SAK FRANCISCO, Nov. 24.—The in

has been puzzling lccai scientists and
others for the past week, is believed to
I be one "Dr. E H. Benjamin," an al
leged dentist, who occupied rooms in
an Ellis street lodging house for the
pust two years, but, so far, lie has snc
cessfully evaded all attempts to dis
cover his identity. His attorney, Col
lins, when teen ami pressed to tell more
about the machine and its inventor,
'•This morning the inventor came to
my office the Crocker building, and
told me he had tested the merits of the
ship in last night's storm, with the
greatest success. The wind currents
were very contrary and the test was
one that tried the merits of the machine
in the hardest possible manner, but it
came out of the ordeal in good order,
having breasted the storm
As Weil as Any Bird.
"He started from the locality where
the vessel is housed, and flew over
Alistraz and out through the Golden
Gate, skirting the Clm house and re
turning by the same route across the
bay. He hovered over Seal Rocks for
fully 10 minutes, and played his search
light en the seals themselves. His in
tention is to make another trip in the
evening, probably over the same route,
running out as far as Sacramento."
A dispatch was received frcm Sacra

THE ATTORNEY'S STORY.
Teople Who Tbongkt They Saw anAir
Ship Xot Deceived.
SAK FRAXCISCO, NOV. 24.—The Chron
icle prints a story which would indi
cate that the airship in practical form is
au established fact. According to the
story residents of Sacramento saw a
cigar-shaped flying machine pass over
that city Monday night and later the
£_rship was seen at Oakland. The
Chiomcle then prints an interview
with George D. Collins, a reputable at
torney of San Francisco and who claims
to be attorney for the inventor, in
which he says:
"The reports from Sacramento the
other night were true. It was my
client's airship that the people saw. It
started from Oroville and flew 60 miles in
a straight line directly over Sacramento.
After running up and down once or
twice over the capital my friend came
right on a distance of another 70 miles
and landed at a spot on the Oakland
side of the bay, where the machine
now lies, guarded by thres men. The
inventor found during his trial trip
that his ship had a wavelike motion
That Made H:m Seasick.
In another six days this trouble will be
done away with and it is then his in
tention to immediately give the people
of San Francisco a chance to see his I
machine. He will fly right over the
city and across Market street a dozen
times. I cannot tell you any further
particulars than that the machine does
its work perfectiy and will astound the
world and revolutionize travel when it
has been displayed before the public.
The inventor can fly with it to Ne
York tomorrow if he wants to. He has
forsaken the ideas of Maxim and Lang
try entirely in building the machine
and has constructed it on an absolutely
In spite of Mr. Collins' statement
there are many skeptics who say flatly
they do not believe the story. It is al
most incredible that an airship 150 feet
long could be secreted in any building
near San Francisco without the fact
being made public.

LONDON, Nov. 24.—The St. James

that the government is meditating the
appointment of a commission to inves
tigate on the spot the critical condition
of the sugar industry in the West In

meets the European bounties by duties
on beet sugar or an equivalent meas

Mr. BreidenthaVs Explanation.
Mr. Breidenthal explained the scheme
to a reporter. The main idea is in car
ing for the thousands of unemployed.
"It is believed," said Mr. Breidenthal,
"that a plan of organization involving
bc-th production and distribution, where
labor is given employmen at the usual
wages, and capital is similarly employed,
the profits being shared between both,
and where labor is given the opportu*
nity to atfply its surplus earnings in
small monthly payments for a home,
will, if put in operat.on, result in a few
years in a prosperous, contented and
happy community of home owners,
employing themselves and owning their
own industries, free from debt or other
incumbrance, it being -understood the and though newspaper dis
plan proposed will embrace the idea of
resident members ultimately absorbing
the entire capital. It is expected that a
central company will own the land and
conduct all industries and business of
the community, but this company
would ultimately consist of members of
the community only. I believe the
plan is feasible, and there is no doubt
my mind that it will be carried out
successfully. The plan offers opportu
nities to a class who have no opportuni
Charters For Two Nciv Lines in London
Will Be Granted by Parliament.
LODOX, Nov. 24.—A meeting of the
Metropolitan District Railway stock
holders' association was held here in
furtherance of the project for con
structing two deep level tunnels for an
up and down service of express electric
trains between Earlscourt and Mansion
House. The stockholders have endorsed
the action of their directors approv
ing the scheme, and the necessary
powers will be asked for at the coming
session of parliament. That they will
be granted is a foregone conclusion.
Parliament has already sanctioned
sis metropolitan underground projects
and two will bejsanctioned at the forth
coming session. There are still others
in the air, all electrical. Most of these
lines are planned to rectify the extraor
dinary want of foresight which prac
tically forbade the terminals of the
great railways 10 advance beyond what
were, in the days of their building, the
suburbs of London. The result has
ever since been that the traveler con
sumes as much time in getting from
one great terminus to another on the

N E W YORK, Nov. 24.—The Mail and

extra session of congress called within
20 days after the inauguration of Presi
dent-elect McKinley. This informa
tion comes from Canton in a most posi
tive and direct way, and its reliability
cannot be questioned. It is the opinion

patches disagree regarding his attitude
toward the present agitation for the
Diugley bill, there is substantial
authority for the statement that Majoi
McKinley is averse to raising expecta
tions as to its enactment which, in his
judgment, cannot be realized. He fears
that the business community would be
come demoralized should the bill be
passed in the house again, only to be
laid aside by the senate, and he does
not share Senator Sherman's opinion
that the measure can pass the senate
before the reorganization of that body
on March 4.
Little Else Expected at This Session,

WASHINGTON, NOV. 24.—Members oi

senators expect little save routine leg
islation, including the passage of tne
annual appropriation bills, at the short
session of congress. Senators Cockreil
of Missouri and Hawiey of Conaecticur,
both gave expression to tiiis opinion,
and both likewise agreed in the opinion
that nothing may be expected at the
coming session in tiie way of helping
along an international bimetallic con

If it should be passed as it is, it seems
to me it would be the duty of the pres
ident to assemble congress as soon as
possible after the 4th of March, for a
diligent consideration and a revision of
the whole tariff, in a considerate and
conservative spirit, to the end that a
bill might be passed that would stand
the test of years, subject, of course, to
an occasional correction, where new in
ventions and changes in trade may de
mand it. I is to be remembered also
that the Dingley bill expires by its own
limitation in August, 1898, and it is
impossible to evade the question there
fore the more speedily action is taken,
MB, MORTON'S REPORT.
Secretary of Agriculture Commends Civil
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24.—Secretary
Morton, in his fourth annual report
just made public, shows that with
$280,000 which may be saved from the
appropriations for the current fiscal
year there will have been covered back
into the treasury since March 7, 1893,
over §2,000,000 out of total appropria
tions of §11,179,455.45. That this great
economy was effected without any loss
of efficiency he attributes a large de
gree to the improvement in the person
nel of the force under civil service
rules, which he declares to be "abso
lntely indispensible to the Liaintenance
of an economic and efficient adminis
tration of the public service." I
To complete "the already almost
perfect system of civil service" in his
department, the secretary recommends
the appointment of, a permanent di
rector in charge of bureaus and scien
tific investigations. The chiefs of
scientific bureaus and their assistants,
he declares, are not adequately com
pensated, and strongly recommends
that the salaries of this class of em
ployes be increased.
