Judging from presont indication* politic* will be hot in Pueblo county uext fall. Bessemer will be in the field and will demand a couple of important olllces. North Pueblo would make a great mistake by selling its water works to a syndicate, it would be an act of retrogression and particularly at this time the popular idea is for the city ownership of such public nec essities as water works, street rail ways, telephone and the lighting system. It is estimated that there are 500 bicycles in use in Bessemer and Pueblo. Many of these are $l5O wheels while others are worth $125, SIOO and from that down to a few dollars. If the wheels would be averaged at SIOO, which is low enough it means a total investment .of $50,000. 1 A bank would no doubt do' a thriving business in this city’. Only a short time ugo the prospects looked bright for a bank building on Northern and Evans avenues but the backing down of some of those in terested checked the project for thq time being. An institution of the kiud is needed. The Union Railway Co. of Pueblo, a new organization, has asked for and will obtain permission from the city council to lay trucks for street cars on certain thoroughfares of that city. The new company will reserve the right to use the cable system, the storage battery or the overhead trolly system. It is not at all surprising that most of the expostulations against opening the World's Fair on Sun days come from the New England states. Two-thirds of the letters written to the directory of the Fair protesting against the opening of the Fair on the Sabbath come from this quarter while the farther west the fewer the protests. The people of Massachusetts and Connecticut in particular still cling to the narrow teachings of the Puritan of by-gone days. It seems that the newly organ ized Union Railway Co. of Pueblo desires to extend a line along Spruce street in this city, which desire has aroused a spirit of hostility among some of the people farther west who declare that the line must come up Eaton avenue or Cedar stueet or not at all. They state tlmt should the new company petition the city council for a franchise along Spruce street they will put in a counter petition asking the council to refuse the franchise. Meantime the Spruce ateet people are lying low. It would please men of extreme views to see the Geary law rigidly enforced, but men of conservative notions favor moderation, and they are right The safety of American residents in China demands this and the hitherto liberal construction placed upon everything by the United States government demands it. It is one thing to keep a foreigner out of this country but quite a dif ferent thing to drive him out. Such harsh meaus should only be resorted to when Americans in China are called home and when all efforts to keep Chinamen out of this country have failed. • Considerable mining interest is going on just now in Turkey Creek. Within the last ten days some valu able finds in free gold are reported and prospectors are turning their attention to that locality. The dis coveries have been made at the head of Turkey Creek about thirty-fiv* miles north-west of there, and fifteen mile* south-east of Cripple Cr**k. The formation is *aid to be nearly the ■ame as that of the latter place though the rich deposit* are nearer the surface. Bessemer and Pueblo should cinch this camp and if it prove* to be rich these cities would he greatly profited.

The lives of Even Owen and Griffith Harris instantly crushed out beneath the wheels of a street car — Whiskey the cause —The jury exonerates the motor man from uli blame. One of the most horriblo acci dents that ever happened in this city occured at 11:20 o’clock last Monday night when Even Owen and Griir Harris were instantly killed and fearfully mangled beneath the wheels of a street ear at ttie cross ing of Northern and Evans avenues The struggling men fell in front of a moving car and their lives went out like a Hash. It was at that hour that the two unfortunate men with other pas sengers were returning from Pueblo. At the corner of Northern and Evuns avenues they all got off, the ear, No. 4, William Clifford motor man, going on to to the terminus. Coming back at what was said to be the usuul rate of speed the motor man saw two men standing close by the track. When within a few feet of them the men engaged in a struggle and fell in front of the car the motorman being unable to check it In time to save their lives. In a couple of minutes a large crowd hud gathered to view the fearful sight. Harris had fallen beside the track, bis head resting on tiie west rail. The wheels passed over his head just above the ears crushing it entirely off, carrying his skull and brains in Ills hat severul feet beyond. Owen hud fallen fully between the trucks and was rolled over aud over until the end of the plank crossing was reached when the depression between the rails permitted the guard to catch liis body and the wheels passed over it crushing the bonus aud mangling the flesh. Death was instantaneous with both men. About two o’clock tiie undertak ing wagon of McMahon Jc Collier ar rived and after acting Cor. Brasius had surveyed the scene of the ac cident the remains were gathered up and taken to the morgue. The following morning crowds of usurious people gathered at the spot And gave expression to their horror. .At 9 o’clock Tuesday morning a jury composed of George Willauer, John Kune, M. F. Dempsey, Thomas James, Daniel Shay William Farm er was impanneled at McMahon <fc Collier’s undertaking rooms when thp following facts were produced: The two dead men with David Griffith, Janies Lewis, Miss Anuie Llolyd, Mrs. Nellie Jones and a stranger whose identity was not established wore passengers and all got \ off at the crossing named. William Clifford was motorman and 18. VV. Carter conductor. The men lin the oar wero under the in fluence of liquor. Owen was quar relsome aud did not want to get off. After Vetting off some fighting was indulgV-d in in which the mysterious stranger took an active part. Lewis and Griffith testified to this. The women; knew but little as they bad made &!T directly after alighting. The straightest testimony came from George Tremlin, the colored minister who said that he had been attending a festival of his brethren in the little building corner of Northern and Routt. Ha was ad vancing toward the car tracks when he heard the two men who were afterward killed talking loudly. One was determined to board the oncoming car and go back to Pueblo; the other was tryiug to persuade him not to go. As the car approach ed the men locked and struggled, falling in front of the car as before stated. It seems that Harris was the man trying to get in the car and Owen was trying to hold him back. Both were drunk and reckless of the danger they were in. The story of a mysterious big man pounding Owen and Harris, the men who were killed, and Griffith and Lewis, wit nesses is not generally credited. The jury adjourned until 3 p.m. aad ngain until 0 p. m. when it re paired to the spot where the ac cident occurred to view the grounds aud establish comparisons, a crowd attending. Clifford, the motorman, was ordered to take the fatal car by the crossing in the same manner as ho did at the time of the killing. This he did, making a good stop and to the satisfaction of the jurors. Manuger Chubbuck aud Supt. Martin of the car com pany were present. After some dis cussion the jury went to the city hall uud about midnight brought in the following verdict: “Even Owen and Griff Harris came to their death by falling under and being run over by an electric metor. We further And that Even Owen and Griff Harris were at the time under the influence of liquor. We herewith exonerate the said motorman from all responsibility.” There are a few who endeavor to fasten the blame on the motorman but the accident was one of those unavoidable happenings and it is wrong to blame the motorman with carelessness. Whisky was the oause and there the blame should 11*.

Tiie Geary law compelling the registration of Chinese or their ex pulsion from this country is render ed inoperative for the reason that there are practically no funds to transport the unwelcome element. Secretary Carlisle says there is only sf>,ooo in the fund that may he used for this purpose and that by July Ist not more than SOO,OOO would be available. If it takes SIOO to send a Chinaman out of the country the treasury would he ex hausted by deporting GSO, and as there are about 100,008 unregistered Chinese in the country the work of gelling rid of them would he slow and at the same time very expensive. A feeble attempt may be made toward enforcing the Geary law and a few Mongolians he banished but it is altogether probable that the time for registration will he extended and the law complied with in that respect.

A Meeting That Was Short ami Sharp A special meeting of the city council «as held Wednesday evening, all mem bers being present. Mayor Dempsey said it had come to his knowledge that the Pueblo Street Railway Co. were contemplating the tearing up of the track on the fair ground line and astted the pleasure of the council in the premises. Alderman Miles made a kick and thought the company should put carß on the line instead of tearing up the track. Company hnd stubbornly re fused to give service to the people out there. Attorney Lennnrd was instructed to draw up an injuction restraining the cempany from removing the track from Acero and Thatcher avenues. Alderman Leithend moved to have Mayor Dempsey and Attorney Leonard make an effort to compromise with the C. C. F. & I. and the C. C. &I. D. Co. regarding the matter of withdraw ing from the the city. Carried. Alderman Fisher thought the mar shal should be instructed to ascertain if liquor was not being sold in the city without the vendors taking out license. Adjouned. Would Tear up the Fair Grounds Street Car Tracks. In accordance with action of the city council Attorney Lennard drew up papers Thursday restraining the Pueblo City Railway Co. from removing the tracks on the fair ground line, the papers being duly served. The in tention of the railway company created some excitement in the western part of the city and all Wednesday night Marshal Shay had the truck patrolled by police to prevent any activity on the part of the company. If the Indicator is correctly informed the people of Acer* and Thatcher avenues were to have the line and service if they would put up a bonus of $20,000. They raised $14,500 but the difference of $5,500 not £being forthcoming the com pany never put *n regular service and considered that the people had not carried out their part of the oontract. The city has never granted a franchise on that line to the company and claims that the oompaay having laid down the track muat leave it. What action the railway officials will take remains to be eeen. Manager H. E.

Frank Kproul, a switchman at the steel works was run over by a car at the entrance to the yards Wednesday evening at 5:16 o’clock, tiie wheels pass ing over both legs close up to the body, smashing the members so that they hung on only by shreds. The company’s were soon: with him and bad him removed to the j company s hospital where he died at 8:30, only about three hours after the terrible accident.
