' Walter Wellman, the celebrated Arctic explorer, has a second paper in the July McClure's on the airship trip to the pole which he expects to make in a month. In this article, which he calls "Will the 'America' Fly to the Pole?" he describes his marvelous air-j c ship "America" and tells of dozens of f Ingenious inventions embodied in It ; that have never before been used by ; aerial navigators. Some idea of what j 18 a gigantic ship the •'America" Is may be gained from a few of the many proportions and figures he gives: "Its length is 183 feet, and Its greatest diameter is 52.5 feet. The steel car underneath It Is 115 feet long, and ''from the bottom of this car to the top of the gas reservoir the distance Is 65 feet, the height of a four-story house. The surface of the gas-reservoir or balloon Is 24,000 square feet, or more than half an acre, and the weight of the cotton, silk, and rubber la two tons. When the ship sets out upon its voyage It will embrace more than 20, «00 pounds—ten tons—of material and cargo." There are a crew of four men. 12 dogs with sledges. Instruments of all sorts, sleeping and cooking gear, boat, oars, skees, guns, ammunition, •tc.. which weigh more than a ton. There are also In the cargo more than of Hot water For the Bath, Kitchen and Laundry The Star Heater furnishes plenty of hot water for bath »«s all domestic purposes.

He tells of the Arctic ad vantages to airship navigation, of pe culiar Arctic difficulties and of the al most incredible inventions by which they hope to overcome them, of their c h ance8 for fair winds—worked out from scientific observations,—of the busy life during their voyage when each man of the crew must be on duty 18 hours each day and of the four strings to their bow, or four plans of day been ing last his of ton action: the first being to sail to the pole and back to headquarters or no other land, and three alternatives which will probably yield them partial successes at any rate. One cannot Imagine a more fascinating subject for speculation than this Wellman article of adventure in the making. STOPS LIQUOR TRANSPORTATION KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 6.—Judge John C. Pollock, in the United States district court, here yesterday, revok ed his mandatory order compelling ex press companies to carry C. O. D. liquor packages and denied temporary injunctions against the Well-Fargo Express company and the Pacific Ex press company, asked by the Harvest King Distilling company, forcing the express companies to accept its ship ments. Judge Pollock held that there was no common law duty resting upon the express companies to engage In C. O. D. liquor business. May 15 several express companies j announced that they would no longer carry C. O. D. liquor shipments into Kansas City, giving as their reason that public sentiment was opposed to such traffic in the face of the Kansas prohibition law. The distilling com panies urged that the express com panies had no legal right to refuse such business. Judge Pollock issued a mandatory order June 1, compelling the express companies to carry C. O. D. shipments until the questions at issue might be presented to the court in proper form. This order he has revoked.
