Already There is Talk of
League Anions ('1111)8 in
Valley and 'upper Camps.
Republican Receives Let
ters on the Subject.
I'luns fur the summer's baseball
might ti I warming up shortly. Is
the opinion of those hot stove league
leaders who luive remained faithful
to Die nalional pastime, in this, its
least exciting hour. The Republican
is in receipt of a. number of com
munications on the sulijert of h.ise
l.all for the Salt Itivcr Valley during
the nexl season. F'ublioity will he
&;ien tmt to two of them, however.
Ideas are being sought, so, a further
delving into the sul.jeet is invited. It
is possible that from some of the
eager plans of the devoted followers
of the game, really valuable sugges
tions may he gleaned.
From a man who has managed
baseball clubs in Arizona during UH4,
eomes the following suggestion:
"What do you think of n four-chin
league, composed of 1'hoenlx, Mesa.
Nearly Thirty Motorcyclists
Exercise Themselves on
Goldfield Run, and Turn
Up With Huge Appetites
at Cook-Shack
Now we know why the bread sup
ply went low on us. It's because
the roads are bumpy. Nobody ever
thought of it before, but now, v. e
When thirty motorcyclists under
took to make a club run to Goldfield
mine yesterday, they discovered that
I hey needed food. They needed it
mighty bad. too, for it was hunger-
inducing exercise to sit upon a more I
or less rigid saddle and pound along
over the cuppy. highways. And they
were awfully cuppy, too and hard in
a sinner's heart from the effects of
the long rains of last month and the j
heavy traffic, that beat the mud
down solid and then kept it there
while Old Sol baked it. !
Happily there was an amiable;
China cook at the mess house, and
a big supply of grub, and several
generous lunches among the party,
that the three meals consumed dur
ing the club run were sufficient un
til the riders could get back to Phoe
nix for another large eats in the
form of home-made food. C'ap'n T
Krnest Fugle led the crowd away
from the club headquarters, corner of
Washington and First avenue, after
a neighboring "chop-house" had been
veil and adequately raided. This oc- J
curreu onout eignt ociock. ine air
was zippy with the (hill of an
::ona winter, the crowd was merry
as only motorcyclists having no
large cares may be, and the
was o;.en and free to everybody. All
but Monsieur Harry crandall man
aged to make the trip under proper
power and Harry had to be towed
in although it's shameful of us .to
b t this get into the public prints.
At Ooldfield there was nothing to
do until lunch time, except explore
virgin territory, try hitherto untamed
rand patches and climb never-before-i
limbed dump banks. . It is the big
boast of Pres. Worcester tnat his
single lunged wonder made the dump
erade although he has to admit it
was Ij. Roido who guided the mar
vel up the twenty-foot bank.
Cpokee had not yet' received the
letter warning him that the gans
was coming. In fact, it wasn't de
livered until the whole guest list had
arrived, bringing prodigious appe
tites and loud demands for ths
where-v.ithal to appease them. He
was a new cook, too, having been
hired but the same morning. But all
honor to his yellow hide he "came
It -ough!"
A cook-shack dinner, fit for the
most ravenous miner was produce!
with lightning-like soon-ness. And,
It must be said, consumed after the
name fashion.
Meal No. 3 occurred on the re
turn triii about half way to Phoe-(
nix, when some of the provident ones ,
opened lunch baskets and fed the
j.arty the luscious sandwiches an 1
salads and" plcklen that form the
basis for picnic eats.
Some of the thirty-five new club
members will be found, among the
following list of those present:
T. K. Fogle. R. J. Orput, Kllie Wil

That a football coach, to produce
the best results should make coaching
a regular business is the opinion of
William (Pill) Kdwards, the famous
Princeton guard. Edwards, in stat
ing his views on the future coach
ing system at Princeton, said re
cently: "1 believe absolutely in the one
man system. Football has become a
regular business, and in any regular
business, one man must stand at the
head. There should never be consid-
ered any time any man but a Prince
ton football man lor the position.

when such a man is chosen, he must

Clood Roads Promoters in
Eolith California Plan
ning Concrete Highway
from El Centro to Yuma.
Ask Arizona's Aid
That California is i.lanning to do
do away with the dread Mammoth
Wash or that part of it, which a
concrete highway from El Centro to
Yuma will displace became known
here yesterday on receipt of an urgent
appeal from Col. Ed Fletcher, the
well-known San Diego good roads
promoter, for Arizona's assistance. As
president of the San Diego-Arizona
Ausiliary of the Southern National
Highway Association, Col. I-'leti ber I
writes Harry Welch of the board of I
trade as follows:
I'hoenix Hoard of Trade.
Phoenix, Arizona.
fientlemen :
I'nder date of December 30lh Presi
dent John F. Neylan of the state
board of control of California sends
me the following report which has
iieen made by the state board of con
trol to the state legislature:
El Centro-Yuma Highway
A request for $4UU,iluO to construct
t highway between El Centro in Im
perial county and Yuma, Arizona,
was presented. The state controller
rind the state board of control have
recommended that $l!Uu,iiO! be appro
priated as the state's share in this
construction, and that it be expended
on the condition that the remaining
sum necessary for the ((instruction of
this highway shall be secured either
from the federal government or other
The appropriation is recommended
for this highway in order to connect
the Imperial Valley with the state ol
Arizona, affording that valley an out
let into the neighboring state and at
the same time affording a means for
transcontinental travel to reach
coast without being subjected to
hardships of the present routes.
You will see by the above that
have the administration behind
and there is hardly a question
what the appropriation of $2(10.000 will
be made within the next sixty Uavs.
This means the absolute assurance of
a concrete highway from El Centro,
Calif, to Yum. i. Arizona. Contracts
have been let for most of the state
highway San Diego to E! Centro
and within the next eighteen months
the state highway will be built from
San Diego to Los Angeles, San Fran
cisco and the Oregon line. Tn other
words a first class concrete highway
will eventually be built to Yuma, Ari
zona, from Sart Iiego, and what we
wint see in the continuation of
this highway from Phoenix, Arizona,
find connect up with El Paso, '"'exas.
irid Albuquerque, New Mexico.
We sincerely hope that you will do
evervthing you can to continue the
good work. The lumber has been or
dered, and is now on the road, to
plank the sand dunes between El
Centro and Yuma, and we are ex
pecting by March Kith to have a
temporary road between these two

A trip to Florence and return was
made yesterday by Fred Kenyon and
A. J. Kisselburg of the lJennsylvania
Tire Agency, and C. A. Pope of the
Firestone Agency. They reported,
that although the state highway was
rough, it was dry and not muddy,
which is more than can be said of
the other road.
The trip made by the party, was
one of pleasure, and was made with
out any accidents. They found that
the highways in general were in good

The Jack JoHnson-Jess Willard fight to occur March 17 is getting quite
a little attention. This seems to be mostly because Willard's chances are,
thought rather favorable. He is known to be powerful physically and to i
have a great sledge-hammer wallop. Though Johnson is reported to have
grown quite plump he still keeps up his speed say his managers. i

The iiutiimiihile owning purtion if

oughfares of the past few eeksJ all
combined to briiitf automobili.st.s into
their temporarily abdicated thrones
on the public highways.
On tin- Central avenue boulevard
was a constant procession of ma
chines. Two Ftepublican representa
tives stationed several miles out on
Central avenue, counted three hun
dred machines, in the space of an
hour. The usual number of lii?ht
cars with a fair sprinkling of llilTi
models, to nive ;1 (;,ir show of dis
tinction to the parade, were to be
Out Orand avenue way, although
the road was far from as smooth and
inviting as that of Central av.yitic,
there was a steady stream of cars,
pait of whom slopped at the fail
grounds, but the major portion made
the trip through to Olendale. or com
pleted this circle across Ninteenth
avenue, back to the F'ho, nix streets.
The motorcyclists, also, were out
bi force, the I'hoenix Motorcycle
club, making a run to Ceo. r.
Young's Oolilfield mine. Those who
did not take part in this trip, got
(Hit their rear seats, or furnished up
their side cars, and proceeded to take
their families out to compete with
the parade of motor cars.
So far as known not a serious jc
cident marred the day's pleasure, the
usual number of punctures, with the
accompanying trouble and annoyance,
were registered.
The number of ears out, made a
fine advertisement for the city. The
average stranger, would no doubt be
impressed, not only with the quantity
but with the quality of the ears. A
number of late models, with all the
latest appliances, the average number
of last year's cam, helped to keep the
roads warm.
The down town attraction in the
motor line, proved to be the large
