Chicago, Sept. 20. - Requests for
reservations for world series games
in Chicago are coming into the local
club's headquarters at a rate which
surpasses any previous world's series
here. All requests for reserved tick
ets must be niade through the mail.
No personal requests are being hon
ored at the park. The Chicago White
Sox have to win only one of their re
maining seven games to clinch the
pennant, even though Cleveland
should win all its remaining games.
Reservations are being made for
three games, and each applicant is
restricted to four tickets for each
Thousands of letters with checks
inclosed were received in the regular
mail deliveries during the day and
hundreds of special delivery letters
were brought to the park.
A corps of Wiorkers has been busy
since early Friday opening the mail
and entering the requests in the or
der they are received.
President Comiskey said that from
present indications every reserved
seat will be sold in a short time.

Alexander the Grieat.
On Sept. 20, B. C. 331, Alexander
crossed Tigris and entered Assyria.
Conquest, massacres, subjulgation of
peoples, "beneficent assimilation"--
must it always go along thus? Is
there no other way for the march of
progress, asks a dismayed world in
1919. Alexander, surnaned "tlhe
Great," king of lMacedon, was the son
of Philipl of Macedon. and a direct
inheritor of the father's plans of
practical plunder, and his wild
mother's hot-blooded. imaginative
(dreams. Froln his famous teachler,
Aristotle. he imbilbed a passion for
Homer. He was early schooled in
war. IlF the absence of his father
he had defeated the Theban sacred
hand, annihilating it at the battle of
Clteeronea, 338 B. C. The assassi
nation of his father left Alexander
the only claimant to the crown. Again
the Thebans revolted. Alexander
marched to Thebes, razed it to the
ground, sparing only the house of
Pindar. In this latter "mercy" we
trace Alexander's love for the master
minds of Creek poetry. It. long hiad
been Philip's, his father's, plan to
unite the Greek race in a war against
the Persian empire. Tie Panhellenic
alliance against Persia was renewed
(from which stern Sparta stood
aloof). In 334 Alexander crossed
into Asia with a large army. He first
visited the site of Troy, and sacri
ficed to the Ilian Athena; assumbed
the shield believed to be that of
Achilles. and made offerings to tle
lHomerie dead. He met the Persian'
forces at the Granicus and routed
them, thereafter marching to the lib
eration of the Greek cities of Asia
:Minor, the same sites for which Pan
hellenic enthusiasm cries out today.
Russia. Mysia, Turkestan. Mlesopo
tamia, followed on his triumphalnt
subjugations. W'hen he crossed the
Tigris (just about where General Al-,
lenby crossed the other day) theIi
armly enconllltered great difficulties
frol tihe depth and force of the
stream, and the slippery nature of
tile river bed. Thile infantry marched
with their shields over their heads,
and thleir arms intertwined. Ice
marched on Jerusalem, the high
priest coming forth to greet him.
There followed India--the man over
ran the world. Then ciame Egypt.
where two remarkable actions stand
out as masterful--the first, tihei
founding of the city of Alexandria at
the canopic mouth of the Nile, and
the second, his visit--into the Libyan
desert-to the shrine of Jupiter Am
mon at the remote oasis of Siwah.
Here he was hailed as the seon of the,
God. He added Egypt to the splen
did terrors of his eclipsing shadow--
and the aitan wept for more worlds
to conquer! Returning to Babylon
in 323, he caroused deep one night
at the house of the favorite, Mlediius.
He developed a fever. The end caine
swiftly. And the arlny was ordered
to pass--one by one-through his
bedchamber to bid the dying world
master farewell. Alexander the
Great was buried in Alexandria, in
Heights of the Almna, ('rimnean War.
History should have written the
word, "CRIME-ean war." The imag-I
ination kindles forever at the hero
ism of man as displayed in the Cri
mean war. There is the Balaclava
charge. celebrated by Tennyson in
an immortal lyric. And the siege of
Sebastapol; and the Thin Red Line
at Inkerman when the Highlanders,
with charged bayonets, received the
onslaught of the Russian cavalry. It
was in the Crimean war that Flor
ence Nightingale ministered to the
wounded and dying. On Sept. 20,
185.1. the allies-England, France
aind Turkey--attacked the Russians
under :lenschikoff who, 40,000
strong were entrenched on the
heights of Alma, a stream flowing
into the Black Sea, and, after a con
test of four hours, drove them from
the ground with great loss.
The Crimea is the peninsula on the
north side of the Black sea and forms
part of the government of Russia.
'The bottom cause of the Crimean
war was Britain's fear of the aggres
sive power of the Russian emperor,
Nicholas I. Russian advance-it has
shed gallois of hunman blood. Eng
land feared for her India, as the eye
of Russia was set on Constantinople.
The plausible cause of the Crimean
war was a dispute between Russia
and France over the guardianship of
the Holy Place in Palestine, more
especially the Church of the Holy
Sepulchre. O religion, what crimes
have been committed ill thy namle!
Turkey was involved, as Russia as
sumelned a protectorate over Greek
Christians in Turkish dominions.
The Crimealn war was fervently fur
thered by that merefricious and taw
dry ruler, Napoleon Ill. of France.
England's interests had to uphold
t!he sultan of Turkey, a buffer state
between Russia and the open sea she
craved. Victory came to the allies
in the ('rimea after fearful winters
of fight and hardship and losses. The
Peace of Paris guaranteed the integ
rity of the Turkish empire, and the
nationalizing of the Black sea.
Again today the Crimea has swum
into the kaleidoscope of human af
fairs. No so very far from the rich
grain lands of the Ukraine- -the
richest in the world-it successively
has been the theater of the frightful
encounters of the Bolsheviki and the
Kolchak forces, and with a few other
uprisings and rages intermingled.
One day is hot, the next is hotter.
and the next is the hottest.--Fort

As 'Montana is the first state to

are willing to pay the prices demland

to carry on the defense of the Bulletin staff in the courts. Two
members of the staff have been fined a total of $9,500, on
chargec (f sedition, charges which were the direct result of
the effort of the corrupt political machine in Montana to put
a free press out of business. The cases have been appealed
to the State Supreme Court. It requires money to fight
these cases through the various courts; it takes money for
traveling expenses, etc., for transcripts of evidence and ste
nographers' hire. None of the money goes to pay lawyers'
fees, the lawyers engaged in the cases not only having donat
ed their services, but actually paying their own expenses.
The fines imposed and the expenses of fighting the cases
through the courts, are the result of the Bulletin Staff keep
ing the Bulletin alive, despite the order issued by the copper
interests-and if you believe the Bulletin has been of ser
vice to the cause of labor and the honest element generally,
you should help defray the expenses incident to the fight for
a FREE PRESS by contributing according to your means.
The need for funds is imperative and you should not delay
sending in your contributions.
