One Year $1 00 Six Mouths 60 Bknatokh Teller and Wolcott arc both absent from Washington, Mr. Teller making a tour of Mexico while Mr. Wolcott ie sojourning in Europe. Representatives Pence autl Bell are at their desks. Govkrnok Waite baa held his con vention of miners and although snubbed by msny camps that did not send rep resentatives at all, he has decided to call a special session of the legislature early in January. Poor, afflicted Colorado. Tine war in Mexico is said to exist principally in the minds of a number of ambitious newspaper rejiorters. The “rebels” will yet turn out to be com prised mostly of hordes of freebooters banded together for purposes of spoliation. The official returns on the equal suffrage vote have been canvassed, showing the amendment to have carried by a big majority of 0,847 votes. Governor Waite has issued the neces sary proclamation and now the work of female registration can proceed. Lots of good arable land awaits the diligent hand of the agriculturists down on the alluvial bottoms of the Arkansas. Large tracts of these rich bottoms are capable of being irrigated and if proper steps were taken it seems that the attention of colonists could be directed to this locality instead of being directed into the San Louis valley. According to some local newspaper contributors the salvation of Pueblo de pends upon a liberal support to tbe Grand hotel while others hold that the mainspring of prosperity is the support demanded by tbe Louis Frisch bser brewing company. In one particular the zealous contributors are correct, for eating and drinking is more than the life of trade—it is life itself. President Celvelnml’s message to congress shed no light on tbe Hawaiian question. The provisioiialists bold the fort while Queen Lil and the boys in blue are awaiting instructions front Uncle Bam. It is generally supposed that congress is opitosed to the queen and her royalist supporters and unless too strongly urged by the president will permit tbe provisionalists to retain power if they can. Colorado’s unemployed will not find tbe winter po-dull nor the hard ships so great aa will tbe same class in the overcrowed districts of the east. Here tbe number out of work is com partiveiy small, and there are few towns throughout the state but will provide more or less labor bv pushing improve ments. Besides, railroad traffic is looking up and the development of both silver and gold mines goes steadily on while the demand for coal is on the increase. That nomadic species of American gentry commonly called tramps will soon find a haven of refuge in Kansas if the behests of Governor Lewelllng sre to be obeyed. In a lengthy circular letter to the metropolitan police boards of the state he advises that hereafter tramps shall not be arrested and com pelled to work on rock piles for the common offense of riding on freight cars, begging, vagrancy, etc. Such action, be argues, is un-American and unconstitutional as It deprives a human being of liberty and exacts manual labor of him which is slavery. Now it the poor tramps throughout the country could only believe that the municipal authorities of tbe state would only mind the “guvnor” what a paradise they would find in Kansus. But alas, the stubborn Jaw hawkers are apt to ignore the executive advice even as they da in the high and dry kingdom of Colorado. That was rather a tame and de serted looking pmceseipn which peraambnlated the etreeto of Pueblo Tuesday night ib order to raise a crowd of workingmen to hold a mass meeting at the court house to encourage Governor Waite In hie extra sessloa scheme. The grand parade comprised ■even nw, Copt. O. 0. . Kick aril von, two colored drummers and font men carrying tranepnrendeo.

CITY COUNCIL A Large Crowd and a Lively Meeting. Bids for grading the viaduct approaches rejected—The work to be done by citizens under the supervision of the etieet commissioner—Police to serve full time—A $2,040 bill of the Bullen’a referred. A large and anxious throng of citizens greeted the city council at the meeting Wednesday night, drawn together on the strength of a petition asking that the grading to the viaduct be let by tbe dav to citizens of the town. It is not often that so large a gathering appear in the hall and they were not disappointed in their ex pectations, the work being left to the street commissioner who received in structions to hire none but citizens of the town and the heads of families. All members answered to tbe roll call. Mayor Dempsey in the chair. A lengthy petition from west side citizens asked for better fire protection, said citizens claimiog to represent from SBO,OOO to SIOO,OOO and felt entitled to better service. On motion of Aid. Jackson referred to fire and water com mittee. A monster petition signed by over 800 taxpayers asked that tbe grading for viaduct be let by the day to citizens of Bessemer. Alderman Fisher moved to grant, making the pay 174 cents per hour for man aud 35 cents per hour for man aud team. Also that none but the heads of families should be employed. Carried, Aid. Panne baker suggesting that Commissioner Burns discharge any man who would not work satisfactorily. All agreed. The Indicator’s bill for publishing city ordinances in pamphlet for 11 was allowed. Bids for grading were opened aud read in order to afford some idea as to what the work would cost They were 18 in number and were as follows, ail being based on a cu. yd: James Hovey & Co. 29i| cents Phil Driscoll 22J cents. A. O. Megrae 30 cents. C. F. McCarthy 34 J cents. Hugh O’Neil), Ist bid. 33J cents. Hugh O,Neill, 2nd bid. 21? cents T. F. Micbon 28 cents. A. F. Dukeman 80 cents E. F. Douglas 19 ccuts. A. E. Hull 27 cents. J. E. Murphy 27 cents. James Murphy 23 cents cents Adam Kuntz & Co. 20 cents. Taking tbe bill of E. F. Donglas. therefore, the lowest, aud taking Engineer Bicknell’s estimate of dirt re quired, 5,620 cu. yds., the cost would amount to $1,049.80. The fact that the aprons to the viaduct extend oui so far over the grade saves something like 1,600 yds. and the cost will not lie so great. The official reports of marshal Bbay, Clerk Johnston and Magistrate Darnell were received and filed. The Alamcnia Fire Ins. Co. of Pittsburg notified the council that Ihey had given up all Colorado fire in surance and had transferred their in surance without on the city ball to the Firemen's Fund Ins. Co. of San Fran cisco. Some discussion was caused by bills presented by several for services elec tion day as special police, certain aider men thinking that the county should pay all such bills. Attorney Leunard settled the matter by saying that special police are paid by the city and special constables by the county, and the Dills were allowed. On request of the Nuckolls Packing Cq§Mayor Dempsey advised that the fine of $lO imposed on Henry Costello last week for peddling meat without a license be remitted, he being in the employ of Nuckolls and said Nuckolls being se generous in assisting the poor with donations of meat. Remitted. Mayor Dempsey suggested economy by doing away with some of tbe elec tric lights, whereupon Aid Fisher mov ed to have all lights put out after mid night. Aid Pannebakcr objected on account of stealing. Lighting commit tee instructed to confer with Company. The Bullen Bridge Co. presented a bill of $9,040, balance claimed by them on viaduct. On motion of Aid. Miles referred to committee on public works, the mayor and treasurer with power to act. On motion of Aid. Martin the police Were again put en full time and order to keek the town clear of cattle. Adjourned. The ooneolldatloa ghouls are again at work, it teems, this time along the line of the law enacted by the last general assembly, and If they persist In their eff on a special election will be called in the spring to decide by ballot if Besse mer and Pueblo ah all consent to abide tthder (he tone municipal government. There will he lets of tlrae In which to dletim the question pro and con. At pneett M leehs « the mala Instigator* ef the movement are Inhabitants of that pettish of the eMy tm the bottoms south oetbe river ami thftl they have about eempftamd tfce neeMemy Hot of 100 The Lookout at the Steel Works. There is no prospect in sight for the steel workß to start up the first of January nor the first of February for that matter, uot-withstanding reports to the coutrary. A combination ot causes make it highly improbable that they will start up at an early date. Carnegie threw a huge sized objection in the way when he reduced the price of rails usiug such formid able competition'- autl President Cleve land evidently put a dumper on tilings when bis turiff committee made- recoin mendations of such wholesale tariff re ductions. It is not ut all likely that the C, F. & I. Co. will make much of a move until it is seen whut turn the tariff question will tuke in congress, the iron aud steel industry taking such an important place on the- free list. It is also pretty well known that the C. F. & I. Co , like almost every other big institution is not tlusii at this time and that it would be necessary to float more bonds before- the works can be put in repair, much less in running order. 80 for tbe present tbe prospect of resumption of work in ail depart ments is slim. Tbe bar mill, however, is riiuniug out a fe-w orders und it is to be hoped will con tinue to keep on the move. The em ployment is limited and so is the pay bill there is no alternative for the 100 men at work and they keep diligeutly pushiug along. QUEER SIGNS. Some o ft lie Funny Ones the Observer Sees Almut Town. It is strange how much abused is grammer. orthography, capitalization, punctuation, etc. hy the uverage painter A painter may be artistic but lie is in no sense exact in the formation of words and sentences ami all the rules to he observed in writing, and his blunders would sometimes drive a printer, who is the soul of precision, to dis traction were it not fortiie amusement ufTorded by some of the queer signs his eye catches every now and then nbout town. For instauce a wielder of the brush slapped a sign on u board near a prominent crossing in Bessemer und succeeded iu mangling his spelling thusiy: ‘-Lots for sale in this vicinity on easey termes.” A down town shoe store with a reckless disiegard for the use of cor rect langnagc throws the grammatical crank into a paroxism of mental agony by displaying iu conspicuous red nnd black letters the information that, “The bottom lias fell out." A home made sign just opposite the hoard of trade makes no attempt at orthography, grammar, embellishment or anything else, but it gets there just the tame. It proclaims iu attenuated, zizzag letters that look as if they arc scattering from an anarchist's bomb the knowledge of what is being done within. It rends: “Carpet clcaing and laid and house clealng.” The “e" in the word house is comfortably embraced in the the letter "s” but that is difficult of imitation here. “boston Baked hens" suitli another home made sign tacked on a south Union avenue lunch counter; hut of course these kindergarten attempts can not be laid at the door of the practical painter who has enough to endure. Not to his Liking. “Bee here.” said a prominent re publican of the city as he lounged into this qjlicc the other day, “I want to register a kick against Justice Wlllaucr." • What's the matter with the judge?" was asked. “Well, here’s what the matter is," said the visitor. “He is giving official patronage to P. J. Cummings who hangs around his office as a sort of deputy to Dick Cummings, the constable The judge was elected by republican votes and if he must occasionally have a special constable serve papers let him appoint a republican to serve them. I want you to publish this nnd say too that I am not the only one who is mak ing a kick on Judge Willauer tor cm ploying P. J."; and the man with a grievance went away. Off for the Divide. All the men mentioned in last week's issue who were to take claims in Wonderland huve gone on tbeii journey and filed on their homesteads. The list embraces Adam Kuntz, John Klink. Eli Gibson, William Farmer. Mike Dempsey, Dan Hhay, Clyde Bhoup, James and Ed Floyd and Harry David son, May they all grow rich. To be Commended. The council did a wise and gracious act in awarding the grading at tbe Northern avenue viaduct to day laborers, citizens of Bessemer and the heads of families. It may cost a little more than if it were let by contract but the money will be well apent aad will go where it will do the most good. Score another good deed for the city council.
