A MASS OF WRECKAGE APPEARANCE PRESENTED OF THE FAMOUS AIRSHIP. Not Likely That Any More Experi ments Will Be Made This Winter. Speaking of yesterday's experiment at Wldewater with hi.4 aerodrome, Prof. Lang ley said today that he was not an eyewit ness of the experiment, having been de tained in Washington by business, but he added that on the report of Mr. Manly, who was immediately in charge, he Is a!;le to say that the 1-itter's first impression th it there had been defective balancing was cor rected by a minuter examination when the clutch which held the aerodrome on the launching ways and which should have re leased It at the instant of the fall, was found to be Injured. Prof. Langley con tinued: "The machinery was working perfectly FOR PROTECTION. Doherty Used Coal Oil to Ward Oft Females. The driving rain did not keep William Doherty In the house today. William is a pensioner, sixty-one years old. who has a room at 21-1 John Marshall place. He called at police headquarters about noon and presented a note to Captain Boardman that he had written at his home. "I merely enlled to extend my sympathy to President Roosevelt," he said, "and to say I am glad the scoundrel, Elliott, did not kill the President." The note he gave to the captain contained about what he said when he entered the office and expressed the belief that the captain was just the man to capture such people as Elliott. He was escorted to the second floor and Introduced to Sanitary Ottleer Frank. He told the sanitary officer and others of his experiences and was sent to the first precinct station to be examined by the physicians. Doherty had his hair and mustache sat urated with coal oil, he said, for the pur pose of keeping females from him. He said he had indulged in a little strong drink at times. "When I stick to tonic lieer," he sold, "I feel all right, but dark beer makes me cranny and I get mad with myself." He spoke of several cases of alleged White House cranks, and said he did not want to see a repetition of what happened to President McKlnley. He will be exam ined by the police surgeons later in the day. INSURANCE DEPARTMENT. Mr. Drake Submit3 His Estimates for the Year. The Commissioners have received from Mr. Thomas E. Drake, the superintendent of insurance, his estimates for the support of that department for the fiscal year end ing Juni' 30, 11XK5. Mr. Drake asks i total of ?i:i.s:o. Mr. Drake asks no increase for his own salary of $2,500. "The amended code," he says, "established the salary of the super intendent from July 1, 1!KI2, at $.'l,r00 Sec tion ".">4 of the code entitles the superin tendent to all license fees collected from fraternal beneficial associations, but they have not been taken, nor will they be by the present incumbent." The sum of $l,5CO is asked for the com pensation of Daniel Curry, examiner; $1, 4??i for George W. Ingham, statistician, and for Raymond K. Tongue, clerk. A new item of $0ij0 is asked fo.' a messenger. A clerk Is now detailed from the execu lve office of the District build'ng for that pur pose. Mr. Drake asks for nine forms of blank statements and $125 for nine forms of blank abstracts. He asks $100 for two telephones, one at his residence and one at his office. A new item is made of $1,0-10 for ap praisers for the department. The sum of }.''<#> is requested for pottage. PASTOR SECURED. Rev. S. C. Schaeffer in Charge at Con gress Heights and Oxon Hill. Rev. S. Caryle Schaeffer, who has had su pervision of ? Methodist charge near Leonard tow n. M<1.. lias been assigned fo the pastorates at the Methodist Episcopal churches in Congress Heights and Oxon Hill, the latter In Princa George"? county. Mil., both of which are vacant through the recent resignation of the charges.by Rev. Ellsworth E. Fisher. Mr. SchaefTer occu pied the pulpit for the rtrst time last night at Congress Heights, where the mem bers of the two churches gathered In large numbers to greet him. Mr. Schaeffer's selection. It Is stated, was brought al>out mainly through the efforts of Rev. Dr. Naylor, the presiding elder of the Washington district. Mr. Schaffer. who is not yet a member of the Baltimore con ference, expects to lit regularly ordained at the next session of that body. At the service last night he was Intro duced to the members present by Mr. George W. Fowler and Dr. Jas. Simpson, two of the leaders of the churches referred to. | and giving every reason to anticipate a suc | cessful flight, when this accident, due | wholly to the launching ways, drew the aerodrome abruptly downward at the mo ment of release and cast It Into the water near the houseboat. The statement that the machine failed for lack of power to fly was wholly a mistaken one. "The engine, the frame and all the more Important parts were practically uninjured. The engine is actually in good Working or der. The damage done was cortflned to the slighter portions like the canvas wlng3 and propellers, and these can be readily re placed. "The belief of those charged with the ex periments in the ultimate successful work ing of the machine is in no way afTected by this accident, which is one of the large chapter of accidents that beset the Initial stages of experiments so novel as the pres ent ones. It is chieiiy unfortunate as com ing near the end of the season when out door work of this sort is possible. "Whether the experiments will be con tinued this year or not has not yet been determined." Scene of the Wreck. Special Dispatch to The KT?-nIng Star. WIDE WATER, Va.. October a?In place of the elegant and well-kept mechanical bird which has proudly perched for three months inside the Langley houseboat, there rests today, scattered upon the floor and dangling limp from the scaffold or rope construction, the torn and tattered, the bent and beaten fragments of an elaborate and curious apparatus, which, in its pres ent state of disruption, can hardly be identified as Prof. Langley's pretentious aerodrome. And yet that Is what it is. Std, indeed, is the plight of the wonderful thing which was built to imitate in behavior the graceful soaring bird. Wet. bedraggled, rusted and misshapen, the mechanical bu? AGAIN IN SESSION. Committee of General Conference of Seventh Day Adventists. The executive committee of the general conference of the Seventh Day Adventist Church held a session this morning and again this afternoon at the Second Adven tist Church of this city, located at the corner of 12th and M streets northwest. The morning session opened at 0 o'clock and lasted until 11:30. when a recess was taken until 2::t0 o'clock In the afternoon. At 15 o'clock this evening the session of to day will adjourn. The meetings will be continued dally until October 21. The executive committee Is getting down to work, though little as yet been actually accomplished, besides the appointing of various committees, to which will be re ferred Important questions for later con sideration. There was some preliminary discussion this morning as to the time and arrangements for the week of prayer, which, it is understood, will be held some time near the Christmas holidays. This matter was referred to the proper com mittee. The following committees were appointed today: On finance, on foreign missions, on home missions, on Washington work. At the initial meeting, held yesterday. President Daniels of the council intro duced the work of the convention to the members of the church who had been In vited to attend, in the following words: "The question of Washington enterprises, or Washington work Is one of the most Important to come before us. When shall definite steps be taken to develop the work In Washington? We must determine, too. If rooms for medical missionary work shall be opened up in Washington before Con gress convenes." He Impressed upon the council the importance of the erection of the school. "We must form a school that our children shall not be compelled to at tend the worldly schools." he concluded. Among those who arrived yesterday for the first session when the president opened the meeting with a season of prayer, were: President A. G. Daniels of the general conference: A. T. Jones of Oakland, Cal.. president of the California conference, and a member of the executive committee: R. M. Kilgore of Graysville. Tenn.. president of the Georgia conference; Dr. David Paul son of Chicago, member of the executive committee: H. W. Cottrell of South Lan caster, Mass., president of the Atlantic Union: R. C. Porter of Hamilton. Mo., pres ident of the Missouri conference: I. H. Evans of Battle Creek. Mich., member of the executive committee and treasurer of the general conference: R. D. Hottel of Newmarket. Va.. president of the Virginia conference: A. E. Place of South Lancaster, Mass.. president of the Northern New Eng land conference: G. B. Thompson of To ronto. Can., president of the Ontario con ference: M. H. Thurston of Montreal, Can ada, president of the Canada Union; J. W. Watt of Burlington. Vt.. president of the Vermont conference: John G. Wiilker, pres ident of the North Dakota conference; A. J. Bristol of Battle Creek. Mich.; C. A. Bur man of South Dakota: E. J. Dryer, presi dent of the western Pennsylvania confer ence. and T E. Painter, state agent for Pennsylvania. Released on Bail. F. B. llardwick of Klnsile, Westmore land county, Va.. who shot and killed Will iam Gordon..colored. Tuesday last, has been released on bail under a bond of as the evidence showed in the preliminary trill be.'ore Justices Newton and Ivnrnh that the co!ored man had assaulted Mr. Hardwick, springing into his buggy and beiting and I choking him. and that Mr. Hardwick shot In self-defense. The negro lived over twen ty-four hours after receiving the fatal wound. Victim of Railway Wreck. Lewis W. Spies, who was inju:ed in the wreck of the inuil train near Danville, on the Southern railway, about ten days ago, dlfil in the Danville Hospital yesterday. Mr. Spies' leg was amputated a few days ago, and it was thought he would recover, but a turn for the worse came, and death followed quickly. He was a resident of Manassas. Va.. and his body was taken there for burial. zard is scarcely a semblance of Its former self. There is plenty of hard work for many, many days for the force of workmen which Prof. Manly .temporarily left on the ark last night. The designer and constructor of the motor will give it all his personal attention. As lie practically built the splen did gasoline engine with his own hands ha will repair It. Though this part of the ap paratus shared in the general misfortune incident to the plunge .It was not ruined. In fact, it is amazing that it escaped with no more injury than it received. The basic framework of the machine being heavier and stronger than the other parts, came out of the catastrophe with the least d image. With this to build upon, the reconstruction is not by any means a hopeless task. But apart fiom the main body practically nothing that wept to make up the airship as It was launched yesterday afternoon can be made over for use again. The wings, propellers and rudder are now masses of threads, rags and splinters. But fortunately these are the i?u;ts which, of the whole, are the least exjiejisive and the least dlfHcult of construction^ There are several pairs of propellers no# in the houseboat shop. These, however, ar^'Tfttft of the improved type which Prof.'lifattlf perfected just before the experiment.'"- BOt it does not require more than three <>r fout days to make a pair of propellers. There are now at least two of the big wings in the shop. The work of producing a wing is much more dif ficult and t^Jkes more time than that of constructing'a pafr of screws. The same is true of the nudiMr. Prof. Manly, when seen at this place just before boarding a train for Washington, de clined to indicate* except In a general way what would'be Hie plans of Prof. Langley and himseU-. with regard to the future of the work. .Having-declared that ills con fidence in th"^ ultimate success of tlie efTort was unshakfen he let that rest. But It is be lieved hereJ;1hat the operations at Wide water are rMlly ait an end,for this season at least. Winter w|H be at hand before the aerodrome_ ppt> repaired and,,,in severe weather airship experiments on the river here are out bfr tlie question. AMENDS THE RECOMMENDATION. i 1 Commissioner West's Comment on Policeman Spriggs' Offense. Major Sylvester has forwarded to the Commissioner* the trial papers in the case of Police Private Daniel Spriggs. who was declared to be guilty of gross neglect of duty, in that he was found asleep in a hall way. Major Sylvester recommended a fine of $25, to be paid in five monthly install ments, and that the officer be deprived of five days' leave of absence to which he would otherwise be entitled, and warned against a repetition of the offense. Commissioner West, in passing upon the case, says: "A police oflirer who admits that lie slept In a hallvay ofc u house for about one hour, when he was supposed to be on duty, should, in my Judgment, be dismissed. As it is the wish of the major and superinten dent of police in this case that a fine should be Imposed, I approve the recommendation; but instead of warning the officer against a repetition of the offense he should be warned that a repetition of the offense will subject him to immediate dismissal." FOREIGNER IN TROUBLE. Fined. $50 tor Carrying a Concealed Weapon. Joseph Scharf. a native of Germany who has been in this country only afcout ten days, came to grief in the monument grounds about t? o'clock last evening when Mounted Policeman jPat Creagh found him peeling an apple with a dirk knife. The officer en gaged the man in conversation and found that the foreigner had a loaded revolver in his hip pocket. He was placed under arrest and remained in a cell at the third precinct police station until this morning, when he was transferred to the Police Court and arraigned before Judge Kimball on the charge of carrying concealed weapons. "I carried the weapon to protect myself against robbers." he told the court through an Interpreter. "We don't have them over here," he was told "But I was told this was a dangerous country." was the reply. "Tell him he will have to pay a fine of $.10." the court instructed the interpreter. Two months on the farm were named as the equivalent. Report on a Claim. Major Sylvester has returned to the Com missioners tht> p ipers in the claim of Dr. A. R. Collins of -100 E street southwest for reimbursement on account of damage to a shed by a tire in 'tlie fourth police precinct station. Actihg upon reports from the po lice department, Auditor Garrison recom mended that the claim for $10 be allowed. Commissioner West, however, referred the papers again to faajor Sylvester, asking whether there was'any responsibility on the part of the TVistrifct or its agents for the fire by which th* alleged damages were oc casioned. In1 response to this Major Syl vester says: "Every pre^auth?ti was taken by the Dis trict agents at this precinct against the fire, they belrig unable In any way to guard against combustion, as that appears to have been the cause. If the complainant's property was injured through the storage of material which It is unusual to place in quantities in the residence neighborhoods it appears to me that in equity the small amount asked should be allowed. To my ir.lrid. each case of this kind should stand on its own merits." The Commissioners will probably inquire further into the matter before making any settlement. Mr. Rhodes' Answer. In connection with the proceedings for maintenance Instituted by Mary E. Rhodes against Daniel Rhodes, the latter has filed answer. Mr. Rhodes characterises the es sential particulars of his wife's petition as incorrect-und untruthful. He declares tfiat she has contracted debts which he his be?n obliged to qssume. with the result that he is greatly embarrassed. It Lansburgh & Bro. This Bargain Bay is All Important.
