New Mexico, finally reached here from Yuma yesterday in their hi) Keo touring ear. They arc en route for their home from a tour of California. It was this side of Yuma that the Purg equipage was threatened with destruction. They were compelled to drive three miles over the trackless mesas to the higher ground in order to get away from the raging torrent. Mr. King, who was five years ago an Albuquerque business man, has made a big mark in New Mcico pol itics. After a rapid rise to fame in the first state legislature as a mem ber from Bernalillo county, Mr. Burs was named probate judge of that division, a position which he still holds, and will hold until the ex piration of his term four years her.ee. The Burgs leave this, morning for Albuquerque.

Race horsemen are planning a huge matinee of sports at the fair grounds for Washington's birthday, February 22. 3. It. Lambert, the Phoenix ex pert in the running horse game, has been selected as the chairman of the arrangements committee. The event will occur during the stay of the legislature in the capi tal. Many people will be in town during that month, and it is the ob ject of the promoters to provide some sports for them. Beside a good program of harness horse events there will probably be a few motorcycle races, and a Ford iclay race. Cycle car kids are to lie approached for an exhibition of the newer sport. The mile track has already been secured from the fair commission for that date, and plans will begin, to mature rapidly from now on. o BILLY CARLSON IS STILL SETTING MAXWELL RECORDS Making the fastest inter-city aver age ever recorded by a small car, Billy Carlson in a Maxwell "25" smashed all speed records between Los Angeles and Riverside. He traveled the fifty-four miles in fifty-six min utes and four-fifth seconds. The car he drove was the same he used in the Phoenix road race and later established a record of twenty nine minutes for climbing Mt. Wilson over a road made dangerous with rain and snow. t He went the entire dis tance without a stop. Carlson went out through El Monte to Pomona and Ontario. At the lat ter place the new state boulevard was taken to Riveside. No public an nouncement of the speed run had been made previously and the result was that Carlson was at his destination before it became known what was to be undertaken. In fact the timers themselves were deceived by the speed that Carlson made and they were not on hand to meet him. Ho was crawl ing out of the car when they appeared. o ' MOTORCYCLES SUFFER IN TWO RUNAWAY ACCIDENTS Ray Ward's Machine Badly Wrecked and Ernest Douglas Scours Pave ment as Result of Collision Runaway horses and motorcycles seemed to come together with more than ordinary frequency yesterday, when, as results of two accidents, I!ay Ward and, Ernest Douglas suf fered more or less discomfiture In their mechanical arrangements. The first accident took place on Washington ' street about 2 o'clock, when the delivery horse of Georgt T. Imaztml, a Japanese truck gard ener, collided with the standing mo torcycle of Ray Ward. The machine was badly damaged, a local dealer estimating the repairs at S75. Ima-1 Tyiti-i nLairinril-ir'i-ir hi " iGtin Repairing PINNEY ft ROBINSON 17 South Central MACK III IS HERE J. I). Shibe, Part Owner of Philadelphia Athlet i c s, Arrives in Phoenix for a Short Stay While Recu perating from Breakdown J. D. Shibe, brother of "Old Ben" Shibe, owner of the famous park of that name, and its co-equal in base ball annals, the Philadelphia Ameri cans, arrived in Phoenix yesterday to remain here during the fine winter weather, recuperating from severe colds contracted in the east. Mr. Shibe, who is stopping at the Adams, is accompanied by his pri vate physician, Dr. J. W. Brown of Philadelphia. Dr. Brown said last night that his patient would remain very much in seclusion during their stay here. No one was permitted to speak with the baseball magnate. J D. Shibe, together with his broth er, Connie Mack and others, own the team and park which made Philadel phia the home of the championship team for so many years. Overwork and indisposition brought on during the severe winter broke the health of the club owner, and compelled him to come to Arizona for the benefit of his health. His physician could not say how long their stay would be, or whether Mr. Shibe would at tempt to go back east for the com ing campaign of preparations for the busy 1915 season. The Shibe brothers are backers of the Reach Sporting Hoods company, makers of all sorts of equipment for games. It was in this company that they acquired the wealth which per mitted them to become big league club owners. EVANS SCHOOL TENNIS CRACKS TO PLAY HERE Y. M. C. A.

I-ater in the afternoon occurred an accident of more spectacular and more humorous phases, when a small colt ran away on West Adams street, demolished a light cart and then dragged part of the remains under I the back wheel of Ernest Douglas' motorcycle, as he was proceeding ! slowly west in front of the Columbia I theater. The back wheel and the ' dilapidated sticks that once had been ' a smart equipage, caught and held just long enough to snake the rider and motorcycle half way across the street. Neither - rider nor machine was damaged. o CUBS AND KEWP1ES TIE NINETEEN TO NINETEEN By "Doc Lewy" In a game of basketball, with a good share of football mixed In, the Cubs' Athletic Club team played a tie with the Y.

A. conference be tween the motorcycle men and Secre tary Tom Siiaugnnossy of the state fail commission yesterday resulted in the official permission being given or the use of the mile track in the exhibition and in the preliminary practices. A one hour race between twins, will be the feature of the meeting. Other events will include the usual short dashes of from one to fifteen miles, for both twins and singles. The oddity roce will be a match between Ellie Wil son and Fat Dye on the half mile track. Dye has engaged to ride his twin fast enough to prevent Wilson, mounted on H. W. Worcester's famous "Peashoot er", from hipping him. The race is in the nature of an unlimited pursuit, in that the riders start together, and Wil son must make up a whole lap or half a mile on the twin before the contest ends. John Hold and Ben Ruddcrow are the committee. It is one of Hold's plans to hold a road race between Tuc son and Phoenix either the day of the track races or the day previous, in or der to boost matters for the track pro gram. The Tucson-Phoenix race should be run in a little less than four hours in the present road conditions. Other additions to the program are a side car race a stunt never before pulled in Phoenix, and a cycle cat event. Hohl is also planning putting a small track on the Tolk common, dragging it with motorcycles and setting a lot of motor paced bikists to wranglicg for supremacy. The cycle cars will also compete on this little speedway. Plans for a 350 mile road race, over (he speedway proposed by The Repub lican nearly six months ago, are also pending. The course is planned to lie north on Central to Northern avenue thence to Glendale and back on Grand avenue. Erwin G. Baker, the big noise in the eastern division of the motor cycle game, is expected here next week to take part in all the large events planned by the local club.

Hoover pays tribute to the as sistance in the work of distribution rendered by the Germans, declaring: "The occupying army has been ex traordinarily scrupulous In its obser vance of the -agreement ttiat none of the foodstuffs imported by us were to be consumed by them. The German government has issued a general order that no provisions would in the ordinary course have to be replaced by the relief com mission shall be requisitioned." The report doses as follows: "Despite the volume of food which has been placed at our disposal we can provision only until February 15. Great as has been the generosity of the American people, it is well to bear in mind that if we fail after date the world will be faced by the greatest tragedy it has yet witnessed in the possible extinction of an en tire nation. Strenuous as the efforts that we, our countrymen and coun trywomen have made, they cannot for one moment be relaxed if this gigantic catastrophe is to be pre vented."

Phone 3578 Protection against bad checks, a reduction of the homestead exemption to its former basis, and provision of a penalty for any person obtaining credit by misrepresentation will bo among the measures urged at the coming legislative session by the Merchants' and Manufacturers' asso ciation, other measures, now in the bands fit committees, will probably be acted upon favorably by the asso ciation in the near future and an effort made to have them adopted ;y the legislature. Among the propositions to ,c sub mitted at the session which opens Monday will be three measures pre pared by the Present t association of merchants and manufacturers. One of these, modeled on the California law, would provide for the attach ment fif wages ami salaries of city, county and state officials for bills incurred for the necessaries of iif;. Another would have for its object e t tiding the statute of limitations on i pen book accounts from three years to five, and on notes and judgments from the present limit of four years to six and ten years respectively. Another would protect supply houses from irresponsible contractors on public, buildings. Under existing stat utes supply houses cannot put a fieri on public buildings, and, it is stated, often lose money through irrespon sible parties. Ail these measures will be brought up at the dinner of the local asso ciation Friday night at the Arizona club, when the Maricopa county dele gation to the legislature will dine and discuss with the organization. T. T. Towers, representative-elect, and other legislators will address the association on pending legislation. A reduction in the present assess ment fif merchandise stocks at 100 cents on the dollar is to be discussed at a meeting of a committee of the association with the tax commission this week. It is stated that the com mission will be asked to give its ap proval to a twenty-five per cent re duction, making the assessment to this class of property seventy-five cents on the dollar fif face value. The hearing will be held as soon as Commissioner Campbell returns from Douglas, where he .has been attend ing the cattle growers' convention.

While Arizona still leads in copper production, the output decreased, .on account of market conditions, from 407,923.402 pounds in 1913 to about 3SS,OO0,OO(l pounds in 1914, a decrease of nearly 20,000,000 pounds, or about 5 per cent. Although the production at most of the copper plants was less, the Hayden plant, treating Ray con centrate, the Arizona Copper Co., Cal umet & Arizona, and Consolidated Ari zona Co. made increased outputs. At the Miami mine production was nearly the same as in the former year, al though a considerable increase was mado during the first half of the year, when the mill was concentrating more than 3,000 tons a day. At the Inspira tion mine construction work continued on the concentration plant, and ore was treated by flotation in the test mill, which has a capacity of 600 tons a day. A smelting plant to treat concentrates from this mine and the Miami mine was being constructed by the Interna tional Smelting & Refining Co. The Ray Consolidated Copper Co.. during the first three quarters of the year, treated over 2,000.000 tons of ore and made over 49,000,000 pounds of copper, but the output was greatly reduced in the last half of they ear. At Jerome the United Verde was active but pro duced less than the usual output of 3.000,000 pounds a month. In Y'uma county the plant at Swansea was idle. The mines producing lowgrade dissem inated ores, including the Ray Consol idated, Miami Inspiration, Arizona Cop per, and Detrf.il, had a totril of about NT Opp. Hotel Adams l."i4.niif!.iiiii) pounds of copper, against 13S.471.4S3 pounds in 1013. At many mines experiments were made w-ith both leaching and flotation. At tin; Magma, Kelvin-Sultana, and Copper Queen mines concentration plants were completed, and at the Arizona Copper the mill was enlarged. The output of lead was practically the same as. that of 1913. when the mines produced 16.144.772 pounds. Most of the metal came from the mines of the Bisbee district of Cochise county, especially the Copper Queen anil Shat tuck. In Mohave county the Tennes see mine was a large producer, and its ore, which contains lead and zinc, was concentrated and separated at Needles, Cal. The mine production fif zinc ore was close to that of 1913. when 14726 tons of concentrates and crude fire produced 9.42S.067 pounds of spelter, chiefly from the Goleonda. and Tennessee mines, in Mohave county. The largest dividend payers were the Old Dominion. Calumet & Arizona. Ray, I'nited Verde. Superior & rittsburg, Miami, Shattuck, and Tom Reed. LORD KITCHENER MAKES (Continued from Page One.) beginning of the war at the dearth of officers. Lord Kitchener declared that all vacancies had .been filled and there was now a considerable surplus. Although the training of the men had been carried on under the worst weather conditions, a great deal of exceptionally good work had been done during the past month, he said. Before the adjournment of the house several of the birds brought up the question of enemy aliens not interned in England, whom they con sidered a menance. The Earl of Crewe, speaking for the government, promised to give the subject further consideration. Lord Kitchener praised the cool ness and courage of the people fit Scarborough, Whitby and Hartle-, pools during the recent German na val raid on the east coast and said that no military advantage can be gained by these wanton attacks. The householder's canvass thus far has resulted in the registration of 216,000 men who are willing to servo if called upon, the war secretary said. He continued: , "The great advantages which Ger many enjoyed by reasons of her superiority of numbers and exten sive war preparations have certainly diminished while the allies daily are increasing their resources in such a way as to enable them to prose cute the war to a triumphant 'end. "Tile anticipated decrease in the number of recruits during Christmas week has given place to an increase which has almost restored the week ly returns to their former satisfactory level. I am glad to' say that we have filled up the officers' grades of the expeditionary force and that there is a considerable surplus of training officers to draw from. Since the war began 29,100 officers have been appointed to the army."
