SHOW IN HISTORY
COMES TO CLOSE
2nd of 1917 Exposition Harks
Culmination of Greatest
Week in History of In-'
dnstry in Omaha.
ALL RECORDS ABE BROKEN
Attendance Over Twice as
Large as Last Year and Sales
AK-SAR-BEN HOLDS BOARDS
When at 10:30 last night the doors
' f u: :;
ug .tiuiiwpi nuuuuimui were
drawn together to forever hide from
view the glittering array of luxurious
motor cars inside and the twelfth an
nual Omaha motor exposition became
a mere matter of history, the biggest
Week in the history of the automobile
industry in Omaha came to a close.
Never before since this baby indus
try secured a foothold on Omaha soil
have the automobile men of this city
gone through siv such days of bus
tling activity, unconfined enthusiasm
and assiduous toil. Every record was
broken, shattered and kicked along on
its way to obscurity. . '
What happened to the attendance
records, even Manager Clarke Powell
hasn't the heart to tell. Every single
day saw a much larger crowd than
any previous corresponding day and
the total attendance for the entire
week was more than twice as srreat
as the total atendance for the week
of the 1916 show.
Fondest Hopes Fulfilled.
The business done during the six
days of the show was nothing short
of wonderful. Not a dealer or sales
man had a complaint to make last
night when it was all over, every one
admitted the business he had done
more than fulfilled expectations and
most of them even went So far as to
'say it exceeded even their fondest
-And one need not merely take the
word of the auto men that the number
of sales made broke all previous rec
ords.; Omaha bank clearings last
week were the largest in the history
of tlie local clearing house and the
banker! declare this record was made
possible through .the motor car sales
made during the week.
' , Lavish With Praise.,,
Officers of" the show association
were more than gratified at the suc
cess of the exposition. "It was head
and shoulders above any show we
have ever held," declared J. T. Stew
art 2d, president of the, association.
"I neyer saw so much, enthusiasm in
my life. If rhejshow cari'be taken as
any' criterion, ii wui; db vmanas
biggest automobile year.
"Some show," exclaimed Lee Huff,
member of the board of directors.
-"Even the factory men. who have at
tending shows all over the c&untry
year after! year had to admit that the
Omaha show is a speedy eventt I've
seen more shows myself, including
the nationals, but me for Omaha.";
Clarke Powell, being manager of
t lie -show and also modest chap,
didn't delve into the superlatives. "It
wasn't such a bad show at that," said
Powell, whereupon Guy Smith im
mediately gurgled "shrinking violet,"
and Phil McShane asked "What's the
matter, aren't your arms long enough
to pat yourself on the backr-.Ak-Sar-Ben
With the exception of Wednesday,
Saturday was the biggest day of the
show. It was something of an Omaha
day as the greater part of the persons
who attended were Omahans. Last
ntg"ht was Ak-Sar-Ben night and the
merry rollickers of oW King Ak were
on the job for a little midwinter fun.
They made their presence known
when Charles Velie Gardner, one of
Samson's chief entertainers, began to
demonstrate his vocal powers for the
auto men. The Ak-Sar-Ben crew is
for Charles all the time and they
wasted no time or efforts to let the
auto men know it. It was kind of
tough on Charlie, though, he had to
eing a bunch of encores.
No sooner had the doors closed on
the show than the auto men began
to wheel their exhibition cars out of
their places to take them back fb the
garages. They toiled until long after
midnight oiling the magnificent pal
aces on wheels outside where they
started for the garages under their
own' power. And as the auto men
were removing their exhibits, a' corps
of destructive wretches began to strip
the Auditorium of the beautiful deco
rations so that by today the municipal
huiltiinff will be transformed back
from the magnificent motor palace to(

hot t4lk by bbandegee
Washington, 'March 3. The bill to
empower President Wilson to estab
lish a policy of armed neutrality de
veloped such persistent opposition in
the senate tonight that some of its
warmest supporters began to fear it
never could be passed before the ses
sion ends at noon. tomorrow.
, Virtually all the trouble came from
a small group of progressive' repub
licans, who blocked every effort to
get unanimous consent for limiting de
bate or setting a time for a vote.
Democratic leaders -appealed to the
republicans to aid them in swinging
the little group into liife, pleading that
in the present crisis failure of the bill
would mean national disgrace.'
' Grow More Alarmed.
For the most part the republlcacn
leaders, showed a willingness to co
operate As the debate proceeded,
however, without evidence of a break
in the opposition, the administration
senators grew more and more dubious
about the prospect.
The embarrassment of-the-democrats
was increased by a dramatic
speech by Senator Stone, chairman
of the foreign relations committee,
opposing the bill as a war measure.
That, however, was, the only evidence
ot detection in the democratic ranks.
Un behalf of the administration
senators, Senator Simmons conferred
with Senator Brandage of the regular
republicans and Senator Kenyon, rep
resenting the progressive republicans,
both of whom have supported the bill,
urging them to intercede with Sena
tors La Follette, Norris, Gronna and
Cummins, the four progressive repub
licans who refused any proposal to
Norris to Kill It If He Can.
. While the negotiations were pro
ceeding several senators sought to in
duce friends of the bill bp refrain from
discussing it in order to force the four
progressive republican to take the
floor. None of them had yet spoken,
at length. "
They would not admit that they in
tended to filibuster, but they had given
notice of an intention to discuss the
measure fully and that was interpreted
they were reserving themselves tor a
final effort to talk the bill to death.
Senator Norris had openly declared
he "would kill the bill if he could."
: Status of Ships. ; :
Senator Stone told the senate today
that he had heard that navy experts
had advised a plan for protection of
American ships whereby they would
be equipped with small submarine
chasing boats,, to be lowered in the
danger zone to scout for hostile craft
and attack them. '
"With this program earned out,
said Senator Stone, "a question arises
as to what would be thV status, of
merchant ships so protectedV'
Senator Hughes suggested it was
hardly a proper subject to be dis
cussed so soon after the senate had
passed a bill with stringent penalties
to prevent discussion of suVh secrets.
Senator Stone retorted he had not
said the plan had been adopted, but
that it had been advised and consid
Senator Stone theft offered his
amendment to prevent piotection and
armament of munitions ships. The
course the president has pursued with
Mexico and during the European war
were pointed to by Senator Stone as
proof of his desire to keep the nation
out of war.
"Despite the clamor, the intrigue.
the subterfuges," he said, "to entrap
him into at, act of war against a Euro
pean power he has stood firm as a
rock. I would therefore rather trust
him than all- the official weaklings
about him, vho daily fly their kites to
see which way the wind blows.
"If I thought this question here to
day were one only of fafth and trust
in him, l would nott Hesitate.
But this is the first time the presi
dent and I have tio been able to
reconcile our differences. I believe
the bill to lie not only violative of the
constitution, but destructive of one of
the most important powers vested in
congress the war making power and
that its passage would set a precedent
fraught with peril to our form of gov
ernment. The power to be graated is
too broad, too sweeping. There is no
limit whatsoever placed on other in
strumentalities and methods," 1
Calls It War. ,, ,
Reciting the possible exercise of
powers under the bill, Senator Stone
said it' would authorize the president
to equip ships and "drive the German
submarines from commercial paths of
the seas. . - -
"No J doubt," he continued; "that
would be a proper thing to do, but it
would be war. It would not be an act
of war but the very essence of war, in

SAYS U. S. NOT NEUTBAL
Berlin, March i (Wireless to Say
ville). The following was given out
today by the Overseas News Agency
(the official German news bureau) : '
.''Foreign. Secretary Zimmerman
was asked by s staff member of the
Overseas News Agency about the
English report tint "a German plot
had been revealed to get Mexico to'
declare war against the United States
and to secure Japan's aid against the
United States, Secretary Zimmerman
answered: , .
t " 'You understand thr.t it is impos
sible for me to disc-as the facta of
this "revealed plot" just .. this mo
ment and under these circumstances.
I therefore may be allowed to limit
my answer to what ii said in the
English reports, which certainly are
not insoired bv avmnathv with Ger '
m-ny. The English report expressly
states that Germany expected and
wished to remain on terms of friend
ship with the United States, but that
we had prepared measures of defense
in case the United States declared war
against Germany. I fail to see how
such a "plot is inspired by unfriend
liness on our part It would mean
nothing but that we would use means
universally admitted in war in case
the United States declared war.
'"The most important part of the
alleged plot is Its condition and form.
The whole "plot" falls flat to the
ground in case the United States
does not declars war against us. And
if we really, as the report alleged,
considered tne possibility of hostile
sets of the United States sgainst us,
men we reauy naa reasons to oo so.
Cites Alleged Parallel .
' "'Ail Argentine newspaper s short
time ago' really "revealed s plot" when
it told that the United States last year
suggested , to- other American re
publics common action agair.st Ger
many and its Vliea. This, "plot! tp-f

stated that Americans .from the be
ginning. of the war really participated
in it by putting the immense resources
of; the United States st the, entente's
disposal Snd that Americans had not
declared, war only because: they felt
sure that assistance by friendly neu
trality would be during that time much
more efficient for the entente than di
rect participation in the war.) Whether
this American newspaper : . man re-
lorted the facts exactly we were at a
oss to judge in sufficient. fashion since
we were more or less completely cut
oif from communication -with the
United, States, i '
' But there were ether facts which
seemed to confirm this and similar 'as
surances. ,. . Everybody i knows ''these
facts and I need not repeat them. The
entente propaganda services have suf
ficiently heralded all these pro-en
tente demonstrations in the United
States. And if you link these demon
strations with the actual attitude of
the United States, theft it is obvious
tt.at it was r.ot frivolous on our part
to consider what defensive measures
we should take in case we were at
tacked by the United States. "
