Records Show That He Has Made Sig Profits for Madison Garden. (By RINGSIDE.) NEW TORK, Oct. 21.--They--a. cliqun of burrowing "sportsmen"--are trying to oust James Jay Johnston as matchmaker find manager of the Show corporation, which conducts boxing bouts in Madison Square Garden. James Jay--It need to bo Joy--is making a determined stand, but the political aspect has crept into the controversy, and It will take a fighter pdbsesslng Johnson'e Indomitable spirit to cope successfully with the abnoxlous element. Johnston presents some forceful arguments why he should be retained. And he backs these arguments with facU and cold figures. What he may lack in lra«n. Johnston more than makes up for in brain. His most convincing argument in favor of his retention Is that the Garden has never lost a penny on a box- Ing match since he was installed as matchmaker. This Is more than can be said for Johnston's four predecessors. These sen- tlernen all ante-dated Johnston as super- visee of Garden boxing shows since the Prattley law went into effect, but not one turned in an account that showed n profit for the Garden general management. It was with a view of getting results-in the form of huge profits--that the Garden directors secured Johnston after his predecessors had utterly failed And Johnston made good to such an extent that he at once became the foremost promoter of boxing matches In the country, superseding Jimmy Coffroth in this respect. And for his Judicious management, and money-making proclivities, they are try- inpr to give James Jay the "gate" Onc« the Juggernaut Politics trolls at the heels of one It Is well to get off the hlghway Appended are some statistics which s«ern to prove that Johnston Js peculiarly adapted to managing the boxing exhibitions In the great metropolis's /amphitheatre: Three Big Bouts. PurinK 1hc month of March, 191B, Johnston had a hand in staging three bouts, and the gate receipts aggregated J1S4.- 038 50. The WIIlnrd-Moran fight whlr-h Johnston was Instrumental In bringing to tbe Garden. pro\ed a sufficient magnet to attract 151,000 at the box office It Is quite true that "Tex" RIckard clinched the match and was the nominal promoter, but It wns Johnston who In- ducPd the westerner to stape It in the Garden and thu swelled the coffers of the Gnrdfn dlrrctors to the extent of JJB.OOO This Is the largest sum ever paid for one day's rental of the Garden The two other bouts which were conducted hv Johnston last March were tho Leonard-Dundee and i W»l«sh-Lfonard matches. The former drew $14 5J1 50 ·whrn everyone predicted a financial failure for Johnston; -while the I eonnrd- Welsh affair showed receipts of $28 fi07. Tlic Intter sum, it must be remembeted, ·wits taken In just «lx days after the Mornn-Wlllard flifht of March 25 Leonard and Dundee fousht on March 8. Johnston furnished more proof of his capnhtlltlos The totnl net profits for twelve flRhts ynder his regime ran up to $53,281. This was after all expenses hnd been raid off. and under this head comes tho rental of $1,000 for each fight The $1.000 Is deducted before a fight starts. In order to assure th» Garden folks of at least a slight return for opening the doom. The larpest sum of course, accrued from the WIllnrd-Moran fiKlit while the smnllest sum $2,400. w»s drawn bv Lnnsr- ford and»McVey. the burly colored heavyweights And even with this meagre sum of $2 400 Johnston was able to pay off theTlKhters nnd place more than $1.000 In the hr.ndS'Of the Rtirden officials Johnston hns been directing boxing Uout.s In the Garden for clKhteen months. »nd In all that time has neier staged a "bloomer." BO far ns «pctrnrtlng a profit for the Gnrden Is concerned Tet this Is the man they nre sscpklnif to eject, and in his place Install a mnn whose practical knowledge of the boding- game Is confined to witnessing nn occasional boxing exhibition Politics is to blnmp for the existing: chaos in Garden affairs, and the sooner this disturbing clement Is removed from the premises the sooner New York'a -bovlnp public will be enabled to see some real fistic fireworks. For Johnston has a number of attractive matches m contemplation, If Johnston Is removed hy the powers that be, he w i l l immediately "buck" the Garden contlnsent hy staging the matches he has In mind nt a rival cluh, which in size is second only to Madison Square Garden. And then we'll see If Johnston Is really the promoting senlus he hns thus far seemed to have shown himself to be LEftCUE TO OPEN Commercial Bowling League Is New Organization to Start Monday.

Lu4wig Broa. v«. ' DETROIT, Mich.. Oct. 21--After twenty-four hours in shelter, while a flfty-mlla gate lashed the great lakes to fury, lake shipping was resumed tonight. The storm, had abated, but it took a toll of seven lives ono: sent two ships to the bottom of Lake Erie. Only timely warnings from the government weather bureau, officials frere declared, prevented a repetition of the scenes of "Black Friday" in November, 1913, when a score of ships ware battered to pieces on the great lakes, and 250 sailors died. - "With the arrival of steamer F. O. Hart-well, at Fairport this afternoon, bearing ten survivors from the wrack of the steamer Marshall F. Butters, the toll from last night's storm was definitely fixed at seyen. Of these, six perished when the barge D. L. Filer, foundered off Bar Point, ;Lake Erie, after a futile twelve-hour battle against the heavy seas. The seventh vt-as the wheelman of the Butters, who died when the lumber carrier went down off Southeast Shoal, in Lake Erie. Captain John Mattison, of Muskegon, was the sole survivor of the crew of seven aboard the barge Filer. He was rescued from the rigging of his sunken, ship by members of the crew of the passenger liner ( Western States, who reached him in a lifeboat after a thrilling two-hour battle with the graves. One by one the others of the Filer's crew had dropped to their death from the boat's rigging:, benumbed by the all night -wait for rescue in the bitter cold. Warns Voters Against Over- Confidence-In the Results., Politics Breaks Out Among Troops on the Border EL. PASO. Tex.. Oct. 21.--A call for an efflcenecy board to try two officers of the Pennsylvania National guard for Insubordination stirred military- camp* here today., as an cipoie of the grasp ·tate politic* has no militia troops en the border is expected to result. The n*m«« of politicians of national prominence will be brought Into the tangle, through their Interference In the 'nterest of noHtlcui favorites. It Is predicted Captain Albert Snyder and Lieutenant M, VT. Miller are the t w o officers to be tried. When their resignation* were demanded these officers refused and Major General Charles M .Clement Issued the call for a trial board. Th« officers *re said, to have refused to obey the orders of their commander, referring to hlm'aa "procuring an education drmwlac nickel bc«r» for bum*" An encouraging report on ^the out^ look for the passage of the dry amendment in Nebraska, coupled with a, warning against over-confidence, ,1s contained in a statement issued Satur.. day by Chairman "W. T. Thompson of the Nebraska Dry federation. He says. "The compaign for the amendment is progressing in a very satisfactory manner. Reports coming in from the many counties in the state indicate general activity, The county and local federations are quite generally carry- Ing on a school house campaign reaching the farmers who are for the most part intensely interested in and enthusiastic for the amendment. They are coming to understand as never bo- fore how they have been double- crossed under the present liquor licence system whereby they have been required to pay Increased taxes to carry on criminal prosecution and to pay the costs for maintaining as large number of the Insane, paupers and inebriates produced by the traffic or incidental thereto from which they derive not a. penny of revenue from the license money, paid. "The people are generally coming to see that a traffic which ppssesses no Intrinsic.merit but winch is productive of'all manner of evil should not be longer tolerated even under a system of legalized bribery where the city and townspeople have been bribed through the license fee to tolerate the saloon. From Out In State. "Most encouraging: reports are coming in from all over the state where public meetings have been held In the interest of the amendment. One person reports that in a certain large town of the state where a year ago it would have been impossible to find ten men who -would listen ten minutes to a temperance speech a crowd of 500 men last week stood tt,o and one-half hours listening to Dr. Phifer of Demer gHIng an account of the wonderful good results that had come to the city of Denver and the stute of Colorado from t headoption of statewide prohibition. "During the last few weeks, the state federation has placed in US hands of voters large amounts of literature printed in English. German and Bohemian languages. It has also placed In the hands of voters more than 100.000 cards showinc; the form of the submission of the amendment as It will appear on the official bal- loti and explaining the method for \otlncr in favor of it In addition to this it has sent to the temperance workers throughout the state to be posted in conspicuous places cards explaining how to vote correctly for the amendment. The manner of submission of the prohibitory amendment and the way to properly vote thereon Is being extensively advertised in the leading newspapers of the state and nianv countrv papers are carrying the same advertisements. v \ "The false statements and representations published so extensively in the newspapers by the Nebraska Prosperity (for the breweries) league have been so fullv shown to be false bv the most convincing evidence th«t they are no longer being taken seriously. 1 In fact, they h a \ e turned out to be boomerangs that ha^e tho appearance of hurting rather than helping the opposition against the amen.l- ment. / Especially 1* this true since many of thfe papers ttmt have published the dope as advertising matter hav,c voluntarily taken pains to point out Its fallacious character through their editorial columns. Spjeaking Campaign. "The speaking campaign, under the management of Judjce Epperson has. during the past month, been one of the most Interesting, spirited and successful campaigns that has been put on In this state In tho last twenty-five years, and It is proposed to keep' It up without abatement until election day'.

PHOENIX, Ariz., Oct. 21,--Seven thousand Arizona folks packed the Polk street baseball grounds here Saturday afternoon to see and hear "Teddy" Roosevelt. Phoenix and Maricopa county contributed five thousand, and the surrounding counties of Pima, Pln- #1, Yuma, which 5re big as twice that many states back east, gave the remainder. It was here in this section that i Roosevelt recruited most of his rough t riders and it is this country hereabout that jumped some $200 an acre in value right after the colonel dedicated the irrigation dam that bears his name. So his coming was like the proverbial "welcome home," Roosevelt, in thoroughly Roosevelt fashion, sensed the sort of audience that sat sweltering before him. under a searing- Arizona sun. He had been told on the way from Prescott here by "Tom" Campbell, republican candidate for governor, that the state was sure democratic, and "that there is no interest in the Mexican question here. He wanted Roosevelt to include some other subjects, but the colonel declined. Talked Arizona Brogue. / "That's the very reason I'll say what I want to say. We will see if we can't stir up something ia the Mexican issue." Throughout his rather long address there was scarcely an "ing" suffiz pronounced. Roosevelt dropped- into Arizona cowboy talk like a duck takes to water. He had been dropping more and more into plains dialect the farther west he got for two days. His audience here was chieffy farmers and cattle raisers. There was a big- delegation of Old S-oldiers from Tucson nnd scores of Indians present. A band of full blooded red skms, who represented ten tribes, furnished the "hail to the chief" stuft. s Just the colonel started his speech. 3-year-old Regina Piper gave the mdvie men an added feature by being- passed up over the railing of the speakers stand wrapped irr an. American flag and bearing a bunch of American beauties. The colonel chucked her chin, tossed her in the air and then back to her pa, who almost dropped her trying to get into the movie pictures, along with small daughter and the colonel. / Met Old Friends. Roose\elt met some more old cow- hoy friends when h landed nt tho depot. Prominent nmon g -them was Ben Daniels, another halt eared gent of belligerent proclivities who .lost p.irt of his aural appetidnep when it grot between another cent's molar* (is they happened to come together. Ben. Incidentally, is'the boy who, as he went in to lunch »t the \Vhlt« house with the then British ambassador. Lord Brjce. as a fellow guest, solemnly promised the colonel "thet no matter what happened he wouldn't do no shooting 1 at Lord Bryce's feet," Ben's friends, most of whom are democrats, said he will be elected sheriff next month. Roosevelt held closely to his prepared text after a brier extemporaneous introduction in which he said he made his appeal for Hughes "not as partisan, but on the grounds of sound Americanism." In criticising Secretary McAdoo for upholding the president, he said' "I would like to call McAdoo Mr. Wilson's right hand man, if I didn't think it would offend Jressrs. Daniels and Baker,'' He pleaded for full allegiance to America, 'not the fifty- fifty stuff." Criticises Wilson. His speech -was the bitterest de- nounciation he has yet made of President "Wilson and it included, the declaration that had he been president he -would either . have recognized Huerta or intervened in. Mexico .after the first Americans were killed. "Oh, if Mr. Wilson had only had the courage and resolution of Old Hickory," Roosevelt declared in sarcastic falsetto, "he'd have made good his fine words that have been meaningless. "You folks all know thot the sheriff, the rnaishal, the police chief are peace officers. But you also know, they can't keep the peace if they're too nroud to fig:h1." The colonel shook hands with several thousand of his audience after speaking. This evening he dined at the home of Dwxght B. Heard, a close personal and political friend. A dozen of the colonel's friends and some of hi* lough rider officers were guests. The colonel took a wallop at demo* orats in g-eneral when it waj3 discovered someone had boarded the train at Prescott and had left a lot of Wilson pictures on his special. Several Pullman hair brushes were missed. "That's only to be expected of democrats," said the colonel, when he found his hairbrush among the absent.
