Olson Company Will Begin Active Campaign for Sale of lu Fac
tory anb Advertising Novelty Products in Every State in the
Union Much Demand for Patented Machines.
(The Olson I'lioto Machine com
pany, a corporation manufactur
ing, (tio(oKiaph printing ma
chines here, has purchased the
business, plant and pood will of
tbe Olson Photograph company,
and the two businesses will he
combined. A brief announcement
lot th(s sale was made in' the
Journal Saturday. .. ;
The Olson Photo Machine com
pany makes several types of ma
chines by which photographs can
tie made from negatives at a great
saving of time and labor. The
machines were invented by CI. II.
Cls,on. Though the company is
Hill young and has had but limit
ed capital, its machines have been
sent to many states, and have
given perfect, satisfaction every
where. The Olson Photograph com
pany, the company bought out,
was originally Htarted by Mr.
Olson, but was later sold to his
partner, I.. 1. Ifialt. This con
cern uses the Olson machines in
its business and does a big photo
graphic and novelty advertising
business. Its business extends to
both coasts and was growing so
rapidly that more capital was
needed to meet tho demands for
Increased output, hence the sale
to the bigger company, which has
more capital.' ;
' The new company, will put
traveling men oij on the road to
sell both the machines arid take
orders for photographic work and
advertising novelties. The com
pany has paved the way for the
success of the traveling men -by
sending out much literature to
photographic men throughout the
country. They will have had con
siderable acquaintance with the
machine by the time the rep
resentative calls, so it is figured
! I hat the men representing the
company will have much success
in disposing of the machines, as
they fulfill a demand for a ma
chine that would save time, labor
and money in printing photo
graphs. The Olson company is cap
italized for jfL'.r).00n, of which
about $lf,00ft has been issued.
About, $1,000 more will be issued
at this lime to carry out, the next
plans. The directors of the con
cern are: 0. II. Olson, president;
T. II. Pollock, vice president; Dr.
K: V. Cook, secretary and treas
urer; A. L. Tidd ami II. F. Coos.
The Olson company is a strict
ly Plaltsmouth enterprise and one
whoso, growth will benefit IMatts
moulh. There is no reason why
the firm should not grow to em
ploy 100 people, or-even several
hundred, as the machines are
something new, there is a uni
versal demand for them, and they
are' fully covered by patents.

Complains of Treatment.
The l'laltsmouth baseball team
complains that they were, ."horn
swoggled" by the Union baseball
team Friday. They went there
with the understanding that their
expenses would be paid, but after
the game the manager could not
be found, and several merchants
at Unon had to come to their
rescue to get their teams out of
the barn. For a lime it looked as
if they would have to camp at
Union until they could get money
from home. The local boys feel
much indebted to the following
Union merchants, who assisted
I hem:, V. K. Thomas, H, I
