San "Francisco, Jan. 22. A vaudeville
war between the Orpheum and- William
Morris - circuits, raging . through ' the
country from the Atlantic; to the pa

the failure of the - opposing . interests
to, effect an agreement .

the Orpheum management might have
a clear field. Morris rejected the offer.
He said Beck then offered him "time",

this proposal also. Beck denies that

isfied to remain; outside the Orpheum
fold In the; west, believing ' that his
attractions are strong enough to draw
attendance even to vacant lots.

Indianapolis, Jan. 22. A division of
the United Mine Workers of - America,
resulting from the bitter recrimination
over the reelection of President Thomas
L. Lewis, . is'; not- expected to lend
strength to the organisation's project
for amalgamation with the Western
Federation of Miners.
William Oreen, of Ohio, who
was defeated by Lewis for the
presidency of the mine -workers,
questioned .the vote given Lewis
Lewis came back with a counter charge
that there; had been fraudulent voting
for Oreen. , This has divided the con
vention into bitter factions and brought
out the animosity that has been latent
since the election of Lewis.
Lewis' committee of mine workers Is
to meet a committee from the Western
Federation of Miners, of which Presl
dent Moyer of the federation is chair
man. . '
In the uproar that followed the Oreen
and Lewis recriminations, Francis Fe-
nan, an anti-Lewis delegate, refused to
sit down, and Lewis ordered htm eject
ed. Several friends rushed to Feehan's
defense, but Feehan ended the disturb
ance by resuming his chair. For sev
era! minutes tlte hall was in an up
roar, and delegates almost came to
blows in various portions of the room.
Lewis declared that the action of the
Oreen faction had the appearance of a
deliberate plan to break, up the convention.
