"I want co-operation from all the
constructive elements in the city, but
not dictation from anyone," said
Mayor-elect William T. Stodden in a
talk before the Butte Rotary club at
the Butte Grill yesterday. Mr. Stod
den referred to the tangled condi

said that one of his first duties
would be an attempt to straighten
"I will surround myself with the
very best ability obtainable to give
our city the best possible administra
tion," he added.
Mr. Stodden stated that he was
conscious of the fact that the labor
ing people compose a large part of
the population of Butte, but stated
that they should bear in mind the
fact that the mining companies and
business interests are also important
factors in the welfare of the com

portion of the laboring classes."
Mutual satisfaction was expressed
that Butte, in her Diogenes search,
had at last found an honest man.

Miss Rankin writes to friends in
Butte that she desires to secure first

now taking place in these nations.
And as she is deeply interested in so

no doubt but that Miss nankin will
come home with a fund of knowledge
that only one with an intelligent un
