situation in New York state and Ohio
sharing almost equally in the interest
displayed by the president as to pres

To Lloyd C. Griscom of the New
York county republican committee, Mr.
Taft expressed anew the hope that
Henry L. Stimson, the repuolican nom
inee for governor in this state, would
be successful. Some of the leaders
who have seen the president have

The reports from Ohio, brought to
the president by former Governor My

cob G. Schmidtlapp of Cincinnati, were
net enthusiastic. ,
To many close observers, probably
the most significant feature of the
president's stay bore is the fact that
during the last two days Colonel Theo
dore Roosevelt has been at Oyster Bay
only 33 miles from New York and
so far as known no communication
whatever passed between him and Mr.
It was reported there might be a
meeting between the two old friends.
This was based on the statement at

TAUGHT A LESSON
Wellman and Assistants Beady
to Profit by Attempted
WILL EXPERIMENT AGAIN
Must Find Other Means to Compen
sate for Expansion and Con
traction of Gas.
New York, Oct. 20. Walter Well
man and his five companions were
landed here yesterday afternoon by
the steamship Trent, which picked
them up at sea after they had aban
doned their dirigible balloon America
and failed in the first attempt ever
made to cross the Atlantic through the

cal injury that resulted from their long
voyage of approximately 900 miles and
a rescue the like of which Is unknown
to all history.
None of the aeronauts expressed re
gret for the loss of the America. They
agreed that it had served its purpose
and taught its lesson. All stand ready
to renew the attempt as soon as Well
man and his engineers find a way to
conquer the difficulties that brought
their first trip to its thrilling end last
Tuesday morning 400 miles southeast
of Sandy Hook.
Wellman Explain Failure.
Standing on the deck of-the Trent,
clad in the same suit of khaki he wore
when he and his crew launched the
America last Saturday at Atlantic
City, Wellman made this statement:
"We thought we could not get along
without the equiiibrator. Now we find
we could not. pet along with it. Our
plans for the future are indefinite un
til we find something that will do what
we thought the equiiibrator would do."
Series of Tank.
The "equiiibrator" to which Well
man, attributes the failure of his voy
age was the series of tanks containing
gasoline which floated in the water at
tached to the airship by a long rope.
Its purpose, in addition to storing gas
oline and serving as a wireless
'ground," was to keep the balloon
steady, compensating for the expan
fcln " contraction ot gas aue to
cuarigijs in temperature, wnicn would
have made the America rise or sink

The America's experience proved
that this floating tail, jerking at the
delicately poised airship, made it im
possible to steer or make headway in
a desired direction, and severely weak
ened the structure. To find another
means of compensating for this un-
avoiaii-oio cnange in me volume or gas
i3 the problem to which Wellman and
his engineer, Melvin Yaniman will now
devote their attention.
The direct cause of abandoning the
America was the exhaustion of the
supply of gasoline, which had been
thrown" out to save the ship. When
the crew abandoned the balloon only
enough was left to have lasted about
