Nothing could be learned as to

The rumor that Dr. Sun Tat Sen.

in the near 'future, bids fair to be
realized, according to statements
made yesterday by a delegation
local Chinese which were to the
feet that the revolutionist and republic-maker
would pass through Hawaii

United States to raise a war fund to
enable the Chinese government to

There is a possibility, or rather
probability, that it will turn out that
the expense to which banana claim
ants are being put by this representa
tive will go for nothing. It is no:
likely that the legislature will anpro
priaie money to pay claims so formu-
of . lated, on their face, but that it will
ef- follow the Drecedent of the Chinatown
lire claims and provide for a commis
sion to receive and adjudicate claims.
In that event claims will have to be
made out in form either prescri'd by
the act creating sucii commission or
dictated by the commission itself un

People recognize now the importance
of engineering brains in their relation to
mechanical perfection. Without knowl
edge a smooth, simple, safe, satisfactory
car is impossible.
These cars were designed by 43 skilled
engineers gathered from Europe and
America, representing 97 factories. They
had a hand in building over 200,000
automobiles. These men represent about
all that has been learned in motor car
design. Some have made the greatest
headway of ail in designing six-cylinder
cars, Some are specialists in other lines-.
So the combined skill and knowledge of
all these men is focused upon the
perfection of HUDSON cars.
All who are motor-wise recognize the
importance of having a car built under
uch favorable conditions. That is why,
with the maximum of 1,000 cars for de
livery this month, only one out of three
of those wbd wul want HUDSONS wfll
be able to get them.
What better assurance could be offered
than that these men who possess about
all the knowledge that has thus far
been gained in automobile building have
joined in saying, MThe New HUDSONS
are the best we know."
The HUDSON "ZT is their four-
cylinder masterpiece. It sells at $1875,
completely equipped with electric self
cranking device and electric lights,
speedometer, clock, top, windshield and
twelve inch upholstery. There is nothing
more to buy.
The "54" HUDSON a Six, capable
of doing 65 miles an hour and a speed of
58 miles in 30 seconds from standing -start,
is offered as a car superior to any
automobile on the market regardless of
price. It sells at $2450, completely
finished and equipped as above. Prices
are t. o. b. Detroit.
