served by two electric elevators of the largest
size. The cars, as a rule, are stored In rows and
lane?, but =pr.es oV^tred by members will be par
titioned oft wit 11 Iron grills for Individual use.
The top floor, made exceptionally light by sky
lights, is being fitted up as a model repair shop.
under the direction of members of the dub who arc
especially interested In engineering matters, and
will contain the club dynamometer, designed for
measuring the power unri the efficiency of cars
under all conditions. Special amusement rooms anil
other accommodations art- ]>i.i\id<--d for chauffeurs.
The, building throughout Is of reinforced concrete
construction, and the storage of gasolene is out
side of the building.

Prince Scipione to Take Part in Con
test from Peking to Paris.
Naples, April 13.— Prince Scipione Borghese, eldest
son of Prln. c Paolo Horghese, bead of the ancient
house of that name, left Naples to-day on hla way
to Peking, accompanied by the Princess Scipione. to
participate in the automobile race from Peking to
Paris. TJie. princess will only accompany the prluce
to Peking, after which eho will return lo Italy By
way of San Francisco. Washington and New York.
The Peking to Parts automobile race Is being pro
moted by a Paris newspaper and has aroused con
siderable Interest In Europe- It Ik planned to send
the competing automobiles from Paris to some port
In China, probably Tlcn-Tsln, and have them start
from the Chinese capital on June 10. The Chinese
authority s. It has teen announced, have authorized
the contest. The plan Is to have the racers travel
over certain dlctancc-n every day, which will allow
the automobiles to be together every night. It is
reported that more than twenty automobiles have
tetn entered. Tbe distance from Peking to Pans is
about 8.700 miles. Supply depots are to be plaoed
along the route, which will be what is known aa
tbe Peking-Irkutsk caravan route.

Results of Work Done to Adopt
Standard for Manufacturers.
Tires and their standardization, a problem that
has confronted the automobile Industry from Its
Inception, is Id be the next Uu work of the me
chanical branch of the Association of l insert Au
tomobile Manufacturers Th«» success of the asso
ciation's screw standard, its standardized spark
plus. Its various experiments in metals and oils
and Its many educational engine tests will be fol
lowed by a series of tire tests and adoption of
standards which will b» of material advantage to
all motorists and manufacturers.
Tests show that the part ol the tire nearest the
ground, to give the best results, should he of com
pound rubber, as pure rubber will not stand the
continuous friction caused by coming in contact
with the road surface. Near the centre of the. tire
comes the "breaker strip," made up of two or
three layers of canvas, separating the tread from
the next layer of rubber, or "cushion stock." The
•'cushion stock" is -.snail:.- of the highest class
rubber, being only •Mfrhtly compounded.
The six* of tire* depends on the weight of a car
and its gearing. Many manufacturers have found
It of advantage to use. a smaller diameter tire on
th«» front wheels than on the rear, and careful In
vestigation seems to prove this to h* wise. First.
it Is much easier to steer, it having a smaller
friction area on the ground surface. This makes
the wear on the tire. a«n whole. considerably less,
with chances for punctures derre.ase.il.
One of the first recommendations of th* tir» com
mittee was the elimination of so many sizes of
tires, thai is, the wheel sizes. Up to the time th«
mechanical branch took hold of this matter, thera
wore twenty-three sizes of tires in the market,
many of which were incapable of doing the maxi
mum amount of work required, owing to their being
Of wrong proportion, noi only for the weight of
th« car. nut for the urea of the ground surface.
A (treat difficulty that has confronted the auto
mobile manufacturers is the various sizes of rim*
on the market, thus causing' considerable rim cut
ting- to tires. Many of the. rim makers of single
piece rims had a uniform size diameter and depth
of clinch, but not all. Through the efforts of the
brnncli. the rim makers have all agreed to a stand
ard 6lz« rim. to he inspected and paused by the tire
makers, who will guarantee any tire bearing the
rim association's stamp.
In no department of the motor supply trade are
there more Innovations tills season than in the line
of lamp*. Nothing sets a car oft s<> well as at
tractlv« lamps and nothing detracts more from Its
attractiveness than to carry lamps of obsolete de.
sign and mechanism.

Thomas Henderson, vice-president of the Licensed
Association of Automobile Manufacturers and of
the \Vinton Motor Carriage Company, has returned
to Cleveland from a month's trip through the Far
West. "I was astonished at the remarkable pros
perity of the "Western country." he said yesterday,
•"particularly of the Padflo Coast section. San
Francisco, now In the making, will be- greater and
better than ever before. There are wonderful
business opportunities on the coast for young men
of ability, especially In the sale of automobiles."
Charles A. Duerr, of C. A. Duerr & Co.. In
corporated, agents for the Royal Tourist, com
menting on conditions of the early period, says
they were not only crude, but It looked at the time
wellntgh Impossible to bring order out of the cha
otic stato by which the retail business was sur
rounded. The Royal Tourist establishment in
upper Broadway Is typical of the new conditions
and shows that the automobile business can be run
on a business basis, Just as well as any other com
mercial enterprise. The excellent salesroom, where
in are displayed all the latest models of the Royal
Tourist factory at Cleveland, seemingly has no
connection with the big garage or the fine modern
repair shop In the building, so well has It been laid
"Considering the Inclement weather of th* last
week, we have no cause to complain on the score
of business," says Harry 8. Houpt, of the Harry
8. Houpt Company, agents for the Thomas products
In New York. "In fact, the sales made during the
last few days. In which the Thomas W-horaepower
predominated, have more than fulfilled our ex
pectations. We cannot see that there Is any cause
tor the rumors that are being circulated tn some
quarters that this season will see an overproduo*
tlon of automobiles. They can be aocounted for
only by the fact that the buying public are placing
their orders for machines that have passed through
the test of years, and come through unscathed, In
other words. Investigation will show that those cars
whose names are veritable household words In auto*
mobUedom will be at a premium before many v rek»
nave passed."
On* bad effect of severs winter storms la the aa
noyanoe caused manufacturers through their In
ability to give finely finished ears a final test. The
heavy snow and sleet storm which prevailed along
the New England ©oast last week rendered the
roada particularly muddy and slushy. In conse
quence the Electric Vehicle Company deemed It
expedient to delay the final test of such Columbia
cars destined for Immediate shipment In final
tests a good rate of speed Is essential and the mud
thrown or spattered upon the highly finished sur
faces has a disastrous effect.
If the Intentions of private owners may be count
ed on, Columbia cars will figure prominently In the
motoring events on the I*o7 calendar. Two Colum
bia* are already entered for the American Gold
Cup tour and assurances are given that at least
four of these ears will participate In the OUddan
tour. Charles F. Barrett, who finished the tour
last year with a perfect soore la a f ••horsepower
Columbia, Is undecided whether he will enter the
GUdden tour or the European event.
Mr. Vanning, manager of the Haynes Automobile
Company, considers that In some respects) the entry
of the Haynes In the last Vanderbilt Cup raw Is
proving a Croat eoonemy to the company. In
every city, especially In New York, challenges are
flying around thick and fast for oompotluve en
