INDIANAPOLIS. Jan. SO. Scenes ot tho
wildest disorder marked today's session
of tho United Mine Workers of America.
Duncan McDonald, secretary and treas
urer of the Illinois miners, chareed that
Samuel Gompers, president of tho Ameri
can Federation of Labor, was "gloriously
drunk" during the Seattle convention and
on other occasions. Gompers denied tho
accusation from tho convention platform.
He called McDonald a "liar" and a "slan
ddrer.'' Charles II. Moyer, president of
tho Western Federation o"t Miners, reiter
ated the charge that if tho Michigan cop
per miners' strike failed It would bo be
cause of financial auststance not given
by the, American Federation of Labor.
Tho delegates showed little sympathy
for Gompers. He asserted -ho was being
tried "beforo a Jury whose minds were
already poisoned," but every" point made
by Moyer and MoDonald was wildly ap
plauded. After McDonald had concluded
the tumult was so great that Gompers,
despairing of a hearing, put on his over
coat and hat and started to leave. The
delegates were silenced, however, 'by an
appeal from Moyer, and Gompers re
turned. For Woman Suffrage.
Tho session was short and the only
other business transacted was to reaffirm
a declaration in favor of woman's suf
frage, discuss a plan to decrease tho tep
rescntatlon at tho conventions, which was
referred to a referendum, and vote down
a proposition to place a clause in the
constitution prohibiting members' of tho
military to becomo affiliated with tho

"Then again in the bar of a Chicago
hotel Gompers got 'lit up,' called mo all

a delegate to this convention from Illi

Speaking of the Beattle occasion, Mc

were half-gallon decanters of whisky.'
McDonald then referred to the asser

tho Michigan copper strikers would dis

Nothing to Do But to
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 30.-InJuilc-tions
against John T. Barker, attorney

proceeding with suits to recover $11,000,
000 excess freight and passenger charges

in an opinion by Judge Smith McPherson,

souri's 2-cont passenger and maxi
mum freight laws also were dismissed.
In accordance with tho recent division of

ing the laws.
In addition tho court held the $10,000
bond put up by each railroad In 1905 when
tho stato rate laws were enjoined has no
reference to those persons who haVo paid
excess rates or passenger fares and they
can recover whatever Is due them.
"Tho Injunction bond," declared Judge
McPherson, "docs not limit any person
as to his claim for recovery of over

Adams, an attorney of thin city, as a
innster to adjucate all claims brought In
tho federal court for excess charges, de

contended that, under the decree of tho
higher court, Judge McFherson's only
duty lay in dismissing the cases "with
out prejudice," talcing no cognizance of
how the excess charges were collected.

ngo. of five how publications were started
every working day during 1913. The Bus

gain only three a week. i
The total number of publications Is 21,
627. There aro 2,010 dallies tho evening
editions outnumbering the morning by
about three to one. There are 672 Sunday
papers. - It requires forty different lan
guages to carry tho news to tho people of
this country. Large lists are devoted to
tho special publications, agricultural,
