Aldersliot England Aug. 7.
Co!. F. Cody the best known
aviator in England and his pas-
senger Evans were killed to-
day. The monoplane turned turtle
and crashed to Uu earth bury-
ing both in the wreckage.
Cody was an American by birth but
was a naturalized Englishman. He fell
200 feet. The monoplane was so
broken that it was impossible to learn
Mhe cause of the accident.
Aviators said it appeared to be due
i to some mechanical delect rather than
I a contrary air current.
Cody was a pioneer aviator and at
i one time held the cross country world's
record. It U asserted that he used
"warping wings" three years before
they were patented by tin; Wrights.
Lieut. W. E. Evans the other victim
was in the Indian civil service.

every phase of the question as to the

One of the very grave dangers at the
present is that personal insults or vio-

would force the hand of the adminis-
tration and force punishment -with an
armed force of this government. It is
hoped here that Huerta will realise
this and act accordingly.
