Walsh's fatal fall occurred about a quarter of n mile from the fair grounds. Practically every iione in his body was biukcn and his face and body were badly mangled. Walsh had been giving daily exhibitions at the fair all week. This vear. lor the first time, he had been -doing "fancy si mils" in Hie all O-omeihlng which he had always declared he would not do. and lo which he attribu ted Ihe shock ins among aviators. At the lime of morta Illy his fatal plunge today, he had reached an altitude estimated at ,000 feet. lie began ti spiral descent, with Ihe heak of his machine point ed almost straight downward. The spectator were horrified when, all of a sudden, the up per plane seemed to waver and Walsh could bp seen struggling desperately to right the biplane.

Walsh never did fool stunts In the air for the gratification of the masses un til this year. Then he went from the wchI to the east, from small town dates to the "big time" unit learned Ihai there he had to shock, to thrill, to horrify the crowd if he was to con tinue to hold his laurels as a birdman of ability and daring. He thrilled. He ehctrlfled. He gambled with death for the pleasure of a sensation-mad populace. And finally he lost his wn gel' In u drop that almost defied death itself. Walsh learned to fly under Lincoln lieachey. All this summer he had been livinc with Heacbey, adding to those routine flights, which he boasted would never kill him, the dips and stilr.ils. the drnns and sudden turns and swirls about In inid-alr, wlng banked high, that finally killed him. Lust vear Walsh was a safe flyer, a sane flyer. Men uml boys flew with him after his regular engagement at the state fair here had ended, and ihev had no fear. He boasted that he would never be killed because he never tried any stunts. Vet today Walsh Is dead, only Iteachey is aide to dare eternity in the feats Walsh at tempted. iu:. iii:y is m niiKM.Y si itsTi i i i:i rem .iii. rntll ten days age, Albiuiueripicaiis were looking forward to seeing Walsh In light hero this fall, at the fair. hut tlu n it was learned that he had so many eastern dates he- could not make the long trip to -New Mexico, and Beachey was substituted by the aviation company for the promised Walsh.

WASHOUTS A A BROKEN AXLE PATRIOTI SM ONLY ..nrmr nnmin E publican Campaign Funds i for Good of Country. EXPECTED NOTHING RETURN FOR MONEY I By Morning Journal Spread I eil Wire. I Washington. Oct. 3. J. Pieipont Morgan told the senate committee to day that while lie had contributed $1X0,000 to the last two republican campaign funds, the gifts were made "without expectation of return." After saying lie hail contribute ,1 $15ii.fi(Ml to the fund of Hint, and $30, 000 to Ihe fund of 1II0S, Mr. Moriiini turned to the committee and exclaim ed earnestly: "1 want it distinctly understood that J. P. Morgan & Company never made a single subscription to liny election with any anything; promise or expectation or f return In any way, shape or manner and we never made It with out we deemed it advantageous for the government and the people. W never had a communication from any candidate. We never had an appli cation from any candidate for money and anything that we dirt, or lhat was done under my suggestion, and we were all in harmony, was that which was necessary for the good of the country and the business of the people. There was never any commitment or ex pectation of any return and we never go! any return either, from anybody." This statement followed a series of (luestions by Senator Pmnercne as to whether Xew York liniiuciers hud conferred and ascertained the attitude of various candidates toward business before 'making contributions. Mr. Mor. gun repeatedly denied that there was any concerted union among New York business interests in support or the republican cumlldatn In 1004. Mr. Morgan said that after making his oitglnul contribution of JIOO.OOO in 1 004, he was importuned to give .another $.',0,000. which he did. This, Ihi understood, was part of the so called Harrlinan fund and was turned over lo li. li. rtdell lor Ihe New York fund. Charles IL Duell, assistant treasurer of the 1004 fund, who followed Mr. Morgan on tho stand, said that oil the accounts of the committee weYe open to Mr. Cortelyou, the chairman. Colonel Roosevelt will lie the prin cipal witness before the committee to morrow. He will be ipieslloned as to his knowledge of contributions by cor porations to the 1004 cainpaicn and particularly as to the so-called Stand ard Oil contribution of $100,000, 1 which he has said he ordered return ed. The colonel will also be asked as to the financing of the preconventlon campaign for his nomination this ynar. Mr. Morgan at times chuckled glee fully, as when he told the committee that "there was no limit" to the amount the republican campaign com mittee In 1004 was vtilllng to accept. Mr, Morgan took his heckling by the committee In a holiday spirit and laughed heartily as, on leaving, lie told Chairman Clapp that he "guessed his expenses and witness fees would be ,11 right. itM)si: i:i.t DISS TIM II I) WITH ON LY 1 00,1101).

I'liilci'lying tills question is another which must really be settled by the same answer; namely, whether the national forest shall be parcelled out to Individuals and corporations and forest conservation, as a public policy be abandoned. "The first national Interest in those lauds is that of the continuance of timber production. It Is imperative to the whole nation that these areas lie handled with care and their produc tiveness increased. The second great national Interest Is their protection of navigable rivers arid Interstate waters. A practical consider;, t ion, which is leall.v conclusive, is that the protec tion, administration and Impr'ov enu nt of the national forests involve a finan cial burden which the stales could not carry."

Federal Judge Anderson so ruled today, his decision thus opening I" Ihe prosecution the light to show; a motive by going Into the details of many explosions, including that which wrecked the Los , Angeles Times building on October 1, 1 A 1 0, follow ed the empanelling of a Jury and a se vere arraignment of the defendants In Ihe opening statement by District Attorney Miller. Addressing the Jury and pointing his linger at Frank M, Ryan and the forty-live other men seated three feet deep across the court room, Mr. Mil ler said the trial was of the Instiga tors of Ihe "most far reaching conspir acy In the history of this country, In which, duii'ig more than live years, property of incalculable value had beep destroyed, and many, many lives had been lost.' Light fanners, two retired farmers, one grocer and one grulu dealer, all living In country towns or rural dis tricts lu Indiana, compose the Jury. The Jury Is as follows: Samuel Morrison, North Vernon, retired farmer, formerly a carpenter. J. S. Smith Winchester, retired I grain dealer. ' Seneca Chambers, Anderson. far mer.

All the Jurors said Ihcy had no prejudice against labor unions or against corporations that maintain ed 'open shops," Judge Anderson ordered the Jurors to be kept under guard until their verdict is rendered. It took Just thirteen hours to secure Ihe Jurv. Mr. Miller said the government would prove that the defendants, all of whom are former or present of lleers of labor unions, entered Into ., conspiracy to blow up the "Joints" of employers of non-union labor. "We will show that dynamite and nitroglycerine were carried from 11 place In one slate to a place III an other state on passenger trains on which thousands of men, women and children were traveling." said Mr. Mil ler. "Kvidencc will show that an In fernal machine was devised whereby a charge of explosive with a long fuse attached, was set olf by an alarm clock, so that the dynamiter could be hundreds of miles away when their desiruciive work was accomplished. We will show that Jain It. MtNu mara and John J. McNamara. who ate now In prison in California, one of them for murder, and Ortle F. Mc Manlgal, w ho has pleaded guilty, were active lu Ibis dynamiting business and that all the present defendants un guilty vv 111, them." Here Senator Kern, counsel for tin def. use, objected to the reference to one of the McXaniaras helng sen tenced for murder. "Is that important, your honor v" asked S.nalor Kern. Mr. Miller maintained that since; the McNamaras also are Indicted in Indianapolis, he had a tight to show why they were not present. lie said it Would be developed to what use the explosives Were put. 'We object lo this Sort of evidence on the ground that It is not compe tent." said William X. Harding, of counsel for the defense. "Kvery state In the union permits the us., of dviiainile and nitroglycerine for one purpose or another and the presumption In law is that If explo sive sr.; at a given place they are there l.gall. The only charge upon which these men can be prosecute.) under the federal statutes Is that of Il legal interstate shipments." Judge Anderson over-ruled the ob jection, lie said If a man from the slulioii In Indianapolis went Willi a .suit case containing explosives to.

It was pointed out that a decision invalidating the primary law, probably would have tho effect of Invalidating th November election in which case Ihe legislature could be con vened in extra session to appoint presidential electors. As the progressive republican faction is largely in the majority In the legislature It was assumed that It would select electors pledged to Roosevelt. Kdwiird 1. Wolfe, chairman of Ihe recent Taft republican state convention, was authority for the statement that no further attempt would be made to ob tain representation upon the .November ballot. "If there Is any discussion of the. ballot controversy at tho meeting of Ihe Taft executive committee, Saturday," he said "it will be merely Incidental." Milton L.
