Engine Almost Goes Dead
at Great Height

into affected my angina strangely.
There seemed nothing In them to act
an pressure ngainst the propellers, and
it was hard for me to breathe."
■ The only mishap to mar the events of
the day was the total wreck of Curtlss
biplane 13 late yesterday afternoon,
when It plunged fifty feet to the ground
with Lincoln Beachey, who was sailing
over the course on a trial spin. Tho
satne machine wim damaged the pre
vious dny when Beachey ran Into a
Beachcy won rounding tlio turn In
the course tiff "automobile row" and
was about to slide in a landing before
tho Judges' stand, when No. la almost
turned turtle and drove one of Its
wings Into tim earth. The crowd,
Which was melting rapidly as the day's
flights drew to a close, saw the biplane
strike 111<■- ground and break Hko an
egg shell. Dust and splinters hid the
aviator from view, hut ho was pulled
out of the wreckage unharmed.
Beachoy blames the engine for being
slow and weak.
Shortly after Hoxsey. with the per
mission of the judges, had made his
ascension, Ely made a practice spin
around the course in a Curtlßs biplane,
Hp was followed by Parmoleo with an
armful of carnations, Parmeiee drove
'straight ahead over the grandstand
and s(*;«tU>rod red carnations the length
and breadth of the stand. Brooklni
followed with another bundle of carna
tions, but In- evidently flew too high,
tor the flowers fell wide of their murk
and dropped back of the grandstand,
where they were gathered up by the
venders mid sold later for souvenirs.
Latham, his cigarette clenched
tightly between his teeth, put his Mario
Antoinette through graceful maneu

While Hoxsey was soaring from sight
on his altitude and duration flight,
Latham, Willard, Ely, Brooklns and

Latham came third with 51 minutes,
Brooklns with 44:25 was fourth, and
Ely fifth With 43 minutes and 65 sec

Roy Knabenshue, manager for the
Wright brothers, went up with Dill
parmelee and took pictures of the
William C. K>rckhoff, member of the
aviation executive committee, dew sev
eral laps around the course with La
tham and appeared to enjoy his trip.
Parmelee and Knabonshue won the
passenger carrying event by 33 min

were up 20 minutes find 25 seconds,
Parmeleo and Knabenshue were third

There was a special dally prize for

either way, before the grandstand and
'remaining as close to the spectators
as possible, in which Latham, Ely,
Brooklns, Parmelee, Willard, Hoxsey,
Hadley and Curtlss were contestants,
Latham won, Brooklns was second
and Ely third.
Glenn Curtlss pleased the spectators
by bringing his new SO-horse power
racer out on the course for Its second
tryout. Eugene Ely was placed at the
■ wheel and sailed the course In 1 mm,
, ute 56*1 seconds. Curtiss 1 time the
night before, when bo gave the ma
chine Its christening run, was faster
by many seconds.
The aviation committee yesterday
adopted a new plan, by which all those
attending the meet are afforded an
opportunity between 12 and 1 o'clock
of entering the field and visiting the
different camps on a tour of inspec
tion of the various machines.

The party occupied the logos across

AGED INDIAN SEES
Chief lodine Visits Aviation Field
with Three Hundred San
One .Indian's stoicism was strained
almost to the breaking point when
Chief lodine, 88 years of age, one-time
confidant of John C, Fremont, the
"Pathfinder," and Kit Carson; the
noted scout, returned to Los Angeles
after an absence oC seventy years and
for the first time in his long life saw
.in aeroplane, lie was permitted to sit
In the aviator's seal and hold the wheel
which controls it when In flight. But
Chief lodine managed to avoid expres
ions of surprise at the wonder city of
stone, brick, concrete and marble that
had replaced the humble adobe pueblo
of Other days. And he restrained him
self, also,, when he saw the aeroplanes
(lying like great lirds above Domln
guez Held. "■
Three hundred boosters came from
San Diego to see the events of San
Diego day at the Held. A sqtiad of
sailors from the torpedo fleet came up
on the special train. "With them was
Chief lodine, who bore a letter from
Ulysses S. Grant, jr., head of the Pan
ama-Pacific exposition committee, to
Glenn Curtlss, extending the freedom
of the city of San Diego to the noted
aviator and a hearty Invitation to visit
tin. southern harbor and continue his
experiments in the navigation of the
CHIKI' is SILENT OBSERVER
The sailors, led by the San Diego
band, marched on the field as a body- '
guard to the old scout and were soon ]
busy examining the Wright, Cur
tiss and Blerlot machines, while Chief
lodine delivered the letter with which
he had been intrusted. After march
ing up and down the Held a few times
while the band played "Dixie" and the |
"Star Spangled Banner," the San Diego
"boosters" returned to the stands to
watch the special program which had
been arranged for their entertainment.
The old chief, hero of a hundred bat
tles, who still can remember the oc
casion of the first raisins of the Amer
ican flag over San Diego, preserved
his stoicism even when confronted with
the machines of the air, but watched
with interest the evolutions which the |
aviators were performing around the
course. His face betrayed no emotion,
no outward manifestation of excite
ment or wonder appeared, but silently
he watched the rise and the fall of the
The San Diego boosters carried large
pennants, on which was Inscribed "San
Diego." While they were waving to
and fro in the grandstand Brooktns
SWOoped down and showered carnations
on them, amid the cheers of the thou
sands present. ■;''■'
ORIGIN or Indian* name
Chief lodine was horn in a tepee In
Oswego, N. T.i eighty-three y>ars ago.
His mother was the daughter of Chief
Mount Pleasant and his father a
French trapper. His grandparents on
his father's side came to America with
Marquis de Lafayette. While yet a
baby ho attracted the attention of some
white men, who asked if the baby had
had iodine poured on him.' The name
lodine was given him soon afterward.
When a boy lodine was sent to Now
York to his uncle, a Mohawk Dutch
man, as lodine describes him, named
Jacob Vosburgh. Voaburgh was a pilot
and put lodine to work on his boats.
His treatment was so brutal that
lodine ran away and shortly afterward
engaged with Fremont at St. Louis,
who then was recruiting his pathflnd
ing party to cross the far west In lay-
Ing out a trail.
"I was in Old Town — then San Diego
—with Fremont in 1846," said Chief
lodine, "when the first United States
flag was raised in that harbor, and l
have had my share in making the first
roads in this state."

such a name for himself in his flight!

if Hubert Latham, the famoua
French ai lator who recently dis-
Ungulshed himself by shooting a
dvi k while caroming through the
air above the ocean, repeats that
feat in this county he will have the
law after him.
Although Latham performed bis
feat in the Interests of scientific
flying In the air he neglected to
attend to the little legal matter of
obtaining a state license to hunt,
and so ain-ady ha« laid himself
liable to Jirrost and linn for his
clover work as ii nlmrod of cloud

at Its own game, but VV. J. I lurm,
