Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 31, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, January 31,1913. THE LETHBklDGE DAILY Umalu Page 5 Russell-Knight Touring Model - $3250 Russell-Knight "28" Roadster Mddel - $3200 Russell-Knight Seven Passenger  - $3500 F. O. B. Wbst-Toronto The Russell-Knight "28 ; The' appearance of the-Russell-Knight "28" is commanding. One's first and last impression of it is pleasing in every respect. The first and last thought about it is "I would like to own that car." ;, , You can see at a glance that the car was designed complete. It wasn't a case of fitting an old body design to a new chassis or vice versa. .. Our instructions to the Engineering Department were to -produce a car, new from the ground up. The Russell-Knight Engine is the most perfectly developed ."Knight type engine that has yet been built. It is four cylinder 4% bore by 5,^j in. stroke; the long stroke giving specially even pulling power,at slow'speeds. The left-hand Drive and centre control..leaves all four doors  available.' One doesn't need to -go around in the mud or show to get into the car. This feature alone stamps the 'Russell-Knight as the most modern "of all cars. .... Force-Feed Lubrication. The system of lubrication is positive. It has been perfected and simplified.. The oil is strained three times after leaving the bearings before reaching the pump. Electric Lighting and' Self-Start-; Ing..,.The, Russell Electric Starter; is easily and simply operated -y dev^'oijs nositive efficiency under all circumstances. There is-a' combined electric lighting and self-star,ting dynamo and motor. This.;.in. connection with the storage-"battery in the car, riot only supplies power to start tho motor, but provides electricity to . keep the batteries charged and to light all the lamps on the car. The Dynamo is of the most improved type. The armature takes the place of the fly-wheel of the engine and on this ac- count it has not been necessary to add a single new bearing or a single new moving part,. nor any extra weight to the mechanism of the car. All five lamps . upon the car are electric. The switches are on a centralized control box. Magneto Ignition. iTh^etoigh' tension dual ignition system, which is entirely independent of.' the Self-Starting battery arid .motor generator, insures absolute efficiency at air speeds. The Clutch , is of .".'the multiple disc type arid is incorporated in the same casing as the- transmission, and forms a unit with it. It is proof against'burning and will engage and release without "grabbing'' or "slip ping." The .Rear Axle...T1he axle is of ' the; full floating type with roller bearings. It is not otily ample in strength fop the -car;  but it . is silent in-operatiori:'- > Warmth for the Tonheau. a heating system has, .been "provided for the tonneau by utilizing the exhaust of the engine. This may be turned on .and off as" desired. The Tonneau Wind Shield is another exceptionally good feature ' for making winter riding comfortable. The Body Is of the Semi-Tor-^ pedo type. It is of full aluminum with all-rolled mouldings. There'isn't a single fixture or-part- visible upon it. The long sweeping lines make it particularly attractive. Canadian requirements have been fully considered. The front clearance from the ground Is 11% in., while that of the rear axle is 11 in. The running boards are free, from encumbrance; the tool-box. is placed under the driver's seat the spare rim is carried at the back of the car. The mud-guards are of attractive design and so fitted that *vieV nrotect the whole of the body from the splash of the wheels and from dust. The upholstery of the car makes for the extreme comfort of - the passengers. The upholstery is of the Turkish type and is exceptionally deep. .Tlree...- 3G x 4% in. Dunlop Traction tread, non-skid tires, provide , ample tiring and the . greatest insurance of safety and of convenience. The Power Tire Pump enables the driver, to inflate the tires, with no more physical effort than making the hose connection. The comfort of passengers has been further provided for by unusually wide and long springs, 37 x 2% in:, semi-elliptic front and 6G x 2% in. three-quarter. scroll elliptic springs, rear.

Edmonton, Jan. 30.-A committee, consisting of Edward J. Fream, hon. secretary andquestions, and we are satisfied� that we are at las> on the road to get something done." All Were. Plaastd President Treglllus,, of Calgary First Vice-President-JCiuineey, of Bar ons� -Second - Vice-President Carswel o-f Red Deer, and Director George Be' ington, of.vEdmonton,", also Bpoke ver enthusiastically of the m/mner i which their claims had been recelvc by the "government, and" the outcoir of their meeting. "Thegovernme: showed much inter.est'atfd sympathy raid Mr. Tregillus, "and we belle-,that- very satisfactory legislation w' result." ' ' : All the members of the Cabinet, with the exception of Hon. Duncan Marshall, Minister of Agriculture, and Hon. C. R. Mitchell, Minister of Public Works, who are out of the city, were present at the meeting when the delegation of the U. F. A. made their wants known. Briefly, their request was that the government grant a charter for an Alberta co-operative elevator company, which company will erect elevators wherever it can get a local unit of the company, composed of farmers in different districts to take stock, the government to advance 75 per cent, of the cost of the elevator to be secured � by twenty-year mortgage, repayable in. annual instalments with interest. ' ' That this will meet the demands of the farmers was evident from the statements of the members of the executive after the delegation had left the Parliament buildings. "The way things are shaping up now, everything will be satisfactory," said Mr. Fream; and when asked .if tlie request made by the delegation would satisfy the demands of the United Farmers of Alberta, Secretary Moodhridge also replied that it would. "Sure, it 'will," he said. "The United Farmers put up that proposal and if it is granted, it will be satisfactory to the U. F. A. We are well satisfied with out progress so far, and are confident that some satisfactory legislation can be drawn up by the committee." Mr. Woodbridge also pointed out that the legislation proposed would be an improvement on the Saskatchewan legislation, which was first asked for by the U. F. A. What U. F. A. Desire Mr. Fream also stated that legislation based oh the demand made by the delegation would be satisfactory to the United Farmers of Alberta. "As far as I can say at the present time it will," he said. "We will get together and after we have completed our'work, will report back to all the parties interested, and from the way things ere shaping up now, every-hing will be very satisfactory." Premier-Sifton was also interview-:d last night, and asked for a state nent regarding the matter. "The iositi'on''Of the government is plain," re said. "The government is favor-bla- to assisting the construction of armers' elevators, with proper preparations to see that the control does lot pass out of the .hands, of the farm rs of Alberta. A committee of , two (embers of the' government has been ppointed to act with Mr. Fream, and ' as been authorised to engage the ser-ices of A. G. McKay, at the expense f the government, to try arid,crystal % their ideas into--an, act which will roperly safeguard both the money TA the rights of-;, the , iaririers; and 'is legislation will be presented at je next session of the> legislature.''
