Defying1 the court injunction secured by the Wright Bros., Louis Paulhan, the French aviator, sailed in the air here yesterday, as he said he would do when he came here. The little frenchman was the sensation of the daj' at Avia tion park. He threw the 20,000 spec tators Into a frenzy by a spectacular flight in a Farmau biplane. Curtiss had given an exhibition in a new and untried machine in which later CWfford Harmon, the millionaire ama teur, made some short flights; Charles E. Willard in the Curtiss No. 1 had made a successful flight and several times Roy Knabenshue and Lincoln Beachy had ascended In two small dirigibles and maneuvered their craft, but noth- l ing to thrill the crowd occurred until Paulhan swept in. Beachy and Knabenshue were piloting their dirigibles around tlie course when the daring Frenchman appeared sud denly out of a gulley hidden from the view of the grandstand, circled the course three times, went out across country, came back over the grand stand and alighted in the center of the field. In two later flights he gave a re markable exhibition of control over his machine, gracefully making sharp turns, now dipping almost to the ground to scatter in frightened flight a" group of officials gathered ou the field; again skimming the grandstand only a few feet above the" heads of people, ascending and finally -approaching from the rear the tent that houses his aeroplane, just clearingtthe top and alighting within 100 feet of the en trance. Paulhan was given a demonstration such as Is seldom witnessed at a public gathering in this country. Men shouted themselves hoarse while -women ap plauded and. waved handkerchiefs. Paulhan, elated by the fur'ofe he had (created, danced gallj' into his tent. The sky was overcast with clouds and' there was a suspicion of dampness in tlje at mosphere. The wind was from the west, blowing strongly an unfavor able condition, the aviators said. GEM. iyiArriTr-r COX.. Capt. Powler, Member of Governor's Staff and Grandson 'of Capt. i Beasran.
