1903 - ACROSS THE CONTINENT IN AN AUTOMOBILE

News
Two Men Travel from San Francisco to New York - Have Reached Syracuse.

Special to the New York Times.

SYRACUSE. July 23. - Dr H. Nelson Jackson of Burlington, Vt., and Sewall K. Crocker of Tacoma, Washington, arrived here tonight in an automobile on a pleasure trip from San Francisco to New York. They started out two months ago to-day, and have been on the road ever since. They carry their own camping outfit and do their own cooking. Water tanks helped them across the prairies, where they went thirty-six hours without food.

An average of 120 miles a day was made, although they were obliged to stop nineteen days at one place. The distance to cover is 6,000 miles and they count on making it in good condition. It is the first automobile trip across the Continent. They go direct to New York City and then to Vermont.
