the closing at 11 o'clock last night, a steady
*:.e*ai of --persons .could be seen entering
th* building.
The following remark of a visitor, -who
•toCaS in ttnm of the booths with a friend
carefully examining a car, was overheard:
"When 1 left home to-day. I Intended to
make thirty New Year's calls. I thought I
would ran in h#re first. Here I have been
going along the line looking over one car
after the father and have not seen them all
yet. I am afraid that when I have taken
the entire show in it will be near the cloa

One oif the -ales-men remarked after a

AUTOSHOWREGORDS
SPACE if A El) To (;kt.
Remarkable Grmcih in the
Number of Exhibitors.
By R. E. Oid«. Chairman. Show Committee.
A M. C. M. A.
Foremost in the minds of manufacturers,
dealers and automobile owners of to-day,
as well as those who liavc a leaning motor
ward and are likely to be owners in the
future, is the mammoth show which opened
on Friday evening in the Grand Central
Palace.
Everything that could •.->« done to mate?
this exhibition a record breaker has been
striven for by the sho-ar committee, and
when the public looked upon the grand
array of exhibits and the superb decora
tions, there was no question that it met
with approval.
Eight months of time and energy, thou
sands of dollars and a great amount of
detail work were necessary to give th«» cars
and accessories their rightful setting.
Three months before the opening every
available square foot of floor space was
sold, and there was a waiting list, with
each delinquent applicant hoping that some
one ■would withdraw at the eleventh hour.
•Much credit is due to the- untiring efMrt3
of my associates on the show committee,
and no better or harder working congrega
tion ever labored for the success of a
motor car show than H. O. Smith,
last year's chairman, and now chairman
of the committee of management; Ben
jamin Briscoe, S. 11. Mora. D. J. Post,
representing the motor and accessory
manufacturers?; E. R. Hollander, represent
ing the Importers' Automobile Salon, and
general manager Alfred Reeves.
At no previous time In the history of au
tomobile shows has there been such an
overwhelming 1 demand for space as there
was this year. It would have been an easy
matter to have sold from 35.000 to SO.OOO ad
ditional square feet of exhibition space. It
>vas necessary for the show committee to cut
down the space generally used for the ex
ecutive offices and press rooms, to let in a
few extra exhibitors. As a matter of fact,
no building in New York, and that means
in the United States, Is large enough to ac
commodate the. products of all the car
builders who wish to display their models.
This year, in the- Palace show, practically
every • exhibitor is restricted to smaller
quarters with his latest models than he
would occupy were space unlimited, and
the matter of space has become a difficult
problem to solve.
It seems to be almost the universal derire
on the part of motor car makers to cater
to the demand for medium powered and
moderate priced cars for the man wnosc
moii'v is limited. Anothrr striking feature
Is the general effort to attain refinement
In detail for the already laudable products
of other years. The ungraceful automobile
of a few years ego has disappeared, an>l In
its place has come the beautifully propor
tioned creations', in marked contrast to
those exhibited at the first motor car show.
The growth of automobile shows, like the
automobile itself, reads like a fairy tale,
and to those pioneers who can vivi.Jly re
call the first show held in this country it
is hardly credible that the Industry lias
grown with such bounds and leaps.
To the outsider who is not connected
directly with the automobile industry, it
is a matter cf wonderment as to what
has caused the automobile show to
have such a strong hold upon the pub
lic and to act as ouch a drawing card tc
all classes, whether it be the class that
purchases automobiles or that class which
attends an automobile show from curiosity
alone.
Manufacturers who exhibit meet practi
cally every dealer who goes to the show
from the most distant points of the coun
try. Dealers meet the buying public, make
new acquaintances and secure the names
and addresses of those who are really in
terested and intend to purchase. All this
can be done In no other way at so small
a cost. Many people lured to the auto
mobile show by the superb decorations,
good music and exhibits of highly polished
chassis and luxurious new models catch
the enthusiasm while there, and either pur
chase a car or go away with a resolution.
made that they will purchase in the near
future.
In November. 1900, the Automobile Club
of America launched the first exhibi
tion in Madison Square Garden with sixty
nine exhibitors. On December 2, 1001. the
second show opened •with ninety-two ex
hibitors. There was no show in 1902, but

Keen Struggle Promised Among Five Clubs for
Amateur League Championship.
With the prestige of having won a vie- I
tory over the champion college team of Can- I
ads, the St. Nicholas Skating Club's seven
will open the regular American Amateur j
Hockey League championship season on !
Tuesday night at. the St. Nicholas Ring !
with a team composed of the best players '
in the Hockey Club of New York as oppo
nents. The hockey season has already had
an informal opening In the shape, of several
exhibition sanies between senior "varsity .
teams and Canadian amateurs, and the I
crowds which have turned out to see those
contests indicate an increasing interest in
this greatest of all winter sports. An
equality in playing strength of the fiv« I
teams engaged' precludes tlie likelihood of
on--- strong organization running away with
the cup, as the New York Athletic Club did
■a. year ago. Changes will he effected in the
line-up of nil the teams, and the acquisition
of experienced players from Canada, the !
graduated 'varsity experts, will materially
Strengthen the weaker organizations and In
troduce an element of uncertainty.
All the teams in the 'eagre have been
practising steadily since Thanksgiving Day.
The fact that they are in condition to play
lively games was shown when the St. Nicks
beat the Canuck collegians so decisively, as
wen" as in the way other teams of the league
successively defeated the Princeton, Yale
and Harvard sevens in practice matches.
The New York Athletic Club will again
have the services of Captain Castleman,
who made his reappearance last week inftheH
match" with the Toronto 'varsity players
and distinguished himself by scoring tho
only goal for his side. The most prominent j
absentee from the line-up this season will
OS Jimmy Shirreff. and that the lack of '
his services will be a distinct less goes
without saving. Shirreff has declared his in
tention of remaining out of the game this
season, but influences are at work to in
duce him to rejoin the Crescent Athletic
Club. ShirrefTa place on the New York
team will be taken by W. IL Clark, a for
mer Toronto University 'player, with a.
'reputation as a defence man. He will re
place Broadfoot at point, the latter going
to coyer point. Rankin. another Canadian
university man, who graduated last year,
is a candidate for a place on the team, and.
Rfemund. one of the crack players of the
Hockey Club last season, will this year
"wear the Mercury Foot on the forward line.
Ooolican and Dennishaw on the wings, with.
Mills In the cage, will complete as formi
dable an aggregation of hockeyists as New
York has ever seen. . . „
The St. Nick team has a squad of thirty
men recruited from the Harvard. Yale and
Princeton 'varsity teams to draw from,
but th« old standbys, Kay Gordon. Chris
Souther, Lamed, Putnam, Chew and Rich
ards, have been playing so well that there
is little likelihood of* any change being
made, with the exception of Pell, who
played last season on the team which won
the Intercollegiate championship for Har
vard. Feitner and Buster Hay ward will j
alternate in the cage. Feitner. in the Brat i
half of the recent game with Queens Col- |
lege, stopped twenty-two shots at goal
which came at him with the speed of bul

The uncertain quantity in this year's
Amateur League struggle will be the Wan
derers team, with' its equipment of crack
Canadian experts. Everybody who has seen
the Cleghorn brothers and Cooper Smeaton
in practice has predicted a glorious victory
for the team in the cup aerie*. Ernie
DuFresno will captain the team and play
point. with sjomerton at cover point and the
Cleghorns on the wings, with Bulger on the
forward line, and Garon. of last year's
team, in the middle. Frank Ellison, the
veteran player, has been recruited from the
Hockey Club and will play his usual posi
tion between the sticks. ,;^:;
The Crescent Athletic Club has not given
up hop*-, of having Shirreff come out. and if
be does it is said that he will bring with
him Dobby. Wall. Liftiton. Blake and
Hardy, who won the championship for the
"New -Mooners" two years ago. A new
man on the team will be Mclntye, a To
ronto player, who made a favorable repu
tation here last season when his team
played with the All New York, seven.
The Hockey Club of Now York team is
the only weak spot in the league, but Cap
tain Billy Russell tells everybody that
he has a surprise up his sleeve which may
make his team a factor in the race after
all.
Following close upon the opening of the.
Amateur . Hockey League season, Prince
ton and Cornell Mill start tho puck moving
in the intercollegiate series. This game will
take place on Wednesday night, and on
Friday night the Wanderers and New York

RANKING IN FAVOR
CRITHS NOW SILENT.
Lawn Tennis Players Approve
Official Bating.
Lawn tennis players. have in the past so
freely, and often violently, criticised the
findings of the national ranking committee
that their more general favorable accept
ance of the list that was issued last Thurs
day is regarded as an indication of an im
provement In the official circles •-( the
sport. More than anything else :; has di
rected attention to Dr. P. B. Hawk, <■•; th«
University of Illinois, whose earnest, pains
taking work in the interests of the gams
has earned for him the appreciation and
gratitude of players and .'■«.- who
have long sought for a betterment of its
governing conditions. The ••widespread ap
preciation of the recently issued list. is all
the more keen an the heated controversy
engaged, in between Clarence Hobart and
A. L. Hoskins, chairman of the rank
ing committee two years ago. and th»
nearness to a seaiadal a few years previous
had made it evident that a. good rating was
dependent upon friends at court when the
executive committee reviewed ; the list.
No one was more pleased with the recep
tion of the list by the players than was
Dr. Hawk, who has been in this city all
of the last week. fn MseosSJasj the find
ings he was rea fly to give much of the
credit to his associates. Eeals C Wright.
former national champion, and C. Frederick
Watson, jr., the Orange club expert. Both
Dr. Hawk and Watson tod served on the
committee before, while it wa3 the first ex
perience of Wright.
" One of the greatest difficulties that yearly
besets the committee, according to Dr.
Hawk, is the securing of records of th»?
various players throughout the country.
'.Many of the officially sanctioned champion
ships and tournaments are never recorded,
or only partly reported. Then the country
is so large that only relatively may players
of one section be compared to those of an
other, as the Eastern experts seldom jour
ney West or the West toward the East.
It is only, as was the case last season,
when Maurice E. McLoughlin and Melville
H. Long. Thomas C. Bundy and th« Texan.
Harvey M. MacQuiston, took a whirl at
Newport, that it affords a glimpse of the
real status of the men.
In the estimation of Dr. Hawk" it was
the trouble experienced :n securing records
that had produced small lists in previous
years. He stands unqualifiedly for making
th* list as long aa possible, rating every
player who has competed in a number of
the championship and open tournaments.
This he declares Is an Incentive and an
encouragement toward a better and higher
standard of play, a comprehensive list
will ah : result in arousing in the players
the propert spirit toward their favorite
sport, ,«o that the work of future ranking
committees will be made easy, as the play
ers will need no urging to send in their
season's record?, but will regard it as a
part of the game. .
That the top of the list created some
surprise because of the placing of the men
Dr. Hawk was ready to admit, and yet he
was capable of substantiating the position
of each man. As to William Aymar
Lamed, the five times national charnnjon.
and his challenger. William J. Clothier,
there was no question. Wallace F. John
son's position ov?r a number of other?,
however, seemed in some quarters like
waving a red fla? at an angry bull. Yet
in som-* ways the brilliant performances
of the University of Pennsylvania players
surpars the work of either Lamed or
Clothier. Johnson won seven of the eleven
tournaments in which ■ he playedSouth
amptun. Middle States. Western New York
and the intercollegiate championship being
of the highest class. He won from such
men as Raymond D. Little, Melville H.
Long. Nathaniel W. Niles, Edward P.
Lamed and Frederick C. Inman. He lost
to Karl 11. Behr and by a fluke to Little,
and the samp appeared true of his Newport
match against Frederick C. Colston. There
was nothing on the whole list that ap
proached the performances of Johnson, so
that his position of third was ably earned.
Johnson ia .1 young plajvr who has shown
steady improvement, tor he was ninth la--t
year, eighteenth in 1007 and twentieth in
1906.
The position of Ni!es as fourth on the
list was duo to th^ fact that he has uni
formly defeated high class men and lost
to poor ones. His defeat of Little in the
Seabright tournament clinched his place,
especially as he also won from Edward P.
Lamed. Bchr. Le Roy and Touchard. In
a measure Little is pla:td upon the same
basis, for be did not play at Newport, yet
he won the New York State championship,
defeating such men as Long. Le Roy,
Bundy and Touchard. At Englewood Lit
tle lost to Behr. at the Middle States to
Johnson, to Miles in the semi-final at Sea
bright and to Clothier in the semi-flnal at
Lonswood.
The positions of the two California; > Me-
Loughlin and Long, respectively sixth anil
seventh on the list, was explained on their
relative showing at Newport in the all
comers, in which McLoughlin defeated Lens
in five acts, and their positions above Karl
H. Behr. Edward P. Lamed and Robert Le
Roy by the fact that both had defeated men
of higher calibre in their other tournament
matches.
It 'va« developed that only the placing of
one man on the entire list as submitted was
changed by the executive committee, and
that player was the regimental ar.-l Lon;?
Inland champion, William B Craadß, jr. tin
had been placed htane* than the thirty-ftr^t
number, yet the fa.-t that h«* lost to Charles
X Bull, jr.. of the Crescent Athletic Clufc,
In the vnetropolirrin cl!ampior..-hip. n
in hi;: dropping to one place behind that
player.
As to the absentees. Dr. Raws said that
Frederick G. Anderson, who figured so
prominently a few years ago. had dropped
out of sight, only playing faa »ne tourna
ment, and that not of any promiateAce. The
same was true of Edward B. DewHarst, the
former I'niver.^ity of Pcnn -yivania player
whe had been compeiie'l t-> retire because
of blood poisoning, while Clarence Hobart
seemed to have ahawnssd iiim-^eif because ef

AUTO NEWS AND NOTES.
Dr. Berime!, chief sanitary inspector of
the Department of Health, is now operat
ing a 1310 Lozier Briarcliff model toy ton
neau in his inspection work throughout
the city.
It has been d^lared at times that tour
ing cars operated by city officials have*
been used for private purpose*, and th«
adoption by Dr. Bensel of a runabout
model for municipal service in place of a
touring car is a step in the direction
which will do much to put an end to
charges of this kind.
The 1310 Pope Hartford cars will occupy
a large space at the Garden show.
Among the many mechanical features is
the new oiling system. The principal
parts of this are a mechanical oiler, which
has in addition to its regular purr.;-* .
large suction pump and an overflow stand
pipe, the crank case proper, with ita splaa^
feed oil supply, and an oil reservoir
underneath and ca-'t Integral with the
crank case. By this system a fixed level
of oil is obtained in the crank case, a
proper supply in the mechanical oiler, and
a regular and automatic feeding- of til
trated oil to the places to be lubricated.
One tilling of the system will servo for
neariy 2*l miles.
