Aeronauts Dropped Into the
Hudson After Fall Down
Journal Special ervio.
New York, May 16.Nothing so thril
ling in the ballooning annals of this
country has happened recently as the
flight of Le Stevens and Tracey A
Tisdell, professional aeronauts, yester-
Their balloon, on a moving picture
errand, was torn open on the sharp edge
of the palisades, opposite Hastings,
fell like a wounded bird down the
sheer 300-foot cliff, smashed the picture
apparatus, tore loose from its anchor,
nearly brained its two occupants a doz
en times in a field of rock at the foot
of the cliff and finally dragged them
into the river itself, where they un
doubtedly would have drowned if the
water had been deeper.
Neither man was hurt. Th balloon
was badly torn and the balloonists lost
all the ballast they carried with them,
valuables and otherwise. Two extreme
ly costly instruments for registering al
titude, the only ones of their sort in
the country, were ruined.
The two aeronauts found themselves
in water breast deep and had no great
difficulty in getting ashore.
Tisdell turned the crank of his pic
ture machine up to the very moment
when, in trying to toss it out on a ledge
half wa\ down the cliff, he only suc
ceeded dashing it to pieces on the
rocks below.
The ascension was made at 2:25 p.m.,
in Stevens' 25.000-cubic foot balloon,
Mrs. Stevens, Charles Levee, the French
aeronaut Dr. Julian Thomas fnd
several hundred other persons were
present to see the balloonists off.

New York, ay 16.After working
on the case for we"ks, central office
detectives have got to the bottom of a
series of thefts by which the Morgan
line steamship company has lost be
tween $50:000 and $3 00,000. Five men
are now in the Tombs charged with
complicity in the larcenies. They are
Abraham Davis and James O'Brien,
clerks in the Morgan line employ, each
of whom is held in $15,000 bail for
amination, and three expressmen, Adri
an E Post of North Bergen, N. J.
Frederick Palm, Brooklyn, and Daniel
Stratton of Manhattan. The bail of the
last three is fixed at $10,000 each.
Assistant District Attorney Murphy,
who will prosecute the prisoners, be
lieves that their activities extended
much further than the Morgan line, as
the Clyde line and other steamship
companies report similar losses.
The method by which the Morgan line
was robbed is said to have been this:
Certain expressmen, after receiving
merchandise to deliver at the pier,
would take it instead to a fence,''
which is said to have been located in
Forsythc street. There a checker, who
was in the scheme, would O. K. the bill

he would substitute upon the receipts
the name of some other clerk. The thefts
consisted principally of silk and woolen

"Yesterday Constable Pearse and I
had come to the end of the trail thru
timber and we separated, Pearse going
toward Grand Prairie and I toward
Douglas Lake. I was moving slowlv,
keeping a sharp lookout, when I sud
denly came upon them.
"They had not seen me, so in order
to make sure of their identity I went
back on the trail they had been taking,
until I assured myself that the tracks
were the same. There they were,
with hobnailed boots and the slim wom
anish soles on the third one.
I knew we were sure of our men so
I rode back to secure assistance from
the mounted police. I was a good
thing I didn't tackle them alone.
After I made connections with the red
coats, we returned and, taking up the
trail, we came upon them in a thicket.
The camp was thickly surrounded
and a fusilade of shots showed they in
tended to put up a long fight. This
intention was altered after a score of
shots had been exchanged, and one of
the men had gone down. They
then surrendered. Th old man was
