AS FACTOR IN WAl

Fort Monroe, Va., Nov. 14.-Aeria'
navigation proved today that It is E
factor which must be dealt with ir
the naval tactics of the world's future
if the successful flights made by Eu
gene B. Ely in a Curtiss biplane fron
the deck of the crusier Birminghan
can be taken as a criterion. Fron

sudden farewell of the Birminghan
he was a lost speck on the easteri
horizon and had landed safely on Wil

Dares the Weather.
Intermittent rain throughout thi
day, small hail showers, and continu.
es fog, almost compelled the aviatoi

~Ely proved today that it is possibli

"When Mr. Ely flew with such eas;

When he struck the water on div-1

dashed into his face and goggles, So
that for several minutes he could not
see in which direction he was going.
He had planned to take a somewhat
different course from that which he
actually followed and land a little
further to the north. The greatest
height he attained was estimated at
about 500 feet.
Due to Miscalculation.
His striking the water, he said af

r Navy to Keep It as Torpedo Station.
Department to Save $300,000 of
Washington, Nov. 14.-Secretary
Meyer, who has just returned to
Washington from an extensive trip
of inspection of the navy yards and
stations, managed to make his trip
highly profitadble by cutting off $300,
000 of naval expenditures in these
yards. The secretary is preparing his
recommendations to congress regard
ing the discon+inuance of some of the
navy yards and substantial improve
ment of the others.
It is probable that the Charleston
yard will continue to be merely a tor
pedo station as experts have esti
mated it would cost not less than $2,
000,000 to open up a channel by which
modern heavy draught battleships
could reach the yard from the sea
I while the appropriation of many thou
sands of dollars annually would be
required to remove the silt which finds
its way into the channel.
The yard of Portsmouth, N. H., has
a splendid dry dock capable of tak
ing in the largest battleships, and
therefore it is not apt to be closed.
For the same reason the Boston yard
with its two docks will certainly be
maintained in full operation. There
may be considerable curtailment of
,the activity at some of the other At
lantic gulf docks.
STRONG MAN DROPS DEAD.

It is said of himn that he could lift a
barrel of flour and hold it at arm's
