Special Meeting of Motor Club
Officials Called to Decide
Upon Awards
The reliability run of the San Fran
cisco motor club to Tahoe tavern and
return came to a successful close yes
terday afternoon when the contestants
boarded the 4 p. m. creek boat from
Oakland for the citjr. After the ecore
had been canvassed by the committee
which had charge of the event it was
officially announced that nine of the
contestants had made perfect scores,
and that the chairman of the committee
would notify the owners of the win
ning cars of the time and place of the
nieeting: to decide upon the winner of
the Nelson cup.
Those who were awarded perfect
scores were: Knox, Cartercar, Crawford,
Wir.ton. Rjunbler. two Bulcks, Ford
and ilaxwell.
The last day of the run was an ex
citing one for the contestants, as the
rain was not counted upon when the
event began. Most of the cars were
not supplied with nonskid devices and
the drivers had to be mere than care
ful, for a bad skid meant the loss of
a perfect score. They all managed to
gret through in fine shape, except C. A.
Hawkins, Pacific coast manager of the
"White company, who was driving a
White gas car. He left Sacramento
with a perfect score and was getting
along nicely on the slippery road when
he ran into a bad stretch about eight
Jniles the other side of Livermore. The
car bejran to skid and there was no
stopping it until it went into the ditch.
In the skid one of the steering knuckles
->vas Injured, so that Hawkins was un
able to proceed. But for this mishap
there would have been 10 perfect
The fact that so many made perfect
scores would indicate that the run was
an easy one. This was not the case as
any ore who has been over the road
«an tpeiify. It is easy when the cars
<an tak<» their time in going over the
mountains, but when the cars have to
be forced it is a big strain on the ma
< hine and drivers.
Tlie Crawford car made a splendid
f-howing. It was the first to arrive out
side of most of the controls. The con
fist^nt running of the car showed its
ability for just such hard work that
this run demanded.
. The little Winton Six won out hand
i'y. It was about the longest "wheel
lased car In the contest, and the way
-t was able to take all the turns on the
mountain proved its adaptability for
mountain climbing.
The friction drive Cartercar! made a
hft by the way it went over the steep
pmde. Some of the motorists have
he^n skeptical about the car's ability
to take the hard grades of»the moun
tains, but after the run they were all
load in their praise of the car, which
carried its full complement of pas-
frr ; ger.s the whole irip. \u25a0
The pets of thd run -were the two
little B'jicks. These little wonders won
th% admiration of every one. It was a
most interesting sight when Frank
Murray brought his car up the heavy
prade at the Summit. Whin the Buick
was sighted the motorists at the top
freely offered bets as to where the
midget would have to give up the
struggle on the praile. But it came
along without even the slightest sign
of a hah a r.d' reached the top In great
The Ford, which was one of the offi
cial car*, was 5n the running at all
tiroes. Jt irade all the controls on time

T«« Rambler, the other one of the
perfect score cars, made an Interesting
showing frcm the fact that It was a pri
vate car. George B. McCauley entered
the ev^nt with a desire to Bee just what
his car would do under a forced run.
The car did. Its work in great shape,
r.pver faltering-.
The Knox had about the hardest run
nf all the cars. It was the pilot car, m
carrying pome of the officials and part
of the press representatives. It had to
rake, better than the schedule 'time, as
the timers had to reach the checking
points before the cars came In and had
to be away first of them all. There was
a hard drive at all times.
The Diamond tires won a victory, as
they were on the winning cars. The
Michelins were on two of the winning
cars. The Knox press car made its
fast work on Fisk equipment. Ten of
the cars in the run used Monogram oil.

Battling Dane Coming
West '• to Tacjde
Local Boxer \ '
R. H. E.
BATTLING NELSON,; the greatest
lightweight fighting machine
that the Queensberry -game has
ever produced,' is firmly convinced that
he "came back" when he battered
Monte Dale all around the ring in
Kansas City on Monday evening. So <
certain is the Battler, of his ability to
keep going that he has accepted Pro
moter Jim Griffin' 3 terms for a 10 or
15 round bout -with One Round Jack
Hogan or Antone la Grave on the even
ing of October 28.
The Dane was bo anxious to get on
the job here that he canceled his
scheduled Chicago meeting with Ad-
Wolgast and left Kansas City last
night for San Francisco. Accompany
ing him is Abdul the Turk, the trainer
who has stuck close to the Battler
since he lost his lightweight crown to
"Wolgast at Richmond last Washing
ton's birthday.
Nelson accepted Griffin's terms last
night. ; He is to receive *a fat cash
guarantee,, with a privilege of a per
centage. It took the prompter and
the boxer several days to come ' 'to
terms, principally because Nelson -was
not quite^ sure of himself until he
stepped into:; the ring \against -Dale.
However, once, he subdued the Kansas
City cyclone, the former lightweight
king was confident that he, could de
liver. The next thing he did was to
touch the telegraph wires and accept
Griffin's terms.
The distance for the contest has not
been definitely decided upon as yet, and
jt probably will be a 15 round affair.
Either Hogan or La Grave is perfectly
willing to take Nelson on over the, 15
round route, - though, at first Hogan
held out for 10 rounds. As Nelson al
ways has favored the 1 -, Marathon . dis
tance It goes without saying that "15
rounds will be more to his' liking, than
10 rounds.
Griffin Intends to stage the contest
either in Dreamland or the new Coli
seum. He has not made up his mind
"as yet. He wants as much room as
possible, for this card certainly is the
most attractive staged In California
since the memorable one last "Washing
ton's birthday, when the Dane lost the
lightweight crown to Wolgast after 41
rounds of hurricane milling.
"All I want is the chance,* says Ho
gan. "I may as well find out now
whether I am a champion or a busher.
I think I can beat Nelson in a-10 or 15
round contest or else I would not be
making this match. In the meantime I
have to beat La Grave, so I would pre
fer not to say any more till after Fri
day night's affair." . • -
Sam Fitzpatrick, La Grave's manager,
is equally confident that his man can
get away with Hogan. He Is willing
and ready to sign up if things turn out
the way he expects them to in the next
encounter. : .

One Round Champion
To Meet Terror of
THE most important four round en
gagement ever entered into by
any/ pair of boxers in this city
will be settled on Friday night at
Dreamland. The principals will be
"One Round Jack" Hogan, looked upon
as California's lightweight
fighter, and Antone' L.a Grave, the
Butchertown slugger, regarded as the
one dangerous rival for Hogan's title.
The man who is returned tho winner
will be pitted against Battling Nelson
for the main event of Jim Griffin' 3
big show. As .the Battler- is now on
his way to this city,' there is no ques
tion that he means business and that
the winner will have the chance of his
career, a chance, which he may never
get again.
Although he figures a legitimate 10 to
7 shot over L,a Grave, there is every
reason to believe that Hogan will have
the hardest battle .of .his career when
he steps into the ring against the ter
ror ) from . Butchertown.V La Grave is
not", only' a\ tbughT rugged mixer, but
he "has, a -.certain amount, of. clever
ness that has bothered every man whom
he has ever met.--" .- ; , . ."•"

against him, Hogan always comes home
with the long end* of " the purse.
iHogan is the hardest hitter of them

as ha rd ' as the plumber boy ever could
