S.m Diego is attempting to renig
cu Ixt own proposition for running
the Coast to Phoenix motorcycle road
endurance race for the fall of 1914
Mi-curding to many prominent mem
Ws of local motorcycle circles.
After attempting to grab all the
gh'ry for the first race that was run
to Phoenix from' the southern expo-v:ii'-n
city, the motorcycle sharps
'vor there are wanting to change
evrythint to suit themselves in spite
-f their agreement or else drop all
onneotion with the proposition.
This ait tuition does not set very
well on the minds of the. local men
:itt they are not without hopes of
finally hriiw'ng some sort of order
lit of the chaos even if it amounts
'. compromising with San Diego on
certain matters in connection with
the race.
When the motorcycle road races
were first agreed upon, the two clubs
the cities agreed also that San
Diego should run the first one. Phoe
nix the second, anil that they should
lth be from San Diego to Phoenix.
In consideration of this the race in
lilT) was to be from Phoenix to San
Diego. Then the boys of the two
towns raised the money to conduct
the race Phoenix raising most of it
by tlie way.
Now comes the wcond race. San
l'e;o is perfectly willing to have the
race start from that: city but wants
to place the date a week ahead of
the Arizona State Fair something
that will be of no earthly use to
Phoenix and this also after the Fair
'.mission has agreed to put up
some of the money and San Diego
knows it. San Diego's answer to the
cry f unfairness that goes up from
Phoenix in face 'of this is to let
Phoenix off with a $100 subscription
and let the local hoys run every
thing. A counter proposition has been
!ent in making the proposition so j
that the race can be run to end here
fair week and to pledge San Diego j
r..r somewhat more of a purse than
Sli'O. San Diego is very much larger
than Phoenix and more able to put
up momy for an event that so well
advertises the city as does this.

The Cubs athletic club is intent upon
a football team now and the first prac

out for next Friday's workout.

A. E. Pope, the wide awake agent for
Firestone, Tires has returned from a
visit to Los Angeles during which time
he combined both business and pleas;
ure in his usual enterprising way.
While away he heard a few good ones
in connection with Firestone tires
among which he told the following:
"Not long since when Villa's men
were making an advance near El Toro,
one of the motor trucks in the main
force ran out of gasoline. A service
truck loaded with gasoline, oil, extra
tihes and a complete repair outfit was
ordered up from the rear mid refilled
the gas tank. The march was con
tinued and the service wagon then
waited for the rear guard to come up.
While the truck was thus resting in
the road between the main body and
the- rear guard, the federals, under
Colonel Coo-Coo made an attack on
the service oar from the left flank. All
the service squad had in tha way of
weapons was a sack full of Bull Dur
ham, a spy glass and a shot gun.
"Xothing daunted, Corporal Pedro
ordered the spare Firestone Tires with
their steel rims, which the service wa
gon carried, tinloaded from the truck
and placed as a barricade. Behind this
rubber and steel bulwark, Villa's men
felt safe.
"As the federals fired, the bullets re
bounded and killed Colonel Coo-Coo's
men in great numbers; the gallantr Coo
Coo himself being among the five
killed and wounded. Thus weakened,
the federals were force d to retreat.
When the rar guard came up they
found the service wagon crew enjoying
a quiet game of Monte within the con
fines of the rubber rampart."
"In view of the effect this story may
have had upon Villa, it is suggested
tl.t war correspondents look behind
every pile of Firestone Tires they come
across, considering the possibility of
finding Pancho there esconced enjoy
ing a quiet game in safety.

Complaint was filed yesterday with
the interstate commerce commission by
the Arizona corporation commission in
behalf of the California Pine Box and
Lumber company covering reparation
to the amount of $126.50 predicated on
one earload of box shooks shipped from
Williams to Clifton.
The complaint states that a rate of
$13.80 per ton was charged on the ship
ment, whereas the interstate commerce
commission has named a reasonable
schedule of rates from IVilliams and
related points to certain destinations in
Arizona, not including Clifton, and the
commission requests that reparation
be made on a basis of $S.80 per ton. The
complaint is filed against all the car
riers by whom the shipment was
moved, namely the Santa Fe, Arizona
Eastern, Southern Pacific and Arizona
and Xew Mexico railroad companies.
The Last Chance
Tonight, or not at all, local amuse
ment patrons may see the muchly dis
cussed "Soul Kiss" at the Columbia,
for a new show is underlined for the
second half of the week, and the adap
tion from the Follies is not to be re
peated. "The Soul Kiss" is as free from plot
as the average busy person could de
sire, but there are all the other quali
ties that make for an evening of pleas
ant entertainment in abreviated form.
Witty dialogue, bright repartee, tune
ful songs of recent and some not
quite so recent vintage, stirring mu
sic, bc-k-y of shapely chorus girls with
life and rythm, new costumes and
scenery, and a dash that makes for a
good show, are combined for merri
ment that makes an audience patiently
await the new attraction to follow, -
"Bobbie" Dean will come into her

lion Dollar Doll" will have a lavish
staging. Miss Dean is a prime favor

Tomorrow night the first of the
Pathe reels in which European activi
ties are shown is one of the two new
subjects to be presented prior to each
of the two nightly musical shows. Ow
ing to the large crowds, as many as can
conveniently do so, be seated by 7:80
for the first show, and the second
show will begin promptly at 9:10.
Foggs Millions
The two reel Vitagraph picture at
the Lamara today under the title of
"Foggs Millions" is one of the best VI
tagraph's that has been seen here in
many, a long day. It is a story of the
marriage of an intriguing actress to a
millionaire and what came of it. and it
is distinctively worth while. The Selig
news pictorial this week shows the
men of the animal department of the
Chicago Zoo clipping the claws of one
of the largest lions in captivity and it
j is some job. The split Lubin picture is
a side sputter for fair.
The Wilderness Mail
The Selig company played a winner
when they produced the great picture
that is the headliner at the Arizona
tonight, and which occupied a promin
ent place on the bill yesterday. It is
not often that a Phoenix audience ap
plauds a picture but the large crowd
did last night. There are two reels of
the picture, Tom Mix the intrepid cow
man and champion of the world ap
pears in the picture most prominently.
"Prosecution" is the name of a stirring
Vitagraph film, while the split Lubin
is a great laugh producer.
The Sign of the Secret Nine
This is not a baseball picture but a
story of one of the wildest bunches of
-society thieves that ever
story is told in three parts on the
screen of the Plaza theater today,
where It is a part of the six reel
feature bill. "The Yellow Streak" a
Pathe comedy, and "A South African
Whale Hunt" an Edison, together with
a comedy picture "The Dodge That
Failed" go to make up a most complete
and satisfactory bill.
Today is feature day at the Lion
theater and the program contains six
reels of interesting film, in which the
feature is a four-reel Pathe colored
production entitled "War Is Hell." It

Dear Jim:
I went 'round to that Empress
again last night, and I didn't see a
single one sorry he was there. I'd
try to tell you what I saw; 1 sure
am . "vodvil" crazy a man who
passes up that show does so because
he's lazv.
How About This
T nhin feature started the thing;
I'm talking "movies" now. You know
one time I didn't like a picture, but
somenow wnen l see one nive uuu
last night, I simply have to roar.
cause, nal. that is some picture; !
couldn't ask for nothin' more. "A j
Cross in Crime" is what its called
ji Tinnin of n storv it takes two
reels to run it through but each
scene adds to the glory that Lubin
copped off long ago; it sure did
make some hit the finish of that
story almost made me throw a fit.
Then out comes act that s number
one it's Hayter and Janet for good
clean comedy they cert'ny cop the
cne best bet. It's just a simple talk
ing team with singing on the side,
but say, they just mopped up, old
man. 1 ciappeu mi l inousm. i
just bust my hands; I am an eager
guy to give an act some good ap
plause whenever it gets by. And
listen Bud, don't ever think I was
the only one thatc lapped hands;
why, all the folks just joined right
in the fun. And when at last the
finish came that team did sure look
happy, 'cause any time they get a
hand, it makes their work more
sna ppy.
The second act is toatin' three
every one of them a winner. I
wouldn't fib to you, old man. 'cause
you know I'm no sinner. They've got
a stunt worked with the teeth a
novelty affair it starts off with a
dainty miss a-swinging in the air off
a rope that's tied 'way up some
where in the flies. I thought I'd
seen them all, but that one made me
"ope" my eyes. And then two more
came out that swelled the bunch in
all to three. Boy, they cert'ny start
ed something with that "swinging
The last act is a Glancing team
got something on them all. I haven't
seen an act as good since sometime
way last fall. They start off with
a singing dance, and boy, they are a
riot I'd like to see some of those
hams just get up there and try it.
Then, out he comes for soft shoe
work Geo. Primrose style, you know
the way he slings his feet around
just makes almost a show. Then out
she comes a-dancin' antf a-runnin'
cn her toes; th!.vay she does that
stunt I ain't found no one yet that
knows. It's just as graceful as a
bird, don't think I'm sentimental
but that dance even beats the stuff
they call the Oriental.
Well, so long boy, I've got to quit:
I'll write again next week if you
don't hear from me, old man, you'll
know I sure am meek.
(By Geo. B. Wilcox.)
The most dangerous, as well as the
most useless individual, from the
standpoint of national welfare, is the
voter who takes pride in referring to
the fact that he has always voted a
straight ticket in other words, the
yellow dog" voter.
The man who has no more interest
in the welfare of his country than
he who votes fo.- a candidate, just
because said candidate happens to be
on his ticket, is a dangerous propo
sition. He acknowledges to the world
that he does not think for himself,
and that his judgment is worth
nothing, for he is willing to place in
a position of trust any individual, no
matter how dishonest or incompetent
the candidate may be, if he has been
able through hook or crook to land
the nomination on the ticket.
If all voters allowed themselves to
be herded and influenced in this way,
a party once in power could never
be ousted, except by a revolution,
and our government" would soon be
come a farce.
Thank goodness! we have enough
broad-mindetJ men and women in
lids country, who are not controlled
in this way, who hold the balance of
power, and have independence enough
to use that power when an emer
gency arises to defeat any political
organization that has become so cor
rupt and a.-rogant that it has become
a menace to good government.
This class of voters not only inform
themselves as to the principles a
party stands for before giving it
their support, but look into the past
history of the individual candidate in
order to determine for themselves as
tc whether or not his record, and
daily life, is such as to guarantee his
sincerity in pledging himself to carry
out his party program, and his ability
to do so if elected.
The man who, in these enlightened
times, makes the boast that he would
rather vote for a yellow dog on his
party ticket, than vote for the best
man in the community whose name
appears on the opposing ticket, is
either a fool or a knave, and should
neve- be elected to public office; lie
is dangerous enough as a voter, but
as an office holder he is a menace.
The intelligent voter, now holding!
the balance of power, demands that
a party shall have an up-to-date
program, and candidates who are
able and willing to carry out that
program, before it, or they, can
count on his supoprt. This is as it
should be. The day of the "yellow
dog" voter is past.
Necessity knows no law.' and it is
usually too poor to interest a lawyer.

Picnic at Riverside
"The People's Playground"
A Good Time for a Dime
Now that the fall season is at hand, when the weather and climatic
conditions here are PERFECT FOR PICNICS and out of door gatherings,
we wish to call the attention of all the lodges, societies, churches, Sunday
schools, families and individuals of Ph;oenix and vicinity to the opportunites
and advantages Riverside Park offers for the holding of picnics, social gath
erings and entertainments for the benefit, pleasure and better acquaintance
of everyone.
Nearly all of us remember with pleasure the fall picnics of the old days
"back East," when everyone packed a basket lunch and went to the woods
for the day and had a good time out of doors. Such gatherings always
bring lodge, church and society members and their families into a close and
pleasant relationship of a more intimate nature than is possible in town.
New friends and acquaintances are made and old friends are made better
friends. It is a relief to the women and children just to get away from
home for the day and forget the household cares; the war, hard times and
business worries are forgotten by the men, and everyone has a good time
Heretofore there has been no suitable place in this vicinity for the
holding of such gatherings, but now that Riverside Park has been built at
your very doors, and thousands of dollars expended in preparing picnic
grounds, entertainments, amusements and conveniences for your pleasure and
comfort, it is possible for everyone to take advantage of the benefits offered.
Our idea in building Riverside Park was to have a People's Playground
a place where everyone could feel perfectly at home at all times to come
there and rest, recreate, swim, picnic and have a good time generally,
whether they spend a nickel or not. Of course it costs a great deal of
money to build and operate a park like Riverside, and it takes thousands
of nickels and dimes to pay the daily running expenses, and we appreciate
the loyal support and patronage we have had and must have to pay expenses,
but we wish it understood that if you can't afford to spend ary money
for the amusements offered, we want you to COME ANYWAY and look on
and take advantage of the FREE AMUSEMENTS AND ENJOYMENTS FOR
We have TWO FREE DAYS EVERY WEEK Mondays and Fridays and
on these days we extend a cordial invitation to women and childien under
fifteen to come to the Park and enjoy themselves NO ADMISSION BEING
CHARGED FOR WOMEN' AND CHILDREN on these days until 5 o'clock in
the afternoon and a special rate of fifteen cents being made to them for
make use of the picnic and playgrouTtds, see the menagerie, give the kids
a bath in the Phoenix Ocean and HAVE A GOOD TIME yourself from early
morning until as late as you want to stay. The world will seem brighter
and next day you will feel more like doing something.
Lodges, secret societies, state societies, churches, families, and all others
are invited to PK'NKi AT RIVERSIDE. For large picnics dates will be
assigned in the order of application, each one being given the date desired
as far as possible. The Park Management will always co-operate with you
in every way possible in helping you to have a good time. We are always
ready to take care of you whether notified or not. but for large picnics we
can do more if arrangements are made beforehand.
