perfects Ita plan. Oregon will bar
means of rarrylnK on the rood road
movement at a creatlr reduced taxation.
The plan suggested by Howard M,
Ooey. president of the Corey Motor
Car Company, on of the largest deal
ra In the Northwest. Is to tax erery
automobile In tne atate 25 cents for
each horsepower for car up to those
cf 60 horsepower, for those ahova SO
horsepower the plan Is to assess each
horsepower Si) cents.
As there are nearly 500 motor cars
In the Stat, half of whk-h are In Mult
nomah County, this would mean
large fund for the road builders every
year. Knougb support could be real
tied through this plan. It Is said, to
keep all the roads of the state oiled
and to help greatly In building; new
highways.
Pleasures Are Approved.
This subject was discussed at an in
formal gathering of the good roads
men of Portland at the Beck building
last Thursday night. Dr. Andrew C
fcmlth. president, appointed a commit
tee composed of Lionel K. Webster,
Howard M. t'ovey and E. Henry Wem

tion concerning It. They adopted the
following resolution, which will be pre

Convention Uisgcst Yet.
The convention tomorrow will be
one of the largest ever held In the
late, as there are many bills cf vital
Importance to the road question to be
considered. Delegates are coming from
every county In the atate. and all are
armed with suggestions and data con
cerning the road conditions la their
sections.
it Is probable that measures adopted
y the Oregon Oood Roads Association
at this convention will be submitted to
the Legislature this Winter.
Mount Hood Itoad Progresses.
Already plans are being outlined to
carry on the good mads campaign for
next Summer. According to rresent
plans. Multnomah Counly will have a
network of hlghwaya equal to any In
the t'nlted States. It Is planned to oil
all the boulevards within the state.
The average horsepower of the auto
mobile being ahvut 3 and the pres
ent rate of taxation being 17.50. with
1000 cars In the state, money enough
can be had to oil and completely pay
Tor the maintenance of the roads.
K. Henry Wemme. father of the
Mount Hood road, will continue Im
proving that highway nextprlng and
Summer, and hopes to complete it by
next Fall. He had a large crew at
work on the boulevnrd all Summer. In
addition to the sum collected by Mr.
Wemme from property owners and
automoblllst In that district, he has
Ipent several thousand dollar of his
wn money on the highway.
The rood roads delegate from Co
lumbia Counly will hare a favorable
report to make, as will delegates from
Tillamook. Clatrop. Washington and
other counties.

ROM Hood River" comes a new and
skillful recruit to Portlands lmporHng
llst of women motorists. The accom
panying picture shows Mis" Tnpre
Adams, the fair recruit, at the wheel of
r.ew 1011 model Cadillac "30." While
out testing tho natty new motor, pre
liminary to exchanging for It her 1910
Cadillac. Mls Adams waa waylaid by
The Oreginlan's earner man. and
graciously posed for the picture.
As a student at the Portland Acaaemy.
Mlts Adams is very busy with her bookev
but not t-o busy, she snys. to find time
for an airing, every afternoon, in her
car. so she has ordered It chipped from
Hood IllvtT. and will have it changed.
Immediately upon its arrival., for a 1911
Cadillac. She l very Impatient u ue
again at tlie wheel of her own car. and
says s.'ie Knows tne recrcaiion 01 wit
afternoon's spin will make her studies)
much easier.
That MiHs Adsms is capable of handling
a motor with no small amount of skill
and Judgment, is. Indicated by the fact
that she learned to drive on the Mount
Hood roadei. and that she haa been over
them all. many times1 and in all sorts of
weather conditions. without getting
"tuck" in the mud.
"I haven't even had a puncture yet."
said Mi Adams, "and all the repairing
wisdom I have so carefully stored up
for emergency, hasn't had any chance
lor application. We haven't very good
roads at Mount Hood yet. not as good
as we hope to after while, so one has
to drive very carefully from the start.
When we do get our Hood River roads
fixed up. it's going to be one of the
most delightful portions of the state In
which to motor. Meanwhile, I am very
Impatient for my car to come, so that
I can try It out on some of Portland's
beautiful hard-aurface avenues."
Miss' Adams has taken several long
tours, and has driven to the base of
Mount Hood twice.

DEMAND IS LARGER
Many Auto Dealers May Find
Their Supply Too Short.
BAYERLINE IN PORTLAND
Manager of Warren Motor Car Com
pany Optimistic Concerning the
Year's SalesNumber of Cars
In I'se In West Surprises.
J. G- Bayerline. rice-president and
general mazsger of the Warren Motor
Car Company, of Detroit. Mich., was a
Portland visitor last week, leaving
Thursday night for San Francisco and
California cities. He inspected the
Warren-Detroit agency In Portland. He
came to Portland from Seattle, where
he established an agency.
Coming fresh from the automobile
center of the Cnlted States Mr. Bayer
line was In position to discuss the
automobile business for 1911. as seen
from the eyes of the manufacturers
themselves. He said:
1 am afraid that many automobile
dealers will find themselves terribly
short on cars when Spring and the rush
season comes Acting under the theory
that there was considerable danger of
an over-production of cars In sight for
this year, many dealers have curtailed
their orders for Spring delivery.. Con
sequently some of the factories will
not produce as many cars as was first
anticipated.
"However, this will only apply
to a few of the many automobile .man
ufacturing companies in the United
States, Most of them are going to in
crease their outputs, not lessen them.
In spite of this. It seems to be the Im
pression that by ordering their cars
when they had the opportunity to. as
suring them of certain delivery, many
dealers will not be able to supply the
demands during next Summer.
"Everything in the Detroit automo
bile factories is going along harmoni
ously, the officials declaring- that 1911
will be the banner year of the automo
bile trade. . For one, I am of the same
impression. Especially is this true of
the medium-priced cars, the kind which
the man of moderate means can own."
Mr. Bayerline Is on a tour of the
country in the Interests of the Warren
Motor Car Company, and has made
stops at almost all the Important cities
on the way from Detroit to Portland.
He is enthusiastic over the Pacific
Coast, both as an automobile territory
and as an opportunity-presenting com
munity. "The extent of the automobile busl-
nesa on the Pacific Coast in that part
which I have already seen. Is almost
staggering," continued the Warren
Company's general manager. "I never
realized that there were really so many
automobiles out In this territory as
there are. Your roads out here are
comparable with those of any of the
Eastern cities. Roads have a great
deal to do with the automobile traffic
Where good roads are to be found,
there you will see automobiles."
Mr. Bayerline will return to Detroit
via the Southern route, after seeing
California. He expressed the wish tTiat
he might return by way of Portland
and remain over a few days more, but
his business would not permit.
After hearing Mr. Bayerllne's opti
mistic remarks concerning the busi
ness condition of the country relative
to the automobile. H. O. HlcKox. man
ager of the Warren-Detroit Automdhile
Companv, of Portland, placed an order
with him for another carload of cars
to be shipped Immediately. The local
distributers expect a shipment of these
n almost any day. The warren-ue
troit demonstrator is kept busy about
the cltv. Hill-climbing Is a favorite
asset of the car.
