ANACONDA HIGH O8.00OL BASKET
BALL TEAM WILL BE SEEN
HERE FRIDAY NIGHT.
Anaconda's recent baskethall victory
over lutte has inspired the young hldies of
the Smelter City with renewed ambition
and they will chase the ball with the Paro
chial school of Butte on next Friday
Since the game played between the Ana
cottda H1ighl School basketball team and the
Butte High School team, the Anaconlda
young ladies have been practicing assidu
ously and have Ieen inspired with renewed
amnition and coturage. They promise to
give the Patochials a run for their money.
The Anacondas were to have played
Missoula onl the al.ove date. but for some
reasons the lMissoulans hate failed to get
together and decide upon anything dlefi
nite and the Anacondas will take on the
Parochials in this city instead.
Butte and Altacondla have a gaie cool
ing ttp in this city shortly and the game
with the Parochials will Ie excellent prac
tice tino matter what the result. The Paro
chials laid claim to the state championship
last year, but the Fort Shaw Indians
downed them in the most exciting game of
the' season. Outside of the Indian girls
the Parochials had the Iest te'am, and
much of the old material is still there.
The girls will play at the Auditorium
and a red hot gaime is anticipatedt . Butte
has not ceased practice and when they
meet Anaconda in the third game of the
series, there will be something doing.

JACK MUNROE TO BE
HOME FOR HOLIDAYS
Butte Boxer Says He Hopes to Beat
Jack Munroe will spend the holidays in
Butte. That is what Jack says in a letter
to a friend.
In speaking of his go with Al Iimerick,
Munroe says that he has all the confidence
in the world of beating Limerick in less
than the stipulated number of rounds.
"\While the other fellows have been
spouting wind as to what they will do, I
have been saying nothing, but sawing
wood and getting in shape for the go. In
my fight with Maher it was too easy to be
exciting. He never had me feeling dis
tressed at any time, and it was only a
question of finding him when 1 got ready."
Thus Jack tells of his methods in the East.
In speaking of the criticisms of the
eastern press Jack says: "They have
wanted me to meet every dub in the busi
ness and then when I refused they won
der what my game is. If I am to meet
Jeffries I wish only to meet the best men
near him, for there is little credit in beat
ing men like Maher."

The athletic comnmittee of llarvard unti
versity, which was asked by thle faculty
of arts and science to report whether the
big college football contests shoull be
discontinued, hhave reported that such ac
tion should not be taken at present.
The following conversation is said to
have taken place between Jimll Corbett and
his manager recently:
"Tell 'em Fitz is too old and I do not
want to batter up an old grandfather.
'There's no honor in it."
"llut everybody wants to see you 9o
with him and it would be a money

"It will take a strong, husky young fel
low with better .material in him than I
possess. I tried to find the way to do it,
but could not."
And now it is announced that the pro
,moters of the World's Fair fistic carnival
hope to put Corbett against Jeffries for a
purse of $50,oo000o. And ('orlbett expresses
his willingness to do battle again with
the champion. If anyone can find ally
logic in such a course they have a peculiar
faculty of perception.
The fight could have but one conclusion
at best and those who attended would wit
ness an affair already decided. It is not
likely the promnoters of the match will re
ceive much encouragement, for it is the
rankest piece of holdup ever perpetrated.
Tommy Mowatt declares lie will go
after the best men fighting at his weight.
It is Mowatt's intention to force Young
Crtlett into a fight. lie says:
"I want to retire from the game, but
not before I get the featherweight title.
To do that I must w'hip Corbett. I shall
keep at him until I get the match-then
look out for another champion."
Mowatt is picking Corbett to knock out
Hanlon, but he says if the fight goes the
limit 'Hanlon will carry away the large
end of the money.

this boxing business," says Jack O'Brien,
who was in Chicago the other day, "th t

and to chatlenge him for battle. I found
him, and I addressed himn something like
this: 'My Dear Mr. Fitzsimmons: Par
don me if I intrude, but it has long been
my desire to arrange a contest with you
either for the middleweight championship
at 158 pounds or the light heavyweight
honors, at a weight to be selected by
yourself. Take your time as to consid
eration of the subject, and extend mne, if
possible, a favorable answer.'
"Mr. Fitzsimmons then replied to me in
this fashion: 'Mr. O'Brien, the sincerity
of your manner and the honesty of your
challenge have made a deep impressioe
upon me-. While I am at present Inc..
pacitated for any contests, owing to the
condition of my hands, I will bear you in
mind, and, if these injuries vanish, will
give you an answer as frankly as you have
given mne a challenge.' "
So delightful I Perish the brute who
says that the conversation betwen Jack
and Bob was this way:
"Say, Bob, how 'bout a fight 'tween you
and me? Either at 58, or any old weight
you say. It would get the dough?"
