Grover Cleveland stoops from his

On account of the extension of the
Midland railroad to within nine miles of
Cripple Creek the Santa Fe will get

The Inevitable must come. Gov

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

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
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.

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
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

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.
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

scenery used in the piece is from Hoyt's
Madison Square theater, and it is baud

I There are hundreds of cases of gup

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.
