A 25-Ton Triple

By WM. H. HUNT, In tne May
Popular Mechanics Magazine.
That the evolution of commercial
aeronautics following closely the
Uae* of maritime developments is
apparent to all who have given
the subject even passing attention.
The early airplanes of limited power,
which by "a supreme effort and under
iHiiri handling succeeded in
struggling aloft with three or five
passengers, may well belikened io
the oar-propelled open boats of the
Tlkings. Likewise, the later ma
chines, capable of transporting 2.»
to 10 persons on St to 100-mi
fligt&ti, may be compared to the last
of the sailing liners which crossed
the ocean in the phenomenal time of
three weeks to a month. Following
this line of thought the latest
product of Gianni Caproni. one of
tfco most daring of the aerial en
gineers, finds a parallal in the
"OreatBastern," the original "ocean
greyhound" and the largest ship of
Its day. In the "Epocha," the most

of the body and are so arranged
that tbey lie crosswise, instead of

Not alone in point of sice and
power is the design a daring one.
Another departure from the conven
tional is that it is tailless, the slight
loss of' stability on this account be
ing more than compensated for by
the immense wing area.' The elimi
aation of tail elevating wings has
necessitated equipping all the planes
with ailerons—movable tips.
As may be supposed, such an im

Topics of the Day
By Herbert E. Gaston
The contract for building Nev
York's state-owned grain elevator at
Brooklyn has been let to a Min
neapoli firm. This illustrates again
by what strange coincidences things
happen in this world. The contract
has been let to the same firm which
has the contract for building the
North Dakota state-owned elevator
at Grand Forks. Of the two state
owned elevators that at New York
is to be the more expensive.
It was only a few weeks ago that
Wall Street brokers, with offices only
a few miles from Gowanus bay, where
the New York state elevator is to ha
built, were telling Spurgeon Odell.
representative of the Bank of North
Dakota, that the state of 'North Da
kota was "getting too socialistic".
They knew a great deal about af
fairs in North Dakota. They ad
mitted it themselves. But they
knew very little about affairs in
their own state of New York. Mr.
Odell told them about the 1,800,000
bushel elevator that was to be built
at Gowanus bay and the other two
sate-owned elevators that already
have been built on Lake Erie and
they expressed surprise. They had
been too busy finding out about
what was happening in North Da
kota to learn about the affairs of
New York state.
They had heard so much about
North Dakota that most of their
knowledge was wrong. They were
sure, that the bonds of North Da
kota could not be sold, even in the
relatively trifling amount of $6.

Dakota have decided that the rem

Common sense tells them that the
excuses given for refusel to handle
the North Dakota secui'ties by
bankers are the flimsiest of "alibi"
stories. Bankers and bond dealers
who fear the money of the people
of North Dakota is going to be
wasted in "socialistic experiments",
have never before shown the slight
est concern what the proceeds of
public bonds were to be used for.
They have freely and readily soil
bonds for works of public improve
ment from which not a cent of rev
enue was to be expected and pay
ment for which would have to be
made solely by tax levies. They
have sold bondB In amounts equal
to the North Dakota issue for gov
ernmental units with not a tenth if
the taxing power or assessed valua
tion back of them. -V
The only real objection to tho
North Dakota bond Issues has been
that the state industries they were
to establish would "invade the field
of private business," and that they
were likely to prove successful.
The private business which they
threaten to disturb has been highly
profitable. If It had been an un»
profitable business, the st'te would
have had the enthusiastic co-opera
tion of bans"!'.* and bond dealers In

New York state goes Into the
terminal grain elevator business
without a thought of objection from
bankers or chambers of commerce,
because tho state is spending Its
money to take trade awt/ from

ital didn't dare to take the risk of
attempting this. And New York,
the state wh^-e this "socialist!-!"

Confidence In the sense of Just
Ice of the American people and
their bellef ln democratln gtfrSrn-
ment gives rise to the hope and
the belief that the North Dakota
bond issue will be fully sub
scribed by the people of the na
tion. The dollars of the workers
should be sufficient to make up the
total, but the dollars of the workers
should not be necessary. There
ought to be enough people with sur
plus capital to invest in America
who believe that the political gov
ernment should be superior to the
business government and that acts
of government which are to benefit
all the people should not be resisted
ljierely because they may interfere
with the profits of a few.
