ACROSS ATLANTIC IN 16 LANDS AT CLIFDEN, 1900 MILES, FIRST NON STOP FLIGHT ACROSS ATLANTIC. COUPLE BRITISH FLIERS DOIT Speed Much of Way Through Fog— Adventures Amazing and Hazard ous—Landed in a Bog—Claim It Is the Best Route. London.—The final goal of all the ambitions which flying men have ven tured to dream since the Wright Bros, first rose from the earth in a heavier tlian air machine was realized Sunday morning when the young British offi cer, Captain John Atcock, and Lieuten ant Arthur Brown, landed on tlie Irish coast after the first nonstop flight across the Atlantic. Their voyage was without accident. It was a straightaway, clean cut flight, achieved in 16 hours and ^2 minutes, from St. Johns, N. F., to Clifden, Ire land, more than 1900 miles. But the brief and modest descrip tion which comes from the airmen at Clifden tells of an adventurous and amazingly hazardous enterprise. Fog and mists hung over the north Atlantic and tlie Vickefs-Vimy biplane climbed and dove, struggling; to extricate her self from*the folds of the airplane's worst enemy. She i-ose to 11,000 feet, swooped down almost to the surface of the sea and at times the two navigators found themselves flying upside down only 10 feet, above the water. Mists robbed the night of the advan tage of the full nioori and tile wireless apparatus was torn away by the'wind soon after the start. So the two young pioneers of the Atlantic flight without a stop were thrown upon their own re sources. The skilful navigation which brought the machine near to the cen ter of the Irish coast line was one of the finest features of the flight. Landed in a Bog. Before coming) to earth near the Clif den wireless station, Alcock circled the wireless aerials, seeking the best spot. But no suitable ground was found, so he chanced it in a bog. * The wireless staff rushed to the aid o ftlie aviators. They found Brown dazed and Alcock temporarily deafen ed !by tlie force of the impact. As soon as they were, able to be escorted to tlie wireless station they telegraph ed the news to their friends; then had breakfast. "That is the best Way to cross the Atlantic." said Lieutenant Brown aft ty he had eaten. OUR RELATIONS WITH GREAT BRITAIN JARRED Senator Knox Resolutions and Senate Speeches Are Published in Lon don Papers With Comment. London.—Reading the British "press shows plainly that the relations be tween Great Britain and America are being strained. The senate speeches, the Knox resolutions against the league of nations and the report of the American mission which investi gated the Sinn Fein were published Saturday. Even the radical press, that lias fought Ireland's battles for a gen eration. can not support the American indictment of English rule without many qualifications and reservations. Americans should understand clearly that they are endangering seriously good relations with Great Britain by dragging her into their international political disputes. While close stu dents of American affairs jyipraise the attacks at their true',value, it is well to remember that the great masses are ignorant of American politics and that grave misunderstandings develop very quickly when conditions generally are unstable. SAYS WORLD IS SICK OF WAR. League of Nations Will Prevent a Re currence, Declares Cummings. Reno, Nev.—"Tlie world is sick of war. and the league of nations is the only feasible plan to prevent a recur rence of war,'' Homer S.

Gary, Ind.—Five automobile bandits Saturday failed in an attempt to rob the First State bank here, but it ocst the life of Cashier Herman W. JJecker.
