T1 MASS CONVENTION TO r BE HELD THIS EVENING " It is the Purpose to Name a Full Ticket -The Call for the Convention Is c Signed by a Number of Prominent Citizens-Democrats Are Likely to Endorse Citizens' Move. Twenty-five hundred citizens and voters have signed the petition asking Henry .Mueler to accept the nomination for mayor 1 of Butte on a citizens' ticket. Tonight at 8 o'clock a mass convention will be held at the Auditorium for the pur pose of naming a citizens' ticket. That Mr. Mueller will head that ticket there seems to be no doubt.

Davis, 0. Hight, S. V. Kemper and Donald Campbell. The Mueller movemenct apparently is as suming huge proportions. Last night's democratic primaries resulted in the ekec tion of a decided Mueller majority. Ap parently the democratic convention, to be held Monday, will indorse the citizens' ticket, at least on the face of last night's returns that seems certain.

',ood morningl Have yol had the grip? --Rchester Herald been figuring on introducing the eight hour system in the clerical force, as has been done with the carriers. The addition of four men will help somewhat in the realisation of this plan. The difficulty heretofore has been that there were not enough men to do the work In such a short shift. If a sufficient number of men can be se cured, the eight-hour schedule will be put in force in the near future. ness and was connected with that business until he sold out his interests and left the state about a year ago. In the early eighties he organized the Bi-Metallic smelter. The pyritic process is generally credited to him. At one time it was said he handled one-eighth of the ore of the state. Mr. Ballou was 56 years of age. He is survived by the widow, one daughter and two sons. CHASED BY SNAKES William Mountain, a well-known bar tender, was arrested and put in the county jail this morning at the unhal lowed hour of a o'clock and charged with having possession of a bad case of de lirium tremens. William was seeing snakes at the rate of is a minute at the time the policemen, two in number, brought him in, and it took a good deal of heavy lift ing on the part of the bluecoats to get him away from his ophidian companions, who accompanied him to the jail and made his journey thither eventful, and lock him up. Mountain tripped over a large snake somewhere and fell down a whole flight of stairs. As a result his face was so bruised that he could easily have passed himself off for a chimney sweep in good standing and still marked by the dust of the chimneys. When he had fallen down the stairs he began very rapidly to crawl up them again, looking over his shoulder with fear written on his face that indicated that he expected to be pursued by the snakes. He scrambled with all his strength to get up the stairs before the pythons and rat tlers could catch him. But they were too swift for him. Ex ecuting a flank movement, they reached the top first and then came down to meet William, and when be saw them coming he wheeled to the rear and began crawl ing down the stairs again as fast as he could go, in the meantime making the air resound with divers and sundry screeches. It is believed that the boa constrictors and pinworms would have captured him in spite of all his efforts and notwith standing his bowls had he not been res cued by the policemen, who packed him into the witnesses' department of the bas tile and enabled him to hide his head in the blankets of a cot. RAINS ADD TO FLOOD TERRORS (Continued from Page One.) the city and the country contiguous thereto are concerned. The strain against the levees south of Red river, on both sides of the river, is increasing, but ccnfidence continues to be expressed that they will hold. A heavy rain fell during the night and early morning, and the weather is cloudy and threatening further precipita. tion. ROOM WORKER IS BEHIND THE BARS Lodging House Keeper Cap tures a Sneak Thief In a Closet in His Place. WILL BE CHARGED WITH BURGLARY It Is Believed That the Prisoner Has Been Operating in Rooming Houses for Some Time Past and That He Is Responsible for a Number of Petty Robberies Committed Here. J. T. Watson will presently be charged by information in the district court with the crime of burglary. The information has been prepared in the district attorney's office, and it will be filed Monday in all probability, as Watson is in jail. Watson is charged with the crime named by Benjamin Bonino, who conducts a saloon and lodging house at No. zt6 East Park street. He classes Watson as a sneak thief, and he and his brother, Martin Bonino, captured Watson at a o'clock in the morning of February as, hiding in a closet in the place named. Watson, according to the story of the Boninos, had already been through one room in search of plunder and was await ing a chance to loot others. They said that they found a silk handkerchief on the person of Watson which he had taken from the trousers of the roomer who occu pied the room which he had already plun dered. The informatnon says that Watson burg lariously entered the place of the Boni nos, which contained goods, chattels, money and other valuable things of the value of $Soo, with the intent to felon iously steal and carry away the same. Young Bonino, the son of Benjamin, told the officers who have the work of prosecuting Watson in hand that on the night before Watson was captured in the closet his room was entered by a burglar, who stole two watches and two suits of clothes belonging to him. He is of the opinion that Watson is the rnan who got his valuables. The house of the Boninos was burglar iously entered by a man named Frank Warren in November, 9gor, and one of the Boninos discovered him and captured him after a fight in which Warren en deavored to escape. Warren, at his trial, said that he was looking for his wife, whom he had been told was in the house. but he did not convince the jury, and they found him guilty and he is now serving a two-year term in the state prison.
