The Boston Journal has the following
relative to a new American gun in the
triumph of which. Col. Whittemore. the
new commandant at Rock Island arsenal,
played a very important part:
It is well known that the manufacture
of heavy modern ordnance was a lost art
iu this country for a creat many years,
and that this great industry, in which
previous to the rebellion we used to ex
cel, has breu revived in a small way
only recently. We have a few steel
tireech-loading naval rifle guns of good
size afloat and many more in process of
construction. All that have been com
pleted have been pronounced remarkably
successful, and now the same report is
made of the first heavy breech-loading
rifle of exclusively American material
ever Duilt in this country for the army.
cun, wnicn was tested at Sandy
Hook the other day. cave results in all
points equal and in some superior to the
best guns of foreign manufacture. It
excelled in some respects the famous
Kiuppgun of SJ-mch caliber, supposed
to lie the best piece of artillery in exis
tence. A range of nine miles was at
tained with a shell of 300 pounds weight
and a charge of 188 pounds of powder.
The highest initial velocity was 1,957
feet ycr second, or 100 feet more than the
best record of the Krupp projectiles. Il
is a remarkable and gratifying circum
stance that the first gun of this modern
and powerful type ever constructed of
American materuU ia 4hixtmntry should
prove supepwf to the best rJroducfWtTmJn,

A special from Des Moines states that
a meeting of the leading members in Cen
tral Iowa of the society of Modern Wood
men was held in that city to protest
against the conduct of Head Consul
Root and Head Physician McKinnie.
The difficulty grows out of the heretofore
mentioned alleged fraud by which $ 3,000
were taken from the treasury to pay for
a bogus death in Kansas. The meeting
adopted resolutions demanding the resig
nation of these officers before the 2d of
January, and if they failed to do so de
manding that a meeting of the bpad camp
of the United States be held to expel
them. Woodmen generally are begin
ning to join in this idea that the only
salvation of the order lies in the immed

mitted or not.

plunging a knife into the lung of Wm.
Chatterton, leading man of the Hamlin
Comedy company, who was in the act of
defending his manager, Paul G. Hamlin
Chatterton was carried into the hotel,
blood pourins from his wound, while
Mart rushed down West Seventeenth
street to First avenue, and took the
railroad track for borne. He was
arrested in Moline hatless an hour later
and returned to this citv. He is now in
the county jail awaiting developments in
his victim's condition. Mr. Chatterton
was attended by Drs. Carter and Cawden,
who at first thought the wound extremely
serious. The blade entered a little
above the left breast and penetrated the
lung. The patient stood the shock ad
mirably, however, and this morning was
much better, bis physicians announcing
that there was every prospect for bis en
tire recovery, though he will be disabled
for two weeks at lpast, and a relapse is
still not entirely without the range of possibility.
The trouble bad iu origin in a game of
dice in the Reck Island bouse saloon
shortly before midnight, when Chas.
Shibley, one of the hotel 'bus drivers.
was talking to Frank Bowman, bead bar
tender, and Mart, accompanied by Jerry
oodin, of Moline, and John Wood-
berry, of this city, entered. Shibley and
Mart after exchanging a few words en
gaged in a game of dice. Shibley won
5 cents which the latter refused to pay,
and angry words ensuing, Mr. Bowman
ordered all out of the room stating that
no quarreling would be allowed in the
house and that it was nearly midnight
and shutting ip time anyway. The men
went out on the wlk and continued their
anery dissertation. Shibley demanding

and his companions refusing to accede.

standing near by talking to Msj. Beards-

bloody murder , of Jsmes Jackson on
Market square by Geo. Erbst three years
ago last night. He was attracted by the
threatening talk of Mart and his com
panions toward Shibley and stepping un
interposed as peace maker saying, "Give
a man a chance, three on one is not fair."
One of Mart's companions which one is
not known resentel this friendly ad
vice on Mr. Himlin's part, and stepping
up to him said in a threatening way:
What do you want"
I want nothing but fir play: three
men on one is too many," was Mr. Ham
Weil, we'll give jou all jou want
too, ' came the response of the one who
had first approached Hamlin, and as he
made this last remark he came towards

By this time Cuatterton, w ho was re

his manager in trouble ru-died down stairs
and out into the street without coa. or
vest on and as he came out of the door
Mart was getting around back of Hamlin
with knife in hand . Chatterton struck
Mart a heavy blow which felled him. As
he arose he bit him aijain, and acain. and
then one of Mart's companions seized
Chatterton 'a arms, and Mart rushing at
him pluneed the knife into him Chat
Look out. P. G.,' they've got a
knife; I am cut, and cut bad."
Mr. nmln then assisted Chatterton
into the hotel and Marl, without stop
ping to get his hat, fled.
This is Hamiin'i story of the affa'r, and
he also says that just as Mart stabbed
Chatterton. a citizen near by drew a re
volver and kept him back, and that as he
entered the hotel with Chatterton, Mart
struck him in the back of the head.
Mart, while acknowledging the fact
that Shibley had won a quarter from him
and that he refused to pay it. says that
when Hamlin approached he (.Hamlin)
told Shible? to make the pay
it, and that then Shibley struck him
Mr. Hamlin confesses that he was to
blame for meddling with the quarrel, but
he insists that he only did so aa a peace
maker, and that aa he expostulated, said:
"Let this drop before there is another eu:h
a tragedy as there was over there on the
square three years ago tomorrow nigbt."
but that Mart and his companions scorned
bis entreaties for peace.
Yesterday morning the knife with
which Mart did the stabbing was found
on the street near the scene of the trou
ble, and turned over to the police. Mart
denies being the possessor of it, but the
police say they have found it on Mart's
person on numerous occasions when they
have had him in the station. Mart
has been locked up several times within
the past few years, net only for assault
and battery, but for assault with a deads
eaDon. and it is about time that be
was tfrigbt by the law that such tactics
must be discarded. No matter what
