County Will License Circuses. At
-.he meeting of the board of supervis
ors just ended, the principal matter
taken up for consideration was the
question of licensing circuses. The
state law permits counties to collect
.icenses from all circuses performing
A'ithin their boundaries and leaves it
o the discretion of the supervisors as
jo how high the tax shall be. The
local board of supervisors is agreed
that a license shall be assessed. This
discussion now concerns only the
amount to be collected.

a like nature. The capital stock is

fered is paid up and all but 50 shares
of the common at a par value of $100

local. No. 5C3. of the International
Brotherhood of Teamsters was arrest
ed by Officer Mundt at the request of
the members of the union. Mr. Bene
gar was accused of the serious crime
of larceny by embezzlement. It is
claimed that the officers' accounts were
not right and that he was short about
$140. Yesterday the officers of the
union entered into consultation with
County. Attorney A. W. Hainan n and
later with Benegar himself, who had
been under arrest. The result of the
conference was that Mr. Benegar was
given an opportunity to secure the
money with which to settle the matter
with the understanding that, if he did
this, the case was not to be prosecuted.

street and Fourth avenue. Dr. P. L.

complicated matters so that there was
considerable delay In closing. Now

cording to all of the terms proposed
by Mr. Mayer and indeed has gone even
further than in his first proposal. The
sale now includes the transfer of all

was the oldest of eight children. In the

DOCTORS UP IN A BALLOON
I'irat Aaoennion In Intereat of Phyal
A balloon trip which Is expected to
Lave wide results In the aeronautic
world was recently made at Philadel
phia by Dr. Samuel Jottinger and Dr.
T. Chalmers Fulton, both well known
physicians of that city and graduates
xt the Jefferson Medical college, says a
Philadelphia special dispatch to the
New York World.
Meteorological experiments have been
made from balloons for several years,
but this trip was, so far as is known,
the first balloon ascension ever made
for the purpose of physiological re
search. The aeronauts landed In a field four
miles southwest of Media, Pa., twenty
miles from their starting point, shortly
after 7 o'clock in the evening, after be
ing up nearly five hours. The landing
was without mishap or Incident, the
balloon settling easily to the ground.
They reached, an altitude of more than
three miles and say that the views
above the clouds surpass description.
They pronounce their experiments
very successful and say that they have
collected data which is destined to have
a wide Influence on the aeronautical
world. Experiments tried alternately
on each other at high altitudes prove
the theory that the rapid changes In al
titude that attend ballooning are bene
ficial to nervous diseases of the eye
and to respiratory diseases. They also
made observations as to the effects on
The balloon was lent by members of
the Aero club of New York. It Las a
capacity of 5",000 cubic feet. Ture
coal gas, which is much more buoyant
than the commercial illuminant of coal
and water gas mixed, was used.
Trofessor Charles King, Philadel
phia's "grand old man" of aeronautics,
superintended the preparations. It took
three hours to till the bag. The two
aeronauts took tip a large assortment
of Instruments for performing their ex
periments. The instruments for the
meteorological experiments were lent
by the United States weather bureau
and the other set, all delicate Instru
ments, Is the property of medical so
cieties In Philadelphia.
