The world's rec ord is 9.156 feet. Hoxsey came down at Brentwood. twenty-five miles from Bel mont Park. There were few flights, owing to the pale that hlew up in the afternoon. The fight to the Statue of Liberty and back tor ( 10.000 was postponed. Any aviator may now fly for this prize at any time during tbw meet. The exhibition started with a rush, with Hubert Latham crossing the line almost on the second the bomb exploded. The Antoinette, usually so self-reliant and xuasterfoL teetered and showed the down beneath its golden right wing as the grandstand was passed to an ingrati ating waltz. Heretofore the beautiful flyer had swept at startling angles ftr^und the pyiones, but cow she was n<»t enjoying the poise that comes from a ennscio uptimes of supreme power. The wind was forty miles an hour at least. but the Antoinette, driven by the most cx^rt demonstrator of that type In the world, continued c-n its dangerous rounds for an hoar. Just before the bursting of the bomb twnty thousand persons were dlacour esed. Forty-mile winds presaged the hated wind check. Latham was deeply satisfying, but more was coming. Wilbur and OrriHe Wright sat at huicbeon in a little kitchen behind their testa, ana Johnstnne. whom Hoxsey had beaten in altitude the day I>efore, was close by. eating pastry. Hoxsey came in - •s.vA ' JnhriF*nne said, loud enough for Hoxsey to hear, "Look at that dude H^XFev." The Wright brothers did not rai*e their eyes from their tin plates, and Hoxsey did not make any acknowledg ment that he heard anything but the ■whistling of the wind and ihe flapping of the sheets of canvas. Hcxsey Spoils Some Pie. Another moment and the trio at luncheon were surprised to hear the an nouncement at their door. "Hoxsey is op.*" Johnston* 1 did not finish his pie. but ran to his hangar and in wonderfully quick time pursued his friend arid fel* low 'champion. By the time the grand stand was reached the two Wricht flyers •were side by ride, and there they re mained as though eying each other and « hallessing each to knock off any chips •' r might he resting on their wing?. And then n new sight »~as seen. The Wright machines started to fly backward.

N" Time to inquire while two were being made to backstop the steep cud bumpy treadmill of the air. They ■ limb d rapidly, side by side, while the Antoinette circled on one tip of its wing. and the crowds, conscious that some thing was going on that ought to be stopped by the department of safety, stood flushed and expectant and wished for reasF'jring word from the two bi planes, bow disappearing in the wintry northeast. Latham thrilled, and. tn a painful sort of way charmed, the specta tors for an hour. The two Wrights could sot b fj four.d by the aid of powerful glasses.

Therefore, the visual evidence of back ward flight proved, be i-aid. the wind to be in exc«-ss of forty miles, probably forty-five mlleg. and Mr. Dienstbach said that while h«' was interested in any aeronautical phenomena, a short demon stration would jilease him i^-ttt-r than the kind Johnstone and Hoxsey were i i-'ving. As th»- flyers v/«re drifting above ie Wright brothers' tent orville said: "Lets flag them."

AMERICAN GIRL A SUICIDE New Orleans Student in Paris Was in 111 Health. Paris. Oct. 27.— A young American stu dent of the piano. Lucinda Ferrar. of New Orleans, committed suicide by gas in her rooms in the Latin Quarter early this morning. The young woman had been in bad health and despondent for pome time and had mixed little with the student world. The occupants of the apartment above those occupied by Miss Ferrar heard her ■walking restlessly at about 4 o'clock in the morning. Then there was a faint cry and after that silence. They did not at tach any importance to tills, but the caretaker of the building, alarmed at not bearing the piano ail day, hurst in the door and found the girl dead. The doors and windows had been stuffed with pa- I>er and all the gas burners were open. A letter that lay on the table explained that no one was to blame for the girl's death.

Brookins, J. Armstrong Drezel and Charles K. Hamilton. The substitutes named were "Bud" Mars, John B. Moisant and Arch Hoxsey. The rules of the International Aero nautical Federation governing the meet provided that the contestants must be named by their clubs twenty-four hours before the date fixed for the contest. As the weather conditions made the elim ination trials, set first for Wednesday and then for yesterday, impossible, the club had to name its candidates by its executive committee, headed by Presi dent Cortlandt Field Bishop. The English entrants in the contest are Claude Grahame- White and James Rad ley. both of whom will use horsepower Bleriot monoplanes. France will be rep resented by Alfred Leblanc, with a Bleriot racer of 100- horsepower: Hubert Latham, who flies in a l<>o-horsepower Antoinette monoplane, and . Count de Lesseps. in a 50-horsepower Bleriot. Glenn H. Curtlss was invited some time ago to fly in the race without prelim inary trial, as recognition of his victory at Rheims last year. Evidently he has decided not to do so. His new single surface racer has not been tried enough to justify predictions of its speed, but Mars will fly as an alternate, If neces sary, using his machine. Walter R. Brookins is the leader of *The*W*right aviators. He set a world's record for altitude at Atlantic City, but soon lost the record to Drexel, who is also on the team. Brookins's most re markable aerial achievement was his IS7-mile flight from Chicago to Spring field. 111. He will use the new Wright racing biplane, the smallest of its typo in the world. Drexel'a beat work has been done in flights for altitude, but he has great speed possibilities in his Bleriot. Ham :;ton is regarded by many as the most s-kilfu! of American aviators. His flight from New York to Philadelphia and back was his greatest feat. FOOTBALL PLAYER DIES Acting Captain of Cornell Fresh man Team Hurt in Practice. Ithaca, N Y. Oct. 27— L. B. Paino. of Duluth.

Saying that he realized the great importance of this matter to this community, he treated it in detail. He said he agreed with the plank in th* Republican platform about the conservation of water power. On the other hand, experience with the develop ment of water power in the arid regions of the West, he said, had shown him that great care must be exercised not only to protect the public interest but to protect and cherish the interests dependent on the water power.

[By Cable la The Trlt>un?.l London. Oct. 27.— Berlin newspapers ignore the story published in England that the building of the German Dread naughts has been retarded by the dis covery of the intention of the Brit ish Admiralty to mount the new 13.5 inch gun. which weighs eighty-six tons and discharges a projectile of 1,250 pounds, on the last six Dread naughts provided for in the naval pro gramme of 1909-10 and on all five ships of the programme of 1010-'ll. In well informed circles in Berlin, says a dispatch to "The Daily Express," the story is denied. No definite information on this point is obtainable, and it Is un likely that any statement for publication will be made, as such matters are in variably treated with the strictest se crecy, and any attempt to unveil this se crecy constitutes treason.

SURF LEAPS HIGH IN AIR Many Go to Bedlow's Island to See Flight Around Statue of Liberty — Seasick on Return Trip. The announcement that men bl flying machines would come from Belmont Park and fly around the Statue of Lib erty brought a big crowd yesterday to the Battery.

Th* crowd that assembled yesterday, however, was not favored as was the throng that greeted the ex-President. The latter aggregation Mm Mr. Roose velt and grot their moneys worth, and then came a terrific storm after every one had gone home. Those who came to gee the aviators saw them not and were driven home by th« wind — the same oouthwester that prf*\ente<l the bird-men from flying. At noon there was a black fringe around the Battery wall. The Tind yaa young then, and these who came early gut places of vantage and were happy. but by the time It was announced for the fourth or fifth time that the aviators would and would not start the promis ing young breeze had developed Into breath catching squalls of forty miles an hour. At about 2 4" p. m. the sightseers came to the Battery in droves. Th- climbed down from the elevated a thick, slow moving procession, and from out the subway stations at Bowling Green and South Ferry the throng surged up like ants. Every one looked up into a clouded sky. Eyes riveted on the bronze god dess of the LTpper Bay saw a squall in the background. The flag on the big steel mast of the Constitution above the Battery green fluttered steadily before a thirty-six mile wind. There was no sug gestion of a let-up, and the crowd waxed Impatient.

Probably no better place could be found to see the flights around the Statue of Liberty than Battery Park, but there were a thousand persons who were content with no place but Bedlow's Island.

Some folk went up into the statue, in the hope of saying something to the aviators who did not . ome. and of the many who were called to the island few were chosen to com** back as well as they went. The choppy sea made the ferryboat pttch. and the short ride from the inland to the Battery added much seasickness to the disap pointing programme of the day.

NINE HURT; TWO VS3 A3 After Day of Violence Striking Express Company Employes Say They Are Sure to Obtain Demands. Whll* on their way to their homes in Manhattan at the end of their rtay's work, twenty strike breakers and their guards were mobbed by more than three thousand striking express company em ployes, women and children, in Jersey City last night. Two of them were so badly hurt that they were brought to the Hudson Street Hospital here when it was found impossible, to get an »m bulance in Jersey City. Two others, among those dragged about by the crowd, have not been heard from. The men, with four mounted patrol men, were on their way to the Cham bers street ferry in one of the wagon* of the Wells-Fargo Express Company. the employes of which went on striiM* on "Wednesday. The wagon driven by Henry C. Turner, of No. 343 East MM street, was going through Seventh, street when the strikers made their first demonstration. They hurled sties* and stones at the truck. Turner kept on. He had apparently outdistanced th« i vanguard of the mob when he was ! brought to a sudden stop at the Erl« Railroad tracks, about two blocks from, I the ferry house, by the gate guarding the crossing, which was let dowu as th« horses reached it. In less than a min ute the wagon was surrounded by strikers. They dragged Turner from his seat and beat him so badly that his face was mashed almost to a pulp. They also assaulted the other men of the party some of whom escaped by mixin» with the crowd. The mounted patrolmen could do noth ing to stop the angry men. One of them drew his revolver, and for a short time held them back, but they surrounded his hor»e and he was forced to put the weapon a way for fear he might injure some of the children who were in th« crowd- One of the policemen got word to Po lice Headquarters in Jersey City, and a. patrol wagon was sent to the scene. As soon as it arrived the crowd broke and the strike breakers made a run ■■ it. Nine of them awl in and were driven rap idly toward the ferryhouse with two of th* mounted policemen. One of these. Patrolman Crawford, was struck m the stomach with a brick, and was sent to St. Francis's Hospital. His companion. Patrolman Simmons, fainted from ex haustion. He was injured in a riot on Wednesday. Word was sent to New York - olice Headquarters, and Dr. Wesson was called from the Hudson Street Hospital. i He met the men at the Chambers street ferry and dressed their wounds. He took Turner and Frank Traub. li No. 124 Elm street, to the hospital. Traufr had lacerations of the head and back. After the police had departed the strikers set fire to the wagon ar.d dragged it five blocks to the TTells- Fargo stables, which they bombarded ■with rocks and other missiles.

Alleging that the Adams company was aiding the United States and Wells- Fargo companies In fighting th© strike, I fifty helpers of the Adams Express Com i pany in Jersey City, an! those employed at the Grand Central Station and the West Shore stations, went out yester day. The men say that the strike will ex tend to all the companies and trail! will be entirely tied up. The helpers are asking for a ten-hour day and **no doubling up" In Manhattan, while those in Jersey City demand an advance of $5 a week in their wages.
