Plane Descends at Mineola

I erfbrd B. Hartz, who started from
I Washington at 10 o'clock this morn
ing on his R.flOft-mile flight around the
borders of the United States in a
two - engined Martin bombing plane,
landed at Hazelhurst Field here at
12:47 this afternoon, and will start
for Augusta, Maine, about 7 o'clock
tomorrow morning. From there th<
next jdmp will be to Cleveland; thence
to Duluth. to Seattle, to San Diego,
to San Antonio, to Miami, and then
back to Washington.
With Col. Hartz are Ernest E. Har
mon and Lieut. Lotha A. Smith, re
serve pilots: John Harding, master
electrician, and Sergt. Jeremiah To
bias. mechanic.
Speed of lOO Mile* an Hoar.
The plane carries 300 gallons of
pasoline. sufficient for ten hours in
the air. It has twin twelve-cylin
der liberty motors of 420 horse
power each, capable of a speed of
100 miles an hour.
The proposed flight is the longest
i yet attempted by the army Air
] Service. The route lies over thirty
| one States, thirty-six mountains,
j twenty-seven railroads and eighty
j eight rivers.
It has been expected the plane
would reach Augusta this evening,
j but the plan of completing the first
leg today was abandoned after
landing here. A leak in the oil
and water tanks developed as the
plane was passing over Baltimore
and Sergt. Tobias calmly made his
way out on the eighty-flve-foot
wing, swung himself to the wires
j below and made repairs just as if j
the plane were in its hangar in- I
stead of rushing through the air at j
a ninety-mile-an-hour clip with the
j earth some .">,000 feet below.

I Coast States Triumph in
Back Pay Fight.
| Director General Burleson, of the
j Telephone and Telegraph Administra
; tion. has ordered back pay to January
11, 1919, for telephone operators in five
i States on the Pacific Coast, it was
announced last night by Miss Julia
O'Connor, president of the organized
telephone operators.
This decision was reached at a con
ference with Miss O'Connor, John J.
? Purcell, president of the International
| Brotherhood of Electrical Workers,
! and the Wire Control Board. i
In granting the back pay, the Wire |
; Board recognises the claim of 12,000
| operators in the States of Washington, j
Idaho. Oregon, Nevada and California j
for an increase dating from the ex- j
j piration of the union's former contract |
I with the companies. January 1, 1919, j

Inspectors Finally Revoke
Charters of "Lord Balti
more" and "The Penn."
Expert Says Carriers Have
Failed to Pass Stability
Summary revocation of the charters
of the steamers "Lord Baltimore" and
"The Penn," by the U. S. Steamboat
Inspection Service, yesterday disclosed
that Washingtonians have been travel
ing on the Potomac to Norfolk, Va.,
on craft which have menaced the lives
I of thousands of slimmer vacationists,
i These steamers, comprising the fleet (
' of the Washington and Southern Navi
gation Company, have been popular
with those seeking coastwise recrea- i
tion on week-end trips.
Fail to Pau Testa.
George Uhler. supervising inspec
tor general of the Steamboat In-1
spection Service for the Depart
ment of Commerce, admitted last
night that both of the river ear
ners had failed \o pass "stability
test$" made on last Friday and
Sunday by his agents. |
The "Ix>rd Baltimore" was with
drawn from service about two I
weeks a^ro. ostensibly for overhaul? j
Both steamers have been in the ,
service on the Norfolk-^ ashington j
route since May 29. How they j
were passed as seaworthy and ca- j
pablc of carrying approximately 700
I excursionists on regular trips is J
something that the supervising in
i spector general will investigate, i
Since they have been in the serv
| ice both boats have encountered
? so many minor difficulties and time
j delaying breakdowns as to occasion
much unfavorable comment.
! When the "Penn" was withdrawn
from tTie service an announcement
was issued by the company that
steps were being made to replace it
with a more modern and commodl
; ous steamer.
Officer* Ape Mum.
Officials of the Washington &
I Southern Navigation Company were |
reticent last night about the future,
of the suspended steamers. It was
intimated no attempt would be |
made to remodel or repair the boats ;
to conform to government regula
tions. Instead, it was intimated the
boats removed from the river serv- (
ice would be replaced.
Supervising Inspector Uhler de
clared he was making an investiga
tion of the service and that officials (
reports detailing the result of the,
inspections would be issued today.

Of His New York

I has discovered a new type of land- j
j lord. He is a real, honest to good- j

ing. and if Nafhan Hirsch. chairman
j of the mayor's committee on rent j
profiteering, has any sayso this ex
I traordinary person will have his
I picture hung In the Hall of Fame.
He is A. Aaronson. He not only
irefused to accept increases in renti
from his tenants, some eighty-six
! in all. but he took forty of them j
out to dinner just to show them
I that he was a good fellow and that
he desired the good will and friend
ship of the tenants rather than their
hard earned dollars. J
Aaronson controls a practically
new apartment house. It is a first- |
1 class building.

The tenants have been enjoying
moderate rents, some of them pay
ing $9.50 and some $10 a room. Last
! year, according to Mr. Aaronson.
the house was operated at a loss,
so he decided that he would increase
| the rents $2 a month. Forty of the
tenants In the house complained to
the mayor's committee and Mr.
Aaronson was invited to appear.
The landlord learned from Chair
man Hirsch that the tenants had
complained of the increase.
"All right," Mr. Aaronson de
clared. . "If they cannot pay the in
crease I will agree that they remain
In my house at an average rental of
$9.50 to $10.50 per room."

against the office of the Comptroller
of the Currency by the Riggs Bank.
He referred especially to the cus
tom of the Riggs Bank of keeping
