New York, March 13. i'ete Herman,
who defeated Kid Williams and fame
into ft doubtful bantamweight cham
pionship a short time ago, will make
his appearance iu New York tonight
when he faces Dutch Brandt, a local
Pete is here to vindicate himself. He
want to prove to New York, where
they have come to be Missourians when
fights are considered, that Johnny
Krtle isn 't a champion at all, foul iu ,
Wisconsin or not foul.
Krtle lias Referee Roche's decision
to back up his claim to the crown,
while the official who stopped a bout
between Williams and Ertle never did
make a decision.
Herman is a tiny fighting machine,
built like a heavyweight champion.
His bands are bin? and his shoulders lire
round ami smooth- He is pleasant iu
conversation. Just like all champions,
he is a vouth who trains every minute
he is in a gymnasium.
If he should lose his recently ac
quired crown tonight he will at least
leave behind him the memory of a
champion who didn't ask that a sec

benefit before he fought and he would

Germany Objects to Amer
icans Being In Charge of
Belgian Relief
New York, Xarrh 13. Germany has
protested, unofficially, against admin
istration by Americana of Belgian re
lief work, in the occupied portion of
northern France, This fact was reveal
ed today when Herbert C. Hoover, di
rector general of the relief work sail
ed suddenly for Spain.
Hoover sailed for Cadiz, Spain, to
day on the steamship Antonio Lopez.
At the offices of the commission it
was endained that German authorities
had initmated they would rather have
the relief work in northern France ad
ministered by citizens of some neutral
nation, in view of the international re
lations of the I'nited States and Ger
many. Hoover will arrange for Hollanders
to take over the work in this section.
He dropied the great new campaign
for funds recently launched iu this
country and made hurried arrangements
for the trip abroad.
Before leaving Hoover refused
comment on the situation brought
bout by the torpedoing of the Belgian
relief ship Storstad.

Stock Market Is Dull
Prices Slightly Lower
New York, Mur. 13. The New York
Evening Sun financial review today
For some tinio past, the distinguishing
characteristic of the securities market
has been its steady resistance to pres
sure. This characteristic has at no
tiiuo been better illustrated than in to
day's trading. Overnight developments
were distinctly bearish.
Tho situation with regard to the rail
road labor, is, to say the least, confus
ing, although it does not appear that
the trainmen are bent on strike in any
event, assuming tho railroad managers
do not yield.
It is to their credit that they have
sent a communication to the president
stating that their services will be avail
able in cose of war no matter what hap
pens. Tho impression of Germany's con
dition brought home by the suit of ex
Anibassndor Gerard tends to turn Wall
street thoughts once more to the pos
sibility of peace, and this must be tak
en ns a bear influence.
Despite this rather formidable line
up of adverse factors, prices of stocks;
in general did not recede more than a j
point or so esccpt in tho case of some!
of the specialties. By mid day practi
cally all early losses were regained. I
The railroad list was inclined to be j
soft and neglected. As the afternoon
advanced prices moved forward frae-j

East Again Buying
Potatoes In Oregon
Portland, Or., March 13 There has
been a resumption of buying in the po
tato market, not only by coast inter
ests, but by eastern speculators, al
though but "little change is indicated in
It developed during the day that
some of the big California speculators
who had been heavy purchaserds in
this district this season, had not been
storing their stock as generally believ
ed, but were selling right along. This
interest is again in the market.
While extreme weakness is indicated
in the potato trade all through the
eastern states, some of this weakness
is said to be merely for the purpose of
forcing down values here.
While there has been more general
offering of potatoes by northwest grow
ers recently, since the price became
weak and depressed, still the offerings
are -morally of small lots nnd the to
tal holdings are comparatively small.
Along Front street there is a small
increase in sales of potatoes, but pric
es are unchanged.
Portland, Or., March 13. Yester
lay's hog market made the most sen
sational jump in prices ever made here.
There was but a light supply here
about 1500 head which was bought
up rt sellers' prices. The demand was
several times larger than the supply
and first bids were on a 50 cents high
er oasis. Atter a short while bids were
aain lifted and several loads were dis
posed of at $14(5)14.10. Prices for the
day were from 50 to 75 cents higher
than last week 's close. Three loads of
prime hogs sold at $14.35 to outside
raakers, with several other bunches at
$14-25. All other sales were made at
$14 and $14.10. Pigs were advanced 75
cents, with best stuff being taken at
$13 and the bulk xf the sales at $12.75

Cattle Are Weaker
After last week 's large run of cat
tle, which totaled over 2200 head, and
the market closing with an easy tone,
yesterday's run of cattle totaled over
1400 head. There was a good demand
from small coast butchers, who took
their supplies early on a steady basis
with a week ago. Large killers who are
all well supplied with present needs
were rather bearish and the bulk of
the day's beef was disposed of at 10
to 20 cents lower than at last week 's
opening. The feature of the day's trade
was the sale of a few heavy steers
owned bv F. C Oxmaii of Durkee, Ore
gon, at $10.00.
There were 10 loads" of prime steers
irom Montana which were weighed to
local killers. The receipts of cattle are
much heavier than was expected and
the present decline in cattle values is
believed to be onlv temporary.
Sheep Prices Hold Up
Sheen supplies yesterday were light
and prices on a steady basis. Demand
was fairly good, although packers are
not killing very much on account of
the light demand from retailers. One
load of good wool ewes brought $9.75
with a load of shorn wethers at $10.00.
There have been no lambs on the mar
ket for over a week, but prime wool
lambs are quoted from $12.90 to $13.10
Wool Situation Tight
E. W. Rumble, manager of the Co
lumbia Basin Wool Warehouse Co. in
reviewing the wool markets and the
outlook for the year says:
"The wool situation is certainly get
ting to be a tight one. Wool markets
in manufacturing centers keep mod
erately active, and prices have been
mounting rapidly. Back of this is the
fact that London sales are finishing
at the highest point, with greasy Me
rinos selling three to six ecnts, and
cross-breds four to six cents above
"Boston has now reached an asking
price at east of about $1.40 clean basis
ior good staple fine wools, $1.30 for
French, $1.25 nossibly for half bloods,
' and $1.10 for three-eights, (quarters
have not been taken hold of so well
lately, but undoubtedly they will im
prove shortly.
"Dealers throughout the northwest
I are taking contracts for wool on the
I sheep's back, when the growers are
, willing to sell, at prices ranging from
. 33c to 35c for fine wools and 40c to 45c
i for medium and cross-bred wools.
Theso prices, at the moment, would
! not appear out of line with asking
1 clean prices, Boston. The fact remains,
however, that ti.e entire market at the
present is purely speculative. Grades
and qualities jteem to ue a remote con
sideration, as it is an evident fact that
both dealers and producers are content
ing themselves with the thought that
'wool is wool,' and that the real mer
its of the trade will not be known un
til the wools are prepared and ready
for market."

man submarines were captured and de

here today, the first authoritative word
of the entente success in coping with
the undersea boats.
At this rate an average of one and
one-half submarines a day the suecess

run is doubtful, it is believed here. No
information is available here as to the

Experts think, however, that if the

soon feel the strain upon this weapon,
and that ultimately she will be forced
to give up its use.

Silverton, Or., March 13. Silverton
$500,000 sawmill began operations here
yesterday. About one year ago prepa

The Silver Falls Timber company is
the owner of the mill located on a site
of 143 aires adjacent to the city on

timber in the Abiqua basin which will
last for a period of 30 or 40 years,
while running ihe new, mill to capacity.
The company operates 35 miles of
logging railroad and will build two ad

tract covers 30,000 acres, most of
which is fir. Two locomotives and 120
logging cars will be used to supply the
