THE , PITTSBURG DISPATCH,' "WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 1890.
AGAINSTCAST GUNS. An Unfavorable Report Upon the Thurlow Experiment at Last THE TIECE STOOD ALL TESTS, u- 'But the SaTal Officers Are Prejudiced in . the Matter. A JIIXTCEE OF TOETEI AND POLITICS rrltOM A STjLPF C0HEESP0XDKKT.3 AVashixgtoit, April 15. At last the authorities of the Navy Department seem about to arrive at some conclusion in regard to the open hearth steel cast gun made at the Thurlow works in Chester county. Pa., and whose test at Annapolis followed the disastrous trial of the Hainesworth (of Pitts burg) Bessemer steel cast gun. It will be remembered that the Thurlow gun stood the statutory test of 10 rounds without burst ing, but that it showed an expansion, a very small fraction greater than the expansion of a "built-up" gun after a similar test. THE POIXT AT ISSUE. The question then arose whether the gun was a serviceable one within the meaning ofthel&w, and thedecision ot this question bung fire during the latter part of the "Whitney administration ot naval affairs, and up to this time nnder theTracy administration. A day or two afro the officials at the Annapolis Proving Ground were instructed byteleerapu to trive the crnn a further test of ten rounds. This was done, and the cast gun again refused to burst, bnt it showed an expansion nearly doable tbe foimer expansion, and several new and serious Cans developed. The Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance there upon decided to report unfavorably to the acceptance of the gun, and this report was sent to the Secretary of the Navy to-day. If the Secretary approves the report it will then be urged by tbe Thurlow people that a decision must, nnder the law, have been made after the statutory test of ten rounds, and not after 20 rounds and that if the department could not truthfully say after the statutory test that tbe gun was not serviceable then tbe makers should have the 5,000 and upward provided by act of Congress. AN INTERESTING QUESTION. The interesting question to naval authorities is, bow much more will the gen standT And there is a general desire to have it proven to the point of bursting. The endurance of the casting has been a surprise in naval circles, and, though this gun failed, confidence in the possibility ot making a successful cast gun has been vastly strengthened. The Thurlow people themselves say that this gun was tempered too soft, and that they have no doubt that cast guns could be made a suc cess with a little experimenting, properly en couraged by Congress. They think, however, that they should have been paid for the gun under discussion, but there is little doubt now that Secretary T-acy will approve the report of the Chief of Ordnance. POETICAL DEMOCRATS Duo Rbjmcs as an Argument In Ibe Montana Senatorial Contest A Local Election Fnrnisbes nn Occasion for Piirilsnn Jollification. "Washington, April 15. When the Montana contest was called up in the Sen ate to-day Jlr. Morgan took the floor. He referred to the recent Democratic successes in Helena and Butte as a response to the fraud attempted iu seating Republican claimants as Senators and as a proof that the great heart of the people was true to honesty and manhood and fair dealing. If N those elections, he said, had gone the other way there would have been no trouble in refer ring tbe case back to tbe people. Now be sup posed that was impossible. Hetfeclared that an Impression from the action of tbe committee had already been produced in Montana, as was proved by a telegram received from that State at 2 o'clock this morning He proceeded to read, amid laughter on tbe Democratic side, as SoUovis: Hurrah Tor honest citizens, who vindicate the rleht: Hurrah lor law and liberty the people won the flftht. itepubtfean corruption lsls went weeping to their fate: For the voters placed the ban upon the men who stole the fctatc. The mourners 6peak In whispers; there's crape upon the door, Tbe G. O. F was killed by stealing nreclnct thirty-four. Mr. Hoar said that as he understood the facts the Democratic majority in Butte, which a year ago was SOU, bad been reduced to about 2o0, and that at precinct 34 there was not a sin gle voter left- All of those apparent voters bad gone like last year's snow bank. He left his friend from North Carolina to his comic almanac Mr. Vance The Senator from Massachusetts derives as much comfort ont of small material as any Senator on this floor. My information Is entirely different. The City of Butte gave a Republican majority last year, and there has Deen a great "turn-over in conseqnencs of subsequent proceedings." Mr. Hoar If the Senator had been in bed at 2 o'clock last night bis ideas would have been clearer this morning. Laughter. Without concluding hU speec , Mr. Daniel yielded for a motion to adjourn, after an agree ment that tbe vote would be taken at 5 o'clock to-morrow. NO DSE TO APPEAL. Congress Only Can feet Aside tbe Terdlct of a Court Martial. TEOM JL STAFF COnEESPOXDKXT.l Washington, April 15. A letter was pre sented to the Secretary of War to-day from the former Colonel of a regiment of Illinois volun teers, asking that the verdict of a court martial be set aside, which dismissed from the service one of his men In 1S64. The private asked to be detailed to do recruiting service at home and when the Colonel refused, used insulting language. For this he was tried by a court martial and dismissed. Tbe private died several j ears ago, and since then bis widow baa been maintained by Free Masons, of which order her husband was a member. These friends discovered only a short time ago that the husband had been dismissed by verdict ot a court martial. Deinng to get a pension for tbe widow they set about to get the verdict in the case f the husband set aside. The Division of War Records in tbe War Department is loaded down with similar requests, and even old and life-long officers in the regular service do not seem to know that the verdict of a court martial cannot be annulled except by act of Congress. It is only a short time since no less a military personage than General Schofleld requested the President to relieve someone of a disability due to the verdict ot a court martial, and was surprised to find the President utterly power less under tbe law. In the Illinois case referred to the colonel of the regiment writes urgently regretting the effect of the verdict, and excus ingthe man for hislangnage. The only avenue of relief for tbe widow is to secure the removal or the stigma by act of Congress, though she may apply for a pension In Congress regardless of the dismissal of her husband, and the Ques tion of his status may not be raised against her when the circumstances are known. THE SILVER PROBLEM. Republicans Think That They Are ITow Approaching Its Solution. Washington. April 15. The Senate and House Republican committees on the silver question were in joint session two hoars this morning. Very radical differences in the views of tbe Senators and Representatives were dis closed by tbe discussion, but an earnest pur pose was shown to harmonize tbe differences If possible. One of the chief points upon which the committees could not agree was the pro- Sosed increase of national bank circulation, ucb a proposition. It was said, could notsecure a majority vote In the House. It was finally decided to commit tbe subject to a sub-committee of five Senators and five Representa tives. The two enb-committees, consisting of Sena tors Aldricb, Allison, Jones, Sherman and Teller, and Representatives Bayne, Bartine, Conger. KcKinley and McKenna, were in sessioa three hours this afternoon and practi cally reached an agreement, though no formal action was taken. The measure which found acceptance deals with silver only. Tbe two principal provisions are, first, that the Secre tary of the Treasury shall be directed to pur chase monthly 4,500,000 onnces of silver; and, second, that the notes Issued in payment there fore shall be redeemable in lawf nl money. BATTLE SHIPS TO BE BUILT. The Action of tbe Committee of tbe Whole Chanced by the House. Washington, April 15. In the House to day, alter the reading of the journal, Mr. Bon. telle, of Maine, called np the naval appropria tion Dili the pending question being upon the amendment adopted in committee of the whole striking ont the clause providing for the construction of three coast linebattla ships. The action of tbe committee was rejected yeas, lM; nays. 132. The naM apnropriation bill was then passed. I THE FINAL SESSION W-DAY. Labors of the Fnn-Amerlcnn CongreM Drawing to nn End. Washington, April 13. The Pan-Ameri-cans to-day adopted the report of the Commit tee on Arbitration. Chill did not vote and Mexico voted in tbe affirmative, with a reserva tion as to certain articles of the proposed basis of tbe treaties. The objectionable articles were not specified. The report of the Commit tee on Extradition was also adopted. The con ference adjourned nntil to-morrow afternoon, when it is expected the final session will be held. MORE TIME GRANTED HIM. Humane Agent O'Brien Finds His Task Laborious and Tedious. Tbe meeting of the directors of the Humane Society yesterday afternoon was largely at tended. The main topic before tbe Board was the collecting of the names of principals and witnesses in cases of cruelty alleged against at tendants at Dixmont Hospital. Mr. James B. Scott, wlio was present, said that an investiga tion by the society's agent was, of course, out of the question, but it is always a good plan to keep a watchful eye upon public institutions, and'he thought that General Agent O'Brien should be commended for the spirit that had prompted him to offer to collect evidence. If it were possible to do so. Agent O'Brien said that tbe task of gathering names is a slow and laborious one, and asked that be be allowed further time belore presenting to the directors, his work. His request was granted by the board. c Mrs. Charles Meyranwas elected a meinoer of tbe society. The Committee ou Agents ap pointed George M. Permar to be agent at New Castle. M. Brown contributed 5. Mrs. Charles Meyran 1 and Mrs. Agusta Doerflingerll. AN EIE TO THE MAIN CHANCE. What a Doctor Thought Wns His First Duly to a Patient. The snlt of David Humphreys against the National Benefit Association of Indianapolis, to recover on an insurance policy tor the loss of an eye, is on trial before Judge White. When Humphreys was placed on the stand he was asked what he did when he got his eye hurt. He replied that be went to a doctor. "What did he say?" asked the attorney. "How much money have you?" replied Humphreys. "I mean what did he tell you about your eye?" continued the counsel. "He wouldn't tell me anything nntil he fonnd out how, ruuch money I had," said the witness. When the Court got over Its laugh the facts were finally gotten down to. Fashloiinble Clothes Should be as honest and sterling in fabric as they are stylish iu atipearance. Such are the characteristics of tbe boys and children's suits designed and made by Messrs.
