HARD RUN ON HIGH GEAR
White Mountain Trip Shows
New Marmon at Its Best.
One of the m6et remarkable high
.?ear test? ever attempted has just
been successfully completed by a new
1915 Marmon 41, six-cylinder car,
.?riven by Frank E. Wing, the New
Kngland distributor of Marmon cars,
.ho last week made a 366-mile trip
fiom Boston to Bretton Wood?, in the
White Mountains, and return in 18
honra and 65 minutes, or at an average
.ate of speed of 33 miles an hour after ?
deducting timo for ?tops.
The striking fratilre was not so
much the speed maintained as the fact j
that the speed lever had been sealed
and locked on high gear by a justice |
of the peace. The car'? passenger?? ?
(\ D. Washburn, W. R. Stanton and J. ;
T. Sullivan?have aigned affidavits,
that the feat was actually accora
The start was made from Boston I
last Wednesday and the route was by1
way o( Newburyport, Portsmouth..
Rochester, Ossipee Valley and the |
?Vonways to Intervale. Crawford Notch
was the real teat. Here there is a
steady grade, ending with the famous
Tug-of-War Hill, about half a mile in
length, with sharp pitches and water
breaks. Thas part of the road is also
very narrow. One of the passengers
in describing this part of the run
"For a stretch of about 100 feet
there is a bit of level. Mr. Wing
opened the throttle and the car shot
rhead and the struggle was on. up
and up the car went, the exhaust rat?
tling out a warning. Around a curve,
over a short bridge, around another
ledge of rock, past three cars stalle
on the road, the Marmon climbed.
"Half the distance was covered wtth
cut faltering, but the hardest part was
ahead. Over another little bridge the
car flew and again raced upward. A
taharp curve and right ahead was the :
last grade. Easing the machine a frac-1
tion of a second. Mr. Wing gave full ?
power, and over the top it climbed, and ,
the purpose of the trip was achieved.
MODERN CAR L0NGL1VED
Apperson Nearly Perfect After
Harry V. Roome. an Apperson owner
living ii. Lo.-? Angeles, pays tribute to
the mechanical efficiency of the modern
motor car. He has driven his machine
mora than 46.030 miles, and during that |
r-eriod received splendid service. The ;
r.djustme.ns made during that time |
were verv few and of minor importance ;
Being of a mechanical turn of mind ;
he ?leckied a ?sh<??t time-?ago .to- take*!
his cat to pieces and ascertain for him-1
si If the amount of wear on the various i
parts and the concition of the hear?
ings, brake lining, steering gear and
His investigation proved a surprise. |
The car was almost as good as new..
He found that the i ear axle bearings
?vere in perfect order, and thisi was also
trae of the steering gear. The. clutch, ,
he says, was not touched during the ?
f-rst 31,300 miles of travel, and then
the only thing necessary to be done
was to reline a bearing.
BRITISH MOTOR CAR
Have Bought AH Mag?
netos from Germany,
Now Closed to Them.
A POOR REMEDY
Suspension Would Hold Only
During Period of War, Which
May End Very Quickly.
Reports from Great Britain ahow that
the motor trad? haa been rather hard
hit by the war, and that production has
been greatly curtailed in anticipation
of a much lighter demand for car.)
for some time to come, especially of
the high priced types so ?*. mmon to
the British Industry.
A curious situation has also arisen
with regard to the magneto businets,
which haa practically all been con?
trolled by German compani?*?*. with
Bosch, of Stuttgart, the big leader in
This concern practically swept all
its rivals out of the market more than
a year ago, at i made the manufacture
of magnetos lor motor car usos utter?
ly uninviting to British electrical
Although the war not merely cuts
out the source of magneto supply, but
makes it illegal for the British branch
to secure any more from Stuttgart,
the Britiah motor car manufacturer is
not really in danger of being unable
to aecure supplies, because tho
recent acquisition of the business
and plant of the Rushmore people of
Detroit by the Bosch company?of
course, through the medium of a legal?
ly constituted American company?
will ?nable a plentiful supply for the
British market to be maintained.
But the British motor manufacturer
is naturally disposed at this juncture
to look around for an acceptable Brit?
ish made magneto to take the place of
the Bosch. There la reason to believe
that there is a certainty of this de?
mand being satisfied, but the motoring
public haa a profound and well mer?
ited confidence in the Bosch design
and form of construction, and the
motor car manufacturers, too, would
have more confidence in a Britiah
made magneto operating on these pat?
ents, perhaps, than in any other type.
As a result there ?r a demand for
the revocation of the Bosch patents in
order to admit of this being done; but
as a suspension of the British rights
of the German patentees under this
act could only hold good for the period
during which u condition of war be?
tween the two countries endures, there
is little inducement for any firm to
embark upon tuch a legalized in?
If the war ended inside of six
months the enterprise would not be a
profitable one as mutters stand, for
the royalty then payable to the Bosch
company would be so much a handicap
as to cause a struggle between busi?
ness and sentiment.
It thus will be seen that the power to
confiscate the alien enemy's patent
rights in time of war is not quite so
practical a measure of defence as it
appears or was intended to be.
Whether it would be wise to carry
its operation beyond the war period
or?? other way? protect * the home
manufacturers ate matters for experts

Johnny Enzman, the young pitcher
recently taken over by the Brooklyn
Superbas from the Newark Indians,
has been loaned to the Rochester club

International League pennant. Enz?

Huge Increase Shown
in Sale of Ford. Cars
Sale? in August 300 Per Cant
More Than During
Same Month a
Twenty thousand six hundred and
thirty-aight Ford ears were sold during
the month of Augutt, this year.'Thla
is not a production figure, but the actv
ual salts made during the month.- On,
the other hand, it does not represent
orders received, for the company is still
thousands of -cara In arrear of orders
Thaae figures are extremely signifi?
cant. They mean that the aales for
August, 1914, are almost 800 per cent
more than in the ahme month ?last
year, when the company sold, in round
numbers, 7,647 cars. When it is re?
membered that August is always the
lightest month of the year in sales the
figures take on a new meaning. The
I real significance in this larger volume
of sales liea in tho fact that it en
' courages the faith that the Ford Motor
I Company will reach its goal of 300,000
i cars for this year.
When the company announced the
new profit-sharing plan whereby the.
buyers of Ford cars between Augutt 1
of this year and Augutt 1,1916,' were
to receive a rebate of, from f40 to $60,
in addition to an immediate reduction
in price, provided 300.000 cara were
told within that period; there wat much
doubt expressed that such large sales
could bo attained. That the Ford com?
pany knew what it .was about and was
not lacking in conservatism or sincer?
ity, is proved by these August sales.
To Increase'the aalet-' of'the dullett
month by 300 per cent indicatei that
the demand is present for the 300,000
Ford cart, for if Augutt jumps that
much what will happen when'the sales
really get under way in the real selling
Tho excellent condition of Ford busi?
ness is not due to sudden expansion in
any particular direction, bat results
from an advance all along the line. In
tome sections of the country there has
been, as is well known, a falling off in
motor car sales. In these sections-the
Ford haa more than held its own. Thus
in California, where Ford sales for?
merly represented one-third of the
total automobile sales of the year, they
now represent one-half of total sales.
Of course the announcement of the
new prices and the new profit-sharing
clan for owners had its effect in stim?
ulating August business, but the great?
est stimulant for Ford salea is the
61*5.000 Ford cars now in service and
which are to be met with on every
highway in the world.
i NEW LEWIS CAR !S H?RE
Will Be Placed on View To?
morrow by Stewart Oqmpany.
Motor car enthusiasts will have an
opportunity to-morrow to inspect a
brand new make of ear?the Lewis
"Six" -about which much haa been
heard in the last faw months. The
Lewis, which ia bailt by the L. F. C.
Motoi Company, of Bacina, Wit., will
be handled here by the Stewart Auto?
mobile Company, on Weat 67th st.
The'Leads la named after William
Lewis, one of Racine's wealthieat men
and one of the pioneer manufacturers
of motor vehicles in this country. As?
sociated with Mr. Lewis are Rene
Petard and James Cram, the for?
mer the designer of the car and the
latter the sales manager of the com?
pany, both well known throughout the
The Lewis is made in only one
modei, with a six-cylinder monobloc
motor 34 by 6 inches. The motor is
of the L head type, all moving parts
being fully inclosed, with the hood
made easily demountable for conven?
ience in inspecting and cleaning.
The car is said to be not only fast
but a wonderful hill climber, owing
to the low speed pulling power of the
motor, due to its long stroke. The
lubrication is both by force and splash.
The Oil is positively fed to tttty part
of the eng ne, clutch and transmission
from a reservoir constantly replen?
ished by the flywheel, which performs
the office of pomp.
Mileage tests During
Coming Electrical Show
New Records Likely To Be
Set on Board Track in
For the purpoee of demonstrating
the possibilities of the modern electric
vehicle, both of the pleasure car and
motor truck type?, the New York Elec?
tric Vehicle Association ha? perfected
plans for the running of a ?eries ot
mileage test? during the Electrical
Exposition and Motor Show at Grand
Central Palace froift October 7 to 17.
These tests will be run on the board
track, which is laid oat each year on
the third gallery of the big building,
for the purpose of showing electric
I vehicles in action.
One of the tests will be for the
] greatest mileage on a single charge of
I the battery. It is open to all types,
; but will probably be contested by run?
about?, with one or two possible en?
tries of light delivery vehicles. The
present record is said to be 244.7
[ miles, made on the streets- of .Cleve?
land In 1911. The ro?d ?eeorll is 176
! m'les, made recently in a run from
Boston to New York.
A second, test provides for a con?
tinuous day and night run throughout'
the ten days of the show. This is to
be accomplished by having two bat-1
teries, to be used alternately, or by
giving one battecy the required num
bar of short ?toa***?.'' Tb la teat is
for commercial vefcleies, as the resulta
achieved will be ntoat protiUble tor

An Eight Cylinder Cadillac
The matchless mode of motoring reserved to only a few privileged persons in the Old World
(at an almost prohibitive price) developed by the Cadillac Company for American motorists!
Serious minded motor car manufacturers have sought the
ideal power principle for fifteen years.
The Cadillac Company lias never relaxed for a month, a
week, or a day, its patient pursuit of that underlying prin?
ciple which would prove to be ultimate and final.
In the course of that long journey toward perfection, the
Cadillac Company has given serious consideration to every
reputable type oi" motor?endeavoring to scrutinize with
scientific impartiality the virtues and the limitations of each
and every one alike.
Building and experimenting in turn, with every type from
the single cylinder to the six, and from the poppet to the
rotary and to. the sliding valve, we have been carried for?
ward'irresistibly, by the impetus of our own research, to
the highest form of frequent-impulse motor?the V Type
It is admitted, we believe, that this Company produced in
the four cylinder field, a succession of cars which earned
the title "Standard of the World.*'
Beyond that, loomed for us only one hope and possibility
?the promise oi" a motor in which there would be no lapse,
no pause, no hesitation between impulses, but an overlap?
ping of strokes so ?complete as to produce a flow of power
almost literally liquid in its continuity.
We sought the medium by which the Cadillac would be
endowed, not with approximate freedom from gear shifting,
or approximate hill-climbing ability on high, or approd
imatclu swift acceleration, but with the highest pottiblc
form of these three characteristics.
The Cadillac already possessed those qualifications in an
extraordinary measure, but we wanted them developed to a
point beyond which it tens not possible to go.
This requirement pointed straight to an Eight Cylinder
Cadillac with four power impulses during every revolution
of the fly-wheel.
How fully these luxuries of travel have been achieved,
nothing but your first memorable ride in the new Cadillac
As the Cadillac softly speeds along under the almost
magic influence of this new power-principle, you become
oblivious to the wonderful mechanism which gives you
motion. The sensation is as unique as though you had never
motored before?the sense of floating through space comes
to you as it never came to you before.
It is useless to try to depict in words, thrills which you
have never felt?or to portray a degree of ease which you
have never experienced.
yield up a velvet quality of travel un
Had roads lose much of their terror, and hills seem almost
to flatten out before you?so easily, so quietly, and with so
little effort does the car surmount them.
In operation, you enjoy the extreme of flexibility?from
less than three miles an hour in crowded city streets and
congested traffic to more than sixty miles an hour on the
open highway, without change of gears.
Comfort is subserved in the highest degree by the absence
of vibration and the pronounced flexibility?and, again, by
the yielding springs; the ease with which the car is handled
and controlled; the smoothness of the worm bevel driving
gears, the soft clutch action and the exceptional sense of
rest and relaxation.
The supreme motoring experience of your life awaits vou
when you take your first ride in this trulv remarkable car.
