THE EVEN1NQ REPUBLICAN - COLUMBUS, TUESDAY JUNE 22, 1909. PAGE THREE , CBowwpdnnr races LOSE BACKERS $25,000 Chicago Automobile Club May Drop 1910 Event Lack of Interest .-Puzzle. . Chicago, June 22- After the excitement attending the Crownpoint-Lowell automobile races the officials of the Chicago Automobile Club hare turned their attention toward he finances of the meet, which is understood to hare incurred a deficit to .the extent of 125,000. Reasons' for the loss have " been plenty. x Of coarse the main one Is that the Chicago publisc har not been enough interested In course racing and would rather spend its sooner in park meets or track meets. Another theory-is that the qualifications for the entries were, so stringent that fewars were "entered. ; - From statements made by promi nent club metf" chances are the races. If staged in ltlO; will be conducted on -a. vastly different basis frorn,that governing the Crownpoint1 events. "! . It is almost certain the Crownpoint course will be thrown into thedlscard for the next carnival. The circuit -was none too fast for the light 'cars and the most heroic efforts failed to con-Vert tberoads into even fair shape for the Cobe "races of the second day. As one member of the club put It,-"We have learned a world of things that will prove 'mightly useful if another race Is arranged . '. ' i - ' A member of the clnb said yesterday thatthe deficit would be paid by jonn if arson ana in an. as uicjr '' have been quoted as saying that they . -would agree to pay any possible deficit, but this was not confirmed. I cannot say who will pay the loss,' said Ira M. Cobe," "but whatever the loss is, the amount will be promptly ' met by theassociation and whoever makes up the deficit will not want his name . mentioned : In ' the i matter Further than .that I cannot say. "Looking at the deficit in any way. it la really not a loss In the end. as our membership : has Increased wonderfully, since the first arrangements were made, three months ago, ' and that la certainly some benefit we got out of the races, even If the: events were-, not a financial success. "The races will Increase the num ber of. automobile sales and also the Interest in machines and future" races If we have a meet next year. If our grandstand had been filled at the price charged, $5, it would have paid the cost of the race meet $50,000. As .It was the first day we had 4,000 . and the second day 5,000 in the stand. "The exact amount of the loss will not be known for a month, and then the question of deficit will be taken up. I am sorry that the? races were not as successful financially as .they ' were successful in other respects." ' In the latter part of October, 1903 at the Harllm Park race meet of the Chicago Automobile Club, a small sum .of money was lost, which was quickly made up by members, of the club. - The, Crownpoint races were said to be the first actual stock car races ever held In America, on account of no car being entered "except after an exam : inatlon for the purpose of .seeing that actual stock cars were used and that no extra features 'had been added. These qualifications . would not be made by several of the large automo bile firms, and Tor that reason they did not enter the races. ' , . 1) ' The total number of persons ; who witnessed the races Is estimated to be " 75,000 for the first day and 125,000 for the second day. The majority came from Chicago. The railroad companies report the passengers carried for Friday were 20,000 and Saturday 55,000, practically all to Crownpoint arid Ce dar , Lake, while -the majority of the southern Indiana people r went to -Lowell.

GUARDIANSHIP WORTH TEN THOUSAND A YEAR Probate Court at Indianapolis Allows the Guardian of George Rhodlus a Fancy- Fee. Indianapolis, Ind., June 22. James M. Berry MIL guardian for George Rhodlus, will be allowed $5,000 a year for his services in managing' the af fairs of the millionaire's estate. Judge Ross, in the Probate Court, yesterday morning, decided upon the amount Mr, Berryhill has been Rhodlus guar dian for two years and the court an nounced yesterday that he would, be continued in the position. . ' In making the allowance Judge Ross said that he had a personal examination of Mr.. BerryhiU's report an! that he believed he had managed the affairs - of the estate as well and in as careful and conscientious a man ner as If the' property had been his own. - ' "The estate," said Judge Ross, "is valued at from $750,000 to $1,000,000 and has an income of about $35,000 a year. - This money is realized entirely 1 from real estate rentals and the guardian has collected about $65,000 in rents without the expense of a rental agent. He has also performed all legal services- without the expense of an attorney. ' has made leases, repaired buildings, tried and compromised litigation, claims, etc., involving many thousands of dollars. Besides all this, he has devoted a great deal of time to the personal care of his ward." - Judge Ross stated that when the expense of the recent trial at Greenfield, Ind., tfad been paid there would be no more large expenditures to be drawn from the estate and that within a short time the estate would begin to Increase in value so that if Rhodius should be found to be of sound mind theestate can be turned over to him more valable than it was before it entered Into court litigation. The balance of the moner vrhich Mr. Berry-hill has on hand after withdrawing his allowance of $10,000 will be invested in first mortgage securities. Try a Republican classified ad. NEW RELIGIOUS SECT WORRIES POLITICIANS Crabbltes De Not Believe in Going to the Polls Problem in Morgan County. Martinsville, Ind., June 22. Politic ians of Morgan county are up against a new proposition, and it Is one which promises to tax their Ingenuity to the utmost.- The whole dilemma has been brought about by the peculiar beliefs of the Crabbites, a religious sect that holds forth in the hills south of Martinsville along Gose creek and Little Jordan. If the religion of the Crabbites "sticks' it will mean some new method of political maneuvering by the central committees. The Crabbites, according to lead ers who have Investigated theques tion will refuse to vote, because It is against their religious belief; - The Crabbites live Jln Washington town ship, and the vote in Washington township, in which Martinsville is sit uated, always cuts a pretty big figure In the county election. Also, the pres-clnct in which, the Crabbites live cuts a pretty big-figure in the results In Washington - township. Therefore the county politicians are extremely anxious about the Crabbites. Heretofore those who aye now known as Crabbites have usually vot ed the republican ticket, but a great amount of organization work has been required in the Gose Creek and Little Jordan districts. Expert organizers have been known to work as late as midnight on the night before the elec tion perfecting little details In the or ganization. But with the Crabbites refusing to vote this organization work will be useless. One republican lead er, however, believes that the republi cans will be benefited by the new sltu- tlon. He summed It up as follows: "We can now let Gose Creek and Little Jordan go without any atten tion.. Brother Crabb will take care of things down there. Meanwhile we can be putting forth our best efforts in other parts of the county and can gain votes where we never have gained them before. In my opinion tthe coun ty chairman should call Brother Crabb to headquarters and pat him on the back and tell him he is doing a noble work in saving souls." According to this republican there will be no chance to change'the views of the Crabbites, as the Crabbites with their new religion never ... put them selves In a position to be Influenced. In the old days they used to come to Martinsville each Saturday and afflli ate with one. another around the stores and other places and then go home happy and singing. . In this optimistic mood they were easy . to approach on any subject and often on election day could be led out in a dlscusion of politics and candidates which was highly satisfactory. -Now, however, they ' seldom come to town and when they do they maintain their characteristic dignity and go home without singing. ; The Crabbites are pretty strong in this faith .Allowing rattlesnakes to bite the most enthusiastic of the church workers is one of the favorite diversions. With proper faith . the bites are harmless, they declare, and they do not seek any of Martinsville's artesian water to heal the wounds. DRUNKENNESS CURABLE DIS EASE.
