RISKS HIS LIFE TO SAVE SPECTATORS 'Aviator Plunges Machine Into Embankmsnt to Prevent Slaughter of Sightseers. BIPLANE IS TOTAL WRECK Air Man Is Probably Fatally In? jured, and His Manager Suf? fers Nervous Breakdown. ISpeclal to The. Tlmes-Dlspatch.] Bristol, Va., May 22.?To prevent tho Slaughter of probably fifty spectators, Anthony Jannus, the Washington aviator, twenty-one years of age, who has boon carrying prominent passen- : gers In tho national capital, having j had many successful flights, late this afternoon deliberately plunged his big j passenger-carrying biplane Into a bank at the Bristol aviation meet, and | as a result lies to-night In a critical , condition In St. Luke's Hospital, while i his Rcx-Smlth machine Is a wreck on the old race track at the Bristol Fair Grounds. Jannus was thrown almost a hun? dred feet when his machine collided with the embankment. He was In? stantly on his feet, not realizing his serious condition for some minutes. The aviator landed on his shoulder and neck. He -was able to get up and walk to an automobile, maintaining that he wae not seriously hurt. While ! being taken to St. Luke's Hospital he ! fainted. A hurried X-ray examination i revealed that his shoulder was dlslo- ! cated. Iiis collarbone fractured. and probably other Injuries sustained, be- i sides bruises. Manager J. S. Bergor was so shocked that he suffered a nervous breakdown, and was taken to the hospital. He stated to-night that he had lost a fortune by recent accidents of his aviators, and that all afternoon long he had begged and pleaded In vain with the people to get back and give Jannus a chance. Ills men succeeded In clearing the spot for Jannus to land before the machine started, but in tho excitement j the crowd rushed back, leaving him the alternativa of dashing Into the peo? ple or risking his own life. This is the second aeroplane wrecked here since last Thursday, and It is prohable the meet will be abandoned. i Good as the Name. Virginia Made WILTSHIRE'S 1009 E.

Tho annual spring meet, and horse show of tho Virginia Racing and Horse Show Association came to an end yes? terday In a veritable blazo of glory, though all of the blaze cannot be at tlbuted to glory entirely, the sun play? ing an appreciable part In its dis? tribution. If anything, there was more enthu? siasm on the last nay of the meet than on tho first, ivhich Is sufficient praise for the card which was offered. Both In the ring and on the track the offerings surpassed those of ihe open? ing day. Mrs. Potts continued her winning streak, with Willow King, Prince Royal and Pretty Maid playing a conspicuous part, while Golden But? terfly helped her owner In several of tho events. Harness Horkci BeHt. While the timber-toppers came in for the greatest measure of applause, the harness events were by far the classiest and brought out the best fields. Colonel Purcell, owned by C. T. Friend, wsls the popular choice, as well as the choice of the Judges. This handsome bay gelding took off all the honors In his class last year, ana is regarded by the experts as the best roadster anywhere hereabout. Taking It all in all, the meet was a grand success, and rellects credit upon those who had Its management j In hand. While all of the fields were I not large, the class of animals shown 1 In the ring more than made up for j the scarcity In numbers. The events wore run with precision, and the crowd was never kept, waiting to find what was next. Captain Lindsay and his troop of ! horse again came In for unstinted 1 praise. The crowd enjoyed the ma- ! noeuvros more than ever, and ex- I pressed Its apprclatlon In long and I loud applause. To speak of the work j of the- horsemen Is to go Into extrava- j gant superlatives. Those who saw know, and those who did not have j missed a great opportunity and would i not believe the truth, so remarkable was It. If It were baldly told. StecplechuHCs Spectacular. The racing card wa3 the feature of tho day. and the feature of the racing card was the two-mile steeplechase be? tween the officers of the army. Tarn pico, winner of the two-mile flat race Saturday, was an entrant and led the field all the way until the stretch. Thou Knight of Elway. the trailer all the route, began to race and came under ' the wire a winner by half a length. It was as pretty a race as will be wit? nessed in many a moon, and Lieutenant T?te deserves his victory, while Lieu? tenant Rumbough need feel no sham? at having lost. Murphy's Hotel Cup was presented to the winner by J. W. Graves, president of the association. Captain Lindsay, who rode Nine of Diamonds, the touted winner, finished the first mile and was then unseated, never finishing. The other exciting race was the sec? ond steeplechase, which was won by Bergoo. the winner Saturday. Voting Bltizen. that game old steeplechaser, led the field for the first mile and a quarter, but then weakened and was passed by Bergoo and Essex, the latter two making It a neck and neck affair; until the wire, when Bergoo, under the whip, came In a shoulder to the good. Jack Baker was hurt at the next to the last Jump, and for a while ' his life was despaired of. The wound j was sewed up, and it Is thought he will recover. Flnt Races Tame. The two flat races, while furnishing amusement to the crowd, were com? paratively tame. Nloless won the first over six furlongs, handily, with Llttre Osage second and Bendaga third, while Flying Squirrel, the favorite, trailed all the way. The mile race was won by Otogo, the favorite, with Fort Car- i roll and Dr. Bert finishing in the order i named. Major Allen Potts, winner of the' class for hunters and chargers, was j presented wllh the Adjutant's Cup, do? nated by the Virginia Military Board. He captured first, second and fourth places In this event. The show was a success and the of? ficers aro already planning for the next meet. The workhorse parado was exceedingly interesting and brought forth applause as the mile of horses paraded past the grandstand. W. S. Forbes & Co. captured the Kellam Cup Jfor the best pair of horses, ahd C. W. Antrim & Co. secured the cup for the best pair of mules. How It Happened in Detail. The hunter and charger class brought out one of the largest and best fields of the meet. The officers in uniform, riding, lent color to the class. I Major Allen Potts riding Willow King, i Pretty Maid and Prince Royal, re? spectively, captured the blue, red and white, with the horses In the order named. Ben ColeV>>sio pretty chestnut gelding, owned by tho government j was awarded the yellow. Tho awards mot with popular approval. Class 17, for pairs of hunters, fur? nished the thriller of the afternoon. There wore no falls, but some great riding was axhibltod. Her Oraco and Christine, owned, respectively, by E. L. Sydnor and Mrs. M. C. Jackson, got the blue, with Black Socks and ^Amtilet, gecond. SVJUow, King; and Prince Royal, third, and Tho Quaker and Valiant, fourth. In the Claas for roadsters the very | best and classiest field of the meet was brought- out. Colonel Purcell, one of the best roadsters In the city, and, In fact, In the State, a winner last year, again captured the blue. N. J. Simpson's steel roan gelding, a splen? did stepper, perfec. y formed, won the red. Nlcketl, owned by Lou's Schulen? berg, got tho yellow, with Kentucky Belle In fourth place. Willow King Won Handicap. The handicap jumping class, green hunters to Jump -t feet, horses having won a blue ribbon at a recognized show, 4 1-2 feet, coused trouble for the judges, Christine, Black Socks, Valiant and Elf King being tied. Wil? low King, one of the sure winners at the show, with many more blues to his credit than any other horse, was an easy first. On tne Jump-off Black Socks, taking the hand'eap jump at 4 1-2 feet, was second; Valiant, once known as Safe Conveyance, was given the yellow, with Christine, the pretty | little dun mare, fourth. Only one of the green hunters qualified?Elf King. I Willow King again took the blue In the middle and heavyweight hunt? ers' class. Prince Royal got the red. with Razzle Dazzle, the government entry, third. Class 2, horses shown before a four wheel vehicle, conformation, manners and pace to count equally, was another of those hard affairs to Judge. A splendid field faced the arbiters, and some time was consumed In making a decision. Kentucky Belle, a stately chestnut mare, driven and owned by D. J. Gregory, was easily the fa? vorite of the crowd, getting applause on each go-round. Thla mare, while high-stepping and with good action, has a had curve, which worked against her in the summing up. Queen Bess, Miss Gwendoline Ruth? erford's black mare, was a fairly pop? ular first. Mrs. Potts, driving Golden Butterfly. a four-year-old. bright chestnut, captured the red. Fred S. won the yellow, with Robert W. Wll The 45 per cent, patent, new process I ?Obelisk Flour?wholesome, delicious j biscuits, pastry, etc. Vi is instructive, elevating and enter _ taining.

The class for hunt club teams of three hunters from any club or pack, horses ridden by a member or hunts? man or whip, was won by the Castle Hill Hounds, with Mrs. Potts riding Willow King. Joe Ladd on Prince Royal, and Page Stephenson on Pretty Maid. The riders presented a gay ap? pearance in their red coats and black hats.

[Specia.1 to The Tlmes-Dlspatch. J Roanoke, \ May 22.?After a week's session In the case of Mayor Joel Cutchln, this afternoon the flrst witness for the defense was put on the stand. This was J. N. Blake, the man who Bertie Martin, one of the witnesses, testified is the father of her seven-year-old child. Blake admitted that he was the fa? ther. The woman testified this morning, and on cross-examination, denied Ille? gal rel-.tlons with any man except the witness referred tc, and said she had led a clean life since the birth of her child. Judge Mullen ruled this afternoon that he would not nllow any wit? nesses to be put on by the defonse to prove, that the woman was a bad character, and he ruled the evidence of the first witness out. Judge Mullen held that the chas? tity of the witness had no beating on her voracity in her testimony to tho effect that Mayor Cutchln had at? tempted to take liberties with her. The question of the admission of the testimony was taken up and got? ten Into the record, this being done In tho office of the judge, presumably in order that the defense might be prepared in event of an appeal. When tho Martin woman was on the stand to-day the courtroom was cleared. The defense has a score of wit? nesses, a number of whom were put on by the prosecution. It Is said by those familiar with the case that the do fense has some strong evidence to in? troduce, which will greatly strength? en the case of Mayor Cutchln. Stumllng of the Clubs. Won. Lost. P.C.

[Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.] Suffolk, Va., Hay 22.?An echo of the Second District primary Investiga? tion of last summer was sounded thla afternoon In Franklin, where the Judges appointed to serve In the pri? ms ry next Thursday, sued out a man? damus, seeking to compel Registrar C. W. Darden to dollver to them hin hooks. Darden was served with a summons to appear before Circuit . Judge McLemore In Norfolk to-mor? row. Darden was a witness before the State subcommittee In the primary, probe, and bases his present refusal to deliver the regtsU-atlon books upon a rebuke admlntstared to him by Chairman Wclntyre, In which he waa told thoro was no authority to pass his records to any one, except officers of the general election. A heated campaign Is in progress in Southampton, and the failure of pri? mary judges to secure registration re? cords may produce almost endless cam pllcatlons. Lecture nt Centre Hill School. Byheo.
