Several slugging sensatlona were pulled off In the opening game of the new baseball league, at Covina. the new Htar« that have arisen on the horizon of famlom can maintain the pace set In the inlf.fal content, there; are going to be big crowds out, t •witness it. The game Sunday was not exciting in any way, and did not call for n> particular enthusiasm, because the home boys whaled the pill to every comer of the lot, even after Lamb had been led to slaughter in the opening inning because he was lanced for two bits. The next, twlrler to ascend the mound had nothing better, for two more runs were tallied on three swnt.8 to the tall grass by Aguayo and Spider Middaugh. After this there was only one hltloss round. Oraf only connected for a triple, a double, and •A single, while Mlddough and Miller got the extra hit bug and slammed them out for doubles and three bag- Pitcher Miller had all the best of the going. In the first inning his control was a little erratic, but Chess behlnl the bat had him throwing like a demon all the rest of the time. Tho two hits the visitors gathered at this 1irne would not hnve figured In tho. scoring, but two wild plt.oho-s let In the tallies. After this the city boys were completely at the mercy of Co- viim's clover twlrler, and with the Infield working like big leaguers, there was not tho semblance of a safety. The work of the. outfield will pass without comment. Not a thing got out that far. Aguayo picked out a slender piece of timber In tho opening Inning to start things for tho now team. A nice drive to left landed him on first; Shutt went out to first, hut Graf landed on a fielder's choice. Montague made the second out, but the Spldor was up next and landed for one base. Chess and Morwln found tho weak snot, in the opposition in thela times at bat, and managed to line it through the short each tlmo Shirley was safe on the third baseman's error, scoring Chess, making tho fourth run. Miller flow to left ending tho inning. The Schlit/. team had several Individual players that wort- above tho ordinary, but their main trouble was that they got tho Idea that It was no use to' try to land on Millar. Then Aguayo's base running was a revelation lo them. Only once did the speedy youngster make u mistake, lie ran past second with two other men on bason, and forced Miller at third. The loft fielder for the visitors was in lint; form, snaring several difficult files after long runs. Next Sunday tho Kastorn Outfitters will bo tho opposition at Covina.

WASHINGTON, July 20.-Estab- llshlng a new record for aviation In America, Orville Wright, In the Wright aeroplane, late today at Fort Myer made a spectacular flight of 1 hour 20 minutes and 45 seconds' duration. The longest previous flight was of 1 hour and 14 minutes, made by Mr. Wright at Fort Myer last fall. Several thousand people saw the most daring feat, of aviation yet accomplished. The machine traveled shout seventy miles, It was estimated by Wilbur Wright, and at. one time during the flight the heighth attained was between 260 and 280 feet, exceeding the highest, point ever reached by a heavler-than-alr machine on this continent. The most wonderful part of the flight v.os the execution of three complete "figure S's." The machine started at 0:20 o'clock. After traveling several hundred feet only about five feet from the ground, the aeroplane rose gradually to seventy-five feet, before making the first turn. RISES LIKE LARK. After passing the starting point, the avaltor sent the machine up on each turn to about 150 feet, which was maintained until toward the end of the flight. When making a turn on the sixth round of the field the aeroplane began tilting perceptibly, but Mr. Wright brought It on an even keel before reaching the third turn. After he had been In the air half an hour, making a complete round of the Held each time. Mr. Wright maneuvered the machine through several short circles, some not more than GOf foot In diameter. After circling the field fifty-four times the machine started cutting f* figure 8, much to the delight of the crowd. Tho aviator started to make a showing in regard to height. NEW HEIGHT ATTAINED. . .The aeroplane rose on each lap until it was betweeen 260 and 280 feet In the air. At this altitude the machine flew half a, dozen rounds and the gradually descended. On the last lap before Jnndlng Mr. Wright approached within twenty feet of the earth. He made a' successful and easy landing after completing eighty-three rounds of the field. Mr. Wright met every requirement set forth by tho government except that of carrying one passenger and making tho five-mile straightaway run. Both of theso requirements probably could have been mot, but It Is the brothers' intention to get. thoir machine In perfect condition before attempting the official flights. TRIALS BEFORE TEST. The Wrights declare that the machine Is working much better, but that they desire several more trials before the official test. Wilbur, replying to comment that tho flight today could have covered tho width nf the English Channel, which lloibort Lathim unsuccessfully attempted to ITOHS yesterday, said It would luivo boon possible for his brother to cross from Franco to England and return to Franco again without landing. Ho also remarked that it would have boon easy to continue today's flight an far as Baltimore. Everybody's favorite—Top Notch Dread. Warner, Whltsel & Co. NOTICE TO CREDITORS.

Though County's Assessed Valuation Gained Eleven Millions, Fewer Taxpayers Seek Reductions. Monday was the last, day for citizens or corporations believing their county assessments too high to file petitlonB for relief. One of the features of the hearings this year la the reduced number of applicants to have their assessments reduced. Neither of the big telephone companies made application for reconsideration, a« always before this, and the LOB Angeles and Los Angeles Pacific companies were hot. heard from. The taxes in 1898 for the county totaled $398,867,372, an Increase over 1897 of $22,909,789; while the total assessments for 1909 are $410,553,095, an Increase over 1908 of $11,245,723; or a total Increase in two years of valuations of $34,155,521. Assessor Hopkins called the attention of the board yesterday to the fact that this Increase took place during a period of more or less financial despondancy, and does not Include the steam railroads, which are assessed now by the state. It Is a sign of the progress of Los. Angeles in spite of general conditions. I II lowani' Summer Outing.

The Great Singer's Lively Debul In an English City. SHE DEFIED THE DIRECTORS. Considering That She Had B«sn Shabbily Treated, Malibran Sang •* Long •s She Wanted t« and Had a Most Satisfactory Revengo. Quarrels between opera singers and managers call to mind an Incident in the life of Malibran. it was In 1820, when Malibran returned to England from New York and made her debut at Birmingham ut the music festival as Malibran Garcia. Miss Paton had already become a favorite there and was allowed to choose her own songs and sing as many as she pleased, whereas AlaJIbruu was compelled to sing only what was assigned to her. Garcia bore the Indignity with such patience as she could command until one morning . she saw the announcement that Miss Paton would sing six eongHi that evening and that she would slug but two. Then it was that, realizing that much of her success for the season in England depended on her having a better place in the program, she stormed the directors. In rain the directors endeavored to avoid receiving her, but she made short work of ceremony, and while they were framing an excuse to pacify her slie broke in upon them in a magnificent rage. In a jiffy she asked the chairman: "Sir, bare you sanctioned this program?" And, receiving a nod in the affirmative, she sailed along further. "1 bad hoped," she said, "it bad been Issued without your sanction, for it nssigns me two songs, both of which are hackneyed, while it gives my rival, Miss Paton, six. She has an established reputation here. Mine is yet to make, at least with your English audiences, and therefore if any preference should be given to any one it should be to me. On my success here depends all chance of my success In Loudon. You forget this or do not care. You give me no chance of success, whereas all I want is justice. 1 want the same opportunity for displaying my ability us you allow Miss Paton. Here you advertise me for Romeo. But I performed that last night, and the public will say, 'Uomeo on Monday, Ilomeo on Tuesday, Ilo- rneo on Wednesday—Uomeo, Ilomeo, she can do nothing but IJomeo.' 1 want fair play—no more, no less!" Well, it was a great fuss. The directors endeavored to soothe her, for she had talked herself into a great passion, but they made their mistake in pointing to tho fact that the program was printed acd could not be changed: In vain Malibran argued that she should sing six or an equal number of songs with MiL'H Paton. and finally she went off in a great huff, declaring if they would not right her she would right herself. The evening- advertised came, and the theater was crowded with the rank, beauty i;nd fashion of Blrmlng- h;im. us every one familiar with English music festivals would expect. The performuitco roiiunoiK-ed. Some one sung, then Hrn.jiam followed, and dually ciime Miss Paton. As usual, she was heartily h'colved. Then Malibran came forward jiuitl many plaudits, undoubtedly agitated at the applause, ami stood for {» minute with her arms folded and hoi eyes 011 the ground. There was -i piano near the footlights, and tl.? music stool stood at the back of tl.«> stage. Malibran stood near I lie plai >i. but did not touch a key. while In t manner until then unknown in K jgluml she warbled the well known aria "L'ua voce poce t'a." IVal followed peal of applause, and when the conductor came to lead Mall- bran away the cries of encore were so loud as to make him retreat, and again Mallbrau was lii the hands of the audience. KOI some tlmo the upplnuse continued and finally died away. When all was silence Malibran started up suddenly, made a pretty obeisance, hastily ran to the back part of the stage and brought out a piano stool. Then, motioning; to the orchestra not to play, she played a proludlo and then an ac- companlmojit to the song she bad just given. But that was not all. When Bhe came within a note or two of the conclusion sho paused, cast a look at tho wings, where the mystified director stood, laughingly shook her head and to the delight of the audience ami the uiuuzerueiit of the directors commenced a new song. She had been tinging Italian; now she sang Spanish, 11 ml when this had been applauded sho started to reth'u. The audience, however, would not part with her, and when the conductor came to lead her off pit, gallery and boxes actually hissed the poor follow. There never was a mure ontliuslas- tK- ovation to a singer in Ulrminghaui. ami, thus encouraged, Malibran gracefully waved Ihe i-omluctor off and again sat down to play.
