THE MAJESTIC. THIS IS THE CAR Now try and conceive a car almost as silent as the photograph Itsc-lt— ' car vibrant with pent-up power under fiinger-tip control; a cur that will glide noiselessly up alongside the aristocracy of motordom and lack nothing that the latter possesses except a higher price—and you will have formed a fair mental picture of the revelation that awaits you. Dismiss from your mind the Idea that you have ever seen a low-priced car which was In the same class as this $1550 four cylinder 30 horsepower Cadillac. Where you have seen little curs at a low price, you will now see a big car ut a low price. Where you have hitherto seen spidery outlines and bandbox proportions, you will now see size and strength and dignity. Where you have seen indifferent material skimped and saved to make possible a low price, you will now see a car built of the finest steels money can buy, used In full and generous measure—and the same palnstak- nag, conscientious system of construction, down to the last nut and bolt, that has been typical ot the Cadillac plant from the first year of its history.

Business men are to be shown the lines of legality and are to be directed in keeping within those lines which have been emphasized during the last four years.

"This shall be so that the men wh« conduct a legitimate business may understand that the government is back of them and does hot Intend anything to Interfere with their legitimate advancement." After the applause had subsided Judge Taft added: "It Is a question of the definite knowledge of the statutes and of thefr clear understanding which shall make the honest progress of our business possible. And that Is, In my belief all that is necessary to make thai progress substantial and enduring." Judge Taft apologized Mr directing his words Into such a serious discussion. "I know the difficulties that will arise on my new career," he added, "and I know that questions will arise that I do not know of now and that limes will come when my friends here will shake their heads and say 'poor Bill.' but all I ask Is suspension at Judgment until the situation has been understood. Its decision will rest upon the principles of sound and honest business polleles which I have out lined." What Judge Taft said preceding his plain business talk planned thp cluh Immensely.
