Lovers of the mat game will have a chance to see a fast and exciting contest next Saturday night at the opera house when Johnnie Wallace, the 135-pound champion of the Idaho deaf school, who is now home on his vacation, and Walter Harvard, weight 135 pounds, champion of the Nezperce Indians, will meet in a catch-as-catch-can match, best two in three. Both these young men have had considerable experience at the game and as both have ambitions to climb up higher, they both want to win and that is what will make it a contest worth seeing. The bout will be under the auspices of the Nezperce fire department. Ladies will be admitted free. Admission 35 and 50 cents. Ringside seats 75c. Main bout at 8:30.
