The old familiar cry will be heard ht I Hobgen park tomorrow afternoon, unless! the elements forbid, for the first time this year when the Iroitmen arc billed to J bustle with the Vancouver dub. Both; teams will arrive from the west on au early train this evening. Tlie ceremonies will begin with a j luncheon at tlie Butte Grill when some 1 one will say .» f«'w nice tilings about the 1 managers of both teams, the players and j the local board of directors. It Is not ! presumed that Cmplrc Iv knmn will be i eulogized by any of tin Butte hackers, us last week he forfeited a fourteen Inning game to Tacoma because a Butte man kicked and again on Saturday drove half a the Ironmen from the Held when another decision was di? puted.

The pro gram ut the park will be brief—thank goodness—ami will consist merely of rais ing a I'nlted States flag and the lieax'ing «»f the first ball by Mayor Maloney. There will be no speechmaking at the park, the directors state. However, they may be double crassed, as his "utnps" or some ot I the players may inject u few extempo I ] I I «neons remarks as the game progresses. But that is alwajxs to be expected. It is not known today Just who McGill nit y will use in the box, but It is probable that the choice lies between "Lofty' Sohrooder and "Big Ben" Hunt.
