Highway and Park Commission
ers Working in Harmony with
Automobile Associations
Solving the roads problem which has
followed In the wako of the automo
bile, and the consequent greater use of
tho highways. Is not us difficult by far
as seemed to be the case In the early
days of tho coming of the motor-driven
vehicle, which now finds its need even
gnnter on farm than in city and town.
The highway traveler who goes a
distance is primarily interested In the
Improvement and maintenance of city
■treeta, pork roads and trunk lines
connecting the various centers of pop
ulation, as in pr.-iotlcally every tour
It is necessary to pass over these three
classes of highways, and It is partic
ularly aggravating in many instances
when entering a city to find an Intoler
able condition of the city streets that
destroys very largely the pleasure of
motoring. In many Instances this con
dition Is due to lack of foresight in pro
viding sufficient funds by the city
authorities, and also to lack of knowl
edge of how to make the proper re
pairs, although the official In charge Is
almost Invariably anxious and willing
to properly Improve and repair the
streets of his municipality.
It is not unusual In motoring
through the many beautiful parks sit
uated near large cities in this country
to travel over park roads which wore
formerly smooth and pleasant, but are
now filled with holes, or dusty and
muddy, all showing the effects of Ill
considered methods of dust preventa
tlves. The various park commissioners
throughout the country are no doubt
anxious and willing tha^ their roads
and boulevardl be dustless, smooth and
pleasant to travel over, but there an:
so many different methods of treating
these roadß that unless these park com
rhlssloners have made a special Ktudy
of the subject, they are apt to adopt
ways of improving these roads which
have proved failures, and which add to,
rather than lessen the discomforts to
which the user of the road la put.
It has frequently been said that the
money which has been expended out
side of the cities and villages on the
Improvement of the so-called stata
rot'ids, or main trunk lines, is wasted
because the roads are not properly
maintained after being built. In many
Instances the criticisms are well found
ed, and the millions of dollars ex
pended on road construction have be^n
as good as squandered, because tho
roads have been allowed to deteriorate
and to. wear out without being properly
cared for.
The system adopted In France Is
known as tho patrol system, and the
samo method has been adopted In New
York state, where over 2500 miles of
macadam ronrtg have been constructed
and about 800 patrolmen are at work
repairing all the minor defects fn
the highways. Each patrolman covers
about five miles of territory. He Is
provided with a horse and cart, filled
with tho various sizes of stone and
equipped with the necessary imple
ments to repair all minor defects.
Although thla systo^m hag been In
operation scarcely a year, its economy
has already been demonstrated, as in
the contract system of repairs nn al
lowance of 20 per cent at least must be
made for the contractor's profit, 10 per
cent for supervision and 10 per cent for
contractor's office, clerical and super
vision expense. Thus at first hand at
least 40 per cent Is saved In the course
of making these repairs, and instead
of having In many cases Inexperienced
contractors to do the work It Is In
charge of patrolmen who are retained
In their positions year after year and
become expert and proficient, not only
in the making of macadam road re
pairs, but In the application of surface
compounds, which alleviate dust, and
In resurfacing roads with bituminous
binders. No state highway commis
sioner can afford to take the responsi
bility of expending vast sums of money
on the trunk lines of his state without
being conversant and familiar with the
patrol system.
The Haynes Auto Pali's company has Just
been advised that a shipment of 1911 Haynes
cars are en route for San Francisco and should
arrived here by the first of October. These
cars, which are of the fore-door type and
constructed along the most approved lines,
represent the beat that this season offers In
the way of refinement.
A shipment of the new model Haynes seven
passenger cars will also soon leave the fac
tory for the coast. According to eastern re
ports, these machines are a revelation of speed
and power, and are meeting with widespread
The Haynes Auto Sales co:npany reports a
large number of advance sales of 1911 cars of
all types, and the first few shipments will bo
ont on almost Immediate delivery. An order
tor four 1911 cars has Just been received from
E. L. Perry writes from Santa Barbara
that autoista going up the coast to Santa
Maria or farther should take the Ban Mar
cos pass rathor than the Gavlota pass, as
the latter Is In decidedly bad condition, and
that the former route cuts off more than
twenty miles of travel.
Owing to road work. Acting Secretary
Wllletts of the Southern California Auto
mobile association states that the best
route from Los Angeles to San Diego Just
now Is via Elslnoro. the Rainbow mountains
to Oceanstde. and thence via coast line.
A timely suggestion to road supervisors
Is that In cutting drainage ditches across
roads that they be cut at an angle, as It
means much to the safety of motor cars
and lessens the chance of broken parts.
I. Q. Lewis, manager of the recently or
ganized Buffalo Motor Truck company, re
ports their first week's business as a sale
of a twenty-passenger sightseeing car to

machine more than 6000 miles. Is the rec
ord of Ooorge D. Sanborn, a prominent real
estate man of Sonoma county. The record
so Impressed Sanborn that he at once pur
chased a second car of Uie same make,
which he has long needed In his business
on account of the increase of business he
has dona since this first machine.
I. W. Hellman of this city reported to
Manager Lemmon of the Firestone Tire and
Rubber company that he has Just worn out
one of the rear Firestone casings on his
Rtudoliakor car after 9500 miles service.
The last 1000 miles were run on the bare
fabric just to see how lons the tire would
last In that condition. The mate to this
one on the left rear of the machine has
run exactly the same number of mllea and
looks food for 8000 miles more.
Announcement Is made that the Garford
company of Elyrla. 0.. and the Kissel Motor
Car company of Hartford, \V!s., have Just
been granted licenses under the Solden
patent number 649.160. There are now
eighty-three different makes of car*
Unsurpassed as Educational Ex
hibits for the Public's
Th« national road races at ElKln, 111., aid !
more than demonstrate tho meriu of the cars
and drivers, according to Will 11. Brown, vice
president of the Willys-Overland company.
"It was the means of bringing automobile
men of the trade together aa at a Bhow, and
plans for the winter's activities were discussed
and given an Impetus," Bays Mr. Brown.
Chairman of the A. A. A., H. M. Butler, de
clared that the outlook for this winter Is good, i
and that the annual shows will he more at- I
tractive than ever before. The contest wason |
Is now drawing to a close and the mind and
activities of tha trade men turn to the Indoor
"I agree with Mr. nutler that an outdoor
show could not well bo held, although ther« i
are arguim-nts In favor of It. One big point
made by Mr. Butler is that during the winter
months the automobile show affords an ave
nue through which the attention of the publla |
can be directed and sustained in the automo- i
bile. Then, too, during the winter months
persons do not object to being indoors and
enjoy the comfort and educational benefits of
walking around the displays. Factories to
day produce attractive exhibits and beautifully
polished chassis that give the dealer* an Ideal
chance to explain with deliberation the merits
of the various makes.
"An outdoor show In the autumn would com*
before the new models were ready, and It
would also call for some kind of contests.
Such contests would detract from the educa
tional exhibits, would excite the spectators
and make it hard for them to get down to
'brass tacks' In tho study of cars.
"I believe with Mr. Uutlcr that thU will bs
a great year for shows. One big problem must
be solved, that of buildings large enough. I
do not favor cutting the size of the Individual
exhibits, but I believe separate shows for com
mercial and passenger cars advisable."
An indication of the healthy condition of
tho automobile business In San DleKo Is
shown by a report from Morrow. Loomls &
Co. of the establlshlne of an Inter State
agency for San Diego county with W. W.
Norton of San Diego. Mr. Norton closed
his nngotlatlons on Friday the 16th. after
an exhaustive test covering the period of a
week with an Inter State "Torcedo" on the
bad roads and grades of San Diego county.
Mr. Norton cold his first car within twenty
four hours after securing the .agenoy and
in three days sold three more, or a car
a day. This Is an astonishing record at
this season of tho year, particularly wtth
a new car In a new territory. It not only
speaks well for the car. but exceptionally
well for the general business conditions In
San Diego.
The lrf>rd Motor Car company on Friday
sold a new model 40-horsepower Studo
taker-Garford's to B. Getzoff. the tailor.
The car is painted a dark maroon with
