elected to that position by acclamation.

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.

Facts r Reflection
Butte Real Estate has and will pay better returns on
your investment than any city on earth.
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.
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.
Can we show you.

TO STAND TOGETHER
Will Battle for Their Amendments in the
Panama Canal Bill-Some of
BY ASROCIATED PRESS.
Washington, March :6.-The democrat
ic senators at their caucus today resolved
to stand together for the support of the
amendments to the Panama canal treaty.
One of these provides for the modifica
tion of the aicl article of the treaty so as
to insure control of the canal zone to the
United States, and the other enlarges the
provision in the fourth article of the
treaty, which is a disavowal on the part
of the United States of any intention on
its part of enlarging its territory at the
expense of the Colombian or its sister re
iuolics in Central or South America so
as to include Mexico.
Levees in the Southland
av ASSOCIATED P55S5.
Memphis, March 16.-The crucial tests
of the great levees along the Mississippi is
at hand and if they withstand the pressure
of the immense volume of water now rush
ing southward the most sanguine preaic
tions of the government engineers will be
fully verified. The river gauge this morn
ing marks j39., a rise of six-tenths since
7 o'clock last evening. ,his is the highest
stage of the water ever known here, and
the weather bureau officials predict 40 feet
before the crest of the flood passes. The
high water mark in the great flood of
1897 was 37.3.
In North Memphis the situation is as
suming a serious phase. Hundreds of peo
ple are abandoning their homes and every
industry located along Wolf river has
closed down. Street car service in this
part of the city has been practically aban
doned and skiffs are being brought into
requisition. Several railroads have been
seriously hampered by the encroaching
waters and the Yazoo and M'ssissippi val
ley has annulled many of its schedules
because of washouts south of here.
Reports from Hollybush, z8 miles
north of here, say that the levee is being
badly washed on top of the swift cur
rent. It will bq in the neighborhood of 4o
feet. Below Memphis the river continues
to rise slowly except at New Orleans,
where it has fallen one foot in the last 84
hours, and it now stands at 19.a feet.
Laborers are working to save the em
bankment with only partial success. Hun
dreds of sacks of sand are being thrown
about the levee and the sheriff is impress
ing many negroes into service. The weak
point is about :,ooo yards in length and
the water is running over the top of the
levee. Reports from Dyersville, Tenn.,
say immense damage has been wrought
in that section by the high water. Many..
of the planters in the Mississippi bottoms
have fled to the hills and report that their
homes are being washed away.
Several steamboats left here today for
points north and south to pick up refu
