WHO WILL HEAD MINE WROKERS RETIREMENT OF PRESIDENT JOHN MITCHELL LEADS TO SPIRITED CONTEST AND MAY RESULT IN ENTIRE CHANGE OF POLICY. Indianapolis, ind., Dec. 4. — The local unions of the Uhlted Mine Workers of America will ballot next week to choose a successor to Presi dent John Mitchell, who has been the national head of the great or ganlzatlon for the past ten years, The ill health of Mr. Mitchell has forced his retirement from the pres idency, a position to which he could undoubtedly have been re-elected had he so desired. There is a general feeling that with a new man at the helm of af fairs there will come some radical changes in the policy of the big labor organization. For this reason the election next week is awaited wlth keen interest in labor and in dustrial circles. Two candidates are in the field for the presidency. They are Thomas L. Lewis, vice president of the or ganization, and William R. Wilson, secretary treasurer. The indications are that Mr. Wilson is slightly In the lead, though Vice President Lewis is expected to give him a close race. W. B. Wilson Leads for Place Of the two, Mr. Wilson is prob ably the better known as his posi tion of secretary-treasurer, which he has held for many years, has brought him into close relations with the rank and file of the organ ization throughout the country. Mr. V ilson comes from Pennsylvania, where he has long been prominent in labor affairs and more recently has taken an active part In politics as a representative of organized Ia bor. In the years that he has filled j the office of secretary-treasurer of the United Mine Workers he has 1 handled millions of dollars of the j funds of the organization. He has I given general satisfaction in the j performance of his duties, and is I popular with the members of the or ! ganization, not only in his own ; state but in other states as well. Though Mr. Mitchell has declined to interfere in the contest in any way, j it is generally believed that he ! would like to see Mr. Wilson, with j whom he has always been on terms jof intimate friendship, chosen as his successor. Lewis His Chief Opponent Vice President Thomas L. Lewis, the opponent of Mr. Wilson for the presidency, is a resident of Ohio. He has been active in the affairs of the mine workers for many years and is probably as well known to the mem bership as Is Mr. Wilson. Reports have been circulated that President Mitchell and Vice President Lewis are not on good terms, but these reports are denied at the general headquarters of the organization in this city. While It is true the two did not agree on several important questions that have come up in con vention. it is said that the differ ences did not bring about ill-feeling. Four years ago, when the operators demanded a 3 per cent reduction in wages at the Indianapolis conven tion President Mitchell and Vice I President Lewis favored the plan, to ; avoid serious trouble. They found themselves opposed by a number of . officials from various states. Finally i the proposition was submitted to a (referendum vote, and the national (officers were upheld. At a recent conference of officials from Indiana. I Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania, held in this city, both Mr. Mitchell and Mrs. Lewis were present, and there was no indication of ill feel ing. j There is little contest for offices ! outside of the presidency. Should |Mr. Wilson be chosen president, it is ^ probable that William D. Ryan of Illinois would be chosen to succeed (him as secretary-treasurer of the na tional organization. Mr. Ryan at (present fills a similar position with (the Illinois organization. John P. j White of Iowa is the only candidate J for vice president. Buckeye State Grocers COLUMBUS. O.. Dec. 4 —The an nual convention of the Ohio Retail Grocers' association, which opened 1 here today, is one of the largest gatherings ever held by the organi zation The convention will remain in session several days, during w* time a long list of questions of In terest and importance to the retail trade will be considered and acted upon. RIVERS-HARBORS CONGRESS OPENS THIRTY STATES NOW REPRE SENTED IN ORGANIZATION THAT WILL PLAY IMPORTANT PART IN WATERWAYS LEGIS LATION Washington, Dec. 4.—with Congressman Joseph E. Ransdell j presiding, the National Rivers and Harbors congress opened today what I promises to be the most important ; convention in its history. This is j the fourth meeting of the congress \ an( j the second annual one since its I reorganization. The sessions are be-1 jng held in the assembly hall of the New Willard hotel and will contln- j ue f D r three days. The initial meet- ; ing this morning was devoted to ad- j dresses of welcome and the comple tion of the organization of the con ventlon. Commercial and water ways organizations of over thirty states, from the Atlantic to the Pa cific, have sent delegations. Among the visitors are some of the leading 1 statesmen and business men of the been manifested for the development country. Never before has such enthusiasm and improvement of the water transportation of the country as at today's meeting. This is largely due to the fact that the president, f or ^e fl rs t time in the history of the country, has given official in dorsement to plans for waterway improvements and has fully recog nized the importance of such work to the commercial welfare of the nation. The congress will not consider an y special project, but will devote its entire attention to the import a nce of securing Increased appropri ations for river and harbor improve ments. It demands that a more lib eral proportion of the revenue of the government derived from com merce be expended in its interest in improving the channels of trade and transportation. The percentage of such revenue heretofore used for waterway improvement has been only about 3 per cent, and the rlv ers and harbors boomers declare to be accomplished. - that this is totally inadequate, in view of the vast amount of work yet MOORE ATTACKS ATTORNEYHENEY SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 3.—A.
