HERRERA-SANTRY BETTING IS BEGUN SAID $100 HtAS BEEN PUT UP AT EVEN MONEY-ANACONDA TO ,BACK THE EASTERNER. HERRERA'S HAND STILL SORE Probable That Mexioan Will Find Santry the Hardest Nut He Has Ever At tempted to Eat Kernel Of. 'Aurelio Herrera will have his hands full when he tackles Eddie Santry, a tall, wil lowy lightweight of much renown, at Ana conda Thursday night. That the Mexican is up against the hardest battle of his career there can be no doubt, and If he wins it will not be until he has brougat into play all his knowledge of the Queens berry game, for Mr. Santry is indeed a pastmaster at the art of fisticuffs and an opponent that commands great respect from the best fighters of the present day. Over at Anaconda the Chicago lad has won the hearts of all the sports and they will back him to win with good hard dol lars of the realm. He has trained himself carefully and conscientiously and is in superb form, and his manager, Teddy Mur phy, expresses the opinion that Santry is going to win, and he also states that his condition is better than for some time. Each morning bantry takes a co-mile run on the road and in the afternoon he punches the bag and boxes with Jack Clif ford and several local boxers, and in addi tion to this he skips the rope and does other exercises that last mnore than an hour and a half. Prior to coming to Montana Santry had been conditioning himself at Mfilwaukee and his physical shape could not be improved upon. On the other hand, w'hile the Mexican is said to be in good shape, it is a well known fact that he injured his hand while training at Pleasant Beach, near Seattle, some time ago, and he renewed the injury in a boxing bout with husky Billy Woods at Hastings while training for the bout with Louie Long at Vancouver recently. In that dight it is certain that Herrera snust have injured the sore hand again, for everyone knows how aiss manager insisted on the contest with Santry being post poned from last Friday to Thursday night to enable the boy to rest his hand. Wise sporting men who understand the condi tioning of a fighter believe that Herrera's band will bother him considerably in the bout with Santry, and many believe this misfortune will increase Santry's chances of victory to a large extent. Herrera must be in the best possible condition for this contest, and no one realizes it more than he does. The Mexi can has studied the dope on his next op ponent carefully and he finds that it will be necessary for him to be just right when the gong sends them on their so-round journey. This may be the last contest in which .lerrera will figure in this state for some time, as it has been said that his manager intends taking him East soon after his bout with Santry to match him against the best men in his class in that section. A big crowd will surely greet these two ring stars when they face each other, and from all accounts there will be much feel ing in the audience, as Santry will have all the Anaconda sports rooting for him, while the Butte crowd will applaud their favorite. Teddy Murphy and Biddy Bishop had a talk over the 'phone this morning and they decided on Dune McDonald for referee. Mlurphy asked Bishop to name half a dozen men and he would , elect one from the number, and Bishop mentioned Langdon, Dune McDonald, Billy Nolan, George Iessler and Mose LaFontise, and it was then decided to take Dune McDonald. His appointment will meet with the approval of the general public. It was reported this morning that sev eral bets had been made on the probable outcome of the contest. One bet was made by a prominent attorney of $Soo even and several smaller bets were reported at even money. Over in Anaconda it is said that Santry will rule a slight favorite in the betting. The management has decided to start the first preliminary promptly at 8:30. The "Herrera flyer" will ,eave the depot for Anaconda at 7::S and will return imme. i.iately after the contest.

Sacramento, Cal., Oct. a6.-M-anager Visher of the Sacramento baseball team arrived in this city last night. He says that he Intends to appear before the chamber of commerce at the end of the season and make them the proposition to form a corporation and take charge of his baseball team, as he was tired of carry ing such a heavy financial burden. He believes it will be a good advertisement for the oity to retain the team and says that he does not care whether the chamber of commerce retains him as manager or not, so that they relieve him of the team. So far as he is concerned he is out of it at the end of this season. tNEW SCHEME IN ATHLETICS BY ASSOCIATED PRESS, 'Chicago, Oct. a6.-The faculty of the University of Chicago is endeavoring to inaugurate a system of athletics, under which there will be no paid admissions to contests in which the university athletes compete.

SIDE LIGHTS ON THE DAY'S SPORT NEWS Frank Dunn, who has fought several battles in Butte, is out with a challenge to any middleweight in the state. Dunn says he would prefer to meet Jerry McCarthy and would go to Salt Lake if necessary to secure tie match. A new football team has been organized in Butte which proposes administering the hot wallops to any eleven in the state. It starts out under the name of the Butte Athletics and is said to be as fast a bunch as can be found anywhere. The average weight of the team is t6s pounds, but this only tells half of the trouble some luck less eleven will have when it runs up against that wall of iron. The boys that compose the team are mostly old high school players, who have graduated from that institution. The line has been strengthened in a number of places by the addition of a few stars. This is the way they answer to roll call: H. Mills, manager; W. Green, captain; B. Cohen, Carl Griffith, Joe Early, Harry Henline, J. Twohill, P. J. Corcoran, A. Sampson, C. Denin, S. Baer, H.

"Corbett," to sllustrate the former champion's kindness and generosity to those in hard luck, tells the following story: "Every man from California felt it his right to tell Jim his troubles the moment he struck hard luck. They used to come in by the dozen every day, and Jim never allowed them to go hungry. After a while patience ceased to be a virtue. Jim did not want to be unkind to them, but they were coming too fast. "He finally struck an idea. Some of his relatives were returning to San Fran cisco in a private car, and as they would not use up all the berths, there was room for several more people. VWell. Jim went around among those who looked the most needy and gave them tnis kind of a talk: "Now, if any of you fellows want a chance to get back home to San Fran cisco I can tell you how to do it. Some of my folks are going home and there is plenty of room for a few more. Who wants to go?" "There was a chorus of 'I do.' "When the car started for San Fran cisco it was crowded. I guess there were eight or ten who took :.,vantage of the offer." Arthur Duffy, the 'Georgetown sprinter, is apparently not satisfied with having run ton yards in 9 3-5 seconds, a fifth faster than any other person. On several occa sions recently he has unsuccessfully tried to clip a fraction from this mark. But now Duffy purposes to cover the distance in better time, and to this end announces he will rower his record at St. Louis next spring with the aid of a wind shield. His ,dea is to have a shield similar to those used by the harness horses who recently made new records paced by an automobile. Jack Munroe is still an unknown quan tity with the glove things, but he can play football. And if able to more than hold his own on the gritiron. why not in the ring? Conmpared to football, boxing'is fireside and slippers. Eddie Hanlon says he is ready to take on "Young Corbett." No more ready than "Corbett" is. Wait. Eddie, until the chanm pion disposes of Ben Jordan. Then your turn will come. Poor little George Dixon has been whipped again. lie never knew he was beaten when he was the champion, and not even now that he is old and worn out in harness can he realize that he ought to stop. Jack McCormick declares he is going to quit the ring. He ought to have come to this decision before he ever entered it. Tommy Ryan. the sick man of pugilism, has his paste brush out again. Tomaly never overlooks the Ryan three sheets. He says now that he wants to fight Jack O'Brien, and will even go over to England to do it. Provided, of course,, some one puts up the ferry ticket and incidentals. FIGHT PROMOTING IS A RISKY GAME TOM O'ROURKE SAYS THE HAPPY MANAGER HAS NOT ALWAYS A LEAD-PIPE CINCH. Tom O'Rourke, who has probably ar ranged more boxing matches than most anen, has this to say.regarding the proper procedure therefor: "Engage a hall. Ask the proprietor how many people it holds, and cut his statement squarely in two. "Engage a wind-up. This will cost con siderable money in postage, telegrams, etc., and if one of the fighters is from out-of-town he prepared to be stuck for round-trip tickets, invariably for two, as fighters are timid birds, and fear to go more than so feet alone. "Prepare to be stuck up the day be fore the fight by a telegram explaining that one of the wind-up men has broken his hand. "Book preliminaries. This will cost something, but not much, in carfares and postage, and will make enemies for life of every manager whose cheap boys are not booked for the first show. "Give orders for printing of cards and tickets, and hire a press agent. 'More money. "Engage doormen, ushers and other em ployes. 'More money. "Buy the gloves. More money. "Discover that the stage of your hall won't do for a ring, and build a platform ring. When you get through with the aforesaid ring your pocketbook will look like a canoe paddle, but don't mind that. It's all in the game. "Find out that neither fighter has posted any forfeit, and be ready to receive the hearse hoot when you suggest suck a pro cedure. "Send out complimentarles, and re ceive word from the alderman that he must have 5o more, and from the police captain that he wants aS. "Give the show. "Count up. Maybe you will take in $goo.

THE SAND IS THE SMOKIR'S PROTrOTION d RAWSON HAS SHOD MANY CHAMPIONS OHIO MAN KNOWS HOW TO AID A IFLYFWlITH SHOES MADE FOR W PECULIARITIES. Probably no horseshoer in the country has attended to the feet of more cele bratetd trotters and pacers than W. E. Rawson, who for many years has had a shop adjacent to the famous trotting course at Glenville, O. With the excep tion of .Major Delmar and Prince Alert, the Ohioah has shod practically all of the later day champions. Cresecus, Lou I)il Ion. Star Pointer, Dan Patch, Joe Pointer, Alin, John A. McKerron and others have beenri in the Glenville shop time and time again. For three years Rawson traveled with Cresceus and Star Pointer, and shod the trotting and pacing champions before going their record miles. L.ou Dillon, the trotting queen, has been shod repeatedly this year by Rawson, and it is said to be ma;inly due to the wedge shoe of the Glen ville farrier, who induced Mr. IBillings to let hit place themn on the hind feet of his nlare, that Lou Dillon is saved from tiring at the end of a record mile. .,According to Rawson, it is a rare thing lt two Jorses are shod entirely alike, pearicularly champions. Cresceus wears 7?-ounce plain shoes in front and 4-ounce wedge shoes behind, the latter being used to prevent the stal lion from slipping, as he is inclined to do with a smooth shoe. Otherwise there is nothing peculiar about the shoeing of the former record holder, unless it is the gen eral leveling up, which is necessary when shoes are being shaped up for his feet. I.ou Dillon, the trotting queen, wore 6 ounce plain shoes in front and 3-ounce wedge shoes behind when she traveled the first mile ever trotted in two tminutes. The wedge shoes never helped the mare materially. They have a sharp corruga tion encircling the outside, which cuts into "the turf and prevents the animal wearing them from slipping when going at top speed. Dan Patch wears 7-ounce plain shoes In front and 5-ounce shoes behild. John A. McKerron has as heavy shoes in front as any of the champions, the plain fore shoes weighing 8 ounces. The stallion wears 4-ounce wedge shoes behind. Joe Patchen at his best wore 8-ounce bar shoes in front and 3-ounce wedge shoes behind. Alix was the only trotter, according to Rawson, who wore plains shoes both in front and behind. The former weighed 8 ounces and the latter 4. BASEBALL ARBITRATION BOARD IS ADJOURNED BY ASSOCIATED PREiSH. St. Louis, Oct. 26.-The national board of arbitration of the National Association of Baseball leagues terminated their busi ness and adjourned at an early hour to day. M. H. Sexton was selected chairman of the board. William Phyle of the Mem plis club, who failed to appear and sub stantiate the charges made by him that certain players had "thrown" games to influence the Southern l.eague champion ship, was expelled. A number of minor cases were decided. In the case of Ilulse man, who was drafted by the Chicago American club from Shreveport, the player was awarded to Shreveport.

COLUMBIA IS TO BE OVER HAULED AT MADEIRA ,Funchal, Isle of Madeira, Oct. 26.-The Columbia II arrived here last Friday and will be overhauled. The Columbia II is a ep-foot sailing boat in which Captain Isen Brown left Boston, April a , alone to sail to Mar seilles. On September 6 the craft was cap sized and Brown thrown overboard, losing most of his provisions. He was picked up on September 7, and after reprovislon ing his boat, resumed his Journey. SCIOOL OF MINES WINS Missoula, Oct. s6.-By a score of 39 to o, the School of Mines football team de feated the university eleven after an ex citing game Saturday afternoon, The Smokeeaters put up a strong game, their team work being exceptionally fine.

The University boys worked hard, but seemed to lack confidence, WORKING GIRLS IN A WALKING MATCH DRESSMAKERS AND MILUNERS OF PARIS ENGAGE IN A VERY EX CITING CONTEST BY A^SOCIATISD PR'RS. Paris, Oct. a6.-lt is a long time since any event has caused such a sensat ion as the walking competition just held here by the dressmakers' working girls. The place of the rendezvous was the gardens of the l'uilleries. Here tdey began to arrive two hours before so o'clock, the time fixed for the start. The scene inside the gar dens was most picturesque. There were hundreds of girls of every kind. Their ages were from 14 to 40 and their custnmiiae were as varied as the wearers. There were 1,6oo starters, and many of them took the matter quite serious. After their numbers were arranged the warning for the start was given and the heavy gates of the gardet swung on their hi nges. Ity this lime the crowd of sightseers was something enormous. There was not a va canlt inIch of space on the place, while up the Avenue l)es Chamnps Elysees as far as the eye could reach, nothing could be seen but serried lines of spectators. 1n the Palace de la Concord were a couple of companies of the Republican guards supplemented by a number of mounted police and a large number of policemen on foot. With difliculty a space was cleared for the m,6oo midinettes who faced the starter. A crack of the pistol and the walk to Nanterre had been begun. Owing to the crowd tlhere only remained a narrow lane up the center of the Champs Elysee and the starting line at once revolved it self into a procession. In the country several hills confronted the walkers, and at Nantes, the finishing point, nearly half the contestants had dropped out. Those who remained began to look the worse for wear. Naterre had never known such an influx of visitors and the crowd gathered to see the finish was quite too much for the local police. A nar row path was kept open by the free use of fists and feet, however, and when Mile. Jeanne Chamnel reached the goal she was greeted with uproarious cheering. The winner is a milliner, but the dressmakers carried off most of the remaining prizes. GREAT NORTHERN MAY SUE THE GOVERNMENT Indiana Have Torn Down Dam at Wolf Point on Fort Belknap Reserva tion, Under Orders. RPECIAI. TO T11K INTER MO(UNTAIN. '|Harlem, Oct. 26.-Matters have come to an issue between the government and the management of the Great Northern Railway company over the company's dam at Wolf Point on the Fort Belknap res ervation, where Wolf creek has been dammed to collect water for the engines, by the Indian agent tearing clown the dam and thereby restoring to Indians the water they have used for years for irriga tion purposes. It is expected that the company will at once sue the government to recover for the damages resulting from the de struction of the dam, which cost about $5o,ooo. The government and the rail road were unable to agree upon a division of the water. The indians needed the water for irrigation purposes, and as the company refused to biring a test case and the government was not in a position to do so, it was thought best for the govern ment to precipitate matters by tearing down the dam before the company had Ibeen in undisturbed possession of the water long enough to entitle it to legal possession thereto. Acting under orders from Agent W. R. Logan, who had received his instructions from the department, a party of Indians was detailed to cut the dam and release the water. It is now up to the railroad to bring the test case and settle the long drawn out controversy. W. C. T. U.
