GREAT DAY FOR FLYERS
Continued from ftr^t n«pr
and spectacular features of Ely's disap
pearing act. and then the crowd forgot
Ely in ■■. rising inflection in the lect
urer's voice when Justus Post was
seen to>t>e autoing down the field in his
flying- machine.
He did not miss the crass for the
length of the inner field. Those who
had seen his numerous successes at
. -■-- so on the previous even - felt,
hopeful that his act would not be de
void of ropy.
They did n>-i have to wait lon- "When
Mr. Post reached the end of the field h"
was still carthnound. and his motor wa,~
humming as cheerfully as any aviator
could desire.
Instead of running into the fence, when
he was unable apparently to fly over it.
Mr. Post jumped out of his machine
while it was travelling eayly along the
ground and — the engine continuing to
work and th€ propeller to revolve — Mr.
Post pushed his _._..:. ■ refused to
balk from behind until h° had it. turned
completely around.
It was the shortest turn ever made at
She€C£head. Then Mr. Po t took his
seat and tried to get in the sir. but
only partly succeeded.
Big Welcome for Ely,
By this time Ely was been coming to
ward the racetrack- He flew four times
around in front of the grandstand before
alighting, the while "Mars. who on
first eeeins him flew to welcome Ely
htrr. c . pursued a diligent and delightful
transit beneath him, steeplechasing- over
the numerous hurdles and water Jumps,
while the crowd grew highly enthu
siastic.
Ely said "1 dropped in front of the.
hotel and went in to get a drink. I only
drink water . Tm flying:. Mrs. Ely

chanics followed me in an automobile,
and in a f c^v minutes I started back. I

of his engine when he was about at the

He was rescued by a Email boy In a

mour, who has placed additional plane sur

brilliant flights about the field, rising to
a height of fully eighty feet and soaring
over the grand stand at the last turn.
Seymour and Schreiver had started out
together and Seymour at once rose In the
air. making a circle over the Diets ma
chine. While this -was In progress Frisbie
started from the east end of the field and
did not see Schreiver until almost upon
him. Although he has been flying only a
week, Frisbie saw that an accident was
unavoidable unless he rose abruptly in the
air. and this ie did without a moment's
hesitation Seeing that he had complete
control of bis machine, Frisbie continued
about the course, making two complete
rounSs of trie mile track
Captain Baldwin did his most brilliant
wot this afternoon and established a rec
ord for the course, of one and a quarter
miles ir. one minute and twenty-tw sec
onds His speed was terrific and he flew
through the air like an arrow. Conditions
for th« speed trial were perfect and his
Curtiss motor never missed a revolution.
He then made a cross country flight of
nine miles. He drove straight away to
ward the Meadow Brook Club and over
the country seat of Mrs. Adolph Laden
burg to the Long Island Motor Parkway.
Circling about he passed further on in the
direction of Hicksville, where he turned
west over Westbury village and then back
to the starting point, which he reached in
just eleven minute from the time his bi
plane left the ground.
Captain Baldwin then sent his speedy ma
chine around the mile course seven times
before cominir down for the night. During
the last round he reached hie highest, alti
tude This was about one hundred and
twenty-five feet.

HITCH IN QUALEYS OFFER
Demand for Cash Halts Plan to
Redeem Newark Plant.
BOTH MEN GO ON THE STAND
Hearing on Petition to Set Aside
Sheriff's Sale on Second
Mortgage.
There was a. dramatic -climax to ■ hear
ing in Newark yesterday in th proceed
ings instituted by John A Qualey, Harvey
W. Corbeti and Mr?. Ellen Dunlop Hopkin*
to set .aside the Sheriff's sale of th«» Stone
if. Plaster Company's plant to Clarence
P. Browning, assignee of a second mort
gage, on the ground that the price was in
adequate.
It was furnished by Mr. Qualey, when
near the close of more than two. hour?'
questioning of Mr. Corbett and himself he
made what, he declared to be a bona-fld"
offer on behalf of a stockholder to redeem
the property or buy It at a- resale.
Mr. Browning bought the property for
$25,000, while three mortgages, including the
one he held, aggregated $41,000. Mr.
Qualey's proposition, which cam" as a but
prise to \y. T. Martin and Henry M. Havi
land. representing the mortgagees was that
the unnamed stockholder stood ready to
pay the amount of the Sheriff's decree to
redeem the property, or would submit that
sum as a bid at a resale. A the same
time the promoter agreed to make a tender
of $5,500, the amount paid by Mr. Browning,
to the Sheriff as evidence of good faith to
clinch the deal.
Messrs. Martin and Haviland. after a
brie? conference, accepted the offer on con
dition that a cash tender be made of the
amount paid by Mr. Browning, In addition
to security for the remainder of the claims.
Qualey at the outset declared he was pre
pared to make, the cash tender at any time
stated by counsel for the other side, but
when asked if he would produce th* cash
on tho spot he had nothing to say bat Mb
lawyers. Chauncey H. Beasley and Frank
M. McDermott. argued for him that It
would be unreasonable to expect a man to
carry so much cash as that with him.
Squabbles Between Counsel.
The session was marked by several
squabbles between counsel. " Mr. Beasley
making numerous objections to Mr. Mar
tin's line oi inquiry. Mr. Corbett was
called to the stand first, and after declar
ing he was a mechanical and electrical
engineer, he gave a long explanation of
the proces3 of manufacturing magnesia,
plaster and piaster blocks.
He named the various pieces of machin
ery m the plant and put a value en each.
In this regard he referred to a gas plant
there which he said could not be dupli
cated for less than 5140,000. There was also
what he called a saturating machine "worth
$24,000. Asked as to the riparian rights of
the company, the plant being on the Pas
sale River, Mr. Corbett asserted that if
he had the plant without those rights he
would gladly pay $75,000 for them.
Mr Corbett finished his testimony ' r%
garding the valuations by stating that in
his opinion the plant as it stood was
worth between $360,066, and $400,000.
By consent of counsel the hearing was
cut short by not subjecting Mr. Qualey to
the questions which Mr. Corbett had an
swered. Mr. Qualey merely was asked if
what Mr. Corbett had said was tru«. He
replied in the affirmative, adding that he
wanted to go beyond what his partner had
said.
Growth of Magnesia Process.
Th» witness then proceeded to tell of the.
development of the magnesia process in
the last thirty years, following th« develop
ment in steel construction and steam pip
ing This necessitated the location of the
plant at tide water and in close proximity
to the fertile lime rock vicinity In New
Jersey.
Taking this into consideration and hi 3
value of (230,000 on all machinery amx«»d
to the soil th« witness said that he con
sidered the plant worth half a million dol
lars. Speaking of the Stone Age Company,
lio saul it owned the Magnesia Company of
Massachusetts and owned 1,763 acres of as
bestos land in Quebec.
When an adjournment was ordered by
William H. Piper, of Trenton, the master
who is hearing the testimony, it was with
the understanding that the hearing be re
sumed to-morrow afternoon, unless Mr.
Beasjey obtained an order of continuance,
for which be sail h» would apply at Tren
ton to-morrow morning.
