Attorney i General Reed Says
When Owners Learn Law,
Illegal Transportation
of Liquor WillStop.
From t Staff Correspondent
Lincoln, Nov. 18. (Special)
'Those engaged in the unlawful and
illegal traffic o.' intoxicating liquors
by bringing the same into the state
in violation of the federal law and
iu defiance of the new state law
must learn as early as possible that
it is safer to drive their automo
biles into a fire or over an embank
ment than to bring liquor into the
state with such conveyance. When
owners of machines and those who
hold mortgages thereon learn
through rigid enforcement of the
law the foregoing, it will become
less difficult to enforce the prohib
itory law." ' '
This is the opinion of Atorney
General Reed in a letter to James
A. Rodman, county attorney of
Kimball county, who had asked ad
vice of the state department as to
the sale of automobiles on which
it was claimed a mortgage was held.
Mr. Reed holds as follows:
"Where the owner of personal j
property, mortgaged by him to
another person remains in posses
sion of it after giving the mortgage,
and commits acts in respect to such
property, which work a forfeiture
of it to the United States, under
the 25th seetion of the" internal
revenue act of March 2, 1867.(14 U.
S. 8tat. at large, 483), it must be
'condemned, even though the mort
gagee is not shown to have been
concerned in such acts.
"Nor can the demand of the mort
gagee be paid by the court out of
the proceeds of the property con
demned." New Telephone Rates

C. G. Powell, manager of the
Omaha' Automobile Trade associa
tion, was directed to attend a meet
ing of show managers to be held in
Cleveland, O., November 25 and 26.
The regular November meeting of
the automobile dealers has been
postponed until Powell returns from
Cleveland. Powell expects to recch
here Thanksgiving day morning,
and the meeting will be called just
as soon thereafter as possible. At
that time the question will be put up
to the automobile dealers, and a de
cision will be reached in regard to
holding an automobile show.
A representative of The Bee called
upon a number of the automobile
dealers this afternoon and found
each dealer interviewed to be in fa
vor of the show.
Will Depend on Situation.
One or two of the dealers felt that
the holding of the show would de
pend largely upon the material situ
ation and upon later developments.
R. E. Davis of the Murphy-O'Brien
Auto company favors the show,
providing the manufacturers are in
a position to deliver cars. W. H.
Head of the Oakland Motor com
pany, although in favor of the shpw,
hestitated tp express an opinion until
he found but( more definitely 'what
the material situation was to be.
Guy L. Smith, Hudson representa

of the Jones-Opper company, Lee
Huff of the Nebraska Buick Auto
mobile company, Charles A. Tucker

Motor company, M. S. Conner
Studebaker branch manager; Q. M.
Bonney, Studebaker distributor,
Carl Changstrom of the Standard
Motor Car company, George Van-
Brunt of the VanBrunt Automobile
company, were all very much in fa
vor of the holding of a slfow.
Tl. - r l
ine consensus oi opinion among
the above dealers is Jhat a stimulus
of this nature is needed to revive
interest in the automobile industry.
A great many people are not ac
quainted with the fact that the re
strictions placed upon the manufac
turers of automobiles has been lift
ed to some extent and the automo
bile show will do a great deal '.j
ward acquainting people with the
favorable conditions now surround
ing the automobile interests.
Another angle from which a num
ber look at the show situationis the
general teood which a show of this
nature does the city. The automo
bile show brings thousands of peo
ple to Omaha each year, and is the
means of keeping out-oMown- peo
ple in touch with Omaha during the
winter months. All of the dealers
realize that it would be a mistake
to allow buyers from this territory
to go elsewhere to view the new

Grade Gas; Council

The gas supplied by the Omaha
Gas company is below the required
standard, according to tests made by
City Chemist Crowley at the request
of City Commissioner Butler. The

the test will be presented before the
city council for action .
