Nbrris Brown Relates Some
History to the Barristers'
HAD STORMY PROGRESS
The stormy voyage the income tax
amendment had in congress before it
finally became a part of the federal
constitution was reviewed at noon by
ex-Senator Norris Brown in a brief
talk to the Barristers' club at the
Commercial club rooms.
He showed what ridiculous objec
tions came up, especially from those
who for one reason or another, did
not want the amendment passed. The
senator said when he could not get
the help he wanted to start the
amendment on its way he went to
Senator Aldrich. Senator Aldrich
told him it would not be a bad idea,
hut he said the senate was too busy
-with currency legislation. He tried to
put Senator Brown off to the next
session. "Well, when Senator Aldrich
puts you off," he said, "that is the end
"So I went to see the president of
the United States. I had prepared
a brief and had the material pretty
well in hand. President Taft finally
consented to help me. The next day
he sent a special message to the sen
ate urging the passage of such an
amendment, The senate took notice
then, and it is surprising how much
time those committees had after that
to work on the matter." .

every one of these types can be seen
at the Omaha show. These sixteen
types were designated to keep the
nomenclature of automobile types
from becoming unduly numerous.
Starting with the regular style of
touring car for . five or seven passen
gers, the list includes the convertible
touring car, salon touring ear, road
ster, eoupelet, coupe, convertible
coupe, clover-leaf sedan, open sedan,
limousine; open limousine, berline,
brougham and landaulet Some of
the cars exhibited may vary some-
what from the rigid standards, but
they will fall under the general clas
sification. , Streamline and atraight
line body designs are the most fa
vored, although some manufacturers
seem to have reached a more or less
happy and successfu compromise.
Color combinations are more strik
ing than ever before. While the
standard colon of black, blue and
green stilt dominate, there Is a new
freedom of color design and applica
tion that adds to the individual ap
pearance of the 1917 car. New mod
els are generally roomier, upholstery
deeper snd interiors more refined if
not so ornate. ' :
The truck display this year will
be even more comprehensive than a
year ago. A special annex for the
commercial vehicles has been built on
Fourteenth . street so that more
trucks can be exhibited and to better
advantage. ' '

The Menado, also owned by the

on its way to the United States from
Rotterdam to get grain. Apparently
most of these vessels were in Kirk
wall or Falmouth during the early
days of the period of .Germany's un
restricted submarine warfare.
For more than a year all shies flv-
