Henri do La Hochc, expert mechani

and fotmer chauffeur for tno king of
Greece, will probably ale today In Clark
son hospital from Injuries received late
yesterday artnrnoon when he lost con
trol of a Loch-Coleman aeroplano thirty
feet In the air on the West Center ltreot
road, and waa crushed beneath It when
it fell. To a handful of spectators, who
urged him to make the flight against
his own Judgment, and who taunted htm.
and called him a "yellow" Frenchman,
Is laid the blame for the tragedy.
Pete loeh or Omaha, who Is Inter
ested In the flying machine in company
with Charles E. Fanning and Walter
Molse went to the aviation field on the
Center street road to Inspect the ma
chine. A youth named Curtis, who gen
erally makes th.? demonstration flights,
failed to show up for the trial yester
day, and De La Roche offered to start the
engine and show the tvn mn h tv,
machine worked. He operated the lever
several, time, and made the frail craft
take several small leaps Into tho air,
but he aid not attempt to make a flight.
"I know In a general way abou air
ships, but I have had no experience," he
Taunt Htm to Fly.
"Go onl Fly! Tour're afraid." Jeered sev
eral In tho small crowd of spectators that
naa gathered from the neighborhood.
He La Roche said nothing, but took his
Place In the machine. In another minute
it was speeding along the meadow, and
then tho planes tilted and the ship lifted
Into the air.
It looked as if it would be a successful
flight when Do La Bocho suddenly be
came "rattled" and worked the wrong
teerlng plane. In an Instant the ma
chino turned upon its side and shot
straight downward, striking tho ground
with terrlflo force, crushing the young
man beneath the engine.
In an automobile belonging to Wayne
Burbank, De La Roche was hurried to
the Clorkson hospital, whero It was found
he had received a fracture of the skull,
three broken ribs and compound fractures
of both less.
Drs. L. H. Schleler and R. R. HoUlster
operated upon him at once, but neither
physician offers much hope for his re
covery. DeLa Roche Is about 27 years old and
Is married. He lived with his wlfo at 1721
Davenport street and was employed aa
mechanician for the flro department at
engine house No. 2, Eighteenth and Har

' told a reporter for The Bee that when
ever ho mentioned taking up aviation as
a profession she warned him against it
"1 always had a premonition that If
Henri took up flying he would lose his
life. It has come true."
Young De La Roche's sister was the
first woman In Europe to obtain a license
as an avlatrlx. Bho lost her life in Paris
two years ago when she feU from a high
altitude and was crushed beneath the
engine of her machine. De La Roche
came here a year ago from Oklahoma
City, OkL, and had been on the fire de
partment only three months. During that
time hp won many friends and waa quite
well known throughout the city.
Before his marriage he waa a wanderer
and it was during this period of his
career that he became chauffeur to the
king of Greece for a short time. He lost
the position after a short while, how
ever, and returned to America, where he
became associated with Bob Burman,
Barney Oldtirld, Louis Strang and other
famous auto racers. Ho was an expert
tnecbanla and few persona knew, more
about a motor engine than he.

Attempt to Itrllm n tfnlted States
Internal Revenue Officer
at South trmaha.
Mayor Tom Hootor and his Fire and
Police board appear to be able to gel
along without paying much attention to
the civil courts of Douglas county. A
writ of mandamus Issued out of Judge
Troup's court against the mayor and po
lice commissioners of South Omaha Sat
urday ordering them to abolish gam
bling and the slot machines In this city
was still unsatisfied yesterday evening.
Dven men on the streets began to In
quire If tho board was not In contempt
The writ was granted last week and Is
sued Saturday when It was served on
the board by a deputy sheriff. Tho writ
commands tho board to meet "forthwith"
and to "arrest or cause to be arrested"
any one In whoso possession a slot ma
chine is found. Tho order was peremp
tory and tho supreme court has flatly
decided that such an order means Im
mediate action. But the South Omaha,
mayor who has ruled South Omaha his
own way for years has so far neglected
to obey the writ and has not been cited
Judge Ben Baker has been retained by
Mayor Hootor to fight for the reopening
of the case, but all lawyers with whom
th matter was discussed admit that
suoh a cafco cannot x reopened. Judgo
Baker himself appeared to entertain the
same Idea for he asked Attorney A. It
Murdock of tho plaintiff's counsel to
utlpulate an agreement lo reopen ths
case. Such action would relieve Mayor
Koctor from making an affidavit In
whloh his name would appear as defend
ing the slot machines. Murdock refused
It was said yesterday evening that un
less the machines were removed today
and arrests made In accordance with tho
writ tho matter would bo brought to the
attention of the court It Is said that It
belongs to the office of the county at
torney to see that the orders of the court
In this Instance are carried out, but so
fax the ooUnty attorney has taken no
stand in tho matter. Juat how far the
disregard of Judgo Troup'a order will go
before tho court will of Its own motion
take cognizance of It cannot be said.
Improvement Clnb Formed.
The Orchard Home Improvement club
was organised lost night at Forty-third
and P streets with a roster of thirty-four
members. The club is organised for the
purpose of developing the territory In
tho northwest section of the city. In

WEALTHY CERESC0 MAN
TAKES HIS OWN LIFE
LINCOLN'. Aug 7 -William Rogers of
Cermeo. former rounty surveyor of
Saunders county wortii i 100, COO. hanged
himself in a barn tuday
Dr. Theodore 8. Palmer of the ornltho
logical bureau at Washington spoke be
foro a large gathering of sportsmen at
the Paxton hotel last evening In explana
tion and defense of the Weeks-McLean
law, which calls for the custody ot all
migratory and InseetWerous birds by the
United Btates govtrnment, and which was
approved by congress on March i of the
Dr. Palmer, who la an authority on the
subject of wild life, explained the pur
poses of the bill, which In a condensed
form calls for the protection and propaga
tion of the specie mentioned. The short
ening of the shooting neuson throughout
the United Btates on the total specie to
five and one-half months and local open
seasons limited to thirty days each are
the principles for which supporters of th
Weeks-McLean law are fighting.
SlUaonrl name f.arrs.
Dr. Stephen H. Itsgan of Kansas City,
president ot a leading shooting organiza
tion of the stato of Missouri, declared
tho months of December and January,
part of the open season In Missouri, are
absolutely worthless because the ponds
and lakes are frozen so securely that the
birds do not pause before seeking the
warm regions of the eouth. This being
the cate. Dr. Kagun made the suggestion
that these two months be done away with j
as port of the often season and In their 1
macs the first fifteen days of Heptembcr I
be substituted. Dr. Tl&gan added that at
whatever decision the department might
arrive the sportsmen of Missouri would
support It, although as a whole they
were desirous of having tho change made.
He said Mlssourlans were In favor of
government control over game birds as
the stats laws were jokes owing- to th
vlolaters' successful use of political in
fluence to avoid punishment.
Knit Sliootlnar Abnndonrd,
G. C. Tracy of Burlington, la., spoke in
behalf of the poorer sportsmen of his
state, who since the prohihltlon of shoot
ing on the Mississippi river have prac
tically been forced to abandon fall shoot
ing as the advantageous Inland grounds
have practically been usurp d by clubs
and wealthy Individuals. Mr. Tiacy asked
for the consideration of at least a month's
shooting on tho river In the fall. Heverat
others offered remarks and considerations
which were duly noted by Dr, Palmer,
who assured those attending they would
be given careful consideration by the de
partment. Previous to Dr, Palmer's talk, Joseph
Jl. Acklen of Tennessee, president ot the
National Association of dame nnd Flan
Commissioners, delivered an address sup
porting the Weeks-McLean bill and urg
ing sportsmen In general to uphold it In
