WASHINGTON, Sept 14. A portentous,
MW complication was Injected today Into
America's International relations:
Bhall the United States Government be

Thlr was the question raised by the pro

mission In conference with New York

looked upon as ranking In Importance

Public Works, who praised tho association
and Its purposes. This purposo Is to pro
moto frltndly 'relations between the con
tractors and the people of tho city and to
prmnote co-operation with the city govern

delay between the time a public project

pletion. "The city Is frequently at fault In this
work," he said. "There Is too much led
tape. Much of this can be done away
with bj our help. Sometimes the ofll

O0O.0CO In my department, and I am
plc.ised that 1 can look In the eje of

on Chestnut Street
In the work of repaying Chestnut street, Philadelphia, the Autocars of the McNichoI Paving and Construction Co.
attracted much attention. Four cars were in use the first two doing what it formerly took nine teams to accomplish,
These Autocars hauled both men and materal sand, cement, earth, broken asphalt, wood blocks and Belgian blocks,
carrying loads over the torn-up paving, car tracks and rough roadbed, as well as over soft dirt
They made 12 trips each in every 10-hour day and worked double shift both day and night. Each traveled up to 91
miles in 1 0 hours, and could do more but for the inability of the men to load any faster with their shovels,
Mr, McNichoI was astonished by the work of the Autocars especially as, he says, he did not consider it was possible
for any truck to do what the Autocars accomplished. He has just placed an order for two more Autocars.
Autocars are used in every line of business by over 2600 concerns. Ask for a detontrvtkm in your ow rwiiimu.
