TIMELY AUTO TOPICS.
Pr //. BRITIGAS TO SPEAK. Demonstration of Club Dynamom eter To Be Given. William 11. Britigan. educational director of the West Side Young Men's Christian Association, will trll of the work done at the Young Men's Christian Association automobile school at the meeting of the Automobile Club of America at the clubhouse on Tuesday evening. The technical committee of the , Automobile Club, of which Dr. Schuyier Skaats ' WbeeW is chairman, has completed the installa tion cf the club dynamometer, to test the horse power, speed and hill climbing abilities of all forms of motor cars, and has arranged for a private dem onstration of the dynamometer for the benefit of the daily and technical press, to be given at the Clubhouse to-morrow afternoon. If ever an endurance run was calculated to test the staying powers of an automobile it was the one hold under the auspices of the Quaker City Motor Club from PWladelphia to AUentown and return. Of the many commendable performances in this run that of the Studeboker. driven by Frank Verger. rtands cut prominently. The 30-horsepower Stude bakfr entered by the Philadelphia branch of the Ftudobaker Automobile Company completed the run •without a single point charged against it. As ■ matter of fact, it was the only gasolene touring car that fuct**»ded in completing this contest without bfing penalized. A J. Kirn?, manager of the Philadelphia branch. ir. Freaking of the run said : -The conditions of the contest were as severe as I have ever come across In my experience, and the fact that this car came through with a perfect ECir* speaks volumes for its staying qualities. Th«s roads were abominable throughout the entire jour ney, and the many water breaks for tvhich nn- Fylvanta is famous made speed very difficult. we «xp*n»nced no trouble, however, during the entire distance.** • An Interesting point that ante discussed in connec tion with this run was whether or not the shock alv er.rhfr 5.« a part of the car.

Is naturally of in terest to every driver of an automobile. Professor liuttcn has said that "th« Dow tube has solved the tire profcier.l." Tha,t is a strong statement coming from the president of the Socie:y of Mechanical Engineers. It is a fact, nevertheless. The Dow tube has revolutionized the tire industry. At the importers' salon sixteen different makes of automobiles were exhibited— Europe's best pro ductions. Thirteen were using for their Ignition system the Bosch magneto. This moans that SI per cent of all exhibiting cars us>ed this standard ignition system. In the Olyropia Automobile Ex hibition in London SO per cent of the exhibiting cars w«re equipped wttii Bosch magnetos. The ila:vn of the new yrar practically sees the d:sapj-rar2noe of the bargain hunter, or "I'll «ake it at my price" purchaser, who came into existence en the crest of the recent ilurry. says a member of th<» Harry 5. Houpt Company, distributers for tho Thomas lino. And this is true. too. for inquiry emong the leadinc dealers shews that there was no rtascn for th-? agitation which made the enterprise of the "cut rate" purchaser profitable for a time. At this season of the year and two months or so previously there nev«=r has betn what might be ctElcna-od as a '"lan>i cSice business," and all in terested are fully awake to their error. The scare lias had a salutary effect, however, and helped to cl»*ar tlie atmosphere, as far as many concerns were concerned. The Houpt company, one of the Oldest and strongest in the Eastern territory, was cue of. the first to discourage the annihilator of prices, and it has reaped the harvest of its wisdom. oftentigaea inter- W'al: strer-t, pur :. April, 1907, I - - : Bea with an ex •Vhen Mmford re . c h<> turned the car in " . f N« aj York, for a gen • - .-tatc-d it as his belief that there was nothing to be done to it. A minor adjustment was all the repairing really needed and the car was on the road in a. day. The record is considered remarkable by E. W. Headington, man ager of the New York branch of the Haynes comp any. Challenges which have been hurled of late at the Fiat, winner of the latest of the many twenty-four boor races held during l? 07, have been accepted in formally, but not the less earnestly, by K. Rand Hollander, ©f the Fiat Automobile Company, of JCew York, employer of Emanuel Cedrino, who won the .last s«rics of twenty-four contests. Cedrino proposes a race to take place on the Grmond- Ltaytona beach the week following the regular races and to be run four hours daily, the cars to fc«; j>*ao«-d in control each night. In a sportsman like way Mr. Hollander lias proposed opening the race to winners of second places in the various con tests and to add to the ttat of entrants the winners of the Milwaukee, txie Chicago and the St. Louis races. J. S. Gllmor. ol Santiago de Chili, reports that tha four X-I-V and the two Model X Wintous in xi&e In that city "are giving the best of satisfac tion. ar.d are all in perfect running condition. This Is especially gratifying," he adds, "as the roads are atwniinafcle, the grades being rocky and steep. The Wintons rt-adily negotiate hills where French tirs fit left." Engineers of the H. H. Franklin Manufacturing Company are busy with experiments on the use of alcohol as a substitute fuel for gasolene. The testa so far made show that under the normal working conditions of a gasolene engine alcohol is cot nearly M economical as gasolene. It has Lex-n shown/ with the : uee of alcohol that with a compression of eighty pounds an efficiency of t7J prr cent has been secured, whercw with only sixty pounds compression Vi ocr cent efficiency is at tained in the case of Ig|lWlt Alcohol is a slow Luruins fuel and the heat required to vaporize it property is equivalent bo about 10 per cent of the total fuel, while gasolene vaporizes without «x ternal aid. it is true, however, that the heat re quired to valorize alcohol is not wasted in the ca>» of the Franklin, as the auxiliary exhaust is used to heat the passages to the carburetor. ' thr- lig run of business which the Dragon com paav is now beginning to feel," *•»>» P. C Kelßcy. fe»*r&l manager of the company, "cannot be in Htfte cr the so-called bard times, because, bems la tt il|i 1|T _ Mas* •b-ixJi »-*"» u-~d* in *fiii*rjJ. 1 axa in • position to know that other manufacturers are feeling the p;i:ti^ pradua! return of business. This financial "panic" was nothing more than a tem porary stringency which seems to have affr.-tod public confidence merely to the extent of making the buyer watch and wait for a time. The ban ning of the r.pw y^ar 1908 has opened very fa vorably for my company and I have contracts on hand which it will taKe me months to fill for taxi cabs and other models of the Dragon car." This statement was plven out yesterday at the R. M. Owen Company: "Pursuant to the well defined policy which we laid out and announced earlier in the season, and anticipating: an increasing demand for Reo cars during November and December, the Keo Motor Car Company has been build'ng cars without any halt or embarrassment whatsoever. We notified our agents in advance of our inten tions, and they in turn, confident that they could rely on prompt deliveries, have been steadily order ing cars, as a result of which our November and December deliveries have been much larger than in any previous year. If this policy proved successful during November and December we see no reason why it should not work out as favorably during: the remainder of this season." "It is really amusing when I hear these pessi mistic rumors regarding the lessening of automo bile sales." said Benjamin Bnseoe, chairman of the committee cf management of the American Motor Car Manufactu-ers' Association. "I pre sume these rumors are started by some irrespon sible salesmen who have a few dollars temporarily tied up in some small banking institution and be cause a few orders for automobiles havo been cancelled. I have yet to see the time when more or less orders have not bef-n cancelled. Any sane and broad minded individual who has studied the situation knows that automobiles will always be sold. They have become a necessity not entirely a pleasure. It has reached a stage when the public cannot do without them. Especially is this true in the commercial line. M»tor trucks and d^livery wajrons cannot be turned out fast enough to meet the demand. '' BIG HELP TO MOTORISTS. Automobile Club Will Publish List of Hotels All Over the Count The Automobile Club of America, which stands foremost in everything to Further the Interests of the automobile owners and is the only organi zation in thjs country to maintain a touring de partment worthy of the name, has taken another Important step in the interest of the automobile tourist, a step along the lino of that pursued by the representative national foreign clubs. .. • The .club through its bureau of tours erected some 1.400 direction and danger signs during 1907, issued numerous route cards and new maps, and in general did a great amount of work . for the benefit of the motorists. It ■is now proposed to issue a list Of 'commendable hotels and garages on touring routes. Any hotel or garage which has first class accommodations, and where the treat ment accorded the travelling motorist, justifies it, may. after its application is. favorably passed upon by a special committee, receive an official appointment of the club, which appointment en titles the holder to display a specially designed sign furnished by the club and Which bears" tho club name and emblem. An annual fee, graded by the room capacity of the appointee, will be charged. In adopting this plan of officially approving of hotels and garages it is felt that those who avail themselves of this privilege would not only di rectly benefit in obtaining the patronage of the members cf the ciub ;m<l tiie touring public at large, but would Indirectly, by thus contributing to the expenses of the bureau of tours, advance the interests of the touring public. It can be well ■nderatood that it coats a large sum of money to maintain an organization such as there is in this club, and that the issuing of route cards, maps, bulletins and official books, which, of" course, will contain tbe names of the officially approved gar ages and hot»is, and the placing of signposts and danger signs, require a large amount of work at considerable expense ' The development of tour ing routes and the information necessary for the cards and maps places upon the club every year a large increase of expense, and it is felt that in this development those who are interested in ex tending the sphere would be glad to contribute. GUNNERS BRAVE STORM. C. W. Billings Makes Remarkable Score, Despite the Weather. In the face of a young hurricane that swept in off L«ong Island Sound five gunners of the New York Athletic Club stood nr the Travers Island traps and hi Band away a: dying blue rocks yes terday, it Bras a miserable day for the sport. Not only diii the wind whirl the tars'-ts in every di rection, but the Kramers, in oilskins and BOW'west ers. shivered in its icy breath. To add to the gen erai discomfort snow and rain fell throughout the entire afternoon, making the day the dm Ik Bit f 1 r ghi ating t'nat the Mercury Foot gunnf-rs have experienced this season. It was not to be expected that the marksmen would return high scores. C. W. Killings was the exception, however. Mr. Hillings shot from scratch and twice broke 23 out of a possible 25. The work ■was splendid, as the score would have been good under far easier conditions. In the Jan uary cup Mr. Billings tied with J. .1. O'Donohue for the leg. The shoot wad at SO targets, and each gunner had a card of 39 "birds'" to his credit A shoot-off was in order and in it Mr. Billings made his iirst r'ir.

BANNER YEAR IN GOLF NO LACK OF ACTIVITY. Resume of a Season Full of Many Good Tourneys. The year 1907 will live long In the .memory of golfers the world over, but more especially In this country There was exceptional activity in a competitive way. and the first definite step was taken on the part of the United States Golf Asso ciation toward greater recognition *of that large Western territory. The recognition referred to was the yielding of the parent body to a petition from the West to have the 1907 annual meeting held in Chicago instead of New York. It was the first time in the history of American golf that the annual session has been held outside of this city. In future the meeting will be held every third year In Chicago. It was also early in the year that the crusade against the old code of. rules reached formidable rtions— so formidable, in fact, that even the conservative St. Andrews committee was stirred into action. While nothing radical may appear in the revised coite which is to appear in the spring, any changes, no matter how moderate, will be regarded as a step in the right direction in an earnest endeavor to keep pace with the times. Early in the year and at a time when many of the Northern courses were snowbound, the devotees of the sport turned their attention to Florida and other resort centres below the Mason arid Dixon line. An unusual gathering of amateurs and pro fessionals at Palm Beach the latter part of Feb ruary resulted in that place receiving more than passing notice. The competitive attractions were the South Florida championships. Harris B. Fenn, of Apawamis. won the -amateur title, defeating Walter Fairbanks, the Denver veteran, in the final round by 3 up and 2 to play. Over the same course Alec Smith, of Nassau, won the open title with a 36-hole score of 66—67—133.- Willie Anderson, the second man, had a score of 137. It is worthy of mention that Harold Sands again won the Southern Cross cup at the twelfth annual tournament of the Palmetto Golf Club at Aiken. He defeated Robert C. Watson, jr., of Westbrook. in the final round. This made the fifth consecutive victory for Sands. In the open championship tour nament of North Florida Anderson easily carried off first honors at St. Augustine with a score of 138 for thirty-six holes. Gilbert Nicbolls. his next nearest opponent, had 151. Miss Mary B. Adams, of Boston, made an early start of what proved to be her most successful season by winning the United North and South championship tournament for women at Pinehurst. She defeated Miss Julia R. Mix, of Englewood. in the final round. A couple of months later Miss Adams figured as one of the principals in what was probably the. most remarkable playoff of a tie ever recorded in this country. Reference is made to the deadlock for first place in the cham pionship tournament of the Women's Eastern Golf Association at the Country Club of Atlantic City between Miss Adams and Miss Fanny C. Osgood. The championship proper consisted of thirty-six holes medal play, which resulted in these players tieing at 189. In an endeavor to settle this tie with an extra eighteen hole round. Miss Adams and Miss Osgood again broke ' even at 94. Another round followed the next day with the understand ing that should they tie again they would have to keep on until one or the other had earned a lead. Oddly enough, they were again all square at the end of the eighteen holes but Miss Adams finally wen on the twentieth green in a match that alto gether required seventy-four holes to. decide. But to return to Pinehurst. Shortly after Miss Adams recorded her success there the North and South tournament for men was settled over the same course. Although Fred. Herreshoff, of this city, led the field in the qualifying round, he met defeat at match play, as did Warren K. Wood, the previous winner: Allan Lord, of Washington, won, defeating Nathaniel Moore in the final round. . Before leaving Pinehurst, however. HerreshofC won a tournament, and followed this up by winning in rapid succession at Virginia Hot Springs, Lake wood. Atlantic City and Huntingdon Valley. Three chief cups at the Ekwanok Country- Club also re warded his efforts during the summer. Altogether the Garden City representative put in a remark ably successful season and one rarely duplicated among amateurs on either side of the water. The bright particular star of the season was Jerome D. Travers, of Montclalr. To win the na tional title is, of course, an enviable achievement, in itself, but on this . — asion it came as a fitting climax to a scries of successes, including the win ning of the metropolitan and New Jersey champion ships. Although this was Travcrs's first national triumph, golfers the country over conceded that the mantle had fallen in the right place. An innovation during the summer was the Cana dian Invasion by a number of amateurs, led by A. W. Tlllinghast. of Philadelphia. The visitors won all the team matches, and one of their number, A. W. Cockran, of Princeton, carried off the honors in the open tournament iKld at the Lambton Golf and Country Club. While there was nothing of an offi cial nature in these international contests, they dH much toward strengthening the friendly relations between the golfers of the two countries. Across the border they are especially keen for a resump tion of the international team matches between the governing body in Canada and the Catted States Golf Association. The tri-city "ont"st at Brookline will go down in history as memorable becau.se it marked the substi tution of the foursomes for the four-bail matches. The impressive victory of the metropolitan team furnished another striking illustration of the ex ceptional strength of the golfers in this vicinity. The women's national tournament, held in the West, furnished the unusual spectacle of two sisters contending- as finalists. Miss Margaret Curtis, who dethroned her sister Harriet as queen of the links, had never before reached the goal of her ambition, although she had twice been runner-up. The national open championship tournament at the Philadelphia Cricket Club proved fruitful Cor the Eastern professionals, and correspondingly bar ren for the Western entrants. Alec Ross, Gil be i*. Nicholls and "Kipper" Campbell, who finished first, second and third, respectively, were all from the Boston MCttaa. This was Ross's first victory for the national title. LIGHT BALKS, LAWN TENNIS PLAYERS. William B. Cragin, jr., got only two sets against his brother, Calhoun. for the singles championship in lawn tennis of the 7th Regiment yesterday on the board courts of the armorj, €Cth street and Park avenue. Their match was begun at noon, but the light was so poor that after two trying sets both v *-re ready to discontinue. The Class A handicap singles was brought up to the final round. This was accomplished by the matt in which Robert T. Bryan, the singles cham pion of 1907, handicapped at minus 30, defeated L. li. Fitch, minus 13, in -the semi-final round in straight sets. With this victory, the' only com pleted match of th« day because of the dim light which made l'-il tennis impossible. Bryan is to fact William B. Cragin, jr.. on even terms for the handicap. SUNDAY DAY OF DEATH. TRAIN WRECKS FREQUENT Carelessness of Employes Potent Factor in Year's Accidents. Railroad wrecks and collisions on traction lines contributed heavily to the total of 35,612 killed and 22,307 injured in the principal accidents of the calendar year 1907, as chronicled in The Tribune. On the steam roads 811 persons lost their lives in wrecks of various kinds and the maimed numbered 2,639. or nearly 12 per cent of the year's total. Seventy-two met death in traction wrecks and 1,092 were injured. Figuring by days, Sunday was far above the average in swelling the list of both the killed and the injured in both classes of accidents. The records show the Sabbath's list of dead in railroad wrecks to be 151 and in traction - collisions 13, while the totals of inju%d, respectively, were 431 and 154. In | large measure this excess ' percentage was due to the running of popular excursion trains and the carelessness of employes in following explicit in structions as to running time and sidetracking is- j sued by the traffic managers especially* with a view to avoiding collisions with regular trains. " Numerous investigations during the year have j revealed a dangerous increase in such collisions due to the contributory negligence of employes- Both railroad and traction officials have co-operated heartily with the legal authorities in seeking to punish the derelict employes, and the result has been that in recent months accidents due to this cause have been greatly minimized. 'i':-\ Other causes of wrecks figuring largely in the totals include impenetrable fog, blinding snow, broken rails, open or defective switches, and the criminality of train wreckers bent upon robbery. I Organized efforts to capture and punish the wreck- J ers have been instituted and the precautions taken j against their plotting have prevented numerous j wrecks. ; Track inspectors and private detectives have performed efficient lifesavlng work along this line. The list of the principal accidents of the classes here considered, during the year, including Satur day, December 28. is as follows: RAILROAD WRECKS. Killed. Injured. Jan. I— Richmond.
