(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
Mrs. Dennison Is not at all distui.ed

CONSUMERS OF COAL TO BEAR
BURDEN OF TEAMSTERS.

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
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
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

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
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
