Tl FLY TO Ffii
Court Refuses to Hold Aviator or
His Aeroplanes by In?
junction.
New York. March 20.?Louls I'aulhan,
who has broken tlie world's record for
helght in a heavler-than-alr machlne,
but who attracted Interest hero chief ly
by refuslng to fly high, was successful
ln the courts yesterday. 111.. former
manager Edwln Cle.a.ry, who brought
Paulhan to thls country undor a con?
tract to pay hlm $2-1,000 u month, lost
In hls efforts to obtain an Injunction
restrainlng tho Frprichman from tak?
ing his aoroplancs out of tho jurlsdic
tloli of Ihe court. Me also falled to
get an order for the arrest of tho avia?
tor.
Clenry only smlletl when thls decis
lon wds read to him. Paulhan had
nothing on him.
"Why, that prellmlnary injunction,"
said he, quietly, "just gave us time tu
start suit for damages agalnst I'aul?
han for brcach of contract antl to get
out a wrlt of attachment on tlie aero?
planes. If Paulhan wants to take tho
aeroplanes with hlm he must tlio n
heavy bond. Conse.tuently. so far
my ieKal action Is concerned, I don't
care whether Paulhan boards a steam
shlp or stts quietly in Now York."
Cleary does not know where Paulhan
Is, and does not seem to care niueli.
If tho Frencbnian has sllpped' i'roni
the country, he did lt quietlyy and ho
dld not sklp away on ono. of his aero?
planes, becauso they are all safely
stordd away. Cleary has as his coun?
sel Clarence J. Shearn and Frederick
N. Van Zandt. He was ready last eve?
nlng ln the. Knickerbocker Hotel, ln
faoo of hls apparent dofeat, to smllo
cheerfUlly and inslst he .stlll has the
best on' Paulhan.
"I paid Paulhan." sald he, "$12,000.
and yet hc inslsts that I owo hlm $30,
000. and hls renson for refuslng to fly
was that I had not kept to my con?
tract In paylng him $24,000 a month ln
advance. You seo, when I brought hlm
to thls country I agreed that hls sal?
ary should stnrt on January 10. Wflcn
ho reached California I paid him $24,
000 down before ho" mado a. slngle
night. After four weeks thero. T got
other engagemonts and paid Paulhan
$12,000, but by thls tlme the Wrights
had got out thelr injunction against.
him, and I dld not fool justlfled in pay?
lng hlm $24,000 ln advance whon 1 dld
not know whether ho would fly.
"I came with hlm to New York and
T paid him $0,000 before hc mado
fllBht hero. antl at tho same tlme I
had to put up $0,000 as an indomnlty
to tho Wrights. The three fltghts
Paulhan. mado cost mo $10.000. Stlll
Paulhan lnsisted on gottlng $24,000
tn advanco bofore ho made a slngle
fllght here, nnd ho wanted .0,000 for
weeks when he could not fly, because
of the Injunction agalnst hlm.
"If Paulhan ls a wlse man ho wlll
come around and agreo to fly. but ho
is surroundod by persons who have
dlstorted hls view of thlngs."
Justice Nowburger sald he found
nothing ln tho contra?jt between Paul?
han and Cleary that showed Cleary has
any proprlotary Intorest In the aero?
planes. He polntcd out that Cleary's
remedy was to bring suit.

SCOTT & BOWNE, 409 Pwl St, N. V,
FIGHT FOR CONGRESS
OPENS ALL OVER STATE
Battle Ground Will Be in Ninth District, Where
Henry C. Stuart Has Opened Warm Cam?
paign to OustC. Bascom Slemp, Vir
ginia's Orily Republican
Representative.
For the most part, lt nppears, Vlr
glnia's representatlves in the neict Con?
gress wlll bo tho same as ln tlio pres?
ent ono. Wlille ehnnges aro posslble,
or perhaps probablc, In two or three
distrlcts. lt would seem that jnom
of tho Congressinen wlll have no op?
posltion for ronoinlnation.
Tho battle ground in tho State for
tho year, of* course, wlll bo In tho
Ninth District. ?Tho candidates thero
nro already nettlcd, slnce Henry C,
Stuart hes been niimod by tho Demo?
cratic conventlon, an.-l th?rt. ls, appar
ently no douht thut Conr_TPS..miiit
Slomp wlll be renomlnated without
opposltion. Tho single rtepubllcan ln
thu national House from thls Stato ls
roiilizlng tliat the blggest flght of hls
politlcal career Is ahoud of hlm, for
hls committeo has already met and
lald plaxs for the campalgn.
Meanwhlle, the Democratic cam?
palgn has been begun. An adjunct
committeo ha?. boen named, and has
hold a meotlng, at whlch plans were
madc to seo that evory Demcerat ln
tho dlstrlct fjets nn the registration
books nnd ls quallflod for thc franchise.
Tho leaven put in tho polltical lump
two yoars ngo by ex-Senator Byars,
thon tho Democratic nomlnoe, In hls
flght to ntilllfy tho enormou.i campalgn
fund whlch everybody l.elloves ls
poured Inlo the dlstrlct every year by
tho Republlcans, ls belleved to bc
hearlng frult,
Slnnd* Wlth Cannon.
Agaln. tho trouble.. 1 rt Congress aro
not likely to add to .Mr. Slemp's
i-lrength. It is being noted that dur?
ing tho fight cf tho past few dsiyu the
Vlrglnlan voted on roll calls wlth thu
Speaker. exceptlng when he was
paired for a tlmo wlth .Mr. Carlln.
Whllo thc Nlnth Dlstrlct Republlcans.
nre to sonie extent wedded to the Idea
of a protoctlve tarlff cn tho mlneral
wealth of thnt section, they are for,
the most part af a progresslve set,
and lt ls bolleved they wlll not view
with favor the action cf thelr reprn
Hcntatlve In nlignlng hlmself with the
rcactlonary wing of the party. Es?
pecialiy so, cinco it appears that th*
cause is one whlch 1? Ucstiii-d to
doeper oefeats as tlme gop. on.
As to tho Interests of the SouthewBt.
the Rcpubllcnng know as well as do
the Democrats that Mr, Stuart ls as
dovoted to them as ls any man. His
own affalrs are large enough to mako
hls interests ono with thosa of hls
people.
Sn far as' fightlng the Republlcan
i? conc.rned. the cnly flght outsldo oC
the Nlnth Dlstrlct will be ln the Tenth,
tho mlnority party bcln-r ? negllglblo
quantity clsewhcro in thls State.
Whlle Congressman S.-uindcr." may
have Democratic opposltion,. the gen?
eral Improsslon Ih tbat ho wlll not;
but that hc wlll have another oppor?
tunity to flght for hls positlon. Statu
Scnator -Parsons, the contestant from
that district, ls quotcd as saylng that
unless he ls seated by Congrcss ho
wlll not agnln bo a candldute, but nt
thn samo moment it. was announced
from hls dlstrlct that hls Republlcan
supporters wlll lnsl.it upon hls noml?
nation. It is likely to hfi the old flght
of ii.08. Thls year. wltl: tho trond of
fl'lnss settlng toward the Democrats
nnd on the eve, most peoplo are con?
vinced ot tho election of a Demccratlc
House of Representatlves. there would
)X.em to bo llt?tlo doubt of Mr. Saun
dors's re-electlon. thls tlme by a decl
slve majorlty.
Many AVnnt Honor.
Perhaps the most Interestlng ncrop
nniong tho Democrats wlll be ln tho
Second Dlstrlct. Already Congrosaman
Harry D. Maynard haB two opponcnts
?ex-Congrossman Young and Hon. J.
T Deal, tho latter belng a member cf
tho present Houso of Delegates from
tho clty cf Norfolk. Beslrtes, thc
friends of Senator E. B3. Holland. of
Suffolk, aro dolng all they can to urere
hlm to announco hls candldacy. All
four of thoso men command large fol
lowlngs, and tho flght In the prlmary,
If all of them partlclpato. wlll Indced
by a pretty one.
What may hnppen In the Tenth ls
a matter of conjecture. During the
politlcal talk of the past week, thls
dlstrlct has beon conslderably ln the
public eye. Tlie feellng ls now, how?
ever, that Mr. Flood will agaln oon
sent to serve hla constltuents. Tho
name of Senator Aubrey E. otroda ls
belng wldely used as an opponent. A
short timo slnce a number of. the
friends of tho Amherst man-said that
they -would try to secure hls consent to
a eontest, but he has mado no formal
announeement. Stranger things have
happened, and thero aro thoso who be?
lleve he wlll try concluslons wlth tho
powerful statesman from Appomattr.x,
Tljoro sqoms to be llttle dolng In tho
?other distrlcts of the Stato. Xpbody
mentlons opposltion to Congressman
Wllliam A. Jones, of the Flrst Dlstrlct.
Mr. Jancs now holds tho record for
tho House, for next March ho wll
have enmpleti'd hls twentleth year,
I,ook? Mlii' I.nnib.
Although thero hns beon from tlme
to tlmo talk of candidates In the Thlrd
Dlstrlct. tho averagt. liinn who talks
nnys that ln hls opinlon Captain T.amb
wlll havo no contost oyer hls seat thln
year,
There aro dnubtl_n8 plenty of jj.od
men In the motropolltan dlstrlct who
would accopt tho positlon lf forced to
do ho, but nono Is In slght at present
who wishes to take IiIh chance at dc
ft-atlng the only ex-Ccnfodorato soldler
In tho Houso from Vlrglnln.
Recent i-ondlll'.iiis ln tho Fourth Dis?
trict mako developments thero uncer
luln. CoiigresHtiian Turnbull has beon
In hls seat less thnn a weok. Ho won
lt after a lirird flght, ln whleli thero
wero throo othcr candidates. SIncfi the
death of Congresstnan Daaslter no onu
luts hnd nn opportunity to bulld up
much of an organizatlon. Nobody has
ns yet snld that ho would try for thls
1 nomlnation.
Congreasman Carter Olass, of. tho
Slxth1 Dlstrlct, and James Hay, of tho
Seventh. wlll, It Is understood, havo
oiisy nnlllng. Not a breath of oppo_l
tlon, It |s belleved, wlll cross the peace?
ful politlcal ekles cf these distrlcts.
From tlme to tlmo there has beon
talk of an ?tv-iplrant to eontest tho
Elghth Dlstrlct wlth Congreflfiman Car
lln, but so far1 nothing has ccme of It.
Prominent cItl_!*nH from thnt part o(
the Stato who wore In Rlchmond dur?

not hesltate to oxpress the opinlon that
tho Alexandrla man woultl contlnue to
