Italians, Austrians, Scandinavians, Poles

Sincr tho docile dago went out on a
coal strike and began making dis
turbances in the coal regions of the C.
F. & I. Co. that big corporation took a
hint and let a lot of them out of the
steel works, and Oiled their places with
negroes fresh from Tennessee. About
forty of them wore ushered through the
gates Wednesday evening and the
dagoes told to go.
The board of county commissioners
is devoting much of its time to waiting
on the flood sufferers who continually
fill the office, and find it necessary to
strain a point for mercy as against
close-fisted economy, but it is better to
err on the side of mercy. Chairman
Hubbard who is also superinteendent of
the poor is putting in lots of time out
side of regular hours overseeing the
wants of the poor who were rendered
homeless and who are now scattered
about the city.
It seems that thore is to be no cutting
down of expenses and that it will cost
as mueh to run the city this year as be
fore. The present council was elected
on a platform pledged to economy, and
upon its organization it formulated a
table scaling down the expenses to the
amount of over $40,000. First the
mayor and aldermen voted a 10 per cent
cut on their own salaries which was
followed by the same cut in the fire and
police departments. This raised a
mighty howl. Then it was decided to
also cut off 42 electric lights. This
raised a mightier howl from some peo
ple in the dark districts, and tho few
aldermen who had not favored a re
duction of salaries, or for that matter
a reduction in anything from the start,
got in their work and the result of it
was that at the last meeting of the
council all reductions in salaries were
declared off and the lights were ordered
in. It all looks very much like a
sham on the part of the council or else
the aldermen lacked the backbone to
stick up for economy when the squeal
commenced. The taxpayers are asking
a good many questions.
Tiie air is full of local politics.
Never before, perhaps in tho history of
the town did the wire pulling begin so
early and the different factions enter
into the contest with such zeal. In
fact with a number of aspirants the
campaign may be said to have fairly
set in. With the republicans who con
stitute the big party in Pueblo county,
the effort is to secure nominations, a
nomination being considered the long
est step toward an election. The
democrats and populists are each de
vising ways and means to collect their
scattered forces which were so igno
minlously smashed al the late city
election when the republicans elected
their whole ticket over the combined
msjonty of the fusioniste, and that,
too, by • big majority. The demo
crats see the mistake they made, and
will hereafter ateer clear of the
populists and set their net for a catch
in caae some nominee on the republican
ticket may prove unpopular with his
party. In thla there la wisdom, for a
good democrat on a straight tiekat
will stand a better chance ef eleetlon
than a poor republican even though he
be on the strong ticket. The pe pallets,
though bedly demoralised, are coming
liiffthn again, and after they have
well nigh loßt their identity as a local
party In that scrimmage, but will have
a ticket in the field next fall and will
endeavor to put their best man forward
The latest from the seat of war nt
Cripple Creek is to the effect that the
war is about over so far as open hostil
ities arc concerned. There is likely to
be trouble ahead, however when the
trial of the arrested strikers begines.
THE SECOND FLOOD.
Pueblo Again Overflowed. High Water
but Little Damage.
Pueblo's second Hood camo last Tues
day night, less than a week after the
deluge of Memorial night. It came at
3:30 a. m. but people had warning,
and having a vivid recollection of the
first disaster, those who had moved
back to the fiats again returned to the
high land, and merchants put most of
their goods on benches and shelves out

Borne have abandoned their base

McCord-Bragdon Co. and A. C. Daniels
arc filling in their basements. Others
will follow suit.
The proposed site of the federal
building was under water and another
attempt will be made to have the loca
tion changed. The high water reach
ed from the vaiduct to 6th street, and
in the vicinity of the Central block was
four feet deep. All the basements
which had been pumped out were of
courso again filled. The Fountain did
considerable damage by washing out
EQUAL IMPROVEMENT TAXA
Those Who are the Most Benefited
Should Bear the Heaviest Burden.
When the city council discusses the
question next Monday evening of
widening the river in order to prevent
auother overflow, it should go slow in
arriving at the manner and means to be
employed. As a matter of course
there are only two things to do to avoid
another drowning out—cither widen
and deepen the river and make higher
levees or move up on the mesa. There
is too much opposition to the latter
plan to make it feasible, as property
owners on the bottoms would raise a
serious objection, and those merchants
who would move up would fear that
their places on the fiats would be filled
by others who might take away a share
of their patronago.
It is more than likely that the propo
sition to widen the Arkansas will he
popular. In such an event, how about
raising the necessary amount, say from
$260,000 to $360,000? The indebted
ness of the city is now almost a half
million dollars, and the taxes are heavy;
they should not be increased, nor
should the already large debt he made
any larger. It is bail enough to have
a burden on the people without ad
vertising it to any grent extent to the
The Indicator would suggest, there
fore, that an assessment be levied against
each lot in the city according to value,
with the exception of the lots in the
district subject to being submerged
which should be taxed much higher in
proportion and these according to
location and value among themselves.
For instance real estate on north and
south Uaion avenues for the full lengths
thereof, and Main street and Santa Fe
avenue from the Banta Fo railroad
tracks as high up a9 Fourth street,
together with «U intersecting streets
for a block each way should be made
to bear tho pricipal burden. Victoria
and Grand avenues and south Santa Fe
avenue. Main and Mechanic street
should also hear a fair proportion.
These streets and avenues are the ones
molt bcnefltted and most valuable and
the burden should fall principally
there. None of the real estate of the
city should be exempt, but the more
the benefit the greater the assessment.
If it were deemed unfair to let the
merchants and others doing business
in the city off without aiding, each
could be taxed a license fee, hut let it
be light. Most of them have suffered
enough already by the flood.
The council would do well to con
sider this plan along with, the report of
the finance and engineer committee
A Complaint Made.
Several patrions of the schools of
district No. 20 have lodged a complaint
with the Indicator because of the
untidy end rough condition of the
achool house yards. They claim that
the yarde are eo strewn with debris and
cinders in particular that It is dangerous,
not to say extremely nnpleasant for
children to play, and that the cinders
are so sharp as to out shoes to pieces in
a very short time. The grounds should
be eieared of all such trash and made
as plaaaaat u possible for tha children.

What’s in a Name?
The La Junta Advertiser-Forum
shows a familiarity with the political
situation in this judicial district which
is out of harmony with its acquaintance
with the names of the various candi
dates for judge. Judge “Weeks’'would
doubtless like to set down ou the A-F.
for such ignorance of the orthography
of the name of a leading aspirant for
judicial honors, and the candidate
“Cotter” to whom the A-F. refers is
propably Attorney Coulter, of Pueblo.
—Rocky Ford Enterprise.
A Chance of Base.
It is almost a foregone conclusion
that Eugene Engley will run for judge
in this district on the populist ticket.
He can have the nomination if lie wants
it and from recent developments there
is every reason to believe tliat lie wants
it had. Think of Eugene Engley oc
cuping the honorable position of
district judge.—Alamosa Journal.
How do They Like it ?
The following interesting locnl is
clipped from the Advertiser-Forum of
La Junta and is purported to have been
written by a correspondent of that
paper. It looks like a game ot sell-out
on the part of somebody, llow do the
Pueblo aspirants for the district nt
torneyship like it?
The latter part of the week I was
talking to a prominent Pueblo whole
sale merchant anil all-around political!.
He asked mo not to mention his name,
as he did not want to get tangled up.
Referring to the approaching judicial
convention, he said that “there were
two strong factions in tho republican
party in l’ucblo. and that one wns
headed by Betts and Abby and the
other by the Gibson crowd. Both of
these factions will make an attempt to
organize tho convention. In the event
of the Betts crowd securing control,
the nominees for judge and district
attorney will both be Pueblo
men. In case the Gibson combine
secures the top hand. Pueblo will lie
given the judgeship and Otero county
the district attorneyship."
