Finally the police came and the rioters were driven out. There wer* two women with tho-te who entered tho building, and I mjst say they fought well.

Frederick Tarns and Charles K. Beekman, club stcrc tary, both members of the same com? mittee, and it was decided to have the flag displayed again. To guard against ' further trouble the police were sum ' moned and Captain William II. Ward sent fifty reserves from the Las: Thirty-fifth and East Fifty-first Street y stations. ?, When the congregation came out of ? the cathedral at 1:15 p. m. It did not - disperse. The whisper ran through tho ?..crowd that the British flag was living i again from the club windows on Fifth Avenue, The whisper grew to a men ?cing cry. Tho voices of women were ( heard, screaming out against the flag . *.*nd tho nation it represented. As if by common impulse, the crowd moved toward the club, where the fifty re? serves were drawn up outside. Crowd in Fighting Mood It was plain that the crowd was in lighting mood. Men in the rear ran to a new building which is under con? struction on Fifty-first Street and am? munition began to arrive, in the form ? f stones and bricks. These were rained upon the clubhouse, Three windows on the Fifth Avenue side were smashed an J two on the Fifty-first Street Bide went \pvt.

Riot calls were sent, to every Man? hattan precinct, and within fifteen min? utes 200 patrolmen were on the scene, ented by mounted police and a Bcore of motorcycle policemen. The fifty officers who held back the crowd urti! the oii;er reserves arrived put in what they freely declare to ho the most strenu ?:? minutes ??7 their official lives.

"Well, you ?n- what has happened," the police inspector is reported to have said. After the riot the street was littered with flags of the "Irish Republic" and pictures of the late Mayor MacSwiney, which had b? en sold to the crowd bj venders. M< n and women clutched these mementos desperately, even as they fought the police to get through the lines. The police woe alternately threatened and cajoled. When they proved adamant and insisted on forc? ing the crowd always backward they were called "Black and Tans." No of? ficer lost his temper or became panic stricken and the crisis was handled with military precision. Month's Mind Mass for MacSwiney Cele h rat ed The month's mind requiem mass for Terence MacSwiney was celebrated at noon yesterday in St. Patrick's Cathe dral. It had been arranged by the Cork .Men's Benevolent and Protective Asso? ciation. The cathedral was crowded to capacity.

Church of Nivelle Salutes Flags At Scene of Irish Riot Soon after traffic was resumed on Fifth Avenue, following the riot over the British flag at the Union Club at Fifty-first Street, an automobile carrying a soldierly looking man stopped at tho scene of havoc. The man saluted the flags which swung from the Fifth Ave? nue window of the cluh?the American flag flanked by the French tricoror aud the British cross. He had saluted them un? der widely differing circumstances across seas, for he was General Georges Robert Nivelle, some? time commander of the legions of France. Whatever recollections the evi? dences of destruction at the club aroused in the breast of the Gen? eral were kept to himself, as he made no comment, and, after one brief survey, the automobile sped on. the Assumption. The Rev. Thomas Kemple, of St. John's Church, Kings bridge, was deacon; the Rev. Patrick Temple, of Holy Family Church, New Rochelle, sub-deacon, and the Rev. Henry Hammer, of the cathedral clergy, master of ceremonies. The Right Rev Monsignor Michael J. Lavello, rector of the cathedral, preached the sermon. Eamonn de Vaiera, i "president of the Irish republic''; Harry Boland, his sec? retary; J. L. Fawsitt, consul of the liii-h republic in New York, and Justice Cornelius Collins, of the Court of Spe? cial Sessions, occupied seats in a front pew. The Cork Men's Association assem? bled at its headquarters, Sixty-seventh Si reet, near Third Avenue, and marched to the cathedral. Their line was so long it. held up traflic while filing into the cathedral. Monsignor Lavelle, in his sermon, said, in part : "Von are gathered her.* to celebrate; the month's mind of a man whose high record proclaims him just, whose deeds make h;iu a hero among his fellows ami whose name will live in the memory of the world "We call a man a hero who distin? guishes himself for high and daring enterprise, who dios for a great cause. But what, have we in human history that compare'- with this man's death and the courage behind it? Here wc have a man who doomed himself. Many can face danger who could never en? dure tho torture and agony that he endured. "Some people remark that Mac Swiney's aci was foolish and ask what is to be gained bj it. In reply to that I cite the parable of the grain, of seed that was planted deep in the ground and that became a mighty forest. "We pray that the hope of the I? ih peop'i- may soon be realized and that the aspirations of Xerence MacSwiney and the t'ru:t< of his sacrifice way soon come, and come with interest, Lei us do aii we can for tho cause he ?iir;i for and pray to keep for the Irish race the respect the world has ("or it.

Panama, Nov. 25 (By The Associated Press) A pledge of enduring brotherhood and cooperation between Panama and the United States was pronounced here to-night by Presi? dent Porras of the Panaman Republic and Warren G. Harding, President elect of the Unite?! ? t?te.' U. S. Criled "Polar Star' Speaking -it a banquet given by him in honor of Mr. Harding, Se?or Porras declared it was the wish of the pan \mei ican nal ions that the 1 ni ? I States should continue as "the polai star of our American continent, light? ing the way for other peoples that they may follow in the paths of libi rty i nd ; independence." In reply Mr. Harding voiced warm | reciprocation of these expressions of I friendship and declared that it. was lorn.' of Ills fondest hopes tu spe the Americas, North, Central and South, united in the purpose of living peace? fully and in coopera ion As ?n all the other exchanges of courtesies during his vacation trip here, Mr. Harding made it clear thai I he spoke onlj as a private citizen. His carefully chosen words and his earnest demeanor, however, were taken by his auditors as plainly indica! his deep realization of the responsi? bilities that will be inevitable in guiding Pan-American relations in the co ling four years. The American officials of the ("anal Zone and most of those in high autl or ity in the Panaman republic weri ',; ' cut. at the banquet, which was in the nature of a love feast to cement the comity between the nation upi ? ti:i' great Isthmian waterway4 and the nation whose territory it pierces. Harding Hoids Reception After the banquet Mr. Harding held ft public reception in the Union Club, where the dinner was held, anil shoo.-; hands with hundreds of Panamans. Though he mad" no reference in his speech at th?1 banquet to specific diplo? matic policies, the President-elect had before him as he spoke detailed infor? mation gathered during his visit here on many subjects affecting th?> canal ! management and relations with Pan - ama. Among the data was a memorial ad dre sed to him by 250 cith of Colon protesting against the present -Ymeri can land poli? y along the Canal Zon< 1 boundaries, and declaring, that the 1 ited States is trying to enlarge hei territorial holdings and sphere of in? fluence in Centra] America by unjusti ? met hods.

Loening and built within a block of Broadway on Fifty second Street. It is a monoplane with a wing upread of only 29 feet. It was in the wing that the mystery lay, it being equipped on the ship at a negative dihedral angle. This means that both ends of the wing have a downward slope from the center. No machine has ever been flown before with wings set in this manner. For two laps Lieutenant Bradley, of tho Marine Corps, drove this graceful monoplane around the course at terrific speed, vying closely with Captain Har? old E. Hartney, the famous ace, who was piloting a Thomas Morse scout. Then on tho third lap, the water con? nection broke, rendering his radiation system, useless. Despite this handicap Lieutenant Bradley continued on at slightly reduced speed, completing the third lap and getting well started on the last lap at over 160 miles an hour, j Plucky Flier Forced to Land As he sped around the last leg of his flight, the engine cooled rapidly, and he came down lower to escape the frigid atmosphere of altitude. Fighting des? perately to the finish, ho nursed his en? gine carefully--but in vain. When within a mile of the finish lina ho was compelled to descend to a forced land? ing in a narrow patch of clearing. His machine caught u small tree and turned over, but was not badly darn. ged. He received a few slight cuts. In the meantime Captain Hartney was giving a splendid demonstration in the Thomas Morse with a 300-horse power Wright motor. Flying con? sistently and powerfully he covered each lap in steady time and came to a landing for second place at on aver? age speed of lt)8.5 miles an hour in a machine designed for 150 miles. The piano is a stock machine taken from the army hangars. Captain St. Clair Street, commander ? of the recent Alaska arid return flight, j was fourth in an Orenco scout, also \ equipped with a 300-horsepower Wright ' engine. His average was 151 miles an hour. His turning around the pylons won the admiration of the crowd. Fly? ing directly to the turning point at full speed, he threw his machine into a vertical bank, with the edge of the wings pointing straight to the ground, and went around at 150 miles an hour, straightening out with surprising | rapidity. The entire crowd watched with halted breath when Captain Corliss landed his Verville Packard. The fast battleplane came tearing across the field ??t. high speed, but tier pilot held the nose up until practically all >'?"? speed was killed and then set his ma? chine down to a perfect landing. I he crowd then for the rirst time broke the : police lines an?1 rushed over to greet the winner. Captain Corliss said bis 600-horsepower Packanl engine had been making only 1,700 revolutions, I* ??-? capable of making 2,000 Gener*il Mitchell Elated Brigadier General Mitchell, chief of' the division of operations, ? nit? !

Secretary Daniels 0} m In the improvised stan . however, 'Secretary Daniels was not so enthusi? astic. The unfortunate minor accident to the navy entry had left him some | what glum, a mood that appeared to be i emphasized when General Pershing leaned over and smilingly whispered 1 some bantering remark on the perf? rm ; anee of the army as compared to the navy. The thirty-six starters were sent away in ^rwn flights, Captain Hartney being the first to get away promptly at li o'clock, the scheduled time, It was ' at this moment, however, that it looked as though a serious accidenl would mai the race, Lieutenant Kelly, in an army On nco scout, and Li ? ite nant .T. B\ Wolfer, in a stock naval Loenig mono plane, collided with each other while taxing on the ground. Both machines were crippled and Lieutenant Wolfer ? was cut about the face. At the very last moment the flying m m lance of Mitchel field ??? is en tered in the race. This is a remodeled DH 4 biplane w ith a Libertj the emblematic red cross painted on either side of the white fuselage. All the contestants who finished cov ? ed the cou rse four times. Thin irse never has been accurately si r veyed, and was approximated at thirty five miles to the lap or a total of 140 miles for the four lapB. However, yes? terday, after the race was completed, it was determined to reduce the total figure to 132 miles until an accurate survey has been made. It is quite probablo that the wonderful perfor? mance of the Verville Packard, and the other contestants may be enhanced by the survey. Among the machines that came to grief during the race were the DH-4's, piloted by Major Davenport Johnson and Lieutenant P. 0. Rogers. Major Johnson came down near Farmingdale a.io was slightly hurt. Lieutenant Rog- I era was forced to lafld in Sperry Field j because of a broken connecting rod. Contest for Class Prizes In addition to the Pulitzer Trophy, j the contestants raced for . >ur class prizes. The first was the invitation prize, of the contest committee of the Aero Club which was for $1,500 to the j winner; $750 to second, and $500 to j third place, with other money prizes to I mt-chanicB. The other three classes i catT'ed first prizes of $350 each and ! second prizes of $150. In the case of: army and navy pilots winning in these events, no money prizes will be given.

Freschi, of Special Sessions,' ??? as n magistrate yesterday in i York- ille Court. McGowan, who admitted be is n drug addicl and that he already had served thri terms in the city penitentiary and one term in tho New York Re- | formatory, was charged with stealing a suit u,' clothes, and asked the court to ; make the legal charge against him burglary and not grand larceny, so that! ! . coul 1 be sent to Sing Sing. "1 don't want to go back to the re- : fortnatory or city penitentiary," he said. "Every time I was sent there I :arae out in a worse condit on than ! vent in. I wish you would iaki aint re-ad 'burglary.' so that ; could be sent to stale prison for five ye; rs. That would do me more good than sending me to the reformatorj again." Justice Freschi's reply was to hold Mi i lov in ii - i ,000 bail for trial in Special Sessions, saying he felt certain : .? : fti r a day's reflection McGowan would change his mind, adding: "If -'. u can c< nvince the three judges there that you committed burglary your re- j ? :... >t wi'l be granted."

D., Nov. 25.?The clos? ing of thirteen privately owned state btmks in North Dakota during the last eight days is looked upon as - disaster for the Nonpartisan League in this and other states -.here it seeks political power. The closing of the banks is an in? direct result of the control of this state by the Nonpartisan League dur? ing the last four years. Much enp ital ordinarily invested in farm mortagages and on deposit in banks in the state for use in financing farming operations has been withdrawn, and that with? drawal, coupled with the generally tight money situation, has operatec to cause the suspension of business or the part of the banks so far affected Unquestionably other banks also will close. Paralleling ths closing of the grou| of private state banks is the prospec tive reduction in the power of tit? Bank of North Dakota, the institutiol created by the Nonpartisan League controlled state Legislature. lit thi recent electi in ti e people approve* an initiated law which takes from thi si te -owned bank m mopo ist ic of public funds, and gives to treasurer of political subdivision? of the stst th<- authority to deposit their funds ii private banks if they so desire. Thi 1--1--V* will result in almost all deposit of the Bank of North Dakota bein taken from the institution und it generally accepted in North Dakot tl X the state-establiehed bank ha lost the greater part of the power X- .-> it has wielded in the two years X ha operated. Farm Products Depreciate The closing of the group of private! owned banks is accepted as being :. direct result of the depreciated valu -, 7 farm products, the refusal of t!? farmer-! to sell their ejrain nt the pre! ent prices and the fact that much mone ordinarily available for financing tl st ite's business no longer is in tl State. So far as the Nonpartisan League concerned it, is the opinion of all clo.? observers that It never will he possib for the organization to take the offei sive politically again in this or ai othei -;- te. The breaking down of tl banks that have close?! is l"-'v* c pi -d in neighboring states where ti league has sought powi r as ? direct result of the league's politic ? mtrol o^ North Dakota. With th handicap to overcome, political obser ers assert that the league can nev again become the commanding infl ei ce that it was prior to the rece tions.
