For this act Church was tried before

FROM TRIP EAST
R. C. H. Corporation's Local
Manager Says Factory Is
in Fine Shape
LEON J. PINKSON
A. E. Morrison, manager of the R. C.
H. company, the coast factory branch
of the R. c. H. corporation, returned
yesterday after an absence of three
weeks, during which time he visited
the factory in Detroit, spent a little
visit with the branches in Chicago.
Minneapolis and Cincinnati and on the
way back to the coast visited his rep
resentatives in the northwest terri
tory. Morrisoft is much pleased as a
result of his trfp. He found the fac
tory in splendid shape to turn out a
record number of cars this season and
in his visits to the branches and his
agencies he learned of bright pros
pects for continued activity in the R.
C. H. line.
"Rumors that drifted to the coast
that the R. C. H. corporation was In
financial distress were unwarranted,"
said Morrison yesterday in discussing
his visit to the factory. "The com
pany's business , had developed so rap
idly that its working capital was not
large enough to permit an adequate
output of cars and this gave rise to
the reports that we were in financial
difficulty. Additional capital, how
ever, was quickly secured and the
factory today is on as strong a basis
as any of the leading plants in the
country. The R. C. H. corporation has
the distinction of being the only fac
tory in the country that in the first
year of its existence built as many as
6.000 cars. At the present time there
are bonaflde orders at the Detroit head
quarters for 15.000 of the 1913 models.
The factory facilities are now being
increased and we look for no trouble
in turning out a sufficient number of
cars to meet this demand.
"In my visits to the branches in
Cincinnati, Chicago and Minneapolis I
found eve/rything looking favorable
for a good years business, although
snow had already started to fall in
Mnnnesota and not much more business
was anticipated until the spring. In
the northwest I was most pleased with
conditions and T look for a big in
crease in the volume of business In
Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Mon

has been overhauled and rebuilt it is as strong, safe and powerful
as a new car of the same model.
The materials and workmanship are far better than it would

a business proposition, the purchase of a Rebuilt Locomobile, guar

value, the maximum efficiency and service and unexcelled satisfac
