GEORGIA DAY MARKS
REAL OPENING OF FAIR
(Continued from First Page.)
Iiis services in behalf of aeronautic
Mr. Tucker spoke with an Interest
and familiarity of the subject that
assured the aeronaut enthusiasts that
the science will receive the hearty
cooperation of the Exposition offi?
cials. He- told of having been in
Washington working tor the million
dollar loan for the Exposition when
Beachy, the airship man who is now
connected with the Exposition, salted
around the capltol dome and the loan
was quite forgotten while senator*
and all rushed to the portico to see
Mr. Augustus Post of the New
YorK Aero Club and who is chairman
of the executive committee of the
Congress accepted the building and
talked of the progress of the science
of navigating the air with much evi?
dence Of faith in ultimate success In
mastering the problems involved. He
compared the story of stenm naviga?
tion of the seas with that of present
day aeronautics, recalling the diffi?
culties of the early inventors, their
struggles, disappointments and dis?
He referred humorously to the
ramming of the battleship Alabnmu
by M. Qodet's airship, when M. Godet
struck- an 18-mile air current was
carried against two pine trees at the
Inside Inn, lost his propeller and
?rudder and was carried out over
Hampton Roads before he could get
enough gas out of his bag to alight
aBohre. Aboard the Alabama they
helped him out, deflated the bag and
put him safely ashore.
-Ti3'he Aeronautic building is of
eastern architecture, and Is an Im
posing structure, high enough for the
Inflation or a balloon or airship. It
is equipped with atl necessary ofri
ceB, covers an area of 65 by 125 feet,
and Is-surrounded by a concourse of
about an acre. All of the airship
Rights In the fu'fre will be started
from this concourse.
JAPANESE WAR THREATS
ONLY POLITICAL BLUFF
Tempest Raised, It is Believed, for
^ the Purpose of Overthrowing

(By Associated PreBs.l
WASHINGTON, L>. C, june 10.?
The threatened internntrcnnl Incident
between Japan and the United States,
as a result or the disturbances In
San Francisco, turns out to be merely
an exhibition of war In politics on a
large scale. The only international
feature of If is that there happened
to be In this country a number or
Japanese who sympathize with the op?
position party at home, it is a cuse
of the outs wanting to get Into ottlce,
and using for that purpose every
means in their power.
