CLOTHIERS OF THE GREAT WEST ROUND STREET GOMPERS PLEADS PEACE TO MINERS Urges Harmony and Solidarity in Ranks In Speeches At In- dianapolis (By a Staff Correspondent of the Chi- cago Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. plea for harmony and solidarity in the ranks of the miners was made by President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor at today's ses- sion of the special convention of the United Mine Workers of America. Coupled with the plea of the labor chief, John Mitchell, former head of the miner's union, made a stirring ap- peal to the delegates, and especially to the Illinois delegation, to refrain from indulging in personal attacks and from boisterous conduct in the convention. j Mr. Mitchell closed his plea by ask- ing the Illinois representatives to "remember the men and women back home and so conduct yourselves that you will reflect credit on the work- ers of your state and be an example to the others in this convention." Uproar Calmed by Mitchell The appeal was made shortly after the opening of the morning session and during an uproar resulting from a rapid cross-fire of personal argu- ments over the report of the creden- tials committee. So great was the noise and confusion that all business had to ba suspended. President Lewis tried in vain to restore order. It was the first time that Mr. Lewis has lost control of the convention and the delegates refused to DC silenced by t5ie gavel. "What Mr. Lewis failed to do with the gavel Mr. Mitchell did by obtain- ing the floor to speak. His anpgar. ance on the floor and his first words calmed the miners instantly. Rumors were circulated that Pre- Cured BY FIG PILLS Xot often do you near of a 25c pre- paration being sold with n guarantee TO cure you. An absolute guarantee goes with every box of FIG PILLS. They will cure Rheumatism, Backache, Bladder Trouble, Frequent Urinating, Burning Sensation, Painful Stitches', Sluggish Liver and all Stomach Trou- ble. If not, your money back. si dent Gompers' mission "in. visiting the convention was to aid in' restor- ing harmony, shattered as a result of the Lewis-Walker controversy over the Illinois coal strike fight, and to prevent a possible split in the union. Mr. Gompers, however, denied that he came for such a purpose, declaring his visit to Indianapolis was to-pre- side over a conference relative to the application of the Western Federation of Miners for a charter from the Am- erican Federation of Laoor. Not There to Take Side "There seems to be an impression that I came here in connection with this said Mr. Gompers. "As the result of that I find myself in" an embarrassing position. A duty called me tere in connection with the affairs of tne "American Federation of Labor, and that is the only reason I am here. I am too little informed about: mining and the technical de- tails of your affairs to take sides in the great questions before you. Even if I were informed I would retrain from taking a part, as it- is you who must settle your'troubles for your- selves and in your> own way. "Out of the crucible of cross-fire and conflicting opinions there must come a united 'organization that will present solid front to those who would exploit the mineworkers of this country. Let the policy of this convention be unity, fraternity, andj solidarity. Look back upon the i field of time and remember the black and hopeless days when there was no miners' union in this country. I ap- peal to you to get together in har- mony make your great union bet- ter and stronger and more powerful than ever." President Gompers announced amid the cheers of the delegates that the Western Federation of Miners soon may be granted a charter and become a part, of the national federation. QE the platform with Mr. G-ompers were Mr. Mitchell, President Charles H. Moyer of the western miners' union, and President W. D. Huber, of the Brotherhood of Carpenters. In spite of the pleas for harmony, it was a stormy session and shouts of and other epithets were employed. During a wrangle over the question of re- sponsibility for calling out the fire- men, engineers, and pumpmen in the Illinois mines President charg- ed District President Walker with be- ing an "habitual liar" and President Walker retorted in kind. A spectacular incident furnish- ealth "KEEPS YOU LOOKING YOUrW Women realize that luxuriant hair of rich, youthful color ai- adds to their TheMairmay be golden, brown or black.but when the Hair becomes gray, there is an appearance of age; an unnatural disfig-ur- mtntand ahandicapin social and buminess life.

In reply to an attack by President Lewis, MacDon- ald challenged the head of the miners to resign his office unless he could prove that the Illinois district of- ficers were guilty o% "dastardly and cowardly" actions in prosecuting the present strike. "I am willing to be tried by this convention here -and shouted MacDonald, shaking his fist at Presi- dent Lewis and advancing toward the platform. "If I am proved guilty of dastardly and cowardly actions as charged by you in your letter sent in- to Illinois, I'll resign my position to- day. Will you do the same Challenge Greeted by Cheers The challenge was greeted by thun- derous cheers. After order had been restored by the gavel Mr. Lewis re- plied "On the testimony of reputable witnesses, yes. On the testimony of Duncan MacDonald, no." President Lewis in his defense of his acts on the Illinois compromise declared "my record is clear and my x conduct my dealings with the opera- tors by correspondence so that a rec- ord may be kept. T don't spend my time in fancy clubs discussing the la- bor question." In saying this President Lewis look ed straight at where Mr. Mitchell was sitting. Mr. Mitchell ignored the sally, but Secretary MacDonald shouted "I don't know whether the blue room in the Claypool hotel is a fancy club or not, but the fact is that Pre- sident Lewis met the operators there and he met them alone. Shortly af- ter -that the call for this convention went out, and the operators h d the news before the district officers the miners knew anything about a convention." Mr. Lewis explained that he was authorized by the board several days before he met the operators to call the special convention and added "that some people are so used to telling lies that they can't tell the Mr. Mitchell put a question to Mr. Lewis as to the authority of the in- ternational executive board- to inter- fere with wage scaled formulated by the districts. "Do you know of an instance when the international executive board ever modified or changed a wage scale ov- er the heads of -the district asked Mr. Mitchell. "I ask this for information in order that I may form an opinion and ]je enabled to vote intelligently upon the question before us." answered Mr. Lewis. "In 1906, when Mr. -Mitchell was presi- dent, the district officers of West "Vir- ginia, were authorized to modify their demands." "President Lewis has not answered my said Mr. Mitchell. "The board had a right to authorize the district officers to make modifica- tions, if they wanted to, but has the board the authority to modify or change the wage scale without the consent of the districts President Lewis failed to reply, but announced that he will resume his defense tomorrow. It is likely that a report on' the Illinois fight will be presented to the convention tomor- row.

Mr. Newman, then president of the New York Central, disinherited his niece when he 'heard of her marriage, and this was added to her woes when the inevitable separation from Will- iard came.
