TRAGIC ECHO IN AERIAL TEST
Old Langley Aeroplane to Be Uied in
Fort Myer Demonstration.
PIONEER IN AIR NAVIGATION
Repair of. Belle Recalls ad Experi
ence of Prof. ". P. l.analey,
Who Abaadoned Work Be
cause of Criticisms.
WASHINGTON, July 30-Thers is the
echo of a semi-tragic chapter In ballooning
In the tests of aerial craft to be begun at
Fort Myer by the government next meek.
The universal Interest which these tests
have aroused has resulted in the with
drawal .of. the veil of secrecy which has
been maintained by the officials of the
Smithsonian Institute In connection with
the aeroplane built by the late Prof. 8. P.
"If the .Wright Brothers and A. M. Her
ring should not succeed In carrying out
their contracts wjth the government It Is
not at all unlikely that we will bring out
tho old Langlry machine for the purpos
of . conducting experiments," said General
Allen, chief signal officer of the' army and
aeronautical enthusiast, today. Dr. Cyrus
Adler, acting secretary of the Smithsonian
Institute, which has the custody of the
Langley aeroplane, . the fBuxsard," has a
different opinion with regard to using the
machine for any further Investigations.
It Is a relic and should be preserved as
Such along with the others produced by
Prof. Langley, the pioneer of mechanical
flight," were his words. It Is said that
tha machine la the Joint property of the
army and the Smithsonian Institution.
Pioneer In Air Navigation.
Twenty years or more ago Prof. Lang
ley, a lending scientist, began experiments
at Pittsburg In an effort to master the
problem of atrial navigation. Thla man.
who was honored by tho lending scientific
bodies of France, England and other coun.
tries, was laughed at. He was criticised
by the newspapers at that time and scien
tists themselves were skeptical.
It was William Thaw, the Pittsburg
millionaire, and father Harry Kendall
Thaw, who made It possible for Prof.
Langley to carry on his experiments; ex
periments which gave to the world the
knowledge upon which the aeronauts of
the present day base their mechanisms.
It was Theodore Roosevelt, thf n assistant
secretary of the navy who. In 1SH8, was
responsible for the United States govern
ment devoting $rl,000 for the purpose, of
paying the expenses of the experiments,
which were conducted by Prof. Langley
on the Potomao river, near Washington.
It may devolve upon Theodore Roosevelt,
as president cf the United States, to make
It possible for further experiments with
the Lnngley aeroplane. Today, five years
after Prof. Langley launched his aeroplane
moctel. It Is recognlxed that his machine
embodies principles not fully understood
by the machine building aeronauts of to
day. Langley Machine Repaired.
The Lnngley aeroplane, the one which
was damaged on the launclilrg ways of the
Langley houseboat, has been repaired and
Is evidently In first class condition.
Prof, Langley was so disheartened by the
criticism and comment which followed his
disappointing experiments that he never
undertook further experiments with the ill-
fated machine. It was locked up In the
carpenter shop back of the Smithsonian
Institution, where It has remained since.
It had been shown to several leading
scientists and aeronautical experimenters.
but yesterday was the first time It was
ever' viewed by newspaper men at close
HOME RULE NEED OF THE CITY
Andrew Roaewatrr Tells Charter Re
vision Committee Views on Mu
Andrew Rosewater by request addressed
the charter revision committee Wednesdny
night on the subject of necessary changes.
He said the committee would probably find
few changes needed and gave warning
against making changes which would con
flict with other provisions of the charter.
"Ninety per cent of the taxes the people
of Omaha pay do not go directly for pub
llo Improvements," said Mr. Rosewater.
"Omaha pays to the state government a
larger amount than Is required for the sal
arlee of all city employes. No mbre money
is allowed for the repair of the streets
than was allowed twenty years ago, and
the taws governing are about ths same as
at that time.
"Tha city of Omaha Is paying about $2G0.
000 a year In Interest on bonds. This Is
about one-fourth of the annual expense.
Could not that larger expense he reduced
a little by some good management Instead
of spending so much time In trying to cut
down the expenses of the 10 per cent which
Is used In public Improvements.
"Every city of the metropolitan class
should be permitted to run Itself. That
Is tha way New Tork and St. Louis and
Kansas City and Ban Francisco have had
to work out their own destiny. It stands
to reason that Omaha should not be com
pelled to ask people from the Interior of
the state how to run Its affairs. To bring
about this scheme of home rule far Omaha
you must have an amendment to the con
stitution of tha state.
"It should be so arranged that the im
provements of the city could be carried
on without having to go to the legisla
ture for help every two years. A city
should have the rlfrht to sell Intersection
bonds when It Is evident all the people want
that Improvement. The city government
should have the right to Improve the
streets In the central part of the city
without waiting for a petition to be signed
by property owners who may reside In
New Tork or London. A provision should
be In the charter that when a street has
been paved for eighteen years 1 1 city could
repavs without petition."
The principal work of the comniltte dur
ing the evening was In adopting rules for
the government of the committee In Its de
liberations orver tha revision of the char
ter. The rules prepared by the sub-committee
were read and adopted with few
In addition to tha other crganlxations
which were previously admitted, tha com
mittee voted to give the Nebraska State
Railway Employee' Protective association
three delegatea on the committee.
It was also decided to allow represent
atives from any other civic organization
until next Wednesday night to present
their credentials, when they may be ad
mitted to membership by a majority vote.
The Central Labor union waa given six
delegates on tha committee Instead of
three, as was at first proposed.

BROOKLYN BANKERS SHORT
Two Official of Pavings Concern
Are Charged with Grand
NEW YORK. July 30. Two prominent
Brooklynltes. Edward Brltton, president
until yesterday of the Eagle Savings and
Loan company of that borough and
Quarantine Commlsnloner Frederick H.
Schroeder, second vice president until yes
terday of the same Institution, were ar
rested today after having been indicted on
a charge of grand larceaf. They were
arraigned before Judge Dike, who held each
In $10,000 ball. There are four Indictments
against each man. Both admit that they
took approximately $44,OuO of the cash ot
the company and used the money to keep
ths liomestake South' Eextension Mining
company, a South Dakota concern, upon Its
feet. This company was organised by Brlt
ton and Schroeder about three years ago.
The arrest of the bankers followed a grand
Jury Investigation earlier In the day.
The following statement was glvon out by
ths Eagle Havings and Loan company:
A discrepancy was discovered In the cash
amounting to HT.fM, for' which President E.
F. Brltton and Second Vice President E. II.
Scnroeder admitted responsibility In
amounts of $.!1 and $M.m4, respectively.
President Brltton has since made restitu
ilon to the amount of $4,001.
At a meeting of .the trustees of the com
pany held on the Hth, the resignations of
Messrs. Brltton and Schroeder were ac
cepted. As the surplus of the company
after deducting the above amount Is In
excess of $l3),nuo, the corporation is solvent
and will curjtlnue Its business.
Bank Examiner Young last week found
that Joseph Wood, secretary and treasurer
of the company, was carrying in the bank
numbers of checks signed by Brltton and
Schroeder. These checks were for varying
amouivts aggregating $47,96. When ' the
examiner demanded an explanation he was
told by Wood that he had been instructed
by his superior officers to hold the checks
and not to send them for collection to the
banks on which theV were drawn. But
meantime, he explained, he had paid out
the company's 'money on them. Further
probing showed that ' practically all the
checks In question were worthless. The
two bankers obtained bondsmen late today.

Yohi Woman Pound In
NEW YORK, July 30. In the finding of
the half charred body of a young woman
early this morning In an Isolated section
of Williamsburg,- Brooklyn, one of the
most atrocious and cunningly planned mur
ders that ' has been given to the police
to solve In many years was revealed.
Death was caused by a cut across the
throat and tliea .Vnsn endeavor to utterly
destroy all evidences of the crime, the
murderer Wrapper' the body In an oil
Soaked mattress, poured oil over tha vic
tim's clothing and set fire to the bundle.
A powerful acid had previously been
poured ove the face to obliterate the wom
an's features and 'make Identification Im
possible. Although two arrests have been made
the police do not believe they have In
custody any one who can shed any light
on the mystery. The prisoners are James
Ruddlck, an old man who lived In the
stable not far away from where the body
was found, and his son.
An Inquest was held tonight Into the
death of Barbara Relg, the young woman
whose bodywaa found In a shelter house
in Irving park, Williamsburg, Brooklyn,
on the morning of July 1, with a bulVt
wound In the head. The jury returned a
verdict to the effect that Miss Relg came
to licr death by her own hand.
Policeman David E. Slicllard, who has
confessed that he was with Miss Relg
when sha was shot, and has Insisted that
she committed suicide with his revolver
because he told her he could not return
the love she professed for him, was greatly
pleased with the verdict.
