His Beqainmtnt liecessaiy to rsss the Ordeal
The Secretary of "War has approved reju
'lations providing for the trial and accept
ance of his guns manufactured by private
parties. The idea is to encourage such
manufacture to the greatest possible extent.
The cannon accepted will be paid lor at a
valuation fixed by an impartial board.
"VVASHrxGiox, April 10. The Army
.Fortification Board, -which has Nbeen hold
ing session at the "War Department during
the past winter, has drawn up a set of rules
to govern the tests of experimental guns.
The act creating the board provides that
it shall prescribe the dimensions and method
of testing guns of 10 or 12 inches caliber
that may be submitted by private parties,
and if any gun offered shall fulfill the re
quirements as to accuracy, range, power,
endurance and general efficiency, then the
gnn and ammunition (which is to be fur
nished with the gun) shall be paid for at a
fair valuation, including cost of transporta
tion. A contract is also to be made at reason
able prices with the party presenting the
best of such guns for a further supply. The
board has accordingly formulated the fol
lowing conditions, which have been approved
by the Secretary of "War:
The 10-inch gun shall be abont SO tons In
weieht, the length 31 calibers, measured trom
the fate of the obturator to the face of the
muzzle. It is desirable that the trunnions be
12 inches In diameter, and the distance between
rim bases 12 inches in order to avoid the ne
cessity for a special carriage.
THE ESERGT KEQUTKED.
The power must be a muzzle energy of not
less than 15,000 foot tons; the range shall be for
20 decrees elevation, be 13,650 yards, and corres
ponding ranges shall be obtained with lower
elevations. The requirements as to accuracy
are that S3 per cent of the shots shall strike
within a vertical rectangle. L4 feet by 1 foot at
IAD yards range, and within a horizontal rec
tangle lh.5 yards by 92 yards at 10,000 yards
ranee. The endurance test shall not be less
than 300 pounds with full charges.
After 2a0 or more rounds have been fired the
gun may be lined wholly or in part, when at
least 5C rounds more will be fired to fully test
the strength of the construction. After this
the general soundness and efficiency of the gun
suoula not be materially impaired, except so
far as may have resulted from erosion. Should
any material modification of the construction
be maae during the trial, at least 50 rounds, with
full charges, shall be fired thereafter. The
weight of projectile to be used with the full
charge shall be about 575 pounds.
Three hundred ronnds of ammunition shall
be "proper" amount to be supplied with the
tun for test. As a proof of general efficiency
the breech mechanism should work Jreclv and
be convenient for operating, the opening and
closing of the breech to be performed without
great difficulty by one man. The projectile
shall admit of being readily bandied, inserted
and centered in the bore, and not be subject to
injury or deformation either in handling or
transportation. A rapidity of fire of 15 rounds
per hour shall be attainable, using such appli
ances for loading as are employed by the ord
nance department of the united States Army.
The repairs allowable during the entire trial
of a gun, exclusive of the insertion of a lining
tube, will be confined to repairing or renewing
parts injured during the trial. No alterations
that may affect the general construction of
any part will be made without the sanction of
the board. For the 12-inch pun the weight is
to be about 52 tons, the bore 31 calibers, and it
is desired that the trunnions be lUi inches in
diameter, and 49.8 inches between rim bases.
The power is to be not less than 23,000
foot tons, the range 11,700 yards at 20 degrees
elevation; tbe accuracy the same as the 10-inch
gun, endurance not less than 250 rounds (a
lining mav be inserted after 200 rounds); the
weight of projectile about 1,000 pounds, and the
other conditions are to be the same as in the
case of the 10-inch gun, except that a fire of
10 rounds per hour shall be attainable. Tbe
experimental gun should be submitted for test
as toon as practicable, and within three years
from date. It is not considered practicable for
the board to determine, at this time, what will
be a "fair valuation" of an experimental gun
which shall have fulfilled tbe requirements
prescribed, nor what processshould be "reason
able" for a further supply of similar guns.
It is believed to be better on all accounts to
leave these questions for determination after
tbe actual cost and value of such guns can be
known, it being understood as the duty of the
Board to act in such matter with entire impar
tiality as between the United States and any
party who shall attempt to supply the desired
runs. It is understood, however, that the
Board is disposed to deal !n a liberal spirit with
parties submitting tbe guns with a view to car-
Slng out the evident purpose of the act of
ongres, which was to encourage the develop
ment in the United States of works capable of
supplying the needs of the country in the way
of seacoast and other kindred defenses.
FARMER 31'CLAUGHREY FREE.

rCFECIAI. TELEGEjUI TO Till ZUEPXTCB.1
Chicago, April 10. Old Farmer Mo
Claughrey, who was sentenced to the peni
tentiary for two years for swindling Cook
county while acting as a County Com
missioner, was released to-day, having been
pardoned by Governor Fifer one month be
fore the expiration of his sentence. When
all the boodlers were sentenced, old Mc
Claughrey was the only one to take his
gruel without appealing to the Supreme
Court. He went to Joliet on the first train,
and thus goes free almost a year before the
expiration of the sentences of his col
leagues. A convict asked the old man last night if
he was going to -go home in the evening, as
is the custom of prisoners when released.
McClaughrey straightened himself up and
replied in his homely way : "Not much, I
. ain't. I kem here in the broad light ot day,
and now that I can go, away I'm not goin' to
- rsneak off in the dark like a criminal. I'm
" going out in the morning in the bright sun
light, and I don't care a copper whose
around to see me go, either."

vailed and no one was given an opportunity

49 negative votes. Twenty-four members

tion not having an affirmative vote of two
' thirds of the members was defeated.

A 1UAD DOG EPIDEMIC
One West Virginia Community In a State of
Pabkersburg, April 10. The people of
Tyler county, especially along and near the
railroad, are very much excited over the ap
pearance of dozens of mad dogs. On last Fri
day a large dog owned by Captain W. H. Hen
derson, ot Long Beach, went mad and attacked
and bit every animal and living thmgwithin its
reach. The brute attempted to bite Mr. Hen
derson, but fortunately only tore his clothing
before the farmer succeeded in getting out of
his reach. That night it attacked the animals
on Colonel Dan Johnson's farm, and when the
Colonel went out to defend his stock, tbe brute
sprang at him and caught him by the sleeve of
Colonel Johnson, who was armed with an iron
poker, beat tbe dog off before it inflicted a
flesh wound. The mad animal then started
across the country along the railroad, attack
ing and biting dogs, horses, cows and every
thing within its reach. A number of men
armed themselves and started after it on a
hand car, but did not come up with it until
after it had run eight or nine miles, when they
shot and killed it. The country is now be
lieved to be full of bitten animals. A general
hunt is in progress and every animal suspected
of having been bitten will be killed. There is
great uneasiness among the people.

Could Not Have Drawn a Bigger Crowd of People Ntr
Occasioned a More Complete Series of Surprise!
Than Were Occasioned This Morning at Gusky's
First great Monday's sale of Men'sand Boys' Suits held to-day. So
great was the business. So phenomenal the rush that Gusky's have
determined to continue this sale all this week. Now let us give you
a word of warning! You know that to be forewarned is to be fore
armed. A mad dog will bite anybody so will the clothing sharks,
curbstone dealers, petty dives and brainless imitators. Give 'em a
chance and they will bite your pocketbook clear through the mid
dle; and worse yet, theywill lie to you invevery way they can to in
duce you to buy their old shop-worn and shoddy goods. They will
advertise "new goods" when they have not received a single- fresh
article; they will claim that their "goods are the best" when in
reality th8y are shop-worn, threadbare garments leftover from past
seasons, ancl tbey won't hesitate to declare their prices "the lowest,"
when it is as true as truth itself that Gusky's always have and always
will undersell them all. Keep your eye on these imitators; watch
their advertisements, and you will see our predictions and assertions
are well founded. But let them talk and blow as they please;
Gusky's are far above and beyond all would-be competitors. From
"Chronjcle Telegraph" of Monday, April 8, 1889.
