March 3, 1863. a gun foundry
board was organized by the presi
dent fur the purpose of making the
mou vi JSMMM research in relation to the
project, to visit tbe principal countries of
th- world, make its investigations thor

government, and the details of all work
to he s iparriaod and directed by govern
ment officers. Tin. second question im
pose? tin limitation aud simply calls upon
the board for suggestions. The board
decided that there were three points in
view fmm which this subject should be
First , that the government should sup
plemet t the plant of some of the steel
workets of the country with such addi
tional ools and implements as would en
able it. em to turn out finished steel can

Indies ed, the hoard addressed circular
letter- to several of the steel manufactur
ers in the country and to the companies
employed in the fabrication of cannon,
and tl ese letters and replies are submitted
a- a put of the repirt, and in reference
to thee the board says. "It was evident
thit none of the desired information
could lie obtained from our manufactur
ers, t cause of their lack of experience
on thi i subject. It was known, too, that
evert 1 of the European governments had
had more or less experience of joint ac
tion with heavy artillery establishments,
and ll e board therefore saw the necessity
of seeing information abroad. Accord
ingly the commission visited England,
Franc;. Germany, Russia and made a
tour ( f the United States, which included
an inspection of Rock Island arsenal.
Tht board in its recommendations ac
cepted tbe system then pursued in France
as the proper standard of imitation, and
in reply to the propositions made at the
outse makes the following statements:
To tbe tirst. That the government
shoul 1 supplement the plants of some of
tbe steel works of the country with such
addit onal tools and implements as would
enable them to turn out hnistynt steel
To the aecond, That the government
shall (five contracts of sufficient magni
tude ;o enable the steel workers of tbe
coun ry to supply the finished guns with
out i s direct aid.
To the third. That the government
sbou d establish on its own territory a
plant for the fabrication of cannon, and
sbou d contract with private parties to
such amounts as would enable them to
supp y from private industries of tbe
country the forged and tempered ma
In conclusion tbe board submitted Its re
plies to tbe three interrogatories enn-
taintd in the act of congress, and aa to
hlcb of the navy yards or arsenals
awn il by the government had tbe best lo-
catir n and as best adapted for the estab-
lishtient of a eun factory, recommended
Walirvhet Arsenal, West Troy, N V , as
the tlte for tbe array and the Washing
ton lavy yard. District of Columbia, as
the i ite for tbe navy. In reply to the
secoad question aa to what other method
if at y, should be adopted for the manu-
fact ire of heavy ordnance apart from tbe
esta )lisbment of a government foundry
the oard recommended, that with gov-
ernnent gun factories established there

Such a factory would be able to turn out
per year fifty 6 inch, seventeen 12 inch
and twelve 16-inch guns or a proportion

a yearly expense of about 3 000.000.
Tbe board supplemented its report

under its recommendations that Col.

THAT ABSURD RUMOR
The Thouicht or Keiuovliitr. Itork Inl
and Arisrual Rldleuled In IVaHhluc
iod It is unnecessary to comment to any
very great extent on tbe rumors noted In
yesterday's Arous as coming from St.
Louis to the effect that there was a possi
bility of moving Rock Island arsenal to
Ft. Leavenworth. Kansas. Tbe report
it may not be amies to guess, bad its or
igin with the chief of ordnance, who, too,
roost likely first proposeti the idea of
locating a military prison on tbe island.
Anything to depeciate the importance
and magnitude of Rock Island arsenal is
the evident policy of the ojfaief of ord
nance. But tbe Chicago Tribune's
Washington correspondent disposes of the
The statement thitt the Rock Island
arsenal is to be transferred to Fort Leav
enworth when the headquarters of the
department of Missouri are moved to St.
Louis is regarded berc as absurd. In the
first place il is by no means certain that
the department of Missouri headquarters
are to be transferred to St. Louis. The
change has not yet been approved by the
authorities here, and as far hs can he as
(ertained there is no immediate intention
of doing so. In the next place there are
no facilities at Fort Leavenworth for an
ordnance arsenal, and none could he tur
nisbed without a liberal appropriation
With the expensive buildings and excel
lent equipments at Rock Island for its
preseut purposes, such a chnuge as Mated
is considered the height of folly by offi
An army official said tonight that
no decision has yet been reached
by tbe war department officials in re
gnrd to tbe reniovnl of tbe headquar
tera of tbe department of the Missouri
from Fort Leavenworth Ueo. Metrttt'l
request for a change of base will un
doubtedly he complied with, for it i-i
quite manifest to the department ortl?ials
that there is too much friction between
biru and Col. McCook for a proper -,n :
harmonious admlnis ration of army affairs
at Fort Leavenworth With St. Louis
and Kansas City both fighting to obtain
the headquarters the department has not
been able to decide which one shall have
it. A delegation from the former city
called at the war office today to present
their claims. As Oen. Merritt is inclined
to favor this station it is not unlikely
that their tfiorts will be succeeaful,

Mail Carrier Elliott, whom Boss Wells
had planned to remove by a rouud about
way a week ago, and whom be kept a
short time longer to spile the Ar

Carrier Burris is to be transferred from
tbe upper part of town to Elliott's route.
while Carrier Osterman is to be created
and given Burris' route.
Elliott is one of the most popular and
efficient carriers on the force, and every
body on his route regrets to learn of tbe
change, but that does not make any dif
ference as long as the boss has political
ttsb to fry. Carriers Eckerman and Doyle

be seen what excuses Wells will manu

There is probably uo
better light for a large
lroom than this No. '2 Globe
Incandescent Lamp. It
will brilliantly light ' a
room 35 feet square and
that means 320 candle
power. Any body can
manage it, and I have yet
to hear the tirst complaint
ofit. If you want a splen
did light for your store,
church or Sunday School
room, call and look at it.
My store is lighted by it.
