Slmon. Garros and Barrler. all. have
down over Rlchmond. and, perhaps, lt
la well to mention that they dld not
fly for i?ri?.es, as ha3 generally been
the caae before with other avlators.
lt had been promlseu that they would
execute darlng feats. With none of
them had lt been promlaed that he
would fly over the city. Yet all have
done It. Garros flew first, on Wednea
day mornlng, when he appeared un
expectedly over and beyond the Clty
Hall. Then Slmon told Alfred Moisant
that he wanted also to fly over the
clty. Mr. Moisant agreed, and Uttle
Slmon. ln hls .clean, whlte sweatcr,
smllcd and flew away. He mistook the
Jefferson Hotel for the Clty Hall, and
returned. And yesterday It was Bar
rler's turn.
A few mlnutes before he ascended. at
1:3,1 o'clock, lt was announced by mega
phone from an automoblle, that he
would do what the others had done.
He was ready before the nnnounclng
was finlshed, and sat quletly in hls
Uttle perch in the Blerlot, untll the
crowd was ready for him.
Uarrlcr a Stn'r.
Then some one yelled from the grand
stand that all wa3 ready, and Rene
Barrler dropped hls hand, and was
off. People here do not know Barrler,
and yet in Europe he is known by relgn
InR kln^s. He Is a friend of King Al
tonzo, of Spaln. who once senj him
a royal invitation to vlsit him ln the
palaco ln Madrid. Barrler ansv.ered
the invitation, wheh was rcnlly a com
mand. and had a most delightful tlme
with the boy ruler of Spaln. He was
the pet pupil of Blerlot, the master
bullder, and of Alfred LeBlanc, the
greatest prizo winner of France.
Ho ls only twenty-slx years old. His
aeronautlcal career began at the avia

i tion school at Pau, France, where he
i soon ostabllshed a reputatlon for great
isklll and darlng. Bleriot said of him
that Barrler ivas the flncst product of
the Pau school, whlch was almost
tantamouhl to saying of all France.
He afterwards becamo a pro'cssor of
avlation In the school, and his first
pupll was none other than the world
famous Deon Morane. Another pupll
was Rene Slmon. son of a multt-mtl
llonalre, now his lnseparable com
panlon.
His Frlend* Interccde.
Mr. Molsant had declded that there
would bo no moro cross-clty
flights. But Barrler besought him fpr
permishion to attompt the feat, and
had Simon and Garros to intercede for
him. Mr. Molsant had to consent, and
Barrler was happy. His Bleriot was
trundled Into place. and Barrler took
jhls aeat. When it was annotmccd tnat
j he ivould fly over the clty he was
i ready. and a mechanic started his pro
peller. He ascended rapidly. clrcled
around the grounds for altttude, and
then headcd into tho east. The buzz
of his powcrful motor gradually died
laway, and the monoplane became but
a dim speck tn the gray sky.
| He passed over the ground3 of the
iHermltage Golf Club, and then turned

of the lack of proper pollce protectlon.

grounds In hish lanes. At 11:47 Garros
was up, and then the crowds saw the
three Bleriots In the alr at the same
time. The graceful machlnes clrcled
around and above each other, dlpped
and glided. and Slmon found happiness
ln undertaking the sharp turns, which
have made him famous. It was a won

comlng down at l-'.fiT,, remaining In
the air cxactly oloven minutes, Though
it. was only the second tlme he had

take any foolhardy rl"k.
Barrler was scheduled to mako the
last fllght of the day. He had galned
.Mr. Moisant's consent to fly over tlie
clty, us his brother Frenchnicn had
done, and while he waited ln his
siender seat, it was announced to the
crowd.
Got L'p 2,600 Feet.
He arose at 1:33, flew lo the north
west end of the grounds. then swung
round llghtly and polnted to the i-.i.-t,
where tops of high buildings gulded
his course. He rose to an estlmated
altltude of 2.500 feet. When over the
Hermita'ge Golf Club grounds he trlm
med his wlngs to the south, and bore j
down the clty. wlth the rlver gleaminc
below him on his rlght. Ile couldn't
tell one bulldlng from another at that |
dlzzy helght, and when hc had gone
far enough, he turned ivhlle over
Kighth and Broad Streets. where
thousands looked up and saw him.
Then he headed northward, and passed
over Ghostnut Hill and Barton
Heights. reappearing over the Fair
Grounds from the northeast.
In eight minutes he had signalled
that he had ilnlshed, and then, after
a clrcle of the grounds, came down,
the Bleriot hopplng along over the
bumps In the fleld Uke a huge grass
hopper. It had been Intended that
this should be the flnishins (llght of
the day, hut Frlsble had tuned up
his motor and wanted to make another
trial. He arose at 1:42. circled around
several times. and allghted after re
malnlng ln the alr three minutes.

To-day. If it is in proper repalr.
Garros wlll appear in his dangerous

it m'ore successfully than any other

even to an avlator.
All the ?other men wlll also be sent

General Grant Has Become Con
vert to Doctrine of Uni
versal Service.
New York, November 24.?Major
General Fredorlck Dent Grant, com
mander of the Department of the East,
announces hlmself as a convert to the
doctrine of universal milltary servlce.
He would havo every activo male clt
lzen of the country get a milltary
trainlng which would quallfy him for
active servlce in tlme of war.
"I do not expect to see such a
scheme put Into offect for many gen
erations," he expla'ned at hls head
qunrter- on Governor's Islnnd, but
that lt will cventually como about I
have no doubt. Aa a step ln the right
directlpn, 1 hope that we may In a
few years see our standlng army In
creased to a strength of 250,000. The
present authorlzed strength ls 100,000,
but we have actually ln the servlce
only S6.000 men. At present our army
is only a nucleus. although for Its size
lt ls probably the most efllcient mill?
tary force ln the world.
"With an army of 250,000 men we
could ln n few years have ainong the
people engaged in peaceful occupations
1,000,000 men tralnerl to milltary ser?
vlce. I belleve that a scheme of con
Bcrlptlon would be advantageous. I
would dlvlde the country Into milltary
dlstricts and requlre each distrlct to
provldo the enlarged army each year
with a quota of recruits based upon
populatlon.
"Milltary servlce has a beneflcial
effect on the morale of the country.
Every man who has served under the
dlaclpllne of an army such as ours
exerts an upllfting and educatlonai in
