Young Woman Flies Chicago to New York Breaks All Records

Diminutive but Dargin Aviatrix Beat Victor CArlstorm's Record in One-stop Record and Early This Morning ResumedH er Thrilling Flight to New York City, Flying Rate of 100 Miles an Hour-First Woman to Make  Such a Long Aerial Flight-Has Extraordinary Record of Venturesome Feats in Air.

NEW YORK. Nov. 20.-Ruth Law has reached this city in her great flight from Chicago to New York. 
She reached this city at 9:30 A. M.

NEW YORK, Nov. 20.-The record-breaking airplane flight of Ruth Law, begun yesterday in Chicago, terminated at Governor's Island here at 9:40 A. M. today after stops at Hornell and Binghamton, N. Y.

Additional Water Diversion Will Furnish About 14,000 Horse Power,

Under a special permit from Secretary of War BAker, the Niagara Falls Power Company may until January 1st divert an additional quantity of water to relieve the power situation in Buffalo. Congressman Charles Bennett Smith who returned last evening from Washington in company with Charles R. Huntley of the Buffalo General Electric Company, was largely repsonsible for obtaining this concession.
This concession, which permits of the diversion of an additional 1,400 cubic feet per second at Niagara Falls, will become effective within a week, and relief  from the power shortage in Buffalo will be immediate, especially as the General Electric Company expects to have the River Road steam plant in partial operation, delivering 8,000 horsepower. The additional water diversion will furnish about 14,000 horse-power.
"Secretary Baker," said Representative Smith last night, "told me when I saw him on receipt of the telegram from Commissioner Hodson of the Public Service Commission that he would not permit the diversion of a single extra cubic foot of water at Niagara Falls.
"Mr. Huntley and I went over the Buffalo situation with Mr. Baker. We showed him the trouble that the Buffalo manufacturers were experiencing since Ontario placed its embargo on exportation. 
"Secretary Baker reversed his decision. He said that he would permit the Niagara Falls Power Company to take the additional 1,200 or 1,400 cubic feet of water from the river during the peak-load hours in the morning and evening. This special permission would expire on January 1st.
The Rev. Dr. A. V. V. Raymond, pastor of the First Presbyterain Church, criticized persons who make excuses, who give false reasons for doing or not doing a thing. His text was: "And they all with one consent, began to make excuses," Luke 14: 18.

BINGHAMTON, Nov. 20. - Miss Ruth Law, aviatrix, left here at 7:20 A. M. on the last leg of her Chicago-New York flight. She will land about 9:0 on Governor's island. 
Before Leaving for New York Miss Law said she expected to make another 1[[fl?]]ight over the same course withon a few weeks. She hopes at that time to go through without a stop. She arose to a height of about 1,000 feet as she ascended here this morning and was quikly out of sight. 
Speeding along in an aeroplane of obsolete model, plump and smiling, Miss Law made a non-stop cross-country world's record in her flight here and is today, probably,the champion woman flyer of the world.

Did Better Than Carlstrom. 
Miss Law did much better in her "one-horse shay" of the air than Victor Carlstrom did in his carefully groomed and up-to-the-minute model flyer. Both aimed for New York City. Miss Law came nearer to it than did Carlstrom, flying 595 miles. Gas shortage brought her down.
With an hour and a half more in the air and a little more gas she would have accomplished the feat of linking New York and Chicago between sunrise and sunset. "I'm not a bit tired and the machine's all right," was Miss Law's message when she stepped out of her machine.
She left Chicago at 7:30 Western time, skirted Lake Michigan, darted over the Ohio and Indiana flat lands, edged along LAke Erie and then shot into New York.

Direct Witness to Appear Wednesday In Trial of J. E. Teiper

Deputy Sheriffs Serve Subpoena as Defense and Prosecution Strive to Fill Jury Box Today. Four New Panels of Talesmen Sworn Iin.

While lawyers today at the opening of the fourth day of the trial of John Edward Teiper, accused of murdering his mother, earnestly sought to complete the jury, sheriff's deputies were serving subpoenas upon witnesses directing them to appear on Wednesday.
Two young men who came upon the scene of the slaying a short period after Mrs. Teiper and her son, Frederick, had been murdered, and Grace, a daughetr, almost beaten to death, it is understood, have subpoenaed and will be importaqnt witnesses.
Nine men sat in the jury box when court re-opened at 10 o'clock. It is believed the jury will be obtained by tonight, but other preliminaries will consumer Tuesday and the actual taking of the testimony will not begin until Wednesday at least.
Four ney panels were sworn in today, so the counsel were not confronted with a scarcity of talesmen for examination. Even after the jury is completed it is predicted at least a month will be taken in submitting the case of the young Orchard Park brick manufacturer.

Have Examined 108 Men.
In the three days of the trial so far District Attorney Guy B. Moore and Attorney Edward R. O'Malley, for the defense, have examined 108 men. The counsel proceeded very carefully today in their examinations.
Teiper spend a quiet day at the jail annex yesterday. When he awakened today and prepared to go to the city hall, he was cheerful and as confident as ever thatthe would be absolved of all blame in connection with the killing. On Friday afternoon he appeared a mite disconsolate, but this morning he seemed much refreshed. He sleeps and eats well, converses freely with the jail attendants and appears in no way unnerved. His faitful wife and brother, C. Harry Teiper, visited him at the jail yesterday morning. However, he spent an afternoon without visitors. 
Up to date one man has been excused from jury service after having been selected by both sides. There was a rumor this morning that another one might step from the box upon consent of the court and both sides. This rumor, however, could not be confirmed. 
Teiper's relatives, who have been at hi selbow every day since the trial started, were on hand as usual this morning long before a deputy sheriff escorted hi minto the court room. Teiper walks from the jail to the court room daily shackled to a sheriff's attendant.

John Neeley, 24 years old, of No. 24 Stone Street, was arrested yesterday by Detectives Ryan and Murphy, of the Franklin Street station, charged with assault, second degree. Neeley is a motorman on the Clinton Street line and, according to the officers, hit John Wajsteep, 32 years old, of No. 108 Erickson Avenue, on the head with a controller handle during an argument over a transfer. Wajsteep was taken to the Emergency Hospital. 

BERLIN, Nov. 20.-(By wireless to Sayville).-According to the Central identification office at Kiev, Russia, says the Overseas News Agency, the number of Russian casualties since June 1, 1916, has reached 100,621 officers and 2,027,853 men.

The International Situation Engage's the President's Attention.
Expects to Deal with All Foreign Questions Without Embarrassment. 
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20.-A portentous and complicated international situation now faces President Wilson and for the next few weeks will engage his attention and that of his advisers to the virtual exclusion of all but the most urgent of domestic subects. In the last days of the campaign Secretary of State Lansing frequently spoke of the necessity of [[postulating a policy on the more [[?]]]] international questions because the uncertainty of the outcome of the political contest had a diect bearing on the success or failure on some of the administration policies.
From now on the President expects to deal with all foreign questions without embarrassment and he is receiving from his advisers a summary of the outstanding issues so essential to taking stock of the basic situation which must be met now that international relations have returned to their place of prime importance. While it is not evident that there will be any fundamental change in policy, fear that any move at all would be misinterpreted as inspired by an internal struggle has been removed. President Wilson and Secretary Lansing feel themselves avle to act with a single eye to the international situation, and their immediate conference on the President's return to Washington indicates how pressing they feel the situation to be.

President to Decide Problems.
The President must deicide how the United States shall meet the German submarine situation on the one hand and entente allied trade restrictions on the other, whether retaliatory legislation shall be enforced, whether the traditional theory of isolation shall be abandoned for concerted neutral action, and whether the country shall have an aggressive or a passive policy toward the peace conference, the war after the war, and the permanent league to enforce peace which the President has accepted in theory, and during the rest of the war, shall America's attitude be governed by a decided benevolence in the interpretation of international law according to its own best interests, or shall it be strictly legalistic, regardless of whom it affects?
Most spectacular and disuieting of the problems is the submarine situation with eGrmany. Five critical cases are pending, one involving a loss of six American lives, two others involving American ships. Germany is knowns to be building submarines rapidly, and there is the possibility of a starvation campaign against England. Its effects would concern all nations. The United States might find it difficult to avoid complications.

American Attitude Final.
The American attitude is flat and final. No technicalities will be admitted. Ships must not be sunk without warning or without provision for the safety of passengers  on the high seas. The armed ships issue undoubtedly will be advanced by Germany, but will not be accepted. Secretary Lansing foresaw it last March when, without announcing his reason, he decreed that merchant vessels could carry a small defensive gun. If that endangers submarines that is part of their weakness. The United States, anxious as a pacific nation opposed to armament to increase the power of submarines, recognizes their shortcomings, especially in their vulnerability if surprised and attacked.
The future of the submarine situation is elt to rest entirely with Germany. With the American attitude known, the next step must come from Berlin. Two possibilities are feared-either that Germany will decide she can starve England by an undersea campaign, or that she may endeavor to involve this country and thus insure the participation in peace conferences of a generous enemy inclined toward just peace terms. 
Beyond this the Lusitania case remains unsettled, Germany has admitted liability and offered indemnity, but the delicate matter of its amount has not been settled. Attempts made to close the issue have been repeatedly blocked  by unexpected new U-boat complications.

German Government or army Having Nothing to Do with Any peace Talk.
People Not Worried Over Outcome of War-Are Confident of Ultimate Success.

(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
BERLIN, Nov. 20.-The public regarded skentically, so far as immediate action is converned, Washington reports via Switzerland and London that President Wilson may take some kinds of steps for peace. The government itself is having nothing to do with peace talk nor is the army. The army is concentrating its efforts towards winning.

A general attitude toward American Ambassador Gerard is changing.  He will probably find himself more popular when he returns than he was six months ago.  There is a seemingly well founded report here that before Gerard, departed officials asked him to returns, even in the event of President Wilson's defeat, and to remain as long as possible.

Reports Cause Discussion.
But as far as the general public is concerned the reports of peace steps are causing universal discussion.  The growth of sentiment for an international agreement to prevent other wars is evidenced by efforts of German newspapers to obtain from Isaac Wolf, president of the American Chamber of Commerce, ideas as to the American League to Enforce Peace.
The Newspaper Germania and its sister conservative organ, the Tages Zeuitung, both say that Wilson should make peace--but these views hardly represent public sentiment or the official viewpoint.
The Germania article declared that if Sire Edward Grey for England, Chancellor Bethmann-Hollweg for Germany and President Wilson really want universal peace after the war, now is the time to get together.
With all this discussion of peace Germany is a unit is casting aide any fears for defeat.  Everyone declares there is still considerable of a punch left and the success of the Rumanian offensive and the Germans U boat cruiser warfare is particularly cited.

Allies Striving t Close in Furth[[?]] Retreating T
Fall of Monastir Causes Rejoicin
Valkans Now Center of Inter
Fronts--Allies Continue 
By United Press Cable.
SOFIA, Nov. 20.-- Sanguinary repulse of renewed allied attacks in the Cerna bend region near Monastir was asserted in today's official statement from the Bulgarian War Office.
Loss Unimportant Says Berlin.
BERLIN Nov. 20 -- (By wireless to the Associated Press to Sayville.)-- The Macedonian town of Monastir was evacuated during the night by the German and Bulgarian troops, who retired to prepared positions further north.  They thus withdrew from highly unfavorable positions in the plain where they were exposed to artillery fire from the heights to the south and southeast of the town.
The news of the evacuation of Monastir does not come as a surprise, the Associated Press having been informed some days ago by the military authorities that the question whether Monastir's political importance was great enough to justify the military sarrifices necessary to defend the town was being weighed by the general staff and that military considerations probably would prevail.
Russia to Punish Bulgaria.
PETROGRAD, via London, Nov. 20, 2:59 A. M.--A firmly worded pronouncement that the Russian government has set for itself the task of punishing Bulgaria for her "ingratitude and treachery," in turning against her mother and protector, Russia, appears today in a semi-official communication.
"Russia if firmly resolved," says the communication, "to punish the personages of the Bulgarian government, who treacherously allied their country with enemies of her invariable protector, who gave her political existence and sufferance so many sacrifices for her.  Russia will not deem herself bound to wreak vengeance for her just indignation on the defenseless Bulgarian population.  But Bulgaria as a sovereign unit will be held responsible for this unprecedented crime.
"By disseminating, as recently, malicious calumnies regarding alleged Russian atrocities, Bulgaria will not force Russia to turn aside an iota from her fixed purpose, nor will she gain fresh laurels for her black treachery toward Russia and Slavism and the just cause for which the entente is fighting."
Monastir Saptured.
PARIS, Nov. 20.--French troops this morning captured from the German and Bulgarian forces the chief Southern Serbian town of Monastir, according to an official announcement made this afternooon by the French war department.

By Associated Press.
LONDON, Nov. 20.--With rain and sleet interfering with full resumption of operations along the Somme it was the Balkans that furnished most of the war news today. 
Italian advices served to increase the brilliance of Gen. Serrail's French-Russian-Italian-Serbian victory in the taking of Monastir.
It is now doubted here that the German-Bulgarian forces can make complete escape from the encircling vise of the allied flanking movement.  Desperate fighting is proceeding as the allies strive to close in still further on the retreating Teutons.  Roads churned into a sea of mud from snow and mud will, it is believed, make it impossible for the Teuton forces to proceed with sufficient maste in their retreat to accomplish a complete withdrawal of forces an equipment.  Moreover it appears that far from being content with mere occupation of the city, the allied forces are still thrusting forward in their drive.
Prilep to which city the enemy is withdrawing, is about 24 miles to the north.  The war is for the most part across level ground with very few natural defensive features.
