A vote next Tuesday for Long, Don ley and Davlh tor commissioners will be a vote for un economic county govern ment. Hkhhkmkk will give the republicans a good round majority. Not a populist will carry the vote of the steel works town. Tiik hoard of county commissioners have done a good thing in owning up the road from Vineland to this place. When the viaduct is completed Un people from that rural district and those from the smelter country will have an easy ingress to the city. The Denver Trades Assembly has been canvassing the late general as sembly in search of friends of the working people and has placed Bes semcr's representative, Hon. A. XV. Lennard, on the roll of honor. The trades assembly respectfully commends him to the laboring classes as being » champion of their cause. Tax elections in the various counties of the state next Tuesday will be of the greatest moment. The credit and good name of the commonwealth will depend upon the result. A populist victory would mean a loss of Eastern confidence and a loss of confidence would mean a withdrawal of capital to the detriment of every citizen in the state. Last Monday in the district court, Judge Elwell condemned his first man to the gallows when he senteuccd Santiago Torris, alias Indian Joe to be bangrd at Canon City between Novem ber 17 and 28d. Indian Joe. a swarthy Mexican of about forty years and with both legs sawed off below the knees was found guilty ot murdering Harry Howard, a ranchman Hviug several miles down the valley, and throwing the body in a well and covering it up with rocks and debris, where it was found by Sheriff Moses and bis deputies. The attorneys of the condemned man will ask for an appeal to the supreme court and whether a new trial will be granted or not it is morally certain that Governor Waite will commute the death sentcucc and that the gallows will be cheated of its victim. Tiib horrible assassination of Mayor Carter H Harrison of Chicago last Saturday seems to have been the crazy act of an Irresponsible crank to which no significance can be attached. In a remote way Prendergast, the murderer may be the creation of a hostile political faction as whs Quito, the slayer of President Garfield. The only signifi cant part of the transaction is that the murderer Is confined iu the anarchist cell where no doubt he properly be longs. The whole country mourns the tragic ending of the active career of Chicago’s able mayor, one of the most prominent figures sn the stage of American politics, a man possessed of wonderful personal magnetism and executive ability, a natural born leader of men who, had he been spared would have occupied higher political positions. Looki so at the local policical situa tion from an Indspendent standpoint, and contemplating the result of a change at this time, it seems infinitely better that the county government should continue to run in the same groove without change and without interruption. The contest In a large measure lies between the populists and the republicans, the democrats and in dependents holding the balance of power. These controlling elements will do well to weigh their opinions carefully before expressing them at the polls next Tuesday. Under republican government this county enjoys the lowest rate of taxation of any county In the state to-day, its credit is good and its general standing is good at home and abroad, while under popu listic dominion the affairs of the state are impaired and it* credit almost rained, as witness the fact that state warrants go bagging *1 7ft c*nU, lad •too tfcu trmllaft aftnto for EMon wkotoaoto honaat obooat ntirrfy Colorado aaankoata Mat ooarod an, bj u. fooltoh tkroot ot yaaahg one*- tloo May tom, rapadlallag ladabtaftaaaa at*.

Where will it all end? Shortly after taklug hold of the steel works as super intendent T. W. Robinson commenced the trimming of the wages of the work ‘ngmen and the harder thu times the more he cuts. On Inst Wednesday further reductions* were made and the discontent throughout Bessemer is great, as well it might be. The men do uot mind being reduced to wages commensurate with the times but the reductions arc evidently so unfair and unreasonable that they protest. Under the new scale the firemen ami water tenders have been cut from 92.25 to 91.05 per day. working twelve hours. All the unskilled laborers have been cut from 91-75 to 91-40 for twelve hours, and from 91-05 to 91-80 for ten hours—not enough to pay for pro visions and house rent for a family, to say nothing of clothing and the other absolute necessaries. The tonnage men received a cut of teu per cent. Mr. Hohinson states that he was obliged to make the reductions in order to compete with the llliuois Steel Co. What arc the facts? The steel works are now doing little but getting out merchant iron, and the Imdicatok is in formed that the Illinois Steel Co does not make that product at all, nor is the company making any rails ut present. Mr. Robinson states that the laborers of the Illinois Steel Co. get 91-00 per day. The management did rut them down to 91-10 per day ut Joliet and the works were to have stalled up a week ago but the men refused to go to work. Whether or not the men here will ac cept the cut is a question. The bar mill is broken down and the test has not yet come. It is a down right shame that men must work from 6 o’clock in the morn ing until 6:30 in the evening for 91-40, or work two hours less aud get 91-30. It would not look so bnd if Mr. Robin son had not replaced the old employes, holding the best jobs with his own fnroriles and in almost every instance raised their wages, and they arc still holding their jobs and drawing these big wages while doing practicully noth ing. They hold sinecure positions, and often arc inen inferior to those whom they replaced. Home of them are good men aud liked by all. hut they are the exception. It is uot necessary to men tion names, for even the iuferior men are not to blame for taking a good thing when they get it. The steel workers of Bessemer have been patient and reasonable and it is entirely too bad that they should he thus imposed on. It will be a blessing to them and to the city in general when Superintendent Robinson's successor is appointed. ONLY ONE OF MANY. How a Bessemer Democrat Will Vote. Ed Indicatoh:—l am a humble follower of the democratic banner and have trained with the unterrifled all my life and would like to see them on top always, hut the fight in this couuty is between the republicans and the peo ple's party as a general thing aud as 1 would rather see the republican' in power than the populists, I will vote moßt of the lopublican ticket. lam glad to see such men as Johu Murphy, Tom Russell and Con Finn leave the pops. They will all vote the republi can ticket and so will lots of others who once thought the peoples' part) all right. The |H>ps killed themselves iu their convention for It was too much on the A. P. A. order. I ant a Bes semer democrat but I will not be alone In leaving my party and voting the republican ticket. I must except John R. Dixon. I)r. Dodds and Pud McCari den; I will support them and 1 think they will be elected. Respectfully, A Demockat. Tps unconditional repeal of the pur chasing clause of the Hherinau act is a great misfortune to the entire country but particularly so to the silver pro ducing states of the West. The silver market is certain to decline for a time and with tbs fall in value of that precious ore many silver mines arc likely to close until the demand causes them to be worked again. In the meantime miners will turn their at tention to gold mining and the world will move on as usual. Sour grapes anyway and Colorado must make the most of It. Tkb revised ordinances of Bessemer are now out in book form, the work of revision having bean done by City At toraey Lennard, and the books were published by the Ixdicatom. It was a much needoc t work and the laws of the city are row in such tangible shape that they can bo readily understood. ▲Homy Lennard had a particular and Ovdnonatask In revising and simplifying lbe ordinances.

Mayor Dempsey am! all the alder men except lucksnn present. A communication from tlit- Aineri can Bridge Co. of Chicago was read stating that the iron for the viaduct was ready for shipment Alderman Miles complained that tlie Bessemer Ditch Co. was too slow about making the extension to tlie Northern avenue bridge ami wanted action by the council. Mayor Dempsey, however suggested that the company meant to do t lie work as soon as possible but that funds were very short at this time. Mr Miles, therefore modified his views and lie reported to the council on the line laid out by the mayor. Marshal Shay reported three arrests tor October. The serai animal reports of the treasurer and clerk were read and re ceived. j Attorney Lennard was instructed to I investigate the matter as to whether it was tin: duty of ihe city fir tin ('. <\ A I. 1).

Rollins A Hon, of New York, brokers, urged the council to pay up interest on bonds due September Ist and a warrant was ordered drawn in their favor. The monthly pay roll and sundry bills were disposed of. The contract with the Btilicn Bridge Co. was read and laid aside without discussion. Complaint being made about cattle running at large. Alderman Fishci moved to have the police get after all trespassing stock. He said that many people believed that the herder had been taken off. Marshal Shay stated tiiat since the council cut off the horse feed for the herder the horse had been sent out to pasture and the poliee found it difficult work to chnsc the cattle on foot, though they did what they could. The mayor urged unusual diligence in this matter and the mooting adjourned About Weighing coal. To Thf. Besskmku Indicatoh:— In these bnrd times it behooves men of nil classes nnd conditions to look well to their expenses. This is applicable to city ns well as to individual interests and to this end let me call the attention of our city fathers to an item of ex pense taxed up to the people of Bes semer which is unjust, while the parties at the head of it do not aim to extortion, nor do the)’ gain by it ex cept byway of time, nnd of course time is money. I refer to the way people have to pay for the weighing of coal on the city scales. Three persons may order coal; one of them ordeis one ton, the other two orders one-half toil each, or three persons may order one half or one-fourth each; this is all loaded at one and the same time into one wagon with diffcicnt compartments aud the wagon is driven on the city scales to bo weighed but once. Now I don't claim tliut the coal in hulk is short, but this 1 do claim: that while the whole load weighes the totnl amount, yet who knows which of those three persons iiave too much, or more than they have paid for and which of the others have paid for more than they get? But then each gets a weigh bill and each pays teu cents for the weighing of his coal, or in other words, in this ease thirty cents is collected for ten cents wortli of work. Now who gets this twenty cents not earned? I don't pre tend to know, but this I do know, thnt a wrong has been done to some, or rather to every one that buys coal ex cept to them who arc aide to buy two or more tons at a iime. Now this is a matter that the city council should remedy. 1 don't say that the city scales should he abolished; far from it. hut l do say that men who sell coal a dollaror two more on the ton than the same quality etin lie bought for in Denver, 120 miles further from the mines than Pueblo is, should he mndc to deliver to every man the exact amount ordered, nst a pound more or less than is paid for. There are several things connected with this mat ter that I may mention in the future. I am no pcssimht or sorehead, but I am opposed to monopolies even in as little n thing as the weighing of coal especially when the poor man and con sumer has to suffer thereby. Once and a while.
