TOLEDO, O., June 30. What brand of weather will Toledo enjoy or perhaps disapprove on July 4 when Jess Willard and Jack Dempsey meet iti the Bay View Park arena in their twelve-round contest for the world’s heavyweight championship?
Boxing fans have been debating the question for a month -ever since the date for the contest was set for Independence Day.
It ha? been the problem of the day. practically every day, for weeks. It has been discussed on the streets, in the camps of the heavyweight rivals, in offices, factories, and by young and old. So interested has everybody become in the question that W. S. Currier, meteorologist for the government weather bureau, decided to dust off a few records and to search back through the years to acquaint himself with
the brand of weather Toledo is accustomed to experience on the Fourth of July.
Currier found that from ISH until 1910, inclusive, it rained on 21 Independence days. He then
reached the conclusion that it is dite to rain every other Fourth of July. From 1909 to 1918. inclusive. Mr. Currier found tha*t ll rained but twice on July 4. It failed to rain last year on ”fire-crackerM day. But Mr. Currier is making no prediction in regard to what weather to expect this fourth of July.
The average mean temperature for the last ten years on Fourth of July has been 7 2 degrees.
Tex Rickard, promoter of the Wil-lard-Dempsey contest, said that the match would be staged whether there is a clear sky or a driving rain. There will be no postponement until July 5, he said. There is a possibility of a delay of one or two hours in starting the contest. if rain should interfere, but the match will be decided on the day scheduled.
“I am taking this stand, out of respect to the public,” Rickard said “It would be an injustice and work hardships on thousands of people if they were obliged to remain over for another day. The majority of the visitors coming to Toledo will have arranged to leave within a few hours after the contest. To ask them to remain over night and face inadequate hotel accommodations would not be the right thing. The match will be staged as scheduled, rain or shine.” __

BERUN. June 30. Dr. Theobald von Bethmann-Hollweg. former German chancellor, has the allied and associated powers to place him on trial instead of the former emperor.
The former chancellor says that he assumes responsibility for the acts of Germany during his period of office and places himself at the disposal of the allies.
The request of the former chancellor was made on June 2 5 in a communication to Premier Clemen-ceau, president of the conference. Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg, it is said, desired to take this step on May 20, hut refrained at that time on the expressed wish of the German government.

American and French merchants and manufacturers get on the job. is tho belief here in Basel.

ST. LOUIS, June 30.—Fifteen thousand reservations have been made at hotels and cafes for the big celebration here tonight. All liquor disposables have abuttal! t supplies ready tor the revelry. Saloon men say it will be their great *• st. ihough saddest, day.
The police announced sale of li-quor must stop at midnight. But th s will not prevent revelers from ordering substantial supplies shortly before midnight, and the festivities are expected to outdo any New Year’s celebration in the city’s history.
Although many private warehouses’ and cellars have been well stored, liquor dealers declare approximately 600,000 gallons of vrhis-ky will be left on their hands by refusal of railroads to transport alcoholic beverages after July I.

Thirteen of the fifteen breweries here announced they would continue manufacturing beer containing 2.7 5 per cent alcohol until January I. when the national prohibition •amendment becomes effective. They have filed proceedings in .federal court asking that the internal revenue be enjoined from interfering with production of beer.

COBLENZ, Germany, June 30.— The rules and regulations issued by the army of occupation authorities after entering Germany last December will remain effective indefinitely, according to an announcement at the Third Army headquarters. Lieutenant General Hunter Liggett sent w*ord to all German officials to caution German civilians that none of the army regulations have been cancelled as yet.
This news is taken to mean that the strict rules of the Army of Occupation will be continued until at least part of the demands of the peace treaty have been carried out. The announcement was given out, lest the German civilian population take too much liberties among the allied soldiers.

Then one night it rained—gutters and alleys lost their value as sleeping quarters, and a wild scramble was made for shelter. Many made their way to the depot. Then it was that this financial genius got his big idea. He beat the others to the station, procured a club and took his stand at the door.
It was raining hard and he was a big man, and his club w*as big or he probably would not have been able to collect fifteen cents each from them for the privilege of sleep ing on the floor. At any rate he got the money, and left early next morning for parts unknown, via the side-door Pullman route.
