NOT MANY LEFT I MATTINGLYS RETIREMENT OF C.K.C BILLINGS IS A SEVERE BLOW TO HARNESS RACING WORLD BY PAUL PURMAN. The harness racing world has been staggered by the announcement that C. K. a. Billings will dispose of his great breeding farm In Virginia, practically all of his string of great trotters and pacers and retire from racing and breeding. The retirement of Billings la certain to be a serious Mow to the pastime he has been interested In for more than 26 years as amateur relnsman, breeder and exhibitor. His stables include the greatest trot ters of a generation. Including Lou Dll- i Ion, l:69tt, world s fastest trotting mare and the first trotter to step a mile under ! two minutes; Uhlan, 1:54H, the fastest harness horse; The Harvester, 2:01. for mer champion trotting stallion; William, trotting pacer, and ■» and pacers l:58Vfc, champion more than 100 other trotte of rare breeding and speed Billings has announced his intention of keeping Lou Dillon and Chian when he sells his f 1,000,000 breeding farm at Curl» Neck, Ya , but the rest of the string will go on the block sometime in Mai Billings beet ting world as late nineties, professionally. ■ a figure matinee has neve in the trot Irlver in the raced horses UMPIRES NOW SEEK IRE PROTECTION OF UNION 'Leak" From Washington In timates They Are Anx ious to Join. New York, Feb. 3.—The umpires want a union charter from tne American Fed eration of Labor, says a leak from Wash ington. The frail callers of balls and strikes desire more ample police pro tection. Also a minimum salary scale. Likewise the barring of Income cuts in midse&Aon. In addition, improved quart ers at the baseball parks They believe that snuggled close to the bosom of or ganized labor they can be carried through through the turnstile into fhe golden land where dreams are realized. That harsh laugh which rends the em pyrean blue come» from the deep chests of those other seekers of union guardian ship. the baseball players. In their eyes the banding of tHe timid, sensitive urn ! pires against brutal aggression on the It to a diamond Is akin to a demand from Jungle tiger, that a stockade ba erected to bar out the aggressive and vicious butter flies. On many a slow, reluctant trip to the clubhouse, made at the behest of one or another of these tyrants, blithe . . , . ,, , , pictures of a happier time to come when the umpires w«»uld be boiled in oil at the close of each game and their successors chosen In a convalescent ward at the point of a gun. have arisen In the play ers* minds.

If verbal re proofs of this nature are to be answered by a wild rush of the constabulary to ward the grand stand, the fans want to know about It In advance. As for the matter of improved quarters In the clubhouse for the umpires, the harassed magnates are likely to be the only dissenters. It will be felt generally that boudoirs hung with stone colored velvet draperies and decorated in Ivory should be provide«! for members of the field tribunals. That a scented bath and an attentive valet should await their return from their afternoon's labor goes without saying. LEONARD AND HIS "UP STAGE" STUFF 'Dutch'' I^eonard, the Boston Red Box , , . . .

At Yueiff Hussane in particular, a» well as on account of the way his proposed match between Freberg and Hussane has turned out. The arrangements had been made to hold the bout at the Empire next Tuesday night. Then came word that it would be necessary to postpone it until the tenth of the month. Pat switched his plans and made it for the tenth and announced in the morning papers that the bout would be held on Saturday evening. This morning, however, word came In the form of a telegram from Chi cago that Hussane slipped" (the wire didn't say how) last night and broke his leg and that he would not be able to wrestle again for month». Hussane's manager proposed sending Charley Cutler to Butte to take Hussane's place with Freberg. Pat. however, was inclined to doubt the story of Hussane's leg and wired back that he thought it was a "liga ment in his heart which was broken." He also said that the match was off as he did not care to have Cutler come here as the fans had seen all they wished of the big Chicago grappler. Says He is Yellow. Pat also, while in the office of the Post this morning, took occasion to pay his respects to Hussane. And Pat didn't mince words one bit. "That Hussane has got a yellow* streak in him." said he, "and 1 firmly believe that is the real reason why he will not come to Butte. He knew that his match with Freberg would be a stiff one and that If he won he would have to meet me as the winner had agreed to a match here. As a matter of fact he is afraid of me and of Butte. He knows that he can't put anything over on the public here. I will wrestle him here for nothing and turn over all the receipts to the Associated Charities If he will come. "Freberg is willing to carry out his part of the contract but there is no use bringing Cutler here again. "Ad Santel Is another wrestler who Is afraid to show up here. 1 have of fered him a guarantee of $500 and his expenses both ways, but he will not accept. So you see what I am against in trying to give the Butte fans a good bout." CRACK PLAYERS JOIN THE Y. M. A. FIVE The Y. M. A. basketball players are showing good form in the regular practices which are being held at the high school gymnasium. Practices are conducted three times each week, and the first game for the team will be with Boulder next Saturday night. Some new blood, which has been added to the aggregation, has put life in the quintet, and indications are that, de spite the late start, the team will give a good account of Itself before the sea son ends. Among the new players are Molstead of the Seattle Y. M. C. A. five last year and Ashworth and Walt ers. former players with the Mult nomah Athletic club of Portland. "Dutch" Miller of last year's squad Is also among the 15 candidates. Earl Genzberger. who handled the team a year ago, has again been selected to look after the business arrangements. A captain will probably be elected be fore the Boulder game.

"Full many r flower is born to blush unseen and waste its sweetness on the desert air,'' wTote Gray in his elegy. And so It is with a fellow toiler In this office. Yesterday while waiting for the bulletins coming from Washington tel ling of the very grave situation, he busied himself making a sketch. It was, we must admit a wonderful piece of art. He handed it over with the remark that it was a true likeness of ourselves while we were in the wilds of Idaho several years ago. At first we thought that we would publish It in order that the readers might see us as we were in the days "that used to be." Then we feared the other fellows in the office might get "sore," so decided to hold it until B. Martin Baker returns to hold another art exhibit In Butte. Hence the reason why Sligo's efforts have been in vain. Ban Johnson has suggested a home for aged ballplayers.
