Talks About Racing Here and
and at Juarez, Mexico.
.Tame? Butler, president of the Empire
City Racing Association, arrived home
yesterday from El Paso, Tex., where he
went to visit the new racecourse at Juarez.
Mexico, in which he is Interested. In speak
ing of his trip and the racing in Mexico,
Mr. Butler said:
"Racing in Mexico, particularly In Juarez,
has come to stay. We started at Juarez
the first of last December with many ob
stacles to overcome, but the new track,
which is one of the finest in North Amer
ica, is actually paying expenses. Matt
Winn. .7. G. Pollansbee, W. H. Kraft.
Seftor Terrazas and other gentlemen with
whom I became associated In this venture
deserve prai.«.» for the way they have
toiled to make Juarez racing successful.
"It was something of an undertaking
to start out with a sport new to the Mexi
cans and citizens of El Paso, but Winn
and his friends went ahead and built a
wonderful track. The turf was at first
heavy and fast time was out of the ques
tion, but the track Improved so rapidly
that only the other day a mile was run in
1:39 and a fraction. There are nearly six
hundred horses staUed at Juarez, and their
owners and trail are a happy lot. They
did ]]• ■ expect such favorable conditions
when they went there, but now that the
permanency of the venture is assured they
are very enthusiastic.
"While it cost several hundreds of thou
sands of dollars to get the plant in ship
shape condition for racing, it was neces
sary to complete the clubhouse and other
buildings, so we subscribed $300,000 more
to carry out these plans. The present
meeting will extend until well Into March,
and next winter we will begin another long
session under more favorable auspices. The
trolley road has only just been carried to
the gates of the track and new cars have
been put on. so that for a nickel you can
go from the heart of El Paso to the grand
stand in twenty minutes. This is going
to help a lot during the rest of the pres
ent meeting.

came to ■ Successful end at 11 o'clock last
night. Streets ankle deep in slush failed
to prevent thousands from having a last
look at the cars. Throughout tho after
noon a good sized crowd was in attendance.
which grew greater in the evening, so t'lat
full breathing space was at a premium.
It was estimated by the management thai
one hundred and en thousand persons had
paid admission since the show opened, a
week ago last evening— a new attendance
record. It was plain that blizzards, rain,
sleet and hail had no terrors for lovers of
the automobile, as this fine assortment of
weather gcods was generously provided In
the last few days.
The plan of Inviting outside dealers to
become guohts of the management upon
presentation of proper credentials turned
out well Twelve hundred agents took ad
vantage of the offer, according to the
registration bock.
The show \as not only a success ?o far
as attendance goes, but from a business
point as well. Knough sal^s were reported
to briiiK the Brand total up -to something
over |
Hardly had the band played "Auld I.anc;
Syne," which meant that the show was at
an end. than the exhibitors began packing

their goods transferred to Madison Square

In speaking of the left hand drive used
on his <;»rs h^ said:
"We think we have gauged the demand
accurately In adopting the left hand drive,
one day of sleet, slush and ice such as
Wednesday should satisfy any one that the
new method is l>ound to become practically
universal before Ions;. The local ordinances
in nearly ali states reouire vehicles not

Is n^xt tc the curb. With the levers
and the tire trunk on the left or inner side
of the car. the occupants of the front seat
may step directly upon the sidewalk. Not
so with the ri^ht hand drive. With It the
passf-ncers must either climb over the
lever? to get to the sidewalk or else aliuht
at tbe left side of the car, in the dirt, mud,
snow, slush or ice. and then wade to the
sidewalk by way i^f the front or rear of
the car. There are important points of
safety, comfort, economy and efficiency
that also favor tne new method."

Brush Runabout Wins Prize in
"Little (Hidden' Tour.
Officials of the Brush Runabout Company
were elated yesterday at the Palace chow

by D. W. \ Kemp, against the twenty-four
other. can, ranging in price from $1,500 to
55.000. • ',
This tour was dubbed the 'kittle GUd
den." because the flx-hundred-rrole Journey
was made over roads the conditiosi of which
rivalled If it did not surpass, the miserable
trail which the GUtldenltea were forced to
follow. The contest rules were more se
vere than any over imposed in such ■ fixt
ure, and all of the can competed on an
even basis, under sanction from the na
tional governing body.
The Brush easily won in the class for
mnabouts, receivlr»s: the Gregg trophy, and
in the open event ! finished with a perfect
road .and technical score.

Former Controller's Report
Urges Bronx River Parkzzay.
Madison Grant, president of the Bronx
River Parkway Commission, appointed by
Governor Hog to preserve the waters
of the Bronx River from pollution and to
create reservations on both sides of the
river, said yesterday that ex-Controller
Metz had made a report strongly in favor
of an appropriation to enable the commis
sioners to begin their work and that the
matter would come before the new Board
of Estimate at its meeting on Friday.
Speaking of the report Mr. Grant said
"I am informed that Mr. Brown's report
was signed by Mr. Metz and forwarded
with a letter to the Board of Estimate.
This action, however, was taken M late
that it could r.ot come up last year, but
will, as it really should, come before the
new Board of Estimate."
In the report Mr. Metz say?:
"It Is most Important, in my opinion, that
this matter should be taken up at Ib©
present time because property can be much
more cheaply acquired now than it can hi
the near future, and what -would cost
ST.OCO.OOO or $S,iVW).o» at some time in the
future could probably be covered to-day
with an expanse, spread over a number of
year.-. of half the amount.
"A number of persons have a.?reed to.
prive to the city the fee of their land and a
number of others would undoubtedly do so
as soon as it can be determined how much
of their land the city desires to take.
"I recommend- to the Board of Estimate
an appropriation of $26,250 toward the cost
and expenses of the official work ■■ I the
preparation of surveys, that amount beins
the city's share of total to be ap
propriated for the >ear 1910."
