Jim's Fifty-third Sumnner.
Just before the melancholy days
each year we celebrate the natal clay
of our ever interesting friend, James
J. Corbett. Authorities disagree
whether Corbett was born in San
Francisco or vice versa, for some 1
claim it is "Gentleman Jimn" who put
the metropolis on the map. At any i
rate, no event except perhaps the
fire, ever gave the golden gate city
the publicity that Jim's birth has
given it. It was Sept. 1, 1866, that
Jim entered the IU. S. A. via the
golden gate and announced to his
mother, who was preseut at his birth.
that he didn't like to have people
stand in front of him. At that very
moment., on the other side of North
America there was an eight-year-old
boy by the name of Johnnie Sullivan
running about the streets of Boston.
Some 26 years later the clever lad
of the west and the mighty man of
the east were to meet in the far
south. New Orleans, for the all
American battle tlhat was to end the
career of one, and raise the other to
the greatest popularity ever attained
by any boxer.
As a professional boxer. the con
queror of Sullivan brought about a
return to the old Mace style of clever,
sleedy work, in which brain counts
for as much as durability and slug

not depended for his laurels on his
pugilistic reputation, as did Sullivan,
the hero of "Honest Hearts and Will

Corbett is now in his 53rd year,
and it is still pleasing to inote that
Jim still enjoys public respect.
Though Fitz and Jeff have both made

Jim has always been clean in the ring

MAJilN TO TAKE
THE EASY PATH
(By United Press.)
New York, Sept. 1.---Jimmy Bron
son, the loquacious manager of Bo1)
Martin, heavyweight pugilistic cham
pion of the A. E. F., doesn't claim
the world's championship for his
protege, statements to the contrary
In a talk with the United Press a
short time ago, Bronson freely ad
mitted that his heavyweight probably
is a long way from the Iheavyweight
"But," said James, "within two
years Martin will heat Dempsey. Re
member what L tell you. Right now
he is a better man than Dempsey, but
I am not foolish enough to believe
that he knows enough about fighting
to go in and defeat Dempsey.
"I want to show the public what
this boy can do, and I'll do it in a
legitimate way. We are not begging
for fights. We will take what comes
along and we'll march straight to the
championship. Every member of the
A. E. F. believes this, and will back
his feelings in the matter."
IBronson expresses himself as op
posed to the established (method of
boxing since lie has seen wlat was
done in France by boxers. lie is a,
Ilromlloter and(I referee of long experi
ence, having conducted high class
boxing in Joplin, Mto., for many
years. He said he was unwilling to
believe when he went to France as a
Y. I. C. A. athletic director that the
time would ever come when he would
favor two-minitll rollnds over the
established method of sending men
over the three-minute route.
"I want Martin to fight under A.
E. F. rules if such a thing is possible
in this country,' he said. "I be
lieve it makes better fighting. They
go two-minute rounds, with a min
ute rest. It makes for action and
eliminates the stallting. The number
of rounds could be increased to ex
tend the time of a go."
Bronson exhibited a photograph of
Martin taken after he had won the
inter-allied championshlip. It showed

The A. B. C. of the Plumb Plan
What Is the Plumb Plan?
It is a plan for the public ownership and the democracy in the cointrol
of the railroads.
Who Has Endorsed it?
The two million organized railroad employes of America; and the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, apliroving the principle of government owner
ship, has instructed its executive committee to co-operate with the officers
of the railroad internationals in their effort. It also has been endorsed by
several farmers' organizations.
How Does It Propose to Buy the Roads?
By issuing government bonds with which to pay focit-he legitimate pri
vate interests in the railroad industry.
How Does It Propose to Operate the Roads?
By a board of 15 directors, five named by the president, to represent
the public; five elccted by the operating officers; five elected by the classi
Does This Mean Government Operation?
No; it is operation by a board in which those having the responsibility
have also the authority. It is superior to government operation because it
prevents control by an inefficient bureaucracy; and is true democracy since
it gives the men engaged in the industry a voice in its management.
What Becomes of the Surplus?
After operating expenses are paid, and fixed charges are met, including
the interest on outstanding government securities, the surplus is divided
equally between the government and the men. The employes' portion is
to be divided between the manuagerial and classified employes, the former
receiving double the rate received by the latter class. This is not a profit.
since the corporation has no capital. What the men receive is a dividend
Is This a Bonus System?
No, it is giving those who increase production a share of the results
Sthliir increased effl'rt has produced; and this share is theirs for as long
u as they are actually in the service, and is not forfeitable.
Why Do Operating Officials Receive the Larger Rate of
Because it se'vces as a greater stimunlus to tile group with the most. r(e
sponsibility. And since the operating officials would lose dividends if
wages were increased it acts automatically to prevent collusion between
labor directors and the operating directors to outvote the public's directors
in raising wages beyond a reasonable level. The chief argument against
the plan is that the Iublic loses control of its own property, and that the
men in charge cannot be prevented from combining to pay themselves ex
tortionate wages. This method of sharing dividends sets up a natural bar
rier against collusion.
Is This the Only Protection for the Public?
No, the rate-making power remains with the interstate cotmmerce com
mission, and if wages were raised so high that rates had to be increased,
lihe commission could refuse to change them, and shippers might appleal to
the courts for re(dre:s. If the operation by the directors results in a dc
ficit, congress can revoke their charter.
Does This Difference in Dividends Create Hostility Between
Officials and Men?
No, because without harmony between them neither group can earn
dividends. An official in working for his own dividend is working for the
dividend of his subordinates, for one cannot gain unless all gain.
Does the Plan Assure a Decrease in Rates?
It provides that when the government's share of the surplus is 5 per
tl cent or miiore of the gross operating revenue. rates shall be redlucied accord
- ingly to absorb the amount the government receives. For instance: If
the entire surplus one year is $500,000,000, and this is 10 per cent of lihe
f gross operating revenue, the government receives $250,0)00,000. And be
cause this is 5 per cent, rates are decreased 5 per cent. See what follows:
1 Without new economies or new business the profits the next year would
be only $250i.,00,000, and the employes and the governmentt would re
fi ceive only half the amountt of the year before. But decreased rates mean
more business: and, also, the reduction in dividends would stimulate the
employes to improve their operation by applying better method:i. So the
tendency is to assure constantly decreasing rates, to add to the volume of
business, and to give the most efficient service human ingenuity and de
votion can provide. Decreased rates mean cheaper commodities; and so,
Ihrough the effectiveness of the railroads, the purchasing power of money
is increased, not only for the railroad nian, but for every wage earner and
What Does the Government Do With its Share of the Surplus?
It invests it in improvenient.s and extensions, thus adding to the value
of the railroads without adding to the fixed charges. It retires the out
standing bonds, thus reducing the fixed charges, Ultimately the public
has its railroad service at cost.
Does the Government Pay for All Extensions.
No. the comnmunity henefited must pay if it can; if it is able to pay all,
the building of the exteLnsion is obligatory. If it only pays part, the gov
ernment pays tle remlllainder. blut only makes the extension as it deems
wise. And where the general public and not ia local community would be
henefited, the governmlent pays the whole bill.
How Are Disputes Between Officials and Men Adjusted?
t 1y boardsl, to swhich the operating officials elect five miembers aind the
nimn, five mmeothers. In case of failure to reach an adjustment, the case is
I appealed to the directors.
Who Determines the Rate of Wages?
The board of directors.
Who Supervises the Purchase of the Roads?
A purchasing board, comnlposed of the interst;ate colllierce commelission
and three directors of the new government corporationll, one director from i
Who Decides the Value of the Private Interest in the Railroads?
S'The courtls. It is a judic'ial question, and is to be answered only after
an examlinatioll of the charters of tlthe existinlg cotmil panies, the laws under
7 which they were iersated, and the manner in whi ih the company has lived

Will the Public Have to Pay for Watered Stock?

BAIL Is WANTED ..
WITHOUT FAIL FOR THE
IMEN WHO ARE IN JAIL
HIIundreds of workers are literally rotting in the jails of this country
because of their activity in the cause of Labor. Many of these victims
of the world-wide class war are awaling trial-and have been wailing
for many weary months for the speedy trial guaranteed them by the
United Slates Constitution. O'thers were tried and sentenced to terms
ranging iroln one to twenty years during the period of war hysteria,
and appeals in their cases are now being taken from King Capital drunk
to King Capital sober.
Some of the prisoners have escaped by death, others are dying, many
have contracled tuberculosis and otlher loathsome diseases, and all are
sulfering unlold agony froto close con!'inement in the fetid atmosphere,
from insrnitalry and unhealthy sulrrollundings, from poor and insutficient
foot , and f'rom ilnhtman trealtment accorded them by brutalized guards.
Past attempts to secure bail I'or all of these workers in jail have not
been attended wil.th great si.ccess because of the lack of system.. In

get the niecessary anmount they returned what had been collecled, thus
mnaking their entire efforts fruitless. This was the condition facing the
delegates fr'om all the western district organizations of the Industrial
Workers of the World when they met in conference on July 3 and 4 in
Scuttle. The delegates solved the problem by an utl'ailing means
A Bail and Bond Committee was elected to systematize the work of
collecting bail and a nation-wide drive has been started to secure the
loan of cash, Liberty Bonds andl property sufficient to gain the release
of all class war prisoners. With practically no advertising Six Thou
s;nd IDollars were raised in the first five days. More than ,Two Hun
dred Thousand Dollars are needed to release those ntow being held for
their Labor activity.
Siuis of Five Dollars and up are accepted as loans, and all cash, Lib

Only those who have been pIroved loyal and trustworthy are being

loans on demand in case lpersons who have made them are forced to
leave the couintry or have other reasons for making a withdrawal.
Bail will be used to release specified persons where that is desired,
but otherwise the release will take place by a blind drawing of names,
