Salt Lake One of the
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. IP With
the steady trade wind of the Pa
cific at hlS back. Robert G FOwler,
the flrst aviator to attempt a
transcontinental flight, sped today
up the fertile Sacramento valley and
landed at 6:36 o'clock this evening at the
foot Of the white ramparts of the Sierras,
the conquest of whose summit may prove
the ultimate test Of success or failure of
ids attempt. With but a brief halt at
Sat ran., nto for oil and gasoline, he drove
his biplane high over the rolling foothills
and landed Without a single untoward
Incident at Auburn, Cat., 126 miles from
his Btartlng point.
Sped by a mother's kiss and "God bless
VOU," Fowler rose from the stadium in
Golden Gate park at 1:37 p. m. Sweeping
In a circle over the surf of the Pacific,
hla -iir . raft swung like a compass needle
until his forward planes were notched
Into the sap In the snow lino Of the
Sierras through which he hopes to pass.
Then, with the cheers of thousands
billowing up to him. he sped over the
city, Swerved past the ferrv tower,
skimmed over the righting masts of the
cruisers at anchor In the bay. with a
hand wave of greeting, and hummed
Bteadily over the trail flrst worn by the
Argonauts of '49.
Made Good Time.
Over Berkeley, Sulsuq, Cannons and El
mira he sped, flying with the same
steadiness and control that marked his
start. The watches that checked his
progress showed that he was making a
stead forty-five miles an hour, and 1ij
never varied from that pace.
As he swept hltrh over the dome of the
state cap! to I at Sacramento a roar from
the thousands massed In Acrlcnltural
park directed him to his landing plai B
After a daring spiral he settled easily
to the cround. pulled the cotton front his

What time Is it?"
He was lold It was ?. 37 o clock He
had covered the ninety miles of the first
leg of his Journey In exactly two hours
' It was a great trip," he said "I had
not the slightest engine trouble, and the
'feci' of the air, even over Carquines
straits, was perfect."
He announced that he would continue
tn Auburn tonight, and the mechanicians
who had followed him in a special train
fought their way through the mob about
the machine and prepared for the con
tinuation of iho Journey
At '. 55 p. m. he slipped back into the
driving sen:, signaled to his mechanics,
and was off to the eastward.
Kissed Him Good-Bye.
A crowd of distinguished persons
gathered nt th--1 stadium in San Fran
cisco's big park to bid Fowler "bon
voyage." Representatives of the army
and navy greeted him. and after a trial
flight his biplane was christened with a
bottle of sea water from the Paciflt by
Tames Rolph, Jr. a director of the Pan
ama-Pat Iflc exposition.
His mother's kiss was nol the only one
Implanted on his Hps before he started
on his hazardous journey As ho passed
close to the ropes that held hack the
crowd from the machine a pr-ttv and
impetuous young miss threw her" arms
about the aviator's neck and kissed him
fervidly- Before he could break away,
another woman had pinned a "votes for
women" badge upon the breast of his
"Oh, vou Hobson," ejaculated an n
vlous male bystander, and Fowler broke
away, blushing furiously. and took
refuge among ins mechanicians, au-imit-
to.:!y mote frightened than by any danger
i" be met In mid-air. He continued to
wear the suffragette badge, however.
Fowler expects to make th transcon
tinental trip In twenty-six days. He will
leave Auburn early tomorrow morning,
