VICTOR NOVICE IN AVIATION
Manbird Who Accomplishes Dar-

Geography of Cruise

who resumed his flight from Deal at

7 o'clock about a mile from Mtting

(ABBoclatei, Press)
DEAL, ' England, Augr. 17.—1t has
been reserved for an American citizen
to perform one of the moat daring feats
In the history of aviation.
John B. Molssant of Chicago flew
across the English channel from Calais
to Tilmanstona today, with a passen
ger, and by thla achievement far sur
passed the feats of Blerlot, De Les
seps and the English aviator Rolls,
who afterward met his death at
Bournemouth.
The two-man flight from Franco to
England was the moat astonishing In
that It waa only* a month ago that
Moissant learned to fly and was so
little known among nlr men that not
•van hi* nationality was disclosed. He
was reputed to be a Spaniard and It
was only when he landed Jn England
today that It waa revealed that he Is
a young Chicago architect.
To make the feat still more surpris
ing, Moissant waa totally Ignorant of
the geography of his cruise. He had
never been in England and was obliged
to rely entirely on the compass while
crossing the channel In the teeth of
a strong easterly wind.
The channel flight was an incident In
the aerial voyage from Paris to Lon
don. Moissant left Issy yesterday with
Hubert Latham and reached Amiens
In two hours. Latham's aeroplane was
wrecked and this morning Moissant,
leaving Amiens at an early hour,
hi adia for Calais. His mechanician, Al
bert Fileux, who had accompanied him
across the country, took his place In
the machine when the^ motor had been
net in motion for the'dash across the
channel.
Thousands who had gathered to
watch the daring aviator were amazed
and urged him not to make the at
tempt in the face of the half gale that
was blowing.
MoiHsant cared nothing for the wara
iiiKH of tho people, and even the fact
that there was no torpedo boat to fol
low in his wako, but only a slow mov
ing tug, did not deter him. He made
the trip in 37 minuteß. When he des
cnded, his eyes were greatly Inflamed
as B result of the heavy rainstorm he
drove into as he approached the Eng
lish coast. An average height of be
tween three hundred and four hundred
feet was maintained over the water.
The coia was intense and both Moie
sant and his mechanician were be
numbed. When he. revived sufficiently,
he laughed and said:
I'IKSr VISIT TO ENGLAND
'■This is my first visit to England.
This is only my sixth flight in an aero
plane. I did not know the way from
Paris to Calais when I started, and
I did not know the way to London. I
shall have to rely on the compass.
"My mechanician, who weighs 183
pounds, had never been in an aeroplane
before and did not know where I was
taking him when we left Paris. The
greatest difficulty encountered in the
trip was landtng, the sea and land
•winds causing dangerous cross-cur
rents."
Asked how he came to attempt such
a flight as that from Paris to London,
Moissant said that the idea was dls-
CUMed in aviation circles In Paris and
was generally regarded as an impos
sibility. He said that not only would
he attempt it himself, but wouUd carry
a passenger also.
Moissant, who Is 35 years old, is of
slight build, but seemingly of very
jovial temperament. He first visited
Paris some months ago and became in
terested in the study of aviation.
His flight was made In a Bleriot ma
chine which weighs about 800 pounds.
He himself weighs about 150 pounds, so
that the total weight amounted to
about 1150 pounds.
LATHAM MKETS WITH MISnAPS
Hubert Latham, who started from
Issy, a suburb of Paris, to race Mois
sant to London, had a series of acci
dents, the last at Amiens culminating
in the total wrecking of his machine
as ho was preparing to resume the
flight, Latham escaped unhurt, but Is
out of the race.
The last stage of Moissant's flight,
the trip across the channel, was accom
plished in a strong breeze, the wind
being so high that experienced aviators
looked on the start as foolish. It was
such a wind as repeatedly deterred
Bleriot, Latham and others from at
tempting the passage of the straits,
and correspondents who had witnessed
the earlier attempts to cross the chan
nel confidently wired their papers that
Moissant would not start before even
ing, when the wind was predicted to
fall.
Nevertheless, as Boon as he could
nrrange for a French torpedo boat to
follow him across the channel, Mois
gant launched his aeroplane from the
cliffs near Calais at 10:45 this morning
ami started for the English shore.
The breeze was still strong and the
monoplane which HKeTßther Bleriot ma
chines appeared to spectators less
steady in the air than the heavier bi
plane, pitched and rolled so danger
ously that spectators believed it in
imminent dnnger.
Molsnant, however, though one of the
voungeHt aviators, managed his ma
chine with the greatest skill and as
the Bleriot with its guide passed out

AUTO RACES INTO CURB;
THREE OCCUPANTS HURT
SAN BERNARDINO, Aug. 18.—In an
automobile accident at an early hour
this morning District Attorney W. E.
Bryne, Attorney F. B. Daley, Detec
tive Arthurs and Charles Flack, sten
ographer for the district attorney, nar
rowly escaped death or serious injury.
In an effort to avoid a building which
housemovers had left in the street.
Bryne drove his touring car Into the
curb. The machine turned turtle,
throwing the four men out. The im
pact with the curbing was sufficient
to toss them far from the automobile
and saved them from being crushed
beneath the machine.
The men were returning from an
outlying precinct where they had gone
to secure election figures on contests
In which they were concerned. Daley,
who is a leader of one faction of the
Republican organization, alighted on
the prostrate body of District Attorney
Bryne, badly bruising the latter. Flack
was also bruised. The automobile was
wrecked.

Broadway and Is 150 feet deep to a 20
--foot alley. Located near the Hambur
ger department stor^and directly in
line with the expansion of the com
mercial district, the premises are
among %he most valuable in the retail
and banking section.
It Is the purpose of the Los Angeles
Investment company to improve the
property at the earliest possible date
by the erection of a modern steel and
reinforced concrete bank and office
building of fourteen stories and base
ment, the first floor of which will be

company required large and more com
modious quarters for the transaction
of the tremendous business of the
Institution, which was established
more than 15 years ago, along lines
and principles as old as time.
"We have been cramped for space
for a long time," said Mr. Elder, "and
we must build. While we are at it
we might as well build big and rlgh,t.
We have been considering the purchase
of the lot acquired for several months,
and we made an offer for it which was
accepted. Our architect has been in
structed to draw plans for the four
teen-story structure we will erect, on
which will be expended approximately
$1,000,000. It will be one of the finest
bank and office buildings in the west
and will be the permanent home of the
Globe Savings bank and the Los An
geles Investment company.
OPPORTUNITY FOB INVESTORB
"While the contractors are putting up
the skyscraper the Investment com
pany will continue building homes, as
In the past, for the shelter of the
people who are j-apidly flocking to Los
Angeles, the city with the brightest
future of any municipality in the en
tire country."
Mr. Elder will leave in a few days
for the northern section of the coun
try on a business trip, in preparation
for the establishment of a huge mill
and building plait in Los Angeles.
Before his return he will visit Vancou
ver, B. C, and all of the larger lumv
ber camps.
POLICE JUDGE SUGGESTS
NON-STICKING HAT PINS
Court Says Style Is Wrong and
Dangerous
NEW YORK, Aug. 17.—A new police
magistrate has placed himself on rec
ord as being for legislation which
would compel women to cover the
sharp ends of their hat pins with some
device to prevent casualties. The
magistrate, E. D. McMann, is a bache
lor.
Two very long and very sharp point
ed hat pins were brought before him
yesterday.
"Are these stilettos?" he asked the
feminine defendant. "Why do you
wear such dangerous adornment?" .
"That Is the style, and I must keep
up with the style," the woman replied.
"It is all wrong," said the Judge.
"Men have a right to use their hands
to protect themselves from being stuck
when they get near such pins and
then they are arrested for assault or
for being disorderly. I invariably let
them off. Why don't you put cork
on the ends?"
VIRS. McKIM DECLARES SHE

LIBERALS TEMPT
WRATH OF DIAZ
BY PUBLICATION
Congressman Isabel of Mexico
Predicts Disaster for Men
Recently in Jail
SCORES NEWSPAPER PLANS
Proposed Journal Reflecting on
Ruler Likely to Cause Ap
peal to Washington
Juan B. Isabel, member of the Mexi
can congress, wealthy mining engineer
of Guadalajara, Mexico, and vehement
defender of President Diaz, asserted in
Los Angeles yesterday tlbit if the Mex
ican Liberals recently released from the
prison at Florence, Ariz., send a copy
of their anti-Diaz newspaper Into
Mexico the United States government
will be asked to extradite the men.
Once in Mexico they wyi b# punished
for insulting Diaz, says Isabel.
. Unterrifled by Congressman Isabel's
statement, Gutierrez de Lara, speaking
for the Liberals, said last night that
the first Issue of the newspaper, which
will present the views of the Liberals
and whjch will be known as "Regenera
clon," will appear September 3. Ten
thousand copies will be printed, he
says, many of which will go into
Mexico.
"If De Lara, Magon and the other
Mexican revolutionists start their
paper in Los Angeles and send any
copy of it across the Mexican line
that contains an item which Is an in
sult to President Diaz or the, Diaz
regime, my country will th,en ask the
United States government for the ex
tradition of the men to Mexico," said
Senor Isabel yesterday. He is on his
way home after having conferred with
French and English financiers relative
to the sale of valuable Mexican mining
Interests. He has no respect for the
Liberals who have made Los Angeles
their headquarters, and in speaking
about them said:
DANGER OF EXTRADITION
"Magon, De Lara and their compan
ions are the worst kind of Mexicans
In the country, and are no higher In
caste than the commonest revolution
ists, each one of whom wants .to be a
ruler. The desire to rule seems to be
in their 1 blood. My government cer
tainly will : demand - their extradition
should they send their riot-inciting
papers across the Mexican line. •
"They are against Diaz because they
could not get political positions. When
they published : their lalst paper they
insulted the president of our republic,
and if they ever cross the Bio Grande
they will be immediately arrested. ■
"For insulting Dials these revolution
ists may be sentenced to three or four
years imprisonment." , ' . .. \!
When asked if the men might be
prosecuted and ' sentenced to*death on
other charges the congressman replied:
"Well, they would be given a trial."
- Diaz is the Roosevelt of Mexico, in
his opinion, Ninety per cent of the
Mexicans, he says, are happy and pros
perous .under the Diaz regime. In
telling of the 'recent re-election to the
presidency of Diaz he stated that out
of four million votes cast Madero, the
opponent of Diaz, received only 15,000.
During the election Madero was held
in a jail, charged with having violated
several of the republic's ■ laws. ,
Senor Isabel left last evening for his
home, but will return in several weeks
to this country, his eldest son having
decided to enter a college in the east.
Ho will make the trip with his son and
on the . return journey . will remain in
this city for several days.
LIBERALS NOT DISMAYED
Gutierrez de Lara, one of the Mexi
can Liberals now in Los Angeles, on
being informed of Congressman Isa
bel's statement in regard to the course
his government will pursue should the
Liberals send their papers over the
line, said: .
"On September 3 we will get out
the first issue of our paper, which will
be known as the 'Regeneraclon.* We
expect to publish 10,000 copies at ■ the
first issue, and will increase the output
shortly. - 'Regeneracion' will be a four
page weekly, and every article in it
will be against Diaz and his form of
government. • '■
"I know that Diaz fears the i coming
out of this paper more than he fears
a thousand armed revolutionists, we
have many friends in Mexico, and from
the time that our papers start going
across the line Diaz will commence to
come down from his high horse.
. "The Mexican consul in Los Angeles
is doing everything possible to hinder
us from getting out 'Regeneration,
and we have information that he is
going to request the postofflee authori
ties to forbid us from sending the
paper as second-class matter. -
"Myself and friends are daily in
formed of the political happenings in
Mexico and know that the reactionary
movement against Diaz is growing
stronger and stronger each , day.
It was only two weeks ago that an
assemblage in Labor temple auditorium
cheered the Mexican Liberals, and to
show its sympathy with their work
contributed *430 in order that they
might start, their paper. The staff of
"Regeneracion" consists of > Ricardo
Flores Magon, Antonio Villareai, L. G.
de Lara and B. G. Guerrero. :

TRACING SUSPECT
Chteago Police Arrest Man Ac
cused of Robbing Pawnshop
Here—Loot Recovered
Four words written on a scrap of
blue paper which was found by De
tectives Home and Carroll in the room
of Peter Voorath,' who was arrested
by detectives last Friday on a charge
of taking $2000 worth of jewelry from
the pawn shop of A. I. Shapiro, 404
North Main street, after gagging and
binding K. I. Perelson, an aged clerk,
August 3, led to the arrest of Harry
J. Nau, an accomplice of Voorath, in
Chicago yesterday and resulted in the
recovery of all the stolen jewelry.
The message announcing the arrest
of Nau and the recovery of the stolen
goods was received at the detective
bureau last night. The telegram was
from Captain S. B. Wood, in command
of the detective bureau at Chicago, and
stated in effect that Nau was under
arrest and his baggage, consisting of
two suitcases, was seized and found to
contain the articles taken from the
pawn shop of Shapiro.
Following the robbery of the pawn
shop, which occurred shortly after the
place was opened, 8 o'clock the morn
ing of August 3, Detectives Home and
Carr«ll were detailed on the case and
given instructions to follow every clew
and stay with the case until they
caught the two men responsible for
the crime.
From the aged clerk, Perelson, who
was bound, gagged and thrown on the
floor in the rear of the place, the of
ficers obtained a partial description of
the two men who held him up and
looted the place. They also obtained
a list of the stolen articles which con
sisted of watches., rings, diamonds and
stickpins. Especial notice of the des
cription of a.istickpin of a peculiar de
sign was taken by the detectives. They
made a search of numerous rooming
houses and while walking in Main
street ~met Voorath, who was wearing
the stickpin of which they had a de
scription, s
PRISONER RETICENT
The prisoner refused to discuss the
case and declared that he knew noth
ing about the robbery* When arrested
he gave his name as P. Marty, but
later said his name was Voorath and
that he was born in Siam, his mother
being a Siamese and his father a Ger
man.
All efforts to persuade Voorath to re
veal the location of his room proving
futile, the detectives began a canvass
of all rooming houses in the city and
finally, after exhibiting the picture, of
Voorath to scores of rooming house
keepers, they found the room In. a
place in California street near North
Broadway.
A thorough search of the room was
made, but the officers were unable to
find anything that would connect the
man with the robbery. Just as Car
roll and Home were about to leave
the room they saw a piece of crumpled
paper lying in a corner, partly con
cealed by a ruff. They examined this
paper and found the words "Shepherd
son, Daly, Tarr, Stchel" written In a
ecrawl on one side of it.
After a search on Sichel and Daly
streets the officers learned that a per
son answering the description of Voo

young man who had Just vacdted

'UNCLE JOE' TALKS
TO OLD SETTLERS
Speaker Cannon's Speech Lacks
Old Time Vigor-Says It's
\ Farewell Address
MISSNA PARK, 111., Aug. 17.—
Speaker Joseph G. Cannon today told
the old settlers of Iroquois county that
he probably was addressing them for
the last time. His speech, which had
been regarded as the opening of the
Illinois congressional campaign, con
tained little of the old time vigor oS
the representative of the eightieth Illi
nois district.
Instead he talked of pioneer days
and contrasted them unfavorably with
the present. The political tinge only
was introduced when he asserted vehe
mently that the protective policy of
Lincoln. Grant and Garfield was re
sponsible for the improvement.
"I may never see you again," he said.
"In the nature of things, this is prob
ably the last old settlers' meeting I
shall ever address in the goodly county
of Iroquois. The graves of my fore
bearers are in Indiana and Illinois, and
mine, when I come to cross over, will
be in Danville.
"My children and your children have
a common lot in the general prosper
ity of the country, or the lack of it.
We have not only to take care of our
selves, but of the demagogues Who
have hampered the general progress
with their false statements and false
promises."
During his talk the speaker evinced
little sign of fatigue, despite the in
tense heat, although he frequently ap
plied the contents of a bowl of cracked
ice to his head and held pieces of ice
in his hands as he spoke. He dis
played agility in aiding another vet
eran of the county to mount the plat
form and bowed deeply as the act \v;is
applauded. Cannon spoko of the pros
perity of Iroquois county, and declared
it due mainly to railroad facilities. He
contrasted railroad rates of the United
States and European countries, de
claring that those of this country were
the best.
"The demagogues would have you
destroy the railroads," he said, "which
have brought about your prosperity.
May fitfd send enough men into public
life, honest, brave and courageous men,
to stop this racket."
He referred to the work of the pion
eers in clearing the wooded districts to
make farm lands.
"You might think, to hear certain
parties talking conservation," he con
tinued, "and of the destruction of our
forests, that we should depopulate our
cities and farms to restore the forests
to their old-time glory.
"The system we are under is a pret
ty good system. It Is capable of im
provement, of course—there is nothing
not capable of Improvement —but you
and myself—and the way to maintain
our present prosperity and to inoreaM
it is to maintain the policy of Lincoln,
Grant and Garneld. I mean James A.
Garfleld, make no mistake as to the
name.
"I might make myself popular with
the Populists by advocating destruc
tion instead, but I thank the Lord there
are few Populists in this district.
"There are some who ought to know
better in Kansas, but we have got to
go on taking care of ourselves, while
the next two years Kansas can take

DELEGATES
Lyons (machine) elected by ten votes. >
With a number of remote and unim
portant precincts yet to be heard from,
the results of Tuesday's election were
definitely determined at midnight last
night, except for the nomination for
coroner. Dr. Sherwin Gibbons, the Lln
coln-Roosevelt candidate, was leading
the machine ■ incumbent, Calvin Hart
well, by only twelve votes, so the re
turns from the unreported precincts,
although they cannot materially affect
the other candidates, may swing this
important nomination either way.>
The compilation of returns which
dribbled in all day yesterday and last
night confirmed the reports published
in The Herald yesterday morning, and
the results are absolutely as stated In
the first reports, notwithstanding the
other newspapers published conflicting
announcements. McLachlan has been
defeated for re-election, his opponent
on the -Roosevelt ticket, W. D.
Stephens, leading by 3272 votes.
Johnson's plurality in Los Angelei
.(Continued on Vast Three).
