bilt Cup Attracts Many
There is every Indication that the
great automobile show at the Shrine
auditorium will be a financial success
to the exhibitors nnd one long to be
remembered by the public. The crowd
that attended the opening Monday
night has heralded the merits of the
show, broaucast and the attendance
Tuesday, day and night, ran. into the
thousands. There is not a dull , mo
ment at this big show. Two orches
tras enliven the scene with music and
the hustle and bustle of visitors and
exhlbtors adds action that keeps the
great crowds good-natured.
The Beveral sales reported as the re
sult of the first night have inoculated
the public with the "buying virus,"
and a score of sales -were reported for
the second day. The handsome Co
lumbia electric exhibited by the Cali
fornia Auto company has been sold
to George r Shugars, the top manufac
turer, as a Christmas present to his
wife. A Columbia victoria was also
sold to D. W. Stroud of Lake street.
A fore-door Warren-Detroit was Bold
to Frank Barman of Inglewood. The
Kissel Kar people have done excep
tionally well, for a car was sold to C.
L. Williams of San '"Diego, and an
agency, with order, for six cars for im
mediate delivery, was closed with the
New State Auto-Aerial company of
Phoenix. The Halladay Motor Car
company reports sales of two Halla
ilay 40s to Judge Richards and to a
prominent official of the Mexican Pe
troleum company. The Inter-State
people Tuesday night sold a handsome
gray torpedo to H. D. Roe of Pomona.
Roger Steams of the Standard Motor
Car company has the longest list of
sales to his credit, as follows: Ford
touring cars to Dr. C. D. Baker, Holly
wood; A. S. Strain, Whlttler road;
Watson D. Otis, Pasadena; C. A. Car
penter, V. A. Mitchell and ; the Los
Angles Gas company. Also roadsters
.to H. Hanson, Pasadena, and James
Scott of (Syracuse, N. T., who is tour
ing the const for \ the winter.' . --h } : '«
\V i ' 'ACCESSORIES SHOWN . '.' ,
The automobile accessories exhibits
are also claiming much attention. The
Weinstock-Nlchols company has in op
oration two •of ' the . large 6000 C. P.
electric headlights, lighted direct from
magnetos. • Chanslor & Lyon have an
excellent display, but are laying much
effort on their, new agency line—auto
graph oils. The "spots-off" polish, peo
ple have four boys in uniforms demon
strating • their polish on the show cars
on the floor/ Martin shock absorbers
have , sprung into sudden prominence
since their success on the winning cars
of' the Phoenix race and the Santa
Monica race. The selling agency has
been taken over by the Halllwell com
pany, which is agent for ! Warner
speedometers,' and both lines have a
good showing at this booth.
Tom Carrigan is the biggest man at
the show, and is doing the glad-hand
ing In the place devoted to Pratt-Elk
hart cars this week. ••
The non-stop run of the Warren-De
troit touring car, which for the time of
the show will exhibit its endurance
powers, is a prime favorite with show
visitors, for the car pulls up at the
auditorium every thirty minutes and
takes the visitors out on a little sight
seeing trip. The car in the first two
days has covered 763 miles and used
but 5054 gallons of gasoline and eight
quarts of oil, which is an exceptionally
creditable performance considering the
number of stops the ear makes. Ob
servers, for the, car are, furnished by
the va 'lous city newspapers; and the
three drivers -work in eight-hour shifts.
Much is expected of "society night"
Thursday. Hundreds of advance tickets
have been sold, and a record breaking
crowd can be looked for.
. The battle-scarred racing cars that
fire on exhibition get much * of the pub-»
llc's attention; and the trophy cups
that are scattered among th.c exhibits
are many, hut the one most looked at
is the' Vanderbllt cup which for the
first time .has . been shown west of
Chicaero .
Several new lines of cars are shown
for the first time, but none of thorn
are prettier than the-American Forty.
Any person who contemplates buying
a- car can certainly have a wide range
of models from which to make a^selev
tlon at this bog- show. •
The commercial cars fill In the prac
tical side of the show, and every style
of car from the light ■ delivery to the
big five-ton truck Is shown. ,
The decoratlones of the halls elicit
much favorable comment, for the color
scheme is perfect. The car service In
reaching; frie building Is Rood, but hun
dreds of .private nutos line both sides
of Jefferson street, for blocks dally.
•The city fire department haw a chem
ical engine and a picked crew on hand
at all hours, no- every . possibility of
danger is guarded against.
Several delayed exhibits will be in
stalled today,,and every.foot of avail
able i space for % show space will be
taken. : The doors open at 10 o'clock

LONDON. Dec. 13.—There were for
ty-two pollings In the British elections
today, but results In only six were an
nounced tonight. No change was re
corded In these six. The coalitiion,
therefore, has one gain to the good.
Party feeling continues strong in
Cork, where there are conflicts daily
between opposiing factions. David
Sheeny, M. P., In a riot today, was
■truck by a stone and so badly injured
that ho was unconscious for some
iimo. No less than one hundred per
sons have been surgically treated In
the Cork infirmary since the elections
began. Eighty were admitted In one
night.
Philip Snowden, Socialist member
for Blackburn, announced that after
the veto question has been disposed
of the Laborites. would press for the
passage of an elaborate reform bill to
abolish plural voting, to which he
ascribed - the Unionist successes In
many districts. ■ ■
Right Hon. R. B. Halldane, secretary
of war, spesfking at Gullano tonight,
denied that the Liberal party had any
covenant or bargain with Redmond,
and on being asked what would hap
pen if Redmond refused acquiescence
in the home rule bill, said It would be
much the- worse for Ireland If she re
jected the offer. : •-•."■■
The Liberals, he said, could not alter
their terms because somebody hap
pened to be dissastlsfled. . \
JMutterings of a storm in the Union
ist party over, Balfour*s leadership
are ''heard'in an editorial in the Morn
ing Post, the chief tariff reform organ,
which characterizes Balfour's refer
endum proposal '■ as unfortunate ana
impracticable and inspired by Joseph
Chamberlain's enemies. ■
The Post says: "The faction at
whose behest a fair chance of victory
for tariff reform was thrown away are
now worth a hundred votes in a single
constituency. Clearly the Unionists
must retrace their steps and tariff re
formers must insist on having a clear
course to run In their association with
the Unionist party."

INDIAN, AGED 115,
DIES IN THIS CITY
Metowir, Who Thrived in Glow of
Three Centuries, Passes to
Happy Hunting Ground
Threo centuries shed their glow on
Metowir, an Indian of the Kowakapl
tribe, who answered the call of the
chief to the happy hunting ground In
JjQB Angeles yesterday morning at the
age of 116 years. '
Metowir died about daybreak at the
home of his granddaughter, Mrs. O. A.
Pachlto, 310 South Prlchard street.
Born In 1795 on what is now the
United States Indian reservation at
Mesa Grande, in San Diego county,
Metowir was a "native son" of the first
water. He passed his entire lifetime
in California and saw the closing or
the eighteenth century, the dawn and
passing of the nineteenth and the flit
ting of the first cycle of the twentieth
century, the greatest to him of
them all.
Metowir was one of the most notable
of the surviving Indians who went
through the long and hard struggle
against the encroachments of the white
man and one of the few -who 'have
passed thq century mark living under
the-'new civilization imposed by Uncle
Sam on the Enervations.
Ono of the aged Indian's last acts
was to make a great bow and a dozen
feathered arrows for his great-grand
son, Philip Fachito, 7 years old.
Hardly before tho meridian of his
life had' been passed, Metowir saw the.
civilization of the Spaniards, who
brought Christianity and the missions,
give way to another race, of whites,
who brought only'a lust for gold.
SAW lIAI.I.KVS COUHT TWH'K
During the course of 115 years he
sbw the greatest nation grow up on
what vu formerly the rod men's .soil.
He saw Halley's comet twice, in 1835
and 1010.
He heard echoes of a great struprfile
between the whites of tho north and
the south over a black race, held in
servitude.
He saw his own rare, at first the foe,
finally become the charge of tho white
man, and saw it thrive and prosper
on the unique "reservations."
Finally, hs the rrowning act of his
life, he saw a flying machine circle
over Los Angeles.
Metowir was living with the Kowh
ka.pl tribe near San Diego when the 1
Spanish missionaries arrived early in
the nineteenth century. Already chris
tened by his tribe as Metowir, meaning
"hard fighter," the Spaniards taught
him Christianity, translated Metowir
to Duro, tho Spanish equivalent of
hard, and prefixing Antonio as a Chris
tian name, thus equipped him for the
new civilization which they brought.
"The Indian, however, was not con
verted and built many a tepoe tiro to
celebrate a victory against the strange
new white*, who were flocking in from
tho east,in search.of the yellow metal*
Mrs. Pachlto says that he told her of
inniiy a scalp ha had wrested from the
.white Invaders. ■ ,:,
Three months ago Metowlr came I"
Los Angeles from tim reservation ■at
Kan Diego .to visit his granddaughter.
Up to a year ago tho aged Indian did
active work every day at tho reiervu
11on and quit only .because of an acci
dental cut he received on the leg with
an ax while cutting wood. «
■ The funeral of Metowir will ho held
.it 9 o'clock this morning . from the
Sacred Heart church, the Rev. Father
(Say officiating. The Los Angeles Un
dertaking company of Avenue Twenty
one and Pasadena avenue have charge
of the funeral. Interment, will» be in

OIL TANK EXPLODES;
LOSS IS ABOUT $1500
An explosion of oil in what is known
as the "Road" oil tank of the Indus
trial Oil company at Santa Fe avenue
and Joy street, blew the top off the
big tank at 1 o'eloik thin morning, and
for a time threatened to cause a serious
conflagration. The lire was prevented
spreading, however, and was extin
guished after about $1600 In damage
had been done.

LORIMER VERDICT
WON'T BE HURRIED
Senate Will Act with Becoming
Dignity on Whitewash
ing Report
(Special to The Herald)
. WASHINGTON, Dec. 13— The sen
ate committee on privileges and elec
tions will make no effort to hurry the
report of the subcommittee that inves
tigated the charges that Senator Wil
liam Lorimer of Illinois secured his
seat by means of bribery. Chairman
Burrows of the committee stated today
that no special meeting had been called
to receive the report, and that no spe
cial meeting would be called. The reg
uiar meeting day of the committee is
Saturday.
That the whitewash administered by
the subcommittee in its report will be
approved by the committee on privil
eges and elections is nut seriously
doubted here, the belief being that the
report as it comes from the full com
mittee will give Senttor Lorimer a
clean bill of political health.
The senate was virtually forced to
make tho inquiry into Lorimer's elec
tion by tho sensational confession
made by the members of the Illinois
legislature that sent Lorimer to the
senate. Several members confessed
that they had been promised and re
ceived money for voting for Lorimer
as well as receiving money from the
"jackpot" which was maintained to
pay for special legislation and to which
"the Interests'' contributed, according
to their stories. The'name of Lorimer
was linked with this "jackpot" Hind
In several of the confessions.
It was apparent that the senate took
up tho investigation of tho charges
with reluctance, and, the whitewash-
Ing report was a foregone conclusion
with those who profess to know the
inner workings of art- 'S in the nation
al capital. It wan said today that the
committee and the senate would wash
their hands of the affair as soon as
possible without showing any undue
haste, and without treading on the
toes of any of the members, including
the member under investigation.
CALIFORNIA CONGRESSMEN

WASMINIITON, Dee. 13. -The Cali
fornia delegation today concentrated
its effortH toward Retting an early voto

"Our people are dead In earnest in
this matter of holding an international
