I THE HERALDWINSII
Opinion of the
Thftr* in no question of doubt but
what. Ihnt Rpniiifi, Thoo. S. Baldwin, has
produced the most pprffot Alrohip the
world had evrr sppii. Olhfr iiipii bpfore
his tlmP, Prof. hatißlry, I.pbaudy, Vil-
Inrd, Hppncpr, Hickf»rd, UuMont,
Wrlßht nnd Dr. rtrrth hnvp lpft an ltn«
prpsslon on Hip subjprt, pnrh In his own
way, but It hns rptnulnpd for Mr. Bald-
win lo at ln«t ncmmiillsh a definite
somrlliliiß:, and hp la giving the world
the benpfil of his bralnK and gpnlus In
hl« Airohlp of today. Without a doubt
he hno oolved the problem of aerial
navigation nnd the flnnl ronriuest o(
the nlr Is now an rstabllßhPd fact. In
bin New York factory they are today
working on modern Airships which
will within a few months be common
Fights In the rttst. Mr. Hnldwin has
gathered nbont him many other
geniuses, such ns Roy Knabenshue, and
these men aro under contract witli his
company and they are going nhead
nlong definite. lines, doing n grent work
In establishing the Airship business as
a practical nn<l positive Industry. No
doubt there Will be n certain percentage
of deaths duo to Airships carrying pas- v
aertgers, but it Is quite likely that the
death rate will be a great per cent
lower than that of the railway trains.
When the time cornea for the Airship
Industry to be practical, which is now
but a matter of a few months, then
business men will sit down and calcu-
late the number of pounds that a 200-
horse power gasoline engine will inove
through tho air, the number of gallons
of gHßoliiifi used per hundred miles, the
wnges of an aeroferre covering a day's
Journey, cay of lono miles, He will ob-
tuln figures something like these:
Wages for. ten hours $3.00
Gasoline consum.cd In ten hours
fifty gallons 6.00
Interest on machine (cost not to
exceed $2000.00), wear and
tear, machine oil, waste, etc.. 1.00
Total cost of trip for 10 hours. slo.oo
Distance covered, 1000 miles; time to
Chicago, 10 hours; net weight carried,
DOOO pounds of merchandise, or 33 pas-
sengers; fare from New York to Chi-
cago, per passenger, $1.00.
For 33 passengers carried on
Total cost of operating machine,
New York to Chicago. 10.00
Net profits per day $23.00
As these profits would more 'than
pay for a machine every hundred days,
It Is possible that one dollar from New
York to Chicago may be found to be an j
excessive fare, .when it conies to fixing
the charges by aerial route. There Is
more money to be made In the Airship
business than has been made in any of
the industrial enterprises in the world
before, and without doubt Mr. Bald-'-
win's company, which he is financing in j
New York and Los Angeles, will make
for his clients millions of dollars, and it
is sure to make every stockholder
wealthy. We have pleasure In calling .
your attention to his advertising, which
appears in this issue, and which out- \
lines at greater length some of the
things they have in mind for the fu-
ture of the company.
