Pirrsnuno, Dec. ".The Pittsburg
Steel-Casting Company was greatly dis
appointed over the bursting of tlio
Hnincsworth cast-steel gunnt tho Annap
olis, Md., test on 'Wednesday. It seems
to settle permanently the relativo merits
of casl-stcel and built up guns, it is
stated that oven had tho test resulted
satisfactorily tho Pittsburg company
would havo made no moro guns for
tho Government. A member of the llrin
said that ono was quito sulllcicnt.
Mr. Joliu Irwin, ir.. of tbo Pittsburc
Steel-Casting Company, who witnessed
tlio test, saidt
"So far as wo wero able to discover by
a superficial examination tho metal con
tained no flaw, nud wo really do not
know in what tho actual causo of tho
failure lies. It may havo resulted from
the rigidity of the fcteel ond It may not.
Tlio test was n sovcto one, but, of course,
not moro so than fdr any other gun. Tito
cxplosivo force employed was enormous.
Only one who has been on tho ground can
havo any idea of its force. Thu Govern
ment, however, treated us in tlio fairest
manner possibloj in fact, acted as if tho
gun wns their especial pet. Wo propose
now to mako u most thorough examina

Tho President-elect was ready to rest. For
an hour ho sat at Hates' wcll-ladcu table, uud
then smoked and told stories.
"How did this town of Dana gels ItsnamcV"
ho iiMied, as ho s.it before tho Hie.
"Why,'1 icspoudeil Attorney Pierce, "It was
named by Colonel Moore, who used to bo a
superintendent of tho I. D, & W uftcr Charles
A. Dana of tho New iork Hun. I guess If ho
could take It back uow uud nauio it over again
he'il name It somctliinc else."
"Why ao ?" Ueuera! Harrlsou asked.
"Ilccauso Moore Is a red-hot lienubllcan."
"Oh," was tho (Jeneral's laughing remark,
"hu needn't let that worry him. Dana did us
as much irood as any of them. It was amusing
to read tho Sun during tho campaign. You
could jsco In every Issuo of It that it was Uniting

Will find here a great
er variety of gar
ments that are as rich
as those shown any
where else. We keep
the best of everything
worn by boys, and yet
are not a high-priced
house. On the con
trary, we sell as low
grades of goods as
ought to be made into
clothing, and we name
prices as low as most
dealers ask for inferior
