suggeela discomfort and fatigue, the twenty-five
hours between Portland and Sacra

NEW YORK, Oct. 4.-The ordination of

liberalism, was formally approved at the
meeting of the New York presbytery today.
Last June Mr. Black was assigned to

FLIGHT OF TWENTY MILES
Round Trip Occupies But Little Over
Accident to Motor Prevents Another
Effort Late In the Afternoon
Business Practically Sus
pended. iNKW YORK, Oct. 4-An aeroplanes
Hashed past the white dome of Grant's
tomb today, then turning gracefully In mid
air, over the waters of the Hudson, shot
like a falcon back to Governor's Island, ten
miles away. Wilbur Wright of Dayton. O.,
thus placed his name In the rank with Hud
son and Fulton today In one of the most
spectacular feats in the history of aero
nauts. Over the masses of warships, from whose
decks the hoarse cheers of the sailors were
borne up to him In his elevated seat, he
flew for twenty miles ten miles up and ten
miles back remaining In the air for S3 min
utes and 33 seconds, and alighting at the
aerodrome without mishap.
During the flight business was practi
cally at a standstill In all that part of
Manhattan from which a view of his re
markable feat was available. Harbor
craft shrieked their applause, cheer after
cheer swept up from the banks of the Hud
son and the lower bay for the Dayton av
iator had "made good," crowning the avi
ation program of the Hudson-Fulton cele
bration with a record.
Fast Time Made.
Wright started on hla flight up the Hud
son at 9:W a. m. and finished exactly at
10:29:33. He had intended to Improve upon
his achievement of the morning by making
a longer and more hazardous flight at sun
set, but the crippling of hla motor Just as
he was about to start on the evening at
tempt dashed his hopes, as well aa those
of the thousands who had assembled on
Governor's Island and along the water
front to cheer him on.
The flight waa made under conditions
only moderately favorable. When Wright
reached Governor's Island shortly, after 8
o'clock the wind was blowing about ten
miles an hour, while an overcast sky added
to the uncertainty of the weather. In the
face of these conditions Wright called for
volunteers among the newspaper men as
sembled to tow his machine te the etarttng
rail, while he superintended the laying of
the starting way . in the direction of the
wind. Everything ready, his mechanician
gave the propeller a twist, which started
the motor, and amid the clatter of the ma
chine's exhaust, which sounded like mus
ketry fire. Wright climbed to his seat In
the aeroplane. ,
With the same Impertrubable temper
which has characterised all hia flights, the
aviator pulled his cap over his eyes and
reached for the starting lever. In a mo
ment the machine was off.
Start Is Aasplclons.
With the planes tilted slightly to one
side, the man-bird slowly ascended into
the air, arising to a height of barely
twenty feet, while It swooped In a semi
circle todawrd the water's edge. Here
the presence of many craft, all hyster
ically tooting their whistles, caused him ,
to ascend further Into the air before mak
ing for the mouth of the river.
Almost Indistinguishable against the gray-
banked clouds the machine soared past
old Castle William and soon entered the
canon made by the giant skyscrapers of
Manhattan Island and the Jersey hills.. At
this point the aeroplane was flying at a
height of nearly 200 feet, but unexpected
air currents caused by the great build
ings caused the aviator to bring hla craft
lower to the water. Tilting the elevating
rudder, hs slowly brought the machine
down, sloping gradually until he waa but
a bare hundr.d feet above the too Ing ferry
boats and the busy . river traffic. His
motor was churning as . regularly as a
clock and settling himself In his seat,
he sped onward up the river.
Passes Over Warships.
Over the warships of four great powers
he passed, his progress marked by cheers
from the sailors of his own country and
thoae of Great Britain, Germany, France
and Italy. The blue Jackets lined the rails
of their ships and gazed In wonderment at
the little craft above them, perhaps, think
ing vaguely that some day it might ren
der their own monster fighting machines
When the air vessel reached the British
cruiser, Argyle, anchored an eighth of a
mile above Grant's tomb, Wright brought
his direction rudders into play, and de
scribing an easy and graceful curve started
on hla return Journey down the river. The
wind conditions which had bothered him
on the Journey up were now more favor
able and It waa here that the speed pos
sibilities of the machine were demon
strated. While the ten miles upstream oc
cupied nearly twenty minutes, the return

Dr. Cook's Records Go
to Copenhagen First
COPENHAGEN. Oct. 4 The announce
ment of Ir. Cook's willingness to request
the University of Copenhagen to waive its
claim to the first examination of the
records of his Journey to the North pole
caused keen disappointment and whatever
may be the reply of the university to the
explorer's request, present indications do
not foreshadow a graceful acquiescence on
the part of the general public.
The rector of the unlveisity said tonight:
"No such request has yet been received
from lr. Cook and It is Impossible to
say what attitude the university will take
towards the suggestions that American
and other scientific bodies shall first view
the explorer s data. The action of the uni
versity will depend upon the reason !r.
Cook gives.' Strong Influences may have
been brought to bear upon Vr. Cook In
order to cause him to prefer such a re
quest. The general public is Inclined to be an
noyed at the suggestion that foreign scien
tific bodies shall first see the records.
The people oonslder the promise to give
the university the first opportunity of
passing on the records as nothing but Jus
tice n view of the honors heaped upon
the explorer Ly both the university and
the, Danish public and their ungrudging

Omaha is like some other cities and packed
their grips accordingly.
Anyhow a big crowd has arrived In town.
The crowd did not stand around on the
