Admiral Ingersoll attained tjhe
rank of rear admiral on July 10th
last, previous to that time having
•been captain of Evans' flagship, the
Connecticut. His position as cap
tain of this ship made hitn in real
ity Admiral Evans' executive officer
and he was second in command to
him, being outranked only by Ad
miral Sperry, who is now in com
mand of the fleet. When Admiral
(Evans, a sick man, retired jtrom the

at Washington, as wu announced in

In speaking of Admiral Evans' ill
ness Admiral Ingersoll said that it
was due primarily to inflammatory
rheumatism. Admiral Evans suffer
ed his firBt attack when the fleet was
just south of the equator, before its
arrival at Rio. From that time on
he grew worse so that there were
days when the sick commander could
not even appear upon the bridge of
the battleship to give his commands.

vllle Wright today broke the world's
re®ord for time and distance for a
heavler-than-air flying machine,
wih|ch he established yesterday. In
the ^flight requiring great skill on
account of a ten mile wind, he circ
led around the d-rlll grounds at EVrt
Myer fiftj-eighit times in sixty-five
rianutes, and fifty-two seconds, exe
ceedlng the time of yesterday's rec
ord, flight- by three minutes and 37
seconds. The flight was witnessed
by nearly a thousand people,
T^e aeroplane rose fitom the
srognd- almost immediately after
leaving the single starting rail. It
continued to climb higher with each
successive round of the field until it
reached an altitude of 75 feet. For
the first thirty rounds the machine
flew as smoothly as oh its previous
flights, but from that time on It rwas
seen ito pitch at turns, as the 'breeze
from the west struck it. AS' the ma
chine moved front 'the northern end
o*Vtlle field to the southern end, Mr.
Wifefct: kept it several points-in the
W4«i ''the macfiin^ pitched, If
could be plainly seen from below
that it responded promptly to every
move of the levers by the operator.
One of Mr. Wright's assistants mar
ked the time in large, figures at in
tervals" on the roof of a shed, in or
der that Mr. Wright might see how
long he had been in the air.
'A #ust of wind unusually strong,
struck the aerial flyer during the
forty-second round, and- it plunged
causing the crowd to ex
claim in alarm. Mr. Wright then
qaachine lower, but oft
53rd round lie had reached an alti
tude of 200 feet.
When Mr. Wright completed the
fifty-fourth jound he had beaten his
record of yesterday afternoon, which
in turn, had broken the world's rec
ord, established in the morning flight
of yesterday. The crowd gave a lus
ty cheer but Mr. Wright was too
busy with the levers to wave his
Mr. Wright came down at the end
of the fifty-eighth round, landing
"I encountered a stiff breeze,
were his first words. "iFMnig in the
wind as I did today is lot# of fun
It is much more sport than flying in
a calm as on yesterday. The wind
must have been blowing fifteen miles
or more an hour as I could tell by
the quartering of the machine,
kept much higher thaji usual, on
count of the wind.
The signal teorps officers at the
war department today expressed the
belief that Orvllle Wright will make
a speed- of at least forty-two miles
an hour with his heavler-than-alr
machine. If he does make forty
two miles an hour, he would be en
titled to a bonus of twenty per cent
over, the contract price, which would
net him for his machine $30,000,
the contract price being $25,000:
The speed is to be taken,on a meas
ured course of more than five miles
ag&nst, and with the wind. The
stafr't is to be a flying one, machine
to Vpass the starting point, at full
speed at both ends of the course.
The official trials will he held as
soon as Mr. Wright announces his
readiness.' He will probably make a
preliminary flight for a week or more
before he tests the aeroplane before
the army board.

Joseph G. Cannon tonight opened the

his entire address of nearly twp
hours was devoted to £he labor ques
tion. He paid his respects to Sam
uel Gompers, president of the Ame
rican Federation of Labor, who spoke
here on Labor Day and attacked Mr.
Cannon, inviting the union working
men to vote against him. Mr. Can
on plainly said he would never vote
in congress for boycott and some oth

Evansville, Ind., Sept 10.—Heavy
personal onslaught on Speaker Jos

by William ft B^an in the course: of

democratic candidate attacked Mr.
Cannon -from all sideB. t(o charged
the speaker with being a favorite of
predate, corporations, with having
c-.angiad reform legislation and with
having falsified facts, with regard to
Mr.' Bryan's: wealth. Z,

Mr, Bryan repeated his remarks at
Newton, 111.
iNdt content with his statments
at tihese wo places, the democratic
candidate for president later on, at
Olney, 111., whero he stayed for 3
hours,, openly accused the speaker
ftelling a falsehood when the speak
er fixed Mr. Bryan's wealth at a mil
lion dollars. Mr. Bryan referred to
what he said were many exagger
ated statements in regard to. his
possessions, but declared that Mr.
Gannon's statement fyesterday be
fore the Springfield convention was
the first attempt of a man of polit
ical standing or responsibility to es
timate the possessions.
In great detail, Mr, Bryan gave
figures showing how his money had
been acquired from the day he en
tered congress until the present
time. He denied emphatically that
he was worth a mil-lion dollars and
(fixed the amount Of His "earthly
possessions" at $150,000 -as the ex
treme limit. (He had come by it hon
estly, he said, through saving a por
tion of Ms congressional salary, and
from receipts derived from his lec
tures and writings. He demanded
that Speaker Cannon be as frank as
himself and tell the public whether
he had made any money through
lecturing and writing, and to what
extent his money making had been
hampered by strict attention to pub
lio dutletf.
