The first test was the firing at 250
yards from a 10-lnch gun of a BOO pound
Carpenter projectile, which struck the
plate with anenergy of 741,000footpouods
and penetrated to the depth of six Inches.
A careful examination uiscioseu no in

given an energy of 0J1.000 foot pounds,
but produced no Injury.
A 'ttheeler-Sllrling shell was then pro
jected from a 12-incn gun, and struck the
plate with an energy of 1,530,000 foot
pounds. The plate, weakened by tie pre
ceding shots, was cracked, but the shell
did not pass through the wood backing.

"A special effort is being made to In
crease this fund this year, a committee
of ladles being appointed to fulicit con
tributions for a new front to our home, as
originally contemplated. We would ask
the Honorable Commissioners to aid us
by appealing to Congress to make an ap
propriation for the same.
"The amount desired for the conduct
and support of the Woman's Christian
Association for the fiscal year ending
Juno 30, 1897, is $4,000."
JANITOR CULLEY'S CASE.

at the high school and the other for
services as engineer at the Ecklngton an
Soldiers' Home power-house. The posi

SCHOOL LIMIT APPLIES
Anti-Saloon League Opposes a Li
cense For the Portner Flats.
Counsel for Ilotli Sides I'rescnt tue
Mutter to tlio Excise Hoard No
Decision fTtis Itcnotied.
Tbe excise lioard heard arguments to
day for and. against -the application of
William T. Whelau, for license In retail
liquor at the Portner Flats, known alo
as the Virginia Fiats, at No. 310 Seventh
The rmllding In which Mr. Whelan desires
to establish his business, is classed as a
hotel, but Is located within 400 feet of a
prirato school, a Catholic Institution known
as Sacred Heart Academy.-
The fact that hotel bars have been given
by law some privileges that the ordinary
saloon does not possess, has induced Mr.
Whelan to press his application at this
juncture, and bis contention Is that the
400 feet limit ought not to serve as a
barrier to tbe granting of his license.
The Anti Saloon League -was represented
at the bearing by Attorney Shoemaker,
whose argument is that there is no chance
for doubt In the case. The law as origi
nally enforced might haveglven Mr. Whelan
a right to establish a hotel bar, but It
was to meet just such a case, be said,
that tbe act was amended last year.
Section 16, as thus amended, provides,
among other things, that "license for any
of tbe purposes specified In any section of
said act shall not be granted to any person
to conduct such business within 400
feet of a public school, private school
or bouse of worship."
This provision, Mr. Shoemaker says, la
broad enough and clear enough to admit of
but one solution, and that is tbe rejection
of tbe application. The opinion of Attor
ney Thomas, District counsellor, rendered
In December, 1893, which Mr. Whslan-now
quotes In support of his plea, Is not now
applicable, Mr. Shoemaker arjrues, the
amendment to tbe law having been since
enacted to Include tbe class of applicants
upon which Mr. Thomas was expressing nls
Attorney Donaldson was before the board
as counsel far several occupants of tha
Portner, who desired to be beard
In protest against tbe lssaanoe of tbe license.
Ths lntsrssts ot Mr. Whslan were repre
sented by Mr. Frank Madlgan.
r The board decided to re far tbt case to At
torney Thomas for nls consttaotioa of tbe
law. and it wilt probably be a week or more
. before 11 is finally decided. . ,
