Aviator Makes Tiip From Albany
to New York.
Makes One Short Stop Near Pough
keepsle and After Intermission of
One Hour Resumes Trip High Over
Hudson Paulhan's Feat Eclipsed In
All Except Distance.
New York, May 30. Glenn II. Cur
t!s flew from Albany to New York
city In an aeroplane, winning the ?10,
O00 prize offered by the New York
World. He covered the distance of
137 miles In two hours and thirty
ealnutes, and came to earth as calmly
nd lightly as a pigeon. His avcrago
peed for the distance 54.00 miles an
hour surpaBses any record over
made by an aeroplane in long dlstanco
flight, and in its entirety his feat per
haps eclipses anything man has at
tempted in qn bcavler-than-alr ma
chine. The start was made from Albany at
7:03 a. m., under weather conditions
ss nearly perfect as the moBt fastid
ious aviator could demand'. Ono hour
and twenty-three minutes later ho
had made his stopping placo near
FoughkecpBlo, whoro thoro was an
hour's intermission. Resuming his
flight at 0:23, ho sped Bonthward and
landed within the boundary of Man
hattan island at 10:36. Only 100 yards
north of the point on which his craft
nettled stretched Spuyten Duyvil
creek, separating Manhattan island
from the mainland. Had ho failed to
cross this, his flight would' havo been
In vain, but as ho swept over it the
prize was his. Thence to Governor's
iBlnnd his tusk was easy, and tho con
cluding lap of a race already won.
Paulhan's flight from London to
Manchester ISC miles exceeded tho
Curtlss feat In distance, but not in
speed and danger. The Frenchman's
average was 44.3 miles un hour, nnd
below him lay English meadowland.
Curtlss followed tho winding course
of tho historic HudBon. He swung
high over tho gTent bridge at Pough
keepsle, dipped nt times within fifty
feet of tho river's broad Burface, and
joekejed like a falcon at the turns.
Only .once did his craft Bhow signs
of rebellion. This was off Storm
King, near West Point, whero at a
height of nearly 1,000 feet, a treach
erous gust struck his planes, The ma
chine dropped like a rock for forty
feet, and tilted perilously, but Curtlss,
always cool, kept both his hold nnd his
seat, 'and by adroit manipulation of
his levers, brought renewed equilib
rium to his steed.
No Maneuvering.
Curtlss nrose from the ground like
a rocket. There were no preliminary
maneuvers. The aeroplane ran hur
riedly over the surface of the Island
and' darted straight for Its goal to the
southward, turning once for a moment
to hold a level pace and' then to rise
Again to further levels. Perhaps 700
leet would be a conservative estimate.
Curtlss was flying at n height which
ho had never attempted before In his
life. In three minutes he wns a -minute
speck in the distance. In seven
minutes he vanished from sight The
whole performance was ovrr in a
Illinois Senator Accused of Paying
Bribe for Lorimer Denies Charges.
Chicago, May 31, State Senator
John Broderick, indicted by the San
eatnon county grand Jury, charged
with giving a bribe of $2,530 to State
Senator Holtslaw to vote for Larimer
for United States senator, surren
dered himself to Deputy Sheriff Long.
"I deny absolutely all charges made
against me by Senator Holtslaw of
luka. 1 am Innocent of any wrong
doing in the legislature," snld Mr.
Broderick. "1 have never received
nor given any money In connection
with the election of Senator Lorimer
nor with any other election. I expect
a fair and impartial hearing in the
Sangamon county court, and before
the grand' Jury there, I am going there
without any fuss. I have not been
evading the officers here. I have al
ways been willing to go to Springfield
and tell anything I know. But I don't
ltnow what I can say that will help
them there."
Broderick, together with Stanton C.
Pemberton and Representative Joseph
8, Clark, appeared before Judge
Creighton, and gave bonds.

Representatives of Western
Cities Gail on Attorney General,
Government Asked to Intervene at
Once to Prevent Raise In Rates and
Prosecute Western Trunk Llne Un
der Sherman Act Attorney General
Asks Many Questions. -
Washington, May 31. The culmina
tion of the nction of the shippers'
meeting held in Omaha on May 24
came when a committee appointed at
that meeting, accompanied by many
senators and representatives from Ne
braska, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota,
Wisconsin and Illinois, had a confer
ence with Attorney General Wicker
sham, at which the committee pre
sented to the bead of the department
of Justice an urgent appeal that the
machinery of that department be set
In motion under the terms of the Sher
man act to dissolve the association of
railroads known as the Western Trunk
Line compnny and to enjoin the rail
roads and their agentB from putting
into effect nnd collecting the advances
promulgated by the association
through its agent, W. H. Hosmer of
Tho appeal of the shippers was pre
sented by Hon. William Duff Haynle
of Chicago, counsel for the Illinois
Manufacturers association. He repre
sented that the obnoxious tariffs were
to become effective June 1 and that
shippers despaired of getting any ac
tion undor the Interstate commerce
law, slnco that action would neces
sarily Involve complaint, hearing and
argument, nnd consequently long do
lay. Tho advances of June 1, he said,
would follow numerous other advances
that had been made since the Hepburn
law took effect, and the unanimous
expression of the meeting of shippers
at Omaha wns to the effect that it
would be impossible for the producers,
manufacturers and consumers to benr
this additional burden.
Attorney General Urged to Act.
For this reason and for the reason
that both houses of congress had re
fused to exempt rnllroads from the
operation of tho Sherman law, the
shippers,, finding railroads deaf to
their appeals, decided to invoke the
power conferred on tho attorney gen
ernl by tho terms of that statute to
prosecute combinations In restraint of
It was urged upon tho attorney gen
eral that in the famous Transmlssourl
Freight association case the federal
courts had perpetually enjoined, all. ui mm uBnuL-jiiuuu uuui iruin
continuing their conspiracy and from
entering Into any similar conspiracy
In the future. Inasmuch as a number
of the defendants enjoined In that pro
ceeding are members of the trunk
line company, It wnB strongly repre
sented that If that company wns shown
to be In a conspiracy those roads were
In contempt of the federal courts.
By request of the attorney general,
the members of the shippers' commit
tee remained after the departure of
senators and representatives to dis
cuss with him In detail the basis of
the complaint he was asked to file and
evidence that would be forthcoming
in support of the allegations that
would necessarily be embodied In such
a bill. This discission was continued
for quite two hours.
Official Delves Into Details.
The attorney general was deeply in
terested in the presentations made by
the traffic experts and, not content
with covering fully the ground on the
conspiracy question, drew them out on
the reasonableness of the proposed ad
vances, the possible Justification of
them and the feeling ot the shipping
public with regard to them. The traf
fic men were unanimous and emphatic
in the statement that, based on all
their investigations and the records
of the railroads themselves, the ad
vances were unjustified and unreason
able, and that they expressed the feel
ing of all communities they repre
sented when they stated that the ad
vance should not be put into effect.
At the termination of tho confer
ence, the attorney genera.l expressed
himself as being gratified over the in
formation furnished him and stated
the appeal of the shippers would be
given most careful consideration.
As evidencing the grave importance
to Omaha and other communities on
the Missouri river of the advances nl
ready made, E, J. McVann gave the at
torney general a brief statement of
the packing house situation, showing
tnnt in 1909, 110,000 cars of produce
from the packing houses on the Mis
souri river were shipped to Chicago
and the east. On this business the ad.
vance of 5 cents per hundred weight
recently made would have amounted
to a minimum of $10 per car, or con
jlderably over $1,000,000.
