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.

The Sale Yesterday of the Last Ret 1
There is no more Rourke estate now.
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
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-
