Automobile Club of Pittsburg Announces Winners of Competiton.
Special to The New York Times.
PITTSBURG, Penn., Dec. 4.—Last Winter the Automobile Club of Pittsburg invited D. Ward King of Maitland, Mo., inventor of the King split log drag for earth roads to make an address before a meeting of club members, Road Commissioners, and Supervisors of the counties on the western part of the State. A few days after the meeting the club announced that it would offer a prize to any Road Supervisor who would make one of the drags and use it on the roads under his direction. Twenty of the drags were built, and a number of stretches of road entered in the contest arranged by the club.
They contended recently and last week the club entertained about 200 Township Commissioners and Road Supervisors at its clubhouse in Pittsburg, when the winners received the prizes offered by the club. Edward Kneeland, President of the club, presided at the meeting, which followed the luncheon, and made the principal address. R. W. Bailey, a member of the Pittsburg Club's Good Roads Committee, and a number of other members made short addresses.
The winners of the prizes were as follows: John Kirk, Broughton, Steuben Township, $100; Thomas Conroy, Natrona, Harrison Township, $50; George H. Yost, Hite Station, East Deed Township, $50; Christ Stark, Tarentum, East Deer Township, $40; R. M. McKelvey, Gibsonia, $30; William F. Moore, Tarentum, Fawn Township, $15.
