WILL AID COAL . SHIPMENTS Extension for 30 Days of Distribution of Open ' Top Cars . MINE OPERATORS SEE A SOLUTION New-' England's Coal Prob lems Ought to Be Helped Thereby Washington, D: C, 'July 14. Deci sion of the interstate commerce com mission to extend for 30 days its or der giving preferential distribution of open-top cars to coat mines eaat of the Mississippi was accepted to-day by mine operators generally as a step that would aid materially in solving the coal transportation problem. The deci sion, which was announced lale yester day, came too late for formal consider, ation by the conference of operators who had held a two-day meeting here to discuss methods of relieving a threatened coal shortage in New Eng land and the northwest this winter. Individually, however, the operators were well pleased. In announcing extension of the origi nal order, which would have expired Julv 21, the commission advised Daniel Wiilard of the advisory committee of the Association of Railway Executives of three amendments. The first provides that the roads must place an em bargo against consignees failing to un load open-top cars within 24 hours aft er delivery. The second provides that railroads must assign cars without re gard to existing ratings for the mines so as to provide fuel for current use to public utilities and public institu tions. The third defines what types of utilities are to be considered as coal cars. The commission also suggested to Chairman Wiilard that the carriers prohibit more than one reconsignment of coal-laden cars. No action toward relieving the coal shortage in the northwest was takan by the commis sion, which stated that solution of this problem had been left to the conference in New York to-day of the operators and railway officials.

HISTORY OF ATTEMPTS TO LIFT THE CUP First Race for Cup As International Prize Was Held Half a Century Ago And the British Have Been Trying at Inter vals Since Then. New York, July 14 The first race in 17 years fos the America's cup will start Thursday off Sandy Hook, the contesting boats being the cup de fender Resolute, and the challenger, Sir Thomas S. Lipton's Shamrock TV". It may be interesting at this time both to yachtsmen and to a great many who are 'not acquainted with this form of sport to read a few facts in con nection with this historic yachting trophv. To 'begin with the Americs's cup at first was not an international trophy. In fact, it had no significance other than being a prize offered by the Royal Yacht squadron for a race- around the Isle of Wight, Kngland. which was open to all nations. In August, 1851, the echooner yacht America, owned by Commodore John I Steven and four other members of the New York Yacht club, won this race and the cup be came their property. Six years later, Commodore Stevens and his associates conveved the prire to the New York Yacht club in trust a a perpetual in ternational trophy which has sine been known as the America's cup, tsk ing Its name from the schooner yacht which won it in British waters. The first race for the America's cup, as an international pri, waa held on August H, 1870, over the regulsr coirse of the New York Yscht club in New York lower bay. The chal lenging boat- was Cambria, owned by Jame Ashbury of the Royal Yacht squadron. England, and the cup was defended bv practically the whole fleet of the New York Yacht club. That, however, was the only race in which the challenger ever had to sail against a fleet and the only contest in which the issue was decided by a single race. Cambria, by the wav, fin ished 10th in that event while the old America finished fourth, the race being won by Magic, the yfcht Idler finish ing second. In all there have been 12 contests for the cup, in the second of which Mr. Ashbury challenged with the schooner Livonia and the New York Yacht club sgteed to defend the trophy with only one boat in the race. The 1871 con test was the best four oflt of seven races. Livonia won a single race owing to the steering gear of the defender Columbia breaking down. Only twice since that day, October 10, 1871, has a challenging yacht crossed the finish line ahead of the defending boat. On September 10, 1805, Valkyrie III., aft er following the defender, finished one minute and 16 seconds ahead of the American boat and on October 4, 1901, Shamrock II. finished two seconds ahead of Columbia but lost to the de fender by virtue of conceding 42 sec onds time allowance. In the races of 1878, 18S1, 1885, 188 and 1887, the contests were de cided on the basis of the best two out of three races. From 1893 to the last race in 1903 the agreement was for the best three -out of five races. On only three occasions has one of the competing yachts for the Ameri ca's cup failed to finish. In the last race of the 1895 contest, Valkyrie III. withdrew immediately after crossing the starting line. On October 17, 1899, Shamrock lost her topmast and with drew In the second race of that year and one September 3, 19P3, Shamrock IIL did not finish in he final race of the series as she was already beaten and had nothing to gain by continu ing. Just once in the history of the cup races has a competing yacht been dis qualified. This was in the second race of the series of 1895 when Lord Dun raven's Valkyrie III. waa disqualified for fouling defender The fastest time ever made in a race for the America's cup is credited to the eld schooner Columbia. On October 18, 1871, the dav before she was defeat ed by Livonia, she sailed 20 miles lee ward and windward, 40 miles in ail, in three hours, one minute and 33 sec onds. It must not be inferred, however, that the Columbia was the fastest racht that ever sailed for the cup. There is no method of determining the relative speed of two or more boats other than bv the results of a race in which they t-ail together. When Co lumbia made the fast time referred to undoubtedly the conditions of wind, weather and sea were most favorable. The fastest time ever made on a 15 mile course straight away and return, 30 miles in all, is credited to tbe de fender Vilgiant. In a race on October 12, 1893, she covered the course in three hours, 24 minutes and 29 sec onds. The fastest time in a triangular raca for the cup was made by Columbia on October 3, 1891, the time for the dis tance, 30 miles, being 3:30:18. In the first three contests for the cup the challenging boats were schoon ers and the defenders for the second and third also were schooners. In all contests, however, the yachts have been sloops or cutter. The smallest challenger in the his tory of the cup race was Atlanta, which was built at Bellville, Ontario, Canada, in 1881. She measured 4 feet on the water 'line and was the first sloop to appear in a contest. The .first yacht ever built especially to defend the trophv was Pocahontas. This was in 1881. Prior to that year the New York Yacht club had selected from its fleet the yacht considered to he best suited for the purpose. Poca hontas did not come up to expectat ions and waa rejected in favor of Mischief, one of the finest sloops of the fleet. Since that year, however, new defend ers have been built for every contest. There were two candidates for the honor of defending the cup in 1885, two in 1886 and four in 1893, and In every contest, excepting one, since th race between Atlanta and Mischief the cup has been defended by a yacht built for that particular race. The one excep tion was in 1901 when Constitution, bulit for the race of that year, waa dis carded in favor of Columbia, which suc cessfully defended the trophy .in 1899. BARRY GIVEN TWO MONTHS.'

DULY CELBRATED Colorado People Observe 100th Anni versary of the Fiist Climbing of the Towering Mountain By Dr, Frank James. Colorado Springs Colo., July 14. One hundred years ago to day Dr. Frank James astonished the world by climb ing to the top of Pike's Peak, 14.100 feet above the sea. Since that time 2,000,000 persons have made the trip and, to-day, Colorado Springs is cele brating the anniversary with ceremo nies all along the 18-mile serpentine automobile highway to the summit. Lieutenant Zebulon M. Pike is cred ited with the discovery of the moun tain in 1806. As hardy a pioneer as was the discoverer, he declared the peak was inaccessible and none dared to doubt it until July 14, 1820, when Doctor James, a member of the 'Major Long expedition, succeeded in the at tempt. Major Long christened the mountain James peak but the pioneers and plainsmen persisted in giving it the name of its discoverer and Pike's Peak it has remained. The history of tourist travel to this most famous spot of the Rockies has been that of development of highway transportation. First came a bridle path, in 1878; two yeara later a wag on road was built and in 1891 a cog wheel railroad was constructed. With the development of the auto mobile industry came the demand for a motor road and in 1916 the present mo tor highway, winding around the mountain in devious curves, with precr ipitous rock walls flush against the road on the one hand and deep ravines on the other, was completed at a cost of $300,000. It has an average grade of seven per cent and a maximum of 10V4 per cent. It was 20 feet wide ex cept at the curves which were extended to 50 feet for the greater safety of the motorist. Pike's Peak Is eight miles in an air line from Colorado Springs and the greater part of the mountain is con trolled by Colorado Spring to safe guard the city's water supply. In April, 1919, a government war tank attempted to climb the peak but was blocked by snow drifts. A month later a caterpillar tractor made the as cent. Walking races, burro races, motor cycle ana automobile races have been held on Pike's Peak. The first airplane to cross the peak was flown over the mountain on August 3, 1919, piloted by Alexander Lendrum of Colorado Springs. The record for motor over the 12 miles from Crystal Greek to the sum mit is held by Ralph Mulford, who made it in 18 minutes, 26 seconds. Next September the automobile hill climbing contest, discontinued during the war, will be resumed. An airplane race from Denver around Pike's Peak and return will feature the event.

S. The present population of the world does not exceed 1,600,000,000. With an even distribution of people, relative to area and soil productiveness, the plsnet on which we dwell might sup port 6,000.000,000. But the distribution is exceedingly Uneven. In India and China there are so many human beings that the fall ing of crops even slightly below the normal for a single season means fam-, ine, bringing death to multitude. A prime cause of the age long turmoil in Europe is overcrowding, which mske frequent wars inevitable. There is plenty of room in Africa and South America, when the conquest of th tropics, mainly a matter of d.s esse elimination, shall have been ac complished. The latter continent to day relatively vacant territory for the most part especially invite popula tion, because save in the far south, it is so bounteously watered.
