POPS WILL FUSE
TO GRAB OFFICES THEY OF THE WHISKERS DECIDE THE CAME IS TOO BIG TO BUCK AGAINST ALONE. ANY OLD PARTY WILL DO ON ANY OLD PLATFORM And Thercfore a Committee Is Appoint ed to See Who Will Offer the Best Terms-Mrs. Haskell Carries Woman Suffrage Plank After a Hard Fight Fought Like a Woman Gallantly. There eas a populist convention in Dutte last evening. It was a state con vcntion too and the big office holders were here trolll Iorth, south, cast and wcet, but somehow they didn't cut much figure in lButte. For all practical purposes they might as well have stayed at home. There was the uual supply of populistic oratory, an elaborate and wordy list of resolu tions and that was all. No nominations were made for state offices and none of the actual work of a convention was done. Perhaps the only feature of the meet ing was the winning light Mrs. Ella Knowles IHaskell made for universal suf frage. After carrying the plank in the county convention, she put up a hard fight aait+t many of the statesmen of the party and won out. If Montana gives her women folk a vote, their first political act should be to put Mrs. Ilas kell tip for governor or governess. She gives the politicians cards and spades in the conventions and then holds the win nIing hand. The popIulists last night decided for fusion. M1any talked of the strength of the party and how they would carry everything. but they ultimately decided to get sonme other party to help them in the work. They did not name the other party. They simply agreed to fuse with somebody-anybody, so long as it was fusion. A committee composed of the follow ing was authorized to carry out the terms of the deal and make a fight for the di vision of the offices: S. R. Jensen of Cascade, J. If. Caldcrhead of Lewis and Clarke, Ben llagar of Yellowstone, T. R. Ilinds of Silver iBow and James Donovan of Cascade. It was midnight before the crowd left Judge Clancy's court room with the des tiny of Montana in the hollow of their hands.

U. yesterday afternoon at the First Presby terian church. Mrs. E. E. Brelsford on "Scientific Temperance Instruction" was well received. At the cvening session the delegates were addressed by Mrs. Mary Kuhl, who took for her subject "Our Boys." Mrs. Kuhl referred to the work of Carrie Nation whom she did not entirely blame for her fearless method of fighting the saloon. She added that the evil was be ginning to show such amazing results to the detriment of the growing American boy that Miss Nation's method of Ceatm paign was in a measure Justifiable. Mrs. I. N. Smith read a paper on "The Morning of the New Consecration." At the conclusion of Mrs. iuhl's speech, Mrs. Anna A, Walker, statd breso. ident, was presented with a gavel made of wood from the Brazilian forests. It was sent with the greetings from the W. C. T.

BAD MAN WANTED IN THIS CITY, CAPTURED Lewis F. Jameson has been captured by the authorities of Los Angeles, Cal., and the police of Butte are happy.

Jameson is known to every police de partment from the Mississippi to the coast. lie has a long record as a criminal and is intelligent enough to always cover his tracks to the extent that he is a diffi cult criminal to deal with. Murphy Knows Him Well. City Detective Jerry Murphy has known of Jameson for the past to years and is well acquainted with his record. "Lewis F. Jameson first began his career as a criminal at the little town of Pelican Rapids, Mich.," said the detective this afternoon, "at which place he committed robbery, and was afterwards caught in the act of applying a snatch to the house or CORONER'S JURY FOUND THE COMPANY TO BLAME Said That the Electrio Power Company Is Responsible for R. N. Whalen's Death. According to the verdict of the cor oner's jury, which sat last night in Tachell's undertaking room:s to inquire into the circumstances surrounding the death of R. M. Whalen, the lineman for the Missouri River Power company who was killed Tuesday afternoon, the man met his death through an accident for which the company was responsible. While the verdict fixed the blamne of Whalen's death at the door of the com pany, It would seem that such a verdict was In contradiction to the gist of the qidence submitted. The principal wit a man against whom he had a grudge. "lie eluded arrest at that place and was next heard from at Passage Isle, Lake Superior. There he poisoned the light house keeper, thinking he could rob the ilace with the incumbent out of thie way. A large reward was offered for his arrest, but again hle fled, and this time came to Butte. That was in 1886. lie held up a man at the point of a gun on South Main street and fled fromn here to the East. "llis next crime was in Philadelphia.

"Several years ago lie again came to luntte and again tried highway robbery. lie was arrested, but managed to escape in some way. lie went to Anaconda and gave the police of that place lots of trouble before lhe returned to Southern California. There he smothered his mother with a pillow, and while she lived for a while afterwards, the brutal treat ment of her son caused an incurable heart trouble of which she finally died. Jameson then stole all the money and jewelry that his mother had and fled East again. "lie must have drifted back to Cali fornia,i for he was arrested there the other day. lie is one of the most dauger ous criminals in the country and has con mitted enough crimes to hang three times over and then some." nesses examined were Joseph Cabe, a lineman, Gilbert McEachern, a watchman at the company's plant and William Stus sy, foreman of the gang of which Whalen had been a member. According to the testimony of these men Whalen had come highly recommend ed as a lineman and as a thorough elee trician. lie had been carefully wvarned, they said, as to what wires to touch and they thought his death was due to his own carelessness. The jury then returned a verdict in which the company is blamed for the lineman's death. Bohan Secures Judgment.
