Gather to Consider Matters of Interett.
Fittsburg, Jan. 10. The tenth annual
convention of the United States Mine
Workers opened Its sessions here yes
terday with abcut 5C0 delegates in at
tendance. Immediately after the open
ing of the session a dispute arose be
tween President Ratchford and District
President Dolan over the appointment
of the credentials committee, and the
entire session was taken up with an ac
rimonious discussion as to the right of
the chairman to name the committee.
At 1:40 p. m. the convention adjourned
until today without having taken a bal
lot for the r.ew officers. The result of
this convention In connection with that
of the operators is of vait importance,
as a great strike cf coal; miners is not
Improbable an a sequel. ;
Some Talkr of a Colt.
After adjournment the delegates con
gregated ingroupsand much excitement
was evident. Charges of trickery flew
thiek and fast, and today there may be
a bolt from the convention. Ore of the
principal causes for opposition to the
administration faction Is that the pres
ident. M. D. Itatchford, now holds a gov
eminent office, and It is thought thnt
he should not exercise the functions of
the presidential office and take so much
interest in the election of ofacers as he
does. President Ratchford was sup
ported in his contention against District
President Dolan for the right to appoint
thi committee on credentials by a vote
of 207 against 121. The committee con
nists cf P. J. Kcenan. of Illinois; Walte
Cavery. of Pennslvanla. and Joseph
Smart, of Ohio. Dolan wanted one del
c.-rate from each state on the committee
and claimed the president had no con
stitutional authority to appoint.
