The contract for the paving of Four teenth street around Logan Park with asphalt has been awarded to the Cran ford Paving Company, but no orders have yet been given by the Commission ers for the starting of the work, not withstanding the request of the citizens of Anacostla that the park burroundlngs be improved before the llag-ralslng cere monies of September 30. If present plans are Washington automobile racing enthu siasts will soon, have an opportunity to t,ee "Wild Bob' Burman, holder of many world's records, In action with his big 200-horBepower "Blltzen" Benz. W. H. Wellman, who Is associated with E. A. Moross In the promotion of automobile meets, is in the city today. making preliminary arrangements for a big meet to be held at tho Benning track an Saturday, July 22. Application for a sanction for the meet has been iade to the contest board of tho American Automobile Association, and it is expected to be granted tomorrow. A fine bunch of events has been pre pared, and the oulook is for the best automobile racing Washlngtonlans have ever seen. Several events at Ave and ten miles for cars of various classifica tions will comprise the first part of the rrogram, and it 1b then expected Bur man will try out his big foreign ma chine for a track record. Tho wind-up will be a 60-mlle race for two classes 'from 231 to 450 cubic inches piston dis placement, and from 450 to 600 inches piston displacement. This race promised to be a thriller, as many of the cars that will compete are record holders, while their pilots are daring and take all sorts of chances tn crder to win. An Australian pursuit race and a noielty race may also be added. Some of the events will be limit ed to Washington amateur drivers and every opportunity, will be afforded them to show their friends what they can do with a machino on a circular race track. In addition to Burman, it is planned to bring Blllle Knlpper, Hugh Hughes, Grainor and home of the other crack drivers to this meet. Entry blanks will be Issued within the next few days. It has been a number of years since an automobile race meet has been held on the Benning track, and it is likely the course will be thronged during the meet. Mr. Wellman will go over to New York tonight to confer with Mr Moross, and will return Tuesday to make final arrangements. Motorists ' throughout the Eastern part of the country are Interested In Representative Hobson's bill appropria ting $250,000 for making a preliminary survey and estimates of cost of con struction of a highway from Niagara Fall" to New Orleans. The proposed road Is to be known as the Clay-Jackson memorial highway in commemora tion of the patriotic services of Henry Clay and Andrew Jackson. "Wild Bob" Burman Is the holder of more world's speed records than anv other automobile driver. He has travel ed faster than any otlier man has traveled on any course. All of the re- By HARRY WARD, carried out, cords made by Burman have been made .f.l- ,L- OHA t.nwAVn,A,. T71lf wAn' Tin. Willi lilt: WilUiDV,iJnW AJtihCAl AJVUA, equipped with a Remy magneto and Firestone tires. A motorist who has large experience in touring gives this good advice: "When stopping for any cause the automoblllst should bring the car oyer to one side of the road so that it will be out of the way of other traffic. In doing this a position should be taken up so that when the car is started tgaln there will be no difficulty in get ting under way. In bringing the car to the roadside the driver not oi allows others the use of theroad, but pro tects himself from being run into or hindered while making repairs, etc. On the other hand, drivers who are other wise considerate sometimes remain In or near the center of the road, if the stop Is an Involuntary one. and com mence repairs, hindering the other cars from passing and running the risk of being hit." According to advices received by the Pope Automobile Company, the Oak land car, with Harold Bauer at the wheel, continues to pile up victories in hill climbing events around the country. At a recent climb at Colum bia. S C. Bauer captured two firsts with his machine, one of them being the free-for-all event. This makes eight firsts and one second so far for Oakland cars this season. "In connection with the recent flight over Boston made- by Earle Ovlngton, the aviator, a somewhat interesting Incident developed," said R. C. Smith, president of the Overland-Washington Motor Company. "Ovington's flight was made in a contest for an Overland runabout presented by the AVlllvs-Overland Company. During the flight Ovington dropped a card bearing information as to why his flight was undertaken, requesting an acknowledgement from whoever should find the card. A week later the card was picked up at York Beach. Me The distance from the scene of the flight was o'er eighty miles, showing how far the message was wafted before It reached the earth." An Interesting change in the person nel of the automobile trade has Just been made known in 'the announcement that W. McK. White has resigned -as adovtrlsing manager of the Premier Mo tor Mfg. Company, of Indianapolis, to be come associated with Alfred Reeves and Montgomery Hallowell in the adver tising department of the United States Motor Company. Mr. White is well known in automo bile circles, having been associated prominently with the industry for the past six years. At one time he was automobile editor of the Philadelphia Evening Tlmas. MEXICAN ED ;b DttE HERE TUESDAY He -Arrives in New York and Sends Word He Will Come on at Once. MADERO IN DISPUTE WITH GEN. QROZCO ' Mexican Leader Recuses Audience to Envoy From For mer Lieutenant, and Masses Say He Is Jealous. Serious Break Threatened. Senor Gllberto Crespo y Martinez, the new Mexican ambassador to tne United States, is in New York, city, where he landed from the Amerlka, of the Ham burg line, yesterday. A telegram from him to Senor Pereyra, charge diaffaires of the Mexican embassy, dated today, says he will leave for Washington soon. Senor Crespo is expected in the city Tuesday. Senor Pereyra today gave out a state ment from the Mexican acting secre tary of foreign affairs, Senor Bartolome Carbajal. Senor Carbajal telegrahped this and other Mexican embassies to an nounce tho following: "The condition of this country is much better, and the disbanding of the revo lutionary forces Is progressing rapidly. We hope and expect that It will shortly be brought to a conclusion. "Mexico Is now excellently situated as respects Its economic condition. As an example of this may be cited the fact that when De la Barru. became president the reserve fund In the treas ury was 62,000,000 pesos. It is now 63,000,000 pesos, although but little time has elapsed. "Industrial conditions and the labor questions are no longer vexatious." Senor Pereyra said he believed the above "authoritative statement" would bring reassurance to thousands of Americans who have investments in Mexico. The new ambassador to the United States from Mexico will probably drop one of his names after arrival here. At present, like many Mexicans, he uses a double family name. Crespo is his father's name; Martinez the name of his mother's family When one says Senor Crespo y Martinez," it is as if one were to say "Mr. Brown and Jones," this sort of combination sounding rather extraordinary to Anglo-Saxon ears. Senor Zamacona e Ynclin, Senor Cres po's predecessor as ambassador here, dropped the second name soon after arriving in Washington. In his case the "y," which means "and," was changed to an "e" because the second name itself began with a "Y " Senor Crespo was a mining engineer before he entered the diplomatic serv ice. He has been in this country as a commissioner to expositions, but never as a diplomat, and so far as the mem bers of the embassy here know has not visited Washington. He was stationed at Havana before Vienna, from which last place he is transferred to America. MEXICO CITY, July 9. Relations be tween General Pascuelo Orozco, tho popular idol of the 'people, and Madero, are hourly becoming more strained. The refusal of Madero to receive Gen. Gon zale Cuellar last night, when he arrived at Chihuahua bearing letters from Orozco, has been seized upon by the popular voice as proof that Madero is Jealous of Orozco. Madero last night admitted that Judge Emllio Vazquez, the minister of the in terior, Intends to resign before the elec tions. This tends to confirm the re ports that the Madero and Gomez fac tions are in dispute. A junction of the forces of the secretary of the interior with those of Jorge Vera EstanoL for mer minister of education, to support Estanol for the presidency In the com ing elections is anticipated. Opposition is apparent generally to the Madero-Gomez ticket, and Estanol contltfues publishing letters bitterly at tacking Madero. He is regarded as the strongest candidate yet in the field, and has. a strong following, which the sup port of the minister of the Interior will materially strengthen. Estanol is the first Mexican of prominence to openly oppose Madero. Strike Subsiding.. The strike troubles In the City of Mexico are gradually subsiding. Rioting is less frequent, and all labor differences have been practically settled save those of the matchmakers and the letter car riers. The postmen's strike ( had been settled once, but strike talk was revived when the telegraph messengers were given caper, and the postmpn were not. Although the active disorder of tho factions throughout the county Is sub siding -with the approach of the elections, the leaders who are erdcav&rlng to solesce the factions, before tho new President of Mexico is named, are ex periencing much difficulty through in ternal strife among the leaders of the different parties. General Cuellar, who Is the chief of Orozco's staff, arrived here early last night. The letters he bore related to the trouble between the leaders, and It is thought proposed plans for settlement of the disputes. But when Madero re fused him an audience, he left for Cull can. Orozco believes that Madero refuses him permission to come to Mexico City because Madero knows that Orozco is the Ideal of the lower classes, and that his presence will detract from Madero's popularity. Whether this be true or not. the con servative element here declare that Ma dero is loosing in popularity. Cartoons are appearing in the newspapers, por traying Madero giving government of fices to his many relatives, and rumors Insist that a split in the provisional cabinet is pending. Impugn Motives. The motives of both federals and the Maderlsts in the late revolution were lmpunged by Gen. Egula Lis, second in command of the artillery division of the war department General Lis was high In the federal forces and distin guished himself at the battle of Casa Grande. His utterances were made at a banquet last night ield in his honor. He said: "The Federals never fought for Diaz, or for the federal government. They fought because they had the nerve to fight. The Maderlsts fought for everything except the liberty of Mexico." Senor de la Barra declared today that the Madero army, with the exception of a picked force of 6,800 men whom they are holding to replenish the force of rurales, has been disbanded. These men were not In the engage ment at Iguala Friday, between Gen eral Figueroa and General Salgado.
