SiH' AUTO : RACES MARRED BY ACCIDENTS William Nelson Plunges Through Fence in Speeding Car and Is Badly Hurt Bee Kerscher Hurled From Fast Running Machine, but Es= capes Injury Continnptl front I'ncf 1 . supported by frail posts, installed, so :• that the likelihood of fatal accidents, in case a machine went through the .fence on the turn, would be minimized. ' But the outer fences were left, and ,-their heavy planking proved young '\u25a0 Nelson's undoing. Fernando Nelson, \u25a0the father, was a member of the Shriner track committee, and by a freck he was one of those that op posed the expense of installing cloth fences on the outer edges of the turns. Nelson lives with his wife and an 8 . months old pon at 696 Second avenue, Richmond. His mechanician, A. B. Bright, who Is 21 years of age, lives with his mother at 348 Twenty-fifth avenue. The 10 mile free for all handicap, \u25a0won by the Maxwell, driven by C. O. King, the race In which Kerscher hit the fence, was one of the most exciting events on the card, though the big crowd found something to bring them to their feet in nearly every contest. Kerscher was handicapped far behind Oldflcld, in his six cylinder Knox. He followed Barney Oldfield through nine f>f the 10 miles at a record clip, but in the ninth mile, when rounding the .first turn, met his mishap, when the *teerinpr knuckle snapped. His ma-» chine plowed into the ground as the front wheels spread, and stopped with in 30 yards, while Kerscher. turned two graceful somersaults and alighted without turning a hair. His machine •etayed where it was, but Kerscher was out. and, a few minutes later, was rid ing around with Oldfleld in his 200 Benz in the exhibition mile that was run off under 52 seconds. t Wins Pretty Race George Nelson, brother of theinjured driver, earlier in the day won what was perhaps the prettiest race of the meet, pulling away from his old rival, the '.Maxwell, in his sturdy Oakland car. Saturday the Maxwell, driven by Frank Free, took Nelson's measure In two \u25a0races, both of them, however, furnish ing close finishes. In the five mile race yesterday for class C cars listing from $1,201 to 11,600 Nelson took the event, pulling through the fiv sizzling rounds in the .good time of 5 minutes 32.75 seconds. The Maxwell revenged itself in the five mile free for all, though, winning from the Oakland by about the same narrow margin which had markd Its defeat earlier in the activities. The grandstand took a personal interest in this race also, and cheered wildly as the two machines tore along the home etreteh and strove for supremacy. Bar ney Oldfield started from scratch in this race in his Knox, but the Maxwell, Oakland and Ford, in the order named, held their handicaps too well for him to pass them. The Autocar and Buick, with Frank Free and Frank Murray at the wheels, : furnished an oxciting contest in the • race for cars listing from 51,601 to $2,000. tearing along wheel to wheel for four miles, when the Bulck went ahead, after being led until then. Vic tory went to Buick by a half length to the tune of 5 minutes 50 28-100 sec onds. *•\u25a0 ; Motor Cycle Contest In the motorcycle race, always one of the most hair raising exhibitions on the card, honors went to the Indian, driven by W. G. Collins, on the first try of the five mile contest. Balke, with his Thor, which Saturday took Collins" measure, felt that he hadn't • half tried, however, and proposed a special match race for $25 a side. Billy Hughson held the money and the two .. rivals again went over the. course. Xhis time honors \u25a0went decisively to The Thor, which pulled away from the s Indian at the start and increased the lead until the rare was never in danger. The time made^by Balke on his record cycle was 4 minutes and 37 •seconds for the five miles, which Is remarkable going. NEW YORK AND VIRGINIA, HOME OF PRESIDENTS Ohio Runs Close Third in Years in Office The Washington Post recently quoted \u25a0 Mr. Keyser of Pennsylvania as saying that New York can claim as many pres . dents as Virginia. The record as to -presidents is: Virginia five, Washing ton, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Tyler," 26 years; New York five. Van Buren, . Fillmore, Arthur, Cleveland, Roosevelt, 25 years; Ohio five. William Henry Har rison, Hayes, Garfleld. McKlnley. Taft. 33 years and one month at the end of Taffs term; Tennessee three, Jackson, Polk and Johnson, 15 years and 9 months; Massachusetts two, John Ad ams and John Quincy Adams, eight years; Illinois two, Lincoln and Grant, 12 years and one month; Louisiana, Tay lor, one year; New Hampshire, Pierce, four years; Pennsylvania. Buchanan, four years; Indiana, Benjamin Harri son, four years. S. Of Virginia's five presidents four were elected as such, Tyler serving out Harrisons terms. All of Ohio's five pres idents were elected as such, and of New York's five only three were chosen by the people for that office, the other two succeeding on the death of the presi dent. Johnson, one of Tennessee's three, was also elected vice president only. So' Ohio has had more elected presidents tiian any other state. All of Virginia's presidents except Tyler .were chosen for two terms, only one of those of Ohio was elected the second time and only one from New York. Lincoln and Grant of Illinois were twice elected. Of vice presidents New York has fur nished 10, five of whom became presi dent, two by election and three by suc cession. Massachusetts furnished three, Virginia two, Indiana three.' Kentucky two and South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Maine, .Tennessee. Illinois and New Jersey one each. Five presidents have died in office, three by the hands of an assassin. Six vice presidents, Clinton, Gerry, King, Wilson. Hendrickß and Hobart, died in office. The oath of office to King was administered in Cuba by special commission. Gerry died sud denly In » his carriage while driving down Pennsylvania avenue on his way to the capitol.

V., April 24.— Under a tent on the grassy slope of the Lang don plot in Woodlawn cemetery, with rain beating fiercely against" the can vas cover, a little group of mourners silently watched today as the body of Samuel L.. Clemens was lowered into an evergreen lined grave beside the bodies of his* wife and children. llcv. Samuel E. Eastman, pastor of Park church and a' close friend of the Clemens family, conducted a brief and simple service and Mark Twain's pil grimage was at an end. Tonight he lies sleeping under a grave piled high with flowers, the tributes of< friends from far and near. There were present at the cemetery only members of the family party, who came from New York with the body, a former governess of the- Clemens \ family, two of her friends, the sexton and half a dozen newspapermen. MARRIED IX SAME ROOM Services 'had previously been held at the residence of General Charles J. L»angdon, where 40 years ago Mark Twain married the general's sister. In keeping with Clemens' wish the cere mony was simple. There was no mu sic, no honorary pallbearers — just the brief address and prayer of Doctor Eastman. The body lay in state in the very parlor where the marriage of 40 years ago took place, and some of. those who attended the' wedding were there,to day to look for the last time upon the face of their friend. Neither Rev. Thomas K. Beecher nor Rev. Joseph Twitchell, who performed the cere mony, was present. Beecher died sev eral years ago and Twitchell was called to Hartford by the serious illness of his wife, who died this morning. FLOWERS FRO3I SCHOOL BOYS Among the. floral gifts was a beau tiful wreath bearing this inscription: "From s<jp boys of the Louisville male high school in remembrance of Mr. Clemens, \u25a0who has brightened their lives with innocent laughter and taught them squareness and grit .and compassion to the weak." The services at the house were pub lic, but the attendance was not large. Besides the funeral party that accom panied the body from Reading, the lit tle gathering Included only a few rela tives and old friends. TRIBUTE OF FRIENDSHIP Dr. Eastman 6aid in part: "We are not here at this time to speak of the great man whose going hence the whole world mourns, nor to claim for him that place in the halls of fame which only time can give. We are here to weep with those who weep, to give thanks with those whose own he was in the sacred bonds of human kin ship and family affection." After the little group had looked for the last time upon the features of the dead the coffln was closed and \u25a0was borne to a waiting hearse. * Outside, a few curious onlookers stood in " the rain as the procession started on its DANCING BLAMED FOR TUBERCULOSIS Pastime More Conducive to the Spread of Disease Than v Hygienic Conditions In the churches, schools and public halls thousands of persons were yes terday instructed in simple rules for the prevention of the spread of the dread white plague, in compliance with the program for Tuberculosis Sunday, as arranged by the local branch of the National Society' for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis. Every detail of the arrangements -was gone through with without a hitch and the special meetings called for the dis cussion proved greater successes than anticipated. h%i The Catholic churches all dedicated ; some part of their service to a short discussion of conditions that are favor able to the tuberculosis germ. Father Joseph McQuaide of Sacred Heart dio cese gave a long address on the subject during the 10 o'clock mass. He drew a comparison between the hy gienic conditions of tenement housing methods of large eastern cities and"the housing conditions of Telegraph hill and the poor Italian, quarter of this City, declaring that .local conditions were "castle_ like" in comparison. Throughout his address he laid stress on the dancing ' habit as more con- \u25a0 ducive to consumption in San Francisco than the city's actual hygienic condi- POIXTS OUT FALLACIES Rev. George C. Adams, addressing the congregation of the First Congre gational church, urged upon his hear ers to join the tuberculosis movement and help eradicate the evil. iHe said that for- many years people were in the common error ; the disease could not be cured and that they in vited the contagion by associating in timately and without 1 due precautions with those afflicted. His address ended with a comraendatjon of the educa tional movement tlfcat has for its ob ject the removal of, this error. Bernard M. Kaplan, rabbi of the Bush, street temple, gave a short talk on the subject, .pointing out that the disease was preventable and that all the people should unite in the com mon crusade that would lessen the chance of contagion by the exercise of ordinary care. Mrs. John F. Merrill^ speaking, be-, fore the Young- Women's Christian as sociation yesterday afternoon, referred to consumption as being the more dan gerous because people are inclined to regard it familiarly and . as(an old friend that had been _ with us for a long time. The lecture ended^wlth the statement -that were the people sud denly visited by a scourge as fatal as consumption now is the country, would be panic, stricken. ' PI.LPIT AND DOCTOR AGREE Doctor Voorsanger followed with - a strong address Inj which- he pointed out that, for the. first-; time in history .the clergy and medicine were united to at tain a common end.. He went deeply into the subject, showing the terrible inroads of the white plague. Lectures ; in Chinese were given in Chinatown, illustrated by stereopticon views. A greats amount of anti-tuber culosis literature was also distributed to the Chinese, all, of which was trans lated from the English.

With Mrs. Clemens and the children- he had spent many happy summers at Quarry Farm, on East Hill, overlooking the city, at the home of Mrs. Susan L. Crane,* Mrs. Clemens' sister. A. path from the Crane house winds through the wooded grounds to. the summer lodge which was Mark Twain's workshop. *Here he' wrote ."Roughing It," "A Tramp Abroad" and other works. *-~ Below this lodge, a short way down in the woods, Is another rustic'struc ture with barked roof, ; which \the author built for his chydren. Here may. still be seen many of the undis turbed playthings of the little ones. FRIENDSHIP AND MARRIAGE It was during the Quaker City ex pedition in 186?, which Mark Twain has immortalized^ in "The Innocents Abroad," that he met General Langdon, then a young man, the son of Jarvis ;Langdon, a distinguished and wealthy Langdon took kindly to young Clemens, and the intimacy which grew out of the meeting led to the mar riage of the author- with Olivia Lang don. "I saw her first," wrote Twain of his wifedn his autobiography, "in the form of an ivory miniature In hei brother Charles' stateroom on the steamer Quaker City, in the bay of Smyrna, in the summer of 1867, when she was in her twenty-second year. MEMORIAL TO HIS WIFE "I saw her; in -the flesh for the first time in New York on the following De cember. She. was slender and beautiful" and girlish, and she was both girl and woman. She remained both girl and woman to the last of her life." . V Over Mrs. Clemens' grave, alongside the fresh one made today, stands a stone engraved with, this epitaph: Warm summer sun, shine kindly here; Warm southern winds, blow softly here; Gree"?r»sod above, He light, lie light.

Twitchell, for nearly 50 years pastor of the Asjylum avenue Congrega tional church, died ear.ly today at the Hartford hospital following an opera tion for stomach trouble. Mrs. Twitchell was 67 years old. She was taken suddenly ill Saturday while her husband was attending the funeral services of Mark Twain in New York. He returned to Hartford instead of go ing to Elmira, N. V., where he was to have conducted' the services at the grave. Mrs. Twitchell was a lifelong friend of Mrs. Clerriens. AMERICAN GIRL SLAIN IN NAPLES Body Found on Beach and Po lice Suspect Murder Fol lowed Assault NAPLES, April 24. — The finding of the body of a beautiful young woman on the beach' near here has given rise to the suspicion of murder. Apparently the woman Jlied about three days ago. The body was scantily clothed and this had led the authorities to believe that probably she was the victim of crime. The body was identified by the pro prietor of the Hotel Castello as that of Miss Estella Reid, supposed to have been an American, who was a guest at the hotel. She was fair and tall, with gray eyes and; quite prominent nose, and wore eye glasses. The supposition that she came from the United States was strengthened today, when the po lice found letters'addressed to'her from Ne w York, St. Louis and Canada. Sev eral of these apparently "were love let ters. "..'.;, ,\u25a0 .\u25a0. \u25a0 v" -'_: For the last few months Miss Reid had spent her time variously at Lindau, Germany; Turin, Milan, Pisa and Siena.

She devoted, a portion of the time to painting. v " INCENDIARY FIRE DRIVES SLEEPERS INTO STORM Woman Carried From Apart ment Fatally Burned CHICAGO, April 24.— Clad in night clothing, go persons' were driven into;a snow storm here today by an ..alleged Incendiary fire in the Cledan apartment building.

"Personally I do not think too much attention can be paid to the physical development of the city boy. Surrounded by Temptation "He Is surrounded with temptations, and if he can not find a healthy, natural outlet for his energy he is going to get into mischief. The constant suppres sion of athletics, or at least its ab sence -from the life of the city boy, drives him into pool parlors and billiard halls, Into smoking cigarettes and all the \u25a0 evils which naturally 1 ollowl "The sectarian schools are sending out men sound in mind as .well as in body, and this should be the aim of the public schools also. But, as I have said, San Francisco has not, the facilities and not having them, we must expect to. see our boys beaten hopelessly when they meet with, students of' schools In other cities. Physical vitality should be created In the city. It can be done and is being done by the sectarian schools. The defeat to the boys Is butter, but lta sting may be eliminated ifthe parents will see Its significance and work to change conditions." Defeat Is Humiliating J. H. McCoy, a member of the play ground commission, was equally em phatic. : j - \ "It is certainly not pleasant for aSn Francisco to acknowledge defeat at the hands of places very,much smaller than Itself, but I hope a lesson can be drawn from it. The city ; boy, I think, has more inducement to become Interested In athletics than has the lad from the country, for the reason that he can form clubs and organizations and thereby add to the physical work a pleasing social feature. "It is simple to place the cause of the defeat of our boys — they need more and larger playgrounds. The school yards are inadequate, arid if the public wishes to see a change it must pro vide the proper facilities," Defends Boys' Development Frank Morton, principal of the Low ell high' school, was the only one who maintained that the defeat did not speak ill of the physical development Of the.boys of San Francisco. \ ; , "The average of the city and country boy is. about the same,*"', he said, "and the. scores at the Stanford track meet are not to be taken as pointing to the contrary. The fact is that some schools have a few students, orie or two, who surpass the others, and by the system of scoring the successes of the one or two win their school the points. It does not mean that the athletic aver ; age of the one is better than any other; it means merely that one school has one or two boys who excel the others." Children Cry for Space > In s'orrie of the schools the students are not allowed the use of the meager school yard after school hours. Until a few years ago the lack of space was ; not felt, but the vast amount of build ing which followed the fire drove out, among, other things, the corner lot baseball fields and football grounds which the youngsters had been using from time immemorial. The vacant places - have gradually been filled, and youthdom of the city has been forced back . further and further until now ;it , scarce knows where to; turn in order to stretch its growing limbs. . "An instance of this is the parking at Seventh and Harrison streets, which before .the fire was supplied with bars, bridges, 1 ladders and other gymnastic apparatus for the use of the children. Now it is lawns and flower, beds,. which, while pretty, are not satisfying to chil dren. Each succeeding memta , since the fire has seen the "space beopming more and more limited. Now the cry of the children is for space, for play grounds and a chance so that the next meet they will go forth and wipe the face .of the earth with their compet itors, v | Californians on Travels | KEW YORK, April 21.— Californiana are rejrlstercd Here as follows: " ' " ' • • .

Prevents Vote on Cummins' Substi >tute Provision Both Houses Are Greasing the Slides for Administration - V Measures WASHINGTON, April 24.— The "Mar athon" between the senate and the house for 'the distinction of being first to pass President's Taft's railroad leg islation is attracting unusual interest. Both branches of congress had hoped to reach votes before the close of this week, but the senate seems ; to have encountered several '• obstacles, and froip present, indications, it will be 10 days before the measure is sent to conference. Representative Mann, of Illinois, in charge of the bill; in the house, suc ceeded in getting an order for* its con sideration for amendment under, the five minute rule. It is likely he^can bring the measure to a final vote Thursday or Friday. -•- -; On the senate side decays have been provoked by the desire of members to go to baseball games. Senator Elkins said yesterday, he could have- put through several important provisions last week if it had not been far the absence of his colleagues. Elkins did not exaggerate the situa tion, although he' was speaking jocu larly. . SENATORS ATBALLGAME Senator Elkins reported yesterday that he had enough votes to defeat the Cummins substitute for the Elkins- Crawford provision, which the senators in charge of the bill want adopted. "Then let's get a vote," urged Sena tor Aldrlch. .' ' r "It- would not be safe today," said Elkins. , "Too many senators are at tending the ball game." "That would affect both sides, wouldn't it?" persisted Aldrich. "I 'don't know about that." replied Elkins. "It seems to be our fellows who are away." After the railroad bill is out of the way the house expects to begin work on the postal sayings bank measure, although it may require',' a cau"cus of republicans to get the bill out of com mittee. The, senate bill does' not meet with approval in- the house and the contest overjt will be spirited. Hearings will be had on the Moon anti-injunction bill, which will folldw next on the house program. Statehood legislation probably will be the last ad ministration policy to be considered. Thursday the president will receive his imperial highness Prince Tsai Tao, brother of the infant emperor of China. The Chinese party will be entertained elaborately at the White House and by Secretary Knox. DECISION LOOKED FOR The decision of the supreme court in the corporation tax case is looked for by many tomorrow, but the court has given no 'intimation as to when the decision will be rendered. Only /our more decision days remain In the pres ent term. . - This week marks the close of 'the argument of cases before the court, unless a. x special order should be en tered for the argument of some par ticular case, such as the. controversy between the two Virginias for the di vision of the old dominion. Among the cases expected to be argued are two Involving the liability of railroads to their employes — one from Texas, the other from Kentucky. Gossip continued about the president's selection of a 'successor to Justice Brewer. There is Httlefdoubt that the place, ; in one way or another, has been offered to Governor Hughes of New York. There are persons here who believe the governor will accept.

"In June, 1907, I demanded through my then attorneys, A. L. and S. F. Jacobs, a legal separation from my wife--' I did not then, and never have, desired a divorce because of the child. ."One year later, in June, 190S, Mrs. Hacke\t commenced action for divore*. I filed my answer, and for one year sub sequent thereto, the case remained deadlocked and in status quo. "In August, 1909, Mrs. Hackejtt with drew her action for divorce. "Another action, which was not op posed by me. was then comriienced, and it is upon this that the final decree yesterday was . granted.

It was noticeable, however, -that the warmth of General Wood's reception was much more marked on the part of the higher elements of society, represented by for mer members of the old moderado party of President Palnm. than by adherents of the present dominant liberal party. A few suspicious persons affected to see a sinister significance in the gen eral's visit as possibly indicating a tendency of the United States to inter fere in the affairs of Cuba, but almost unanimously his presence was taken as a compliment to Cuba and has done much to cement the bunds of good feel ing between the two countries. Already there is much pleasant anticipation of the projected visit of former President Roosevelt. From many parts of the Interior' come complaints of distress among the labor ing population because of low wages and the high prices of the necessities of life. They throw the blame on President Gomez, who, they N declare, has failed to fulfill his ante-election promises that prompt measures would be taken for their relief. With the end of the sugar season shortly many thousands of laborers will be thrown out of work for three or four months, and the distress and the discontent will be greatly In creased.
