he is due for a pasting this time.
Unless Beckett is an awful bum,
he should dispose of McGourty in

Seventeen years ago today the
fight fans of the world were as ex
cited as if the heavyweight cham-I
pionship was scheduled to he de-.
cided. James J. Corbett and Kid
MlcCoy--who several years ago came
into prominence through his arrest
by Belgian authorities on the charge
of being implicated in a jewel theft i
--.-were matched to meet. in New York i
that night. Aug. 30, 1900. Coraett
had lost his title to "Ruby Robert,"
who in turn had been laid low by
the great Jeffries. The latter had
also administered a defeat to "Gen
tleman Jim" just a few months be
fore. There was no title at stake,
as McCoy had become too heavy for
the legitimate middleweiglt title,
and Corbett certainly could not com
pete for that crown. Nevertheless,
the battle was advertised as foi "the
championship of the world," and in
a way this was true, since it brought
together the two cleverest ring geu
crals and most scientific boxers in
the history of pugilism. Some writers
have alleged that the bout was a
fake, but there seems no basis for
that charge, other than alleged "con
fessions" that were themselves prob
ably fakes. There was an old grudge
between Corbett and McCoy and both
were out for victory, blo-o-od and
r-r-revenge. Both claimed to be the
real masters of scientific fisticuffs,
and they were intensely jealous of
each other. Suspicious circumstances
surrounded many of McCoy's bat
tles. but in meeting Corbett the
"Kid" was certainly bent on winning,
if possible. Over two years before
a Corbett-McCoy match had been ar
ranged to take place in Buffalo, but
it was called off owing to threats of
officiil interference. Each of the
fighters accused the other of "crawl
ing," and a wordy warfare followed
until Aug. 30, 1900, when the ene
mies climbed into the ring to fight
it out. The battle lasted but five
rounds, but those five innings were
worth to the spectator more than a
hundred rounds of ordinary fight
ing. Lightening had little in the way
of speed to teach the two men, and
the quickest eye could hardly fol
low their movements. For five rounds
the ring was a kaleidoscope of flash
ing white bodies and smacking
gloves. The fighters were as light.

WALL STREET VIEW OF
HIIH COST OF LIVING
(By United Press.)
New York, Aug. 30.-investigators 1
who are looking for the "guilty
party'" responsible for the high cost
at living in the United States will
never find him in America, accord
ing to Wall street financiers.
A correspondent of the United
Press interviewed several of the
biggest bankers of the country to ask
them for their iueas on the higly cost
of living. Though the financial men
refused to allow their names used,
they were free in their opinions.
The general concensus is that the
man who started the war is responsi

are merely paying their part of the

permanently or to any extent. As
soon as we begin to produce more,
so that the surplus on the market

will come down. Until we produce
more, and until Europe produces
more, prices will remain high.
"Wall street is not surprised at
the very high prices and the unrest
all over the country. The financial
interests anticipated and expected
this trouble. Similar disturbances
have occurred after every war of im

following the Civil war. The only

Silver Bow Trades and Labor Council
At the regular meeting of the Silver lHow Trades and labor assembly last night the
following communication was endorsed:
Butte, August 4, 1919.
To All Affiliated Unions: E |1 i E 'ý lj
The Silver Bow Trades and Ibabor clnllil, realizing the magnificent fight being waged
by the Butte Daily 3Bulletinl, whichl is l hle official organ of this body, for its existence,
against the combined opposition of hig corporations and profiteering business men, and
thoroughly understanding that this p] 'er1 is positively the only mediumn of publicity through
which labor unions are at liberty 10 cxllprcss t heir side of any controversy that may arise
with the employing interests of this (claonllltity, earnestly hopes thlat the paper may secure
the support which it so richly 'deserves.
That the persons in charge of this pu1bl ication may be free to devote their entire time
and energies to the interests of t le workers, instead of a greater or less portion of it in
securing funds to meet current; expenses, is a very important thinig, and with this idea
in view this council recommends to all affiliated unions and union men in general who
have the welfare of the labor movement at heart:
First, that all unions who feel so inclined agree to donate a stated sum per month,
no matter how small, and at once inform the Bulletin management of the action taken.
Second, that members of locals, individually, do likewise, if the organization to which
they belong does not feel that it cares to act in the matter.
One affiliated union has already agreed to pay $30 per month to the Bulletin, and, as
the deficit will not exceed $2,500 per month, there should ble absolutely no reason why
the working men and women of Montana, after having established a daily in this city,
should be deprived of the privilege of having an organ which can and will refute any un
just statement, made by the corporation papers concerning them.
If 10,000 workers in this great state would assess themselves but 25 cents each, per
month, we would have a daily that the exploiting interests well might fear, and, as it is,
Butte is a cleaner city than for years.
The Bulletin started the fight against the p)rofiteers.
The Bulletin exposed crooked elecltion methods.
The Bulletin was the direct cause of the public market.
The Bulletin made it jpossible to buy produce direct from farmers.
The Bulletin exposed and secured the conviction of a crooked chief of detectives, when
the corporation papers laughed at its efforts.
The Bulletin is fighting at all times the battle of the workers, and if its management is
willing to remain t1rue to the cause of labor and suffer imprisonment and other forms of
persecution that the paper may perform the mission for which it was intended, the least
, the laboring peophle of Montana can do is to furnish the sinews of war, which will be a
very small amount per capita when apIportioned among the many.
The council suggests that you decide upon an amount that will in no way distress either
an individual or :an organization, and then send in that sum promptly on the date agreed
In this way the question will be solved easily and as time rolls along we will more and
more understand that "the pen is mightier than the sword.''
These statements shall be given to the Butte Daily Bulletin, under the signature of the
officers of this organization, with Lull permission to use them, within the limits set forth,
for the purpose of in anty way assisting the future prosperity of the said Bulletin.
