THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 11, 1914 .
GAR 1915 FEATURE
When the "Eight" is announced,
which late issues of trade journals
have commented on, automobile history
will be given an added chapter on the
American made car.
Thus far no manufacturer of the
country has seen fit to attempt this.
The smoothness with which the ma
chine would operate, the added power,
the extreme novelty of the thing would
be one of the greatest talking points
that salesmen could offer. The possi
bility of its being a success is assured
by the already perfect working of the
six. On the probability of the season's
car the "Automobile" has the following
It is more, than possible that a new
factor has entered Into what has he
come known as the war of the cylin
ders in that the eight cylinder motor,
which up to the present has been
largely confined to the output of one
manufacturer so far as automobiles ali;
concerned, will njake its appearance on
the American continent next year.
. For several years one of the leading
French builders, De Pion-Bouton, has
built eight-cylinder machines, and now
this concern builds them in many dif
ferent models. These machines are not
untried creations, but rather designs
that have been worked out for many
years and have stood up, have proven
themselves to be equal to the require
ments. The eight-cylinder motor looks lio
an enormity when contrasted with the
six. The increase of two cylinders
seems a big addition, but when the six
is placed alongside the eight with its
cylinders mounted V fashion in two
sets of four, the eight really impresses
the motor student. It is shorter than
the six and has "a. crankshaft that riv
als the four-cylinder one in simplicity.
It is shorter than the six; In fact, due
td the "V mounting of the cylinders in
the eight and to coupling two connect
ing rods to each throw, the motor is
little longer than a four. The short
crankshaft eliminates the whipping
tendency met with in the long crank
shafts in several of the six -cylinder de
signs. The eight-cylinder motor with its
cylinders cast in twoL-head groups of
four each makes a simple manufacur
ing job in that one camshaft mounted
in the angle between the cylinder
groups in the top of the crankcase
serves for both intake and exhaust
valves for the eight-cylinders. The in
take piping is considerably simplified
as the carburetor is positioned midway
between the two cylinder groups.
Judging from the performances of
eight-cylinders now on the market the
gasoline consumption is most satisfac
tory. In fact, ' eight-cylinder motors
with an official rating between 20 and
25 horsepower have averaged from 20
to 22 miles to the gallon in regular
Whether the struggle for supremacy
which has been waged for years be
tween the four and the six will now be
transferred to the eight, or if all three
types of motors will continue in the
arena, is a question that only time will
solve. The aggression with which the
eight is taken up will prove a potent
factor. Today the public will not
launch the arguments against the eight
that were pressed against the four and
the six, namely more cylinders, more
valves, more spark plugs and more
parts to go wrong. The complications
offered by the two additional cylinders
can not be seriously considered. True,
there will be some problems of vaft'e
accessibility to deal with. The con
struction of the lower end of the con
necting rod will call for attention, b.
if the eight can prove its claim to
greater flexibility than the six, if fts
inherent merits of shorter crankshaft,
more compact design, etc. carry that
weight which they apparently should,
then it will not be surprising if three
or four years hence we find ourselves
approaching a period of eight-cylinder

A Baltimorean who has traveled a
great deal, in commenting upon the
character of some of the war extras
issued by some of the local newspapers,
said it reminded him of the way things
were done in Athens.
Some years ago he was in that city
and was amazed at the number and
frequency of the newspaper extras.
One afternoon in the hotel, when the
extras were being cried loudly, he
asked a man who was reading one what
there was in it.
'Well," said the man, "It says that
nothing has happened as yet, but if
anything does happen it says it will
get out another extra." Baltimore

Lyons Mail Robbery
The courtyard of the post office of
the Rue St. Martin was, on the 27th of
April, 179C, filled with an excitable
crowd of people, many of whom would
rush to the end of the rue and look
eagerly up the boulevard along which
the overdue mail from Brest traversed.
The highways of France at that time
were over-run by highwaymen and
robbers and the people of Paris had
been terrified by the number of
attrocious thefts which had been com
mitted. The Brest mail would change cour
iers .here and would then depart for
Lyons. Napoleon at this time was
fighting in Italy, and in reply to his
appeals for money, a valuable consign
ment of specie was to be despatched
by the government.
The government courier, Jean Excof
fon, who was making his last journey,
breathed a sigh of relief when the mail,
an important looking vehicle with three
horses, drew in safely. The courier
and postillion, Nanteau, now compared
notes and made everything safe from
any unexpected attack. One passenger
who was to travel by the mail, and
who gave his name as Laborde, was
settled inside, and the coach, with more
than 7,000,000 livres under its basket
shaped hood, clattered off in the direc
tion of Villeneuve St. Georges, where
the horses were to be changed.
As the mail pulled up, a well dressed
young man Jumped hastily on his
horse and galloped off in the direction
of Melum. Having changed horses, the
Lyon's mail moved off once more. Here
Nanteau was relieved in the saddle by
Etienne Audebert. The next morning,
a postillion of the Pouilly Mail was
amazed to see the great Lyon's Mail
standing in the road, scattered papers
and bloodstains being mute evidence
of the dastardly murder that had been
perpetrated. A further investigation
revealed the bloodstained bodies of Ex
coffon and Audebert. But nothing was
to be found of the passenger Laborde.
The story of the cajme is as follows:
Hardly had the coach with its val
uable cargo passed Lieursaint when
the figures of our mounted men ap
peared and the leader imperatively
ordered Audebert to stop. He was made
conspicuous by the smart little wig he
wore. Close beside him was a man of
foppish devil-may-care appearance.
Another, a fierce looking Provencal
and the third a crafty looking Italian.
It was now quite dark, and the Italian
striking (as he thought), at the cour
ier, Excoffon gave the other inmate,
Laborde, a nasty scratch.
"What are you doing?" angrily
shouted the latter, throwing off his
cloak: "We are here for robbery and
not for butchery."
The Provencal (Vidal by name), the
Italian Rossi, and Laborde, then fiercely
attacked Excoffon, who was, although,
he fought bravely, soon overcome. The
postillion was ordered to take the coach
down the Pouilly Road and when being
attacked put up a stubborn resistance,
his hand being found hacked In four
places. The mail was then hurriedly
rifled and the hapless bodies were
thrown, Audebert's into a spinny and
the courier's into a corn field.
The next morning the horrible dis
covery was made by the Pouilly Mail's
The foppish youth whose name was
Courriol the next day went to Paris to
return the four horses. 'This being not
ed he was traced and was arrested with
a criminal, Richards, who knew of the
robbery and had shared in the plunder.
In spite of his bad character, this man
was acquainted with many honest men,
two of whom were with' him, Joseph
Lesiirques and Guenot. They were all
Two witnesses from small Inns were
sure of the youth Courriol, but to the
surprise of everyone they also charged
Lesurques and Guenot as being two of
the four who had committed the crime.
They, however, set up an alibi to the
effect that on the 8th Lesurques had
spent two hours in the morning with a
jeweler, one Legrand and in the even
ing with Guenot and a painter. Hil
alre Ledru. But the president calling
for the entry book of the Jeweler found
that it had originally been 9th and
The president was then sure of Les
urques' guilt, and although Courriol
was persistent in his protestation . of
his own guilt and the Innocence of
Lesurques they were both, convicted.
The other two prisoners proved their
innocence. Many people testified to
the innocence of Lesurques, but all was
of no avail, for Lesurques, after writing
a public letter to Dubosc, the real mur
derer, together with Courriol, was executed.
The passenger on the mall, whose
real name was Durochat, was arrested
a short time after and being identified,
confessed and implicated the ringlead
ers Dubosc and Vidal and told how, hav
ing feigned sleep most of the way, the
crime was carried out as before de
scribed, with the aid of Vidal, Dubosc,
Rossi, Courriol and himself.
Two weeks after Laborde was sen
tenced to death. He implicated all the
others. In December Vidal was guil
lotined. The witnesses who had been
so sure of the identification of Lesur
ques were now more positive that they
had been mistaken, and when a wig

Pope Benedict XV.
From a secretaryship in the service of the papal see to an archbishopric and thence to a cardinal's high
estate and to the papacy itself, in the short space of nine years, is a chapter of promotions and advancement
quite sufficient to prove that the new head of the Catholic church is able to fill his great place, with power and
dignity and maintain the best traditions of his exalted station. He was made Archbishop of Bologna by Pius X,
who knew him well, and the same pope gave him the office from which he has risen to the highest honor his
church can bestow. ' .' 1 - , , ... .. ... ......
