THE Chalmers "30" is the only
medium priced car that was
ever awarded the Glidden Trophy
Of ill the Gliddtn Touts, that of 1910 wss tha
longest, and by ftr'lhe nattiest, 't lasted for sixteen
running days and covered 2,851 milts. It stared at
Cincinnati and went " by way of Dallas, Texas,"
through ihittccn States to Chicago.
Words and pictures cannot make plain the racking
cobblestpoe toads of Kentucky the stump-studded
fotest trails of the Tennessee mountains the swamps
of Arkansas the deep, treacherous sands of Texas
the mud of Kansas the btldgeless southern stteamsor
the sweltering heat that punished carl and men alike.
It is the opinion of experts mho made this tout
that no car in the world could have completed it with a
perfect score. Yet, from Cincinnati to Louisville to
Nashtllle to Sheffield, Ala. 16 Memphis to Little
Kock to Hot Springs to Texarkana to Dallas to
Lanton, Oklahoma to Oklahoma City to Wichita,
Kansas eleven consecutive days out of the sixteen,
through the hardest part of the trip and for five
days aftcrevcry other car on the tour had been
penalized, not a single point could be assessed against
the Chalmers "30" the $1500 car $1600 with mag.
neto, I'rest-O.Lite tank and gas lamps
In all the history of motoring, there is no per
formancc like this. The Ulidden Trophy has never
been won before by a car costing less than $-1000

The Chalmers "30" has never been defeated
In any Important motoring event by any car of
Its price and power class. The Chalmers "Forty"
won the Dettoit Trophy In the 1909 Glidden Tour.
Chalmers cars have won more events of all kinds In
proportion to the number entered than other rars.
In addition to perfect mechanical performance,
you get In the Chalmeri all the beauty of lint and
finish that you can find In any car.
What mote could you ask In any car at any price
than you get in the medium-priced Chalmers I
We have never had so large a volume of business
as we have now. 1 here has never been so satisfying a
demand for Chalmers cars as thete has been since we
announced our 191 1 models. Yet this demand will
not affect the Chalmers policy of building can fir
qualify, not quantity.
We suggest, therefore, thai you place.your order
now, so as to be sure of getting the car that is .your
first choice. Chalmeri cars are the first choice
of those who look most carefully into the automo
bile question and know the most about automobile

t-lety, who pothered ut tho residence
of Mm. J. M. Whitney, the president,
on l'unnhou street, vestcrdny after
noon, Ilev. Witt. II. Oleson, secrctnry
of the Hawaiian Hoard of Missions,
delivered ono of the best, If not the
ablest, nddresscB In the history of
Mr. Oleson emphasized the fact
that he wns opposed to tho reopen
ing of the prohibition problem,
which has canted n great doal of ex
citement in Hawaii net. He believ
ed, however, that It nny liquor In
terests here attempted to tamper with
the present liquor laws, then It was
proper for nnjnno to appeal to Con
cress for substantial consideration.
He helloed, further, that It was best
to let well enough alone.
Mr. Olcfon, who hid tho nttcntton
of his audience nt his command, said
lu part as follows:
'lUsontincnt ngtlst Mr. Woolley
was jleep and widespread. Ily clev
er reiteration hu reference at Wash
ington to the Hawaiian ns being like
the Indians was made to rankle In
tha heirts of men who might other
wise havo oted for prohibition. They
relented the lendorshlp of such a ma
llhlnl. After two attempts to right
hluiEclr with Hawaiian voters, Mr.
Woolley wns obliged to withdraw
from any active public participation
In the campaign. Hut It was too
Into. The cause ho represented fell
Into tho same odium. It wns the
rauso of a mnllhlnl, and that, ton,
of n mnllhlnl who had disparaged
them; and they would havo none of
It, as they would not havo him.
Again, the plebiscite wns ordered by
Congress. In other words, Congress
compelled them to vote on prohibi
tion. This wns n new procedure.
What did It mean7 What would it
lead to? It seemed to many that
hero was the first assertion by Coil'
grcss of a right that properly be
longed to the people. It looked like
the first step to the taking over by
Congress of other right of the peo
ple. It looked like tho entering
wedgo of government bv Commission
This they resented. They did not
propose to relinquish any rights or
to seem to do so. They would rather
block the purposes of Congress by do.
featlng tho thing that Congress
wanted to have done. Congress, so
they had been told, whs In favor of
prohibition. Therefore they would
vote against It. And they did; nhd
that, too, probably In consltlcabla
"The prohibition campaign had no
acknowledged, responsible' nnd rum
petent lendo Willi an enthusiasm
that pres.iccd lctory, a committee of
oi or n hundred citizens wns organ
Ized. This committee w.ls subdivid
ed Into n lew committees of a few
mambers enth, and then for weeks
thoio was silence ocr the face of
tha deep. Questions by members oft
tho Committee of Ono Hundred ns
to whnt was being dono elicited scant
response. There was an air of se
crecy that was at least perplexing.
Thero were hints of a whirlwind fin
ish at tha last. Then came on enor
mous meeting. And then came the
election; and the count wns three, to
one against us.
"At this distance, nnd "with the
facts of grave oversight and Ineffi
ciency before us, we are compelled to
admit that thore jvas a lamentablo
lack of comprohenshe grasp of the
situation and nn absencef of any suf
ficient plun. Thero was a disastrous
delay In getting to work. It was a
f ree-as-j ou-go campaign with no cor
relation of forces and no unity of
plan. And the prohibition vote was
small. It was not Rotten out, Thore
weio four thousand, out of thirteen
thousand registered, votors who did
not go to tho polls. Thin wns over
30 per cent. That means that one
voter In every three stayed nt home.
"Tha result of tha plebiscite, more.
over, hits been to postpone Indefinite
ly nn further consideration of Ter.
rltorlal prohibition. The preponder
ance of citizen opinion Is clearly
against any such further agitation.
That question Is settled until there
shall he among us radical difference

reopening of tho question of securing

ment by Congress."
