In Row Over Aero Flight.
Fremont , Nob. , Aug. 15. Aviator
Walsh's failure both Friday and Satur
day to give a satisfactory flight at the
driving park disgusted the committee
and caused it to take such drastic ac
tion that legal proceedings are threat
ened. Chairman Wolz on Saturday
evening , following Walsh's little ex
hibition flight off Into a cornfield from
which ho failed to return , told the
manager of the man-bird that Fremont
was through with him and officially
called off the program that had been
arranged for Sunday afternoon.
Walsh's manager promptly announc
ed that he would combat any such
drastic measures and arranged to give
a free exhibition. The free exhibition
was pulled oft late Sunday afternoon
before a crowd of several hundred people
ple nnd proved somewhat better than
either of the previous two , which were
pronounced by the local committee
and hundreds of spectators to have
been rank failures.
Efforts to make a financial - settlement
ment with Walsh have been In prog
ress. The committee nas paid him
$250. It refuses to give any more , be
ing Intent upon saving the balance of
the receipts to apply to a free exhibi
tion of flying later In the season , as a
means of recompensing the many people
ple who were disappointed with this
Committee Was Deceived.
Chairman Wolz of the committee
declared this morning that he and the :
other members had been badly fooled
by Walsh's advance agent. They were
given to understand that Walsh was a
noted aviator who was on his way to
the International meet at Chicago and
that ho would bo available to Fremont
only through the Incident of his findIng ,
Ing a few spare days on his hands while
enronto across the country from Cali
fornia to Chicago. Mr. Wolz and oth :
ers of Hie committee believed that
they had heard of Aviator Walsh.
Now they are Inclined to think that It
was A. L. Walsh , who has Just broken
a world's record In the Chicago meet.
They have noted that Aviator Walsh
seems to he making no effort to reach
Chicago in order to participate In the
? 100,000 prize meet there.
Saturday Flight a Poor One.
Walsh made one flight Saturday
afternoon , going "P to a height of per
haps fifty feet nnd soaring off to the
north. Ho was visible for perhaps
half a mile to those who were at the
park. Then ho disappeared. The
crowd waited for an hour or more and
then commenced to disperse. It was
believed the aviator would come back
to the park , but he did not do It. It
wns loomed that he had landed In n
coinfleld and wns tumble to arise
Farmer Captures Biplane.
Because ho alighted with his ma
chine In a cornfield after the only
flight he mndo Saturday afternoon ,
Aviator Charles Walsh became in
volved In n suit for damages In dis
trict coutt today. Arthur Johnson ,
owner of the Held , wnnts $100 for the
corn he alleges Walsh's machine ruin
ed. The suit Is against the Pacific
Aviation company , which manages
Walsh's flights. At Johnson's request
Judge Hollenbeck Issued a writ of at
tachment against the biplane and the
rtlflclal bird Is now held In captivity
> y Deputy Sheriff Condlt.
The suit opens a new and rather
inlquo Held of litigation. It Is prob-
lily the first of Us kind.
It was said late this afternoon that
lannger Manning would make a setb
lenient with Mr. Johnson , paying the
damages. Ho is anxious to get away

THAT VIRGINIA SCANDAL.
Story of the Tragedy In Which Mrs.
Seattle Lost Her Life.
Chesterfield , Va. . Aug. 15. The
whole countryside is talking about
the coming trial of Henry Clay Beat-
tie , Jr. , for the murder of his wife. He
was Indicted yesterday ,
The courtroom was packed when
sCircuit Judge Watson took his seat on
the bench , but there was not a woman
alBeulah Blnford , the "woman In the
acase , " sat in an adjolnig anteroom
waiting to be called as n witness.
I Beulnh Ulnfoid wns not called before -
fore the Jury ns a witness. Neither
was Paul Beattle , cousin of the actl
ctised man , who snys he purchased the
gun with which Mrs. Boattlo Is supposed -
posed to have been killed , at the Instance -
stance of the lattcr's husband.
The Indictment covers broadly nil
degrees of homicide from murder in
the first degree to manslaughter.
Many Unusual Features.
The history of the crime with which
Henry Clay Benttle , Jr. , hns boon
charged contains many features ot un
usual Interest. The accused , who Is
now about 2C years of ago , Is the son
of Henry Clay Beattlo , sr. , a well-to-do
business man of this city. Young
Beattle received a fair education nnd ,
at an early age , began to Indulge in a
fast nnd reckless life. About four
years ago he became acquainted with
Beulah Blnford , a handsome girl ,
who , at that time , was not quite 14.
Her child was adopted by Mrs. Mary
Trout of Richmond , but it died In July
of last year. Young Beattlo Induced
Bt-ulah Hinford to go to Raleigh , N.
C , . where she promised to remain , so
ns not to Interfere with Beattlo's mar
More to please his father , upon
whom he depended for a living , young
Beattlo about two years ago married
Miss Louise Owen , the pretty daugh
ter of a resident of Dover , Del. The
marriage was not happy. A few
months ago Beattle met the Blnford
girl by accident nt a baseball game at
Norfolk , and she was easily induced
to return to Richmond.
Beattie and the girl met frequently.
Beattle's father learned of the affair
and Is said to have threatened his son
with the withdrawal of his support.
In the second week of July last young
Mrs. Beattie , with her baby , went to
visit her uncle , Thomas A. Owen , with
in a mile of South Richmond. She
| was to return home on July 19. On the
evening of July IS young Beattie came
to Mr. Owen's house In his automobile
to take his wife out for a ride. They
left , driving along the Midlothian pike.
About 11 o'clock that night Beattlo
returned to Mr. Owen's house In his
auto , steering with one hand , while he
has holding his wife's lifeless body
with the other.
His Story Not Believed.
Beattle said that his wife had been
shot and killed with a shotgun by a
tall man with a long beard , who had.
held them up , while they were driving
along the Midlothian pike. The case
called for an Investigation by the cor
oner and after a long and quite sensa
tlonal hearing the coroner's Jury gave
the verdict that Mrs. Beattle had been
shot and killed with a shotgun In the
hands of her husband , Henry Clay
Beattle , Jr. The latter was arrested
and lodged In the Henrlco county Jail ,
where he spent his time unconcerned
The Blnford girl was arrested as a
possible accomplice. Since his Impris
onment Beattle stuck to his original
story , but his position became serious
when Paul Seattle , a poor relative ol
the accused , confessed that he hac !
bought for the prisoner the shotgun
with which the murder had been com
mltted. The state bss succeeded in
forging a strong chalrf of clrcumstan
tlal evidence against Beattle.

NO AMERICAN CARDINAL.

titled to Only One.
Rome , Aug. IT. . The pliyalclann

eptlble. Ills temperature was slight-
y below that of the night , during
htch It was 98.7. The weather wan
ooler and the patient was moro cheer-
The pontiff sat up again and Dr.
'etaccl and Dr. Marchefava suggested
hat ho remain longer In his arm
hair , as they thought this position
elped to restore his strength.
After seeing Cardinal Merry Del Val ,
lie papal secretary ot state , and Mon-
Ignor Blsieti , major dome of the vatl-
an. the pope asked for Cardinal Do
. .al , secretary of the conslstorlal con-
regatlon , with whom ho wished to
Iscuss several questions relating to
he church In America.
The reports from the United Statofl
hat Archbishop James Edward Quig-
ey of Chicago , had been elevated to
tie cardlnalate arc stated to bo
wholly unfounded. The pope , It Is an-
erted , has never considered holding
a consistory for such a purpose.
It is generally known that because
f this year's celebrations of the Jubl-
ee of Italian unity , a consistory would
lot be held before December at the
sarllest , while It Is more likely to bo
lold next year. At that time , al-
hough there are twenty-one vacancies
n the cardinalate , It t believed that
10 American will receive a red bat ,

hat country should have not more
ban one cardinal during the life of

From one end of the country to tha

At the docks only a portion of the
men returned to work and a good deal
of uneasiness prevailed as many of the
men refused to accept the settlement
arranged by their leaders. The same
description fits the situation at the
railway stations , where many of the
porters and carters are demanding
