Track Star Bringing Two Machines to
Enter in Four Events on Thursday.
Is First Entry
n yesterday's train came quite a
delegation of famous drivers from Dal
las, Texas, who will hold the reins
over the fast ones during the Ari
tma State Fair. Among the first to
be greeted was Jimmie McVay, and
his little whirlwind mare "Minnie
Chimes," both of whom are great fa-
"rites at Phoenix. Jimmie and Min
nie will have many an ardent rooter
in the grandstand.
There was also Al Russel who came
with "Don Dcnsmore," 2:L",i and
"Bessie Bee," 2; 04 3-4. "Don Dcns
iii're" has come west once more to
try and get the scalps of "Jim Lo
gan." "Leata J." and "Don Pronto."
. 1-2
Brittenfield also came with "M.
J.," who goes in the 2:07. 2: Oil
free-for-all trots.
Harry Bell comes with the famous
"Grattan Boy," 2: 09 'A, who was sold
to "Pop" Gears for $.")000.
S. L. Hawley came with
"Knight of Strathmore." 2:0r,
continued his winning streak at
las by taking both the 2:07 and
pace, and "San Jacinto," 2:03
was brought by Ji G. McGuire.
Frank I'hilds, the driver that made
"Leata J." famous and who has been
east all summer, has come to Phoe
nix to pilot the little mare to victory
oiice more. Fach and every one of
these drivers should have a story to
themselves, and they will have, before
the fair is over.
I K. Parkhurst, commonly called
"Red" by the favored few who ever get
to see him, will be here to ride the
speed Harleys in the track races dur
ing fair week. This is both interesting
and true. Doe Lane, boss of the Har
ley agency here announced it from a
yellow telegram that he received yes
terday. Red is now in San Angelo Texas,
where lie has been bringing the gray
motes in winners in a number of fast
events. Having two machines, Park
hurst will be enabled to enter every
event to which he is eligible. They do
say that he made a mile in 3S sec
onds -on one of the beach straightaways
at Galveston.
Autos Will be Kept Off Grand Avenue.
Only Dust Nuisance Now Re
mains to be Abated
Traffic improvements that the peo
ple howled for so lustily last year, have
been instituted this fall at the state
fair grounds, and now the only work
needed is the laying of the dust along
McDowell road and libout the gate of
the grounds.
As before, McDowell will be reserved
for autos, while the gee-gees and pe
destrians, bikes and others in the class
of "just folks" will take Grand avenue.
The regulation will be strictly enforced;
absolutely no autos or motorcycles will
be permitted on Grand avenue between
Five Points and Six Points.
Workmen got the frame work for the
new and artistic auto gate completed at
the fair grounds yesterday. This gate
will give into the plaza w hence the ears
of private owners can be parked and
those operated lor hire sent out another
gate for other loads of visitors.

break. The forts replied. No ships
were hit, only one shot falling along-

cannot be estimated, but a great ex
plosion, accompanied by dense vol
umes of black smoke, occurred at
the Holies front.
Eight colonels were made major
generals as a reward for gallant ser-

France bestowed the of an "Officer

British officers and a Chevalier's

That the Coyote-Normal game, which
was to have been played at Riverside
nark this coming Friday should be
played on Saturday instead, was de

the athletic directors of the two schools

Coach Schaeffer of the Tempe norm:
held off for two hours before he gave
in as to when the game between his
team and the Coyotes should be played
and how much he should be allowed
out of the gate receipts to pay the ex
penses of bringing his boys from across
the river. Finally, after a promise
a return game and a guarantee for an
amount that would pay the expense
of three teams here, he gave in and
said he would play on the condition
that the game be held on Saturday in
stead of the day before.

ers on Saturday. Coach Geary is
working his boys hard on all forms of

unprepared to meet the most complex
onslaught or break through the solid

The Pedagogues journeyed to Tucson
last Saturday where they met a school
of their own class in years but far
more experienced and were defeated
by a comparatively small score. This
will be readily understood when it is
known that the. Tempe boys have never
played football on a coached team be
fore as it was their grandfathers that
played on the T. N. S. eight years ago.
Schaeffer is known to be one of the
best in Arizona and with the material

German Army Stops
LONDON, Nov. 3. That the German
urmy has abandoned the attempt to
buck its way along the Belgian coast
to Calais is agreed upon in all official
reports tonight.
The combination of an inundated
country, a remnant of the Belgian army
under King Albert, and the activity of
the British warships, has seemingly all
contributed toward ending the. costly
struggle. A Berlin official statement
ittributed the failure of the Germans
entirely to the flooded state of the
country, where the water in places is
over a man's head. But it declares the '
army of Kmperor William withdrew In
good-order, without losses. After near
ly three weeks desperate fighting the
brunt of the attack has now shifted to
the. Ypres region, where the English
army field marshal Sir John Fren
reinforced with Indians, and territori
als, apparently must meet another on-
laught. To this scene of a contem
plated battle, according to reports,
Kmperor William has gone to give en
couragement to his men by his presence.
A state of war exists between Turkey
on one side and Russia, Great Britain
and Servia on the other, vet the Otto
man government appears as a house
divided against itself, one section
seemingly being desirous of war while
the conservatives are trying to smooth
over the situation arising from, attacks
upon the Russian ports and ships bv
the Turkish war vessels directed by
German officers.
Russia has apparently welcomed the
war and will not give the Turks a
chance to draw back, while the r.ritish
cruiser Minerva smashed the Turkisli
base of operations against Kgypt at the
head of the gulf of Akabah. The Turk
ish ambassador in London as yet has
made no arrangements to leave and
the embassy still maintains a concili
atory attitude.
Jhe closing of the North Sea to all
shipping except that placed under th
protection of the British fleet is rec
ognized as the first stroke of Admiral
Huron Fletcher, the new first sea lord
of the admiralty, and also as one of the
most important events. All cargoes
destined for German or Austrian con
sumption must now run the gauntlet of

The making of the North Sea a mil
itary area already has brought adverse
comments from Germany. The Cologne
Gazette claims Great Britain has virt
ually proclaimed the blockade of the
North Sea which its fleet will be un
able to enforce. Newspapers at Hol
land also raise objections to the re
strictions placed on the navigation of
the North Sea.

CHICAGO, Nov. 3. The gravity of
the epidemic of mouth disease of
middle-western cattle was driven
home to cattlemen when Dr. E. S.
Bennett of the bureau of animal in
dustry answered their protests with
the statement that the slaughter of
the suspected cattle at a cost of
$10,000,000 is cheap compared with
the incalculable loss frum a spread of
the malady.
There is no way of fighting the
plague known except the destruction
of affected and suspected animals,
and federal agents favor the closing
of the Union Stock Yards, the largest
cattle market in the world, and such
an order, rcscinuca only alter neavy M

yet be given.
The packers say the price of beef
will drop because cattlemen will rush
their stock to market fearing to risk
the diseases and cattle are now re
