ATLANTIC CITY. July 13.?Glenn H. s<
Cur ties dominated the closing day of the p
Atlantic City aviation meet. Flying at a al
height of 400 feet and traveling at a j
maximum speed of forty miles an hour, ol
he played a war game that thrilled a tl
great audience. He carried oranges as pi
bombs." A sixteen-foot lifeboat, manned
by scarlet-coated guards, and a ?
group of photographers that had followed
him out as far as they could go, j
with their cameras, formed his targets.
A fleet of yachts dancfng half a mile
out was to have shared his attention, but
the fear of accident to some passenger
aboard them deterred him from doing tl
more than tossing one orange at this t,
"enemy" as a warning "shot across his
bows." g(
The flrst bomb cast at the lifeboat fell p,
within twenty feet of it, and before the r<
spray had been swept away Curtlss was dj
out of all but rifle range, and to a rifle
he woud have offered about as good a
target as a gull.
But Fifteen Feet Away. t,
On the second circle Curtiss dropped tl
another bomb that fell about fifteen feet
on the otlver side of the boat, whose tl
location had been changed materially. tl
A third bomb on the tnira circle came ?
within ten feet, and Curtiss swooped tl
away down the beach to "attack
troops" represented by the photographers.
The bomb thrown at them was
swept a dozen feet out of plumb by the j
momentum of the biplane, but it fell so
close that the photographers were splattered
as the orange was dashed to a
pulp on the beach. f
On a second round Curtiss threw three ^
more bombs at the lifeboat, and worked g
in so close to his mark that the last shot d
s'ruck within three feet of the boat. t
Gen. William Allen Jones, retired, for- w
inerly of the United States Engineer
Corps, who is an advocate of aeroplanes c
for coast defense, stated after the trials o
his belief that the air machine has s
proved its efficacy.
"The armored battleship is approach- B
ing its last days as an engine of attack s
against a city or country guarded by ,
aeroplanes," he said. "Glenn Curtiss or 1
any other expert aviator oould drop high t
explosives on the decks or down the funnels
of a warship as easily as Curtiss to- .
! dav tossed oranges within a few (eet of ?
I the yacht. * j]
Protection to Coast Cities.

would absolutely protect any coast {j
city. A night flight by such a fleet would p

of battleships, but could also demoralise b

Pfitsner. who was about thirty-flvi
years old, and formerly an officer in tin
Hungarian artillery, had completely mas

had invented a monoplane. The engine
with which Glen Curtiss won the Bennet

he was unable successfully to manage hi:
air craft. After his last accident he toh
Hiliard. his fellow-aviator, that thi
"game had him beaten."
Since his last accident, Saturday, wliei
he was nearly killed, he had avoidec
every one.
j He left Plum Islaial early yesterda:
morning, going direct to one of th<
yachts In the harbor. Several hour
afterward the skiff was picked up by t
row boat from the Corinthian Yacht Ciub
well outside '-he harbor.
Note Found in Boat.
Pfitsner had disappeared. In the boa
was found itis coat and hat and a not<
which said: "Whoever finds this boa

In the bottom of the boat was an auto

charged. I'fltsner had returned to thi
camp at Plum Island one night in a tt
of despondency, with the gun in his ham
and a towel soaked with blood.
It is .thought that he had already at
tempted suicide once by shooting him
self, but had failed to inflict a serioui
wound. To make certain yesterday, it i
believed that he balanced himself 011 th>
edge of the boat, flred the revolver a
himself, and then tumbled overboard t<
drown, if the bullet failed.
The harbor was carefully patroled afte
the discovery of the skiff in the hope o
finding the body. Unless the exact plac
where he fell from the boat Is ascertains
there is small likelihood of its recovery
Pfltaner's suicide is due, according t<
his companions at Plum Islands, to t
conviction .that he was somehow physic
ally unable to attain perfect control o
an airship.
This conviction +?as been growing 01
him with every accident. Recently h

eight years, and on the lapel his

e of the United Confederate Veterans. h
f The venerable fighter, who gave his
f name as Theodore Carter, and his home
- i address as Richmond, had an exciting
experience with a gang of toughs out | "
a on the eastern commons last evening, j
e but he came out of the fray a victor, j 1
- notwithstanding the disparity of num- f
? bers against him and his advanced "
? years. *
t Mr. Carter wus returning over the n
t Bladensburg pike from Mount Olivet
9 cemetery, where some of his relatives 1
1 are sleeping, when he was halted by J?
e five rough-looking young fellows. One f
of them demanded the 'loan" of 10 a
i cents for a "growler" of beer.
1 "You young men should be engaged
in better business than stopping people
and demanding money for drink," the
' southern veteran exclaimed. o
9 "Aw. don't git gay wid us," responded v
s the spokesman of the toughs, "or we'll
i stand yer on yer head."
Hostilities Begin. v
Carter leaned on ills cane and in a J
tone of contempt said: p
1 "Begone out of this or 1 will break t
9 some of your rascally heads."
1 "Aw, ye will, will ye?" said the leader j v
9 of the gang, advancing on t the old man t
threateningly, withuhis fists doubled for a
action. His companions also began to
- close in on the veteran. 4
"Come on, you rascals," exclaimed *
^ Carter. "It's one of 'Jeb' Stuart's troopj
ers you've got before you."
The former cavalryman raised his stout
- cane to the position of "head parry," and
- as the leader of the gang came closer (
a he swung' the cane with a swishing
s sound, and it came down with force on
e the head of the fellow, knocking him
t into the middle of the road. Then the
a veteran charged the remaining four, and
with thrusts and slashes put them to
r flight. The leader in the meantime had
f staggered to his feet with blood flowing
e from a wound on his head, and as Carter d
1 charged upon him he fled precipitately I
linivn the road. j
a Old Veteran Applauded. j *
j The several bystanders who had been t
attracted by the unequal battle applauded ^
u the old Confederate and accompanied him t
e to H street, where he entered a Columbia
8 electric car. When asked by a business j
B man to notify the police of the attack *
that had been made upon him. Carter 1
. said: - * <

Firm Announces Unusual Attraction?Features
of Clearance
Opening Next Friday Morning.
Announcement is made that the July
'clean sweep" sale at the Hecht stores
rill begin next Friday morning. The
irra states that never before have the attractions
been so great and the underricing
so decisive. Every department
,nd every line has its full share in the
lea ranee selling.
A member of the firm explained today j
hat the "clean sweep" sales are ar- |
anged not for the purpose of profit mak- i
ig. but in order to "clear out stocks prior '
o stock-taking, when every ePTort is
iiade to have the stocks at the lowest
svel. The feature which commends
hese sales to the well in'ormed shoper,
it is said, is th^t they are not timed
or the end of the season, when the need
or the goods has practically passed, but
.lways occur at the height of the seaon,
when the demand is greatest.
Inducement to Purchasers.
The managers of the He^ht stores point
ut that they will gladly open an account
irhether purchases are large or small,
nd payments can be made in such sums
nd at such dates as will be entirely con enient.
That this plan has proved atractive,
it is slated, is shown by the
act that hundreds of thousands of acounts
have been opened by the house and
he nupiber is constantly increasing.
The details of the "clean sweep" sale
irill be found in The Star tomorrow, the
toe closing at 3 o'clock tomorrow, sj
hat the force may mark down prices
nd make ready for the sale.

Railway Manager Is Hopeful!
of the Future. !
Honest Men in the Country Should |
Be Let Alone?Hampered
by Politics.
NEW* YORK."July 13.?James J. Hill
came back from Labrador yesterday opt - 8
mistic. He bad been fishing in the wilds j 1
of Canada and his vacation had done him j 1
good. It seems to have changed his point 11
of view, for when he went away he was ( ?
inclined to be pessimistic. Now he thinks |
the country "may be saved. #
"Of course 1 have not tried to ke*p its ' touch
with what has been going on. As j
a matter of fact 1 went away just to get
out of touch with business matters gen- s
erally, and 1'very well succeeded. Still s
T am willing to make the prediction (hat '
if they will only let us alone everything, (
will yet be all right. There are some t
honest, intelligent men in this country %
who want to do business the right way f
In fact, thev would much rather do busi- P
ness the right way than the wrong way, *
but they can't do it as long as they are
hampered with politics. Just let us alone.
"As to these reports of general liquidation
in many lines of trade, 1 don't
care to go into any discussion. Of course, i
a let of money has been diverted from J
the regular channels by the collection of I
corporation and ether taxes, and this has I
made itself felt. I
Good Prospect Ahead. I
"By and by this money will get back
into circulation, and then, with the big
crops, things will begin to look better.
I have just been looking over a lot ot
crop reports from sections along our
lines and I see that there have been
beneficial rains in the northwest. I don't
think we ought to worry about the reports
of damage until we find out
whether they are authentic. There is
no one who can tell whether any real
damage has been done, and no one will
bo able to tell until the crop is ready
to harvest."
Mr. Hill was asked whether the heavy
speculation in land reported from the
west to have become a menace to the
banking situation had been exaggerated.
He replied:
"I think there is no doubt of it. I
don't believe there has been any general
land speculation. On the contrary, there
has been a wholesome investment movement.
The farmers have been buying
land because they are able to do it and
because they want to hand it down to
their children."
