BRANT ROCK, Mass., Aug. 6. Sailing
above the clouds and over 225 miles of
panoramic, land and water from New
York City and landing today at the lit
tle '' seafthore resort of Brant Rock
near the historic town of Plymouth, Dr.
Julian P. Thomas of New York and Roy
Knabonnhue, a professional aeronaut, made
one of the moot successful trips yet un
dertaken In this country, " and learned
much. It Is believed, that will aswlst In
the development of atrial 'navigation. Dr.
Thomas said that tho trip from every
point of view waa the most successful he
has yet accomplished. The balloon was
undamaged, but Aeronaut Knahenxhue was
cut slightly during the final descent' at i
this place. "Otherwise nothing marred
the flight. . .
The voyage was made with one- stop
and that ..a voluntary one ' at Noauk,
Conn., .early this morning where by the
eM -of a ' neW-guidS "rope v.I)r. Tiiomaa

aeronauts landed at Brant RocU at 11:30
this forenoon and as they left New York
at midnight lat-t night , they were nearly
twelve hours on their trip.

testing two. new appliance., a guide rope

YarhtlnK Party Astonished.
TAm ascent In New York was made
fJRhnut mishap at midnight. The bal
loon rose high over New York city and
sailed over Long Island sound. After
several miles a thick fog swept over the
sound and the aeronauts were unable to
tell whither they were drifting. By the
use of his guide rope Dr. Thomas brought
the car nearer earth and from the blasts
of the fog horns .knew he was still over
the waters of the sound. Off Rrlilgeport,
Conn., attracted by one of the whistling
craft Dr. Thomas brought his airship still
closer to the water and- astonished the
member of a yachting party by hailing
them from amidst the darkness. From
them he learned his exact position and
then quickly resumed his ' Journey.
At about 5, o'clock .this morning the
outlines of land could be made out through
the fog and by the aid of his new de
vices oC water anchor and guide ripe Dr.
Thomas landed gently at Noank. Conn.
The voysgers had breakfasted and were
so enthuslastlo over .the success of their
trip, which at this iolnt had been of about
140 miles, that they decided to continue on

released from Its anchorage the big bag
shot up In the air to a height not hitherto
reached, and far above the fog bank that
still hung over the water. Long Island
sound was gradually left behind and the
balloon soared over the hills and meadows
of Rhode Island. Desirous of further test

WYOMING MAN RUNS' AMUCK
Jack Williams Shoots Woman . and
Then Shoots Man Who
Arrests Him. f
CASPER. Wyo.. Aug. .(Special Tele
gram.) Jack Williams shot Mrs. John
Adams this morning at her home four
miles east of Casper.
; The bullet entered" her right, arm , and
passing through penetrated her breast. The
woman Tan to , the barn where she con
cealed Herself ''In the hay mow until Wil
liams left, the place. She ..then summoned
I a neighbor who brought her to town and
I her wounds were dreesed - It Is Impos
sible to say at this time whether her
wounds will prove fatal or not. '..'...
After shooting the woman Williams went
to a hay camp near by and told what
he had done and a young man In the field
, to up a truggle enwled
between trum. . In the attempt to over-
power Williams the young man was shot
twice, one shot taking effect n his wrist
and the other In his hip. but undaunted
by his wounds he knocked Williams down,
him. They have not yet reached town
tied his hands and feet and relieved him
of his six-shooter. The Wounded man, I
whose name has not been learned, came
to town leaving Williams in the hay field,
where the sheriff and his deputy found
with the prisoner. -
The refusal of Mrs. Adams to marry him
Is said to have been the cause of Wil
liams' first crime thjs morning. Wil
liams has made the Adams home his pis -a
of residence for the past three' years.
Mrs. Adams was left a widow about two
months ago by her husband's suicidal
death. ' John Adams went home from town
one day and, as was reported at the cor
oner's Jury, shot and killed hitnself in
his room.' Jealousy ' was said . to have
been the cause of Adams' act. Wil
liams has been resident of this county for
a number of years and was divorced from
his wife here four years ago.

Oreat Bitterness. .
CHICAGO. Aug. If today's develop

come, there will undoubtedly be some lively
times In the convention hsll of the Inter
national Brotherhood of Tesmsters before
final sdjournment. The fourth snnual con
vention of this organization began here to
day In a bewilderment of electioneering
for the presidency and so bitter did the
feeling grow between the different factions
that It was necessary to call the police to
maintain order. The contending factions
sre headed by President C. P. Shea, who
Is seeking re-election, and Albert Young,
formerly president of the organization. Two
personal encounters took place on the
stairway leading to the condition hall at
145 Randolph street. Thomas Martin, one
of the leaders of the New York delega
tion, which Is opposed to Shea, became
Involved In an argument with some of
Shea's followers. Blows followed and when
the police arrived In answer to a hurry
up call Martin wss lying unconscious on
the floor, while one of Rhea's adherents
sat astride his chest beating him In the
face with both fists. Several arrests were
made, but those arrested, were released
later on bonds.

Soon after this fight John Buckley of
Boston, an admirer of Shea, became too
eloquent In his advocacy of Shea to suit
some of Young's friends, and another fight
resulted. The police were on the alert,
however, and before much damage was
