POSTPONED POR A DAY
HIGH WIND RESULTS IN DELATING
BALLOON FLIGHT.
Larce Throne of Spectators on Hand
t> D ?
to Witness Ascent?Prospects
for Tomorrow.
Not having any particular business on
the north coast of Africa, the aeronauts,
who were to have made an ascension from
the gas works at 12th and M streets southeast
at 10 o'clock this morning, delayed
the trial. It is to take place at the same
time tomorrow, weather conditions being
favorable, and the weather bureau says they
will be. It was understood from the weather
bureau that the conditions would be
favorable this morning, but since Prof. Willis
Moore sustained a fracture of his arm
last week, the forecasts. It is declared by
some, have not been as accurate as was ,
possible. There may be no connection be- |
tween the fractured arm and the twisted i
predictions, but the bureau missed its gue?s j
today to the extent of causing about a j
thousand people to proceed to the vicinity :
of the gaa works for nothing.
Yes, it blew some. Also it was cold. The j
official thermometer at the weather bureau j
recorded only 10 degrees below freezing, '
but there was not i.n individual of the j
crowd who clawed his or her fruitless way ;
up the hill by the gas works who would I
not have vouched for zero weather, with a !
leaning to minus quantities.
25-Knot Breeze Blew.
A twenty-five-knot breeze blew from tli ;
northwest. It switched around to due nort i !
i
and the air became a little colder. Then it i
veered over to nor" nor'west and got colder
still. The gas company hail made all the
preparations that It could for the event.
There was a line of eight-inch piping rufi
out of the window of the gas house and
supported on skids to a vacant lot on the
starboard beam of the gasometer. The lot
was one of the clay bluffs overlooking the
river and had been inclosed with a wire
fence and a detail of policemen to keep out
the too curious. In the center of the field
there was a wooden flooring, whence the
inflation was to have been made. Around
it were piled bags of sand to act as ballast.
Kverything was ready, even the crowd.
Washington furnished that.
It was more or less like the circus. All
' the children wanted to see the show and
all the grown people went along merely to
see to it that the children saw it. There
were marines from the barracks, blue jackets
and policemen, soldiers from the arsenal
and citizens in droves. There probably
were not 1.000 there all at one time, but
they kept coming and going in a. steady
stream, climbing the wind-swept slope of
the hill and drifting down again when they
could stand the cold and waiting no longer.
The center of attraction was Mr. J. C.
McCoy of New York and Leo Stevens of
aeronautic fame, who was to have acrnm
pan it'll him. Courtand Field Bishop of the
Aero Club ranif over from New York for
the occasion, but true to his prediction of
the previous day, the wind was too high
and in the wrong direction. So the trial
could not be made.
Effort to Thaw OutMr.
McCoy and Mr. Stevens were lost in
trying to iind their way to the gas works,
and did not appear till o'clock. When
they did arrive they were unrecognize 1
except by a few of tlie ele?t. They took |
one look at the lield and another at the sky.
said everything but the wind was in very
nice shape, and then went over to the gas
house office to thaw out. Mr. McCoy said
that he could have made the trip in the
balloon easily enough, but he could not
have held down the bag while It was being
The War Department had a number of
experts from the balloon corps at the scene,
i Including Col. Rc-ber, Capt. Chandler and
Maj. Russell. The Secretary of War was
expected, but he waited for a telephone
message to start, and was tinaliy told that
the trip was off for the day, so he did not
make the trip.
Mr. William Hart of the gas company
was on hand to welcome the visitors, among
whom, in addition to those mentioned, were
August Post, the secretary of the Aero
Club. Colgate Hoyt and Ilenry W. Shoemaker.
MRS. HODGSON LOCATED.
Her Sister Informed That She is in
Springfield, Mass.
A letter that was written in Springfield,
Mass and mailed to Mrs. Jennie Bray, living
at 7?*9 8tli street southeast, told the recipient
that her sister, Mrs. Nellie A. Hodgson,
who was reported missing, as told in
yesterday's Star, was in the Massachusetts
city, and that she would never return to
her relatives. Nothing was said in the letter
about the whereabouts of John E. Cook,
the boarder at Mrs. Bray's, who disappeared
about the time that Mrs. Hodgson
went away. Mrs. l^fay told a Star reporter
this morning that she had received the letter,
and lliat she was not troubled over the
disappearance of her sister. She also said
he was not disturbed over the loss of the
money, about that was left by her
father. William A. Mann, who died at his
home on the Conduit road about four weeks
ago.
Mrs. Bray and her sister came here from
her home. Rkhmondville, N. Y., to see her
father, who was 111. She nursed him during
his last llness, Mrs. Bray said, and it was
during that time that her father made his
will. The will was so *iade that the cash
was left to Mrs Hodgson, she (Mrs. Bray)
being left only About the time her
boarder (Cook* and her sister left the house,
he said, a<."> gold pleee that belonged to her
mother also disappeared. A warrant charging
Mrs. Hodgson with the alleged theft of

hands of Detective Evans.

yean* of age. and liis vife recently celebrated
her thirtieth birthday. He was in
the hotel business at Calverton, Va.. and lie
< also had property Interests at Fort Myer,
where Cook was born. After retiring from
business Hodgson purchased u small farm
near Saratoga, ami was living happily with
his wife and child, when his wife was summoned
here because of the Illness of her
father. He came here yesterday to learn
what he could about his wife's disappearance.
and returned home last night.

Mr. Warren rather warmly resented the

he said, he did not have an acre of illegally

but Admits Drinking It.
"I didn't steal it, but I drank it," was
the plea entered by James Powell, colored,
when he was arraigned in the Police Court
today on a charge of stealing a case of
whisky. Judge Mullowny found him guilty
of the larceny and ordered him to be committed
to jail for four months.
Powell's arrest was occasioncd by his
generosity. After he had obtained two bottles
from the case of whisky he visited
some friends on G street southwest and
treated them. Others witnessed the drinking
of the liquor, and the matter was
flhally brought to the attention of Police
