BREEZE CARRIES KNABENSHUE
Sky Chauffeur Uses Balloon Without
Power to study Currents
of tho Upper ,■ "_
At Knabenshue's command, the moor
ing' lines of the trim little balloon
"Midget" were cast off by the attend
ants In Chutes park yesterday after
noon, shortly after 3:80 o'clock, and
the pretty sky-wagon shot heavenward
and drifted northeast with the breese,
soon going entirely out of sight.
At 4:55 o'clock the aeronaut brought
his balloon to earth about a mile and
a half from Arlington, a station near
Riverside and about forty miles from
Los Angeles, Knabenshue having
traveled this distance in one hour and
twenty-five minutes, with only the
breeze as a motive power. The land
ing was finally made on a ranch owned
by J. D. Simpson, who drove the
aeronaut to the Qlenwood hotel In
Just before the ascension the clouds
which had covered the sky all day
cleared somewhat and the sun shone
brilliantly. Off to the northeast of
the park a large white cloud, illu
minated by the sun's rays, was hang-
Ing much lower than the other clouds.
The little balloon carrying Roy Kna
benshue rose with great rapidity, and
the thousands of spectators, were
treated to a rare and novel sight, for
the /. VMldg«t" completely . disappeared
in this cloud, 'to reappear above in a
few moments, having sailed through
the cloud, probably giving the aeronaut
a thorough drenching. The breeze was
stronger in the upper strata of air
than near the ground, and the balloon
■was carried rapidly oft to the north
Away Above the Clouds
■ From time to time Knabenshue threw
out ballast and passed on up through
the second strata of air into the one
above, which appeared to be moving
directly east, as the balloon started off
In. that direction at a rapid rate, soon
disappearing from the view of the
watchers in Los Angeles.
. Out over the San Gabriel valley
Knabenshue floated. The forms of the
ranchers and their families who filled
the yards of the ranch houses were
hardly discernable from the great alti
tude at which he was floating, accord
ing to a telephone message from him
received by The Herald on his arrival
in Riverside. This said:
j "When they let go "the mooring ropes
in the park the balloon shot, skyward
so rapidly the gas turned a milky color
and I was glad- when she slowed down
a bit and the gas again assumed its
natural condition. This is always the
case, and one has to be careful and not
go up too fast.
"When I was right under, the big
white cloud I threw out a bag of bal
last and shot up through it. For a
few moments I couldn't see anything,
either up or down, and I got pretty
wet. However, I soon came out above
the cloud and sailed on northeast.
:*V . Looked Over Mt. Wilson
. "Out over the valley I could Just
make out the people around the ranch
houses looking up at the balloon. The
mountains have a curious effect on the
air currents, and It was for the pur
pose of studying the change in cur
rents that I wanted to sail close to
them. If possible, I intended to light
on Mt. Wilson.
"The clouds were hanging low
against the mountains, and so I had
to go up higher to get above them.
I slowed down when my barometer in
dicated 8000 feet. By that time I was
away above the clouds and could not
see the valley 'at all, but could look
right over the top of Mt. Wilson.
"The mount ill us seem to change the
air currents, and the balloon was car
ried along parallel with the range for
awhile, then away from it and I was
again completely out from sight of the
"I knew I had drifted a long way up,
but was . rather surprised when J. D.
Simpson, on whose ranch I landed, told
me that I was forty miles from Los
Angeles. I know that I drifted much
farther than this, as .the balloon went
In almost every direction during the
last half hour that it was in the air.
"I got a lot of valuable data and am
going to try it again soon and see how
far I can get in this little balloon."

WHAT WILL MAYOR
DO ABOUT GAS?
THIS IS QUESTION CITIZENS
Councllmen Appear Ready to Pass
Ordinance Over Mayor McAleer's
Veto, Should He See Fit
to Do So
What will be Mayor McAleer's de
cision today in regard to the public
utility ordinance passed by the coun
cil three weeks ngo?
Thin is the question the councllmen
and citizens of Los Angeles are ponder
ing. Action on this ordinance, which
was drawn and passed for the purpose
of regulating three of the public utili
ties which ni% almost absolute neces
sities to the citizens of Los' Angeles,
has been deferred ns long as possible,
but this is the lost day allowed th>'
mayor for its consideration, and he will
have to reach a decision or the ordi
nance will be out of his hands, ac
cording to the opinion of several coun
cilmen who were discussing the ques
When the council passed the ordi
nance regulating the monopolies which
were seeking to control the gas, elec
tric light and telephone service in Los
Angeles without a dissenting vote it
was thought that the hard fight which
had been persistently carried on by The
Herald for months in the interest of
the people had at last been won, and
that the rights of the people would be
recognized, but it seems the ordinance
did not exactly suit the mayor, and its
becoming a law has thus far been de
The Mayor's Delay
The mayor, it' is understood, thinks
the ordinance would be Improved If the
candle power 1 was placed at twenty-five,
and the heat units at 600. He also
thinks that the time for fixing the rates
has been set at too late a date.
The members of the council do not
agree with the mayor on these points,
and they express themselves as being
strongly In favor of the .ordinance as
It stands. They claim that to place
the candle power so high would ef
fectually shut out California oil as a
base for the manufacture of the gas,
and force the company to use coal,
thus working a great injustice on the
oil industry of this section. Again,
they claim that gas of high candle
power and low heat units is unsatis
factory in every way.
The mayor has held several confer
ences with members of the council and
with his cabinet, at which times the
gas question was discussed, and it is
believed by the council that he will
send the ordinance "back to them to
day with the recommendation that the
changes specified above be Inserted In
It. Some of the city officials also be
lieve that he may veto it outright, or
pass it up and let the ordinance suffer a
There seems to be a strong sentiment
among the aldermen In favor of the
ordinance as it stands, and it is con
sidered not unlikely that It might be
passed over the mayor's .veto.
FIREBUGS SAID TO
BE AT WORK AGAIN
Blaze of Alleged Incendiary Origin
Damages North Main Street
Another fire of alleged incendiary
origin, which the police have been
asked to investigate, occurred last night
at 10:60 o'clock at 1456 North Main
street. The prompt response of the
fire department to an alarm turned in
from box 822 prevented the loss from
amounting to more than $200, but the
blaze caused considerable excitement
among the occupants of the building,
who threw themselves nnd their be
longings out of every window when
they heard that the place was on fire.
The building, which firebugs are sup
posed to be after, is a three-story
frame, and is occupied on the ground
floor by a barber shop and a grocery
store belonging to George Oatreno. The
two upper floors uro used as a rooming
house and are conducted by Mrs. N.
The fire broke out in the barber
shop, and, when the department inves
tigated they could find no cause for the
blaze. The roomers on the upper
floors were badly scared, but aside
from the damage to furniture by
throwing it to the ground there was no
loss. ' The building Is owned by J. J£.

COLUMBUS, 0., March 26.— Rev. Dr.
Washington Gladden of the general
Council of Congregational churches of
the United States In his sermon today
dlscused the gift of $100,000 made by a
prominent capitalist to the American
Hoard of Missions. He said:
"The< money proffered to our board
of mislons comes out of a colossal
estate whose foundations were laid in
the most relentless rapacity known to
modern commercial history. The suc
cess of this business from the begin
ning until now has been largely due
to unlawful and outrageous manipula
tions of railway rates. The United
States government is now engaged In
a strenuous attempt to ferret out and
punish this injustice. And the people
of the United States have a tremend
ous battle on their hands with the cor
porate greed which has entrenched It
self in this stronghold and has learned
to use the railways for the oppression
of the people. And now, oh the eve
of this battle, they are asked to accept
a gift of money from the man who
more completely than any other repre

to fight. '..•.*•
"I hope they are not mean enough
to take this money and then turn
around and fight him. I hope they are
not so faithless to their obligations as
to take his money and ' shut ■ their
mouths or become his apologists. We
do not want this man's money. To
accept It would be to merit the con

reject it will strengthen our churches
in the affection and respect of millions
who are inclined to doubt whether the
