Owners CALIF OBNIA PRISONERS MUTINY Change of Administration Signal for r Uproar Among Prisoners. Sacramento, Cal. change of administration at the Folsom state prison by a demonstration in tended to frighten Warden James A. Johnston, the convicts in the prison mutinied Friday night. From 9 until 11 o'clock they cursed former Warden Reilly and his successor and defied the guards to stop them. The confusion reached such a degree in one of the larger cells that a guard shot to intimidate prisoners who had climbed to the bars and were cursing him. Greeting the Cry From Every Cell. When the bugle sounded "lights out" at 9 o'clock, the last order to bo executed with Warden Beilly in office, a cry went up from almost every con vict. The shouts were mingled with curses against Beilly and the guards of his ad ministration. Johnson was also cursed. For two hours the noise continued with increasing vigor. Convicts dared the guards to stop them, called the names of particular guards and defied them to step inside the cells. Turnkey Threatened; Quits. The name of Assistant Turnkey F.

JUNE I BAB DAV FOR AVIATORS I is is PHIL PARMALEE KILLED AT N0R1H YAKIMA DURING WIND STORM. Was Giving Exhibition at Fair Grounds —In Air but Three Minutes When Machine Fell—His Partner Says He'6 Got Enough—Stites Injured, at Long Beach, Cal. North Yakima, Wash.—With a smile and a wave of his hand to the thou sands who watched him Philip O. Par malee, one of the Wright aviators, took the air in the teeth of a gusty west wind here Saturday afternoon. Three minutes later his broken and lifeless body was dragged from beneath the wreckage of his biplane in an apple orchard in the lower end of the Moxee valley, two miles from his starting point. As he rose from before the grand stand at the fair grounds Parmalee swung to the west over the Yakima river. He rosé to a height of about 400 feet and his speed increased to al most a mile a minute, although it was noticed that his plane dipped and rolled and seemed to be controlled with difficulty. Halted and Plunged. When he had gone about two miles from the fair grounds he swung in a wide circle to the eastward for the re turn journey. As he squared away before the wind the great plane checked in its course, fluttered a second like a wounded bird and plunged below the line of the trees. It is thought by the mechanicians who were employed by Parmalee that a sudden gust from one of the draws or small canyons that notch the sides of the Moxee valley struck the ma chine and rendered the elevating planes unmanageable. Parmalee started his public career In automobile sports. Turpin Says He'll Quit. . "I'll never fly again," declared J. Clifford Turpin, Parmalee 's team mate, when he arrived from Seattle. ''So far as I can tell from descriptions of the accident, the tail of the machine was caught by an up current of air which prevented Parmalee from controlling the machine. ''The biplane was what has been called a Parmalee-Turpin model. It was an adaption of the Wright plane, the same system of control being used. The control was therefore perfectly familiar to Parmalee and myself. This particular plane was assembled about six weeks ago in California and both of us had used it several times." The engine of the wrecked biplane was stripped of all removable parts by souvenir hunters. What remained of it was brought here, while the planes and framework of the biplane were burned. ''Safest" American Aviator. Los Angeles.—Aviator Phil O. Par malee was considered by experts as the "safest" of American aviators, as well as the most successful financially of those employed by the Wrights. He was said to have earned $197,000 for the Wright brothers during the year 1911, and he left their employ only a few weeks ago. When Parmalee and his partner, J. Clifford Turpin, left here two weeks ago, after spending eight months in Los Angeles, they took with them two biplanes, which were built under Par malee 's supervision in this city. Parmalee was born in St. John's, Mich., about 25 years ago, and his first business venture was as a partner with his father in the manufacture of gas engines. Later he became an au tomobile salesman for a large iaetory at Flint, Mich. F. be no a Employed by Wrights." Two years ago Parmalee entered the employ of tho Wright brothers. He came to Los Angeles first with Arch Hoxsie, who was killed here January 1, 1911. In Chicago last August Parma lee established a world's record, flying to a height of 10,600 feet, but the ord was broken on the succeeding day by Lincoln Beachey. After his tour of the northwest Par malee had planned to go to Chicago to enter the inter-city flights. Parmalee made many flights in Los Angeles and vicinity in the last six months. His gentlemanly demeanor and his quiet and unassuming ways made him the most popular aviator who ever flew in southern California. The Seattle Accident.
