Dealers of Nearby Towns Embrace
Opportunity to Get Sapallea
Without Extra Tin
The success of Omaha's second annual au
tomobile show Is assured. The automobiles
were all Installed for the opening; the
Fredrlcksnn airship hangs from the top of
the stage; the pictures were a success, and
visitors are arriving from Nebraska and
Iowa In large numbers. Demonstrators
are busily engaged In showing the good
points of their machines and numerous
sales already have, been made.
The doors of the big Auditorium were
thrown open to the public Tuesday noon
and a continuous stream of people passed
In during the afternoon and evening, more
In the evening and then In not such larga
numbers aa are expected later In the week.
The show Is being given by the automobile
dealers of Omaha, with one dealer from
Lincoln, and these are Interested more In
bringing In buyers and dealers from the
state and Iowa than In drawing large
crowds, although a good entertainment la
provided for visitors.
The moving pictures of the Vanderbl't
cup races are thrilling. As the huge ma
chines whirl the corners In the most ex
citing race exclamations are heard from all
sldrs lest the driver and the mechanician
should be tossed to some neighboring corn
field or ag:tlnst one of the numerous tele
graph posts which line the way. The slid
ing of the cars Is vivid, and the wonder ex
pressed by all Is that all the participants
are not killed. It is apparent to all that
the machines with the shorter base lines
take the turns better.
Some Ont-of-Ton-n Dealers,
Some of the out-of-town dealers who
were seen at the show were C. C. Jones of
Beatrice, Ed Mockett of Lincoln, Henog
Bros, of Harvard. Lars Gunderson of Mln
den, Otto WIederanders of Gothenburg.
P. L. Kuplinger of Orleans, Arthur Jones
of Hastings, J. Hart of the Hart Gun com
pany. All these dealers expressed their gratifica
tion at being able under the new arrange
ments to buy their season's supplies of
accessories through the Omaha houses
rather than through Chicago and New
York, as In former years, thus saving time
and express charges.
Eastern representatives at the show pro
nounced the display of accessories equal
to that at the Chicago show. Many of the
leading features of the big shows of the
east are shown. Including stripped ma
chines of various makes. The Kimball
company Is showing a big six, devoid of
all accoutrements, giving the visitor an
opportunity to see Just how the machinery
is put together. Omaha automoblllsts are
