ARMY CRACK SHOTS.
A Gala Day at the National Shooting
Chicago, Sept. 10. —This was a gala
day in the United States army national
shooting tournament —the first day of
competitive skirmish firing. The eight
marksmen who composed the first, skir
mish line, stepped up to the <>00-yard
limit and waited for the signal to start.
When it came they stirted off with a
swinging stride; then iv quick succes
sion came the signals: "double time,"
"halt," "fire." At the command to fire,
the men dropped on the giound full
length and the rifles began to
crack. Then for thirty seconds it
was a continuous roar, the bullets
whistling in the air and embedding
themselves iv the back stop, dust and
pebbles showering around the figures.
At the command, "Cease firing," the
men arose and the process was repeatetl
until ten halts were made. Some ex
ceptional good runs were made, three
of them breaking the previous skirmish
records on this range. Sergeant Pow
ell, D company, Fourteenth infantry,
whose score of 173 points was the best
tnade Wednesday at the target shooting,
piled up a grand total of 145 points
in his afternoon runs, but his
forenoon run was only 99, so for the day
he got but 184 points, which was
equalled by but three contestants, how
ever. Sergeant Mayer, Ci. company,
I7t.h infantry, made the second best run,
riddling the figures to the extent of 14S
points. His morning run was 118,
bringing his averttging for the day up to
131. Sergeant Rose, A. company, 18th
infantry, Bcored 115 in the morning, and
137 in the afternoon, average 120. His
previous score gave him a total of 401
points, which places him first among the
army team men. Powell is second and
Mayer third. The distinguished ritle
marksmen, to use a camp expression,
are "not in it," but three of them scor
ing 300. Corporal Sweinhart, whose
phenomenal score of 175 Tuesday,
placed him far in the lead, made but
96 points, yet so indifferently did the
distinguished men shoot, that he still
retains second place. Private Davis, B
company, Sixteenth infantry, who
scored an average of 110, is first, with a
total of 438.
