ed out to see the arrival of Atwood j
and his aeroplane. i
The report proved to be untrue.
There was, in fact, an aeroplane ini
sight, and it was one that did fine I
work. It circled around the capitolj
several times and then disappeared.
This aeroplane, however, was a
Wright machine which the Govern
ment has bought and which is being
used in practice by officials of the
War and Navy Departments at Col
lege Park a few miles outside of
Washington. The officers in this, ma
chine started out to meet Atwood
and escort him to Potomac Park.
It was learned later that Atwood
had stopped at Baltimore and deter
minpd to snend the nierht therft and
would come over to-day. Early this j
morning Atwood arrived st College!
Park and was to come on to Wash
ington this afternoon, but an accident
occurred there to his machine which
will require repairs.
In this connection, it will be re
membered, that two years ago the
President of the United States and
both Houses of Congress adjourned
one afternoon after the other when
the tariff bill was under discussion to
go to Fort Myer to see a Wright ma-
chine circle around over the drill
i grounds or t on Myer zor a miie or
twro, and that sometimes several af
ternoons would pass that the machine
would not attempt to go up. Since
that time wonderful strides have
been made in this remarkable art.
About a year ago the whole world
wras thrilled with the news that a dar
ing aviator had flown successfully
across the English Channel. A few
days ago nine aviators left France
and w ent across the English Channel
in a race, all of them arriving on the
shore safely; and this remarkable
feat did not attract one-hundredth
part of the attention as the success
ful flight of one machine did a year
We are moving so fast that what
