IN SHIPMENT TO
AMY STORE HERE
Cans of Bacon Intended for
Soldiers Imperfectly Sealed;
May Be Work of Pro
German. Three carloads of bacon, part of .a
government order shipped from the
Cudahy packing plant in Sioux City,
la., to the quartermasters department
in Omaha, has been found to contain
imperfectly sealed cans and has been
sent to the local Cudahy plant where
the shipment is being inspected and
all defective cans reseated.
About 4 per cent of the cans in the
shipment ace "leakers."
The cans have not been plugged by
pro-German agents as was first re
ported, but it is possible that they
were imperfectly sealed deliberately
by pro-German employes in the Sioux
Uty plant M. R. Marphy, manager
of the Omaha plant, has received
word that an employe in the canning
department of the Sioux City plant
lost his job about 10 minutes after
the authorities heard that the ship
ment was not as it should be.
Harry Lite, foreman of the Cudahy
ham house, under whose direction the
shipment is being readjusted, said that
the "leakers" might have been caused
by inefficient workmen, but the work
of sealing some of the cans was so
poorly done that it seems almost cer
tain that whoever sealed them did not
desire to do his work' well.

Tax Complaints Are Not
. Attributed to the War
"Complaints against the increasing
tax rates in Omaha can not be attrib
uted to war conditions," said C. C.
Shimer, secretary of Home Builders.
"While men of large property hold
ings and incomes are paying increased
taxes on account of the war, we hear
very little complaint from them. In
fact everybody seems to be willing to
help Uncle Sain win the war.
"The real basis of complaints," con
tinued Mr. Shinier, "is the gradual in
crease of city levies the last few years,
the reasons for which had no refer
ence to conditions precipitated by
war. For instance, the assessor's rec
ords shows that the city levies for
1915 amounted to nearly 58 mills and
in 1916 to nearly 76 mills.

BIG MOTOR SHOW
Omaha Springs Into High Rank
as Exhibition City, and Bus
iness Interests Highly
The hoods are closed, motors shut
off and the thirteenth annual Omaha
Automobile Show has passed into his
tory. Its exit at 10:30 o'clock last
night is with the reputation justly
earned of being the biggest and best
ever staged in Omaha. As a conse
quence of this show, Omaha takes its
place with New York and Chicago
as being one of the three big show
cities of the United States.
Factory representatives prepared
to return as soon as possible as the
Omaha show was the last big one on
the circuit. Local distributors, with
the worrv of the show over, have
only to fill orders received from visi
tors and local dealers, who contracted
for cars during the week.
Records Are Broken.
Attendance records were shattered.
A show that started in pessimism
ended in optimism when results were.
seen after the opening day. .Never
has the enthusiasm been, shown over
a display of this kind as was evinced
by the people ot umana ana sur
Scarcely a distributor displaying
cars at the show has vacant territory
in which he has now to get agents
to handle his cars. Contracts for cars
sold to individuals exceeded the fond
est expectations of dealers. All went
to their homes in the best of spirits.
Second to None.
The show was accorded second po
sition to none and on a par with the
New York show accredited as being
the best it the world by representa
tives of the automobile concerns who
have exhibited at alt of the shows
this year. The decorations in the
Auditorium were admitted the most
beautiful seen this year.
A large share of the credit tor the
success of the show must be accord
ed to Manager Clarke Powell, who
for several months past has devoted
all of his time to assuring the success
of the big exposition. The loyalty
with which the people responded
shows their interest in any enterprise
that may effect the winning of the
war and economic reasons entered
largely into the purchase of ft large,
number of passenger ears and trucks.
