There is going to be automobile and
motorcycle excitement through Arizo
na again before long. Hardly will the
otecussion over the Phoenix road races
have been finished when the race bugs
will start talking up the El Paso to
San Diego Borderland route race to the
Panama California exposition, one for
motors and the other for motorcycles.
Four hundred and five plus five
hundred and thirty-three makes nine
hundred and forty-two, which will be
the approximate length of the race,
and it will be aljout the longest race
ever competed for, outside the New
Torlc to Paris grind which the Thomas
won in 1905.
Erwin G. Baker, motorcycle winner
from El Paso to Phoenix, now believes
he will essay the role of a race car
pilot and has made arrangements to
strip his Packard for the exposition
race. ""S
Hugh Miller, winner of the El Paso
Fhoenix race, will be in it.

Few Realize What Immense Work Is
Don in Making Motor
The general public has little con
ception of the enormous size and
far reaching influence of the motor
car industry. The motor car indus
try is not only prospering, but is
employing more men and . doing a
bigger business than at any previous
time in its history. This would
ohow that either there cannot be
much truth to the current talk of
business depression, or that the
motor car has become a recognized
With its allied lines, the manufac
turer of motor cars today doubtless
ranks second only to iron and steel
rmong this country's manufacturing
industries. Occupying this conspicu
ous position, it is doing much to re
lieve the financial stringency brought
b bout by the war by putting into
circulation large sums of money in
all part3 of the country.
Today Americans are spending
more money in automobiles than
ever before. The tremendous bump
er crops throughout the farming dis
tricts, combined with the high prices
prevailing on produce, have cause!
unprecedented prosperity in the rural
communities. Thousands of motor
cars are being sold to farmers and
people whose financial welfare is de
pendent on the crops.
Every dollar used for the purchase
of' a motor car means that hundreds

I George SUtlOn, Ule uuiutiu
player, seems in a fair way to dis
prove the theory that "they cant
come back." Competing in the series
of the Champion Billiard Players'
league he has shown an ability to
: rlay up to his best form. The vet
eran is leading the I. -.gue and is
confident that he will continue to dc
j so until the end of the season. Onj
races just passing into history will re
peat. One of the most interesting figures
in the ring will be young George Leon
ard, driver of the Buick No. 2 in the
El Paso race.' Leonard's car is owned
by a prominent Mexican business man
in El Paso, whose sporting blood is of
the finest quality, and he declared
after the showing his driver made in
the first race that he could prepare the
car for the longer contest. Leonard is
very anxious to try it again, and, al
though new to the racing game, has
enough confidence in himself and his
car to make another try at the game.
His mechanic, H. L. Wright, another
EI Paso boy, will remain with him
through the next race.
In the El Paso-Plioenix race there
will be three night controls and Phoe
nix will be one of them, Yuma another,
and either Fisbee or Tucson the thirV.
The racing time will be approximately
30 hours, judging by records set on the
same course this year.
Oldfield Done
Many folks wonder whether Barney
Oldfield will ever again enter a road
race, now that he has won so splen
didly the hardest race in the history of
thes port. The possessor of The Re
publican cup for 1914 and 1915 has an-
nounced emphatically that he will not
! go through the grind again. "I have
That is all I wanted. They thought
the old man with the cigar was like
Jim Jeffries, but you know me, Barney
I Oldfield!"
Miller Just Starting
The first Phoenix boy to win a Phoe
nix race is now .looking into the motor
racing gam? with the idea of trying it
as a steady business. He wants to try
out again, some time, and find out that
it was no fluke that won him the El
Paso race. As a matter of fact, the
principles on which Miller prepared
his car were scientifically right and
Stan Murphy, whose Mercer Hugh put
through the Prescott Loop race to a
splendid victory last July, heartily
agrees with the diagnosis.
of trades and arts are profiting by
the investment. The conversion of
raw material into finished cars is
putting millions of dollars into 'he
pockets of machinists, foundrymcn,
trimmers, assemblers and other mas
ter craftsmen who in turn are hand
ing this money over to grocers,
butchers and merchants.
During the third quarter of ;lils
year the total business done by the
motor car factories alone is at a nto
in excess of t4,000,000 per year, md
an increase of eighteen per cent
c.cr the same quarter of last year.
This vast sum represents just so
irlich money put into actual circu
lation. One firm alone, the Willys-Overland
company, employing 8,600 peo
f'.e, reports that it has just com
pleted the biggest month's business
in its history. Shipments of cars
during October numbered 5.601, rep
resenting a money value of 3,572,0(10.

President of Company Makes Beau
det and Nikrent Present of $500
for Work in Race
For bringing two Paige cars into
the money in the Los 'Angeles to
Phoenix auto race, five hundred dol
lars. Such was the item that was placed
upon the books of the Paige Detroit
Motor company by the order of th-?
president last week, after Louis Ni
krent and Frenchy Beaudet had
scooted up to the finish line, second
and third behind Barney Oldfield in
the hardest mud race ever run by a
bunch of auto-maniacs. Notification
ot the good reward that came to
Beaudet and Nikrent arrived in a
telegram to Don Lee, Pacific coast
distributor for the Paige, and to
George Hageman, the local agent.
The checks, each for five hundred
jollars, were awaiting Beaudet and
Nikrent when they got back to Los
Angeles yesterday.
Japan became exceedingly nervous
when, after its ultimatum to Germany
had been delivered, American criticism
of Japanese aggression reached ' Nip
pon. So wrought up was the populace
that reports of the departure of the
American battleship fleet for the Far
East, rumors of contemplated armed
support for Germany, found widespread
credence. It required energetic, reas
suring denials by the Japanese govern
ment to allay the fears of the populace.
And after the Japanese occupation of
Jaluit and of the Carolines the Japan
ese press resented even the very tactful
unofficial American Inquiries regarding
the Intentions of Japan in the South
The domestic affairs of Japan are
mt in an ideal condition. High taxes,
the naval graft scandals, the pro
longed contest between the .aristocracy
and the masses, unsatisfactory indus
trial conditions, disastrous earthquakes
and crop failures in parts of the em
pire have contributed to the restless
ness of the people. Japan is not in a
placid mood. And it distrusts the
United States. It has shown that it
Is ready to believe the wildest rumors
concerning American intentions. Yet
Japan and especially Premier Okuma,
at heart sincerely desire to remain on
friendly terms with the United States.
Out of such mutual distrust and sus
picion the European war was born; it
behooves the United Staets to act with
the greatest circumspection in its deal
ings with the nervous Japanese.
With special force does this admoni
tion apply to California. Owing to a
lack of support, Tveltmoe's Asiatic Ex
elusion League' has gone out of busi
ness. The death of the league proves
definitely that there is no popular de
mand whatsoever for further anti-
Japanese measures. The anti-alien
land law has accomplished its purpose;
no new land purchases are being made
by Japanese. The small amount of
land now being held by them will grad
ually be restored to white ownership
or else descend to the American-born
Japanese who have the full rights of
Switzerland is no place for an Idle
man. No other county in the world is
so determinec. that all her able-bodied
sons shall earn their own bread as this
sturdy little country of wonderful views
and picturesque people.
To let a man who is capable of sup
porting himself become a public charge
is to the frugal sons of the Swiss a hor
rifying waste of material, and so they
take good care that the Weary Willies
of their nation shall not plead the lack
of work as an excuse, for begging and
sponging on their neighbors.
The public authorities In Switzer
land consider it their duty to employ
all men who desire work on civic con
tracts, etc. The man who Bays that he
cannot find work is quickly supplied
with it by the government authorities,
and the shirker Is forced to earn his
living ny being given work that is not
at all to his liking.
If he refuses to work he is placed in
a workhouse under military supervision
where every inmate must labor to the
full extent of his strength for his
board and lodging and 10 cents a day.
Of course, the places are run so that
they are really a source of income in
stead of a burden to the community fo
which they belong, unlike Institutions
of the sort In other countries, which
are a great expense to the government.

Complete Information for
Transcontinental Tourists
for 1915
With the exception of such slight
improvements as may be made dur
ing the winter months, the principal
transcontinental routes are now in
approximately the shape they will be
t the beginning of the heavy travel
to the Pacific coast expositions early
next year. At least no new projects
can be undertaken and finished be
fore this heavy travel begins.
Late reports reaching the A. A. A
touring information board, New York
and Washington, from all quarter?,
indicate that the road improvements
on the principal cross-country lines
during 1914 have been underestimat
ed rather than overestimated. This
is particularly the case on the wes
tern end of the "Northwest Trail"
between Montana and Seattle, es
pecially since the former severe grado
cf Snoqualmie Pass has been reduced
to a maximum of 5 per cent.
The cities, counties and towns on
the line of the Lincoln highway in
the far west have also made very
great improvements in order to bring
that route to as good condition as
possible for 1915 touring. Both Ihe
"Trail to Sunset," and its principal
alternate, the Santa Fe-Grand Can
yon-Needles highway, have .not lag
ged behind the others; and beginning
next year the tourist has two com
plete options between Albuquerque
and Southern California, both of
which can be traveled with comfort
and safety.
AVhile unfortunately some parts of
the "all-southern route" are yet in
poor shape, that line as a whole has
been greatly improved during 1914,
and will not present very serious
difficulties to tourists who decide to
go leisurely across that way in 1915.
The A. A. A. touring board has the
latest information on all these lines,
and is prepared to confer with tour
ists on the routes best suited for
their particular purpose.
Maps and specific information can
be had either at National Headquar
ters, 437 F'ifth avenue, New York, or
National Capital Headquarters, Riggs
building, Washington, D. C. Parties
contemplating cross-country trips in
the spring are especially invited to
take up these subjects with the tour
ing board during the winter months,
which is often advantageous as com
pared with waiting until the actual
opening of the touring season next

Gutierrez Makes it Knovn He In
tends to be President
' WASHINGTON, Nov. 15. Mexican
dispatches leave officials doubtful as
to what Is really happening. A con
sular dispatch announced that Gutier
rez, who was named as provisional
president by the Aguas Calientcs con
vention, yesterday demanded Car-
ranza's retirement as first chief of
the army within twenty-four hours.
Consul Silliman, the president's per
sonal representative at Mexico CitT",
telegraphed that hope was bright for
a peaceful1 settlement. Later advices
from Aguas Calientes said Gutierrez
informed Carranza that unless he re
ceived a definite answer by Sunday
night a general movement against
him would be ordered.

Vegetable Growers' Manager Investi
gates Packing and Shipping Con
ditions in Los Angeles
How they pack and market lettuce
is a subject upon which F. C. Mc
Nabb, manager of the Arizona Vege
table Growers' association, is making
a study. He writes:
"Yesterday I went through a pack
ing shed of the California Vegetable
Growers' Union and had the pleasure
of packing, under the supervision of
their head packer, a crate of lettuce
which I expressed to Phoenix to be
I laced in cold storage until my re
turn, when I expect to cull a meeN
ir.g of the growers and exhibit it. In
this way I hope to show them the
lesults and to determine the length
of time that stock should carry un
der proper packing and cooling sys
tems. "I have secured information :n
valuable to our shipping association
and can see nothing but success
ahead of us."
There will be a meeting of the let
tuce growers of the Salt River val
ley next Saturday morning at 10
o'clock at the board of trade, when
Mr. McNabb will be present to give
the results of his investigations.

very likely stolen from residences,
which have not been identified by their
owners, but today, after the publica
tion of this account of the arrests, it is
expected that other victims of the bur
glars will appear and add their testi
mony to the long list already retired.
Mack, Marshall and Morris seemed to
have worked in pairs, one laying off
when the other two were engaged.
Mack and Marshall admitted they-car-ried
out their jobs at the residences of
Ganz and Dorris. Marshall and Har
ris wonted together on some of the
jobs. They will probably be brought
jointly before the court and their cases
heard at the same time. There is even
a probability that in view of their con
fessions they may never be brought to,
trial, but, admitting their guilt, may
be sentenced to the penitentiary.
The robbery of the Ganz residence
was planned several days before it was
carried out. The key to the door by
which entrance was finally gained was
found on a window sill three days be
fore the robbery of that dwelling. The
men. Mack and Marshall, entered
shortly before midnight and, without
rousing the members of the family,
proceeJed to appropriate a gold watch
valued at $300, a fob, a Shriners' pin,
and other articles, even entering the
bedroom where the elder Ganz was
Abr.ut the time they were in the
midst of their work a son of Mr. Ganz1
arrived in an automobile, entered the
house, passed through the room in
which the men had taken refuge be
hind a door and went on to his room.
He was soon asleep and the two paid
him a visit, securing some money and
some articles of jewelry.
Th? robixry of the lrr's house was
accomplished in broad da light, while
Mrs. Dorris was seated on the front
porch and while a colored took waj at
work about the kitchen. The men se
cured here a considerable quantity of
jewelry, bracelets, lockets and oiher
articles belonging to a daughter cf the
household. They even went so fir us
to appropriate a pair of shoes belong
ing to Mr. Dorris, leaving in exchange
therefore a pair considerably antiquat
ed. At the home of Ralph Ctmeron a
dress suitcase was taken, which,
though not locked, was ripped open
with a knife and some clothing and
other articles removed. A drab fi m
nel shirt with Mr. Cameron's name
sewed under the collar was found in
the articles located by the police. Mar
shall claimed the sh'rt as his own, but
confessed he had stolen it when the
name was exnibued to him.

articles were recovered thai hid nen
taken from a man named Crenshaw at
1230 East Adims sfeet; a gun. a flash

no end of noise by falling into a bath
tub. Mack and Harris were located in a
room on South Seventh street. Tart
of the booty was found in suit cases
and a trunk, but the more valuable
jewelry had been placed in a rubber
tobacco pouch and a chamois bag and
stuffed up a chimney flue.
At the home of Alberto Wilson, in
China alley, where Marshall was a
frequent visitor, pari of the jewelry
taken from the Dorris residence was
found behind a bit of wall paper which
had become loosened from the plaster.
Each of the men had separate rooms
In various parts of the district south
of Madison street and east of First
street. But they frequently met at up
town pool rooms nnd . saloons and
planned their jobs. They were said to
have been about prepared to make a
general cleanup by selling their goods
to various pawnshops and second-hand
stores and then making fa getaway.
They have been in Phoenix from one
to two months and Marshall was pick
ed up suspected of another job, but
later released because of lack of evi
dence. They will be transferred to the
county jail today.
