LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 27, 1010
AVIATION CROWD
RECORD BREAKER
Attendance of 75.000 Largest
That Ever Has Been Pres
at Dominguez Field
Before the greatest crowd ever as
sembled in Southern California.—the
greatest ever assembled to see man at< ,
tempt the conquest of the Dir —which
a lair estimate places at i"5,000 persons—
a new king of the domain of the sky
was crowned at Domlnguez field yester
day afternoon. '
From a speck In the blue above them, j
75,000 persons watched a young South" !
em I'ullfornian glide easily to tin earth
before them; a young man Incased In
a suit of leather crawl stiffly from Ins
biplane; an official examine a small
brown box on the side of the craft; |
the world record Mag flutter In the ■
wind and then—riding to their feet as |
,i by magic—save Arch Hoxsey the
greatest ovation In the power of 75,000
persons to bestow.
After a wait of two hours and fifteen ,
minutes- a wait which was made I
racking by constant rumors of \
terrible accidents, of lack of fuel, of
frozen motors, of crumpled wings—
Hoxsey returned to the spot from
which hi had started, bringing with
him, in his little brown box. a record |
of the nmst remarkable achievement
ever accomplished in the air.
The crowd which had waited through
those two hQUI'S —in alternate hope and :
fear — welcomed him by paying the i
homage which was his duo. !
As Hoxsey's machine came to a final j
stop in front of the judges' stand three
men rushed to his side. Two grasped
his frozen hands ami assisted him from
the machine. The third grasped the
little brown box. The gaze of all cen
tered upon the third.
CIIKKIIS LIKE HOLT, OI TIUMIKK
AVas the record broken? Had the
lons wait been for nothing? [ad the
young Southern Callfornlan risked his
life in vain? Was the record for Ihe
altitude of tin world to return to Amor-
ii a or main in Europe? The time
seemed Interminable. Would the man's
eyes never leave the box?
As suddenly as ii had been lifted, th.->
brown box dropped back into place, A
snow white flag fluttered into the
breeze. The record had come home.
Like a roll of thunder, a, mighty
cheer went ip from the multitude.
Hats went in (he air. handkerchiefs
waved, men leaped up and down, wom
en laughed with tears running down
their cheeks. Again and again the
mighty cheer of the erov d rose, echo
ing down the long line of spectators.
iloxsoyl Hoxscy! Hoxsey!
Around him crowded the officials of
the meet—forgetting for the moment
their duties. He was hoisted to the
shoulders of commltteemen and car
ried to the judges' stand. Still the
crowd el-.rer.--d. He was carried from
on" end of the statxfto the other while
the spectators went wild with joy. The
greatest ovation ever »towed upon
a conquerer of the air was Koxsey's.
The young aviator had his troubles
a 7! he was paraC-d before his host of
admirers. Everyone was excited —al-
most insane with joy. One carrier
would start one way—the ot i!"!' in ' he
opposite direction. They ran, they
jumped with him. The first words
spoken by the aviator were pleading
to lie let down. He was cold—iie was
tired, yet the spectators would not let
him escape until they had shown their
admiration—and appreciation of his
wonderful flight, in the only way pos
sible for crowds.
lIOXSET HERO OF Till mil R
As soon as he could, Hoxsey left the
stand and returned to hi hangar. Even
then he was cheered. As he brought
bin automobile onto the course to tow
his aeroplane to its quarters he was
cheered again. The audience seemed
loath to let him £". Without doubt,
75. im0 persons could have given no
hi artier reception than that which they
gave to Hoxsey. Prom the mo
ment he alighted until the last person
had left the big grandstand at dark,
Hoxey and his wonderful work was the
topic of the moment. On the cars
on the return to 1.,0s Angeles, on the
streets of the city, everywhere, it was
Hoxsey and his wonderful flight.
The results Of the flight bulletined
in Los Angeles attracted much atten
tion. Small groups gathered to re
hearse the day's doings— to marvel j»t
the daring, the perseverance, the abil
ity of hoxsey.
As it: it had received some previous
notification of the wonder it tv a to
witness, the crowd at Domlnguez yes
terday nfternoon was by far the larg
est which has ever assembled to wit
ness mi aviation meet. The recent
meet at Belmont park was supposed
to have been the largest hitherto, Its
best duy's attendance was 26,0w) per
sons.
The crowd began to leave for tin
field early. At '.' o'clock the Pacific
Electric station was crowded to its
dooi.s with holiday pleasure-seekers
anxious to be off to the. meet, Hour
by hour the crowd increased. When the
first machine— Hoxsey's—came on the ;
course at 1 o'clock tne grandstand was
filled to overflowing nd still they were
coming.
As fast as one train load would leave
another was taken from the sidetracks
In the rear ni"-the station. Cars were
sent as rapidly as they could be se
cured. There weir not enough. The I
wildest dreams of the Pacific Electric
officials, the aviation committee and
everyone else had not reckoned on :
such a crowd an tiii.-.
rs>- 1 o'clock fifty thousand people
had been transported to thu field. The
Pacific Electric estimated that it had
carried 43,000 and th" Southern Pacific
GOOO by actual count.
ICvery box, every reserved scat and
every pc-neral admission scat was oc
cupied by 1' lock. Twenty thousand
persons were in the grand.st.inil-a
number which was a small percentage
tn the crowd "ii the outside. Alons
th« fence In both directions from the
grandstand stretched the long line of
spectators, eight and ten ■.'..■■.
circled half way around the course.
In the parking behind the grandstand
were hundreds of automobiles, Tlito
were other modes of transportation
there also. Here and there was a
family surrey. Here and there was a
smart turnout. I.a i, but no! least,
h<re aru! there was i nine] wagon,
filled with chairs and with a. few
scraps of luncheon loft around it.
And there was one crowd which was
not welcome. Along the county roud,
which marks the northern boundary
of Domlnguess field, the entire length
I of the course, were people—people Who
| would not come round to the gates
ami pay their admission but preferred
to stand in the weeds atul grass whore
It was all free.
The authorities attempted to persuade
tin-so people to come around and pay
thnir money, thereby assisting in a
charitable venture worthy of their sup
port find, at the same time, s< cinq all
that was to be on, They had little
success, however, and it was impos
sible to do anything other than at
tempting to persuade. Today canvas
will be stretched over th ■ fencing to I
liuei) bucU spectators away. 1

With daylight 5 'sterday those con

definite course of action.
For nearly two hours after their ar
rival 1 'hlof of 1 ill On How ay, I v
of Detecth ■ Flammer, Attorney Harl
[{ogefs anil several city detectives
made a personal and minute Inspection
jof the wrecked building before the

and the \york of repairing was begun.

expert and a member of the committee
ithai Investigated the Times disaster, |
nrrivi d at the Llewellyn plant and
joined in the conference that Chief
Galloway. I'aptaln Plammer, Earl
Rogers and officers and directors of ili^
Lli urilyn company .vere holding.
Is flrxt conference noth
ing official was given <>111. but It waa
learned that those present practically
mapped "in plans i" nd the
men responsible for wliat Is believed to
vc been nn explosion of dynamite or
guncotton, 11 is understood that sus
picion has already been directed to-
ward certain Individuals, and it was
decided at the conference yesterday
morning that these suspects should be
shadowed night mid day.
KM.III INQUIRY IS TI.ANM II
"It i* going to bo ii mo I difficult
matter to bring men In on suspicion
in such a case." said an officer of the
company attending the conference, "but
it has been decided that no man who
may have been connected with the
crime shall go unmatched. Just how
this shadowing Will be done and who
will do it is yet to be decided, but def
inite plans will be carried out through
out Ihe investigation.
"Every feature of the explosion was
gone Into in detail and it was the unan
imous lief of those at the conference
that the Llewellyn plant was damaged
03 the result of a premeditated use of j
dynamite, guncottor. or some other high
explosive. The way in which the dirt
in the hole In the ground against the
west end of the south wall was scat
tered, the finding of supposed particles
of guncotton In the hole and the effect
nf the concentrated blast as it tore
away the timbers Inside the building
leave absolutely no doubt as to the
cause ■'i the explosion."
The first conference las* 'l until near
ly noon. Shortly alter l o'clock a see.
o'nd conference was held in the north
part of the Llewellyn" plant, when fur
ther pin us were discussed. It was de
cided that the investigation for the
city should be left to Captain Flammer
.hi,! chief Galloway. Attorney Rogers
and tho Pinkertons will make private
Investigations,
CITY'S iv.ii:< in ACXIVK
Nearly every detective In the city bu
reau has been detailed to some part of
the investigation. Detectives Roberds,
Ritch, Ziegler, McCann and one or two
others whose names have not been an
nounced will work on the case ex
clusively at least for the next few days,
"So far," said Captain Flammer
yesterday afternoon, "there Is noth
ing definite to announce. Our men
have been ordered to run down every
possible clew and it Is possible that
shortly something of peal importance
may be learned."
Kvery fact that an bo learned In
connection with occurrences in the
Llewellyn yards Immediately before
and uft'er the explosion Sunday morn-
Ing is being Investigated. Each of the
three watchmen at the plant, as well
is watchmen employed In adjoining
foundries, were questioned yesterday
as to any suspicious happenings near
the time a the explosion.
It was reported at various times at
central station yesterday that sus
pects in 1 lie case had been arrested,
but each report proved false. When
James Carroll, a member of the In
dustrial Workers of the World, was
arrested by Detective Hiiwley on a
charge ol assaulting a waiter, Bert
Ewinp, In Kas( Second street, a great
crowd of Carroll's friends followed Mir;
to the police station. In a few minutes
it iv.i reported In the streets that
Carroll had been taken to headquar
ters its a suspected dynamiter and the
crowd that tried to pain entrance to
the station was so great that an of
ficer had to disperse it.
NO AIIRKSTS, SAYS II •.>!M!:u
Captain Flammer said that the ar
rest of Carroll had nothing to do with
the explosion at tho Llewellyn plant.
"If any arrests are mad In con
nection with the case," said Captain ;
Flammer. "I expect to bo notified at
once. So far there have been no ar
rests and I know of non that are to
bo made Immediately."
An unidentified person caller! the j
di ,-k sergeant at headquarters yester
day morning and reported that .several
| sticks of dynamite bad been found In
Rlyslan park. Officers were pent to I
Investigate and learned a short time
afterward that the dynamite belonged
:to a man employed to do blasting In
the park. According to an official re
p. it the use of dynamite in the park is
,i common o< euri i ••.
Those In charge of the Investigation
are spending: much time in trying to
lecato the three Husp'clous looking men
who were accosted by Night Watch- j
I man William Vino at the Lai Manu
facturing company last Saturday even
in!;'.
The polli i have a goo l description of >
one of the trio, who is said to have !
fired on Vina after all three had run
down the railroad tracks near the Lacy
: plant. The description* of the other
two men are 1.'.-s satisfactory.
"We do not know just what the ar
rest of any one of these three men may
result in." said one of the detectives
on the case, "but tiering from the story
told by Vine ihi '.- would make excel
lent subjects fur cro.-.s-quc-;tioning. |
Their actions on the night of the ex- ■
. plosion were certainly ■■'■' lout find I
they should be made to explain them
. Helves."
As nearly as Vine remembers one of
the three men was i Her than the other
two, who were considerably heiivier
than their tall companion. All were

CHRISTMAS RUSH OVER;
NO CONGESTION AT P. O.
The Christmas rush at the postoffice
is over. The great stacks of unemptied
sacks have vanished and nearly all the
presents from out-of-town friends and
of Lob Angeles citizens have been. sort
ed and delivered. That there has been
no congestion Is duo to the efficient
force of employes who have worked
night and day to ease the extra strain.
All day yesterday the extra carriers
went the rounds with the package mall.
The regular force will lie all.' to take
care of the rest of the deliveries. Clerks
on the Incoming trains are able to sort
all Los Angeles mail while the delivery
tables are kept, clean with the speed
Of the clerks in the local postoffice.
Although the amount of mall re
ceived in Lob Angeles this year is about
30 per cent greater than was the
amount last year, the superior facili
ties of the new 'postofflce enabled the
force to take care of the rush with dis
patch.
The. corridors of 111• • main postoffl'
were crowded yesterday morning, es
i.. ally about noon, while a lino "i
considerable length was formed before
the general delivery windows on several
occasions.

FIGHT EXPECTED OVER
CHARTER AMENDMENTS
Opposition to Adoption of Meas
ures Anticipated from
the 'Solid Three'
A struggle is expected In the etty
council (ins morning when the i liai tei
amendments axe pn nented for :\<\<<v
tlon. The revision commission nas
promised t.> have them reudy tor ac
tion by the council at Its regular meet-
Ing today and whllH there Is n<> aouot
thu majority of the council will ap
prove them, there Is also no qoudc
that at least three members will op
pose them.
These three are Washburn, Stewart
and Gregory, who have como to bu
called the "nollu three 1' of the council.
They bellevo that sufficient considera
tion has not ml- 1 given to the amend
ments and Wnshtourn and Stewart, es
pecially, believe »M ■ amendments
should not bo submitted for two years.
II would then be time, they argue, to
cover the necessary matters "i 1 the dis
tribution of water and power, which
is the principal reason for making the
amendments.
During the last few sessions of the
iMiini ii when Hk 1 amendments have
been under consideration, Washburn,
Stewart and Gregory have steadfastly
refuHed t.< \.>t.' for or against any pro
posed change. Washburn stated that
lie could not vote tor the submission
< r the nmendmejts In their present
form and that lie would consider it liin
duty to work ngalnst some of them at
the I'.'il* when thoy air I übmltt d.
Stewnrt's opinion of the amendments
was expressed when the one limiting
tin 1 holghi of buildings was under dis
cussion and one of I Mr* councilmen ob
jected that It had not boon given suf
ficient consideration.
■| think tins amendment lias neon
as Intelligently considered as any of
them," said .Mr. Stewart.
But notwithstanding Hi ■ position of
those three councilman tho other six
are In favor of them anfl believe the
day and night sessions of tho council
for the last ton days, during which
tho amendments have been taken u|>
one by om . lias been productive of in
