BREAKS ALTITUDE RECORDS.
Amateur Brooklns Excels Paulhan's
Indianapolis, June II. Walter S.
Brookitis of Dayton, an nmnteur pilot,
established n new world's altitude rec
ord for aeroplanes when he ascended
feet In a Wright biplane. The
previous record was -1,105 feet, made
by Paulfian at Los Angeles, In Jiinu
ary. Brooklns' feat wns performed
under nlmost perfect ntmospherlc con
ditions. Wilbur nnd 0;jyilo Wright
personally superintended the arrange
ments for tho flight.
Brooklns was In the nlr thirty min
utes. He made n beautiful landing.
Tho Wright brothers, who are here to
establish new records, according to
the statements of their associates,
were enthused grently over Brooklns'
performance. Wilbur Wright said that
(lights like the one Brooklns mnde
never have been witnessed In this
country and that his success demon
strated thnt the aeroplane will have
n fixed place In the world of sports.
He suld that Brooklns had his first
experience three months ago as n pi
lot, but he made only n few flights
before coming here.
Brooklns established two other rec
ords. He nscended 11.000 feet hi seven
and a half minutes nnd -4,000 In twen
ty-one minutes and thirty-five seconds.
According to the register of the In
struments, announced by A. B. Lam
bert of St. Louis, olllclnl timekeeper.
Brooklns was 1,000 feet in the nlr
seven minutes nfter he left the earth.
Ho rose to that point in a wide circle.
The whirr of the propellers was then
lost to the throng of spectators nnd
the neroplnne nppeared only n cross
floating In the sky.
Continuing his circles Brooklns rose
steadily nt a speed estimated at sixty
miles nn hour. Thirty minutes after
ho had started he had reached his
highest altitude and began the descent,
maneuvering nt lower and lower lev
els until nt a height of 100 feet he
shut off the motor nnd glided easily

The Wright brothers and the othe

a speech In the senate by Senator Dol
liver of Iowa, one of the leaders of the
insurgents. The Iowa senator tool;
the floor to discuss tho provision ot

$250,000 for the investigation of the

himself largely to the rclutlons of the
Insurgents to the Republican party.
Declaring that ho Is a disciple of par
ty harmony and good will, Senatoi
Dolliver said ho was unable to compre
hend the bitterness with which men In
the Republican party have been re
vlled for tho views they entertain.
"Why should I bo reviled," ho asked,
"for opposing the wool schedule,
which was framed forty-two years ago
and opposed by party leaders at tin
time? It appears thnt there Is no Ion
ger the freedom of opinion nnd Judg-'
ment in the Republican party thai
mado It so strong and powerful."
Referring to Speaker Cannon, tin
Iowa senator said: "In speaking of h
colleagues that honorable gentleman
says they ought to be hanged. I pay
no more attention to what ho say
than do most people. But unfortu
nately thero aro some people who take
"What has como over the Republican
purty," nsked the Iowa senator, "that
freedom of discussion and debate are
now considered Insolence?"
Senator Dolliver said It was disagree
able for him to tell of the things that
had (rone on In tho party since the
passogo of tho tariff bill, but ho said
that his remarks would not be neces
tary hud the president loft senators
and members free to settlo their differ
duces with their constituents. He eon
sured Mr. Tuft for using his great of
fice to take the side of tho regulars.
Senator Dolliver characterized the
etatoment that tho tariff hud been re
vised downward aB n "gigantic swin

to be decreases as a "subtorfugo" and
