STONE AND GORE HELP LAFOLLETTE Wisconsin Senator Breaks Record, Speaking More Than Llghteen HoursAnd With Assistance of Other Two Senators Will Win ihe Victory. Washington. May 30. The end of the filibuster in the Senate against the compromise currency bill Is in sight. Senaior Core will talk about two hours and will be followed by Clay and Bacon, who will be reached late this afternoon and it is hoped final adjournment will take place some time tonight. The three man filibuster gB:nst the adoption by the Senate of the confer ence report containing the compro mise currency bill which began yes terday at noon, was still in progress In that body twenty-four hours after wards and no one . ... .orl y or Information cou'V be found who would undertake t J say when It might terminate. La. Follette concluded his speech shortly after seven this morn ing and was Immediately succeeded by Stone on ihe floor of the Senate. Stone still held the floor at noon today. Following the example of La Follette Stone spoke leisurely and read copiously from extracts of public documents and newspaper. Unlike La Kollette he spoke in such a low tone that he could not be heard at any distance and this method of speaking elicited numerous protest from the .yu;ci but soine N. .hti Itiu'ljii'jM than a temporary effect How long Stone will speak no one will undertake to say but It Is ar ranged that he will be followed by LA KOLLETTE. Gore, the blind senator from Okla homa. As he cannot read from docu ments It is not believed he will con sume as much time as La Follette or Stone. It is predicted therefore that the end of the filibuster will be reached some time tonight. Washington, May 80. Whatever else may have been accomplished hy Senator I-a Follette In his filibuster against the adoption of the confer ence report on the currency bill, he gained the championship. At 7:03 this morning he yielded the tloor to Stone of Missouri, after having spok en almost continuously eighteen hours and 43 minutes and his voice seemed almost as fresh as when he started. If Senator Stone and Gore, the latter being accredited with willing ness to a-ssist In tho filibuster, can do as well, the filibuster is far from the end. This Is not taking into calcula tion the now apparently erroneous report that Senator Jeff Davis was to take a hand. The Itepublican leaders apparently have no program other than to try and wear ou: the filibusters. The pre vious long record for a long speech waj made by former Senator Alien of Nebraska, who opposed repeal of the silver purchasing clause of the Sher man act nd he was ailed by other senators who took much strain from his voice by frequently reading ex tracts from documents. La Follette had no such assistance, as the old rule that a senator cannot speak twice on same subject on one legislative day was enforced. His ex ploit is all the more remarkable as his own party is wholly without sym pathy fur his effort anj he has but few supporters In the Democratic ranks. The night was one that will be long remembered. The heat In the cham ber was oppressive and the attempt to maintain a quorum prevented fifty odd senators now In the c.ty from I 'if A " X." ij ' iC3f? t - i si ' I. v ftakt it' t At ( 1 3v tWlw f WAV - VOpfT 1 ARMY OE DEAD GROWS STEADILY EACH YUR Unidentified Who Sleep In National Cemeteries Small Per Cent of Missing.

EVENT Owners and Guests Make Trip to Coyote Canyon and Keturn without Single Mishap. DEMONSTRATION OF ROAD IMPROVEMENT Auto Enthusiasts Join !n Making First Trial a Success and Will Arrange AUother Trip In Near Future -Club Expects to Help the Roads. The Albuquerque Auto club mad its initial run tins morning with six teen machines In line, carrying about forty men, half of whom were guest of the club. The machines went to Coyote canyon and returned without mlslvjp and every one apeared to en joy the trip immensely. The autos formed In line shortly after ten o'clock this morning at Sec i.nd street and Gold avenue. Tha owners, secured their line positional by drawing numbers from a hat. Kach machine, as Its number waa called, swung Into place. One auto owner drew number 13 and needles tc say he had all kinds of trouble before he finally gut his auto Into line. He expected nothing less than a puncture on the nip, but de.spite his hoodoo, he returned to the city with out mishap. However, to guard against trouble in the future, there will be no more number thlrteens In the line. M. W, Flournoy's big touring car took the lead, Mr. Flournoy havlac u.'u aatfee V JKi'llU pro ceeded west oa Gold avenue lo tiiattx street, where they turned north to Central and thence west again, mak ing the loop about the city park. They then proceeded to Cent raj avenue and headed due east. A good sized crowd tathered to see the start. "I didn't know Albuquerque had so many autos," said one man, as th .machines began to form into Una. The auto made quite an imposing; appearance, although considerably less than half of the autos owned la this city took part In the run. The route followed by the autolsts was east on Central avenue to Walter street, thence south to Silver avenue, and thence east again, until the ms was reached, when the autos swung back onto the mesa extension of Cen ral avenue at the University. The speed was then Increased and the long line of "devil wagons" raced to wards the mountains. Hove raj minor accidents caused one or two of the machines to stop for a minute or so, but there was little delay. Several of the slower makes of machines, could not keep their positions In line and strung out for half a mile in the rear. The faster machines reduced speed so that the formation Wa not oroken. The Hist atop was made at the Wayside Inn, east of the city. There a rest of about fifteen minutes was tak en, after which the autos were drawn Into close formation and a phcto grsphor took a sirapshot of the party. The run was continued to Coyote canyon and the autolsts then took a long swing around the road to Ilia south, returning across the mesa loud lo the original route and thence Into the city. The trip was one of the most enjoyable events of tha year. Tho air was fine, the sun waa just warm enough to be comfortable, and the view of the great ltto Grande valley from the mesa was as pleasing a sight as could be desired. One tiling which the trip demon strated was the case, with which the mesa road could be built up and made one of the finest driveways In the southwest tor either autos or car riages. Work bus already been tw-gua on University lull to redu t ihe grade and when the tu.-k Is completed U will do a gnat deal to popularize th mesa road for autos. There was a great deal of auto talk . on trie trip and the various auto own- .. ers had an opportunity to see th i woik of the different styles and makia of auios. It is believed that the auto club will result In making Albuquerque a popular place for au tomobile entli usiasts and with the ad dition of g iod ri'a.i, uuiomobiling will prove a great iiltiacliuu. Colonel Sellers, who oiiginatej the auto club idea for Albuquerque, was on the Job today, and talked automo bile and good roads from AlbuqiK rquu to Coyote canyon and back. Mayor Fel x Lester, president G. L. Brooks of the Commercial duo. hkf of Police Thomas McMillin. news papermen and a number of bus nes nun took part In the run upon tha Invitation of the auto owners. The auto club expects to render a good account of Itself this fa 1 in en tertaining the many prominent visit ors to the city and In showing them the country in this vicinity. The nl tlal run was a success in svry way and a credit to the auto club.
