BIG CONVENTION CLOSES MONDAY St. Louis Is Selected as the Next Meeting Place for Mine Workers. DOM'T LIKE INDIANAPOLIS. THERMOMETER SLOWLY FALLING LOWER. At Late Hour Last Night It Registered at Zero With All Indications of Going Below That Point Today. MAYOR AND WHOLE CITY DID NOT PAY THEM THE PROPER RESPECT IT IS ASSERTED CON FERENCE IN FEBRUARY. I It was all a joke those warm days of December and January, when the denizens of this northern cli'ie , thought that the weather which us- j ually lingers around the Gulf of Mex- ! ico had been slipped up about twenty-: five degrees. People awakened to the ! I real thing yesterday. Last rht the I j worst blizzard that has visited the city ' ! in years swept down on shivering in- j ! habitants. The thermometer has been j i falling since six o'clock last night and ! I at a late hour the thermometer reg- j istered at zero with a promise of fall- i i ing still lower. All indications point j to a prolonged cold wave. The storm I ; is affecting the city in many ways.) The trains from the east are running j I two hours behind schedule time and . j the traction cars have been an hour off schedule.. The telephone wires of the city and " surrounding country are much dam aged by the wind, and torn up gener ally. jOne of the most noticeable ef fects of the storm was the absence of the country trade in the city yester day. Few farmers left their firesides to come to the city, and those who did brave the storm were more intent on thawing out than they were desirous of trading. The merchants felt the ef facts when they counted their cash last night. As one dealer said last night: "We do not realize the amount of trade ' which conies to Richmond from the surrounding district until a blizzard breaks over us and keeps the farmer at home."

TANK SCRAP BAN Faculty at Purdue University Abolishes Ancient Custom At the Institution. UNDESIRABLE FEATURES. Lafayette, Ind., Feb. 1. Official an nouncement was made from the office of the president of Purdue university, this morning that the famous "tank scrap," the annual freshman-sophomore struggle, had been abolished by the faculty. The faculty action is the result of an investigation following the last "tank scrap," at which there were several thousand spectators. The presence of such a large crowd brought with it many undesirable fea tures. Scores of street fakirs, sand wich, hot coffee and popcorn venders lined the roads leading to the scene of the scrap, and score of drunken per sons mingled with the crowd. There were, several fights among this ele ment and it was this feature particu larly tliat led to the investigation. The faculty has put the custom under a ban. and will not tolerate another scrap. The students probably will make no effort to disregard the order, for the faculty will enforce the rule to the letter. Indianapolis. Ind., Feb. 1 The ! United -Mine Workers the coal min ers of the country broke away from Indianapolis today. It was voted to hold the I'jO'J national convention in St. Louis. This was due txi large rep resentation from the Southwest and from the Illinois coal fields, near St. Louis, and also to a general grievance among the delegates that seemingly Indianapolis did not appreciate their convention sufficiently. They drew this inference from the fact that tiny were not welcomed, to the city by t lie Indianapolis Labor Union, the. mayor of the :ity, the Commercial Club or the Governor of the State. However, the indications are that a special national convention will be held in Indianapolis this spring. The deadlock between the coal operators and the miners of Indiana, western Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, which ended in a failure to issue a call for a joint wage conference, pro vided for the same joint committee to meet in Indianapolis again February 27 to take further steps to re-establish the joint relations that long ex isted and to issue a call for a wage conference. To Met Operators February 17. After long discussion the miners' convention ratified this arrangement and also adopted a resolution provid ing that when the national conven tion adjourns, which probably will be Monday or as soon as the national election, that it be adjourned to meet on the call of the national officers and the committee that will meet the op erators here February 27. This call, it was specifically understood, was to be for a national convention and noi for just a meeting of the delegate:, from western Pennsylvania, Ohio, In diana and Illinois. It will be issued to formulate the demands to be made on the opera 1 ors if the operators decide to enter into a joint wage conference. If the operators decide to enter into a joint all for a wage conference when they meet here, February L'7. the special national convention of miners will be held in the city desig nated at that time for U joint con ference. This ill likely be Indianap olis, though Chicago is spoken of. 10c WHITE NAINSOOK 5c MILL ENDS.
