VOL. XXII. NO. 43 BUTTP. MONTANA. TUESiAY EVENING. MAY 6, 1902. PRICE FIVE CENTS [L[CTION OF WOMEN'S CLUB O[flCIRS AT TNH LOS ANO[LES CONVENTION SEEMS TO BE NECK AND NECK RACE BETWEEN MRS. DECKER AND MRS. DENNISON. PRESIDENCY MAY COME WEST 1Names of Several Candidates Will Be Placed Before the Nominating Con vention and All Sorts of Incipient Booms Are Being Started-Second Session for Business Is Held-Utah Makes Protest. (By Associated Press.) Los Angeles, May Q.-The political out look this morning at the woman's con ference Is that Mrs. Dicker and Mrs. Dennison are running neck and neck for the presidency. Mrs. Dlecker's reiterated statement not to interfere with the chqnces of the New York woman has apparently had no effect on her follow ing, and state after state has declared allegiance. Mrs. Dennison Is not at all distui.ed over the change, and would throw her influence to Mrs. Decker, if to any one, and her still loyal friend' are in every way trying to advance her candidacy. The prospect of the presidency coming I West has unsettled the hrpes of candi dates for secondary offices. The Burdette forces seem to have scat tered somrwhat since California women have not ibeen a unit in their candidacy for a chief officer. Utah Is one of 19 federated states 'whidh have not had an office In the general federation, and they are begin ning to loudly protest against their lack ot representation. Utah will be satisfied with a position on the Iboard, and for this place Mrs. \V. A. Nelden of Salt Lake is prominently mentioned. The nominating committee meets at 5 o'clock this afternoon, and all sorts of Inciplent booms are being started. Minnesota is announcing Mrs. Lydia P. Williams for the presidency, Kansas is pushing Mrs. Vance Humphrey for first vice president, while delegates men tioned for minor offices are numerous. The second big session for business opened this morning witlh the house crowded. PAY TiHE FREIGHTl CONSUMERS OF COAL TO BEAR BURDEN OF TEAMSTERS. ADVANCE OF FIFTY CENTS A TON Coal Dealers Agree to Raise Wages But Insist on the Public Pay ing the Financial Dif ference. There is coal to burn in Butte today but it cost just 50 cents a ton more than it did before the late unpleasantness. The coal dealers have given in to the Teamsters' union and hereafter the men will receive $3 a day for eight hours work. This was the conclusion of the mem bers of the Butte Coal Exchange, as the association of coal dealers in the city is known, at a meeting held last evening and today the members are making final arrangements of settlements with ,the officers of the union at the head quarters in the Goldberg block. Coal will now cost the people of Butte $5.50 and $7.50 a ton instead of $5 and $7 as heretofore. This is the second settlement of a threatened strike at the consumers' cost, the icemen having also raised the price of ice to meet the demands of the men. The dealers in ice and coal are not losing anything on the arrangement, the teamsters are perfectly satistled and the dear public pays the piper. The strike, or walkout as it may more properly be 'termed, continued just five days and in spite of the fears of incon venience and threatened trouble was hardly felt In the city. The situation at the lumber yards re mains unchanged and as the dealers are making no advance in the matter there does not seem to be much prospect of an immediate settlement. WASHINGTON.-The secretary of war yesterday forwarded to the senate Phil Ippine committee the names of over 350 officers and enlisted men who had been tried in the Philippines by court-mar. tial for offenses against the natives and also a long list of cases of natives tried by military courts. OVER AVERAGE GOOD DAY WITH BUTTE SPECULATORS That was the cry among the Butte speculators in stock this morning. The tip had been passed along the line that there would be something sensational in the stock and the plungers early got in on the ground floor. Monon did not prove disappointing. While there was no big jump in the stock, yet it was strong and climbed steadily up. It opened at 74 1-4, dropped to 74 and then boomed to 78 1-2, lost a half point, recovered and registered 78 1-4, and at 1 o'clock was at 78 and strong. Some 15 speculators in Butte were in on the stock and while they cleaned up sio money, had all the excitement, and broke even on the stock. There was a tip out this noon to buy Missouri Pacific, Copper, Canadian Pa cific, St. Paul, Northern Pacific and Southern Pacific. This tip became 4 Slogan and there was a rally arould fROGRESS Of IB[iF INQUIRY IN MISSOURI COUNSEL FOR PACKING COM PANIES RAISE THE QUESTION OF THE STATE LAW.

Jefferson City, Mo., May 6.-At the opening of the beef inqluiry in the su prernw court today Mr. Hagerman of Kansas City represented the Armour, Cudahy, Swift and Morris and Hammond companies and filed an objection to the proceedings. Mr. Hagerman said te Intended to bring in question the validity of the state and trust law and that their clients, on their advice, were not present. We wish to proceed by an application for a writ of prohibition or a certiorari, he said. "We wish to bring the law before the supreme court, to be passed upon as to its constitutionality. This proceeding is merely a fishing expedition on the part of the attorney general." Attorney General E. C. Crow replied, stating that the Inquiry had been called' for the purpose of learning whether the proceedings should be ci4 imenced to pre vent theon from doing buesiness in this state. Most of the men on whom service was obtained, are retail dealers of St. Joseph. Judge Ulrgess ruled that the inquiry should be heard and Frank St. Androus, it St. Joseph retail dealer, was called as the first witness. He was questioned by the attorney general, relating to the coolers main tained 'i St. Joseph by Morris, Cudahy, Armour and Hammond. "The coolers are near together," said the witness. "They do not do a retail business, but they sell to large customers on the quiet."

DECISION IS AGAINST THE NATIONAL LEAGUE (By Associated Press.) St. Louis, May 6.-In the circuit court today Judge Tully denied the petition of President Itoblson of the St. Louis National League Baseball club to re strain Wallace and Harper from play Ing with the St. Louis American league team. President Robison declared he had contracts with the two players which gave him their exclusive services this season. Judge Fisher, who had been asked for a similar injunction to restrain Heldrick from playing with the American league's local team, also denied the petition. The reasons given in both cases for denying the petitions for Injunction were that the judges found the contracts signed by the players with the National league were one-sided and contrary to the constitution. They also found evi dences of a trust. Drowned While Boating. News was received here to day to the effect that two nieces of James H. Lynch had been drowned Sunday while boating near Pembroke, Ontario. The girls were members of a pleas ure party when the sad accident occurred. Mrs. Lynch leaves for Pem broke tonight.

In all of these states it was raining today and reports were frequent of good crops. In Chicago and New York, particularly, the market was strong and even on the St. Louis ex change where "fire alarms" are daily, there was a feeling of confidence this afternoon.
