FALLS 0VES, 500

Denver, Colo., Nov. IS. Ralph
Johnstone, the brilliant young aviator,
holder of the -world's altitude record,
dropped like a plummet yesterday
from a height of S00 feet into the en
closure at Overland Park aviation
f.eld and was instantly killed.
A the spectators crowded about the
wreck his body lay beneath the en
gine of the biplane -with the white
planes that, had failed him in his
time of need, wrapped about it like
a shroud. Nearly every bone in his
body was broken.
He had gambled with death once too
often. Johnstone attempted to giv
the thousands of spectators an extra
thrill with his most daring feat, the
spiral glide which made the Wright
aviators famous. The spectators got
their thrill, but it cost Johnstone his

the aviation meet will be continued.

In the first flight, when he was in

Johnstone rose again, and after a few
circuits of the course to gain height,
headed toward the foothills. Still is
cending, he swept back In a big circle
and, as he reached the north end of
the enclosure, he started his spiral
glide. He was then at the altitude of
about S00 feet. With his planes tilted
at an angle-of almost 90 degrees, he
scooped down in a narrow circle, tho

The Fatal Fall.
As he started the second circle, the
middle spur, which braces the le't
side of the lower plane, gave way aud
the wing tips of both upper and lowr
planes- folded up as though they had
been hinged. For a second Johrlstone
attempted to right the plane by warp
ing the other wing tip. Then the hor
rified spectators saw the plane swerve
like a wounded bird and plunge
straight toward the earth.
Johnstone was thrown from his seat
as the nose of the plane swung down
ward. He caught on one of the wire
stays between the planes and grasped
one of the wooden braces of the upper
pla-ne with both hands.
Then working with hands and feet
he fought by main strength to warp
the planes so that their surfaces mignt
catch the air and check his descent.
For a second it seemed to the winte

Machine Turns Over. !
The hope was only momentary, how-
ever, for when only about 300 fept I
from the ground, the machine turned
completely over and the frightened
spectators fled wildly as the broken

fighting grimly in its mesh of wires !

over the big field.

when sensation mad brutes, both men

stone's body. Before doctors or police
could reach the scene one man had
torn this splinter from the crushed
and mai'gled body and run gleefully

its end. Frantic, the crowd tore away
the canvass from over his body and
fought for the very gloves that had

Physicians declare death must have
been instantaneous, as Johnstone's
back, neck and both legs were broken,

Hoxsey In Air at Time.
Arch Hoxsey, who in a previous
flight yesterday afternoon had readi
ed an altitude of 2500 feet, had risen
just before Johnstone began his fatal
glide and was in the air when the ac
cident took place. As he swung
around the other end of the course he
saw that Johnstone had fallen anl
guided his machine directly over the
body of his friend in descending as
soon as he could bring his plane to

Thursday m alighting, Jcfanstone
broke the left wing tip of his machine
against the fence. It was the same tiu
that gave way Thursday and caused
his death. Thursday when he started
on his first flight one of the wheels
on which the aeroplane runs along
the ground gave way and had to be
replaced. As he prepared to start for
his last flight, a fox terrier that haf
broken through the fence, got direct
ly in front of the machine and, bark
ing frantically, refused to be driven
away. As the machine rolled down the
track one of the wings swept above
the dog, which pursued the machine
until it lifted into the air.
In discussing his flights in this rare
atmosphere Wednesday, Johnstone de
clared he would attempt no "stunts"
here, as he considered it too danger

he had solved the problems of this al-

United States Secret Service

San Antonio, Tex, No. IS. A gen

set for Sunday, Nov. 20, according to
federal secret service men. Nogales is
headquarters of the junta operating in
Sonora. It has been in existence since

yet the revolutionists have committed
no act that can be constituted as overt,
under the federal statutes. Consign
ments of arms are under surveillance
in San Antonio and elsewhere. When
an attempt is made to take them
across the border, they will be seized
and arrests made.
According to federal officers here,
the revolutionary propaganda is:
The release of all political prisoners.
The welcoming of all political exiles.
The establishment of a popular gov
ernment. The capture of all customs houses.

i Report From Marfa That
Armed Mexicans Are Ap

SCOUTS ARE SENT
OUT TO REPORT
Marathon. Tex., Nov. 18. Its citizens
armed and greatly excited, Marathon ia
prepared to meet a band of 60 armed
Mexicans reported as marching on this
town from the Mexican border.
Whether it is another "Rock Springs
scare" or whether the armed Mexicans
are really in existence, time only can
tell. The town was under armed guard,
all last night and again today. Scoutaj
sent out yesterday afternoon to in
vestigate the report that Mexicans
were approaching, will not return
until about 4 oclock to make a report.
The report that armed Mexicans
were headed for this place came
from a deputy sheriff at Marfa, it ia
said, but why a Marfa man should de
cide that this city was to be made tha
point of attack even if the Mexicans
had orossed over, is not known. Ifl
they crossed near Marfa, there are sev-,
eral towns nearer to the Mexicans
than Marathon, Including Alpine; it1
they crossed the river opposite this
point, just how Marfa learned of it,
is a mystery. ,
Anyhow, the people here are greatly
excited. As soon as the report wast
received here, lookouts were posted
near the river.
A dispatch froi Marfa yesterday
afternoon informed the local police
that a party of 60 armed Mexicans had
crossed the Rio Grande and were
headed for Marathon -with the evident
intention of causing trouble. The po
lice here at once started four scouts
in the direction of the river and mean
while began taking the best possible
measures for the protection of the
town should the report prove true.
The more conservative believe that
If there is any such band of Mexican
in the vicinity, they are robbers or per
haps Mexicans who are organizing as
revolutionists In Mexico rather than to
do harm to Texans.
