declared Wilbur Wright who was in
Now York today to attend a court I
hearing in tho Wright injunction suit
This Ig because of tho prevailing
winds In the regions through or over
which the contest will tako place
ho continued Reports for a number
of years show that the prevailing
winds In the states of Illinois Indi
ana Ohio and western New York are
from tho west not only In the summer
nnd autumn months hut most of the
year The preponderance IB greatly
in favor of westerly as against east
erly winds North and south winds
are seldom encountered
Tho records show that thu aver
age spoed of these winds at a height
of about 150 feet Is 15 miles an
hour Nearer the ground the speed j
is loss while at a height of from 1000
to 1500 It may blow along from tho i
west at about fifty or sixty miles an J
Now in a long race like those
proposed this factor of wind will cut
a big difference Since the normal
speed of an average heavferthanalr
machine Is forty miles an hour If the I
race Is run from west to oast the
machines will be helped along and i
their normal speed Increased by this

other hand the contestants start In

competing aeroplanes will be but 25

Federal Judge Refuses
to Interfere in
Bribery Case
Chicago June Representative
Lee ONeil Browne Democratic lead
er accused of bribing fellow legis
lators in the election of United States
Senator Lorlmer Republican was to
day refused freedom on a stale writ
of habeas corpus Judge Klckham
Scanlan denied a plea thht only a fed
oral tribunal has power to try such a
case I
Judge Scaulan devoted the greater I
part of his decision to n consideration
of the arguments of the defense that
a joint assembly of the legislature to
elect n United States senator was tho
creation of the federal government
and when a member of the legislature
entered that joint assembly he ceased
to be a state legislator or official and
became for the purpose of the Joint
assembly a federal oulclal and agent 1
The defense then reached the conclu
sion that a person charged with brib I
ing a legislator to vote for a person r
for senator would not be amenable to
slate laws I
Judgo Scanlan refuted practically
every argument of the defense by cit I I
ing the United States constitution and
several statutes passed by congress In i
1866 bearing on the election of United I
States senators
Judge Scanlan further staled that
sine the foundation of the govern 1
ment congress had never passed a
law making it a crime or misde
meanor for a state legislator to accopt
a bribe for his vote for United States
senator Neither had congress made
any effort to regulate in any way the
conduct of a Join assembly while elect I
ing a United States senator according
to the decision
While Mr Hanecy was arguing on I
his pica for an appeal of Judge Scin
lans decision Judge McSurcly Issued I
a capias for Browne
At 1015 Slates Attorney Wayman I
informed Judge McSuroly that Browne
was In ho custody of the sheriff and I
was still before Judge Scanlan Judge
McSuroly then directed that service
on the capias bo delayed but later or

but It did not complete the program

The Address
An American who In response to
such an invitation as I have received
speaks in this university of ancient
renown cannot but feel with peculiar
vMlness the Interest and charm of
his surroundings fraught as they are
with a thousand associations Your
great universities and ill the memo
ries that make thorn great arc living
realities In the minds of scores of I
thousands of men who have never
seen them and who dwell In other
lands Moreover these associations
are no stronger in the men of English
stock than In those that nro not My
people have been for eight generations
In America but In one thing I am
like the Americans of tomorrow
rather than like many of tho Ameri
cans of today for I have in my veins
the blood of men who came from
many different European races The
ethnic makeup of our people is slow
ly changing so that constantly the
race tends to become more and more
akin to that of those Americans who
like myself are of the old stock but
not mainly of English stock Yet I i
that time by mutual
think that as goes I
respect understanding and sympathy
among the Englishspeaking peoples
grow greater and not less Any of
my ancestors Hollander or Huguenot
Scotchman or Irishman who had
come to Oxford in the specious days
of great Elizabeth would have felt
far more alien than I their descend
ant now feel Common hcirship in
the things of the spirit makes a closer
bond than common holrshlp In the t
things of the body
More than ever before In the I
worlds history we of today sock to
penetrate the causes of tho mysteries
that surround not only mankind but
all life both In the present and In the
past We search we peer we see
things dimly here and there we got a
ray of clear vision as wo look before
and after Ve stud the tremendous
procession of the ages from tho Im
memorial past when in cramp elf and
caurlan forms the creative forces
swathed their loomuch power
down to tho yesterday a few score
thousand years distant only when tho
history of man became the oerwhelm
Ins fact in the history of life on this
planet nnd studying wo see strange
analogies In tho phenomena of limo
and death of birth growth and
change between those physical groups I
of animal life which we designate as
species forms races and the highly
complex and composite entities which
rise before our minds when we speak
of nations and civilizations
It Is this study which has given sci I
ence Its present day prominence In is
the world of Intollect doubtless tho I
moat marked features In the history I
of the past century have been the cxi I
traordlnary advances In scientific I
knowledge and Investigation and In
tho position held by tho men of act I
once with reference to thoso en I
gaged In other pursuits t mw
am not now speaking of ap
plied lenceof the science for in
stance which having revolutionized
transportation on the earth and water t
Is now on tho brink of carrying it into 1
the air of tho science that finds Its
expression In such extraordinary
achievements as the telephone and
the telegraph of the sciences which
have so accelerated till velocity of
movement In social and industrial con
ditions for the changes In the nm
chanical appliances of ordinary life
during the last three generations have
been greater than in all the preceding
generations since history dawned I
speak of the science which has no
more direct bearing upon the affairs
of our every day life than literature
or music painting or sculpture poet
ry or history A hundred years ago
the ordinary man of cultivation hart
to know something of these last sub
jects hut the probabilities wero I
rather against his having any but the
most superficial scientific knowledge
At present all this has changed
thanks to tho Interest taken In scientific I
tiDe discoveries the large circulation
of scientific books and the rapidity
with which Ideas originating among
students of the most advanced and
abstruse scloncos become at least par
tially domiciled In the public mind
Another feature of the change of
the growth In the position of science
In the eyes of every one and of the
greatly increased respect naturally re
sulting for scientific methods has
been a certain tendency among scien
tific students to encroach on other
fields This is particularly true of the
field of historical study Not only
I have scientific mon Insisted upon them
necessity of considering the history of
nmn esoeclallv In its early stages In
connection with what biology shows
ui lie the history of life but further
more there has arisen a demand fhiit
history itself shall bo treated as a
science Both positions are in their
essence right but as regards each
position the more arrogant among tho
Invaders of the new realm of knowl
edge tako an attitude to which it is
not necessary to assent As regards
the latter of the two positions that
which would treat History henceforth
merely as one branch of scientific
study we must of course agree that
accuracy In recording facts and appro
elation of their relative worth and in
terrelationship are just as necessary
in historical study as in any other
kind of study Tho fact that a book
though Interesting Is untrue of
course removes it at once from the
category of history howevor inch it
may stlll deserve to retain a place In
the always desirable group of volumes
which deal with entertaining tlcUon
But the converse also holds at least
to the extent of permitting us to insist
upon what would scorn to be the ele
mentary fact that a hook which Ig
written to be read should be readable
This rather < obvious truth seems to
