BRITISH HEADQUARTERS IN
FRANCE. Sept. 13. The British have
retaken the mine-crater at Hooge in 1
one of the moit picturesque actions
sees along the British front for a'
tmc time. Howe is the name of)
what was once a village In a region,
mi fiat as a' billiard table. It is in the '
Ypres salient, where. It is generally
agreed.' more blood has been spilled
than ovv-r any similar length of line

' The blowing np of mine under the t
Oarman trench recently made Hooge '
abort the hottest place in tbe Ypres
salient. It was one of tbe largest
mine the British have exploded, and
t made a hole in the earth about forty '
' fct deep and seventy feet across.
' Tbe lirltlah charged and took posses-,
sion f te position.
In reply to tbe mine, the Germans
brought up their flame-ejector appar-,
atns which they had tried on the;
French before, but now used on thej
British for the first time. Around,
tt e edge of the mine-crater tbe Eng
lishmen and the Germans were, at one j
place, only five feet apart. The crater i
was so big and it had so disfigured the
landscape that it was difficult to'
"consolidate" the position, as tbe of
ficial bulletins say partlculsrly when
showers of bombs from either side

On top of a bombardment of all the
neighboring part of the British line
where the trenches were farther apart
and of bombardment with mortars
and bombs where they were close to
gether, the Germans suddenly spray
ed the British front with fire over a
section where their infantry attacked.
The British had to give up their crat
er and Hooge too and some five hun
dred yards of trenches. When they
set out to recover the lost ground at
first, they found the Germans bad the
line bristling with machine guns, so
they regained only one end of what
they had lost
The rule In tbe Ypres salient seems
to be never to He down tamely after
any set-back. Both sides fight to re
cover a loss no matter what the cost.
Sanguinary battles are waged for a
few acres of ground. All one day the
I) tit tab kept an almost continuous roar
of shells over other parts of the sa
lient. They made tbe German trench
es boll with dust under clouds of
shrapnel smoke. The German guns
replied. They threw in some more
seventeen-lnch shells Into the ruins
of Ypres and Into other points which
they hail not considered worthy of
eventeen-inch before. Tbe thunders
of this artillery duel could be heard
thirty to forty miles to the rear. It
made a sound like the roll of a drum
with almost no Interval between the
shots. Nothing heavier had been
heard since Souches.
About two the next morning guns
which had been silent before, came
into action. They were all directed
on the German trenches at Hooge.

next minute a British major at the
head of a battalion line, leaped over
the parapet. . As he said, he found
"nobody at home" The Germans
were In their dug-out according to
tbe custom on such occasions, taking

The happiness of the officers and
men as they told the story of that

gratitude to their artillery support.

the Colonel, "and what the Infantry

of realisation that tbe guns meant life

like that of a human voice came
from a pile of earth and it was found
that one of the high explosives had
closed the door of a. dug-out The oc
rupsnts were rescued alive.
When an officer and some men
came to the edge of the mine-crater
they found nearly a hundred Germans

Rushing up the traverse the British
drove the Germans before them with
bombs gaining more ground. In ad

the Germans. "One German prisoner
showed me how to -use them," said a
British bomb-thrower. "He did it in
stinctively when he saw I was fumb

of him. You had to pull a string on

seemed to be first rate bombs."

RACE FROM EL PASO
TO PHOENIX IS OFF
FOR THIS SEASON,
El Paso Business Men Unwilling
to Contribute as Formerly; In-
terest Lacking and Phooni-i
cians Apathetic. i
No El Paso to Phoenix road rare
will be held this yesr. This is the
report E. Power Conway, president of '
the State Automobile Association
brought with him from Phoenix. There .
will probably be no big road race i
ffom any point to Phoenix at Knlrj
time. Requisite funds for prize mon-!
les have not been forthcoming. i
When Power Conway was in Bisboe -a
few Weeks since he stated the ;
Willi jgness of -Phoenix to contribute!
liberally for an El Paso to Phoenix i
race this year. There was greater j
reason ior uneraitty uecause mere
would be no Los Angles to Phoenix
race and all available funds could go
to the one event Instead of being
split as in the past. Phoenicians
open to see a great race iron) tne j
i-aas uity wttn prise monies in excess
of $10,000. Now he considers all road
races off. Just at Los Angeles from
one end did not see its way to mak
ing a contribution as In past years, so
it Is with Kl Paso at the other end.
El Paso Withdraws.
Those most Interested in the racing
game In Phoenix took up the matter
Of . the annual El Paso-Phoeuix race
with the El Paso Chamber of Com
merce. That organisation now has a
bureau which has taken over the work
formerly handled by the El Paso Auto
Club. The reply (bat was sent back
was to the effect that the business
men of El Paso do not see their way
clear to contributing as they have'
done In past years. Efforts to bring
about the race then ceased at Thoe-1
nix. As to what sentiment had been !
found in other points along the race I
route, Conway did not state, but it is ,
to be presumed that such sentiment i
was not highly favorable.
Interest Is Lacking.
Several weeks since, after receiv-1
ing inquiries from a number of would-
be entrants. Secretary Joe Gray of the
State Auto Association wrote to Rob-
ert II. Rinehart to El Paso asking as
to sentiment there, Rinehart replied
that the matter would be up to the ;
Chamber of Commerce and he thought '
$500, but not $1,000. might be raised, j
He, personally, would not undertake
to devote so much time to a race as
In the past but with assistance, was j
ready to undertake the management
at that end.
Gray also wrote several letters to
Phoenix urging that the initiative be
taken there if a "race was to be held
and to Tucson to learn sentiment
there. The Old Pueblo was not found
to be enthusiastic. Meantime no ac
tion had been taken here looking to
ward a race. The "fans" stood ready
to again do thetr part but Pboenlx
was the most interested community
and her action was awaited. No let
ter from the capital city relative to
a race was received here and all In
formation on tbe subject received has
come from Conway.
History of Race.
Tbre years ago J. J. Bowen talked
with J. R. Henderson and others sug
gesting a road race from El Paso to
Phoenix similar to the Loa Angeles
Phoenix race. His Idea was to adver
tise the Borderland Route to tourists
by proving the ease and speed with
which the link from El Paso to Phoe
nix could be traversed. Phoenix did
not became enthusiastic and consid
ered that the plan waa broached too
late to be put in operation that year.
Bowen revived bis plan the follow
ing year and brought the matter up
early enough to make It practicable.
He and Joe Gray made a special trip i
to Phoenix to take the matter up
there. It was promised support,
though not to tbe extent of the coast
race. EI Paso waa Interested and
Rinehart undertook the management;
at that end. Bisbee won tbe night,
control and contributed $1,000, the
same as Kl Paso and Phoenix. The
remarkable success of the race Is,
Next year It again fell to Blsbee to
take a strong Initiative for the race.
Rinehart again managed the El Paso
end and the work of lining up the
Arisona cities for it had to be done
from here. It was done and the lace
was assured. The record of It eclips
es anything that was ever achieved
by racers from tbe Pacific Coast The
burden herte fell ehlefly on J. J. Bow
en, J. It. Henderson, M. W. Powell, J.
H. Gray, Dr. N. C. Bledsoe, Dr. J. L.
Leonard, Dr. W. P. 81ms, B. L. Smith
and James Allison. Matters In Ari
sona and at tbe night control were
handled In a manner that won general
commendation. But for thetr efforts
nothing like the great success achiev
ed could have been possible.
! There will be many disappointed if
no race Is held, especially some half
doaen Intended entrants from this
city and Phoenix. With no opposi
tion race from the Coast, those who
would otherwise have entered that
event would have competed from El
, Paso and this would have meant un
doubtedly the largest number of
starters that ever competed In a long
dlataooe road contest. It would also
I have meant a higher class of cars and
! world famed drivers for It would
i have been the one great road racing
event of the year.
