legislate that their party can be , swung

Charges ngainst th e administration
for aliened pittiug of politics against

London, Mar 19. (United Fress.)
(8:30 p. m.) The Bopwits airplane
company received a message Ute today
purporting to come from Aviator Harry
Hawker, stating that Hawker was then
flying 150 miles off the coast of Ire
land. His patrol, the message stated,
was nearly exhausted and h planned to
come to earth in Ireland.
London, May 19. (I'nited Press.)
(3:30 p. m.) Late this afternoon tho
British air ministry had received no
news of the whereabouts of Aviator
Hawker who jumped off from New
Foundlund luto yesterday in a Sopwith
Many rumors concerning Hawkers
flight were circulated here. One report
had it that ho had been nlghted 400
miles off the Irish coast. This report
was said to have come from the Sdpwith
offices. Another report wns to the ef
fect Hint the British airmen had been
seen off the Irish coast at 2:30 p. m.
Anxiety over Hawker's safety is in
creasing in official circles. ,
ViglUnt Watch Kept
London, May 19. A vigilant watch
was maintained along the western coast
of Ireland todav for the Sopwith bl
plunc in which Harry U. Hawker and
Lieutenant Commander Mackenzie
Grieve started from St. Johns, N. F.,
in an attempt to fly (arose the Atle-ntic.
If the flight is a success, the little
plane should be reported In sight this
morning, according to estimate of the
time required for a crossing. If it is
not a success the Sopwith will probably
never be heurd from again.
As Hawker dropped the under-carriago
from his plane in order to lighten it, he
is expected to have difficulty in making
n landing even if he should succeed In
crossing the ocean. He intends to land
on Fort Brooklund's field, near London,
provided all is going well when he
ivnehes Ireland and he is able to con
tinue his journev without alighting.
