United States senator and are strong
Amalgamated men, for the legislature

for the offices of sheriff and county
lev, respectively. Very little
friction developed in the convention,
the entire slate as agreed upon being

unanimous vote the Ravalli county

Aaron Conner of Darby for the nom

Conner was promised this nomination
by Tom Carter and the other Amalga
1 managers as a reward for his
strenuous efforts in behalf of the big

the convention was afforded when Mr.

Buck, W. H. Roberts, A. F. Holt and
William Mason; committee on resolu
tions, Aaron Conner, G. I. Watters, J.
W. Lancaster, W. P. Baker and J. A.
Summers. The convention then ad
journed until 1:30 p. m.
In accordance with the report of the
committee on permanent organization
and order of business, on reconvening
the temporary organization was made
permanent. The report of the com
mittee on resolutions eulogized Presi
dent Roosevelt, Mr. Fairbanks and
