THE WHITE STEAMER WHICH
The most interesting announce
ment ever made in connection with
the automobile industry was un
doubtedly that made a month or two
ago to the effect that the new models
of the White Steam Cars could be run
on kerosene, or coal oil, instead of
gasoline. Everyone at once recog
nized that the use of the new fuel
would add materially to the advan
tages which the White already pos
sessed over other types of cars.
There were some people, however.
who were sceptical as to whether Or
not the new fuel could be used with
complete success, and, therefore, the
makers of the White Car, the White
Company, of Cleveland, Ohio, deter
mined to make a public demonstra
tion of the new fuel in the 1909 Gild
From the standpoint of the public,
no test more satisfactory could have
been selected. First of all, the dis
tance covered on the Glidden Tour,
from Detroit to Denver and thence to
Kansas City, was 2650 miles. This
was certainly more than sufficient to
bring out any weaknesses, if such had
existed. Still more important was
the fact that the car was at all times
while on the road under the supervi
sion of observers, named by those
who entered other contesting cars.
Therefore, it would have been impos
sible for the driver of the White to
have even tightened a bolt without
the fact being noted and a penalty in
flicted. At night the cars were
guarded by Pinkerton detectives and
could not be approached by any one.

HADE A SUCCESSFUL PUBLIC DEMONSTRATION OP KEatOSdE
ON THE RECENT 26oO-MILE GLIDDEN TOUR.
The complete success of the new
fuel while on the 2650-mile public
test and the advantages gained
through its use were well described
in the following dispatch which tt
correspondent of the New York Sun
sent to his paper at the conclusion of
"A feature of the tour which was
watched with special interest was
that the White Steamer used kero
sene, or 'coal oil,' as fuel instead of
gasoline. The new fuel worked
splendidly throughout the 2650-mile
journey, and all claims made in its
behalf were fully proven. First of
all, as regards cheapness, the White
driver secured kerosene all along the
route from 6 cents to 10 cents cheap
er per gallon than was paid for gaso
line. Secondly, the new fuel was
handled without any precautions, and
it was not unusual to see kerosene
being poured into the fuel tank while
the crew of the car and an interested
crowd stood by with lighted cigars
and cigarettes. At the finish of the
tour, the White was the only car per
mitted by ,the authorities to enter
Convention Hall, where the technical
examination took place, without
draining its fuel tank. Thirdly, the
new fuel proved to be absolutely
without smoke or smelL Fourthly,
kerosene could be purchased at what
ever part of the route was most con
venient, and not once during the trip
through the ten States of the Middle
West was there found a grocery store
where kerosene was not readily and
cheaply obtainable. Finally, the
