(V nfiriia;ion .t tlw rumor that
went the !oal rounds hoiiic time ago,
lo the effect that Oahu was toon to
IxTOine one of th important aerial
experimental stations of the army, is
ron Armed by news tliaf .Major Edgar
Itnssell. S. C.'., has been placed in
charge of the aeronautical branch of
the signal corps. Major Russell is
known to be an enthusiastic believer
in the efficiency of aeroplanes, not
'only for scouting, .but particularly to
I take tbe offensive against battleships
and transports, attempting' to effect
a troop landing. If there is one spot
on the territorial map of the United
states where the whole theory of
warfare centers around the repelling
of an invading force, it is Oahu, and
it is known that Major Russell has
had his eye on Hawaii for some time
last, with a view to trying out a fleet
of protective aeroplanes.
Army officers in this department,
while somewhat skeptical as to suc
cessful flying, owing to treacherous
currents arid baffling winds, are unan
imous in admitting the great advan
tage of aeroplanes that could be used
to harry troops trying to effect a
landing, and that might be a constant
menace to the hostile navy and its
convoy of troopships.
Moral Effect Enormous.
"The moral effect of an aeroplane
pquad that was known to be in opera
tion h,cre would, be tremendous." said
one army officer this morning,. in dis
cussing the proposed flying station.
"If military aviators could demon
strate their ability to fly Here under
average weather conditions, and it
was public property that the flyers,
were well provided with high explo
sive bombs, it would certainly havo a
detterent effect on any enemy con
templating a landing? A few aero
planes might be able to accomplish
the mission of the; fleet that would
have to be hurried here in the event
of war, and that would probably ar
rive too late to engage the enemy;
Ono fact to strengthen the belief
jthat army aeroplanes will soon- le
I navigating the higher air lanes of
Oahu, is that there will be no more
hydro-aeroplane flying on the Poto
mac river this winter. The station,
which has- been maintained at the
war college for the p'astjour months,
has been taken down, and prepara
tions made for the shipment of the
machines to the Pacific Coast. Plans
at present call for the hydro-aeroplane
flyers of the army to spend the win
ter at San Diego, but with a number
of officers who have bcn studying
at the Curtis3 factory, at Hammonds
port, N. Y., who will also leave for
San Diego, there will be an overplus
cf military aviators and aeroplanes at
the Curtiss school there, and now is
the logical time to send men and ma
chines across the Pacific.
Oahu Not Threatened.
As to the protection of this island
from hostile aeroplanes, military men
are not worrying much on that score,
the carrying and launching of flying
machines from battleships and cruis
ers not being perfected to the point
where any formidable fleet could
menace Oahu from toe skies. How
ever, it is rumored that some of the
new aeroplane guns are destined for
Oahu. as part of the island's perman
ent defensive ordnance.
Army officers here are convinced
that, for tbe present, the regular
small arms will lx sufficient-defense
against aeroplanes. Rut they are
taking no chances and are preparing
for the eventual development of the
aeroplane to a point , at which they
wiJi be able to dart back and- forth
forth over the islands with the speed
and facility of swallows.
The ordnance department has thor
oughly tested tho carriage for the
three-inch aeroplane gun and it Is a
success. The sights of the new gun
are said to be virtually automatic.
The fire of the gun can bo controlled
so it will, sweep the heavens for a
ran go of three miles, - .-..--..

What is promised. as the biggest
novelty presented by the Hughes
Comedy Company is billed for to
l.ight's performance, it being a genu
ine chorus girls' contest, and, inas
much as 'keen rivalry exists among
the nine or ten 'sprightly ladies of
the chorus of this particular com
pany, as to who is the test chorus
girl, some unusually good amusement
is assured by this evening's contest.
Some excellent specialties will be
shown, as Manager Levey compels
each member of the chorus to enter
the contest, despite her respective
ability, or.Jack of ability, as the. case
might be. and the real fun. is fur
nished by , those unfortunate enough
to be- long on lack of ability.
An added interest In the contest is
made certain through the fact that
tonight's contest will settle a long dis
puted question between Miss Anna
Clark and Imogene Mansfield, each of
these girls having captured first prize
qii two different occasions, and should
either of ' these .annex first place to
night, they will doubtless proclaim
