Paulhan in reaching Manchester from London by aéroplane, and thus gaining the Daily Mail prize of 10,000l., for which Mr. Grahame-White had made such a valiant struggle, is the second case in which an English aviator has been within measurable reach of a success which has actually been achieved by a Frenchman.
