'I be fanners down the Arkansas
valley arc busy with their spring
work and arc making good use of the
irrigating ditches.
School election next Monday.
W. L. Graham of the Western Na
tional bank will probably succeed
himself us director.
Unless spring showers soon set
l in it will be in order for Colorado to
import some rain-crows, tree-toads
and Frank Melbourne.
Tiik World's Fair opens Monday
next and for the next six months lids
planet will revolve on its axis for
the special benefit of Chicago.
Bessemer needs a bank, a post
olllce station, a dozen new business
blocks, a public park and a board of
trade. They will all come in time,
but the sooner the better.
There is an inviting field in Bes
semer for a bank. A banking in
stitution would do an enormous busi
ness and the men who buck such an
enterprize will he well rewarded.
The wonder is that a hank has not
been established here before this.
The street car line should be ex
tended from south Evans avenue on
out to the lake. The short cut
would save the people the hour
taken in riding the great horseshoe
bend and the street cur company
owes the improvement to Bessemer
as a simple act of justice.
It is a fact that any speculator
who puts his capital into u business
block in Bessemer can lease every
room before a stone is laid for the
foundation. Here is a great field for
merchants and the only drawback is
the want of more room. Wiio will
follow the good example of Messrs.
Dempsey and Lungdon and put up
the next block?
There are members of the present
council who were active in bringing
about the eity improvements us they
are to-day. The necessity of a public
park affords these same men with
the assistance of the other progress
ive aldermen an opportunity to add
to their record of public spirit. The
council should not delay in the mut
ter hut take active steps.
Women and women's rights are
fu9t coming to the front in the
Centennial state. The late general
assembly passed a law compelling
husbands to support their wives even
where there are a half dozen chil
dren to be looked after and the
much abused tnen are in a dilemma.
Now for nn exodus of the fair sex
into Colorado, for a husband means
u livlihood.
The Sparks finds it necessary to
again caution correspondents against
the indiscriminate use of the cditorul
“we.” It Ims been decided by high
authority that an editor, a king and
a man with a tapeworm are the only
persons entitled to say “we” when
speaking in the first person singular.
—Lamar Sparks.
And the editors who pluralize
themselves are fast dying out; let
crowned heads and “the man with a
tapeworm” have the field.
Champion James J. Corbett was
the magnet that drew a large Bes
seiner crowd to the Grand opera
house Tuesday night. Corbett is not
remarkable for muscular develop*
ment and is n man of pleasing ad
dress. In the language of a citizen
he “looks more like a gentleman than
a pugilist.” His success ns a boxer
is owing no doubt to his wonderful
activity and science as exhibited on
the stage. James J. mid bis pretty
wife are fair actors and have left a
good impression in the eity.
Bessemer needs more business
I houses. There is not an empty store
room in the city to-day and no move
ment is being made to provide for
the increasing demand although the
clamor is growing stronger and strong
er. It is strange that men with money
do not put their capitul into buildings
where the}* uan reckon on ut least
per cent on the investment.
When capital does seek this channel
of investment the building boom will
be astonishing and then the business
interests of the city will bu increased
to what they should be.
A force of men is at work on the
piers for the viaduct. The council
will take active measures to push the
structure to a hasty completion and
enable people to avoid the death trap
at the railroad crossing.
Four real live Indiatr., dressed in
their native picturesque garb are
walking the streets of Pueblo prob
ably looking out for sculps. Some
taxpayer should point out Kx-Dog
ktller Davis who is about to sue the
city for $1,500.
Thi: sl9 round trip rate to the
World's Fair made by the Santa Fe
was reduced by the I). & It. G. to $-15
the middle of the week and now a
still further cut to $lO is announced,
the combination being between that
road and the Missouri Pacific. The
Burlington will probably be in the
dual soon and then the rates will go
still lower. Wait a little longer be
fore making the trip.
County Clerk Henderson and his
deputies are preparing a list of names
from the registry of all those who
failed to vote at the last election.
The namo and residence of each
voter will he published and the de
linquent voter given an opportunity
to explain why lie did not attend the
polls; if his reasons are not suf
ficient his name shall lie stricken
off the registration lists. This is
done principally to purge the records
of the names of men who have
moved away. Bessemer has about
400 dead names on the list.
Why not have a public park? The
people demand it and the financial
condition of the city warrants it
Luke Minnequu is all right on oc
casions hut ilis too far ouL to suit all
general purposes. What the city
needs is a park within the heart
of the residence portion where it is
accessible and where it can be utiliz
ed. If the city council would make
itself popular it would provide for
the purchase of a block of ground,
fence it, plow it, sow it to grass and
set out trees at once. The city can
well afford to bond itsself for the
small amount requited. .Suppose
the bonds would run ten or fifteen
years, the present would only pay
tbe interest and the future would pay
tlie principal when it would be en
joying the luxuries of the invest
ment It would be a credit to tbe
city and add materially to its ap
pearance. By all means let the
council push the project.
The Colorado Coal and Iron and
Development company and the Colo
rado Fuel and Iron company on
Thursday filed a petition with the
county court askiug for the discon
nection of the steel works and the
Lake Minnequu property from the
city of Bessemer. This is in accord
ance with an act passed by the state
legislature of 1891, providing that
whenever the owners of an unplatted
tract of land of not less than thirty
acres lying on the border and within
the limits of a city, shall petition for
a dissolution from the city, then the
county court shall not sooner than
thirty days determine upon the merits
of such petition and issue the decree.
The loss of the steal works would
come a little hard on the taxpayers,
and doubtless there will he opposi
tion to losing this source of revenue.
The steel works folks argue that as
they furnish their own police force
and fire department and ask the city
for nothing, they do not feel like pay
ing city taxes. However, it is not
pleasant to contemplate the with
drawal nf the works even though
they would still he part of the city
for all prncticul advantages aside
from the payment of taxes. The
fear of consolidation with Pueblo has
probably caused this step to be
Excursion May 7.

Flourishing Ordway.
Ordway, a flourishing new town
45 miles east of Pueblo, on the
Missouri Pacific, Is to have a SIO,OOO
hotel, a flourishing mill with a
capacity of one hundred barrels per
day, and the town company are
erecting aa office building that will
cost SB,OOO and an elevator with a
capacity of 150,000 bushels. The
Colorado Land and Water company
are constructing n big canal that
will water thousands of acres of
fine agricultural land. Other im
provements are contemplated and a
big boom is predicted for Ordway.—

The Owls Came Forth.
A number of thu senior members
of tile Bessemer lire department
gavo a rousing banquet at the city i
hull last Huturdiiy night to which j
they invited a mi in lit r of their
friends, and the “rough necks” and j
the “dudes” mingled in the social
festivities of the occasion. The j
three score who were present enter- ]
ed into the happy spirit of the
banquet ami did their best to carry j
out the injunction to "eat, drink and j
be inorry.” The eloquent Judge I
Darnell was made chairman ami {
had before him a programme con- !
sisting principally of a number of j
toasts to which those called upon i
were expected to give extempor- j
uneous responses.
F. P. Hawke made u short talk on I
Bessemer; George Jackson paid his j
respects to the fire department; Conn |
Finn spoku of the beauties of Luke I
Minnequu, and a score of others j
who would die rather than appear
before an audience were promptly ;
fined by the chairman who brought j
a fifty pound dumb l>ell gavel down i
on the desk as u clincher, l'he oc
casion reminded Mr. liuwke of the I
first banquet he ever attended in ,
liossenier when Pud McCuddeu was j
on ouo side of a keg of beer and j
Judge Darnell on the other. The
conditions were now tiie same only
that both men were on tile sume ;
side of the beer —the outside.
Judge Darnell gave a really inter
esting talk on tlie past, present uud
future of the owl club, and told in
pathetic language of its departed
glory. The joyous recollections of i
the past when the laborer and the '■
most high aiul mighty at the steel 1
works bumped glasses in supreme j
happiness, made the present hard to
bear, uud all that remains for the
future of the joviul rollickiugs of tlie
past days of the famous owl club are
the faint cchoiugs out on the dreary
phlius of lone Timbuetoo. The
undent owl roost wus friendly even
as tlie hospital wigwau of the
Indian of a century ago before bis
contamination with tlie white man,
but other birds had come—the im
pudent mocking-bird, the dude
peacock, the lyre-bird uml jaybird;
tlie simple cuckoo; tlie prowliug
night-hawk, the ravenous vulture,
tiie hungry spoonbill, tlie cormo
rant, tlie pelican and even the un
welcome buzzard had intruded and
corrupted tiie roost of tlie groat and
honored owls, lie mourned its
lost prestige and he called upon
Mat and .Sol Meddings for a song
with a bango accompaniment to
sootli the sorrows of the members
present while they endeavored to
"quench their unquenchable thirst.’’
Sam McCadden, J. S. Craig, and
Clydo Hhoup gave some good ex
hibitions of clog and jig dancing
and Hugh Donahue, John Lynch
uml Sol Meddings sang.
Tiie supper was prepared under
tlie direction of Mrs. (J. W. Me
Caddeu whose culinary skill was
highly complimented by all. Mrs.
McCudden as a cook is par-excel
lent. Pud McCadden was a favorite
and contributed largely to the
merrment of the banquet. The owls
are not dead yet; if they have been
they were surely resurrected Sat
urday night.

Ilallen and Hart will bring to the
Grand opera house Saturday night,
April 29 this week their latest success,
called “Tho Idea.” This piece is tho
joint composition of Herbert Hall Wins
low and Joseph Hart, and has been
uncommonly well received in other
citios. In Now York it made a decided
hit, and oiforts were made to continue
tho engagement beyond the time
orginally planned, but engagements
hero and elsewhere would not permit.
Halleu and Hart enjoy a reputation for
individuality in their work and enter
tainment, which has always promised
groator and bettor work for tho future,
and this is said to be in a measure
realized in their latest production “Tbe
