Washington, Sept. IT. Orville Wright and Lieutenant Selfridge of the signal corps, were bodly injured, th hitter fatally, during a flight or Mr. Wright's aeroplane at Fort Myer this afternoon. The blade of one of the propellers 1 broke on the fourth trip around the field and the machine over turned, eighty-five feet in the air. landing on both men. Mr." Wright's firm and hi: are probably broken. Lieutenant Selfridge was injured about the head. The two men were re moved to Fort Myer hospital. The machine is p. wreck. The accident was due to the. snap ping off of the blade of the left pro peller. Mr. Wright hal substituted a new set of propellers this morning and was trying them out for the first time. The right propeller continued to oper ate and caused the aeroplane to turn on its side, throwing out the two men. Wright's injuries, it is announced, at Fort Myer hospital, consists of a fracture of the leg between the knee and foot, and a slight cut over the left eye. He is conscious and after the surgical examination he dictated a message to his family in Dayton, Ohio, assuring them that he was all right. The aeroplane was performing beau tifully for six or seven minutes when suddenly cue of the propellers broke near the ep.d. This caused the ma chine to become so thoroughly out of balance, through centrifugal force, as to make it unmanagable and it made a dart to the ground while still under the operation of the right propeller, causing it to strike the ground with a great deal more force than it would have done by gravity. It fell at the rate i,f twenty miles an hour. Wright and Selfridge were not thrown out.

Wright lapsed into a state of semi consciousness by the time he reached the hospital and Lieutenant Selfridge did not regain consciousness at all. He was suffering from a fracture at the base of the skull and was in a critical condition. After a hurried surgical ex amination It was announced that Wright was not dangerously injured". He is suffering from a fracture of his left thigh and several ribs on the right side are fractured. T-toth men received deep cuts about the head. Wright re mained conscious at the hospital and dictated a cablegram to his brother at Lemans, France, and requested that the same be sent to his sister and 'father at Dayton, Ohio, assuring them he was all right. Two thousand people were at the aeroplantic test grounds at Fort Myer this afternoon. Mr. Wright announced several days ago that he would take Lieutenant Selfridge, who is secretary of the aerial experiment association ;und an aeroplanist himself, in his next flight. The officer was delighted to have an opportunity to fly in the aer oplane. He was to leave on Saturday for St. Joseph, Missouri, where he was to assist Lieutenant Foulers in oper ating the Baldwin airship at the com- ! ing army maneuvers. Lieutenant Self ridge weighed about 173 pounds, mak ing the weight greater than the ma chine had ever carried before. After gliding over the ground on its runners for thirty feet the machine rose gradually and had gained a height of forty feet when it passed over the starting apparatus for the first time.

While the machine, was turning at the southern end of the field several thousand feet from the spectators some one shmled: "What is that? Something feU?" Immediately all eyes were on the aeroplane and it was seen to turn over on its left side, and, pausing a mo ment, made a complete turn and then came swooping to the earth in a cloud of dust. No effort on the part of the aviator could possibly have averted the accident. Planes and rudders were absolutely incapable of righting the machine when it had turned in that manner. Soldiers and officers ran across the field. It was fully a minute before any one reached the tangled mass. Mount ed soldiers formed a cordon around tTie wreckage while others frenzledly en deavored to lift the heavy mass of ma chinery and wood frame that pinned Wright and Selfridge to the ground. A piece of the wooden frame work was broken off and half a dozen men endeavored to free the injured men. As soon as they could be extricated they were taken to one side and phy sicians from the crowd of spectators went to their aid. As soon as possible Mr. Wright and Lieutenant Selfridge were laid on stretchers and carried to the hospital. Lieutenant Selfridge was taken to the operating Kpom and parts of the broken skull over the left eye, which was causing convulsions, were remov ed. At ten minutes after 8 o'clock Lieu tenant Selfridge died. His death was due to a compound fracture at the base of the skull. He was expecting his mother who lives In San Francisco to arrive In Washington this month. He is a nephew of Admiral Selfridge and has a brother who is an officer in the navy. EXPERIMENTS WILL GO ON. Dayton. Sept. 17. When asked if the accident would deter either Or ville or his brother, now in France, from further tests, Lorin Wright, re plied: "Decidedly no. My brother will pursue those tests until the machines are as near perfect as it is possible to make them if they are not both killed in the meantime. THE FRENCH EXPERIMENT. Lemans, Sept. 17. Wilbur Wright made another fine flight today remain ing in the air twenty-two minutes and forty-seven seconds. He traveled a distance of about twenty miles at an average height of sixty feet, only des cending on account of darkness.

The state ment published in the United States that there had been 3.000 cholera deaths here in August finds its ori gin in a local story started by Chi nese interested in getting cash from their credulous countrymen.

One of these demons cursed the people of the city for their laxity in observing "ghost sacrifices" during the seventh moon, saying that in punishment, death would le sent to the people of Amoy and their bodies would rot unburied in the streets. The next day there were eighty-seven deaths In the city, and while this ! was only a slight increase from tLui- normal, it threw tne people into a state of alarm. The first case of cholera in Amoy was reported August Z. For thirty four days from August 1 to Septem ber 16 inclusive, but excluding Au gust L'9, HO and 31 and September 1, j there were 1381 deaths from all causes in Amoy. LESS SERIOUS IN MANILA.

In a cablegram relative to the cholera situation in the islands the governor says today: "I have just returned from a visit to forty muni cipalities in Bulcan, Pampanga, Pan gasinin, Lauyon and Llicos provinces. Cholera has almost disappeared from these provinces, which were threat ened with a general epidemic a month ago. There has been a re crudescence of cholera in Manila which reached twenty cases a day on September 12. "This is due to reinfection from the provinces and concealment by the native population. The great ma jority of these attacked by cholera were poor people or those living un der adverse and unfavorable condi tions. .Rigid measures are being tak en by the board of health and there is a wide dissemination of infor mation."
