Siting the country generally In its

B-iJ ** one or more delegates represent
7&* Metropolitan Golf Association, but
Le 4>leg*teg probably would have been
Bund by the executive committee of

M tttend in a p*r?unotory manner as

country In the national association,
1 aftet would be to so decrease their
pat that the association would soon

ifcding this to be the opinion of these
•ifreJffrom the West, we had a meet
tll which there was a gathering of
a*ect delegates from the East and
itMßtiie South, and there was not a
fk inau in this email body of rep
.fsative iner. who felt that club rep-
Bjation should be abolished. In fact
rwfre unanimous that the proper form
' rrrersnifiit is by club representation,
Ilka! the only problem was how best
ißoeese'tbe interest of clubs all over
• etontrr, and thus enlarge the member
iij oJ the association.
Be aext .question which we considered
■ Ike deslrabi'.:Ty of having only one
a* of membership and abolishing the
Sei «Ibm. After a thorough considera
te the question it was the unanimous
bob of these geri!icm«n that it was
itattjr important to retain the so-called
■I class or allied class in order to
ate it possible for very small polf clubs
zt ether cryanizations to join with very
i* dues If they reefer, as very many
akt ail over the country do prefer. In
■ar words, there are innumerable clubs
hicb have a small revenue and a small

th* annual meeting that the delegates
Mttswnbled were of the same opinion.

aas to the qualifications for active mem

t »aj suggested that my proposed con
3TJon be changed so as to permit clubs
~- sine-hole courses to come in for
a Hwnbership, and we all agreed that
a *ocld be advisable, on the ground
! there is Bathing scientific in limiting
Si membership to clubs with eighteen
courees, because there are many nine
*« courses which are better kept and
£T superior to some eighteen-hole
■S. At any rate, our thought was
■Bthe doors wide and allow any regru
cXeX organized nine-hole golf club to

EGAN SETS A MARK
BUMS IX FAST TIME.
Accident Mars First Heat of
A new American indoor record was es
tablished at the annual games of the 71st
Regiment in the armory in 34th street last
night, when R. J. Kgan, of Company B.
covered $80 yards from scratch In 1 minute
67 seconds. The best previous time for the
distance was l minute 58 4-5 seconds, made
by Melvin Bhepard at the 22d Regiment
three years ago.
Egan set the new mark on. a ten-lap
track, and Incidentally shattered the old
record for the 71st Regiment Armory by
more than thirteen seconds. This race at
tracted a dozen-odd starters, Egan being
asked to concede allowances all the way
up to fifty yards. At the crack of the gun
Egan was away like a flash, and at once
kot into his stride. After travelling an
eighth of a mile the former Pastime man
had moved up among the short-markers,
and another lap Raw him range alongside
of R. Buist, of Company K. and F. Wright,
a Company E man.
The last named made a spurt for about
one hundred yards, but he could not hold
the pace and dropped back. Buist tried to
hold E*ran. but the scratch man was full
of vim and running, and he kept at top
speed to the tape, to win by five, yards.
The winner has been running unattached
for more than a year, and, while he had
won a number of middle-distance races, he
was not thought to be equal to a record
performance. He was strong and com
paratively fresh at the finish.
An accident marred the first heat in the
two-mile Military Athletic League handi
cap bicycle race, when C. Mohrman, of
the 13th Regiment, was thrown against
the wall. The insensible rider was carried
away to the dressing room and a call sent
for a doctor. A little later, however. Mohr
man came round, he having- escaped with
nothing worse than a scalp wound.
The final heat of the race was , won by
"W. V. Vandendries, the 22d Regiment
indoor king, who covered the distance
from scratch in 4:59 2-5. He took the lead
a quarter of a mile from home and won
In the one-mile run J. A. Malone, of
Company X, with an allowance of twenty
yards, won as he pleased. The Mohawk
lad literally ran away from M. T. Gels,
the scratch man.
There were two disqualifications during
the evening. In the final heat of the 220
yard dash A. V. Park«, of Company E,
finished first, but the judges disqualified
him for fouling. This gave first prize to
W. E. Swanson. of Company B. In the
Military Athletic League medley relay race
the 69th Regiment team finished third,
but was disqualified because Tom Collins
was found to be wearing spikes.

B won, with a total of 33. A large crowd

the Sound and made the shooting condi
tions difficult. The usual fixtures ap
poared upon the programme, and these all
furnished interesting competitions. Not
withstanding the wind, the prizes were all
won with high score?.
E. A. Wilson was high gun for the. Jan
uary cup, taking the event with a full
card of 25 targets. He also was the win
ner of a dub trophy shoot. The Haslin
cup went to Dr. Brown, who also had a
full score. The same gunner won the Jis
tance handicap for the Hodgrman cup. .T.
V. A. Cattus also won two prir.es. He
was high gun for the Pc Wolfe trophy, an
event decided at ten pairs of doubles, and
after a shoot-off with five other gunners
he took one of the club trophies.
T. R. Robinson went Into the double
brackets with the other gunn. He took
the Westley Richards cup smd also the
shoot for the Kuchler prize. F. A. Hodg

Elisha Dyer Elected President
at First Meeting.
Wttk Elisha Dyer as president and Har

Thomas' W. Lawson, of Boston, on its
board of governors, the Bulldog Breeders 1
Association (if America was launched yes
terday. More than fifty lovers of the
breed met in thY office of E. Ralph Smith,
Nn. aoo Broadway, and put into operation
th* plans by which it is expected that the
organization will achieve the place of the
model organization of its kind in the world
-certainly of this country. More than one
hundred persons were enrolled as charter
It was formally stated at the outset that
there, was no antagonism with any other
organization. It was to l>e solely for the
benefit of the breed, an election of quali
fied judges by the members, and to make
it impossible for any ring or clique to rule
the association. The latter difficulty was
overcome by a provision that a mall vote
be taken upon all questions, and that every
member must register his vote. Nearly all
of the. speakers voiced the sentiment that
the bulldog was misunderstood— that it was
the gentlest of dogs, never being known to
bite and seldom to bark.
The five objects of the association as set
forth contained two leading features: To
promulgate a standard to secure uniform
ity of type of excellence in breed and for
guidance of bench show judges, and to
hold monthly meetings for competition,
lectures and general education on bulldogs.
The election of officers and board of gov
ernors resulted as follows: President,
Blisha Dyer; first vice-president, J. </ooper
Mott, Great Neck, Long Island; second
vice-president. H. D. Coghlan, Chicago;
third vice-president. F. C Benson, Phila

A committee was appointed to arrange
for the first specialty show, on which no
effort will be spared to make it the- great
est bulldog show ever held in America. It
is purposed to make the thief prizes so
attractive as to induce the bringing over
of some of the cracks of England. It is»
more than probable that one of the leading
judges of England will be invited to judge.

Ade and His "Rolling Peanut 1 '
The dates for the open race meeting of
the new T.os Angeles mile roani track were
announced yesterday. That the manage
ment is assured of a big entry list is evi
dent from the fact that no less than eight
days are named on which conteßts will b«
held. The days s»*t aside for the races are
April 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15. 1« and 17.
"Work on the track was begun last week
Tt will differ from other courses in that it
will bo a perfect circle, one mile in circum
ference and 75 feet wide, with a 25-foot
banking all around. The track will be built
of pine wood. It is thought that a wood
course will not have such a wearing effect
on the tires of the racing rars.
Most of tho leading drivers have already
announced their Intention of driving cars

George Ade, the humorist, is a keen
motorist. He likes to drive hia own car.
His motoring experiences have been tinged
with incidents which abound in humor.
Mr. Ade's favorite machine is a Mitchell
roadster, in which he has driven thou
sands of miles over the Indiana highways.
Eight years ago. when living in Highland
Park, a suburb of Chicago, he purchased
a curved dash Oldsmobile, which his chum,
John T. McCutcheon, the cartoonist, who
is now shooting at lions and tigers In
Africa, christened the "rolling peanut" —
a name which clung to it until its dis
Mr. Ado used his "rolling peanut" to run
from his home over to the Exmoor Coun
try Club, whare he was probably the keen
est, but certainly the worst, golfer. After
a while he found that the. capacity of the
"rolling peanut," even with its auxiliary
back to back seat, was insufficient to ac
commodate these who wanted a "lift" to
the golf club.
So he bought a one-cylinder touring car.
which got its first real test in taking Hub
bard Hill while carrying a load of actors
into the city after a golf game in time
for the opening of one of Mr. Ade's plays
at the Studebaker Theatre. It stopped at
the foot of the hill, and it could not be
coaxed, cajoled, pushed or budged.
Then for the first time Mr. Ade raised,
the hood of the radiator, and there, com
paratively as big as the knee of a gnat, lay
that one cylinder surrounded by enough
space to accommodate a few of the passen
gers. It was the beginning of the end.
The actors took a trolley car, and Mr. Ade
hired a team to haul the one-cylinder car
homeward. After several weeks of In
effectual tinkering with it, a happy thought
struck the humorist: "I will give it to
Brother Bill for a Christmas present."
Brother William was the proudest man in
Indiana when the automobile was received
at Kentland, the home of the Ades. A
month later, after having all the locomotive
and stationary engineer? within calling dis
tance examine the mechanism and shake
their heads, and after he had spent sundry
sums In the advertising- columns of the
Hoosler papers in a vain effort to dispose of
his motoring "old man of the sea." Brother
Bill, soliloquizing one afternoon, said, "Just
to show Brother George that I'm as gen
erous as he is, n return him the car"—
and he did, freight collect.
About this time Mr. Ade's nephew, Harry
Davis, returned from a trip to London, and
Uncle George wanted to make him a pres
ent. Why not the automobile? Of course.
Harry was overjoyed and he had the one
cylinder touring car hauled from the sta
tion to the i 'hiragp agent's store, \*here he
gave a carte blanche order for repairs. The
bill came— over $400— and the automobile
stayed at the repair shop, as Mr. Davis
started for London when he heard the
amount. Eventually the repair man sold it
to a second hand store and Mr. Ade paid
the difference between the price received
and the. repair bill, and every one is happy
except the second hand dealer, who has the

PLEA FOR JUTO LAW
VIEWS OF MR. TERRY.
Advantages of a Uniform
Measure Brought Out.
Charles Thaddeus Terry's plea for uni
formity In automobile legislation before the
convention of the National Civic Federa
tion In Washington last week struck a
popular chord. As chairman of the legis
lative board of the American Automobile
Association, Mr. Terry has devoted perhaps
more study to the question of uniform auto
mobile legislation than any other . Investi
gator in the country. He drew up a few
years ago the uniform state vehicle law.
th» salient provisions of which have been
adopted by several states, and he also
drafted the bill for a national registration
law, which is to be relntrodu. - ln Con- ■
Kress at the present session.
. Mr. Terry, In view of his familiarity with
automobile legislation In the United States.
was Invited by the officers of the National
Civic Federation to explain the necessity
for uniformity In this respect. The im
portance of the subject was emphasized
by Mr. Terry's statement that thirty-six
states of the union have general statutes
regulating motor vehicles and no two or
them are alike.
Mr. Terry's 'spech virtually outlined th«
fundamental objects of the coming' national
legislative convention to be held under the
auspices of the American Automobile As
sociation in Washington on February la.
IS and 17. to which th* Governors of all th»
states have been invited to send as dele
gates their accredited representatives in
charge of th- enforcement of their respec
tive automobile laws. Mr. Terry said:
"There are thirty-three ate* which have
separate, distinct, and. in many respects,
very different, motor vehicle regulations.
! When you consider this, and the further
fact that even within the borders of a
single state in i.ot a few instances the sep
arate counties, towns, villages and cities
have passed motor vehicle ordinances pe
culiar to such localities and differing one
from another and all differing in some re
spects from the motor vehicle law appli
cable to the state in general, you get as a
net. result confusion worse confounded.
"There are two ways in which this par
ticular evil may be cured, One Is by the
enactment by Congress of a federal regis
tration automobile bill. providing only, in
substance, that, upon registration at a bu
reau of the national capital after registrar
' tion has been had in the state of the resi
dence of the owner of the motor vehicle.
his license to operate and use the vehicle)
shall be. recognized by every state in the
Union, and thus freedom in the use of the
vehicle secured, without •".-■ •-- license and
without payment of further fees. The other,
by the enactment of all the states of %
uniform motor vehicle law. exempting non
residents from Its registration provisions.,
as does, for example, the law of the State'
of New York.
'No one will dissent from the proposition
that unfformi^ in motor vehicle regulation
is not only expedient but in the highest de
gree desirable. It is conceded that mora
harm and injustice are sometimes brought
about by lack of uniformity of the laws oS
the various states than by imperfect or
even bad laws in special Instances. No
where is this better Illustrated than in th«
case of travel upon the highways.
"To take a concrete example, supposa
that one were to start in his motor vehicle
at New York to make a trip to his national
capital at Washington to transact business
with his government. He will have no
sooner left the ferryboat on the Jersey
shore. before he will be stopped and notified
that be can proceed no further. He will
find that what he had always assumed to
be his natural right to use the highways of
the country, so long as he scrupulously re
garded the rights of others upon the high
way, has been erected Into a privilege. to
be purchased only by the payment of
money and the expenditure of time and
trouble in seeking out one of the govern
ment officers and paying fees for a so
called license. He must find the proper
officer at the place where these fees ara
received, fill out and sign an application
blank, pay his money and receive four
tags, each one of which 13 good for two
days' enjoyment of this grand privilege of
using th« highways; and after he has don»
all these things he will find that the stats
Is not yet satisfied. He must, before ha
may proceed, fill out and execute a regu
lar power of attorney, making the Secre
tary of State his agent to receive process in
any proceeding which may be brought
against him while he is enjoying this so
called inestimable privilege.
"When he reaches the borders of th<»
state of Maryland he will be again held up
and obliged, before he will be allowed to
continue his Journey, to go through very
much the same process as he did when ha
attempted 10 cross the borders of New
Jersey. He will be put to pretty much the
same annoyance, inconvenience and ex
pense when he attempts to cross The line
into the District of Columbia, and it will
be very likely that when he reaches th«
seat of his national government ha will b*
so Incensed as to have entirely forgotten
the business upon which he came, and t>»
possessed only with the idea that there
should be some power in the national gov
ernment to remedy the evil of which h<»
has been a victim, and that If there is such,
power, It should be speedily and effectively
"There seems to be no reason why regu
lations applicable In one section of tha
country should not be equally applicable to
every other section of the country, why tn»
provisions of law adequate for one state
should not be equally adequate- for every
other state. It would seem that in tnl3
country of ours, If we are really a nation,
there Is no reason why a license to operate
a motor vehicle good in New York shouM
not be equally^ good in San Francisco and
in every portion of the highway between,
these two cities, and why one knowing
thoroughly the law under which he has
secured such license should not be able to
proceed from New York to San Francisco
in the perfect confidence that if he obeys
that law he will not be violating the taw
in any of the Jurisdictions traversed by th*
highway upon which he travels.
"The automobiltst claims no special prtv-.
ileges. but he claims the right to fair treat
ment, and to that end that the laws which
regulate the use of hi* highways shall ft*
so plain and reasonable that he who runs
an automobile may read them, and may
obey them, and still may travel with com
fort and freedom from intolerable exaction*
and needless burdens."
