THE AVIATION MEET
IT WAS TOO WIKDT AUD FOGGY
FOR FASfCY FLYING.
Rut Six of Twenty-Nine Entrants
Wheeled Out Machines The
Crowd Was Small.
lAstocioild Prut Rrfati.)
NEW YORK. October 22. A persistent
fine rain driven before a wind that held
steadily out of the east at between ten
and twelve miles sn hour thinned to a
sparse scattering the spectators at the
opening day of the International aviation
meet at Belmont Park and brought out
but six of the twenty-nine aviators en-
tered but It served to prove that air men
are no longer creatures of moods and mo-
ments and that an aviation program can
go' through as scheduled tn the fsce of
the most disappointing conditions.
An Englishman Clande Grahams
White took first place In the distance
contest and In ths totalisation of dura-
tion the lump sum of time that any avia-
tor has been aloft for tha day. An
American John B. Molssant of 'Chicago
was the only contestant who cared to
take chances on a twenty-mile cross-
country flight Into the teeth of the wind
and with the fog so thick that be could
not see the ground after he rose ISO feet
above the earth.
Motssantfs flight was a second demon-
station both hla own of the fact that an
air man like a seaman can steer by
compass without-regard to the time of
the day or night foul weather or fair.
As Cn bis trip from Paris to London
and he Slew in the same machine ho
steered wholly by compass. "
In point of fact Molssant as observed
covered by three miles more than tha
course although he Is" not credited with
the excess. No records were broken to-
day; it waa sufficient triumph to fly at
all. Grahams White In a steady Far-
man biplane keeping close to the ground
cutting the corners with workmanlike
precision piled up twenty laps In two
successive hours flying for distance only.
Ho was Just two hours In the air and
the official' scorer credited blm with SLOT
miles for each hour.
Molssant was second with fourteen laps
for the first hour and fifteen for the sec-
ond respectively 2L7S and 2S.S miles.
None of the Wright teams triad for dis-
tance. Hoxsey and Johnstone both went
up for. altitude but Johnstone had en-
gine trouble and Hoxsey evidently found
the current up above the foe too wild
for be culckly settled from a height of
741 feet 'to mors ( modest levels. Ely. of
the Curtlss team also tried his luck at
height and took second place for the
first hour with M feet. Hoxsey tried It
-again tn the second hour and did worse
72 feet this time.
Count De Leeseps made 464 feet J. A.
Armstrong Drexel f and Ely in another
trial SOS feet. None ef them liked It
much above for they were soon down.

PEK1N October 22. A. surprising re-
volt has taken place against tho govern-
ment The imperial senate not yet three
weeks old has voted to memorialise tha
throne for the early opening of a general
parliament Thla. action appears to In-
dicate that tho new senate will not bis a
submissive or mock Institution but' one
with which the grand council -must
reckon. - .
As far back as last Juno a formal de-
mand waa made for the immediate con-
vocation of a national parliament the es-
tablishment of which bad been- promised
for the year 1911. An imperial decree waa
then Issued refusing the demand whloh
was made by delegates to tbo provincial
assembly and was supported by organisa-
tions of merchants throughout tho coun-
try. The Imperial senate . no sooner as-
sembled October SS than - tha provincial
delegates formed an opposition party and
arrayed themselves against tho throne.
The question of tho parliament waa
brought up dally and tha demand waa
made that it should have executive and
not' merely advisory power. The cam-
nalan culminated yesterday when tmi
atoned BDeechea were made hi whlcl
was pointed out that a change waa Im-
perative for the salvation of the country.
This plea won over a large majority.
Tho Russo-Japanese agreement with
reference to tho annexation of Coram by
Japan baa been employed actively by agi-
tators and tbo press during tha last few
months to create a wave of patriotism.
and this propaganda haa made consider-
able progress among tha Intelligent
clsssee tbo progressive party It was
showing a strong front against tho united
officials and the Manchu army.
