GLEASONWINS CONTENTION 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 doubtedly correct. 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.'" TRANSFER OF PLAYERS MADE President Lynch, or National League, Makes Announcements. NEW YORK. Feb. 8. Thomas J.

LETTER GIVES GOOD CLEW Tnrlock Woman Tells of Seeing Girl Answering Description in Port land, Where She Telephoned About Man at Tamalpais. SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 8- The Identity of the woman whose body was found on the slope of Mount Tamalpais last Hhurs day afternoon, which appeared solved, yes terday, still remains a mystery. The police have discovered that the girl known as "Dutchy," who was a student in Mrs. Eleanor Llttlefield's hairdressing establishment, is alive- and living In this city. Her name is Claudia Jurgensen. Nothing is known here of the girl, Ellen Jensen, whose trunk is now being held In local storehouse. A letter was received by Coroner Sawyer, of Marin County, today from Mrs. Pearl Wells, of Turlock. Cal.. saying that the writer had met a young woman answering the description of the mur dered girl on a trip to Portland by boat. The girl, upon her arrival in Portland, telephoned to some friend to ascertain the whereabouts of a man named Frank, and she was told that he was employed on the railroad on Mount Tamalpais. The girl left Portland the next day for Cali fornia. Mrs. Wells says In the letter that she could identify the things the girl wore If she saw them. Work has turned upon this clew, which is regarded as excellent. Still another identification was fur nished to the Marion County authorities today by Mrs. Josephine Munnedun, of Berkeley, who told them she believed the body was that of her daughter, Mrs. James Kutchnor. Her daughter was married to a miner in Alsaka 11 years ago and Mrs. Munnedun last heard of her at Tonopah, Nev.. in September, 1909. The mother declared that the comb was very similar to one her daughter wore and the clothes were the kind she was In the habit of wearing. 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 tence tomorrow. 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 SCHOOLS PROFITABLE. 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 York. 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 plete a course of study that a child without defects would complete in eight years. "A child with defective breathing re quires six-tenths of a year longer to complete eight grades of elementary scnool work. About one school child in every seven, has defective breathing. "The pupil suffering from enlarged tonsils requires seven-tenths of a year longer to complete the course than does the normal, and about one-quarter of the school children have enlarged tonsils. "Children with adenoids spend nine and one-tenth years in the eight ele mentary grades and those with en larged glands nine and two-tenths years. . About one child in eight has adenoids, and nearly one-half of the pupils suffer from enlarged glands." LOCAL MEN INVADE CELILO They Buy 1 4T Acres and Agree to Build Power Plant. THE DALLES, Or.. Feb, S. (Special. Articles of agreement were filed recently by which Portland men are to become possessed of a large tract of real estate at Celilo. One oontract sets forth that I. H.

GILL AND M00RE LEAD (Continued From First Page.) district; and that if he chose, he would refuse to reappoint Thomson as City Engineer. m 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 lam Hickman Moore and Charles H. Miller, all Democrats, and of Ben Humes, Republican. 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 other night, speaking of franchises, he said: If any belt line railroad wants to spend a million dollars around the city, and that franchise ever gets to me, I'll sign it so quick it will make your head swim. I don't care what people are going to think about it 200 years from now. I want to act for the benefit of this generation -and the children of this generation. Nobody ever looked that far ahead for me. 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 declared unreservedly that his first act as Mayor would be to dismiss City En gineer Thomson. William Hickman Moore, Democrat, has stood aloof. He has not made a speech. His campaign has been managed by George E. Ryan, who has used the mails and billboards for publicity. Moore has relied entirely on his record as ex-Mayor and his standing as a Democrat of the old school. One of the lessons of the campaign has been to illustrate the disintegration of party under the direct primary. Seattle has chosen nominees for Mayor on dec larations wrung from the aspirants after they took the stump. There is no plat form, in the usual acceptation of that term. It has also appeared tn the Seattle cam paign that the only real question over which there was marked difference of opinion as making for an Issue, is the red light district and what shall be done with its populace. Gill and Miller were the only candidates who announced their po sition without wobbling, while their op ponents signified their intention of getting a law through the Legislature empower ing cities to deal with the social evil; but an answer has been made to this contention In effect' that a community cannot license an evil and prohibit it at the same time: and the fear is expressed that the passage of a state law might be to procure the city to open a Pandora's box from which might escape unnum bered ills.
