1 Why the Franklin is the most
comfortable and the most reliable
of all automobiles.
' '.' The closest possible examination of the leading water-cooled
automobiles shows them to be practically alike in all important
features. With their semi-elliptic springs and steel chassis frames
', they, all ride about the same. You can get but little more com
fort with one than another.
The Franklin is different. It is really comfortable. With its
four full-elliptic springs and laminated-wood chassis frame, it is
the most comfortable automobile in the world. And being com
fortable also means that the Franklin lasts indefinitely it does
, $ot rack and strain itself.
.Other automobiles are all about the same on tires usually
unreliable. Their tires are too small and too weak. Here
again the Franklin is different. We practically eliminate tire
trouble. The solution of the vexed problem is in providing
tires large and strong enough for the service required. The
Franklin is light and flexible. It is easy on any tires, and with
our 1910 tire equipment tire troubles are not a factor.
. Being mechanically reliable, as shown by winning severe
reliability and endurance contests, and having reliable tires, the
Franklin is the most reliable automobile you can buy.

Dc Rouen Drawing
Two European Giant Are Likely to
Have a Great Crowd at
Each man weighing In his normal notch
of one ton even, Duke Raoul de Rouen of
Cay Pares and Stanlnlau Zbyszko, premier
of the Poles, will trip lightly Into Omaha
In a day or so for their little engagement
at the Auditorium Friday night.
And when these celebrities arrive they
will find a large concourse of the populace
on hand to greet them, for Mlnager (1(1
lun avers that tickets to the big wrest e
are going like buckwheat cakes In a min
They are having a great time over at the
Auditorium hooking onto that cognomen of
the Pole, tho Scilllnn or whatever the
smaller of these two giants Is.
"How do you pronounce that' fellow's
name?" demanded a man at the window
who had Just bought four ring seat a
"Sneeze and scratch your foot on the
floor," promptly replied the keen-witted
little woman Inside the box office.
Neither de Rouen nor Zbyssko Is the
finished wrestler that the most skilled
Americans are, but they are both capable
of furnishing a lot of Interest on the mat.
True, de Rouen' previous engagement In
Omaha once with Jeaa Weatergaard and
once with Mahmout were unfavorable to
blm, made him unpopular, but nevertheless
he Is the biggest drawing card, admittedly
so, that the wrestling promoter has
brought to this country tn many years. His
methods of wrestling, which Is to bruise
his opponent all he can, sets the specta
tors wild with excitement. Hiss him If you
will, but the next time he comes to town
you are there In the best seat you can get.
Now, no matter what the conditions of
the match may. be, any time that a
monster of de Rouen' proportions he
weighs about 260 goes to roughing Jt, he's
going to make the other fellow mad and
that's going to make things good for the
crowd. 1 '
Zbyszko has not yet been to Omaha. He
ia, as a matter of fact, a better wrestler
than de Rouen, but he weighs a little under
the Frenchman, although Is said to be
much stronger. He looke Mke a Hercules.

The most delicate women, knowing

If not killed outright, very much as the
Spanish women like to see a bull fight.
Georgetown university has already given
two lives to foot ball and I have seen
broken bonea, dislocated Joints and bruised
bodies carried from fhe gridiron. The blood
shed has been altogether out of proportion
to the athletic benefits."

ROYALTY FOR ALASKA COAL
Seattle Capitalist Proposes to Pay
Fifty Cents a Ton for Fuel.
COMES ON EVE OF BIO INGUTRY
Another Proposition for Rental of
Lands nelna; Considered
Bnlld Railway Line from
WASHINGTON. Jan. 26. A new and
somewhat sensational factor appeared
yesterday to add Intensity to the al
ready sufficiently excited situation over
the Alaska coal lands, on the eve of the
beginning of the Dalllnger-Pinchot In
vestigation. John E. Ballalne of Seattle,
said to be the largest Individual property
owner In Alaska, made a proposition In
writing to the senate committee on terri
tories, of which Senator Beverldge of In
diana la chairman, offering to the gov
ernment a royalty of 50 cents a ton on
coal mined for the lease of 5.000 acres of
some of the choicest coal lands in Alaska,
In the Katalla and Matanuska districts.
Such a tonnage royalty would net to the
government, Mr. Ballalne claims, amounts
as high as $2,000,000 per 100 acres.
This proposal contemplates a radical de
parture from past practice In the govern
ment's disposal of the Alaska coal lands,
and It comes avowedly to do battle with
another proposition, embodied in a bill
which has been prepared, but not Intro
duced, designed to permit the sale or lease
of such land 110 per acre.
It I said that the general feature of
the plan have the approval of officials
high In the administration and of Influ
ential members of both houses of con
gress. Including some of the prominent In
surgent republicans and Delegate Wicker
sham of Alaska.
Bond of Million.
Mr. Ballalne In ha letter to Senator
Beverldge offers to enter Into a bond of
11.000,000 with the government for the per
formance of his part of the agreement,
which he propose and ho makes the charge
that "other Interests" have now at work
in Washington a lobby "headed by a for
mer United States senator" in support
of the bill referred to above, under whose
provisions, he declares, the government
would extend an unconditional guarantee
to a railroad or railroads which these In
terests purpose to build In Alaska and
would virtually donate to them at $10 per
acre, one or more tracts of 6,000 acres each
to be selected by them. '
Mr. Ballalne asks congress to. authorize
the hosd of the dipartm,nt to be designated
In the legislation- to enter Into a lease
with a coal company to be organized by
him for 5,000 acres of Matanuska coal land,
under all the provisions for regulation and
against monopolistic control of price a
stipulated In the bill recently Introduced
by Senator Nelson In conformity with the
recommendations of Secretary Bellinger's
annual report. This coal company would
pay the United States and Alaska a roy
alty of 50 cents a ton for the coal as
Vein Twenty Feet Thlcjg.
Mr. Ballalne statec that veins averaging
a total thickness' of twenty feet would
yield according to standard measurements,
a total of over 500,000,000 ton from the
6,000 acres, making a royalty of 1250,000,000
for this Bmall area.
Mr. Ballalne alleges that the Canadian
Interest, whieWtiWned a majority of the
PR it I ally completed road from Seward, re
cently put It'-tWough a foreclosure reor
ganization on a plan that wiped out all
American Investments In the road, while
protecting all -Cana(,'n Investments In It
He further chnrges that the lobby, which
he describes as asking for an outright guar
antee of interest on bonds and the donation
of 5,000 acres of coal land as a virtual gift,
is working In the Interest of these Cana
dians, but In vouJ,,nctlon with a grouo of
American capitalists, who are, he declares,
attempting by the sime bill to get control
of the Katalla coal In another part of
Mr. Ballnlne tonight quoted the United
States geological survey as stating In one
of Its recent reports that there are 16.0 0,
000,000 tons of 'coal In sight In the known
coal areas of Alaska, and probably as much
a (;a In In regions as yet unexplored, and he
pointed out that tho leasing of these areas
on a royalty basis, such ns he was offer
ing for an area of only 5,000 acres, would
ultimately bring the government In over
