AIRSHIP WAS UNDER PERFECT CONTROL Another Step Is Made Toward Aerial Navigation. CURZON FOR THE CABINET Rumored Changes Contemplated By Lord Salisbury—Serious Differences Between Von Buelow and the Prus sian Minister of Finance. Friedrichshafen, Oct. 23. Count Von Zeppelin is satisfied with the per formance of his air ship. He says It has been proved that it was absolutely under the control of the steering appa ratus. This apparatus, however, was not in most perfect order on the first ascent. One of the two rudders below the machine at the stern would not work freely. Thus, instead of moving parallel with each other, the rudders frequently formed an angle. This diffi culty hampered Count Von Zeppelin very much indeed. The decisive trial trip has not been made yet for the machine is still in the experimental stage, though an un doubted step toward the achievement of aerial flight has been made. 'A former nautical engineer of Geneva, who is watching the trial, Liventaal by name, expressed himself as being dubious of the machine’s success. “The prime condition of a navigable airship,” he said, “is that it must be able to go to windward. This was not done in the present trial, nor do I think it can be done. ” The technical observations noted dur ing the trials of the ship and other structive details will not be available for several days and until they are known it is impossible to do more than register Count Von Zeppelin’s summing up of the trial: “It proved that my ship is absolutely under my control.” FOREIGNERS ARE IN DANGER. Chinese Rebels Defeat the Imperial Troops In Battle. Hong-Kong, Oct. 23.—The situation at Canton is comparatively quiet. It is reported that the consuls have received letters warning them of danger.

Their leaders are supposed to number ten, each commanding a separate band. The one operating in the How-Lung Hinterland, is a mere stripling, but is everywhere successful. He is reported to have defeated a large body of impe rial troops, killing 100 of the Chinese soldiers. Takes Issue With Von Buelow. Berlin, Oct. 23;—Since the nomina tion of Von Buelow to be chancellor ru mors have been current of serious differ ences of opinion between him and the Prussian minister of finance, Dr. Von Miquel. Last week Count Von Buelow had an Interview of an hour’r duration with the minister of finance and it is semi-officially stated that they arrived at a complete understanding. This, however, the Radical press doubts. Rumored British Cabinet Changes. London, Oct. 23.—There are reports of many cabinet changes impending. Lord Curzon is coming from India, prob ably to take Mr. Balfour’s place, Bal four becoming foreign secretary. Lord Cromer may succeed Curzon. Cham berlain seems slated to remain in the colonial office. Curzon’s return means that he will be put in training for the position of premier. England Leases Ching-Wan Harbor.

At the exit an automobile was in wait ing and they were taken to the resi dence of Judge Springer, opposite the capitol, where Mr’. Bryan had breakfast. A few minutes before 9 o’clock Mr. Bryan was driven to the Baltimore and Ohio depot where he made a brief speech from his automobile. He spoke on impe rialism and civil service. A large as semblage of people were massed about the depot. Mr. Bryan stated that it was not his highest ambition to be president, “but to make this government so good that to be a private citizen in this republic will be a greater honor than to be a king in any other nation.” A delegation from the Maryland state central committee met Mr. Bryan hero and at a few minutes after 9 o’clock he left in a special train of three cars for Rockville, where he made tha first of a series of speeches in a tour of Maryland. Before reaching Washington the train on which Mr. Bryan came made a brief stop at Alexandria, Va. The only other stop made .in Virginia after daylight was at Manassas. That point was reached at a very early hour. The stop was only for a moment and Mr. Bryan did not appear. Nevertheless there was a crowd at the station. ROOSEVELT’S SECOND DAY.
