Kid Foley, who is well known in
this city, has been matched to fight with Young Erne Friday night at Livingston. Foley put up a hammer and tongs exhibition with Kid Fred ericks in this city on the night of the Fourth of July, four years ago, being knocked out after several rounds of blood letting. He was never considered much of a fighter, even in those days, and it is hardly likely that he has improved greatly with time, especially as he is getting along toward the thirty mark. Ketchel and Sullivan. San Francisco, Jan. 18.—Young Ketchell of Butte and Mike (Twin) Sullivan of Boston were matched to day to fight before Jimmy Coffroth's Colma Athletic club on February 22. The fight will be for twenty rounds at 154 pounds, three hours before going into the ring, and a side bet of $1,000, of which $500 was posted by each side when the articles were signed, which will also go as a for feit for weight and appearance. Mike (Twin) Sullivan looked after his own interests, while Joe O Con nor appeared for Young Ketchel, and as the men had practically agreed to all the terms before meeting in Coffroth's office but little time was lost. The only point not definitely settled was the referee question, but it is probable that Billy Roache will be the third man in the ring when, the gong calls the men to action. Sullivan opposes Roache, as he thinks Billy did not give his brother Jack a square deal in the Kaufman fight, but in this he is mistaken. The fighters will get 50 per cent of the gate reeipts and will split them 75 per cent to the winner and 25 per cent to the loser. Mike Sullivan took up his training quarters at Los Angeles, where Jack is now preparing for his contest with toe Thomas and Rube Smith, the fast Denver welterweight, is on hand helping Jack and will asist Mike af ter the Thomas fight is concluded. Sullivan has expressed his willing ness to increase the side bet if the Ketchel forces desire it and claims that he will not only win but will knock out Ketchell before the twen tv rounds. In this opinion, however, he has not got the support of the fans who watched Ketchel defeat Joe Thamas on two occasions. White Sox Are Strong. The Sox are pretty strong now— good enough to set the running and keep at the top all the way, with an even break of luck, says W. A. Phelon, in the Chicago Journal. Back of the bat there is now little to worry over. It would have been a ndeeful thing if a catcher who could hit—like Bemis for instance— could have been secured for McFar land, but Shaw is present with the goods so far as the backstopping is concerned. If luck will only prevent the reg ular explosion of "Billy" Sullivan's fingers Shaw won't have to catch more than twenty-five games during the season. The infield, with Parent on sec ond and Tennehille back in good form, is a formidable proposition. Rohe and Purtell, the Three-1 man, will probably be the utilities. Davis may move to second, leaving Parent at short, but in any event tFc presence of Parent, who is only 31 years old and right in his prime, will make up for the passing of Ispell and give the diamond a lot of dazzling plays. Jones, Dougherty and Hahn are good enough for the field. Be it re membered that all three of these men batter far better in 1907 than in 1906, and seemed to have gotten back into osmething like the hitting stride that once won them renown. John Anderson will be the pinch hitter, the sub-fielder and the handy boy" to cover first if Donohue hurt. Taken as a whole, the Sox looks better than at any time since they won the championship of the world, and the Siuth Side fans must again congratulate Chas. Comiskey, has quietly assembled this great club, and has dine it without anv fluorish of trumpets or noise of gongs. The winter is not yet over, nor is the trading season through. Don't be surprised if Owen, Fiene and Welday are worked off in a deal that will bring a good catcher to Wentworth avenue, in which case the team will be just what the doctor ordered and the fans' desire. A Question of Ethics. Missoulan: Comes now "Dave" Fultz, ex-Highlander and lifelong baseball player, and says: "It is no worse for a college boy to play base ball for money than it is for him to do tutoring or to sing in a church choir for pay.'* Dave has been on earth a long time; he has had oppor BANK WILL REMAIN CLOSED. f - Heinze Has Not Put Up Money to Enable State Savings to Open. Butte, Jan. 16.—On the recom mendation of Attorney General Galen, the state examiner and coun sel representing the parties at inter est, District Judge Bourquin, today continued the hearing incident to the application for the appointment of a receiver for the State Savings bank until February 17. Nothing was said to show whether or not F. Augustus Heinze had or had not complied with the order of the court requiring him to put up $250,000 to secure his indebtedness to the bank. Judge Bourquin con tenting himself by saying that all of the conditions imposed by him De cember 27 had not been complied with. The' court, however, thought tunity to observe carefully the ways these things work and his opinion should be worth something. Not all men can play baseball well enough to command a salary for doing it; not all men can sing well enough to warrant a church choir in paying them for using their voices; not all men are so constituted as to make their services as tutors worth a cent. But the man who can play baseball so well that his services are worth money, that man has a talent whicli has been given him for use. Accord ing to the view of the veteran base ball player, the employment of that talent for financial gain, when money is needed for school or for some thing else, is not to be condemned. And isn't the old player about right? Sidesteps Ketchell. San Francisco, Jan. 15.—Billy Papke, the Illinois middleweight, who had the refusal of a Washington birthday match with Young Ket chell, doesn't seem to think so well of the scheme. His manager, F. E. ijnes, telegraphed Promoter Coff roth yesterday that Papke had prac tically agreed to fight a return en gagement with Hugo Kelly in Feb ruary, and could not accept a match with Ketchell unless it was put ov ra month. Coffroth replied that if Papke did not care to accept the offer for h ebruary 22nd he could con sider the incident closed. Coffroth said last night that he was trying to get in communication with Hugo Kelly with a view of hav ing him box Ketchel on Washing ton's birthday. It is quite possible that Kelly will refuse on the same ground as Papke and in such case Mike (Twin) Sullivan, who is the original Johnny-on-the-spot in situ ations of this kind, will be Kctchel's opponent next month at the Mission street arena. Glade Is Satisfied. New York, Jan. 7.—Special Cor respondence:—Fred Glade will be a Yankee, after all. The former St. Louis crack sent a neat letter to Sec retary Nahon of the New York Am ericans last week, saving that he was well pleased with the recent leal ,and that he had decided to re main in baseball for several years to come. "I always wanted to play on a New York team," wrote Glade, "and I feel that this splendid oppor tunity should not i-e lost. Send on a contract and I will sign it, if the terms arc satisfactory." After con sulting with President Farrell, Na hon mailed a contract to Glade, which will no doubt please the star pitcher when he receives it. Griffith has al ways been anxious to secure Glade, for he believes he is one of the best pitchers in the country. George Davis, of the White Sox, who visits the American League's clubs head quarters in the Flatiron Bu : .ld : ng fre quently, said, when he heard that Glade wanted to sign: "New York will go wild over this great pitcher. He is one of the best I ever saw, and I am sorry that the Sox did not get him. He will be a big favorite here and will help the Yankees wonderfully in their battle for the pennant." Score one for Clark Griffith. Mc Aleer gave his reason for trading Glade, that he feared that the big pitcher would not play professional ball in 1908. Groffith, realizing the value of the Nebraska whirlwind, took the chance that the Browns' manager passed up and has won out and will get his services for at least one season. When we hook up with the High landers this year," said Jack Powell, "each team may have on it one-half or more former members of its rival. Suppose 'OConnor and Howell or myself were the battery and Yaeger, Williams and Ferris were on the in field, there would be six ex-New Yprk playehs in St. Louis uniforms. and if Howell relieved me or I suc gets!ceeded him, all of us would be in the came. Ferris never played un der Griffith, but he was bought from Boston by Farrell to pull off the big deal. Opposed to us might be Glade and Rickey in the points, Niles at who'second base and Hemphill in center ball,held, The University of Michigan and the University of Pennsylvania have renewed their two year agrement under which they will play two games of football. This year the game will be played in Philadelphia and in 1909 Pennsylvania will come to Ann Arbor for the return contest, '.these games attract a good deal of attention and are well patronized. Kelley Signs With Boston. New York,J an. 11.—Joseph Kel ley, manager of the Montreal East ern League club last year, signed a contract with President Dovey of the Boston Nationa League club today to manage the Boston club for the coming season. He succeeds Fred Tenney. GOVERNOR UPHELD. the bank would be able to business by February 17. Nevada Legislature Votes to Keep U. S. Troops in Goldfield. Carson Citv, Nev., Jan. 16.—At the afternoon session of the assembly the resolution which passed the senate this morning, petitioning the president to retain the troops tern porarily, passed without a negative vote. There was no argument on either side as to the merits of the measure. Governor Sparks was at the speak er's desk and, as he came into the hall, was greeted with applause. Speaker Skaggs, who has opposed the ~overnor in the matter of call ing troops to Nevada, left the chair and Speaker Pro. Tern. Folsom, placed the motion before the house. Skaggs failed to vote on the measure, absenting himself at the roll call. Goaalp. How frequently are the honesty and integrity of man disposed of by a smile or a shrug! How many good and gen erous actions have been shrunk into oblivion by a distrustful look or stamp ed with the imputation of proceeding from bad motives by a mysterious and seasonable whisper! Look into com panies of those whose gentle natures should disarm them; we shall find no better account. How often does the reputation of a helpless creature bleed by a report—which the party who is at the pains to propagate it beholds with much pity and fellow feeling—that the is heartily sorry for it; hopes In God It is not true; however, as Archbishop Tillotsou wittily observes upon it, is resolved in the meantime to give the report her pass that at least it may have fair play to take its fortune In die world to be believed or not, ac cording to die charity of those into whose hands it shall happen to fall!— Addison. Luck. Abraham Lincoln, after being a mem ber of congress, desired to secure a clerkship in Washington, but he was defeated by Justin Butterfield. He was disappointed, but had he not been defeated he would have spent his life in obscurity instead of becoming pres ident of the United States. Oliver Cromwell was once on board a ship bound for America, but he was taken back by a constable, and the re sult was that he became one of the greatest men England ever knew. Ulysses Grant would not have been a military man had it not been that his rival for a West Point cadetship had been found to have six toes on each foot Instead of live. The great silver mine, the Silver King, had been discovered by the lucky accident of a prospector throwing a piece of rock at a lazy mule. St. Nivliolaa. Bantu Claus was born in Patavia, in Asia Minor. That was not bis real name. He was an abbot and named St. Nicholas. He afterward became archbishop of Myra. At the latter place he died and was duly buried. In May, 1087, his remains were carried b • some pious I Lilians to Bari, on the Adriatic coast. They are now at rest in a splendid church which bears his name. The people around about make a pilgrimage to his shrine every year. No one seeking food on that occasion is refused it by the priests, while ac commodation is given to as many pil grims as the edifice will hold. On St. Nicholas' day, Dec. G, a great celebra tion takes place in his honor. Early in the morning the populace take his im age from the priests and carry it through the town. At night the city is grandly illuminated. llummlnK Bird*. Scientifically humming birds are "tro chilidae," and those who make a spe cial study of them are "trochilidists," although the birds are not identical with the old Greek '•trochilus," or "run ner," bird, which, according to Herod otus, entered the jaws of the sleep ing crocodile and obliged its big friend by picking leeches from his throat. The Spanish name for the humming bird is tomiuejo," meaning a third of a dram and referring, of course, to the bird's minuteness. But the prettiest names are those, such as the French "frou frou," which refer to the humming noise sometimes produced by the al most incredibly rapid vibration of the wings. "Purring with her wings" is the expression of Thomas Morton (1632), the first English writer to men tion the humming bird. A Perfect Leaf. The teacher of a large class in one of the New York schools once said to the pupils who were leaving for the sum mer: "I want each of you to search for a perfect leaf and bring It to me when school reopens. Remember, it must be perfect—every tooth right, not to speak of mold or blight or discoloration, not a vein broken." They searched faith fully, but none found a perfect leaf, though they learned a great deal about leaves while they examined them thus carefully.—New York Times. The Human Veice. One'e surprise at the fact that no two persons' voices are perfectly alike ceases when one is informed by an au thority on the subject that, though there are only nine perfect tones In the human voice, there is the astounding number of 17,692,186,044,415 different sounds. Of these fourteen direct mus cles produce 16,383, and thirty indi rect muscles produce 173,741,823, while all in co-operation produce the total given above. A Generous Actor.

The Home of the Rancher Who Thinks The Money Question. Fergus County Democrat: As there is much discussion going on in regard to the panic I venture an opinion also. The panic was started by act of Congress dictated by Na tional Bankers; authorizing said banks to retire nine millions of their notes each month. This was intend ed first to curtail inflated credits. In the next place when people became cramped for money to put out elas tic asset currency. O consistency, thou art a jewel. These same ad vocates of asset currency would have had fits if the government had issued its notes, notwithstanding such notes would have been based on the entire wealth of the nation now and all it ever would have so long as such notes were outstanding. Now isn't currency backed by all the people better than if backed by any one class? And Congress, oh my; last spring the money oligarchy told them to let them contract nine mil lions a month and they did it. This fall the same authority says give us currency based on assets. If said assets are well watered it makes no difference if we can have it all O. K.'d by the government. Does Congress represent any body but bankers? Isn't it a clear case of Simon says wigwag and they wag? Now, if we must have asset cur rency let us have plenty of it. For every dollar issued to bankers let the farmers have an equal amount, and if bankers won't have it that way cut them out and give it all to the farmers at the rate of 75 per cent of the value of his own perish able crops, when warehoused and in sured. I think the asset craze would lose much of its attractiveness if the above terms were insisted upon. I think if the alternative was pre sented, all parties would prefer treasury notes issued by the govern ment, paid out on its liabilities re ceivable for taxes. Mr. Jefferson said we could float $200,000,000 in his day, and his opinion is as good as any of the servants of plutocracy, al though they may be in Congress. But the plain people will never get justice as long as they elect men to Congress who vote for cantraction in the spring and inflation in the fall. There is but one remedy, "turn the rascals out," and do it next fall. If you don't, fellow citizens, they will continue to turn the lion's share of your labor over to their masters and millionaires will increase by the thou sand, nickelaires by the million. Just one chance left gentlemen, "turn the rascals out." As a class our bankers are a high toned set of gentlemen, with about the usual amount of hu man nature in their composition, as other people, but they have vastly more worldly wisdom than the mas ses. And I will further say, if the people are going to throw up the sponge and can't or won't learn any thing about national finance, and must have bosses. Then I cheerfully recommend the bankers as eminent ly qualified for that arduous and dif ficult position. And I have but two requests to make of them. Don't kill the goose that lays the golden eggs, don't muzzle the ox too long at a time, that treads out the corn. And to the masses I will say, toil on ye ephemeral train, toil on for the pride of man ye mock. With your sand based structures and dome of rock Toil on but ye enter not in, like the tribes that the desert devoured their sin. G. W. DRINKARD. Gummed Labels.
