THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, APRIL, 12, 1913.
The Editor Maui News.
As a friend from the mainland I
must acknowledge tlie grent plea
sure and satisfaction I took in your
beautiful Island scenery and the
well-kept home grounds of your
Island dwellers. On all sidss I saw
that improvement and development
weie going hand in hand. I was
uch interested in hearing of the
prospective parking of the grounds
near the Knights of Pythias Hall,
and in noting the Extension of
your Bank Building, and the other
considerable construction work going
on in your city of Wailuku. I
heard also of the extension planned
for the Pioneer Hotel at Lahaina.
With all this in mind I am more
than ever forcibly impressed with
the fact that when all clean up their
home grounds it makes a "spotless
town". If you could get the few
careless or thoughtless ones in your
community, and throughout your
Island to clean up the occasional
unsightly places, you would soon be

in the territory. For instance, just
opposite the proposed newrpak ing
near the Knights of Pythias grounds
are a few unsigh tly small "buildings
that stand out harshly and which a
few gallons of paintof an harmonious
shade would render inconspicuous
and remove the discordant note they
project into their neighborhood.
There are undoubtedly other more
or less unsightly spots that could be
easily corrected at slight expense
and trouble, thereby greatly enhan
cing the Talue and attractiveness of
your entire Island. So much am I
impressed with this thought that I
am sending you herewith an ad

one town profited by cleaning up,

This year Chicago's Motor Truck
Show was undoubtedly the largest
and most valuable exhibition of this
kind ever held according to Mr. C.
R. Norton, Truck Sales Manager of
the Packard Motor Car Company.
peaking of the growth of the truck
business, Mr. Norton gave out some
figures showing the proportions to
which the industry has grown.
"Our 1913 exhibit in the First
Regiment Armory, represented n
cash value of $30,000 or about one
tenth of the entire value of the ex
hibits of the whole Show. Few
persons not actively engaged in the
motor truck business realize the
magnitude of this industry or the
extent of its growth during the last
"Manufacturers, merchants and
other business enterprises have in
vested upwards of 812,500,000 in
over 4,0O0Packard heavy duty trucks
and light commercial vehicles now
in daily service on the city streets
and country roads of, the United
States and Canada.
"In the express and transfer
business alone, we have sold 141
merchants over $1,000,000 worth
of trucks, while 105 breweries
operate Packard trucks aggregating
a valuation of more than $800,000.
These represent only two of the one
iundred and sixty-five lines of
business to which we have sold
heavy duty equipment.
"Our selling season is now at its
height, December recorded sales
totalling more then $800,000.
February's business was double that
recorded the same month last year,
and from present indications March
sales will break all previous records
in this department of our motor
First shipments of the new Pack
ard 48" were made this week.
The first month's sales of this model
exceeded the wonderful record made
by the previous "48", which was
practically sold out six weeks after
the announcement. This mid-winter
sales record of the new "48" ia
even more significant when it fa re
called that the former model made
its appearance at the height of the
The new Packard "48" embodies
all of the advanced engineering
features of the "38" left drive,
electric starter, separate magneto
ignition, and centralized control.
Left drive provides direct access
to the front compartment from the
curb and facilitates driving in traffic.
The electric self-starter is an in
tegral part of the car. To operate,
the driven pushes a button presses
the starting pedal and, as the motor
turns over, throws the ignition
Centralized control is exclusively
Packard. The control board is at
tached to the steering column just
below the steering wheel. The
ignition, starting, lighting and car
buretor controls are within easy
reach of the driver's hand.
The ignition is by Bosch high
tension rrfagncto and storage battery
both of which are entirely distinct
from the starting and lighting
Motor oiling is by forced feed to
the main bearings, with an auxili
ary system feeding oil directly to
the cylinder walls and automatically
regulated for the different power
The motor has six T-head cylin
ders, iVz by 52 inches. The
maximum horsepower of this motor
is 82 at 1720 R. P. M. The A. L.
A. M. rating is 48.
Several enclosed bodies, new in
design, have been added to the wide
range of styles comprehended in the
The Phaeton-runabout, designed
to fit the Phaeton chassis, is a
rakish two-passenger car. A slop
ing deck at the rear provides carry
ing space for two extra tires and an
ample compartment for luggage.
A door on either side gives free
access to this compartment.
The Brougham and Imperial
Limousine may be had in either the
double compartment or Salon type.
The Salon type is a single compart
ment lKidy which permits the owner
to drive without being separated
from the passengers in the rear.
The Cabette is a distinctive type of
body, designed as a gentlewoman's
town car. The Imperial Coupe is
a new style, seating four and de
signed to fit the runabout chassis.
The enclosed bodi s will be built
in two styles, to be known as Type
One and Type Two. Type One is
fitted with stationary rear side
windows, affording a more roomy
interior. Bodies of the Type Two
design will have as standard equip
ment - window regulators, drop cab
sides and drop rear side windows.
The new arm style folding seats
will be standard for both types.
Recently comment was made that
while the Cadillac was the first
motor car to be equipped with an
automatic electric starting device, it
was generally regarded as tho car
that least needed such a device as it
so frequently started by the spark.
In this connection a typical incident
was narrated in which a Cadillac
started on the spark after being five
weeks in transit on its way from
Detroit to Yancouver, B- C, the
charge of gas hnving been retained
in the cylinder all that time.
Now comes the Cadillac dealer at
Winnipeg with a similar incident
which puts the Yancouver story
completely in the shade.
Joseph McDonald, of Winnipeg,
about to depart for England, de
cided to take his Cadillac with him
and gave instructions for shipment.
The car was" drained and loaded
December 10th, its destination being
St. Johns, where it was to be trans
ferred to a steamer for the Old
Country. Transportation was so
slow, however, that before it arrived
three boats had sailed from St.
Johns. Mr. McDonald cabled , there
fore, to have it sent back to Winni
peg as there would not be time
enough for him to get any use out
of the car while aboard. The
Cadillac was caught at St. Johns
before it had been removed from
the freight car and was returned to
Winnipeg without being touched.
It arrived home and was unload
ed February 20th. Therefore dur
ing ten weeks of the cold season it
had remained in the freight car
Yet after unloading, it started on
the spark and the Winnipeg dealer
feels that he is therefore justified in
claiming the record for this parti
cular kind of Cadillac performance.
