Hawker's Rival Smashed at Start HEAR FROM HAWKER? (Special United Press Wire.) London, May 19.-The British air ministry wireless station has picked up a message In the Sopwich code, which had not been deciphered at a late hour. It may be from Hawker. (Special United Press Wire.) London, May 19.-The British air ministry had received no news of the whereabouts of Aviator Hawker late this afternoon. Many rumors were circulated. One report said he had been sighted 400 miles off the Irish coast. Anxiety over his fate and that of his navigator is increasing. Harry G. Hawker, Australian aviator, and his navigator, Commander MacKenzie Grieve, started on their long flight across.the Atlaatio yesterday afternoon at 5 '55 p. mn., Green wich time. the eouivalent of 1:55 D. in.. New York time. Before starting Hawker declared he wanted to "beat the Yankees across the Atlantic," as well as win the $50,000 prize offered by the Lon don Daily Mail for the first non-stop airplane flight across the ocean. Soon after Hawker and his navi gator took the air, Aviator Frederick P. Raynham, Hawker's rival for trans-Atlantic honors, attempted to hop off, but his plane was wrecked and he and his navigator, Charles W. F. Morgan, were injured. Hawker deciile4 to start when he received the news of the landing of the NC-4 at the Azores. He essayed the trip in a Sopwith plane with one motor and upon leaving the ground dropped his running gear in order to lighten his machine. Barring accident Hawker expected to make the trans-Atlantic flight in 20 hours' flying, which should have brought him to the Irish coast at about 10 o'clock this morning, New York time. Because of his lack of pontoons, a forced landing anywhere short of the Irish coast was expected to prove fatal to the daring aviator and his mechanic. The last seen of Hawker, so far as is known, was as his machine topped the hills east of his starting field, From the fact that the straight-away course decided up on by the aviators at the last minute in their efforts to "beat the Yankees across," it was not expected that the plane would be sighted by any pass ing steamers. London, May 19. - A vigilant watch was maintained along the coast of Ireland for the Sopwith bi plane in which Harry Hawker and Lieutenant Grieve started east yes terday from St. Johns in an attempt to cross the Atlantic. It was stated that if the flight was successful, the plane should be sighted this morning. If it was not successful the Sopwith would never be heard from again. As Hawker dropped the under carriage from his plane to lighten it, it was expected he would have difficulty in making a landing even if he should succeed in crossing the ocean. RAYNHAM PLANE WRECK. St. Johns, May 19. - The Mar tinsyde plane, which crashed on the heels of Hawker's Sopwith yesterday in an attempt to get away on a trans Atlantic flight is practically a wreck. Frederick Raynham, the flyer, and Major Morgan, his navigator, were slightly hurt when the Martinsyd& took a nose dive after jumping 10 feet from the uneven turf in their effort to start.

WEAVING A NEW FABRIC * WIMIPEC EMPLOYERS AGREE TO SUBMIT TO STRIKERS, IS REPORT RM MRWAmwA a wthwWe mmwnwans awammemw a mm PATRIOTIC BUNK OF EMPLGYERS CALLED Two Returned Soldiers and One Sailor Named As Ccmmittee to Wait on Mine Owners. (Special to The Bulletin.) Park City, Utah, May 16.-With the Miners' Union hall filled to ca pacity and the ante-rooms and the stairway leading to the hall jammed with workers unable to gain admit tance, the striking miners of Park City gathered in mass meeting yes terday afternoon and voted solidly against returning to work until the demands for which they had struck had been complied with by the oper ators. The patriotic bluff of the mine operators to the effect that the strike and unrest in the camp was due to outside "anarchistic" influence being brought to bear on the strike committee, was called, when the strikers adopted a resolution declar ing that the committee was represen tative of every man on strike in the camp. In the discussions on the adoption of this resolution it was brought out in plain and unmistak able language that the real cause of the industrial strife in Park City was the autocratic action of the mine owners themselves in cutting the workers' wages in the middle of the winter when they were unorganized and unable to protect their own in terests, and the subsequent despotic action of the employers in refusing to consider any demands of the miners looking to a betterment of working conditions and increase in wages commensurate with the ever increas ing cost of living. In order that the veil of hypocrisy with which the mine operators have masked themselves from the begin ning of the strike might be entirely torn aside, and that they be shown up to the people of Utah in their true colors, a sub-committee of three members of the general strike com mittee composed of two returned sol diers and one sailor was elected to wait upon the mine managers here, and, if necessary, the other officials and owners in Salt Lake city and de mand a showdown on the original de mands of the miners, which the oper ators have refused to consider on the grounds that the committee was '"un patriotic." This committee has called on all officials of the various com panies here and will leave for Salt Lake this afternoon, returning to re port Sunday or Monday on the re sults of their conference. The morale of the strikers is splendid, with the general sentiment throughout the camp being in favor of standing firm until the demands are complied with. The only appar ent lack of unanimity is on the ques tion of the six-hour day, some of the strikers expressing a willingness to give way to the operators on this on; demand for shorter hours. The dance committee reported the big benefit ball held Wednesday (Continued on Page Two,) Lockout Continues Unabat ed With Labor Leaders in Complete Control of City. No Disorders Reported. (Special United Press Wire.) Winnipeg, May 19.-City of ficials and employers are under stood to have reaclwd an agree ment to submit to the 'unionists here in an effort to break the general strike which huts bound up the city since Thursday.

Some of the employers said they would quit business before meeting the demands of the strikers. F'reight houses and yards are clogged with shipments which can not be moved. Mail delivery has not been attempted and little foodstuffs have been delivered since Thursday. The shortage has caused some diffi cuty. Strikers will permit deliver ies only to hospitals and homes of sick. Communication lines are blocked except for intermittent use of pri vate wires and a few couriers. The mounted police arrived Fri day night and Saturday from all parts of the province, having been ordered here by the government.

Washington, May 19.-Facing tre mendous reconstruction tasks the sixty-sixth congress convened today.

Berne, May 19. -- The German press is continuing its virulent at tacks on Wilson, whom it blames fox the "severity" of the peace terms. "Wilson whom we praised so much, has become a statue of brass on a base on which may be written, 'Germany's executioner,' " was tba Deutsche Zeitung's typical comment. The NC-3 is believed to have been floating on the waters and lost in the fog for nearly 48 hours. If the craft is still on the sea the men aboard must be drenched and their drinking water and rations -running low. Even if found, it is believed that 48 hours drifting in the high seas would probably have so dam aged the plane that it will be im possible for it to continue its flight. The unexpected news of the dash of Hawker in his Sopwith stirred up intense interest all along the line of American trans-Atlantic communi cat ions. There was no sleep last night for anyone on the ships. Special United Press Wire.) Itenta Delgado, May 19.-The NC-1's S. 0. S. calls saying they were lost in the fog were received here Saturday. Four destroyers im mediately dashed to sea in search for the plane. Later messages re ceived Saturday said the plane was "now landing." It was assumed it was settling on the water to await assistance. (Special United Press Wire.) London, May 19.--"The Azores are Europe's outpost," said the Ex press. "A flight from the new to the old world has been accomplished. It's a great achievement and con gratulations are due to the plucky American sportsmen." Washington, May 19.-The NC-4, the "jinx boat," established a world's record in overseas flying when it landed Saturday at Horta. When word reached the navy department that this now famous "Nancy" had reached Horta, she had officially covered 2,200 miles of flight from Rockaway on her journey to Eng land. The leg covered since the night she left Trepassey is 1,200 miles. Lisbon, her nearest conti nental goal is 900 miles. (Special United Press Wire.) Horta, Azores, May 19.-Despite their privations as the result of be ing afloat three hours in their help less plane, the men of the NC-1, who were rescued and brought here, suf fered no ill effects. The NC-1 is in no shape to continue the flight. Naval officers believe the missing NC-3 might have hit Pico mountain, which is more than a mile high and which rises steeply from the sea. A systematic search is being made around the shores of that island. (Continued on Page Two) "This disgraceful peace is Wilsop's a peace," said the Taglisehe R4ad schau.
