Adams of the territorial fair returned yesterday after an absence of more than six weeks, in which he visited almost every point on both the Grand and Great AVcstern racing circuits.

Another trainer will be Gus Macey, the driver of the most expensive stable in the United States, that of George Easterbrook of Denver, which will in clude five horses of. $10,000 each. Tommy Murphy will be here with a big stable whose bright particular star is George Gano, the winner this year of the Chamber of Commerce stakes at Detroit. W. L. Snow will come with Star Patchen, second in that race with a record of 2:05. Charlie Dean will be on hand with sonw phenomenal horses, among them Miner Heir, which raced with Dan Patch, and Fleming B. Another famous trainer who will be seen at the fair Is Dan McMahon, who took one of the best strings over the Grand and Great Western circuits. Dick Wilson will be here- with Ifedgewood Boy and Lady Maud C, full brother and sister. They have been entered in the 2:05 and free-for-all pace at the territorial fair. They are the most sensational pacers that have appeared on the American track for years. They have been racing in the east and appearing in exhibition racers. Until this season the world's record for team pacing was 2:05. Hedgewood Boy and Lady Maud C. re duced these figures to 2:02. Mr. Wilson informed Mr. Adams that he had been informed by many horseman that the Phoenix track was the fastest in the United States and ho said that he hoped to cut the record a little deeper. These horses will appear in exhibition races here with the expecta tion that they will set a two-minute mark. . One of the most noted trainers of the country, Lon - McDonald, will be present. Mr. McDonald has the dis tinction of winning the biggest stake ever offered. This capture was made at Boston with Allen Winter. The amount of it was $30,000.

AVIATION WEEK'S ,, - I EFFECT ON AEROPLANES ORDERS FOR MACHINES AL READY IN. f Manufacturers Are Expecting a World Wide Business. Rheims, Aug. 30. Marquis De Polignac announced a gift of $2,000 to Latham by a Paris , newspaper, "for his beautiful flights." J-iUham accepted, but on behalf of Levasseur, the genius, whose motor hrjs made the flights possible. The meeting had been an enormous success financially. There were over 200,000 paid en ri-s to ' the Aerodrome yesterday and probably 100,000 more people wit nessed the flights from the hills out side the course. The aeroplane companies took ord ers for fifty-two aeroplanes, . most from persons not before interested in aviation- This alone proves how powerfully the imagination his been affected. Manufacturers belit-ve that sportsmen of every country will now buy aeroplanes, particularly as the number of actual flights made during tho week estimated at over 1:100, were without a single fata! accident. This demonstrates that flying Is no more dangerous than was automobil ing in its early stages.

Rumor Regarding His Condition SAYS HE'S ALL RIGHT He Would Have Taken the Public . Into ; His Confi dence Earlier if He Had Understood, How Disturb ing His Silence Had Been. Arden, Aug. 30. Mr. Harriman to day came out with a statement that he was all right. Though brief, the statement is straightforward and ex plicit, with perhaps a touch of patient resentment at the- surveillance to which he has been subjected and a re quest that reporters withdraw, not so much for his sake, but for the sake of his friends, who have been intercepted by zealous interviewers. The statement concludes thus: ' "If there should be anything serious I will let the press know, and as I have nev er deceived them I ask that the press now withdraw -its representatives and rely on me." The general opinion ' is' that Mr. Harriman would have spoken sooner had he realized how his continued si lence bred wild and sensational ru mors. It was my impressing this up on Mr. Harriman that the statement was obtained. The newspaper' repre sentatives, drew uV a letter and sent it to the Arden bouse by special de livery: "Owing to sensational stories from Irresponsible sources we ask that you issue an authoritative statement in regard to yonr physical condition. Nothing but that can refute these alarming reports. One story says an operation vas performed on you on Friday." This afternoon Superintendent Ford of the estate brought -his employer's answer from the house. Miss Mary wrote it at Mr. Harrlman's dictation, but across the top of the first page Mr. ; Harriman had written this rjes sage: "Gentlemen: Thanks for your letter. The statement below wa3 made by me over a telephone today and published. You see it covers the whole subject.' Mr. Harriman admitted that there was consultation between specialists at his home, but they denied that any thing serious was the matter with him. With the reassuring news the stock market settled itself and advances were general. DRAINING TIMBER. Forest Service Official Sends Warning to the Country. Washington. D. C. Aug. 30.
