Overwhelm $10,000 Aviator.
New York, May'\30.-Messages of
-ongratulation are pouring in on
Glenn H. Curtiss by the bushel. Since
making the S$10000 flight from Al
bany to New York lesterday he has
remained quietly at his hotel, and has
mnade no plans other than for an ear
ly return to his 'home in Hammionds
port, N. Y.
Among those who wired their con
ratulations to Curtiss today are the
ayton, Ohio, International Aero
\lane club, Jerome H. Joyce, presi
ent of the A'ero Club of Baltimore;
Charles J. Bell, president of the Club
of Washington, D. C., and George M.
Meyers, president of the Aeronautic
association of Kansas City.
Curtiss had his machine carefully
manined today, and a leak was dis
overed in the lubricating oil tank.
This caused no mishap yesterday, but
it was a source of unknown danger.
The depletion of his supply of lub
ricating oil is given by the aviator
as his reason for stopping at the up
er end of Manhattan yesterday be
fore continuing the flight to Gover
nor's Island. The flight was resum
ed after he had replenished the sup
Mayor Gaynor will preside at a din
ne in Curtis's honor at the Hotel

tinguished persons, who are especial- St
ly interested in aviation. ini

which provided that agricultural lab- te<
