' London, Sept. 26. The " first naval airship built for the Rritlsh govern ment .by Vlckers' Sons ' & Maxim at a of Jtoo.OoO, was wrecked at 1 '.ar row, in Furnoss. It was drawn ojt of It shed at 7 oVlock In the- morning and thirty minute later was'jgnk. -The 'new dirigible left Its shed for the first tlm'eMay'22 and was floated, hut 'was-'found too heavy to fly. It was sent back to MHe'ihed four 'days later and, after much work was done upon it, the airship was taken over h the" admiralty on September' 22. 4 It Is now an absolute-wreck and baa never been flown. ' ' : M v' i Tore ' Herself Apart. : It Is difficult to .'say exactly what happened. There were officials on the spot, but no Informatlon'can be gained either from the Vlckers coneern-or the admiralty.' Apparently . the center of the huge frame work, which "was 512 feet long, was weak, and the pressure of the lig'ht nine mile breeze made It part as it left the shed, stern first. It listed to leeward and began to wriggle like a great snake.- Crackling, tearing sounds followed, and before the cap tain' orders could be carried out the airship broke In half. The center por tion looked like the-battered portion of a concertina. ' There was no actual ripping of the coverings of the hydrogen reservoirs, but the gas emptied gradually. TJnough of It however, fortunately remained to keep the two ends afloat, although It Is feared that the stern part w HI sink. The machine actually dipped, but It lifted again. As the gas was Intact in one or two chambers for a moment It was feared that the stern half would break loose and fly aloft with the crew that was in the latter part of the Gondola, but I he stays and tickle kept the two "halves together. The men dived and swam to the sides of the dock and all were saved. LUTHERANS ARE ACTIVE. Church Prepares for Further Unity to Follow Its Anniversary. New York. Sept. 26.
