Perry's New Ex
And Stock Mote -Here
According to a laconic telegram re
ceived from the Excelsior Manufac
turing Company yesterday morning.
Bob Perry, one of the greatest little
motorcycle riders in the game, is to
be the Excelsior factory entrant in
the Moose 200-mile motorcycle race
here next Monday.
Perry is to arrive with two ma
chines, one a port or eight valve and
the other a stock model, which the
racer will use in case the track ap-
race. 1 he tactory asked htm, he said.
xnit it was a useless request, for
once he knew, an Ex would be in
the race, with an event break with
the other factory entries, he would
work for all he was worth.
Terry and his two muchinles will
be here Saturday according to the
wire. Irately the trade journals have
been full of Perry's plans to build
Cxcelsior that will be faster
than anything yet constructed. It is
positively known that he has been at
the factory in Chicago ever since the
Venice race. So the probabilities are
that the Heap Big Paleface will
show some class in this long race.
"W" may hear from Girton and
Hoffer, the coast agents for the Ex
celsior." said Brown. "They have
some fast mechanism over there, and
also some brainy young riders. -

PRESCOTT, Ariz., May 24. For
three years. Prepcott has been develop
ing an annual entertainment which bids
fair to prove the summer classic of the
southwest. From avery humble start
in 1912, Prescott "Fnantier Day" has
grown until it is today the watchword
for square dealing and real range per
formance in everysection where sports
of the western range are reviewed.
This year, no deviation will be al
lowed from the resolve first made in
1912. that all comers, both contestants
;ind visitors, shall be treated with the
same regard and that prices for ac
commodacion will remain at the reas
onable rates prevailing at all seasons
in the Mile High City.

A. A. A. Makes Some Rules
Drivers Must Qualify Own Machines
INDIANAPOLIS. May 24. Rulings
of vital importance to the automobile
racing game have been handed down
by the American Automobile Associa
tion with, reference to cars entered lor
the next Indianapolis 500-mile race. '
The first is that wherever elimination
trials for a race are held, the driver or
relief driver of a car must qualify his
own machine, no man being allowed
to qualify more than one car. Pre-
iously. as in the case of Burman at
Indianapolis lat year, one man could
qualify as many machines as he '

the purpose, of squeezing in a fourth
car when three of the same make are
already eriteied. Under this ruling the
Harro'.n special entered in the Indian
apolis race must compete as a Maxwell,
and the Burman -Peugeot as a Peugeot.

Maxwell and one Peugeot from the
other important rulings, and these

Trying to be cheerful bust night.
Manager Jim Brown of the Tucson
club called up The Republican and
predicted better financial going for
the four, club circuit. He said the
deadwood had been heaved overboard,
and that from now on every club
will have to hustle only for its own
sake. Jim Brown is a hard headed
cuss with a lot of baseball savvy, and
mereiwhile he was bitterly disappointed
that the league could not go
through intact, he showed some of
that indomitable optimism that has
made him' (and all of the baseball
managers who possessed it), success
ful. The fact that there are now but
four clubs in the league may be
taken as a good, omen, for now Phoe
nix will have two less to lick before
nailing the 1915 pennant to the mast.
(Our brother scriljes in El Paso,
Tucson and Albuquerque, look the
other way. We are merely kidding).
But the Albuquerque-Phoenix series
will be just as good baseball as
though the submarine "Money" had
not hurled two torpedoes into the
hulks of two league teams.
We are glad to see Old Smiley and
Old Castle back in harness. They
operated nicely nt Acre City Sunday
and trimmed the villagers for the
at Prescott.
Scores of prominent riders have sig
nified their intention of competing at
Prescott, regardless of the fact that
no wages or guarantee arrangements
have been tolerated. A majority , of
these men feel that they can come and

George Ruffner and other prominent
cowmen of Yavapai county, take the
stand that Sheee outside entries need
not terrify local riders; that the puncher
fresh from the rodeo and acclimated to
the i.iile High elevation stands more
than an even chance and this is the
general feeling among Arizona cow
punchers, not a few of whom have al
