Charles Shepard, an extort mechanic
formerly In the employ of the von

purchased one of these wonderfu' cars
which he intends to put on the Hono
lulu Auto Stand, on the corner of!
Alakea and Hotel streets.
Mr. Shepard has been in the em

several years aud is well known as a
careful and competent chauffeur. This
fact, together with the pre-eminent
position of the Cadillac should make
Mr. Shepard's car a very popular one.
The 1913 Cadillac cars are selling
like wild-fire all over the mainland.
Der.lers simply cannot get enough
cars to keep up with the demand. The
world-wide confidence in the Cadillac
amounts to a deep-rooted conviction.
You will find Cadillac dealers all over
the country booking orders and mak
ing deliveries in the most "difficult"
motor car months of the year. Even
in Honolulu at the present time with,
the sugar tariff question causing a
great deal of concern, the Cadillac
cars . are, being delivered as fast as
they can be secured by the local
agents. Everywhere is the same in
telligent, inflexible and implicit con

Texans Hunt Quail in Cadillac; Car.
Quail hufaiug by motor car is the
latest novelty for sportsmen; and,
juditiR from the enthusiastic reports
from Texas, this method of getting a
full bag not only adds much to the
comfort and pleasure of the sport, but
aI?o has it's practical values.
Recently Roy Munger, of Dallas,
Texas, accompanied by friends, made
a hunting trip 1o West Texas, using
his Cadillac touring car not only to
get to the hunting grounds, but actu
ally employing the car in the field.
Mr. Munger and his party made the
trip in his car overland to Big
Springr, and drove thence about 60
miles north.
"Automobile hunting is the great
est sport in the world." Mr. Munger
said on his return to Dallas. "We
shot from the ear nearly all the time
and the Cadillac took me nearly apy
place I wanted to go. In fact some
of the places we pulled through would
have been impassable for a horse and
The Munger party bagged . nearly
as much game as the law allows.
Hlue quail were killed in large num
bers and the duck hunting near Gail,
Texas, where the nights were spent,
was declared all a hunter could wish
for. i
The most important element which
Can Le considered under equipment is
the matter of lights. Lights must be
pr.rilive. of long range, and easy of
control. Th? locomobile is equipped
with the most perfect electric lighting
dynamo system yet devised for an
automobile. Every detail is worked
out with the same care that would
be given to dynamos of a central sta
tion. All lights are equipped for elec
tricity and are exclusively designed
for Ihe Locomobile. They are entire
ly new in pattern, the large bulky
lamp being done away with. Heavy,
special armored cables carry the cur
rent from chassis connector to the
lamps. These connectors are of the
bayonet locking type.
The equipment includes motor-driven
air compressors for inflating tires,
drop forged tire carriers on the rear,
bolted to steel frame; electric start
er, silk mohair top of ne.w design,
glass front which s made integral
with the curved dash, quick detach
able, demountable rims and a com
plete tool' kit.
The closed cars are fitted with ap
pointments as exclusive in design and
detail as the outside Sterling Silver
finish, including toilet cases, speaking
tubes, window screens, dome and cor
ner llgnts.
An attack of influenza Is often fol

failed. For sale by all dealers. Ben

arose as to w!i"i.r the a'ttoaiohi. -!

I poii in est ij-nt ieti of the differeui
types of automobiles it was learned
that among those which had consider
ed this an important question in ad
vance of decisions of city officials was
the new Hudson "37." the electric wir
ing of which is protected against the
possibility of crossed wires thrcush
eut by passing through conduits con
structed of asbestos, metal and wood,
so that wherever wires cross or pass
through sfietions of the car there i.s
sure protection. Wires from the dash
board to Ihe batteries are asbestos en
closed; wires going under the frame
are enclosed in wood and a heavy
metal conduit houses the wiring over
the motor while extra heavy insulation
protects the car from all other wires.
In view of the fact that there are
miles of wiring In an automobile, this
is considered an important question in
automobile circles.
Mr. Howes, the Hudson dealer, in
an interview today considered the pro
tection of the car by electric wire con
duits of this kind were very essential.
He said:
"On the New Hudson "37" and the
"f4" .Hudson a six-cylinder car you
will find no place where exposed wir
ing exists. - Conduits are used through
out, although as far as I know, we
have not found 'hat there have been
any city regulations that wouid pre
vent equipping a tar without these con
duits. "The Hudsons being built under the
direction of Howard E. Coffin, the man
who is1 ncknowledged America's fore
most rtotor car designer, there is noth
ing that has hot been figured out in ad
vance, the result being that this is
merely one c f the points that Mr. Cof

"It would be interesting to know jast
Lwhat city or county regulations therj
arc governing electric wiring on auto
mobiles. The matter may not have
been given consideration, although in
the- eve of 4.hin boing considered an
absolute, necessity, action will probably
be taken." . . :
For a country which is aping west
ern methods and prfdes itself on its
progressive spirit, Japan is not yet
much of an automobile center. There
are only about 300 cars in the whole
cf Japan, but most of these come
from the United States, showing that
here at least is one foreign country
that the Americans have not been
slow to invade. Because of poor roads
and high prices charged for cars the
present outlook for a better Japanese
trade is not brisk. But if Japan pro
ceeds along the lines of building good
I roads, which will be the natural out
come of the consistent imitation of the
methods of other countries, the
market should improve.
A writer in a French naper discuss
ing the fact that only about 6 per
cent of the cars used in Japan are of
French manufacture, says that the
French ought to take a more active
part in the struggle for Japanese
trade. What this writer says, as trans

"The 300 automobiles in use in
Japan may seem a very small number
for a country whose area is nearly
four-fifths that of France and whose
inhabitants pride themselves more and
more on competing witn European na
tions, and "even surpassing them, in
the paths of industrial progress. There
are two reasons tor this inferiority ;
in the first place, it is proper to note
that the price of automobiles in Japan
is too high for the use of these ve
hicles to spread rapidly: in the sec
ond place, the condition of the roads
in most of the provinces leaves much
to be desired.

all parts of the empire.
"For the reasons just indicated the
low priced cars seem to be the most
sought cf whatever typeIn the first
rank among the producing countries
is the United States. Thus, of" 100
automobiles imported by Japan dur
ing the year 1911, 67 came from the
United States. Next came Germany
and Kngland, the first with 14 cars,
the second with 13. The remaining
cars were furnished by France.
"It is evident that our country,
where mechanical locomotion has
reached a stage of development well
known to all. is not taking in this
economical competition a place
worthy of it. It is to be hoped that
our builders will seek to assure a
more considerable output of their
products for this market."
