SIGN UP! Come down to the Bulletin office and sign a monthly pledge :-: :-: :-: A LAMENTABLE FAILURE. WVith the sorry spectacle that Mayor W. Thomas Stodden is making of himself as the city's chief executive, it is to be won dered at that the republicans of the city---that is. the really in telligent ones in that. party (and we would be the last to say that all republicans are like Mayor Stod(leii)---do not take some action toward requesting that gentleman to step down and out and give way to some one who more truly would rep resent the people of the city and would depend less on instrue tions from the sixth floor to determine the action lie will take in matters of public interest. All know that Mr. Stodden is what is termed a political ac cident. Everyone knows that had the republican party of the I city previous to the city election of recent and fragrant meni cry, realized there was a chance that a republican would be elected, someone other than thl aforesaid Mr. Stodden would I Lave been nominated. The fact remains that in the last pre campaign time, as in others, the man nominated for mayor on the republican ticket was nominated, not because there was any belief that he would win the election, but solely in order to put a republican ticket in the field and keep the party alive. It is also a well-known fact that at the caucus held in the church house last spring Stoddeni was nominated as the re publicans' candidate for mayor because no other republican would have it. In other words the republicans, in nominating Mr. Stodden. selected him as the goat. The nomination was , an honor, of course, but neither Mr. Stodden, nor, we believe. any other republican in the city. ever gave a thought to the possibility of their nominee becoming in fact, mayor. And Mr. Stodden has made a lamentable failure as mayor. Loud in his protestations of what he intended to do as the city's executive andt of how, he intended to direct the city's affairs for 1 the best interests of the people, we have discovered to our sor row that Mr. Stodden heeds the voice of the people less by far than he does that small, but powerful whispering voice fromn the sixth floor of the Hennessy building. The voters of the city. got behind Mr. Stoddemi's ticket in the last. city election for the pur'pose of defeating "I, Captainl Cutts," the candidate who received the democratic nomina lion through the frauds perpetrated by agents of' the sixth floor. and later approved by Judge Lamb. We were willing to give Mr. Stodden every chance in the world to show that he was what we looked to hint to be-----a mayor of the people and not a mayor of the corporate interests. He has failed. And if the republican party in tile city of Butte desires to make good ally of its promises anit obligations, it must get rid of Stodden. and put in the city's executive chair a man who will heed the repudiation ,if corplorate control of Butte record cd by the voters last April. It is up to the republicau party to iake good. WILL IT HAPPEN? That the world-wide unrest is not confined to the ildus trial field, but is rammpant also ini the political field has been evidenced by many resignations and near resignations. In tilhe latter category can be placed tihe follow\\ing. which has not yet been written by Judge Lamb: Dear g;overno : Having been elevale ct t tie distrlic belnchl of Silver flow county as the result of apl,,intmeiit transferred througlh your .,l'Iice. I deem it wise, in the inlerests of time.nmaster whom we both serve, that I tender m y resiglnation ias judge, to take effect imnmuedtiately, after leieig approved by His Excellency in Butte. 1 am impelled to this action by a deep sense of devotion o to te cause of copper de inmcracy---a cause to w\\hich you and I have ever been true. As you know, it has tleen .iy great good forl umne on several occasions to have been cift'rontted with the acid test of loyalty to our mutual Ibene'actor. and. as you also know, I caime through with flying colors in every instance. dlisre garding' in two notable cases both the law anit the evi. dence, i. e.. lhe Marmorale case anld the city election frauds case. However. my dear governor. in successful ly passing through the acid test ini tihe aforementioned cases, I feel that 1 have. in a political way. become a liiia lili.ty rather than an asset to our gracious overlord and imaster. Ini view of this ec.ordl. and with the lpurpose of still serving to the best of my humible ability, and as a further demomnustratiomi of fealty to Htis Omnipotence. I believe it. my dluty to step aside and make room for someone whose public record will not emburrass His Most August High ness and jeopardize the continued sway of' the Brother hood of the Metallic Ring. W:ithi deep concern for the future. I remain vyom's To Serve and Obey. JULI.GE LAMB. IMPE1IALIST PROPAGANDA. llow persistent are the press agents of lie imlperialists! In dispatches printed in all t' the corporation-owned pa pers of the countr'y we are told of the "arrest'' of Nikolai Le nine by Leoni Trotzky and also of the '"dtesertion" to the bol sheviki of a 'crnman army headed by a t;erman general. The strange part of the whlole campaign of lying press re ports about the bolsheviki is the inability of the press agents of the imperialists to keep their staries straight. Tmruly they lack a competent directing head. Here we have Lenine in jail, put there by his fellow worker, Trotzky. Sonic moniths ago we had Lenine dbad, executed on 'tlie order i.,f Trutzky-.

Everyone will remember the "special dispatches" from Holsiiglfors. or the wireless reports to the entene's war of lices with which we were regaled for weeks, telling us of the "defeats" of the bolslheviki troops by General Kolchak. Later. when the real dope came out, it developed that the retreating was done by Kolchak and that the stories should have read: "Defeated by the bolslieviki." Again this lnorniiig, as contrasted with yesterday's Associ ated Press reports telling of the "desertioni"' of a German gen eral "to the bolsheviki," we are advised by the same press service that the (German general, presumably the same who de serted yeslerday, ihas issited ultimatums spurning the orders of the peace conrfereitee and declaring that he will maintain armed "resistance to the spread of bolshevism." And remember the innumerable stories abdutl the "impend ing fall of Petrograd," "the evacuation of Petrograd," etc., which the imperialist press of America has been serving up to. the dupes of the author of "The New Freedom" for the past 8 or 1I0 months. Petrograd is still in the hands of the people's soviet govermnent of Russia;'arnd will so remain until over a huiindred mnillion Russians jump into the sea. W hen it comes to stories a.ubout the Russian situation in the imlperiali.l press, the readers would do well to take literally the old injinti. iin: "Never believe anythinlg you read in the newvspapers unless you see it: adltl Ihen doubt the evidence of your eyes." JAWN TACKLES LIVINGSTON. Livingston laborites, according to dispatches. ill addition to putting up a fight for a inunicipal-owined waterworks systeml, are about to engage ill the co-operative store business. This is the se(quel to a receln successful fight made by organized labor there agaiinst a local scurrilous rag conitrolled by the A:nacoi ndt.Coppler comipainy. As a result of this fight it is said Illiltlt lii w t . McIlntosh, sport extraordinary-, circular-letter' tpatriot, iuid between times hand-lmaiden Io t he Associated lin dlustries of Monitalta, has invaded the Yellowstone metropolis and tIhrowin doiwin the gaunltlet to the laborites. Foir I.h lti bneefit and encouragement of the Livinigston slaves. we will inllftorm them that the same versatile and irrepressible Jlawnt started ai fight something over ii year ago to put the Bulletinii out of business. The tact Ithat the Bulletin, despite the herculean efforts of Jawn. has girow\\l fro a )weak infant to a i husky youth, should comforn t the workers of Liviigston w\\hei the fight becomes bitter., Ho\wever, lest organized hlabor of Livingstoii should sleep at the swvitch and lose, through overconfidence, let it be recorded that Jawn never lets up in his enldeavors to keep his demented diuplies furiishiing the piecard. and. as an instance of Jawn's persistence. the Cootie club of Butte was revived about six veceks ago, and as a result the Bulletin's advertising receipts fell ,oft 30 cents during the month of September. This is not much in these days. and the deficiency has been made good by a; voluntary contribution from the inmates of the poor farm. but it will serve as notice to the boys with corlis on their haniids in Livingston that eternal vigilance is the key to victory in their fight with Jazziiig Jawit. That Miinnesota woiann whot bought a membership ii the league of' nationis for $7 must have heard President W'ilsoii's explanation of the league on his recent \western trip. Judging it by its personnel, when that "round-table" con - ference gets through sitting in W\ashington, labor will be lucky f if it has its overalls left. t \What would happen to .;The New- Freedom" if th!at spirit J of '76 evidenced by the workers of Oakland was emulated by s all the toilers?

For agreeing to defend his title in a twenty-round bout at New Orleans on the night of Thanksgiving day, Pete Herman, the legitimate bantam weight champion, is to receive a guarantee of $11,000 with''an op tion of accepting 50 per cent of the gross receipts. Sam Goldman, man ager of Herman, has announced the above terms which he has signedohis battler up for, and that Dominick Tortorich, the promoter, has the privilege of selecting whatever op ponent he cares to put against Her man. Joe Lynch will be most likely be named to go against Herman. Her man has been offered a big incentive to go to Paris and fight Charley Le Doux, the French champion, in a 20 round bout for the world's bantam weight title some time in December. Goldman declares that he will accept the match, providing that Herman is successful in defending his title at New Orleans on Thanksgiving day night. Major Frank Hague of Jersey City, who was chairman of the committee which conducted the big boxing show at the Jersey City baseball. grounds recently, at which Champion Kil bane and Frankie Burns fought the main bout and which drew the larg est crowd that has ever witnessed a boxing show in this country, sent for l Burns and Inade him a present of $500 aside-from the big sum received foi. boxing Kilbane. Billy M.iske, the St. Paul heavy weight, who twice went the full dis :tance with Champion Jack Dempsey in ring bouts, will not be in shape to box for six months at least, or per haps never. I Jack Reddy, Miske's manager, in a letter to the writer, says Miske is in a hospital, and it will be three months before he can. consider training. While out 'west recenitly, Joe Choynski stated that boxing could not improve, as there, are o!ily seven punches that can be used. "I don't agree with him there," said Jim Corbett, when he heard of it. "You know there are only so many kinds of deliveries that a pitcher can! use, too. It isn't the number, it's: how he uses them and when he uses them. You see, all pitchers have the use of them the same as all fighters have the seven punches. It's all a question of how and when, do you get me?" In Joe Gan's time the world was full of hard hitters. Dal Hawkins had a left hand punch, delivered slowly at full arm's length, with a sudden twist of the wrist, that was like a blow with a hammer. He landed that on Gans in the first round of each of 'their two famous fights and each time knocked Gans flat and nearly out. Yet Gans each time came up, stalled, recovered, fought furi ously and knocked out Hawkins. When Gans had been fighting only as long as Benny Leonard has been fighting now he had nothing like Leonard's knockout record. But he was fighting men like Kid McPart land, Jack Daly, Young Griffo, Spider Kelly, George McFadden, Frank Erne, Willie Fitzgerald, and scores of others who were great because they were brought up on long fights, from 20 to 45 rounds, instead of the six and 10-round no-decision bouts, of today.

The re sult might have been foreseen: a wild passion of love-the yielding to it---the flight to Abelard's home. where Heloise bore him a son. Then a private marriage came which Hel oise woud not avow, a holocaust to her lover's future. Tile brilliant Abelard entered the abbey of St. Den nis; Heloise took the veil at Argen teuil.
