AGAIN FORCED TO POSTPONE BOXINC CARD FOR GARDEN Seattle Lightweight Taken 111 With Fever and Can not Appear Until Next Saturday Night. Promoter Nick Collins has again been forced to postpone his boxing card for the Liberty gardens. Harry Casey, tlie Seattle lightweight, has de veloped a slight touch of fever and will not be in shape to meet Morrisey until Saturday night. The boxing card was to have gone on tonight Origi nally it was scheduled for Monday night. The weather man interfered and the first postponement was taken to Wednesday evening. Just what brought on the sudden at tack to Casey is difficult to deter mine. He was carefully examined by a local physician who thought it un wise for him to attempt to go on to night. Casey feels about as bad over the postponement as Promoter Collins and that means they are keenly disap pointed. The several preliminary events to the main bout will stand as previously announced. All of the local boys are getting into good condition and de veloping a keen desire to get through the ropes. Morrisey says he was never in better shape for a battle but wants his opponent to enter the ring in per fect physical condition so that the main go will be fast from start to finish. Casey said today that he was feeling much better than he had been during the past two days and that ho had no doubt but that by Saturday he would be in the best possible condition to box. "Just what was the trouble with me, I do not know," said Casey, "but I sure felt badly yesterday and hur ried to a doctor. After looking me over he said that it would not be wise to box tonight but that by Saturday I should be in condition to go the limit easily. Following his advice I have asked Promoter Collins to post pone the bout until the latter date and he has very kindly consented to do so. I want to give the fans the best l have and know 1 will be able to do so Saturday night." BOISE FURNISHING ITS FULL SHARE OF RECRUITS FOR NAVY The Salt Lake recruiting district for the United States navy is allotted 20 men each week. I.nst week the total enltetments for the district were six and of these the Boise office furnished two. Three other men were sent in j from the local station by Chief Eiec I trlclan A. W. MacKenzie. but us the officer in charge of the district was not there to receive them, they will i be credited on this week's allotment. The Boise station has a. credit of three I men from last week and two others have already been recruited, making 1 five s^ far for this week. ! The enlistments for the district lut I week were exceptionally small. Butte , and Boise each sent In two men, while Salt Lake got only one man. Chief MacKenzie has been notified 1 that the navy now has aJl the musi cians It can use and no more enlist ments for this service will be made until further notice. I Until recently the. Boise station was limited to one man each week, but this restriction was removed some time ago. as the officers in charge of th* district found that it was impossible to rely upon all of the stations to fur nish fixed quotas. The Boise station hag never failed in supplying Its al lotment and has always had several eliglbles on the list. I Satyrs are mentioned In Isaiah xlii, 21 and xxxiv. 14. where the prophet predicts the desolation of Babylon. In the passages cited It probably refers to demons of woods and desert places, half men and half goats (see Lev. xvll, <:2 Chronicles xi, 15). !

Governor Alexander has recalled Joseph Hanson, state secretary of war, from northern Idaho to Boise to take immediate charge of the coal situa tion. At the request of Frank R.

Secretary Hanson wired the governor there are no indications that there will be further trouble in the north al though he thinks that It would be well to allow the troops to remain there for a short time. The troops stationed at Burke have been moved to Mace. His mission living been fulfilled In the panhandle. Secretary Hanson says that he can now come south. Gover nor Alexander wired him to do so. Some time ago former Governor Gooding requested that the war sécré ta ry be placed on the job at Salt Lake supervising the coal situation. Gov ernor Alexander said that there were no funds to pay the war secretary's salary and unless some citizen guaran teed to advance the money and take deficiency warrants in return he could not go to Salt Lake. Mr. Gooding promptly replied that he would ad vance the funds feeling sure that the next legislature will pay off the defi ciency warrants. While he has been In the north the secretary of war has been on the pay roll of the adjutant general's depart ment which has funds to meet his sal ary and expenses.
