Look Out for the Fighter Who Thinks More of His Oratory Than of His Punches CALL'S DOUBLE PAGE OF SPORTS RITCHIE AND MURPHY SQUARE OFF TONIGHT IN 20 ROUND BATTLE WILLIAM J. SLATTERY For the third time since he won the lightweight championship of the world from Ad Wolgast a little more than a year ago Willie Ritchie will defend it this evening in the Eighth street arena against Tommy Murphy *of New York. A few months ago the fans of San Francisco were demand ing that Ritchie forsake the footlights, forget the alleged "soft ones" and give Murphy a chance at his title. These same men today have made Ritchie a 10 to 4 chance over the New Yorker, This denotes that they have either lost confidence in Murphy's ability as a lighter or else they believe that Ritchie has improved so much in the meantime that he is now in a class by himself at 135 pounds. Everybody who takes an interest fight, yet few of them care to register a bet except on the champion. The Murphy shouters have faded away, f...

FUEL TRIAL NEEDS NEW VENIRE Western's Officials Have So Many Friends, Dooling Or ders Special Talesmen A special venire has been ordered by Federal Judge M. T. Dooling to try the Western Fuel case, as the orig inal panel of 76 names has been ex hausted. The trial of the eight of ficials of the Western Fuel company on the charge of defrauding the gov ernment of customs dues on imported coal by false weighing has shown the defendants to be so well known that lt has proved well nigh impossible for the prosecution to find jurors on the original panel whose relations were not more or less friendly with the defendants. In many cases the questioning of Special Prosecutor Matt I. Sullivan would disclose that the prospective Juror belonged to the Pacific Union club with John L. Howard. Sidney V. Smith and other defendants, or that the juror frequently met one of the defendants at the Bohemian club, the C ommercial club or on the golf links of a peninsular club.

SPRECKELS, Vice President and Treasurer Money of Widows and Orphans Safe in City Bonds Superior Judge Gives Good Advice: "Buy San Francisco Securities With Trust Funds" In the dark ages of a few years ago, when capital tried to pre tend that the government had no right to investigate its methods and its earnings, the more imaginative of the special pleaders used to invoke an interesting sentimental reason to forestall investi gation. These sentimentalists would say that any curtailment of the earnings of corporations, such as railroads or trusts or insur ance companies, was a robbery of widows and orphans, for the money of widows and orphans was invested in these concerns. The corrupt monopolists made a great ado while they were hiding behind the petticoats and kilts of the wicked widows and orphans who made corporations possible. Now, as a matter of fact, widows and orphans are, on the who...

Small as the penny is, it is not spurned by the big banks with mil lions of dollars of capital. A special man is assigned to do nothing but make collections of these savings of pennies and it is safe to say that the aggregate would keep Mr. Scoffer in grand style if he possessed it as an income.
