LITTLE AT STAKE
Will Put Up Fight with Leon
ard Instead of Running
a Foot Race
New York, July 28. Freddie Welsh,
lightweight champion of the world, will
take hie title into the ring with him
tonight when he meets Benuy Leonard,
the pride of Harlem for the second time.
There are those among the sporting, f ra
ternity who believe the champion really
intends to put up a whirlwind battle
and all the "soft money" pickers are
not arifting to Leonard, despite his de
feat of Welsh at their last meeting.
Leonard's workouts have been strenu
ous, while Welsh has been Bhadow box
ing at Dougluston, L. I.
There is hardly a chance that the
title will come within the grasp of the
Harlem boy, but Leonard 's backers say
he will repeat bis performance of their
last meeting and so decisively defeat
the champion that the fans will demand
a 20-round decision bout. .
Ed Walsh a Hero.

from drowning last night. Walsh swam

FORREST F. DRYDEN,
Demand Is Strong and Prices
for Valley Are From 30
to 32 Cents
The wool market , shows -a healthy
condition; and there oppears to be no
ground .or statements made in certain
newspapers that there is a combination
among buyers to keor prices down.
Valley wool is to a great extent being
held by the growers, most of whom
want 35 cents ajpound, and this is so
much more than the . buyers are will
ing to pay for it that it is difficult
to tell wiien any wi'.l be sold.
Wm. Brown, Salem wool merchant,
stated iu an interview with a Capital
Journal representative this morning
that valley wools started off. rather
high this ye,ar, comparing prices here
nt the buying with the real selling
values in Boston. Growers and farm
ers generally looked for a repetition
of the mohair business. This failed to
materialize, and at present values are
about on a pnrtiy with the eastern mar
ket. Locally,, prices are quoted 30
cents for coarse and 32 cents for me
dium. Vallcv wools hnve been very
disappointing in condition, no doubt
caused by our hord winter. However,
that has nothing to do with the care
lessness of putting up the wool. Most
of the coarse wool comes iu with
dung tags weighing a pound or more
to the fleece. This is deplorable and
causes dealers a heavy loss, as all tags
must be removed before baling or the
wool will be rejected in Bosto or a
heavy reduction made. Also a great
deal of the coarse wool comes in wet
and often is packed, in this condition,
causing heat and rot. These things
work eventually agaiur.t the farmer in
price. Every farmer should carefully
handle and look over every fleece be
fore sacking. In this way only can we
get to an honest standard.
Referring to the report of a buyers'
combination, Mr. Brown said "It is
our aim to give the tr:ie side of every
thing. It never pays to deceive eith
er the seller or th buyer. There is no
such combination so far as I know."

business upheavals Round to come alter
"Appeal for the restoration of the
republican party to power to 'bring a
