AMONG AUTOMOBILISTS OF THE WORLD
VON HAMM-YQJUNG COMPANY HAS
ElGiNAlfei HONOR ROLL
1 4 A - . -1 , "x l U .
The von IIomm-Yonnj Co.' still re
tains Its .characteristic lite, and tho
volutnCvOf business seems about as
usual, as may be seen by the Honor
lloll, which c6nslstt of, eight names
this week. There Is a treat cntl on
tho von Hnmm-Young Co. lately for
Cadillacs; they are getting more pop
ular all tho time, Is evidenced by the
fact that two. shipments of four cars
each are on tho road from, the factory,
samo having been shipped the end of
last month. All tho cars In these
two shipments are all sold to be de
livered Immediately on their arrival,
which Is expected on the Lurllne next
Weilnesday.iAnother shipment of four
cars ,was ordered this week to meet
the Immense 'demand which the Ca
dillacs call for.
The true, value of a car Is appre
ciated when It Is pressed Into ser
vice at a function such as tho coro
nation bait, which wan held at the
Mouna Hotel; on Thursday evening.
There was a very large arruy-of ma
chines around the hotel during the
evening which were used to enrry
the merry-makers to and from 'the
ball, and amongst there cars tho
Cadillacs and I'ackards wore the most
predominant makes. This affair was
one of the. largest and most-success;
ful affairs of the season and 'was made
most enjoyable and comfortable to
those who were fortunate enough to
to able to -attend In an automobile.
Motor cars are so Important at a
function ot this kind and the I'ack
ards and Cadillacs are so luxuriously
fitted and well protected from dust,
dirt and oil that the beautiful and
costly gowns worn by the ladles are
not nearly so liable to be. ruined when
using these' automobiles.
Island Read ImproTfiig. .
The belt road nround tho Island Is
Improving every day and the trip Is
fust becoming more and more popu
lar. The holes rare belug filled .up
and the poor stretches are' being
macadamized, and the road depart
ment surely needs honorable mention
when tho bell road Is .spoken of. Tho
grades nre vory steep In places but
with a high-powered car such ns the
PopA-Hartford, which takes all tho
hills on the high gear so easily, It. In
a' most enjoyable trip.
The Honor noil this week at the
von Hamm-Young Company bears
eight, names, two of which request
that their' names be 'withheld from,
publication. These parties huvo both
placed orders for new Cadillacs to
bo delivered out of the third arriving
shipment ,The rest of tho names nro
as follows: Mr. W. E. Miles, Dr.
Mlnette Uurnham, Mr. Homer Hayes',
Mr. George Qlbb, Mr. 0. Hansen, Mr.
(Jch Popular Ilulck.
Mr. W. K. Miles purchnsed one of
the. popular little Ilulck White
Streaks, which ho Is to use. for both
pleasure and business. Mr. Miles has
been undecided for many' months on
the selection of nn automobile, and af
ter trying most ot them out decided
that for his' use a little Ilnlck was
tho most adaptable of all makes.
Dr. Mlnette Uurnham, who, has been
driving u Maxwell for the past two
years, found on her return from the
Coast that her rapidly Increasing
prnctice would' compel ber to-'have
a larger, more reliable' and speedier
car. With this end In view Dr. Burn
hum purchnsed from tho von Hamm
Young .Company one of the latest
types of Overland runabouts. This
machine has no rumblq seat but In
stead has tho gas tank" and tho box
for Btirglcal instruments In the rear
of tho front scats, and Is one ot tho
snappiest looking, and most service
able runabouts In sorvica today.
Dr. Homer Hayes, of Molokal, by
a most .singular instance, has dupli
cated Dr. Uurnham's performance by
substituting on Ovorlund for the
Maxwell car which he has '-been
using. The grades and rough roads
on Molokal cnll for a higher-powered
car than the Maxwell and ns. Mr. Geo.
Cooke has had such good success with
his Overland on Molokal, Dr. Hayes
decided that ho would purcl'asu an
Packard for (leorge (Jllili.
Mr. (leorge Olbb, of Olowalu, Maul,
purchased one of tho handsomest
cars In Honolulu. This Is u 1911
I'ackard IS touring enr of tho fore
door typo. Tho demand for tho I'ack
ards Is Just ns great as over and Mr.
(Hub Is well deserving of a high com
pliment on his solcctlon,
Mr. Frederick Dowso purchased n
sinall'tourlng car for his family Ufo
Mr. 0. Hansen placed nn order for
a Cadillac fore-door touring car to
bo delivered out pf tho next arriv
ing shipment, which is expected on
tho Lurllne. The Cadillac cur is tho
most sultuble car for the Island of
Kauai ns It is n wonderful hill
climber and n very Binooth riding,
Mr. John A. Hogg, the Kaunl rep
resentative of- tho vonHnmm-Young
Company, spent the past week in Ho
nolulu, conferring on future auto
mobile business, returning to Kauai
on the Hall on Thursday.
An announcement which has caus
ed a' great d,eal of pleasure Is the
fact that n new shipment of Quick
White Streaks and touring cars left
the big factory at Flint, Michigan,
Juno 9th, destined fur Honolulu,,
which the von Hamm-Young Company
has anticipated for some time. These
cars are expected very shortly and
will be ready for delivery ubout tho
tenth of July. Some of these cars
are already sold, although the ship
ment hus been delnpcd for a few
months on account of the big sales
which the llulcks have had in tho
Knst The White Streak runabout
has an Increased horsepower of ap
proximately 3-1-4 horsepower ,nnd 1ms
a very finely designed threo-specd
selective type transmission, which Is
a great improvement over tho pre
vious two-speed car. Therd , is big
call in Honolulu for little Ilulck run
abouts, ns nil of those which uro now
In lisu have done such good work and
are so extremely economical In their
consumptlon'ofgaollne and oil, and
the repairs? nro so nominal.
New Ilulck! Fine Car.
Tho big Ilulck has n great many
refinements over tho previous year's
car, having u much handsomer body,
strnlghtcr lines and much better
finish than Of previous years, Thu
foru-door Is nnother improvement
which the Ilulck has added to all of
Its models, which Is now considered
by the automobile public ns a neces
sity rather than a luxury. Fore-dour
curs aro becoming more and more
popular nil the time and a person once
driving one for any length of time
whatever will continue thu use of tho
fore-door model of nny mako which
ho may select.
Tho von Hamm-Young Company nro
looking forward to tho arrival of
Mr. IV M. I'ond's 3-ton Packard truck
on the Lurllne. Mr. Pond will put
this car Into active use the moment
It arrives, and he Is anxiously await
ing the same to bo used In his gov
ernment contract, work ut Lellehuu.
Mr. W. J. West ot tho von Hamm
Young Company returned from a very
successful business trip to Kauai on
Sunday morning. Mr. West reports,
business very good on Kauai nt pres
ent and prospects for tho season of
1812 ot tho best

On Same Day at Dif
Simultaneously on1 Juno 3, Cadillac
cars again sprang into prominence In
California by, making remarkable re
ductions In time In two of the road
records which have, stood for n long
Ono Cadillac started from Sun
Francisco, tho other from Los Ange
les at midnight Jurto 3 the former
In an-effort to lower tho tlmo from
tho (lolden Gate City to Delmonta
and Return, tho other on tho path
finding trip for the I)s Angeles

tho 2C2 miles of Its run from 'Frisco
to Dclmonto and back nt the nvorngo
Bpeed of JO miles por hour. Tho dis
tance was covered In C hours and 30
minutes, this being ono hour and four
minutes better than the record. This
record, according to San Francisco
motoring authorities, Is tho most
sought nflcr In thu northern part of
California, and the Cadillac's per
formance created n real sensation.
The other Cadillac traversed the
road between Los Angeles and San
Diego 1S3 miles In 4 hours and 10
'nlmHes averaging 37 3-4 miles ier
hour and setting a record six minutes
faster than tho best previous.
This Is considered remarkable tlmo
nn the coast, in viow of thu fact, dur
ing tho last two yours no fewer than
20 cars havo made attempts to better
tho record and have failed.
The taking of these two records
place the Cadillac within one of be
ing tho champion toad car on tho
southern California roads, The only
record It docs not now hold is that
from Los Angeles to San Diego and
, Dining the winter a Cadillac mado
tho round trip from Los Angeles to
'Frisco in 39 hours, -8 minutes .of'
elapsed,' tlmo whlch.was considerably
better than nny previous time., Soon
after .this, another Cadillac made .tho
round trip of 974 miles In 37 hiHiru,

OR 1912 The Locomobile will set a new standard of Luxury in motor
Our success in the past resulted from our continued efforts to make the
Locomobile the best built car in America.
Having attained this mechanical superiority, our present aim is to make
the Locomobile the most, luxurious American Car Quiet, Comfortable, Perfect in
The Six Cylinder Locomobile, by virtue of its excellent performances in 1911, has
established a new standard in Six Cylinder construction. Realizing the demand on
the part of the present day motorist for increased comfort in automobiling, we have
made careful study and investigation for the -purpose of. making this Car the last
word in Luxury.
The improvements that we have made in this direction produce Ease and Comfort
Hitherto unknown in motoring. As an instance, the rear seat cushions and high
backs in our Six Cylinder Touring Car are each provided with upholstering ten
inches deep as soft and restful as the easiest library chair. Passengers are seated
low in the car, which produces a feeling of security.
Our Five Passenger Six Cylinder Torpedo is the most perfect combination of
Luxury and Style yet offered in this popular type of body. The passengers are
carried on the rear seat, which has upholstering len inches thick, cushion and back.
We also make a Four Passenger Torpedo upholstered in the same' luxurious manner.
The combination of advantages offered only in the Locomobile, Shaft Drive Six
makes it -
A Perfect Machine a Perfect Vehicle, . i
The Six Cylinder Type in its highest development. '.
The "30" Locomobile, Four Cylinders. This reliable, and convenient five passenger shaft drive
car will be marketed for 1912 without change, excepting increased attention to details of finish and
equipment. Price $3500.
All 1912 Locomobile-Models are equipped with High Tension Ignition, Demountable Rims,
and Top. The customer is given his choice of color. More complete information on application.

Moderate WVIulit The Locomobllo Sir, with possibly ono
exception, Is the llRhtest seven-passenger, six-cylinder car. Wo
hnro nttalned this progress and refinement by seven years'
study and development of tho finest alloy steels. Ono bralto
horsepower Is provided for every fifty-seven pounds of weight. .
Fuel Kcononiy The Locomobile Six has frequently been
driven twelve miles on a gallon ot fuel. This Is well In advance
of ordinary six-cylinder performance. A customer writes that
ho drove his I.ommnhlle Six over tho mountains from I,os
Angeles to Santa Ilurbnrn with seven passengers, averaging
eleven miles to u gallon ot fuel. Another customer writes that
ho drovo his Six Torpedo over fourteen mfles on a gallon of
fnel. Such economy Is due to, our special carburetor design,
snd to moderate weight.
Tire Kcononiy Ordinarily n pnuerful slv Unburden through
tiro expense Involved, The Locomobile Six, however. Is eco
nomical In tire wear. "The Speedometer diiVH four thouiiiiiil
miles.' Tim original tires urn Mill on the car nnil from npprar
aiices you would not thinly they lind Ih-cii driven 1001) mllcV'
The foregoing roport Is on ono ot tho first Sixes delivered.
Locomobile tiro economy Is due to moderate) wolght and scien
tific balance of weight; nlso to tho, free action of the differen
tial when turning a corner, thus preventing any grludlng'nctlnn
on the rubber, Tho Locomobile differential nevor binds under
any conditions ot road operation.
Strength of Construction llronzo Instead of.nlumlnum Is
used for tho motor base and gear box. It Is three times ns
Btrong as tho nlumtitum ordinarily used for tho purposo on
other cars. The axles and steering gear are very strong and
safe. Tho car throughout Is built from carefully designed
parts made In the Locomobile factory from material specially
selected for each part. Tho Locomobile has always been known
for Its safety1 and strength.
Hiding Quulltles The Locopioblla Slxslias wonderful riding
qualities perfect comfort nnd MendliieKi. No swerving from
sldo to side when traveling at speed, Thosuperb riding quali
ties ot our Six are due largely to tho fact that pnwor doos not
pass through the springs. Thus they aro freo to act. Hear
bprlngs cannot give maximum comfort when they net as dis
tance rods, The threo-quarlcr elliptic rear springs aro shackled
at both ends so that they have full pluy. All springs are made
ot the finest spring steel.
