The committee tells Mr. Hoot It lias noted with approval "the signs manifest in your recent utterances that you are commencing to reallre the necessity of complying with the demand of the peoplo for liberal nnd progressive reforms." The letter goes on : "The newspapers of August .1 re ported an address to the Constitutional Conventlonmade by Mr. llarnes. which under the hypocritical gulso of liber allxlng the election laws, really attempts to destroy all that protection which has been gained so gradually and so labor iously. Mr. llarnes desires to prevent the Legislature from In any way regu lating the election of the party commit tees, the method of nomination for pub lic offices by political parties nnd their i rules of procedure. He apparently even ilounts tne nilvisarilllty or an official ballot, as he speaks of 'an official bal lot If any.' "You, Mr. Hoot, have figured so long and so prominently In the arena of politics that you must be fully familiar with the days when the law failed to regulate political primaries and to pro tect the voters thereat. You must rea lize that Mr. Barnes's proposition means 11 return to snap conventions, irregular caucuses and the complete control of party machinery by Irresponsible forces. "Accordingly, we would ask that you use your great Influence In the Consti tutional Convention to prevent the pas sago of any constitutional amendment that will deprive the Legislature of the State of New York ot the power to con trol party machinery and party govern ment, and to furtrler such proposed amendments as shall direct the legisla ture tu continue the enactment of laws providing for the direct nomination of public officers. "We take this opportunity also of re minding you that the peopiu of this State will never be satisfied with the alleged home rule measure recently re ported out of committee. Their demand Is for genuine home rule, not for any feeble and obscure Imitation." SPURS G. 0. P. LEADERS. Young; Men's G'luh Wnnte Pledges Redeemed In Constitution. A pamphlet, entitled "A Reminder to the Republican Members of the Consti tutional Convention," was sent out yes terday by the Young Men's Republican Club of New York, of which Robert C. McMnrsh is president. It is In effect a warning that If the majority delegates do not redeem their party pledges for constitutional reform the public will hold the party resimnslble. "The Republicans," says the pamphlet, "Include the majority of the lenders In the convention. It would be a sham to pretend that they were elected on a non-partisan basis. The responsibility is a party responsibility of the highest character." The Young Republicans mention six specific matters demanding Improve ment at tho bands of the convention. They are : ( 1 ) More consistent and re sponsible executive policy; (2) Legisla tures that give morn attention to Im portant questions and less to local, spe cial and trivial oonccrns : (3) surer und 'quicker administration of Justice; (I) I businesslike management of finances.

If 1 The Jewel of Consistency The time can be measured in days since the myopic prophets among the financial writers of the daily press advised us that the turn in thr tide of American business would be marked by the activi ties of the great manufacturing interests of this country, resulting from the pressing needs of foreign nations at war. Now, before the sound of their voices has died away, the investing public, impressed by the weight and force of the excellent -arguments set forth, ready, able and willing to purchase the securities so strongly recommended, are implored by the same writers to let them alone. The subject is admittedly somewhat outside the province of the Harriman National Bank, but we feel it a duty to many of our customers to speak this word. Manufacturers and dealers who are enjoying the benefit of war orders, or domestic orders, requiring additional banking facilities, will be welcome here and ca'ed for financially, agreeably to their responsibility and the'.r balances, on modern banking lines. UNKING HOURS FROM I . M. TO I T. M. SAFE DEPOSIT VAULTS I A. M. TO MIDNIGHT Harriman national Bank KIPTH AVENUE AND 44TK 6T NEW YORK A NEW EIGHT CYLINDER CADILLAC The One Proven C of Up-to-Date ar Design The up-to-date motor car is known by its V-Type Motor. This super-efficient design was first adopted in America in the Type 51 Eight Cylinder Cadillac. Thirteen thousand of these cars arc being used by thirteen thousand highly satisfied owners. This is a record for a high grade car that is unequalled. Several other makers have copied the principle of the V-Type Motor in new models recently announced, and the rest, no doubt, will follow. It will be copied again next year, But cannot be equalled this year While other makers are just adopting the V-Type Motor, that the Cadillac introduced a year ago, we are delivering to customers a new Eight Cylinder Cadillac which incorporates all the experience gained from the manufacture and operation of 13,000 cars. Thus the Cadillac is again a full year ahead of every other make. Its improved V-Type Motor will again be copied in other cars appearing a year hence, but it cannot be equalled this season. The Cadillac is at least twelve months-13,000 cars-in advance of any competitor. Cadillac Type 53 The new Eight Cylinder Cadillac, known as Model 53, is even a better car than you would expect from this leadership, and the enviable reputation of its makers. In comparison with its highly successful prede cessor the new model is more refined and im proved. It has added qualities, in chassis and body, ease of handling and comfort, power, flex ibility and speed, which are summed up in the word's super-efliciency and super-luxuriousness. One of the strongest features of the new Eight Cylinder Cadillac is that of accessibility; another the system of forced feed lubrication, which has proven so successful in the 13,000 Eight Cylinder Cadillacs now giving such ex cellent satisfaction in private service. Not the V-Type Alone It is not the V-Type Motor alone, but the Cadillac Eight Cylinder V-Type Motor, built into a Cadillac Chassis, according to Cadillac ideals, and by Cadillac mechanics, that has proven so successful. During the years' that Cadillac engineers ex perimented with and tested the V-Type Motor various multiples of cylinders were tried out, and the "eight" proved the best. The results obtained in laboratory and test cars have been substantiated by the 13.000 cars in private use. Therefore the improved Cadillac V-Type Mo tor has eight cylinders, like its predecessor.
