changed his system and style of bat
It is bound to be a great battle.
Ritchie is one of the most underesti
mated champions the ring ever had.
This is partly his fault. Many fans
lost faith in him during"his long ab
sence from the ring and thought he
was not of championship caliber. He
disabused the minds of those who
saw him fight against Wolgast if they
held this opinion, but many still re
fuse to believe he is at par with some
of his predecessors.
White, too, is an underestimated
fighter. He is much more clever than
he ever has been given credit for, and
he has speed. The battle will be one
of wits as well as fists. The boys have
studied each other's systems so care
fully that either one may switch and
spring a big surprise.
One thing is certain. It ought to be
the fastest battle seen in this section
in a long time.

LETTER TO EDITOR
Editor Day-Book: The local unions
of hotel and restaurant employes in
St. Louis, Mo., together with the
Trades and Labor Assembly, are com
pelled to fight the wet interest of that
city in order to get recognition.
And at present it is a fight to the
bitter end in Missouri to bring the
employes under the protection of the
American Federation of Labor.
In Chicago the Saloon Restaurant
Keepers' Association is back of the
Henrici Co., endeavoring to break the
organization of the culinary workers
It was admitted on the witness
stand that John Vogelsang, president
of the Saloon Restaurant Keepers'
Association, was the man who had to.

Under the name of the United So

ing every labor measure everywhere.
In Springfield the "one day rest in
seven bill" was defeated by them; the
woman's ten-hour bill was carried to
the Supreme Court; the 9-hour hnl
was killed; the initiative, referendum
and recall was defeated by the same
outfit, and every other labor measure
under various names. "
Now this wet outfit is in power in
this city. Harrison uses the' police
powers and the Municipal Court,
while the State street stores, the
breweries, the National Enployer's
Association and the whisky trust
have united to stamp out this awful
peril of trades unionism. So organs
ized labor must take a stand right
now. The system of vampirism,
seven-day slavery and other evils
must be rooted out if it can only be
done by a bona fide trades union
So we say unionize or we will be
compelled to carry on a fight of a
political nature, and then we know
we can win, for we have the votes.
