followed Blllle Hibbs home, a length and a half
before the favorite, which was all out to save
third money from Bilfll.
The Chevy Chase Steeplechase for hunters,
riaaen by gentlemen jockeys, furnished a pretty
race, in spite of the fact that only three horses
went to the post, with two of them, Ardetto and
Essex, coupled as the Kerr entry, at the pro
hibitive price of 1 to 10. From a speculative
standpoint the race was a joke, but the crowd
showed full appreciation of the stirring drive
through the last furlong, when Ardetto was
driving to beat Ordessu and Essex, his stable
companion, had to come to the rescue. Mr.
Dion Kerr had the mount on Ardetto. Mr. Tay
lor handled Essex and Mr. I>ith rode Ordessu.

forlorn hope, either, coming to the last Jump, as
Essex, which had made the early running, had
dropped back, and urdessu was fighting It out
head and head with Ardetto. The last named
finally disposed of Ordessu. but had to be rid
den out to beat Essex, which Mr. Taylor was
doing his best to restrain, inasmuch as Mr.

NAVY CREW VICTORIOUS
Six Lengths Ahead of Georgetown
in First Race of Season.
-Annapolis, April 6.^-Tho midshipmen showed
the rudder of the** boat to the Georgetown
oarsmen this afternoon in a two-mile,
oigrht-«>ai^<f*race. which opened the local and
intercollegiate rowing season The navy's time
wan 11 minutes and 5t second*, and that or
Georgetown 12 minute* 2:. 4-5 seconds, the dis
tance separating the boats at the finish being
about six lengths.
The water was choppy and th» wind fresh,
and directly again*-. the oarsmen. This ac
counts is a measure tor the fact that the time
was more than two minutes slower than tho
record for the course. As the race was the first
of the season. Coach Qlendon was well satisfied
with the work of his charges under the circum
stances. The navy has a strong and harmonious
crew, and it is generally believed that if thu
pood work of to-day is continued, the entry fur
the Poughkeepsie race will be obtained.
The Georgetown crew whs easily ten pounds
lighter to the man than the representatives «>f
the Naval Academy, and realizing that an early
spurt was their only chance of victory, started
the race at a high clip, maintaining ■ alight lead
for a third of a mil*. The superior strength of
the navy oarsman wore them down. • although
the midshipmen were rowing a slower stroke,
and from that point to the finish th? race was a
procession.
The officials were: G. G. Lincoln. Yale, referee;
Lieutenant Commander N. E. Irwin, U. 8. N. A.,

ably the best judge of automobile trade' conditions
In the business to-day.
Despite the late opening of the season, Mr. T,urle

the largest and most complete stock of motor sup

"Last fall I purchased a tf-horsepower Columbia

Speeding over the historic course was too strong
for him to resist.
The car arrived at King's Corner and started over
the course at 12:30 p. m. At 4:30 o'clock the speed
ometer showed that in miles had been covered.
Lytle let the car out polng down the Jericho Turn
pike, and a speed of sixty-five miles an hour wai
easily attained. After passing through East Nor
wich and Jericho, he again 'opened the throttle, and
■pod up the backstretch toward Hull's Head nt
faster than a mlle-a-niinute gait. Arriving at the
Hull's Head turn, where Lytle made, tils headquar
ters prior to last year's cup race, a stop was made
and th« plucky Ilitle driver was cordially greeted
by numerous friends and acquaintances. All want
>'l to know about this year's Pope-Toledo racer,
and them was general rejoicing when Lytle re
ported that work on the car was well along and
that it would soon be ready for a trial spin on tha
roads outside Toledo.
During the recent run of Edward Gibbs Murphy

be so provided with the rim. and on actual ex
perience, working under the watch, the tire m
removed and readjusted in three minutes. A fur

A car which recently left the works of J M
Quinby * Co.. Newark, attracted no little atten
tion, owing not only to Its handsome appear
ance, but to a number of Interesting innovations
in the construction of the motor. It was Invented
by Peter Jenne 3 of Chestnut Hill. Perm. The
latter has been building a few cars sinco 1902 for
himself and friends, and the present car Is the
perfected result* of his experiments. The motor
l.as four cylinders, develops 35 horsepower and has
three speeds forward, the construction of the car
being of nickel chroma steel throughout One of
the Improvements in the construction Is that the
oiling of the pump and other parts is absolutely
automatic, only tho engine requiring any attention.
Tli* con* clutch is of novel construction, being so
adjusted that it is absolutely impossible for its
suddon application 'o result in jerking the car. The
carburettor Is absolutely flexible and without limit
as to its abiyty to supply tha engine 1 .
Recently a great number of automobile concerns
have been making a specialty of calling attention
to 6om» particular feature on their cars, such as
a double carburettor, a special kind of clutch, etc.
Asked what particular feature stood out on the
Royal Tourist. C A. Duerr, of the company, said
that tho day for selling automobiles on the strength
of any ono point was past. "With the Royal," .
he continued, "we do not make a specialty of any
one feature. If the term specialist were to be ap
plied to us In any sense, it might be aa far as it
takes in our entire chassis. There we have stuck
to the same old fundamental principles laid down
years ago."
E. R- Hollander, of the Hoi-Tan Company. In
speaking of the growing popularity of t|he landau
let and limousine bodies, calls attention to the
fact that all over Europe the closed and partly
closed car are decidedly more popular than the
touring car. The tact that these ears are built
so that the windows can be dropped make them, la
nine caaee out of ten, far more comfortable and
satisfactory than the open ones. This is especially
true during the summer, when the dust nuisance
la so pronounced, and during Inclement and cold
weather.
Two years ago few closed bodies were used In
America, but the demand U growing greater every
year and has been very pronounced during the
present season. Another fact which he calls atten-

H. H. Westlnghouse. who Is a recent buyer of n

chase that the engine construction and the. trans

of any other American made car. He la pleased
with his purchase, and admits that the actual
merits of the ear came as a surprise to him.
1 "Brakes are coming In for close scrutiny this
season." says Harry S. Houpt, whoso company is
agent for the Thomas products. "In view of which
It Is Interesting to know why • contracting band
brakes were adopted on the countershafts of the
big flyers this season.
"Automobile engineers devise some unique tests
at times when a new model I* placed on the road
and when they wish to compare the result* of
practice with the deductions of theory. That was
the case when the designers and engineers of the
Thomas Flyer came to the question of which
brakes they should use, contracting or expanding,
for the hand lever. Theory was good, as far as It
went, but wUat they really wanted to know was
which kind would actually hold the car best.
"H. S. Haas, superintendent of the company
finally hit on the plan. Two 1307 models were used.
Both were fitted with foot brakes en the rear hubs
of the contracting, leather-to-metal type. For th«
hand lever brakes, one was equipped with con- 1
tracting, leather-to-metal brakes on countershaft
drums, and the other with expanding metal-to
metal brakes In the Interior of the rear hubs, in
such a manner that tension and area were- the
same on each and would, apparently, have the
same effect. A scale attached to the back of the
front seats and to the hand, levers of the two cars
served to aid In eouallislng the pressure.
"Both cars were then loaded with pig Iron equal
ling the weight of seven persons, the seating ca
pacity of the flyers, run up a 23 per cent grade
and turned around. Then the hand lever brakes
on both were applied at the same tension. The
car with the metai-to-metal expanding* brakes
