I llnnulsh his work In behalf of th
highway because of ill health; For this
I reason t,ic Tidewater representative
wanted, to enlist the interest and aer
I vices of some one elfte.
Held Severn! Coufcrcnccn.
I Conferences were hold with 15. C. I
; Telouze, president, of the Richmond
Automobile Club, and with I'rcston
j Belvin, president of tJie Rlchmond
I Go r ?To 11S V111 c - LiO U1 s a Highway Assocla
i tion. The result of these conferences
was that the matter will be taken up
by the local automobllsts In a very
few days, ami tin attempt made to
j raise'the entire sum at one time.
Interest lit the Gordonsvlllo end of
the highway Is increasing dally. TAG
i mcelw*igs held in Richmond and at
j Louisa have done much toward bring?
ing about a friendly feeling between
I iho rural residents and the city folk.
J They also had the effect, according
I to those who were in attendance, of
opening the eyes of Cue farmer to the
benefits to bo derived from good roads,
and Informed him of tho face that L-e
road w-as not being built so much for
the comfort of the automoblllst as for
the financial and physical benellt of
himself.
I Will Hold Another Meeting.
! A third meeting Is to be held here,
sbortly In the club rooms of the Rich?
mond Automobile Club. It is believed
! that at this meeting the committee ap?
pointed for the purpose of soliciting
monetary aid will be ready to report,
and will have ruised the amount need?
ed. The members of the club desire it j
to be understood that their Interest in
these several highways is by no means
selllsh. but Is manifested because the
members feel and know that go^^
roads are the best investment a State,
city or county can make.
I During the conference between
I Messrs. Belvin, Pelouzc and Armstrong I
i It was tacitly agreed that the cam?
paign for the money needed should be
made In the interest of both the (Jor
donsvllle and the Newport News road.
It was held that It would be easier
to secure all of the money by such a
method than to make separate cam?
paigns.
A number of persons have already
signified their intention of coming to
the aid of the roadbuilders. and 1?>-Ue
fear, is felt over any trouble In se?
curing tho necessary subscriptions.
l'lau to Moke It Lincoln Memorial.
A plan suggested by Mr. Pelouze,
aud which met with favor, was that
the people of the cities and counties
along the lino of tho proposed ?.i
way do as much as they could toward
perfecting tho roadway as speedily as
possible.
His Idea in making this suggestion
was that tho commissioners who hau
been sent abroad for the purpose of
suggesting a Utting memorial to' Abra?
ham Lincoln, had reported and had
agreed that a great national highway,
preferably from Washington to Uettys
burg, would be the most fitting tribute
to the memory of the murdered Presi?
dent.
It waB further pointed" out by Mr.
Pelouze that there was now in exist?
ence a highway between the two points
mentioned, and he thought that It
Virginia could show Congress that she
already had a road built from Gor
donsvllle to Richmond and thence to
the sea, that the legislative body of
the country would be willing to con?
nect the capital of the nation wi
tho capital of tho Confederacy by a
great highway to be known as the
Lincoln National Highway.
Money Appropriated.
There is an appropriation from Con?
gress of |150.000 for the Lincoln me?
morial, and this amount expended un
the road from Richmond to Washing?
ton would make it one of the great?
est and finest highways in the United
States.
In addition this highway would con?
nect the North and the South perma?
nently, and Would attract lo Virginia
hundreds of persons who arc not fa?
miliar with it or who have never aeon
the hundreds of places of vast historic
interest contained within the bounda?
ries of the Old Dominion.
Mr. Armstrong, from tho Peninsula
end of the road, will keep In touch
with Mr. Belvin, and as soon aa tho
executive committeo of the Richmond
Automobile Club has acted upon the
suggestion made ha wftil again visit
Richmond to confer with these men.
Hope for Knrly Completion.
The optimistic ones Interested are
of the opinion that the highway can
be completed by the latter part of July
At least that is what thev are work
in?: for. and that is why thev realize
that something must be done In a
hurry. Certain it is that there is
more interest in tho project than ever
before in the history of jrood roads.
One man expressed it as an awakening
of the frugal spirit of the farmer.
"The farmer's frugality,'* he explain?
ed, "was formerly exercised along tho
principle that money expended on roads
was money taken out of his pocket
In taxes He now realizes thut every
penny expended on the roads passlnu
his farm means an increase in the
value of his land: a .lessening of tho
expenses of hauling his produce to
market; bringing closer to him hin
market, besides tho great personal
! comfort he will attain from rldlna*
over passable roads."
This seems to bo the general opinion.
I and the existence of auch a feeling
augurs well for the success of tho men
, who are endeavoring to make th?
j Washington Richmond highway a suc
? cess, and It will be of material aid in
carrying the road from Richmond to
Newport News.

A Subject Now More Discussed in Richmond Than at Any
in the Past Fifteen Years?A Subject You Are
Going to Give Full Consideration Sooner or Later.
WHY NOT
Digest a few absolute facts and get them fixed in your
memory for future reference ?
Please note the following, PROVE IT TO
YOURSELF, and then exercise your own best judg?
ment before reaching definite conclusions :
Electric Vehicles have been rapidly multiplying
in every city of the country for the past three to five
years. Several years ago this city owned one electric
which was a failure. During the past five years Rich?
mond has owned 1 0 to 14 electrics and none of them
were a success. In the first place the cars never re?
ceived proper and necessary attention, and in the sec?
ond the make of cars bought were inferior?far from
standard.
One year ago the manufacturers of the standard of electric ve?
hicles secured representation in Richmond. The representatives
of this car soon found that it was impossible to do any business
until the people had learned the difference between a good elec?
tric properly cared for and an inferior car "manhandled by gaso?
lene car agencies and so-called battery experts and mechanics?
in fact, electrics were considered a huge joke. These same
representatives found it necessary to make battery and mechani?
cal repairs on other makes of electrics in order to put an end to
much well founded "knocking.'1' In the mean time seven cars,
manufactured by the company to enter the field with a fixed
determination to do business one year ago, have been running
and giving perfect satisfaction?doing all that was claimed for
them in the way of mileage, cost of operation, and more.
WHAT IS THE RESULT! To-day many of the most promi?
nent people of Richmond are more or less interested in electric
vehicles, and several manufacturers of various electrics are here
trying to sell cars and establish an agency. For these reasons we
ask you to get a few facts well fixed in your memory. The make
of car that lias brought about the present unusual interest is the
famous BEVEL GEAR, SHAFT DRIVEN
The car that compares with no other electric built: also the
PROVEN TO BE THE STANDARD ELECTRIC OF THE
until the Baker appeared on the ground. This company was not
possible local prejudice, for they knew their product would over
There must be some well founded reason. Note the following:
BAKER ELECTRICS have a less ampere draw (i. e!, current
consumed) under the same conditions than any other electric
in the world, consequently operate for less cost. The now fa?
mous shaft drive, perfected after eight years of testing and ex?
perimenting (longer than most manufacturers of electrics have
been in business), eliminates noise, chain troubles, friction, me?
chanical troubles, etc. Every agent of other makes will tell you
chains arc just as good, while at the same time the firm he repre?
sents is right now endeavoring to come out with some form of
shaft drive, having been forced to do so through the wonderful
success of the Baker Bevcr Gear Shaft Drive. The chain drive is
already as obsolete on all automobiles as the candle compares to
the modern incandescent lamp.
The Baker people have been first to introduce and standardize
every important improvement on electrics. The many exclusive
Baker patents, including the continuous drum torque controller,
produce results that are far in advance of any other electric.
Ever}' mileage record ever *made, by either lead or Edison bat?
teries, is held by a Baker. The mechanical perfection of^ the
Baker is as near perfect as has yet been produced in any auto?
mobile?it is the best balanced electric vehicle in the world as
to weight, number of cells to produce desired mileage, etc. Mr.
Emil Gruenfeldt, mechanical *.nd electrical engineer of the Baker
Company for the past nine years, ranks among the foremost
and best known automobile engineers of the United States and
Europe. Baker cars are lighter than that of any other manu?
facturer of standing. More mileage, or equal mileage, is obtained
from less cells, which means less power and operating cost and
less repairs and deterioration, as well as weight. NO OTHER
CAR GIVES THE SAME RESULTS, and NO OTHER MAN?
UFACTURER has been building electrics for so long a period.
No automobile manufacturer in the world has a better or more
reliable reputation.
car with which all manufacturers try to make comparisons?
WORLD. There never was a successful electric in Richmond
afraid to enter the field for new business, against the strongest
come this feeling as soon as actual RESULTS became known.
If your wife is sick you employ a doctor, because you do not
understand medicine. Tf you wish to erect a new building you en?
gage an architect, because this class of work docs not come in
your line. If the other man demands something from you which
you do not consider just you consult an attorney. Yet many of
these same "hard-headed" business men will purchase an auto?
mobile on conversation. You are not expected to buy Baker
cars on conversation. We prefer showing you exactly what they
will do and proving what the cost will be to operate. After you
have learned these facts we would like you to get the opinion
of any iirst-class mechanic. Have him examine the car and
SEE how the small number of parts are perfectly made and
assembled to produce RESULTS. He can explain to you why
mechanical troubles are reduced to a minimum and he can
also explain why the car runs so smooth and noiseless, with ab?
sence of friction and no chain rattles.
Conversation, paint and appearances never made any auto?
mobile give satisfaction?IT'S IN1 THE RESULTS PRO
.DUCED. Years of carriage or bicycle building means nothing
in the manufacture of automobiles. BAKER ELECTRICS are
beautiful, luxurious, noiseless and as mechanically perfect as is
possible to be prodced. Add to this the facti that a BAKER
was the first to be made, and vou can appreciate why BAKERS
are the STANDARD ELECTRICS OF THE WORLD.
Washington, D. C, owns more than 130 Baker Electrics;
other large cities own hundreds. Richmond now owns seven,
which is a small amount to be sure, but} more cars than that of
any other manufacturer, and the}' arc giving perfect satisfaction.
More Baker Cars are coming to Richmond, and when you are
ready to get an electric don't allow yourself to be deceived. Get
positive comparisons with' the Baker IN RICHMOND before
investing your money in an unknown quantity.
