BOND FOR MACHINE
Bleriot Monoplane of British
Aviator Radley Arrives for
The new Bleriot monoplane, which is
owned by Radley. the British aviator
who will fly in tho Tanforan meet to
be held in January under the auspices
of San Francisco merchants, arrived in
this, city yesterday. Radley forfeited
54,500, which was the amount of his
bond with the custom house authori
ties so that he might enter the con
test. It was necessary for the foreign
aviator to deposit $4,600 with the gov
ernment in bringing his machines into
the. country free of duty on condition
that it would remain here only a Etated
time. That period has expired.
It wag freely expressed yesterday by
persons who know Radley that they
would not be surprised -if the daring
avator should assemble his machine at
the depot and fly to the aviation field.
It also is expected that Radley will
furnish a number of sensation feats,
f.uch as have startled the public wJiere
ever'he has exhibited.
ADMIRAL MILTOX TO FLY
Rear Admiral John B. Milton. U. S. N..
retired, formerly commandant of the
naval training station at Yerba Buena
island, has announced his intention of
going up in a machine at the Tanforan
meet. Admiral Milton has a host of
friends in local society as well* as in
the service, and inasmuch as his flights
at the meet will be inspired by a scien
tific interest in aerial navigation " he
will undoubtedly be one of the most
interesting figures on the field.
Major Samuel Rober of the United
States signal corps, who is chairman of
the national council of the Aero club of
America, has wired the aviation com
mittee as follows, In response to a
telegram requesting that dates be ad
justed to conform to those of the Los
Angeles meet now In progress:

tered as competitors in the inventors'
class are the following:
Fong-Guey of Berkeley, who has in
vented a modified biplane and con^
structed it himself at a cost of $7,000,
has entered the lists. Fong is one of
the best known and perhaps the most
picturesque of the aviators around the
bay and is the lirst man of the Chinese
race with a record of successful flights
to his credit. ' ; >
C. E. Lamburth of 118 Capp street
will offer a multiplane, a machine of
16 planes, "with' a surface area of 564
square feet; a length of 40 feet and a
breadth of 40 feet; an engine of his
own design, 4 cycle, 40 horsepower,
watercooled. and equipped with one
propeller, 8 feet In diameter, and 4^&
foot pitch. A parachute apparatus*will
insure an easy descent in case of
mechanical derangement and a number
of technical points are introduced with
the claim that they solve problems
W. A. Merrill, a memb*r of the
board of governors of the Pacific Aero
club, will take out a combined lighter
than air and heavier than air machine
that is expected to prove one of the
sensations of the meet.
W. C. Wheeler, secretary of th« Pa
cific Aero club, and Cleve T- Shaffer,
former secretary of that organization,
have constructed machines of their own
and intend to try for prizes.
Ralph Sheaf cf Oakland will enter

IT IS an age of specialization. The statement is frequently writtfen and
serves to introduce all sorts of^subjects. This time Christmas— a day late,
but considered retrospectively as having marked an innovation in giving,
or rather a' development of the art. Givers are specializing. The wordjis
stupidly . pedantic, suggesting spectacled intellectuality, but the" idea is. a
really charming one, involving velvet l orchids and chiffon, roses and silver
vanity boxes. - -i.
All the girl friends of one debutante received. French flowers yesterday
with her card. '. There were big. American beauties, thick, with shaded satin
petals, to be worn on evening gowns or furs, or under a willow plume, and
violet velvet orchids wonderfully made for the .same adorning. _ They were
attractive gifts, and received with delight, and the giver had spent no hours of
weary wondering over them. • . \u0084 • -''" .:*.\u25a0-
Another girl with a score of feminine friends' to be remembered gave
scents to all of them— a half dozen long ribbon dress sachets to hang in as
many gowns, for each of the maids and matrons onvher list.
One young matron "specialized" in the French brocade things that offered
a pretty variety of picture frames' and boxes, and another gave embroidered
bags. "Next year the system may be extended to include men in its benefits.
Brothers and fiances, or husbands, might all be disposed of with cigarette
cases or any other single commodity that ingenuity suggested, if there were
any other. ; Anyway,: one decision will end it. \u25a0 :; , • . .-;"•".>
Advantages of the new way are obvious, and;.there is the precedent of
Queen Victoria, ;who specialized in India shawls. One may guess'the count
less hours of pondering on what to give. people that reduced' Victoria to a
final decision of shawls for them all— from the queen of Madagascar to: a
German envoy. It was not discriminating, but assuredly one of the_ things
that prolonged her life. However, without the innumerable responsibilities'
of royal bestowing, that justified Victoria in her shawls, the new phase of
Christmas giving has certain broad distinctions to be regarded. An orchid
for a man, for instance, would be in excusable. •? - J

CHEER PARK BOYS
Generous Response Made to
Sidney S. Peixotto's Appeal
for Financial Aid
Christmas brought gladness to the
hearts of Sidney S. Peixotto and hlg
Columbia park boys, due to the re
ceipt of generous gifts of money in
answer to the appeal made by Peixotto
In an open letter on December 4 for
financial aid in maintain this meritori
ous club. A fine new clubhouse is alsg
one of the possibHlties of. the near
future, thank? to a public spirited
In th? letter Peixotto stated that for
the Jast 20 yearp he had devoted him
self to the boys' club, but that the time
had come when he lacked the money
to continue the good work. He said
that if 1,000 persons would contribute
only $10 apiece he would give his serv
ices and maintain the olub for five
years more, but that if the money were
not the club would have
to gp out of existence. This letter
attracted the -attention of a number of
local capitalists an<*\ "\u25a0philanthropists,'
and the., response, was prompt and lib
eral. As a Christinas jjift to the <boys
a large sum of money was sent to
Peixotto from various, sources in vary
ing- arnotints, which will go a great
way remedying the deflqlt and
constitute a good , start in answering
the appeal for aid. ' '•
W. 3. Bourn 'gave ., it Jb said, 51,000,
and Templeton Crocker, a like amount.
Mrs. James C. Jordan : of 1998 Broad
way, widow of the real. estate operator
%vho died recently, has : made generous
offers of aid, and, 1 it is said, Is con
templating.the erection of a new. elab
orate building ifor. the boys'"club. :.
Many other contributions and offers
of aid -have., been made to the Columbia
Park boys'/ club,- the great .value -of

aware of its influence for good, In

and : improving | occupations in- a'; good

zation was not in '*; good financial condi
tion was not generally known before
the publication of 'ePixotto'ss letter.
Although the response made to Peix
otto's appeal is gratifying, tthe amount
thus far, received ; still h falls consider

IN NEW ZEALAND
Overland Car Favorably Im
presses W. H. Long, Promi-
J. A II if,'- "* ;;^S
nent Auckland Engineer
That '-popular, priced American cars
are : rapidly gaining favor in foreign
'fields is evidenced' by the fact that
W. H. Long, a prominent \u25a0 engineer / of
Auckland, N. Z., where heretofore pub
lic opinion has been prejudiced against
anything but the expensive European
cars, recently made : the following
statement after disassembling and; per
sonally inspecting anVOverland car: "I
have : examined thie gearing parts, to
gether with the general arrangement
of machinery of the Overland car. The
transmission; gear throughout is well
designed and all gears well cut from
high 'grade steel. I noticed that \the
planetary change speed gear runs in
an oil tight gear box. This is a great
advantage over the ordinary type of
planetary gear. The three point.sus
pension also la a good point. Also the
arrangements of the tubular radial
bar, in which the driving 'shaft is in
closed, and its universal Jointed con
nection to the clutch is far above the
general arrangement of this type of
car. There should also be a high pro
portion of ; the. power generated by the
motor transmitted to ,the road wheels,
which" you would probably find to be
the case if you tested it against other
types under similar conditions. The
pistons, pins and parts of motor are
well finished; the arrangement of pis
ton rings is good, .also the fact of
cylinders being cast singly reduces risk
of fracture and distortion in casting
and manufacture, also in replacing
through breakages, etc. In writing
this I feel certain of the support of
any other engineer who has had actual
experience in manufacture and repair- I
ing. It is, as you are well aware, in
the repair shop where one sees the
various weaknesses and defects of the
many different systems of power trans
mission adopted at the present time."

The seemingly assured great future
for the aeroplane promises a trade of
r considerable im
portance in aero
plane tires. The
> strain on aeroplane
.. \u25a0 tires is severe. The
sudden. momentum in starting and the
pronounced shock In landing are both
features that tell on the endurance
qualities of the tire,
- Glenn Curtiss and Colonel Frank
Johnson are strong l n their praise of
the Diamond aeroplane tire. Curtiss
also is a satisfied user of Diamond auto
mobile tires. .
_ Among other leading aviators using
Diamond aeroplane tires are the Wright
brothers, Burgess and Kirchener. •
On Their Tires
_ H- L. Ovvesney, coast manager of the
wlnton motor car company, In discuss
, ing the motor car
"Since the auto-
„ „ mobile manufactur
", • , ' \u25a0 ers have established
branch houses throughout the different
parts of the country, there is not so
much, heard regarding the sale of cars
mvi c delivered several months later.
This Is caused by the manufacturers
having their Btock distributed to the
branches as soon as bull t and not wait
hj.? tor deposits to come to- them to
guarantee the acceptance of the cars.
It does not mean that there is any less
demand for the cars, but the b-uslness
Is on a more substantial basis and does
not require the manufacturer to put
cars out and have credits scattered all
over the country. The Winton motor
car company was the pioneer of this
branch of the business and the plan has
proved so successful that the company
has many imitators."

bilists for a time recently, the four
\u25ba pathfinders w ho
compose the party
in the Ohio car now
\u25ba en route from New
York to San Fran
cisco joined a bucket brigade and aided
in saving from total destruction a barn
on the plantation of J. M. Ilodgins. ten
miles north of Texarkana. As the au
tomobillsts were nearing Hodglns' place
they saw flames bursting from the roof
of the barn. Leaving the Ohio car at
.the roadside they grasped buckets and
rushed to the assistance of Hodgins
and several negro hands who were
fighting to check the course of the fire.
Fred D. Clark, one of the drivers of
the Ohio car. entered the blazing barn
to liberate several mules and horses.
He discovered Hodgins' 3 year ol<J
daughter, Susie, playing in the hay,
unmindful of her- danger. Clark
grasped the child and hurried to safety
just as the roof -fell in.
After the fire, which did $200 worth
of damage, was extinguished, the auto
niobilists proceeded to Texarkana.
