In , then rapid ' evolution which lias
marked the development of the automo.
bile from the crude affair of compara-
lively few years aero Into the present
efficient and attractive machine, there
t are few laymen who realise Just what
that evolution has cost the- business
men of the country. Dally we read of
changes in th automobile dealers of the
different cities. In the moat of cases the
ntory reads that so and so has discon
tinued business. Not so, however, in the
case of the Pacific Motors compary,
who have handled the False-Detroit car
In this territory for the past year or
more: they are now announcing the ac
quisition of ; the Btevens-Duryea and
Msxwell line. This gives them a com-
, plete Una of cart ranging lb price from
75 to $000. ''
i The Pacific Motors Company ' have
also . been very fortunate In securing
the services of H. S. Colter as manager.
Mr,' Colter needs no Introduction to the
readers of The Journal, as he was for
merly .in i charge of , the Pierce-Arrow
business when that ear was handled by
Howard Covey i In connection with the
radii Iso line, 'When the Pierce-Arrow
leopie established a separate organise.
1 lion in this city Mr. Colter was selected
to direct the management, and remained
there : until the opportunity presented
Itself to become connected with the Pa
cific Motors company. Mr. Colter is
emphatic in his statement that he be i
lievea H absolutely necessary to have a
low, or medium priced car In connec
tion with a high priced car if any money
, is to be made. After becoming eon
netted with the Pacific Motors company,
Mr. Colter had the opportunity of taJc-
' Ing over the Boomr-Sklnner concern, Or
egon distributors of the Maxwell Una.
Realising the necessity of having a low
j rloed car In connection, with the high
grade line, the deal was made after a
thorough examination of the Maxwell
line by the mechanical department of
the pacific Motors company. After put
ting one of the Maxwell "25V through
every hard test kuewn to the Portland
automobile dealers, it was taken into
the ; mechanical , department and 1 dis
mantled and found to ; be in perfect
condition, and it was from this examin
ation that U was taken on as one of the
lines of the concern, N

agency, will have-'charge of the whole
sale department of tho,. Pacific Motors
company and cover the territory con
trolled by the different lines,

. plated arrangements with Mr. Brown to

Ttient of the Sludebaker Corporation.
The present quarter of the Oregon
Motor Car company on Twenty-third
street are entirely too small to take
care of the Studebaker business. The
move will be mad about November 1.

Boone-Skinner Auto company, Oregon
distributors of the- Maxwell line, baa se.
cured ' the Multnomah county distribu
tion for Ford .automobiles, succeeding
Peterson & Blerett, who have gone out
of business. Mr. Boone has not as yet
announced hr new location, but prom
ises that It will be on the west aide ad
jacent to the present automobile row on
Alder street If possible to secure loca
tion. - I Allshous & McDowal. who have been
connected with the Peterson & Blerett
agency at East Eighth and Hawthorne,
have taken over the building lease and
secured the local distribution of Herres

Portland is fat taking Its place
