Asbury Park, 'N. J.. Oct. 29. Os
car Erbsloeh, pilot of the German
balloon, Pommern, the winner of the
great race or last week, tells of the
trip an follows:
"I confess a feeling of disappoint
me.ic even though, a pilot of the
Pommern, the credit Is given to me'
on the ocean beach at A ETAION
for winning of the greatest balloon
race on record.
"Why? Because when we landed
on the ocean beach at Asbury Park,
N. J., the Pommern still held
enough gas to have carried us 600
miles, and Prof. H. iH. Clayton, my
aid, and myself, were keen to break
the Paris-Russia record of 1,192
miles. A current of wind from the
southwest would have carried us to
New England. But Providence did
not provide and there was the great
ocean before us.
"But It was a wonderful flight,
magnificent, ehilarating and full of
the thrill that every aeronaut
knows, from the moment the signal
was given at 4 o'clock on the af
ternoun of Oct. 21. At the start our
great envelope held 77,000 cubic feet
of gas and it seemed but an instant
before our Instrument showed en al
titude of 2.500 feet. We floated
"northward, but the course was slow'

villages, occasionally with our night
glasses we saw scattered lights.
'The cold, especially after dark,
was Intense and we donned our
heaviest garments. Prof, Clayton
devoted his time to the instruments,

kept busy with the balloon.
"The lirst city of importance over
-which wo pasjed was Dayton, O., its
maze of electric lights giving It the
appearance of an immense glow

"The balloon was as steady as a

"When daylight approached the

noises that reached us at daylight
were those of hte tiu-sy world: the
farmer shouting at his cattle; the
rattle of wagons; the sound from
the smithy; the factory whistles;
the rumble of street cars and rail
road trains. We could, when very
low .hear voices, but those on earth
could not have heard us. Our voices
would not penetrate the heavier

MOKEYJEjl AT HOME
Business Men Make Statements
To Citizen Reporter-No Cur
rency Prom Other Banks
So They Ctt None
The forming ot a ciearfng house
association iby the local banks last
evening was not unexpected. In
fact It was urged by the business
men as -well as by the bankers for
the purpose of keepl.ig Albuquerque
currency In Albuqunrque and in the
banks from where It can be circulat
ed so as to prevent a stringency In
That la all there Is to the propo
sition here. The banks are sound
and safe and have several dollars
securities for every dollar on de
posit. it would be 'impossible to
break ona Of the Albuquerque banks
and that does not in any manner
enter into .present conditions. The
securities held by our banks would
more than doubiy pay out.
A run on one 01 the local Insti
tutions, however, with money
tight in the east would prove em
barrassing to the local banks and
would injure .them absolutely with'
out any necessity for ao doing.
The action of the banks in en.
deavoring to hold the present cur
rency In this city was not only i
safeguard to our 1'nanclal Inatitu
flans and our bvlies houses, but
to every depositor, who 'has a right
to the fullest ' protection under these
unsettled condition. .
No Panic Pomllito.
It would 'be impossible to precipi
tate a panic here. It could not be
done because of the strength of our
financial Institutions and the gener
al .prosperous business condition of
The forming of the clearing house
was made necessary because all of
the large cities and many smaller
ones have taken similar steps and
because, the deposits of our local
banks in institutions in other places,
can not be had In the form of cur
rency for use here.
Consequently it is very necessary
that the currency now in our banks
be protected from drafts from other
iiiH'ltutions outside of our city.
Ixical banks have large balances In
banks of other cities. Until the
other banks took such action as to
hold their currency at home, it was
possible for our local banks to se
cure all the currency needed. Now
It is not. In order to protect home
currency, our bunks were forced to
get together, form a clearing house,
and' pass similar resolutions. It Is
purely a "business proposition made
necessary from outside and has noth
ing to do with local conditions other
than to protect them. It is sane,
safe, conservative banking business.
tVriiflcatc Will be L'scd.
Checks will be received at all lo
cal banks and certified which makes
them as good as money without the
passing of currency which is need
ed right here in Albuquerque for
business purposes. These checks
will go through the clearing house
as usual and ate good.
The action above mentioned was
taken by the local banks with ex
treme reluctance and only after It
was seeyi that local business and lo
cal people needed protection from
a currency stringency at home which
might otherwise result: As It Is,
this city will never feel the stringen
cy now felt in the east.
Business at the banks will proceed
about as usual with the exception
that Just as little currency will be
passed out m Is consistent.
The local clearing house expects
that the rules adopted last evening
will be In force but a very short
time. That will depend largely up
on the action of the clearing houses
in the moneyed centers.

Aeronaut Believes That an

probably will make another ascen

be out for a record. Ho probably
will start from Kansas City, as he
thinks that from that point with the

longer flight. Ho was somewhat un
fortunate in the last race, as the
wind caried him to the Atlantic
coast and he could go no further,
but If lie hud started from Kansas
City, he would have been carried
further north and into New England.
His balloon could have gone, he
thinks, GU0 miles further and made
a new record.
The incentive for this race will be

the Aero club of America to conv
