SEVERAL SHIPS ENTERED
Crack Sky Travelers of the Curtiss
Crew to Appear In Daily Exhibi
tions Here Plans Made.
With the closing of the - contract
,for flights of the Glenn H. Curtiss
aeroplanes during the ., week, plans
- for the third annual show wider the
auspices of the Rock Island Expo
sition company practically are com
pleted. . .
In aiming to outshine preceding
undertakings, the exposition direct
ors uus year, with the cooperation of
the Rock Island club and the Rock
Island Business Men's association,
decided to try to land the sensation
al novefty of the present decade
the successful airship.
Mr.. Curtiss. who is first among
those of the world who have master
ed the science of sky traveling, is the
aviator whose ships are to be oper
ated in Rock Island. Curtis is fill
ing few engagements outside of the
larger cities, owing to the stiff re
quirements of his contract.
V Gaarutee of 5,O00.
His' manager informed the local
committee that carried on the nego
tiations that a $5,000 guarantee
would be necessary before a deal for
the flying of the aeroplanes here
couid be closed. At noon yesterday
the money was practically all on de
posit at a Rock Island bank, again'
goes after anything it generally wins
Rock Island will be the only city
in the Mississippi valley that will en
joy the distinction of holding an av
iation meet this year, and this of it
self Is' enough to assure the bringing
here of visitors from cities upwards
of 100 miles distant during the week
of the exposition.
Under the terms of the contract
with Mr. Curtiss, there are to be
flights every afternoon throughout
the week from the exposition park.
Aeroplanes Will Race.
Two or more aeroplanes will be
assigned here for the meet, and these
will engage in races for prizes to
be offered by the exposition com
pany. Each aeroplane will be op
erated by an aviator trained under
Mr. Curtiss and the equal in all
probability of the latter in the mas
tery of the' machine. During the
week it is promised also that the avi
ators will try to break records estab
lished at former meets. The aero
planes will be raised from specially
constructed runways at tlfe center
of the exposition grounds. It will
be necessary to remove a portion of
the west side fence in order to af
ford room for this runway, which
in saving money do so by first
forming the good habit of sav

It is more than easy to form the
habit of spending but to save

of certain farm lands- near Barstow,
returned a verdict, giving to the de
fendants $3,708 for the land which is

the farm in question, anad after that
many witnesses were introduced by

about the same as was awarded to the
defendants. Jackson, Hurst & Staf

Roosevelt, and deplores the "unfound
ed assertions concerning bis attitude."
Griirom ccawt "Old Guard.
Mr. Griscom, in a statement giving
out the Taft letter, is outspoken in de
nouncing the "old guard," which he
accuses of having played politics with
the president's name. He adds that
these men do not seek republican suc
cess to wish "to perpetuate their own
control at any cost to the party."
"Lastly, he charges that in the last two
legislatures there has been disgraceful
alliances between Tammany hall and
some of the "old guard" leaders.
Roosevelt Not Talkative.
Mr. Roosvelt did not have much to
say when shown the Taft message at
Oyster Bay. He apparently was glad
to see that the peril of a break was
ended, however, and Indicated that a
fuller reply might be expected from
him in the near future. His opening
sentence in the short, formal statement
given put was:
"I am glad to see President Taft's
letter and am pleased with it."
Following this Mr. Roosevelt ex
plains what had been the course of his
negotiations with the organisation and
how, after his successive rebuffs, he
had felt that further overtures could
not consistently come from him. His
future attitude he does not define, be
cause he is as yet uncertain what ef
fect on public sentiment President
Taft's letter will have when it has been
read and digested by the voters of the
Taft'a Letter to Grfaeom.
The following letter from President
Taft to Lloyd C. Griscom,,president of
the New York republican county com
mittee, was given out here by Mr.
Griscom: . .

that he vice' president's name was
presented to defeat Colonel Roosevelt
in accordance with your wish. A mem
ber of the state committee declared to
me before the meeting that Mr. Sher
man's candidacy had been arranged
with you by telephone the previous
day. Efforts have been made to create
an Impression that you favor a partic
ular candidate for election as state
chairman! I want you to know that
the injection of the name -of a high
member of your administration into a
factional conflict has produced a most
complicated situation, and the absence
of any authoritative information as to
your attitude Is seriously misleading
many republicans and inspiring a
movement for progressive party leac
lership and clean government In this
state. I know you desire us to nave a
fair field and hope that this may be
made clear to the public.
Does Not Oppose Roosevelt.
"Tae suggestion that I have ever ex
pressed a wish to defeat Mr7 Roosevelt
for the temporary chairmanship of the
convention or have ever taken the
slightest step to do so is wholly un
true. I never heard Mr. Sherman's
name suggested as temporary chair
man of the state convention until I
saw in the newspapers of Aug. 16 that
he had been selected at the meeting
of the committee. When you called at
my house Saturday evening, Aug. 13,
you told me that Mr. Roosevelt intend
ed to go to the convention as a dele
gate, and you suggested incidentally
his being made temporary chairman
a suggestion to which I acquiesced. It
did not occur to me that any one could
oppose it. j

"This was the first time the subject
of the temporary chairmanship was
mentioned to me by any one. You
did not ask me to take any action
whatever with respect to it. After a
full discussion of the Now Yrk state
situation I drafted in your presence
the following telegram and sent it to
- 'Beverly, Mass., Aug,14. 1910.
" 'Hon. James S. Sherman,' vice
president, Utlca, N. Y.:
" 'Please say to Ward and Woodruff
that I have had a long conference with
Griscom. He confirms my judgment
already expressed to you that the
whole situation in New York may be
saved without humiliation to any one
and with victory for the party by a full
conference with Mr. Roosevelt and rea
sonable concessions with reference to
platform and candidates.
" 'The thing of all others that ought
to be avoided is a controversy in the
convention. I am told by Mr. Griscom.
that suclra conference with Mr. Roose
velt might conveniently be had and
would be welcomed by him before the
state committee, meets on Tuesday.
Hope you will be able to report satin
factory solution when you come oa
Wednesday. WILLIAM H. TAFT.'
Meation of Root's Name.
"On the afternoon of Monday, Aug.
15, Mr. Sherman telephoned me from
New York and for the first time ap
prised me of the fact that there was a
proposal to oppose Mr. Roosevelt for
the temporary chairmanship, and that
with Mr. Root's name. No other name
than Mr. Root's was mentioned. 1 pro
tested against the idea of a contest on
such a matter, peremptorily declined
to be drawn into a fight against Mr.
Roosevelt and again renewed my ur
gent advice that there be prompt and
full personal conference with Mr.
Roosevelt before the committee meet
ing, with a view to securing harmony
and victory for the party.
"Mr. Sherman called upod me here
on the 17th Inst., to meet an engage
ment of a week's standing made with
him and Mr. Loudenslager to discuss
the congressional campaign text-book.
Mr.Loudenslager was prevented from
coming by an illness. .
Deplored Result. '
During the conference with Mr.
Sherman I told bim that I deplored the
result of the meeting of the New York
state committee., because unless the
break were repaired, it meant division
New York republicans and
probable defeat. Upon leaving me Mr.
Sherman agreed to go into a confer
ence with Mr Roosevelt, provided ue
were Invited to do so, with a view to
adjusting the situation, if possible,
even at that late date. Nicholas Long
worth was present and said he would
send a telegram to bring about a con
ference. What the result has been I
do not know.
"Finally In your telegram received
this morning you state that efforts
have been made to create the impres
sion that I favor a particular candidate
for election as state chairman. This la
absolutely untrue. I bave expressed
no opinion on the subject since an ef
