One Year si 00 Hl* Mouths 50 The Indicator wishes all its readers a Happy New Ysar. Governor Waite’s birthday may yet be a legal holiday in Colorado. The fact that the Santa Fo has gone into the hands of a receiver will not hinder tlic completion of the Midland terminal into Cripple Creek Gkadino has begun on the Florence and Cripple Creek railroad, a few miles of track has been laid, and the blasting of rock will soon begin. The timely suggestion has been made that you put u little mucilage under that ucw leaf you turn down New Year's to keep it turned. Lamar uimrods to the number offlfty killed 1,799 jack rabbits on the 22 inst which they geuerously donated to Pueblo and Denver as a Christmas gift, and the Bauta Fe railroad as generous ly hauled the rabbits free of all charges. There is a lack of stayiug qualities in the make up of too many of those who resolve on New Year s day and the wreck and ruin of broken pledges uiid unredeemed promises remind one of what a happy change there might have been if. "Bi.eedino Kansas” Is having another hemorrhage. This time the state is reaping the fruits of Governor Lewelling's tramp circular and the laz/.aroni arc crowding into the big towns from all quarters seeking the protection of the metropolitan police boards. Another unfair companion between the East and the West is instanced in the effort of the editors of the North Americun Review to secure letters on “tramps” from Governor Flower of New York, Russell of Massachusetts, Lewelling of Kansas and Waite of Colorado But the West has one thing to be thankful for—the editors overlook ed Governor Pounoyer of Otegon. Judoe Jenkens of Milwaukee made a strange decision at the instance of the receivers of the Northern Pacific R. R. when he denied the employes the right of “combining or conspiring to quit the service of the road with or without notice.” Wonder if he would deny the railroad the right to discharge the em ployes singly, by the job lot or all together “with or without notice" when there was no contract. French anarchists made another bold stroke in the name of liberty and equality last Tuesday when they ran riot iu one ot the principal streets of Orleans, Pinashiug windows, street lamps, ami the like aud yelling “Long live anarchy.” The wonder is that France has not realized ere this the right of the reds to murder, burn, pillage aud destroy and accede to their demands. Those people should be emancipated. Governor Waite suggests in his call that the first business of the legislature should be to provide that all silver dollars, domestic and foreign, contain ing not less than 871 \ grains fine shall be legal tender for all debts collectible in Colorado. He would have an act passed forbidding the obligations of mortgages, trust deeds or any other kind of documents to bo made pay able in gold. Among many other things he wants laws to provide for the revision of the constitution; to build Twin Lakes reservoir; to limit interest on judgments to 0 per cent; to create a new county out of the western half of E! Paso, the Cripple Creek dis trict; to amend the homestead laws; to provide for an additional judge and clerk In the fourth district; to do away with the contract system in public works; to prevent irrigating compamea from collecting more than one-third of the charge for water in advance of de livering the water; an eight-hour law; a law agalst usury; to amend the at tacbmend laws, to make all trust deeds contracted in future mortgages with redemption privilege; to make chattel mortgages subject to foreclosure only upon notice and according to the pro cedure In courts of equity; to prohibit child labor and the “sweating system;” to prevent trusts from monopolising the coal supply, and to regulate the weigh lag of coal; to amend the garnishee tows; to create non-partisan boards of election and provide for the registration of all womea entitled to vote; to pro vide for the appointment of a mle bank superintendent.

RIGHT ON DECK. It to Bessemer vs the BulleM. A special meeting, an all round dis cussion and an agreement to dis agxee—The demurrage to be held by the town— All ready for the courts. All members of the council with Mayor Dempsey and Attorney Lennard were on hand Wednesday night to con fer with the Bullcn Bridge Co. i. special session regarding the penalty due the city for over time in the con struction of the viaduct. Manager J. A. Bullcn was the solitary representative of the company and i great was the disappointment when it was seen that bis attorney was not in attendance, for it was understood that John Waldron was to be there to bluff the council; but Mr. Waldron didn’t come. If he had he would have run against a very solid and very sub stantial body of men who knew their duty ami were determined to do it. On motion of Aid. Jackson the minutes of the previous meeting were dispensed with and Mayor Dempsev opened the ball by saying that the council was at the pleasure of Mr. Bullcn and would listen to what he had to say. Mr. Bullen was evidently discon certed. he being unassisted by any one, and us the discussion grew hot it re minded one of a dog and badger picnic. He stuted that he had consulted an .attorney and was actiug entirely on his advice. He believed that the council’s sole oljcction to the viaduct was delay iu its construction, and the question was. were they (the Bridge Co) justified in the delay? He was sure they were; had they not the best of reasons for not having finished the structure on time they would have conic before the council and asked for an extsenion of time; but no. they were acting in good faith and had used due diligence; he had made two trips to Chicago on purpose to see about material. They were behind to some little extent (51 days) but he hoped the council would see the justice of paying up in full since the delays were unavoidable and he could show bow the material was sidetracked in its transportation. The city, he maintained, was to have put in the substructure and they were de layed by waiting for it. If the city was to be contrary he would charge it up with twelve extra piles. Even if the case went to the court the town would have to prove how much it was damaged. Attorney Lennard took exception to this and said that he would differ from Mr. Bulled. The town would be gov erned by the terms of the contract. Aid. Fisher denied that the town was to put in the piles and called for the reading of the contract. Clerk Jolinstou read contract which stated plainly enough that the Bridge Co. was to furnish ull piles, the aprous, etc. Aid. Martin inquired if there were not only four piles in the middle at either end, the other two being posts, and Mr. Bullen Baid yes. Aid. Jackson said the council was governed by the contract and did not have to place a sub structure. To this Mr. Bullen replied. “Gentlemen, you are so badly mistaken you havn't got a leg to stand on. We had nothing to do with the sub-structure.” Aid. Jackßon argued bis point from tho contract while being frequently in terrupted by Mr. Bullen with such re marks as “No use to argue this,” “The courts will settle the matter,” etc. Aid. Leithead assisted Jackson aud said the Bridge Co had to put in the sub structure for its owu convenience. There was an all ronnd fusillade at this point in which all the aldermen had something to say. Mr. Bullcn declared excitedly that the thing would go to tho court and that the town would be knocked higher than Gilroy’s kite. “Why,” he ex claimed, “I am surprised at you gentle men. John Waldron looks at this question iu a different light altogether from what yon do." To which queer and undeniable assertion Attorney Leo nard remarked with a twinkle of fun in his eye, “Well, don’t you pay John Waldron for such advice?” and then everybody smiled. Aid. Kirk said that the council held the special meeting to give the Bullens a chance to show why they had not completed the viaduct on time, and they bad offered no good reasons; therefore the former action of the council In withholding demurrage was all right. Mayor Dempoey suggested that the council accept the viaduct and tender tho Bullen Bridge Co. the difference between the demur rage and the amount yet claimed by the company under the contract, ft. 500. This was incorporated into a motion by Aid. Kirk and the penalty question referred to oommittee on public works, the mayor and attorney, and to bring in a report at nsxt council meeting. Carried. Mr. Ballon left the room saying that the question would be placed in the band* of hia attorney before the next meeting of the council, However, the eennoil tsnYto be frightened and will ■ stand by tbe beet Internets of the town. , They nie on tun of the Bullen Bridge On. end into** to May Own. Tta'■■«**■: WvfrMMiMi tKm am wum^nn^ae^msto DOWN GO THE WAGES <jr- • ■ AVlia CUT AT THR hTHEL WORKS. gjiperintsnt T. W. Rj linson again after f ) the men—This tf *it is the ton 'j nage men—Emp yen to decide to j Supt. Robinson hi again after the men, and last Wednesday called a meet ing of the tonnage men at his office. He then informed them that the price of labor must be reduced in order to meet Eastern competition; that since the cut in the price of rails bus been set at $25 per ton at Chicugo for 1894, he Bessemer works would have to meet it and to do this a scale based on S2O lo.'a must be made. He then sub mitted to thCul Tiai.of prices bearing upon different departments and named Saturday (to day) as the date for an answer. Uuder the scale Mr. Robinson makeß the basis of production at 173 tons per 12 hours instead of the customary 100 tons, bolding that with the new im provements 175 tons can be produced with the same labor as 100 tons were formerly. as an example of the reduction made the beaters that formerly got $8 per 100 tons will now get $7.05 for 175 tons; the helpers who got $4 50 for 100 tons will now get $3.15 for 175 tons, und chargers who got $2.80 will now get $1.95 on the 175 ton basis. \v here formerly double price was paid for baudluig cold steel one and one half price Will now be paid, and so on through a long list of reductions. It is a sort of specific ad valoruiu arrange ment of prices where the cash is re duced aud the bulk increased. Mr. Robiuson claims that even nt the revised scale which is to go into effect at once the Bessemer mills will be pay ing better wages than are now being paid in the Chicago district. What seems to be the fallacy of the argu ment, however, is the assumption that 175 tons can now be handled as quickly as lUO tons formerly were. If this were true the reduction would be only from 10 to 30 per cent where now it will actually be anywhere from 40 to 52 percent unless the increased rate of production can he realized. Of course there is much dissatisfac tion. The chances are that the men will present a scale ot their own to-day aud they should be liberally dealt with. Let Mr. Robinson do the reasonable thing in the matter and the mills will soon be naming. The man realize the situation and are willing to meet the reduction in the price of rails by ac cepting a reasonable cut. ARE HAVING A SCRAP. Trouble Between the Santa Fe and the Rto Grande at the Philadel phia Smeltsr. A war between these two giants is geiug on at the Philadelphia smelter and business iu that institution is being badly crippled, a number of men having already been let out because ore can not be gotten to the smelter, aud unless a truce is patched up the works will have to stop temporarily. The facts in brief are as follows: The Santa Fe does not reucb the smelter by about 450 feet and bad been using that portion of the I). &R. G. track. Early thiß week the D. & R. G. took a notion to make tbo rival company pay fifty cents for each trip a ear made over the track. The Santa Fe refused to pay the toll, and hence it has over 200 car loads of ore, mostly from Creedc, standing out on the end of its line, and to gel it to the smelter it looks as if it must pay the toll or get the right of wuy and lay a track of its own. It is an unfortunate dispute as it injures not only the partiepants but the work men iu the smelter aud the smelting company itself, making a general stagnation of business. Disastrous Fire. At 10 o’clock Tuesday night the grocery store of Miller A Williamson at the corner of Summit anil Routt was discovered to be on fire and in spite of the united efforts of Hose companies 1 and 2 a groat deal of damage was done. The I. O. O. F. was bolding a meeting overhead at the time and the heat from below causing the organ to play attracted the attention of the members who located the blaze and made a hasty retreat from the room. The fire boys arrived on the scene as quickly as possible, aud although the interior of the store room, the shelves and counters were ablaze, succeeded in putting out the fire before aDy damage was done the building. The fire is supposed to have originated from a fallen stove pipe, tho hot soot igniting some matches and paper under the counter. Undoubtedly the corrugated iron ceiling saved the building. Messrs. Miller and Williamson place their loss at SI,OOO which is fully covered by the insurance. Them will be a novel battle along the coast of Brazil one of these days when the governmeat flotilla armed with torpedoes and dynamite bombs meet the two big ironclad war ships of the insurgents. It will be a repetition of the famous fight la the late civil war Between the Merrlanc and the Monitor when the aotton little -tub’ ooaqueted the clamey oig ship.
