GRAND JURY WANTS NEW FIGHT LAWS Legislature Will Be Asked' to Define What Is Meant by Word "Prizefight" OAKLAND, Dec. 13. — The grand Jury of Alameda county will ask the legis lature to define what is meant by .a prizefight, so that the prohibitory stat ute may be enforced. The difficulty is to draw the line between prizefights and sparring exhibitions. An examination of decisions regard ing prizefights in many-states, which was made by District Attorney Donahue at the time he prevented the Jeffries- Johnson fight at Emeryville, showed that It was not so easy to regulate the minor fights that are controlled by clubs. The grand jury recently made an in vestigation of prizefighting in Alameda county, listening to Mayor Mott and Superintendent of Police Wilson of Oakland, who described the system now practiced of permitting incor porated clubs to conduct limited round boxing exhibitions. The grand jury will meet tomorrow and take up the charges made against County Assessor Henry P. Dalton by Leslie Blackburn and Frank Shay.

To the Public: I wish to certify that I have been cured by Dr. T. Foo Yuen of chronic stomach trouble, so that others suffering from the same cause may be enlightened and go to him for treatment. About five years ago, while living in San Francisco, I began to have attacks of indigestion, which gradually in- creased until I had to call in a physi- cian, and while there I was treated by two American physicians of good re- pute, but obtained no relief, the at- tacks becoming more frequent and more severe; the pain in my stomach at that time became almost unbearable. Since moving to Oakland I have treated with six well known physicians who exhausted their skill with no good results. I suffered such intense pain that I cried in agony and wished to die. The doctors said nothing could be done for me except to give me morphine to ease the pain. But my friends would not' have it so. Last September they hurried me to see Dr. Foo, who had a short time before located at 1912 Broadway, Oakland. After he had ex- amined my pulse he said I had serious stomach trouble. I began to take his herbal treatment at once, and after taking it for two months I noticed a decided improvement, seldom having any pain, and felt hopeful and encour- aged. After the expiration of six months Dr. Foo .discharged me as cured. > Five months have passed since then and I have felt no return of the trouble, so I feel the cure will be permanent. My weight taken in health was 165 pounds, which had been reduced to 114 pounds when I went to consult Dr. Foo. I now weigh 145, and think in' a short time I will be up to my normal condi- tion in every respect. I found Dr. Foo a kind and courteous gentleman, arid would advise thoge who are suffering to avail themselves of his wonderful skill, which far surpasses that of any physician that I have ever employed. i I believe I awe my life to Dr. Foo Yuen, and my gratitude is unbounded.

CONSOLIDATION OF GOVERNMENT URGED Committee Appointed to Dis cuss Combination of City and County Affairs OAKLAND, Dec. 13.— 1n compliance with a request from the legislation committee of the chamber of com merce, Mayor Frank K. Mott today ap pointed a committee of representative men from Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, HaywarJ, Niles, San Leandro, Liver more and Centerville to take up the matter of a consolidated city and county government. Adna A. Denison, secretary of. the chamber of commerce, as temporary chairman, will call a meeting, but the date has not been decided upon. The men appointed are: Oakland— A. Jonas, A. A. Denison, W. S. Mackay; Wilber Walker. F. A. Leach Jr., W. E. Gibson, E. H. Marwedel. Alameda— J. H. Wilkins, W. W. Hammond, A. F. St. Sure. Berkeley— Francis Ferrler, Dr. H. O. Brink, C. O.

In discussing the movement today, Denison saiJ: Some legislation to facilitate the consolidation or federation of cities or the formation of city and county governments will be considered by the legislature. It is desirable for the cities on the east side of the bay whose financial, industrial and civic interests are becoming more identified every day. There is no inclination to preci pitate any general scheme of con solidation, and certainly nothing will be urged without the consent of all the communities involved. As I understand the purpose of this committee it is merely to ar range for a friendly conference to bring aljout unity of action.
