New York, Aug. 26.-Sailing serene
ly over New York's myriad water craft
Harry N. Atwood, the Boston aviator,
arrived here in his aeroplane today,
the first man in history to travel 1,
265 miles in a heavier than air ma
Atwood's safe landing on Governor s
Island, after flying down from Nyack,
N. Y., above the Hudson river, through
a fog which made him only dimly vis
ible to the million eyes that watched
him, was a notable incident in the an
nals of aeronautics. He not only
broke the world's record, covering 1,
265 miles in an air-line, or perhapsi:
100 more miles with his detours, but
he flew all the way in the same bi
plane and with no important mishaps.
Rivals Fast Trains. - I
Atwood's flight is comparable only
to that made by fast trains, for he
covered the distance in an actual fly
ing time of 28 hours and 31 minutes.
Atwood's final lap in his long jour
ney was a glide of twenty-five miles,
from Nyack, N. Y., .where he had
stopped overnight. He landed, dapper
and smiling, hatless and hungry, ir I
thie arms of a handlfu! of United States
army officeers and men who hailed him
as America's greatest aviator.
"Well I'm glad its ended," said At
wood as he hopped from his machine.
"I guess the next long distance flight
for me will be from. San Francisco or
Los Angeles to the Atlantic coast."
Atwood's coming was unexpected on
Governor's Island, as it had been her
aided that he would land at the1
Sheepshead Bay race track, where.
thousands lined vantage points look
ing skgward. Atwood expressed re
gret at their disappointment.
Entry Into Metropolis.
Atwood left Nyack at 1.53 o'clock
j' this afternoon, after freeing his ma-1
chine from a position where a startI
would have been difficult and perilous.
He followed the Hudson at a low alti
tude the entire distance. At Yonkers,
-as he leaned- forward to wave a silent
reply to the cheer, the wind clipped t
his cap . from his head. Thousands,l]
clustered around Grant's tomb and(
*along Riverside Drive shore, roared'I
their enthusiasm when Atwood passed.l<
- .As he approached the recreation pier
at 50th street, where another crowd
clustered, he turned his machine so1
that it swept in a complete circle from:I
*'ne side of the river to the other andi
then started down stream once more. [
There was a repetition of this outburst
at the Battery as he passed and grace-i
fully circled Governor's Island. An ]
*hour after he landed, Atwood was on
his way uptown.
Cross-Continent Trip Next.
"I expect to go to -Boston tomorrow,"
he said. "We will take my machine
apart here and ship it to Boston. I
don't intend to do any more flying
around New York until I return from
my trip across the continent. I prob
ably will start from Los Angeles or1
.San Francisco about October 1
"'I feel as fine as a fiddle. Nearly
all of the mechanics who started with
.me from St. Louis have been laid up,
'but I never felt better. At nearly every
place I stopped, some fellow asked me
to carry a letter to his girl up in Bos
ton. Of course, I agreed 'to do so. I
am going to take them all to Boston
with me and mail them there."
May Quit the Game.
Atwood tonight said that he may re
tire permanently from aviation, and1
his projected coast to coast fitght may
niever be made.
"Tn is too risky," the aviator said.
"Man after man has made new records
in aviation of late, oiy to drop S-id
denly to Oeath. I have been muchi
more car-ful than many bird men, but
I feel that if I stay in the clouds toa
long I shall some day meet ny fate
also. It i sinevitable sooner or later
an aviator, no matter how careful he
may be, Will end his flights w-;Lh a
sudden plung to destruction.'
Of his reward for his flight, he said:
"Many imagine that I am making a
huge sum out of this trip. I am not.
The only sum that is actually comin
to me it the $10,000 already paid, of
fered by Victor J. Evans, of Washing
ton. Out of this I must pay a forfeit
of $4,000 to my financial backers for
failing to stop at all the twenty cities
scheduled on the route."
SON CONFESSES SLAYING FATHER
Prisoner Secretly 3oved, Lynching|
Attempt Being Feared.-Victims'
Booneville, Ind., Aug. 25.-After
having been pressed by continuous
questioning for almost thirty hours in
jail, William Lee late today made a
written statement, in which he said
he had killed his father, Richard Lee,1
in self-defence, after the father had
murdered his wife and younger son,1
Clarence. The bodies of Lee's father,
mother and brother were found in
their burning home early yesterday,
and Lee was charged with their mur
der. After young.Lee's statement to
day, Sheriff Scales, fearing the prison
er would be lynched, secretly took
him to Evansville.
Lee, who is but 22 years old, calmly
reiterated his story that he knewl
nothing of the circumstances of the
killing of his family until late this af
ternoon, when he suddenly said: "I
1ave somethiig preying on my mind,"
and, calling for paper and pencil, he 1
wrote as follows:
"I was awakened by a noise, and
went into the bed room, where my
!ather and mother and brother slept.
.s I opened the door I saw that my
nother and my brother had been mur
lered. My father sprang at me, axe in
and, exciaiming, 'I will get you, o'
grabbed the axe away from him and~
tit him over the head with it. I could
;mell kerosene, and I found oil had'
~lready been poured over the 'bed.
ust because matches were handy, and
did not know what else to do, I set
ire to the bed clothing, and then gave
he alarm'of, fire."
After he had completed the state
nent, he said:
"I didn't know what else te do when
set the place on fire. I didn't know
ow the thing would look."
No Faith in Statements.
The streets about the jail were
~rowded all day with townspeople and
drmers. The county officials said
bey placed .no faith in his statement.
The motives ascribed by the officials
