Record. nm nil Tur rinno run un iiil iluuii (Continued from i'age One.) a respectable editor and respr ctablc I<aper. This is what he says about <'ongresaman Heflin: CONGRESSMAN HE)'LIN BREAKS ANOTHER RECORD CONGRESSMAN J. T. HEFUN. OF THE FOURTH ALABAMA DISTRICT. HAS SET A NEW RECORD FOR RABIDITY OF SPEECH. During the consideration of the prohibition amendment Monday the house was under the two-minu'e rule, which means that each member was allowed only two minutes to express himself on the resolution. Monday night Congressman Heflin sent to the Age-Herald by telegraph some 3.700 words of his *i*ech. with the introduction. "Heflin holds house in rapt attention white he spoke on the prohibition amendment, in part, as follows." Then the s|ieech began to come by wire. Sheet after sheet of it rolled into the AgeHerald's office. The telegraph editor thought another deluge had broken loose. Of course he is used to handling some 30,000 words of matter by telegraph every night, but he usually has control of the dike and knows when the Hoods of messages are coming. But Mr. Heflin'a speech was simply overwhelming. When the first thousand words had reached his desk he thought surely Mr. Heflin had been sjatakng at least a minute and a half, but as the flood continued he thought the two minutes would soon I* up. When finally the end came he sighed in despair and was heard to mutter. "Two minutes I What if he had spoken an hour." [Lsiughtcr. | ih. th?- modesty of this man! [laughter.) The alleged patriotism of a man who suspects yon people every morning when you get up?"I have suspicion of 11 iieople," and never had t te courage to name them. Yes; he sent the telegram "collect." and wrote his own headlines. "Heflin holds house rapt." I have seen the house ra|? him several times. lUtugnter and applause.) He sends a telegram "collect." lint to continue the editorial: liui Mr. Hellin not only set a record for rapidity. he was after inakiny another record. so he Kent thin llood of oratory "collect." Mr. Hclliri'x lony record in conyrcta make* hi? Alahuma friends feel safe in the assurance that the cotiyrcssman knows the Aye-Herald maintain* a Waxhinyton bureau throuyh which all it* telegraphic dispatches are filled. But this bureau was too slow for Mr. Heflin. He was out for rapidity records and wished to show some real K|>eed. so to save time he filed his dispatches without even the knowledge of the Aye-Herald bureau. He wanted this hurniny speech to reach the wailiny and breathless iieoplc of Alabama while it wax still hot. He no doubt, felt that extras would beyin to fiy front the Aye-Herald's presses as fast as the dispatches were received. The Aye-Herald reyretx thut it was unable to make room in its columns for this wonderful two-minute s|iecrh. and it rcyretx further that it was unable to accept his flood of inossayes collect, and they were politely but firmly returned to their source. I l.i tighter.) Now you understand why ho is angry with me. He could not get his telegram published alter lie wrote tin headlines in any jutper and has to pay his own telegraph hill. lie is mad because I print my speeches and pu> iui t iii'in. I am getting sick ami tof being bulldozed I'Vi'ij time I express an honest opinion in the house. I have served here otl' and on and find that you are all pretty lair men; I believe you are honest, but every time this man from Alabama gets up in the morning in Washington and gets his trousers on he thinks that this country is about half dressed. [laughter and applause.J He goes tilting down Pennsylvania Avenue, usually in a long frock, with a white vest, with perfectly maniculcd eyebrows, and wonders that Pennsylvania Avenue does not tip to one side because he is all on that side. [Laughter.] Then when he comes into the house and walks down the aisle and casts his eye upon the ladies' galleries, a hero, an Adonis, and then comes down here and bellows how patriotic he is and how traitorous you are, even without a megaphone he shakes the walls of Berlin [laughterj, and that gentleman feels that God and he have a monopoly on all the good things and have the world by the short hair. So far as 1 am concerned, 1 am tired of it. He said there are no secret treaties. He did not know. There are the they, have beeq pu^Vubllci^ weeks. He says he went to the state department and they told him they had not received any. Of course the state department has not received "secret" treaties, but they have been published all over the country, and one of the kindest things the New York Post ever did for our president was to publish those treaties, letting the people know what they had agreed on in advance, but Hetlin does not know it. You can not blame him. There are IS miles of bookshelves over here in the Library, and they could not hold what he docs not know about these questions. [Laughter.] He knows enough to get up here and insult every man who has a feeling. "Hcllin holds house in rapt attention; makes a moving speech." He moves them out as a rule, and those on the front seats without umbrellas usually move back a little to avoid the perspiration and the saliva; but when he bellows, oh, how bad you are und howgood he is, und he strikes that attitude so that the ladles in all of the galleries can see him. 1 give him and his friends notice now that I have hud all I am going to tuke of it. [Applause.] Why, when my friend Burnett asked him why he did not enlist, his knees knocked together. He has the most patriotic mouth und the most cowardly pair of legs ever put on a human being. [Laughter.] Then every once and a while he says, "God of my fathers!" Why. the kuiser, that old devil, is in the same business. He is like Hellin, he even puts God in us i no junior im-iiiuvi vi >?c ....... [Laughter. J "Hetlin holds the house in wrapt attention '?written by Hetlin, refused to be published, and he had to pay the telegraph tolls. 1 think that oUKht to be enough for hint for a week and a half or two weeks; but all I want to say to you. gentlemen?and there are some things that I would much prefer to say If he were here? is that when he is asked to show- what his patriotism amounts to, as he told our friend Burnett, "I am willing to sacrifice my sister's son, but I can not go"?a great big, striking, line, healthy looking man, and God Almighty never made a man halt' as brave as he looks. [Laughter.] Mr. Chairman. 1 have restrained myself, and 1 am glad of it. I am glad 1 was not allowed to speak yesterday, because 1 might have gotten angry, and I have one rule of life, and that is never to get up mad in the morning. It is what keeps me well and a little stout; but I want to serve notice upon him and those who are trying to drive l>olitics that if they can name one spot or place where I have ever tried to bring my party in on this lloor, I shall resign from here. I love my party, but 1 would kiss it good-bye in one minute to save one man on the Western line todav. where our boys are. [Laughter.] Let him go with my boy, this brave man. with the large lungs, with the courage of a cook robin. Let him shoulder u gun and go with my boy. My boy has written me. and he says: If any man attacks your Americanism. Dad. and I come back from Berlin with only one arm. so help me God. I shall take him on upon any rules laid down for fighting men. [Applause.] Let him show his courage instead of abusing his elders and his betters who are willing to give up their families for this country, and who will be silent when we think we can help the fellows over there. I am tired of it! If the secretary of war Is human, if he has made mistakes, for God's sake let us hide the mistakes from the world and from the enemy. We will win this war. but we can not win it by these men who have the brains of angleworms and the courage of cock robins, who swell and strut and sweat and spit in this body, and tell you that you are all cowards unless you agree with him; who says that he can see within your heart. Why. he does not know the difference between a heart and liver and bacon?never did have any conception of it. [Laughter.] Again 1 say. let us quit fighting each other and fight the kaiser. Because of the prevailing scarcity of men and the expectation that the next draft will still further reduce the supply. the board of education of Portland. Ore., has established a training school for young women to be restaurant cooks and waitresses to take the place of the men workers. AFTER WAR AVIATION What is Being Learned Now Will be Utilized When Peace Comes. The role which America's young aviators are to play in the commercial and economic life of the nation after peace is declared has been forecast by Hear-Admiral Robert E. Peary, U. S. navy, in a communication to the National Geographic Society, a part of which is made public as a war geography bulletin as follows: "That the young men who are training for fliers in war service will have an important and useful role to play in the commercial, industrial, and scientific growth of aviation is apparent. 'When peace comes thousands of men and thousands of planes will be required for the mail service of the future, for policing the air. for aerial coast patrol, for aerial map-making by means of aerial photography, for exploration, and for rapid transit of passengers and freight. "An aerial mall service has already been outlined tentatively in Europe by both the Entente Allies and the enemy governments. France and England have had committees at work for nearly 12 months on plans for utilizing their air lleeta and air personnel after the war. Bavaria has proposed an aerial traffic service for central Europe, and Prussia Is said to be perfecting arrangements for a peace-time Hamburg-to-Constanlinople mail and passenger service. "How extensive may prove this after-the-war aviation service may be surmised from the fact that already airplanes have been j>erfected which are capable of carrying aloft 25 passengers; other machines have developed a speed of 15u miles an hour, while the record non-stop tllght tc date is 1,004 miles, only 101 miles short of the longest water gap in the Atnerican-to-Europo air course, by way of the Azores from Newfoundland. The transatlantic flight is a certainty of the next few months, no reasonable person doubts. "British authorities have expressed the belief that it will soon he possible to go from London to Paris and return in one day, or from London to Bagdad in a day and a half: to New York in two days, and to Ceylon in two and three-quarters days. Air routes to India, with air currents and possible landing stages are even now being mapped. "Kvcry obstacle of nature has been overcome by the airmen-deserts, seas, and mountains. The attainment of an altitude of four miles is now almost commonplace, and the Alps have been conquered on numerous occasions. "That America is not waiting supinely for peace to be declared before she makes her preliminary preparations and experiments for the age of the airplane is indicated in the establishment recently of a well-marked air route from Dayton, t'hio, to Rantoul, Illinois, as an uid to the training of aviators. "This work has been carried forward under the direction of Carl O. Fisher, of Indianapolis, chairman of the Mapping committee appointed by the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics. "The initial program for a marked route consisted of serial j _nuryit,)e painted in large white figures on barn roofs, with an arrow pointing the direction where a clear field of the proper uera for safe landing might be found, in the event an emergency landing was necessary. "With the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as a central point, landing Held numbers from 1 to 72 were painted on barn roofs between the speedway and Dayton, at an average distance of about two miles apart. From the speedway to Hantoul the field numbers ranged from 1 to 2k; size used, ti to Id feet long by 24 to 3ti inches wide. The distance between the fields on this end of the route averaged about four miles. "The details of this Dayton-Rantoul ture of the task which the aviation sign-post poinecrs will undertake in mapping and marking the four transcontinental airways, proposed by the Aero Club of America and known as the Woodrow Wilson, the Langley. the Wright Brothers, and the Bell and Chanute routes. "The last of these routes, extending from Boston. Mass., to Seattle, Washington, via Albany, Syracuse, Rochester, Erie, Buffalo, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Minneapolis, Bismark, and Groat Falls, will be a richly deserved memorial to Octave Chanute, the pioneer aeronautic engineer, and Alexander Graham Bell, whose name is more frequently associated with other great gifts to humanity, but who In an unspect.-f^ular way was a potent factor in advancing man's mastery of the air. "It was the tlnaneial support and personal encouragement of the inventor of the telephone which largely enabled Samuel P. Langley to continue his experiments with heavler-than-airmachines?experiments which were of Inestimable value to Orville and Wilbur Wright, who finally achieved success. "Alexander Graham Bell's support was given at a time when the foremost physicist of Great Britain, Lord Kelvin (Sir William Thompson), the foremost astronomer of America, Simon N'ewcomb, and the foremost business genius of this age, Andrew Carnegie, scoffed at the possibility of man's flying. "The name of this airway will also be a tribute to Mrs. Bell, whose gift of $50,000 to the Aerial Experimental Association in 1907-1908 made possible the experiments wnicn resuueu m Glenn H. Ourtiss and J. A. D. McCurdy taking an active part in the development of aeronautics. "The Woodrow Wilson airway will extend in an airline from New York to San Francisco, with Cleveland, Toledo, Chicago and Cheyenne the principal cities en route. "It is proposed that both the Langley and the Wright Brothers routes shall have Washington as their starting point. The Langley line will end in Los Angeles, passing near Wright field at Dayton and within a few miles of St. Louis. The Wright Brothers airway will pursue a more devious route through Virginia, North and South Carolina. Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana. Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, and terminates at San Diego." Experiment of Far Reaching Importance.?Concrete ship, "The Faith," has been launched upon the Pacific coast She measures 7,900 tons. She took the water six weeks after the first concrete was poured Into the more than that of a steel vessel of like capacity. She will burn oil using 16" barrels a day, and her reinforced tank will carry 3'J days' supply. The engineers and all those who witnessed the launching are enthusiastic with regard to her serviceability. She Is described as expressing utility rather than grace in her lines and looks as if she might have been out out of rock so massive is her build. It will take 30 days to get her ready for her trial trip. If she stands the test of l.eavy seas the construction of f>4 more concrete ships will bo immediately undertaken. .She is well named "The Faith" for although concrete has long been used in the construction of small vessels the largest concrete boat hitherto built was not much over 6"0 tons, and those who took the risk of building "The Faith" deserve much credit for their courage. We shall await further news of her with keen interest and will chronicle It promptly.?Commerce and Finance. PALMETTO GLEANINGS. Happenings and Events of Interest in aouxn Carolina.
