Walter Brooking, Driving Wright
Biplane, Makes Hour's Flight
Over Ocean Beats Former
Mark by Close to 3000 Feet.
ATLANTIC CIT". July 9. Walter
Prookins, driving a Wright biplane,
reached an altitude estimated at 6000 feet
.over the ocean this evening and broke
the world's record for aeroplane altitude.
0 The exact official figures now being
worked out by engineer who took ob
servations for triangulation will be given
out later.
" The barograph, an altitude-recording
i .Instrument carried on the machine,
showed an altitude of 6100 feet. OfHcials,
using an altitude gauge on the ground,
-gave the height as 5680, and it is be
lieved that the final official figures will
show an altitude somewhere between the

J5000 prize offered by the Atlantic City

ent meet.
Brookins spent one hour, two minutes
and 35 15-100 seconds in the air, according
to official timing. About 57 minutes of
this time was made in a' circling ascent,
the rush of over a mile to the ground
jconsumlng less than seven minutes.
1 The former record was 4603 feet, made
by Brookins at Indianapolis, on June 17.
I'rench "Aviator Travels S.IO Miles
la 2 Minutes 56 Seconds.
BETHANY PLAIX3L Rheims, July 9.
Many records have been broken at the
aviation meeting here during the week,
but the most sensational flights have been
made by Leon Morane, the French avi
ator, who in a new 100 horsepower Blerlot
monoplane today covered five kilometers
(about 3:10 miles) in 2 minutes, 56 seconds,
and ten kilometers in 5 minutes and 47
seconds, and by M. La Bouchere, also a
Frenchman, who broke the world's record
for distance, flying 340 kilometers (211.14
miles) in a single flight In 4 hours, 31
tnlnutes and 46 seconds.
The most remarkable achievement of a
remarkable day was that of Morane, who
made his flight of more than a mile a
minute while three other machines were

French experts consider that he has a
eplenxiid chance to capture the trophy, as
he speed developed by Morane today was
more than four minutes under the winning
time of Glenn. H. Curtiss for the same
distance last year.
Olieslagers reduced the 100-kilometer
record (62.27 miles) to one hour and eight
minutes. Aubrum, in a monoplane, with a
.single passenger, covered 135 kilometers
(83.9 miles) in 2:09:07. La Bouchere was
awarded a special prize of i 1000 for break
ing Olieslagers' record of 250 kilometers.
The constructor's prize for the greatest
total distance covered by three machines
of one design goes to the Antoinette
monoplane, which covered 2744 kilometers
(1706 miles).
Mamet established a world's record for
carrying two passengers. He flew for
' 62.75 kilometers (57.90 miles) at an altitude
of 60 meters (164 feet). Auburn made a
new distance record with a single passen
ger, of So kilometers (62.78 miles) in one

Interest In the relation of the United

the well being, which, as well as that
of other Republics of Central America,
the Government of the United States
and the government of Mexico did so
much to promote during the period of
the Washington convention.

mised, the telegram which Dr. Madrlz

under erroneous information with re
spect to the actual facts and the prin

to the case.
"As to the statements made in the
information, I communicate the text of

Recently, Estrada offered to exchange
Colonel Salamanca, who was taken pris

General Rivas. Pittman's chances of get

Conference on House of Lords
Expected Now to Reach
Settlement of Irish Question May
Be Attained, King Desiring to See
Imperial Parliament Relieved
of Local Affairs.
(Special cable to the Chicago Tribune, copy
right. 1910, by the Tribune Company.)
LONDON, July 9. The situation 1
greatly changed in the House of Com
mons and the whole political world.
John Redmond's success in getting the
ministers to have November sittings
and to postpone the final stages of the
budget until then has produced equal
delight and appeasement in the Liberal
and Irish circles.
The Liberals are pleased because the
postponement of the budget leaves the
fate of the government entirely in the
hands of the House of Commons and
thus prevents any chance of any such
compromise by the Liberal negotiators
as would imperil the Liberal principles.
Hence that dangerous spirit of mis
giving and revolt which threatened
open rupture between the ministry and
its supporters has been exercised and
the whole political temper again is
tranquil and even cheerful, so far as
the Liberal and Irish ranks are con
cerned. The Tories are equally pleased, their
opinion being that all this cessation
from the conflict helps them by sooth
ing the popular passion against the
House of Lords.
Conference. May Agree.
These facts account for the consider
able change during the week in the at
titude of all parties towards the con
ference. The pessimism which looked
for a-n early rupture or a final dis
agreement, owing to the gulf between
the two parties, has given place to a
spirit of optimism and the general im
pression that the .conference will
eventuate in an agreement between the
two parties. But, though this trans
formation of temper may mean some
thing, it cannot be taken too seriously.
Never has a political secret been better
kept than the proceedings of the con
ference. Even to their colleagues the
negotiators are dumb, Balfour's Illness
besides enticing a new element of un
certainty and delay.
Another sure sign of the times Is
the feeling among the more rational
Conservatives that the conference. If
it means a compromise on the constitu
tional question of the Lords' veto, also
means a compromise on the Irish ques
tion. Evidently everybody feels the
solution of the Irish, question cannot
be much longer delayed.
Irish Question to Be Settled.
This feeling is aided greatly by the
spectacle of the Irish party controlling
all English politics at this moment. It
was the Irish party which forced Pre
mier Asqulth and the Cabinet into the
announcement of the demand of guar
antees from the late King. It was the
Irish party that passed the budget and
forced it down the throats of the House
of Lords, and it was the Irish party
which forced the November sitting. The
Tories are thus driven to contemplate
the desirability of removal from the
Imperial Parliament of so disturbing an
element. -
Another factor Is the well-known
opinion of the present King that lo
cal questions should no longer occupy
so much of the time and attention of
the imperial Parliament and "that a
system of home rule all around should
leave the imperial Parliament to deal
solely with imperial affairs. Ulster
and the Orangemen are the only ob
stacles left to settlement between the
two parties on the home rule ques
tion. "No Popery" Is Issue.
In the meantime the uncertainty arid
surprises of British politics are re
vealed by the history of the accession
bill. It seemed impossible that any
person could object to the removal of
the words of the royal oath insulting
to millions of Catholic subjects, but
the "no popery" feeling was being
carefully machined by the ultra
Protestant associations. Walter Long,
formerly Chief Secretary for Ireland,
and most of the old-fashioned Tories
were not allowed to speak. Owing to
the support of the accession bill, the
parliamentary vacancy In Liverpool. Is
likely to lead to a fierce fight, where
the accession oath will rush to the
front as the main issue.
The ministry, after resolving to post
pone the bill until November, now has
resolved to bring It to a final de
cisipn before the present sittings. In
order to head off the "no popery"
Redmond Scores Again.
Redmond scored another big victory
this week. Lloyd George, though he
is hard pressed for money and though
he failed to get $4,000,000 from the
City of London at 3 per cent, has
agreed to lend another million to Ire
land for laborers' cottages at 2 per
cent. ''- This new victory has provoked
the Tory members of the rural con
stituencies in England to explain that
the Irish party is the most powerful
factor in getting anything done in the
present Parliament and they complain
that members could not get for the
agricultural laborers In England what
they had won for the agricultural la
borers in Ireland.

ROSEBURG, Or., July 9. (Special.)
J. J. Kirby, the demented Individual
who recently terrorized the residents of
the Brewster Valley districts, and was
later captured by Walter Laird and
brought to this city, was committed to
the Insane Asylum late today by
County Judge Wonacott, and Acting
County Physician Vincil.
When Kirby first arrived here under
guard the physicians entertained some
hopes for his recovery, but this idea
vanished yesterday when he became
violent. He continues to entertain the
delusion that his life Is being sought
by a pursuing mob and emphatically
refuses to accept medical assistance.
