WHO WILL HEAD
RETIREMENT OF PRESIDENT
JOHN MITCHELL LEADS TO
SPIRITED CONTEST AND MAY
RESULT IN ENTIRE CHANGE
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
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
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
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
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.

Never before has such enthusiasm

due to the fact that the president,

improvements and has fully recog
nized the importance of such work
to the commercial welfare of the
The congress will not consider

its entire attention to the import

improving the channels of trade and

such revenue heretofore used for

only about 3 per cent, and the rlv
