WEYMANN STARTS AND STOPS American Up Only Four Minutes. Competitor Rises 7,000 Feet Before Negotiating SimpIon Pass. DOMODOSSSOLA, Italy, September 23. ?To George Chavez, the Peruvian avia, tor, belongs the honor of being the first to fly across the Alps. The daring feat was accomplished tot day in an attempt to win the prize of $20,000 offered by the Italian Aviation Society of Milan for a flight from Brig, Switzerland, to Milan. Chavez, however, was unable to complete the trip, having sustained painful injuries when he alighted here. His machine was overturned. He was Duriea in tne wreckage. It is not beI lieved, however, that his injuries are seI 1'iOUH. I Aeroplane Wrecked, Aviator Hurt. I As the airman was seen slowly descendI ing. a great crowd gathered. Slowly and I gracefully he neared the surface and was I but about thirty feet above the ground I when a gust of wind caught and overI turned the monoplane. I It fell heavily, carrying the aviator beI neath it. Chavez was pinned under the I motor and painfully hurt. I lie had fainted on striking the ground I and was bleeding profusely when reI leased from the wreckage. The machine I was ruined. I The American aviator, Mr. Weymann, I also attempted the (light, leaving the I tableland at Brig at J ;1U o'clock this I afternoon. Later word was received I . here that he had descended, after being I In the air four minutes. I Weather Is Favorable. I The weather for the competition was I. excellent. The morning opened clear I ( on the surface, and the haze that had I I gathered op. . .mountain tops was I early blown away. By noon the wind I had died out. <"have* believed that the favorable op portunlty which he had awaited since I Monday morning had come, and he deI rided to make the start. He got away I at 12:29 o'clock, and rose to a height I estimated to be nearly 7,000 feet. I He passed swiftly over the mountain I lops, clearing the summit of Simplon pass at 1:40 o'clock. At that time his I monoplane was moving as steadily as a I railroad train. I After negotiating Simplon pass, Chavez followed the route over Gondo gorge, pne of the grandest and at the same ime one of the most savage of the I Alps. He reached here at 2:11 o'clock. I TWfficiiltiaa All Tbhltid But for the mishap in alighting there is it tie doubt that he would have successfully continued to the goal. The remainder of the course presents comparatively little difficulty. There is general regret that fate, which permitted him to make what has been described as the most reckless flight ever at, tempted, should have dealt less kindly with him when he had reached the zone >f easy flying and the prize was in sight. With the exception of Chavez and VVeymann, the aviator, abandoned the i competition this morning. The time limit A the contest will expire tomorrow. Chavez's most notable feat tip to today was in establishing a new altitude record. September 3 he rose to a height of JS.^71 eet. Conditions of Contest. The distance from Brig. Switzerland, to dilan is seventy-five miles. The prize vas for the aviator who should make he first flight, starting from a tableland M? feet above sea level at the head of he Rhone valley, near Brig, Switzerland. In addition to reaching a height that would bring him over the Slmplon sumnit ai\d In doing which he must suffer teverely from the cold, the aviator was equlred to guide his frail craft over wide hasms. notably the Gorge of Ysette, where a safe descent would be quite im>ossible and an accident must mean almost certain death. Aviation experts had predicted freely .hat the only alternative to a successful Sight across the Alps was the death of he aviator. Signal fires along the Napoleon road narked the way as far as Domodossola. The rest of the course was indicated by lags and buoys anchored on Lake Magpore.

ROOSEVELT IS IT His Name About the Only One Heard in New York. CANDIDATES SEEM SCARCE No One Appears to Want Nomination for Governor REPUBLICAN OUTLOOK BAD Impression Prevails That Party Is in for a Good Trouncing at November Elections. Special From a Staff Correspondent. NEW YORK, September 23.?Here it Is four days from the republican state convention and you haven't heard one word about gubernatorial candidates. One would almost think that Roosevelt is running for the nomination, since his name fills all the space in the papers and is the subject of most of the comment in conversation. Possibly at the proper time he will kindly suggest a candidate for us and we will hail him with glad acclaim. But, jesting aside, it is a fact that possible candidates for the gubernatorial nomination are very scarce. Before the Roosevelt-Sherman imbroglio broke out there was some talk of President Schurman of Cornell University for the nomination. Then young Representative Bennett of this city shied his castor into the ring. Roosevelt did drop the name of Davenport of Utlca, it is true, to help Davenport clean up Sherman in his home town, but for the past two weeks nothing has been said about candidates. Not Anxious for Job. Well, for one thing, there does not seem to be overweening desire on the part of many to undertake the job. The feeling is widespread that the republican party Is in for a licking in this state and poll*' ticians are wary about offering themselves for the sacrifice. In the end. of course, an overpowering sense of duty will induce some luckless fellow to lead the forlorn hope, but they are not crowding over each other now to get the Job. I hear a good deal of talk among republicans of the possible intention of the old guard to unload the whole shooting match on to Roosevelt, as long as defeat seems to threaten, and let him run the convention. "And then put up to him the responsibility for the walloping the democrats give us in November," they add. Men who talk that way don't know the colonel as you do down In Washington. Tou don't think for an instant that he would shoulder the responsibility. Not much. He would ptaf?-4t somewhere else in a Jiffy and emerge from the melee smiling and still on top. Has Them in a Daze. Politicians here are still dazed at the way the colonel has cleaned up the old guard organization. In these dispatches some weeks ago It was pointed out that Roosevelt was fighting practically alone, so far as organization and political lieutenancy was concerned, while the old guard had the services of the most capable, experienced and astute political wire pullers in the state, each with a certain amount 'of machinery and organization back of him. Precious lot of good It has done them. Roosevelt had back of him the Infatuated fatuousness of the rank and file of the people and the bosses have had to march to the music of their constituents. Roosevelt has been hammered and thumped and cartooned by every metropolitan newspaper of his own and the opposing party and the up-state counties have gone right along eliecting Roosevelt delegates to the convention, until now he appears to have a safe majority, even before the bapd begins to play and the shooting to commence at Saratoga. "Isn't he a wonder? Can you beat him?" the old guard politicians say. In the democratic camp there is just as much uncertainty about candidates. Gaynor is keeping them guessing, right up to the last moment apparently. In the meantime, there is renewed solicitude about his physical condition, talk of an operation for the extraction of the bullet, and probability that he will be much in the public eye and sympathy just about the time the democratic convention meets. 'S'matter With Sulzer P Your young friend. William Sulzer Is keeping up a bold front, but the best posted politician? don't think he has' a Chinaman's chance for the nomination when it comes down to brass tacks. And when they say that they invariably add encomiums of praise for him, admit that he would run well and would make a fearless and capable governor. What's the trouble about him, then? The only answer I can find is that New York city doesn't seem to take him seriously and he cannot move a peg without Tammny's aid. The outlook for the congressional ticket in New York state is very blue for the republicans. The expected democratic landslide is counted upon to sweep out several republican representatives in the middle tier of Counties and two. possibly three, in New York city. N. O. M.

BIG GUN EXPLODES Muzzle Blown Off 50-Ton i Rifled Cannon on Georgia. DURING TARGET PRACTICE Crew Miraculously Escapes Injury in Accident. PIECE IS PROBABLY RUINED Details Not Given in Beport From Admiral Schroeder?Happened on First Fire. During the target practice of the Atlantic fleet off the Virginia capes yesterday, one of the big twelve-inch, flftyton guns of the battleship Georgia burst on the first range shot. The muzzle as far back as the forward end of the jacket was blown off. The crew miraculously escaped injury. Big Gun Is Buined. The accident occurred to the left gun in the forward turret of the Georgia. The big rifle was ruined, probably beyond repair. The report of the accident reached the Navy Department this morning in a wireless dispatch from the commanderin-chief, Rear Admiral Schroeder. The Georgia was one of the battleships of the second squadron in the day target practice. 1 The vessels of the fleet had been divided into two squadrons, one of which held its day practice Wednesday. The other did its firing yesterday. The Georgia is commanded by Capt. William L. Rodgers, and is the flagship of Rear Admiral Samuel P. Comly, commander of the third division of the Atlantic fleet. No Details Are Given. No further details were given In Admiral Schroederis telegraphic report. The accident, of course, put a material _. ~ m *1 r*-- * ? ? ??** - l>ai l ui uie ucurgia s uanery out oi business, but the battleship still has three twelve-inch guns to work with and will continue target practice with them. It will not interfere with the Georgia's participation in the coming European cruise of the Atlantic fleet, for another gun, being built at the Washington navy yard, will be in readiness to replace the ruined one by November 1. The accident occurred during the continuance of what has proved to be a much handicapped battle mimicry by the Sixteen formidable defenders on the Atlantic ooast. The practice has been on abeitt ten days, but has been seriously interfered with - by stormy weather outside, ships crossing the range and other things that vexed Admiral Schroeder and his officers. The practice continued yesterday. The progress was slow owing to the rough sea, which rendered towing difficult. Two Guns to Be Replaced. Not only the gun that was blown up, but its companion gun in the forward turret will be replaced immediately. The navy keeps a record of every gun in the service, figuring that the life of a twelve-inch gun is 150 rounds. Accordingly, these twin turret pieces were to have been replaced soon, any waj*. The Georgia, instead of proceeding to her home port of Boston for the replacement work, will dock at Norfolk immediately after the target practice is concluded. The work of putting on the new guns probably will not take over fifteen days. The new guns, unlike the damaged weapon, will be hooped to the muzzle, which is designed to strengthen the batten*. The navy officials say that the accident may have occurred through the development of heat cracks or through erosion, whereby the firing sometimes results in unguis a uiwinei ui uccHSioiiaiiy nail an lncii In the lining of the bore, or might have been the result oi overvibration. ?

Robertson and Stephen Reynolds, a New York man whom he was carrying as a passenger, were thrown thirty feet or more, clear of the wreckage. Both Robertson and Reynolds were unconscious when another car, which had been following two minutes behind them, came along and they were picked up. They were carried back to the grandstand and a physician was hastily summoned. Reynolds was believed then to be suffering from internal Injuries. He was placed in an automobile and hurried to Manhattan. A hasty examination oh the spot caused the physician to fear that Robertson's injuries were serious, if not fatal. He appeared to be suffering from a bad scalp wound, a sprained and fractured arm, concussion of the brain and possible interhal injuries. Surgeons Take Hopeful View. At the Nassau Hospital, however, it appeared to the surgeons from their preliminary examination that the automobilist's injuries might not be so serious as was at first feared. It was thought by those who looked over the ground after the accident that Robertson had attempted to take the dangerous curve at too high a speed. Both victims of the accident being unconscious, there was no one to tell whether anything had gone wrong with the mechanism. The spin Robertson was taking was his first on the Yanderbiit course this year.

"BUND BOSS" DEAD Gen. Brayton Was Rhode Island's Republican Leader. ACCIDENT HAS FATAL END Diabetes Follows Fracture of Hip Sustained August 29. ADMITTED TO BAB WHEN 51 Political Strength Lay in His Ability to Control Small Towns of the State. PROVIDENCE. R. I., September 23.Gen. Charles R. Brayton. the blind leader of the Rhode Island republicans and' the Rhode Island member of the national republican committee, died here today. Gen. Brayton's death wa? due to complications resulting from an accident sus tained August 2S>. The general fell while moving about his office, and broke his hip. The fracture was not considered a serious one at the time, but as the age of the patient -was seventy; some anxiety was felt on that account. Favorable progress was reported until a day or two ago, when symptoms of diabetes were noted, and death came directly from that cause today. Attacked by Enemies. The death of Gen. Brayton removes from public life a man who for more than a generation had been the central figure of Rhode Island politics. He was generally know n as "the blipd boss," a term ccoupling an infirmity with his aknowledged political power. Often he had been bitterly attacked by political enemies, and his domination, labeled by the democratic party as "Braytonism," frequently had been a campaign issue, but both democrats and republicans, speaking of the matter today, said that the general's position as leader was as strong up to the hour of his death as it ever had been. Throughout the seventy years of his life Charles Ray Brayton was active in politics, but his prominence was not in that field alone, lie left Brown University to enlist in the civil war and served throughout the conflict. At its close he was brevetted brigadier general "for faithful and meritorious service.'* When Gen. Brayton was well advanced in the forties he decided to study law. He completed a course at the age of flftyone and was admitted to the bar. From 1874 to 1880. Gen. Brayton was postmaster of Providence. Source of His Power. Gen. Brayton's political strength ;ay in his ability to control the small towns. In the cities his power was so slight as to be really negligible. Under the laws of Rhode Island each town and city has the same representation in the state senate, the smallest town electing one senator each year, while the largest cities have no greater representation. By keeping closely in touch with conditions in the towns and villages the general was able to acquire desired influence. He had been the Rhode Island member of the republican national committee since 10O4.

ATTORNEYS ARE ADMITTED Accused Senator and Chicago Tri bune to Have Counsel. AWAIT A FULL COMMITTEE Hearings Will Not Begin Until Senators Bulkeley and Frazier Arrive?Want Records. CHICAGO, September 2.1.?The senatorial subcommittee on privileges and elections, which convened here to investigate the alleged fraud and corruption in the election of Senator William Lorimer, decided today to proceed at this time with the taking of testimony, and not to postpone action until after the November elections, as urged by \Mr. Lorimer's attorney, El bridge Hanecy, at the first open session of the committee yesterday. At the opening of today s session Chairman Burrows also announced that the committee would permit Attorney Alfred S. Austrian, representing the Chicago Tribune, and former Judge Elbridge Hanecy, representing Senator Lorimer, to appear in the hearing. Hold Informal Conference. This finding was arrived at in an informal conference of the senators last night, and today the committee members were unwilling to discuss: any phase of the hearing. Attorney Hanecy presented his formal motion to a continuance of the hearing until after the November elections. The reasons advanced were in substance similar to the argument made by him yesterday when he declared that Senator Lorimtr would be handicapped through a disinclination of legislators now under Indictment to testity before the committee. The Tribune's list of witnesses was submitted and the committee began consideration of methods of procedure. The committee's decision overruling Senator Lorimer's plea for delay was announced by Senator Paynter of Kentucky, who said: "The committee has given due consideration to the presentation made for a continuance of this hearing until after the November elections, and has not found the reasons contained therein of sufficient weight, to warrant the delay. The petition is denied." Await Full Committee. No reference was made to the definite tima wh?n th? hMrlnr would bpirin but after submission of tbe names of the witnesses by the newspaper a short conference resulted in the announcement that the session would adjourn as a public meeting- until Monday morning, to-permit Senators Bullteley of Connecticut and Frailer of Tennessee, other members of the investigating subcommittee, to be present. ! The committee then went into executive session, with Attorne>ej Austrian and Hanecy to determine upon the rules of practice that would obtain at the hearing. The committee has decided, it was announced, to ask for the official record of the Illinois legislature containing the balloting during the period preceding and up to and including the election of Lorimer.

ADMITS HE WAS CARELESS % Prisoner on Train Got Away From Him in Baltimore. ^ ON JOURNEY FROM NEW YORK Accused Man Had Gained Confidence of Olficer and He Was Lax as a Result. Policeman Raymond O. Klelndienst. who has been detailed for duty at police headquarters as a detective for the last sixteen months, was relieved of the detail this morning and returned to street duty. He was on duty in the tirst precinct when he was ordered to headquarters, but the order relieving him sends him to the fourth precinct in South Washington. * This change was brought about because the |K)liceman had permitted Marcus Golden, a prisoner he was bringing here from New York, to escape. The transfer of the ofticer does not mean. Police Chief Richard Sylvester has an , nounceo, mat Iiis place at headquarters Is to be tilled by the transfer of an officer from one of the precincts. As soon as it was learned that KleinUieust had been sent to a precinct, friends of some of the precinct detectives got busy foi the latter. They were disappointed, how ever, when they learned that Kleindienst was not a detective sergeant, but that he was merely a probationary man at headquarters and that his place is not to be filled for the present. Not to Fill Place. "It is not my intention at this time to detail another man to the pla<-r at headquarters," said Maj. Sylvester. "Kleindienst was only there on probation, and was returned to a precinct because' he permitted the escape of the prisoner." Kleindienst frankly admitted to Maj. Sylvester and Inspector Boardnian that the escape of the prisoner was due to his failure to keep watch over him. He explained that the conduct of the prisoner had been such that he felt that Golden would make no effort to escape, and when he left his charge for only a few seconds he had not the slightest idea that an effort to get away would be made. Kleindienst will remain on duty at the deteotive office while efforts are being made to recapturo Golden. , .... Golden, whose wife and seven children i j. _ a. moi Haiti. rCBlVie ILL AW! ?MOl r aj CIIC Oit Wi| v*iv?more, took French leave of Detective KJeindtenst last night while being brought here from^tow Torlc to Mwer a charge of having stolen a .watch from the store of M. B. Korman, 706 H street northeast, where he had been employed. Golden left the train just after it had pulled out of Mount Royal station, in Baltimore, escaping while the detective was temporarily absent from his seat. Search Is Unavailing:. Detective Kleindienst left the train at Camden station, in the Monumental city, and started a search for the fugitive. He failed to find any trace of Golden at the home of the latter or elsewhere, and about 3 o'clock this morning he returned to this city. Upon hearing of the escape Sergt. Carter, acting night chief of detectives. sent messages to the police of other cities, asking for assistance in the search that ia being made for the fugitive. The escape of the prisoner, it is believed. was made possible by the fact that Golden had gained the confidence of the detective. After leaving New York the prisoner, who had expressed a desire to return and effect a settlement of the charge, talked of his family, and told how sorry he was that he had become Involved In the trouble. When the train reached Philadelphia the detective took the prisoner from the Pullman to the dining car and saw that he was given a good dinner. Golden seemed to fully appreciate his thoughtfulness. "You have certainly been good to me," said the prisoner to the detective, "and I hope some day I will be able to repay you for your kindnessi" Kliendienst had not the slightest idea that Golden contemplated making an effort to escape, and it is thought the idea was not suggested to the prisoner until the detective walked to the end of the car and left him alone. The train warn moving slowly away from the station, and it was an easy matter for Golden to leave it without running any chance of sustaining serious injury. Vanished From Train. I About the time Kleindienst was out : of sight, the detective was afterward told by a passenger. Golden went to the rear of the observation car and vanished. By the time the detective learned of the disappearance of Golden the train was making such fast time it was not safa for him to leave It. Just before Camden station was reached, however, the detective alighted and watched the passengers leave the train. Golden was not among them. The Baltimore police were asked by the detective for assistance. Search was made throughout Baltimore and the home of the fugitive visited, but Golden was net found. SLAYS WIFE AS SHE SLEEPS.

A high wind of thirty miles an hour prevented any long flights. As It was, however. Prof. Totten and his assistant made several glides, enough to assure them that the machine would work. The feature of the glider is that it ie built with wings that will tilt at varying angles and thus assume lateral balance. The machine was used till it t^ad to ho lqid up for repairs. ^
