A NEW RIFLE FOR THE BRITISH ARMY.
Tim results of the labors of the
comuriltco appointed to provide a
new and improved rille for the army,
which havo just been published,
show, bays the London Standard,
thai the fuluro weapon of the Brit
ish Aimy will, as regards most con
siderations, be far in advance of the
service arm of any other nation. In
the new weapon tho Martini breech
action has been retained, the altera
tion being in the barrel and the
wcighl of the projectile, the com
bination being called the Mnrtini
Knficld. Taking the Martini-Henry
us a standard of comparison, the
diameter of the bore has been re
duced from .-15 inch to .40, the
wcighl of the new bullcl being 38 1
grains, aB compared with the 180
grain bullet of the old rille. The
powder charge, however, of 8f
grains remains the same, with the
important result that the muzzle
velocity of the bullet is increased
from 1,315 feet per second to 1.570,
thus lowering the trajectory to such
an extent that whilst the Jlaitini
llcnry bullet in traveling 500 yards
rises moie than eight feet and a
half above the line of sight, the im
proved projectile would scarcely go
over the head of an infantry man if
fired from the ground level. This is
an important consideration, as it
minimizes any errors in elevations
which may arise cither from occitc
ment or miscalculation. The sys
tem of grooving adopted is the
ratchet, the number of grooves being
9, as against the 7 of the Martini
Henry, although the latter is the
largest number employed in any
military rille in the world, whilst the
twist of the bullet has been increased
from one turn in L'2 inches to one
turn in Jo, Hie latter being in excess
of anything which has yet been used
for service purposes. In addition
to the important reduction in the
height of the trajectory, the higher
velocity of the bullet and the im
proved" rilling have bhown remark
ably good target results, the mean
deviation of the new bullcl being
only 3 feet and .95 feet at 500 and
1,000 yards, respectively, as against
.55 feet and 1.85 feet for the Martini-Henry.
Another important feat
ure is that the recoil of the new
weapon is considerably less than
thai of the present service arm,
which has caused so much adverse
comment. Experiments are also be
ing made to provide the new weapon
with an attachable magazine, so that
the soldier will be able to deliver a
rapid fire of several shots without
reloading in cases of emergency.
A SHOCKING SCANDAL.
A despatch from Plymouth, Eng
land, Nov. (5th, is as follows: The
Kev. Stewart Ros, formerly rector
of Christ Church, Belfast, Ireland,
was addiessing the Plymouth Young
Men's Christian Association last
evening when Mr. Charles Joy, a
Canadian emigration commissioner,
burst into the room and shouted,
"You hypocrite, you eloped with my
wife." Mr. Boss turned pale and lied
from the room. His audience was
surprised and greatly excited. In a
moment many of them realized what
was the matter, they became a howl
in"1 mob and pursued the lecturer
for a mile, yelling all the time. At
this point Mr. Ross, who was breath
less and driven to bay, turned sud
denly and stabbed two of his most
active pursuers. Others coining up
at the moment seized and disarmed
the murderous rector. The police
then put in an appearance and ar
rested Boss. lie was taken before
the magistrate to-day, when the
charges were lodged against' him and
he was remanded for a week, with
out bail. II transpires that Boss
disappeared from Belfast two years
ago, leaving a wife and three
children. Mrs. loy, who was a
teacher in his Sunday school, also
disappeared at the same time, which
led to the report that the couple had
eloped. This rumor was confirmed
when Mr. .Toy received a letter from
Boss in which the latter said : "Your
wife has undergone malpractice and
you had better arrange for obtaining
a divorce from her." Mrs. Joy was
found in prisoner's lodging and when
informed of her paiamour's arrest
gloried in her connection with the
"Lord's anointed," as she called
her illicit lover. She attended court
to-day and sat in a brazen manner
throughout the whole proceedings.
A gentleman, quite unconnected
with any road or transportation line.
