New York, Aug. 22. Two recruit

came through a contest against the
great Alexander yesterday with a vic
tory In tne first name of a double
header and the other, Billy Kvaas, set I
tne rhiiiies down wita another defeat
in the secoud clontcst.
iliilndelphia got to Jacobs for sev

inates were pounding Alexander at op
portune moments, and thanks to a
double with the bases filled, he had lit

Colorado Springs, Colo., Aug. 22.
Keenly realizing that his title of light
weight champion will be in danger,
Freddie Welsh is putting in some great
licks at training in preparation for his
20-round Labor day battle with Charley
Welsh is on tho rond every morning at
7 o'clock with the trainer and makes
between six and eight miles. This is
followed by an hour's work in his train
ing quarters and eight rounds of boxing
with his sparring partners. Welsh box
ed two rounds with Benny Chnve'r. and
three rounds each with Jack Brnddon
and Battling Keddy, displaying all his
cleverness beforo a crowd of 300 enthus
iastic fight fans.
White will not start his boxing un
til Wednesday, as he does not believe
more than 10 days hard training will
be necessary to put him in hape. Thus
far he has confined his training mostly
to road work to develop his wind.
Charley claims to be in fine condition
Welsh and White met again last night
at the Ilayes-Jucksnu bout nt Ksmona.
The men were introduced to the crowd
and received a great hand.
Welsh continues a slight favorite in
the local betting. But the wager that
attracts most attention is the three to
one that White won't score a knockout.

Operators iu stocks who had looked

that the impression on .prices was small
in proportion to the number of shares.

well riveted upon United States steel

Is Prisoner James Gaffene
As He Claims, Or Is He
Murderer Tortorici?
San Francisco, Aug. 22. A dark
skinned man paced slowly before the
witness stand in the superior court
room today that witnesses might have
the chance of studying his every pose.
He started each walk confidently
and ended it with shoulders dropping
and walk unsteady.
This man declares he is James Gaf
fene. an innocent man. But five ac
cusing hands pointed him out as I'ietro
Tortorici, the man who murdered Bing
gio Vilardo and then hacked the body
into pieces, hiding it in a sack. Only
once did hope come to the accused man.
ft was when Policeman James Deuser
took the stand.
"That man looks just like Tortorici
did 11 years ago," said the officer.
"Had 1 met him 11 years ago there
would be no doubt in my mind."
The case is one of the most remark
able in local criminal history..
The one defense is that there has
been a case of mistaken identity and
that somewhere there is a double, the
reol Tortorici. George Schmneke, a
laundry worker; Felipe Ferita and Mrs.
Ienn Orbent, nil former friends of
Tortorici, declared from the stand that
the man before them was the slayer.

Karly relief is promised in the car
shortage situation by a letter received
from General Manager Scott of the
Southern Pacifjc company nt the office
of tho public service commission this
in explaining the present shortage,
the general manager says that inabili
ty to get cars unloaded on the Atlantic
const through lack of stiippiug has tied
up about 5000 of the company's cars.
He states that early in tiie year the
company placed an order for 3000 new
cars, which owing to a shortage of la
tor and large war orders have not been
delivered, although the company had
the promise of early delivery. The
first shipment of these new box cars,
however, will be coming forward in a
few days, the company reversing its
usual custom and billing them through
empty and paying freight on them in
an effort to satisfy the demands of
the Pacific coast. The letter follows:
"We appreciate fully the seriousness
of the car situation, not only in Ore
gon but everywhere on the Pacific
coast. We have been sending empty
equipment regularly to Oregon to meet
the requirements there, iu addition to

to show we are not discriminating a

' ' You ask what may be expected in

the situation will improve. We had
reason to believe we would not be con
fronted with a shortage this year, be
cnuse early in the year we placed an
order for 3000 cars and had the prom
