United l'ress Leased Wlro.l
New York, Dec. 2. It was an
nounced today that the managers of
Jeffries and Johnson have accepted
the bid of E. M. Rickard, allied with
Jack Gleason, for staging the world's
'championship fight. The proposi
tion accepted was the first offered by
A guaranteed purge of $101,000
and two-thirds of the receipts of the
moving pictures of the great battle.
It is understood hero that Promot
er Coffroth is in the deal with Rick
ard and Gleason, and that the fight
will be hleld in or near San Francis
co. The fighters are figuring a bjg in
come from the moving pictures, and
it is understood that a two-thirds
share of the receipts from that
source was a big factor in the de
cision. The only positive decision as
to the location of thb fight was set
forth in the bid, when it was stated
that the battle must bo held "in Cal
ifornia, Nevada or Utah."

In entering into a combination
with Gleason, it is safe to assume
that the agreement covered every-,
thing, and that wherever;'1 Gleasoli
went Coffroth went with him. There
are some who affect to bellevo'that
Coffroth really did not want the
match himself, and that in doubling
up with Gleason he played a trump
card. It is known that Jim does not
stand any too well Just now with tho
San Mateo authorities, and there is
danger that his license will not be
ronowed, a petition looking to this
end now being before the super

No better or more substantial evi

ON LADIES9 SUITS AND COATS
Do your trading at Salem's most progressive store that grows with leaps and bounds be
cause we do the business; We can afford to give low prices because we are as busy as
bees ail the time and can live on smaller profits than the fellow who only makes a few
sales every day, ; '
in population and wealth, the city of
Salem has enjoyed marvelous growth
, financially and in point of popula
tion during tho past year, as Is re
flected by a comparison of the
amount of deposits in the several
banks, and the postofllco receipts.
The increased wealth of tho peo
ple of Salem, as well as the num
ber, is unmistakably and strikingly
demonstrated by a collection of sta
tistics, which show a total increase
of $617,303.80 in tho amount of de
posits in the three banks of the city
for tho year ending November 1,
1909, as compared with the corre
sponding period last year. But tho
most notable evidence of tho growth
of the city, commercially as well as
in point of population, is perhaps
more convincingly shown by tho won
derful increase in the amount of
postal riecolpts for tho year ending
October 1, as compared to tho corre
sponding fiscal years of 1906, 1907
While the accompanying statement
of postal receipts only show an actual
Increase of about $2000 for tho
fiscal year of 1909 over thoso of last
year, tho receipts for 1908 woro
swollen about ?uuuu anovo normal,,
on account of referendum pot'itloifs
and other election mall, ns a matter
of fact tho actual increase in re
ceipts for 1909 is about $8000 above
tho normal of last year.
