now? Give you a round dozen

It is a 92 mile loop race, with
Tempe and Phoenix on opposite ends

concern prize money, routs and

Did you read the baseball schedule
carefully yesterday? It is an annual

compliments and wishes for a high

two-wheeled "go-devils" have become

police court just as readily as are the
autojnobilists and an order has been
issued that the same attention be
given speeders on motorcyclists as is
given drivers of cars.
No less than six or seven motorcy

past two or three days. Policeman
Hunt had two or three on the carpet
on Friday and each was assessed a
fine of ten dollars. Policeman Gulley

Open Season on Antelope

That the proposed game law estab
lishing on open season on antelope and
mountain sheep, and lengthening the
deer season would result in the exterm
ination of these animals in a short
time, and should have the active oppo
sition of every citizen of the state, is
the statement of E. W. Nelson, assist
ant chief of the United States biological
survey, in a letter of protest to Gov.
Hunt. Nelson, who has spent much
time in Arizona, is familiar with game
conditions in this state. His letter fol

Washington, D. C.
January 30, 1915.
Hon. George W. P. Hunt,
Governor of Arizona,
Phoenix, Arizona.
My dear Governor Hunt:
I am appalled to learn that there is
a proposal on foot to have an open sea
son for mountain sheep and antelope
and an extension of the season for deer
in Arizona. This effort must come from
people who have a commercial Inter
est in the present exploitation of the
game resources of the state, without
any regard for the future. I am great
ly disappointed that such an effort gets
any backing in Arizona, as I hoped
public sentiment had reached a point
there where the necessity for game pro
tection was more dully appreciated. To
have an open season, even a short one,
for mountain sheep and antelope would
mean the extermination of these ani
mals within a ery short period. The
antelope are decreasing steadily,- even
with the present closed season. I am
informed by people who have been on
th antelope ranges that, owing to their
protection, they have become very tame
and unsuspicious, and this of course
means that an open season would re
sult in their slaughter and almost in
their extermination before they would"
have opportunity to learn, their danger
and become sufficiently shy to in part
protect themselves.
I am writing yon because I know how
Interested you are in game protection
fuid feel sure that you will oppose any
such movement. I am aware how any
interference from the federal depart
ment is resented in some of the states.
but if there is any information or oth
er assistance that can be given you
from this office in helping protect the
rapidly decreasing game of Arizona, I
trust you will feel free to call upon us.
We are greatly interested in the mat
ter of game protection throughout the
country, for without the greatest care
all our game resources will become a
matter of the' past within a very few
years. V
Many of the states are appreciating
this and are having their game laws
revised at the present session of the
legislatures to coincide with the federal
migratory bird bill in the matter of
open seasons for shooting migratory
wild fowl. I hope Arizona may come
Into line in this regard. My interest in
Arizona game is not only due to my
official connection with federal game
preservoton, but is the active Interest
of a citizen of the state.
Sincerely yours,
Assistant Chief, Biological Survey.

SAN DIEGO, Cal., Feb. 7 Although
the great influx is not expected until
warmer weather opens up the roads
throughout the east and middle west,
hundreds of automobile parties already
have made the transcontinental trip
over the Southern National Highway to
the San Diego exposition: and before
the end of 191 S, it is believed that a
total of 25,000 automobiles will cross
the continent with visitors to the two
California expositions. One large party
of tourists already is being organized
by J. J. Cole, president of the Cole Mo
tor Car company, and several others
are being planned by automobile own
ers in all parts of the country.
Of the four recognized transcontinen
tal routes, only one, that through the
southwest is in satisfactory condition
during the winter months. The others,
the northern trail from Chicago
through St. Pt.ul to Seattle, the Over
land trail over the Lincoln National
Hignway from Chicago through Omaha.
Cheyenne and Ogden to San Francisco,
and the Midland trail from Chicago
through Denver and Salt Lake to Los
Angeles, are buried under heavy falls
of Snow. For this reason, almost all
the automobile parties so far have fol
lowed the southern route along the
border through Phoenix and into San
Diego. After visiting the San Diego
exposition, they will go northward
through Southern California to Los An
geles and then on to San Francisco to
attend the opening of the exposition in
that city on February 20.
When the other three trails open for
travel in the course of the next few
months, the great influx of automobile
parties will begin with streams of mo
tor cats making their way to the Pa
cific over all foilr highways.
Last year the three Pacific coast
Mates expended huge sums in putting
finishing touches to their elaborate
system of state highways: and as a re
sult, the roads are in first class condi
tion. States, counties, and towns along
the four main transcontinental high
ways also have worked faithfully to
get the various routes into the best
possible shape.

LONDON, Feb. ".Private Harry
Jones, the well known Cardiff boxer,
lias returned home to recuperate from
wounds received in the battle on the
Meuse, where he underwent many ad
ventures as a member of the South
Wales Border regiment.
After passing unhurt through the re
treat from Mons, in which his battalion
was badly cut up, Jones's Jaw, broken
last spring in his ring contest with Dal
Roberts, was rebroken by the recoil of
his rifle. This laid him up for a few
weeks, although he lost no time getting
back to the front. One of the incidents
of the retreat was this. Jones was
holding an off'cer's horse, when a shell
carried away the animals hindquarters,
leaving the head and forelegs in his
"1 knew after that I wasn't to he
killed", said the boxer.
His most surprising adventure was
his escape from German captors.
While fighting on the Meuse, Jones
got lost and fell into the hands of five
Germans. It chanced that all the five
had lived in London and spoke English
well, and one had an English wife and
seven children in Kngland. Jones'
ability to make himself entertaining at
least procured him good treatment. The
captors kept a close watch on him until
late that night, but grew drowsy Just
as a thick fog came on, which enabled
Jones to make a dash after he had
wriggled away a few yards. Running
into the French lines, Jones there
chanced upon Tiger Smith, a famous
boxer in his day who defeated Gunner
Moir for the championship of England.
Hearing from the French that two
German spies had been seen in a wood
nearby, the two veterans of the prize
ring started out after them. They
bagged the two spies and brought them
to camp.
Jones was later wounded in the knee
by a rifle ball, and Invalided to Eng
land. He intends to return to the front
as soon as cured..
Fighting blood runs in Jones' veins,
for he met in the trenches along the
Meuse his two brothers for the first
time since the South African war. One
of the brothers is the champion middle
weight boxer of the British army and

Only Twenty-One Working Days Left
for Work of Congress
WASHINGTON. Feb. 7. The fate of
the government ship purchase bill
whith is obstructing the progress of
the senate is still uncertain with twenty-one
working days remaining in the
life of the sixty-third congress. The
president and administration leaders
must decide whether the fight for It
will continue until passed or congress
adjourns on March 4, because republi

are prepared to talk indefinitely.
The present situation centers nn the
pending motion of Senator Clarke, an
opponent to the bill, to recommit with

expect to lose this fight forty-seven to
forty-eight. If this happens Monday
or Tuesday they plan a motion by Sen

committee from consideration of Gore's
amended ship bill similar to the origin

operate to force the republicans to con
