OLD PARTIES WILL

VOTERS, HE DECLARES
Illinois. Politician Believes
Spirit of Independence
Predicting that the old parties w(ll soon
be wiped out as a result of the present
campaign, Oscar W. Powell, former
membtr of the Illinois legislature, Is at
present In Washington reviewing the
Eastern political situation. He telieves
that the increasing Independence of
American voters spells the doom of the
parties aa at present constituted.
That a bloodless and noiseless political
revolution now going on is the belief of
"It used to be that practically all men
wore aligned with one party or the
other, and voted for the party candi
date no matter who he was," continued
Mr. Powell. "The change from this
Idea Is one of the most significant evo
lutions now taking place In the United
States, In my opinion. It means that
In the future candidates for office must
go beforo the people entirely on their
"There are thousands ot men new
who oponly admit that they will not
vote the same way this year as they
did fpur years ago. There aro changes
In all parties. Tho significant thing
dbout it Is that they were not ashamed
to say they will bolt their party ticket.
"it used to be that tho man who
snitched In an election was spoken of
contemptuously. Now, however, the
candidates themselves realise this con
dition, and openly oik the votes of men
of all parties,"
MILWAUKEE GETS ;
BIG MOTOR RAGES
FOR ANOTHER YEAR
Rules for Road Construction
Will Be Urged to Reduce
Danger to Drivers.
By HARRY WARD.
Despite. the unfavorable conditions atJ
tending the running of the Vanderbllt
Cup and Grand Prise autpmobllo race
at Milwaukee last week, the Wisconsin
metropolis will get the two contests
again next year. The races will be run
earlier next year. In order to avpld In
clement weather, and It Is likely a bet
ter course will, be selected.
The Motor Cups Holding Company, a
corporation organised to hold tho racing
trophies wherever the races aro held,
gavo the contests to tho Milwaukee pro
moters for three successive years, sub
ject to the acceptance of tho Milwaukee
organisation. Sanction was 'obtained
from the Automobile Club of America
and the American- Automobile Associa
Before aay mora road races are held
It Is expected the "Three A's" will
be asked to promulgate rules regard
ing road construction as -a result of
the death of David nnjee-Hrowii and
.the serious Injury of Ralph De Palma
at tne jtiuwauKee races last week, it
Is understood the racing drivers' organi
sation will ask the contest board of
the "Threfl A's" to draft rules eovern-
Ing the minimum width, maximum height
ot crown, ana tne aliening or roaas
to which a race sanction Is given.
The Vanderbllt course was resurfaced,
the drivers declare, without removal of
the old surface, and aa a result the
roadway had a high1 crown, which pre
vented possibility of even traction when
ever two cars were abreast or one
car passed another. Such n condition
on a comparatively narrow roadway, the
drivers contend, waa bound to result
In accidents, and accounted for the
alow time made In the races.
