After flying 120 miles of his ocean to ocean trip, Fowler landed safely at Auburn Monday night at the foot oi the Sierra Nevada mountains over expected to fly Tuesday. There was no accident on the first lap of tbe long flight. Fowler started from Golden Gate park without any "stunts" to please the crowd1. He was going after the big prize and started at it in a businesslike way. He was the coolest of the crowd which gathered to see the start and arose in the air with a boyish grin on his face. The bay lay a full thousand feet below his whirling propellers when Fowler swept across. The wind sweep- ing in through the Golden Gate was fresh and strong. Before this breeze when he reached the bay he curved around the eastern nob of Goat island. And then, free from, the com- pelling urge of the or-ean breeze, he pwept aroimd again in a wider circle flashed high over the gaping city of Oakland and struck the straight air line for Sacramento.

From prospects the conference bids fair to equal if not to surpass those of the past, both as to attendance and busi- ness transacted.

Governor Hay, of Washington, dis- cussing the divorce question, said: "Existing conditions are a travesty justice, for a man who cannot do a certain thing in one state sieps into his auto, crosses the state line and can do just what the laws of his state forbid. I believe there should be a minimum residence limit and time limit for remarriage." Governors Durke of North Dakota and Gilchrist of Florida favored mat ins the residence limit five years and a corresponding time limit for remar- riage. The governors today seemed practi- jcally unanimous in the opinion that inadequate anti-divorce laws are threatening the very foundation of American life.

Sept. from farms and villages on the slope of Mt. Etna are pouring into Catania today. The eruption from the main .crater and smaller ones are steadily increasing in violence. The air in Catania, is almost unbreathable from the clouds of ashes. A new fissure has opened above Lin- guaglossa, which lie? at the foot of Mt. Edna and brilliant flashes are seen. Lava is now descending and threatens the villages. It has reached the edge of the woods. It is estimated that in all 14 new fissures have open- ed, and they are emitting smoke, ash- es and lava. Even the streets of Ca- tania are covered with ashes. Rumbling of earth shocks at short intervals is heard for miles. The shocks are growing in violence, and a panic prevails. The fear of the people is augmented by the great heat and suffocating atmosphere. All the coun- try round about is covered with ashes and seems under an immense funeral pall. Several houses have been damaged by the earthquakes, and hundreds of men, women and who are without shelter, go about from place to place carrying jjictures of the saints and imploring mercy.

Diegle is either very keen for notorie- ty and publicity, or he is awfully afraid of being disfranchised, and be- ing made a prisoner of the state. Which is true, is uncertain, and no one would like to know more fully which end Diegle has in view than At- torney General Hogan or Prosecuting Attorney Edward Turner. Just about the time it was general- ly supposed that Diegle was disposed of for the next two years and a few weeks over, when sentence had been passed, through his attorneys he makes application for the privilege to turn state's evidence. But first he makes sure that he can have the sen- tence hanging over him suspended. Then he holds a Sunday conference with the state's attorneys, and the next chapter sees him mysteriously leaving the city, seeking the cooler Windham sez i atmosphere of a state further east, and leaving his former attorneys "up in the worst tor- i the air" as to his whereabouts.

They added that The big fair is on. Tuesday aft- ernoon saw the tented city at the Erie county fair grounds practi- cally complete, the exhibits near- ly all in place in the various build- ings and Aviator LeVan ready for his first exhibition fiights. Tues- day afternoon also found Secre- tary Zerbe all smiles over the out- look for the best fair and biggest attendance known at the present grounds. It required a small army or workers Tuesday morning to whip things into shape for the aft- ernoon. A fair sized crowd was on the grounds Tuesday after- noon. LeVan's first flight, scheduled I 1 p. m., was delayed because of the high wind but at 3 o'clock he was pre- paring to attempt to go into the air, probably at 4 o'clock. The most noticeable improvement at the grounds this year is the secre- tary's new office, a handsome little concrete and tile building, now al- most complete, and located just east of the grandstand. The building is in. itself an exhibit for the Hinde Briefc Tile Co., which furnished tae .ma- terial for the structure. The Spaca under the grandstand, formerly oc- cupied by the secretary for an has been taken this year by J. H. Her- man, who has decorated and 'papered the walls and fitted tne apartment no as a rest room, free to all. The ex- hibit makes a beautiful home fornisn- ings display. The floral hall, as in past years, is beautifully decorated -and every inclt of available space is taken by exhibit- ors. The following is a list of firms and companies having booths: Andres Frey, Pnsch Martin Co., Tae Singer Sewing Machine Co., Bell Ti phone Dilgart Bittner, Smi Bates Hardware Co., Bauman Herb Myers, C. V. Baomgardnet-, N. B. Marshall, George P, Windisch, Holzaepfel Metropolitan Insur- ance Co., and J. F. Renner. Tbe ex- hibits are almost without exception the most complete and beautiful ever shown at a county, fair here. In the fruit hall, the big feature Is. the Star-Journal torn and-potato con- test exhibit Occupying the northeast space of the hall, several hundred samples of corn and potatoes, the fin- est and largest in Erie, Ottawa and Huron counties, are shown. Over three hundred entrance blanks were taken out for this contest, although not quite that number are in actual competition. Beside the giant .ears com and the big potatoes, the big prizes offered by the Star-Journal are on display. The booth is decorated with pennants. In the manufacturers' hall. George J. Bing has a carriage and buggy-.dis- play which occupied nearly the entire space. The various farm wagon and farm implement displays are scatter- ed over the grounds and are larger than for a number of years past. NeiU Bros, have a big exhibit. The big attraction at the grounds, of course, is the Red Devil, LeVan's aeroplane. His hangor is located just west of the grand stand while the aeroplane, when on display and ready for flight, is located on the space in- side the speed ring. The side-show and concession men are out in full force also. The tent- ing arrangement is siich that the (Continued on Page 5) LI OF SIM Temperature year ago, 69.
