Snmeroni Entries.
Tho sanction for the "Four Leaf
Clover Run" to bo given under the
auspices of tho Automobile Club of Wash
ington, May 15-18, Inclusive, has been fa
vorably acted upon by the contest board
of the American Automobile Associa
tion. The entry blanks, which are now
in the hands of the printer, are ex
pected to be ready for distribution about
Wednesday.
From all Indication there will be a
larger number of machines participating
in this run than in any other event of
this kind ever held in Washington. The
fact that each daj s fclart and finish

As one man who will have at least
two cars entered said yesterday: "It
means quite a saving when the question
of expense is taken into consideration.
On previous runs It not only cost me
for myself and tho driver of the other
car, but I had to pay the expenses of
my tao observers as welL"
Endurance runs are all given with one
object in view, and that is demonstrat
ing to the public just what a car can
do over roads such as are met up with
on an ordinary touring trip. Ordinarily
they have seen the cars start out on a
rnn and then not again until they come
in at tho finish What they have done
en route and the road conditions they
have encountered are made known to
them only from what they read about
the contest. Here they can see the
start and finish of each day's run and
note for themselves .just how the cars
made the trip each day. It affords them
an opportunity to see first hand just
how the different machines compare with
one another in a competition over roads
and under rules that apply to all alike.
The dealers themselves are anxious for
this comparison, as it not only en
lightens the public bnt also demonstrates
to their own satisfaction just how the
machine thej handle compares with that
of a competitor
Kirst Trip To-morrow.
Monday morning Clarence Barnard and
his Stoddard Dayton "50" will start out
on the first pathhndmg trip. Gettysburg,
Pa will be the objective pomt of the
first day's run. This town Is to be
the noon control on May 15. and arrange

the participants in the run, as well as
for supplying oil and gasoline to those
who may wish it Tuesday morning
Barnard will start out for York. Pa-,
which is to be the noon control on the
second day of the run A week from
tomorrow tho third dnys run will be
laid out. Tills da's run will give the
contestants a touch of Virginia roads,
for it Rads across the Aqueduct Bridge
Into the Old Dominion as far as
Iesburg, over the L-c-burg and Alex

KEEP YOUR AUTO
WELL LUBRICATED
Important Facts for (hvnnrs
to Bear in Mind.
The moit important feature of the auto
mobile is proptr lubrication If the ig
nition sj stem fails completely tho motor
wfll not run Shonld the carbureter lose
its adjustment, supplvlng no gas to the
cylinders, the same Is true. In either
case no damage results. However with
the oiling system out of order, supply
ing an insufficient amount of oil to the
friction surfaces, the motor continues to
run, and with very little warning the
excessive friction burns out a bearing
or causes the working parts to be dam
aged bcond repair
Manufacturers, realizing this, have de
signed the lubricating svstems as "fool
proof" as possible. Every friction surface
is provided with a means for lubrication
The most Indifferent operator has little
more to do than keep the oil reservoir
supplied and noto the flow of oil through
the sight gange Quite often It happens
that the oil pump becomes clogged and
the flow of of! stopped In cars provi
with a sight giuge fits trouble can be
detected when the motor is running.
The oil gauge is usually placed in plain
view on the dash and is part of the oil
circuit. In other words, the oil flowing
f its work must pass trough the sight
gauge and before the eye of the operator.
As different makers of cars employ dif
ferent systems for forcing the oil about
tho engine, the Instructions from the
manufacturer should be carefully noted
by the purchaser of a car. A great many
systems have no adjustment of the flow.
In such cases there is a single sight feed
on the dash and a constant level main
tained In tho crank case Other sys
tems have several sight feeds with adjust
3B"nts, and these lead to various parts o?
the motor. When once adjusted, these
sight feeds seldom get out of order. How
ever, it is quite often necessary to read
just them when another grade of oil
3s used.

The law as it now stands requires that
In making application for a license the
dealer must give the motor number of

"The demand this year is going to be

Plans are under way for the formation
of an automobile race drivers' organiza
tion, a meeting for that purpose having
been called. The idea of a drivers' asso
ciation has been approved by such stars
of the wheel a3 Robert Burman, Louis
Dlsbrow, Ralph de Palma, Harry F.
Grant, David L Bruce-Brown, Joseph
Matson, and others. Tho drivers intend
to work in harmony witn the contest
board of the American Automobile Asso
ciation, but at the same time to act as
an organization for the betterment of
conditions that they deem unsatisfactory
under tho rules.
One of the matters that the drivers
will take up is that of allowing novice
drivers to take part in important con
tests. They arc not opposed to the Intro
duction of new drivers, but they feel that
their experience should be gained in
minor events rather than in big races,
where a great deal is at stake and in
which every one is inclined to take the
greatest chances m order to win
A drivers' organization has long been
urged by George Robertson, who has npw
retired from racing, owing to an accident
prior to the last Vanderbllt race. Messrs
Disbrow and Matson are active In for
mulating the plans for the projected
body.

tho other cars in Massachusetts avenue."
"She seems to be missing pretty regu

who wore a mere coonskin.
"I think It I mean she is going per
fectly lovely," the "girl with the white
fox furs declared as she snuggled back
farther into the tonneau cushions and
gave a tug at the robes. Then, as
both men listened attentively to the hum
of the motor, evidently unmoved by her
remark, she Insisted in little louder
tone: "Why do you say 'her?' Is there
any particular reason for giving an auto
mobile the feminine gender?"
";No; unless It is that they are so
deuced uncertain," answered the man In
the honcst-to-goodness-mlnk coat, still
keeping an ear trained on the cylinder
that was missing; "or perhaps it's be

MAXIMUM LOADS
AT MINIMUM COST
Problem Which Motor Truck
Makers Are Solving.
How best to handle his goods with the
least outlay is tho problem every busi
ness man is trying to solve. Rates of
transportation are constantly increasing
but tho price of the goods remains the
same. Traflie conditions In the large
cities are becoming more congested day
by day Cities are constantly growing
and goods must be delivered at a greater
distance Horses have been performing
this work for years but are gradually
giving way to tho motor truck which It
is believed will offer the only solution
possible to the transportation problem
Motor trucks ln the first place not only
hanl larger loads than is possible for a
horse-drawn vehicle but do away with
much unnecessary handling of the ar
ticles ln question A large portion of the
expense attached to the transportation
of goods Is due to the cost of the han
dling of the articles at the terminals.
There are two axioms, however, which
aro recognized ln every delivery service.
First, the efficiency of a transportation
system is limited rot by Its carrying
capacity but by lis terminal facilities,
and second, the essential factor In trans
portation is not the cost of hauling the
goods but the expense of handling at the
terminal stations
Few owners realize the Importance of
theso facts as applied to their own In
stallation of motor trucks and to tho
facilities which they have for loading
them quickly and also of unloading them
with the least possible delay.
The motor truck Is not to be considered
as a substitute for so many horses; but
a new unit of transportation which can
be made to greatly improve the efficiency
SENATORS OF BOTH PARTIES
SEEKING NEW LEADERSHIP
Interesting Fights Will Take Place Soon After Con

Caucuses of United States Senators of

of the complexion of the Senate and
predictions as to Republican and Demo

and hand trucks have been in use for so
many years that It Is hard to consider
the problems of transportation under
new conditions. Transportation experts,
however, are solving the problem 'by
studying the conditions of each firm's
business and their present delivery sys
tem. Having familiarized themselves
with this they have set to work to keep
a minimum number of trucks running,
carrying a maximum load the greater
portion of the time. In addition to solv

nubile service, by relieving congested
traffic conditions. Formerly where half

EAST IS SEEKING
MINORITY LEADER

Based on Theory that Cannon
Does Not Want Place.
Elbowed aside for many years by com
binations of delegations from the Middle
and far West, tho Eastern Republicans
are about to make a bid for the leader
ship of the House of Representatives.
Wlth this Idea in view, they have prac
tically effected an alliance with two big
, Western delegations, which they claim
I rives them a maloritv nf thn Renuhllcans
, nessec, and Kentucky,
The campaign of the Eastern contingent
is based on the theory that Uncle Joe
Cannon will neither seek nor accept the
place as minority leader. It is known,
of course, that Mr Cannon has no am
bition ln this direction. He wants the
honor to go to some regular Republican.
While It Is generally believed that Uncle
Joo favom Representative James R.
Mann, of Illinois, doubt is expressed that
the former Speaker will take sides, in
asmuch as all of those who will be given
consideration are his friends.
The argument of the Eastern contin
gent is that It Is time that that section
was accorded recognition by the Repub
licans of the House. Since tho retirement
of Thomas B. Reed, of Maine, the West
has controlled tho Speakership
YOUNG MAN HELD
ON ARSON CHARGE
Confesses He Wanted to See
People Ilun.
Rcckvillc, March 25. Among the In
dictments so far found by the grand jury
now in session here Is one against
Charles W. Saffel, a young resident of
Galthersburg. who is charged with arson
as a result of the burning of the Summit
Heights Hotel property, In Galthersburg,
the night of the 2Sth of January.
The property was valued at $10,000
and was insured for about $5,000. It was
the Joint property of John B. Diamond
and Ignatius T. Fulks, both of Gaither
burg About two weeks after the fire Saffel
was arrested by State Fire Marshal
Thomas J. Ewell, who, with Detective
Louis Kratz, of Baltimore, and Sheriff
William E Victt, of this county,
spent a day ln Galthersburg Investi
gating the fire. At first Saffel de
nied all knowledge of how the build
ing caught fire, but later weakened and
confessed that It was he who had set
fire to the structure, his only excuse
being that he "wanted to see the people
run "
Saffel was taken before Justice Read
ing, in the Police Court here, to whom
he repeated his confession. He was com
mitted to Jail, being unablo to furnish
bail In the amount of $3,000 The build
ing was unoccupied at the time, but was
furnished tlrroughout.
