I. Eliminated by Mishaps;
' Rohlfs Witnesses Start
ETAMPES, France, Sept. 28.?Sadi
?^ecointe, the aerlia idol of France,
won ?or his native land to-day a
world's and permanent possession of
*3*e Gordon Bennett Airplane trophy
in the first great international air race
since the war. In a Nieuport special,
lecointe flew over the course of 186.3
miles in 1 hour 6 minutes and 17 1-5
* The great race proved to be a huge
?disappointment, bith in point of speed
and performance. Of the six starters
i$nly two completed the course and
both were representatives of France.
Captain de Romanet covered the dis
?ance in 1 hour 39 minutes and 35 2-5
seconds in a Spad.
*' The two American entries, piloted by
Captain Rudolph W. ?Schroeder and
Howard Rinehart, were early elimi?
nated through minor mishaps. Cap?
tain F. P. Raynhara, the sole British
*ntry, also withdrew, as did Kirsch,
the third French entry.
:J Coombs Unable to Start
j Clarence Coombs, who was to have
?own the Curtiss Castus Kitten mono
?lane, which is looked upon as the
istest of the American entries, was
unable to start owing to the fact that
his machine did not arrive at the Villa
Sauvage aerodrome twenty-four hours
before the time set for the race, in
accordance with the rules. This delay
was directly due to the accident which
Sefell Roland Rohlfs while landing
ere on Sunday.
' The start of the race had been set
for 7 o'clock this morning, but had to
be delayed until after 1 o'clock in
the afternoon because of threatening
weather. Low lying clouds hung over
th? aerodrome and the hazy horizon
gave very low visibility. Toward noon
the 6un began to pierce the blanket of
clouds and the prospects brightened
ri-pidly. As the sun gained in strength
the contesting airmen started to warm
OP their motors for the race.
Shortly after 1 o'clock the, order was
given for the start. The six machines
Crossed the line as follows*. Kirsch,
France, 1:37 p. m.; Captain de Ro?
manet, Fr?nce, 1:44:52; Sadi Lecointe,
2:08:54; Rinehart, America, 2:11:10;
Captain Schroeder, America, 2:37; Cap?
tain Raynham, England, 4:34:36.
Rohlfa Sees Start
- The course was over a lap of 100
kilometers, and each entrant had to fly
over it three-times. Kirsch completed
the first 100 kilometers in 21 minutes
29 seconds in a Nieuport, establishing
a world's record for the distance. Le?
cointe covered the first 100 kilometers
in 21 minutes 36 seconds.
Roland Rohlfs, who was injured
Sunday while landing, appeared on the
field just before the start. He had a
black eye and was suffering from
numerous bruises. He said he plan'ned
to sail for America to-morrow.
In a special statement issued yester?
day, the contest committee of the Aero
Club of America deplored the charges
made bv Claude R. Collins, president
of the Aviators' Club of Pennsylvania,
and C. Anderson Wright, president of
the Aero Club of Texas, that foal
means were used by foreign entrants
to keep America from winning.
Messrs. Collins and Wright implied
the French resorted to unsportsman?
like methods," the Aero Club state?
ment reads, "but we have no evidence
to sustain this. Their allegation that
trick rules were devised to the embar?
rassment and injury of the American
contestants is untrue, in so far as the
contest committee of the Aero Club of
America ia informed."

Mrs. Towles said yesterday that her
husband, who has a studio at 1823
Broadway, was going to sue her for
divorce in New Jersey on the grounds
"My husband used to beat me so '
severely that I was compelled to leave
him," said Mrs. Towles. "Then he
came to me last January and proposed
that we try living together again. 1
told him I would try it once more if ?
he would sign an agreement which I ;
drew up. it is the one offered as evi- j
dence in Newark.
"Beverley is a very popular fellow
and makes the best sort of person
to chum around with, but he was never
meant to be a husband. He is too
fond of the ladies. Shortly after he
I signed the agreement I discovered that
? he was running around with a cook who
is employed by some swell millionaire
on Fifth1 Avenue. He is still going
with her and 1 have seen him drivirg
her around town in his automobile.
I The fact that ?he has a husband who is
a butler doesn't seem to bother him
"Last summer i made a visit *?
Babylon and left Beverley in the apart?
ment. Mrs. Edythe Soderquist, whose
husband was with the Army of Oc?
cupation in Europe at that time, was
' stayinir with us. When I returned
I from Babylon Mrs. Soderquist told me
j that Beverley had entetred her room
one night and sitting down on the bed
said: 'Well, are you going to give me
a kiss?" Mrs. Soderquist drove him
out of the room with a swagger stick
belonging to her husband and after
' that used to keep her door tied with
i a rope.
"He has accused me of drinking and
? smoking cigarettes. Well, the only
cigarettes I ever smoked were those
he brought me. He used to make me
smoke perfumed cigarettes because he
liked the odor. Then he used to get up
parties in the flat and he would bring
in wine and we used to drink that.
This is the only drinking and smoking
I ever did."
Vice-Chancellor Foster denied yes?
terday the application for an injunction

N. H. Republicans Vow to
Restore People's Rights
Pledge Merited Recognition to
Women in Party Councils
and Aid for Veterans
CONCORD, N. II., Sept. 28.?The Re?
publicans of New Hampshire were
pledged "to restore the sovereignty of
the people and preserve the fundamen?
tal principles of the Constitution" in
the platform adopted by the Republi?
can State Convention here to-day. The
national candidates and their platform
were warmly indorsed.
The resolutions assured women of
merited recognition in party councils
in the state and liberal dealings with
World War veterans and their depen?
dents was pledged. The "beneficial ef?
fects of prohibition" was declared to
?. a cause for congratulation..
The success of the Republican ticket
in November, the platform added,
would maintain the United States "un?
challenged in a position of dignity,"
and at the same time tend 'toward "a
: policy of honest cooperation for the
maintenance of peace, a policy resting
upon the absolute foundation of unas?
sailable American independence."
Charles S. Emerson, in his address
as president of the convention, wel?
comed the women voters and expressed
the conviction that Republican princi?
ples and the Republican record would
attract the new voters to its ranks.
United States Senator George H.
Moses thanked the convention and the
party in the state for the support ac?
corded to him at the primaries, saying
that he accepted it not so much as a
tribute to himself as to the principles
for which he stood?"New Hampshire
and America and a virile Americanism,
instead of the futile internationalism
of President Wilson."
Representative Simeon D. Fess, of
Ohio, said there was an unquestion?
able sentiment in the country for an
association of nations, but he felt cer?
tain there was no considerable support
of "a super-government."
