ST. LOUIS, Oct. 22.— Scattered
through the state of Ohio, with one;
or two balloons trailing in the vidn-
Vity of the great lakes, and another
last heard from in Chatham, Ont, all
nine of the big balloons participating
In the second international aeronautic
cup races were still in the air tonight. ;
Throughout the afternoon reports of
balloons at . various points in Ohio
have been coming in, while Detroit
first sent word of the contestant
which afterward passed over the
Canadian border and was last seen at
The identity of only four of the
balloons has been proved. McCoy and
Chandler first reported their presence]
at Marion, Ohio. Their last message j
was to the effect that : :-the*<Atrierica]
would descend on the borders of Lake
Erie, probably; in- the .vicinity of
The German balloon Pommern, No. 1
In tbe race, passed over Cleveland late
this afternoon, and its. pilot, Erbslosh,
<3ropped a liotft saying, "Open ' water
. ahead. All welt." The -Pommern had
been reported earlier vi the'day'in' the
interior of Ohio. \u25a0 f
A note dropped during: the "morning j
6t New AuguFta. Ind.. near fndianapo- '
11*. conveyed the information' that the
passing: -.vas the L.ot,Us^ll, .the f
dhly* English! entrant in -Die race. * j
The French -balloon - IMe de France i
\u25a0dropped a messapp for the Associated
Press at Columbus, O.
There has been much speculation
liere as to the identity of the balloon
i\u25a0- . , •
Tvh'rt passed over into Canada with
apparently a wide !ca *. in the big race.
The balloon is reported to have flown ;
two American flag's; and this fact is j
nccepterj by some as showing that the |
balloon is the United States, with Ma-!
Jo.r Henry B. Hersry of the United
,6tates weather bureau as pilot. The
.United States was -the winner of the
International race of 1906. All of the
contestants were decorated with flags j
And buiitingr and there is a chance that j
the theory of the leader being the
United J?£atcs % ' ! 'may .be ' upset. The
Aero club officers are inclined to be-
Hrve. however. " tliat there can be no
mistake as to the.identityof the leader
«nd are freely predicting that Major
Hersey will be the winner of the con
, test. The balloon reported at Detroit
»nd later at -Chatham evidently had
' followed the course which Major Her
eey forecasted he would take.
There seems no doubt that the record :
made in the race. from P.aris last year!
402 rnilcs. will be exceeded by practi- \u25a0<
cally every balloon In the present race. '
JCearly all of the balloons reported in
c.io have covered n»ore than that dis- ;
tance, while those on the great lakes
'are more than 100 miles ahead of the |
record. \u25a0
All of the balloons have gone to the j
«ast and northeast. One -.vagrant • car
was reported at 7:45 p. m. tonight a* .
passing Waukogan, 111., just north of
Chicago, od tjje edge of I>ake Michigan. '
The balloon America reported to thej,
Associated Prees that it had been ! i
\u25a0within tight of. three other balloons.:
during moEt of its journey. One of \
them undoubte»3ly was the English ba!- \
loon I>otus II and another the Isle de :
France. The rai-e between the four is
being watched with' great interest.

Trouble in Wall Street Will Not
Alter Policy, Says President Roosevelt
HERE has been trouble in the stock-market in the high
•' \u25a0* financial world during the past few months. The state
ment frequently has becn^made that the policies for ifkick I
stand, legislative and executive, arc responsible for that trouble.
Now, these policies of .mine can be summed up in one brief sen
tence. They represent the effort to punish successful dishonesty. I
doubt if these policies have had any material effect in bringing
about the present trouble, but if they have it will not alter in
the slightest degree my determination that for the remaining 1 6
months of my term these policies shall be persevered xn."-^
President Roosevelt.
