FLYING EASY ART
Aviator Declares Learning to
Guide Aeroplane Is Like
Walking on Stilts
PERIL NO GREATER THAN AUTO
Birdman Is Only In Air Twice Be
fore His Paris-to-Lon
[Associated Press 1
NEW TORIC Oct. 13.—John B.
Molssant, the American aviator, who
drew the attention of the world by
his flight from Paris to London, de
clares that learning to guide an aero
plane ls about as easy as learning to
write or walk on stilts.
Mr. Aioissant is preparing his quar
ters at the Belmont aviation field ln
anticipation of making; some trial
flights before tho opening of the in
ternational tournament, >--, ■'..'■ V
"There is no great mystery or great
difficulty about operating an aero
plane," he said to a committee of the
International meet officials, when
they received him at Belmont park.
"Everybody will realize this very soon
and the next generation wll} use
aeroplanes as we are now using auto
mobiles. The perfection of the flying
machine ' from now on will be very
rapid and its perils will be found to
be no greater than the perils of burst
ing tires and skidding wheels and
faulty automobile machinists.
"Every person who makes a flight
In an aeroplane comes back to earth
with the same Impression. He tells
you that It was a delightful experi
ence, that it was something new, that
he was not a bit scared and is crazy
to do lt again. That tells the whole
story. When I made ray flight from
Paris to London I had been in an aero
plane but twice before.
"When I announced that I intended
to make the flight, Latham, Lo Blanc
and Bleriot said I was crazy and
laughed at me; when I said that I
was going to take a passenger they
thought I had gone stark mad. The
passenger— of my mechanicshad
never been In a machine before.
"I had never been north of Paris
and knew nothing at all of the route,
but I had a map and a compass in
front of.mo and had no difficulty in
getting to\ Calais.
« "I went up very high when I start
ed to cross tho channel, took a gen
eral course toward England and shot
away on the flight. It was no trick
to cross the channel, as It was only
24 or 25 miles wide, which could be
covered in a few minutes."
RADLEY, ON TRIAL FLIGHT,
■ FALLS IN GUST OF WIND
NEW YORK, Oct. IS.—James Radley.
the English aviator who arrived
three days ago to take part In the In
ternational aviation meet at Belmont
park, met with a mishap while making
a trial flight today.
His machine was caught by a gust of
wind and turned completely over,

carriage to the police station.

Toklo, saying that the behavior of the

The resources of the ordinary hos

these diseases will be admitted during
the period that their ailments are un

No physician connected with the hos
pital will be allowed to engage in out
side practice or to consult with re

The hospital is to be free. Not even
the wealthiest patients will be allowed
to pay any fee for either treatment,
hospital expenses or drugs. The only
requirement is that his ailment must
be rare or be one of those on which
the medical profession is divided, or

ESCAPED PRISONER FEARS
Kansas Oonvict Returns to Serve
Out His Term
LEAVENWORTH, Kas., Oct. 13.—
Preferring to return to prison rather
than to be continually hounded by the
belief that he was being pursued by
detectives, John Sportsman, an escaped
convict, I surrendered - himself - at the
Kansas state prison in Lansing' yes
terday. • . " '
Sportsman and John Wllgus, both of
whom were trusties, escaped from the
prison several months ago. Sportsman
went to Missouri and obtained a posi
tion on a farm. But the fear that he
was being spied upon by detectives
worried him greatly, and yesterday he
walked back to prison to give himself
up. Going into a prison stable, he
called a deputy warden ' over a tele
phone and said:
"I'm here, ready to give - myself up.
I'm thoroughly tired of running away
from detectives." r
•i When Spotsman ran away he had but
eight months of a , five-year term to
serve. Now, because of his escape, he
will not be released until April, 1912.
Wllgus has never been located.

VICTORIA, B. C, Oct. 13.—Six new!
steamers, two of which have been or

place the steamers now used by the
Nippon . Yusen Kalsha in ' the trans
pacific service to Seattle. Orders were
placed with the Kawasaki dock yard

company of Nagasaki for two steam

maintain an average speed of twelve
knots and the vessels will be followed
by four others.
The construction of new liners for
the transpacific line Is being hastened
owing to revision of the deep sea

weeding out did steamers of between
4000 and 6000 tons.
The Toyo Kisen Kalsha Is to aban

Million Dollars to Be Raised for

NEW YORK, Oct. 13.—What "A Mil
lion for Tuberculosis from Red Cross
Seals" will do in the checking of con
sumption is explained in a bulletin Is
sued today by the National Associa
tion for the Study and Prevention of
Counting every available bed for
consumptives in the United States,
even those ln almshouses, penal Insti
tutions and hospitals for the insane,
there are at the present time accom
modations for hardly 30,000 tuberculo
sis patients. This is just about one
bed for every ten indigent consump
tives and if ail tuberculosis persons in
the countrty are counted, both rich and
poor, hardly one for every twenty-five
or thirty. If sufficient hospital accom
modations are provided for only those
who are too poor to pay the full price
for their treatment, fully 275,000 more
beds in special institutions for tuber
culosis would be needed at once. The
immense outlay necessary to provide
and maintain so many beds in hos
pitals makes it imperative, the Na
tional Association for the Study .and
Prevention of Tuberculosis declares,
that such Institutions be erected from
public money, either municipal, county
or state. In order to get appropria
tions for public hospitals for tubercu
losis, agitation is necessary and in or

tion, organization is demanded. But
In order that an organization may carry

These funds It is proposed to secure
In as many communities as possible
from the sale of Red Cross seals.
The national association cites one il
lustration of the way in which a small
sum spent in education has secured
large appropriations. The New York
State Charities Aid association In the
three years, 1908, 1909 and 1910, has
spent In the up-state portion of New
York about $55,000 in arousing the peo
ple to the dangers of tuberculosis. As
a direct result of the public senti
ment produced by this outlay the
state, cdunty and municipal authori
ties have* already appropriated for tu
berculosis work $1,500,000 and appro
priations for* hundreds of thousands of
dollars are pending. Hundreds of hos
pital beds have been provided and the
association already aims for "No Un
cared for Tuberculosis in 1915."
Thus, the national association says,
If $1,000,000 is realized from the sale
of Red Cross seals, millions more -will
be added to it from the public treas
uries. Last year 25,000,000 stamps were
sold. It is aimed this year to sell four
times as many _■ V

fact that from 65 to 70 per cent of the

rapidly as'it is physically and mental

comer last night, In an address to the

' "One great reason why this Is true Is
that the churches of Chicago are not

upbuilding of the city and in looking
out for the young boys and men. • .•---.
"We must not expect that the fresh
blood that comes pouring in from the
country will keep Chicago's moral bal
