California Inventor Expects to Have
, the Craft In Readiness for An
other Flight by Tomorrow
ST. LOUTS, Nov. 2. The airship of Cap
tain T. 8. Baldwin, of Ban Francisco,
which suddenly slipped away last night
as it was belne towed In from the coun
try to the aeronautic concourse, was found
today IB miles west of St. Louis. It was
unharmed by its wild night flight, save
Sot two small rents. In the gas bag, which
Captain Baldwin stated could be repaired
In half an hour.
When the Arrow escaped, there was
Just enough gas to lift the craft well off
the CTOund. Inventor Baldwin expressed
his belief at the time that the cold night
air would condense the as rapidly, and
cause- the airship to come down In the
vicinity of St. Louis. After floating in
the wind for 16 miles, the airship came
down to within a short distance of the
ground, and her anchor rope became en
tangled in the dead limb of a tree. This
served as an anchor, and the airship
was found so moored in a cornfield by
Word reached Baldwin late In the day
that his airship had been found. He and
Aeronaut Knabenshue hurried to the scene
In an automobile, and were repolced to
find the aerial craft uninjured, with the
exceDtion of two slight rents in the bal
loon. The balloon was deflated, and after
negotiations had been completed with a
farmer, the collapsed airship was loaded
en to a haywagon and brought back to
the Exposition aerodrome. Captain Bald
win stated tonight that he expected to
have the airship in readiness for a flight
by Saturday afternoon.

V Fairbanks Has a Busy Day.
TERRE HAUTE. Ind.. Nov. 3. Nearly
20 speeches were made today by Senator
Fairbanks- in "Western Indiana, beginning
at. Blooaaington in the morning-and con

Ambassador Likely to Go to London,
and Later to Paris.
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 3. State Depart
ment officials consider it quite probable
that Count Casslnl, the Russian Ambas
sador, will be transferred first to London
and later to Paris before the war with
Japan ends. This opinion prevails, despite
the denials of information reaching Lon
don from St. Petersburg that Count Cas
slni will be made Ambassador to Great
Britain within two months. Count Cas
slnl's great ambition is to conclude his
diplomatic career at Paris, the best post
In the Russian service. He has long
sought this place, and might accept the
British mission with the promise of Paris
in the near future. There is believed to
be some truth in the St. Petersburg ad
Lower House of Hungarian Diet Re
fuses to Support Their Move.
BUDAPEST, Nov. -3. The lower house
of the Hungarian Diet has declined, to
approve the resolution of Francis Kos
suth, president of the Independent
party, calling on the Premier to "urge
the Austro-Hungarlan Foreign Minister
to support any diplomatic attempt on
the part of the United States, tending
to put on end to the bloodshed In the
Far East. Supporting his motion, Kos
suth today declared that Russia, de
spite her defeats, had brilliantly main
tained the reputation for gallantry of
her army, so hat she can accept inter
vention without feeling that her honor
is affected.
Premier Tlszonla, however, -while de
claring he fully appreciated Kossuth's
noble intentions, pointed out that ac
tion by a neutral power could only be
effective if the belligerents desired. At
the Premier's request, the motion was
German Sailors Declare the Russians
Fired on Their Own Ships. .
BERLIN, Nov. 4. Despite a semi-official
denial from St. Petersburg, it appears to
be the almost universal impression that,
during the bombardment of the English
fishing fleet off the Dogger bank, and per
haps also during other stages of the
extraordinary voyage, the Russians
shelled their own ships. The belief Is
manifestly cherished in all sincerity in St.
Petersburg and Moscow that there were
actually Japanese torpedo-boats lying in
wait for the Baltic fleet In the North Sea.
The evidence of the crew of the German
trawler Sonntag makes It appear that
shortly after leaving the Skaggerak, the
Russians actually began to make the fatal
mistake of firing-upon their own ships.
No Agreement With Spain.
BERLIN, Nov. 3. The Foreign Office
here authorizes the Associated Press to
say that Germany has no agreement with
Spain whatever respecting Joint protec

New York Policemen, With Great Dif

NEW YORK, Nov. 3. A shooting af
fray with many features resembling the
highbinder outrages of the San Francisco
Chinese quarter, which occurred in China
town today, may result In the death of
Mock Duck, one of tho most prominent
members of the reform element In the
local Chinese colony. Mock was -waylaid
as he was passing through Pell street,
and one of two bullets fired at him lodged
in his abdomen, making an extremely
dangerous wound.
When his assailant, who was captured
as he was running away, was being taken
to the patrol-box by a policeman, the
couple were surrounded by three other
Chinamen, with drawn revolvers, de
manding the" release of the prisoner. The
situation was becoming serious, when a
dozen reserves arrived. The reserves
found the policeman and his prisoner
backed up in a doorway, the officer hold
ing back three armed Chinamen. The
would-be rescuers fled when the rein
forcements arrived. The man under ar
rest is Lee Sing, a laundryman.
Mock Duck was tried for the murder
of a fellow Chinaman about two years
ago, but was acquitted. Immediately after
his release from prison he became ac

Pestiferous Insect Is Fed Upon by
SALEM, Or.. Nov. 3. (Special.) If the
bald-headed man feels any resentment
toward the pestiferous fly, which Is pro
verbially his chief source of annoyance,
he might get some satisfaction by exam
ining a few of those insects through th
lens of a strong magnifying glass. Pro
fessor Boyer, of the chair of science, of
Willamette University, has recently been
conducting some Investigation for the
benefit of his class In zoology, and finds
that the ordinary housefly has troubles of
its own. In the form of a parasite so small
as to be Invisible to the naked eye.
What the parasite lacks in size It makes
up In "numbers and ferocity, and the fly
which has been so unfortunate as to be
come Infested with them has life made
miserable for him. Little wonder, then.
If In tho exasperation of despair the fly
proceeds to make life miserable for ani
mals much larger than himself.
The parasite discovered by Professor
Boyer belongs to the family of pedicull,
or. In common parlance, lice. Though
smaller than a speck of fine dust, the In
sect Is perfect In form, according to the
characteristics of his species, and Is pro
vided with all the necessary appliances
for making his way In the world. Seen
under the microscope, this minute insect
appears to have immense claws which en
able blm to cling firmly to the body of
his victim, while he plunges a sharp,
tubular beak deep Into tho veins and
sucks the life-blood, which constitutes his
The fly feels tho drain upon his system
and shows it In his appearance. Instead
of being plump. active and healthy, the
fly infested with vermin Is small, sickly
and stupid. He Is unable to rid himself
of his voracious enemies, and In the end
must die that they may live.
Professor Boyer did not conduct the In
vestigation far enough to learn whether
the louse that lives upon the back, of the
fly has a still smaller parasite that feeds
In turn upon him.

Time Coming When Fighters Will Be
MARSHFIELD.Or.. Oct. SI. (To the Editor.)
In The Ore gon Ian of October 23 you give
acme conclusions In regard to war, and de
cide that It Is one of the necessary adjuncts
which follow la the natural course of National
affairs, and that nations will continue to ar
bitrate their differences with sword and run
till perhaps the end of time.
Of course. It Is simply a matter of opinion,
and that is all any of us can have so .tar as
the future Is concerned. That Xlnd of arbitra
tion Is based upon the premises that "might
makes right."
Should Japan whip Russia out of Manchuria,
and establish all her claims, the world would
look upon Japan as being In the right; but, on
the other hand, should Russia drive Japan
back, and so far as the nation of Jacan is
concerned, drive, her Into the sea, then
Russia would stand out boldly and proclaim
to the world that she wae In the right. Let
two men have some difficulty and start In to
settle It according to their physical, strength,
and It Is the law of our land that other par
ties standing1 near must interfere to stop the
fight. Why a rule that Is claimed to be the
correct thing between individuals should not
have & similar interpretation am one nations
is something- X cannot understand.
If we stand with our outlook backwards to
ward the past wo naturally would come to the
conclusion that matters In regard to warfare
would always continue as they are now and
have been In the past; but, are we Justified in
those conclusions T
Had our forefathers .been looking backwards
Instead of forward toward f. new and Inde
pendent nation there never would have been a
nation known as the "United States of America.
Thcrs are many people now who are looking
ahead toward the time when the same law
that now applies between Individuals will be
made to apply between nations; and we be
lieve the time .will come when It will be
looked upon, as Just the same fcr a nation, on
account of her superior strength, to overrun
and crcsh down & smaller and weaker nation
as It Is for a large and powerful man. on ac
count of his strength, to hammer Into subjec

Just as near establishing the matter of right
and wrong between the men as It does between
There is no one who attempts to say that
General Sherman's Interpretation of war Is
perfectly correct: and why nations need be
supposed always to continue In the expression
of that feature of human manifestation, while
the Individual Is expected to step to a plane
above It, la" a problem a little hard to solve.
And where nations are allowed and expected
to manufacture "hell" by the wholesale, how
can the individual climb much above the
seething: pot that his nation heats up for him?
I look forward to the time, and believe it
will come, when The Hague, or some other
point, will be the courthouse of the world,
where national differences can be settled as
individual differences are now settled by the
courts of our land. "Why one course should
be expected of the man, and another from an
aggregation of men known as a nation, Is not
right clear; but I suppose you will argue that
all thereia to It Is that a nation Is expected
to fight, while the Individual can be made to
keep the peace. There Is no right or wrong
to be considered in the case; it Is only what
Is liable to occur that we have to figure from.
"When Individuals differ so that they get into
the courts the right and wrong of the trouble
Is supposed to be- considered and the decision
rendered accordingly, so why need nations
object to having theelr differences adjusted
In the same manner? I know you will say
they feel oo big they simply will not do It
and that Is all there la to it. But that does
not answer the question as to what the fu
ture may bring forth.
