'AUTOMOBILE ROAD FACES.
yo More in France, in View of Mail j/ A end en is. Paris, May 27. The Paris-Maflrid automobile race, the first rtage cf which, from Versailles to Paris, a dis tance of 341 miles, was accomplished by 110 competitors within recorded times varying from T> hours IS minutes to 14 hours 5S minutes, has Founded the death knell of automobile road rac ing in France and on the Contlnuent of Europe. It was a terrible and sanguinary course. In ppite of military and police precaution, the list of casualties comprises eight killed outright and twenty-five wounded. M. Combes, Prime Min uter and Minister of th* Interior, at once pro hibited the continuance of the race on French ♦prritoir, and the Spanish Government, upon the !r.!tsative of young King Alphonso XIII, fol lowed the example Fe" by France. Public in ciprstion against automobile road raring is aroused. • The press teems with descriptions of the race •with characteristic headlines, among- which one may ■4: "The Race of Carnage," "The Match for Death." "The Abominable Crime." The rr;ost influential French writers have taken up the matter in earnest, and M. Jules Claretie. , tnitiW of the Theatre Francois, himself an ardent automobiiist. In an article entitled "La Course a la Mort." denounces the "demon cf 6pe*>d craze" that inspires the "Mephistoph rtes-llk« drivers of these lugubrious racing ir.achines." IX. Ernest Paudet follows up the FuJijeot vigorously In the "Gaulois." and In an editorial headed "L.c Vertige de la Mort" al- Judes to the Paris- Madrid race as the "demoniac i:rpeplech.ise from Paris to the charnel house." The Ministry of the Interior is flooded with peti tions ar.d protests urging the government to pre vent any future automobile road races. The matter has been brought up in the Chamber of Deputies and in ihe Senate. In automobile cir cles the idea is gaining ground that a bill will soon be introduced into the French Parliament bared upon the Bailey automobile bill recently Figned by Governor Odell and which is now law In the State of New-York Mr. Dalliba, a prominent resident of Paris, was on* of the numerous spectators of the Paris-Madrid race, and in a swift, powerful Mercedes machine iooli up a station on Sunday morning on the course near the village of Coignieres. Mr. Dalliba was provided with a camera. One of his photographs shows the automobile ambulance of the Automobile Club of France waiting in a field while the surgeons and assistants were on the road attending to the wounded. Another represents the crowd of Parisian motormen ana peasants standing along the route near Chartres. A third photograph was taken of the wreck of Mr. Terry's 70-horse power racing machine of the Mercedes make. Mr. PaH;! •<. who saw the accident, thus de scribed it to. a reporter of the Paris "Presse": Twenty kilometres after the start, when trav elling at the rate of 120 kilometres an hour, Mr T-rry, who was driving a 70-horsepower Mercedes, arrived at the entrance to Coignieres alongside one of the competitors Mr. Porter, -nrho was driving ur English machine, and who ha a left some minutes before him. The road through Coi&nieres is far from good but Mr. Terry, who is an excellent driver full of confidence in his powers, tried to pass Mr Por ter on the left. The latter turned his steering Tvheel to the left. Mr. Terry, to avoid a collision. use forced to drive his machine onto the pave raent. At this moment the tire of his left fore wheel burst, but the vehicle, travelling like a cannon ball. In spite of The side slip, shot In front of the English automobile. #^ n «rfi The left wheel broke, and the vehicle, though i"h» motor was thrown out of pear continued for thrVe hundred metres to sweep sideways along the road at a speed of eighty kilometres an On account of the breaking of the wheel the reservoir coriaininp: 120 litres of essence, burst. The names cominp: from the valve set it on fire, a:id w*en the vehicle was finally brought to a standstill it was a mass of Came. , „ .. Mr T<"-ry ivho by sheer skill and sangfroid had thus accomplished a unique tour de force, exhausted by the terrible effort be had made, remained motionless on his seat.

The automobile, ever, was com pletely consumed. Two trees on the side of the load were als-o burnfd. - By a strange coincidence the automobile of Mr ' Porter the Involuntary use of the acci dent tras overturned a few kilometres further on. ar.d his machinist, who was buried beneath the vehicle, was burned to death. Th thrilling accident took i. lace near Bon ueval. An eve witness and actor In the scene gave to the "Paris Daily Messenger" the fol lowing account or the event: Th-re i" a. smooth stretch of road extending abort four miles before reaching Bonneval and o* course all the racers took advantage of this to turn on the full speed switch to the utmos.

The thick clouds of dust on the road between Versailles end Paris last Sunday were a prime cause of the accidents, for the drivers were thus prevented from seeing the turns in time. and, nearly blinded, were unable to discern grul leys. drains, culverts or curbs.

Drovers and peasants came up and attacked the occupants of the automobile with bludgeons and sticks. M. Hulliier's head was cut open, and M.

To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: The following quotation from a letter written to General James S. Wadsworth. In 1854, Illustrates Abraham Lincoln's views on the negro and hia right to the ballot: How to better the condition of the colored race has Ions: been a study which has attracted my .serious and careful attention; hence 1 think I am clear and decided as to what course I shall pursue In the premises, regarding it as a religious duty, as the nation's guardian of these people who have so heroically vindicated their manhood on the battle- Jield. where, in assisting to save the life of the republic, they have demonstrated their right to the ballot, which is but the humane protection of the flap- they have .so fearlessly defended. A. E. D. New-York, June 4. 1903. RESERVOIRS TO PREVENT FLOODS. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: The damage inflicted by the Mississippi floods this spring, as well as more or less every year, the present damage in Kansas and Missouri and the minor floods elsewhere serve to direct our attention to a matter that should If possible be remedied even if It costs some time and money to do it. We are spending large sums annually under the River and Harbor bill, and in other ways on the Western rivers; practically all of It being only temporary in results. Now. If we can adopt a com prehensive scheme whereby the whole territory shall be forever relieved of floods, it would be worth many millions. To that end allow me to suggest consideration of the idea of constructing a series of large storage reservoirs at different points on the Mississippi, the Missouri and all of their im portant affluents, to impound the excess of water fall, which may be used for several purposes, to wit: s First— For irrigating public and private lands in the more arid sections, such as the States of Kan sas, Nebraska. Colorado, etc.. such use of the water to produce a revenue. — Second-In some instances the water as power could be used to create electric energy, to be usea In lighting towns, heating buildings, running car T e hi'rd— After the water had been thus used it could be allowed to flow down to lower P°,; u^. ' " the rivers to improve navigation, when the rivers are low. Possibly some of this water could be sold to some towns for a water supply, so tlia.. in me round up the government would derive a large rev enue from these sources. This work Is large, and would cover a term of years to complete, but would put the immense vafley of the Misaiss ippi In the most substantial position agriculturally in the world. m . -™- p " W - Southport. Conn., June 4. 1903. WHY YOUTH DO NOT ENTER MINISTRY. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: The Tribune recently stated that there Is great anxiety among ecclesiastics of all shades of belief. including Roman Catholic, over the great de cline of candidates for the ministry. Having made Borne inquiries during the last five years among the students of at least three of our leading uni versities as to reasons for not entering the minis try. I find that the answers may be grouped under three heads: the lack of honesty of church people in paying the minister's salary, the lack of honor among church people in rendering assistance to their clergy and In co-operating with him in the proper work of the parish, and the unjust advan tages taken of the minister, whose hands are tied. If he happens to disagree with some prominent per son, either layman or ecclesiastical superior. In other words, the Church has brought upon itself a state of affairs that is going to increase the serious ness of the problem of clerical supply. The son of a man who has made life miserable for his pastor, or priest, is not going to place himself under men like his father. The graduates of college are, almost to a man. gentlemen, and they have a high sense of honor, and they cannot see their way to being treated in any other than an honorable way. It would be untrue to say of them that, as a class, they are irreligious. And if it be averred of them that they ought to be willing to make per sonal sacrifices for the Rood of the church, to offer the other cheek, as it were, the answer is found In the fact that most of them do face tremendous odas in other vocations. No. Mr. Editor, the causes of deficiency are not In the young men. but in the old men and old women. It is not a question of diversity of creeds or conflicting exegesis or of scientific agnosticism, for there are plenty of good college men who are not disturbed over these issues Th« real, rock bottom trouble is the dishonorable and dishonest church members. Only second rate young men or young men of too limited experience to see the real state of affairs will offer them- F Plve« under such conditions. And the Church will have to take such as it can get until the spirit of honor revives. The further fact that the men who do offer themselves to the ministry ask to be sent to foreign mission fields verifies this position. An out and'out heathen is a more honorable man than a domineering ignoramus who wants to boss the parish. Trust the young m T^s'^-SaV' cood sense. iuaM.-.b Ayii^Aa. New-York, June 4, 1903. NO KING IN THIS LAND. To the Editor of the New-York Tribune. Sir: I find your valuable journal on the reading room table of my hotel in this faraway country. In the issue of the 6th inst. I note a poem en titled "God Save Our President," that was Intro duced to the world by a few hundred children sing ing it in one of the ward schools of your city. No. 116 at No. 215 East Thirty-second-st. The third line, second verse, reads: "Proclaim him king," As an anti-imperialist. I wish to suggest that the word "king" be changed to "man, or change the lino to read "Proclaim the people's rule. rto want no man "proclaimed king" In the United States, much less do we want our little children, even in song, taught to look upon our President as anvthins but the servant of the people. Maybe the country from which I write makes me super sensitive about -kings." HEIjHN M GOTJGAR . Moscow. Russia. May 29, 1503. Home address, Lafayette, Ind. IRISHMEN DISCREDITED. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: As an American and an old reader of The Tribune, I thank you heartily for your editorial entitled "IrlEhmen Discredited" in to-day's paper. I assure you that I am not the only one who has noted the significant silence of these people on the subject of the awful unprovoked slaughter of the unoffending Jews at Kishineff, and not a represent ative Irishman nor a prelate of the Catholics Church was heard at the Carnegie Hall meeting. The reason is. of course, obvious to a thoughtful observer. Thousands thank you for your brave words. MOUTH. New-York. June 3, 1903. RUSSIA AND THE JEWS. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: Apropos of the agitation and the broad minded and scholarly editorials in your paper re garding the Russian massacres, permit me to state that, outside of the grand and statesman like message of Secretary Hay, sent by him some time ago to the Rumanian Government in opposi tion to the barbarous treatment of the Jews by that country, there have been many other evidences of the friendship of the Republican party for my CO In e ii^2 O ?"^-a"s a delegate to the Republican State Convention in the city of Rochester I drew up and presented to the late Colonel Elliott F.

The resolution received his approval, and I am pleased to state that it was incorporated Into the platform.
