BIG DISPLAY OF AUTOS
Exhibition Is Crowded and Orders
Amounting to Five Million
Dollars Are Given
Special Cablo to The Herald.
LONDON, Dec. 2.— Though It may not
be a social function such as Is that of
the Paris Salon, the automobile show
at Olympla proved a tremendous at
traction to society people, who crowded
the building in which the exhibition
was held from the opening to the close.
The sales have been enormous, and it Is
estimated that orders amounting in
value to £1,000,000 ($5,000,000) were
The calculation was made by Claude
Johnson, former secretary of the Au
tomobile club. There were 300 exhibit
ors; and any firm would, Mr. Johnson
thought, be disappointed If It did not
book orders worth £5000 ($25,000), which
would make a total of £1,500,000 ($7,500,
000), but £1,000,000 ($5,000,000 was
scarcely too high a figure for the
amount that would actually be realized.
Inquiries at various points confirmed
Mr. Johnson's estimate. Shortly after
the show had opened a Parlß agency
gave S. F. Edge alone an order for no
fewer than slxty-slx six-cylinder Chas
sis, ranging Jn price from £1000 ($5000)
to £1500 ($7500) each, and another
order for the same firm for twelve six
cylinder Chassis was received from a

The British-made ear, in fact, did
splendidly, and all the British makers
talk cheerfully of the future;.
With a new order for a 30-40 horse
power car for the Prince of Wales simi
lar to thnt built for the king, the Daim
ler company has had a large share of
the rush of business. "I lost count of
how many we have sold," said the man
ager of that firm, "for. l have been too
busy to think about It, ■ but it Is at
least seventy cars. The prices have
been cut down to rock bottom and It
has done good to trade. We Intend
turning out one thousand cars this sea

Special Cable to The Herald.
PARIS, Dec. 2.— A whole district of
Paris was excited by the appearance
the other night of a guillotine in the
vast square left vacant by the demoli
tion of the Temple market. The neigh
borhood believed that the site had been
altered permanently. A motjley crowd
was soon dancing and singing, but the
police dispersed them and removed the
guillotine, which appears to belong to
a boulevard exhibition chamber of
horrors. . - •» ■- ..'••

Gen. Adna Chaffee, commander of the
United States army, now in Los An

from his official duties. He has decided
to make his future residence In or near
Los Angeles. Yesterday he made an
offer of $30,000 for the McJohnson place,
opposite the Homer Laughlln hill at
Hollywood, but so far as known the
deal was not closed. Gen. Chaffee will
probably seek further in the vicinity of
