For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation which Thou haBt pre pared before the face of all people. St. Luke. Today men in the centers of business are. sitting down with pencil and paper and figuring what Dolliver's death will mean in the next sen atewhat it will mean to Big Business. They speak of it in a casual way as one would talk of the wheat crop in the Dakotas and the boll weevil in the south. There Is a little shamefaced smile of satisfaction on the face of some of these men, an ill-concealed smile of pleasure half-covered with the per functory and outward show accorded to the dead. What does it mean to you this death of Dolliver the Insurgent? It means one man less in the Senate to carry on your fight. It means a harder struggle for those who are left. ' And it brings up the awful odds that are against you and the men who fight for you. ' It has not been a week 6lnce LaFollette of Wisconsin, lay at the point of death. . Cummins. of Iowa is still a sick man. ' There is no doubt that Dolliver would be alive today if he had not plunged into your fight. For you must understand the never-ending struggle that these men go through. The unceasing battle. The mental strain, the anxiety at tacked on all sides and repulsing attack by counter attack. That is the pace that kills. Think! It would be easy enough for those men to have no stain of dishonesty cast on them and live a life of ease in the capital of this country, as many do, caring little for the legislation affecting a nation passing un derneath their listless and smiling attention. It is so easy to let things slide. Long life and a happy one a distinguished name and pleasure and then to find a bank account mysteriously growing without your knowl edge because you did nothing. To find Investments always turning out w,th a fortunate hundred fold equally mysterious! That is the other side of the picture. And that, you know, is not the story of - the insurgents. Dolliver died fighting for you. He has been expected in Indiana and scheduled .to go on the firing line and he had almost started when he was struck down. Dolliver would be alive today if he had not taken up your fight on the tariff all the pure food, the railroad and employer's liability legis lation. The Insurgents are all marked men. To understand the mental strain these men go through is to wonder why they do not give way to hysteria, to nervous prostration. To know this is to know why Cummins had to be forced by his physi cians to leave the Senate at the height of the fight on the railroad rate bill which the Insurgents altered and fought through for the benefit of the people. To know this is to know why even Beveridge's giant strength gives way to the terrible strain of the moBt strenuous campaigning this state baa ever seen ( All the odds of the old time politics are against him To know this is to know why Dolliver is dead on the forefront of the battle between the Many and the Few. That Is what this should mean to you. Every man of the Insurgents in the Senate is not only willing, but la giving up his life for you. Talk of selfishness and hypocrisy does the mealy mouthed and the buttered . word spineless one break down and die? He only becomes hys terical and suffers from collapse when they find the goods on him and he is In danger of the state's prison and public disgrace. In this fight to put down the mighty from their seat and to give the every day man a square deal some men must die and all those who fight for them must suffer. Where is the wrath of the people? It is in your hearts as surely as it was in those men who marched out to save the nation in sixty-one singing that grewsome, ghastly Bat tle Hymn of the Republic,' - - f "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!" John Brown of Osawatomie. Dolliver of Iowa. When a Crusader died fighting for the faith they hung his helmet and his shield In the chapels along the roadside. And they buried him with his face turned toward Jerusalem, his armor on and his good sword still In his chilled bands. Let us "Scatter the proud in the imagination of their hearts" let us "show the strength with our arms." The cause of the people has lost a leader. It is more work for us. For on the shield of Dolliver the Insurgent was written: Veritas Vos Liberabit. "Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free." v This Is My 58th Birthday REAR ADMIRAL. EGERTON.

A notable page in the history of man's conquest of the air will be written during the week of October 22 to 30, when the great international aviation meet will be held at the Belmont Park race courst on Long Island. Since the Wrights made their first J public flights a little more than two year ago, the science of aviation has progressed with leaps and bounds. Meets have been held in the leading countries in the world, and record af ter record has been broken by daring bird men, heretofore unheard of. The forthcoming -meet however, promises to eclipse any that have been previously held, not only in the else of the purses, but in the notable gathering of aviators. The will be present from all sections of Europe and America such daredevils as Le- Blanc, Grahame-White, Brookins, Hamilton and Curtiss and new rec ords are expected to be established in almost every event. The main Interest of course cen ters in the contest for the internation al trophy for the world's speed cham pionship. This was captured by Glenn Curtiss at the first international aviation meet held at Rheims last year, and every effort will be made to take the cup back to Europe. Aside from this prizes aggregating $55,660, and the promise of a division among the aviators of 70 per cent of all profits over $100,000, and 40 per cent of all 'sums beyond that amount, will furnish'an incentive for the' con testants. Three countries England, America and France will compete for the in-1 ternational speed trophy. . Each coun try will be represented by three avia tors. The official" team that the Aero club de France is sending over is made up of Alfred LeBlanc, Hubert Latham and M. Thomas. LeBlanc will fly with the latest "Cross Channel" type of Bleriot monoplane, with at least 10Q horsepower, which he used in the great cross country race. Latham, the graceful star of the "bat-like" An toinette monoplane, and Thomas, who uses the same machine, will also be equipped with 80 to 100 horsepower, making the French entry for the aro phy a high speed monoplane team. Leon Morane, holder of the world's record of 2 minuteB and 51 seconds over a course of five kilometers, a sustained speed of 66.18 miles an hour which he created last July at Rheims will drive the, highest powered and shortest winged, Bleriot. He is re garded as the most dangerous com petitor for the speed trophy. Count de Lesseps, Emilie Aubrun and M. Simon, the French entrants for other prizes, will use both Farman biplanes and Bleriot monoplanes. The record for height, 8,409 feet, without doubt will be exceeded by either Morane, Walter Brookins. the Wrights high flyer, or by Henry Weymann, . the American whose stunts Jiave set Europe talking. The incentive of competition will probably lead to the winning of a special prize of $5,000 for the aviator who reaches 10,000 feet. The team of the Royal Aero club of the United Kingdom is led by the dare devil, Claude Graham-White, whose recent feats at the Boston tournament gave him a national introduction. Oth er members of the British team are Alec Ogilvie and Jamea Radley. two flyers who have recently soared into prominence. . . , . . f Austria sends over to 'compete for other events than the speed trophy, the two most skillful of Austrian avia tors, Karl Illner and Adolph Warchol owski. both of whom have made won derful flights over Vienna and other cities with the Etrich machine. The Austrian nobleman. Baron Economo, and Count Kolowrat will compete with Farman biplanes. Italy will be represented by A. Cattaneo. one of the most noted flyers. These foreign "cracks" must defeat such remarkable airmen as Glenn H. Curtiss, Charles K. Hamilton, Wal ter. Brookins, John B. Moissant, J. Armstrong Drexel and others, who use the fastest -types of both American bi planes and French monoplanes. In daring and resourcefulness, the foreign aviators will have no advan tage over these flyers. For months past the whole energy of the Wrights' laboratory at Dayton. O, and that of the History of A 9 I r " I Va -rff 1 Three prominent contenders for the International speed . trophy and a photograph of the prize at present held by Glenn H. Curtiss. At the top on the right is Graham White, the daring English aviator, and on the left is Glenn H. Curtiss. Hubert Latham, the most prominent member of the French team is shown below. Curtiss at Hammondsport, N. Y., has been centered in producing machines and motors designed to keep the speed trophy on this side. Those who axe closest to these constructors, have confidently predicted that the real surprise at the tournament will be shown by a remarkable advance in American biplanes. The Wrights preparations for com peting for the trophy, have been most carefuly guarded, but it is definitely known that within the past two months, they have been working se cretly upon a new model biplane which it is expected will astonish the world. Trials made at their Dayton, Ohio, plant with an aeroplane whose lifting surface or wings, were cut to a mini mum nearly resulted in a serious ac cident to Orville Wright. The ma chine which Is driven by a 120 horse power motor developed such speed that it got completely away from Or ville and crashed into a fence.: It has been repaired, however, and subse quent experiments show that it can be depended upon to show phenomen al speed. All of the events will be flown under the rules of the International Aeron autic Federation, made up of one aero club from each country; all other clubs being affiliated with them. The federated clubs include the Aero club of America, New York; the Aero Club de France, Paris; the Royal Aero club of the United Kingdom, London; the Deutscher Luftschiffer Verband, Berlin; the Austrian Aero club, Vienna, the Societa Aeronuatica Italiana. Rome, and others. The con gress of this body meets annually to arbitrate disputes and promulgate such rules as govern sportsmanlike use of aeroplanes, dirigibles and bal loons. Only members of the teams selected by the leading aero clubs of the feder ation can compete for the internation al speed trophy, founded in December, 1906. by Mr. James Gordon Bennett. Under its- terms, the distance cover ed is each year increased, to meet the progress of aviation. In 1909 at Rheims, Glenn H. Curtiss won "the cup by flying 12.4 miles in 15 minutes and 50 3-5 seconds; the second place be ing taken by Louis Bleriot, hero of the first flight across the English channel. - This year the advantage is with the American spectator, as the distance to be covered is 62.1 miles, which re quires each aviator to cover twenty laps on the three mile course. This makes the contest practically a cross country flight that is all the time in sight of the stands. At Rheims. the distance was so short that the race was over almost before the crowd had settled down to enjoy It. The American team to defend the trophy will be named by the Aero club of America from among the thwo or three fastest men in an elimination series on October 26. Iv will be one of the most exciting days of the tour nament. Glenn H. Curtiss, the hold er of the trophy, has been incited by viation i i I the Aero club to become one of the defenders, without qualifying, an honor he will probably accept. Morane, Brookins, Weyman and probably other aviators will compete for the grand altitude prize of $2,000 and $1,000. This is only of the most importance during the tournament from the constructors point of view because of the military demands of various governments for a machine that can fly at great height. If the winner surpasses 8,409 feet, an addi tional $1,000 will be added to the prize. 'The same aviator may also win the special prize of $5,000 for an altitude of 10,000 feet, which is 3.000 feet higher than Chavez rose in cross ing the Simplon Pass. One of the most exciting features of the tournament will be a real race in the air, over a straightaway of 3,280 feet The machines will be lined up at the starting point, and at a signal all motors will be put in motion. At another signal they will leave the line together, crossing the finish in full flight. The prizes are $500, $250 and $100. If the number of machines en tered exceed the width of the course, a series of elimiinations will deter mine this event. Any American aviator may compete for- the Micholin trophy, valued at $4,000. This is for the longest flight in a closed circuit without touching the ground. To win the trophy the aviator muBt do better than 244.04 miles, which were covered by Jan OlisBalegers, in 5 hours, 3 minutes and 5 seconds at Rheims. The aviator who carries a passen ger 21 years of age and weighing at least 125 pounds, on a cross country flight from the starting point around a mark outside the course, and re turns in. the best time, will receive $2,000; if two machines cover the course in the same time, the machine carrying the greatest live weight will be the victor. Prizes have been of fered for a cross country flight from the starting point around an outside. mark and return. 1 Aviators who transport two passen-1 gers besides themselves, around, thex 2t6 Mlometer course, will receive! $1,000, $400 and $300; if two mi-1 chines carry the same weight, the first prize will be awarded to the one mak ing the best time. To stimulate constant efforts dur ing the tournament, prizes have been offered for total compilations of var ious kinds of flight. For instance, aviators who remain longest in the air during the tournament will be awarded $3,000, $1,500 and $500. The same plan will be followed in giving three prizes of $1,500, $1,000 and $500 for covering the greatest distance during the tournament. The three aviators who during the day, remain longest In the air, will receive $500, $250 and $100. Those who cover the greatest distance hourly will be given $250, $100 and $50.

THE BOOZE FIGHTER Watch him There he goes, clothes shiny at tha seams, uucleaned hat and shoes, sloucby, furtive. He slips into the side door of the aaloon. What happens there? You can fancy. The barkeeper kuowa him. He pushes a bottle of "all ports" cheap whisky over the counter. With trembling hand the booze fighter pours out "three fin-' gers." It goes down hard. lie tries a time or two to lift it, his stomach protest-? ing, and finally takes it in both hands. Once down there is a long convulsive shudder, and he gaspa for a very little water for a "chaser." Inside of three minutes be is out of the saloon. . . Looking about him, he shuffles down -the street, his hat slouched over his face, his coat tightly buttoned and his arms close to his side as if in depreca tion of the world until the "bracer," having given the desired shock to bis heart muscles, sends out the poisoned blood to the extremities. Then he straightens up. He is another man now. Unbuttoning bis coat, he puts his hat on the back of bis bead, bis thumbs , into his vest and smiles. Life Is good again. , And the booze fighter begins to dream bis dreams of reform, of ' domestic happiness, of business pros- ' perity; of peace and plenty.. Bgt His business Is gone. His friends are gone. His vitality Is gone. The whisky that is in him gives him -a brief, false sense of strength, and he mumbles , his ; protestations about "bracing up" and being a man. This ' until the force of the drink Is spent. What is the matter? The man is poisoned! ; If the modern laboratory reveals anything for sure it revests the fact that in whatever shape, always and everywhere, alcohol is a poison. It does not, cannot produce strengtk of body or mind only apparent, seenv ," ing strength. And its reactions aro deadly. ; . , The man is poisoned. Under the spe cious plea of being able to-drink-or-let- it-alone he has deliberately, systemat ically, poisoned himself. And each continued dose of poison gives cumu-' lative force. "I'll take the cure." Poor sodden brnln that is its last ; report. But suppose the alcohol poison really is eliminated from the blood? Suppose the awful craving has been taken temporarily awn? Only the shell of body and soul is left and -then What of the vitiated will power? And who will give bact youth, rltaU Ity, friends, business ability?
