.New York, April 2U. I'ncle Sam to
day opened bids for the construction
of 'two dirigible bulloons for the United
States navy. This is regarded as the
first step towards llie testing out by
this government of the value of the
Zeppelin type of aircraft, which has
already played a prominent part in
the Kuropean war.
Henry Woodhouse. chairman of the
dirigible eommittee of the Aero C'lub
of American, received from the navy
department last mouth, a batch of pro
posed blanks, and through the efforts
of Mr. Woodhouse, it is believed New
Vork aeronautical circles have become
interested in this latest effort on the
part of the navy to bring its aircraft
efficiency up to the high standard
maintained by Kuropean powers.
The proposals call for the manufac
ture of two dirigibles of the, non-rigid
type, which will nut be over 17.5 feet
long by fifty feet high and 115 feet
wide, capable of currying u load of
2,000 pounds or more, I'ncle Sam's
new dirigibloB must also be able to
ascend to at least .1.W0 feet with a
full load without disposing of ballast
and must be able, also to come down
not slower than six feet per second.
It's not an easy matter to build an
airship under such rigid ipialifications.
Not only must the craft have a speed
of 25 miles or so per hour but must be
uble to keep up such speed for at least
two hours. She will carry a ear with
an enclosed body sufficient to carry a
crew of S men.
Another unusual feature of the new
navy airships will he their ability, as
specified in the proposals of contrac
tors, to rest lightly on the water with
out damage nml also, to move through
the water at slow speed.
When completed, the new dirigibles
will be set up at the navv aeronautical
station, nt I'eusacola. Fin., where a
number of trials will be made to see
Hint the airenit't comes up to all re
quirements. Some of the stunts they
must perform are interesting.
The first test will lie lor speed, with
the dirigibles loaded to capacity. She
will make five runs ever a measured
course mid navv officers will thus be
enabled to check up accurately on her
real speed. The sc.imi.I lest will show
the craft's ability to "climb'' from
the surface of the water up to and be
yond Hie specified allilude at full
Once in the air, her height will lie
laken with a barograph and she will
begin the descent ill an effort to make
the sixfeet-aseinud requirement
specified in tlie coutruct. After these
tests are made, tin. airship will be re
quired to fly steadily for two hours at
a speed of 25 miles per hour or more.

Forty-Six Aliens Are Deported
To Native States And
Countries Today
Two carloads of patients from the in
sane asylum left the city this jnorning
for deportation, or repatriation, to
eastern states ajid foreign countries.
The shipment totaled 4G patients, rep
resenting the largest that has ever been
sent away from the Oregon institutions
in the history of the state, and many
of them are to be sent back to Mexico,
Norway, Sweden, Italy, Kastem Canada
and other foreign countries. They are
in charge of Drs. J. ('. Evan9, of the
main institution, and J. I. McKelway,
of the eastern Oregon asylum, who will
go "lear back to New York City with
the patients.
Siace the first of the year 100 pa
tients have been sent out of tho state
from the main building anil the Pendle
ton braach asylum, which makes more
room at these institutions for the re
ceipt of more patietits and relieves the
congested conditions considerably. The
fund of $5000 provided by the last leg
islature for the repatriation of insane
patients and criminals trom this state
is just about exhausted, and there will
be few patients deported until further
provision is made, either by the emer
gency board or the next legislature, to
pay the expenses.
