FRENCH HOLD AIR SHIP MANEUVERS Eighty Thousand Troops with Aerial Auxiliary Engage in Mimic Warfare AEROPLANES USED AS SCOUTS American Military Attache Major T. Bentley Mott Watches the Operations Associate *. Press] ' GRAND VILLIERES, France, Sept. 12.—The French army with the new auxiliary of aviation added, began to day a practical demonstration of what might be expected if a hostile force landed on the southern coast of the British channel. The scene of this year's maneuvers Is the plain of Picardy, the old prov ince in the north of France, bordered on the north and northwest by "Tho Slew" which separates the Republic from Great Britain and forms tho department of Somme and part of Olse, Pas de Calais nnd Aisne. The SO.OOO troops engaged are divid ing into opposing armies, one desig nated as the blue and representing an invading force, being under the command of Gen. Picquart, former minister of war, and the other, the red, formed under the army of defense under command of Gen. Muneuer, Gen. Michel has supreme direction of the practice. REPEL INVASION The. operations opened at daylight. Gen. Picquart's men having effected, theoretically, a landing on French soil, advancing; from the Kiver Seine at Rouen. At the same time the red army con centrated near Amiens, An interesting feature of the tactics was the em ployment of the guns with which each army is equipped. Gen. Picquart, trained In infantry evolutions, scattered his cannon in support of the new open order forma tion of his infantry, while Gen. Mun euer, the artillerist, massed his bat teries. Gen. Michel has strictly forbidden any feats of prowess on the part ot the aeroplanes which might result In interference and collision and the work of the machines is restricted to a test of their capability as swift dispatch bearers and for reconnoiterin£ pur poses. The dirigible balloons participating are equipped with light wireless out fits and are in constant communica tion with the earth. In this way they perform the double mission of aerial scouting and transmitting instructions from the commanders to their officers. Major T. Bentley Mott, American military attache at Paris, is attached to the staff of Gen. Michel and Is watching the operations for the Unit ed States war department.

Sept. 12.—With the police still maintaining that Cnpt. T. D. Blom committed suicide and con tinuing to throw mystery about their evidence, a Jury <?f six men today be gan an Inquest into the unusual rase. Captain Blom died late Saturday aft ernoon and a post mortem examina tion made yesterday brought forth the fact that the gash on the dead man's throat had been produced by a razor, in a cut from right to left. Captain Blom was right-handed and would have had to hold the razor In a back-handed manner to have Inflicted the wound.

There was no trace of laudanum in the stomach. A new turn to the case was given today when the testimony developed that a man's screams were heard by persons living in two houses within a block of the scene of the supposed crime at an hour after the street cars had stopped running for the nicht. lURY SAYS SEA CAPTAIN ENDED HIS LIFE IN PARK TACOMA, Sept 12.—8y finding that Captain Torvold Blom of the fishing schooner Fortuna cut his own throat before his body was found under a tree in Wright park in th'ts city last Friday morning a coroner's jury today climaxed a mystery started by his rel atives and friends, who asserted a theory of foul play.

BULLION THIEVES BAFFLE OFFICERS Detectives Extend Their Search Through Alaska for Missing Box with $57,500 SIMILAR CRIME IS RECALLED 'Bobby' Miller, Once Known in Los Angeles, Involved in the Earlier Robbery SBATTLK, Sept. 12. —Detectives work ing: on the $57,500 express robbery are proceeding on the theory that the cold was stolen after the steamer carrying It left Fairbanks on August 20. Sus picion rests on four men, who are un der surveillance at Fairbanks but have not been arrested. [Associated Presal SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 12.—The mystery of the theft of $57,500 in gold bullion In transit on the steamship Humboldt from Fairbanks, Alaska, to Seattle, is almost as deop today as before. Indeed, the distance to be searched for the thieves has been en larged by the addition of the Yukon river between Fairbands and Dawson. First reports stated that the gold boxes containing $170,000 shipped by the Washington-Alaska bank of Fair banks to tho Dexter-Horton National bank of Seattle were opened by the custom officials at Dawson and the gold examined. This Is not true, for the Canadian officials merely looked at the express seals to see that they were Intact. HK.U.S INTACT; GOLD MISSING The history of the travels of the three boxes follows: The bank August 20 delivered the boxes made of 1 1-3-lnch boards nailed together and strapped with iron, to the Yukon Express company, whose agent placed wax seals over the heads of the screws with which the box lids were closed. The boxes were then placed on a Yukon steamer bound up the Yukon to Dawson, in the custody of the pur ser. When the steamer reached Dawson, which is in Canada, the cus toms officials made the usual exami nation of the seals and the Yukon Express company turned the boxes over to the Alaska-Pacific Express company. The boxes continued up the river to White Horse and then were transferred to a train on the White Pass railroad, which conveyed them to Skagway, Al aska, where they were taken Into the j purser's room. On the arrival of the Humboldt at Seattle the boxes were sent at once to the United States as say office where they remained in a vault twenty-four hours until repre sentatives of the Dexter-Horton bank went to the office to open them and check up the bars. The seals were found unbroken, but the first box con tained lead instead of gold. K\HIA DUI'J.ICATE CHIME The prevailing theory among ship ping men and Alaskans is that the robbery was committed on the Yukon steamer, for it seems to have been an exact counterpart of the Bobby Mil ler robbery in 1906. Bobby Miller, hav ing obtained a position as night watch man on a steamer plying on the Tan ana river, procured a quantity of lead shot, and one night opened a treasure box that contained $69,000 in gold bars, took out the bars, hid them In his stateroom, put lead in the box and got the bars ashore at Fairbanks and buried them. The storekeeper who sold Miller the shot betrayed him and he was arrest ed. On a promise that his punish ment would be only eighteen months imprisonment, Miller dug up, $50,000 of the gold, declaring that the other $19, --000 had been stolen from him. FOKMER I.OS ANGELES CLERK Miller served his term and was on the Yukon when last heard from. He is a Californian, aged about 30, and his earlier years worked as a clerk In San Francisco and Los Angeles de partment stores. Six years ago he Joined a stampede to the Tanana dig gings, which were then yielding pro digiously. Fortune did not smile, on Miller, however, and he was obliged to work as a restaurant waiter. He was boyish and refined in his appearance and his exploit In robbing the Tanana steamer amazed all who knew him. Miller was employed In a Portland haberdashery store early last summer. The suspected men are a clerk In the Washington-Alaska bank of Fairbanks, a relief of the purser of the steamer Tanana and two seamen. The use of a duplicate bank seal used by the rob bers gave the detectives the first clew. This, with evidence gathered against thr clerk, leads the agents to believe that an employe of the Tanana, who had acted as a relief for the purser, permitted the two miners to enter the private compartments in which the treasure was .stored where they pried off tho iron hand protecting the Reals, removed the end of the box, extracted the gold and substituted the lead In its place, The seal, wires and band were then replaced and the seal and wax of tho bank duplicated. Immediately aftor the boat landed at Tanana two minors left for the hills. They have not been seen since.
