THE INDICATOR P. BYRNEB, Editor and Proprietor. Published Every Saturday at Bemeiiier,Colo. Entered at the Pontofllce at Pueblo, Colo., an Mt-cond clom matter. Prick op Subscription. One Year 91 00 Six Months 60 Tuesday, April 3rd will be election day. The Independent labor horse is being lightly ridden by several political straddlers. "We met Bessemer and she is ours,” says the Chlefain. Those words are few but significant. Highlands, a suburb of Denver had an election on consolidation the 18th and defeated the proposition by a majority of 222 out of 768 votes Of course the Independent labor party is not an off-shoot of the pop ulist party, and yet seven of the nine nominees for alderman are of that persuasion. Bkhhkmer had to annex to some thing. Whether it was to Pueblo, Overton or the tail end a comet made no difference; anything would do just so it was to annex. Bkshemkh and Pueblo can not be said to have absolutely consolidated until the appeal case in the supreme court is settled. It is possible that there will be a revelation. The number of women who have registered and will be entitled to vote in the city election is about 3,500. This is a very important factor In politics and its advent is greatly feared by the saloon element. The Indicator pointed out the error of consolidation, opposed the measure, is proud of it and would do so again under the same circumstances. This for the benefit of the men who wielded the terrible ■ political club in this bailiwick election day. Bessemer will retain the name of Bessemer even though the supreme court does not sustain the case of ap peal to Bet aside the election of last Tuesday. It will always be called by that name to distinguish it from the rest of Pueblo, and hence the name of this paper shall remain as it is, Tue Bessemer Indicator. The civil war in Brazil is as good as over and the rebels are vanquished. It is difficult to tell which side was in the right, but on the whole the moral in fluencc of this country was on the side of the Peixoto government and will re main so if President Peixoto treats the fallen belligerants with clemency. If not the people of the United States will give him the shake. Well, the annex election is over and the "anti’s were ingloriously scooped. Mow that the thing is done let all pull together for the good of Bessemer as a suburb and make every effort for its success. The factional tights will, of course, go serenely on but there will come times when a pull together can be of much benefit to the community. Embrace all such opportunities. Consolidation will not be absolute until the legality of the election is settled in the courts. F. J. Downen, through his attorneys Waldron & Devine has appealed the case to the supreme court and a decision will be arrived at before the April election. John Waldron will take the matter up next week and will vigorously prose cute it, he hopes, to a successful end. It is noticeable that a north side ele ment have not yielded to defeat by any means, but have great expectations of winning their point. Stranger things have happened than the setting aside of the resnlt of the special election by the supreme court. Women’s Republican Club. A number of the women of Bes semer met at the Dempsey-Langdon hall Tueaday and organized a republican club of which Mrs. M. Marble was male president, Miss Alice Rickabangh secretary, Miss Mary Little correspond ing secretary, and Miss Alice Chase treasurer. The club has appointed a committee to solicit membership and will meet every Friday at sama place at 9:80 p. m. Consolidation Carries.

THE TRUTH OF IT. Political Rows Downed Bessemer at the Polls. Political animus was ut the bottom of the defeat of the auti-consolidntionista Tuesday last in Bessemer. Perhaps no other town in Colorado has been cursed with such a dog eat-dog political policy as has charsctcii/.cd the man'pulation of the affairs of the town for years. Selfishness, hate and revenge have al ways run rampant over the city and the outs wer3 ever on the alert to down the ins. No matter what party had con trol of the affairs of the town, it was the object of spite' ami scorn and denominated the gang, aud the cry was, the gang must go. The present council and city officials were no exception, and the council particularly came in for a vast amount of berating. Of the officers of the town there was not much said. But no matter how unjust the accusations, it can not be denied that the spite of de feated aspirants for political honors, the animus of those who were routed and the hate of almost the entire western portion of the town which was directed against the council, were the main factors which contributed to the defeat of the town. It was not the advantage which people expect to gain by annexation which caused them to vote as they did, for they must know in their hearts that uo advantage will be gained, but they were actuated largely by a desire to harm somebody, to throw a fire brand and let it burn whom it would. The nourishing suburbs of Denver, Highlands and Colfax, downed an nexation by big majorities because they feared the power of the large city. They eliminated their family rows from the conflict and voted for what they believed to be for the best interests of all concerned. Politics of the most rank and bitter quality had all to do with the election in Bessemer and the •‘city hall gang" had to go. It went. Dropped Their Feathers. It is a fact well known to close ob servers that many of the friends of anti-consolidation lay down at the laat moment and showed no fight at all. The sudden change was obvious at the polls, and the dodging was noticeable to Puebloites who came up to see how things were going. The Journal caught on and commented on their action as follows: "Friends of consolidation were do ing quiet but effective work, while for some reason some of those who had i radically opposed a union of the two cities up to a day or two ago, could not be found. Just what caused their sud den change of heart is not known, al though it is hinted that the leaders hav ing political aspirations feared the vengeance of the consolidationints in time to come should the opposition prevail." SHOULD BE RETAINED. Keep the Present Police Force on Duty. Now that a new order of things will be instituted on account of consolida tion it is opportune to say a word in behalf of the police force of the tewn and urge upon the council of Pueblo the desire of the people in this connec tion. Through the efforts of the police force more than to any ather cause can be attributed the freedom of the town from tramps, hold-ups, burglars, toughs and the like. The criminal record of the town is something of which every citizen can be proud. Quiet has pre vailed and there has been no loss by theft for a long time. Not a store has been tapped for over a year and a half, and much credit must be given the police. Marshal Shay does not aspire for recognition, but the four police, i e E. P. Price, Thomas James M. F. Dempsey and William Brennan would accept a re-appointment, and hot ouly would the favor be just but it would please a big majority of the people. They are conscientious, able officers and it is to be hoped that they will continue to wear the star. Look at This.

OmMmm of Patlaata ta a Pb/alolaa* Ability Oftoa Do«m«i Death. ••You may be surprised when I tell you that 1 believe In faith cures,” said a Pittsburg doctor. "1 don't belittle the faith or confidence that my patients have in me. It Is a great help in getting beneficial re sults from the administration of ined lolne. In fact, faith or confidence la requisite to accomplish great cures. It matters not whether it be faith in God, faith in the doctor, or faith in the medicine prescribed, the effect is just the same. I attribute my great success to the confidence which I seem to Inspire Into the people of a house as soon as I enter it. ••As an example of this, not long ago a patient of mine was visiting in C veland. She became very sick while there and beseeched her hus band to send forme. I received tel egram after telegram to come, and even had a special train offered me, but I did not think it would be proper to neglect my patients here, having a number of serious caBOB, for the length of time it would require me to go to Cleveland. After much so licitation, 1 finally agreed to go. Ar riving at Cleveland. I found that I had to go twelve miles into the sub urbs. where I was met at the station by the doctor in attendance, who had given tho patient up. I saw at once he was rattled, and talked over the case with him until 1 bad got to the house. There I was met by the sor rowing husband, with tears in his eyes, wringing his hands, and saying in a hushed, broken voice—, Oh, doc tor, you are too late. Bhe is nearly gone. If you had only come sooner, doctor, you could have saved my wife. She has not spoken for four hours, and is failing rapidly.” "I was ushered into the room where the patient lay and saw she was extremely low. I walked over to the bed and placed my hand upon her forehead. It was cold. The iciness of death could already be felt, but I did not lose heart. I turned to the crowd of sorrowing watchers and said: ‘Why, she’s not gone yet by any means. ’ I had hardiy uttered the words before the eyes of the patient slowiy opened, and looking up at me in a mournful way, she raised her hands and ex claimed in a dramatic manner, ‘Saved!’ It was not fifteen minutes before the pulse began to be stronger and the patient rapidly improved under the administration of medicine until the morning, when I was able to return to Pittsburg. "She is living yet. a strong, healthy woman. That woman had simply made up her mind that she was going to dlo unless I came on there. The Impression was so Intense that It had an actual effect upon her condition, and it la probable that the result would have been death had she not been able to expel the impression of death by the stringer suggestion of life which came when I arrived through her confidence in me.” Charlotte Corday’s Last Portrait. | A most interesting anecdote of Charlotte Corday has seen the light, apropos of the centenary of Marat’s execution. While Charlotte was on her trial she saw an artist sketching her portrait and she turned her face around so as to give him a better view. After her condemnation she gave him a sitting in the prison that he might finish his work, and when he had been thus engaged about two hours a tap was heard on the door and the executioners entered. The victim turned pale, but was Belf-pos sessed, and she cut off a long lock of hair with scissors and gave it to the artist, asking him at the same time to send a replica of her portrait to her family. This was done. The artist was a German named Hauer, and the story comes from his daugh ter-in-law, who is still living. The lock was afterward lost. The por trait hangs at Versaillea Simple Words the Best. The following little story is told sf a citizen of Port Chester, N. Y., whose education was somewhat su perior to his wife’s, a fact regarding whioh she was very sensitive. On one occasion the man drove over to White Plains to. inquire regarding the health of his sister-in-law, who was dangerously ill. Upon returning he was met by his wife, who asked of her sister’s condition. "She is convalescent,” replied the man. Immediately and in the most em phatic manner the woman cried out: “I want none of your soothing words, I want facts. You tell me this min ute, is my sister dead or alive?” Troubles of a Bishop. Liberal thinkers in the churches are having a mnch pleasanter time now than in the time of Bishop Col enso thirty years ago. After the bishop published hiß book showing that certain statements and figures in the Pentateuch were untrue he found himself almost universally ostracized. Men and women whom he had known intimately from ohild hood refused to speak to him. And so general was the detestation of him that his laundress in London re fused any longer to wash his clothes, because she lost customers by coming Into such close contact with him.
