COMING BACK TWICE
Kid Gleason Isn't Big, and He Was No Great Shakes
as a Big League Pitcher, but He Has Reached the Top
Rung on the Baseball Lad der.
HAMILTON TELLS HOW THE "KID" DID IT
ly H. C. HAMILTON
(United 'Press Staff ('orrespondent.)
(('opyright, 1919. by United Press.)
It was Harry Wright, famous old
manager of the Philadelphia club in
tih Nat tial league, who stopped
Gleason's too sudden rise to promi
nonce in the major leagues. Having
lifted the youngster from WVilliams
plrt. .'he saw possibilities in thlle rough
and ready, halppy-minded pitcher,
and, while hie didn't hold himn for
Ihiladelphtia. he did send him to
Scranton, Pa., there to exhibit his
skill until the big league call should
sound again for him.
And it wasn't long before that call
was healrd. Such aggressiveness and
ha'rd-headed comlllon-sense as Glea
son possessed wasn't going to stand
for miintor league work very long.
Gleason went back to the major
leaguies before the year had passed
t1and got into enoough ball games to
give hilll it record of having won
seven mand lost 17 gallmes.
Not muclh of a record, the fan says
off-hand. Quite truei'. Gleason never
itadel a startling rec:ord as a pitcher,
but he had porsonality; he had
ibrains, and was aggressive to such a
degree that his very presence ont a
hall c('lul was a great asset. His bat
tinig at this time wasn't enough to
give hiiii any conllsidleration to speak
of. As ia matter of fact, he hit only
.:*.5 for his first active season as a
iig leaguter-a recurd surpassed or
lequa ledl nowadays by many pichers,
no1(e1( of whomn a1re considered fancy
wivildters of the willow.
N\ever fronm that time on has Kid

big league baseball. The 1918 sea

lt even" tlhat war'-llrnll and shortened

iwo'E si"veral seasons when he did
IIilave work along the coaching
lies ur inl the box or at second base,
but liote has been no inactive sea
son1 in the true sense of the mean
ing, for baseball has been Gleason's
meat and bread for a long time. He
lives the game now, throwing his
full energy into this and nothing
In 1889 Gleason still was with the
Philadelphia club and his record was
about the same as in the preceding
year. He won eight and lost 13
games, . batting only slightly more

phia.!. e he was sold to st.

Bankrupt City Unable to

Evening's Council Meet

It is reported that the fire and po
lice departments have threatened to
"walk off the job," unless the
"dinero" is produced forthwith. It
appears that the police and firemen
have discovered what the common
garden variety of wage slave have
been proclaiming for years-tllat in
order to live they must have money
to purchase the eats which their
masters have stored in huge quanti
It certainly is tough on the cops,
after doing their "bit" in subjecting
the working stiffs who had the temer
ity to protest against hunger and
want, to have to endure privation be
cause the bankers refuse to cash
It is not thought, however, that the
cops will be permitted to suffer long,
as a way will be found to take care
of them, the masters realizing that
they must have some one to do the
clubbing in case the wage slaves in
timate that they are hungry.
The firemen also are in want, but
the prospects for them are not so
good, as they are not considered by
the masters as essential as the police
in these griping times of democracy.
The mayor of Butte has issued
a call for a special meeting of the
city council late this afternoop, for
the purpose of considering what can
be done in paying off the members of
the fire department and other city
employes who are unable to receive
pay for their services. The banks

TWO LIBERTY BOND
ISSUES FOR THIS YEAR
(Special United Press Wire.)
Washington, Feb. 7.-Records of
the treasury department and appro
priations committee of the house and
senate show why congress is about
to enact the biggest tax bill in its
history, a $6,000,000,000 revenue
measure that will take an average of
$60 this year and $40 next year from
every individual of the nation. The
records -show the government will
cost the people $08,000,000,000 this
fiscal year and $10,000,000,000 in
the 1920 fiscal year.
The tax bill before congress raises
only one-third of the amount re
quired. The only way to get the re
mainder is in bonds, and this means
