WILL MEET AT LEAVENWORTH
Pending Report Manufactures
Suspended at Reck Island
Col. S. E. Blunt, commandant af
Rock Island arsenal, is made chairman
of a board that has been designated
by the war department to test designs
of sights for the United States maga
zine rifle, model of 1903. This board
is convened in consequence of repre
sentations made to the chief of ord
nance that the form of sight which had
been adopted for the new magazint
rifle now under manufacture at Rock
Island arsenal and Springfield armory
was. In the opinion of some marksmen,
susceptible of improvement. It was
therefore thought best before continu
ing manufactures to any great extent
that the entire subject be carefully
considered. Ptnding conclusion and
permanent adoption of sight, manufac
ture of sights has been suspended at
Rock lfeland arsenal, which lias com
polled tonic slight reduction of the
force in the armory shops. The board
is to meet at Fort Leavenworth, Kans.
May 2. Associated with Col. Blunt on
the board are Capt. John T. Thompson
ordnance department; Capt. Walter II.
Gordon, ISth infantry; Capt. George
W. R'Md. 9th cavalry; Capt. Petel
Murray, ISth infantry and Capt. Her
bery Iieakyne, corps , of engineers.
Capt. Letcher Hardeman, 11th cav
alry. Capt. Thompson will act as re
corder of the board.
The war department order, which is
signed by Adna R. Chaffee, lieutenant
general, chief of staff, says:
"Tht? commanding officer of For
Leavenworth will afford all assistance
and facilities required in the ctmduc;
of the ttsts, including the services of
such enlisted men as may be requested
by the president of the board
Mont Ilenutiful Sight.
"The program of the tests will be
drawn up and the trial conducted and
expedited in tho most practicable man
ner for the purpose of ascertaining
which form of sight is most suitable
for use in actual service, the relative
xcelknce for target range work being
considered with reference to the train
of the Lol litr to s'looiing under battle
"The different forms of front-sight
protectors will bo tested for the pur
pose of ascertaining which is most
suitable for use, particularly by mount
ed troops. -r
"Upon the completion of the pro
gram the board will submit a report of
the tests with recommendations to the
chief of ordnance. Upon the adjourn
ment of the board the members not
stationed at Pott Leavenworth will re
turn to their proper stations. The
travel enjoined is necessary for the
over to Manager Nicol by Decatur,
and whom the latter believes needs a
little more experience to meet the re
quirements of a Three-Eye league
twirler, and second Baseman Burdette.
Burdette asked for his release after
one day's trial, feeling that the pace
was too fast for him. Pitcher Earl
Graham is the new arrival. He is the
old Rockford standby.
Cincinnati. O., April 2G. Because of
his objection to playing under George
Tebeau, of Louisville. Harry Arndt
the Cincinnati recruit, jumped the na
tional agreement and left on an after
noon irain for Coatesville, Pa., to take
the position of manager and third
baseman of the independent team of
that town. Arndt accepted $100 ad
vance money and would not wait for
an offer from St. IxjuIs, although re
quested to do so.

May 1 "The Mummy and the Hum
In "The Mummy and the Humming
Bird," which wi;i be presented at the
Illinois on Monday next Paul Gilmore,
the star of th.j company, preaches a
sermon to husbands and wives and to
those who expect to become husbands
and wives. The sermon Is sugar coat
ed, bright with epigrammatic dialogue
strong in original conception and clev
er of interpretation. Handsome and
polished Paul Gilmore, one of the big
gest local favorites, essays the title
role of the "Mummy." the lovable Lord
Lumley. who loves his wife better
than most men love their wives, but
who forgets that the very life of a
woman's love is demonstration. Gil
more is Ideal in his easiness and nat
uralness. The part rests as gracefully
upon his manly shoulders as the old
worn jacket which he wears In his
laboratory whil nernsine with unre
mitting zeal the study of mysterious
chemical compounds to the exclusion
and expense of domestic duty and hap
piness. Seldom is there a more beau
tiful piece of character work present
ed thai that with which Paul Gilmore
will entertain us. As the scientific

lifts up. and even out of his neglect
Indianapolis. Ind., April 26. Hugo
Kelly of Chicago was awarded the de
cision over "Philadelphia Jack"
O'Brien at the end of ten rounds at
the Auditorium last night. The fight
was fast and furious from the start.
The decision was popular, notwith
standing that O'Brien had admirers
who insisted that Referee Ryan
should have called it a draw. O'Brien
was cautioned several times by the
referee for rough tactics and was ac
cused of not putting his best efforts
during the first three rounds. O'Brien
claimed that he was sick. Kelly had
all the best of the argument in the
fourth, fifth and tenth rounds. He led
for the body continually, which show
ed its effect on his adversary in the
last round, when O'Brien was fighting
wild. In the seml-windup. billed for
six rounds. George Koerder of Indian
anolis. knocked out Danny Donovan of
Boston in the second round. There
were two fast preliminary four round
bouts by local talent.
