IS BACK ON THE JOB
Hanson Green Returns to Place
After Short Vacation at Mary
Henson Green, the veteran who
mounts guard at the southern door of
tho Treasury on Fifteenth street, will
be back on the Job tomorrow after
leave' spent In hia old home In Fred
erick, Md. Mr. Green la one of the
several Treasury guards who about
three and one-halt years ago challenged
Secretary ot the Treasury Mac
Veagh and other high officials when
they sought to enter by this southern
postern of the Treasury.
"It la our duty," said Benjamin Mc
Alwee, another veteran now In Mr.
Oreen'a place. "Tho rules require us
to hold up all men entering at this
door after 9 a. m. whom wo do not
know persqnolly. The 1,000 Treasury
clerks who come to the building are
not allowed to enter by this door after
that hour, but muut punch a time
clock somewhere else.
Mr. Green la a veteran who fought
for his country against more than ordi
nary discouragement. His father and
two brothers enlisted under Lee, but
Mi. Green was for Abraham Lincoln,
tlfe Union and the Stars and Stripes,
and loial he remained, although it
meant bitter family troublo at the time.
Army Hopes for Repeal
Of "Back to Line" Order
The War Department la manifesting
much Interest In the reported Intention
of Congress to repeal or modify before
December IS the order that officers ab
sent four years out of six from their
command must return. Nevertheless,
preparations are being made to obey
the existing law to the letter, orders
being Issued to fort J -seven captains of
Infantry to proceed to their commands
today, all of them to report to the several-posts
not later than December 10.
Will the flying machine, designed and
built by Dr. S. P. Langley, and which
has not as yet made1 a successful flight,
be removed from Its quarters In the
Smlthsonlun Institute and given an
other trial to nacertaln Whether the
claims of the Inventor that It will re
main In the air for several hours and
fly at a high rate of sped are correct?
This I the question of Interest among
aviators and those Interested In avia
tion throughout the city today.
For the past several days there has
been a persistent rumor to the effect
that an effort was being made to secure
permission td test this machine. Ac
cording to the tumor the machine,
which Is almost Intact, Is to be thor
oughly repaired and fitted tilth new
wings, which are the only parts that
hnvo been destroyed. It was also said
that the machine would be fitted with
a Berliner gyioscopo motor.
When Emll Berliner was Interviewed
by a Times reported ho refused to say
anything rclalivo to the rumor, claim
ing that he did nrt think it would be
right for him to give away nnythlnc
he might have learned which would be
of a confidential nature He admitted,
however, that ha had been approached
by a scientist In Washington, who Is
Interested In aviation, regarding the
cost of his motor and tho approximate
time It would take him to deliver n
motor should he be called upon. Ho
declined to divulge the name of the
scientist or the purpose for which the
motor was desired.
A. P. ahm, secretary of tho Aero
Clug of Wushlngton, said toduy that,
while he had not heard an thing ahout
the movement, he understood that
Charles M. Manly, located In the White
hall building, New York city, who wu
fhlnf nnirlniiAi. fn T")t l.nitfrt... und
who dcslKned the engines with which'
the machine la at present equipped, i
had said recently that he had been
approached by several Individuals whoi
offered to supply the funds necessary
to mnko another trial with the ma
chine In order to vindicate .the name
of Dr. Uingley.
Whether the machine would be tested
with Its own enslnca or with a giro
scope motor he wan unable to aay, but
thought that If u test should be made
the engines with which It una originally
equipped would He iisea. ,
If tho tumor la correct an dthe ma-1
enme to ue removed rrom ita quartern,
the fact la ot known nt the Smithsonian
Institute. II. W. Dorscy. who la In
chargo of the machine, sjid lie thought
It waa merely a rumor. He also said
that It would requite considerable work
to reassemble tho machine. Mr. Dorsey
said that should a teat be attempted
It would undoubtedly be mode with the
engines designed by Mr. Manly.
The Langley machine Is a double
tandem monoplane, and has not aa yet
made n successful lllght, although two
trials have been made. In both In
stances' the wings caught on the guy
posts In the launching, and, before the
macnlne could be repaired and tried for
the thin) time, the $0,000 appropriated
by the Smithsonian Institute had been
exhausted, and the machine, was stored
away as a relic. However, the model,
of the machine made a successful flight
While no accurate Information can
be .secured aa to whether a teat will
actually be made of the machine. It Is
said, on what Is considered good author
ity th.it this Is u fact. Aviators and
thou Interested In aviation are watch
ing with Interest the future develnpe
ment of the rumor, as It la known that
tranv people are Interested In giving
the machine a further test and aro
ready to provide the funds should the
Government give permission for the test
to be mane.
