AIRSHIP TRIAL.

THE INVENTORS HOPEFUL.

The inventors of the locally-built airship (Messrs. Barnard) informed a Herald representative on Saturday that the trials on Brown's Island had proved satisfactory considering the crude material with which they had had to work, and the unfavourable weather that prevailed. The aeroplane was taken up a hill on wheels, and in one instance, upon being sent off, accomplished a "glide' of 100 yds. The inventors hope to be able to exhibit the model at the Winter Exhibition, which opens to-day, and to complete their experiments within the next two or three weeks.
