The “cruel war” with the Nav ajocs m the southwestern portion of the state aud northern Naur Mexico is over. There has been an im mense quantity of printers ink de voted to the killing of one white man and the imprisonment of an Indian. Governor Waite vetoed the bill appropriating SIO,OOO for establish ing a college at Alamosa, and now the Independent—Journal of that place calls him a nonentity. The governor made a bad break and lias killed himself politically in the San Louis vullej. The World’s Fair edition of the San Francisco Chronicle is a wonder in the way of newspaper work. It is carefully edited, the news de partments choice, the illustrations first class nnd the paper contains sixty-four pages. The Chronicle is a credit to the Golden Gate. Credit is duo lo the board of county commissioners nnd to Com missioner Hubbard in particular for having secured the right-of-way for n public highway from Bessemer to Vineland, that rich agricultural section to the east. Work will com mence on the road at once nnd it will be completed in time to meet the viaduct on Northern avenue. Tiik worst advertisement Colorado receives in the East is the periodical Indian war fakes. It is noticeable that capital, enterprise and im migration keep out of a region represented to he infested by or threatened by scalp-taking redskins. Let’s have no more of this class of advertisement. It induces no im migration.—Rockey Mountain News. The city council will take steps toward restraining the steel works and the lake Minnequa properties from withdrawing from the city.

The case will come before the county court June 1. J. A. Wayland has just issued the first number of the Coming Nation at Gruensburg, Indiana. Mr. Wayland made the Coming Crisis a strong political factor in Pueblo and will surely make the Nation powerful in Greensbnrg. He has many ideas peculiar to himself hut he has the ability to lead and will build up a strong following of third party men in his new field. The Indicator this week pub lishes a list of voters registered in the four Bessemer precincts who failed tn vote nt the late election. Those who failed to attend the polls must show cause before the county commissioners why they shall not be considered non-residents and their names dropped. The object of the law to purge the records of all dead names is u good one. The Colorado Fuel & Iron Co., of this city, or rather of Bessemer, have petitioned the county court to be set outside of Bessemer, owing to the high rate of taxation, tfhls more firmly confirms the Opinion’s position that the citizens of Bes semer wiU not want consolidation with Pueblo, when their rate will bo forced from 10 mills to JH mills, with a total rate of more than. 00 mills, TheC.

Recommenda tion adopted. Committee on fire and water recommended that the hose com panies be more fully equipped with necessary apparatus. Adopted. Mayor Dempsey of the health committee read a report setting forth the dangerous sanitary con dition of tlio city and recommend ing that immediate steps be taken to clean up the alleys, back yards and urroyns of all filth. The report wus signed by himself, Dr. Dodds and M. J. Shay and was adopted.

Bids for the street sprinkling were rend aud referred to committee on streets and bridges with power to act. Bills of Martin Hughes for sprink ling, and Attorney Low for legal services were referred to finance committee. Mayor Dempsey explained that notice bad been served ou him of the intention to withdraw tiie steel works and lake Minnequa from the city aud thought some action should be taken in opposition Attorney Lennard being called on for advice said that the city should take a stand against the with drawal. He questioned that the C. F. & I Co. and the C. C. & 1. A D. Co. had good grounds for pulling •ut. These companies allege in tiicir petition to the county court that they furnish their own police force when in fact tlio steel works police are under the control ef the oity. The city fire department has always been called on for assistance and not until recently has the steel works procured hose of its own. He believed in obtaining assistance to fight the case and the the mayor was authorized to employ additional council. Jackson moved to repeal ordinance No. 63 relating to printing as it is a burden ou the records. The atlornoy was instructed to draw up an or dinance with such end in view. The ordinance was drawn up and passed first reading- Lelthead moved that the street commissioner have a box made for the safe keeping of tools. Carried.

AT THE GRAND. PRIMROSE & WEST. Every season they huvo something now to offer their patrons, until it would seem that novelty itself was ex hausted; but they have apparently dis covered a bottomless sea of minstrelsy delights, from which they continue to draw forth now wonders for their patrons delectations. They have colled beautiful scenic effects to the aid of wit and music, and one of the meet striking feature! of their performance is the charming picture disclosed at the beginning, wh*u the curtain goes upon a perfect bower of beauty, showing the company in a Japanese garden-scene, wreathed with lovely flowers, while in background luxuriant foliage, forming as brigli t a picture of uuturul beauty as one ruroly has tlio fortune to see on the stage. Ho vuriod is the entertain ment nnd so good each variety thnt it would be hard to find in a civilized com munity a tuste that the minstrels have not something to please, while the majority welcomes everything that conies ulong.
