House Control Expected to
Change Though West
Stands Solid.
, w York Herald Forecast Show
Republicans Most Carry All
Doubtful Districts to Main
tain Present Leadership.
' Ins-ton, Oct 10. Congressional election
forecast compiled by the Washing-ton
1 correspondent of the New York Herald
indicates very atrongrly that the next
House of Representatives will be safe
ly Democratic
Nothing- short of a miracle. It la said,
can bring about a Republican victory
a week from next Tuesday. The tier
aid's figures show that the Democrats
are reasonably certain of 157 districts,
leaving 40 districts In doubt. Repub
licans must therefore carry every
doubtful district In order to control the
next House. If the Herald's figures are
In a tabulated statement the Herald
predicts the re-election of solid Repub

T'tah. and Colorado. Heretofore two
California districts were regarded as
doubtful and at least One in Colorado.
The latter state is now represented by
three Democrats. Nevada is the only
far Western state listed as doubtful.
Losses Heavy in East.
Heavy Republican losses are Indicat
ed in New York and Pennsylvania. At
present the Republicans have 25 dis
tricts in New York. They are conceded
only 13. with four other districts In
doubt. In Pennsylvania where 27 dis
tricts are now Republican only II are
conceded the Republicans and five are
Thirteen districts in Ohio are now
Republican. The Herald shows only
nine likely to be Republican with three
in doubt, while In, Missouri, which now
has six Republican Representatives,
only one seems sure of re-election and
two districts are doubtful. Three Re
publican districts in Illinois are In
donbt and In Iowa Democrats are con
ceded a gain of three and possibly four
seats in a delegation of eleven mem
bers. BeTeridge May Lose Seat. -
There is a possibility that Repub
licans may gain one Congressional dis
trict in Indiana where they now con
trol but two out of It, but according
to the Herald there is no doubt that
the next Indiana Legislature will be
heavily Democratic thus bringing
about defeat of Senator Beverldge, In
surgent. In Kansas Democrats are accredited
with gaining two districts and are
given one -sure district In Wisconsin
with two others in doubt. Other
changes are- Indicated but the princi
pal Republican losses indicated by a
preliminary canvass are as given,
Commenting on the political situa
tion the Herald says:
"In perhaps CO Congressional dis
tricts which are close, the result will
be decided by -regulars' voting against
'insurgent' nominees and for Demo
crats and ' by 'Insurgents' voting

speed, despite the biting cold. Graiiame
White was still gaining on Delsseps,
but the Frenchman was first out across
New York Bay and around the status,
about 1000 feet above the big black bal
loon that had showed him the course.
The crowds along the Brooklyn water
front, on Governor's Island and along
the Battery shouted and waved hands
and handkerchiefs.
Lead Soon Overcome.
Then Grahame-White sent the noee of
his Bleriot around above the head of
Miss Liberty and started back along the
same course he had traveled.
DeLeaaeps still hsd a slight lesd. but
with the wind at his back, Grahame
White put on full speed and began cut
ting down his rival's advantage. Mid
way over Brooklyn the aviators were on
even terms, each at an altitude of be
tween 3000 and 3000 feet, but reaching
the outskirts of the city, Grahame
White forged ahead and set sail In earn
est for . Belmont Park.
De Lesseps kept directly In the Eng
lishman's wake and now and then could
be seen working his control in sn en
deavor to get greater eveed from his ma
chine, which was fast falling behind.
Both men continued to fly above the
railroad track.
Passing back over Jamaica. Grahame
White had a lead of about two miles.
Arriving at the aviation Held, the Eng
lishman started his descent from a height
of about 3000 feet. He came down in a
graceful sweep over the tops of the
great trees with the nose of his machine
pointed downward at an angle of 40 de

Leseeps came down from a level of SOOO

If Moissant was having trouble he did
not show it, for he kept winging shead.

Reaching the East River, Moissant
swept across to the NewYork shore
and passed almost above the Battery.

Then, describing a pretty half circle, he
dashed out across the bay and around
the statue.
Above the massive figure he seemed
to stop momentarily, then shoot ahead
for the return to the aerodrome. Like
the two rivals who had preceded him,
Moissant had the wind at his back and
sped across Brooklyn at a mlle-a-min-ute
Lower Level Chosen.
Once be deviated from his course and
followed the elevated railroad struc
ture, but. finding himself going wrong,
he turned again toward the tracks of
the Long Island Railroad and followed
them back to Belmont Park.
Moissant did not fly at the high alti
tudes of Grahame-Whlte and
seps. Probably 2000 feet was his aver
age, but often he was below that. Cer
tainly he was not much above 1500 feet
when he reached the aerodrome. Ha
was numb with cold when he alighted,

his time for the IS miles showed that
he had accomplished the feat at better

Man Counts 75 Per Cent in
Flying, Says Expert. .
Inventors' Attention Turns to Prob
lem of Slotors- and to Achiev
ing Stability Rlectririty Is
Receiving Study.
' WASHINGTON. Oct SO. Multifarious
as are the new devices which are being
applied to the navigation of the air,
none is likely to be found to take the
place of brains In the aviators. This
is the opinion of James H. Colewell,
the patent office expert, who has Im
mediate charge of all flying machine
inventions, and who has given personal
attention to almost every application
for a patent In that line. Summing up
his views today, he said:
"Ten per cent of the success of every
aerial flight is due to the machine, 15
per cent to the motor and 75 per cent
to the man. The man of indecision,
poor Judgment, weak nerves or slow
judgment is as much out of place In an
airship as a defective motor.
"Airship - Invention has received a
stirring Impetus within the last few
years, and there Is no more reliable
Index to this activity .than that dis
played by the records of the patent of
fice. It began with the first exhibi
tions of the Wright Brothers on the
North Carolina coast and has Increased
in geometric ratio since, with the con
sequence that to date about 3000 pat
ents have been Issued on these ma
chines or on devices connected with
them. Tbe bureau is now handling aa
average of about 90 cases a month.
"The Patent Office regards as estab
lished the- principle of the plane In this
method of transit, and the inventive
genius of the world is now concentrat
ing its attention largely upon the mo
tive power. Electricity as a motive
power Is being the subject of careful
Inquiry. The weight of the electric
motor is a bar to its use in aerial craft,
and tt is feared that no progress can
be made until a way It found of gath
ering this force from ihe atmosphere.
"Much attention also is being given
by Inventors to stabilizing," by which
is meant the keeping of an air car in
the right position. In rase of accident,
the machines have a tendency to turn
turtle. Already vast Improvements
have been made.
"Inventors also are seeking for Im
proved methods of rising and alighting.
The air men want a machine which can
lift Itself suddenly from the ground,
like a bird, and which can' light any
where. To satisfy this demand, the
Inventors are turning their attention to
the horizontal -screw, such as is used
in water In connection with subma
rine boats."

I say, therefore, calmly but emphati
cally, that foreigners In China are dwell
ing in a state of Imminent danger. The
balance is so delicately set between
p?ace and massacre that -x very little
cause would turn it to the side of blood
shed. Therefore. I warn as many as my
views may reach to be prepared for
serious happenings In China at any time.
I have gone through one rebellion with
in the past two months that caused but
little stir among Western capitals. That
outbreak was suppressed on the surface.
But the spirit Is still there; it animates
not merely southwest China, but almost
every province of the Interior.
The riots of Changsha are still the
talk of the masses. The whole of the
Yangtse Valley is more or less dis
turbed; from north, south, east, west
come tales of simmering discontent snd
disapproval of the gentry and official
classes. It is but a hairsbreadth from
that to hatred of all foreigners.
Even" in Yunnan, a province bordered
by the British In Burma and the French
in Tonkin, removed but a few days from
the throbbing centers of civilization,
riots and disorders are as rife ss any
where in the Empire. On the borders of
Indo-Chlna. the famous revolutionary
Sun Yct-Sen. with his keen foresight and
Iron will, plots for the triumph of the
antl-Manchu movement and the subver
