The hew truck retains all of the features of the 1915 Bulck truck and adds a specially built f Delco electrte starting system, a top and storm curtains, and a much more comfortable driver's seat These Improvements are sure to make the new arrival a favorite among the 1500 to 2000-pound commercial cars. In speaking of the new truck, C. M. Rffne, Oakland manager of the Howard Automobile Company, Pacific coast distributor of Bulck- truckaBd pleasure . earn! says: . "The Bulck factory has Improved the Molel C4 truck ln.-the iwZMsrAS possible. It 'would certainly have been a mistake to change any, part of the mechanical construction of the 1915 truck. Of the hundreds of these trucks we have placed with Pacific coast owners, we have yet to hear the first complaint of real trouble. The greatest Improvement on the 19H " truck Is the addition of the self-starter. Thls--w1ll be a great saving not only In the cost of operating the truck, but i .will save the truck from a great deal of tinnecetmary wear, Without a starter a ' truck, driver Ih making what he Intends tD he a short call, will let his lilliriiSl .

This new move la looked upon as a protection measure of the French automobile manufa-tirers against the American Industry and also as a source of revenue. America has a tax of 45 per cent on French automobiles Imported costing over $2000 and of 30 per cent under $000. The present action of France exactly reverses the situation.

BIG AUTQ UT m Chandler. Car . Factory Proves Successful in Huge .. Undertaking. Word has Just been received by the Peacock Motor Bales Co., Chandler distributor for Northern California, from the factory to the effect that the Chand- motor 'r Co. has arranged to Increase Its capl- run to avoid the labor of hand-cranklngt and what he Intends to be a short .call, ofun lengthens "out to a half hour or more. In the meantime, the Injotor In his truck Is running, id1Ji fjribt only burning up unnecessary oil and, gasoline, but la doing Itself more harm than ,hej same amount of real running would do. "With an efficient self-starter thlsj condition Is entirely removed. There la absolutely no labor required to start ; the motor. Simply touoh a pedal with one foot and the motor, starts. It Is easy to "Imagine the time and energy this saves tn i year's running. " "Those who follow the automobile sections of the local press will remember that it was one of the 1915 Bulck trucks that acted as pilot car on the Yosemite tour, held las(, September, and also that It was a Bulck which hauled a 2000-pound load over, the Tioga pass In October. Tioga pass, 9t42 feet, haa the distinction of being the highest elevation reached by , any public joad, In California, and so far as known, the Bulck truck Is the first nnd-only commercial car that has ever crossed through this pass. We dc not hesitate to say that the new Bulck truck will take a full capacity load any place that a touring ear can go. tal stock to $10,000,000. The object of thi, Increase according to the officials of the factory Is to provide for a greater Increase In production of Chandler cans tnd to permit the following cut of an xtenslve selling and advertising cam paign In the near future. With this additional capital the Chandler will rank as one of the largest as well as best f 1 -, nanced automobile . manufacturing companies In the country. "The fact that the Chandler factory has found It advisable to Increase Its capital stock to $10,000,000," stated . U Peacock, manager of the Peacock Motor Sales Co., "shows clearly the strides this company Is making In developing Its business with the motorists of the country. The splendid reception the 1916 models have received all over the land and the uniform record of achievement both in economy and durability made by these cars has proved to the American people the worth of Chandler products." Peacock announced that there would be no change In the personnel of. the Chandler Co. as result of the Increase in capital stock. AMMETER SHOWS TROUBLE.
