CLAIMS OF THIS CITY Maj. Squier Directed to Examine Possible Courses. LAND NEAR BENNING VIEWED Many Places Competing for the Meet of the Foremost Aviators Next Year. The committee of the Aero Club which will co-operate with the Chamber of Com ^ merce in bringing the aerial races to ' Washington if possible next year, met in the office of Charles J. Bell this forenoon. There were present Charles J. Bell, Dr. Albert Zahm, John Barrett, director of the bureau of American republics, and Prof. Willis Moore, chief of the weather bureau. The committee appointed as a subcom mittee Maj. George O. Squier of the signal service, who will ^examine the sites around Wasnington, where the aerial car nival might be held and report at the next meeting of the committee. This meeting will be held in conjunction with a similar committee of the Chamber of Commerce next Tuesday at 11:30 in Mr. Bell's office. He is a vice president of the Chamber of Commerce, as "well as a member of the board of directors of the Aero Club, and thus will in a measure represent both bodies. Message to Aero Club. One thing that was done by the meet ing was to send a telegram to the Aero Club of America in New York saying that Washington intended to make a bid for the aviation carnival next year, and asking that any decision as to the place of holding the meet be delayed until Washington could be heard from. There is already a great deal of com petition for the meet among the cities. Xew York. Chicago, St. Louis, Indianap olis and Cincinnati are already in the field and they are all prepared to offer big guarantees for the prizes and other expenses. There probably will be noth ing definite decided until after the prin cipal officers of the Aero Club of Ameri ca are all reassembled in New } ork, but the people in Washington who want the meet here, are trying to be prepared for quick action when the time comes. Inspecting Ground Near Benning. Of course the first essential for the aviation meeting In Washington is a proper course. It looks to the outsider as though almost any location ought to do for a sky race, as all roads look alike in the air. but aviation is not yet near enough to an exact science for the pilots <f heavier-than-air machines to alto gether disregard the ground, and they wish a tolerably level stretch of coun trv to fly over. Dr. A. P. Zahm of the Washington Aero Club yesterday went over part of the ground around Benning and promised tnrjay that he would inspect the ground north of the race track as far as College l'ark. where the government will hold its training flights. This locality promises well so far as the ground for the course is concerned In case this stretch were selected the finish line would be inside the race track grounds, and the course would be north toward College Park. The track has the advantage that there is not only a good stretch for starting and landing, but there is also abundant building room for housing all the machines and men l:kely to be present at the meet. Potomac Park Courses. The other two possible courses are around the Potomac Park and from the Potomac Park across the river into Vir ginia. If the aviators do not mind cross ing and recrossing the river there is no reason why ahundant space could not be HOW MAE EDNA WILDER GOT RID OF A DOUBLE CHIN Without Dieting, Internal Reme dies, Face Straps or Physical Culture?An Interesting Story for Fleshy People. "I removed my double chit and reduced thirty pounds in less than s:x week*," says Mae Edna Wilder, who stand* tire fe?t high, weighs 120 pounds and is a picture of perfect health. "I <l'd this by a process which is m* own discov ery a process of external application. I simply apply the treatment to any part of the body where superfluous flesh exists and it vanishes a? if by magic. Five minutes every other day for two weeks is all the time needed, and one's most intimate friends need not know anything about it. I am so grateful for my own relief that 1 will give five advice to any one who suffers as T did.

Park itself happens to be almost exactly ten kilometers around, and there could be a kite-shaped track laid out here th.it would not cross the water at all except a very small stretch of back water from the tidal basin that would be almost a negligible quantity. Both of these latter courses have the advantage that they are almost in the heart of the ctiy. and that is a decided consideration with visitors. There would have to be a large amount of money guaranteed for prizes and other expenses and the management would depend largely on the gate receipts for reim bursement. A course that was so easy of access, besides being so picturesque, would insure a big attendance at all times. < Unofficial inquiries have been made as to the attitude of the government to ward the erecting of stands and the charging of admission to inclosures in the park, and while this is a govern ment reservation, it is thought there will be no trouble on that score. There have been expressions of opin ion from many of the prominent busi ness men of Washington on holding the race here, and there is such a una nimity of opinion that the views express ed all read about alike. The meet will be the derby of the air, and Washing ton is the one city of the country where such an event should be held, when the majority of the visiting com petitors will be foreigners. Preparation, at College Park. The work of preparing for the gov ernment training flights at College Park is progressing slowly. Lieut. Benjamin D. Foulois, who, with Lieut. Lahm, was to have been trained in handling the Wright aeroplane, having been ordered abroad, his place will be taken by Lieut. Humphreys of the Engineer Corps. The bids for the aeroplane shed at College Park are to be opened Tues day, and the work will be completed in ten days or more. After that Wil bur Wright will be summoned to Wash ington and the training will begin if the weather and Mr. Wright agree. In the meantime Wilbur Wright is in Day ton sawing wood for aeroplanes, a num ber of which have been ordered by wealthy amateurs. ? WORRIED BY ILL-HEALTH. William Stockett Writes Message to His Mother and Shoots Himself. "I am sorry to have committed such an act, but I was worried nearly to death. Mother, please forgive me, for I was tired." After writing this message to his mother last night William Stockett, col ored, shot himself in the head. He was standing in front \>f 700 4th street north west. Sergt. Curry and Policeman Mahaney of the sixth precinct had noticed that the conduct of the man was peculiar and were not far away when Stockett fired. The bullet entered just behind the left ear and came out over the eye. The two policemen rushed up and sum moned the patrol wagon from the sixth precinct station and Stockett was taken to the Casualty Hospital, where he be came unconscious. This morning it was said he had small chance of recovery, it is said that Stockett, who was a candy maker, living at 740 Oth street, gave up his employment yesterday because of continued ill-health, and last night be fore leaving home he showed signs of despondency. His friends believe he shot himself because he feared he would not i get well. BARGES ON THEIR WAY HERE. They Will Load Coal at This City for New England. The tug Piedmont of the fleet of the Consolidation Coal Company is on its way down the coast from Boston with a tow of light barges for this city and Bal timore to load coal for New England points. Barge No. 10 is to come here, and it is thought that it will be at Point Lookout, ready to be brought to this city, tonight or tomorrow. As soon as the boat reaches this city it will go under the coal chutes at the Georgetown piers of the Consolidation Coal Company and will take aboard about 1,600 tons of the fuel. While some little of the many thousand tons of coal shipped from this city this season to the towns on the coast of New Eng land has been moved in coasting schoon ers, by far the greater part of the fuel has been carried from this city to Boston, Portland and other points by the big ( barges of the coal company. Many more tons remain to be shipped from this city | before the season ends. GOING TO CAPE COD. Dredge Gen. Mackenzie finishes Work Near Fredericksburg. The big hydraulic dredge Oen.

NEW AUTO FIRE ENGINE HERE, Giving a Demonstration. NEW TYPE FIRE ENGINE Exhibition of Motor for the Benefit of Officials. ADOPTION HERE FAVORED Commissioner West Believes the In vestment Will Be Wise. COMPARISON MADE OF COST Horse-Drawn Apparatus and Motor Contrasted ? Witnesses of Demonstration All Pleased. The adoption of motor fire apparatus for the local department, to be pur chased as new equipment is needed, is favored by Commissioner West. He believes that the other members of the board of Commissioners will agree to the adoption of this policy. Economy in the operation of, the Are department, Commissioner West is con vinced, Is the chief argument for the adoption of motor fire engines and hose wagons in preference to horse-drawn ones. He was convinced of their su periority at a demonstration gi\en by a motor fire engine of the American Mo tor Fire Apparatus Company of Pitts burg at 14th and B streets this morn ing. For an hour and a half he watch ed u.e running of the vehicle around squares* and through crowded thorough fares, and Its operation in throwing huge streams of water, and returned to FTJNEBAL OF DR. BALL. Services Will Be Held at Family Home Monday Morning. Funeral services for Dr. Charles Albert Ball, who died yesterday after an ill ness of two years, will be held Monday morning at 11 o'clock, at the family home, 233 G street northwest. Rev. Dr. Walter G. McNeil, pastor of the Wesley Chapel Methodist Episcopal Church, will officiate. The interment will be at Congressional cemetery. The funeral services will be conducted under the auspices of the Dr. Charles A. Ball. Masonic fraternity. The pallbearers will be selected from Dawson Lodge, No. 1?, Eureka Chapter, No. 4, and De Molay Commandery, of which bodies Dr. Ball was a member. Dr. Ball was born in Alexandria coun ty, Va? in 1851, but lived in this city since he was three yearS old. His father was Robert Ball, for many years warden of the District jail. Dr. Ball was a member of a distinguished family, and was a descendant of Mary Ball Washing ton, mother of George Washington. After graduating from the Central High School, Dr. Ball attended the medical school of Columbian University and re ceived the degree of M. D. in 1878. He had been practicing medicine in this city for thirty years. Dr. Ball leaves three sisters, Mrs. Mary E. Huyatt. Miss Clark E.. Ball and Miss Florence Ball, all of whom lived with their brother on G street. SHOBT WEIGHT ICE SALES. Charges Against Driven and Helper 'of American Wagon. The arrest of Richard Hale and Ray mond Suthard, driver and helper for the American Ice Company, on a charge of selling and delivering short-weight ice at the Department of Agriculture yesterday, was reported to the Commissioners yes terday afternoon by the sealer of weights and measures, W. C. Haskell. The defendants were required to put up $00 collateral each for their appearance in the Police Court today. Three bureaus of the Agriculture De partment, Sealer Haskell reported, pur chased 1,350 pounds of Ice. The amount delivered to them was 253 pounds short, he asserts. Many peaches are now being shipped from points along the Washington coun ty, Md., branch of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, the average being about five carloads daily. These peaches go mostly to Washington, Baltimore, Phila | delphia and New York, with an occa I sional carload to the Pittsburg market. The Engine. his office enthusiastic in his praise of motor fire-fighting apparatus. Cost of the Engine. The initial cost of the motor fire en gine exhibited this morning and of a horse-drawn engine of about the same power is approximately the same. .$7,500. In the case of the horse-drawn vehicles, he points out, six horses must be pur chased, three for the engine, two for the hose wa.Ton and one to be held in reserve, and these will cost $1,600. As the motor tire engines are a combined engine and hose wagon, each one replaces two of the old-type vehicles. This $1,600 cost is therefore saved. #To operate a horse drawn engine, four men are required?a driver and hostler, a fireman, an engineer and an assistant engineer. In the case of the motor fire engine one man per forms all these functions, acting as chauf feur when on the way to the fire and as engineer when the engine and pump are working at the fire. By the simple turn ing of a small throttle the engine can be turned from its use to move the machine to use to drive the pump. The cost of operating the motor en gine, Commissioner West also pointed out, is much less than for operating the present form of steam engine. While the engine is pumping water on a fire for an hour it uses about five gallons of gasoline, and that costs about 75 cents. To operate a steam horse-drawn engine an hour at a fire a ton of coal is used, and it costs the District $5.50. Favorable to Adoption. After considering these facts and wit nessing the demonstration this morning, Commissioner West declared that all the arguments point to the adoption of motor fire apparatus. The District appropri ation act provides $5,500 for the pur chase of a new fire engine, and Com ARMY AND NAVY NEWS. Army Orders. Cant. Elmer W.

Fire Chief Wagner, who also witnessed the demonstration this morning, con cluded that the speed of the motor ve hicles made it possible for each such fire engine to cover a much larger territory than could be covered by a horse-drawn vehicle, because the motor engine would cover in Ave or six minutes a distance that a horse-drawn engine could not go in half an hour. The tire chief was par ticularly impressed with the efficiency of the motor. Are engine in suburban dis tricts. Care to Be Exercised. While the officials present all expressed themselves as much impressed by the demonstration of the particular engine In Washington today, they declared that all types of motor fire apparatus will be considered before any are bought. During the demonstration this morning the engine threw four streams most of the time, and nozzles of several different sizes were used. It was found that the pump had a capacity of 6T?o gallons of water per minute. The demonstrator of the engine was Thomas L. Pfarr, jr., manager of the company which manu factures the machine. The engine left Washington this afternoon for Reading, Pa., where it will give a demonstration Monday. Among thoBe who witnessed the test this morning were Commissioner West, Capt. Martvham, acting engineer com missioner; Fire Chief Frank J. Wagner, T. M. Robinson, superintendent of ma chinery; William F. Gude, president of the Chamber of Commerce; W. A.

Association Formed to Secure "Re medial Patent Legislation." i At a meeting of the Inventors' Pro tective Association last night at Flynn's Hall, J>36 8th street northwest. William P. Armstrong was elected president and Joseph J. O'Brien secretary. A constitution was adopted in which the objects of the organization were set forth?to promote the interests of inventors, to effect economy in secur ing patents, to bring about favorable and remedial patent legislation, to "labor for the correction of abuses in current methods of obtaining, operating and selling patents" and to secure co operation among the members for mutual protection. It was decided to make a permanent organization under the name of the In ventors' League. Another plan of the league is the collection and publication of the history of inventive art and the preservation of the literature of in vention. There are to be three classes of mem bers in the league. Class 1 will em brace those to whom a patent has act ually been issued, class U consists of inventors who have a patent pending and class 3 consists of those who are planning to get a patent, but who haven't been successful yet. Class 1 will have a vote in the affairs of tiie society. The other classes cannot vote, but the second class may have a voice at meetings of the organization. PROTECTION AGAINST FIRE.
