SALT LAKE LOSES
FIGHT FOR TIGHT
Coffroth's Arena at Colma to
See Bid Jeffries-Johnson
Last Conference With Rickard Re
sults in Unofficial Announce
s nient That Calfornla Will
Get World Scrap.
6 ALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 8. (Special)
James J. Jeffries and Jack Johnson will
meet July 4th in Croffroth's arena at
Colma or at San Mateo, close to San
Francisco, or in the Oolden Gate city
Itnelf, for the heavyweight championship
f the world. This Is unofficial, but un
Tex Rickard and Jack Gleason broke
off negotiations temporarily tonight with
the place for the bout apparently in the
air as much as ever, but reliable inside
Information has it that Rickard has given
up and that Gleason has won in his tight
for San Francisco.
The only possible chance Utah has to
fret the fight is for the business men of
the city and state to rally to Rickard's
support in such numbers as to over
whelm fthe state authorities. Then the
light weuld have to go outside this county
on account of the County Attorney, who
has barred the match here.
As all the state authorities hold of
fices through the Mormon Church this
would put the church on record as fac
orirfg prizefights, and it is believed that
Institution would not care to have this
odium attached to It.
The last conference today ended with
Rickard gloomy and Gleason chesty.
Rickard refused to say anything definite,
but he is authoritatively quoted as say
ing that the fight goes to California.
Before leaving here the the East,
Sam Berger said: "Why, between you
and the rest of us, 'Frisco is the place
where the light Is most desired. Jeff
wants it there, but It's none of our mess
right now. When the promoters get
through with the wrangle everything will
be announced and final. There is no
doubt but that 'Frisco is most desired
by everyone. Not until there Is an ac
tual brach between Rickard and Gleason,
however, will he bother with it. If such
. a breach occurs, of course, the fighters
will step In and say something.'"

BEEF TRUST SCALES LIE
BOISE MEAT C03IBINES MAN
AGER FOUND GUILTY.
Lard Pails Short-Weight, Is Verdict.
Sentence Tomorrow Victory
First in 2 3 Years.
BOISE, Idaho, Feb. 8. (Special.)
State Pure Food Commissioner Wallls
won a signal victory for the State of
Idaho late tonight, the first of its kind
for 23 years, or since the short-weight
law was placed on'the statute books,
when he secured a verdict of guilty
against George Schwitzer, manager of
the Boise Butcher Company and presi
dent of the Boise Meat Trust, on the
charge of selling short-weight lard In
pails. Judge Dunbar will pass sen
The law provides a maximum line of
$300, a prison sentence of six months,
or both fine and imprisonment.
The defense set up by Schwitzer was
that he, as well as other dealers, sold
the lard by the. package instead of
the pound. The palls, however, are
plainly marked, designating the number
of pounds they are supposed to con
tain. The evidence showed that the deal
ers had short-weighted six ounces on
three-pound pails, on five-pound pails
nine ounces and on 10-pound pails from
13 to 15 ounces.
Tomorrow Food Commissioner Wallis
will begin the prosecution of the al
leged misbranded butter case against
Swift & Co., and on Thursday the al
leged short-weight lard case against
W. F. Dolan, a local dealer, who sold
lard manufactured by the Cudahy
Packing Company, will be taken up.
CHILDREN ARE AIDED
MEDICAL INSPECTION OF
Curing of Physical Defects Enables
Pupils to Progress More Rap
Idly With Studies.
HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 8. Medical
inspection in the schools is saving
Pennsylvania a considerable portion of
$2,160,000 which otherwise would be
wasted on efforts to educate pupils
who. by reason of removable physical
defects, are unable to profit by their
instruction, according to the estimate
of Leonard P. Ayres, assistant director
of the department of child hygiene of
the Russell Sage Foundation in New
Mr. Ayres addressed the department
of superintendents of the Pennsylvania
Educational Association today on the
relation of physical defects t.o school
progress. He said:
"If the children in Pennsylvania are
like their companions in Massachusetts
and New York, about 60 per cent have
seriously decayed teeth. These pupils
require eight and a half years to com

without defects would complete in
"A child with defective breathing re
quires six-tenths of a year longer to
complete eight grades of elementary

"The pupil suffering from enlarged

longer to complete the course than does
the normal, and about one-quarter of
the school children have enlarged

He was followed by Austin E. Griffiths,
the third Republican to aspire to the
nomination. Then came the declaration
of candidacy of Oliver T. Erickson. Will

Miller, all Democrats, and of Ben Humes,
Griffiths began with personalities. He
clearly felt that as the advocate of play
grounds and the champion of a higher
moral tone, he would outstrip his two
Republican competitors. He called Bouil
lon "the chameleon candidate," and he
poked fun at Gill's personal appearance.
GUI made a witty reply, declaring that
it was the first time he had heard that
a political campaign was a beauty con
test. Griffiths, in expectation of corner
ing the church vote, continued his at
tacks, bringing squarely to the front the
social evil and the restricted district as
the paramount issue. Ten days ago he
saw the futility of his campaign, and in
withdrawing attempted to throw his
strength to Bouillon.
But Erickson. the "smokestack" nomi
nee" of the Democrats, took up the gauge
where Griffiths threw it down. Both men
are prohibitionists, and both have de
clared for a town closed tight.
To Gill has been paid the unusual trib
ute of a noon-day meeting that packed
the Grand opera-house from pit to dome.
He is regarded as a rough diamond. His
language is straight to the point. The

Position Made Clear.
He left no doubt in the minds of his
auditors as to his position on the ques
tion of a restricted district:
When I am Mayor a district will be set
aside for those unfortunates. There will be
no red lights about It, no brassbands and
no billboards. It will be quietly conducted,
and policemen will be patrolling their beats
about It. I don't think I shall ever go
back to the fine system. Outside of that
district I win give you a cleaner city than
you have ever had.
Miller started as a Democrat. He is
now recognized as the representative of
labor. He is a member of the Barbers'
Union, although a practicing lawyer. He
has -taken, the same ground as Gill with
respect to a restricted district, and he has
