un ci vuidn.
Fear that the Harriman Interests are
attempting to secure holdings and re
adjust track arrangements, to block
the plans of the Hill Interests to gain
entrance to the East Side freight dis
trict, will result tomorrow in a lively
squabble before a special session of the
City Council, at which a proposed or
dinance will be introduced to prevent
the Harriman lines from doing any
thing whatever to change the present
East Side situation before the common
user franchises, now before the Coun
cil, are settled.
The special meeting of the Council
has been called primarlty to consider
the proposed ordinance, requiring the
placing of muzzles on dogs allowed at
large, but the official call of the meet
ing, is so worded that any other busi
ness desired, can be considered. "A
special session for the transaction of
general business." is the stipulation In
the call. -
The proposed ordinance to block the
manipulation of East Side trackage and
property ownership has been prepared,
and will be flted with the City Auditor
or Introduced Into the Council meeting
direct. It provides against the Harri
man interests changing in any way the
East Side situation as it exists at pres
ent. It is the plan, of those back of the
measure to have it put through the
Council at the special session, and to
have -attached the emergency clause,
which will make It possible for the or
dinance to become effective as soon as
it receives the signature of the Mayor,
Instead of having to wait the statutory
time before becoming effective.
Both Roads Are Active
Apparently there is a great deal of
activity on the part of both of the
railroad interests, to command the East
Side situation. The Hill- lines have
done all they can to work out a plan
wherebv they can proceed with their
tracks, from the depot in North Port
land, southward along Front 6treet,
thence across the Steel bridge and
across the common user approach, east
of the bridge, to common user tracks
on Third Street.
To work out this plan, it Is said, the
engineers of the North Bank Railway
were out at daybreak on several oc
casions two or three weeks ago, mak
ing surveys and measurements and
mapping out the possible route, which
could be taken to break the "bottle,"
which the Harriman lines have main
tained on the East Side for many years.
The Harriman officials opposed the
plan of the Hill officials, at a meeting
of the street committee of the City
Council recently, at which the scheme
for Invading the East Side was an
nounced and discussed. This meeting
followed a number of secret conferences
of officials of the two interests, at
which no settlement of the East Side
difficulties couid be reached, according
to announcements of the officials at
the street committee meeting.
Proposal Have Beea Made
It Is understood that all kinds of pro
posals were made by the Hill officials,
but that none were acceptable. Among
these was an arrangement. It is said,
whereby the Hill lines would not at
tempt to use East First Street, where
the through trains of the Southern Pa
cific are moved. This was to be in
lieu of the granting of the use of cer
tain other East Side streets and tracks.
As announced by officials in the street
committee meeting, efforts to "get to
gether" on this proposition, had been
without avail. An effort was made by
two members of the committee towith
hold First Street from the first para
graph of the proposed general ordin
ance establishing the East Side common
users, the object being to allow the
companies to make still another at
tempt to settle this question between
themselves, but this proposal was vot
ed down by the majority of the mem
bers of the committee.
The rumor is current, and apparently
from eood source, that the Harriman
officials are decidedly busy negotiating
deals and working out plans to block
the Invasion by the Hill road. Under
the usual run of events they would
have several weeks to do this In, be
fore the Council put through the or
dinance establishing the common user
nrivlleEes. Just how the officials plan
to do this is not known, nor to what
extent, but it is believed that It Is plan
ned to block the entire Invasion.
I'nless the proposed ordinance Is
withdrawn from the Council meeting
a lively session Is anticipated.

PORTLAND. July 27. (To the Ed

Politically we have been and maj
continue to be of the same party. If

a Taft champion. Is more anti-Roosevelt
than pro-Taft. While I supported
Ti-iint Taft four years ago, I voted
for Colonel Roosevelt in the late pri

Perhaps there are thousands In Ore

Oregonlan wish us to support President
Taft in November: it so, oota n '
pose It can best bring about this re

WE, announce for 1913 big improYe
ments in Chalmers cars in comfort,
convenience and appearance. For it is along
these lines that the greatest advances in
automobile building are to be made.
Few changes have been made In our chasses. The
mechanical features of our cars have been right from the
beginning. Satisfactory service in the hands of 2 1,000
owners proves this.
Here, then, are the principal additions and Improvements
on Chalmers 1913 cars:
Easier Riding Qualities
Luxurious comfort is built into every detail of Chalmers
cars. The Turkish cushions, 11 inches thick, are soft as a
down pillow. They are the highest-grade automobile cush
The upholstery is of the luxurious overstuffed type. All
seats are wide, filled with high-grade hair and covered with
heavy, soft pebble-grained leather.
The long wheel base minimizes road shocks. Big wheels
and tires, and long elastic springs make all roads smooth.
More Conveniences for the Operator
Electric Lighting, the last touch of luxury. Is regular
equipment for 1913 on the "Thirty-Six" and the "Six." The
Gray & Davis system which we use is featured n some of
the highest-priced cars; we believe it is the best lighting
Just touch a switch on the dash and you can light at will
head, tail, and side lights. No hunting for matches or gas
tank key. No getting out of car in dust or mud.
And no more cranking. The Chalmers air pressure starter
made 1912 a self-starter year. A season's use has proved
this the 'simplest and most efficient starting device yet de
signed. You simply press a foot button on the dash and
compressed air, released from a tank beneath the car. turns
the motor over until it starts on its own power. No danger.
No strain on motor.
Continental demountable Rims reduce tire trouble to the
minimum. Occasional punctures you may have are no longer
a serious Inconvenience.
On the new style Chalmers dash Is carried every control
and indicator ignition switch, self-starter button, electric
light switch, speedometer, gasoline pressure pump, car
buretor adjustment, air gauge, oil sight feed, priming lever,
horn bulb all easy to see and easy to reach.
Chalmers cars have always been known for their "looks."
For 1913, they are even more beautiful than In the past.
Flush-sided metal bodies have the graceful bell-shaped back.
Dash is of one piece with body. Top of hood and sides of
body form one line from radiator to rear seat.
Handsome nickel trimmings will be regular equipment.
Leather lining throughout the body and on the dash leaves
nothing to scratch or mar. Twenty-one coats of paint and
varnish give a finish that cannot be surpassed.
We have perfected Chalmers cars along these lines, we be
lieve, to a greater extent than anyone else, because for the
last ten months we have directed all our efforts to making
our cars even more comfortable, more convenient and more
beautiful than ever before. ,
The Chalmers "Six,"
$2300 A Maximum Car
Quantity production and increased manufactur
ing facilities make possible this unprecedented price
of $2300. Here is a tried and proved six-cylinder
car of the finest quality of Chalmers quality a
thoroughly high-grade six-cylinder car at a medium
In addition to the big features of Comfort, Convenience
and Beauty listed above, please note the following;
The- "Six" motor is a giant of power. Though rated at
54 h. p.. it actually develops 60 to 70 h. p. The long-stroke
motor Inches bore by 5 inches stroke gives it a
strong "pull" in sand or mud or on the steepest hill. It can
be throttled down to a walking pace on high gear. It picks
Chalmers four-forward speed transmission provides a gear
for every requirement. It enables you always to select the
gear that will carry your car through any kind of going in
the quickest time and with the least strain.
Big wheel and tires 36 inches by 4H inches Insure easy
riding and cut-down tire trouble and expense. Wheel base
. 130 inches.

splendid long stroke motor 4i4 inches by 5 inches has
wonderful pulling qualities. Quiet and smooth running at
The four-forward speed transmission is one of the dis
tinctive Chalmers features largely responsible for the suc
cesss of the "Thirty-Six" last year.
Other Chalmers features which made this car such a
marked success are retained- suoh as dual ignition, de
mountable rims (five), genuine honeycomb radiator, dash
adjustment for carburetor, large brakes, frame and steel
connections of extra weight and strength.
The 1913 Chalmers Thirty-Six" offers you every motor
luxury at a medium price.
The New Chalmers "30"
With improved motor, Chalmers self-starter, 34x4
inch tires, demountable rims, larger brakes, beauti
ful, new flush-sided body, the 1913 "30" at $1500

The price includes also gas lamps and oil lamps, Prest-O-Lite
tank, dual ignition, full tool equipment.
For the man who wants a light, fast. -low-priced, but
classy car, the 1913 "30" is the best buy ever offered.
Two body types are offered: 5-passenger touring car,
$1500; 4-passenger torpedo, $1500.
Fixed Chalmers Policy
Quality Cars at Medium Prices
For 1913 we are adhering to our established policy of
always giving the greatest possible value for the price.
We have incorporated in our new models, at medium prices
the features which characterize high-priced cars and many
other features not found on other cars of any price.
Chalmers cars have always been known as quality cars.
We have never built a "cheap" car, but always high quality
cars at medium prices. Big production has enabled us to
build such cars at lower cost than could anyone without
our volume. '
1912 Our Record Year
This past year 1912, was the best year we ever had. It set
a new Chalmers record. Our business showed an increase
of 43 over the season of 1911. '
We believe that our business will further increase as
people appreciate quality at medium price Instead of quality
at high prices or mere quantity at low prices.
We believe the more automobiles come into use. tne
greater, will be the conviction that it doesn't pay W try
to save $300 to $500 on the original price, and buy sometning
merely because It is offered at a low price.
Medium-oriced cars of quality not only ours, but other
good medium-priced cars offer the best value for the
money in the long run, and you don't have to run them
very long to find it out.
Built in Our Own Shops
Chalmers cars are built by ' Chalmers workmen in
Chalmers shops under Chalmers inspection. We build our
motors, transmissions, axles, self-starters, steering gear, and
other important parts. We cut our own gears; heat-treat
our steels. We even have our own foundry.
No automobile manufacturer builds in his own plant more
of the vital parts of his car than we do. No motor car
factory is more completely equipped with new machinery.
Experts tell us no car is built with greater care or more
skillful workmanship than the Chalmers: none is subjected
to more careful and painstaking Inspection.
Backed by Sound Guarantee
Chalmers cars are built and guaranteed by a company of
the soundest financial standing. We have a plant covering
30 acres of ground and have $6,000,000 Invested in our busi
ness. We have made this great investment because we ex
nect to be in this business permanently, and we are con
vinced that permanent business can only be built up where
a manufacturer makes his own parts.
Making our own parts means greater accuracy in our
cars and greater value for you. The saving we make by
eliminating parts-makers' profits goes into added quality.
We have prepared a book about the Chalmers factory. It
tells, in an unusually interesting way, how Chalmers cars
are made. Write for it. '
Order Now for Early Delivery
Now is the time to order so that you can get the use of
your car during the best motoring season.
See these cars now at our showrooms. If you look them
over carefully, we are sure the cars will more than bear out
every claim. Again we say, compare them with other cars
point by point price by price value by value. Your verdict
is sure to be favorable to the Chalmers.
