success in the new field.
One of the very best evidences of the
stability of Pueblo as a city is seen in
the fact that in spite of the cry of hard
times and in spite of the scarcity of
money, real estate holds at a good stiff
price and thero are no “snaps" ts be
bad. Property holds firm which is a
very healthful sign.
If the invading hosts of Coxey's
army now pounding the earth in these
parts could only rise in the air, and
drifting eastward like a clsud of
locusts, manage to alight somewhere
east of the Hoosicr state, the army
would be where It most properly be
longs, and the pestitence would be a
just retribution on the goldbugs who
are largely responsible for its existence.
The prohibitionists of Pueblo who
have been keeping on the shady side of

How strunge that capital aud labor
don't come to an understanding. The
coal miners of Colorado, for instance,
displeased with the average wages re
ceived, are now going out on a big
strike one week from to-day, and the
result will be that there is every oppor
tunity for the rail roads, the smelters
and the manufactures to be tied up,
thg thousands of other laboring men
out of employment and crippling the
corporations. Both sides will lose by
the strike.
State Coal Mine Inspector Reed in
dorses the geueral strike among the
coal miners of Colorado on the 21 Inst,
and thinks the strike will benefit the
mine owners ns well as the miners for
the alleged reason that the rail roads
are robbing both sides, and by a general
Bhut down will have to come to terms.
There are 8,000 coal miners in the
state, nine-tenths of whom are foreign
ers, and all excepting a few Mexicans
will go out. The strike will be gigantic
in proportions as it embraces every
state iu the Union, and it is not pleasant
to contemplate the result.
In spite of the threatening clouds that
overhang the manufacturing industries
of the country on account of the Wil
son tariff bill, capital is daily seeking
investment in that line, *the projectors
of the various enterprises evidently re
garding the scare as a big bugaboo.
For the first week in April alone fifteen
new manufacturing corporations enter
ed the field, the capital stock ranging
from SIO,OOO up, the aggregate amount
ing to $1,100,000. These new com
panies are for the moßt pari confined to
the east, and the business to be en
gaged in is various. Manufacturing
will go on without a tariff.

A Departure in Type Setting.
Certain periodicals devoted
exclusively to printing and all that
pertains to the art are now engaged in
the interesting discussion of a better
method of justifying type in the lines
of ordinary newspaper work. Instead
of spacing between the words and
breaking words at the end of a line,
advocates of the new method propose
to break no words at the end of a line,
but to quad out a short line, and have
no extra spacing between words. It is
claimed that by so doing a typo can set
40 per ceut more type, thus making a
big saving, for it is well known that
often the spacing of a line takes more
time than the setting of it
By following this method it will be
seen that the right hand margin of the
column will have a ragged though
withal a pleasing appearance not
unlike blank verse; the worda would be
evenly spaced, there being no crowding
and no unseemly stringing out, and it
would not be sarpiising If the new plan
did not become popular. There would
bn more space consumed In n given
artloie/lt la true, which would preve to
be a drawback, but thin defect would

It wan Sidetracked and Will not Ap
pear again.
A petition with thirly-oue signatures
was read at the meeting of the city
council Monday night asking that
Evans avenue from Washington street
to Northern avenue be declared a busi
ness street.
Home of the petitioners are residents
of the street and some are not, but that
makes no difference as the petition was
not considered at all, nor will it be for
the very good reason that the city
council has no authority to declare any
street a business street, hence the
petition will not be heard from again.
A street can be made one of business
only when a majority of the buildings
in all of a block are used for business
purposes, aud in this instance there are
ouly four business houses on Evans
avenue in its entire length covered by
the petition.
Mayor Strait stated that in bis
opinion the object was to pave the way
for opening up a saloou, in which he
was manifestly correct, but it is only
just to some of the petitioners to say
that they were not acquainted with
this fact when they signed the queer
document, nor were they posted on the
limited powers of the council in the
premises. If a saloon license be grant
ed to any one to do business in block
40 or any other block in Bessemer for
that matter, it will be only after a
compliance with the requirements of
the city ordinance relating to saloons in
residence portions, when application
must be made in the regular manner to.
the council. Regarding this the ordi
nance declares:
Huch applications in all cases where
the majority of the buildings in the
block iu which such busiuess is to be
carried on are used aud occupied for
residence purposes as contradistin
guished from business purposes, must
be accompanied by a petition sub
scribed by the owners of two-thirds of
the feet frontage upon all sides of such
block, requesting that a license be
issued to such person or persons named
in such petition, to carry on such busi
ness in such block at the place therein
The promoters of the saloon scheme
will have the provisions of this ordi
nance to comply with and then fight the
liquor clause in the deed before liquor
can be legally sold in any building #n

The Eighth Ward in the City Council.
The affairs of the former city of
Bessemer figured somewhat in the
meeting of the city council Monday
night, although no steps were taken to
complete the arrangements of the fire
department nor to put in the police call
The Colo. Fuel and Iron Co. and
Colo. Coal and Iron Development Co.
brought to the notice of council the
fact that the steel works and Lake
Minnequa properties had been disin
corpated from Bessemer, and would not
now be considered part of Pueblo. It
was agreed, however, that Bessemer
had taken the Lake case to the court of
appeals aud far the time being nothing
would be done. It now lies with the
incoming council to prosecute the case
or permit the steel works and Lake
Minnequa to peacefully withdraw from
the city.
A petition requesting that Evans
avenue from Washington street to
Northern avenue be declared a busi
ness street was referred.
A remonstrance signed by about 50
members of the ladies republican league
of Bessemer against the issuance of a
saleon license to any one to run a
saloon on Evsub avenue was filed and
concurred in.
Treasurer Frain complained that
some of the Bessemer warrants pre
sented to him for payment were not
properly sealed. Payment will not be
made on such warrants pending legal
