SlililOXS SPEAKS After congratulating the trades un- ionists on the success of the celebra- tio'n which was without doubt the greatest ever held in the city, W. C. Simmons, M.P.P., gave n short" ad- Ire.'js in which he stated that the government is the people, composed of men sent to parliament by free- lold electors. There arc other class- 's than workingmen to be considered and he believed that the foundation or the attainment of their demands rested in the development of the ag- ricultural industry. Their policy should one of construction, not destruction, to improve their condi- tions by building all up.

Both men entered the ring in apparently perfect condition. Neither had ever been knocked out, Ketchell had had a decision over Papke in a ten round bout. The bout turned out to be one of the bloodiest in ring history. Ketch- ell was plainly the favorite of the crowd which had been betting on him 2 to 1. When James J. Jeffries, the refcroe called time and Ketchell walked to the centre extending his hand for the shake, Papke ignored the hand and -went at the Michigan man with the impetuosity that has won him the title of "Thunderbolt." The fight was practically 'over in a minute and twenty seconds after the gong sounded. From that time on it was mostly a question as to how long Ketchell would last. Papke fought with such fury that thc defeated champion was simply lifted off his feet four times the camps. They have not been hoard of since, although searching parties havft been seeking, for them all af- ternoon and evening. ong these -were the Brick! Ma- sons and Plasterers, Federal Laborers Carpentei-s and Joiners, Teamsters, Structural Steel Workers, Miners and others. j SPEECHES OX SQUARE After tho parade had covered the route set out, the crowd assembled oa the square and listened to sever- al short addresses. The President of the-Trades and Labor Council, Sid Duncan, opened up the proceedings with a short address in which he said that the fight of the unionists was for better wages and shorter hours. They had no enmity for the corporations nor for the man .who would not join the union but they confessed to an ill-will against the strike breakers. In the present C. P. R. strike victory for the company will mean strife and disturbance for years as other companies will. also attempt ,to break the unions but if the strikers win there peace. He urged that the union should be as united in demanding the label on all their goods as they are in pa- rading. If they were c'vcry shop in America would be eager to put the label on their products.

The decision seemed to please the crowd and there were cheers for each fighter as lie wended his way from the ring. The fight on the whole was rather tame but this was offset by the cleverness of the fighters. It was marked by Moran's aggressiveness and his all around defense. The con- sensus of opinion was that the Cali- fornian did not show up in as good form as in former contests. rnspinsBURG AND DETROIT 100 Yards W. Haynes; 2. and Attell's cleverness in blocking R. C.
