WRIGHT BREAKS ALL RECORDS OF AIRSHIP'S SPEED . EXCELS RAPIDITY REQUIRED BY GOVERNMENT ______——— AVIATOR ACCOMPLISHES MOST DARING FLIGHT Machine Works Perfectly, and When Aviator Landed with His Craft He Was Accorded Great Ovation. Taft a Witness (By Associated Press.) WASHINGTON, July 30.—Orvllle Wright this evening attained the zenith of hard-earned suc cess. In a ten-mile cross-country flight in the famous aeroplane built by himself and his elder brother, Wilbur, and accompanied by Lieut. Benjamin D. Foulers of the army signal corps, '"' not only surpassed the speed quire ments of his contract witn the govern mont, but accomplished the most diffi cult and daring flight ever planned tor a heavier-than-alr hying machine. Incidentally he broke all speed rec ords over a measured course. Ills speed was more than 42 miles an hour, He made the ten miles flight in 14 minutes and 42 seconds. He went up nearly 500 feet in his crossing of the valley of Four Mile Run, and his average altitude was about 200 feet. President Taft arrived on the parade ground at Fort Myer Just in time to see the aeroplane land and to partici pate in the wild demonstration which welcomed the triumphant aviator. A great crowd watched while Orvllle Wright had the machine placed on the starting rail and gave the motor a final test. The engine worked perfectly, and the people seemed to realize that an epoch making moment was at hand. They pressed forward against the lines which held them back, breathless, intense, eagerly watching every movement of the aviator and his machine. Start on Trip Lieutenant Foulers < limbed into the passenger si ii beside the motor. Wil bur took ills place at the right tip of the planes and Orvllle clambered Into his seat beside Foulers. He gripped the levers and slipped the cable which released the starting weight. The aeroplane sheet down the track, rose before. II reached the end, and skimmed over the ground lor 100 feet or more. As if drawn by invisible power, it rose higher and higher, reached the end of the field, turned at a slight angle and came about, facing the madly cheering multitude. Hats and handkerchiefs were wav ing, automobile horns were tooting, some overwrought spectators even ■wept as the great white creature turned again southward at the start ing- tower. v, Then with a short turn Orvllle swept about almost over the heads of the, closely banked spectators, and started straight southward over the center of the drill field. "They are off," shouted a thousand voices. , . Like a giant bird the aeroplane swept , unswervingly down its course. It kept I straight to the south, and seemed to he rising even higher as it passed over the river and heavily wooded country in the distances. Those who had glasses saw the aeroplane turn first to the left, then to the right above Shuter Hill. Then It was lest to View, and as the sec onds passed a silence grew upon the crowd. Brother Is Anxious As the delay in the .plane again rising above the sky line became seemingly alarming, great beads of perspiration stood upon Wilbur j Wright's brow and- his agitation was evident. Suddenly the speck came in sigh.. over the distant hill. "There it Is," everybody said, and the sigh of relief was plainly audible. Soon the aerial navigators were home again over the drill grounds, flying very low. Orville steered straight across the field, and at a height of about twenty feet, swung around again northward and landed easily far down the field. The task was done, and he was greeted with deafening cheers. Despite the notice nobody would be allowed on the field, there was a rush of the crowd which almost eluded the cordon of mounted men on guard. Gal loping horses brushed the people back, however, and the lines were re-formed. Wilbur at once ben in calculating the speed .if the trip, which, after he had consulted with Lieutenant Foulers, he figured at 42% miles an hour. "We were making eighty miles an hour coming back," said Lieutenant Foulers. Orville Wright said, "It's easier to fly across country than around a field." He seemed more Impressed by tho lesson the unusual flight had taught him than by any sense of his achieve ment. "We were forced off our course by several counter-currents," he added, "and in turning at the lower end a clown trend of air took me lower than I meant to go. I was forced to climb higher in starting back." Had to Climb Rapidly "As we crossed the valley of Four Mile Run, on the way back, a down trend made If necessary to climb rap idly to get up in the- air above the hills." Even more dramatic than Its de parture from Fort Myer was the ad vent of the aeroplane and its passengers , j A Telephone Call I Is Not Always I Answered | Does a first insertion of a I want ad.

J YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION TRIANGLE CORPS TWO hundred members of the Y. M. C. A. Triangle cadet corps and their friends gave a program at the Y. M. C. A. hall last night in honor Of the return of the picked battalion from their encampment at Point Loma. The hall was decorated with flags of various nations, streamers and college : banners. The meeting provided a unique feat ure In the heliograph signaling exhibi tion given by the signal corps detach ment of the Triangle cadet corps. Throughout the meeting enthusiasm ran high, and an ovation was given at the southerly turning point on Shuter hill, Just outside of Alexandria. There the usual crowd was gazing eagerly Into the sky. The d. tall of cavalry on duty to keep back the people forgot the pur pose of their presence and sat rapt upon their horses, watching the blurred | apparition. It was quickly seen that through j some miscalculation of steering the aeroplane, if kept a straight course, must turn the stake balloon from the east to the right Instead of from the west to the left, as had been expected. Suddenly the navigator "put his helm over" and the craft, with a sharp list : to starboard, cut across the course and turned the aerial buoy from the west. Undoubtedly he lost precious seconds j by the maneuver, but It afforded a splendid exhibition of the aeroplane's responsiveness and perfect dlrlgibility. Aeroplane 300 Feet High Beyond the high' promontory of Shuter hill the aeroplane was 300 feet above ground, but the trees and build- I ings on the hill called for a still greater altitude to clear them. The watching crowd saw the fore planes tilted, the great canvas bird breasted another air wave and rose into a higher stratum. The fantastic craft swept by. Wright i and Lieutenant Foulers being distinctly seen, the former much engrossed in I the manipulation of his levers, the sodiers calmly scanning the distance where the triumph was to come. General James Allen, chief signal of ficer, announced after the flight that the training of Lieutenants Lahm and soldiers calmly scanning the distance plane would take place at some point on the Potomac river, near Washing ton, where th,- ground was more level and freer from obstructions. There will be no more flights at Fort Myer. Tomorrow the official board will de termine the speed made today. It was : said to have exceeded forty-two miles ian hour. The Wrights, therefore, will | receive $30,000, including a bonus of $5000 for their aeroplane. — MAKES WILL; THREATENS SUICIDE IF REJECTED Young San Jose Business Man Pro. vides for Tombstone, Then Calls on Sweetheaert SAN JOSE, July After making his last will and providing for a tomb stone in the cemetery, L.

Ingersoll against her husband, C. K. Ingersoll, carried on by the Title, Insurance and Trust company after her death, In volving the recovery for her estate of nearly $21,000, came to an end yester day when Judge Bordwell of the su perior court rendered a Judgment in favor of the trust company. The proceedings began six years ago when Mrs. Ingersoll sued her husband for the return to her of $20,972.44, which amount she claimed was made up of gifts and inheritances received during her married life and which she en trusted to her husband for investment. Mrs. Ingersoll died ln Racine, Wis., a month after the suit was filed, and the fight was carried on by the trust com pany, which was named as executor Of her estate in her will. At one time the matter was taken to the supreme court, that tribunal , holding that the money was held in t trust by Ingersoll, and the proceedings were resumed In the superior court in an effort to recover the loans. Judge Scores Husband Ingersoll admitted he received the money from his wife, but contended that it was converted into community property, which should revert to him at her death. Referring to this testimony. Judge Bordwell, in his opinion, says: "In some Instances Ingersoll testified falsely and knew his testimony was false at the time- he gave it, and be lieving, as I do, that the defendant was I wilfully false in this testimony which he gave concerning one transaction, I I must and do distrust all the testimony he has given In the case." The evidence showed, said the court, I that Ingersoll used his wife's money in : his business, and that as a result he I accumulated large profits, and adds j that the trial was accompanied with much difficulty In the examination and, investigation of accounts and transac tions covering many years, Ingersoll seeking to obstruct and embarass the i proceedings at all times, instead of promptly and frankly rendering his ac count—a duty required of all trustees. Ingersoll is a rancher at Monrovia and is reputed to be worth $80,000. , A.

L. Browne of the district attorney's office on an In vestigation. Janie, it was believed, had committed suicide, and this was the verdict ren dered by a coroner's jury, but when the facts were brought to the attention of the district attorney, and it was ex plained that one bullet left a scar on the back of Janle's neck, the affair was believed to be one calling for an inquiry. Friends of Janie also have called on the district attorney and urgently re quested that the matter be looked into, with a view to learning whether his death was suicide or murder. Janie was last seen alive Saturday morning, and was in a cheerful frame of mind. Little was known about him, and he left no letters giving any clew tee the reason for his death. m . m BONES OF MASTODONS FOUND IN NEW JERSEY' Geologists Believe Find Is Most Im. portant Made In Recent Years PATKTISO.N.
