THE ARMY'S ORDNANCE TESTED BE
rhey Are Little Compare! With Nmal
Gmta Tlielr Accuracy of Fire and Da
tractive Effect riant For Using Tliem
In Tarto Itlco ami Against llnrnim.
When tho campaign against San
Inan, Porto Itico, opens and tho Amer
ican troops begin to hammer for en
trnnco into tho city of Havana, thcro
tvill be no tnoro important piece of ord
nanco used in tho operations tlinu tho
little rilled mortars that threw cxplo
lives, Bhells aud heavy steol projectiles
with destructive effect against the
Spanish iutrenchments and rillo pits be
tween the American Hues undSnutlago.
l'lio Held mortars pro bellovcd by tho
irmy men iu Washington to bavo played
in important part iit compelling tho
surrender of tho Spanish troops nnd to
bavo assisted in tho capture of strategic
points which otherwise might not have
been taken without iwvero loss to tho in
Tlicso little mortars hnvo not been
generally adopted iu armies, except in
tho United States, and never had au
actual trial against au enemy until tho
recent tight between Shatter's men and
those, of General Toral. They aro light,
can bo readily transported with au ad
vancing body of men, aro quick of lire
and are almost as accurate as tho rifled
(lcldpicro. Although tho shot fired from
0110 of them describes n trajectory that
takes it Roariug hundreds of feet up iu
the air, the accuracy of tiro is to great
that an exploding shell can bo dropped
two miles uwuy within a space no larger
than n good sized ballroom.
With tho modrrn mortar provided
with a rilled chamber aud brcechload
lug apparatus tho ordnance experts
cluim that they can plump a shot iuto
any ordinary sized rillo pit and knock
the top oil any house, at which it is
aimed within tho radius of its action.
Although the piojectilo goes high in
the air and then takes a plunging
course, tho range can bo accurately
reached by reducing or increasing the
powder chnrgo. Tho explosion of a 7
(licit shell iu a rillo pit should 1:111 nr
severely iujnro every man in it, and if
0110 fell behind au intrcnchuiuit where
men were assembled thickly It would
bavo tho power to wipo out practically
hall a company
Mortars, howitzers and field guns
were the heny ordnance utul by tho
army iu front of Santiago, but for shell
ing 11 city no piece was believed by tho
olllcers to be better adapted for effective
work than the mortar. Two kinds aro
used iu the army, tho heavier being tho
T Inch and tho other tho 3.0 inch. Tho
heavy mortar has a weight of 1,715
pounds and a total length of only 58
inches, tho length of the boro being
seven calibers. A projectile weighing
I'M pounds is used for the. important
work of clearing rillo pits nnd cau bo
sent accurately to a distance of consid
erably mote than three miles and drop
ped within u space 100 by 12 feet threo
times out of five. To send this shell
through tho air ouly o(5 pounds of
powder is required, which develops uu
Initial velocity for tho projectile of
about 060 feet a second. Tho pressure
exerted is 18,000 pounds to tho snuuro
inch, whicli fceems high for so small a
chargo, and the rangu of tho mortar is
placed at -t,!40 yaids, or nearly threo
milis. Tho lighting raugo which will
be generally employed, however, is not
CNpcctcd to exceed two miles. Insido
tho 7 inch mortar Eholl is 12 pounds
of-powder, whoso oxplosiou throws hun
dreds of small pieces of tho shell iu
every dlrcctiou. A fuso ignites tho pow
der ns tho bliell strikes tho ground and
if tho explosion is iustaut tho destruc
tion in its immediate vicluity should bo
terrific. Should tho shell, however, hit
soft earth and bury Itsolf before explod
ing Its effectiveness is practically lost
Tho experieuco iu firing mortars at San
tiago showed that this occurred infre
quently. Theso mortars aro adapted to firo tho
projectiles of tho 7 inch howitzer as
well as tho shells. Besides tho ordinary
shell tho mortar is intended to fire ns
well a steol shell of 150 pounds weight
and approximately of fivo caliber length,
charged with high oxploslvo for great
destructive effect. .Reduced charges of
powder can bo used to iiiako tho olfectivo
limit of lire cover ranges between 7C0
yards at 10 degreos olovatiou and 4,!i40
yards at 40 degrees clovutiou. This
picco supplies tho heaviest caliber that
tho army regards as necessary for field
purposes aud is intended for just sucli
purposes as those to which it was put at
The a.O iucli mortar is fired from a
solidly constructed platform wolghiug
800 pounds. Tho platform is held iu
position by stakes, tho recoil being taken
up aud kept within limits by ropes
mado fast to an anchor stake. Tho range
of this mortar varies from ti00 yards to
8,300, aud its flro is just as accurato as
that of tho larger pieco. Twelve ounces
of powder explodes thu shell, and tho
amount required to propel it varies
from flvo ounces for tho smallest dis
tance to 16 ouueos for the greatest ob
tainable raugo. Exporimeuts with this
piece show that almost every shot cau
bo lauded within tho spaco of uu ordi
So satisfactory have both these weap
ons provod iu the Santiago campaign
that thoy will bo still more widely used
in tho attacks on Sau Juan aud lator 011
Ilavnua. If it becomes necessary to bom
bard cither place by tho laud forces
these pieces will do a great part of tho
work. They aro to tho army iu creating
havoc to tho lutreuchmeuts what tho
big 12 aud Id inch coast defenbo mortars
