A* the Lowell road race, where Strang drove an

passing some of the slower cars. In trying to pass

his isecLsnic to fire everything he had loose at the

fcsiilade tbe mechanic unstrapped two IS-incn
monkey wrenches from the floor of tl-.e Isotta, and.
Btsassssai up hurled both of them at the car. For
tunately for the drivers of the car ahead, both

went far from the mark, and st the next turn
Strans succeeded in passing by driving off to the

In the Long Island Motor Parkway Sweepstakes
provision will be made for any such obstinacy on
th* part of drivers. Each driver will be made to
understand that when 6O many cars start at once
consideration must always be allowed to the man
wno hi coining behind on the theory that he may
have ■ faster car and be capable of passing. Any
driver who persistently refuses to allow passing
will be fined or disqualified at the close of th«

C. M. Daniels, of the New York Athletic Club,
easily -won the one-mile Amateur -Athletic Union
championship swim, held under the auspices of
the American Lifesavinsr Society at Sheepshead
Bay yesterday afternoon. The committee expected
to have at lee.st a. dozen entries, and was disap
pointed when only three men faced the starter.
A strong- current was running, and Daniels made
no ■ attempt to establish a new record. He took
the lead at the Etart. and when a furlong had
been covered -was fifty yards ahead of K. Manley.
a clubmate. At the half-mile Daniels was using
his trudeeon and overhead stroke consistently and
always drew away, being over a hundred and fifty
yards in the lead at this stage of the race. He
then eased up a little, allowing the other com
petitors to creep up on him, but In the last 220
yards he treated the spectators to his fast crawl
stroke and won by over a hundred and fifty yards.
Manley finished second, a good distance ahead of
F. H. James, of the Bath Beach Swimming- Asso
ciation, trho was third.
"Budd" Goodwin, the- mile metropolitan cham
pion, -was a spectator, not caring 1 to swim against

Brooklyn Beats CritcUer Team and
Champions Play to a Tie.
Before a good sized crowd of association foot
ball lovers at Marquette Oval, In Brooklyn, yester
day, the eleven of the Brooklyn Football Club de
feated the Critchleys/ of Brooklyn, by the score of
1 goal to 0, repeating the performance of the week
before,- when ; the champion Camerons suffered de
feat by the same ..totals. .Neither, side was able to
score In the first naif of yesterday's game, the ball
being for the most' part In possession of the Brook
lyn Football Club's forwards. The defensive work
of the- Critehleys. however,' was aj>iojq}nent feature
of the play. ; ''■*. ; $'3
In the second half the state of affairs was re
versed and the Critchleys did much of the pressing
and the Brooklyn defence was called upon for
heroic work. It proved equal to the occasion and
many a good shot for the net was intercepted by
th© Brooklyn backs and goalkeeper. About ten min
utes before the call of time V. Turnbu!l. inside left
for the Brooklyns. succeeded In shooting the only
goal of the game.
At Visitation Oval. in Brooklyn, the Camerons,
champions of the New York Amateur Association
Football League, again had their work cut out for
them In the game with the eleven of the Arcadia
Thistles, the score at the end being one goal all.
after the Thistles had led by 1 to 0 in the first half.
Though the weather was somewhat too sultry for
the most enjoyable football, the play was very fast
and both sides were seen to advantage. W. Russell,
outside left for the home team, scored the goal for
the Thistles by means of a brilliant shot In the
opening period about twenty minutes after the
start. From then on the Camerons assumed the
offensive and a fine exhibition of play was fur
nished by the Thistles' custodian, W. Haughie. The
latter made numerous fine saves and cleared with
splendid precision. In trie middle of the. second
half G. Bissett, outside left for the Camerona, tied
the score, and then honors remained even.

The withdrawal of the Squaw gave the Careless

THE success of the Cleveland has been absolute. At the commencement of 1908 we predicted that the
Cleveland would be the sensation of the year.
"How good the car was made" is best shown by the fact that for 1909 the few changes will be in
the nature of refinements only. Specifications will duplicate our 1908 model.
THE WHY— The Cleveland offers more for $3500 than any other car either foreign or American
sellingfor $4200 or more, BAR NONE, and the reason is logic*!. By our new selling plan, we eliminate the
dealer's profit of approximately 20%. No car selling at less than $4200 can afford to use the materials that
are put into the Cleveland, 'it is only a matter of common sense that when a dealer makes 20% to *j%
profit, you and not the manufacturer pay the bill.
Compare these specifications point by point with any car selling for more than M.200.
You cannot compare them with any car selling for less.
Motor— sxs, 4045 H.P.
Ignition— Bosch magneto and
storage battery .
Transmission— Selective four
speeds forward, one reverse,
direct on 3rd.
Front Axle— Heavy I beam drop
Rear Axle— Floating type espe
cially reinforced. Extra heavy.
THE REAL PROOF — The Automobile Club of America made an official test with ten of America's
leading cars, selling up to $5000. THE CLEVELAND HEADED THIS LIST. This report showed
that the Cleveland developed more horse power at the rear wheels (the only place that really counts) than any
other car. THIS REPORT WILL BE SENT UPON REQUEST.
Not one structural weakness developed in a single one of the 1908 Clevelands. Our demonstrating
car has been driven 41,200 miles. This is further than the average touring car is driven in three seasons.
The car is today in perfect condition. WE INVITE A DEMONSTRATION IN THIS PARTICULAR
You want an unprejudiced judgment — Ask any Cleveland owner to show you his repair bills for this
season. We will stake our reputation on his say so. Do you want a list of Cleveland owners ?
When you buy a Cleveland for $3500 you save at least $700 to $1000. For 1909 the price will remain
the same. We are ready to talk on 1909 models which will comprise TOURING CARS, LIMOUSINES,
LANDAULETS, RUNABOUTS and the popular TOY TONXEAUS.
Let us arrange fora demonstration in the car that has been driven 41,200 miles. Then you will know
the condition of your Cleveland in 1912.

The unexpected happened when Fred Belters, of
the New York Athletic Club, the national three

the three-mile handicap run. which was the feature
event of the meet. G. Obermeyer. of the National
Athletic Club, had an allowance of 190 yards, de

many weeks, and had an easy time ;n winning.
He used his exceedingly long strkle well, and did
not have to exert himself to win by over 75 yards
from J. Gilbert, a seventeen-year-old member of
the Mohawk Athletir Club, who had a handicap of
280 yards. Many of the crack three-milers were
entered, and they seemed to be too severely handi
capped, and could hardly do themselves Justice.
Bellars, Bonhag, KefHy, Bailey ami C"arr were
all bunched together at the secon<l mile, LjO yards
back of Gilbert, who took the lead after running
two laps. At the two and one-half-Tiile post Bon
hag could no longer keep up the swift pace and
quit. The cracks were still all bunched together,
and seemed unable to cut down Obermeycr's and
Gilbert's lead In the last lap Obenneyer took
the lead from Gilbert and won easily. J. F. Relliy.
the csack 'cross-country mate of Gilbert, chal
lenged the youngster at the stretch for home, but
Gilbert surprised tha spectators by his reserve
strength, takin? second place by a yard. Bellars
finished fifth, badly beaten.
J. J. Kllar, the Metropolitan champion hurdler, of
the Irish-American Athletic Club, easily won his
heat and the final In the 220-yard low and the 120
yard high hurdles racea. starting from scratch in
