BITTER FEELING AMONG DELEGATES Entire New List of Officials Will Undoubtedly be Chosen-Action Will be Taken Tomorrow Regarding Industrial Workers. Denver, Colo., June 26. Acting President Mahoney today concluded his repudiation of the charges made against him in the Western Federa tion of Miners' convention. He advocated breaking away from the Industrial Workers of the WoWd If the two warring factions in that organization could not get together. Acting Secretary Kirwan followed Mahoney. He devoted himself to a refutation of the charges again it him and the acting president, and to a harsh criticism of the Industrial Workers and So'clalist Labor party. Haywood Studies Law. He showed that the latter had con demned the Western Federation in recent Issues of its organ of publi cation. Kirwan read a letter from W. D. Haywood at Boise, In which Hay wood said that since he had been in the Idaho prison, he had taken up the study ' of law and had already passed an examination in four sub jects. W t tor Feeling. There is a very bitter feeling In the convention against Mahoney and Kirwan, especially the former, whom It is alleged took an active part In hiring detectives at the recent con vention of the Industrial Workers of the World in Chicago to slug dele gates to that convention who were not in accord with the Issues ot the leaders. The miners are tired of such al legations against their officer and there Is little doubt that they will settle tne matter iDy selecting an en Urely new list of officials this year. Action Tomorrow. Kirwan has not given them the same provocation as has the acting president, but he has made himself decidedly unpopular by his action in sustaining Mahoney. The debate over the reports of the acting president and acting secretary will prou.ibl continue tomorrow at which time some action will be taken regarding the question of breaking away from the Industrial Workers of the World. The miners are watching the Hay wood trial with great Interest and there Is a unanimous feeling In the convention that the state has not in any way connected the Federation or its ofiicials with the crimes charged by orchard.

INVESTIGATION IS PROBABLY AT AN END Special to The Citizen. Santa Fe. N. M.. June 26. Desnite the fact that the defense In the Trel ford penitentiary investigation had boasted that it would introduce some dozen witnesses to Drove that Trel ford had not inhumanly treated pris oners, no witnesses could be found today and Trelford's attorney side stepped by declaring that the defense could not present its case because it could not afford to pay for a sten ographer to take the testimony. The fact of the matter is, Trelford has no witnesses. It is known that his attorney made efforts to secure witnesses but outside of his personal appointees at the prison, several of whom could not testify in his behalf and tell the truth, he has no evidence to refute the charges against him. This virtually closes the investiga tion although it is understood that several strong witnesses can yet be produced against Trelford. It is probable that he knew this and de sired to escape further embarrass ment. The attorney general will probably not summon other witnesses unless the defense so desires. The evidence submitted thus far covers 150 typewritten pages and la sensational. The Albuquerque Morning Journal was represented at the trial when It had any one there except Mr. Trel ford's attorney who furnished It with Trelford's side of the story, by the democratic editor of a democratic weekly paper published here. its accounts were garbled and mis leading.
