For the next six Innings Sutton played a
strong, consistent game, keeping his aver

field, driving agnlnst time from a flying
start. In a 190-horse-power Bens, awtemeMle
of special design, covered the fasreet mile
yesterday traveled by a human being;
His time was 27 and 33-160 seconds. Noth
ing projected Into spsce by man, save a
bullet, ever has travelled at equal speed.
The previous record was set four
years ago by Marriott, who drove a spe
cial Stanley steamer one mile 2 seconds
at an average speed of 127.S miles an hour.
OtdfleH'a average today was 131.78.
Oldfleld again launched his great car
from a standing start for a mile against
time and crossed the finish line with an
othtr record. His time was 40 and 63-190
seconds as against 41 and 23-100 seconds
made with the same ear by Hemmery In
The timing for both races was done by
C. H. Warner, official timer for the Ameri
can Antnrnoblle association, with the same
mechanical device he used at the Atlanta
and Indianapolis speedwaysi and which has
been officially adopted by the association.
Ralph De Palfmv Oldfleld's rival, who
was unable to start against him because
of1 a broken piston, acted aa representative
of . the tflhtest board. A surveyor's cer
tificate was filed for the distance posts,
and Bnly the formal acceptance of the
board Is necessary before the record passes
officially Inta the history of the annihil
ation of distance;
The best previous official record for the
mile from a flying start by a gasoline car
Is two miles In 68 seconds, made at
Ormond Beach, Fla., In a -horse-power
car by Demogeot In 1908 at an average of
132.3 miles an hour.
The bent speed ever made by a locomotive
Is five miles In two minutes thirty seconds
over the Plant system. Olen H. Curtis
the aviator, covered a mile from a flying
start In an elght-eyllnder motorcycle In
4"4 seconds In 1907. '

COPPER MINES LANDED UPON

PLAKTS FUMES INJURE FORESTS
Sulphurous t.nses Destroy Nature's
(iardesi, and Besides, Company's
Methods are Unnecessary,
WASHINGTON. March 17.-Satlfled that
the present methods of operating Its smelt
ers by the Anaconda Copper Mining com
pany are not only destructive In widespread
degree to the surrounding natural forests,
but unnecessary. Attorney General Wlcker
sham today caused a bill In equity to be
filed at Helena, Mont., against the com
pany. The bill asks for a permanent In
junction to compel the company to operate
Its plant at Anaconda In such a manner
as to end the destruction.
The company has resisted the demand of
the government that the methods of smelt
ing be changed and among other conten
tions has represented thst It would cost
millions of dollars to do so, besides the
loss accruing from the temporary shutting
down of the plants. The attorney general,
however, announces that the suit will be
pressed vigorously, unless, as he hopes, the
company will co-operate voluntarily with
the government to bring about a termina
tion of the existing conditions.
Frlenly Acton of No Avail.
At the Department of Justice the state
ment was made that the suit was not filed
until every possible friendly method had
Amendments to secure accession of the
Injuries from the smelter were under way
some time before the close of President
Roosevelt's administrations, and the min
ing companies were then notified that suits
would be brought unless definite action
wn taken by the smelters to stop
the wholesale destruction of the for
ests, resulting from the distribution of
sulphuric fumes over a wide area of the
Country. Instead of attempting to remedy
the situation, the companies, it Is declared,
represented to Mr. Roosevelt that they
could operate their plants In no other
manner than that then in use.
President Roosevelt ordered a full Inves
tigation and took a personal interest In the
hearing. The claims advanced by the
Anaconda company, under which they
sought to avoid being sued, it Is declared,
were not new, but were Identical with
those made In two other suits under which
similar injuries' were stopped, one case be
ing by the government against the Moun
tain Copper company In California and the
other by the state of Georgia against the
Ducktown, Tenn., company.
Company Foreseen Ruin.
In each of these cases It was claimed
that adverse action' would mean the clos
ing of -the mines and smelters and the
discharge of thousands of men. Injunc
tions, however, were granted in both In
stances, but neither mlnea nor smelters
were closed. Instead, the companies spent
the money necessary to convert the harm
ful fumes Into a valuable product and
many additional men were given work.
On behalf of ths Montana smelters the
contention was made-that they could not
convert the fumes Into acid as had been
done in California,, but a full Investiga
tion' of this claim by leading experts has
satisfied the government of the entire fea
sibility of converting the fumes at-Anaconda
