CORRESPONDENCE FROM WASHINGTON BY RATH
Jan. 22, 1912.
The United States army offi
cials have adopted a new style of
bullet which has aroused the in
terests of Billy Kent, congress
man from California, who has
been experimenting with the
bullet on his ovpi account. Kent
is a famous hunter. He does all
the fancy stunts known with a
rifle or revolver, from shooting
out the flame of'a distant, candle
to erasing the' mark from the ace
of spades. '
Kent says that the new bullet
will mean sure death a every man
hit At short range the bullet,
which is about the caliber of a
lead nencil. and is loner and steel
I tipped, will go right through,
leaving scarcely any impression
except a neat hole which closes
behind it. This wound would
hardly stop the victim. A dog
shot in this way will continue to
run for a long distance.
However, at a longer- range,
the bullet acquires a disposition
to trip, and when it strikes any
thing like a man's body, it ac
quires a tumbling motion which
tears a lare-e. iae-ed channel and
is frightfully destructive.- ' 'It isj
worse than the sofe-nosev -dumdum.
There is a. movement on in
Washington to" secure a 'public
utilities commission, and 'those
who have investigated have 'come
to the conclusion that the -torn-mission
which LaFollette gave to
Wisconsin is the best model" to
adopt for such a nev law.
Senator LaFollette is working
day and night in the preparation
of a trust bill. (When Senator La
Follette starts to write a bill it
means that all the sources of in
formation in the country are
drawn upon and all the men best
posted on the subject are brought
in as assistants. -

As sorry as can be,
