SHELLING WITH DYNAMITE.
Farther Socresvfal Tent* of the /ultnftkl Fneumutic (inn—Naval Expert# De lighted With the Experlinent.«, The official trial of the dynamite gun, reported below, marks a new develop ment of the contest that has been going on between gnns and armor since the latter was applied to war ships. It is likely to be quite as important a step as wasihe creation of the American monitor. The gnn planted six shots out of eight inside of a rectangle 30 feet wide bv 150 feet long, at a distance of one mile. The accuracy thus shown would secure effect tive action for seventy-five per cent, of the projectiles fired, bursting them either at a plunging angle on the deck of an enemy or under her bottom. To take in the practical effect of such firing, let us assume that the Vesuvius carrying three of these guns goes into action with a representative modem armored ship, such as the Benbow, of 10.000 tons, carrying two 110 ton and ten ail inch breech loading rifies, protected by a steel faced compound armor four teen inches thick. The Benbow has a «peed of sixteen knots und the Vesuvius a speed of twenty-one knots. The Ben bow could bring only three guns to hear as they approached, bows on—one 110 (or sixteen inch) gun and two six-inch guns. Accuracy of fire by none of those guns can be expected outside of a four mile range, while the Vesuvius's throe guns would not be available beyond two miles. " Hence for the time necessary to cover two miles the Vesuvius would be unable to - reply to the Beubow's fire. The joint epeed of the two ships would make them cover this distance in less than tliree minutes. Only five shots in all from the three guns of the Benbow could possibly he fired in that time, and probably unt more than three. The chance of one of these shots striking would be very small, es pecially when the rapidly varying dis tance and the ships motion are con aidered. It is reasonable to expect, therefore, .that the Vesuvius would arrive at a point where she could throw her 250 pound projectile with almost mathemati cal accuracy. By means of Lieutenant Eiske's rangefinder, coupled with his automatic electric device for dis charging the pneumatic guns at the precise angle and with the exact air pressure necessary to secure the desired range, two of her t hree guns could launch their bolts at the Benbow at two miles, and the third, a minute and a half later, with 600 pounds of dynamite at one mile distance. The Benbow's deck armor is of steel only three Inches thick. The ship has a width of 68 feet and a length of 880 feet and her main battery is ten feet above the water. Thus she presents a lofty mark, with little protect ion from a plung ing fire on her deck. The Vesuvius' pro iectlles would descend with a pitch of from 18 to 30 degrees. Yesterday's experiments in the lower bay in the earliest life of the gnn, with little practice in aiming, show seventy five per cent of hits on a smaller target than the Benbow. It would st*««m con elusive that at least two of the Vesuvius' bolts would plunge upon the Benbow's deck or explode beneath her hull. In either case it Is almost certain that the Benbow would either be in a sinking con dition or that her interior would be so wrecked as to pul her guns out of action. The pneumatic guns are to be fired once in every two minutes, and another dis charge of the three in the Vesuvius would most likely wholly destroy her an tagonist. V/ COTree. one hit by a shell from the Benbow might explode the nilro-gelatine on board the Vesuvius and t hus end the combat the other way; but the probabili ties of such a hit are not one in twenty five. The two great features of the pneu matic gun are the accuracy of Its shots and the terrible effect of the of explosive thrown by it Herald. ie great mass .-—New York FUNERAL OF SAMUEL M.

Mr. McCorkle explained that in 1888 an agreement was made between the Ixfcrd and himself, in which the proper compensation was re ferred to the committee of the school for settlement. After a long discussion the report of the committee was adopted, and a motion allowing Mr. Melvin to pre ceed to enter t lie drain was passed. On motion of Mr. Bailey the secretary was directed to notify Mr, McCorkle that nothing but the cellars of the proposed houses should be drained in the sewer. The committee on a janitor for No, 10 stated that the applicant, Mr, Kirby, had the necessar motion employing Mr. Fonlk's resolution to close No. 11 when No. 18 was opened, consideration of which was postponed at the last meeting, was taken up.

County Assessors Higgins, McCloskey and Dewees will begin their five days' session for the revision of the assessment lists at the court house to-day. They will occupy the Levy Court room in the southwestern part of the building, first floor. The session began aliout 10 o'clock tills morning nnd will end at 5 p. nt. They will sit every day this week. This Is the general assessment, and every voter's name should be on the lists. The assessment for 1889 is the heaviest ever made, fully 17,000 names having been enrolled. The process of getting assessed at the court house, or of getting one's name corrected, if it has been misspelled, is simple.bat it requires the presence of the man whose name has been overlooked or misspelled and witli him must appear some freeholder who knows him nnd can vouch as to his identity. The applicant goes to the assessor of his district and finds out whether he is assessed or not. If lie is not ho gets his freeholding friend to make affidavit right there before the assessor who has blank forms for the purpose, that he, the applicant, is the man that he claims to be. The latter is then assessed, and his status is precisely that of the man who was assessed last month at his own house. The assessors can assess a man from any part, ward or district of the city.
