Seachy and Knabcnshue brought out
their dirigibles late in the day. They
galled around in the air. but could
make little progress against the high
wind, and finally came to earth, it
was aliiinst impossible f"r either of the
aviators to buck the wind. When the
brer/,,, was at their backs they went
sailing alung merrily. They were abll
to turn their dirigibles easily, and the
big bags rocked and swayed In such a
manner that llight was dangerous, so
they gave up and took the machines
to the dirigible tents.
Hamilton and Pauhan once died
a wind-bucking contest. The currents
were so strong they both were driven
out of their course and had to land
back of the grandstand.
Willard made two short flights, but
finding the wind not to his liking put
his machine in the hangar for the day.

manner shot Into the air carrying
two passengers'. He swirled around
the course once and came to the
ground at the northeast end of the

was high. The exhibition was one of
daring and frenzied the crowd with de

Eleanor Williams, once a nurse in the
home of John D. Rockefeller, and in
that of his brother-in-law, W. <\ Kudd,

ITf HKX the human tide was on the

' ' the wave swept down across the
greensward in an Irresistible swirl, a
hit of the flotsam thai was eddied into
ii protected, corner attracted the atten
tion of a portion of those on the out
going sea.
A littl" upturned face, tear-stained
and pleading. A little throat choking
hack sol.s that kept rising despite
bravest efforts at repression.
"I am lost. .Mamma was right over
there, and now I can't find her ami she
will he afraid." This with an in
definite gesture.
A whirr of heating wings hack over
tin' frowning black cliffs and a hoarse
mil- from ten thousand throats arose
like tin' crash of seas on a storm
he,it-n shore.
"She'll worry 'cause T am lost." Thai
was the sorrow. Peering into fai i
that flowed past in an endless stream
the wee lad turned away in despair.
"I am Kenneth Whlpple and 1 let go
of mamma's hand and they pushed me
away, and now she'll feel so had."
Then the tears pushed through.
At the police station near the en
trance to Aviation park the little 6
year-ohl lad stood sturdily before the
desk where a Herald man hail taken
him.
"Kenneth Clark Whipple, and I live
at 961 East Forty-third street. And I

AUTO DAY AT
AVIATION PARK
MANY MACHINES TACKLE ROAD
TO DOMINGUEZ
DEMAND FOR CHAINS IS TAX ON
SUPPLY
Slippery Roads Fail to Inconvenience
Cars and New Location of
Parking Ground Proves
Advantageous
It ms automobile day nsnin at Avia
tion park yesterday. Hundred! of ma
chines wore on the road when the
Bhower came up at 12:30 and hundreds
morn followed, so during the • next
three hours a steady stream of ma
chines flowed over the slippery road
to Domlhguez.
"It's :i good day for the chain busi
ness," said a denier in auto supplies, as
he filled the wants of a customer Who
had discovered the need of a set of
non-skidders. "This Is the twenty
fourth p;iir I have sold within the past
hour and a half, and from the way
they are coming the score "Will run
over fifty for the day."
The roads were slippery, and a good
pair of chains were almost indispen
sable. Despite the sloppy condition of
the surface of the highway, compara
tively few machines experienced se
rious troubles. None of them seemed
to require assistance, even on the field.
One reason for this, however, was that
the drivers parked on the northeast
ern corner of the inclosure. They pre
ferred to walk over to their boxes in
the grandstand than to take chances
on the hills and the plank road. One
result or this was the quick clearing
of the field when the automobilists
started home in the gloaming. The
drive homeward in the dull moonlight
was for most persona much more
pleasant than the drive back in the
drizzle. The roads were much more
solid on the return. Drivers of ma
chines are beginning to realize; that
they might have been much w<ft\se off
in the selection of localities for the
aviation tourney.
If there are no more showers the
road today should be In fair shape, but
chains will be necessary for a couple
of days.

U.S. SLY SLAP
CQA/ERT ACT SEEN IN ORDER
FORBIDDING FIGHTING
GREYTOWN ONLY BRITISH IN.
TEREST IN NICARAGUA
Insurgents Puzzled to Know How to
Defeat Government Troops Un
less They Are Driven Out
of Besieged Town
[ \ reoclated Press]
BI.UEFIRLDS, Nicaragua, via New
Orleans, Jan. 16.—The official declara
tion of Captain Thelslger of the British
warship Scylla, stationed in Nlcaraguan
waters, that there shall be no fighting
at Greytown, is still regarded by the
resident Americans as a move not as
innocent as it appears on the surlace.
.Many declare that it looks like"a covert
slap at the l"nited States.
While a similar order with reference
to Bluefleldß before the battle of Ri oven
was given by Captain Bhiplev of the
Dcs Molnes, it is pointed out that the
situations were not parallel. There
were no troops within sixty miles of
Bluefields, and Shipley's mandate oc
casioned no embarrassment. Govern
ment troops are at Greytown, and just
how Captain Matuty is to defeat them
unless Captain Theslger compels them
to mpve outside the town would put
him in the position of imposing armed
intervention, is puzzling the Estrada
government.
Greytown is the sole British legacy
remaining from the .Mosquito coast.
All the town has fallen into decay.
Such property as'there Is is owned by
British subjects, many of them negroes
from Jamaica. Notwithstanding this,
the United Slates recognized the block
ade which Estrada declared against
Greytown.
British Consul Friendly to Zelaya
British Consul Bingham of Greytown
generally is reported to have been in
terested in certain enterprises with
Zelaya. Tt is said that he requested a
warship be sent to that port on the
outbreak of the insurrection. The ap
pearance of the Scylla followed.
The order, of Captain Thesiger that
there should be no combat in Greytown
stated that there is open ground beyond
the town where the battle may be
waged with justice to both sides and
safety to non-combatants.
rapt. Thesiger requested Capt. Ship
ley to attach his signature to the non
combat order. Capt. Shipley is said
to havi forwarded the request to the
navy department for instructions, and
as his name was not signed it is be
lieved the American captain was told
tn have nothing to do with the order.
.Meanwhile Cant. Niblick had been
dispatched to Greytown with the Ta
coma, ostensibly for provisions, but in
reality to care for wounded in the an
ticipated battle.
Americans believe hero that ('apt.
Theslger's order furnishes a Further
reason for tho presence of tho Taooma.
• 'apt. Niblick is in position to keep a
n'atchful eye on the Bcylla and to
carry out immediately orders that
mi<riit emanate from Washington as a
result of Thesierer's attitude.
if ('apt. Theslger's order stands it
is probable that Matuty, with a foreo
of 1000 men, will proceed by land to a
point up tho river in tho roar of the
town and camp there, leaving a ship
off tho harbor. P>y this combination
ho believes he can cut off the town's
food supply.
"If they won't come out to fight, let
them starve." is Matuty's succinct ex
planation of plans.

TO KEEP HANDS OrF
"IvOS Angeles will keep hands off.
San Franfclsco and San Diego must i

to see the papers and doi utnents that
San Francisco has brought down here
in an endeavor to prove that they were
first mi the ground as a claimant tor
the Panama Canal exposition in 1915.",
This, in short, was the decision hand
ed out to the San Francisco delegates
by twelve directors of the Los Vngeles
chamber of commerce at an emergency
meeting held at the chamber board
room yesterday morning.
The meeting was called by President
Willis n. Booth at thi' request of M,
H. Ue young, James McNab ami C. C.
Moore, who are here r presenting San |
Francisco, and was convened -t in
o'clock yesterday morning behind

George I-:. Bittlnger, j. v. Vlckers,
Henry T. Lee, 11. z. Osborne, Louis M.
Cole, Arthur W. Ktmny, P. ij. Btory,
Carl E. McStay and Secretary Frank j
Wiggins, The story of the meeting :
was outlined by President-elect Jo
seph Seoti last night as follows:
"The meeting, which was a hurry
call, was addressed by .Messrs. James
McMab C. ('. Moo and M. 11. De
Young, representing San Francisco.
Each of them made speeches in the
endeavor to show that San Francisco j
had started the movement for an ex- ;
position at the lime of the opening of j
the Panama canal as long ago as 1904, j
long before San Diego had thought i
of it.
They told us that the indorsement or
our chamber .of commerce was being j
used to strengthen the San Diego
cause and urged us to reconsider our
action. In addition to the argument
as to San Frlnclsco being flrst in the
race, Mr. De Taung argued that Ban i
Diego was not able to make a financial |
success of the proposed exposition, i
owing to the limited population it had |
to draw from, and that it couldn't get I
the government to back it and that, I
without the backing of the govern
ment, the, ezpostion could not lie made
an internation affair.
"For IjOs Angeles, talks were made
by Messrs. Booth, Stevens, Osborne,
MfrStay and myself. The burden of |
our song was that San Diego and I
San Francisco should settle their dif
ferences, if possible, among them
selves. We told the San Francisco men
that Los Angeles didn't want the ex
position. We admitted that we real
ize] that there' was some force in the
argument that there was not enough
tor two expositions at the same time.
We knew that a conference between
the San IDego ami San Francisco com
mittees was to be held at noon and we
expressed our hope that this confer
ence would result amicably.
"The suggestion made that the docu
ments in relation to which city had
the first plan for such an exposition
be referred to a committee failed of a
second. The meeting adjourned and
that's all."
ARAB NATIONS SEIZE
CONVENTS IN JERUSALEM
Long Standing Quarrel Over Church i
Funds Results in Eviction of
Monks and Nuns
JERUSALEM, Jan. 18. —Having be
come Impatient of the delay In the ful
fillment of Hi" promises made by the!
Turkish commission and the Greek or
thodox synod the Arab natives of Je-}
rusalem recently raided nine convents
in the city, evicted the monks and j
nuns dwelling therein and occupied
the buildings with their wives and
children. The troops arrived in time
to prevent them from entering the j
tenth and largest of the convents.
This action by the natives Is due to
a long-standing quarrel with the Grfek
ecclesiastics, who will not recognize
the right "' ""' natives to any share
In the administration of tho church
funds, amounting to many thousands
sterling annually. Though the govern
ment threatened t" proclaim martial
law in the city in case of any disturb
ance the natives have so far been al
lowed to remain in occupation of tho
convents.

DEATHS IN TRANSVAAL
MINES ARE INCREASING
Sum Estimated at $,250,030 Paid Out
as Compensation During last
Ten Years /
JOHNXICSBURf!, Jan. 16.—Acci
dents in the Transvaal mines appear
to lie on the increase. In 1907-8 a total
.ii' 2022 men were killed or injured, and
in 1908-9 as many as L'4K9 employes
were Involved in accidents, IH6I losing'
their lives. During the last live years
over 10,000 men have been killed or in
capacitated.
These accidents, it is calculated, have
i nst the mine owners BOfnethlng like
11,150,000 in compensation, and they
have placed the Transvaal in the un
enviable position of having the un
safest mines in the world.
Allowance muat, or course, be made;
[or the fact that the vast mass c.f
the laborers employed are unskilled ;
and untutored, 1 it nevertheless it is
remarkable that approximately 40 per
cent of the accidents are attributable
to careleaaneu and Ignorance.
it is officially stated that nearly a
thousand of this year's casualties were
due to preventable causes. With the
view of remedying this state of af
fairs, the instruction of the workmen,
black as well as white, regarding the
risks and dangers Inherent in mining
operations is being strongly urged on
the responsible authorities. ).i-
