GOSSIP NOTES I SPORTOGRAPHY o --0 By "GRAVEY:" MAY I NOT * * * suggest that Mays would be a good name for a suspender? After a short try-out, baseball has "failed to knock the French dead. They were wild over the thing at first, according tb reports, and were getting up leagues and everything. But now that most of the doughboys have left their shores they have ap parently passed up the hit and run pastime, because they are shy of teacherns and the like, Sir Tromas Lipton, that dead game old sport, is getting all set to try for America's cup again. He's got another soow, and he's calling this one "Shamrock IV." He may have some luck this time, on account of four leaf shamrocks being supposedly packed full of charms. Anyhow, Sir Thomas deserves eleven dr twelve cheers for his ability to take a lot of )eating. I bet he thinks America's cup is the heaviest thing in the world ---he can't even lift it! Eddie McGourty, the Money Mad box fighter who would battle at buzz saw if there was enough Jack in it for him, is going to mingle with no less than Joe Beckett, heaveyweight champion of England! Sweet Cookie -what that Oshkosh cut-up will do for pay! The slaughter has lieen set for Sept. 2 in London and the boys will quarrel over a purse of $10,000 with a $5,000 side bet. Ed die has been punching his way all over Europe, knocking all comers dead and many of his victims were heavyweights, but on the dope, this one should be all different. Whilst McGourty is a gpod boy it looks like, he is due for a pasting this time. Unless Beckett is an awful bum, he should dispose of McGourty in short order as from all reports he, figures too large and clever for the Wisconsin bear cat. If Beckett lets Eddie stay, he can kiss his chance of meeting Dempsey goodbye, so you know the English mauler will sure try in this one! Tlhe ('lass ill Spotographlly. Seventeen years ago today the fight fans of the world were as ex cited as if the heavyweight cham-I pionship was scheduled to he de-. cided. James J. Corbett and Kid MlcCoy--who several years ago came into prominence through his arrest by Belgian authorities on the charge of being implicated in a jewel theft i --.-were matched to meet. in New York i that night. Aug. 30, 1900. Coraett had lost his title to "Ruby Robert," who in turn had been laid low by the great Jeffries. The latter had also administered a defeat to "Gen tleman Jim" just a few months be fore. There was no title at stake, as McCoy had become too heavy for the legitimate middleweiglt title, and Corbett certainly could not com pete for that crown. Nevertheless, the battle was advertised as foi "the championship of the world," and in a way this was true, since it brought together the two cleverest ring geu crals and most scientific boxers in the history of pugilism. Some writers have alleged that the bout was a fake, but there seems no basis for that charge, other than alleged "con fessions" that were themselves prob ably fakes. There was an old grudge between Corbett and McCoy and both were out for victory, blo-o-od and r-r-revenge. Both claimed to be the real masters of scientific fisticuffs, and they were intensely jealous of each other. Suspicious circumstances surrounded many of McCoy's bat tles. but in meeting Corbett the "Kid" was certainly bent on winning, if possible. Over two years before a Corbett-McCoy match had been ar ranged to take place in Buffalo, but it was called off owing to threats of officiil interference. Each of the fighters accused the other of "crawl ing," and a wordy warfare followed until Aug. 30, 1900, when the ene mies climbed into the ring to fight it out. The battle lasted but five rounds, but those five innings were worth to the spectator more than a hundred rounds of ordinary fight ing. Lightening had little in the way of speed to teach the two men, and the quickest eye could hardly fol low their movements. For five rounds the ring was a kaleidoscope of flash ing white bodies and smacking gloves. The fighters were as light. on their feet as a pair of cats. That two big men-for McCoy had built himself up to 170 pounds-could be so quick and agile was a revela tion to the spectators. In the fifth round McCoy went down and out, but, though vanquished, he was not dishonored. What and by which club was the highest season's percentage ever made? Answer tomorrow.

New York, Aug. 30.--It was Dick Rudolph who was umainly responsible for tie Braves' roughshod treatment of the Giants in 1914. Milton Stock had quite a little finger in the 191 I pie the Philliex cut. In 1916, Riube Marquard hbar something of importance to do with the winning of a pennant by the Dodgers. In 1917, Eddie Cicotte ruffled the ied Sox by ilefting the White Sox into a world's championship. \hat's it all about? Nothing touch, except that Dick Rudolph was tossed off by the Giants and so were Stock and Marquard Cicotte was spurned by the Red Soa in the past ages. And Bill Rariden Heinie Groh, Eddie Itousch and Slim Sallee, now championing for Cincin nati. were blown off by the Giants. The Giants paid $40,000 fot Arthur Nehf---or so it is claimed Judged by that, what is Babe Ruth worth ? Nehf lost his first two starts fol the Giants. although he pitched fair ly well in both pastimes. Both garnme were vital in the averages of the floundering New Yorkers. In one oa them the Reds punched him full ot holes and climbed out another, game Jack Lempsey has left'the sock ing business flat and is uplifting the circus, where Jess Willard left off And only a few short months age he-was pi'omising to detend his title whenever a worthy oplponent ap peared.

New York, Aug. 30.-investigators 1 who are looking for the "guilty party'" responsible for the high cost at living in the United States will never find him in America, accord ing to Wall street financiers. A correspondent of the United Press interviewed several of the biggest bankers of the country to ask them for their iueas on the higly cost of living. Though the financial men refused to allow their names used, they were free in their opinions. The general concensus is that the man who started the war is responsi ple. People who are suffering now are merely paying their part of the bill for ma king the world free for democracy, in the opinion of fi nanciers. "The present situation is the na tural one after five years of destruc tion and non-production," explained mie prominent Wall street man. "The world is short of food and clothing ind supplies of all kinds. America is short because it has shipped so much :o Europe, and because it is not pro ducing enough. "High prices are the result of a shortage on the market. Legislation and agitation will' not lower prices permanently or to any extent. As soon as we begin to produce more, so that the surplus on the market pauses competition for sale, prices will come down. Until we produce more, and until Europe produces more, prices will remain high. "Wall street is not surprised at the very high prices and the unrest all over the country. The financial interests anticipated and expected this trouble. Similar disturbances have occurred after every war of im portance. Look back at the period following the Civil war. The only difference is that the present catas trophe is greater than any previous one, and will be more difficult to re adjust." The bankers interviewed were not in sympathy with the agitation and legislation in Washingon. Wall street considers it an ineffective way of feeding the hungry, and generally accuses the legislators of playing for publicity. The economic situation will adjust itself along the good old fashioned lines of the law of supply and de mand, according to the financiers, who feel that nothing ese under the sun can serve as a real remedy, though they admit that certain legis lative moves can be injected as tem porary stimulants.

Fellow workers on the Bulletin staff: Enclosed please find a little mite to help a little on keeping the wage slaves' banner afloat. I wish I could make it 100 bucks or more, but with no crop this year and only 63 bushels of wheat in the years of 1917 and 1918 it's hard sledding for a dry land farmer. If the Bulletin has to go down, put this little mite in the defense fund for' the two brothers that were found guilty in the capitalistic court in Helena that was backed by the infa.molls "council of pretense and expense" to the tax payers of Montana. HOW ABOUT THOSE PLEDGES? Sam Fierrce,n, President Meets 1Every Tuesday Night, 8 p. m. John Green, Secretary 1'an Inpr u rs' Union 11all. Silver Bow Trades and Labor Council lintle, Montana. At the regular meeting of the Silver lHow Trades and labor assembly last night the following communication was endorsed: Butte, August 4, 1919. To All Affiliated Unions: E |1 i E 'ý lj The Silver Bow Trades and Ibabor clnllil, realizing the magnificent fight being waged by the Butte Daily 3Bulletinl, whichl is l hle official organ of this body, for its existence, against the combined opposition of hig corporations and profiteering business men, and thoroughly understanding that this p] 'er1 is positively the only mediumn of publicity through which labor unions are at liberty 10 cxllprcss t heir side of any controversy that may arise with the employing interests of this (claonllltity, earnestly hopes thlat the paper may secure the support which it so richly 'deserves. That the persons in charge of this pu1bl ication may be free to devote their entire time and energies to the interests of t le workers, instead of a greater or less portion of it in securing funds to meet current; expenses, is a very important thinig, and with this idea in view this council recommends to all affiliated unions and union men in general who have the welfare of the labor movement at heart: First, that all unions who feel so inclined agree to donate a stated sum per month, no matter how small, and at once inform the Bulletin management of the action taken. Second, that members of locals, individually, do likewise, if the organization to which they belong does not feel that it cares to act in the matter. One affiliated union has already agreed to pay $30 per month to the Bulletin, and, as the deficit will not exceed $2,500 per month, there should ble absolutely no reason why the working men and women of Montana, after having established a daily in this city, should be deprived of the privilege of having an organ which can and will refute any un just statement, made by the corporation papers concerning them. If 10,000 workers in this great state would assess themselves but 25 cents each, per month, we would have a daily that the exploiting interests well might fear, and, as it is, Butte is a cleaner city than for years. The Bulletin started the fight against the p)rofiteers. The Bulletin exposed crooked elecltion methods. The Bulletin was the direct cause of the public market. The Bulletin made it jpossible to buy produce direct from farmers. The Bulletin exposed and secured the conviction of a crooked chief of detectives, when the corporation papers laughed at its efforts. The Bulletin is fighting at all times the battle of the workers, and if its management is willing to remain t1rue to the cause of labor and suffer imprisonment and other forms of persecution that the paper may perform the mission for which it was intended, the least , the laboring peophle of Montana can do is to furnish the sinews of war, which will be a very small amount per capita when apIportioned among the many. The council suggests that you decide upon an amount that will in no way distress either an individual or :an organization, and then send in that sum promptly on the date agreed upon. In this way the question will be solved easily and as time rolls along we will more and more understand that "the pen is mightier than the sword.'' These statements shall be given to the Butte Daily Bulletin, under the signature of the officers of this organization, with Lull permission to use them, within the limits set forth, for the purpose of in anty way assisting the future prosperity of the said Bulletin.
