I SHERWOOD'S FLYER REGULARS WORRY i t PATENT LAWYER SMITH, NOW SKKKING STRONG, LIGHT EN GINE, WILL MAKE TlUAIi TRIP THIS PALL, IT IS EXPECTED MAY SAIL OYER FORT MEYER PARADE GROUND. Earl Sherwood swore up nnd down yesterday that when he gets back to Washington, say about the first of September, one of the first jobs he will tackle will be the per fection of the neroplane In which, ho says, he and Rexford M. Smith, the patent lawyer he has had helping htm in the Fnrnham case, are equally Interested. "I may not make the first trip into the air myself," said the Washing ton lawyer, "for I am rather of a heavy man to be shooting up Into blue space in nn airship. I think Smith, who is the builder, the prac tical man, will make the first flight alone. He understands the opera ting as well as the construction of the thing and he is about GO pounds lighter than I. He won't weigh much, if any, over 1G0. I weigh a little more than 200." The principal prouiem about the Smith-Sherwood ship Just now, he said, is to get an engine at once light and strong. When that is installed, as Mr. Sherwood sayS It will be this fall, the sky pilot, Law yer Smith, will be ready to go up. Air. Sherwood said he didn't know yet whether or not Smith would try to imitate Orville Wright's feat and sail over Fort Meyer parade ground, just across the Potomac from Wash ignton, at a 42-mlle-an-hour clip. Still, he did not seem to consider Fort Meyer an Impossibility. Rexford M. Smith Is one of the bright minds of the country when it comes to patent law. His main of fice is In Washington and there he keeps 10 men at work all the time, drawing up specifications and look ing after the technicals of the office. He visits the office for about an hour a day, and much of his time out side is spent at the shop where his aeroplane is being touched up. .air. -Sherwood does not know juBt when he will have to be In Wash ington to argue his big case. The attorney-general has 30 days to answer the brief Mr. Sherwood filed just before he left Washington July 1 for Honesdale. "It took me 60 days to get up that brief, and I don't think he'll answer It in 30. He'll get an extension of time. He'll need CO days to answer If he's able to answer at all," said he. Mr. Sherwood is enjoying his rest in Wayne county. He meets people every day whom he is glad to see and who, in turn, are glad to see him. He says they shall all have a picture a big one, suitable for, framing when the Smith-Sherwood airship makes its appearance in the sky. ENGAGED TO JAY GOULD.

UNEASY IX MINNESOTA OVER CONSERVATION CONGRESS THltESII OUT ISSUES TODAY GOVERNOR EltEHHAKT AND OTHEIt CAXDIDATES PEAK EF FECT UPON STATE VOTE, fp Washington, July 14. A merry row has started over the conservation con gress scheduled to meet In St Paul on Sept. 0, and the Minnesota city may withdraw Its invitation to GIfford Pin chot and his followers. This situation has been presented by the action of Mr. Pinehot nnd his associates In making up n program of speeches for the congress which the local managers believe will stir up trouble and possibly react on the Re publican party in the state primaries to be held in September. According to information obtained here, Governor Kberhart, who Is a can didate for re-election, nnd other Re- publicans in Minnesota are all "het. up" over the situation. A few weeks ago they were tickled over having lauded the big congress, but now they are going around under the Impression that they have a good, big "white ele phant" on their hands. Colonel Roose velt Is one of the speakers that Mr. Pinehot has on his list. The local St. Paul managers of the congress have given notice that they will not stand for an "all Insurgent" program such as they declare has been prepared by Pinehot. The controversy is to be threshed out nt a conference to be held in Chicago today. Mr. Pin ehot has already left for Chicago, and he will ho joined there today by B. X. Baker, president of the congress; J. B. White, another officer of the congress. and Thomas It. Shlpp, secretary of the National Conservation association, who has taken an nctive part iu making preparations for the St. Paul affair, The conservaVionists will be met in Chicago by Governor Eberhart and other anxious Republicans from Min nesota. The issue is to be settled at the Chicago conference. If the conservation officials stand pat on the Insurgent program the congress will not be held In St. Paul Minnesota Republicans' are anxious to have the conservation congress held In St. Paul, but they are ready to pro test with great heat against the pre sentation of speakers who, they be lieve, may stir up controversies that would In all probability bo ventilated in the September primaries. Among the speakers to whom excep tion has been taken by the St. Paul men are Louis D. Braudels, who rep resented I B. Glavls as attorney be-' fore the congress joint committee on inquiry into the Ballinger-Plnchot af fair. Brandeis is n strong partisan of Mr. Pinehot. The St. Paul authorities fear that if he speaks at St. Paul ho would Inject a lot of verbal fireworks into the discussion that might provoke trouble. Another speaker to whom exception has been taken Is Editor Nelson of the Kansas City Star. Messrs. Brandeis nnd Nelson are car rying a lot of anti-Tnft sentiment on their chests, aud the St. Paul board of managers are apprehensive that they plan to unload it at St. Paul. St. Paul made an active fight to land the conservation congress. It won out in n contest for the honor with Kansas City, St. Louis nnd other cities Senator Nelson of Minnesota, chairman of the committee of congress that ts inquiring Into the Balllnger Piucliot affair, was opposed to St. Paul entering the list.

Tyler lost a valuable nB on tae home team's ground, viz Millard butted into the mess, he re ceived two blows on the head from a pick and 20 or 25 blows In the same place from a hoe in the hands of Sam Reid. Who held the pick is a question somewhat in doubt, one story being that It was in the hands of Millard and another that the pick Job was the work of Leona Lord, the sister-in-law of Silas. Sam Reid got away. He went over in New York state, probably somewhere in Sullivan county. ,From the Silas Lord home to the state line Is less than 500 yards if you take.a boat and row right across the river, and Sam, his Equinunk and Honesdale acquaintances say, always kept a boat himself or knew where he could get one in a hurry. He may, of course, have crossed the Delaware on the bridge, about one mile away one story that got to Honesdale late last night was to the effect that one of Sam's pals was handy by with a swift horse and took the assailant over Into Sulli van county but it is much more probable, say Equinunk people, that Sam hopped Into a boat and rowed across the Delaware, not a very wide stream at that point, about as fast as a pair of oars could drive him. The ditch, the snme old source of wars and rumors of wars between the Lords of Equinunk, started the row. Millard went out there the first thing Tuesday morning and commenced to dig. Leona and Sam got there pretty soon. William Lord came up on the Silas Lord side of the line to see what was going William and Millard commenced : cold watch, one dress skirt and fwo for the first four proposed games underskirts and umbrella.

He saw the cousins fighting and somebody shouted to him. "I'll keep away,"' said Sike, who is CO years old. "Let the best man win." In the tussle between the two the old man got a blow from the pick and then, so goes the story, Sam Rold grabbed a hoe that lay near by and attacked Slke. The old man got something like 20 or 25 nasty cuts. He was knocked out and his son dragged him Into the house and sent for Dr. Frlsble. The doctor dressed the wounds and had Sike put to bed and kept quiet. Sike regained consciousness after a time and when members of his family asked him how he felt he simply said "Good" and lapsed Into unconsciousness again. The wounds start on top of his head and go down to the base of the brain. One large (lap of skin left hanging was as big as a door hinge. The two sons of Slke came to Honesdale Wednesday night and saw Attorney O. L. Rowland, with whom they were closeted an hour. They brought with them Mrs. H. J.
