AVIATORS WERE jj SlfisN BY THE KEXISAKS ' Bodies of Men Missing Since August 21 * \ce Brought Heine; Messages on I* Wings Told (lie Story. *i ] •] San Diego, Oct 26. It was officially ^ announced here tonight that Meats, i ‘ Cecil II. Connolly of San Diego and t - Frederick I!. Waterhouse of Weiser, [da., army aviators, missing since Aug- j ^ ust 21, were slain in Lower California *1 by two Mexican fishermen. \ s The announcement was made ttpon'i tlie arrival here of the'destroyer Ar- j' roil Ward, bringing the bodies of the - two aviators from Bahia. Los Angeles,]: on the Gulf of Lower California, to j H which point they had flown, losing | *1 their way in a border patrol flight j from Yuma, Arid., to SanDiago. I According to Maj. R. S. Bratton head of tlie military party sent from here to recover the bodies, the slavers * I were from a Mexican sloop, their, identity is known to the I'nited States and Mexican governments and steps are being taken to capture them. The destroyer also brought a part of a story ot the suffering endured by the young aviators, in the form of notes scrawled in part on tlie wings j and fusilage of their DeHaviiand air- | plane, in whicli Connolly and Water house made their last flight, Some of thyye messages, evidently written when the aviators hud almost lost j hope of being found, were of such a j tragic nature that Major Bratton ask-] ed the newspaper reporters to refrain from using them, one of consideration for the officers’ families. Nineteen Kays Without Food. Major Bratton said that the two av iators had gone lb days without food, ■ or at least without much to sustain them. The fate that drew them from their air path remained with them un til the very last. Maj. Theodore Mac Auley. in one of his tights to find them, flew within 60 miles of the spot where they stood guarding their plane. Later, on the afternoon of September 6, they were landed from a canoe on ihe shor es of Los Angeles by the same fisher men who are accused of killing tthem five days later, and at that time were only 12 miles from Los Florres silver mine, where they might have received protection and food. One of their messages, scratched on the airplane fusilage with a knife or nail, gave details of how the aviators lost their way. The message said they remained in the air for four hours and live minutes: that they ran into a rain storm and lost their sense of direc tion. When they sighted the Gulf of California, they thought they were fly ing up the coast, instead of southward along the east coast of the Gulf of California -—-o RAILWAYS ASK RATE INCREASE Hines I’ufs Experts at Disposal of Roads to Determine Costs.
