THE RCIi ANTON TRIBUNE TUESDAY MORNING. DECEMBER 18, 1894. ffi. M'BRIDEJS ELECTED Will Succeed Mr. Gompers ns Presi dent of Federation of Labor. NEXT MEETING IX NEW YOKK h'Ue Denver Convention Chooses the Prcs ident of lotted Mine Workers us Their Lender Gompers Hot ires lluppy und Hill liemuiu Patriotic. 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 majority vote. 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. INDUSTRIAL TOPICS. The new Maxwell. No. 20, breaker p.t Ashley will be opened to the public this afternoon. The rumored reduction In the Jersey Central coal crews on Tresckow branch has been enforced and three men In all have been suspended Indefinitely. , The new branch which Van W'Ickle recently constructed from Tresckow to his Coleralne colliery has been handed over to the Jersey Central company to keep In order. A Wilkes-Barre dispatch says that on Saturday next all the mines now in operation in the Wyoming and Lacka wanna regions will shut down work for the balance of the year. The report Is not credited in Scranton. ., A new tunnel to catch what Is sup posed to be the Lykens Valley coal vein, which was tapped in the No. 10 slope at HJeaver Brook over a year ago, has been etarted from the east No. 5 lift. It will be completed In ten weeks. The Delano shops are now working the busiest In their history. There are elxteen engines in the shops to be re paired, besides a number In the round Jiouse. The repair and frog shops are (working sixteen hours a day. All the mechanics employed at the Coleralne colliery received notice on Saturday to the effect that on and af ter that date their wages would be re- duced 25 cents a day. The reduction Is eald to be due to the dullness of the coal trade. The National Drilling company, of Scranton, on Saturday completed their contract of sinking an artesian well for the Diamond Water company, of Ilazle ton. The well has reached a depth of COO feet and flows sixty-five gallons of Water per minute. The return of W. K. Vanderbllt re- news Interest in the Lackawanna. It Is paid he Is not satisfied with President Sloan's attitude toward the trade, being so unreliable in the matter of restrlc tlon as to constitute a disturbing factor. He has Instructed his brokers to add to his holdings of Lackawanna which he thinks Is another way of improving his Beading securities. 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 HUNDRED 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 brands. Jfew York Produce Market. By the United Trcsa. New York, Dec. 17.
