Tom McOarey of Los Angel

Deal Probably in July.
NEW YORK, Dec. 2. It was an
nounced today that the managers of
Jeffries nnd Johnson have accepted
tho bid'of E. Ms Rickard, allied with
Jack Glcnson, for staging the world's
championship fight. The proposition
accepted was the first offered by
Rickard, namely:
A guaranteed pur of $101,000
nnd two-thirds cjf the receipts from
moving pictures. I
It is understooc that Promoter Cof
froth is in the deal with Ricknrd and
Glenson nnd that the fight will be
held nt or near San Francisco.
Tho fighters nro figuring n big in
come from the pictures.
Tho only positive decision ns to tho
location of the fight was set forth in
tho bid when it wns stated that the
battle must be held "in California,
evadn or Utah."
Tom McCarev of Los Ancrelcs
claims that the thing wns "framed

ard may hold Ely up as the place for

his business sense will tell him thnt
the uoirical place is whore tho norm-
lation can be found. Ely, which is ns
isolated ns Goldficld, could not get
tho crowd, nnd $101,000 is n lot of
monej.
McCnrey's claim that tho cards

tified at this distance, on tho frfc of

After Working for Months
Preparing Estimates and
Taking Inventory of Prop
erties, Hafer Loses Same.
IS IN KALAMAZOO
WITH DEWING BROS.
Gets Wrong Grip While on
Train and Loses Valuable
Papers May Return.
KALAMAZOO. Mich., Dec. 2. Ed
gar S. Hafer, general manager of
the Crater Lake Lumber company of
Medford, Or., who is stopping at the
Hurdick hotel, mourns the loss of a
suitcase containing valuable reports
and cstimntcs of extensive lumber
tracts on the Pacific const. Mr. IJa
fer arrived in Knlamnzoo from tho
west last Tuesday night nnd lost his
grip ns he left the train nt the Mich
igan Central depot. ,
Mr. Hafer had an appointment in
Kalamazoo with C. A. Dewing nnd
Edward Woodbury to confer 'with
them on matters of mutual interest
concerning lumber property on the
const no occupied a seat in the
1h
air car nnd when tho train arrived
nt the station the porter carried two
grips, presumably Mr. Hnfer's, to the
platform.
As the train was pulling ont Mr.
Ilnfcr discovered that one of his
grips wns missing nnd that ho had
been given another party's crip bv
mistake. Ho gave the unknown's
grip to one of the porters, instruct
ing him to endenvor to locnte his own
grip nnd forward it to Kalamazoo.
Investigation by the Michigan Cen
tral authorities developed that the
grip Mr. Unfer bad given the porter
was the property of n W. E. Critten
den of Clatonin, Neb. So far Mr.
Crittenden has not been located,
neither has Mr. Hnfer's enso been
returned 'to him.
Tho papers and reports in tho
missing case involve several weeks of
hnrd lnbor in their preparation, nnd
while of great value to tho repre
sentative of the lumber company, are
worthless to others. Unless the pn-
pers are returned immediately, Mr.
Hafer will have to go back to Ore
gon nnd begin the work nil over
ngnin.
Mr. Hafer is under the impression
that tho party who secured his grip
is holding it for the sake of a reward
being offered.
For tho pnst three months Mr. Iln
fcr has been hnrd nt work in this
city preparing n completo inventory
nnd ostimnto of the entire holdings of
tho Crator Lake Lumber company. It
is tnese papers which ho lost.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2. Tho
friends of tho policy of conservation
of nntural resources realize today that
their fight In tho congress which con
venes Monday will bo centered in tho

that tho conservation measured are
apt to slumber in tho committeo plg

Speakor Cannon and Representa
tive Mondoll of Wyoming, who Is
chairman of tho lands committeo, nro
snld to havo an understanding. Mon
doll owns a great amount of Innd in
Wyoming.
It will bo assortod that Secretary

servation legislation nro for tho most
part unconstitutional, A member
who is linod up with Cannon and
Mondoll In tho tight today said:
"To say that a sovorelgn state can
not control tlio waters within Its bor

Admit Its Seriousness.

tic Efforts Are Being Made
to Replace the Strikers.
ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 2. Strike
breakers brought from Milwaukee and
Chicago arrived here today to replace
the striking members of tho National
Switchmen's union..
Although many of the places vacat
ed by the strikers were filled with
the imported men. there was little im
provement in the local situation, nnd
traffic on all hues between this city
and the Pacific coast is in a chaotic
condition. Additional strikebreakers
are expected to arrive from Chicago
tonignr, and tomorrow tho first con
certed attempt of the roads centering
here to relieve the tienp probably
will be made.
Five thousand flour mills ouera-
tives are idle here and in Minneap
olis today. All tho great mills in
the Twin Cities have closed down.
BUTTE. Mont.. Dec. 2. The im
mense Boston and Montana mines of
tho Amalgamated Conner comnanv
closed down today as a result of the
strike of tho switchmen, which has
paralyzed traffic and trade through
out this section. Three thousand
men nro thrown out of employment
because of the action of the mine of
ficials.
The inability to secure transpor
tation of oro- to the smelters nt Great
Falls was given ns the immediate
cause of the closincr of tho mines.
Because of the resulting shortngo of
ore, the Great Falls smelters wero
compelled also to close and there nro
1500 operatives idlo today. Freight
traffic on tho lines of the Northern
Pacific and Great Northern railroads
throughout Moutana is completely
