mercial club by the Card-Adams Mo
tor company, distributors of Chandler
automobiles and Denby trucks.

to a much greater spring demand than
.had been anticipated at the beginning
of the year.
Policy of Company.
The speaker mentioned the success
of the Chandler as a fine car at a
medium price, and said that this suc
cess was due to the foresight, cour
age and permanence of the Chandler
organization. It required vision, he
said, to foretell the market for such
-a car; it required courage to adopt
. policy in accord with the vision;
and it required permanence of policy
and permanence of organization to
'get the confidence of the public and
"If any state in the union gets all
''the Chandler cars it wants, that state
will be Nebraska," Mr. Dunlap said,
: "becauce business conditions here are
good, the future . of the automobile
business is particularly bright in this
state and the company therefore
wants to put every car it can into
; Nebraska this year."
f- . Trucks in Demand.
i M. E; McKenney, from the Denby
truck factory, said his company has
1 taken large war contracts, but it has
'doubled the capacity of its plant, so
:that it enpects to be able not only
to fulfill government contracts, but
to take care in addition of the in
creased demand for commercial
i trucks. Mr., McKenney called, atten
tion to the four Denby sizes, 1,
X 3 and S-ton trucks and particular
ly to the DenbyV adaptability to

when he appeared at Massey hall here
last night, to address a prohibition
meeting under the auspices of the
Returned soldiers caused the dis
turbance by shouting various epi

they also demanded in chorus.
The first disturbance came before
Mr. Bryan's entry, when the chairman
tola the audience they were to be
honored by listening to the fraternal
delegate of the Anti-Saloon league of
America, "one of the foremost citi
zens of our ally.
The chairman refrained from men
tioning Mr. Bryan's name as. long as
he could, but when it came out at last,
it was greeted by a chorus of cat calls
and cries, we don t want him. The
chairman appealed to the audience. It
was not a good thing for the city
what they were doing, he said, and
a bad thing for the cause we repre
sent" . ..
HOOTS FROM GALLERIES.
Then Mr. Bryan came in and pan
demonium broke loose. Most of the
audience stood up, waived handker
chiefs and cheered him, but the ang
wering hoots from the gallery out'
lasted the cheers.
For five minutes Mr. Bryan tried
to make himself heard, but it was no
use. The interruption kept right on

and sang "Over There" and "We
Won't Go Home Until Morning."
Men stood uo and shook their fists
at the American, ex-secretary ot state.
Soldiers showed the service button
on their coats and shouted defiance
at those who pleaded for a hearing
for the visitor.
Enthusiastic prohibitionists who
wished to hear Mr. Bryan, hurled
across the hall counter calls of put
them out" and "where's your fair
play?" The chairman was heard to
say something about ejecting the in
terrupters. He was greeted with
cries of "who's going to do it?"
Mr. Bryan took his seat.
John H. Roberts of Montreal,
made an attempt to speak, but was

corps dressed in uniform was hoisted
on the platform.
"Boys they are fighting for freedom
at the front; they are. also fighting
for freedom of thought. Why should

pealed to the gallery.

soldiers in the gallery shouted, "Take

After the bana naa piayea anotner

Cornea By Invitation.
"I am here by invitation," said Mr.
Bryan. I come as the representative
of 25,000,000 of the American people
who have banded themselves : to
gether in various organizations for
the promotion of prohibition. I have
sDoken in one hall tonight before an
audience that gave me not only re
spectful, but enthusiastic attention.
"I nna mat less man a per ccm,
nrobiblv more nearly , less than 2
per cent of this audience refuses to
allow the rest of the audience to hear
me speak. Ordinarily those who in
terrupt a meeting are put out oecause
they refuse an overwhelming major

am not willing that force should -be
used to eject the men from the hall.
I would rather that me meeting
should break up."
"Mv oatriotism is satisfactory to tne
president of the United States. It is
satisfactory to the cabinet of the
United States. It is satisfactory to
the congress of the United States.
There is not a single person in the
United States who can say that one
drop of blood in my veins is not loyal
to my country."
Mr. Bryan told the reporters that
his daughter was married to a British
engineer officer, that one of his grand
sons was a British subject and that
another was in the Navy department
"I sav this " he added, "that you
may know that I do not have to
apologize to anyone."
Mr. Brvan announced his readiness
to stay all night in the hall and try
to talk to the people. He said he
would. have no coercion, however.
"Enough men," he added, "are be
ing injured in our fighting to make
the world safe for democracy, with
out anyone being injured to give me
a hearing." , .
The former secretary of state
spoke for quite a while on the pro
gress of prohibition to those who had
crowded down to the platform, but
it, is doubtful if many of them could
hear him owing to the noise.
His remarks were punctuated by
the gallery spelling out "L-U-S-I-

Lusitania" and singing, "Hail, Hail.

Miss Goldmark declared white
women were lifting weights of as
much as fifty pounds in Work as

"Are women used in England in

man of the commission.
"They are used in England in the
operation of street railway services,
and also as station agents and in
other work in connection with the

Goldmark said. She added that the

Doing Hard Labor.
"The majority of women at this

hard labor, such as loading scrap
iron, sorting scrap iron, wheeling

etc. The women loading scrap iron
and sorting have no protection from

large brim hats. They hand the iron
