Myers, "that members of the bar got a chance to tell a judge what they really think of him, although they of ten crave the opportunity." Pays Tribute to Fairness He pointed to Judge Spencer as a jurist of ability, of fairness, of im partiality, fearlessness and honesty. "What higher tribute," said he, "can a lawyer give a judge? What else is necessary to make a successful judge. One who possesses thsee qualities is certainly an ornament to the bench. "It is not pleasing for a lawyer to lose a case, so that a Judge cannot please everyone. But he can by ren dering his decision and rulings in a fair and impartial manner, satisfy every one and Judge Spencer is the kind of a judge who has done that. -1 Th( , „ who have appearod bê fore him have always felt that he has ruled honesty and impartially and to the best of his ability." Senator Myers referred to the work of a judge "s of the most responsible in the world. "There is nothing nob 1er or finer of a material nature," he said, "than the administration of jus tice from the bench, end when a judge can feel thaâ he has the friendship and confidence of the lawyers who »re appearing in his court, and Judge Spencer has always had it, it aids him in the discharge of his dûtes."

States Company Progressing L. Wakefield of Forsyth, for the past si* years director and treasurer of the Powell Power Company is a business visitor in Red Lodge this week in the interests of the Powell Company. While here Mr. Wakefield demonstrated a model of the Powell mechanism to mechanics and engine ers at the local mines, who were out spoken in seeing the advantage the Powell invention. The Powell Company's four cylinder truck engine, according to Mr. Wake field has been tested by the oldest auto school in the United States and also by the Clay Engine Works, both of which concerns spoke very favor ably of it. Mr. Wakefield recently attended a special meeting of the board of di rectors and saw a copy of two royally contracts with companies who agreed to build and sell engines and pay the company a 1 21-2 per cent royalty. The prospect for the early product tien of the truck engines relieves the company of the necessity of sellmg | very much of their stock n order to «et into actual production. The company's patents have been granted | »> ^ countries, thus protecting the , stockholders rights, according to Mr. I Wakefield, ? Following is a brief synopsis of the ' principles of the Powell mechanism, which will prove of interest to the ! local stockholders of the company, 4 Power times travel must equal the j work done. That is the law of Phyai Actual tuts have proven that by ad j milling only the same amount of air j into the same cylinder bore (the air j «nd 9«« being easily expanded a little fills the PoWell cylinder, whch with the extra churning, causes a mort perfect mixture then being compress ed into these roc spa«« in each ad vantage of »rrtaUr U.Lue as well as tremendous leverage, It easily xpands twice as fast and twice as far in the same period of time. And increased piston speed means proportionate increased force or pow ;er trenn milted to the crank (thru the Powell leverage) with out change the »peed of the crank or its distance of travel. Therefore by allowing the gas to expanded along the line of least resist ance (that is on the end of a lever 46 degrees off center) we cannot help doubling the speed of the piston thru the Powell leverage whch must exert double the turning force or effect on the crank. Example a boy can turn a log with a cant hook which a man cannot turn by hand, because the boy apply* his force so far off center while the man his so close. Hence this formula:—100 pounds pressure on our piston delivers 100 pounds pressure on the end of the lever times 10 in. equals pounds, whch dlivers 200 pounds on the middle of the lever times 6 in equals 1000 in. pounds on the 6 in. crank stroke, whre the standard eng ine of same bore and crank stroke would deliver 100 pounds on the pis ton tmes 6 in, on the crank equals 600 in. pounds. Only thru the Powell leverage can Motion or Speed of the piston be in creased without increasing the Travel or Speed of the crank. (Continued on Page 12) 1000 in.
