to the effect that Oahu was soon to
become one of the important aerial
experimental b tat ions of the army, is
confirmed by news that Major Kdgar
uks1I. S. j.V has btyn placed in
charge of th 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. t6
take the offensive against battleships
and transports, attempting to i effect
a troop landing. If there is one spot
on the territorial map of the United
states where the who!e theory of
warfare t-euters 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
past, 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 and 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
squad that was known to be in opera
tion here would be tremendous," said
one army, officer -this morning. In dis
cussing the proposed flying station.
If i military aviators could -demonstrate
their -ability to fly .here under
average weather conditions, and it
was public property; that the flyers
were iwell provided with high; explo
sive bombs, it wonld certainly have a
detterent effect on any enemy con
templating a landing. A few' aero
planes might be .a tie 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

ed to use light tracers for night firing
and smoke tracers for the day in or

from the gun.
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 past four 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 been studying
at the Curtiss factory, at .Hammonds
port, N. ..Y who will also leave for
Han Iiiego, 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 PaciUc.
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 tne skies. How
ever, it Is rupaored 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 the present, the regular
small arms will ;be sufficient defense
against aeroplanes. But they are
taking no chances and are preparing
for the eventual. development of the
aeroplane to appoint at which they
will be able, to dart Lack and forth
forth over the islands with the speed
and facility of swallows.
The ordnance ; department has thor
oughly tested the carriage for the
three-inch aeroplane gun and It is a
success. , .The sights of tthe new . gun
are said to he virtually, automatic.
