ELECTRICS FIND
POPULAR PAYOR
NOISELESS ' CARS APPEAL TO
WOMEN
Aluminum Bodies Experimented With
to Reduce Weight of Machines.
New Signal Device Sounds
Like Calliope
Electricity, by common consent, Is at
present the least available of the three
modes of propulsion for rough-and
ready purposes. But the electric
vehicle holds a place of Its own In
which it has and can have no competi
tion. It is the dainty, noiseless, odor
less car for light city use on good roads,
where charging stations are numerous.
Safe, simple, clean and easy of control,
It appeals to women for calling; shop
ping and boulevard and park driving.
For long distance runs and rough
work over bad roads In bad weather,
the electric vehicle Is not claimed, even
by Its makers, to be the best. But It Is
significant that many unprejudiced au
tomobile experts believe that electricity
ultimately will take first place for all
uses. One writer terms It the "dark
ihorso'of traction.", Its peculiar place
in the auto world at present is Indi
cated by tho fact that men who main
tain more than one machine usually
have uti electric vehicle in the collec
tion for tho uses pointed out.
Having; accepted gasoline, steam and
electricity as the motive powers, the
makers have devoted recent efforts to
perfecting the methods of generating
and applying these powers. Their ef
forts hnvo followed the lines leading
to simplicity of construction, operation
and control. The automobile makers
believe that tho general lines on which
cars now are being made are to bo the
permanent lines and that from now on
It is a question of Increasing the sim
plicity, reliability, speed and power and
at the same time decreasing the cost.
In order to decrease the weight of
the automobile there has been much
experimenting during the -winter with
aluminum bodies and the results have
been so satisfactory that several
makers have adopted the aluminum
body. This effort to reduce the weight
in parts which do not contribute to
/lower or speed has been the outgrowth
of the desire to increase power and
speed without increasing 1 ■ .the total
weight of tho machine. For, talk as
much ns they hiiiy about tbo gradual
depreciation of tho speed element in
autoing-, the agent will tell you that
few people buy automobiles to whom
speed Is not a prlmo consideration. The
buyer may bo a staid gentleman of
business, totally without the scorching
Instinct, but when he buys an auto he
wantH one In which he knows he can
travel at a prodigiously rapid rate "If
ho wants to." Therefore tho makers
are still seeking ispced.
Will the Price Come Down?
If there is one question which Is
being asked more than any other at the
auto show it is this:
"Will the price of the automobile ever
be down to the point where we, who
cannot afford the original outlay and
current cost of maintenance of auto
mobiles at present, can afford to own
one? If so, when Is that happy time
to be?"
Like a good many other questions
that the "outside" public is asking,
the question Is not easy to answer.
Your automobile salesman does not
dare allow himself to be too enthus
lastlo over any material reduction^ In
the cost of autoa in the near futon-,
for to do so would be to place a pre
mium on delay In buying. And be
■idea, tie could not answer the question
IC ha wanted to.
To the man, and even more to the
woman, who never tried to operate a
motor car the seeming multiplicity. of
levers, wheel* and crunks 1b forbidding,
and the salesmen have found it one of
their luwdost tasks -Xo convinca ■ the
poMlblS buyer that th« thins? '« really
much simpler than It looke. The num
ber of perflons of ample means who
allow the AuppottPrt difficulty of opera
tion to prevent th«m from buying ftn
auto Is snfd by the agent* to be very
large, and It la to overcome this ob
jection that Improvement* tending to
simplicity constantly nre being dturtled.
Then there has been another distinct
line of Improvement, In the trade It
In known an Rccepslhlllty. Translated,
It meann that motor cam now are
being built bo that the operator may
get at any of the parts without taking
»he whole machine apart or doing con
tortions out of the range of any but a
professional. It will be seen that the
catalogues of most of the concern*
dwell on this- point of "accessibility."
There Is a Very good reason for it. The
Illustrated Joke of the fat man lying
on his back under a broken nuto on
a lonely road ha« become about tia
nearly standard with comic papers na
the chlcken-crosßlng-the-rond Joke,
Alho the Joke about the chauffeur ne
gotiating -with the antagonistic farmer
for the hire of a pair of horses to
pull a crippled auto back to town.
' New Models Strong
These quips may have served to
amuse the public, but they have ali>o
nerved to make the public shy about
buying automobiles. Therefore the
manufacturers are showing for their
1906 models . machines In which the
probabilities of breakage have been
much reduced, and which, In event of
the some time Inevitable hrenk, can
be repaired with less difficulty and In
convenience than heretofore has been
necessary. In the same connection the
makers have paid a good deal of atten
tion to strengthening the points of
greatest strain, heavier axles and
larger-sized tires being 1 conspicuous
among the changes.
Vlstors to the. Chicago auto show of
1908 will see the limousine In greater
numbers and variations than ever be
fore. Reference to the automobile dic
tionary shows us that the limousine Is
the upper works ot the closed car—
the kind that looks no comfortablfl to
the pedestrian when the wind is blow
ing forty knots an hour.
in automobile building there are
several problems which remain un
solved year after year,. and Vhlch still
are beingr argued In the trade. One of
the principal ones Is the question of
tires. The : problem, without techni
cality, may be stateu thus: If a tire
that punctures comparatively easy Is
more comfortable to ride over . and a
"punctureless" tire transmits to your
spinal column all the inequalities of
tho road, which is the better tire to
adopt?
-Then there is the old question of tho
most advantageous position in which
to place the motor, a bone of conten
tion which the experts fought over till
the argument was called a draw. There
are' enough of these technical argu
ments to fill volumes if the heated
theories were published, but the public
haß little concern In them as a rule.
However, an inquisitive young woman,
evidently with sensitive nerves, did
raise a question while examining a
booth of accessories, that the public is
vitally | Interested In. Succinctly the
question is this:
Why Is the Horn?
"Why la the automobile horn?"
Why not a bell, a whistle or a buz
zer? The manufacturers do not seem
to know. The horn was, therefore is.
Its "honk-honk" ha* come to »be as
sociated with the auto' and, being dis
tinctive, is likely to remain. The his
, tory of the automobile horn is some
what clouded, although the anatomy of
the thing is a small science of itself.
For the consolation of "those who fall
to appreciate the' dulcet beauty of the
auto horn notes it is to be noted that
another • signal has been Invented and
the device is on exhibition. It is called
Gabriel's horn, although it partakes of
the nature of a calliope, being a fair
imitation of a steamboat "whistle. The
signal is not called the horn of Gabriel
in any spirit of sacrilege, and the
name Is not Intended to suggest any
of the possibilities of sudden transla
tion to another world by the automo
bile route, but it happens that it was
invented by a man named Gabriel. It
has not superseded the old-time horn
to any great extent, but, left to a pop
ular vote of the nonautolng public, it
probably would win. ','..■'

Rector of Christ Episcopal Church
Addresses Young People on the
Strength of Principles
Found in Bible
Rev. Ilaktr P. Lee, rector of Christ
Episcopal church, preached the bac
calaureate sermon to the graduating
class t>t the Los Angeles high school
yesterday morning at Christ church.
His subject' was taken from lleb. 8:5.
lie said In part:
"When we consider the principles of
bulldinfc up mnterlal things, it mat
ters not whether It be the digging of
the Panama cnnal or tho establishing
of tbe Owens water system, every
thing Is practically the same, but when
we are Interested In the building up
of the characters of our boys and girls
there Is much to be Inculcated, both
materially and spiritually Into their
minds and hearts.
"Tho subject was broached nt one
time of the doubtful expediency, of ex
pending so much money and energy
on 'one boyj and the question was re
solved to this und unswered that: 'If
It Is my boy, he Is worth all.' This per
sonal feeling shouhf be extended so
far as possible to 'the other bay.'
"Jesus Christ nnd the tearehlngs of
the 151 ble are the fundamental prin
ciples whereby to be saved. Many peo
ple think that they can go along
through the world recklessly, and have
a good time and then check themselves
In season to bo saved before they die.
These are dangerous positions, devoid
of absolute eternal safety. They
would have to start their repentance
back where they began their objection
able lives and continue until they left
off.
"Sensible calculation Is much better
than frivolous caprice. Do not let Tom
Palnc's Infldclism come into your
minds. Keep it out by reading and
profiting by the teachings of the Bible.
There Is no other principle of safety
than to follow the Master In forcing
wickedness out of our hearts.
Value of Work
"We are not the rightful owners of
what we possess. We are only the
trustees" of our holdings under God's
care. But we should. work for the good
of his great cause and the man who
wiH_not toil should suffer loss. Take
up your own cross and follow him
without selfishness. It is by constant
hard work whereby we accomplish any
thing worth having. And when it
comes to giving to the Lord, give until
It hurts and not be a mere . passive
figurehead.
"As we look upon the picture of Lin
coln, we can ,draw a comparison to
the picture of Christ to illustrate the
light of the world, and may the light
of the picture of our Savior shine with
you In . vivid brightness.
"You can never stagnate a high ideal.
I say to you young men, when I was
considerably younger than I am now
I had tremendous Ideals, which is the
case with many young men starting
out in life. But I can say that a really
high ideal never fails of its purpose.
"Who Is going to set up the pattern
of your womanhood and manhood?
Avoid meanness and keep impurities
out of your minds. Read only the best
of literature that will benefit you spir
itually and morally and you will thank
your God for It.
"Do not fritter your lives away. I
do not mean by that for you to abstain
from good amusements. I love to see
young- people marching along and en
joying . themselves In the act of form-
Ing characters for their Master."
BAER MAKES STATEMENT
By, Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 11.— George
P. Baer, president of the Reading
company, has issued a statement In
relation to the action of the 1 house of
icpresentativea of Pennsylvania last
Friday, in introducing a resolution in
structing' the attorney general to bring
cdurt proceedings against the anthra
cite coal carrying roads if on inquiry
he finds they are violating the con
stitution of the state. The resolution,
which was introduced by Representa-
Creasy off Columbia county, a Demo
crat, will come before the state senate
tomorrow for action. Tho resolution
names the Pennsylvania railroad, the
Philadelphia & Readlnpr Railway com
pany and the Delaware, Lackawanna
& "Western Railroad company.
In his statement President Baer
says that the Reading company's
right to own the stock of the coal com
panies and secured under charter was
granted before the adoption of the con
stitution. These nre vested rights, hj
says, and tho constitution expllcltely
declares them valid. Relative to the
averment of the resolution that "It Is
alleged that the price of anthracite coal
has been raised since the last anthra
cite strike $1.25 per ton, yet The so
called operators are refusing to allow
the miners an increase in wages, thus
another strike Is threatened," President
Baer cites figures to prove that wages
and materials havo Increased to such
an extent that the company's increased
profit per ton In the past seven yearn
has been 10.3 cents, labor having gained
G1.7 cents in the same time.
Mr. Baer says that the present
prosperity ot the Rending system is not
due to profits on ocal mining and car
rying, but to tho heavy increase of
Miscellaneous freight, passenger und
bituminous coal traffic. ..;.-•
