FLYING HAS NOW
Total of 3,1X6,550 Miles Covered In
1920 Without Loss of Life.
(Ey Associated Press.)
NEW YORK. Feb. .A total of
115,163 passenbers flew 3,136,550 miles
In commercial airplanes during the
last twelve months without the loss
of a single life, the Manufacturers
Aircraft association announced here
today. These figures are based on the
performance of 425 plares, and it la)
believed that the number of passen
gers the mileago would be doubled if
the figures of the 1,000 commercial
airplanes operating in this country
"In the absence of any federal sys
tem of registration, air laws and gov
ernment for tabulating the ownership
and performance of aircraft, it has
been difficult to trace the total num
ber," the association stated. "The to
tals are based on questionnaires dis
tributed by the association, but due to
the itinerant rature of much of the
flying, it has been difficult to trare
and record more than half of these.
This one-half, by 87 compenies and
Individuals, are permanently located
In' all parts of the United States.
"Much of the mileage was made on
short flights of 10 to 15 miles, for
which an average fee of $12.50 was
charged. An increasing demand for
aerial transportation between tho cit
ies has been noted, the average charce
for this service being 65 cents a mile.
On practically all klnter-clty flights
baggage or freight was carried, the
quantity limited only by the craft.
This bualne. aggr gated 41,390 pounds.
"There were accidents and forced
landings, but according to the slanod
reports from the 87 companies, in the
3,136.550 miles flown not a single life
was lost. There were 222 forced land
ings and 88 accidents. There have
been fatal accidents In othr Instan
ces, but they occurred In the course
of stun?, or exhibition performances or
under circumstances Indicating that
, undue risk had been taken.

DELAY HAS SAVED
LIFE OF NEGRO
Ey Associated Press)
BATON ROUGE, La.. Feb. 10. Sheriff
T. A. . Grant of Ouachita, who was so
busy with "ivil and commercial mat
ters" that he clear forgot to bang Lon
nie Eaton on February 4. at Monroe,
La., arrived in Baton Ttouge this morn
ing and Interviewed Governor Parker in
regard to the status of the negro.
Sheriff Grant denied the insinuations
that have been made that he purposely
failed to hang Pis ton because he did not
think Eaton should suffer the death
penalty. Sheriff Grant said that he
simply forgot about the negro, who was
and has been for three years In the
Shreveport jail. The prisoner had been
out of his Jail for so long the sheriff
told the governor, he had nothing to re
mind him of the date, and clearly forgot
about the execution until nearly a week
after the time set had passed.
The Impression is growing that the
state will have to give Eaton' his liberty.
Governor Parker is waiting for a report
from Attorney General Coco on tha
status of the negro, before taking ac
tion. It is settled that the negro will
not be hanged.

WASHINGTON. Feb. 10. The inter
state commerce commission today di
rected that a hearjng be given before
the railroad commission of Florida, at
the office of the chamber of commerce,
at Panama City, Florida, on March 10
at 10 o'clock on the application of the
Atlanta and St. Andrews Bay Railway
Co. for permission to abandon the por
tion of its line running from Panama
City to St. Andrews Bay.
The railroad made application to the
commission for this authority onj Decem
ber 22, and after considerable exchange
of correspondence between the commis
sion, the railroad, interested citizens and
the Florida railroad commission, the
hearing has been ordered. All the in
terested parties have been notified. When
this railroad was built St. Andrews Bay
was the terminus and Panama City,
two miles from the end of the line, was
scarcely on the map. The younger city
has now far outstripped the older and
the railroad claims that It is losing
money by operating to St. Andrews Bay
and wants to make its terminus at Pan
ama City, about two miles northward.
Specialists of the department of ag
riculture examined more than 22,000,

HAVANA. Feb. 10. Kitty Barret, 8
years old, shared heroic honors with a
pet parrot In a tale of fire at eea told
by passengers landing from the steam
ship Cartago here, yesterday. The little
golden-haired girl. 'who is a daughter of
Edward Bare Barrett, a newspaper pub
lisher of Birmingham, Ala., refused to
enter a life boat until she had brought
her parrot from her state room and her
insistent demand that the bird be res
cued calmed something approaching a
panic among the passengers and gave
the ship's crew a chance to extinguish
the flames and save the steamer.
While steaming along the coast of
Panama one night, the Cartago was set
on fire by an overheated motor. The
blaze seemed to threaten the safety of
those on board and an alarm was sound
ed. The passengers gathered on deck
and were ready to enter the boats when
Miss Kitty discovered she had left her
parrot behind in her state room. She
refused to enter the boat until Captain
George A. McBride Bent for tbe bird.
Frightened men and women paused to
laugh at the calmness of the child and
her concern over the safety of her pet.
and when the steward brought the par
rot to the deck, he also announced the
fire had been brought under control by
the chief ergineer.
