Washington. July 2. After making two successful flights today the Wright aeroplane met with a slight mishap which will delay further tests until next week. The machine with Orville at the helm was on the way around Fort Myer drill grounds for the ninth time in the second flight when the motor stopped suddenly, sixty feet above the earth. The great bird-like machine came to a standstill, then glided to the earth without injury to its occu pants, landing exactly at the same place where the fatal accident oc curred last September. In gliding to a stand the machine struck a tree and swerved around with such force that the skids were broken and the right wing was badly ripped. After the mishap Orville said he would not be ready for another flight before next Tuesday at the earliest. The motor on the aeroplane had U-en missing explosions for some time before it stoped. Evidently some change had been made either in the sparker or the motor, as it was developing more power than on the previous day. Despite the mis hap the two flights today were the most successful that Orville has made at the Tort since his it-turn to com plete his trials. During both flight'' the Wrights went higher and faster than in the trials of the two previous clays. It Is estimated that the speed was about S7 miles an hour on an average, al though the machine probably ex ceeded 40 miles when flying with the breeze.

E G TD GLENDALE v V Sugar Day Was a Success From Every Point of View TRAINLOAD OF VISITORS And Yet Another Large As semblage Who Came by Carriage and Automobile. Great Event in the Pros perity Story of the Valley That the sugar beet industry is a practical one in this valley is at last an acknowledged fact. That the pro duction of sugar beets means good financial returns to both the pro ducer and to the manufacturer of beet sugar is also proven. The fact was easily apparent to the 600 people who took advantage of the special invitation yesterday afternoon and visited the monster beet sugar plant at Glendale and watched the actual urocess of making beet sugar. Not one of the 3u0 women, mostly housewives, who went through the beet sugar factory will ever again be heard to make the remark that beet sugar is different from cane sugar, and that beet sugar cannot be used in canning. Three hundred and twenty-five peo ple left Phoenix yesterday at 2:10 p. in. to visit the Glendale sugar fac tory. Over 175 others came from Tempe, Mesa, Alhambra and the sur rounding country in autos, carriages and other means of transportation. Five coaches had been thought suf ficient by the Santa Fe officials to carry all who would desire doing Gleiidale's sugar day, but when the long line of patient, prespiring Phoe nicians was seen standing for their tickets, the rfanta Fe Immediately had to do the rustling act and add two more coaches to the train. The long line at the window seemed like a great sleeping serpent, dappled in appearance, reaching away down to Center street. Wakelin's goreery had a private car for its employe, and thirty-four out of the thirty-five took .the ex cursion trip. Many were determined to know all the inside workings of the beet sugar factory and came pre pared with paper, pencil and the eye burning with the blue light of desire for knowledge to be applied in the selling of beet sugar. Many of the officials of bdth the Santa Fe and the Southern Pacific were seen on the excursion train, several of them never having been to the Glendale factory before. After several false alarms, in which the ticknt buyers at the Santa Fe ticket window mistook the switching of the train for its leaving, the sugar day excursion rolled out of Phoenix and on into Glendale, to the very doors of the sugar factory, in better time than is usually the case with the excursion of this time. The regulation routine events took place en route, such as the loosing of straw hats and gloves. Many a sweet Marie was dressed in her white fluffy fluffies, Roger and Gallets, and blue hair ribbon, to take the trip with her John, who, harnessed in a collar of several times the usual height, and brand new tight fitting shoes, made sickening attempts to throw off self consciousness and appear natural with the pride of his heart. Arrived at the beet sugar factory the first thing to greet the excur sionist's eyes was Old Glory waving defiance from the side of the build ing, flaunting in the breeze a chal lenge to the sugar world to beat the Glendale factory in the quality of its beet sugar. As the train slowed down at the very doors of the plant, the under-hum from the hundreds of machines at work told that a mighty achievement had been undertaken and brought to a successful issue. One could not help but feel the mighty strength tied by human skill and harnessed to do service to the needs of man. Every workman, no matter how humble his task, did everything in-l his power to instruct the excursion ist and point out the operation of the bewildering array of machinery. From the compressor at the main entrance to the shipping rooms not a person could be seen the whole afternoon who had been neglected. And this means much when it is un derstood that 500 people entered the plant at one time and passed through en masse. As one. looked from the center of the lower floor up to the skylights overhead, humanity seemed like crawling ants amongst the hum ming machinery on all the four stories. So un-nerving was the under-throb of the hundreds of sugar making machines, that when a pho tographer on the second floor made a flashlight, the sharp report and bril liant flash caused over fifteen women to scream, one woman nearly fainting. Every phase of the sugar making Industry was explained, from the en tering of the beets through the flume, to the refining and sacking, not an item was left out, every effort was made to show the housewife and her daughter, as well as the husband and brother, that sugar is sugar, no matter from whence derived; that this same sugar can be made of the same color as cane, and is as fine and easy of turning into a solution. Even the complicated process of whitening the brown product was gone into, a process that until recent years was a secret of the manufacturers. AfteiS once the complete process of sugar making is gone into the observer is shown that beet sugar can be made into the same table product, it seems almost ridiculous to assume that beet sugar is not equal to cane sugar or fruit sugar. Not only were the excursionists treated without any reserve, but with a stretched welcome that irtbant the giving of over five, hundred lunches in the cool lunch room Jiyt a short distance from the factory. Lemonade was found in barrelfuls in every part of the factory, and also in the office of the company, where work had been laid aside for the day, in order that many who became fatigued might have a place to rest. On mak ing a visit to the office the excur-. sionist was handed a good cigar, if a man, and a cute little sack of sugar if a housewife, a daughter, or mother of the daughter. The entire Glen dale grounds, including everything, belonged to the excursionist all of yesterday afternoon. At first it was hard to tell the in citing force of the warm welcome, but during the middle of the after noon, away up in the midst of an in terested lot of people could be seen a man attired in a blue shirt, pre spiring and dead in earnest, gesticu lating both With arms and smiling countenance, the virtues of a mys terious working machine. That was the only glance secured of General Mahager R. P. Davie during the en tire afternoon. He was here, there, everywhere, smiling, talking, showing, (Continued on patre T.) TO SAVE INNOCENT MAN SLAYER OF MISS BRASH VOLUN TARILY SURRENDERS. The Accused Novak Turned Loose by by the Police. San Francisco, Cal., July 2. Con vinced that in the person of James E. Cunningham, a quarry laborer who walked into a newspaper office last night and calmly stated that he had shot and killed Caroline Brash in the office of Gnry Brothers' Constructicn company and gave himself up because an innocent man was accused of the crime they have the actual slayer of the young woman, the police today re leased i James Novak, the Austrian, whom a remarkable chain of circum stantial evidence led within the shadow of the gallows. So strong -did the circumstances point to Novak, an uneducated for eigner who speaks little English; the fact he was the last man known to have been in the office; his dispute with Miss Rrasch; the pawning of his clothes subsequent to his request at an employment office that he be sent far from the city, that the police were at first reluctant to believe Cunningham's confession that he committed the crime. Cunningham says he entered the of fice just as Novak had departed and after the latter had had a difficulty with Miss Branch. Stepping to the .cashier's window, Cunningham renewed a wrangle of several weeks' standing over his che'k and finally shot tho girl. Cunningham in 37 years of agej The dispute was over $2.25. "I made up my mind to get the money or kill her," he said in his con fession today. "I bought a revolver for ten dollars and spent $1.50 for cartridges." Cunningham then related the de tails of the quarrel. He told how as Miss Branch started to walk away when he shot her in the back of the head. "I aimed at the back of her head and I am sure I hit her there as I am a pretty good shot at that dis tance," said he coolly. The story of his escape agrees with the statement of other witnesses. He decided to surrender and confess to save Novak against whom the circum stantial evidence was strong. P. F. Higgins, one of the men who was driven out of the corridor in the Wells-Forgo building by the escaping murderer of Miss Branch, positively identified Cunningham as the man he saw rushing away with the smoking revolver in his hand.

Baltimore, July 2. Thirteen Chinese were arrested in four stores ana res taurants tonight by postoffice insict ors, aitd held on the charge of using the mails for lottery purposes. A considerable amount of evidence was secured in the raid to. reward the ef fort of the postoffice to reach the cen ter of a widely ramifying Chinese lot tery scheme. It was expedited that it would be simultaneous with similar activities in other cities, and was planned as a result of many days care ful detective work by the postoffice inspectors. Wjth hawklike swiftness. Inspectors Kean and Barclay and a dozen detec tives and policemen swooped down up on the places, and threw groups of Chinese into consternation. Six alleged Chinese proprietors, Lee Hing. Lee Sam, Ijee Huan, Lee Hong, Lee Yu and Lee Kim, were bundled Into a police wagon and great stacks of supposed lottery tickets, printed green, were seized in each place. With apparent indifference to all that was going on, a crowd of Chinese who fre quented the shops sat ana looked on but denied knowing anything about such matters.

THE INDIAN ASSASSIN Has Created a Stir Englishmen Among THE EFFECT OF THE GRIM Will Ee to Increase the Al ready Great Difficulties of the Empire in India. First Political Murder in England in a Generation. London, July 2. The murder of Lieutenant Colonel Sir William Hutt Curzon Wyllie and Or. Cawaa Lal caca, of Shanghai, by Madar Lelof Dhinagri, an Indian student, on Thurs day night at the Imperial Institute, has stirred England in a manner un known since the Phoenix Park mur ders. It has been a subject for self congratulation by Englishmen that Great Britain was immune from po litical crimes of this nature. Great sympathy is felt for Viscount Morley. secretary of state for India, the difficulties of whose position are greatly increased by the murder. A strong feeling has been aroused against certain members of the house of eommohs and others who encour aged the agitation against the gov ernment. It is understood that Scotland Yard has already detailed detectives to follow Lord Morley and other connected with the Indian adminis tration. Newspapers of all shades of opin ion urge the government not to swerve a hair's breadth in the direction of weakening executive authority in In dia. Two" documents were found on Dhinahgri. One Is a confession of a desire to take the life of a high of ficial because- he was dissatisfied with British rule in India. The other was a sort of political creed referring to Englishmen as tyrants and having a suggestion of a reward in heaven for any one getting rid of prominent Britishers. The assassin's family is said to be well known in Amritsar, in the Pun jab, where his father is a municipal leader. The Hindoo came to London from Punjab some years ago. He belonged to an advanced section of the Indian nationalist party, and has been taking a course in engineering at London university. Curing the commemoration of the Indian mutiny he attracted attention by wearing a badge inscribed "in memory of the martyrs." Some of his fellow students taunted Dhinahgri, who threatened to cut the throat of one of his most active tor mentors. He was a hard workin-i student, and held very advanced po litical opinions. He was a fropjent-r of India house, a local center of In dia agitators. From statements made by students, it appears that he and Lieutenant Colonel Wyllie met once previous to the tragedy of last night Dhinahgri's brother, who is a doctor in Calcutta, hearing of his association with po litical extremists of India House, wrote Colonel Wyllie asking him to try to influence the student. Wyllie saw Dhinahgri, but the interview ap pears to have only embittered the young Hindoo, who nursed his resent ment pending a favorable opportunity for revenge.
