Moorman of the Central District, since the
attempt to steal the money, hai scanned
cIoscI the faces of all those who ame
near the trust company's building ct
Fourth and Olive streets. Thursday he
saw Burton standing on the corner opposite
the financial institution's structure. The
Panama hat. worn by the detective, who
had been employed by the trust company to
look out for the return of the would-be
thief, seemed to the policeman sufficient
evidence on which to make an arrest. Ap
proaching Burton carefully, Moorman said:

Four Fan Propellers.
The distinctive feature of Mr. Benbow's
machine are the four Immense fan propel
lers, with automatically folding b.adm. con
structed cf hollow attel tubing and silk.
By an ingenious and tlmple cam-wheel ar
rangement, operated by levers from the
-ar of the ship, tnese folding blades can
be set so as to open and close at any given
jiclnt In the r circuit without l:ening the
Dd of their revolution.
The resistance of the propellers to the
atmosphere can thus oe brought to bar tn
the downward s.roke of the propeller it the
xeronaut wishes to rise in the air or vice
-cisa if he wishes to s.nk gently to the
earth or ut any angle necessary to produce
uu oblique line of flight on either an ascend
ing or descending plane.
Mr. Benbow claims that this arrangement
will do away with the necessity of carrying
ballast and that he can descend to the
earth as gently as a bird does from Its

WILL NAME JUDGES
Iteimhlican Contests Will Disturb
Harmony of the Pro
Indications point to almost as Interesting
j a time In the Republican Judicial Conven
tion, wmen will meee in jopun next lues
dsy. ss that in the Jefferson City Conven
tion, June 24. Evidences of "harmony" are
nliout as plentiful as tbev were during the
tumultuous proceedings of the tate Nom
It I probable that the contests which
were decided In Jefferson City between the
St. 1-ouIk Republican Club crowd and the
Kerens-Zlegenhe'.n crowd will be gone over
again unless the convention itself takes
action. It Is Mild that the St. Louis Re
publican Club i willing to abide by the de
cision of the Credentials Committee in the
Jefferron City Convention, but that the
Kerens crowd will make another try fr
recognition in those wards where delega
tions v ere unseated two weeks ago.
The temporarj roll of tbe convention
which has been printed uses the report of
the Jefferson City Credentials Committee
us a basis. The Kerens faction does- not
intend to accept any such ruling, and will
take full delegations down from the
Fourth. Seventh and Tenth wards, whose
delegations were unseated in Jefferson
Gossip concerning probable nomination
Is confined to n few probabilities. Henry
Lamm of Sedalla may be one of the nom
inees. Edward Hlgbee of Lancaster, a
friend of Colonel F. W. Blees of .Macon,
may be another unless Kansas City Is given
recognition by the nomination of James W.
Moore or San ford B. Ladd. both of whom
hav been mentioned.
Moses Whybark of Marble Hill Is another
probability, though he will be compelled t
flsht N. A. Mozdy t.f Bloomlleld for the
honor. These two men have been carrying
on an energetic enmpaign in Southeast Mis
souri for Instructions. Whybark Is credited
with being a Kerens man. and Mozely Is
aligned with tho Aklns forces. Whybark
voted for the certificates of Indebtedness
while In the Leglilature. and h! opponaat
are using this agatmt him. He Is on ef
