,On the Firing Line at Caldwell
(Special Correspondent of the Bulletin.)
Bleginning today, the Iulletin will publish a continued series of
arlticles detailing the eixperiences and accomplishments of the RIocky
M3ountain Rifle club teamI , at the national rifle matches at Caldwell, N. J.
The articles will be written by Harry Overand, of the Bulletin staff, a
nIenlber of the tceulil and one of the crack rifle shots of the inter
In the first of his series. printedl herewith, ilr. Oeranl intelrest
ingly describes his journey fromi Butte to Caldwell and gives a graphic
tlescriptioin of incidenllts in connection with the recent iraCe riots ill
('hicago. It, will be news to Butte shllooters to learn that l1i. I)verand.:il
atii( others of thie Moilntanal shooters were under fire from the Ilacklis
whiile passing througlh the "blahck belt" on their way to New Jersey. The
first, article of the series follows:
Caldwell, N. .., Aug. 1. - --This
article, while the heading would
suggest it dealt with the shooting at
the national matches, niay wander
in various directions as the inclina
tion presents itself and as my
mnemory is refreshllened oin some par
ticular incident since I left Butte on
July 27 to attend these matches. In
the first place aii the boys from
tiutte desire to publicly expre -ss their
alppreciation of the many contribu
tions to the fund making it possible
for six members of the Rocky Moun
lain Rifle club to make the long trip
and return fronm this year's shoot.
We will not try to describe every
thing we have seen since leaving
home, but will briefly touch what
seemed of particular interest. Jack
lDerville and the writer left Butte
a few days in advance of thie Mon
tana team, stopping at a small town
in Illinois for a three-day visit with
the writer's relatives. Our stay in
Plymouth. Ill., was pleasantly spent
and many points of interest in the
ticinity were visited, notably the big
dam across the Mississippi at Keo
The heat was about all we could I
stalnd as you readily realize that a
eirson from Butte is up against it
in the hot clime of the middle states.
However, we were fortunate in hav
ing it rain the second day in Illinois
and a sudden drop in temperature.
Arrived in Chicago Sunday, Aug.
1, at 2:50 p. m., and decided to see
a real ball game if possible. Jumped
into a taxi and arrived at the ball
park in time to see eight innings be-i
tween the Cubs and Philadelphia.
Some game up to the fatal seventh
inning, when Chicago got a batting
rally, scoring four runs and putting
the game on ice.
Fired On in ('hicago.
Pulled out of the riot city at
10:30 that night over the Eric rail
road for Caldwell. Our train passed
'hrough the colored section near the
stockyards, where most of the riot
ng took place. Our train was fired
slpon but by whom we were unable
to tell or unable to return the fire
is we could not see anybody to shoot
it. Shots would be fired from cross
streets and alleys as we i;; cd by.
Fortunately no one was injured,
most of the shots falling just in the
rear of the observation car as tile
train rushed on.
A couple of riflemen on this train
hadt visited tile riot district during
the day and had seen what was go
ng on. The colored section is lo
cated near the stockyards on the
south side of Chicago. Most of the
colored people work in and about
the stockyards and had been im
ported from the south during war
times to relieve the labor shortage.
Some 150,000 colored people are
crowded into this district. Ill feel
ing had existed for sonme time and
seemed to have reached the break
ing point thli Sunday prey ious to our
arrival. 'Trouble started at a beach
swimminglt resort where a line was
strung dividing the whItites and
blacks. A negro was attempting to
invade white territory on a raft and
was stoned by white bathers. He
was drowned. IThe blacks organ
ized, coming over the line where
they took a white bather and beat
him to death. This was the starting
of a general riot in which between
20 and 30 were killed and sonle 300
injured inside of a few hours.
The riot spirit spread to the city
proper but not to such an extent as
occurred in the colored district.
Thursday Illinois state troops were
.talled out and by the Sunday follow
ing, the day we arrived. S,000 men
were patrolling the district. I talked
to several eye witnesses and from
what I learnled the savage beast was
aroused in inany instances. Last
Sunday about 12:30 a crowd of
blactks closed in on two militiainen,
so I was informed, and overpowered
them. Took their guns away from

a distanice of about fi\e miles.
Mlake Honle in Mud.
This range ;nd the entire camp
had been flooded by a dam bursting
some time ago. The effects of the
flood anti evidence of the same were
not hard to find. We were met by
an officer who said he would take
us to our assignment. After wading
through mud and water a distance!
of some 300 yards we were told that
this was where we would spent the
next 30 days. The officer had to l
consult a blue print to find our
location. We received permission to
select:our location a little further to
the right, but if anything, no better.
After getting tents, cots and bedding
we pulled and hauled wet canvas
and water-logged mattresses a dis
tance of abott"' 500 yards. BIen
Holter and I suddenly decided to
visit Newark, some 12 miles taw ay
after a couple of hours of this
strenuous exercise. Most of our
team not having arrived as they had
gone over to New York fromn Jersey
City. we thought we wouldl go in
for the night and return the next
dlay when more help would be on
hand. We entered the Leetch Cup
match, however, before leaving,
which was scheduled to open its first
stage at 800 yards Wednesday. Aug.

The next morning saw us on the

The Montana state team out of

down on the 1.000-yard range in a
25-mile wind. Ben Holter of White

Staples and D. A. McClure of Butte
finished in 81st and l84tih place re

Capt. \W. It. Richards of the Win

Yesterday we entered three four
man teams from Montana in the
State Leanm match. We were far
from shooting condition on account
of having had but little sleep and
poor substance in our stomachs to
shoot upon. We conceded the matcn
to Wyoming before a shot had been
fired and the writer's judgment was
correct as 1 understand Wyoming's
first teem was the winer, although
not officially announced. The all

comnposed of Derville, Griffing, Yob

members of the staff have been
fined a total of $9,500, on charges
of sedition, charges which were
the direct result of the effort of
the corrupt political machine in
Montana to put a free press out

appealed to the State Supreme
Court. It requires money to fight
these cases through the various
courts; it takes money for travel
