Airship Makes Successful
Trip over New York.
New Ycdrk. 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
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
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

In triumph, While hundreds fought
for the pra ge of bearing aloft the

' 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
