FULL TICKET PUT

Alderman From Fourth Ward
is the Only Vacancy on
List Decided Upon.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
