Pops Meet Today and Ap point Conference and Other Committees. It was 3 o'clock before the populist con vention was called to order in Judge Clancy's department of the district court this afternoon. The name of J. E. IHealy as temporary chairman was called and Mr. llealy was elected to that position by acclamation. John Doran, secretary, then read the call. After the reading of the call John Doran was formally elected temporary secretary. It was then suggested that the chair ap point five members on the following com mittecs: Committee on permanent orgall ization and order of business, committee on credentials, committee on conference and committee on platform and resolu tions. The populists were expected to get to gether at a o'clock, but they could not decide whether they would meet in IBar ney Shanahan's hack or the courtroom,. and as the permanent chairman of the central committee was at Helena there was difficulty upon agreeing upon some one to call the assembly to order. Be sides that, the meAmbers of the sideshow to the Ileinze democracy were lacadaisical about getting into action in any way. It was understood beforehand that the populists would be glad to back the anti trust organization up in their pushing forward of Pat Mullins for mayor, and that they would be satisfied with four aldermen and one city officer, bteside, what else they might get. It was to late for the Inter Mountain to get mtcu of a line on thtir lproceed'c as, as they dal not wake up in time to al anythitng. The coanutittecs appointeld were eas fl lows: Conference -T. R.

Alter Facts r Reflection Butte Real Estate has and will pay better returns on your investment than any city on earth. WHY SO? Because people will listen to knockers-the man who has had confidence in Butte, has invested his money in Butte realty has grown rich; the greater the confidence the richer he got. STOP CROAKING When you are dead and gone your posterity will see a greater Butte than now. GET IN LINE Get good inside property and improve it and join the crowd of prosperous men-look around you--there are thousands who never will sell their Butte realty well placed; because there is nothing in the country they can get the same increase and interest out of on their money.
