officials In Washington Indeed it has
been confident predicted that this

ed and substitute in their places men j
mown to be in sympathy with the new
order of things In Turkey
Mehmed All Bey is a comparatively

We are going to buy Baldwins ma
chine r we need it said General James
Allen chief signal officer and yester
dayhe indicated taat failure to com
ply with the speed requirements will
not prevent the purchase ot the air

therefore that the speed and endur
ance trials will merely determine the
price to be paid for the dirigible
If in the first official speed trial
Captain Baldwin should make less
than sixteen miles an hour General
Allen may so change the method ot
determining the speed that in the sec
cud trial night Captain Baldwins
dirigible will make the required speed
The first speed test which it Is ex
pected will take place this evening
will be over a course about two and
onequarter miles in a westerly direc
tion from Fcrt Myer
Captain Baldwin is satisfied that
he can make twentytwo miles an hour
under the conditions prescribed by
the signal corps General Allen and
the scientists who have been watching i
the Baldwin flights are of the same
opinion Colonel James Temples for
mer chief of the aeronautical division
of the British army said that he be
