Twenty Thousand Awe-Struck Spectators Watch Paulhan's Thrilling Flight
Roberta de Janon and Her
Waiter Sweetheart Are
Captured in Chicago
Long Search for Missing
Couple Ends in Strange
[Associated Preaa]
CHICAGO, Jan. 10.—Living as father
and daughter, Roberta Bulst de |
Janon, the 17-year-old heiress, and
Frederick Cohen, aged 43 and married,
a waiter at the Bellevue-Stratford hotel
In Philadelphia, who eloped December
2!> from Philadelphia, and for whom a
world-wide search was instituted, were
found and arrested here today.
They were discovered by detectives
in a rooming house. When policemen i
entered the house Miss De. Jan n was
playing with her pet dog, which she i
took with her in her sensational disap
pearance, while Cohen was seated In
an adjoining room reading.
They were taken to the Chicago Ave
nue, police station. Cohen at first pro
tested against his arrest. Ho soon ad
mitted his Identity, however, and Miss
De Janon, sobbing bitterly, pleaded
with the authorities to restore her to
her parents. *
Cohen revealed to the officers the
story of his flight with the girl from
Philadelphia — flight extending for i
thousands of miles through the United I
States and Canada, and in which a trip i
to England was Interrupted at Halifox
because the boat authorities would not
permit the presence of Miss De Janon's
pet dog on the vessel. * ..
Called Her Daughter
At least that was Cohen's explana
tion of the abandonment of the" pea
voyage, which was begun at St. hn,
>'. 8.. but the police believed they
planned to leave the boat at Halifax
In order to elude the detectives.
Cohen and Miss De Janon arrived
hen Thursday and rented a room in a
larding house. Cohen Introduced the
girl as his daughter Alice.' He Iden
tified himself as Robert King, and
aid he was a barber, and that he had
just arrived from Montreal In search
of work.
Th - girl, when questioned by the
officers after she had admitted her
Identity, said that she and Cohen had
reached Chicago with but $1.60, and
that he gave Cohen a necklace, which ,
'i" pawned to get money for them to
live on.
'I'll. apprehension followed a report
to the police in the afternoon by the
landlady, who had seen pictures of the
eloping pair in the newspapers.
Cohen is tonight locked up at the
/Chicago Avenue station. He said he
would waive extradition proceedings, 1
and the Philadelphia police were noti- I
fied to come for the prisoners.

the Applicant for
The Cape Horn saloon license that
the police commission has been cher
ishing since it revoked tlie permit sev
eral months ago was granted to Pa
trolman A. J. Lenox by the commis
sion last night. Just before the torn
mission • acted in this matter it ac
cepted Lenox's resignation from the
force so that a liquor permit would
not bo granted to a member of the i!e
partment. This is the first retail per
mit, other than a transfer of owner
ship, that lias hern issued to any one
for several years.
In making his application for a per
mit Lenox gave the commission a little
inside information that tightened the
evidence being gathered against the
Maler Brewing company.
Lenox declared that when ho first
considered applying for a permit he se
lected a location on Main street but
found difficulty In securing the con
sent of the owners of three-fourths
of the property frontage on both sides
of the street, He said the Maler Brew
ing company learned he wanted a per
mit and made him a proposition to
transfer a permit to him for 15000.
Lenox got his permit chiefly because
I he was not Identified in any way with '
a brewery and proposes to conduct an '
Independent saloon, where he will selll
whatever make ol beeT he pleases. He
has selected a location at 1201 Kant

—Mother Shipton's Prophecy.
TTad Mother Shlpton's wraith hov
ered over Dominguea field yesterday
afternoon the dear old lady, who in
tho year WOO saw in her vision such
wonders; as iron floating on the water,
messagea (lying through the air on
wires, mon walking on the bottom of
(he sea, carriages going without
horses, her perturbed spirit would,
have returned to Never, Never I*and
in peace, for the last and greatest of
her prophecies has come true. And
just as down the centuries men brand
ed Mother Shipton as a fraud, de
clared that her forecasts were but the
raving! of a disordered mind, so until
yesterday the real significance of the
new age* in which wo live has not been
borne home to Ijos Angeles, however
wide-awake' they may have been, in
reading the telegraphic dispatches. It
is one thing to read that at far-off
Rhelma men flew through the air with
the greatest of ease, but wholly an
other matter to Bee it with your own

New Thrill Has Come Into Life
It was not exactly tho ideal flying
ship weather. To be cafldid, the skies
were leaden and some of Jack Frost's
elves were about, pinching the cheeks
of the pretty girls till the rosea
bloomed; foot-warmers and heavy
shawls were in order in the grand
stand among the/ many thousands who
sat more or less shiveringly through
the Inns hours—that is, until the ro
bust gentleman with the magnificent
rotund voice and the aluminum meg
aphone at last made himself heard
over the
"Away down south in Dixie!
"Hurrah! Hurrah!"
of the brass band, commanding the
crowd with the significant word
And from that second the cold feet,
the aching noses, the pinehings of the
Host elves were all instantly forgot
ten and a new thrill came in actually
seeing men tly through the air like
huge birds. The miracle of the ages
was at last verified.
What is it like?
There's a mental "pick-me-up" to
the now iport that makes serious

years get rißlit up on chairs and sim

canes, throwing up hats, shouting.

cheered on and on as though there
would be no end. And right then and
there every man, woman and child of
the multitude wanted to fly—fly up
in the blue, cut away from earth—fly
—fly—fly—oh, the ravishing delight of
it all! Maybe the new disease of the
race track- in the skies is "flyitis,"
which is for the learned doctors to
say later on; but at any rate there's
no denying how quickly the symptoms
develop and how swiftly the disease
passes to the acute stage. Five min
utes is about all that is needed to turn
a cold, formal, practical, stay-at
home, conservative who counts every
dollar twice into a raving enthusiast,
who wants to go right out and pay
$70(10 for a flying machine.
Such are the amazing victories of
the new race track in the blue.
Airship Head On
You've got to o-o and see it! Be there
In the meantime, you remember about
the old toboggan gag. It was some
thing like this: "Zip!! Walk a mile!!"
Vis, that is about the way your eyes
pop out when you are watching the new
airships circling: in the blue.
It is also astonishing how easily the
start is made. All the fuss of the
Wright machine—the derrick, the 1500
--pound weight, the great solicitude
at a breath of wind, the squadrons of
cavalry to keep the crowds back—not a
bit of it! The aeroplanes one after the
other, in their respective turns, wire
wheeled before the vast grand stand,
black with people, and the sky pilot
took his seat. The engine was turned
on. The wheels began revolving with
lightning speed. It was the noise of a
planing mill. Then over the grass—be
fore your startled gaze!—while your
• yes are popping out!—why, man alive,
look at that!—the airship picks up as
tonishing speed!—like an express train
she is flying!—and, hurrah!—she leaves
the ground!—glides upward!—higher! —
and higher!—at 100 miles an hour, off
into the. blue!—hip—hip—hip—hooray!
And about 15.000 people go all but cra/.y
with the strange new thrill, compared
with which champagne is as mere wa
But this is only the beginning of the
new sensations that come now fast and

LOUIS PAULHAN, master aviator,
proved his claim to the title of
man-bird yesterday afternoon
when he soared as gracefully as a bird
over the heads of 20,000 spectators
gathered about Dominguez aviation
field. Men and women shuddered first
as they saw Paulhan rise gracefully
higher and higher, turn suddenly and
skim through the air almost as fast
as the eye could follow. He was di
rectly above them and they feared an
accident. Then, when he had passed
on, the great audience roared out a
mighty shout of approval tor the scien
tific and skillful accomplishments of
tlie man.
A graceful wave of the hand as he
sped through the air at a mile-a
minute clip was the acknowledgment
given by the dauntless French aero
naut. He could not understand the
words of approval shouted to him, for
he speaks no English, but Ijy the uni
versal language of the huzzuh he was
notified that his efforts had met with
the approval of those below.
"Sensational" is the beHt adjective to
describe the flights of Paulhan. They
were that and a great dual more. They
made strung ineji quiver with excite
ment and caused expressions of blank
amazement to creep over the faces of
the thousands of spectators.
Others Given Applause
But Paulhan was not the only one
to be applauded and not the only one
to make successful flights. Glenn Cur
tis?, C. 11. Hamilton, considered the
most daring aviator in the world,
Charles F. Willard, Roy Knabenshue
and Lincoln Beachy were given their
meed at praise and applause for their
feats in the air.
It was like watching birds to see the
aviators run along the ground and then
suddenly shoot up into the air. Not a
man or woman in all that gathering
was disappointed with what was seen.
In fact, the expressions of approval
were so numerous and genuine that
there seems to be ground for the belief
that the crowd today will reach twice
the number of yesterday.
At the Huntingdon park balloon field
in the morning Clifford B. Harmon and
Frank J. Kanne, owners of the New
York and Peorla balloons respectively,
made the lirst flights of the meeting.
They went up at 11:35 o'clock and
reached the earth about 1:30 o'clock in
the afternoon, covering twelve miles or
more in their tlight which took them
over the University district and out to
ward Colegrove.
Today Paulhan will attempt to break
the record for height now held by Hu
bert Latham, who recently went up
into the air nearly 3300 feet. If Paul
han succeeds In his determination—and
all who saw him yesterday believe he
will succeed—today's program will be
one of the greatest spectacles ever seen
in the history of aviation.
Two Slight Accidents
Two accident! interfered slightly with
the program as outlined. The engine
of the Glll-Dosh biplane whilch will bo
piloted by Hlllery Beachy exploded
while it was being tested. Repairs to
the engine will keep the machine out
of the contests for three days. Nobody
was Injured in the explosion.
Glenn Curtiss, in attempting to make
a quick start from mi uneven part of
the field, broke the propeller blade of
his new machine. The blade is the one
used at Hhelms and was considered by
him the best blade he ever made.
As interesting, though not as novel
the aeroplane (lights, were the as
cents' made by Roy Knabenshue and
Lincoln Beachy in their two dirigible
balloons. The control overe there ma
chines was perfect and called forth
vocilferous exclamations of approval
from the thousands below.
In all there were seventeen flights.
Eleven flights were made in biplanes,
four in dirigibles and two in balloons.
The longest llight was made by Paul
hon, who covered ten and three-quarter
tiles in -5 minutes and 6 seconds. He
could have remained in the air much
longer he said but he was flagged down
by his manager, Edward Cleary.

history California as the place
