August 23- For ffty minutes to-day hundreds of thousands ot'New Yorkers witnessed 'ihe most wonderful and thrilling sight that a century has afforded to the Western world. A. Roy Knabenshue, the intrepid young Western aeronaut, made the first official sUniceesfu ascent and flight over the city in his airship, following his preliminary test on Sunday. The ascent was, made at exactly 2:10 ocloek. The airship rose to a maximum height about 5,000 feet. It soared with the lightness of a bird and the steadiness of a canoe on the placid 'aters of an inland lake. Its sailed with and against a strong wind, "responding perfectly to every movenmeat of its big, rectangular rudder. S •Aecross town and down town the fearless young pilot sent it, while seemingly every able-bodied man, woman and child in New York watehed his every movement. He went aq ir south as twenty-third street, where finding the wind too stra ng 1* encircle the Flatifon building h turned and sailed back, landiagon the Southield in Central Park, aIs idat the cheers of 50,000 peopiC. Sores caught him there .uid ;.hgi, d hm on their dhoulders In triumph, While hundreds fought for the pra ge of bearing aloft the - ;as. bin thne tented enclosure at ' ev street and Centr~al P where the start was nmade. the landing was ,effected at eatzUy 3 o'clook. After the voyage Knabenshue said: s,'lverything went as smooth ly as f I were making a voyage on a qugsm ocean, the ship was at all ti.e. s :t.der perfect control, and I bad a u as.delightful trip 5000 feet above: º York.' abvei ew york.
