"We want the public to understand
why we were uimblo to lly, nnd also to
understand that we are not responsible
because tho people wero kept at the
park the wholo day."
Ocncrnlly speaking, the criticism of
tho public Is against the aviators. Pro
moter Scully Is regarded ns unfortu
nate hut not to blame. The aviators
are frank In declaring that they did
their best, nnd that's tho way It stands.

CROWD IS ANGRY AT
FAILURES TO FLY
The nierlot monoplane, with Aviator
Mnxson nt tho steering wheel, mado a
irlef but Ineffectual attempt to leave
the (round nt Koplolant I'ark shortly
before 0 o'clock this inornlnir, and In
doing so the rattan buffer located nt
t'10 bottom of the machine, pliieed thero
to protect the steering gear from con
tad with the earth, became wrecked.
"There will bo no further attempt at
Hying today," was the only response
made by Munuger Adossldes nnd the
ever solicitous mechanic who since the
nrrlvnl of the trio of Frenchmen np
penrs to be the renl boss of the combi
nation. MusMin apparently obeyed tho man
date of the two companions, und lie
soon after left the Held, contentedly
pulling nway nt his cigarette.
The attempt nt night this morning
was made In the presenco ot n Ilttlo
crowd of boys who had gathered thero
from the neighborhood.

with the posltlvo guarantee to niitlto a

"From tho very llrst these men have
absolutely Ignored us. They had no

set up tho machines at Knplolnnl Park,
thero is no earthly reason why three

thereby nvoldid the great disappoint

tlicreforo missed by tho majority of
people, who waited In vain for the
sound of tho fire siren.
Masson Was Hungry.
When Mnsson wnsn't hungry ho wns
In need of n certntn brand of oil for
the monoplane. Beginning at 9 o'clock
tho rnpldly-lncrenslng crowd of spec
tators wns yesterday treated to seven
teen different kinds of the qucMlonablo
art of "stalling." Deforo the renl crowd
nrrlved, the sportive mechanic found
thnt lie was without smoking tobacco.
Ho started downtown, nnd then Mnsson
apparently chaffed a delay ns he re
luctantly admitted that ntmosphcrlc
conditions wero propitious, Tho French
mechanic afterwards returned, and
Musson took a stroll over nmong tho
assembled nutos nnd wn8 "lost." Tho
mechanic rtold thnt all wai ready, but

Masson wnfc discovered nnd brought
to tiio machine, when It was found that
the mechanic had failed to oil certain
pnrtb ot tlio mnclilnc. 'When he wns
dragged away from n seductive game of
matching coins, he suddenly found that
he lind no oil in the can. This was
forthcoming,, then Adossldes Jumped to
the conclusion thnt he must havo some
cigarettes. Ho strolled off towards
town, whllo Mai-son waited his return
to glvo the slgnnl to start.
AH this horseplay was taking much
time. At 11 o'clock the tlireo French

Tlio patient people waited. Fifteen
minutes lengthened to nn hour and then
two hours, when along about 1 o'clock
