system.
Sol. Fisher went u-fisliing and
captured the alderman’s chair from
the ward by a plurality of 22, his
vote being 81. Muxheimer come
out second best.
Wlien J. E. Miles won the alder
manic honors from 11. M. Quucken
bush he defeated a good man, and
the successful candidate is generous
enough to say so.
The Bpoils were eventy divided
among the democrats aud republicans
Dempsey, Jackson and Miles beiug
the winners on one side and Funk,
Leithead and Fisher on the other.
The people’s part}* polled a good
vote for mayor and treasurer. The
candidates in the Ist and 4th wards
ulso received a large vote, Frank
Mnxkeiraer's being 57 and O. A.
Lee’s 50. lu the 2nd and 3rd the
P. P. was lost sight of.
Carter Harrison was elected
mayor of Chicago which means that
the suloons, the guinbling houses,
the dives and the dens will be thrown
wide open during the World’s Fair
and lawlessness will go unbridled.
The election of the uoted Carter was
a mistake.
The vote on the democratic and
republican candidates for mayor was
almost the same as that of one vear
ago. A comparison shows that Demp
sey, democrat, received 307 votes and
Colvin, republican, received 224.
One year ago Shockey, Tlemocrat,
received 300 and Rees, republican,
223 votes. It is a curious fact that
although the city is republican a
democratic mayor should be elected
on both occasions and by almost the
same plurality
At the City election of 1892 C. R.
Adams who headed the peeple’s
ticket received 73 votes. Last Tues
day W. S. Williams raised the vote
to 188, making it more than two
and ono-half times as large. The
aggregate vote for the leading aider
man in each ward in *92 was 90,
while in this election the combined
vote of the aldermen on the people’s
ticket was 148. The third party

Geo. W. Willai er, chairman of
ilie republican central committees [
worked hard for the election of his
ticket but the success of all the
candidates was not on the pro
gramme. Although he worked
actively and easnestly the fates were
against lmn aud lie had up-hill work.
Frank Johnson, the democratic
chairman and I. D. Jessup, people’s
party chairman were also working
zealously far tho success of their
candidates and showed excellent
generalship. The result was that of
the six elected, three are republicans
and three are democrats, while the
strength of the people’s party was
increased more than 100 per cent,
showing good work on ail sides, it
was an active campaign.
A track for the ore buggies is beiug
laid at the furuaces. Tills will

It is the first track of the kind laid

Foreman Brown is pushing the
rail mill to Its full capacity, several
orders being on hand that require
immediate attention. The C. B. & (J.
lias raised its order from ten to
twenty-five thousand ton* which
will keep tilings moving for some
time. Work must be begun on the
order some time this month, 2,500
tons being wanted by May Ist. The
rail is to be sixty-hve pound weight.
At present th 3 rail mill is working
on a three thousand ton order for
the Santa Fe. It is a sixty-six
pound rail and will lie shipped to
Dodge City, Kansas.
The D. & R. G. order for five
thousand ton* of seventy-five pound
rails will be gotten out us soon us
possible, that road requiring rails
for repairs, though it is doubtful if
any new extensions will be made
before fall.
Tho IT.l T . P. railroal lias an order in
for fifteen thousand tons, part of
which will he wanted soon. It is
also likely that the M. i*. will place
an order for the extension from
Pueblo to Gunnison. Owing to the
general weakness of the machinery
many small break downs occur
which checks progress.

City Election.
Bessemer had a quiet though
earnest election last Tuesday. The
respective candidates aud their
friends worked like beavers. Central
Chairmen, Jessup, Johnson and
Willauer for the people’s, the demo
dratlc and the republican parties
were every where with the carriages
hustling voters to the polls uud kept
the dust flying. There was un
usuul iudustry iu this line and many
a nmn got a free ride. Bets were
few. Cigars were plentiful aud the
thirsty knew the location of a num
ber of blind saloons. The special
police had comparatively nothing
to do and no arrests were made.
The question generally discussed was
whether party lines wore being ad
hered to, but it WH9 one of those
problems which could be correctly
solved only by figures; when the
ballots were couuted it was found
that party allegience had been
brushed aside and that a vast num
ber of men had been covertly inde
pendent. Bessemer had once more
mixed its politics. Following is a
summary of the vote cast:
For Mayor—Dempsey, D. 307; Col
vin, R. 224; Williams, P. 188. Demp
sey’s pluralty, 83.
For Treasurer—Funk, R. 819; Fost
er, D. 212; Park, 187. Funk’s
plurality, 113.
Aldermen Ist ward—Fisher, R. 81;
Hart, D. 6G; Maxhimer, P. 57;
Fisher’s plurality 34.
Aldermen 2nd ward—Jackson, D.
90; Evans, R. 53; Ferguson, P. 17.
Jaokson’s plurality 37.
Aldermen 3rd ward—Miles, D. 76;
Quacksnbush, R. 60; Baker, P. 23.
Miles plurality 16.
Aldermen 4th ward —Leithead, R.
86; West, D. 71; Les, P. 52. Lelt
head’s plurality, 15.

though probably correct.

Clean the City.
In view of the fact that there 19 a
possibility of an outbreak of the
cholera too strict attention cannot
be given to the sanitary condition of
the city. The good example of a
few cities in the east that are sub
jecting themselves to a thorough
cleaning, should be followed by
Bessemer. The alleys should be
carefully searched and cleansed of
rottenness, garbage and debris in
back yards should he hauled away
or burned, hydrants should he
looked after, houses cleaned, etc.
Filth is the prolific breeder of
cholera. Thut dreaded epidemic
avoids cleanliness but revels in dirt
The city authorities should exercise
great diligence iu regard to clean
ing up the city which example
would be followed by the residents
and thus avoid bv a little care a
possible visit ef the plague. Many
of the larger cities are now under
going a general everhauling and
the strictest sanitary rules will be
enforced. Should the contagion
suddenly break out at the World’s
Fair the panic stricken visitors
would spread the disease to every
part of the country in a few days.
Cleanlinsss is the only preventative.

Tiie Grand opera house is fortu
uate in securing the first perform
auce in this state of Effie Ellsler’s
successful play ‘‘Doris.’’ The play,
depends largly on the setting t f
scenes, and all the requirements of
a large and well equipped stage, and
these can only be found in a theater
of the first class. The drama is an
undoubted success. The Detroit
Tribune says of it* i nitial produc
tion in that city: “ ‘Doris’ was pro
duced last night forth* first time.
It met with Instant stccese and was
vehemently applauded at the end of
each act.”
Miss Ellsler opens her engage
ment with her delightful impersona
tion of “Hazel Kirke.” the miller’s
daughter, and as this will be the
last occasien, in which she will ap
pear in this city, those who have
never availed themselves ef the op- i
portunity to see her, should do to
now. It is a performance never te.
be forgoten. Miss Ellsler’s appear
ance at the opera housi is limited to
