"Oakland Automobile Company, Omaha,
Neb. Gentlemen: Of course you all know
t am an enthusiast over the Oakland, and
nn exptrlence I had east might make me
more bo. As you know I am driving an
Oakland forty, 1910, model, and you also
know I have driven It In excess of 10,000
miles, with practically no expense for re
pairs, and when I had Mr. Bert Eastman
at Clarinda, la., overhaul my enflne this
winter he accompanied his bill; which was
small, with the statement that the engine
was In excellent condition and only needed
to be cleaned.
I left Ucd Oak, la., at 9 o'clock p. m.
April 29, 1910, accompanied by Ir. R. V.
Morris and Chauncey Powers of Red Oak.
We had the machine standing on the floor
in the Atlantic auto garage. Council Bluffs,
at 11:30 p. m., driving via Glenwood. Ttie
distance is by auto road just about sixty
miles, and we made the run with exactly
three gallons of gasoline. These facta can
be verified by employes of the North auto
garage at Red Oak, as well as those of the
Atlantic garage In Council Bluffs., Ia. Ke
Bpectfully, A. R. KROH.

Lee Huff said: "The American Sheet and
Tlnplate company Is authority for the
statement that the Buick, Motor company's
contract on cold rolled steel Is the largest
single contract on cold rolled steel and
shafting ever placed in the United States.
"The Buick contract specifies delivery
during 1910 of 10,000 tons of cold rolled
steel and the American company says this
exceeda the next largest by 3,000 tons.
"This in Itself should be sufficient evi
dence as to the large scale on which the
Buick operations are conducted at the great
Flint plants, but other figures are equally
Interesting as showing the vast quantity
of raw material required by the Buick com
pany. "The contract on aheet steel, which is
used for fenders, hoods, drip aprons, etc,
will amount to 7,600 tons for 1911 and 1,300
tons of steel forglnga are used per month."
COMBINE OF AUTO CONCERNS
Promoters of the Deal Steadily Scoop
Inn In (he Factories.
New York advices repeat with posttlve
ness the rapid development of the merger
of automobile manufacturing companies
Into a corporation financed by the banking
houses of J. P. Morgan & Co.
While this was expected some time ago,
when the Morgan Interests organised the
General Motors company, which this year
will turn out 60.000 cars, the announcement
Is made that the United State Motor Car
company of New Jersey had purchased
the majority of the stock of the Columbia
Motor Car company made It evident to
Wall atreet that J. P. Morgan and his asso
ciates soon would control the automobile
industry of the country, which has become
one of its greatest industrial features.
Only recently Mr. Morgan secured control
of the E. M. F. company of Detroit, one
of the largest automobile plants In the mid
The Studebaker company had a third In
terest In the concern the Everelt-Metsger-Flanders
Automobile company and the
Morgan banking firm, acting for the
Studebaker company, paid $4,800,000 for the
other two-thirds of the stock.
This stock was turned over to the Stude
baker company, but the Morgan Interests
are said to control the latter company.
In addition to this the United States
Motor company will Issue certificates,
countersigned by the Central Trust com
pany, giving holdera of Columbia Motor
Car company stock their share of revenue,
under the Selden license.
The General Motors company, which Is
controlled by the Morgan Interests, has a
capital of $20,000,000. This corporation Is
the largest and the most aggressive auto
mobile concern of absorbing and expansive
tendencies In the country. Its production
this year will amount to $00,000,000. It has
acquired the following well-known com
panies: Buick Motor company, Cadillac
Motor Car company, Olds Motor works,
Oakland Motor Car company, Marquette
company, Reliance Motor Truck company,
Rapid Motor Vehicle company. Western

W. L. Huffman said: "One of the cars
to win a perfect score In the recent 175
mile endurance run of the Savannah (La.)
Automobile club was the Hupmoblle. The
run was over roads of wretched condition
between Savannah and Jacksonville, Fla.,
occupying two days. The Hupmoblle was
In competition with ears of much greater
weight and horsepower.
"Word has been received of a rather re
markable record made In Minnesota with
a Hupmoblle. J. B. Keller drove a Hup
moblle from Minneapolis to Breckenrldge.
The distance of 260 miles was made in
twelve hours and the gasoline oonsumed
was only ten gallons an average of
twenty-five miles per gallon over rough and

NOTED AUTO THIEF CAPTURED
Woman's Clerer Swindle Successfully
Worked All Over Country.
"A pretty young woman, with dark eyes
and winning smile" is the pen picture given
of a professional automobile thief, who
made off with two cars In New York City
this month. In her operations, which have
extended from San Francisco to New York,
she waa assisted by a young man, sup
posed to be the woman's husband, who
managed to elude the police. Two New
York victims are placed to her credit.
At the Fairmont hotel In San Francisco
she registered as Mrs. Ortega, Mr. Ortega
being along. They visited a dealer and
pretended that they wanted to buy a
$5,000 car. A demonstrator waa sent along
with them and he was left a few hours'
later In the same fix that Mr. Homan
found himself last Thursday afternoon.
They registered at the Auditorium Annex
In Chicago as "Mr. and Mrs. N. J. Spald
ing," and worked the game with neatness
and dispatch. Denver entertained the
couple next and the Brown Palace had the
honor of their patronage. From Denver
they apparently came straight to New
York, since the date of the Denver theft
and the date of Burgess' loss were only a
few days apart.
What bothers the New York detectives
most of all Is how the pair got away with
the automobiles. A big touring car la not
like a necklace or a watch. You can't put
It In your pocket. It has prominent mark
ings, peculiar Individuality and usually It
is as easily traced as an express train.
According to tlte police the couple have
been able to sell as well as steal. One of
the cars stolen In the west was sold at
