longest Trips Made by Portland
Enthusiasts This Year Auto

keen made this year by local motorists
Is that which has just been completed
ty S. B. Huston and wife. Miss Blanche
IkHuston and Carl Huston. The party re-
turned from California, last week, after
being; absent from this city over two
Senator Huston shipped his 30-60
Stearns from Portland to Los Angeles
tweveral months ago, there beginning a
'long pleasure trip throughout the lower
part of the southern state. Although
the roads were In miserable shape a
igrreat part of the way. owing to the
arly time when the Junket was begun,
'the party was not daunted and carried
xut the original schedule.
Down through Kedlands, Riverside,
end anally to San Liego, the Huston
'party went In their big car. From
j5an Diego they travelled by way of
fiunta Barbara and along the coajt
coute to San Francisco.
"Many places we found the roads in
A terrible condition," said Mr. Huston.
"They were slippery here and sticky
there, and were almost impassable In
places. We were forced to go tip
through the Indian Valley over roads
that motorists in other machines had
tried and failed to negotiate. It was a
eplendld trip, however, and was thor
oughly enjoyed throughout."
Several days were spent at Paso Ro
ubles, and a number of side trips in their
automobile were made by the Hustons.
Tney returned to Portland the early
part of last week.
Exhibiting a number of well-known
cars, an automobile show will be held

Ahe show, providing Important matters
4do not prevent his leaving San Fran
clsoo. Windsor T. White, president of
the White Motor Car Company, has
written to the local concern that he will
Blso probably be here for the ehow.
He had arranged to go direct to San

5. O. Murray shipped his machine to
The Dalles last week, where he will be-

IX. A. Hover, a business man of Spo
kane, who Is well known in this city,
passed through here the early part of
the week. Mr. Hover recently returned

much of the distance being made in an
automobile. Mr. Hover crossed the con

The Graham Motor Car Company ac
cepted the agency for the Regal auto

now definitely closed with the factory
for the agency in this State.
A report was curculated here in the
first cart of the week that the Over
land Company Intended to build a fac-
t ' ' '.;' ' --it
ISsStt I
i r-rfr-rJ ! f&''i U t
tory to cost $1,000,000 in this city. L.
E. Crowe, local agrent for the Overland
concern, gives the report little cre
dence. .
Charles Freund. of Astoria, purchased
a Maxwell car last week.'
Among- the automobile purchasers of
the week were Al. Gevurtz, of I. Ge
wurtz & Son, and Mrs. Ethel W. Grubbs.
Both bought Maxwells.
M'ith his daugtiter. Miss Doris Clark, at
the wheel of the car. Dr. E. G. Clark and
family will leave for a novel trip to Mt.
Hood and points beyond the latter part
of this week. Miss Clark is an expert
driver, having a practical working
knowledge of the automobile, and will
probably handle the Overland '40" in
which the journey is to be made the
Ifreater part of the way. Dr. Clark plans
to leave here April 29, and will be gone
for at least 10 days.
Leaving here this morning, P. Marsden
will makeia three days" automobile trip
through the country surrounding Salem in
his 40-horsepower Overland car. Mrs.
Marsden will accompany him.
"With Old Sol getting in his good work,
thereby putting the roads in excellent
shape, automobilists of this city are plan
ning many trips out of Portland. One of
the longest junkets from the Rose CSty is
planned by J. O. Glllan, a local business
man, who expects to leave the middle of
the coming week for Seattle. He hopes
to make the entire trip in his Overland
machine. With Mr. Gillan will go his
wife, who is also an ardent automobilist.
One of the prettiest cars in the city is
the Chalmers-Detroit "40," of which H. L.
Keats & Co. have received a carload. The
illustration shown was taken in the City
Park, where the beautiful roads are now
in splendid shape. C 13. Fehr Is at the
wheel of the machine."
One of the finest cars in the city Is
that which has just been received by C.
D. Brunn. It is a 40-horsepower, seven
passenger Studebaker, and is equipped
in special style, with all the latest im
provements. Mr. Brunn is planing a num
ber of trips out of Portland during the
coming Summer.
. .
Dr. A. A. Griff received his new Stude
baker touring car last week. It is painted
olive green, and is a handsome machine.
Dr. Watts, of the Western Auto Com
pany, left last week for Stansfleld,. Or.,
taking with him a new car for Dr. Sloan,
of that city. Dr. Watts will probably re
turn to Portland the early part of this
week. While in the country, he will make
a number of side-trips of exploration and
will return with a fund of information
regarding the roads In that section of the
Numerous automobiles were shipped to
out-of-town purchasers during the week.
The weather has been good, and interest
in motoring has received a decided im
petus. Among those who had their cars
shipped to them was G. M. Cornett, of
Prinevllle, the car being a Mollne "20,"
E. D. Suitor, of this city, left last week
In a Moline machine for Salem, where
he will remain for several days.
Not a little interest has been created
In the flag-to-flag contest which is to
start from Denver on May 2 to the City
of Mexico, a distance of 2400 miles, which
will be covered in 21 days, or approxi
mately 114 miles per day with eight
hours" running time. In the City of Mex
ico there are in the neighborhood of 8000
automobiles, 75 per cent of which are of
foreign make. This seems strange owing
to the prominence of the American man
ufacturers, and this republic being a
sister country.
Automobile riding by night when not
indulged in to too great an extent is
beneficial in a number of ways, accord
ing to a local physician. Night driving
clears the mind of a man and fills his
lungs with pure fresh air, after a hard
day's work. The rapid passage of the car
gives rise to a sense of buoyancy and
the reaction therefrom causes a feeling
of drowsiness which makes the autoist
sleep liko the' proverbial top. Especially
is this true in the case of nervous per
sons. ...
A local enthusiast suggested the other
day that a tour, somewhat similar In
plan to the Glidden tour, be arranged
for Oregon and Washington. It is a
good Idea, and would work out beautifully
If handled in the right manner.
. .
"One thousand in 1910" u the slogan
of the Automobile Club. With that num
ber of members the local organization
would be enabled to do wonders for the
sport in Oregon.
According to the mortgage record, Man
hattan Island goes in debt, on real estate
security, to the amount of SSOO.OOO each
day, but the dally payments keep the total
at a lower proportionate level than it baa
ever been before.
