One Year $1 00 Six Months 60 Ant kind of a state fair would be better than no fair at all. Can not a new association be formed? Chairman Hubbard of ths board of county commissioners is being widely praised for his charitable dealings with the deserving poor. The Pueblo Journal which has been struggling against adverse winds is now gliding over the journalistic waters with a steady sail and is bound to weather the storm. It is a credit to the city. Qenbrai.B Coxey and Browne were each sentenced to twenty days in the bastile for displaying partisan banners on the capitol grounds, and in addition were fined $5 each for trespassing on the grass. Tns city council is determined to re trench on expenses and with that end in view has cut off forty-two electric lights, even against the protest of a petition six yards long; and the council is right. There must be economy in city affairs. Cattle reported dying on the plaint of this county owing to the scarcity of grass. There has been but one good rain here since last fall, and the grass has not yet gotten a start, the ground in moat places being covered only by the Drown stubs of last year’s crop. Political speakers should remember that equal suffrage is a dead issue in Colorado, new that the ballot has been voted to the women. The public de mands something new or begs to be let alone. Equal suffrage is a good thing, it is here, and platform prating can not make it stronger. Wht must platform oraters persist in harping on the silver question here in Colorado? There would be as much reason in preaching protection to the manufacturers of Massachusetts or monometallism to the bankers of New York. Coloradoans are all of one mind on the subject of silver. T. V. Powderly, he of the Knights of Labor fame baa been unceremoneous ly expelled from the order, it being claimed by his enemies that be was aiming at its disruption. Mr. Powderly did lots for the K. of L. and in fact gave it most of its respectability as n great workingmen's organization. None but the best, the men of the highest legal attainments and moral standing should be encouraged to make the race for the district judgeship. Apropos of this the usually uon-com mittnl Chieftain gets worked up and says: “Police court practitioners and sbellhark shysters must be kept out of the race." Frank P. Arbur.kle of Denver is being talked up by a small circle of friends for democratic nominee for governor next fall. Mr. Arbuckle is chairman of the state democratic central committee and a shrewd poli tician, but is at variance with many of the big guns in his own party. The present move ie a feeler. It comee with ill grace for Governor Waite to condemn his predecessors for extravagance in office when his own stupendous blunder in calling a special session of the legislature is remembered whereby the taxpayers of the state were robbed of something like $85,000. But consistency never was classed as a populistic virtue. Pueblo base balliats accomplished the remarkable feat of making seventy twe runs in a game last Sunday, many being home runs with several seconds to spare. At the same time a game was played in Peoria, 111., where only five runs were tallied and all hy a ■cratch. Verily the Pueblo boy* are mighty sluggers and great sprinters. The Oklahoma outlaw, “Arkansas Tom,” who killed three men in a fight at Guthrie last fall has been convicted by a jury of manslaughter and will get a sentence of imprisonment for life. The next thing beard of that jury It will be wearing six inch >pnra, long knivee, sharp bseled boots, broad whits lists, fisros whiskers and Winchesters. The city council cat off s number of streets lights In ths Interest of economy, so retrenchment In expenses is ths watchword of ths hoar. Ths two etectgta light companies, however, tak ing advantage of tke howl raised by some of ths residents ta ths dark IbKMa, have beoems etahhom and tw ines to wsspl the eat They w«| can. Now is a good time for the city to cast about fer ways and means to build .id electric plant of its own and leave the hoggish companies out in the cold. What aldermen will take the lead in the matter? The inevitable is happening in the east. Pitched battles have been fought between deputies and striking coal miners in La SAlle, 111., and Connells ▼ille. Pa., and the end is not in sight. Tns Pueblo Star is out after the north side water trustees for a ceal con tract let to the highest bidder, the Victor Coal company. The Star alleges that the trustees accepted a bid of $2.00 a ton for slack, when the Victor is sup pling private parties with the same coal for $1.60 a ton. The over-plus would foot up the handsome sum of $2,400 a year, and the Star demands to know where the surplus goes, declaring that there is boodle somewhere or that the trustees have been hoodwinked. The trustees say that the other bidding companies could not be depended upon, and that they let the contract to the “lowest and best bidder.” What is commonly known as Mexico in this city is the dread of respectable people and the curse of the taxpayers. Every little while some toughs ever in that wretched locality get into a drunken brawl which endß in the maim ing or killing of one or more of the combatants. Arrests and trials follow which cost the city several hundred dollars and no great good is ac complished. The Anselms murder case of the 11 inst is a good example. The coroner's jury found that the un fortunate wretch came to bis death by “unknown hands"—the usual verdict, and this after several dayß investiga tion, and now the city can foot the bill. Mexico <b a costly ornament. The mine operators at Cripple Creek are proceeding to carry out their deter mination of working their property about June 1 in spite of the hostile opposition of the strikers. The leaders of the turbulent element in the camp are said to be Couer d Alene follows who would rather fight than work. The deputies sent to guard the mines, about 400 in number, are ne tenderfeet, half of them being ex-policemen and deputy sheriffs and all of them picked men. If they are called into action they will go m to win, and it looks as if there is bound to he trouble. About 150 men passed through the city yester day morning from Denver on their way to Cripple, all of them heavily armed with Winchesters and revolvers. When “Silver” Dick Bland's presi dential boom was sprung it uncovered the real sentiment of Missouri on the silver question. It demonstrates that the rank and file of the people are for bimetallism, and shows that the banks, the trust companys and the wholesale merchants of St. Louis represented none but themselves when they peti tioned President Cleveland to veto the Bland seinierage bill. If Bland were made president there would be no quibbling, no straddling. The country would have free coinage of silver and the democratic party a respectable leader. But "there’s many a slip.” and as Richard is so far “out west” and the election is two years off it is too early to begin making presidents. Tiik coal miners of Colorado can not affect the result of the strike in the cast one way or the other, and the action of the Fremont miners who are uow bent on driving the employes in the southern part of the state out of the miues is ill-timed and wrong. Those miners at Rouse, Pictou and other points are receiving their custom ary wages and are satisfied to continue work. There is a responsibility resting on those who deprive others of em ployment these times, and the coercion of the Fremont miners can not have the moral support of the public. The coal miners of Colorado should have noth ing to do with “sympathic strikes.” If the miners in the southern part of the state desire to continue work they should be protected in their right. Can This be True? There seems to he hut little doubt that the Coxey movement is being backed with English capital. The object is to disrupt this government, and the English believe that by taking advantage of democratic blunders there will likely result a revolution which will result in great good to that nation. There are several reasons for believing that there lean unseen power betind thle uprising. Not one of theee “generals” but what has large eume of money, although ostensibly they ap pear to have none, but even “general” Sanders, It Is claimed by those who are In a position to know, say that he had about SB,OOO while here in Pueblo. By gathering these armies at Washington It menaces the peace of the country, which England hopes to take advantage of. Nearly nil of the men who com pose those armies are pope, and where could you look for more willing tools to carry out a program for disruption than In ths pop potty?

Address into a Mixed and Fleet ing Political Gatheiing. Governor Waite talked for two hours to a large audience of all political de nominations at the Board of Trade hall Monday night. His speech consisted chiefly of a written address which he had prepared to read at a convention of the Y. M. C. A. in Denver a short time ago but didn’t. Several local populists formed a background to his excellency's manly form, but conspicuous by his absence was I. D. Chamberlain, commissioner of the penitentiary, bounced. Adjutant General Tarsney who still holds his job was there, and made a few remarks after the governor had finished. His excelloncy took fer ills text an article from the New York independent which argued that Christianity and good government are traveling hand in hand and that the world is growing better. The speaker denied everything in substance and delivered a char acteristic populist harangue, making the usual complaint that “they” have everything and poor “we” have noth ing; in tact, fifty years ego there were only four million slaves in the United States and now there are sixty odd millions. The world is growing more corrupt, he said, and the aiguments of the Independent to the contrary “for impudence and falsehood would shame the very devil.” The church was inef ficient in heathen countries and Godless in civilized countries. It wns not on the side of the poor people now in their struggle for better legislation. He made the usual drive at corpora tions and declared that, for instance, the C. F. & I. Co. had not paid its coal miners in Fremont county since last January; heuce the discontent, and hence all corporations wore grinding. The press of the state came in for a roasting for abuse of himself. The governor is out on a campaign tour as lie wants to succeed himself or go to the U. S. senate, he doesn't care which, and this might be called hiß opening speech. Before he finished about half the people had left the hall, no doubt greatly disappointed because the eminont speaker did not confine himself to a defence of his administra tion which has been so severely criticised instead of rehearsing the dry matter of-fact arguments which are in every populist stump speaker's mouth. WOMEN IN POLITICS. A Noted Woman Speaks to a Pueblo Audience. Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, presidont of the Women's National Republican associa tion spoke at the Board of Trade Tues day night under the auspices of the local Women's Suffrage league. Mrs. Foster is forty-flye years of age and lias been on the stump for ten years. She lived in lowa up to a few years ago when she moved to Washington, D. C. where she now resides. While m lowa she took a prominent part in the prohi bition movement She is now making a tour of Colorado, presumedly to en lighten the newly enfranchised female citizens on national political questions. The lecturer’s chief boast was of the nationalism of the republican party as enunciated by Hamilton and opposed by the more democratic Jefferson. In her mind the former was infinitely the greater statesman, aad sbs advised the women to follow his lead. She gave the populists several prods and declared she was tired of hearing them talk of the masses being oppressed; such talk was “perfect bosh." She denied toe, that this is a country for rich men only, and said that “the rich are growing richer and the poor are growing richer, too.” Mrs. Foster reviewed something of the history of the country, beginning with the Boston tea party and brought up the “taxation without representa tion question and predicted that the women of the whole country would some day be enfranchised. To people who keep read np on political events the lecturer had no new ideas to impart, but dwelt on familiar themes. Mrs. Foster is not eloquent nor magnetic but talks in an ordinary sort of way.
