Colo. Entered at the PoatofBoe at Pueblo, Colo., a* aecond olaas matter. Prick of Subscription. One Year SI 00 Six Months 60 Bessemer sod Pueblo combine to make the soundest and best city in the west to-day. The year 1824 opens up auspiciously for Colorado in spite of the obstacle in the gubernatorial chair. Sentence of death was passed on Vail lisnt, the French anarchist Wednesday. He and Prendergast will go the same route at about the same time. The Pueblo Journal is rapidly gain ing in public favor as it continues to improve. There is an open field and a bright future for the Journal. It is s cold day for Jacksonville. Florida wheu the newspaper reporters and sports of that city don't get out some new sensation about the Corbett- Mitchell fight. From present indications it looks as though Grover Cleveland would have as hard a time in getting the Wilson tariff bill passed as he had in killing the Shsrmau silver act. Florence is already experiencing a boom in real estate asd a general re vival in business as the direct result of the new railroad being bull*, into the great gold camp at Cripple Creek. Chicago has had another great fire. The conflagration came Monday night and destroyed a million dollars worth of the Fair property, reminding the Chicagoans of the terrible fire of 1871. With the right kind of enterprise Pueblo business men should capture the bulk of Cripple Creek mercantile trade. Bee what will happen wheu the Florence and Cripple Creek railroad is completed. Jox Newman, a talented young man from Denver, was with the Patti Rosa company in Pueblo this week and made a good hit with his origins! new songs. Denver is bound to sing her own songs everywhere. Lamar is having ita second jack rabbit hunt to-day and the sports are having a great time. The jacks will be shipped to Pueblo and Denver as be fore for free distrltp»»*»n, the Santa Fe again doing the generous thing by freighting free of charge. The Santa Fe people are determined to get into Cripple Creek aa soon as their rivals on the F. A C. C. road. Tbs Santa Fs has a short cut ef eight miles to make through the mountains from the half-way station, but much blasting and heavy rock work must be done. Blatherskite Funderburg who mis represents his district has put himself on record as being in favor of the extra session “if enly to rebnke the news papers for the injury they had done the state." The alfalfa statesman has a large sized wheel in his. head end is “My man Friday" to old man Waits. Some day the capital ef the United States may fall in line with the famous saying that "Westward the course of empire takes its way," and when it does come it will be when Chicago opens its purse strings as it did In capturing the Werld’s Fair. Next after Bessemer Chicago would be the best place for it. Tee Indicator is greatly disappoint ed in not being able to inform its read ers that the state assembly has adjourn ~ ’ *ne die. It Is still in session though the senate has manfully rejected the vis onary schemes ot Waite and declarrs it will adjourn. This win block the work of the lower house even should that body persist in chasing the state ditch delusion. Go home, gentlemen.

BESSEMER, COLORADO, SATURDAY, JANUARY 13,1894. ANOTHER BIG ORDER THIS TIME IT IS 15,000 TONS. The Union Pacific again places a large order—The aggregate of ton nage amounts to 46,000 Work for at least a half year. The Indicator learns from no less reliable authority than Agent A. 8. Cuthbertson of the Union Pacific that that road has again placed a big order for fifteen thousand tons of steel rails with tbs steel works, the head officials of the C. F. A I. Co. in Denver being now iu possession of the order. The Union Pacific is doing nobly by the steel works, and Bessemer ewes that big system s debt of gratitude. Of the last fifteen thousand ton order. 8,000 tons will be used by the Chicago A North Western, but through the in fluence of the U. P. officials that road was iaduccd to place its order with the Bessemer mills. The original order of 26,000 tons actually means 28,000, al lowing for 2,000 tons waste, which added to the last order amounts to 48. 000 tons which the U. P. has given to the steel works. Figuring in the 3,000 tons fortho Cripple Creek and Florence road, there are now 46.000 tons of steel rails in sight which will require the constant running of the works for at least six months double turn. There is encouragement in this for the con templation of everybody, and while it is to be greatly regretted that the wageß have been so reduced, yet the continuous running of the steel works will be a big thing for the town, and thanks are due the Union Pacific. ROBBING PETER TO PAY PAUL. THIS is peter. Mr. Carnegie has made the following reductions in the 110 Inch plate mill at Homestead*. Roller, from $12.75 per 100 tons to $6; screw-down, from $0.75 to $3.70; tableman, from $6.96 to $3.20; hooker, from $6.08 to $2*75; sweeper, from $3.45 te $2.27; heater, from $0.75 to $5.25. In the armor plate mill, the reduction is said to average 40 per cent in the case of the high-priced men, and to be very slight to all whose wages are already low. In his Pittsburg mill in which structural, bar and plate work is turned out the roughen, catchen, hoeken, straightener, pull-around and othen who used to make from $2.50 to $5.00 a day working on a tonnage basis have been placed on the straight day list at $2.50. while in atil! another mill the reduction amounts to about 89 per cent. this is PAUL. And this interesting sketch selected from the Iron Trade Review illustrates Paul. "Mr. Andrew Carnegie sailed this week, on the Olympia, for Egypt, a sea voyage having been prescribed for him' as the remedy for an attack of grip. Last week Mr. Carnegie wrote a letter to Mr. Pitcairn, of the Pittsburg com mittee for the relief of the unemployed, offering to duplicate all contributions to the fund, up to $,5,000 a day for every working day iu the ensuing two months. The Pittsburg fund is now something over $60,000. Of the policy followed by the Carnegie Steel Co. in the past two months, Mr. Carnegie said: "The Carnegie Steel Co. has pursued the policy of taking every order to be had, North, East, South and West, regardless of prices. Mr. Hewitt said the other day he had received for work on the Arnold-Constable building, in New York, SIO,OOO less than the cost price. Nevertheless, the company teok the contract, thus enabling the mills to run during the winter. The workmen will thus be enabled at least to earn sufficient money to maintain them during the hard months. I hope that the rail mill will be run in full with all hands." ’ Beautiful Humor. The following extract from an editorial in a Pueblo newepaper, while written in all eeriouenees con tains a bit of humor calculated to make the reader smile. At the same time it ie a slam on Pueblo people and sets them down as wonderful beer guzslers, suggesting that instead of being called the Pittsburg of the West Pueblo should be called the Milwaukee of the West. Roundiag up the people fordriaking the imported product the paper says*. "Did you ever hear of a Denver sa loon offering to sell a glass of Pusblo beer? Not much. But then are a number of Pueblo saloon keepers who eell the hog wash brewed in Denver in preference to the pure and better article manufactured at home. This ie not good citizenship. Pueblo will not grow and prosper aa long as tssls con dition of affair* exist. Denver men while in Pueblo will walk two or three blocks for Denver beer and will not drink nny other product. If Pueblo boor drinkers would do this it would not bo long before the Pueblo brewery would be the largest establishment of the kind went of St. Louie." Look at This.

The canning factory—Two gentlemen from New York —Working the bonus racket, that’s all Looks like humor. The two canning factory men from Gotham, C. A. Twitchell and A. Chisholm who came here to bunco Pueblo out of the trifling bonus of S7O. 000 with which to start that much talked of canning factory have gone back to the great metropolis awaiting the answer of the Board of Trade to their offer. In substance they will agree to buy SIO,OOO worth of ma cbinery and invest the same amount in tin cans in which te stow away tire green corn, tomatoes and peas of this county If Pueblo suckers will give a bonus of 1,000 acres under the Bes semer ditch valued at $50,000, a build ing and site for their tin can institution valued at SIO,OOO and SIO,OOO in cash. In return for this the two enterpris ing. or rather "too” enterprising men from New York would agree to have the machinery made iu the Bessemer steel works and emoley a score or so of people here to run the canuiug apparatus. As well might the steel works think of manufacturing the tin cans, and as for the people to be em ployed, they must be experts at the business, and as a matter of course would come from some other canning institution if the thing ever started up at all. Now, if these men haven't got the un adulterated article usually denominated gall, what is it? If the citizens of Pueblo county are to buy a thousand acre tract of land for the raising of corn, and tomatoes, and peas and build a factory for preserving these articles, why shouldn’t they run the institution themselves instead of making a present of it to the Knickerbockers? Those chapß are tenderfeet and are entirely out of their element in this high altitude; suckers don’t thrive here. Wonder if Mr. C. A. Twitchell isn't the "Charley Twitchell" who staged it through here as the side partner of of James J. Corbett? HELD A CONFERENCE. The Bullen Bridge Co. and the Public Works Committee. On the request of the Bullen Bridge Co. the Bessemer public works com mittee and attorney met in conference last Monday witk Manager J. A. Bullen and a representative of the American Bridge Co. for tke discussion of the viaduct penalty. Mr. Bullen proved te his own satisfaction that he was justified in the delay and wanted his money. The committee will submit a full report of the action taken to the council next Wednesday evening. In this connection it may not be out of order to at ate that the question is entirely out of the hands of the public works committee so far as taking any official action is concerned, and Mr. Bullen might as well understand that when he has anything to say on the subject he should address himself to the council. Let the council stand by its decision and hold on to the de murrage, standing a law suit if nec essary. The town Is on top. It must stay there. Waite and His Echo. Waite—" Hear ye, hear ye, my hench men, assemble in session extra for the state machinery is plumb off.” Echo—" Come off.” W—"A little of my all knowing wisdom that the wheels go sure ahead."

Let Uncle Bam rave; we can hide in the ditch and hold it against all hades. Will ye stay with me or go homo?" E—"Go home!" Tnet Case Thrown out on a Flaw. Owing to a technicality the teat case concerning the compulsory weighing of coal in Pueblo which was beard in Judge Mitchell's court waa not tested at all. The judge held that the in. formation against H. L. Warren was defective and had not established the fact that he had been guilty of an offence, hence he would discharge the prisoner. The attorney for the defence will In all likelihood be retained to try another case as the coal dealer* of the neighboring city are determined to test the constitutionality of a law compelling them to weigh coal on the city ecalea unless the customer says so. In most instances the people would be satisfied to trust the coal dealers aad savs ten cents for weighing. Howard, 115 Wost 4th street, makes the best photes in the West.

She comes with the famous "Cleopatra,” a play iu which she has made the greatest success of her life, which means s great deal. The opening performance will take place Vvednesday evening next at the Grand opera house and it is safe to predict that hers, as elsewhere since she has put the new "Cleopatra” upoa the stage, she will pack the opera bouse to the very doors. On her opening night in Boston she was called before tbs curtain no lass than fourteen times at the close of the fifth act. The entire original com pany will be seen hare, with the new scenery, costumes and accourt remeats complete, even to the real live baby anacondas. It would be useless to add to what has already been said of "Cleopatra,” and as for Miss Daven port and her talented leading man, Melbourne MacDowell, Pueblo will not be entdone by other citiee in giving them a hearty welcome on Wednesday evening.
