Oct. 17.— The fifth international balloon race for the James Gordon Be.nnett cup and juT" m '''""' ****»«■ wa " started late to-day when ten large aerostats, rep resenting four countries of Europe and America, ascended amid the plaudits of thousands of spectators. The balloons sailed toward the north and northwest and wer« oat of sic within a few minutes after the words "Let go"' were given by the pilots. Under Idea) atmospheric conditions, amp ly provision**! for fifty hours or more in the air and ballasted with the utmost care, the balloons rose gracefully. There was not a hitch In the arrangements, though the Harburg 111. " Germany. Lieutenant Vogt pilot, eot a false start, and the Mill ion Population Chih of St. Louis. S.

As soon as the Million Population Club ascended it veered toward a grandstand, and for a moment it looked as if a col lision were certain. Yon Phul and his aid worked rapidly, dumping out .sand until the grandstand was cleared. The Azurea got away with nearly fifty bags of ballast, die the others did not do fo well. Colonel Scnaeick and the Helvetia took a course almost Jue north from the aerodrome. A. R. Ha wl v had considerable difficulty In getting a sufficient quantity of gas. delaying the start of the America II and of the Germania. President Cortlandt Bishop of the Aero Club of America was In direct charge of the ccn:est. The race Is for distance, which is to be air line measurement from St. Louis. The winner win receive the James Gordon Bennett cup and 52.01 W. The second and third prizes ar» 11.300 and $1,250. Under the rules a landing is made if the baskft touches the ground or the drag rope becomes entangled in trees or trails along the ground for more than fifteen minutes or if the balloon descends In fresh water. If a. balloon descends in salt water it is disqualified. The wind when the race started was blowing eight nd si an put. Weather Ob server Hayes expected the balloons to take a northeasterly course after they had reached the higher altitudes. Oxygen tanks were in each basket for use In high altiti-des. I^e Blanc and Haw ley carried blowers, with which they can force air into the balloon baps and husband gas. This enables the balloonists to keep from f.scending under the Aston of. the sun's rays without letting cut gas. The French entrants took champagne and whiskey in their supplies of drinks. The Germans placed beer and sausage in their baskets. They also took wine and choco late. .Most of the balloonists took fruit with them. Appiea, c ranges and grapefruit were prominent in the food boxes. K. ilessner. a Swiss pilot, will depend on cold tea to quench his thirst. H. E. Honeywell will cook his meals by slaking lime. He has been able heretofore to boil coffee and fry eggs in this manner. His stove consists of a bucket, with a pan on top. If necessary, he can throw the stov«> overboard to lighten the balloon. His balloon will be electric lighted by the use of batteries. •• • r with him. . to snoot game U he ■ ■ Hone- • n Ills basket, to Kau : •--■""Tib who at- I rag rope and th h m t.i mak< I og T a Million Club ■ ■ of homing Captain Messner expects to sleep whfl«* in the air.

Professor Richard 1.. Garner, who for several years lived in a steel capo in the heart of th« African jungle to learn the language of the apes, lectured last night at the Berkeley Lyceum on the habits, mind md manners of the chimpanzee ami The gorilla. Professor Garner had with him Ytin nlne-nionths-01.l chimpanzee Susie, who Bbowed iii ( she anderst" many words and phrases, and alpo knew the differences of color*. Professor Garner attacked bitterly those who had accused him of nature faking, declaring that he l»ad proved that ape» possessed a language, and that their study would be of great Importance In teaching hmv to educate backward children. "t am Btrivlns to take the monkey on one side and the human being on the other, each" by the ear, and bring them door U>- CSther than they have ever been brought before " Professor Garner "Man and monkey have m a In common, and by !"u.!>-n*: the monkey we will learn much that will h»-ip us in the education of our backward children. "The monkey liar* within bin the tame original spark as has the human bring. We are separated from him only by being tinner la the seal* of development." MODEST MOISANT FLIES Gives First Demonstration of Monopiane in East. GOES ALOFT THREE TIMES Takes Machine Over Belmont Park Course with Precision of Piano Player. Colonel John P. Molsant. formerly of the. Nicarajruan army. is first of all a buslne*? man. Running- a Central American revolu tion or a new monoplane where the air is strange, he is prompt and systematic, cool and accurate In both matters. The first genuine exhibition of flight by monoplane that has been seen in the East Colonel Moisant conducted with the pre cision of an automatic piano player at Be! mont Park yesterday afternoon. It Is hardly necessary to state that the colonel left the ground at exactly 430 o'clock. It would be out of character for him to he late. He made three flights of 7:43, 7:02 and 5 flat minutes, during which, among other artistic and beautiful thing's be sped through the \'arious lan*>s in the air that make the flinire S. Molsant had never flown in a flat-winped Bleriot. He pretended before starting that as he was only a novice— he persists In Fpe«Wn*r of himself as a novice— and the machine much lighter and straighter of win«r than lie had ever mounted, thpre really was a prood chance that lie wouM receive a bump. He talks about flying with the same dis passionate ton" that he uses when re ferring: to his aeroplane factory In Paris. His profit and loss account, as shown by Mi factory ledcer and a monoplane etched upon the harvest moon are made to be equally interesting by his method of put ling the "flying- game" upon a purely busi ness basis. Certain aeroplanes can do cer tain things, whether or not the moon be up, at certain catalogued cost a horsepower. Th«»re Is nothing mysterious or dangerous in ">>ng. The chief thing Is for the pur chaser to deckle which machine will best meet his wants, and if the Moisant com pany get? hold of the candidate before too 'ate the answer Is easy. The first thin? Ifoisani did was to leap over the clump of trees northeast of the racetrack. The breeze w.i? slight, and the aviator made splendid speed around the 1.66-mile course. He covered the last lap that I.*" Blanc n-rmeil unsatisfactory in two ways, requiring that be turn first to the left and next to the rig Tit. When he descended he was asked about the part at the curse that L*» Blari'- has termed dan perous, and again replied with that mod esty: "Well, of com I'm only a novice. It may be as I.c Blanc says. He has had much more experience at meet.-, and he knows." "Yes. but how do you feel about it?" he was asked. "I feel nothing. You saw. of course, that I got. over If all right?" Moisant win fly again to-day. After his remarkable demonstration of mastery yes terday the builder-p-xlag-ogue of aviation he will give his whole time to construction and tutoring when he returns to Paris after the tournament— said that the new machino needed tuning up. In these little ways he is exasperating. He does not stand around and talk about how good he is. He always has a business engagement somewhere. His Pcris-to-London passenger carrying monoplane will be assembled soon. Hamilton. Shriver and NT. Marcel Penot, a novice in the actual sense, flew at Gar den City yesterday. The steamship Niagara will arrive to-day with a hoidful of flying machines. Roland Garros, operator of the Demoiselle monoplane, the smallest flyer in the world. will arrive to-day on the steamship Kron prinz Wilhelm. Rene Simon, Rene Barrier, C. Audemars« an.; Bmile Aubrun, of the French contingent, are due on the Teutonic on Thursday. WYNMALEN BACK IN PARIS Swift Aeroplane Trip to Brussels and Return. Paris. Oct. 17.— Wynmalen. :he Dutch aeronaut, arrived at Issy. the aviation field here, at 12:13 o'clock, having com pleted the trip from Paris to Brussels and return in 27 hours ."><» minutes and '_'? seconds after his start. I^egagneux descended at Saint Quentin. where he met with a trivial accident. l^egagneux. the French aeronaut, and Wynmalen started yesterday in an at tempt to win the prizes of (35.000 for a successful flight from Paris to Brus sels and return with a passenger. Wynmalen. who returned as far as Saint Quentin yesterday, ascended at 6:40 o'clock this morning, heading for the French capital. L*.'gaßmeux. who stopped overnight in Brussels, got away at 8:15 o'clock this morning. He had IT'» miles before him, while his Holland rival had only ninety miles to make. HOFFSTOT TO STAND TRIAL Supreme Court Decides Against Him in Extradition Fight. Washington. Oct. 17.— The decision of the New York federal court declining to release Frank N. Hoffstot. the wealthy steel man of Pittsburg, from custody, tor removal from New York to Pennsylvania to answer to an indictment for conspiracy to Oribe the City Council of Plttsburg, was amrn»Mi to-day by the Supreme Court of the United States. Hoffstot resisted removal to Pennsyl vania on the ground that on t.he day he was charged with committing the offence in PHtfburg !")•* was in New York and not In Plttsburg. No opinion was handed down by the court in the case, and hence the force of Hoffstot's contention was not d'a cursed. Justice Hughe«, who, as Governor it New York, granted the extradition request of the Governor of Pennsylvania, took no part in the decision of the court. Frank N. HofTstot. president of the Pressed Steel Car Company, was mdlcte.i in Plttsburg on April • last on a charge that lie was the chief person concerned in giving a bribe of tSSJSM to get deposits of public money for three banks In which he was interested. This was part of the result of the determination to set at the •men higher un ■ in the Pittsburg gratt ficandal. Counsel for Mr. Hoflstot declared he had been picked out as a scapegoat. Mr. Hoffstot came to this city where he has a home. Just before the Indictments were brought, and has been here ever since.

Up to the present time the work of the Rockefeller Institute was confined to laboratory studies of physiological and chemical aspects of diseases and to surg ical and other problems that could be studied on animals. The need for the direct study of dis eases 1 1 mil 1 conditions that would per mit the most minute and accurate ob servations with the aid of a most com prehensive equipment led to the founda tion of the hospital. The physicians of the institute win devote all their time and energy to the cure of the sick in trusted to their care.
