PATENT ISSUED Fi " 11 llSIf ISHIPj "ST LOXDOX, Eng., Oct. ln.-T :e Brit ish patent office has granted a pat ent for an "improved airship" which its inventor, Baron Adam Roeune, an airship and naval engineer, claims will be invisible. Though the airship the Baron says, is to be of enormous size, at a height of 1500 feet she will be .detected with the greatest difficulty, and at a height of 3000 feet she will be invisible, and. with modern engines, no noise will warn one of her approach. The mam principle upon which the invention is based is the equalization of light and, shade. The envelope is to be made of chromium, a metal possessing a highly polished surface, which is perpetually retained by a covering of transparent varnish. The surface or sides of the envelope, be ing like a mirror, will reflect the same color, bright or murky, accord ing to the weather, as its environ ment, and thus be invisible. The of ficials of the Greenwich Royal ob servatory have declared that the idea is thoroughly scientific and practic able. The local government board au thorities have been investigating an epidemic of infantile paralysis which has prevailed in Cornwall and Devon for several months, and their report thereon is expected to throw some light on the causes and cure of this disease, wkhich has been prevalent in America at different times. A medical man said that it was thought that the outbreak was one of cere brospinal meningitis or spotted fever which has caused many deaths throughout England. This medical man hazards the suggestion that the report of Dr. R. J. Rcece, who has been carrying on the investigation, will establish a close relationship, if not the identity, of spotted fever and infantile paralysis. Since the epi demic in Xew York in 190S, it has been suspected that the cases of in fantile paralysis in this country have been caused by a germ, and the medi cal men say the epidemic in Corn wall and Devon has proved the germ-origin theory. Under the leadeship of Captain Par ker, an archaeogical expedition has left here for Jerusalem to continue the work of the past two years on the site of the ancient Zion with the view of discovering the burial places of David and Solomon. Captain Parker, a brother of the Earl Morley, was in command of the expedition in which the Duchess of Marlborough was said to be interest ed and which got into disfavor re cently, with the Turkish government and Moslem authorities who accused that excavators of desecrating the sacred mosque of Omar. The second in command is Clarence Wilson, and (From Tuesday's Daily) Beginning today the work of crad ing the territorial highway along Mt. Vernon street to a point one and oue- ltalt miles south of the city will be inaugurated by J. A. Trenberth, con tractor. The grade will be reduced to a C per cent and capped with de composed granite, three weeks being esuuiaieu 10 piace tins part ot tne highway in first class condition. J. B. Girand, territorial engineer, who arrived from Phoenix vesterday, out lined the work some time ago, and states that had it. not been that work was temporarily suspended on tms portion ot the route the im provement would have been under taken previously and when funds were available. Mr. Girand also stated that plans for the new rein forced concere bridge of the girder type to span the Hassavampa at the new crossing, about 300 feet above the county bridge, had been adopted and construction would begin immedi ately. This structure will be one of the most durable, and will have a width of 20 feet and a length of 75 feet. In selecting that point to eros the river it was necessary if the maximum of C per cent was to be maintained in ascending senator lull Mr. Girand will leave todav to make a general inspection of the highway at points where work is being prosecuted. He states that in southern Arizona since the north and south line has been started there is a feverish desire to have the road rushed to completion at the earliest opportunity, and that when it is opened there will be a steady stream of visitors to view the splendid scenery and visit points of historical interest that will be surprising in numbers. JUDGE WELLS IN SOUTH (From Tuesday's Daily) Judge E. W. Wells, republican can didate for the nomination for gov ernor, according to advices received yesterday, was in Bisbee. and was meeting with a splendid reception from all and without regard to party affiliations. He visited Globe, Doug las and other cities, and in all places met scores of Hassayampa friends. lie expects to return to Prescott dur ing the latter part of the week. 1 1 r lajasaav 1 it" I l " h NtW HIGHWAY MPIIALAWAIIK BEING RAPIDLY RUSHED the party was completed by the addition of a number of English laborers. The expedition sailed on Wilson's yacht to Jaffa, from which port it win travel to Jerusalem. Un arrival there the excavators will resume work in the undergroud passages on Mount Ophel. This mount is now a cabbage garden which supplies Jerusalem with vegetables, but in ancient times is was supposed to be the site of the Biblical Zion. The work, which will be directed from the headquarters of the expedi tion at Siloam, will be supervised by Turkish government inspectors, spe cially selected by the imperial au thorities at Constantinople. Xone of the cities which has enter tained the athletes of the world com peting in the Olympic games has gone about the preparations for the event with more pride and enthusiasm thau Stockholm in its arrangements for the international meeting of 1912. The Stadium, which is in course of erection, and will be completed this year, will be a most imposing per manent structure, far more pretenti ous and costly than the plain en closure bearing that name, which was the scene of the last games in Lon don. Its site is in the most fashion able quarter of the Swedish capital. The government is -defraying the whole expense, and ultimately will become owner of the building and grounds. Purple brick and granite are the materials which the architect, Torben Grnt. is employing for the structure. The architect's plan shows a perfect ampitheater, entirely roofed over and situated at the foot of a hill which forms the northern side of the build ing. There will be a running track of four laps to the mile, and a grass football and athletic field which can be transformed in winter into a skating rink. Most of the seats for the Olympic games will be temporary, aul altogether 25,000 spectators can be accommodated. In its architecture the great build ing will be a fine example of me diaeval Swedish art. The srates and arcades are vaulted, blocks of gTanite are inlaid on the brick walls with a series of sculptured Swedish heroes, and eighteen gods and goddesses will decorate the gates to the entrance stairs. Two massive brick towers surmount the eastern and western gates, and behind them are buildings contain ing large assemblv halls. At the center of the northern arcade is a handsome gate through which all the competitors will march into the arena 011 the first day of the games. Op posite this stands the royal box sur- j mounted by a golden canopy. RESULT OF THE (From Tuesday's Daily) J. B. Tomlinson, who has returned from a protracted trip to the east on mining business, brings the im portant information that the coming state elections in Arizona are attract ing much interest, and that the out come is awaited with a decidedlv keen feeling. The consensus of op inion seems to center on the desir ability of electing conservative men and with that assurance to eastern in vestors the future of the new state will be strongly supported by a gen erous inflow of capital. Mr." Tomlin son states that theterritory has sud denly sprung into prominence and all that remains for the new state to receive the benefits of admission in inviting capital for investment is to avail itself of the opportunity by electing the right men to office. JOLLY MOISTS (From Tuesday's daily) While going from Prescott to Je rome Junction last night to attend the circus, the automobile driven by W. E. Rhodes, turned turtle about one mile from its destination, and Labe Johnson, Bert Johns and Perrv Bones were caught underneath and their faces considerably bruised. Xone are seriously injured. They were brought to the city later by" D. M. Clark, who went to their assistance. The place where the accident occur red, is known to autoists as a dan gerous one owing to the sudden de cline in the roadway, which resulted from the last storms, and which those familiar with are careful in passing over.
