trials were successful in proving that
the machine flies fast, is well-balanced
and is handled almost as easily as a
flying boat of less than half its size
Flights were made by Glenn H.
Curtiss, Lieutenant John C. Porte and
George Hallett, ail of whom expressed
themselves as well pleased with her
'So far as the trials went the boat

Mr. Curtiss. "Our big problem, how
ever, lies in raising another 1600
pounds from the water. When we
have done 1 that I shall be glad to be
enthusiastic. Before we attempt to
fly the machine fully loaded I intend
to add some auxiliary water planes
now in course of construction. Today's
trials give me reason to hope we have
made no mistake in our calculations.'
Experts who witnessed the flights

Bleeding . From Shotgun Wound,
Aged Man Staggers Mile to Home

tlve Given for Attack.
HTT.T.SBORO, Or, June 23. (Special.)
An attempt to murder F, M. Wood
cock, a horseman aged TO, of 972 Cor-
bett street, Portland, was made on
Gales Creek at noon today by an un
identified person who fired a shotgun
from ambush as Woodcock was fish
ing. Although painfully wounded, phy
sicians say they believe he will re
cover. Robbery Is the motive officers
assign for the attack.
Earl McCoy, aged 18, who lives near
the scene, is held for Investigation.
The charge which was from a num
ber six shell, entered between Mr.
Woodcock's shoulder blades and then
passed into the base of the skull. It
carried away the scalp from the nape
of his neck to the top of his head. Per
sons investigating the shooting, say it
is certain that had he been standing,
his bead would have been blown off, as
the shot was fired from a distance of
but 35 feet- Eis hat was blown off into
the creek and could not be found.
Mr. Woodcock left Portland yester
day and arrived at the home of Fred
Wilson, his friend, late in the after
noon. He started on a fishing trip this
morning. He fished down Gales Creek
until he came to the ranch of Elijah
McCoy, a pioneer residing 10 miles
from Forest Grove. .
Shot Fired aa Victim' Stoops.
Finding a boy, Orville McCoy, aged
12, fishing, be had him catch peri
winkles. The boy soon left for tn
house and Mr. Woodcock moved down
the stream on the opposite bank from
the McCoy houses, three in number.
As he stooped to bait his hook, Mr.
Woodcock says he felt a crashing
the shoulders and head and at first be
lieved he had been struck by light
ning. He fell and, as he heard the gun
report, realized he had been shot.
"Who is shooting me?" he says b
There was no answer, but he says h
heard some one running away in the
Mr. Woodcock staggered through the
bottoms to the bench land and reached
the Wilson home, a mile distant, in
about an hour. He was bleeding pro
The place of the shooting is in
thick wood of firs and it is said that
a person standing on the river bank
could hardly penetrate the gloom of
the Interior. Mr. Woodcock stood by
a stump on the bank of the stream
and a distance of 25 feet was entirely
clear of the underbrush. Officers say
there is no possible chance for a hunter
to have mistaken Mr. Woodcock for an
Sheriff i'uts Boy tn Jail.
Sheriff Reeves went to the scene
and after an investigation brought Karl
McCoy to Hillsboro and placed him in
the County Jail. Young McCoy is now
under- parole on a Circuit Court in
determinate sentence to the peniten
tiary on a charge of forging his fath
er's name to a check. He will be held
until the shooting affair Is thoroughly
McCoy told seveaal stories in con
nection with the day's events, and the
officers say they are satisfied that he
knows who did the shooting.
Fred Woodcock, a son, is a trainer
at the Portland Country Club.
Mr. Woodcock made a special request
tonight that no news of the shooting
be sent his wife and son, as he did not
want to have them alarmed.
