Weekly Letter Of Von
The steHiiitfi "Ventura" brought lor
the von Hamm-Young Co. thin week
the Arm Kimol Kur truck over
brought to the IhIhihIw. This truck,
which is of the 1 1-2 to 2 ton typo,
was especially ordered by the Oithu
leu & Electric Co. iur Ice delivery
aiound town. It Is equipped with a
special ice delivery body, of a typo
which Is very popular on the main
laud. The motor Is capable of fur
nishing '10 h. p., and is equipped with
a governor which allows the car to bo
driven on the high near from 3 to 25
miles per hour.
Other cam brought In by tho Ven
tura this week include a shipment of
the well-known Cadillac cars. One
of these, a handsome phaeton is to bo
shipped to Mr. P. A. Romano, of KI
lattea, Kauai. Several of the popular
o-passenger touring cars, all equipped
vlth electric self-starters, electric
lighting system and all the latest
wrinkles of automobile accessories
were delivered to customers who were
anxiously awaiting their arrival, one
of them going to Mr. o. R. Olsetu. or
Knhuku, another one to Mr. W. D.
McCallutn of Honolulu and a third to
Mr. F. Anlehl of Wninlua. One of
tho cars just arrived is being held for
Mr. Alfred Castle, a special order hav
ing been received by letter from Mr.
Castle who Is to bo back in Honolulu
next week. Ho wanted to bo sure and
have a new Cadillac reserved for him
and have it meet him at tho steamer
on his arrival In Honolulu.
Tho Cadillac car is so popular on
tbe mainland that It Is almost Im
possible to get deliveries. Fortunate
ly by anticipating the Demand The
von Hamm-Young Co. were, able to
get a few more cars, which are now
op the way. When this shipment is
exhausted, however, It will bo very
difficult to get any more Cadillac
cars for some time.
One of the two pretty Overland 4
passenger touring cars which arrived
last week has been sold to K. Chilian,
Information has just been received
by the von Hamm-Young Co. that
the well known Stevens-Duryea cars
have met with such enormous success
that the factory Is obliged to put Ih a
new much larger plant to take care
of the tremendous increaso of busi
ness. The following Information regard
ing the new plant will probably be
of interest to local people.
"Water-proof lloors to prevent not
only leakage but the penetration of
oven dampness, and dust-proof con
struction throughout, are two of the
vnusual features which mark the ifew
fatovens-Duryea automobile factory
building. When completed the plant
will be one of the finest industrial
establishments In the world.
The buildings of the new Stevens
Duryea plant are all to be very large
In ground area, but restricted in
height, to save having to lift and
lower partly finished cars. Tho first
of the brick and steel structures, in
to which the company Is about mov
ing now, Is SOS feet long witli a front
tage of 80 feet on the broad boule
vard which is one boundary of the
40-acre tract the model Stevens-Duryea
plant will occupy, it is only four
stories high, but each floor lu.ving an
a'ea of 40,000 stpiare feet of avail
able spaco this one building gives as
much working room as many good
sized factories have all-told.
J. Frank Duryea built the first suc
cessful American gasolino car within
four miles of the new Stevens-Duryea
p'ant, and every Stovens-Duryea car
or "Duryea wagon" as they were
called at first, has been produced with
in the same radius of tho little shop
where ho made his early experiments.
In 1901, twenty cars were built by
the Duryea Motor Wagon Company,
predecessor of the Stevens-Duryea
Company, and the only recognized au
tomobile building concern In this
country at that time. Tho nuniUor in
creased steadily until for the last live
years tho annual production has nver
aged more than 1200 cars; and In the
meantime the number of motor car
builders has increased from one to
Tho expansion of tho Stovens-Dur-
ea Company has nlways been along
rather conservative llnes-r-wlilch Is
tho nioro remarkablo In view of the
fact that the company has Introduc
ed most of tho fundamental improve
ments la motor car construction. Tho
policy has been not to branch out un
til automobile standards became set
tled; and tlio concern was satisfied
Kith a plant of modernto capacity
while It was bringing out tho six
cylinder motor It was tho pioneer
builder of "sixes" and tho peculiari
ties of construction which it origin
al ed, but which have since become
fundamental in lino cars.
It Is proposed in tho now plant to

The Kissel Kar, for wlflch the von

ed for Mr. 1 P. Choate, Chicago
manager for the Kissel Kar Co., how-
over, to find a1 new stunt for the Kis
sel, which Is to say the least, very
remarkable. The report, which the
von Hamm-Young Co. received of this
stunt reads as follows:
"F. P. Choate, Chicago manager for
the Kissel Kar Co.', i.3 responsible for a
new story that Is appearing on auto
mobile row anil causing numerous
laughs. Manager. Choato declares ho
will take an oath as to the veracity
of this story, and ho challenges any
cno to produce a truthful one that is
"It seems that Mr. Choato and A.
13. Holmes were driving up In Wiscon
sin last week in a big CO horsepower
Kissel Kar. Manager Choato was at
the wheel. The roads were uncertain,
not to say bad. The car finally camo
to the top of a hill. At the bottom
was considerable water and much tall
dead grass. Mr. Choate hesitated.
'"Shall wo try It?' he asketV Mr.
-sure was tuc answer, "Let 'cm
"And Manager Choate then and
there 'Let er go.' The big car sped
down the hill and dashed through tlfe
water just as a flock of frightened
mallard ducks was attempting to "es
cape. The ducks were not as quick
as the car, however, for when the big
Kissel Kar finally reached dry land
two thoroughly dead mallard ducks
wore found in the tonneau.
" ' I wiv? more surprised than the
ducks,' said Mr. Choate. Tvo hunted
almost everything in the world, but 1
never before hunted mallards In a
motor car. The two we bagged were
nice am fat. Did we eat 'em? Well
I should guess. Wo had them broil
ed for dinner, and I never tasted any
thing better in my life." "
In a recent attempt at hill climb
IngV a Cartercar ascended an Incline
of 58 1-3 jier cent at Forest Grove,
Ore. In tho past tho Cartercar has
very frequently driven up a 00 per
cent incline which Is about 5 per cent
steeper than tho average car can
D. II. Hull, representative, qf tho
Cartercar Company on tho i'acilic
Coast, had arranged with some con
tractors to build an incline at Forest
Grovo and then, without having 'seen
it, ho took a party from Portland out
te show thorn what the Cartercar
could really do In hill climbing work.
Upon his arrival, ho was greatly as
tonished (o see that tho contractors
had made a mlstako and built tl)o up
right portions of tho wooden track

called for. This mado a 17 1-2 foot

Mr. Hull would not back out with
out trying after h0 had gone to so
much trouble, theroforo proceeded to
seo what tho ear would do on so
steep a grade. To his pleasure and
tho surprlso or those who were with
him, tho car climbed tho grade with
little difficulty and, on repeated at
tempts, went to tho top with seven
passengers in the machine.
It Is said on the coast that this is
tho steopest incline any car has over
