Will I{. Colvig, of 113 South
'enn street, ami Guy l'ryor, his jiartici*
in business, tit No. 1056 Main
trcet, will leave this city about tho
t..c-e -,t- Ttitr in n liio- Oaifilae touring*
ar for St. Rouis. They will go by
lie way of the National Road and
vill pass through Zanosvilio. . Colnm>us.
Springfield and Terre Haute
mtl thence southwest. The car in
vhlch they will travel is geared to
;0 miles an hour and it is expected
hat the entire distance of six himI
red miles will be made In forty-eight
lours running time.
The car in which the long trip will
ie made is sold by H. S. Sands' Elecrica!
company, of this city. In a
ike car thirty-five horse power, made
itidcr his own nmtiagemeiil, Archie
?aiil; of Woodsdale. will probably folow,
as he is seriously contemplating,
lie trip.
ft is the Intention of the party to
eave this city early in the morning
likI sleep in Columbus the same
light, although Mr. Colvig stated to
l Telegraph reporter yesterday that
-great deal of running would be
lone at night. If the roads are in
:ood condition the trip*will be made
n ?'or?n time unless an accident of
oine kind befalls, the machine.
It is the intention of those comirising
the party to get an educaional
benefit as well as pleasure
rom the trip. They will learn the
>revailing feeling towards different
rlasses of people by changing the engineer
garb to that of tramps and
ixing up the automobile aecordingy
after Columbus, Ohio, is passed.
The party will spend about ten
lays in St. Louis and during their
;tay there will continue to wear the
Iress of an engineer?consisting of
l blue blouse, jumpers and black
ight fitting cap.
For some time Mr. C'olvig has been
n communication with the American
\utomobile Association. Wheeling
s on the main route between the
?ast and St. I^ouis. It is pertinent
lore to queue a .seieuuuu jcer
written by Augustus Post, chairnan
of the touring committee to Dr.
5. M. Taylor, of Columbus:
"That portion of the road between
Sanesville and Cumberland, which
lasses through Wheeling. on the
Dliio river, is the best, road, condiions,
scenery and historic interest
considered of any road of similar
listance which I have ever traveled.
vVe had the satisfaction of knowing
hat it was a roarl upon which $7,>00,000
had been spent by the government
as the connecting link beween
'the Potomac and the Ohio at
tVheeling, W. Va., many of the iron
nilestones are still standing though
n a good many places they have
ieen removed from their proper portions
and installed in door yards."
further Mr. Post talks of the historic
n teres! and of old relict he has seen
ilong the way.
From the 25th of July until the 10th.
>f August, the automobile*. St. houis
our will be open. Many of the machines
starting in the east will pass
hrough tills city and it is expected
hat Wheeling will bo used a.s a reay
station by many of them.
In a letter received by Mr. Colvig
t was stated that two automobile
oads of oorifetti would be scattered
ilong the route between Chicago and
?t. IvOuis. It will be distributed in
urge quantities and it is thought if
vill serve as a good guide to those ;
ollowing after. There are many en- j
