Tlif statement, with the nmnea of the
ilnr.r. was ent to Mr. IIihIih yrater
diy by State Chairman Walter A. John
ion ninl waa made public by Mr. Hughes
Jilt brfore ha left for Ilrlilaeltainptnn.
It dliies of the contention made by
lime Democratic manatcem and the
O'Connell faction of the Progressives
that a Urge proportion of the party and
lit juniors were opposed to Mr. llunhei.
Not only la a large majority of the
luitpre for Mr. Hughes, but the en
rolled votera, the. rank and file, aleo show
an overwhelming preference for him ao
far aa they have been canvaaaed. Thin
h hern ahown by a poatal card poll
taken In New York city, the result of
uhlrh Mr. HiiRhea received from Hcc
rtt.iry John denies of the Rtnte com
mittee. Thla canvaae, conducted by a
dim of certified accountants, revealed
Mr Hughes na a three to one favorite
over Mr. Wllaon.
There was no end of aatlafactlon In
Republican circles yesterday over the
situation In the Progressive party re
vraled by those figures and the number
of party leaders who had pledged their
lurport to Mr. Hughes. It Indicated In
ttie opinion of many that the 1'rogrei
aires were In a process of absorption by
the Itepubllcan party as a result of Mr.
Hughes's nomination and that only a
remnant was seeking to command at
tention by their opposition.
Only rive Oat for Wllaaa.
In his letter to Mr. Hughes the Pro
rreaalve State chairman declared that
of the fifty-six members of the State
committee not Included among the
signers six had expressed a preference
for him though unwilling to sign the
statement; fourteen were undecided.
wnlle mi. y nve so far had openly de
dared for Mr. Wllaon. The remaining
thirty-one, according to Mr. Johnson,
had been opposed to the party Indorsing
Despite the contention of the O'Con
r.dl faction, there would appear to be no
doubt from this that the Hughes faction
could have forced an Indorsement of Mr.
Hushes at a regular meeting of the State
committee, had they so derlred, the
failure to do so at the Syracuse meeting
Delns iiue to disorder.
Of the fourteen county chairmen who
did not sign the Hughes atatement two
fxprcni-d their preference for Mr.
Huches, with six at yet undecided, five
not heard from and one vacancy.
The statement signed by the State
committeemen and county chairmen
"Vie, the undersigned, remembering
nur light ror the rule of the people
when you were Governor of New York
.ir.a your sturdy advocacy of progre.

President Wilson la likely to "get In

leaders say the President Is fooling with
dynamite In attempting to dictate the
nomination of Justice Samuel Seabury of
the Court of Appeals.

Heat a fltralaht Pare.
The members for the most pnrt kept
perfectly straight faces as they ap
plauded that senttmsnt.
Conflicting opinions were expressed by
the assembled Democratic lenders as to
Wilson's chances In New York. The ma
jority opinion, privately given, was that
he will lose the State by anywhere from
r.0,000 to 150,000 votes. A few of the
State committeemen Insisted Wilson
would get enough Progressive votes to
pull him through a winner.

through his friend. William F. Schnei

Written by Tom Botterill, Hudson Super-Six Distributor at Denver, and published as an advertisement in Denver
newspapers. Wc reproduce it here became of its unusual interest to all who enjoy motoring. What Mr. Botterill
did can be done with equal comfort and enjoyment by any owner of the 10,000 Super-Sixes now on the road.
I have just driven a
Super-Six from Detroit
1,530 miles, thru rain, mud and sand
without putting in a drop of water from the time we started, without lifting the hood
except to oil. without touching a wrench to any part of the machine except to replace one
mall wheel .bearing, without stopping the motor except to give my. companion a chance to eat
again, without the engine missing a single shot, without a puncture, without a rattle, and without
finding a single car in the whole 1,500 miles whose driver didn't lei
I went to Detroit to drive this car back for two
reasons. First, I wanted the fun of the trip.
Second, I wanted to find out at first-hand just how
this Super-Six will behave for an owner when he starts
on a long cross-country trip with it.
Mr. Mcintosh of our sales force accompanied me, and
we were in no hurry and after no records ; we drove as
we thought the average owner would drive.
My honest conclusion" at the end of this trip is that
the man who buys a Hudson Super-Six gets three times
as much automobile as he pays for.
I never had so amazing a trip in any car in my life.
This Super-Six had been taken from the Hudson fac
tory by the manager of our Detroit office only two days
before I got there, and it had had only 480 miles lim
bering up when we started back with it.
It had had no special attention of any kind and I
thought it only reasonable to expect to have to do more
or less adjusting as we came along.
But we did no adjusting whatever. We never took a
wrench from the tool kit except once near Belle Plaine,
Iowa, when we broke a small bearing in one of the
We left Detroit in a rain and we had mud for hun
dreds of miles through the East. Often we were in to
our hubs. Three times we covered pieces of road on
high we had been told we couldn't get over at all.
The Super-Six motor puzzled me the first time 1 ever drove
one last January, and I confess that it puzzles me even more
today. It responds with a lightness that has always made me
think of a greyhound. But on this trip, time after time it set
tled itself to long, steady strains with an evenness, sturdiness
and freedom from distress that were more suggestive of a
good draft horse trained to pull.
No piece of road anywhere stopped us. For two days and a
half we had so much rain that the storm curtains were never
lifted. But we came straight on through, stopping only at towns
that interested us, or where there were good msals.
You men with jaded appetites should have been with us. I
myself ate with new eagerness and relish, and as for Mr. Mcin
tosh, he left a trail of complete dcsolatipn and famine across
five states, the waitresses numbed at the elbows and the cooks
prostriite with exhaustion.
Why is it, I wonder, that many fagged, town-weary business
men still take their vacations in crowded sleepers and crowded
city hotels, monotonous in their sameness, when they could make
such a drive as I have just made, and have the thrill of com
bating the out-of-doors a thing that always puts nn edge on
the appetite and makes nine hours on the Ostermoor none too
We had rain, mud and sand to contend with, but wc never had
to climb out of the car, and as we rolled down from Cheyenne to
Denver Thursday morning through the Colorado sunshine, we
let us pass him sooner or later
felt like schoolboys finishing a vacation we came back to busi
ness with a pep and fresh fitness that no man ever felt at the end
of 1,500 miles in a Pullman.
Our first afternoon we drove from Detroit to Kalamazoo, 151
miles. Our second forenoon from Kalamazoo to Chicago, 179
miles. We spent most of the third day in Chicago, driving that
afternoon to Rochelle, 84 miles. The next day we drove from
Rochelle to Belle Plaine, 199 miles. The next day from Belle
Plaine to Omaha, 263 miles. The next day from Omaha to Lex
ington. 239 miles. Wednesday from Lexington to Cheyenne,
310 miles. Thursday morning from Cheyenne to Denver, 112
miles, in two hours and fifty minutes.
We got as high as 16 miles to the gallon of gasoline and the
average for the trip was 12.6 miles.
We were making the trip leisurely, and with little interest in
the time consumed between any two points, but when wc got
into Chicago it suddenly came to us that we had passed every
car going our way on every part of the road; the thought was
fatal. We got interested in the thing. I will confess that when
we again took the road we both had the same secret sporting
curiosity. We wondered how long we could keep it up.
We kept it up clear into Denver.
This Hudson Super-Six, which left the factory less than
two weeks ago, passed every automobile we camo in sight of
from Detroit to Denver 1,530 miles.
We were raced time and again on muddy roads and on good
roads, but every car we tackled was finally dropped behind.
I have an idea that this mud caked car, just as it stands on our
salesroom floor, can go out tomorrow and do seventy-five miles
an hour without a whimper.
That much speed is not necessary: it is not even important.
But you gentlemen who own Super-Sixes probably feel just as
wc do that it's rather satisfying to know that you have a car
that could clean up the road if you wanted it to.
And there is one other thing that I believe will interest all
owners of the Super-Six. It is the fact that in Detroit, the
center of the automobile industry, the Super-Six now stands in
a class by itself. On this visit I was surprised to find how
unanimously its position is conceded. Even the livery men
along the curb are now hanging fancy brass plates on all their
Hudson cars to catch the public's eye with the magic of the
The Super-Six motor is the great achievement of the year.
10,000 Hudson Super-Sixes are now in daily road use.
Owners of these cars arc selling the factory output of 150
cars per day.
I found also that the Hudson factory is being visited by an
average of twenty-five Hudson dealers per day, trying to et
more deliveries. The Sales Department's waiting room is full
constantly; the men who are handling the allotment of cars have
had to box themselves in to get time to carry on their work.
These things sound like exaggeration, but they are the sober
truth. The Hudson Super-Six is not only the achievement of
the year; it is the sensation of the year. I wondered at its ex
cellence before I made this trip. I wonder still more now.
