HIEN&ri MINERS MAY BE      iwouiD dissolve
The Honorable Justice Morrison Refrains from Considering at Present Those Cases, so Unjustifiable and Atrocious Were Their Acts���Fourteen Strikers Released
on Suspended Sentence���Gives Reason for Action.
Yesterday morning the honorable
Justice Morrison allowed to go on
suspended sentence fourteen miners
who had been convicted previously of
having had a hand in the strike
I roubles In Nanaimo, Ladysmith and
South Wellington last August, his
lordship refusing, however, to consider at the present the cases of those
convicted of deeds of violence at Extension, where the looiing, burning
and intimidation were characterized
by hiB lordship as "unjustifiable and
"1 have not considered the Extension cases at all with a view to dealing with them in the same manner
as I have dealt with those 1 have
taken up today," said his lordship.
"The, crime's that were committed
there were so unjustifiable and atrocious that I have some hesitation in
considering anybody connected with
Scores Bill English.
During the course of his remarks
the pr< siding judge also took occasion
to refer to what he had heard of the
conduct of the Nanaimo miner, Bill
English, whom he had liberated on
suspended sentence Immediately aft?r
bis conviction on an unlawful assembly charge last week.
"1 have been told." said his lordship, "that English, immediately on
his release, returned to Nanaimo and
began to abuse the police, in fact
that he did everything ii would be expected a dishonorable man would do.
It bas been reported to me that Eng
lish staled on bis return to Nana!
mo that everything was all right here
at the assizes for the miners, and that
be bad been allowed to go because
nothing else could be done with him.
1 am told this is the Becond time such
a thing bas been done. What I have
beard of English may not be true, but
I think that if It is untrue, he should
appear ln this court and say so. He
is not now within my power, but 1
think that would be the honorable
��� -course for him to pursue, if what 1
have heard of him is not true. Such
arts as these make It difficult for
Judges to extend the leniency which
th. -. always desire to extend."
Those  Released.
The fourteen miners released yesterday were: "Big l.ouis" Neuiiihal

list, with a different remark for almost each one. as In* was turned out

methods which  were adopted In the
old days in such cases as these.
Shorten Sentences.
"In  England  for many years there
has been a marked tendency for leniency in sentences, and it   bas    been
urged as a greater plea for more leniency,  that   within  this   period  crime
has decreased.    Now  this coniention
has been taken to be fallacious���to be
wrong, and that rather prison reform
is responsible for the diminution    of
crime, and not altogether the leniency
shown.    But  the  reduction   of  crime
has  justified   the   reduction   of   sentences.    No  one  today   will   advocate
an  unreasonable    term of    imprisonment���-severity of sentences.
Not Criminals.
"Now  I do not  think that any of
you  belong  to    what    criminologists
term  the 'criminal class.'    I do not
call you criminals.    You are not criminals.    You have been up to the time
of these troubles law-abiding citizens, !
who In my opinion have been betrayed into these troubles by a machina-1
tlon which was most difficult for you !
to resiBt.    Now yon can assist in the j
reform of those things, and you can I
help  the  courts  and  constituted  authority in these reforms, and if you
do not, heads of families such as you
are, then the case is hopeless.
"Now I hope that my treatment of
you today will not tend lo bring the
observance of the law into contempt
on account of the apparent leniency.
I have remonstrated In this way before, and in only one case before have
my efforts been ignored. 1 tried a
young man on a cbarce similar to
those upon which you were tried, only
a year ago, in Nanaimo. On representations being made such as have been]
made en your behalf, 1 released him. |
1 don't think I released him on his ]
own recognizance, but he was a
healthy, vigorous, respectable looking
man. and 1 did not want to send him
to jail.

"I was pained to hear ihat at the
outbreak In Nanaimo of these troubles
that this young man was right In the
midst of the trouble again; be was
I tried and sentenced and given the
, full limit of the law, which 1 think
he richly d. Berved. Now the laps..* of
one mini should not of course prejudice others. 1 hope you will not
think 1 am taking advantage- of your
presenl position of giving gratuitous
advice, but I want to tell you that it
is a mistake for you to assume tha:

may commit breaches of the law with

those grievances by taking tin- law

Salt Like City. Utah. Feb. 11.���Alleging tbat Sounthern Pacific control
aud operation of the Central Pacific
constituees a violation of the Sherman anti-trust, act and of the railroad
laws, under which the roads were
founded. Attorney (Jeneial Mclleyn-
olds, through District Attorney W. W.
Ray, filed suit in the United States
district court asking for a complete
dissolution of the relations, alleged to
be existing between the two lines.
The government also seeks to enjoin
the Southern Pacific company from,
voting Central Pacific stock or deriving any profit from that line pending
disposition of the suit and asks that
the Central Pacific be enjoined from
recognizing the Southern Pacific control.
The petition sets out that the Southern Pacific company owns and operates  the  "Sunset route,"  a joint rail
and water service between New York
and Pacific coast points in California i
and  Oregon,  consisting of the trans- i
Atlantic lines from New Orleans and j
Galveston and its railroad lineB, those

Osmyu Berry, commander
steamship Nantucket, charged with
negligence In the recent collision with
the steamship Monroe in which 41
lives were lost, listened today to Captain Edward E. Johnson, of the Monroe, testify before the local United
States inspectors of steam vessels
who will place the responsibility for
the accident. Captain Johnson was
on the stand all day,
Captain Berry pleaded not guilty today to the charges brought by the
government steamboat inspectors at
Norfolk. He was charged with failing to reduce the speed of his ship
to avoid the collision; failing to ascertain whether the wireless operator
was en duty and with being careless
in nut ascertaining by wireless whether any other vessels were close by
in ths fog.
It was brought out in the examination of Captain Johnson that he navigated the Monroe with a steering
compass that deviated as much as
two degrees from the standard magnet compass. He said the instrument
was sufficiently true and that it was
the custom of masters in the coastwise trade to use such compasses. His
compass, he testified, had never been
adjusted in the one year he was master of the Monroe.
The Monroe's captain testified that
the collision occurred in a fog.    The

City Defendant in Action Filed by St. Mungo Cannery���
Restrained from Proceeding With Pile Driving.
The first legal obstacle in connection with the harbor improvement
work was encountered yesterday when
Whiteside, Edmonds & Whiteside,
barristers, acting on behalf of Jame*
Anderson, of the St. Mungo Cannery
company, lesees of two waterfront
lots, filed a writ for unstated damages against the city.
Simultaneously with the filing of
the writ In the court registrar's office
an ex-parte application made before
Mr. Justice Morrison for an injunction restraining the contractors.
Waugh, Misiner & Bailey, from driving piles in front of the St. Mungo
lotB was granted and a few minutes
later the pile driving operations were
Only Temporary.
The itijuiction granted was only
temporary and on Monday motion for
a continuation will be made by W. J.
Whiteside. Messrs. McQuarrie. Martin & Cassady, city solicitors, will oppose the application.
The  ground  on   which  the  damage
notice of cancellation of Its lease to
the water lot* and this week the contractors for the harbor work placed
a pile driver at work in front of the
cannery wharf. ,\Vhen the notice cancelling the le,ae> was issued the company was,granted permission to retain its plant on the lots at the monthly rental of $134, subject, naturally,
to any trouble and inconvenience that
might arise through the construction
on the harbor work.
The plaintiff, James Anderson, contends that the lease, granted January
1. 1900, is good for ten years and the
city has no authority to cancel it at
this time. It is also held that if it
has any rights the city has not taken
proper steps to enforce them, no attempts being made to settle by arbitration.
Lease Illegal.
It is maintained by the city that
the lease given the cannery although
for ten years was illegal under the
corporate leases act which forbids the.
granting cf a lease beyond a term
of five    years.      The    lease    expired
suit  has  been   instituted  against the I January 1 under this act and the city
city is that the piles being driven and
tiie other harbor work planned to be
conducted in front of the cannery
water lots would prevent boats from
reaching the cannery wharf, and
therefore be detrimental to the company's business.
Served  Notice.
On   February  6    the    city    served
declined to renew it. The city also
takes the ground that tbe lease can
be terminated any day when it has
run beyond five years under the harbor bylaw.
On the result of this case will depend a great deal the course to be
followed by other water lot lesees
placed in similar circumstances.

that todays distribution was to be

The promise of Francisco Villa, rebel Mexican leader,
to execute the bandit Castillo and all his gang is one of the
most striking proofs received for some time of the inability of the Mexican people to govern themselves and the
impossibility of classing them as a civilized nation.
Villa, should the constitutionalists succeed in ousting
Huerta, is certain to be a power in the unhappy republic
and here he is found giving a sweeping undertaking to put
to death a score or more men, who, it is true, are accused
of an atrocious, wholesale crime, but who have not been
proven guilty.
To make the impression more complete, Villa tells
where the prisoners will be taken, if captured, and how
they will be executed. From his proposals it would seem
that the affair is to partake of the nature of a diplomatic
afternoon tea. ''Every American and every Mexican will
be invited to attend," hi says because, having failed to
make good his promise to protect Americans during his
campaign, he wishes to vindicate himself, the proposed
vindication to take the form of a shambles, with an aggregation of unconvicted men as the victims.
That is a sample of the government and administration
of justice that may be expected in Mexico should Huerta
be displaced by Carranza.
If Villa thought that the execution of twenty of his
closest friends would guarantee him the lasting friendship
of the United States, the lives of those friends wouldn't

Judging from the freedom with which he talks on political subjects, King Gustave of Sweden seems to have

There are only twenty-three thousand, four hundred

In his speech from the throne at the opening of the
British parliament, King George recommended, as a solution of the home rule difficulty, that all parties and creeds
sink their differences and heal up their sores. The idea
is a good one, though it hardly can be classed as original.
Senor Rubles Demons1 rated His Daring as a Matador.
Senor Enrique Ito'jlas, the eminent
Spanish specialist on bull-tighting,
has at last vindicated bis medest descriptions of bis own valo<-, and bas

bulls, not only of Vo-k County, but
of Peel as well, are mere empty bel-

For some time tbe bull-t_hting senor has been sighing Cor a suitable

The other day. however, Senor Ro-

tbe bulls would not offer themselves,
as It were, by their tcllowings, then
he would go out and look for them
himself. He obtained a motor car
and took with him seven of his staff.
Finally tbe motor came to the Price

An Exciting Operation That Wat Repaid by Gratitude.
When one of the tigers iu the zoological gardens in Dublin was treated
for gangrene lu Its paw, Itev. Samuel
llaugbton. M. I)., undertook to perform tbe dangerous experiment ot
operating on the animal.
The mate of tbe tiger was first secured in a side den. A net devised by
Professor llaugbton was thrown ovet
the tiger, aud he was drawn forward
to the door of tbe cage. Four stout
keepers then held the feet of the
struggling animal, while Professor
llnugbtou cut away the diseased
Tbe suffering beast furiously but
vainly tried to get at him during the
operation, but the ruge of the tigress
looking on through tbe bars of the
side den was much more terrible to
behold. She roared and violently
flung herself against the barriers in
ber mad desire to go to the rescue of
her mate.
When tbe tigress was admitted to
the cage after the wound of ber mate
bad been dressed she turned up tbe
paw and examined it with touching
solicitude nnd then licked her mate
us a cut licks her kittens to soothe
them, purring softly tbe while.
Hut perhaps the most extraordinary
part of the affair was the sequel. A
week later Professor llaugbton was
again at the zoo to see bow his patient was getting on. Wheu the animal espied him be began to purr like
a cat, allowed him to examine the
paw nnd seemed pleased that be
should do so. Indeed, for years afterward the tiger and tigress showed
themselves most friendly und grateful
to Professor Haughton.���Westminster

Model   Tenement  Plan  Checks  Tub-
berculosis in Congested Districts
of New York.
New York,  Feb. 11.���A year of experience  in   isolating  in  model  tenements families that have been niadu
dependent  by   tubercular    condition!*
among their members, has proved a
success, not only In the treatment of
the disease, but in working to a marked extent the social economic rehabilitation of the families, according to u
report made public today  by the  association for improving the condition
of the poor,  which conducted tho experiments.     The   view   Is   expressed
that  a  way   has  been   found   ln  this
mode of home treatment to prevent
'the spread of tuberculosis, in congest-
ed districts and to reduce the cost to
i the  community  cf  caring  adequately
! for families whose dependency is ths '
j result of consumption.
In a home  hospital, established   in
; the   Vanderbilt   model   tenement.   27
��� families,  79 members of which  were
tubercular, lived a full year, the report,
says,   in   sanitary  homes,  had  ample
j sunshine and fresh air, good and abundant nourishment, freedom from undue
1 work and  worry, reasonable segrega-
j tion. skillful  medical care and oonst-
jant   nursing   supervision.     Eleven   of
(these families contained 23 tubercular*
patients, 12 of whom were wage earn-
iers, were discharged during the year.
Six of the 11 families were rehabilitated   physically, socially and  econoxnic-
' ally    The other five had to be dlsmlss-
i ed for persistent intemperance or re-
' fusal to follow advice.   The conditions
' of these, however, as a consequence
iof   the   treatment   received,   was   improved.
No new cases of tuberculosis devel-
1 oped  after  admission.    Sixty-one   per
' cent  of  the   adult  patients   wen-   apparently cured, 22 per cent had their
disease arrested and 11 per cent wero
much   Improved.     In  only  four eases
j was there no progress.    The improvement  of  the   66  children   and   I'i   infants was also satisfactory.  Eighteen
of  these  were  consumptive,  23   were
suspicious  cases  and   most    of    the
others  were excellent candidates   for
the disease.    At the end of six months
each child had reached a weight normal for its age.

Taxes are a superior lien upon all mortgaged property. Heal
estate may he sold for taxes,
leaving the careless holder of a
bond and mortgage with no security. Insurance may be allowed to lapse; then, should a
fire occur the mortgage holder
has only the bare prouncl security. Methodical attention
absolutely averts these dangers.
The maker of the mortgage
may default in his Interest payments. Here again experience,
and skill are needed to properly
conduct a foreclosure. Much
money has been hist and many
titles have been Impaired
through lack of skill and ev-
perlence In such matters.
You cannot afford to be without cur services, an interview

own recognizance on suspended sentence."
Mr. Webster���There is another indictment against Neuanthal, my lord,
for malicious destruction of property,
and he is not on bail.
The court���Taking into consideration the medical certificate, and the
opinion 1 have, I am prepared to let
Neuanthal out. I was not aware that
there was another charge against him.
But a proper and reasonable ball can
be determined now. Under those circumstances, as soon as that can be
done. (To Neuanthal) If you come
before me 1 will arrange your bail. In
view cf what 1 have said 1 will let
him out on his own recognizance for
a thousand dollars to appear for trial.
Commends Police.
The Court���Mike Lynam: On behalf
of appeals���at least appeals made in
your behalf, and inquiries which 1
myself have made concerning you, in
which 1 might tell you that the police
authorities have assisted me very
materially, notwithstanding the uncharitable attitude that some elements take against the constables. 1
hope you will give them that little
credit. They are there to protect you
and the rest of the public. 1 understand your wife is broken in health,
and is affected by your Incarceration,
and from Information 1 have in regard
to yourself also. 1 feel justified In
your case in letting you out on suspended sentence.
Sympathy fcr Family.
Mike Metro: in regard to you also:
I am more moved by the condition of
your family, who, 1 have been informed, were you still to remain much
longer in custody might be chargeable,
on the public, and it is after all they
that are punished, aud not you. From
your appearance 1 inn quite confident
that you will not abuse what 1 am
doing on this occasion, und that you
will at least give the courts and
crown the small credit of trying, not
to punish you al all.
Ills lordship then went on speaking
to each miner as he was discharged.
There were some for whom no appeals had been made, but he would
make no exceptions. There was Wallace, his mother's only support, Robinson with eight children, Rogers with
a family in straightened circumstances, for each he gave a reason for
the action he took, although he simply-
said to John Hall, "You may go."
Following the freeing of the four-
tien miners, Mr. Leighton said:
"There is one other man, Bartolomeo.
who was convicted of unlawful assembly, and who having uo friend in
Extension was unable to get bail.'"
The Court���Well, I have not yet
considered any of the Extension people. 1 hav�� taken the ladysmith
cases, and in respect to Purss, in regard to whom 1 had very strong
recommendation from the authorities,
and a statement as to bis character. 1
was sure that in Purss' case that the
very fact ho was arrested and tried,
and from Ills make-up, that it was apparently sufficient punishment; but
the Kxtension cases I have not considered them. I am taking them into
consideration. The crimes that are
committed at Kxtension were so unjustifiable and so atrocious that I
have some hesitation in considering
anybody concerned in them as yet.

Indications point to a record turnout at the 104th regiment smoker In

on rare occasions when cards such as

circles over the event is running high.
Not only has a splendid list of
events been arranged, that in itself
would prove the drawing card of the

will be seen in the ring, not with the
gloves, bui as a referee of the main
bout.   Murphy has been chasing Willie

something to say to tbe fans on this

It Is Service That Backs Up
Advertising Mo&t Successfully
In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store." "We pay the clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.

Extensive Experiments to Be Carried
on���Schools to  Plant Camphor
The possibilities of the production
of camphor in the Philippines are to
be tried on a large scale hy the
bureau of forestry with the assistance of the bureau of education, says
an exchange. Preliminary investigations have been going on for the past
two years and practical experiments
will soon be made In every part of
the archipelago.
A large supply of seeds will soon
be in the possession of the bureau of
forestry. These will be planted as
rapidly as possible. The provincial
board of Uccos Notre has arranged to
push tbe culture of camphor In every
municipality in that province. Ilocos
Sur is also joining in the movement.
The bureau of education, which was
so successful with the corn campaign,
is to assist by having schools throughout the Islands plant camphor trees
on Arbor day.
According to information compiled
by a forester in the bureau of
forestry, says the Manila Cable News,
"5 per cent, of the world's supply of
camphor in 19uS was furnished by
Formosa and the remainder by Japan
and China. Tbe Japanese governmen
has greatly encouraged the camphor
industry by offering inducements in
the way of land and bonuses to growers of the trees.
The bulk of the output of camphor
is used in the manufacture of celluloid, of which are made substitute?
for ivory and tortoise-shell, knife
handles, billiard balls, piano keys
combs, soap boxes, and novelties, beside:; its use as medicine and for ex
eluding moths. Celluloid contains ae
high as 30 per cent, of camphor. The
manufacture of smokeless powder also
consumes large eiuantities of this product.
other countries are interesting
themselves in the cultivation of cam
phor. India, German Kast Africa, Algeria, and the United States are
planting trees. In the United States.
California and Florida have extensive
areas now  under cultivation
F. C. T. O'Hara Is Depntj Minister ot
Trade and Commerce.
The head of the c caular servic*
of Canada is Francis Charles Trench

function. Possibly one reasou why

c are too modest to speak of our
commercial agents rs consuls. In certain important legal senses of tb*
word these representatives of Canada
In foreign lands do not stand on the
same footing as the consuls of Gre*t
Britain or of any other independent
state. But in a very large sense tbat
Is what they really are. There ars
some twenty-six of t'.ese officers, and
they represent tbe merchants and
farmers and manufacturers of Canada,
in widely sunderet. parts of tbe ea.lb.
They are officers of the Department of
Trade and Commerce; and tbe Deputy
Minister of that Department is Mr.
Though the most outstanding, tbia
be&dshlp of tbe consular service i*
after all mly one of the functions of
Mr. O'Hara. He also controls tb*
branch of the Government service
which numbered the people. Under
the Liberal regime tbe census was
made by tbe Department of Agriculture; but when Hon. George B. Foster came In, he relieved tbe Hon. Marti i Bu.rell of this part of hia work.
There was a eooi deal of justification
for so doing, too, because jrlculture
was a heavy department and trade-
and commerce a rather light one. At
the same time it is to be remembered
tbat Mr. Foster also lightened bte
labors by transferring the Government Annuities to the Postoffice.
That, however, is just by the way.
What concerns us here Is that Mr.
O'Hara is now responsible for tbe
smooth working of the tabulation >f
tbe people. He also supervises tho
payment of all bounties and steamship subsidies; administers the Grain
Act, which is the backjone of western

Ttu*  story' lerv tn England
At the Tkeatres
"The Necklace of Barneses," a thrilling play in three parts is the attraction at the Edison theatre today and
this, together with the usual comedy,
plays prove a good drawing card. The I
story of the necklace is as follows:
when his daughter, the Princess
fcmeena, died, Barneses, the Egyptian
Pharaoh, placed a necklace about her
neck and swore, thnt whoever took it
thence should never rest in peace until
it was returned. Some thousands of
years later, Ameena's mummy was
unpacked in the New York art museum and the necklace discovered.
The news of the discovery of the price-
less relic reached the ears of a band
(-.[thieves and "Diamond Mary" was
dispatched to steal the necklace, bhe
was successful in her mission but the
tremendous sensation caused by tbe
theft made it absolutely impossible to
dispose of the jewels in America Accordingly Mary sailed for England
where she was joined by "English
Tim" an accomplished criminal. Detective lmbert was engaged by the
museum to conduct the search for the
missing necklace.
lmbert followed Mary to Kngland
nnd had her arrested, but not before
she had given the necklace to her confederate. The pair escaped to Paris
nnd there lmbert had "English Jim
arrested with equally futile results.
Then lie followed them to \ enlce
where they overpowered him after an
exciting chase in gondolas. Then to
Uo-mo. where "English Jim" paid the
penalty of his til-spent lite by falling
from a root' In an attempt to escape
the relentless sleuth. How lmbert
gave up the chase in Naples and how
be finally recovered the gems in New
Vork there is not Bpace to tell. Nor
is there room lo describe the wonderful historic settings in which so many
of the scenes are laid. We can only
mention Notre Dame in Paris, the
Grand Canal, the Campanile and the
Doge's Palace in Venice, the Forum,
the Collosseum  and  St.   Peter's.

robbery mystery of this city in which1
so many thousands of dollars were
stolen, but my present work forbids
it. 1 have turned by hand to play-
writing and find it not only a pleasant occupation but a profitable one.
It has been seven years since I dropped or finished toy last case, which
was that Of Mr! Holmes of Chicago.
whom you will remember as one who
murdered so many people there for
their lnrurance money. He seemed to
have a mania for trying to destroy
t'.ie bodies with lime and bury them In
the basement of bis residence In Chicago. It was a hard case and required
months to trap him, and then it was
onlv through a lost letter that we got
the trip at an altitude of 10,000 feet
in 11! or 15 hours. The attempt to
cross the ocean will be under the auspices of the Aero club of America
Although Mr. Curtis has been work-'
ing on the machine for several months ,
the announcement came only yesterday in the form of a letter from  Mr.
Wanamaker to Alan It. llawley, president ol  the Aero club.
The flight will be made in the interest of science and in the interest
of world peace. Mr. Wanamaker says
in his letter. "The crossing of the
Atlantic in one flight of an aircraft
is on my mind as important to aerial
navigation as was the voyage of Columbus to transportation by water.
Once the Atlantic is crossed in a
single flight of an airship there will
soon follow regular trans-Atlantic
trips and a fixed safe trans-Atlantic
passenger air line.
Although the purpose of the flight
as announced by Mr. Wanamaker has
nothing to do with prize winning, the
air voyagers, if successful, will win
the Lord Northcliffe prize of $50,000.
The co-operation of the governments
of the United States and Great Britain
and of the Royal Aero club of England
will be sought.
Lieut. Porte, a skillful English flyer
was one of the first to be taken into
tiie secret and it is understood that
he will be one of the fliers. He has
been practicing With one of the Curtis flying boats for several months on
the English channel. One of the
United States navy officers mentioned
as the possible companion of Lieut.
1'orte Is Lieut. John H. Towers, who
holds the world's hydro-aeroplane distance and duration record with a non-1
stop over-water flight of 392 miles in
six hours and ten  minutes.
The machine for the over-ocean trip
will be known as the Rodman Wanamaker Trans Atlantic Flier and will
resemble a very large Curtis flying
boat. A tractor screw in front of the
machine will be used instead of the
propellor usually seen in the Curtis
flying boats.
The bull is torpedo shaped and al- j
most entirely enclosed, so that In case I
Of accident it. will float without danger of swamping for days. The 200-
horse power motor will be Installed
in the bow and will be readily accessible to the operators who will be
able to make adjustments during the
flight, All the controls will be in
duplicate so that the machine may
he handled by both men in unison or
by  either  one.
