Moisant swept down to within twenty feet of the ground at a rate of one hundred miles an hour Tuesday afternoon at the avi ation field. His engine thawed in the warmer level only in time to allow him to start his propellers and thread a perilous passage from among the trees to a landing place. When scores of people crowded about the little aviator and congratu lated him on his escape, -he coolly ex plained that, owing to his high alti tude, his carbureter had stuck, and only the downward rush resulting in sufficient pressure against the blades of the propellers to keep them turning long enough to fake the impulse of the revived motor had saved him. Moisant’s altitude establishes the record for the New Orleans meeting so far, the actual unofficial figures be ing given out as 8,038 feet, but all agreed that the real figures were near er 9,000 feet, as sho’.u by an aneroid barometer.

Suits Show New York Is Interested. New York. Litigation involving many milliona of dollars and one of (he oldest factors of international trade methods, the handling of bills of ex change, is likely to be brought into the New York city courts during the.next few months. The suits are the result of the tremendous cotton bills of lading for geries charged to two Alabama cotton firms, Knight, Yancey & Cos. and Steele, Miller & Cos., about eight months ago. The courts of Alabama have witnessed a number of lawsuits since the cotton commission houses failed, and now the complicated troubles are to be trans ferred acre, inasmuch as some of the heaviest losers on spurious bills are lo cal bunks and brokerage linns. A number of German banks with drains aggregating $1,000,000 will file papers in the New York courts by as signment to citizens of this city through their counsel. The suit was based on the contention that the cotton firm paid a draft for $.'19,000 to the bank, attached to what purported to be a bill of lading issued by a railroad acknowledging a specific consignment of cotton bales shipped to the order of Knight, Yancey & Cos., to Springs & Cos. The bill of lading was discovered to bo fraudulent. The trial resulted in favor of the complainant, and Justice Newberger gave judgment for Springs & Cos. on the ground that they bad paid out the money on the belief that the bill was genuine and that proof that the bill was otherwise made it incumbent upon the bank to return the money, $39,000. By far the greatest loss by spurious cotton bills was sulfercd by foreign in terests, and the result of the Springs & Cos. suit will be awaited with great in terest on the other side. The English litigants are represented, as well as the German, by local attorneys, and are pre paring to act. CAN GROW EGYPTIAN COTTON Breeding Work Has Developed Some Su perior Strains.
