THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXII. No. 320. BUTTE, MONTANA, FRIDAY MARCH 27, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS MUELLER THE WINNER Expression of Admiration for Three-Party Man is General. COMMITTEE IS SURE Believe It Will Be Easy to Raise Money for the Campaign. WEARY OF MISRULE Thought People of Butte Desire a Change of Government. I The campaign committee of the three parties which are supporting the ticket aominated for the city election by the citi aens' party of Butte, last night selected an executive committee. The committee is composed as follows: Chairman Eugene Carroll and C. F. Kelley of the citizens' party, Chairman H. A. Gallwey and George H. Casey of the democratic party and Chairman Charles Schatzlein and Ben Plummer of the citi zens' party. At the meeting of the campaign commit tee last night P. J. McArthur was also elected treasurer of the committee. He will have charge of the campaign funlds raised by the finance committee and the business appertaining to it. The indications that the finance com mittee will meet with great success in col lecting campaign funds are excellent. The finance committee report that they have met with very favorable treatment on the part of the members of the various politi cal parties which they have interviewed for the purpose of raising funds, and be live that they will meet with success in their work. RESPECT FOR MUELLER IS HEARD ON ALL SIDES On all hands are heard expressions of admiration and respect for Mr. Mueller and his fellow candidates and nominees of the three parties. Everything demon strates that Mr. Mueller has the confi dence of his fellow citizens, and that there is a strong determination in the community to place him at the head of the city and insure a change from the cor ruption which Butte has been the sub ject of to a clean, honest and able govern ment, which is certain to come into exist ence with the election of Mr. Mueller and his fellow nominees. Every day shows clearer and clearer that Mr. Mueller is the right sort of ma terial for mayor, and the enthusiasm of his adherents is continually increasing. On every side there is a marked falling off in the boast of the anti-trustites which were so loud in the land a short time ago. LOST FAITH IN VAIN PROMISES OF POLITICIANS The people of Butte have lost faith in the false prophets of the populists and the not-to-be-trusted organization of the Heinze push, and they now demand some thing far better in the way of a municipal government than such parties ever have given them. The popular wave that is behind Mr. Mueller is growing larger daily, and when election day arrives it will sweep the pres ent city administration out of office, with the evils that the public have cried against in vain, and will sweep into office the head and all the nominees of the citi zens' ticket, carrying along with the latter efficient, economical and moral govern ment for the city of Butte.

It was hard lines for the clerks. The task of driving along the freaks so that those who had some definite idea of what to do might get a chance kept theum busy.
