No. 11 upon the Roll of Honor of all National'Banks ANNA GOULD'S ROYAL ROGUES EXHIBIT "A" AND EXHIBHT "B' r MEET IN COURT TO CONTEST OVER SMIRCHED HONOR AS SESSED AT 20 CENTS PARIS, Jan. 21.—Count Boni de Castel lane, divorced husband of Mme Anna Gould, apeared In the Paris criminal court today to answer to a charge of assault prefered by his cousin Prince Halle de Sagan. The latter asks one franc as damages. Count Jeane de Castel'ane, brother of Boni, who is alleged to have par ticipated in the assault on the prince, is not named in the suit. Count Boni will urge in defense that the prince gravely insulted him in church and that as de Sagan is "not a gentleman" and therefore beyond the reach of the code of honor, he was forced to seek redress by spitting in his face and administering a public thresh ing. Both the prince and the count de ny that Mme. Anna Gould was the cause of their quarrel. Prince de Sagan has been very attentatlve to Mme. Gou'd of late and it has been reported that they would be mar ried In the near future. Many be aroused the wrath of the count against his cousin. The prince- was painfully but not seriously injured In the attack made upon him by the de Castellane brothers. MRS.

'** MINERS MAY CALL STRIKE CHANGES IN ADMINISTRATION OF UNITED MINE WORKERS MAY PRECIPITATE DISORDER AMONG UNIONS INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Jan. 21.— A gigantic strike of coal miners, 1 which would in two months exhaust the coal supply of the cou itrv ai-J result in the greatest fuel famine ever known in the Uni tel States, ' is one of the possible results >.f the convention here of the Untied Mine Workers of America. The convention will be tt e must important in the history of he Uni ted Mine Workers, not only ..o the miners and operators, but to the public at large is certain. It will mark the retirement of Joh nMitch-. ell, admittedly the world's most in f'uential labor leader, from the pres idency of the organization, and this alone is sufficient to make the meet ing a memorable* one. At this convention the question of renewing the interstate agreement will be taken up, and it Is the pos sible failure of the settlement of this problem that may bring about, the greatest tieup of the coal min ing industry ever known In the United States. For many years Te miners have been attempting to c c cure the adoption of a set day r r all the agreements between the mine workers and operators to ex pira I^y this aeias the union when seeking for i*. roawvl pay or improved conditions and failing to get the desired re.•>•;'ts, 'night bo in a position to act -s i unit an! »-it off the entire suup.v simultaneously all over the country, thus forcing the mine owners to meet their de mands. With a universal a^teen ent day, the power of the mice workers would be doubled. Tbe operators realize this and will right any at IS>^ '£ ^eTand the operators declare that they des-re peace, both sides are actively en gaged in preparing for war. and» the significance of these preparations Is significance rot to be mistaken. John Mitchell's retirement at this time makes the situation ai' the more precarious. With his firm hand removed from the'helm there may be breakers ahead for the United Mine Workers. The candi f or the successors!) Ip to Mitch- in q11 nro w n Wilson, the present Vt.\ ell are W. B. Wilson, the present cty secretary-treasurer, and Thomas to Lew's, the vice president. While both men arê familiar with the work ings of the organization and are , a i)] e raen, neither is likely to come > t0 the standard set by President, Mltchell wllo combined conserva tlgm wJtll fearlessness and ability in ^ managemellt of the affairs of the organization. That the United Mine Workers of America has a membership of nearly half & million and has become one of the strongest labor unions In the world Is due largely to the efforts of John Mitch- j ell, who built up' the great army of underground to'lers with only a weak and inefficiently organized [men as a nucleus. I All over the country the miners j are eagerly discussing the outcome of the convention. They have heed j the a jvice of John Mitchell and I have boarding their money for I the struggle. The treasury of tho .[national organization is also re [ported to be in a sound condition, amf tbe officers of the various dfs triets are also well supplied with coin. coin. The operators, too, have been pre paring for trouble and have quietly perfected a strong organization, Railroad offlCalB have been storing «>»1 for months past and will be we'l euppliied * when Ithe test of strength between the miners and the operators comes to band, Another vital matter of general public interest which will be fully considered in the convention Is that D f the terrible disasters which have recently occurred In the mines of the country, especlal'y In West Vlr- ginia and Pennsylvania. The oper- ators will probably receive a demand to adopt measures for more effective- j y safeguarding the life and limb of miners. The last year has been one 0 f many fatal'ties for the mine workers, nearly 1,000 men having lost their lives in the recent mine horors at the Darr mine in Connells- 'vile, Penn, the Consolidated mines I at Monongah, W. Va., and minor disasters at Belle Vernon, Penn., Yolande, Ala., and other places. In West Virginia alone nearly 500 men were killed in m'ne disasters during; 1907.
