Balloons in War. The InternationaJ Peace conference at Tup Haicue five years ago placed a ! vhibii inn on the use )t )' ojet tiles v. iiu ii might be dropped from balloons: of liomos which upon explosion uould i.ifupe suffocating gases, and of x l !'i;ive bullets. The prohibt'on r-gair:st l!it use of explosives from batiooii was limited to si duration of five years. :;'id tilts limit expired a week ago July 'nneeqiiently, th"re is now much spec ulation -is to what action, if any, ltur fia and J.tpan will take to utilize bal loons in the present war. The situa tion of Port Arthur offers a. fine op poitunity for Japan to end the siege by a new and horiible method, pro vided tho Japanese have provided themselves with the necessary equip ment. The jace conference placed no time l.jnil on the prohibition of ga-eous bombs ;ind explosive bulle:, and why the civilized ro'eis of the earth repre sented at The Hague comprising more than twenty nations thought it unnec-ss-ary to prohibit balloon' warfare be .!,. 1 July 9, 1904, has never been sat lsfat tot ily explained. The prohibition. Mas adopted unanimously, and there appears to have been no division on the uestion of time limitation. The Unit ed States and Great Britain opposed the rule against the use of the objec tionable bombs, but assented to the exclusion of balloons and explosive bul lets. Some of the military possibilities of the balloon were promptly perceived immediately after It was invented. The first notable ascent by the Mor.'.golfler brothers occurred in ITsC. Within ten years thereafter a regular school of aerostation was established at Meudon, under the auspices of the army, and in 17H4 the head of it, Colonel Countelli, took up with him to a height of over a mile a general and adjutant to ob-i-erve the position and strength of a hostile force. This incident occurred on the eve of the battle cf Freurus, and the reconnoissance gave the French a distinct advantage over the Austriajis. Telegraphy had not then ome into use. Hence this information which was secured was transmitted to t!ie commander only alter the descent i f the balloon. Nevertheless, it contiib-ut-d directly to the decisive victory whieh followed. On that, occasion thf 1 airship was prevented from going astray by means of a roie and wind lass an exedient which has been gen erally adopted ever since when balloons have been employed for observation. At Sat.olago in 1S9S there was, In ad dition to the rope, a telegraph wire, by means of which tho signal ofllcer aloft could ommunnk-ate directly ami in stantaneously with headquarters. i:.illi ons hae Le n used :n alrro.-t ev ery great war for a century. The first Nap leon took a number of them into Egypt in order to Impress the Arabs with Ihe superiority of Kuropean ideas, lis the sieg.-- of Paris, 1S70-'71, the at tempt was made to establish postal communication by means of airr.hijs Iwtween the beleaguered city and the national Authorities outside, but this (ill not wo:k so satisfactorily as the artier pigeon service. After all. the principal military use of the balloc hitherto has: been reconnoissance, and one officer afier another has testifi?d to the help thus received. Iord Wolse ley has as.-crted that he finished his campaign in the Soudan far more quickly than would otherwise have been possible because of such aid. An observer in a captive balloon is rxjxised to great danger from the ene my's guns. Even Coutelle, over a cen tury ago, was threatened by a cannon shot, and was obliged to let out more rope to insure safety Today the Mau ser and other tiller carried by infantry soldiers have a range of three miles or mote. At Santiago showers of well di rected bullet flew around the tig officers who were on duty and wliosa elevation was at no time over 1,500 feet. There were narrow escapes from in ranl! dea-th on that account to say nothing of injury from premature de scent had the balloon been bndly punc tured. Such risks have furnished an Impor tant incentive for experiments with air ships which could be kept moving by suitable machinery. In the United States the war department has lent en couragement 'to Professor Langley for that reason, and several Kuropean powers have pursued similar policies for at least twenty years. The pro totype of the Santos-Dumont machine was? developed by two French army of ficers, Renard and Krcbs. They used electric power Instead of gasoline en gines to d'rive their screws, but they adopted the cigar shaped gas bag. in order to lessen the resistance encoun tered from, the atmosphere while Hying horizontally. They are said to be the first aeronauts who described a com plete circle while In the air aloft, thus demonstrating the feasibility of steer ing and propelling craft of this kind. No speeds have yet been developed which, exceed fifteen or sixteen miles in hour, and no voyaire has yet ex tended over an hour and three-quar ters. Little further Improvement In these direction Is needed, though, to put in the hands of military men an agent of largely increased power. Not only will-a good flying machine, prop erly managed, be able to keep out of the way of an enemy while engaged in reconnoissance, but it should be able to. assume the aggressive and work fearrui navoo. The kind of service which now b?- comes permissible has xkH hitherto been attempted, for a variety-of rea sons. The argument made at The Hague five years ago has Interfered temporarily. Before that prohibition took effect there had been no import ant war for a considerable period. Be sides, the airship had not reached its presenT state of development. Howev er, both ini Europe and America a num ber of wide-awake men have consid ered pltins for making trouble for an enemy in new ways. One scheme Is to oierate In the air a mechanism akin to the Whitehead torpedo. The latter propels and steers itself after being launched irt the water. The aerial tor pedo, if designed for horizontal flight, could be liberated from a captive bal loon or an elevated station cn land, or from a self-propelled airship of the Santos-Dumont type. It has also been proposed to drop torpedoes from craft of the latter kind, a convenient posi tion first being reached above an army or a town, or even over a ship at sea. The possibility of the adoption of this kind of warfare by either Russia or Japan during the present struggle de pends upon a number of things. One Is the duration of the contest itself. Another is the degree of preparation for it whic-h the combatants may have made lrt secret. The generally back ward state of the Russian provision for the war and the limited amount of at tention hitherto given to aerial navi gation by the czar's army officers dis courage 't;he expectations that they have anything "up their sleeve" which cant be produced on short notice. On the other hand, it shou'.d not be for gotten that the French, who have al ways been conspicuously devoted to aeronautic ventures, are friendly to Russia, and might co-operate wLh her, had they anything new to offer. Again, Japan, though wonderfully alert to modern methods of fighting, has giv en fto Indications of a purpose to avail herself of the privilege now open to her. Perhap3 the world niiy be obliged to wait until the next great war Is fought . before it witnesses a trial of the areial toi pedo. Nevertheless, free dom to use the latter will doubtless en tourage inventors to present a number of fresh ideas to the military authori ties of the leading powers. That nona cf these propositions may prove ac ceptable and i evolutionary cannot safely be affirmed. Hill On the Rear Seat. "You can say that I have a back seat on the band wagon," quoth, the Hon. David B. Hi'.l the other day af ter the Murphy-Parker conference in New York at which the Tammany boss was the "lion of the occasion." The reports say that Murphy was sur rounded by a group of Interested poli ticians who listened for every word of wisdom that dropped from his lips while the Hon. David Bennett occupied a corner of the piazza alone. And the shrewd and sharp David does not ap pear to have been of much importance, so far as the public Is concerned, since the convention. He has been the sub ject of a storm of criticism because he did not force a gold standard plank into the platform. And yet Parker cannot afford to throw Hill overboard. It would be ridiculous to think that he would do so. Hill probably realizes that he has been made the target for the attacks on the Parker crowd and hence has decided to stay in the rear for awhile. But should Parker happen to be chos en to the White house. Hill would un doubtedly be his right hand adviser. Hill discovered Parker. He made of him what he is. He put him upon the court of appeals bench. Hill managed the Parker campaign throughout the country which resulted in the over- throw of Bryan's forces. lie did It with a candidate practically unknown througout the : country. - If Pa.rker i chosen, X I ill will be tooting the fi:s cornet in the band wagon. He is sub merged for 'the time being, for politics effect. He can afford to let Tammany occupy tha stage. It would be diffe ent with Parker in the White house. Aged Statesmen.

The dissipation of it was completed yesterday by the sale by the adminis trator of the remaining real estate con sisting of a ranch south of the capltpl grounds, the property on North Center street occupied by Davidson's black smith shop and a three fourth's in terest in a cattle ranch In , Yavapai county. The ranch, consisting of forty acres, was sold for S4.250 to C. T. Hirst and the city property was sold to K. M. Mognette for $2,800. More - money was realized from the sale than the ad ministrator, O. H. Christy, expected. It was also shown that the assessment of property for purposes of taxation In this county is not too high. Tha ranch had been assessed at $2,000 and the black smith shop property at th same sum . (The Yavapai property, which was of uncertain value, was sold to William J. Roarke, the owner of the other one fourth interest, for $100. The estate of James Roarke has been in the probale coui t and also in the district court for the last seven year':. A considerable part of the propeity which was originally valued at $50, 000, has been spent In litigation pr cipitated by the heirs. The first Important litigation was an attempt to introduce a will, th" c hief beneficniry of which was William J. Roarke, a nephew of James Roarko, who had been brought from Ireland and for three years previous to the death of Roarke had been employed by him and had been given a certain interest in his cattle business. It wa shown that the will was a clever for' gery perpetrated by a drunken Irish man, who was well acquainted wiib Roarke and had learned many of his expressions. He had also copied his chirography so that when the win was first presented even the court wa deceived and was inclined to believf that it was genuine. It failed, how ever, not so much on account of an defects discovered in the document a? on account of the manner of the mai on the stand who said that Roarke had dictated it. He and the witness to It practically admitted the fraudu lent character of it. Neither of them were arrested, both leaving the country while the authorities were thinking about taking them into custody. The first administratorship wa. vested in a niece of Roarke, who as a result of litigation begun by other heirs was removed and O. II. Christy was appointed. There were sever j suits after that, the last one being be- wf Pi&7 li'The letters of Miss ture is printed above, and Miss Claussen, prove beyond question that thousands of cases of inflammation of the ovaries and womb are annually cured by the use of Lydia E, Pinkham's Vegetable Compound "Deati Mrs. Pivkiiam : Gradual loss of strength and nerve force told me something was radically wrong with me.
