Xt dav i- for what it will be the beyond a.-eurate forecast. Brand New Machine. The last thing to agitate the minds of the high livers yesterday was what to nan.e the now machine that Mars is going to soar in. It n.-ed to be the fad. .sai.I Mrs. Mars, to christen aero planes before they took their maiden flights, but this custom is going oat of vogue now in the States. Jt was sug gested, however, that the fad hadn't hit here yet and it might be just as well to introduce it. So the bird man's better half said sh? would perform the ceremony with the bottle of sparkling effervesenee. Various Hawaiian names were mentioned and it was proposed to throw the burden of choosing an ap propriate name upon the public. the 'Skylarks' I ever rode." said Mars, were smashed up. but then they all go that route any way, so I guess it doesn't matter.

' Suggestions are now in order. A Stout Craft. Mr. anil Mrs. Mars, Mrs. Schriver, Capt. Thomas Baldwin, Whipple Hall. Ed. Lewis and some newspaper men went out to Moanalua Field yesterday afternoon to see what progress was be ing made with the biplane. After look ing it over Baldwin remarked, "That's the most substantial machine I ever saw put together," and here he called attention to how the framework was con nected. The frame is made of bamboo poles, joined by steel sockets, instead of be ing bolted together. The engine was set in place and the propeller ad justed to it. This is carved out of pine and shaved down so thin that it doesn't look as though it could churn the air with force enough to drive the machine along at a rate of forty-five miles an hour, but Baldwin said, "You wait until Saturday, and you'll see it do it." Mars climbed upon his perch to see if all the controllers were adjusted to suit him. There are two foot levers in front to work the motor and switch. The wheel, which is , within easy reach from the seat, works the rudder in the rear by turning and the forward plane can be tilted up or down to rise or dip by simply working the wheel j forward or backward. Then the alerons! which balance the biplane are shifted j by the sole movement of the aviator's' body. To fly in this machine the bird) man is kept busy all over. ' The vulcanized silk wings look just! like Him rubber sheeting that would! rip like tissue paper, but the three j mechanics walked around on theml while they were adjusting the two hundred and thirty pound motor back of the seat with heavy shoos on yes terday, and never left a footprint. Lieutenant Kilgore and Captain Low of the Marines were on the scene to absorb some of the mysteries of avia tion and even Captain Notley of the Japanese baseball team of the Oahu accomplished the then niarveloe feat at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 39 seconds. ! On October 23 of this year Maurice t Tabuteau covered a distance of 29 j miles in continuous flight in a Farman! biplane. This feat, however, has beenj surpassed carrying a passenger. On j the seventeenth and the eighteenth of j the same mouth Henry Wynmalen, the' Dutch aviator, flew from Paris to Brussels and back with a passenger. The distance is about 330 miles and the flight was made in fifteen hours, thirty-eight minutes and twenty-eight , seconds. The aviator who accomplished this feat received a prize of .33,000 from the municipal council of Paris. In March. 1903, Leon Delagrange took the first passenger up in a biplane. Henry Farman accompanied the avia-j tor for a four hundred foot flight which was accomplished in three sec ouds. The first woman to fly was Mile. Therese Pietier. She went up with De lagrange at Turin, Italy, on July b,; HVis, and then flew a distance ot hve hundred feet. On April 30 of this year Roger Sum ner took up the record number of pas sengers Three men and one woman accompanied him on high near Mour melon, France. The combined weight of this human freight was just forty pounds less than the weight of the bi plane, and the party stayed up five minutes. Lieutenant Fequant made the )est speed record for long distance flight with passengers He took two men along and flew from Chalons to Vin cennes. a distance of one hundred and five miles and a half in two hours and a half. Grahame-Whito holds the sustained speed record of sixty-two and one-tenth miles in sixty-one minutes, four and three one-hundredth seconds. This was when he won the Gordou-Benuett cup. His average speed was sixty and eight one-hundredths miles an hour. Aviator Hamilton has beaten this speed over a four mile course.

Mars repeated a suggestion that the girl who thought of the prettiest name for the Deitz Schriver biplane gets a free ride in the air with him, whereat Mrs. Mars said. "No you don't. You won't let me go skylarking and you can't take any other ladies with you." "That settles it." was the bird man's refrain. "Vou see who is mis tress of aviation." Mars, however.

I talked a good deal about wanting to learn how to flV my self, but when Mr. Mars realised that I really meant it he said: 'Yon dismiss that idea from your mind.
