NEWS w m i H Wff ™" q.sa«in»— Bwaggsacaz— ■ That fighters with poor seconds are handicapped in the ring has been shown repeatedly in many battles in which the day has been lost by po >r coaching. One of the expert writers of ring bouts, Sandy Qriswo.d, has this to say of the manner in which Burns was handled in his recent fight with O'Brien, during which he almost had the Philadelphian finished: "Burns had nobody behind him who knew beans about seconding a man, and the consequence was that he got a draw where he should have put O'Brien to sleep oa ihe il o' "All that Burns needed was a man to sit behind him and steady him. He was a veritable mad bull in the ring. Why, I never saw anything like him before in my life, and^ I have been reporting prize fights for 35 years. "Burns would shoot out of his cor ner like a rocket at the beginning of each round, and he would tear into O Brien like mad. He had no more idea where he was hitting or how he was hitting than a man not in the building. "In the fifth round he shot over an overhand chop which caught O'Brien squarely between the eyes, and it nearly blinded him. The blood spurt* ed out of O'Brien's nose in a big stream, and under that creeping light which they used to take the pictures he was a ghastly sight. That wild, wicked punch, which Burns to this hour doesn't know how he landed, made Jack wobble. "Here is where a brainy second would have done his work. He would have made Burns steady himself and of er measure O'Brien. If hfi had he would , t have finished him there and then. In- j stead of taking a good aim, Burns ; went at O'Brien like a panther would at a young lamb. He 'lid everything but the right thing. He mauled and .j pawed and hauled and tugged and ; t tussled. "Weak as he was, O'Brien never lost his head, and it was this that car ried him through the wicked mill. Burns in O'Brien's place would have teen whipped in six rounds, for he tesn't the head. After the fifth round O'Brien laid up a dozen rounds, and he finished like a whirlwind. He punched Burns all over the ring and had him going. The first few rounds of the fight were also O'Brien's. "At the outset it looked easy for Jack. He hit Burns every time he led, not missing him once. I didn't think Burns would last over six rounds but he was too strong for Jack, who was 15 pounds lighter. "Bums is a big. sbtrong, willing fighter, who has a lot to learn yet. If put in the hands of a man like Bill' Delaney he would beat a lot of good men. but not Jeffries." Another uninteresting battle on the coast will be that between James Britt and Willie Fitzgerald tonight. When, Britt tackled poor Terry McGovern in the garden last summer ring followers were quickly convinced that Britt was overrated. In a twenty, instead oi a ten round, bout that night McGovern would have knocked Britt into the middle of Sleepy Hollow, and Terry, even then, was in a delirious mental and physical condition. Gans' victory over Nelson made all of the othei lightweights look cheap, a reason why this Britt-Fitzgerald affair does not appeal to everybody. Sixteen jockeys were killed on the various race tracks throughout the country in the past year. Some were steeplechase riders, the branch of the sport that is particularly hazardous, but the majority were riders of race mad thoroughbreds that competed for turf prizes on the flat. A few were victims of accidents outside race track grounds, but most of the little fellows came to an untimely end while sporting silk. The latest fatality in the ranks of the riders occurred a few weeks ago. Levine Sewell, one of America's most famous jockeys, was killed while riding a 100 to 1 shot at the Aqueduct track. Robert Fitzsimmons expressed sur prise at a published statement that Hugo Kelly, the claimant of the mid dleweight championship,'' is out with a challenge to fight any man in Amer ica in that division. "I would like to know how this fellow Kelly has any right to claim the title," said Fitz. "I would like to know where I ever ! lost it. No middleweight in the world ever licked me yet. and, furthermore, ! I don't believe there is a middleweight ! in the world today who is willing to meet me. 1 am and have been for years the middleweight and light heavyweight champion of the world and as all the world knows, I have had to go far out of my class as far as weight is concerned to get a fight i in recent years. Who is this man Kel- j ly, anyhow?" The next heavyweight mill on the coast will be between George Gard ner, who was beaten by Old Man Fitz simmons some time ago, and Al. Kauf mann, who was a mark for Philadel phia Jack O'Brien recently. They will come together at Los Angeles within three weeks, but it is doubtful if they will draw flies. The real interest is at present centered in a fight between Jack O'Brien and either O'Brien or Tommy Bums. If Johnson should be able to beat both of these men he would probably put it right up to Jeffries to come out of retirement and meet him for the title. Battling Nelson may have the dis- , tlnction of becoming the richest pug- j ilist in this or any other country. In Reno, Nev., there is a company called the Battling Nelson Mining company. Nelson secured this property when he was training for the Gans fight, and he was notified last week that a rich find had been made on his claim. President Ebbets of the Brooklyn baseball club plans to sell First Base man Jordan and Right Fielder Lum ley to the New York Nation league club for $25,000 cash. This offer was made to Ebbets. it is said, some time ago and the money looks so big the Brooklyn magnate now is wavering perceptibly. Manager Donovan of Brooklyn has threatened to resign if the sale is made. England wants the Olympic games for Tandon. Lord Desborough. chair man of the British Olympic associa tion, has made public the following statement: "At a meeting of the council of the British Olympic associa tion, it was decided that the fourth celebration of the original series of Olympic games should be held In Lon don in the month of July, 1908. Rome was suggested for the revival, but as that did not prove practical, the offer was made to England, and that offer the committee has seen its way to accept." Burns Is one of tbe most sensitiv# men that the ring has produced. He reads all the descriptions of his battles and is moved according to the tenor of the criticism. He is carried away with the fight pictures and keeps his eyes glued on the canvas when they are being run off. He strives to get some points by seeing the pictures of ten and hopes to improve his own methods by observation of the awk ward poses which he assumes at times.

PAUL'S BIG TUNNEL. \ Eight Hours on Montana Side, Ten In Idaho. Wallace, Idaho, Dec. 27.—An odd situation arises in connection with the driving of the tunnel for the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad to con nect the states of Idaho and Montana. An eight-hour law has been passed in Montana, but none exists in Idaho. In consequence the men working on the Montana side are required to work only eight hour shifts while those on the Idaho side work 10 hours. In ad dition the men on the Montana side are paid $3.50 a day, while those on the Idaho side only receive $3 for 10 hours' work. The question arises as to what the result will be if the Idaho men pene trate first into Montana, or if the Montana men penetrate first into Idaho, or will both sides be required to quit as soon as the exact boundary line has been reached? It is expected , t j, a f some peculiar questions will arise j n connection with the work, ; About 15(1 men are at work on the Montana side and also a number of surveying crews. An open cut of about .j (l f ee t j n ex t en t has been started and ; t j,is j s t0 (] U g ou ^ by nleans Q f a a steam shovel, which will be installed later. It is reported that some good look ing ore has already been exposed, and prospectors and miners who know the country well state that at least three large ore bodies will be tapped as the tunnel progresses. All the adjacent mineral land has been acquired by the railroad company, but it is not known whether any action will be taken with regard to mining. The location of the ore bodies, together with the wagon road that has been built over the mountains, will be of the greatest ben efit to miners and prospectors. Danger in Asking Advice.

Ho. NEEDLESSNESS OF CHILD LABOR. or One Hundred Years of Legislative Re form and Much Left to be Done. It is a far cry from present condi tions if the child labor problem to the days when the British parliament, more than a century ago, passed the first factory act for the protection of the little ones who were transferred from the work houses to the mill bar racks, and worked from twelve to fourteen hours a day in the mills. Tile world has advanced along human itarian lines a long distance since the times when it was common to find 9-year-old boys and • girls delving in the mines, and when the mill and I 1 j j ! j mine owners resisted with all the in fluence at their command the meagre restrictive legislation which was at tempted to meet and correct these conditions. Yet the fact that great states of the American union today have been willing to go no further than to fix the age limit for mill la bor at 12 and 13 years, and the exist ence of great industries which con tinue to employ children on the pre tense of economic necessity, furnish irrefutable Justification for the move ment which the National Child Labor Committee represents. The day is or should be passed when there is need for argument against the evil and the needlessness of child labor. Experience has proved the lat ter to the satisfaction of economists. The utilization of children in mill work not only reduces the opportun ities and rewards of adult labor, but it retards the inventive faculty. In the vast majority of cases it has been demonstrated that the labor now still done by children can be performed by machinery, and at less expense. _______ __ And this leaves out of consideration altogether the tremendous ills of pre mature employment and the deterior ation of the race that must inevit ably result from the stunting of the child's growth and the deprivation of health and education which are insep arable attendants of the system. The needs of the hour are not only better law£ but such an education of the public that the laws we have shall be enforced. Restrictive legislation as to night employment of children and a3 to age limit and school at tendance is worse than useless if it is ignored. The inscription on a stat ute of an ideal law is but the begin ning of the work of reformation, which at the best will be slow and laborious. ft ft ftftOMtftff to observe that the same obstacles are interposed to the progress of the present day move ment as were encountered by the re formers of the middle of the last cen tury. A mistaken humanitarlanism may find in exceptional instances defense of child labor in the necessi ties of parents, but the remedy here should be applied in the right and not the wrong way. Moreover, com petition is not so tyrannical a master of the destinies of man that it must be allowed to cheapen everything to the limit of squalor and uncleanness. Cheap labor is not the only recourse; better quality will gain in the long run, and that will not be attained by the lower but by the higher methods of workmanship. So also the argu ment that is heard that the children who are employed in mills and mines, in glass factories and the like, are worthy of no better fate—are not cap able of elevation through education— must be dismissed as unworthy of i the age in which we live and of the humane ideals toward which our civ ilization is tending. —Philadelphia Ledger. in I Notice of Sale of Real Estate at Pri vate Sale. 1 In the District Court of the Tenth Judicial District of the State of Mon tana, in and for the county of j Meagher. j In the matter of the estate and ! guardianship of Wilda Woodhouse, a j minor.—Notice of sale of real estate at private sale.
