prevent this, the Commissioners believe
that the alleys should be closed."

Turrets Gain Committee' Pnior.
NEWPORT XEWS, Va., April 5. After
further successful tests of the powerful
superimposed turrets and a forty-eight-hour
trial of the maneuvrhig qualities
the United States battleship Kearsarge
returned to Hampton Roads and dropped
anchor off Old Point. The official trial
board left the ship and took the steamer
for Washington, where, on arriving, it
will make its report to Secretary Long.
Between now and April S the Department,
it is believed, will give out that the trial
was in every way satisfactory, coming up
to the specifications in every detail, and
will finally accept the ship, relieving the
shipyard here from further responsibility.
The trial board consisted of Rear Admiral
Rodgers, who was chairman; Capt. Robley
D. Evans, Commanders Hemphill and
Roelktr, .Lieutenant Commander Hender
son and N'aval Constructor Capps. All of
the board are understood to be favorably
inclined toward the superimposed turret
except Capt. Robley D. Evans, who ques
tions whether or not there is any mili
tary advantage in having "all of the eggs
in one basket," as he terms It. It is be
lieved, however, that Captain Evans went
back to Washington much more firmly con
vinced of the power of superimposed tur
rets. One thing is known the entire
board will return prepared to make a re
port highly complimentary to the skjjjl of
the Newport News Shipbuilding and" Dry
Dock Company. Rear Admiral Rodgers
stated that the superimposed turrets had
been successfully tested.
The Kearsarge left the Roads Tuesday
morning and got to sea about noon, going
far out, and heading up the coast. The
afternoon was taken up with the battery
tests. The superimposed turrets were first
fired separately, four guns being dis
charged simultaneously In each. Follow
ing this was the supreme test for ascer
taining the stability of the ship. Tho guns
of both turrets, four 13-inch and four 8
inch rifles, were fired simultaneously. The
force of iha discharge was terrific, but
the effect on the ship is described as be
ing no greater than that of the discharge
of only four guns from one turret. Those
who stood the shook of the explosion of
these powerful guns discharged at one

MULE DRIVERS ANGRY.
Tlicj A III Strike I iiicxs Snpenileil
.Men Vre Ilclnstateil.
FROSTBURG, Md.. April C The sus
pension of three drivers in Hoffman mine
of the Consolidated Coal Company on
Tuesday has brought about a suspension
of the mine. All the drivers of the mine
held a meeting and concluded to quit work
if the suspended drivers were not rein
stated. Miners who were asked to drive
the mules refused to do so. This affair has
added more force to the indignation arous
ed by the suspension of the men who were
not at work last Saturday.
"When asked what the company would do
about the closing of Hoffman mine Super
intendent B. S. Randolph replied that the
matter would be permitted to stand a
while until Organizer Warner and other
outsiders would spend their forces. Mr.
Randolph claims the real trouble Is wheth
er the company is to control the mines or
miners are to run them. He also says
that all the movements point to a strike,
and that it would be better to have it now
before intense bitterness develops.
President Allan Barber, of the United
Mine Workers, said that there was no in
tention of developing a strike. He said
that the interview ot President C. K. Lord
led them to believe that Mr. Loru is not in .
full possession of the condition of affairs
as to the miners' griveances on the sub-
ject of suspension. For this reason an ap
peal was made to Mr. Lord and they hope
to receive a favorable reply today as to ,
reinstating the suspended miners.
A meeting of the miners and laborers i
has been called for tnis evening iu
Opera House, Frostburg. At this meeting
the question of the suspended miners will
be discussed and it may lead to a call for
all of the. Consolidated Coal Company s
men to quit work. .,,.,.
The business men of Frostburg will hold
a meeting this evening for the purpose of
bringing about an amicable settlement of
the trouble between the companies and
the miners. It will be set forth at this
meeting that three elements are vitally
concerned, the miners, the companies, and
the community in general. Organizer
Warner said that all differences could be
peaceably settled if the companies would
meet the men in a friendly way.

THE ROCK CREEK DUMPS.
Property Holders Told That They
3Inst Conform With the Lair.
Prof. Charles W. Xedham, Secretary ot
Columbian University, with about twenty j
other property holders, has been informed t
by the District Commissioners that the i
law provides that no earth shall be dump-
ed on the east side of Rock Creek within
the city limits, unless there has first been t
constructed a wall sufficiently strong to
prevent such deposits from falling into
the water, the penalty for violation of this
law being $20. i
The Commissioners state that they have
been informed that earth is being dumped
on the banks of the creek north of N ,
Street, and that such dumping of mate-
rial threatens to obstruct the passage of .
the stream. '
Accordingly the property holders re- i
ferred to are requested to see that no
dumping is allowed upon the property ad- j
jacent to the creek without providing " )
the retention of the ueposueti material a
required by law.
