truck which was perfected by the
Moreland lotor Truck Co., and
as far as we are aware, it is the
only company hi the United States
in production on 6-wheel trucks.
Another impetus given this type
of, vehicle was the enactment of
laws limiting the maximum load
on e:ch tire. With the ordinary
4-wheeled truck, the load is not
always evenly distributed and one
rear tire may carry a considcr
pl!y greater part 0f the load, than
the other, rear tire.'thereby. caus
ing damage to-city streets.
Road engineers have long com
plained about the destructive ef
fects of heavy trucks on the city
streets and highways in. general.
By means of the 6-wheel dual-'
drive balanced axle construction,
as perfected by the Moreland
company, the concentrated weight
on each tire 13 considerably less
when carrying a payload of 10
tons than Is the case with the or
dinary truck carrying ; five tons.

The- Moon "Molor Car - company
of St. Louis in a "decent report: on
factory sales since June, when! Its
new car . tho D!aia light straight
eight was introduced to the public;
shows that sales; in July jumped
103 per cent .'over ..July .'-'of ' last
year, T1 cent in August and
S3 per cent in September; wbHe
orders in hafid for October indic
ate that this month will show the
greatest galn yet recorded.
This almost doubling of sales
is of course due to the spectacular
success of the new Dbna.
Early this month two new models
wera. added to the Diana line, a
five passenger touring and a seven
passenger sedan, which now makes
it possible to, offer three popular
body styles including the standard
two-door sedan at a low list price
and factory officials are confident
that fall and winter business will
mark a new epoch in the history
of the Moon Motor Car company
for this season of the year.
The means by which' it is found
possible to offer all the advantages
of eight cylinder construction at
a price which competes with I the
"ger six cylinder cars. Is explain

accomplished this feat, by pointing

manager of the Parker stage -line

ized stage operators of the state
are not in sympathy with the at?
tack on the gasolipe tax. made by
W. K. Crawford In the United

Oregon interests. ;
v Mr. Crawford seeks to have the
United States courts - invalidate
the law of Oregon providing for
the present gasoline tax which is
used for the construction and
maintenance of the highways. s
Mr. Farker states that the stage
