Alfalfa and fat pocket-books go together with the ranchmen. This is a good year for alfalfa. Fifty thousand dollars was paid out at the steel works last Tuesday. The steel works and the smelters are the mainstay of Pueblo. Rocky Ford is going to have an artesian well. The people of the watermelon town are showing con siderable enterprise these hard times. Snow-covered Pike’s Peak indicates cool summer weather and will be a welcome sight to the crowds of visitors who will llock into the Btate next week. Tiie national republican league will meet in Denver uext Tuesday and many of the most noted men of the party arc expected to be present. It will boa great event for Denver. Coxeyism suffered u severe setback during the mining strike period and will not be able to regain the promin ence it once had. The life of any boom these timea is ephemeral. Not content with living in the great silver producing state of the union. Colorado men with enterprise and capital are foremost among those who are developing the rich silver re sources of Mexico. Bah silver continues to hold its own > at from 62 to 64 cents an ounce, and although it is not gaining in value it is gaining more friends every day. Silver is bound to be the leading issue iu the campaign of 1806. When newspapers refuse to adver tise for foreign customers for one-third the price which they chnrge local ad vertisers they will be doing themselves justice and at the same time bring cheeky fake advertisers to their senses. Sbnatou Teller, the great Bilvcr > leader is going after the goldhug , Rothschilds in a retaliatory manner that counts. He is determined to raise the tariff from 15 to 80 per cent ad valorem on diamonds, an industry in which the silver-hating Rothschilds are interested to the amount of $20,000,000 And Teller has a good chance of winning. The rate cutting from eastern points to Denver, date of the republican league convention, is sure to bring large crowds of visitors into Colorado. The rate of $10.75 round trip from Chicago made ( by the Hanla Fe will be met by other • roads and there is no telling where it will stop. Colorado is indebted to the | Manta Fe for generous reductions on several occasions. The finest white sandstone in the world is quarried near Beulah but owing to the long distance of hauling it by wagon, thirty-live miles, it does not pay to ship it to outside points. It works easily under the chisel and makes up beautifully. The quarrying aud ship ping of this sandstone will be an im portant industry some day when the railroad reaches that locality. TnE Pueblo Star having gone out of the newspaper field," the plant has been taken charge of by a number of unem ployed printers and newspaper people who have organized themselyes into a co-operative cempany and started up the Herald, a daily and weekly paper. It will be run in the interests of the twenty members who form the com pany. The Herald is populistic in politics. Mrs. Helen M. Gougar, the woman politician whom Indiana gave to the world will begin a thirty day campaign throughout Colorado Jnly 1 aud will lecture under the auspices of the Prohibition State Central Committee— ostensibly so at least, but she is new in Denver and talks nothing but pop ulism. She says Mrs. J. Ellen Poster is a fraud. Mrs. Gougar will speak in Pueblo July 7 and 8 It was to be expected that operators and miners at Cripple Creek would look upon one another with mutual distrust after the peace understanding was entered into and the rumors now afloat that there is trouble ahead are not to bo wondered at. As work progresses the feeling of unrest will give way to one of security end the people on the Whole win bo be too busy to Raton to ifHolwo who will endeavor to keep up discord. The great gold camp is bound to see prosperity. It looked very much at one time as if a large portion of the Ute Indian reservation in southwestern Colorado would be thrown open for settlement, the bill having passed the house of representativeH aud was taken charge of iu the senate by Senator Teller. Blit for some reason or other Heuator Vilas is taking exception to the measure and should he persist iu his course the hill will probably go over this session. Colorado is not greatly excited over the fate of the bill one way or the other. The Pueblo Journal which went out of business with the coming of the llood has resumed publication. The slow going Chieftain gloated over the mis fortunes of the Journal and thinking it had downed all opposition cried in ghoulish glee, next! The answer is not one but two competitors, for the Herald is also a morning paper. From these efforts it certaiuly seems as though the Chieftain does not occupy the Biiurise field and that the public de mands more enterprising journalism. The tone of the 4th street shcot has changed from one of disgusting boast to a piteous whine for patronage. It is evident that the Rev. Myron Reed was to blame in the falling out he had with his congregation, lie wants to lie governor badly ami adopted the method of raising a rumpus with his people as an excuse for inakiug the plunge into politics. It looks very much, too, as if there was collusion between himself und leading populists opposed to governor Waite, and that by delivering a great sympathy speech from his pulpit in favor of the striking miners of Cripple Creek he would offset the governor’s popularity with that element and make it appear that he was fired from the big congre- church of Denver because of his sympathy for the industrial class. He is slick enough to be a politican, and will rustle hard to beat Waite for the nomination. The Times Look Better. Jußt at this time when the business depression Ib so great and there is so much hardship on every hand it looks like idle boast to make the statement that there is an upward tendency iu the industrial affairs of the country and that a feeling of greater security predominates the financial world than ha 9 been known for a long time. The tariff hill has bo shaped itself that its passage under its present form will not alarm the most extreme protectionist to any great extent. The manufacturers of the couutry who would he most affected are starting up again as lust as the conditions of the coal strike will permit, and factories that have been idle fora year or more are now spring ing into activity. The big coal strike, the most cx tensive the country has ever known has been practically settled and 200,000 more men are at work in the mines alone than were employed a week ago The great railroad strikes have also been settled as have the trouble iu the iron and steel industry, and these up heavals being periodical the oquanimity of these industries will surely not be disturbed for a year at least, aud uot at all for an indefinite future if the country should be so fortunate as to get proper legislation on the financial question. It is known that there is more cash now bearded in the hanks of the big money centers of the east than there baa been for years, the impatient millionairs have only been awaiting the compromise of the difficulties mentioned in this article to invest it. All Colorado will have to do to secure the liou’s share of it is to not indulge in any more foolish political notions calculated to scare capital away. The high rale of interest and the splendid opportunities to realize on investments are always in ducements to bring capital, and with safe politics it will come. If the signs of the times prove any thing they show an upward tendency and only an unlooked for emergency will causo them to collapse. New Steel Works for Bessemer, Alabama. After years of waiting aud much talking a practical business organiza tion has been effected m Alabama for building a large steel plant at Bessemer. Mr. U. F. Do Bardeleben, on# of the pioneer iron men of that state, to whose abilities as an ironmaster great credit is due for tbe remarkable record that is now being made by furnaces designed to produce 150 tons of iron a day that are now making about 340 tons a day, is at the head of this enterprise. Mr. A. M. Shook, of Nashville, tenn.. also one of tbe foremost iron men of the south, will be one of tbe managers of this enterprise. The Bessemer Land A Improvement Co., which has elected Mr. De Bardeleben piesident, has de cided to build a steel plant with a capacity of 800 tons of slabs and billets per day, with a view to the output being worked up by the Gate City and Bessemer rolling mills. The cost of the plant is not yet folly known, bnt Mr. De Bardeleben write* that they hare ample mean* with which H bttUd a first-clam modem plant. The PUEBLO, COLORADO, SATURDAY, JUNE 23,1894.

An ugly row was kicked up on the base ball grounds just south of town last Sunday in which Harry Slater, a steel works employe was slashed twice across the face with a knife in the hands of a down town negro named George Lloyd. The assault was unex pected aud Slater had no chance to de fend himself. Jack O'Leary followed Lloyd to the flats of East Pueblo and called a hrakemnn to assist him in ar resting the runaway. The brakeman knocked the negro down with a coupling pin, rendering him unconscious, and then called the patrol wagon. Justice Willauer is now disposing of two cases of assault. A move in the right direc tion would be to do away with a mixt ure of whites and blacks in ball playing A Humorist’s Idea of a Good Husband. [Bill Nyo.] The "best husband? Why! the one who is devoted first to his wife and children, second to his work and every thing else. There you arc. I could preach a sertnen on this text, but I'd rather give an example. I've been lecturing for ten years. Once I was just stepping on tbe stage to greet a big house and be funny, when I got a telegram saying my wife was ill, and my tour children over at New Brighton, Staten Island, wore all sick with Bcarlet fever. I was bound for California. Well! A lecturer must always be joyful, always gay and cheerful, to his audience. I never knew how I got over that programme; but in the morning I broke contracts to the extent of $5,000, and took the first swift train for home. That man, in my opinion, was the beet sort of husband.—From “Men Who make the Best Husbands; Demorest’s Magazine for July. Read the INDICATOR.
