COAL CARS OF U. P.
WILL NOT BE SENT
TO OTHER LINES
Measure Taken to Prevent Fur
ther Fuel Shortage in Cities
and Towns Along En
The Union Pacific has applied a
rule that is intended to prevent any
further coal shortage in cities, towns
and territory tributary to its main
and branch lines. In short, this rule
provided that hereafter, and until fur
ther notice, no company car will be
loaded with coal to be shipped off
Heretofore Union Pacific cars laid
in at the coal mines in Colorado,
Wyoming, Utah and Idahb have been
loaded for any point from whence an
order, came. The result has been
that western coal has been shipped
north, sotfth, east and west. Conse
quently much of the territory along
the line of road has felt the effects
of a fuel shortage.
The Union Pacific, believing that
home needs should be given special
attention, has applied the rule with
reference to company cars, with the
result that hereafter when the cars
art loaded none of them will go east
of the Missouri river.
Other Roads Not Affected.
However, foreign, or cars of other
roads, will nt be affected by the
order. Cars of other roads, if sent
to the western mines, will be loaded
and sent to such destinations as con
signors and consignees may agree
While the Union Pacific order with
reference to coal shipments conies
late in the season, it is asserted that
it will have an important bearing
upon solving the coal problem for
next winter. It will enable dealers in
cities and towns along the line of
the Union Pacific to store their stocks
early and prevent a shortage later
in the season.
All the mines along the line of the
Union Pacific are being worked to
capacity, and already considerable
quantities of the coals are going into
storage for next winter. For its own
use, aloajt the main line and along
most of the branches, the company
has begun to fill its bunkers and
storehouses in anticipation of im
mense commercial orders that are

able when manifested. The ydung
men who piisn their way forward in
public convej'ances retain without
compunction the seatts for which
they have struggled.
Here again we have the philosophy
of the tired business man: "I got
there first; we are all equals in the
United States and I want to read my
newspaper." The apotheosis of na
turalness, and in self-defense we all
more or less subscribe to it; but after
all, it is natural for pigs to struggle
for places, at a trough. Well may we
ask ourselves if it Is impossible to
safeguard independence, initiative and
equality except at the cost of all the
social graces that prevailed when so

VC . ' Hi
J. It. HANSEN.
One of the newcomers on Automo
bile row, J. II. Hansen, vice president
of the Jones-IIansen Cadillac com
pany, is enthusiastic to the extreme
regarding the preparations being
made by automobile dealers for their
annual automobile show.
Both Mr. Hansen and A. H.Jones
of Hastings are veteran automobile
men, and comment coming from them
regarding the Omaha situation has
the added weight of years of experi
ence and a review of a countless num
ber of automobile shows.
Both Mr. Hansen and Mr. Jones
are very well pleased with the out
look for automobile sales during 1918
and are only apprehensive regarding
the freight car situation. They seem
to feet that all automobile men in this
section will do an enormous business
and that the freight car situation will
be the most serious handicap.
NEW FORD TRVCK
IS EXHIBITED AT

trucks has been received in Omaha
by the McCaffrey Motor company
and will be on display at the McCaf
frey company's new location at Fif

fully capable of carrying a capacity
load without fear of injury to engine

50,000 Hudson Super-Sixes
Each one a Guarantee of this New Series
No one really in touch with motor car values how asks con
cerning the detail specifications of the Hudson Super-Six.
In the sale of more than 20,000 cars last year, few buyers
wanted such particulars. Thousands did hot even tare to see
undef the ho6d. They offered as explanation of their seeming
disinterestedness that they were not themselves competent judges
of such matters, and that they chose the Super-Six because of
what they knew it had done in serving persons they knew.
They said they had read with interest and perhaps some skep
ticism the statments made about the ear when it was first an
nounced. They Were not sure that the Super-Six motor gave
greater power than other motors of eqiiat size arid that $hey did
not understand the Hudson patented principle which minimized
vibration and assured longer motof and car life. They explained
that they were conservative buyers, not given to buying new
things. But they had followed the performance record of the
Super-Six, they had talked with any number of Hudson Super
Six owners and they in that manner had come to feel its relia
bility. It was that which had persuaded them to choose the
Super-Six and so why should they show any more Interest in such
details than one would display in buying a watch? No one asks
concerning the construction of the main spring. What they want
to know is whether the movement is a reliable timekeeper.
So much assurance concerning the Super-Six is at hand where
ever one inquires, that we refer prospective buyers to what the
public has to say about it.
But there is a particular about the Hudson line that everyone
must want to know. A trained mind Is not needed to appreciate
the beauty and completeness of the 10 different body models in
which it is now to be had. Examine the new Hudsons from the
side of their charm of line and the completeness of their appoint
ments, and rely upon what all motordom says for the Hudson as

Fierce Nomads of
Argentina Daring Plainsmen
The Raucho, the Argentine plains
man, sprang from the Spaniard and
Indian. He was a nomad. His life
of frugality, activity and hazard fa
vored the littest and fiercest. He knew
no law save that of might. He was
independent, daring familiar with
violence, and careless of life. Had he
through a Spanish parent some Moor
ish strain, he represented in the pam
pas his ancestors who had galloped
over the plains of Arabia.
In Argentina's war of independence,
1810-1816, the gaucho played an im
portant part under General San Mar
tin and General Helgrano; in the civil
wars that followed he fought under
captains of more or less authority,
such as.Carranza, Villa and Orozco
are today, and in the tyrant Rosas,
18.10-185 J, he became the dictator over
the lives and fortunes of the higher
classes of society.
