'A GHAKCE FOE PITTSBURG PLUCK. - JA11 Big Cannon Made by Private Parties Will be Purchased PBOYJDIXG THEI STAND THE TESTS. His Beqainmtnt liecessaiy to rsss the Ordeal Successfully. The Secretary of "War has approved reju 'lations providing for the trial and accept ance of his guns manufactured by private parties. The idea is to encourage such manufacture to the greatest possible extent. The cannon accepted will be paid lor at a valuation fixed by an impartial board. "VVASHrxGiox, April 10. The Army .Fortification Board, -which has Nbeen hold ing session at the "War Department during the past winter, has drawn up a set of rules to govern the tests of experimental guns. The act creating the board provides that it shall prescribe the dimensions and method of testing guns of 10 or 12 inches caliber that may be submitted by private parties, and if any gun offered shall fulfill the re quirements as to accuracy, range, power, endurance and general efficiency, then the gnn and ammunition (which is to be fur nished with the gun) shall be paid for at a fair valuation, including cost of transporta tion. A contract is also to be made at reason able prices with the party presenting the best of such guns for a further supply. The board has accordingly formulated the fol lowing conditions, which have been approved by the Secretary of "War: The 10-inch gun shall be abont SO tons In weieht, the length 31 calibers, measured trom the fate of the obturator to the face of the muzzle. It is desirable that the trunnions be 12 inches In diameter, and the distance between rim bases 12 inches in order to avoid the ne cessity for a special carriage. THE ESERGT KEQUTKED. The power must be a muzzle energy of not less than 15,000 foot tons; the range shall be for 20 decrees elevation, be 13,650 yards, and corres ponding ranges shall be obtained with lower elevations. The requirements as to accuracy are that S3 per cent of the shots shall strike within a vertical rectangle. L4 feet by 1 foot at IAD yards range, and within a horizontal rec tangle lh.5 yards by 92 yards at 10,000 yards ranee. The endurance test shall not be less than 300 pounds with full charges. After 2a0 or more rounds have been fired the gun may be lined wholly or in part, when at least 5C rounds more will be fired to fully test the strength of the construction. After this the general soundness and efficiency of the gun suoula not be materially impaired, except so far as may have resulted from erosion. Should any material modification of the construction be maae during the trial, at least 50 rounds, with full charges, shall be fired thereafter. The weight of projectile to be used with the full charge shall be about 575 pounds. Three hundred ronnds of ammunition shall be "proper" amount to be supplied with the tun for test. As a proof of general efficiency the breech mechanism should work Jreclv and be convenient for operating, the opening and closing of the breech to be performed without great difficulty by one man. The projectile shall admit of being readily bandied, inserted and centered in the bore, and not be subject to injury or deformation either in handling or transportation. A rapidity of fire of 15 rounds per hour shall be attainable, using such appli ances for loading as are employed by the ord nance department of the united States Army. SECESSAET BEPAIBS. The repairs allowable during the entire trial of a gun, exclusive of the insertion of a lining tube, will be confined to repairing or renewing parts injured during the trial. No alterations that may affect the general construction of any part will be made without the sanction of the board. For the 12-inch pun the weight is to be about 52 tons, the bore 31 calibers, and it is desired that the trunnions be lUi inches in diameter, and 49.8 inches between rim bases. The power is to be not less than 23,000 foot tons, the range 11,700 yards at 20 degrees elevation; tbe accuracy the same as the 10-inch gun, endurance not less than 250 rounds (a lining mav be inserted after 200 rounds); the weight of projectile about 1,000 pounds, and the other conditions are to be the same as in the case of the 10-inch gun, except that a fire of 10 rounds per hour shall be attainable. Tbe experimental gun should be submitted for test as toon as practicable, and within three years from date. It is not considered practicable for the board to determine, at this time, what will be a "fair valuation" of an experimental gun which shall have fulfilled tbe requirements prescribed, nor what processshould be "reason able" for a further supply of similar guns. It is believed to be better on all accounts to leave these questions for determination after tbe actual cost and value of such guns can be known, it being understood as the duty of the Board to act in such matter with entire impar tiality as between the United States and any party who shall attempt to supply the desired runs. It is understood, however, that the Board is disposed to deal !n a liberal spirit with parties submitting tbe guns with a view to car- Slng out the evident purpose of the act of ongres, which was to encourage the develop ment in the United States of works capable of supplying the needs of the country in the way of seacoast and other kindred defenses. FARMER 31'CLAUGHREY FREE. He Walks Oat Into tbe Sunlight, and Don't Care Who Sees Hinu rCFECIAI. TELEGEjUI TO Till ZUEPXTCB.1 Chicago, April 10. Old Farmer Mo Claughrey, who was sentenced to the peni tentiary for two years for swindling Cook county while acting as a County Com missioner, was released to-day, having been pardoned by Governor Fifer one month be fore the expiration of his sentence. When all the boodlers were sentenced, old Mc Claughrey was the only one to take his gruel without appealing to the Supreme Court. He went to Joliet on the first train, and thus goes free almost a year before the expiration of the sentences of his col leagues. A convict asked the old man last night if he was going to -go home in the evening, as is the custom of prisoners when released. McClaughrey straightened himself up and replied in his homely way : "Not much, I . ain't. I kem here in the broad light ot day, and now that I can go, away I'm not goin' to - rsneak off in the dark like a criminal. I'm " going out in the morning in the bright sun light, and I don't care a copper whose around to see me go, either." ILLINOIS WILL STAY T7ET.

Pabkersburg, April 10. The people of Tyler county, especially along and near the railroad, are very much excited over the ap pearance of dozens of mad dogs. On last Fri day a large dog owned by Captain W. H. Hen derson, ot Long Beach, went mad and attacked and bit every animal and living thmgwithin its reach. The brute attempted to bite Mr. Hen derson, but fortunately only tore his clothing before the farmer succeeded in getting out of his reach. That night it attacked the animals on Colonel Dan Johnson's farm, and when the Colonel went out to defend his stock, tbe brute sprang at him and caught him by the sleeve of his coat. Colonel Johnson, who was armed with an iron poker, beat tbe dog off before it inflicted a flesh wound. The mad animal then started across the country along the railroad, attack ing and biting dogs, horses, cows and every thing within its reach. A number of men armed themselves and started after it on a hand car, but did not come up with it until after it had run eight or nine miles, when they shot and killed it. The country is now be lieved to be full of bitten animals. A general hunt is in progress and every animal suspected of having been bitten will be killed. There is great uneasiness among the people.

One of Ayer's Pills, taken after dinner, or a dose at night before retiring, never fails to give relief in the worst cases, and wonderfully assists the process of nutrition. As a family medicine, Ayer's Pills are nnequaled. James Quinn, 90 Middle st, Hartford, H uonn., testines: "i nave used Ayer's Pills for the past thirty years and con sider them an invaluable family medi cine. I know of no better remedy for liver troubles, and have always found them a prompt cure for dyspepsia."

Three boxes of Ayer's Pills cured him. Frederic C. Greener, of EastDedham, Mass., for several months troubled with Indigestion, was cured before he used half a box of these Pills.

Undoubtedly one of the most striking novelties of the season is the new line of FINE FRENCH PLAIDS Coveredivith black polka dots.

NEW ADVKRTIhEMkXTS BARNUM'S CIRCUS Could Not Have Drawn a Bigger Crowd of People Ntr Occasioned a More Complete Series of Surprise! Than Were Occasioned This Morning at Gusky's First great Monday's sale of Men'sand Boys' Suits held to-day. So great was the business. So phenomenal the rush that Gusky's have determined to continue this sale all this week. Now let us give you a word of warning! You know that to be forewarned is to be fore armed. A mad dog will bite anybody so will the clothing sharks, curbstone dealers, petty dives and brainless imitators. Give 'em a chance and they will bite your pocketbook clear through the mid dle; and worse yet, theywill lie to you invevery way they can to in duce you to buy their old shop-worn and shoddy goods. They will advertise "new goods" when they have not received a single- fresh article; they will claim that their "goods are the best" when in reality th8y are shop-worn, threadbare garments leftover from past seasons, ancl tbey won't hesitate to declare their prices "the lowest," when it is as true as truth itself that Gusky's always have and always will undersell them all. Keep your eye on these imitators; watch their advertisements, and you will see our predictions and assertions are well founded. But let them talk and blow as they please; Gusky's are far above and beyond all would-be competitors. From "Chronjcle Telegraph" of Monday, April 8, 1889. This Sale Continued This Week!
