STUDEBAKER MEN AT DINNER
Vice President Benson Talks to Rep
resentatives, Calling Them Mer
chants Instead of Dealers.
SEES A GOOD SEASON AHEAD
Acting as host to the scores of Studc
baker representatives here for the Auto
mobile show, K R. Benson, vice presi
dent. In charge of the sales of the Stude
baker corporation, yesterday presided at
a luncheon at the Paxton hotel. The
gathering was entirely Informal, the only
talk of any length being by Mr. Benson,
in which he outlined. In optimistic vein,
the 1915 prospects In the automobile field.
Several other officers of the company
were present as a reminder that the men
who represent the company throughout
America are1 an Integral part of the Or
ganizatlon The Studebakcr men who gathered
here to see the show and get in touch
with the executive officers were bubbling
over with enthusiasm, both for the shovy
Itself and for the showing made by the
Studcbakcr " corporation. The ere was
about the fkudebaker space , gave them
opportunities to learn :at TlrsT band "of
the cordial reception accorded Studebaker
1915 models .by the buying public , in
Omaha and surrounding territory. Refer
ences were made at the luncheon to this
Interest aa Indicative of the Interest In
Studcbakcr cars . everywhere. r.
Not Dealers, but Merchants.
In the course of his talk, Mr. Benson
brought out one point which met with
such hearty approval that It will not only
Influence the business future pf too men
who handle Studebaker machines, but In
time the entire retail branch of the auto,
mobile business. The point was that the
time had come for the men who sell cars
call themselves merchants.
"It seems to me that the time has come
to make a dignified stand." said Mr.
'Benson. "Her before roe are ..men who
have Investments of thousands of dol
lars In cars. Tour credit Is above r&
proach, both with, the Htudebakor cor
poration end the banks in your own
communities. "Why should you continue
to call yourselves dealers, when In real
ity you are as much merchants as any
owner of a drygoodrf store or clothing
store In your city? Certainly the unit
of sale la a more dignified sum. A man
who sells a machine for 1.000 or $1,500, is
certainly as much a merchant as a man
who sell cotton goods at 13 to 13 cents
Hnslnesa Well Established.
"The automobile business has passed
through necessary stages of develpment
and now Is so well established, .that the
men who are the channels of distribu
tion throughout the country are entitled
to that standing in the business world
to which their Integrity, acumen, and
volume of business entitle them. I. for
one feel that you gentlemen are met
chants, and as such you deserve to be
Mr. Benson referred briefly to both
the New York and Chicago shows, held
during January. In both cities the in
terest in 1915 models was evidenced by
the substantial sales of Studebaker cars
during the shows and the days immed
iately following. Being in touch with
i,the entire situation. Mr. Benson con
gratulated the Studebaker . merchants
who were his guests upon the promis
ing outlook for sales.

IMPLEMENT JEN FOR WAR
Concentrate Forces and Will Fight
Railroads' Flan to Abolish in
M'VANN . TO LEAD IN BATTLE
The National Implement and Vehicle
association has appointed B. J. McVann
of Omaha as Its attorney to fight the
railroads on their proposed plan to aban
don the stoppage In transit privilege on
loads of Implements. The case Is one in
which implement men all over the United
States have been greatly interested eve
since the railroads canceled the long
standing rule of allowing oars ' to be
stopped to unload part of their freight
along the line beforo reaching final des
tination. The old custom always mado It possi
ble for the small Implement dealer to get
part of a carload of Implements, and have
them come on a full car destined to deal
erg farther on.
. Implement Dealers Protest.
The ' railroads formerly charged $5 a
car for granting this privilege of stop
page. Some time ago they canceled the
privilege altogether and decided to bill
cars through, allowing no unloading until
final destination Is reached. Implement
associations all over the country, In
cluding the Mid-AVest Implement Dealers'
association, which met In Omaha this
Winter, made vigorous protests against
this new rule. They got the Interstate
Commerce commission to auttpend the
new rule of the railroads. The suspension
holds until June 1.
In the meantime, the Interstate Com
merce commission Is preparing to hear
the case In Chicago April 30. At that
time Mr. MoVann will appear before the
special examiner to argue the cane In be
half of the Implement men, representing
directly the National Implement and Ve
hicle association. This association Is com
posed of the leading implement firms of
the country, besides many of the leading
manufacturing concerns furnishing tip
piles for the manufacture of implements.
The latter ere such as the steel and Iron
mills and the hardwood lumber concerns.
What the Itole Means.
Mr. McVann will go to Chicago the first
of next week to confer with the officers
of the national association with regard to
arranging for the testimony and other de
tails preparatory to the hearing.
Under the old rule the railroads not
only charged $5 per car for stopping and
unloading part of a car, but they charged
the regular rate on the full carload to
the destination. This, the defenders of
the old rule maintain, was sufficient to
compensate them for their trouble.
If the arbitrary rule of the roads Is not
permanently suspended. It la asserted It
will mean that it will coat the small
dealers a great deal more for freight, as
they would very 'often be compelled to
pay local freight on small shipments not
large enough for carload lota As It was
In the past they were able to get the
benefit of a carload rate, though their
particular consignment was not a carload
Young Man Fails
In Pit Before Car
Randolph Hllbert, ?1H North Twenty-
seventh street, nearly lost Ms life under
the wheels of a street car last night at
Thirtieth and Spauldlrur. when he fell In
an epileptic fit In front of an approach

he was trying to kill himself, snatched
him to safety In the nick of time. He
was later able to go borne, alter' Police
Surgeon Tamlslca had attended him.

, Kidney and Bladder weakness result
from urlo acid, says a noted authority.
The kidneys filter this acid from the
blood and pass it on to the bladder, where
it often remains to Irritate and Inflame,
causing a burning, scalding sensation, or
sotting up an Irritation at the nook of
the bladder, obliging you to seek relief
two or three times during the night.
The sufferer is in constant dread, the
water passes sometimes with a scalding
sensation and Is very profuse; again,
there Is difficulty In avoiding It.
Bladder weakness, most folks call It,
because they can't control urination.
While It Is extremely annoying and some
times very painful, this Is really one of
the most simple ailments to overcome.
Get about four ounces of Jad Baits
from your pharmacist and take a table
spoonful in a glass of water before
breakfast, continue this for two or three
days. This will neutralize the acids In
the urine so It no longer is a source of
Irritation to the bladder and urinary or
gans which then act normally again.
Jad Baits Is inexpensive, harmless,
und Is made from the acid of grapes and
lemon Juice, combined with lithla, and
Is used by thousands of folks who are
subject to urinary disorders caused by
urlo acid Irritation. Jad Balls la splen
