NEW YORK, October 0.?An attempt v
to stop flying in Nassau county yester- 1
day broke up the peace of the Sabbath 1
as no flying meet has ever done. A free *
flglit to prevent the arrest of Miss Ma- 1
mue -Moisam. pursuit ana escape t>y au- v
tomobile, with speed laws forgotten, and
the excitation of the whole countryside
were perhaps the principal features of
what looked like a conspiracy to make f
the law ridiculous.
From some corner of his mind Sheriff
De Mott dug up the notion that Justice
Garretson's order, vacating the injunction
against interfering with "Tim Wood- i
ruff's aviation tournament Sunday, con- |
stituted in itself an injunction against i
all flight on that day of the week. He 1
sent twenty-two deputies to the Nassau J
boulevard aerodrome to enforce his in- ,
terpretation of the law, stationing one j
before every third hangar and at every
entrance gate. *
Warned Not to Fly. J
Some ."?00 persons, attracted by the l
prospect of seeing Earle L?. Ovington, *
the aerial mail carrier, start on his postal
flight to the Pacific coast, strolled .
on to the grounds in the course of the t
afternoon. No attempt to charge ad- t
mission was made. The deputy sheriffs
at the gates had nothing to do, therefore,
but those before the hangars warned
the aviators that any attempt to fly
would lead to arrest. <
Ovington protested that as a licensed
mail carrier he was under the protection
of the federal government and could fly
mil auu n iiti r lie pitfUKFU, WO long aw
no charge to see him was made. De t
Mott's men told him the federal govern- .
ment didn't pay their wages; that they
had their orders and that if he flew he 1
would be "pinched." The bluff worked, c
too; at least until 5 o'clock. 1
Miss Moisant Eludes Deputies.
In the meantime Miss Matilde Moisant, i
who wanted to fly over to her brother's >
field at Mlneola, was ruminating over her t
constitutional rights. With the help of i
her brother, Alfred Moisant, she came to 0
the conclusion, about 4 o'clock, that she J
had a perfect right to travel between two ,
points as she saw fit. Her mechanics <
were therefore ordered to wheel her mon- ]
oplane out onto the field. The deputies '
remonstrated and threatened, but she reminded
them they must wait until she 1
left the ground before acting. They '
watched her climb into her seat, start '
the motor, run along the ground and 1
As she circled the aerodrome and made 1
as if to alight, the officers of the law (
ran out to arrest her. but just as she '
seemed about to flutter into their grasp
she tilted her planes and soared aloft
again, waving them* a fond farewell.
Deputy Sheriffs J. J. Campbell, D. Drake
and John Delaney immediately jumped |
into the sheriff's automobile and sent it
ahead at full speed for Mlneola.
Flight to Mineola.
.Miss .Moisant outdistanced them in the
air. but once above the Mineola field she
circled about to give her brother a
chance to arrange the scene of conflict.
When he had placed Joe Stevenson's
car in readiness for her at the center of
the aerodome she descended, hopped out
of her monoplane and into the automobile.
Another crowd of 500 saw the sheriffs
give chase, the pursuit zigzagging about
the inclosure like a game of tag.
The sheriffs' car was the better of the
two, and in a short time overhauled the
other. An attempt to pull the young
woman out of her car was made, where
upon Philip VVillcox, her brother's field
manager, and Rene Porsch, her cliau.'-,
feur, stood the deputy sheriffs off, and
Kene had his "knob" tapped.
Decides to Surrender,
In the course of the battle Vves de

drove up In his racer. Mies Moisant
watched her opportunity, jumped across
into the other car beside her sister aviatrice.
and again the pursuit was on.
Mr. de Villers made a dash for the
highway. His car, being fast, soon left
the deputy sheriffs far behind, and it
seemed as if the incident was about to
close. But Miss Moisant decided that
she would do well to surrender, since she
had committed no crime. So the car
was turned about and she entered the
aviation field once more and drove up
to* the hangars to give herself up.
Deputies Charged With Trespass.
But her brother, white with anger,
confronted the deputies as they stepped
up to make the arrest, and asked them
for their warrant. They had none. He
ordered them off his Held, saying they
had no right trespassing on private prop
?rty without a warrant. The crowd. P
freatly excited, surged about, with un- 1
:omplimentary suggestions to the law of- 5
leers, and when the latter refused to de- ^
>art the fight started. The deputies 1
Irew their clubs and used them on the
learest hea?ls, as Miss Moisant's huskier j
sympathizers rushed them toward the 1 p
'ntrance. ! ?
The fair flier slipped away without ,
vaiting for the outcome, reached the .
langar of the Aeronautical Society and !
lurried away in her brother's tar for j
It was about this time that Ovlngton |
lecided he would fly to Governors Is- Q
and, to be in readiness for liis start to I
he Pacific today. Accordingly, he had
lis monoplane wheeled out of the hangar j
tnd tuned up, telling the deputies that j p
io flight was intended and putting a ; ~
>ackage of letters in his pocket to sane- j
ttfy the venture. When he left the 1
{round, of course, the deputies could not '
'ol'.ow him.
Ovington's Flight* Spoiled. ^
One result of their vigilance, how- j
iver, had been to prevent him from j q

Sheriff De Mott's deputies appeared i

Contrasts in the Tides Caused by the *
Variable Winds. ?!
The varying- winds of the past two or ti
hree days have caused contrasts in the P<
ides on the Potomac, from very low %
o very high, and river men say they p1
an make no calculation twenty-four Dlours
in advance as to the run of water L
lepths in the shoal creeks into which r<
hey have to trade. In the middle of
ast week a heavy northwest wind pre- u
ailed for a couple of days, and this y
aused exceptionally low tides, so that ei
t was almost impossible for even light- n
iraft vessels to get into many of the
reeks tributary to the Potomac. Fri- o:
lay night the wind shifted to the east- n
ward, and Saturday and yesterday ex;eptionally
high tides came, and the b
water in the creeks was two feet above v
ts normal level. tl
Yesterday afternoon at high tide the
water was within a fejv inches of the
lower wharves in the harbor, and the o
jea wall about Potomac Park was al- n
most out of sight. This may be fol- s
lowed by another northwester, which a
cvill make the tides range three or four
feet below the high water level of yes- a
Lerday afternoon. is

the persistent reports

ie general outlook for athletics at the

nd, barring the unforeseen, the instituon
will be represented by capable teams
j all departments.
Foot ball, which generally is looked
pon as paramount among college pasmes,
is under way, and eacli afternoon
squad of over half a hundred candiates
for the varsity eleven are busily
ngaged on Lambeth Field. Prospects
ir a representative eleven are particuirlv
bright, especially in view of the relarkable
victory over William and Mary,
eretofore a formidable opponent, in tlie
?eond game of the season. The visitors
ere vanquished, outplayed at every snip,
with a tinal score of Si to O, probbly
a record for southern collegiate foot

>ot ball picture Virginia beaten before
le start. Circumstances of a similar
ature have been in evidence on several
L-casions in the past ten years, during
hich time the Washington boys have
jored but a single victory. Why then,
is asked, should this disgruntled lot of
opesters give vent to their feelings now?
: is to wait!
Fall base ball practice, which has been
-ogressing for the past two weeks under
ie direction of a number of last year's
len and Harry Spratt, a university law
udent, who played with the Boston Naonal
I-eague club last summer, has reealed
several interesting facts.
In the first place, the 1912 nine will
ave an unusually strong nucleus furished
by those who made a brilliant
?cord for the school last spring, tile,
ouglass, Finlay, Neff, Rixey and Anerson,
all "V" men, are now registered
j college, "while'T. C. Carter, wh6 will
iptain the team, is expected to return
fter Christmas. Besides these, Jenkins,
Iclntyre, Taylor, Holcombe, Hewitt and-oodhue,
all of last year's squad, not to
peak of a raft- of new material, will be
vailable. Hume, captain of last year's
ine; Drivver and Blakeney are the only
bsentees, and with the material already
n hand the coaches feel confident that
tiey will be able to find capable subtitutes
for this likely trio.
The schedule this year will be one of
ie most pretentious ever attempted, and
esidcs the usual quota of games with
ale, Pennsylvania, Princeton, George>wn
and Carolina, will probably include
lose with Columbia and Amherst. Um
ire mgier 01 rsational league fame,
ho coached the team last season, Is
xpected back early this week, and will
ssume the reins immediately.
Track, basket ball, tennis, golf and gymastic
teams are also in course of forlation,
and progress in each to date
ugurs well for future success. Track
ork has always held a prominent place
n the athletic calendar of the univerity,
and this year will not be an excepon.
The great majority of last year's
oint winners have been lost through
raduation, but with a strong nucleus
nd a host of new talent picked up from
rep schools of prominent stations all
ver the country, the veteran "Pop"
annigan should be able to develop a
jpresentative squad.
Talk of a resumption of crew .work that
as abandoned by the authorities some
ears back has stirred up considerable
rithusiasni among the student body, but
othing of a definite nature is expected to
evelop in the near future. The digging
f a lake on the site proposed would
ecessitate years of labor. At the same
me the idea has been discussed freely
y university authorities and may deelop
to considerable proportions before
tie close of another term.
"College Topics," the real news medium
f the university, bids fair to enjoy a
lost successful season under the editorhip
of Roy C. Moyston and the mangership
of R. Granville Curry.
The fourth number has been issued to
record-breaking list of subscribers and
* brimful of interesting matter eoncernlg
all college activities. If the success
ttained thus far can be taken as a erierion
of what may be expected in the
uture, Old Virginia will be in a position

The fact that debating, religious work,
raternal and general social life are put
n a par with athletics, which in many
istitutions is paramount among all acIvities,
sives the contribution a charcter
of general interest. Each subject
i treated thoroughly and space is always
matter of secondary consideration.
The board of editors has promised new
eatures with each issue.

of the institution. Twelve of the members
of last year's club have returned,
and the incoming class has furnished a
wealth of promising material. At the

win a c-ain act as director, was highly
elated over the volume and quality of
tone furnished by a chorus made up for
the greater part of untrained voices, and
predicted great things for the future. The
officers of the club are: President. A. F.

K. T. Wenger.
Others connected with the organization
are: W. G. Maupin, business manager;

at this early date arranging details for
the book that they promise will eclipse
all previous attempts along similar lines.
R. B. Albertson has been chosen editor in

Those in charge have already started a
canvass for literary and art material, and
the actual work of compilation will be
begin in the near future.
The total enrollment at the university
up to the time of the last count, early
last week, was 772. an increase of ninetyfour
men over that of this time last year.
Those in power have expressed themselves
as confident that the count will
reach the 900 mark before the close of the
second term. In his speech at convocation
exercises, held in Cabell Hall last
Saturday. President Alderman emphasized
the fact that the faculty, aided by
the earnest co-operation of the student
body, hopes to eventually increase the enrollment
to 1,000.
Lighter Will Be Taken Tip the Potomac
to Tuscarora.
A new lighter which has been building
on a scow at the wharf of L. A. Clar*e
& Son. at the foot of 10th street southwest,
for the past ten days, will be completed
and launched this afternoon, and
later in the month will be taken up the
canal to a point on the Potomac, near
Tuscarora. Md., where it will be used as
a ferry across the Potomac. The lighter
is fifty feet long by fourteen feet beam
and is built extra strong and of light
draft in order to carry heavy loads with
ease. Clarke & Son of this city have
large timber tracts on the Virginia side
of the river, and wishing to get the timber
to market it was found necessary to
ferry it across the Potomac to the shipping
