The question of whether JesR Wilk;

whom probably will be decided LaR-.
bor day at Canton, O.
On that day Carl Morris and Fred
Fulton, the biggest and perhaps the
best of the heavyweights. Willard excepted,
will mix in a 15:round decisEr,
'- . ion match.
Whether the winner will have a
chance at Willard is still a question,
but Matt Hinkle, who is promoting
the bout believes Willard will consent
to a match as soon as he can get in
shape aftor his circus season.
Br ' Hinkle says lie has been unable tn
get any definite statement out 01' Wi!
Hj |ard, but he has done more than any
other promoter in getting Willard to
commit himself.
"When 1 get ready to box, I will
see you Matt," Willard told Hinkle

with a match, but If ho did Hinkle

Engineer Meuaser, of the same company,

up several plans for the-new bridge,
but before he can contiuue further it
was necessary to rend Mr. Harder to
Fairmont to decide definitely on cer- (

are trying to make the east
side approach as near the Monongahela ,
railroad station as possible. ,
Mr. Harder states that the company
is doing all it can on tho bridge plans
and will have them completed and
ready to submit to the Board of Affairs
before many days.

The 100 .per cent car supply that has 3
been promised by the Baltimore and

who will ship coal to the Great

regulation has been made to induce ;

road is tho only company that has

Beginning August 1, there remains s
but sixteen weeks in which seven "
