' Just because automobiles have reached
their high state pj; perfection docs not
mean that 1913 models will not 'show
many new features of construction,"
says II. Dunbar Westlnghouse. ''Oh the'
contrary, motor enthusiasts who' Just
at this time are anxiously awaiting tho
opening of tho thirteenth national auto-,
mobile show In Grand Central Palace
and Madison Square CJarden, will see
many points new and Interesting In
this season's offering;. Practically with
out exception every manufactured has
voniethlng novel to offer, either In the
way of added equipment a feature of
the 1913 product or else some Important
change In construction. calculated to
render easier and smoother action of his'
tars. The fact that, t Is to be a double
ehnw this season ncans. that many more
new Ideas will be revealed to the visitor
at on time than. In previous years.
"Bodies, for Instance, are larger and
roomier thU year- than ever before,
'here Is 0, well defined tendency toward
slight expansion and a general recog
nition of the fact that the average In
dividual needs and. demands mor.o elbow
room and more knee room. More than
ever Is the coupeln evidence. Several
prominent manufacturers who never bo
fore have listed coupe models one of
them Is recognised .as .the greatest of
manufacturers have added .them, for
the first time this year and the .Increase

dicate thaTirTe'reradVaWc,' no" cleverly
have the dly.WUie. lines been covered up.
Left Drive Store Popular.
"The Popularity of left drjve with cen
trally located control levers Is Increasing
remarkably v Prom a practically Insig
nificant beginning' the practice slowly but
surely has grown' to more than noticeable
proportions. Few manufacturers of tho
t.ewer crop have designed their vehicles
to be driven frofA the right sda and the
n anufacturers of oldtr and better known
cars, from the. cheapest to the.- most ex.
ponslve, gradually are adopting left drive
The object of the change from orthodox
construction Is to permit easier entrance
and exit to the driver's seat and to make
even more prominent this admirable fea
ture several manufacturers have placed
their gear shift levers between the two
front scats where they are entirely out
of the -way, while at the same time they
are within easier reach pf the driver's
rand than they could be In any other
positlqn. In appreciation of the fact that
t.ot everybody likes the left hand post
KJon of tho steerlbg wheel several cars
ire now fitted, so that the option of
tither positlqn may bo given.
Control Urnr Drlvrr.
'Another feature which Is brand new
this year Md which ars directly on the
eave wl),h which a car may be controlled
Pee In the adoption of deep cowl dashes
turned under at the inside and mount the
usual array of Ignition switches, car
buretter adjustment, engine starter and
lighting .switches. In this way the control
apparatus Is placed nearer to the driver,
where It is continually under his eye and
It can be reached wlih the minimum of
exertion. Carrying the. ldi;a still further,
the manufacturer of u car that tins ac
quired an international reputation has
located -all such apparatus In a small
switchboard, which uttachos directly to
the steering column bentath the steering
wheel. Of all such switchboards and fh
the (Toshes of very nearly all cars, tho
gasolene tank gtiUgV plays a more Im
portant part than ever before, which In

Ii(loV prilTlTinK a car and substitute f6r
It the comTqrf which Cttmes of sccurlt ,
'tinft fornvof. eriulninerit which, by lhS
wildest strotch of the imagination could
riot be called other than new as nppllcrt,
to Anlorlcan cars )ls In the steadily ln
creasing popularity of wlro wheels", The
use of wlro wlirels which had Us Incep
tion abroad, has spread to American
shores purely by reason of the merit of
tho wheels themselves, for there cannot
be offered tho excuse for their use hero
that obtains abroad, Where 'suitable wood
for Wheels Is scarce. On several makes
of cars, wire wheels will appear for the
fist time as standard equipment without
extra cost and on several others wire
wheels will be optional oqulpmont. These
fere now manufactured so as to be fitted
with demountable rims a step In advance
of European manufacture.
" "in the realm of other equipment which
forms such an important part of this
year's cars It Is doubtful If thero Is any
thing ot greater Importance and greater
value than electrlo lights and electric
engine starters. At lant year's show tne
manufacturers who regularly equipped'
their cars with electric lights and electric
engine starters almost could be counted
on the fingers ot two hands, Hlectrlo
lights were fairly common, though oleoi
trio engine starters were conspicuous bet
cuure of their absence or rather by reason
of their vory Infrequent appearance. Thin
year, however, all that Is changed; there
are very few manufacturers who do not
equip their cars with a complete dynamo
electrlo lighting system nnd It would take
more than ten times two hands In order
to get criough fingers to count the num
ber ot cars which will be equipped with
both electric lights and electric engine
starters. Similarly, the acetylene type of
engine starter has made great strides
and between the two cf them, not over
looking compressed air starters, there will
bo very few cars Indeed which are not
equipped with both electric lights and
"Supplementing (he regular .equtprnejit.
n-aiur, iuii npu ucuu itimpa, several mun-
utacturers have added to their equipment
portable "trouble" lamps which can be
'plugged In" at various places around the
chassis. In this way a light which Is
absolutely safe, even right Inside the gas
oline tank Itself, can be used with secur
ity wherever It Is most needed. Tonneau
lights for the Inside ot cape tops also
are used to a greater extent than they
were last' year and some of the means
which have been adopted to provent the
lamps from being Injured when the top Is
lowered are as Ingenious as they ore
efficacious. Still another manufacturer
has added to his lighting equipment n
swtvoling band searchlight to facilitate
the reading of road signs and as a means
to reveal the landscape at the sides usu-
Silent Itunuluir Knitlitrs.
"Among the mechanical features of
the new cars, also, there are Just as
many new things us thero Tmve been in
years gone by, though they are, perforce,
less conspicuous for the reason, already
outlined, that production methods have
been standardized and changes ore more
In the nature of detail refinements and
a general smoothing down. The strife
for silence still goes merrily forward,
and the enclosure of the valvo mechan
ism, which became noticeable )ast year,
la even more apparent this year. Meth
ods of fastening the valve covers are
better, however, and in nearly every
case they nre more easily removable
than they have been In the past. The
use of spirally cut gears which slide
Into engagement Instead of coming to
gether more abruptly Is Increasing, and
whereas last year their employment In
the timing gear train was their princi
pal feature, this year quite a number ot
manufacturers employ spirally out gears
between the driven and lay shafts In
their transmission mechanisms. Nat
urally, thu gears are made moro quiet.
All Parts Hmoothlitir Down.
'"The four-speed gcarset, whloh last
year for the first time attracted any
amount of attention, this yenr Is fairly
common, for cognizance Is being taken
of the fact that lighter engines with a
greater speed range make for greater
ffflclenoy and lowered upkeep expense.
'i"o return to the timing gear train, there
Is an Increasing tendency to drlvo the
camshafts as well as tho magneto and
water pump shafts by means of silent
chains, a renter efficiency and silence
of operation are the principal reasons
for their use. Needless to Bay, In all this
search for greater efficiency and
smoother running, tho comfort of pas
sengers has not been overlooked. Ten
Inch upholstery now Is the rule rather
than the exception, ns It was at last
year's show, and some manufacturers
even have gone to the length of pro
viding cushions fourteen Inches thick.
One manufacturer regularly equips his
cars wth cushions no less than eighteen
Inches In thickness,
v "Spring jiusdnnsion also bears Im
portant relation to the cbmfort of pas
sengers, to say nothing ot Its effect on
tho life of tho car's mechanism, and n
number or manufacturers have very
nearly completely redesigned their sup
ports . In order" ' to provide greater resll
lency and at the same time reduce tho
rebound and- Jqlt generally Inherent with
mora than ordinarily" flexible springs.
Several prominent manufacturers whose
vehicles laC year wore equipped with
seml'-elllptlo rear springs have "changed
over" to the three-quarter elliptic ' va
riety, and the use of shock absorbers as
regular equipment Is much more common
than ever before."

greenhouses of James J. Hill, in the renr
of his Summit avenue residence", where
the railroad man has been carrying on
for tho last two months an experiment
expected4 to revolutionize agriculture In
the northwest, six men, representing com-
merclal and financial Minneapolis, .wore
guided today to witness astonishing re
sults In wheat, oats and barley culture,
achieved by new chemical soil analysis
and Its practical application.
Phosphorus has been found to be tho
great essential plant food lacking In the
soli of the northwest. Mr. Hill has found
the way, he told the Minneapolis men, to
Increase soil fertility.
"I believe," Mr. Hilt said, "that we
.have found .what to do,, and we are go
ing to do It. Wo can by the application
of these mpthods Increase the production
of grain in the northwestern states to
twice tho quantity given In the figures of
tho Department of Agriculture 'for 191J.
and this in true also of North Dakota."

"The chief error assigned In this case
a that tho defendants 'were tried on
theory of a continuing conspiracy. As
far as we -have been nblo to learn there
Is no decision which definitely considers
this point." It la a matter ot record lo

tho defendants should have been tried for

it Is the ordinary and customary practice
to admit tho defendants to ball."
