Kew Ybrk, Aug. i 34. Poor old
England has had many Jolts, but the
sauciest slap on her, sesamoid bono
was delivered when the Meadowbrook
team won the 'international polo cup.
Not even the recent fear of a Ger
man Invasion caused a greater sensa
tion among the titled fortune hunters
than the coming to this country of
the famed trophy. '. " .
Downcast but undaunted England
It determined to regain her prestige
on the polo field. And who do you
think has come to the rescue? No
ether than King Alfonso of Spairt.
Not having his hands full with a war,
a revolution and the nursery, he finds
time to start a lehd-a-hand mission.
With Alfy Thirteen as long as
their hearts beat are the dukes of
Westminster and Koxeburghe and the
earl of Lonsdale, who form an advis
ing and devising committee, the sole
aim of which is to invade us with the
best polo team England can assemble.
Oh molcy! Imagine the hifalutln
doings Long Island is In for when
the monocled. stiff-backed coaches ar
rive and begin supervising the serv
ing of tea and marmalade to the
players at regular Intervals. West

Associated Chautauqua course people
are so desirous of putting Albuqui rque

It was rough on England to lose
the polo championship. The only
calamity mure disastrous would be to
take away the national "h's." A
Briton dislikes to admit the super
iority of anything not English, so
when searching for an excuse to hang
the loss of the cup upon they found
it in the ponies of the MeudowbrookH,
which were far and away better thun
mounts used by the Hurlinghnm
team. It was indicated that the
American team's imnics had been
purchased in England and were the
pick of the country.
When the noble trio who have un
dertaken to get bark that cup began
operations they bumped Into the lack
of first-class .ponies problem. Then
Westminster had a hunch. It might
be more elegant to say that he was

that Albuquerque should be able to
take five of them. He proposes the

When you read next summer that
Hurlinghnm and Meadowbrook are
playing for the polo championship,
you will know that an English team,
mounted on Spanish ponies, coached
by two dukes and a member of the

said: "The Americans hit straighter

and they play tennis. There is no
better practice for polo driving. If

MANY BOOSTERS FOR
Enthusiastic Meeting Satur
day Night-To Get Busy
at Once and Push
The city council, at Its next
mcetlnr, will be asked for a
blanket franchise which will per-
mlt the running of a street car
line through the Highlands.
Thla was decided at a meeting
of the committee composed of
Attorney J. W. Wilson, chair-
man; M. P. Ptamm, F. O. Pratt,
V. A. PorterMeld, D. K. B. Sell-
era and Dr. P. Q. Cornish, which
was. held in the offices of the
Porterfleld Real Estate company
on West Gold avenue this after-
Several franchises were cited for
example, thla afternoon, and the one
to be asked for from the council will
cover the entire city, the route the
l.ne would take to be BDecifled in the
Several route were mentioned t
the meeting but none decided upon.
' M P. ritumm made a suggestion
i w hich met with the deelded approval
cf those present and which will ro
cicubt be most popular with the stock- i
holders of the new company. Mr.
Stamm suggested that a Clause be In
serted in the franchise wherein the
city would be permitted to take over
the railway system should it so de
sire, after i term of ten years, pay
ing a bonus of 10 per cent to th
original investors on their original
investments, as well as 5 per cent
per annum for money used. The plan
promises to be a popular one and
will be fully considered before the
franchise is presented to the council.
An enthusiastic meeting of resi
dents of the Highlands as cll as
many from the lowlands, was held
Saturday night in the office of Llojd
1 Hunsaker on W. Gold avenue, at
which preliminary steps were taken
for the financing "f a street car sys
tem for the Highlands. over one
hundred property owners attended
and all were enthusiastic.
The enthusiasm was so strong that
there was time wasted In discussing
' the building and those present devoted
themselves simply to considering the
financing of the enterprise.
The meeting was called to order by
M. P. Stamm, one of the original
boosters for the plan who briefly out
lined the possibilities. , John M.
White was selected us chairman of
I the gathering.
' Mr. White suggested the following
working plan, which he had carefully
written and which ho read:
"Solicit subscrip. n to the capital
stock at the rate oi 30 cents a front
loot on all property abutting the
street on which the line runs. and
one street back; 30 cents a foot front
on both sides of the second street
back from the car line, and 15 cents
a front foot on the third street back.
This will give a capital of 11,440 per
block, or 121,120 per mile, As this
assessment will be only twenty-live,
fifteen and seven and one-half dollars
respectively for a fifty-foot lot, and
as every lot so assessed will be worth
additional many times these amounts,
it Is safe to calculate that at least
two-thirds of the property owners
benefitted win acquiesce in their allot
ments of stock. This, tnen, would
supply a net working capital of $14,
OhO per mile, which would build a
first-class line with modern up-to-date
equipment, free from ay in
cumbrance. The payments can be
made so easy by distributing them
over a perid of six months or more,
that no property owner will be in
convenienced, and when the line is. in
operation the owner of a fifty-foot
lot has not even made the small do
nation that twenty-five dollars would
he to him for such an Improvement,
but has the actual worth of his money
in stock in a carefully and econom
ically constructed car system, without
puying any one a dollar bonus or
profit. - ,
'Who chairman was authorized, at
last Saturday evening's meeting to
appoint a committee to aid him in' the
seleetion of the route, soliciting sub
scriptions as well as obtaining a fran
chise, and he appointed the follow

The fallowing resolutions were
adopted at Saturday evening's inet-t-lug,
which clearly shows the enthu
siasm 'with which the new proposi
tion is being received by the residents
of the Highlands:
"Whereas, the people of the H'ikIi

funds for the line, he scarcely met
with a refusal, which proved en
