their praises of the scouting and other
exploits at the aeroplanes. Major T.

have predicted such operations as those
accomplished by the French officers last
■Ml would have been considered a lu
natic.
uaoe h.Ls pr"\ c(i. ' said Major Mott
to-day, "that the aeroplane in competent
hands is worth a thousand men for
scouting purposes in war. Conditions
be profoundly modified by the ad
vent of a "fourth arm.' '

has given the world a lesson. England
will be the first nation to profit by it."
POISONED: CALLS .HOSPITAL
Girl, Out of Work, Had Been
Melancholy for Some Time.
Marguerite TVeiner was taken to St.
Mary's Hospital, Jamaica, yesterday af
ternoon, an hour after she had tele
phoned to that institution, and said:
"Please send an ambulance to No. IS
Welden street. Cypress Hills. Please
hurry, for I'm very ill from poison. Prob
ably Ii! be dead when you get here."
Dr. Hyland jumped into an ambulance
and a furious four-mile drive began.
When he reached the Weiden street ad
dress he jumped out and rang the bell.
A girl of seventeen years, who appeared
to be very ill, opened the door, said it
was she who had summoned him and
swayed into his arms. The physician
thought he detected traces of a poisonous
mixture containing laudanum.
He said later that he had learned that
the girl had been attended a week ago
last Wednesday by a doctor, who found
similar symptoms. Her brother said she
had been out of work for some time and
had been melancholy.

failed, and word was tent to the East
I2fith street station. Patrolman ronklin
hurried around with an axe
A great crowd (Hied the back yard and
awaited developments, hut when the
fence •v;is ab^ut to give way beneath
the blows of The axe. Conklin paused
long enough to "shoo" the crowd away.
Mrs. Wyck. « hen released, was pro

NEW-YORK, MONDAY.
"DECLARE EVERYTHING;
THE WIRELESS WARNING
Passengers on Arabic Got tips
from Friends Ashore, and No
Chances Were Taken.
PUBLICITY MAKES HONESTY
That's What Customs Men Say,
Believing Morganthau Case
Caused Interlining on
Declarations.
The Marconi operator on the White
Star liner Arabic was weary when the
steamship got to port last night. He
had been unusually busy since Friday
handling an unusual number of personal
messages for passengers, advising them
to make full and honest customs dec
larations.
Ever since the news of the seizure of
$10,000 worth of pearls and $2,100 worth
of gowns from the Morganthau family
on the Mauretania became public on
Friday solicitous friends ashore have
been informing friends at sea that it
pays to be honest with Uncle Sam.
Such messages as "Declare every
thing," "Take no chance at smuggling"
and "Wise guy customs inspectors can
see through brick walls" have been
going seaward to the Arabic since Fri
day.
Of course, the customs officials knew
nothing of the warnings, but they sus
pected last night, on looking over ih^
Arabic's declarations, that "something
had been in the wind."
Bach an array of declarations!
Many were "chock-a-block" in matured
ink. showing that the owner had been
honest at the start. But there were
others which showed mych patching and
elongating.
Many showed that they were made out
with two different pens on two different
occasions and two shades of ink.
Then there were declarations which
made the inspectors literally "read be
tween the lines" of the original writing.
and on reading they found inserted in
pencil records of many trifles demanding
the absurd duty of 30 cents. There were
declarations also that suggested a heavy
sea was on at the time of revision.
All this amused and pleased the men
who catch the smugglers. Collector
Loeb has frequently declared that pub
licity and exposure through the press
made returning travellers honest. His
contention was borne out yesterday by
the Arabic's amended declarations.
The inspectors were happy, but they
preserved their customary outward
seeming of severity.
"CROWD AWAY
One of the men observed, however,
that there could be such a thing as ultra
honesty. He whispered this to himself
as he called an appraiser to place a value
upon some trifles that a girl had pur
chased in a "five and ten centime store"
in the Latin Quarter of Paris.
The passengers on the Arabic were not
selfish persons — is. those who -were
favored with messages advising them to
be honest — and The good word was
passed around from one to another, and
before the liner came abeam the light
ship everybody knew what had hap
pened to the Morgenthaus, and he who
had planned to defraud the government
smote his conscience and revised his dec
laration.
Souvenir spoons, collar buttons, blot
ters, cheap jewelry and perfumes found
their way to the declaration blanks and
permitted themselves to be fondled by
the inspectors of bageage.
Whenever an Inspector found a dec
laration that had been newly amended
he kept a wary eye. and when he found
a small one unmolested he kept two
wary eyes on the possessor.
Vigilance was not suspended because
of the wireless, but nevertheless the
Arabic for the trip ending yesterday will
go on record as an exceedingly honest
ship.
RESTRICTS ENTRY TO PIERS
Two Passes to Each Traveller
the Order of Surveyor Henry.
The unusual congestion which pre
vailed on the Canard pier on Thursday
night with the king of the Maure
tania baa caused Surveyor Henry to re
strict the number of pier passes issued
to friends and relatives of returning
travellers. Hereafter only two persons
will b<- permitted to enter the customs
lines to greet a traveller from abroad.
A pass will be issued to a relative or
friend, the nearest of kin having the
preference Tlt name of the passenger
will be checked at the Custom House
and no more passes will be issued for
that name.
The customs officials and steamship
men complain that the presence of an
unwarranted number of persons on the
pier hinders th- work of the inspectors
and the baggage handlers. It was said
at the Custom House that the Treasury
Department spends 55,000 annually in
the issuing of passes. The limit of all
passes for the Kronprinz Wili:>'lm. due
in Hoboken at the North German Lloyd
pier on Tuesday, has been issued, and no
one need apply tor passes for that steam
ehip to-day.
The total number of passes -■;••<! in
June was i,SM; July. 6.500: August, 7,
fto<\ and to September 17, 5,000. William
Sweeney, in charge of the pass depart
ment, laid there is only one case on rec

Pittsburg. Sept. IS.— Two of tfce thir

dianapolis between 3 and 6 o'clock yes
terday afternoon landed to-day.
The Topeka came down at 3:30 o'clock
this afternoon in the yard of John Rey
burn's farm, seven miles south of Wash
ington. Perm.. on account of a shower.
Pilot R. S. Cole and his aid. F. M.
Jacobs, of Topeka, Kan., reported that
most of the night they had travelled so
closely to the others of the biz aeronaut
ical party that they could talk from
basket to basket. The Topeka was en
tered in the free-for-all event.
The Drifter, with Albert Holz. pilot,
and George R. Howard, passenger, land
ed at Uniontown, Perm. The aeronauts
stated that they encountered three
storms while flying at an altitude of
about twenty-three hundred feet and
crossed the Ohio River three times
Their big gas bag was literally soaked
and made so heavy by the rain that they
were forced to descend.
The Buckeye passed over Charleston.
W. Va.. at 7 o'clock this evening.
Four other balloons crossed the Ohio
River near Wheeling. W. Va.
Hundreds Watch Balloons.
Eastern Ohio, West Virginia and West
ern Pennsylvania were all balloon hunt
ing to-day. All afternoon local news
paper offices were advised from outlying
districts that four balloons, sailing high
and separated by about ten-minute in
tervals, had been sighted.
The first report came here from Wash
ington. Perm. The balloons had been'
sighted there at 1 o'clock, and the third
had passed at 150 p. m. They were all
over L.600 feet nigh, but Sheriff John
Murphy, who reported their passage,
said that he distinguished the forms of
two men in two of the baskets and three
men in the car of the third balloon.
At Cannonsburg. just northeast of
Washington, the balloons were sighted
by hundreds of persons, and one man
got BO excited he turned in a fire alarm.
Over the junction of the afonogahela
and Youghiogheny rivers the aeronauts
evidently encountered trouble with the
lower air currents and avoided them by
mounting to the height of nearly a mile.
At this altitude they sailed up th« Mo
nongahela valley, over the fire and smoke
of numerous steel mills
Sailing Close Together.
The balloons were sighted between 2
and 3 o'clock from the southern suburbs
of Pittsburg. at McKeesport. Elizabeth.
Carrfdi and Mount Oliver. At that time
one of the balloons had a. twenty min
utes' lead on the three others, and the
latter were so close together that it
seemed as if they would bump.
At »he extreme height it was impossi
ble to identify the balloons, and as dusk
closed in they were reported as barely
visible as they proceeded northeasterly
along the course of the Allegheny River.
During the afternoon showers threat
ened several times, and at 8 o'clock some
rain fell here, but at that hour no report
had been received of any of these four
balloons landing. The wind held steady
at about twelve miles an hour, as it had
all day. The local Weather Bureau re
ported that during last night the aero
nauts could not have had a wind much
bftter than four miles an hour, but at
daybreak it became brisker
During the evening a note dropped
from the Million Population Club .bal
loon, of St. Louis, was brought into a
local newspaper office. It read:
We are now at the 2,560-fooi level,
