PLAIN DEALER TUESDAY, AUG. 3, 1909 BY MEAD PUBLISHING CO. Official Paper of City and County DUCKED AGAIN AVIATOR TRIES TO FLY TO LON DON IN AEROPLANE AND FAILS. SECOND BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT Machine Drops Into Sea Two Miles from Dover, England.—Trial Fol lows Preliminary Test that Results in Damage to Plane. A:-'. London, July 29.—Hubert Latham, the aviator, made another attempt to cross the English channel and plung ed Into the sea two miles off the coast, near Dover, where a French torpedo boat picked him up. In Calais and Sangette it became known that Latham, who was bitterly disappointed at his failure to start when Bleriot crossed successfully, would make the attempt again. Thousands of spectators crowded the coast line to watch the attempt and the French torpedo boats, at a •word, steamed out and formed a long chain across the channel. It was known that, robbed of his anticipated triumph of being the first to cross, Latham would make a des perate effort. Exactly at 6 o'clock the start was made. Early in the day, with cheering thousands gathered about, Latham in his monoplane made an effort to start. Bad luck attended and the machine came crashing to the ground. A wheel was broken and the propeller smashed. It was announced that the attempt would be postponed to 3 o'clock in the afternoon. At 3 o'clock a high wind was blowing off shore and it looked dangerous to start. Shortly before 6 o'clock Latham an nounced that he would make the ef fort despite the conditions and with his monoplane repaired he entered and rose'quickly, passing out with rapid flight over the sea. From the French coast the machine circled half way, then recovering its course headed straight across. A shout of triumph went up from the assem bled multitude who saw victory ahead. With rapid flight Latham passed out at a height of between 400 and 450 feet until he blended with the sky l\ive and was tost to view. On the English coast lookouts re ported a flying speck which soon grew Into shape. It came onward with ev erything indicative of success, al though to the observers It seemed to be dipping downward. Suddenly, when in full sight and not more than two miles off shore, it dipped and fell splash Into the sea. Latham had dis tanced the foremost of the torpedo boats, which was about three miles away, but it steamed up and took him on board after he had floated for a short time. Nineteen miles of the twenty-one that span the channel had been passed and three minutes more of flight would have landed him. The attempt was more spectacular than that of Bleriot and more daring. Latham was Intensely disappointed over his failure, but seemed to have suffered no serious Injury from his fall. Hubert Latham ia a comparatively recent aspirant for flying honors, but several daring exploits already had gained him much attention. He was the first to attempt a flight of the English channel, but his effort failed. After waiting many days for favorable •weather conditions, he set out from Calais on July 19 last, headed for Dover. He cleared the cliffs beautiful ly and hiB flight appeared propitious until midway in the channel, when his motor failed him and his monoplane settled gently on the unruffled waters. He was picked up by a torpedo boat that had followed him. He was un injured, though the monoplane was somewhat damaged In getting It aboard. Latham uses an Antoinete monoplane designed by M. Levasseur, and which consists principally of a central skiff like body from either side of which a main plane extends at slightly rising angle. Before his attempt to cross the chan nel he had made several successful flights at Mourmel-on-Legrand, France, •where on June (1 he established a new monoplane record by remaining in the air one hour, 7 minutes and 47 sec onds.

Y., July 29.—Harry K. Thaw sat in the supreme court here and heard a woman's testimony, that made his pallid face flush. He saw a pearl handled dog whip ex hibited and he heard the witness swear that she had seen him wield it on the bare flesh of young girls. The prisoner's wife, Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, heard most of the testimony, which was of such a nature that Justice Mills preceded its presentation with the warning that "no woman should stay in the court room unless she is will ing to hear everything." Two girls left the room. The witness was Miss Susan Merrill, a buxom, pink-cheeked woman, of about 35 years, and she opened a new chapter in the life of Stanford White's slayer. She told of alleged acts of his between 1902 and 1905, when he was a young bachelor about New York be fore the tragedy on the Madison Square roof garden which resulted in his be ing placed In the state asylum, from which he is now trying to escape. Her testimony was in marked con trast to that of two alienists who went on the stand and gave Thaw a clean bill of health, declaring that in their opinion he was sane. Summarized her testimony was that during the three years named she kept in succession two New York lodging houses, where Thaw rented rooms under assumed names and to which he brought at various times more than 200 girls. Handled Hush Money. After Thaw's imprisonment, she said, he paid these women at least $26,000 as the price for their silence and to "keep them from bothering Thaw's wife or his mother." One of them, who, she said, passed as Thaw's wife, received $7,000. The money came from Thaw. GUARDS SHOOT FOR TROPHIES. State's Team for Camp Perry to Be Selected at Lakevlew.

CATCHING THE SPEAKER'S 1 FMN Naws Note—Colorado Suffragettes re Planning a Campaign to Elect Woman to Congress Next Year. I GHAT IN COURT CHAT AND SMILE LIKE OLD PALS WHILE ALIENISTS. TESTIFY. SLOW GRIND BEGINS OVER AGAIN Dr. Evans, of "Brain Storm" Fame, Says Defendant Is Sane. Like wise Aged Dr. Scheddt, Who Is Called by Defense. White Plains, N. Y., July 28.—Thaw alienists began their slow march on the stage in the Thaw case. All ef forts of Stanford White's slayer to obtain his release from the Mattewan asylum for criminal insane, are cul minating in the testimony of the ex perts, called to prove him sane, and when they are through the prisoner will take the stand himself. In two respects the hearing is a fresh reminder of the two homi cide trials which Thaw underwent. District Attorney Jerome, of New York, at the request of the attorney general's ollice appeared in court and took entire charge ot the state's case. Mr. Jerome and Thaw sat so close to gether that their chairs touched, but if the prisoner had any fear of the man who prosecuted him, his face did not show it. All but one of the witnesses ex- the New York district attorney chat ted and smiled like old friends reunit ed. The other familiar feature of the hearing was Dr. Britton D. Evans, of the New Jersey state insane asylum, at Morris Plains, famous for his in troduction at the trials of the term "brain storm." Evelyn Nesbit Thaw did not come to White Plains. Mr. Jerome said that she was still under subpoena and might be called for cross-examination after Thaw testified. Dr. Britton D. Evans said that dur ing a recent talk with Thaw in the jail here the prisoner declared that his wife's assertion on the stand the week before last that Thaw had threatened to kill her was false. Thaw is expected to repeat this on the stand and the state may call his wife to the charge once more. Never Felt Remorse. Expert testimony began with the first witness. Dr. Henry Ernst Scheddt of White Plains. District Attorney Jerome took charge of the case for the state. The witness read a condensed his tory of Thaw's life, compiled from in terviews with the prisoner. In this various events which might have a bearing upon his mental condition, were explained to Thaw. In discus sing the killing of White, Thaw told the witness that it sometimes sur prised himself that he felt no remorse. Beltrami Hearing Postponed. Bemidji, Minn., July 282.—The hear ing of the charges against the Bel trami county officials, which was to have commenced here Tuesday before M. E. Ryan, has been postponed until Aug. 5.

Ma bray, accused of using the United gtates mails to defraud, will both be tried before Judge McPherson in Des Moines at the next session of the federal court is the opinion of many of the local officers. And If so It will make the September term of the fed eral court by far the most Important that has ever been held in this city and probably In the state of Iowa from a standpoint ot general interest to the public. Both cases have already been given the widest publicity. They affect a large number of people and both have many features of the tragic which has aroused a keen interest in every one. Both men are anxious to be tried in the federal court in Des Moines—one because he fears his enemies in Council Bluffs. The fed eral officers are as anxious to try Mabray in Des Moines as he is to have his trial here because they be lieve they stand better chances of securing a conviction, while on the other hand the prisoner feels that he has a better chance for an acquittal. So with both sides favoring a hearing in this city it seems certain that it will be held here. Shippers Win in Freight Rate Fight. Live stock shippers won their fight before the state railroad commission when the ruling was made that the 31-foot minimum rate rule will be en forced until June 1, 1910, and it will be changed if conditions then are the same as at the present time. The compromise was based on the theory that railroads should not be required to furnish 31-foot car^. when they have none, but that the shippers should be given sufficient notice before the change is made. Applications for higher rates on candy, confectionery, hides and leath er in rolls were denied, these decis ions being victories for Freight Com missioner E. G. Wylie and other rep resentatives of the shipping interests. The commission ruled in favor of the creameries and an order was made that joint express rates equal to 80 per cent of the sum of the two locals be placed in effect. A reserva tion was made in favor of the express companies, allowing them to charge a reasonable amount for transfers. No Mystery in Byers' Death. Col. A. W. Swalm made a complete investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Lawrence Marshall Byers in London and reach ed the conclusion that everything pos sible was done by the doctors' and nurses at the London nursing home where Professor Byers' death occur red, but that it was impossible for them to proong his life.
