THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 17, .1914 WORLDo OTOKTj THIS AUTO RACING IS JUST ONE CONTINUOUS HEADLINE Phoenix Races Over, Decks Must Be Cleared for El ' Paso-San Diego and Co- rona Races Both Coming Poco Pronto (By Scoop.) ' There ia seldom a time when the active motor racing bugs of the west are entirely repressed, and now that three great races are over, there i a bustle of preparation for two mire. The Los Angeles to Phoenix, Kl Paso to Phoenix and Phoenix track events are now growing dim history, but there is another set of headlines to be set and placed in the forms. :EI Paso to San Diego is the big gest in local interest, for that race v,ill pass through -Phoenix, hesitating i.ver night. The other is the Corona rtvud, race. which this fall has ben made to follow, rather than precede the state fair events. In the Corona race, which occupies the boards at the Circle City on Thanksgiving day. a good many of the stars who ap peared here last week will be seen in more pretentious cars. There will be Cooper, winner of the 50-mile rac, in the same Stutz, No. 8; Nikreni, who got second in the Los Angeles race, in the wheel seat of one of tne Mercers.

In addition to the above there wi.l be Harry Grant, whose Isotta was th-i first in the Vanderbilt last February, and now possessor of the same Sun team which carried Johnny Mar quis to the fence at Death Curve on the Santa' Monica track; Bob Bur man, Oldfield's last great undefeated rival; Eddie Pullen, who won ihe Grand Prix on his Mercer; Ralph De Palma, driver of the winnins Mercedes in the Vanderbilt; Huntley Gordon, whose privately owned Mer cer made a better showing than Old field's , Wishart's or Pullen's in '.lie Vanderbilt; Guy Ball, formerly o Phoenix, and now the trusted r.ice pilot of the Marmon factory, who will drive the King, with which Kline competed in the - fifty-miler last week; Eddie Rickenbacher, who won the Taooma road race. By teams the drivers are as fol lows: Peugeot: Btirman "and Rickenbach er; Sunbeam: Grant and Babcock; Dusenberg: Tom Alley, Eddie O'Con nell and Ted Callaghan; Stutz: Coop er, Kline and an unknown; Mercer: Pullen.

The race will be 301. g miles long. The purse will amount to about $15, 000. with the Flagler trophy. The Road Race. With characteristic energy the E! Pasoans are getting a Three-A sanc tion for the long road race to San Diego. When it is granted Phoenix will then become officially a niglit control in a road race the first time it has happened since The Republica.i cup race first put the Arizona capi tal on the auto racing map. Some of the chaps who will be in the Corona race, really big fellows in the game, will also enter the road race. But the bulk of the entries will, of course, be the local drivers, the desert rats. Hugh Miller, win ner of the El Paso race, announced only yesterday that he "would not tar-" ry long before stripping the Pope Hartford for another rough tuning preparatory to the 950 mile grind. o TELLING EXACTLY WHFT RECORD MAY MACK BEAT Going to the fire in Bill Horrell's eight cylinder Ca-dill-ick with the ac cent on the dill, is an exciting exper ience especially when you pass Slim Tadlock's mired fire truck on the road side and plow through a million ex cited spectators. Bill was demonstrat ing the famous car, and showing the R. A. R. what a nice boat it was. When the bell rang, he turned and beat the crowd of hurrying bikists to the scene of Mr. Goldman's former hay barn. Speaking of the car, reminds one that Horrell is now highly occupied with a new job. He is engaged in the pastime of collecting crowds for the traffic cops to disperse, and otherwise enacting the role of the street doctor of the old flare lamp days and the Indian make up and the swamp root bitters. Wherever the hood of the big green bus goes up, there ensues a jam of folks, who want to see what it looks like, and try to guess whether it is running or not. Early this morning, Horrell departs for Globe in the eight cylinder, taking with him Editor J. W. Spear of The Republican, who is starting on a short vacation. Don Lee, the Pacific coast distribu tor for the Cadillac would not believe that Horrell had received one of the 1915 models until he viewed It with his own eyes. In order to get the car here for the fair, Horrell shipped it by ex press to El Paso, transshipped by freight to Douglas and drove it to Phoenix. f Phone 452 . City Drug Store ! W. S. Lawson, Prop, Cor.. 1st Ave. and Adams Rt. And Refuting Claim That 2:07 Trot Was Not a Matter for Con gratulation Among Phoe nix Boosters. In the big black book which the dopster keeps on his desk and con sults on rare occasions for records and things, there will be fcrund the history of the world's trotting race iecord, to which Phoenix contributed somewhat last week. "Resume-in;;" f;.ir week is a favorite pastime for the dopster, until all the interesting little details that have been missed in the rush, are covered. May Mack's performance on the Phoenix track was worth all the no tice given it in The Republican and other papers, although there be some SvTibes here who stoutly maintain that no world mark suffered very much in that famous 2:07 irot. Here are the facts: Hamburg Belle in 1908 set a world's Hotting record, three heats for a mare in 2:05, 2:06 and 2:04. Total (1:14. On October 5, at Lexington, Ky., in a race for the Walnut Hall cup, a i:12 trot, Rhythmell trotted three heats in 2:05, 2:05U and 2:01V;. Total 6:1514. . On November 13, at Phoenix, Mcy Mack trotted three heats in the 2:07 trot in 2: 05 !4. 2: 04 and 2:05. Total 6:14.. This matter of half seconds does not count so very much, but it changes the line in every record be nk, making it read, "Phoenix, Ari zona," instead of some other place. HI VICE TO BE TOPIC OF STIRRiHG TALK Prof. Carlton H. Parker to Deliver Annual Address at Federated Brotherhood Meeting Tonight on "So cial Ethics, Modern Life" Professor Carlton H. Parker, one of the special agents for the department of labor of the United States, who is now studying conditions in this sec tion, has accepted the invitation :.i address the annual meeting of the Federated Brotherhoods of the Churches of Phoenix at the Y. M. C A. tonight upon the question, "So cial Ethics and the Modern Life." Li this address Dr. Parker, who has made a study of the problem bot'i n this country and in Europe, wlil deal with the "segregated vice dis trict," and pay his respects ' to a petition that has been variously sign ed of late in this city under the caption of "Clean I'p Phoenix." The petition in question has been circulated among a number of the leading people of Phoenix, and num bers of women have signed it under the impression that it was a cam paign for a cleaner Phoenix from the standpoint of cleaner streets, alleys, lots, back yards and waste places, as well as a part of a campaign to drive certain undesirable citizens out of the city. It is stated on good authority that it turns out to be nothing more than a petition asking for the estab lishment of a "red light district" in Phoenix. . Dr. Wilkinson, president of the fed erated brotherhoods, and one of th? leading physicians and uplift workers in Phoenix, was very emphatic last evening in his denunciation of the at tempt on the part of some well meaning but probably misguided per sons, and when he found the sub ject of Dr. Carlton's address issued an invitation broadcast to men and women to attend the meeting of the brotherhood federation. The nd address will probahly start at 8:i'0 o'clock. Prior to the address there will be held the annual dinner of the brotherhood, at which a turkey din ner will be served fur 50 cents. To this all the churchmen of the city are. invited. A large number are ex pected to avail themselves of the dinner privilege, with still larger numbers in attendance at the lecture.

(Advertise ment.) o INCENDIARY VISITS WRATH (Continued From Page One) A PROCLAMATION OF THANKSGIVING Executive Department State of Arizona In these troublous times, when the countries of Europe are being devastated by rival armies; when for eign homes and firesides are being made desolate by visitations of death; . when, in brief, the strifes of human kind are impeding the wheels of industry and threatening that ideal civilization to the attainment of which uni versal peace is deemed essential, the people of the United States, with amity indwelling, are by Divine dis pensation permitted to pursue in quietude the multiple r.ctivities of everyday life whereby the sustenance, of Home and Church and State is afforded security and permanence. Arizona, as an integral part of our Nation, being likewise under the guardianship of - that Divine Providence which bestows all rewards and blessings upon mankind, continues to garner the fruits of industry re sultant from the development of her wondrous resources, while the future of the state is bright with promise and her people are animated by a spirit of hopefulness that is futurity's best augury. NOW, THEREFORE, I, Geo. W. P. Hunt, Governor of Arizona, acting in observance of a revered national custom, in pursuance of law, and in accordance with the proclamation of our honored President, Woodrow Wilson, do hereby proclaim that THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2fith, 1914, shall be set aside as a Day of Thanksgiving, on which, with appropriate ceremonies and festivities, all citizens may, at altar and at fireside, manifest unto the omnipotent Creator their gratitude for blessings divinely conferred, and may, by generous exercise of kindness to ward the needy and infirm, show themselves imbued with that universal and all-pervasive love that tempers the hastening of circumstances and ameliorates the sting of human woes. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the great seal of the State of Arizona to be affixed. . . .

This time it was a small shack standing between the shop tracKS and the stock yards. An alarm was hurried in, and for the second time in the evening, the monster fire trucks sputtered their way to the warehouse district. I When the flames were subdued, the house was a total wreck, but the big stock pens had been saved. AH this time the skies about were being filled with heavy white' smoke from the burning Goldman building, and the glare of the few remaining flames and of the red hot sheet iron roofing were making that end of town an humble imitation of the Inferno. Crowds that had gathered to see the huge blaze of the warehouse were apparently too sur feiteed with excitement to attend the much less thrilling fire in the watch man's shanty by the cattle pens, so that last feat of the fire fiend was hardly a dramatic success. The theory has been advanced that the fires are the work of a person with a throbbing grouch against the Arizona Eastern. Every fire has beeen either in an Arizona Eastern goods car or in a warehouse located within that small area bounded by the tracks, Jackson, Ninth and Twelfth streets. One hint went the rounds that the incendiary Was a crazy man' from Ray or Hayden. Another had him a discharged employe. Still another theory placed the blame on some maniacal pervert who loved to see things go up In smoke, and to watch people come clattering around to watch what he had done, while he, himself, possibly mingled with the audience and enjoyed their bewilder ed speculation. ' Certainly there was no doubt as to the malicious origin of the fires. In five cases out of the seven, the traces of the means used in starting the fires were found In all cases, bundles of oiled waste, carefully placed where they would do the most harm. The Arizona Eastern yards were guarded last night by a hundred sil ent men, who sheltered electric torches under their coats, what few times they used them, and who strained their eyes In the darkness for a sight of the skulking figure that would be the cause of all this trouble. Word was received here yesterday of the marriage of Miss Amelia Cosach to Bertram Smith which took place in Los Angeles, Saturday evening. Owing to the prominence and popu larity of the young folk the news will be read with more than ordinary inter est. The bride is a charming young girl and a favorite in Bisbee and Los Angeles where she recently visited relatives. Mr. Smith is the son of Mrs. J. Y. T. Smith and well known in Phoenix where the family made their home for more than a quarter of a century. He attended Pomona College and later took a mining course at the University of Arizona. For several years he followed his profession as mining engineer, hav ing been located at Silver Bell for many years. Later he moved to Bisbee to act as manager of the Buxton Smith Produce company which position he now occupies. He is a frequent visitor in Phoenix and always a welcome one. Mr. and Mrs. Smith are at present in San Francisco and will be at home in Bisbee after December 1.

MEXICAN PHYSICIAN VISITS NA- CO Dr. Alberto Diaz Viscassa, a prominent local Carranzista, visited Naco on Sunday and called upon his friend General Benjamin Hill in com mand of the troops in the beleaguered city. That the visit today of Judge Will It King, chief counsel of the United 5'taies reclamation commission, will settle many open questions concern :i g project cost and time extension, is the belief of water users' officials, who were advised by wire yesterday of the long delayed coming of the le gal head of the service. Judge King is coming from El Paso, accompanied by Supervising Engineer Frank W. Hanna of the southern irrigation district. While lie t specially a visit for the stated purpose of conferring on the secre- 1 ui! y's plan of cots estimating, the uvsence of Judge' King will be made '.he opportunity of putting several matters up to him, that have been 1 threshed out in meetings of the di- : lectori. There has been no provi sion made for the Salt River project participating actively in the work of surveying the cost items of the . Roosevelt system. On several occasions. the governo:s and councilmen have met to appoint a representative on the board, bit owing to strenuous -objections .o the method Mr. Lane pui poses to adopt, nothing has been done. The secretary plans to insti tute en each project a commission. composed if an accountant named by himself, nn engineer of the reclama tion service and a representative of the water users' association. The findings of this commission will be placed before a board of review, of which the secretary of the interior will be the head, and the final as sessed cost of each separate project will be determined by that board of review. building. While he did not definitely state just what sort of building he ex pected to erect, he intimated that it would probably be six stories in height, absolutely fireproof and mod ern in every respect. He further stat ed he believed he could arrange for the construction to be carried on in such a manner that the present leaseholders we;uld be enabled to open again for business in less than ninety days. Leon R. Gass, proprietor of the Gass Bros, chop House, transferred his loca tion between meals from the burned structure to the Golden Rule Chop House on West Adams street. The Golden Rule will hereafter he kept open night and day to take care of its own customers and those of the burned chop house. George N. MacBean, of the Busy Drug Store, announced last evening that arrangements had been made! with the Adams Pharmacy to take care of its prescription business, and Charles Urban, who had charge . of the photographic department at the Busy Drug Store, will also be found at the Adams Pharmacy pending the recon struction of the former eiuarters. The same telephones will be installed at the Adams Pharmacy as were in use at the Busy Drug Store so that there will be little confusion in the handling of the Busy's regular trade. i It lacked but throe weeks of nine years since the Gass Bros. Chop House was opened in Phoenix. On Washing ton's birthday, the newer and most modern establishment was re-opened and at onc took first rank among the eating houses of the southwest. The establishment to be reconstructed will be on a par with that destroyed. It would be better if that were possible, but it was generally conceded that the last word in chop house fixtures and arrangements was said when the doors of the establishment were thrown open last February. A new lease was exe cuted yesterday to continue for five years. The newer establishment will have far more space than previously and will be as complete as money can make it. C. D. Barnett, one of the heaviest losers by yesterday's fire stated last evening that he was convinced that the fire originated from a defective flue on the west side of his establishment. He had called the attention of the owner of the building to the condition of the flue some time previously and had urged that it be repaired. Fire Chief Sullivan stated that the report that the fire was the work of an incendiary, seemed to him absolutely untrue and that he shared the same opinion with Mr. Barnett that a defec tive flue was responsible for the worst fire Phoenix has had since the destruc tion of the Hotel Adams.

Two hundred women employed in making sugar bags in the federal sugar refinery struck today, and hurled stones and bottles through the windows. They were dispersed by turning a stream of hot water on them. The women were paid 1 a day. They struck when notified they would be paid 1 cent each for bags, claiming that this would reduce their wages by one-fourth. TREATY IS NOT BINDING WASHINGTON, Nov. 16.

That the fire didnot communicate to the Thalheimer building, adjoining on the east, and t occupied by the Casino saloon, was ! due to the concentration of the efforts ! of the firemen at that point, where dided by a fire wall, they took a stand and prevented a further spread. There ' Was good work, too, in preventing the fire jumping the narrow alley between the Gass Chop House and the Hoff man Cafe. Notwithstanding the fact that Phoe nix is today minus several prominent establishments it will not be long be fore practically all of them will be re habilitated in newer and better quar ters upon their former sites.
