. Tha newest and latest automobile that
has arrived In Portland la the handsome
' ' FtaperToleda car that haa been seen en
the "streets for the paat three days. The
ear -fk ono of the famona Pope-Toledo
tQurJng machine and ie being., demon'
strsted her by F. M. Keeton of Toledo,
-Ohio,- Mr. Keeton broughtthree of. the
care bare, and It la quite likely that
tha H. U Keats Auto company will han
dle them In thla city. Tha care are
built by tha Pope Manufacturing com
pany of Toledo, a corporation operating
It factories. In the Pop Toledo fac
tory are' made tha care that ranee. In
. price from 41,100 to tlJfl-r
-The waoaaxlJbinon'lJirihU city
are ie horsepower and carry a guaran
tee of el mllee an hour with a load ot
five persona. Tha Unea of tha ear are
very pleasing. With full equipment the
car. weighs M0 - pounde - and - rune
. amoothly. The fame of tha Pope-Toledo
haa reached around tha globe. " At Del
Monte, California, last year Qeorae Ful
ler drove hie car, a 14-horsepowar. ma
chine. In 1:0 -, the record time for
.tourlna cars. Afterwards Fuller made
''the present record time with the same
car tn l:e l-t at Loa Anaelee.
Aa an evidence of the worth of the
ear. It might .be mentioned that of the
' three automobllea -selected to repreaent
America. In the International - race to
be held In France this year two are
.Pope Toledoe and the third Is a loco
mobile. Mr. Mulr and Mr. Lytle will
drive the Popes In the races. , Lytle ie
a noted driver, jrlnnlna third place in
laat- year'a bia race. . flnlahlnc ahead
of 17 higher power machines.
'Did It ever occur to the caeuai ob
aerver that tha automobile demonstra
tor get "worked" more times than al
most any other bnalnese man? Still
such is the case. Right here is Port
land, auto men complain that persons
who never have a thought of purchas
ing .a. machine, manage to make the
rounds of tne different auto agenclea
. and enjoy autoing for over a week -at
the expense of tha agents. ' After the
'workers" nave visited all of the agents,
their auto rides cornea to -a end. And
the enljr one who la out-of pocket is
the auto man.. Such treatment ie un-
" fair to the auto men's waree are Just
as -valuable as any -Other' business man.
.Anyway It la a rather cheap way of
letting .one's friends know that auto
riding is good tor .health . and wealth.
Tha agenta are only too pleased to give
demonstrations, but they are human and
- do not relisli being "worked" too often.
' The', good weather now ought to be
an incentive for the auto ' men to get
busy and have a hill climbing contest
or aa auto tourney under . way. Such
exhibition are instructive to all con
cerned end are always Interesting.

"Many efforts hsve been made to I

vlved aa suited to 'bus purposes. The
points claimed In favor of each etyle
are . cheapness, trustworthiness, com
parative simplicity In handling, and
freedom from, noise and odor. Bach of
the great , London . omnibus companies
has adopted Its type of motor car, and
each is striving to-aee which will be the
first to make the change in locomotive
power. The first installment ot the new
autocars, are now running for blre-and

when the entries close. As it is the
published Intention of the French club
tn select its team for the Vanderbllt
race by choosing the five cars that make
the best showing in' the elimination
trials for the" Bennett cup race, it Is
obvious that It cannot comply with the
