Miss Quimby's Passenger, W.
A. P. Willard, Was Also
Killed at Boston.
(National News Association)
BOSTON, Mass., July 2. Miss Har
riet Quimby, of New York, the first
woman to win an aviator's license in
America, and the first woman to cross
the English Channel in an aeroplane,
was instantly killed with her passen
ger, W. A. P. Willard, manager of the
Boston aviation meet, at Atlantic,
Mass., last night, when her Bleriot
monoplane fell into Dorchester Bay
from a height of 1,000 feet.
The accident happened when Miss
Quimby and Willard were returning
from a trip over Boston Harbor to
Boston Light, a distance of twenty
miles. The flight was made in twenty
minutes. The Bleriot, one of the latest
models of military monoplanes, cir
cled the aviation field and soared out
over the Savin Hill Yacht Club, just
outside the aviation grounds.
Heading back into the eight-mile
gusty wind. Miss Quimby started to
volplane. The angle was too sharp, and
one of the gusts caught the tail of the
monoplane, throwing the machine up
Both Thrown Out.
For an instant it poised there. Then,
sharply outlined against the setting
sun, Willard was thrown clear of the
chassis, followed almost immediately
by Miss Quimby. Hurdling over and
over, the two figures shot downward,
striking the water about twenty feet
They splashed out of sight a second
before the monoplane plunged down
fifteen feet away.
It was low tide and the water was
only five feet deep. Men from the
yacht club were on the spot quickly
and, leaping overboard, dragged the
bodies out of the mud, into which they
had sunk deeply. Death probably was
Both bodies were badly crushed.
Several of Miss Quimby's bones were
broken and there were many large
bruises. Willard, who Weighed 190
pounds, hit the water face forst and
over one eye there was a gash from
which the blood was flowing. . He, too,
sustained several fractures and bruis
es. The clothing of both flyers was
torn and the bodies 'were so covered
with mud that it was several minutes
before the doctors and nurses could
determine the full extent of their injur
ies. Falters High in Air.
When the victims were brought
ashore in motor boats the bodies were
laid on the ground on the edge of the
aviation field. The crowd, which had
been, witnessing the flights, rushed
over, but a troop of state cavalry held
the people back while Dr. George
Sheahan, the field surgeon, with his
staff and a nurse, made hasty exami
nations. In a few moments ambulances arriv
ed and the victims were taken to the

the fall was Miss Blanche Stuart Scott,

had watched Miss Quimby's splendid
flight and was nearby when the gust

the lone aviatress, but when Miss
Quimby's body was brought ashore,
all eyes were directed aloft and Miss
Scott was seen making sweeping cir
cles over the field at a height of about
500 feet. Twice she started to descend
but each time she was seen to falter.
In another moment, summoning all her
nerve, she turned the nose of her ma
chine downward and landed safely, col
lapsing in her seat before any one
could reach her.

who were both witnesses of the acci

ADJOURN HORSE CASE
IN CIRCUIT COURT
The case of Elmer Little versus
George Sowers ,an action to recover
money paid for two horses, which was
opened in the Wayne circuit court yes
terday morning adjourned today until
tomorrow morning. Considerable inter

able outcome of the case and a large
number of residents of Centerville are
attending the case.
THIS IS FIRST ONE
The respective merits of Jim Flynn
and Jack Johnson proved the cause of
a neat preliminary to the big battle of
Thursday. Two men had a fistic argu
ment between Sixth and Seventh
streets on Main street this noon, and
escaped fro mthe police after beating
each other up. "I'll get you yet" the
defeated Johnson supporter called out
as he wiped his bloody nose and es
caped down an alley.
PUTS HUSBAND OUT
WITH STOUT CLUB
With "two-bits" and two dice in a
pocketbook, which she attempted to
"discard" while the patrolman was
not looking, Maggie Ralston, negress,
a police character, was arrested about
S o'clock last evening at Fourteenth
and North H street, after she had just
finished knocking her husband com
pletely out of the ring hat and all.
Maggie was escorted to the police
statipn where she was slated for as
sault and battery. In police court this
morning she pleaded not guilty to the
charge, saying she struck her husband
in self defense.
The defendant declared that her hus
band is continually "running after
her" and that he called her to Math
er's coal yards, where" he is employed,
yesterday afternoon. She complied
with his request. She stepped into the
yards and said "Hello." Ralston didn't
like the tone of her voice and, accord
ing to the defendant made her take
the count. But she was up again as
soon as the echo of "ten" had iied
and grabbing a club gave Ralston an
opportunity of seeing stars shine in
broad daylight. He is in bed today.
"Twenty-five and costs and twenty
days," was the mayor's verdict.
"Not fair," the defendant murmur
ed. "Fifty and costs and thirty days,"
was the second sentence of the mayor,
resenting the insinuation of the de
fendant. Mrs. Ralston opened her mouth, as
if to protest.

on Yettagotte's person at the time he

Yesterday afternoon, shortly after
2 o'clock, Yettagotte was seen running
south on North Seventh street and Jim
Codi, an aged foreigner, close at the
former's heels. When the two reached
North A street, Yettagotte stopped and
wheeling upon his pursuer pointed a
32-calibre revolver at Codi's head.
Laborers, working on a house near
the corner, saw the occurrence and
started to prevent what appeared to
be an attempt at murder. Yettagotte
noticed that he was attracting atten

stopped running, he darted we6t on A
street and ran south in the alley. Codi
followed him. They were arrested a
few minutes later and placed in the

EARHART WAS MADE
Asked to Remain in Rich
mond by Commercial Club
Offer Too Late.
Anxious to secure the services of
Prof. Will Earhart, formerly head of
the musical department of the local
public schools and to offer Richmond
the best musical entertainments to be
obtained, the Commercial club offered
Prof. Earhart, before he decided to
leave Richmond, a bonus of $5,000 a
year upon the condition that he use
$4,000 of that amount towards giving
the city the best entertainment or Mu
sical Festival each year, and the re
maining $1,000 to be retained by him
for his services.
However, the offer came a trifle too
late, as Mr. Earhart had already ac
cepted the offer made him by the
Pittsburg board of education. The
Commercial club, and an officer of the
organization stated today, is at a loss
to know where it can find another
man so capable of conducting the an
nual May Festival.
At the meeting ot the directors of
the club held last evening it was re
