Thinks Airships Will be General.
A. L. Klllian , xvho was ono of the
spectators at the Chicago aviatloi
meet Tuesday afternoon when two 01
the flyers were killed , believes thai
the time is comparatively near at bane
when aeroplanes will actually be
brought into general use by the lay
man , Just as automobiles are now.

automobiles out for the airship flights
and I saw four horses , " Mr. Kllllai
said. It occurred to him that in tin
not very distant future the auto woulc
bo relegited to the rear by the aero
plane , Just as the horse has gone be
fore the march of the auto.
"It looks perfectly simple and easy , '
Mr. Killlan paid. "They get in , turn i
wheel and soar Into the air like birds
It looks as easy as running an auto
mobile. They glide along about the
height of a man's head , then rise te
tremendous altitude , then dip and sal
and glide. It looks remarkably easj
and everybody with any nerve at al
wants to go up. One Chicago alder
man bought a plane for $4,500 for general
oral use. I like the monoplanes bettei
than the biplanes. " At one time he
saw nine airships flying simultaneous
