July l-In view of 3,000 spectator, the big dirigible balloon Akron was shattered by 'the ex plosion of the gas bag at 6:S8 thl morn ing a balf mile oft shore over Abaecon iniet: .. " . . , ... ... Metvln Vaniman, who bad built the alr . ship with the Idea of flying across the Atlantic ocean; Calvin Vaniman, ) his younger brother; Fred Elmer, Walter Guest and George Bourtillion, his crew, were Instantly MUM. No trace of their bodies has been discovered. The dirigible was sailing at a height - - of 1,006 feet and had been In the air since 6:15 o'clock when the accident occurred. It "was quarter of a'mile south of Brigantine Beach, which Is across the Inlet from this city. The huge envelope, containing thousands of cubic feet of gas, was rent by the terrific explosion, prob ably caused by expansion from the sun's rays. ' It burst near the middle. 1 A mass of flames hid the ship from view. For a sprfce of perhaps ten seconds the haJf-mijlton-dollar dirigible was Invisible, while the air about the spot where it had been hovering to be all flames.. Falls Like n Plummet. The fire dissipated and then the ship, outlined against the sunrise, was seen to fall like a plummet. First the under structure, .or car, in which were penned the unfortunate men, held in by a mesh, work put on after the second trip of the balloon three weeks ago, unable to es cape, broke away from the envelope. It up-ended, the bow turning first, in a alow arc. Then It reversed suddenly 'And plunged downward,; Directly ; above, "'twisting in a-Jong spiral, was he bag.1 a emqklng mass of rubber . ana silk, with flames" shooting out from a dozen see- tions as It collapsed."'

Wreckage and hit the water before the rest of the descending mass. It was reported that this was the headless body of Calvin Vaniman. ' At 8:20 a. m. a message was relayed ashore from rescuers that this body had been recovered. . With. It came the state' ment that Captain Lambert Parker of the federal Ufetaving crew that this was trueand that the other four members of the crew-were entangled in the wreckage, beyond reach for the present, in eighteen feet of water. . Thousands of persons from every part of the resort are gathered along the Inlet, board walk and about the Vaniman cot tage, just across from the hangar at the Inlet, where Mrs. Vaniman collapsed and became unconscious from the shock. . The greatest excitement prevailed for a time. Boats ,were starting out from, the inlet and alt along the shores of the thoroughfare and beach; Police reserves who helped to launch the craft, which sailed along gracefully until the accident occurred, kept the crowds from about the Vaniman villa, Second Flight of Year. The flight was the second that the air ship had taken - this year. After tinker ing all winter on the ship Vaniman took the Akron out for a short flight on Saturday morning, June 1. At that time the balloon was nearly wrecked by some of the mechanism glng wrong, but It was landed without .serious mishap. The longest flight the balloon made was last fall when it spent the greatest part of the day in the air In the vicinity ef this city. At tfiat time the gas in the bag was not : sufficient to keep the big ship constantly in the air and it had to make several landings. During the win ter Vaniman Improved, the ship through lessons learned in that flight' v id general appearance the Akron was hot ' unlike the America in which Walter Wellman and Vaniman attempted to cross the Atlantic ocean In October, 1910, but there were many differences ,in the . eonstruotion. The' gas ' bag was thirty Ceet longer than that of the America, but was smaller in diameter." The dimensions were: Lenth of bag, 258 feet, diameter forty-seven feet .The bag was made of a composition of rubber and was constructed In Ohio. Three Motors mad Dynamo. Beneath was tha car, similar In shape to the America's, but longer, perhaps ISO feet long. The bottom of the car was composed of a round steel tank two feet in diameter and about 100 feet long. lu this tank, was stored the gasoline. The The Weather For Nebraska Unsettled with showers.

BALTIMORE, July 2.-Senator Bank- head, referring to the withdrawal of Mr. Underwood, spoke as follows: . "Air. ; Underwood entered this contest hoping that he might secure the , nomi nation from this convention, but I desire to say for him that his first and greatest hope was that through this movement he might be able to eliminate and eradicate for all time every remaining vestige of factional ' feeling in this country., (Ap. plause.) "Mr. Underwood today will willingly and anxiously forego this nomination if he" has succeeded and if the country has concluded that Mason and Dixon's line has been tramped out and this is once more a united country. (Applause.) We have demonstrated here, my friends, in my judgment, that no longer sectional feeling exists. (Applause.) The liberal support that Mr. Underwood ha3 had from the east satisfies us that , if an opportunity were offered to nominate this splendid man, the people there are ready and would hasten to his aid. "Mr. Underwood did not enter, this con test to defeat any man's nomination. His only hope was that the great record that he has made as leader ; of the democracy, his hope was that what he had . accomplished for the democracy of this country, would, secure . the election of a democrat at the' election next November. (Applause.) - He has al ways said, 'I take no personal part , in this campaign; I have not the time,' Mis First Duty. "He said: 'I have a full man's work marked out for me in Washington, and my first duty is to make it possible to elect a' democrat, whoever the-nominee may be.' Upon that high ground he stands today; upon that high ground he will stand tomorrow and all other days. He has no concern, my friends about his own nomination or election beyond that which naturally comes to every man who feels he is thoroughly equipped and qual ified for that high office. But I think the time has come when it is. demon strated that he cannot be nominated in this convention; and br cannot be used to defeatths nomination of any ether Van-, didate."

A delegate: "Vice president." -Senator Bankhead: "Vice, president no. (Applause.) No friend of ' the demo cratic party would dare suggest to -.take that : man . from his present position (ap plause) if . they cannot . elevate' him ' to the highest office In the land. Vice presi dent? Anybody can sit In the vice presi dent's chair. (Laughter). It is a kind of an ornament. Even I, as humble as I am, could sit in that chair and say: 'The gentleman . from New York moves to adjourn (laughter), and that is all. (Laughter). .... ... "This great democrat the democracy's best asset; "this great' democrat, who has made it possible for the democratic party to win In the next contest, 'Will stay where he is and perform the duties that he has been performing without com plaint. To take that man from the field of usefulness and construction .that he now occupies would be a crime, unless he can be promoted to the presidential chair, the only promotion that yon could give him. I hope that no gentleman here will suggest his name for vice president. He has repeatedly said: 'No,' and he is a man who stands by bis word. ' Vaderwood la Withdrawn. "Now, my friends, one more word and I will conclude." Senator Bankhead was Interrupted by calls from delegates on the floor. The chair having restored order, the senator continued: -"Now,' one word and I am through.

I had no choice among progressive candidates, but from the first included Governor Wilson In every list I had oe casjon to make. His action in coming out strongly against Mr. Parker for tem porary chairman was the turning point in his campaign. The country Is progres sive. ' Nearly all of the democratic paAy and more than half of the ' republican party are progressiva. , ' "The paramount . question before the convention was whether we , would take sides with the reactionaries and thus en courage the organization of a, third .party and. give to the third party ( the hope of defeating the, reactionaries divided into two parties or . whether ; we would nomi nate a ticket that would so appeal to the progressive element of the nation as to make a third party Improbable.
