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
"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
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
"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

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.

Eight Hours on Montana Side, Ten In
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

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.

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
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
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
