One Year $1 00 Six Months 50 President Cleveland is killing bis party ms fast as tlic force of circum stances will permit. llis last aud most deadly blow was the vetoiug of the seigniorage hill. PopoCRACY is the curse of Colorado at this time and should not lie perpetuated, uot even countenanced in city elections It is a plain duty the people of this city owe to themselves to down every populist who aspires to office. Amono the twenty three criminals in Canon City who are sluted for a hearing before the board of pardons, next Mon day is Alfred Packer, the notorious man-eater. His excellency in the guber natorial chair should purdon Alfred aud use him on occasions instead of (railing out the militia. The Lanmr Sparks drop* a timely hint to a class of gullible newspapers as follows: -‘Snide advertisers, who arc rich in promises hut poor in their fulfill ment. are making the usual spring as sault on the newspapers, and they have succceeded in working several Colorado publishers who should know better." Tiik enterprise of Burt Hamilton, the Denver disciple of General Coxey is commendable aud the cause is worthy of the assistance of the public, for if the follower of Coxey succeeds in raisiug the 5,000 men or any part of the number he will bs ridding the state of juet so much undesirable humanity. Burt should be assisted. The fact that President Cleveland vetoed the Bland hill will buve its effect in the April municipal elections all over the country. Here in Pueblo democrats deem it a duty they owe to tboinselves and to Iheir neighbors to refuse to longer coutinue with their purty and will vote the republican ticket. And they are right. Tiik attack bciug made nil over the state against the populists in the pres ent campaign is not persecution. It is idleness to say that it is. It is simply an effort to nil the state of the ad vocates of a wicked and short sighted political policy that has brought odium on the people of the commonwealth and made them the laughing stock of the whole country, it is a contest wherein personal preferment must be sacrificed iu u great measure to the good of the state at large Pueblo can set a good example by indorsing the republicau ticket. The city of Pueblo and the county of Pueblo are going to join hands in the commendable purpose of damming Dry creek in order to prevent another disastrous llood like the one that del uged the central portion of the city lust summer. Dry creek is well named, for it is no creek at all, simply an •rroya extending through Irving Place, but on occasions of cloud Versts it sud denly becomes a roaring river, irre sistible aud daugerous. That Injunction. The constitutionality of the consoli dation election of Bessemer and Pueblo was argued iu the supreme court last Monday, .John Waldron appearing for T. J. Dowen, the uppellant, and City Attorney Nicholas and Betts & Vates acting for the defense. The court took the matter under advisement and will hand down a decision to-day. It is within the scope of probabilities that Waldron will wiu the case, and if the unexpected should happen what a mighty flutter there would be in political (|uarters iu these bailiwicks. AFTER CONGRESSMAN BELL. Some Advice to the Steel Workers. A few weeks ago the workingmen at the steel work* of this city sent a monster petttion to Representative Bell, the demo-pop congressman from this district, asking him to vote against the ruinous Wilson bill; they did this that tfiev might not be forced to accept the Euglisb scale of wages which must follow in case that bill becomes a law. They also expected that he would at least stand by the people he is. un fortunately, representing, and that a matter of such vital importance to so many thousands of people in his district would ne heeded. But he ignored the appeal to vote against the Wilson bill and openly insulted every signer of that petition when he deliberately voted for it. Can the workingmen of the steel works let this insult go by un rebuked? This spring’s election will be the first chance that they can get a whack at htm and his party, but a crashing defeat to his party will be a warning of what he can expact next MU. U 4 rt. dim* pop oMrtrti «* ***•*-*—» I BESSEMER, COLORADO, SATURDAY, MARCH 31,1894. A SURE WINNER. EVERYTHING POINTS TO THAT! END. The hated combine Democrats don’t like it, populists don't like it, nobody likes it -The men who made it don’t like it—A review of the city election of April 4, 1H93, and its bearing on the present contest. The republican party is cemented firmly and held together not only by reason of a Hlroug desire to down pop ulism but also from the fact that the democrats have joined hands witli the third party aud the combine is made to knock the re puhlicaus out for uext fall us well as for this spring. There is a great deal at stake, and us opposition begets op position. the republicans ure going into the campaign with the vim and earnestness that an army would evince in entering into the defense of a strong hold against an enemy. If the result of the city election of one year ago could be taken as a criterion there would be grave ap prehensions felt for the party now in power, but there rre redeeming features which more than offset the seeming discrepeucics of the election of April 4, 18ft3. The official return* of that election show that the combined vote of Royal and Utter, the democratic and .populist candidates, was 1,805, Royal having received 869 votes uud Utter 936 votes, while Strait received 1323 votes, or 482 less thun the combined vote of his two opponents. There would not be much encouragement iu these figures if the fusionista would stand tlrm and could depend upon their ipioto of the women's vote, but they will uot hold their own in either instance. It is not too much to conjecture that at least one third of the democrats will vote with the republicans: the signs of the times indicate it and any one who has mixed in politics to any exteut will hear out the assertion. A deflection of one third of the democrats would of itself chuugc the result and there will be a tremendous falling off because the mixed ticket is devoid of principle and many good democrats detest it. Nor is the dislike couflned to demo crats alone. There are a great many middle-of-the-road populists who are deeply chagrined at having been led out of the straght path übd who de clare that a victory won by the com bine would be empty of honors to them as they have been shorn of their ideutity as a party and the democrats would claim all the glory; so there is sore distress in the populist camp and it is certain beyond a reasonable doubt that many au erstwhile republican will return to his old standard in the present conflict. The vote cast at the election last spriug. 3,128 will be greatly augmented, of course, by the addition of the new political factor, but it is ouly fair to presume that the sume causes aud the same prejudices which will influence the men will govern them to a very large exteut at least. A ‘‘fellow feel ing” with their male kindred will most assuredly be a marked char acteristic of the vote. The vote of the city will he still in creased and in a more marked degree by the addition of the voice of Bes semer being added by reason of an nexation. But Bessemer is republican. It is naturally so aud will assuredly stand ib the republican ranks this time. True, Dempsey was elected mayor one year ago 011 the democratic ticket over his competitors, Colvin on the republican and Williams ou the populist ticket, but that proves nothing more than the fact that the republicans were all split up in one of their periodical rows as they usually are in a home affair; but now they are voting in Pueblo and there is a Arm resolve on eyery hand to wheel into line and vote it straigbt.- Political Pointers. Cbairman Drake makes an efficient and popular chairman. Notwithstanding the uspersions of the Press, T. It. Jones numbers lots of frieDds among all classes of people of the city aud believes he is hut doing his duty in working for the success of the republican party. The fact that he is so closely identified with the labor unions, he says, has nothing to do in the case. Cash Henderson is- one of the most sanguine men in town as regards the success of his party, he having made a bet to the effect that the lowest candidate on the republican ticket will receive 500 more votes than the highest candidate ou the fusion ticket. Each qualified elector will vote for one candidste for alderman from each of the seven wards in Pueblo and for two candidates in tie eighth ward, comprising what was Bessemer. Judge Collins is just now sought after by the ladies, he having gained mack favor among them as being aa eloquent and instructive political orator. Tho republicans of Pueblo never |«M«trt K> MMk kMHqli former city election ad that which marks the present campaign. Their greatest deure is to keep down the populists ami they will succeed It ia estimated that fully 80 per cent of the women of Pueblo who go to the polls will vote the republican ticket The independent labor party which sprung up so gaily only two moon* ago and which was to cut such a wide swath in city affairs was ignominiously swallowed up bj the combine, ae it was originally intended it should be by the wily schemers who organized it. Those who went into the thing with au honest motive are now mukiug a just rsar. A few well known populist voices which were rnmpaut lust fall are strangely silent now. Not once have they been raised in behalf of the dear people. Experience is a dear teacher. Bessemer will whoop up a big ma jority for the republicau ticket. “U. \V. GV has a good letter in this issue of the Indicator which will re pay a careful perusal. The women of Pueblo will deal the liquor element a hard blow in this elec tion. No wonder the saloons fought bnrd against their franchise. A certain democrat was hauled over the coals at the fusiou meeting in the city hall Thursday night for saying he intended to support almost the entire republican ticket, and will be read out of the party. On the sume charge there will be many a democrat aud populist read out of the parly. Grover Cleveland has manufactured lots of repuhlicaus votes iu Pueblo. The Republican Candidates. J. M. Woodard from tbe Ist has been a resident of Pueblo for twelve years and this is the first time he lias ever run for office. He is engaged in the limestone business and has the name of beiug a good business man and a good citizen. Frank P. Lauuon from the 2nd is the proprietor of the Launou foundry now being rebuilt after the loss by the a year ngo. He carried his ward against great oppoaitiou aud ia one of tbe most active men on the ticket. W. A. Bryson who represents the 3rd is the popular manager of Hughes Bros, lumber yard and a member of the present city council. Harvey Birch is also a member of tbe city council and is certain to be his own successor from the 4th. He is engaged iu the livery business and has an extensive and favorable acquaintance John F. Bishop wha aspire* lor elec tion from the sth i'b au architect by profession and for the time will direct his skill into the political channel and build his way into office. He is a worthy young man und would make an excellent alderman. O. H. Wheeler is making the race from the 6th. He is a clerk iu the Wicks shoe store und has the best of assurance of election. Alex McGregor from the 7th is au employe of the D. Jc R. G. is popular among railroad men as well as the public in general and is sure of election. M. Williams aud R. J. Bruner arc both makiug the race ou the same ticket from the Bth, the Bessemer ward, there being two aldermen to elect. Mr. Williams is a man of uu usual capabilities for the office aud made a splendid record as county com missioner. He is a man of much ex perieuce aud has made a large eircle of acquaintances iu his real estate and insurance business. R. J. Bruner has served a term a* alderman and his friends claim can win the race ou the record he made. He is a very pleasant geDtlcman and ia at present eugaged in the real estate business. Ask for Pardons. N. Tucker aud Joe Whits for larceny, aud Lem Smith for perjury, ail of Pueblo county, ate among the convicts at Canon City who will appeal to the hoard of pardons for freedom. Indian Joe who is under sentence of death for murder will appeal through his attorneys to the governor to have the sentence commuted to imprisou nient for life. Excites Pity. The significance of the hard times can be well understood by those who have occasion to witness the sad sight which presents itself at the gates of the steel wotks almost daily. Not in frequently from 100 to 200 men as semble at the gates before sunrise anxiously watching for an opportunity to go to work, ami will stand there for perhaps three hours while hope dwindles away. The anxiety of mind and the exposure they endure is actual hard ship, and yet they willingly take their chances to be called to work, knowing that if they get a job they must labor twelve hours and receive only from $1.30 to $1.40 a day. These men know what it means to be without a cent. A petition signed by all the rosidenU of block 49, being the block jut east of the city hall, will be presented to the mayor aad city oounctl praying than to ■ot issue licsnae granting the salt of intoxicating tat said block.
