To Prefer Charges
Against Castleman
and Coutts, Editors
The Central Labor union ilclcsates
learned last evening that they liail not
been able to get rid of David CouUs
and William Castleman, publishers of
the Unionist, a labor paper, wh'.m
they publicly censured for making
charges of graft against the officers
of the Central Labor body. At he
meeting two weeks ago they passed a
resolution asking the unions sending
Coutts and Castleman as delegates to
withdraw them.
Last night a communication was
brought before the body, in which the
stonecutters refused to withdraw
Coutts as a delegate. After a stormy
debate, in which charges of railroad
ing and gag rule were passed the or
ganization decided that the only way
in which they could rid themselves of
the offending members was to offer
them a trial before a committee of
the organization and the secretary,
John Polian, was directed to prefer
charges against Coutts and Castle
man, based on the articles which ap
peared in the Unionist, charging graft

Almost 34 horse-power from this reg

34 actual, brake horse-power!
' Proved by an accurate dynamometer
test, made in the Maxwell laboratories
August 10, 1916.
There has been a lot of talk about
horse-power, and we just want to let
Maxwell owners and prospective owners
know that in respect to horse-power, as
in most other respects, the Maxwell
leads by a comfortable margin. Not
that we attach such great importance to
horse-power. We don't We never have.
Horse-power abundant horse-power
is only one of many superior features,
of the Maxwell.
We are selling motor cars complete
motor cars not engines or horse-power.
Horse-power is a matter that is second
ary to motor efficiency and economy.
A giant has no advantage if he does not
apply, or wrongly applies, his strength.
Maxwell cars have horse-power all
you want or need probably more per
pound of car weight than any other
automobile in the world.
But we don't make any loud cry
about it.
Because we have more than horse
power to sell you.
Because you are, and should be, inter
ested in results, the net effectiveness of
We challenge competitive tests. We
invite comparison.
Because we absolutely know that no"
car of its class or weight can surpass
the Maxwell on speedways, on rough
roads, through sand or mud, anywhere.
And because we know, and you will
know, that, everything considered, the
Maxwell is the World's Greatest Motor
Car Value!
