The fact that the local business houses are fast awakening to the su periority of "Power Wagons" over their slower and weaker horse equip ment, was strongly evidenced this past week by the purchase of a one ton "Grabowsky" Trucks by the Ho nolulu Iron Works. This truck- is equipped with a forly-flve horse-power motor and is capable of hauling any load up to two tons, at a speed of from four to twenty miles per hour at an averago cost of fifty cents per day, exclusive of driver's wage. Mrs. Griggs Holt arrived in Hono lulu by the Korea yesterday and brought along her Hupmobile coupe. This car is the fir.-t ever seen on Ho nolulu's streets and is a dainty, fom iiinio affair.

The car Is electrically lighted throughout, and a glass vase for flowers on the side just over the steering-wheel gives It a particular ly feminine touch.

The drop In the price of fires which was announced by tiie Dia mond Rubber Company on the first of December and a further drop on the 9th of January, reducing the for mer prices of tires nnd tubes 25 per cent, has been followed by all the largo competing rubber companies. This reduction in tires has been much welcomed by automobile en thusiasts as tiie tire quos'ion is one of the most serious effecting tho to tal of automobile bills. - The von Hamm-Young Company, who have been the leading dealers in Diamond and Goodrich tiros for years have recently taken up the Fisk tire, especially' the ' typo used on the de mountable rims. A large shipment of these Flak demountable rims has been locelvod by The vou Humm Young Vnipnny; as well as a com plete stock of all sizes of Fisk tires. Already -a number of cars have been equipped willi sain an dlhey are proving very satit I'iic'ory indeed. Another tire which has como Into great favor on the mainland is the Michelin. The von Hamm-Young Company expect a shipment of these tires in shortly.' During the week several fine cars have gone out from The von Hamm Young Company's salesrooms. Among these Is one of the famous seven-passenger 2."-3." Renault cars, known all over the world for its excellence of workmanship and fine mechanism, the factory using the very finest steel and materials only for this wonderful car. Tilts line Renault was pur chased! during the WcA by Mr. C. H. ft'chii vh' intends to put same into 'he rent business. This Is an extra ordinary opportunity for Honolulu 'lulohiobile enthusiasts to get a ride In this fam.m.-i French car, which has tho leputalion'or being I lip finest Ku fopeai) fcrtymH today.; f. Other cars deli veil by Tho von TTnmm-Yoriig Company during tiie week Include a beautiful five-passenger Bnick touring car to Mr, Kric Knudson of Kauai, who will enjoy the use of his new car while he Is in town for the legislative session. , Mr. W. K. Drown took delivery of one of the well known five-passenger Model x Stevcns-Duryea touring cars which type of car for years has been a great favorite in Honolulu. Mr. Krowu is very much pleaned with his new car and is thoroughly satisfied that he has received g md value for his money. He ought to know for this is the third Stevens-Duryea which he has owned during the past two or three years. The Overland tho very popular medium priced car has again found many admiring purchasers during the week. One of these cars, a pretty I'oiir-pas.snnger denii-tonneau, was shipped by The von Hamm-Young Company to Maul on the Claudine to Dr. Osmors. Another Overland, a fine five-pas seiigor car villi foredoor body, arriv ed during the week for Captain Or ton. This car has been specially ad mired as it is a very pretty typo of ear for its price. The von Hamm Young Company will receive another car, exactly a duplicate of same by the next Sierra. The arrival of this car (ls being eagerly looked forward to by several Interested parties. now migrating to California to escaiiei the sleet nnd snow of the north Hint east and to tour the state in their cars. The F. F. Goodrich company, build ers of Hie Goodrich tiros, is doing some splendid work putting up signs in the east telling the motorists In what direction they aro going. The company uses a White gas truck for this purpose. At the same time the crew Is gathering information on t he conditions of the roads on which the signs are being placed. Another car due on the Sierra is a splendid six-cylinder Peerless touring car with tho torpedo body, one of the hamhomest cure built in the United Slates today. This car was ordered by Mr. Aug. Dreier ami should have arrived sooner but for delays en route, caused by snowstorms and blockades. Among the arrlva's on the Korea yesterday was Mr. A. A. Young of The von Hamm-Young Company. Mr. Young has been on the mainland for the last two months, during which tine he has toured Southern California. The principle that tho driver of a slow moving vehicle has no legal right to obstruct the highway to the disadvantage of a more rapidly mov ing one has been upheld by a jury at Newtcn, N. ,T. B. F. Snyder, a mu ltilist, charged .Tames Ross, a team ster, with failing to permit him to pass on a road, and sued to recover $1, the amount or two fines that coul 1 bo Imposed under the law. He won. The Howard automobile company has been advised that two of the monster liuick model 100 ears, which were the sensation of speed events last year, would be entered in the 5dO-mile international sweepstakes race at the Indianapolis speedway next May. The entries are to be sent from New York within the next week or ten days. "Wild Cob"' lturman nnd Artlhur Chevrelol will be nominated to drive and after that they will go abroad to take part in the French grand prize race over the Salt he circuit. Louis Chevrolet, who suffered sever injur ies in the 1010 Vanderbilt cup race, has recovcre.i. The famous Franco Swiss driver may return to the mot ir lacing sport, if not in the capacity of a pilot at least as mechanical su perintendent of the Hulck racing team's cars. The Ilnlck team and all Its equip ment is located in New York this winer in a shop In the Iironx and is occupying itself in reassembling and timing up the Huick model 100 cars that were in the grand prize race at Savannah and also building some new ones of the same model for the 1311 campaign. Uurman was the first driver to fin lsh 1 ho international race in an American car, and when his Ruick crossed the line at the end of that 413 mile grind the Incident marked a new epoch In the racing of Ameri can motor cars. H. M. Owens, president of the San Francisco motor club, sent the fol lowing telegram to President Taft: "Forty thousand automobile owners t if California want to show the south east nnd north the beauties of Cali- lornla. We must have the fair to do t." Many nntonmhllists residing In var ious pails of the United States are Dr. F. C. T,ee, u Speedwell owner of Dnlnth, Minn, writes of a rather amuFlng version of how he was pull ed into several friendly speed con testa. Here is what he says: "I very seldom race or drive my car nion than 2."i miles an hour. Went racing four or five times with Smart Alecks that were blowing around the town J tlay in and day out as to what, their; cars would do, I managed to catch them on the hills with somebody elso In my car and on the level with somebody elso in their car, and with good boosters in my car where the circumstances would be well known. It has never taken more than 3fW yards to clean them up. Until now the drivers say there is not a car in 'lie town tha can beat the Speedwell up. I have got this reputation for the car willi only five contests three on the hills and two on the level with out abuse to my car. .1 am boosting all I can and am only sorry 1 can not do more." "Nearly two years have elapsed since I purchased my E-M-F, 30 from you." writes C. F. Balaam, a promi nent real estate man of Exeter, to Chester N. Weaver, general manager of the Studebaker Brothers Company, "and my speedometer now registers nearly 8,000 miles. During that time I have Rotten an averago of 18 miles to the gallon of gasoline and I carry from two to six passengers constant ly. My repairs have included tw each inside and outside cones and one tire, but this was not replaced until '.t had scored n mileage of 5,000." Of these 10 winners, five had chosen to equip their contest cars willi-Goodrich tiies, among them be ing the winner of the first prize. The Marmon automobile agency at San Francisco has just received a carload of three Marmons, all of which have been sold. One of them was delivered to Captain William -Vlatson. It was a 32-horsepower, five passenger touring car. There have lately been two exceed ingly satisfactory economy tests of what a properly equipped automobile can do. The first was the trip of A. 1 Westgard's party, of the Touring Club of America, from New York City to San Francisco. Taking a southern course, Westgard mapped out a transcontinental tourists' route of 4 tioo miles. The economy of trans portation demonstrated the feasibil ity of such a journey for pleasure. Tho repairs and replacements for the machine, a Premier, were practically nothing. More than that, the orifetiml Goodrich tire equipment carried the heavy load of 4,400 pounds straight j through from New York to San Fran cisco. And two of the tires still had Now York air in them at the end' of the trip. This tire test was particularly not able, for it, showed how much reli ance can be placed hi this most Im portant accessory. The second economy demonstration Is the result of the Wlnlon upkeep contest, which was prompted by the award of 10 prizes amount lug to $2. 500 to 1 1 1 o chauffeurs of Winton pri vately owned cars, for the best up keep records made In a year. The 10 owners totaled 16.",fl01.9 miles on a total upkeep (repair) ex pense of $G.!i(!, so that the average upkeep expense per 1000 miles was kept down to a trifle below 43 ceuta. That there is no slump 111 the auto mobile industry i.s tmlletited by tile ac tivity tu the factories of the lending i . oinpHrilus. Miimilaeturers keep pretty elo.-e truck of conditions. They tire not prone to keep up full speed unless Iuim iness warrants it; yet !-oiue companies ;trc increasing their forces us rapidly as possible. Th h t'haliuers Motor I'uinpiiny, for instance, reports that it Is working its full force, and overtime in some de partments. Tills company has been puttiiiK on men at tiie rule of i'i to 'M a day for the past three weelts, follow ing the usual slack. An average of .'0I1 men are working on the night !.i'i this time. "We are producing an avern.:e of forty cars n day," says I lush ('linl iners, "mid we are worrying about keeping our production up to the de mand. Since our 11(11 models appear ed we have done more business than in the same period of the 1!H0 season. The outlook for spring looks very bright to us. We did not originally plan to build many more cars thin year than last, as It has never been our policy to see how many cars we could build. Hence our dealers expect tlio usual shortage of Chalmers cars about May. At present we art; geitlng up to top speed In the factory so that those who have ordered for early spring de livery won't be disappointed." ii' I spectacle of two grown men crawling' on hands and knees , in the streets i AllSIUUfl IllUlldO Tl lilt tOTMCT IUI VlfV men's sanity were reassured and laughed when told that the twain" ''" were merely doing penance becaus they refused to believe that a CadiN "' lac Thirty touring car could climb;. Peoria's own Kickapoo hill. Peoria's proud of that Kickapoo, hill. Alwuys and ever it has been th ''' bane of motorists.. It couldn't b. ' climbed on "high." ' The two citizens rash enough toj believe that a Cadillac couldn't climb Kickapoo on high speed said If it did ' they'd get down on their , hands and knees end meander around the four' sides of the (Mint house square at high noun. r ! Along with newspaper men and others they went out to see the' Cadillac make the attempt; saw i . . go the length of the hills, make tht sharp turn and reach the top, all , high sliced gear. f ' So a few days later they paid th penalty they themselves had named; 1 and down in Peoria they're still tal. ' lug about the Cadillac's climb and' tho payment of the wager. ; Tiie Chalmers Motor Company re cently Invaded Australia. Two other American curs were established there when Hoy W. Satiford Introduced the Chalmers In Sydney. That was two months ago. Thirty-eight Chalmers cars haA' already been sold In .Sydney, and Mr. Sanford cabled last week for ten more. In a recent letter lie says: "I have established a branch In .Mel bourne and the car was tin Instant lilt. Those who have ridden In the Chal mers say It is belter as tn quality and llnlsli than any of the European cars which can hope to compete with It on a price basis. All are agreed It Is the best American car shown In Australia." Whut kind of people are buying automobiles, and how do they, aa in-' divlduals, stand tn their respective " communities? Charles T. Jeffery, head of the .' Thomas B. Jeffrey Company, baa an swered this question, at least as far as Humbler sales are concerned, by '" taking a sales census among Rambler dealers for a limited period during 1910. , . Four hundred sales, made during ' this period, were reported aa soon M. cotiRuinmnted, and as they came from ' widely sepe uted section! of the coun- try, the lUay be said to have beee1 taken at "I'ldom from those twenty-1 live hundn 1 sales which were made to Humbler buyers in 1910. Practica'iy every sectloa of the Union Is represented. The list of those representing different occupa, tions who purchased the Rambler dur ing that limited period Includes, bank-" ers, 43; doctors, 24; merchants, S7; real estate dealers, 30; lawyers, 8; farmers, 76; architects, 3; manufac Hirers, 26; contractors, 11; engineers, ' 4; retired capitalists and mlscellan (ou, R8. . Among the merchants there are mea r in many business' pursuits, and those clnssed under farmers Include also ranchmen and fruit growers.
