The Losers.
Often tlie man who has the most
grief in other words, the loser is
the man who produces the most sen
sations and the greatest upspringing
of sympathy in the breasts of tho audi
ence. This was the case yesterday.
Hard luck tagged several of the
riders, and got two of them, l'irst,
v.as Elbe Wilson, who had been nomi
nated to ride the second Kxcelsior en
try. Wilson sprung his fly wheel in the
morning practice, and was in the same
boat with Don Johns, when that amia
able speek-klng's mount had a simi
lar accident during the fair week reccs.
Wilson was heart-broken.
Then there wn? Sellner, tho man, of
"whom they say, "You can set your
watch by his laps." Sellner acquired
the one anil only nail on the track,
in his twety-fiist mile. He pulled in
to the pits with a flat rear tiro, yanked
the wheel, jammed in a wheel off his
road machine, and finished the race
wilh a huge studded tire in place of
the little slender racing shoe, lie made
a wonderful ride as lie did in the
hundred mile race, and he deserves a
whole lot of credit.
Young Harry Crandall had ignition
trouble of the worst kind that means
of the simplest kind. For one seldom
knows where to look for that sort of
grief. His magneto short wire came
loose and touched the frame, and he
traded spark plugs, hut to no avail.
When he really discovered the trouble,
he had been put hopelessly out of it.
He had made 57 laps when he stopped.
but as he 'was not running with the
crack of the finish gun, his race does
not count.
It is hard to say why O'Connell and
Boido did not develop more speed.

counting in his stop. Neither O'Connell
nor Roido had a particle of trouble,
and the two famous local racers, the
"short coupled" Kxcelsior and Indian

as when they were first turned loose
by the mechanics.

Dealers in rubber goods, tires, as
well as those ir. the automobile indus
try, are interested in efforts being
made by the Rubber Club of America
and the Uubbcr Trade Association of
New York to induce the British gov
ernment to lift the embargo on the
exportation of rubber from the British
colonies insofar as that embargo ap
plies to the United States.
In an effort to attain this end B.
G. Work of the Goodrich Rubber com
pany left for England recently to
confer with representatives of the Bri
tish government. Mr. Work was de
signated as the official representative
of the Rubber Club of America and
the Rubber Trade Association of New
The importance attached to the ne
gotiations to be conducted by Mr.
Work was explained yesterday by
Howard E. Raymond, vice president
of the Goodrich Rubber company.
"The finer grades of rubber," he
said, "come either from Brazil or the
: Island of Ceylon and the Malay States.
'Ceylon or the Malay States arc Bri
tish colonies, and therefore the em
bargo of the British govcmuenl
places a ban on the exportation of
! the rubber of those two colonies to
I, he diked States. This leaves us
with only Brazil to supply us with
jtho finer grades of rubber, and the
supply from that country is w holly
inadequate, for American consump
tion. "The ostensible object of the Bri
tish government in placing the cm
j bargo on the exportation of rubber
is to keep that product from getting
Unto the hands of Germany and Aus
i trill. But it hits the United States
as badly as either of these countries.
We are trying to arrange it so that
Ceylon and tbe Malay States can ex
port their rubber to this country in
order to supply the legitimate needs
of this country. As yet we have
been unsuccessful, but we hope the
difficulties may be solved in a sat
isfactory manner."
Crude rubber is selling in New
York at about ninety cents a pound,
while in England the price is fifty
one cents a pound, with practically
no market, it is said. The normal
demand for rubber in tbe United
States during 1913 is estimated at
65,000 tons. Of this amount Brazil
will be able to supply only 35,000
tons, leaving fully 30,000 tons which
must come either from Ceylon or the
Malay States. Unless England lifts
the embargo it is said that 250,000
employes in the rubber industry in
this country will be affected as well
Thrills galore, spills none, but sen
sations a plenty were the dues met
ed out by the riders in the hour
race at the fair grounds yesterday.
At the crack of the gun in the
callable hands of bowhiskercil Herb
Worcester, seven nerveless riders of
tbe two-wheeled streaks started out
to chew up the soii, covering the
track and incidentally to break a
world's record.
From the sidelines, the race was a
thriller from the start, and if such
a thing is possible even before the
start, 'cause to see the efforts of
the officials to line up the checkers
and give them instructions, and the
jostling noisy crowd and many un
derfed boys, who momentarily
threatened to get in front of some
unthrotlled machine, was certainly
exciting indeed.
The race started out finally after
every one had placed their riders,
and several lusty lunged pushers
had done their best toward helping
the riders toward the first mile.
Creviston jumped into the lead im
mediately, and never lost fhe place.
He made sensational turns, using a
style distinctly his own, and making
skids at every turn, that threatened
to disestablish the bahince of the
rail birds, if not his seat on his
machine. The rest of the riders set
tled down to chafing Creviston, and

On account of the glutting of the
British markets with crude rubber,
it is said that British rubber man
ufacturers under present conditions
will be able to undersell the Ameri
can manufacturer. It is believed,
however, that the British government
will lift the embargo so far as it ap-
re- plies to the United States, provided
for a assurances are given that none of the

little faster.
The feature thrills of the day were
furnished by young Bill Gerig, the
youngest entry, and mounted on the
oldest machine, "Old Blue," reno
vated from the junk heap, and put
in repair for this particular race.
He was a sensation from the start,
although his machine did not have
the speed of the other boats, he
managed to keep in the running fin
ishing fourth. He nearly had his
heart broken, when In the twenty
third lap he burned out a spark plug
in his rear cylinder, and had to stop
for repairs. Bill had tears in his
eyes when he pulled up in the pits,
hut that was excusable, as it has
been known of many an older rider
both in the auto and motorcycle
game. Bill soon managed to secure
a plug for his machine, and was
away again, skidding at every turn,
and several times making the
hearts of the spectators jump by
his spectacular ridinff.
Lorenzo Roido, the winner of the
Eos Angeles-Phoenix road race, was
there mounted on an Indian. He
gave an exhibition of good conserva
tive riding, sticking close to the lead
er, but in spite of his efforts to hold
on to his position he was lapped
both by O'Connell and Creviston. He
had an opportunity to make up this
lost distance, when Creviston went
out for repairs, but was unable to j
make the laps before Creviston was
back on the circuit.
The other riders, especially O'Con
nell, who finished second were as
nervy as the winner, but for un
adulterated, condensed nerve, the for
eigner had it on them all. The
crowd enjoyed the race from start
to finish, and gave evidence of want
ing more, several complaining of the
shortness of the program.
The Preliminaries
Three fully equipped stock ma
chines going five miles in five min
utes and five seconds an average of
one minute and one second per mile,
started the racing. Elbe Wilson on
an Indian, O'Connell on an Excelsior
and Rudderow on "Scoop's" Harley
were the riders who did this stunt.
O'Connell finished first, way ahead
of the rest of the field, with Wilson
second and Rudderow bringing up
the rear.
The bicycle race, was a comedy
after the speed developed by the
motor equipped machines. The riders
jockeyed for positions during the first
mile, and managed to work up a
sorint during the last quarter mile.
Ward Shiffer winning, after being
forced to his best by the rest of
the peddlers. Time, : 43.
The relay race was the heart
breaker of the afternoon. It seemed
sort of heartless of the officials trfi
make a rider get off of his machine
and surrender it to a waiting team
male, but that was the rule of the
race. Crandall and Butler mounted
on a Merkel, won in f:44. Wilson

"gentlemen" racers (by gentlemen is
meant that they were not in rac
ing togs) made a good third, in spite
of Breunigger's apparent unfriendli

dian, evidently not being as speedy
as the other machines.
