The program fixed by the late dowager empress provided for a general

The importance of today's concession therefore can scarcely be overestimated.

tths today hailed as the -winner of the jrreat flight yesterdcy to the Statue
of liberty la New York harbor and return for the K10,000 prize offered by
Thomas F. Ryan. la oae of the most thrilling: races in the history of avi
ation, he defeated count de Iiessepv, the Frenchman, and Claude Graham
White, the English winner of the James Gordon Bennett cup on Saturdny.
The Aero clnb ruled thot the meeting ns originally scheiluleil closed es-'
terday, so no further competition is possible.
Today's program was fnll of special prize events, including the Aero
rlub distance contest, altitude context and a jrrand content to take- place late
this afternoon, the latter between Graham-White, the fastest of the mono
pianists, and 3lcCnrdy, the speediest of biplanists.
Very little breeze was stirring this morning, but the weather was the
coldest of the meeting.
Caltifle Grahame-Whlte said today that he vould issue an official chal
lenge to 3Ioisant and put op a purse of $10,000 for another fliffht around the
Statue of Liberty r over any other .course Moisant might choose.

tered. Changing Governments. ..
The convention Saturdav afternoon at
2:30 oclock adopted the article on sched
ules of 21 sections providing for the
transition from the territorial form of
government to the state government. A
bitter debate was caused by an amend
ment invalidating a million dollars of
territorial militia -warrants. The
amenament was adopted in such a lorin
as to prevent future legislatures from
validating any illegal territorial indebt
edness. H. B. Fergusson, leader of the minority,
stated that he had been informed by
wuat ne consiaerea renaDie autnorit"
that an eiiort was being made jn one
or the cominiptpes to secure a raooic
that the state assume all indebtedness,
legal and illegal, and includine an issue
of militia warrants made 40 years ago
that is invalid.
Spiess Gets Angry.
Charles A. Spiess, nresident of the con
vention, retorted that not a single delc
gateand not one committee of the con
vention would favor for one moment the
validation of the militia warrant; that
he had become tired of the innuendoes
and insinuations of Ferguson and dared
him to specify a sinele member of any
committee who had made a proposition
to validate these warrants, an .action
which under the enabling act, eouldoi-j

Fergusson defied tlie Republican ma-

Malaauias Martinez, which was adopted.

The other amendment added applie's
the election laws of 1905 to the elec-
i tions to Tatify the constitution and fojr
state officers, so that the" minority
woud have representation on the electibn
j board. The debate on this amendment,
which was adopted, brought out a state
ment from the Democrats, that they do
not have any intention at present of oj
posing the approval of the constitution. k

epithets were hurtled through the air as1
the delegates.crabbed from the vigils of a
14 hour session, finajlv put throi'-h the
45 sections of the articje on legislative
department, just as thev had been for
mulated by the Republican majority of
the committee. There was not a single
defection from thq IiOTublican ranks, al
though the Democrats had expected in
surgency on the intiative, which was
finally buried bv a strict party vote.
The debate did not confine itself to
tins subiect but local as well as na
tional records of both parties were re
viewed. The race question was injected
early in the session and led to many
h bitter accusations and recriminations.
The Spanish speakimr members voted
solidly with the Republicans on every
issue. It -was during a -passage between
A. B. Fall, the Republican floorleader,
and J. H. Orist, a Democratic orator,
that the short and ugly epithets were J
used and each charged the other with
crimes that caused Crist to threaten a
criminal libel suit.
Charles A. Spiess, convention presi
dent, predicts that the convention will
finish its work by Xov. 12, as it is be
lieved that future debate will be much
curtailed. All the comirtiittees are prac
tically readr to make their final reports.

majority voted in' favor of providing,

draft such provisions. '
The question as to whether the con

a spirited debate, Republicans oppos

jeopardize the admission of the state
into the union.
