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

Club from PWladelphia to AUentown and return.
Of the many commendable performances in this run

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

The way the crowds have flocked around the Dow
tire booth at' the importers' exhibit shows the in
terest displayed in the "non-deflation tube." A tire
tl.at win not deflate when punctured. a tire that
■will prolong the life of the outer casinc, preventing
rim cutting and overheating. 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

cars w«re equipped wttii Bosch magnetos.

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.

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

Is especially gratifying," he adds, "as the roads
are atwniinafcle, the grades being rocky and steep.
The Wintons rt-adily negotiate hills where French

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.

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.

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:
