LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, MARC^FI 8, 1000. LONG BEACH No. 4 Pin* Street. Phone Homo 2(0 AERONAUT SWEPT OUT TO OCEAN BY WIND WITH DIFFICULTY ESCAPES DEATH BY BREAKERS Parachute Enables Daring Amateur to Keep Afloat —Had Ascended 3000 Feet Before He Cut Loose [Special to The Herald] LONG BEACH, March 7.—Thousands of people who witnessed the third bal loon ascension of young Jean Savage of this city this afternoon feared they would witness a fatality. Savage went up about 3000 feet, an unusual height, before cutting loose his parachute, and the stiff wind prevailing at that alti tude swept him swiftly out to Baa. BKVtige came down in his parachute beyond the breakers, and without assistance, but with much difficulty, gained the shore, the parachute buoy ing him up. The parachute was washed up by the breakers shortly aft erward. The balloon came down some distance from shore, but was recovered by launches.

TELLS FUTURE OF AEROPLANE LEWIS NIXON DESCRIBES USES OF AIR CRAFT Cities Will Have Landing Stations on Tops of Houses —Will Anchor in the Air, Reached by Elevators [By Associated Pr»«».] NEW YORK, March 7.—Lewis Nixon, the well known shipbuilder, spoke of the possibilities of aerial navigation in an address at the Richmond County Automobile club annual dinner last night. "Aeroplanes in war, he said, would be used for scounting, the dropping of small bombs and the attack of large dirigibles. The field of the helicopter probably would be largely on the warship, be cause of Its ability to rise without a start. Cities soon would have regular land ing stations on the tops of houses, Mr. Nixon said, and already persons were building docks where airships might alight safely. Just as a big ship anchored far from shore in deep water, so the airship would anchor high up in the air and be reached by special elevators held by cables fastened to shackles on the ground. Based upon observation and calcula tions made from results already ob tained and hence in no sense specula tive, it was safe to predict, he said, that the airship would soon appear with a length of from 2500 to 3000 feet, which could easily go with 100 passen gers from here to Europe and return within a week. WOMAN INJURED IN AUTOMOBILE CRASH Machine at High Speed Is Wedged Between Street Car and Phaeton. Chauffeur Escapes Safely SACRAMENTO, March 7.—Mrs. John R.

PHILIPPINES TO SHOW PROGRESS ISLAND POSSESSIONS WILL HAVE EXHIBIT LAND OF ROMANCE AND GOLD TO BE REPRESENTED Will Demonstrate What Modern Ma chinery and Methods Have Done Since the War with Spain MANILA, P. 1., March 7.—Ever since! tho advent of the Spanish into the Phil ippine archipelago, under the leader ship of the pioneer of discoverers, Ma gellan, the presence ot gold has kept alive the interest of European nations In the Malay islands, and in its pursuit wars have been waged and blood ex pended. When the Yslas Fillplnas paid their annual tribute to Mexico th* de mand from the home country was for gold. Gold was in some way secured, and in return came the silver pesos ot" Mexico, and men to administer the laws for the struggling lund. This wa« not happily received, and the many dissensions opened the way for the free booters of China, under the leadership of the old pirate, Ming Lung. Cities were sacked and Immunity was only secured throug the agency of gold. Wlnn the British breached the intra muros of Manila the demand was iii-:iin for payment In the yellow metal, Which was known to be gathered In places in the Philippines. Again it was forthcoming. And so the unequal con tests were prolonged for 200 years, and the one constant cry was for the same metal Internal difficulties, political and religious, eventually became so se rious that the powerful arm of Spain took charge with a strong hand, and the wealth of the Philippines was de veloped along agricultural and pastoral lines. Gold in more or less limited quantities has for the last century and a half been produced in the Philippines. But It has occupied a minor position among the wealth producing commodities of the country. At no time had advanced | machinery or methods been applied in its production until the advent of the Americans, since thr war with Spain. Wild Tribes Get Gold In the wild hill country of Benquet nncl the northern parts of Luzon the head-hunting tribes of Igorottes and Ilongotes have, in their extremely crude manner, managed to secure, when nec essary for their wants, sufficient native gold to meet their requirements. It has been used by them with some little crude skill in the making of various articles of personal adornment, and these different articles have bren of fered in barter for ye;irs and years, to such adventurous traders and pros pectors asj have braved the dangers of the journey Into the hill country. Yet the amount of native gold collected and brought to the outside world was for| years small and unimportant. The oldi and substantiated reports of a wonder ful gold production were for long re-1 garded as somewhat of a myth, and! the unsettled conditions of the pntfrej ( ountry prevented any systematic work of development to be prosecuted. During the past five years the condi tions of the islands have undergone a complete change. Localities which for years had been unsafe for prospecting i and development are now occupied with no dangers to life or undue hard ships of existence. Increased facilities for freighting have made it possible for the transportation of desirable and suitable machinery for mining pur poses, and the mining industry of the Philippines is again assuming the im portant position it once held in the days when gold was the lure of thej pioneer and argonaut. Two American companies have been especially active in the mining of gold In the islands. The Parcale Gold Dredging company, of which F. B. In gersoll is president, and the Benquet Consolidated Mining company, of which! M. A. Clarke is manager and president, i The latter company is engaged In! quartz mining work in the province ofj Benquet. while the former is carrying, on gold dredging operations on the Par- j cale river, in the province of Ambos j Camarines, both of which properties* are on the island of Luzon. The Par-! cale and Benquet companies are both at present on a strong paying basis, and a number of other companies of American, Spanish and English owner ship have developed paying properties. At the coming Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition, opening at Seattle on June first, the mining organizations of the Philippines will occupy a prominent position in the Philippines display, and the methods of working and mineral production will be displayed through out the fair. The collection of miner als of different quartz and place? mines has been assembled during the past two years, and for richness it claims to rival and equal any other display yet exhibited. The Insular department of mines will nli=o have a complete and comprehen sive exhibit, and the recently discov ered coal and base metal workings will be shown with history and possibili ties of more extensive and profitable developments.

L 6 Febre SOCIALISTS ORGANIZE NEW SUBURBAN LOCAL ORGANIZATION TAKES PLACE OF COUNTY BODY Will Act Independently of Los Angeleo City Branch and Expects to Build Up Strong Machine The breach between the two wings of the Socialists of Los Angeles was widened further yesterday afternoon when the c'loudesley Johns clement of the party met at Burbank hall, Main street and took initiatory steps for the formation of a suburban local, Los An geles county. A county local, which existed for nearly three years, was dissolved last month after various charges of mis management in connection with- Us conduct of the organization had been made, causing a merry warfare between the former officers of the county local and the members of the Los Angeles city branch, to the efforts of which latter branch, it is claimed, the disso lution was due. To form a new local that should be Independent of the Los Angeles city branch was the object of yesterday's meeting, and the bitter feeling of the Jonhs element toward the city brunch was shown In the discussion. The purpose of the new local, as out lined by Mr. Johns, who called the meeting to order, is to consolidate the various city and town branches of Los Angeles county and to include the for eign speaking language branches of Los Angeles. , Precautions were taken to see that no disturbing element would participate in the meeting, and only those delegates armed with proper credentials were al lowed to take part In the proceedings. A large number Of members of the Los, Angeles city branch were present , at the meeting, but only as spectators, ' and the meeting of the "rebels," as the organizers of the new branch arc termed, was entirely harmonious. Mr. Johns explained to the. delegates that the Socialists who had the in terests of the party at heart decided ■ that, by consolidating the scattered branches and the foreign-speaking branches of the city, a powerful organ ization would be welded together that could accomplish great things without ' the Interference or hindrance of the Los Angeles branch. Illegal Means Charged Itvwas alleged at the meeting that the vote for the dissolution of the county : local had i been obtained by illegal and ; underhanded schemes, which precluded the possibility of a fair expression of opinion. > ' There was much discussion as to . whether the meeting should vote to or ganize an official «-ounty branch or simply a federation, but it was declared ; I as the MUM of the meeting that an of ' ' ficial county branch should be organ ized. In order to accomplish this it will be necessary to obtain a separate charter from the executive committee of the ! state. • If the executive board refuses to grant a special charter then a federa tion will be formed, but the opinion .; was expressed that the state executive , committee, after hearing an impartial account of the recent troubles, would I not hesitate to grant the charter. '. The affairs of the new local will he 1 governed as was the former county branch, and will pay the usual financial tribute to the state coffers. Fifty delegates attended the meeting, and everyone was enthusiastic over the i new organization. That Los Angeles ', county will have one of the strongest | Socialist machines In California was the unanimous opinion of those present. ■■"At the meeting in Burbank hall yes terday afternoon officers were elected for the newly organized Los Angeles county local of the Socialist party: Or | ganizer, Cloudesley Johns; secretary, F.

MANY LABOR UNIONS MAY JOIN IN STRIKE General Public Continues to Patronize Cars and Suspension Is Marked by Absence of Disorder MANILA, March B:—The strike of the street car men in this city, which was declared March 4, has not spread beyond the railway operatives as yet, though there is still a possibility that other labor organizations will go^ out in sympathy. The various labor unions of the city held a series of meetings on Sunday fur the purpose of organizing an ef fective boycott against the street rail way, but the general public continues to patronize the cars as freely as has been the case since the strike ■ was begun. There has been no disorder. Details of the city police, armed with shot guns, are placed aboard the cars at night, but they have not been called upon to quell any riots. Governor General Smith lias decided to remain in Manila in order to keep a close watch on the developments of the strike situation. The other mem bers of the insular commission have gone to Baguio In the province of Benguet. -. Patrolman Shoots Sergeant ST. LOUIS, March 7.—Police Ser geant Patrick E.

Financial Review NEW YORK, March 8.--The irregular and uncertain movements of last week in the stock market were the reflection of the unformed speculative sentiment.
