PEAL, England, Aug. 17. After a long
wait Moissant decided to make no attempt
to continue his Journey to London today.
Ha will a tart for London about 6 o'clock
DEAL, Aug. 17. With every prospect of
aucceaa in completing the aerial' trip from
Paris to London, which since the crouslng
, of the English channel by Blerlot and oth
ers has been the great aim of the bird men.
Moissant, the young Spanish aviator, de-
' sceuded hear here today, having accom-
pushed the flight from Paris to Calais and
the Journey across the ohannel to Deal
with an case and brilliancy rarely sur-
Moissant In his trip across the channel
carried a passenger, his mechanician,
Albert, making the cross-channel flight not
merely pn Incident In the longer Farls
London Journey, but an achievement which
surpasses the teats of Blerlot, De Lexseps
and the unfortunate Rolls, whose machines
were burdened only with the pilots in cross
ing the straits.
He Is now preparing to continue the trip
! to London, the completion of which will
: bring him the cup and prize offered -by a
London newspaper' for the race, and the

land for urahame white, which the un
successful competitor on the London-Manchester
flight generously offered as a prize
for the Paris to London competition.
Hubert Latham, who started from Issy;
j a. -suburb ;of- Parte, to race Moiaaant . tor
I IOiidon, hud a series of unfortunate acoi
' dents; the last at Amiens, culminating in
the total wrecking of his machine as he
was preparing to resume the ' flight.
Latham eucaped unhurt, but la out of the
Strong- 'Wind Blowing.
The last stage of Molssant's flight, the
, trip across the channel, was accomplished
' In a strong breeze, the wind being so high
that experienced aviators looked on the
. start as foolish. It was such a wind as
repeatedly deterred Blerl t, Latham and
other aviators from attempting a passage
of the straits, and correspondents who had
witnessed the earlier attemptsto cross the
channel confidently wired their papers that
Moissant would not start before evening,
when the wind was expected to fall.
Nevertheless, as soon as he could arrange
fur a French torpedo boat to follow him
across the chanhel. Moissant launched his
aeroplane from the cliffs near Calais at
10:2a o'clock Hill morning and started for
the'Engllvh shore. The breeze was atll
trong and the monoplane which, like other
Blerlot machines, appearod to spectators
less steady In the air than the heavier
biplane, pitched and rolled so dangerously
that spectators believed It In Imminent
Driven North by Gale.
Moissant, however, though one of the
youngest of tiie aviators, managed his
machinery with the greatest skill and as
(he Blerlot with lis guide passed out of the
one of greatest danger near the shore,
aeemd to steady his niuchine and as It
passed out ot sight of Calais, was, accord
ing to reports here, flying well, at an al
i tltutle of about 500 feet.
He was expected to land at Dover, but
as driven a few miles north and made the
ot.t near Deal, passing over Walmer
caitle and the niuiine barracks at 11 :
a. m. He was unable to continue the
Journey to London, so numbed was he by
the cold and lauded near Tilmanstone, a
short distance from Deal.
The trip from Calais to Tilmanstone oc
cupied approximately thirty-seven minutes.
The torpedo boat waa unable to get up
, at earn In time to accompany Molsitant and
the aviator was followed in his trip across
the channel only by a single tug. ' The tug
was utterly outdistanced in the race and
Moissant landed at Tilmanstone before the
vessel had readied mid-channel.

of the victory scored In yesterday's

It is estimated that the plurality of Hiram
