MOTOR NOTES. I BRITISH GENIUS' TRIUMPHS. I (From Our Motoring Correspondent). I The success of the Vickers-Vimy-Rolls- Royce aeroplane, piloted by Captain Rosa Smith in making the first flight to Aus- tralia, marks the dawn of an age when aerial travel will become universal. As a triumph for British genius it will rank with the greatest achiev-ements in his- tory, and the name and fame of F. H. Royce will deserve to rank with those of Stephenson, Watt, Parsons, and the other great inventors, whose fame is immortal. Tho gallant quartette, of Australians who rna.rubed the aeroplane on its trip half way round tho globe arc heroes all, and doubt- iess the monetary reward will be the ImA evidence of appreciation their- felLow-coun- evi d ene,e of trymcn wiU show them. A curious feature of this Australian flight is the comparative secrecy with which it has been accomplished. Beyond the merest paragraph stating that Captain R.o.s.s Smith had started, the pajiers were silent as to his progress, and not one man in a thousand could have told off hand if the Australian or his French competitor wore ahead in the world-race. Even to the very last day of the trip, nobody out- side those immediately concerned with aviation appeared to take the slightest interest in the matter, and it was only when the news was cabled from Port Dar- win, and the King's cablegram to the winner, with its happily phrased expres- sion of "bringing Australia nearer," that the public woke up to realise what had been done. I A ROMANCE OF THE AIR. When the oomplete story of the 27 days' flight comes to be toid, if ever it may be, it will be a romance -of the air as interest- ing as the voyage of Columbus. From tho paint of view of variation of climate alone, the journey which began in a snow storm, and finished in midsummer, after passing through every variety of weather, from arctic to tropical, would make the physical hardships of the trip doubly severe. Add to this the fact that for the latter part of the journey the route lay over unflown" coun- try and the peril of the adventure would appear insuperable. Only the sub- limest faith in the Vickers machine and the Rolls-Royce engines could have sus- tained Captain Ross Smith and his com- panions in their long flight over land and sea. Not the least interesting phase of the story, when it is Old, will be the details 1 of preparation in the way of supplies en route. To take the most important mat- ters, namoly, fuel and lubrication, it was absolutely essential to have large sup- plies of both. at every possible alighting place along the road. What this would mean in the sthape of quantities is difficult to calculate, but apparently the Shell and Oastrol people had amply provided for all possible contingencies. The lubrication of the twin Rolls-Royce engines was an accomplishment of which Messrs Wakefield may be justly proud. Tho extremes of heat and cold through which the machine passed would consti- tute a most severe test of any lubricant. But throughout the tens of millions of re- volutions between London and Port Dar- win, Castrol R was the faithful servitor of the twin engines. as it had been of the two engines whion carried Captain Sir John Alcook across the Atlantic. I EXHIBITION OF AERONAUTICS. Speaking of Captain Aloock's Atlantic flight, the Vickers-Vimy-Rolls-Royco machine was formally presented to the nation on Monday. The ceremony took place at the Science Museum, South Ken- sington, whero a temporary Exhibition of Aeronautics is being hold. The great machine, which suggested an imprisoned e;ctgic in its na-rrow (lwartrs; occupifes fully half the floor space of the gallery where the exhibition is being held. It looks 1-ttie the worse for its 1600 miles' journey and unfortunate landing in an Irish bog. One of the Rolls-Royce engineA has been dismantled, and is lying on the floor, a huge fo-ur-bladod propeller beside it to ibliow okwer examination. Among the exhibits we several historic models, induding the model of Dr. Hen- aon's aeroplane, built te long ago as 1843. Unfortuwatel y for the learned invcntor- whose plane by the way is almost' up-to- dato--he lived half a century before Mr F. H. Royce. As the internal combustion engine was unknown m his day, his aero- plane never soared. Other exhibits in- clude a model of Bleriot's croes-channel machine, Wilbur Wright's original mach ine, and practically replicas or models of laJl the machines which have gone to make aeronautical history. One of the most interesting is the actual engine which won the aerial Derby some seven years ago. Although it has been dismantled for the past seven years, a curious feature of the exhibit as it stands in South Kensington is that the cylinders of the (Jtiomc machine still drip castor oil after all these years, a wonderful testi- monial of the permanency and efficiency of Castrol R as a lubricant. I ECONOMY OF MOTOR TRACTORS. The motor tractor for agricultural pur- poses is in the phase of having emerged from the stage of uncertain advantage and doubt, and having proved its worth. And now manufacturers are getting orders faster than they can carry them out. The Lincoln trials created enormous in- terost amongst agriculturists, and a large number of converts were undoubtedly made there. It will, therefore, be a mat- ter Of considerable interest to learn that preparations for the 1920 S.M.M. T. trials are in full swing. The preliminary arrangements are already occupying the Agricultural Committee, and it is antici- pated that the event will be even itiore ambitious in character than that of last year. The site is not yet decided upon, but several offers of suitable sites have been made. The argument has been ¡rot forward ] that tractors are move expensive to run than horsos. I admit that on first showing this might appear to bo the case, but even without taking into full consideration the present exceptionally high cost of forage, I think that there is not the slightest

I LUXURY MANSION FOR MILLIONAIRES. ELABORATE COMMUNAL SCHEME. A number of New York millionaires (says a Times correspondent) who have been unable to find suitable accommoda- tion in that overcrowded city have decided to provide for themselves. They have given ordfers to architects and building contracborg to proceed with ?\e erection of a.n apartment building on which they will spend £ 800,030. They have acquired a site in the choicest part of New York occupying an entire block, which itself is wortfi miBions of dollars. The flats will be modest affairs of 20 to 30 rooms each, with eight or 10 bathrooms, while for bachelors there will bo provided a few apartments of four or five rooms. In t^o basement will be a restaur ant directed by no loss a peasoT) than Louis Sherry, tone former presiding genius of the Fifth Avenuo Restaurant, which boro his name, and was the choicest resort of its kind in the city tiM with the coming of prohibition he decided to close it down. Sherry will serve exquisite meals wherever they are required. There will be a spacious ball room 00 the pramoecs. The servant question will not exist as far as the tenants are cancra-ncd as a corps of trained serving mm and women, including butlers, chambermaids, and valets, will be maintained by trie manage- ment. Pfominqpt among the tenants of the new building will be members of tj:ie great Dupont chemical and explosive con- cerns, who are worth untold millions.
CARNARVON COUNTY I COUNCIL'S TELEPHONE. I AN ACCOCNT FOR TRUNK FEES. J [■ Major Breese, in the House of Com- mons on Monday, asked the Postmaster- General if he was aware that instructions had been officially issued to the Telephone Exchange Office for the Carnarvon dis- trict that caMs were not to be accepted from the Carnarvonshire County Coun- oil oiffces at Carnarvon, and if he would state the reason for suA drastic action, having regard to the serious impeding of the work of an important public crtfice without notice given or cause assigned to the Clerlk to the County Council. Mr Pike Pease (Assistant): Foikfwing the usual procedure, telephone trunk faci- Jities were withdrawn on December 5th, because, notwithstanding three applica- tions, the account for trunk fees incurred during the month of October was stid outstanding. The facilities, however, should not have been withdrawn in suon a case as this, and appropriate steps are being taken to prevent similar action in future.

DEVELOPING A STONE I QUARRY. STONES FOR HOUSES AND HOW TO I GET THEM. (By E. T. BROWN). I The working of stone is the oldest art of which any record exists. Witih implements of stone the cave man was able to fortify his habitation and defend himseff from his enemies, to obtain and prepare his food. As man developed his work in atone im- proved. Stonhenge, and other famous landmarks, testify to the beauty of design, tie accuracy of workmanship, and to his ability to move and ereot monuments of colloeal size. Then follows written history on slabs of stone; then the written and printed word. So has stone played a vast- ly important work throughout all the ages. The question of the moment, however, ■fcihen increased production is of such supreme importance to the future pros- perity of Great Britain, is whether the quarrying industry has advanced as it should, whether our quarries have been developed and equipped in acoorcLaince with a comprehensive plan to Sidd a maximum of output with a minimum of waste, with reasonable uniformity of pro- duction, and capacity which will exceed demand. The ajiswer so far aa the past is concerned is "No;" the answer as far as the future is concerned depends upon the people of this oountry. They can enor- mously increase the yield; they can enor- mously decrease the waste. To increase the yield and reduce the waste should be the aim of every quarry owner and every (juarry worker. The thousands of aban- doned quarries throughout the country testify to the economic waste which has cruaracteirised the development of our quar- .-í\S during the past half century. How to avoid this economic waste and how to develop quarries, both new and old, to meet the enormous demand of the present day, is a problem to which everyone who i, interested in this industry and who has the future welfare of his country a,t heart should irive his thoughtful attention. ¡ METHODS OF DEVELOPMENT. I Mr Herbert E. Fletcher, a well known American authority on the subject of quarrying, has.recently stat&d that there is a sure way by which the output of our qiwrries may be greatly increased. This is by a careful survey of the deposit by the surveyor regarding the character of the stone as revealed by analysis and teet-s, the. extent and nature of the deposit, its contact with other rocks, the direction and character of joints, especially bed joints, and all other scientific faots whioh his atudy of the deposit may develop and which have a bearing on the subject. if his report indicates a deposit of sufficient extent to warrant a development, joint structure favourable to economicai produc- tion, freedom from seams, stripes, knots, eap and other imperfections, then the judgment of the practical quarrymaai and the technical expert should be confirmed by core drill exploration. It is strange that quarrymen in the past have not used the core drill more exten- sively" because it thaa proved its great worth |wherever it .has been used. It is the cheapest possible insurance against un- necessary expenditures for development of worthless deposits. It has positive value in de.termining the location and direction of beds and joipts, it produces samptes hundreds of feet below the surface if needed. In fact, it provides the data needed by the quarry man and the engin- eer to enable them to plan the location and development of the quarry so that operations can be conducted along scienti- fic lines. If at this point in the survey all informa- tion indicates a deposit of material which has merit and for which a demand may be expected, then the survey should be con- tinued. It should include the probable amount of capital available for the enter- prise, the location and extent of possible markets for the product, the estimated cost of production, transportation, power, labour, housing conditions for employees, watur supply, fcud, and last but not least, the probable life of the quarry, in order to maie proper charges for depletion. Stone of all kinds is badly needed to- day, and at present the demand is greatly in excess of the auppiy. Quarry owners have an opportunity greatly to extend their operations and so increase their out- put to the maximum. By so doing they will not only be benefitting themselves And their employees, but they will be bene- fitting the nation, and doing their share towards the maintenance of Great Britain's industrial and financial supremacy.
MR HERBERT LEWIS, M.P., I AND THE COALITION. I APPEAL FOR SUPPORT FOR PREMIER. I Speaking on Friday night at a political demonstration held at Blaenau Festiniog. Mt J. Herbert Lewis, M P., Parliamentary Sec- rdary of the Board of Education, said that he had eome ther; to --i)eik on the present political situation with the full assent of Mr Haydn Jones, who had been an admirable representative of Merionettis-hire interests in Parliament. After reviewing the history of the Coalition Govcruineuts lormed dnring the war, point- rig out that the co-operation of political partto.. led to the passing of the greatest mea- sure of electoral reform ever carried in this country and also the ffreatcst Education Act, Mr Lewis referred to the results achievod hy the Peace Conference and the principal Acts of Parliament pasnxl during the most hard- working and fruitful session of Parliament he had ever known. The Prime Minister had another object in obtaining a mandate for the continuance of the Coalition, namely, the work ot reconstruction, for the asrisiance of which the Housing, Transport. Electricity, and Min- istry of ileaftli Bills were designed. With regard to temperance Mr Lewis aid that Mr Lloyd George had a plan under which, if it had betii adopted, by this tiiao hall l-ile Imblic-hou., in the country would have txen closed for ever. and which Would have made it infinitely easier for tljc public in every district to have expressed their own wi3. The enemies of the scheme were the Iri-h brewers and distillers, supported by the Irish members and An influential section ot tlitl Ternpuwwc party in this country. Out ot the wicek of his bill Mr Lloyd George succeeded in i>teservinff a substantial and valu- able part of the carso, namely, the powers of the Liquor Control Board, which reduced the hoars of driaking from fifteen to five and a half In concession, Mr Herbert Lewis appeated for support for Mr Ltoyd George in the diffi. catt task that lay before him. Daring the war ths services of the Prime Mkiitter to the coiiutry wm jwk*tess He was the one man for the country in iUheur of danger, and the welt-being of the conalry in its present critic- al situation called for him still to continue at the bcDa.
"OVERTIME MUST BE I WORKED." 11AILW AY MEN'S LEADERS WORD I TO SIR E. GEDDES. I Sir Eric Gerld, Minister of lransport, who was speaking on Tuesday at Bristol on the sahject of traffic congestaon, was ahki to dot tiie and cross the t's" of ttume of Mr Lloyd iieorge's statements on the Mine quegtioll.

THE 1920 FORD ELECTRIC I LIGHTING ARRANGEMENT. Mr R. T. Nicholson, lin an interesting article in the current issue of -"The Motor," describes the main features of the new sdf-starting Ford (1920) model. The new lighting equipment, it is pointed out, represents another great advance over the old. Hitherto, the electric hght wiring has been in series," so that if one bulb burnt out, both headlights went out. Now, each light—-the two headlights and tail-light—is wiitd independently an parallel, so that if one of them burns out, the other two still continue to give full illumination.
A HINT TO FORD OWNERS. I To avoid wear on clevis pins take them out, and cover with a good coating of grease before replacing. The lubrication holes in the chassis side members just over where the handbrake cross rod is attached to the dhassis on each side are often over- looked. Good lubrication of these points hdllp greafhly to the easy working of the handbrake.
.CHANGING FUELS. I One of the most uneconomical ways of running a car is (says "lbe Motor") to keep on changing over from petrol to benzole. Benzole is quite easily obtain- able now by garages, and it is in the interests of ail that motorists should not • bo put off with the ready plea that the garage proprietor can find no saJe for benzole, and therefore does not stock it- According to Mr A. Newton, the ohsef engineer of the Automobile Association, the N B.A. specification benzole will show no signs of freezing up to 15 ocgreos ot frost.

OFFICER AS CO-RESPONDENT I VISIT TO A RHYL HOTEL. I On Friday, in the Divorce Court, the Presi- dent heard the undefended petitiou of Mr Bernard Rouse for the dissolution of his mar- riage on the ground, of his wife's misconduct with Lieut. A. C. Goody. against whom dam- ages were claimed. Petitioner said he married on August 13th, 1902 and there was one child living. They lived together happily till 1910, when she join- ed the theatrical profession and went on tour. In January. 1915, petitioner joined the army, his wife going to stay at the White Lion at Rhyl. In November he received a letter from her saying she had committed miscon- duct. He also received a letter from co-respondent saying he understood that the petitioner had not lived with his wife for years, and if he desired to have evidence of misconduct it could be found. Evidence was piven that the respondent and co-respondent had committed misconduct at the White Lion at Rhyl. His lordship granted petitioner a decree nisi with costs, and assessed the damages at 1:200,
