One Year SI 00 Hlx Months 50 Tue Colorado Midland is actually running trains on the new road from the Divide to Midlund, making the distance to go by stage into Cripple Creek only nine miles. President Cleveland was positive that the Sherman law alone stood in the way of prosperity. Now that the silver law has been repealed. Mr. Cleve land, what is this slow, poky old country waiting tor? It is to be hoped that Lieutenant Peary will And.a country in the "frozen north" thnt will be cold enough to contain all the anarchists of the world where, in peual servitude they shuli abide and have ample time to cool off. What the unemployed ask for is work, not aims; a chance to earn a liv ing. If there is any possible op portunity for the city to furnish work to the men who are in enforced idleness it should be done and done quickly. Grover Cleveland stoops from his high position to petty retaliation on the silver advocates in congress. He is "getting even" with Colorado's senators nmL representatives by not consulting them in any appointment in the state. What childs play. On account of the extension of the Midland railroad to within nine miles of Cripple Creek the Santa Fe will get practically all the freighting of the ore, and iu order to get its share the Rio Grande will build a line from Florence into the camp. Work will begin next month. President Diaz of Mexico turus up his nose at Colorado, aud when it comes to coming the silver of this state into Mexican dollars he will elevate his olfactory appendage a little bit higher ami inform the guvnor that Coloradolias no power to make such a treaty. There is considerahld discussion go ing on juat now concerning the upright system of peninauship, the advocates of the straight up and down stroke claim ing for it greater rapidity and legibility than that obtained iu the slant writing. If the upright system has these ad vantages it will meet with but little opposition. Manaokii Chubbuck is keeping his busiiiHT J eye on the opportunity afford ed by the new viaduct and will be likely to forestall the aspirations of the north Pueblo people interested in securing a street car line through Bes semer by applying for a franchise him Belf. Next summer will witness a new car line out Northern uvenue and to the luke, a much needed improvement. The board of county commissioners and Clerk Henderson are engaged in mapping out the mules and bounds of the new voting precincts to be establish ed. The law allows 250 voters to a precinct, but most all of the 27 pre cincts in the county now have their full quoto, and the addition of the women’s votes will cause a redtatrict ing There will be about 17 or 18 new precincts formed. Bessemor’s four precincts will he redistricted into at least 7. The Inevitable must come. Gov ernor Waite is determined to have the legislature convened In apecial session early In January. The old gentleman seems to hug the oelnsion that be has been “called" ns other cranks have been "called” before to do some thing strange and out of the regular order of things. It would not be strange if a serious atttempt were not made to impeach him for bis unjust removal of Warden McLister. If it could be done a litile good would come or a special session and Colorado’s good name would be vindicated. Goakknor Waite te receiving en couragement from all aide* on his counterfeit money schema. For In stance, a Missourian writes him that be will trade him mules for his Mexican dollars. A Coloradoan says the dollar la all right even If worth only seventy cents; "Let the banks and bend holders of the east,’’ he Writes, "bear a propor tionate share of the shrinkage of Color ado properties.” Another MndrerfM Cal fonts compliments the governor and outlines a burned sketch shewing how well Colored# oenld defend ttutf front an intwton of fedort* «rthffrh» ~**• Be*** ho MH|MEM iMM BESSEMER, COLORADO, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1893. The French government haa beeu thoroughly aroused by the horrible out rage iu the chamber of deputies, and it now looks as though the bomb that exploded with such fearful effect, wounding eighty people, Hounded a significant warning to anarchy at the same tune. The government is now debating measures whereby it will be a penal offense to utter or publish iu- Hatninable speeches teaching the doctriuc of outruge and murder; police are to have supervision of anarchist meetings, and the manufacture aud sale of explosives is to be controlled by the government, etc. The senti mental creatures who protest against such seemingly arbitrary action will find little spmpathy among all truly loyal and good citizens. Those citizens from Bessemer who are risking their homestead rights on the divide midway between this place and are enthusiastic in their venture ml couut on success. The strip *of country being so rapidly settled is from six to eight miles wide and from forty to fifty miles long, and those settlers who have farmed in it for a few years past maintain that it is the real rain belt of that region, With deep snows and late spring rains the soil is kept moist until late in the fall aud crops have been suc cessfully grown without irrigation. The strip is the true water-shed between the Platte and the Arkansas rivers where the mixing of the cool mountain air witli the warmer atmosphere of the low lands beyond precipitates plenty of moisture. Potatoes form the staple pro duction und arc growD with great suc cess. A brilliant financial writer solves the problem of hard times in a letter to the Rocky Mountain News in which he proposes to make money uon-iuterest bearing. He argues that •if it were made unlawful for banks to take in terest on deposits then people would not deposit their money but would in vest it in business instead, thereby creating employment for others and keeping the money in circulation. That is au easy line of reasoning from cause to effect. Just as if such a thing were possible. A law that would for bid banks to take interest must necessarily forbid Individuals to take interest, and in every instance the hardship would be upon the would-be borrower. And just as if, also, people ns a rule place money in a bank to draw interest. They deposit it for safe keep ing and convenience, bauks refusing to take money on interest except on time deposits and at about 4 per cent, and even then they will not alwuys take it. Not one depositor in ten ask for interest as they wish to leave their accounts open. The writer in the News must be a sand hill ooliticiau. At the Steelworks. All sorts of rumors are floating through the atmosphere concerning the starting up of the steel works. The greatest hope is based on blast furnace No. 2 which many think will be blown in about the Aral of the year. As "the wish is fattier to the thought,” more than usual credence is given to this re port but tbere seems to be no good grounds for believing it. Iu a conversation with W. L. Graham on the subject he stated that No. 2 would be blown in If orders for rails could be obtained. That the company was on the lookout for orders, and that while there were prospects of .work before long he was not aware that preparations were being made to start a furnace just yet. The bar mill is still pushing along, but there are no outward signs of a general stirring up of the works. A Bit of Information. For the information of an inquirer the Indicator will say that the em ployes of the Philadelphia smelter pay $1 per mouth each to the company’s physician for the sick fund. St. Mary’s Sanitarum is the smelter's hospital and the company physician attends all sick employes taken there and pettles all bills of the hospital on account of the patient. He is out nothing but tbe | fit a month. Aside from this each em ploye pays fifty cents per month to' the Guggenheim Bros who see to it that the employe is insured in a good com pany against all accidents. If he be laid up from the effects of injuries re oeived he draws half pay from the smelting company while eff duty. This ie a wise provision and has been a great benefit to many a man who has bad the misfortune to meet with an accident while at work in the smelter. He Will Grow Rich. “How much for a hair cut? in quired a comfortable looking, warm clad gentleman of n down town barber the other day as he dropped Into a chair. .

Valley Camp No. 29 Takes a Trip. A jolly crowd of a hundred Woodmen. Camp No. 29, with their wives or sweet hearts took a run up to Florence Tliurs day night to visit the kindred cainp and the people generally of that nourishing little city. The cittizens turned out enmasse to meet the visiting cainp at the depot and escort it to the church where an appropriate und interesting programme was rendered, the musical and literary talent of Florence bringing forth merited appluuse, the visiting camp assisting iu the exercises. The excursionists were then escorted to the town hull whore many of them ate the only supper they had seeu for twenty-four hours, and the best any of them had seen for a mouth. It was simply immense, the refreshing ride und the zest of. the entertainment sharpen ing the appetites of all, and joyously, uuy, anxiously did they pitcli in. The only incident to inar the most happy occasion was the over-much anxie ty, (some called it unbecoming raven ous) of Neighbors Hunt, Shircmuu Miller, Moses. Leonard and Collins of the visiting delegation, and for them all the other well behaved visitors ask the forbearance of the good people of Florence. The Indicator learned that Mcs dames J. A. Trulove, W. B. Winger, J. M. Harris. J. Oliver, A. It. May 11. N Moore, J. Walker, W. S. Kirk, t«. Clark, W. Maze and La Plant were in great part responisble for the splendid repast, aud to them and the numerous pretty girls who assisted in waiting on the tnblo No. 29 returns its everlustiug gratitude. A grand ball completed the festivities of the evening and the visitors came away loud iu their praise of the hospitable and lug heurted people of Florence, enthused with "that fellow feeling,” and vowing that the men were as manly, tbe matrons ns charming and the girls the most bewitching in all of Colorado's fair clime, and thanking one and all for the kindness exhibited on every hand. The ever acconnnodatihg Col. Alex. Jackson of the D. & It. is entitled to the thauks of the crowd for the splend id special train. Where the Police Come From. When Bishop Fullows was addressing a crowd of unemployed in Chicago recently he said: "The public officials are in sympathy with you; they have sprung from your owu ranks. Where did our policemen come from?” The bishop was not permitted to answer his own question; with one voice three or four hundred people yelled out, "From Ireland!" aud the laughter that followed was infectiouV aud even the bishop himself wus compelled to join in it. HOYT'S "A TRIP TO CHINATOWN." A big nu'Hencc laughed and ap f plauded for three hours at the bright l and snappy scenes of "A Trip to China town" at the Tabor Grand last evening. The show is a carnival of fun, and the l company is thoroughly cnpakle of do ing it justice. Anna Boyd i 9 a widow so p’quant, mishievous and attractive that it is a pleasure to watch her move ments. Harry Conor, as the man with one foot in the grave, and George A. Beam, jr., as the gay old bachelor, are : irresistibly funny. Harry Gilfnil, whose whistling buzz snw and comic battle specialties will be remembered. Lottie Mortimor, wbo has just joiued the No. 1 " Trip to Chinatown" company, tak ing Mamie Gilroy's place, plays the part of a ilirt with a dash and a piquancy that is quite refreshing. Julia Wbitmark, who was last seen in Denver with the "City Directory,” rendered solo specialties in the second and received many encores.

The epidemic is more severe than it was two years ago when it was so prevalent, and it is strange. too because of the warm pleasant weather prevailing. Iu speaking about the grip with Dr. Patterson a few days ago he remarked, "One peculiarity about the malady is that it is of no short duratiou, the patients either re covering in short order or dying sud denly. In many instancas people have died within a week, but they are mostly cases where the patient was weak or permitted the grip to get too strong a hold before procuring medical aid. I am now treating a number of cases of the grip hut fear no bad results for any of my patients.” The grip is attacking with greater virulence aged people. Infants, those exposed to the influence of malarial fever or inclined to have a waak heart. The epidemic la not local by any means, but is reported from all parts of tho country.
