there should be local and diocesan

tluDlie Modern Vrfir,
According to news just received by
way of London, the Messrs. Colt, our
famous American gunmakers, have
bought the American rights to the
G lltard gun patents for 0O,O00. Ex
perts wno have seeu the gun In practice
aro enthusiastic In its praise. The
French Government Is said to be experi
menting on Its application to cannon of
the largest size.
What is the GIffard gun? A few
days ago It was exhibited at the bead
quarters of the Scottish Bide Volunteers
in London. M. GilTard himself was
present. To outward appearance it
was a simple thing enough, consisting
of a smah tube of toughen steel only
nine Inches in length, containing noth
ing that, when opened, the eve can see,
the ear hear, the nose smell or the
fingers touch. Yet, that small tube
may yet be destined to destroy empires.
WHAT TUK OUN IS LIKE.
The tough steel tube, nine iocUe
long, is charged with liquefied earbonie
acid gas, the same gas that we breathe
from our lungs after everv respiration,
but converted by llquefaetkm into one
of the most powerful propulsive known,
it is fixed to the banal of the ride in
iwh a way that when the trigger is
pulind a drop of the liquet!! gas is
foreed into the breech of the gun behind
the bullet, where, InstaataiMously re
suming a gaseous condition, it develops
a force equal to 300 pounds pressure on
the square Inch. The bullet la then ex
peUed at any degree of velocity dneired,
for the powder can he inerensad or di
wlnUhed by a simple turn of the screw
The pressure U equally distributed and
continuously Increased until the bullet
leaven the barrel. There is no sudden
explosion, such as that which consti
tute the constant puzzle o( the artillerist
to overcome. There is no saaoke, no
noise, no recoil, no smell, no heat.

taken among politicians in New York
yesterday In a story sen; from Wash

complained to the State Department
over what was spoken of as the Cointe
de Paris "oftklal reception" In the
lower bay. The French Minister's ob
jection to the Count's reception by the
Collector in the name of the Presl lent
was band on the Minister's argument
that the Comtels practically adlsturber
of the peace, and desires to bring about
the destruction of the French republic.
From all that could be learned yester
day, the French Legation has gone off
on a tangent, and bos taken offense at a
few baimlcsi civilities which were
extended to the Comte de Paris.
Collector Krhardt was not In town
ycsteiday. Friends of his who went
down the bey with him say that the
Collector's remarks amounted to noth
ing more than extending to the Count
the courtesies of the port. These con

the custom house and taking him oil

was further learned that the Frenoh
Legation had cabled borne the report
that Collector Krhardt had welcomed

that the subject had resulted in long

Secretary Tracy appears to lie In a
perpetual State of astonishment at the
vociferous enthusiasm with whleh the
Presidential party Is greeted nnd the
apparent popularity of the President.
He forgets that all Presidents are greeted
in that way, and tbat just as large
crowds would turn out to look at an

by the ftdlhful Jenkins was that of nn
