BABC0X SAYS THE AUTO
BUSINESS IS INCREASING
Edward S. Babcox, advertising man
ager of the Firestone Tire and Rubber
company of Akron, O., Is In Omaha mak
ing an inspection of the local branch.
Mr. Babcox, reports that the Firestone
tire business has Increased 78 per cent
over the business of last year, and antid
pates that before the end of the current
year a larger Increase will be registered.
"In order to meet the demands for our
product," declared Mr. Babcox, "it has
been necessary to add 95,000 square feet
of floor space to our enormous factory.
These new additions are being con
structed as rapidly as possible, and even
li pw we fear that the additions will be
Insufficient and thus necessitate mora
construction next year.
Thla, I think, will clearly show that
the automobile business Is not deteriorat
ing, as some persons would have us be
lieve. Ever since our organisation we
have been making additions and since the
erection of the new plant in 1910 the ad
ditions have been 'more frequent and
more extensive than ever,"

Fontenolle hotel now being built In
Omaha, Is In the city with William
Rafferty, vice president and member of
the board of directors of the Interstate
Hotel company. They are looking over
the stato of progress In the construction
of the new hotel building at Eighteenth
and Douglas, where Burbank Is to open
the Fontenelle as soon as the building is
A meeting of the Douglas Hotol company
the local company erecting the building,
Is scheduled for this " morning. Mr.
Burbank and Mr. Rafferty will attend
the meeting. An extension of time In
completing the building has been asked
for by Selden-Breck Construction com
pany. It Is understood that the Douglas
Hotel company favors granting the ex
tension of time, but that Mr. Burbank ts
for pushing the building to completion
so that ho may open the Fontenelle hotel
on scheduled time.
Mr. Burbank says several contracts will
be consummated while he Is In the city,
and that much detail will be disposed of
with the architoct and contractor. He
says he has been very busy assembling
the data with regard to furnishing the
S30 rooms the now hotel Is to have, as
well as working with designers on special
furniture for the lobby, dining room,
tarlors, etc. Orders for all these things
are to be closed within a fortnight.
"The organization of tho staff of the
hotel Is largely selected as to heads of
departments," eays Mr. Burbank. "As
sociated with me In the management will
be my brother, Abraham Burbank, who
has just relinquished the management ot
the Hotel Broezcl in Buffalo to give his
wholo time with me. I am much grati

Rook Island Has
Said to Be Hummer
Passenger engine No. 999 of the Rock
Island has Just come out of the American
Locomotive company shops and gone Into
service. It 18 one of the fastest railroad
machines In the country and is capable
of attaining and maintaining a speed of
sixty miles per hour, carrying a heavy
all-steel train of passenger equipment
The new No. 999 on the Rock Island 1b
some engine. It has a total weight of
833,000 pounds, with cylinders 28x28; boiler
pressure, 1S5 pounds; equivalent heating
surface, 5,533 square feet; grate area, C2.7
square feet, and traction power, 60,000
In 1893 the New York Central had a
No. 999 engine, and It was the marvel of
that time. In fact, It was looked upon as
the best and most powerful passenger lo
comotive In the world. It was exhibited
at the Chicago exposition as one of the
wonders of the age. However, compared
with the No. 999 of tho Rock Wand it
waa a pigmy. While It was the biggest
passenger engine In existence, its total
weight was but 124,000 pounds. Its eylln
dera were 19x24; Its bolter pressure, 190
pounds; equivalent heating surface, 1,908
square feet; grate area, 30.7, and tractive
power, 16,270 pounda In other words, It
was not half as large or powerful as tho
Rock Island machine of today.

TARIFF IS CAUSE OF THE LOSS
Larsst Importations Are from Ger

In spite of the fact that the Imports
cleared through the customs office here
show a material Increase for the first
half of 19U, over the corresponding period
last year, the revenues of the office have
decreased about SO per cent, due to the
operation of the new democratic tariff
In the first six months of the present
year, merchandise valued at US2,000 waa
cleared through the port of Omaha, as
compared with $374,000 for the correspond
ing period last year. June of 1914 showed
the greatest Increase, the Imports being
HC9.000 as compored with $86,000 for June,
1913. Only about half of the merchandise
cleared through the customs ottloo here

over $1,009 on the alleyway from Sixteenth

Stand Up ad De liver
An automobile tire must "stand up" and "deliver" mileage enough to
justify its first cost, or its first cost at any price is a joke.
"First cost" saving is an "ostrich way" of figuring tire economy the
only true way is to figure on the ultimate cost of your tire service.
Automobile owners learn this in time the quicker they learn it, the
quicker will they learn to buy
Business Basis Tires
That a tremendous majority of automobile owners have learned how to
buy automobile tires is proved by the fact that today "Nobby Tread" Tires
are the largest selling anti-sldd tires in the world.
"Nobby Tread" Tires do two things they give more mileage and
they prevent skidding.
