CURTISS'S BIPLANE BEING RUN ON TO BEACH AT ATLANTIC CITY.
USURY CHARGES MADE
< "ntlnurU from first |v-»c
gage 0. per cent pokl bonds of the road
to secure it.
American Piano Company in Case.
In October, nonp of the notes having
been paid. Chapman applied for re
newals, and was met with the proposi
tion, according t<> his answer, that he
buy from the company for $12,000 200
shares of the American Piano Company
common stock and pay a bonus of $2,
000. Chapman declares the piano stock
was and is worthless and absolutely un
marketable. He includes the price he
paid for it and the bonus in his charges
of usury.
Including, then, all these items and
Interest his indebtedness stood in Octo
ber, 1909, at $66,243 78. He gave the
company a note for this amount. To
pecure it, he says, he put up collateral,
besides that originally applied to the
$27,000 loan, consisting of five thousand
shares of Standard Motor Construction
Company Ftoc.k. one hundred United
Surety Company stock, one hundred
shares of the TVhllden and Hancock
Metropolitan Insurance Agency stock,
two hundred shares of American Piano
Company common, and $20,000 Granite
Spring Water Company 6 per cent
bonds.
In December the debt against Chap
man had increased to $67,009 23. He
executed a new note for that amount
In this same month Joseph B. Reichman
succeeded C. C Dickinson as president
of the company. Mr. Reichman said
yesterday that he did not like the look
of the Chapman debt and that as Boon
as possible after taking office he gave
the debtor ten days in -which to settle.
As Chapman failed to do so he ordered
a portion of the collateral sold, and as a
result of the sale credited the broker
with $9,000. In April, of this year, the
company brought suit against Chapman
for the remainder of $58,000.
Chapman charges that the company
"pretended" to sell all of his collateral
except the Jive thousand shares of
Standard Motor Construction Company
stock and bid It in for itself. As a
matter of fact, he says, it continued, to
hold it against his note. He therefore
ignores the charge of $58,000, and in
computing his indebtedness starts- -with
$67,009 23 as a basis.
From this amount the defendant asks
the court to subtract the alleged usury
of $17,(325 and an additional item of
i (5,500. This item, he declares, is money
of his own on deposit with the trust
department of the company.
What Chapman Offers to Do.
On August 3, 1909. Chapman says, he
drew a check for $7,000 and deposited It
with the trust department of the com
pany in payment for future services as
trustee in connection with the mortgages
to be placed on the TitusyiHe properties.
This was all a part of the holding com
pany scheme. The broker contends now
that only $1,500 of this was expended,
and that the remainder should be de
ducted from his indebtedness.
In short, then, be offers to pay the
Carnegie Trust Company $43,884 23 if it
will return him his collateral. And he
says be will hand over to Wellborn the
(400,000 Titus vi lie Northern Railway
bonds if the latter will pay him $25,000.
/ Wellborn has retained to represent
him the firm of Putney, Twombly &-
Putney, Of No. 2 Rector street, and
Abraham Levy, of No. 61 Park Row.
Mr. Levy said last night:
"There seems to be a determined ef
fort to explain the connection of the
Carnegie Trust Company with this
transaction. I hope they will be able to
make a satisfactory explanation to the
financial world. Mr. Wellborn parted
with $400,000 in valuable securities and
ha* not received 400 cents in return,
with the exception of $25,000. which rep
resented the original loan. lie lias ten
dered the loan originally made end has
demanded the return of his securities.
The tender was declined because the se
curities could not be returned. There
must be some explanation made for the
of some of the collateral
within a month after procuring the orig
inal loan, and some explanation for the
outright pale of some of the same, col
lateral. I shall ask the District At
torney to continue his investigation."
Denies Story of Theft.
The investigation into the bond loan
transaction was begun a week ago, when
Wellborn, through Henry B. Twombly,
his counsel, made his complaint to the
District Attorney. The retention of the
grand jury brought the trouble to light,
and yesterday afternoon broadsides were
published implying that the $400,000 of
Titusville Northern bonds had been
stolen. To this charge President Reich
man of the Carnegie Trust Company, re
nlied in a statement:

partm^nt siprned by "Walther Wolf. Third
Deputy Superintendent, sayingr that the
trust company had on hand at the last
examination as well as yesterday the
$300,000 in bonds hypothecated with it
as collateral. District Attorney Whit
man makes a similar statement.
Counsel Denies Usury.
Ex-Judge William A. Keener, counsel
for the trust company, In refutation of
Chapman's charges of usury, said yes
terday that the company had not profit
ed one cent from the loans above the
legal interest rate.
"Any time." said he, "the Titusville
Northern Railway Company wants to
come up with §25,000 in payment of its
note it can have $200,0<X> of its bonds."
Mr. Keener referred to the note of the
railway company, secured by $200,000
bonds, which Chapman put up as col
lateral against the (27,000 loan. This
the company apparently considers its
own property, following the alleged sale
to itself of a large part of the Chapman
collateral.
The grand jury, it is understood, will
meet again on Tuesday or Wednesday
of next week.

READY FOR CLOAK STRIKE
Preparations Are Completed for
Calling Out 50,000 Workers.
WALKOUT EXPECTED TO-DAY
Hundreds of Employes Gather at
Branch Offices of Union to
Await Orders.
L«arge crowds of cloakmakers gathered
at the various branches of the Brotherhood
of floakmak^rs all day yesterday. The
stairways were choked with them. They
came to find out when the general strike
ot' the cloakmakers would start. Eventually
poHcemen had to be detailed to keep the
crowds moving, especially at the head
quarters of the union. No. 9 Kast 10th
street.
All the employes could learn was that
the strike would be railed soon and that
they would receive pink paper slips telling
them when it was on. They are expected
to report to halla to which they will be
assigned in the slips within two hours after
tho strike order Is received.
A Joint meeting of the executive commit
tee of the union and the strike committee
of forty-five was held in Beethoven Hall
in tho afternoon, at which it was thought
by b'indreds of cloakmakers who waited
outside that the strike would bo declared.
There was no change In the situation when
the meeting was over, but another joint
meeting wlli be held at 6 a. m. to-day,
when It Is believed the strike order calling
out llfty thousand workers will be issued.
Preparations for the strike were com
pleted yesterday. The executive committee'
divided the city for the purpose of the
strike Into seven districts, and engaged a
large hall In each district, where strikers

aged by the union from beginning any new
work, to prevent confusion when the strike
started. He said most of the cloakmakers
were waiting to respond to the strike order,
having aireaoy quit work.
RAILROADS TO PAY FINES

months of that year.
PINCHOT AND LUMBERMEN
Representative Tawney Says He Kept
Lumber Off Free List.
[Ry Tpluktbj? h to The Tribune. ]
St Paul, July 6.— "Halvor Steenerson was
right when he paid that Clifford Pinchot
was the man who kept lumber off the
free list." said Representative .James A.
Tawney to-day. "I know that lumber was
on the free list when the Payne- Aldrich bill
was being prepared and was kept there until
within two weeks of the time the bill was
reported to the House. Until then Mr. Pin
chot had been advocating free lumber.
•About this time he wrote a letter to the
committee favoring a tariff on lumber as a
conservative measure. I don't know what
caused Plnchot's change of heart, but I
do know the statement was made on the.
floor of the House and never denied that
the change came following a conference
between Pinchot and great lumber interests
which resulted In giving Mr. Pinchot great
er power over the timber of America than
any man ever had before or sin' c.
"1 am not making this charge, but It
was made on the floor of the House." con
cluded Mr. Tawney. .
A NEEDLE PEDLERS STORY

I By THeuraph to Th« Tribune I
Louisville, July 6.— With two old pistols
in a pedler's pack, which, lie paid, were used
by Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton in
their duel morn than a century ago. Brent
Hopkins, fifty years old. appeared in a po
lice court this morning on a charge of
having kicked a negro boy in the face.
Hopkins asserted that be was a lineal d.-
scendant of Burr, and sought to prove the
statement "by exhibiting the pistols.
The judge Inspected th* weapons and lis
tened to the story of relationship. Then
he fined Hopkins $10. The man who claims
the noted ancestor makes his living as a
needle pedler.
CURTiSS IN FINE FLIGHT
Propeller Smashed by Breaker
on His First Attempt.
GOES 80 MILES WITH WIND
Expects to Win Spted Prize To
day, but High Flights Will
Wait-Hamilton Expected.
[ FSy T.MeKTni.h to The TllbWl-1
Atlantic City, July 6.— Glenn H. f'urtiss
made another flight at s:3f> this afternoon,
after the stiff wind tbat had h»en blowing
all day had died down. He <lid not att rapl
to go after the elevation prize, contrary to
hi? expressed intention, made yesterday,
and gave as his reason that when h?
reached about six hundred feet the air cur
rents were a great deal stronger than the
found them at a lower altitude.
He said that point; down the beach with
the wind he crowded on r!u- power of his
big motor and figured that he was running
between eighty and ninety miles an hour.
He was somewhat retarded on his return
against the wind, however, and covered
only about eight miles in the twelve and
one-quarter minutes of flight.
When Curtiss first started off this after
noon he rose over the wave*?, but did not
get high enough to escape a big breaker,
which struck his swiftly revolving propeller
;'.nd shattered the ends. He was obliged to
descend again, and a new propeller was
fastened to the shaft. He then took his
seat again and soared off out over the.
ocean amid the plaudits of the thousands
gathered on the beach and Boardwalk to
watch his attempts.
On his return trip Curtiss' machine flew
so steadily that it resembled a giant bird
soaring- through the air. He sailed directly
over the steam yacht Mermaid, which had
a large party on board, and the passengers
declared he was going so smoothly and so
easily at a slow rate of speed that the
operator could have dropped a bomb on
board without the least possibility of his
mlssingr his aim.
Gives Fine Exhibition.
Curtiss gave a thrilling exhibition nf his
perfect control of the machine when he
made two wide circles and landed on the
beach within six feet of the Inclined plane
up which the machine is pushed to a place
on the pier. It was a spectacular feat, and
the crowd showed its approval of the skill
and darinp of the operator by a big burst
of applause.
Mayor Stoy was the first to congratulate
Curtiss at the end of his flight this after
noon. Other city officials, aviation experts
and officials followed. His course to-day
was practically the same as yesterday. He
had intended to try out the upper air cur
rents this morning, hut he waited until
near noon for more favorable conditions.
The wind freshened, however, instead of
dying down, and he gave it up until 5:30.
However, the aviator said he was well
pleased with his experiments and believes
that the speed he attained to-day is high
enouch to win the $5,000 speed prize over the
flfty-mli« course, which contest will be
started to-morrow.
Curtiss. when asked why he did not try
to go after the altitude prize, said there
was always an element of chance and risk
in making great heights.
"I don't want to take any chances yet.
If anything did go wrong, and 1 should be
obliged to drop in the ocean. It might be
the end of my machine for the present. It
seems to me that a breaker capable of
knocking down stone walls and smashing
the heavy timbers of strong ships would
not be long In completely demolishing my
plane. Therefore. T am going to put that
off until a little later, and then If I do
happen to get the machine broken up I
shall at least have had the satisfaction of
having given a few exhibition flights and
a cban.ee to go after the speed prize. I
am not anticipating trouble, but T am ai
the same time doing all In my power to
avoid it."
The Wright machines did not arrive to
night, bin they are expected in to-morrow
morning, and Walter Hrookins, a Wright
pupil, is expected to accompany them. No
word 'unx been received as yet from Cap
tain Baldwin, and it Is not certain whether
he will be here.
Hamilton May Go. Too.
Charles K. Hamilton's biplane Is here,
and the mechanics started this evening
potting it up. They will hurry the work in
order to have it in readiness should Ham
ilton decide to-morrow to enter the com
petition for the speed trials and the $r>,OX>
prize. It was first purposed to split this
prize so that the second man would get a
prize, too, but an official says the Wrights
are against this proposition. Hoth they
and Curtiss were willing to enter the race
upon their respective merits und take all
or nothing. Hoth :tre confident of winning.
Clifford 15. Harmon is here, but because
he is purely an amateur will not enter any
of the events. No prizes have been of
fered here for the amateur classes, and
Harmon says he is having too much fun
out Of thai branch of the spoil to go in
fur cash prizes.
He is watching all flights with a great
deal of interest. He de ( lared to-night that
It made him a hundred rimes rm»re nervous
this afternoon watching Curtiss's than it
made l.im to do the sanio tri.-k himself.
MINEOLA AVIATORS REST
Crowd Gathers at Field, but No Flights
Are Attempted.
Mineola, Uong Island. July tj (Special).—
A crcwd of fifteen hundred persons was
disnppolnted at tho aviation field here to
night, a.s no flight was attempted. George
Russell brought out bis biplane, but when
he. found that the engine was not working

WATTERSOI\U VOIDS HIS SON
Said to Believe That Ewing 13
Incurably Insane.
Kingston. N. "i., July fi.— When Colonel
Henry Watterson. of LouiHville. arriveH
here this afternoon, he did n»t go near his
son Rwlng. who la in jail here, charged
with shooting Michael J. Martin, a Sauger
ties saloonkeeper, hut instead closeted him
self for an hour with William D. Brinnier,
former Mayor of the city, who has been re
tained as his son's counsel.
During the consultation Colonel Watter
son was in communication over the tele
phone with District Attorney Cunningham
at Ellenvil'.e, who later said that his atti
tude will be in accord with that of the
colonel If the present situation remain?
unchanged. This statement. In con-
Junction with the fact that no application
has been made for the release of Ewinff
Watterpon on bail, is taken to indicate that
Colonel Watterson believes his son insane
and that he will approve of an application
by the District Attorney for a commission
in lunacy to examine into his son's sanity.
By his friends Colonel Watteraon is said
to feel that his son la Incurably afflicted
with homicidal mania, and that restraint is
the "n!y thing that can prevent further out
breaks. Inasmuch as Ewing Watterson, X
found guilty, will be convicted of felonious
assault. It is realized he couM not be sent
to any private Institution. If insane, an ap
pli« ation will be made by the county au
thorities for his commitment to the Mat
teawan State Hospital for the Criminal
Insane, where Harry K. Thaw is.
Colonel Watterson left ht* attorney's of
fice much depressed and too* the first train
for New York. He would make no state
ment. The examination of his son on the
charge el felonious assault will take place
to-morrow.
