THE MAUI NKWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1913,'
Echo of Automobile Collision of July
Third is Heard in District
Judge McKny decided the two
cafes in winch Scyo, a Japanese,
sued J. M. Cunningham for damage
to his automobile, and the cross suit
in which Cunningham sued Seyo,
also for damage to his car. The
court decided, tliut the affair was
about an evn break, and thought
that it would be a hard matter to
say who was ot blame for the colli
sion thatoecured on the eve of July
Third, opposite the Wadsworth re
sidence. The verdict was that each
party pay its own repair bill.
The Japanese swore that he was
on his proper side of the road com
ing up from Kahului, and that
Cunningham ran into him. Cun
ningham's witnesses swore that their
car was on the proper side going
toward Kahului, and that Cunning
ham even left the road on the right
hand side in an effort to avoid the
Police officer Silva swore that
when he-arrived at the scene of the
accident, the Cunningham car was
at right angles to the road and that,
while the rear wheels of the machine
were off the oiled portion of the
road on the light side, the middle
of the car was about the center of
the road. Judge McKay, who went
to the scene of accident and placed
his own car in the position that
Cunningham's car was supposed to
have rested after accident," said in
court yesterday, that it would be
impossible for the car to have lyen
as described by Silva and that the
police officer must have been mis
taken. The judge also said that, if, as
the evidence showed, the light from
the Japanese car was seen reflected
on the Wadsworth fence, the Japa
nese must have been well to the left
of the road when coming up on the
night in question. He also said
that there was far more room on
the right side, coming up from Ka
hului. than on the rigWt, coming
down the road, and that the Cun
ningham car could not go far over
as the other might have, on account
of the bank on the maitka side.
However, the judge said it was
too difficult to fix the blame on one
autoists or the other and, therefore,
decided as mentioned before. At
torney Murphy, who appeared for
the Japanese is not satisfied, and
says he will appeal against the de
cision of Judge McKay.

E. O. HALL & SON, Ltd,
Company, was one of the principal
speakers at the banquet tendered
the members of the Society of
Atitor-obile Engineers and their
Hnglish guests during the recent
gathering in Detroit. Mr. Iceland's
vision as a manufacturer is broad
ened by deals and his remarks set
forth these ideals in a manner that
was both serious and humorous.
Mr. Leland described a model
factory making a model car. No
such factory exists in Detroit, he
said, nor anywhere else 011 top of
earth. He divulged that the art of
motor manufacture could be con
densed into two words which he
would presently pass out gratuit
ously. He then took the hide off
certain motor car manufacturers
and nailed it securely to a nearby
fence. Here are a few of the nails.
"Automobile manufacture will
never reach a high plane until they
stop making fool cars.
"Science, time-study, efficiency
experts, cost systems and modern
scientific management are all right
but it takes common sense to attain
"Get young men into your plants
and teach them the business from
the ground up.
"There are too many inspectors
and bosses in the shops.
"There are too many cost keepers
and other unproductive employes.
"Too many parts must be thown
into the scrap heap instead of mak
ing them' right in the first place.
"There are 30,000,000 people in
this country who want motor cars.
And China is just waking up."
And then Mr. Lelaud gathered
the meeting to his heart and whis
pered the magic pair of words that
comprise the art of perfect automo
bile manufacture "knowing how."
One of the entertainment features
prepared for the members of the
Society of Automobile Engineers
and their British guests, who re
cently gathered in Detroit, was a
novel moving picture show which
proved to be not only unique but
also one of the most interesting of
the many events arranged for the
visitors. The films display! con
sisted of moving pictures, ti;en in
London, on the famous miniature
Cadillac roadster built to carry two
children and which is now in the
possession of the little Prince Olaf
This tiny car was constructed
under the direction of F.S. Bennett,
the Cadillac dealer in London. It
is an exact reproduction of the
larger Cadillac, except that its
power plant consists of the Delco
electric cranking device which is a
regular feature of the big car. With
the power of the cranking device
the little machine will travel 15
miles pn one battery charge.
The little car' was sold to the
Dowager Queen Alexandra, who
presented it to her favorate grand
child, Prince Olaf. Before the
car was shipped to Norway it made
a trip through the crowded traffic
of London and the unique moving
pictures shown the visiting engi
neers, were reproductions of this
"ALL IOUUS" WALK
Jf you are the victim of indiges
tion and appear at your office each
morning with a well developed
grouch, tr running around the
mom on all fours like a cat just
after you have ti'ken your morning
repast. This is the advice of a
Paris physician, and he makes it
with all seriousness. He doesn't
claim it is a panacea for all sorts of
indigestion, but he recommends it
for relief of stagnation in the
stomach a condition where the
food becomes massed and prevents
a free action of the intestinal juices.
The effect of his "all-fours"
treatment is to agitate the stomach,
acting us a massage, and thus aid
ing it to discharge its contents,
lie has proved by a series of chemi
cal experiments, assisted by the
X-ray, that the emptying of the
stomach progressed with much
greater rapidity when the patient
galloped around the room for five
minutes in the attitude of the house
A French process of "electro
curing" timber, is declared to give
perfect seasoning in a single night.
With lead-plate electrodes on each
side, the timber is placed in a solu
tion containing 10 per cent of borax,
o per cent of resin and a little soda;
and application of the current ex
pels the sap and fills the wood cells
with the borax and resin.
HUM ANN STAND ERECT.
"Babies crawl rather than walk
because they are still quadrupeds,"
says a French scientist. "Their
inability to walk is not due to lack
of practice or to the weakness of
muscles, but to the fact that their
bodily structure is that of a four
footed animal and not that of a
two-footed one. In his growth from
a germ onward to manhood every
man passes through all the stages
of evolution. At birth he has just
reached the stage of quadrupeds.
"The normal position of a body
depends upon the position of the
hip joints. In a baby, as in a
monkey, a perpendicular line
through the centre of gravity of the
body passes in front of the hip
joints. Thus the heavy body falls
forward and the arms are used to
"It is the shape of a baby's spine
that makes its centre of gravity for
ward of the hip joints. As the
baby grows the curvature of the
spine changes little by little until
the centre of gravity is behind the
hip joints. This makes him stand
up naturally, inevitably.
"That he totters and falls when
first he essays to stand upright is
due to his not yet having learned to
balance his body upon the hinges of
his hip joints.
"The natural tendency of the
human body would be to fall back
ward. To counteract this tendency
man has upon the front of each hip
joint a band of powerful muscles,
which no other animal possesses,
because no other animal needs it.
Tnis holds him erect. None of the
monkeys has it, for the centre of
gravity of a monkey is still forward
of the hip joints, and the natural
position of a monkey is all on fours.
Standing erect they all need to use
''So when a baby is learning to
stand erect lie is passing physically
from the quadruped stage of evolu
tion to the anthropoid or monkey
Dr. Henry Durville of Paris,
whose feats of mummification and
preservation of animal and vegeta
ble bodies by thu magnetism that
passes from his hands are attested
by well-known physicians, now as
serts that by similar passes he had
been able to extend in an extraordi
nary way the results obtained by
Dr. Carrel in preserving life in the
detached parts of living organism.
According to Dr. Durville, he has
succeeded in keeping a frog's heart,
immersed in a seven-tenths of 1 per
cent, solution of salt water, beating
for twenty-four hours and more by
"magnetizing" it with passes from
time to time.
In this way, he says he also has
succeeded in making the hinder
parts of a frog respond to an electric
current fifteen days after killing the
animal, three days being the ex
treme limit under normal circum
stances. He further declares he tested his
theory with two frogs' hearts. One
of these which had ceased to beat
he put iu a magnetiud serum; the
other, still beating, was immersed
in an ordinary serum. At the end
of several days the magnetized heart
began to beat and continued to beat
at the contact of an eleetic current,
while the other was completely dead.
Dr. Durville began his experi
ments with a stHdy of the effect of
magnetism on microbes, and says
he is able to stupefy or even kill
cholera germs. He says also that
he has completely mummified a
human hand by passes.
