WORLD'S RECORD
FOR THREE HEATS
IN TROTTING RACE
Rivalry Between F. G. Jones
and "Pop" Geers Respon
sible for Racing
With Thrills -
DETROIT. Aug. IB.—A world's rocord
for three heats In a trotting race was
established today at the close of the
grand circuit meet at the atate fair
grounds, when F. G. Jones of Memphis
drove Dudie Archdale to victory in the
free for all with Anvil, Geers up, con
testing every inch of the way.
The time for the three heats waa
2 041,4, 2:04',i, 2:04*4. Anvil winning the
first heat and Dudie Archdale the next
two.
The former record was* made in Syra

2:049», Spanish Queen winning
the first heat.
Margot Hal. winner of the Board of
Commerce stake on the opening day,
captured the 2:15 pace this afternoon
and I,illlan Arnold won the 2:12 trot.
KEEN RIVALRY
There was the keenest sort of rivalry
betw. en Geers and Jones in the free
for all. Jones owns both Anvil and
Dudie Archdale, and friends of the two
drivers had had a week long contro
versy aa to who would take the prize.
Jones took the Archdale mare in
front in each hsat, and in the last two
kept her in that position all the way
around. In the first one, however,
Geers made a beautiful drive in the
stretch and won out by a neck. Cas
cade never was a real contender.
Both Anvil and Dudie Archdale acted
beautifully. There was never the sus
picion of a skip, each animal moving
with the precision and smoothness of
a perfect machine.
(JEERS' GREAT DRIVING o ' .

SUIT AGAINST ALLEGED
MAGAZINE TRUST FAILS
Federal Government Drops Prosecution
of Periodical Clearing House:
Association Allowed to Die
NEW YORK, Aug. 15.—The federal
government has dropped its anti-trust
suit against the. periodical clearing
house, an organization that embraced
some important magazines published in
the east.
The suit, begun here about two years
ago by United States District Attorney
Henry Wise, attracted widespread at
tention because the government sought
to prove that magazine makers, some
of them active in "muck raking" the
great industrial and commercial com
binations, were themselves guilty of
combination In violation of the Sher
man law.
The United States court in this dis
trict decided in favor of the publishers
nearly a month ago, but the news of
the government's defeat did not be
come generally t known until today. It
was announced by the publishers at the
expiration of the time within which
the attorney general might have taken
;tn appeal to the supreme court.
At the same time they let it be
known that the clearing house had
been allowed to die.

(Special Dispatch to Tbe Call)
WOODLAND, Aug. 16.—A real public
wedding, autos that turn somersaults
in the air, diving horses, aviators of
world wide reputation, reckless auto
racers, midway of amusement attrac
tions—these are a few of the side fea

NEAR TRAGEDY IN
ANNUAL MARATHON
UP MOUNT BAKER
Runners Engulfed in Cre
vasse Have Close Call for
Lives —Result in ( .
Dispute
HELLIXGHAM, Aug. 15.—Four men
finished within the prize money this j
afternoon In the third annual Mount
Baker marathon, bvit the division of
prizes probably will not be made until
a misunderstanding over the route to
be taken is settled between the con
testants and the contest committee of
the Mount Baker club, sponsor for . the
race.
Paul Westerlund of California, and j
the first man to the dome of the moun
tain in 1912. finished first, signing the
register at the finish at 2:39. making
his official time 9 hours 33 minutes 4R
seconds, or 18 minutes better than the
winner of the 1912 race.
Joe Frankoviz. who followed Wester- ,
lund over the trails, finished second, his
time being 10 hours 14 minutes —23
minutes over the 1912 record.
WENT FI LL DISTANCE
More than two hours after the first !
runner came in J. K. Magnusson re
ported at race headquarters, having
gone the entire distance to the dome
on account of the misunderstanding of
routes announced last night, when the
judge sent to the peak reported it im
possible to brave the blizzard that has
been raging on the mountain for 72
hours.
It is this misunderstanding that prob
ably will cause a contest of the first
two men to win.
Magnusson's time was 11 hours 51 I
minutes, or two hours more than the j
1912 winner's time.
J. C. Hayes finished fourth, having '
followed Magnusson to the dome, his j
time being 12:2-6:15.
FELL INTO CREVASSE, „
Hayes came near losing his life :
when nearly to the top of the mountain
While ascending the Glacier trail. He i
looked over his shoulder to see how
near Victor Galbraith, another runner,
was to him.
A half blind "revasse engulfed Hayes
and he rolled and tumbled precipitately
downward 100 feeL He was not seri
ously hurt. • however. ■
It took him 20 minutes to crawl out.
when, scratched and bruised, he re
sumed the race, reaching the end of
the trail, where an automobile was
waiting, completely exhausted
In the last 100 yards he ;felL more ■
than a dozen times, and It was neces
sary for the driver of . the automobile
to tie. Hayes in his seat to bring him
on to the city, a distafice of 22 miles.
Hayes, recuperated rapidly, however,
and seemed all right a couple of hours
after coming in.
ANOTHER VICTIM
Victor Galbraith fared even worse
than Hayes. .
When Hayes arrived at HelsWs
ranch at the. foot of the Deming trail
he was asked about Galbraith. All
Hayes could tell was that he saw Gal
braith a minute before he himself fell
into the crevasse.
A searching party at once set out,
and found; Galbraith In the same cre
vasse that Hayes fell into. Galbraith
had suffered from exposure and ex
haustion, but no serious results are
expected.

TOURISTS ENTHUSE IN
MAKING ALASKA TRIP
Steamer Traffic to St. Mi
chael and Nome to Close
Aug. 22 and Sept. 1
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
SEATTLE, Aug. 15.—Announcement
was made last night for the last sail
ings from Seattle for connections at
St. Michael, Alaska, for points on the
Yukon river by steamship companies
operating between this port and Ber
ing sea, as August 22 and September 1.
The Alaska-Pacific Steamship com
pany, however, will have steamers
leave for points in southwestern Alas
ka for several months to come. These
trips will be of especial interest to the
tourists and others desirous of visiting
the interesting parts of the territory.
During the last trips to southwestern
Alaska points steamers of the Alaska-
Pacific Steamship company have been
carrying hundreds of enthusiastic tour
ists. In nearly every instance the cap
tains of the steamers have been pre
sented with testimonials praising the
delights of the sea voyage and com
mending the Alaska-Pacific Steamship
company's officers, courteous treatment
of passengers and the excellence of the
cuisine.
There is no more delightful trip on
either coast than that to Alaska in
the summer or fall, and this fact is
becoming more generally known each
succeeding season.

SOLANO TO BECOME ONE OF THE
STATE'S PROUDEST MUNICIPALITIES
BUSINESS BLOCKS
FOR SOLANO CITY
Men Behind Great Project to
Attend at the Birth of
New City
The im mediate construction of 10
business buildings assured, the sale of
more than $100,000 worth of lots guar
anteed by the advance demands to date,
and excursions that will tax the accom
modations provided by the Oakland and
Antioch and Southern Pacific railroads,
in addition to 100 automobiles, are cir
cumstances that might be termed "aus
picious* for the opening of Solano City
on Sunday, August 17.
The birth of. the new city, with its
metropolitan ambitions as the key to
the i>acramenfo valley, will be attended
by its sponsors, the men who made the
( ity both necessary and possible by
their development of Solano farms and
vital transportation facilities. Patrick
Calhoun, head of the enterprise, will
not be present, owing to absence in the
cas=t. Among those who will journey
in the private car provided by the Oak
land and. Antioch railway will be Wal

Solano doesn't leap on to the map of
California as a boom town. It comes as
the logical complement of the expendi
ture of millions of dollars in the devel
opment of an agricultural empire, tre
mendous in size, incomparable In fer
tility and Ideally located in relation
to the greatest markets on the Pacific
coast. Providing that area with a per
petual crop guarantee in the shape of
inexhaustible water for irrigation and
the rapid settlement of the lands by
hundreds of small farmers Insure the
wealth of the territory behind the new
city, hut Solano might still be a coun
try town Instead of a great city were
it not for its admirable control of com
peting rail and water transportation.
The beginning of through electric serv
ice over the Oakland and Antioch from
Sacramento to the bay In September,
with the cutting of travel time by
one hour, will draw passenger traffic
through the new city. The dredging of
a 6 mile, 150 foot canal, deep enough
for large river steamers, from Sulsun
bay, gives Solano an inland seaport
40 miles from San Francisco.
The importance of this water trans
portation to the Sacramento valley is
best realized from the statement of
J. H. Peterson, president of the Bank
of Dixon, who was in the city this
week en route home from a vacation
at Santa Cruz. He said:
"When the Sacramento valley elec
tric line is built, Solano harbor will
draw the freight traffic of the Sacra
mento from as far north as Red Bluff,

Two views of Solano City and a glimpse at Woodacre

of the cattle ranges, the mines, the

new electric lines has shown that in
variably they take the business of the
steam roads. The Oakland and Antioch
will get its share; the Sacramento Val
ley electric, with its terminus at So
lano harbor will carry the products of
the great valley direct to the nearest
salt water shipping point. I look for
Solano to be an important shipping
point, and a bustling city."
Mr. Peterson expressed the belief
that Solano Irrigated Farms would he
the greatest truck gardening district in
the state. He said that irrigation by
pumping from wells had raised the
value of lands around Dixon from $100
to $300 an acre and that the use of
the sun tempered water from the Sac
ramento, through the Solano system
should make the increase in values
even greater.
The demand for lots- in Solano by
solid business concerns Indicates a
faith in the future of the city, but
there is also a speculative demand at
the first prices' fixed by A. J. Rich
& Co. which savors of the initial rush
into Richmond and Los Angeles 10 and
20 years ago. California investors look
for something of the kind once in a
decade. It's Solano's turn now.

places built in the room give it a home
like, restful air. It Is in this room
that several banquets have been given
since the acquisition of the property
by the new corporation.
The grounds about the place are
being improved with swimming lakes,
tennis courts - and a baseball park, all
of which will be completed within the
coming fortnight. All of these attrac
tions are free to the general public and
will prove particularly attractive to
owners of sites In the property.-
From the porch of the administra

three sides, a pleasing panoramic view
of the San Geronimo valley Is gained
looking away to the westward, while
to the south one looks Into the great
natural amphitheater irregularly lined
by serpentine boulevards, which is
causing much favorable comment by
everybody who visits the tract.
The contour of the amphitheater is
so exact that it offers excellent possi
bilities for the staging of a pageant.
This fact is realized by Sales Manager
J. S. Collier, who with the help of the
officials of the Lagunitas Development
company is planning for the staging of
an outdoor theatrical on this pretty
hillside. While the date and final ar
rangements have not been made. Collier
expressed himself by saying that he
considered that they would be able to
give the show about the middle of next
month.
The rustic arch at the west entrance
to Woodacre was completed last week
and is considered one of the most ar
tistic entrances to any home place in
suburban San Francisco. The red
wood employed in its construction is
obtained from trees which were cut out
in the building of streets. Already
scores of motorists are driving through
this archway over the highly Improved
boulevards, which have been completed
from this point to the administration
building.

FAIRFAX MANOR TO
BE PUT ON MARKET
Beautiful Marin Property to
Be Subdivided —Townsite
Attractive to Buyers
The last three years have witnessed
wonderful growth throughout southern
Marin county, in those hills and valleys
lying about the slopes of Mount Tamal
pais The rapid transit afforded by the
Northwestern Pacific railroad lias made
possible this growth, and with line ex
tensions and Increased service that
beautiful country, which in many ways
resembles sunny Italy, is today on the
eve of a remarkable development, as its
popularity is fast bringing new settlers.
Most prominent of the concerns con
tributing to this growth at Fairfax is
the Fairfax Development company,
which is selling Fairfax Manor and
Bothin Park, residential parks, and
the townsite of Manor, which is re
stricted to business only. The latter
will mark the terminal of the electric
| service of the Northwestern Pacific
railroad which is to be inaugurated
within the coming 30 days. A station
agent, express agency, freight office,
warehouses, etc., will be maintained.
The Fairfax Manor was put on the
market about a, year ago, and today has
about 50 homes. Practically the en
tire first plat is sold. However, the
Heights of Fairfax Manor, which are the
hillside and hilltop property of the
tract, will be formally put on the mar
ket today. This section has been held
back by the lack of means to ascend
the hillside, wjhleh necessitated the con
struction of a funicular railroad, which
has been completed and is In operation
at the present time.
The funicular railroad is owned by
the Funicular Incline Railroad com
pany, which is incorporated for $10,000,
divided into as many shares, at a par
value of $1 each. The exact cost of
the construction of the line was $10,000,
which amount was expended by the
Fairfax Development company, owners
of the tract. A plan is arranged where
by this facility will eventually be
come the holding of the purchasers of
sites In the property. Ten per cent
of the amount of the purchase price of
any site will be presented to the pur
chaser in stock in the railroad company
at par. After a period of two and a
half years, at which time it should
transfer ownership, it will become a
municipal railroad, and unless unfore
seen railway development occurs In
the meantime, will be the first muni
cipal railroad in Marin county.
ENGINEER SOLVES
MARKET EXTENSION
Official Report on Tunnel
Cost to Property Owners
Is Satisfactory
The report of City • Engineer
O'Shaughnessy on the $4,000,000 Twin
Peaks tunnel project, 85 per cent of
which will be paid for by the property
on the southwesterly side, is regarded
as a tangible and satisfactory solution
of the extension of Market street from
its present terminus at Seventeenth
and Castro to Eighteenth and Hattie
streets.
THe extending of Market street on
suitable grade and at a cost within th«
pecuniary reach of that section of the
city which will be benefited mostly, has
been a perplexing problem. •
It ia now pointed out that under the.
Twin Peaks tunnel proceedings the ex
tension of this main artery, which has
long been obviously needed for the
growth and development of the large
area of valuable and desirable prop
erty scouting the Twin Peaks hill, will
be given to the property owners on the
city side of the peaks, practically with
out cost to them.'
In connection with the extension of
Market street as provided in the Twin
Peaks tunnel plans, the Twin Peaks
Association of Improvement Clubs has
a proposition well under way and one
that is receiving support from inter
ested property owners, to take up tha
Market street extension from tha
southeasterly portal of the subway at
Eighteenth and Hattie streets, and by
a contour route and over easy grades
extend It to an intersection with Cor
bett avenue, this giving the district an
outlet to the beach or Golden gate.
; The extension of Market street from
Castro to Hattie streets has always
been a sticker, because it must run
; through about 1,900 feet of improved
property.
The report of the city engineer deals
with this problem in a way that is re
garded as practical. He proposes that
under the Twin Peaks tunnel proceed
ings a right of way can be secured for
about $500,000, thus acquiring surface
as well as subsurface easements.
By thus acquiring the land, which
will be by far the largest part of tha
damages in connection with the con
struction of the tunnel, a 90 foot boule
vard can be built over the subway.
It is coincident that in May. 1112,
John M. Punnett in a report made to
the Twin Peaks Association of Im
provement Clubs proposed the same,
way of extending Market street from
its present terminus to the beginning
of the proposed subway as does the,
city engineer in his report on the Twin
Peaks project which is now in tha
hands of the supervisors for approval.
Regarding the extension, Punnett
| said: _
••From Market street to Eureka
street the grade is 3.5 per cent, and
from there to the connection with
Eighteenth street the grade is 6.4 per
cent. From Eighteenth street it fol
lows the contour of the ground, eross
\ ing Grand avenue and joins the Fal
con avenue on a grade of 7.5 per cent.
From this point south to Corbett ave
nue easy grades are to be met. I hava
figured the width of the boulevard at
>85 feet.
i "After leaving Eighteenth street
and running over the side hill country
I would advocate terracing and placing
the car lines below the driveways.
This would give an artistic effect,
would cost less to construct and would
provide rapid transportation without
danger to vehicles.
"The value of such a highway or
boulevard is inestimable. It would
give a through connection from Mar
ket street to the beach or Golden Gate
park on easy grades.
"For the benefit of the people living
in the entire region covered by my in
vestigation, I can not too strongly urge
that if Market street is extended it
should be as an easy grade highway
—as a main artery, running from its;
present terminus through to the bea«'h
or Golden Gate park, and affording an
outlet to the entire district."
