WASHINGTON, Sept. 2S.-President
Wilson informed callers this morning that
ho Is still of tho opinion that tho Alex
ander ship purchase bill, providing for a
Government-controlled lino of steamships
to bo used In the South American trade,
should be passed at this session of Con
gress. He made it clear that ho would
not abandon this measure because of the
opposition that has developed among tho
Democrats of tho House who are opposed
to tho measure.
Tho President Insists on a world
glrdllng merchant maiino that will not
only capture commerce In nil channels,
but will retain It.
Following his conference with tho
newspaper correspondents at 10:30 o'clock
this morning, the President received Ma
jority Leader Underwood and Itejiresen
tatlvo Alexander. They called at the
White House, It Is understood, to tell tho
President of Hio threatened split In the
Democrntlo ranks of tho House if tho
ship purchase measure Is pressed by the
Administration at this session. President
Wilson Is believed to have informrd Ttep
icsentatlves Underwood nnd Alexander
that somo stronger reason must bo pre
sented for dropping tho Alexander bill
from the Admlnlstiatlon's legislative
Thu opposition In tho House to tho
passage of the measure seems to be well

WASHINGTON, Sept. 2S. "Wonderful,
but startlingly reckless," said President
Wilson today when Lincoln Beachcy, the
aviator, turned a double aerial somer
sault over the White House grounds somo
1W0 feet up in the air. Tho President
watched the all man drive his tiny aero
plano through hair-raising evolutions and
heaved a sigh of relief when tho ma
chine darted off In a straight lino toward
tho Capitol at the, other end of Penn
Beachcy, Induced to como here by Cap
tain Mark L. Bristol, chief of the Navy
Aviation Bureau, was supposed to dem
onstrate to the law makers tho necessity
for greater appropilations for Hying ma
chines for the u.so of both the navy and
army. It was his task to demonstrate
the complete control man now had in
When ho reached the Cnpitol the Sen
ate and House olllce buildings ueio
quickly emptied. Committee meetings
broke up as If by magic, and Senators
and Representatives, with a small army
of clerks and stenographers, crowded out
of the big building to take up positions
In the pluza.
Beachy signalized his arrival over tho
dome of the Capitol by turning four back
somersaults in his machine in lapid suc
cession. Then he circled tho dome thrice
and darted back again down Pennsyl-
anla avenue. He dKed for tho tall
tower of tho Postolllce Department,
skimmed over It and up until when tie
leached tho Washington monument ho
was morothan Iirt) feet aloft.
After alighting in Potomac Park tho
aWator readjusted some parts of his
engine and went up ugnin after a wait
of 2U minutes. Tho Piesldent again
watched him as he executed fancy llg
urjs against tho blue sky. Tho nirmun

J'KTIIOOHAD, Scpt. 29.
It Is officially announced that a great
battle has commenced between tho Ger
mans nnd the Russians along tho lino of
the railroad Just Inside of the East Prus
sian frontier. Tho battlo lino extends
from far to the north of l.ydtkuhncn
through Goldapp to Lyck.
Tho Oermans ato declared to bo
stiongly entrenched nnd to have been
very heavily reinforced. Because of thu
nature of the territory In which tho light
ing Is In progress It Is likely that It' will
be sovcral days beforo a definite result
can be obtained.
The Russian army now engaged Is bo
Ing heavily rclnfoiced from tho main re
serve army with headquarters at War
saw. The weather Is very bad, alternate
sleet nnd rain falling and making speedy
movements of troops almost Impossible.
Tho War Ofllce reports retreat of tho
Gorman forces that Invaded Russian Po
land. This Is attributed to news of tho
continued success of the Russians In
Gatlciu. It Is expected that the retiring
Germans will be drawn back to strengthen
tho Kallsz-Cracow lino with the purpose
of withstanding tho Russian march on
Silesia. The ictreatlng Germans are be
ing pursued by General Rennenkampf's
forces, strengthened by tho garrIons from
Kovno and Vllaa. They engaged tho re
treating Germans at Sopocklnlo and Drus
skcntkl, In the Suwalkl district, and In
flicted heavy losses.
General Rcnnenknmpf reports that the
German soldiers whom ho lias been op
posing are Held corps, probably brought
from the western theatre of war and
replaced there by reserves. Ho says that
reliable reports have reached him that
Kmpror William himself Is directing tho
operations against the Russians.
(Former reports have had the Gorman
Kmperor at headquarters In Luxemburg,
and It is believed in Paris that he is
directing the battlo of the Als-ne. Be
cause ot tho strict censorship at Berlin
It Is Impossible to learn of his exact
whereabout!), though tho olllclal reports
there have Intimated ho was In the west
ern war theatre.)
General Rennenkampf adds In his re
port that the Germans have attempted to
capture Ossowlec (southeast of Lyck),
but that they wero unable to bring up
their big guns.
"Tho German forces crossed tho border
at four points." he Kays. "They showed
