NO OPPOSITION TO THE GENTLEMEN ON TICKET Aims and Policy of the Party Cause of Discussion-J. E. MoNally Is Nomi nated for City Treasurer and W. H. Arnold for Police Magistrate-Repre sentative Men Named for Aldermen. The labor party, which heretofore turned( downl the United Copper crowd cold by the nomination of Larry Duggan for mayor against the United Copper nominee, Pat Mullins. last evening clinched the matter by putting up a full ticket, minus an alder man from the Fourth ward, where there was a dearth of candidates, for the forth coming city election. There has been a great deal of talk lately of Mr. Duggan withdrawing from the labor nomination for mayor and from the political fight. The action of the labor party last night at an adjourned meet ing of its city convention forever put at rest those idle rumors, circulated by the anti-trustite-populist outfit, against Ddg gan and in the interest of Mullins by the action named. The Ticket. The colvention of the labor party met at Judge liarney's courtroom and put up the following strong ticket: For Treasurer-J. E. McNally, a well known memler of the Carpenters' union. For Police Magistrate-W. H. Arnold, former justice of the peace in Silver Bow township. Aldermen : First ward--William Murray. Second ward-James Shea. Third ward-Patrick Boyle. Fifth ward-H. T. Lewis. Sixth ward-F. H. Young. Seventh ward-James T. Pace. Eighth ward-Joseph Bryant. 'There was no opposition to the nomina tion of any of the gentlemen who grace the labor ticket, lnut there was consider able discussion of the aims and policy of the labor party and of the subject of what h::as been done toward fusion with other parties on the lesser nominations, which were left vacant when Duggan was made the standard bearer of the party. McGrath Chairman. The meeting was opened by Ohairman J. J. McGrath, and Mr. Duggan and other members of the fusion committee reported to the convention that an effort to secure a fusion with Duggan as the mayoralty candilate had been made in conference with the conferees of the anti-trust party, but without success. After that the question of putting up a full ticket was discussed. 'Mhere was sollle opposition to that, but the United Copper push, was weaker at this meeting of the convention than at the original one, and the genuile labor men of the conven tion carried the day and put up the ticket. One of the features of the meeting was the nomination of Joseph Bryant for the office of alderman in the Eighth ward. Bryant is an exceedingly new recruit in the labor party. lie was a republican until the recent republican convention, but he soured of that party then because he failed of the republican nomination for alderman in his ward. Central Committee. After the nominations for the offices had been made, the convention selected the following city central committee: First ward-Mike Ryan. Second ward-William Walsh. Third ward-Ed Day. Fourth ward-F. B. Axtelt. Fifth ward-P. M. Barso. Sixth ward-Joe Harrington. Seventh ward-William A. Payter. Eighth ward-E. J. Pelletier.
