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

County Assessment.
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.
