Ey the United Press. .
Denver, Col., Doc. 17. Tin? first mat
ter to come before the Federation of
Labor this morning was the selection
of the jilace for headquarters, the con
vention having decided to remove the
same from New York city. The cities
of Washington, Brooklyn, Detroit und
Indianapolis were placed In nomina
tion. Indianapolis was selected by a
The convention then proceeded to
the election of ollleers. The balloting
resulted In the defeat of President
Gompers and the election in his place
of John Mcllride, the president of the
VniteU Mine Workers; The vote was:
Gompers, 037; McHride, 1,102. Presi
dent Gompers moved that JfcP.rlde's
election be made unanimous, but, a
deli-Bate objecting, that vote failed.
Mr. Gompers wired his successful
tompetltor as follows: "John Mclirlde,
Columbus, O. Congratulations upon
J'our election to the presidency of the
federation. None will be more loyal
than I to aid In making your adminis
tration successful. Samuel Gompers."
Vice presidents were elected as fol
lows: First, P. J. McOuire, Philadel
phia; second, James Duncan, Balti
more; third, Roady Kenehan, Denver;
fourth, T. J. Klderkln, Chicago. For
secretary, A. MoGralth, of Boston.
John H. I.cnnan, of New York, was the
unanimous choice of the convention for
the office of treasurer.
Mr. Gompers. speaking of the election
of MeBride, said to the convention that
lie felt grea'tly relieved from a burden
of enormous responsibility. The posi
tion as president had made him prema
turely old. He had stood for principle
and had fought & hard fight. Standing
thus, he preferred to be moved down
anther than surrender to opposition,
lie regretted this official action and
could recall nothing in his past ad
ministration for correction. He prom
ised the same devotion to the cause of
labor in the future as in the past. If
defeat had come til him in the Chicago
convention 'he would have gone out
broken hearted: now he left It with a
reputation as clear as the noon day sun.
(Applause.) He proposed to support
MeBride and would defend any attempt
to drag him down from his high posi
tion by the enemies of the American
Federation of Labor. He thanked the
delegates for their loyalty to the federa
tion and panted from them with the
test of wishes for a united effort In fa
vor of the labor cause.
New York wis selected as the place
for the holding of the next convention
and then a recess was taken.

., A new tunnel to catch what Is sup
posed to be the Lykens Valley coal vein,

The Delano shops are now working

All the mechanics employed at the

Calvin Pardee, the new Navigation
president, is a solid business man, a
careful financier and occupies a front
position in anthracite. He belongs to
a family of operators, his father's part
nershlp with J. J. Gllllngham Fell being
one of the oldest In the trade. While
Calvin was a member of the firm of A
Pardee & Co. his brother Frank suc
ceeded his father in this company
though he was superintendent of It for
over twenty-one years. For the past
twenty years he has been the lead
ing .member of the firms of Pardee,
Bros. & Co., Calvin Pardee & Co., and
Pardee, Sons & Co.
Statement of shipments of anthracite
coal for the month of November, com
piled by the Bureau of Anthracite Coal
Statistics from returns finished by mln-3
operators, not only shows a total out
put for the month of 4,493,281 tons,
which Is an Increase over the same
month last year of riS7,7i4 tons, but an
Increase in the stock of coal on hand
at tidewater shipping points of 142,641
tons, the total on Nov. SO being 874,900
tons, against 732,205 tons nt the end of
the preceding month. The heavy out
put last month was unquestionably due
to the desire of several of the compa
nies, including the Heading and the
,ehlgh Valley, to make as good show
ing In their annual reports as possible,
their respective fiscal years having ex
pired Nov. 30.

HI OF I
to our patrons:
WaKhliurn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat
rons that thev will this year hold to their usual custom
of milling S I RICTLY OLD W1IKAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers arc
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Oosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s Hour far above other
Jfew York Produce Market.
