Only this morning Mr. Wright bad bet i) asked what the result would he if one of his prop 'Hers broke while the machine was in flight. "The other propeller would tend to turn the machine around," In said.] "but I would stoji the motor and glide to earth." The lu lief was expressed by a ser? geant of the signal corps that the! aeroplane had been tampered with' previous to its flight, but this Is im- J probable, because the machine ha; been closely guarded while at the fort. It was housed in a specially constructed shed, and a guard kept str?ng -ra away both day and night. The suggestion of foul play is dis? credited by all those acquainteu wiin the methods of safeguaruing the ma chine. Charles White, cf White and Mld dl ton, Baltimore, Md., a mechanical expert, gave this description of the accident to Messrs. Wright and Beif rldge: "I witnessed the flying or the aero p'ane and it was performing beauti? fully for six or seven minutes, when suddenly one of the proiiellors brOtte near the end. This caused the ma? chine to become so thoroughly out of balance through centrifugal force as to make it unmanageable, ami It made a dart to the ground while still und'r operation of the right propel, lor, causing It to strike tae"groond with a great deal more force than it would have done by gravity. I do not feel that this is any serious de? fect Iii the machine, hut m rely want of better construction In the proiiellors. Therefore I do no; feel that the machine should be condemn? ed beyond this point. I should Imag? ine that when the machine made th" dart for the ground it fell at the rate of twenty mil * an hour. I saw th-? piece that flew from the propeller fall to the earth. Before the flight of the machine I examined it thorough? ly and saw nothing to b- criticised nitside of the wood construction or the propellers " Lieutenant Selfridge a Californian. RAX FRANCISCO.
