Shed With Compartment for Each Com panyBulkheads Conveniently Arranged. The Wind Will Not Bother Anyone. Just a little over a week more now and the military shootins: ranee, to be the finest of any on the islands, 5 ? 3. 1 "Z Bulkhead- C i X j POSITION OF NEW MILITARY RIFLE RANGE AT KAKAAKO TO BE COMPLETED IN A LITTLE OVER A WEEK. will be completed and the eight com panies constituting the First Regi ment, N. G. H., will be confined to one place like a big happy family instead of being separated with one company here and another there. It will be more like complete organization and Colonel McLean has the credit of start ing the ball rolling as well as keeping it moving up to a fine finish. Reference to the accompanying cut will at once define the exact position of the butts with surrounding land and "water' marks and will at once show that the position with regard to light, wind and other disturbing causes, is the very best that could have been chosen. As soon as the scheme of having the new range was put into shape the site of the old battery was chosen and the work of filling in a portion or the place began, this giving the shooting shed and bulkheads the position consider ed best. About this filling was placed a coral wall and alter tne wnole was properly levelled off and the founda tion for the bulkheads 200 yards out to sea was completed, the construc tion of the shed and bulkheads began simultaneously. The shooting shed is the one that was at the old association range as has already been stated in this paper; but in putting it up in the new posi tion, some alterations deemed to be of the greatest advantage to men us ing the butts, have been made. In the first place the shed is 144 feet long and contains eight doors entering eight separate places, one for each company from A to H. The roof is very high and conse quently there is a freer play of air. This will render obvious to any one who has had any experience with shooting sheds that there will be a perceptibly decreased amount of con lect such as it does in most of the other sheds on this island. On the front part of the roof there is an eight-foot extension which will prove perfect balm to the eyes of any who may use the shed. One of the most important features of the shed is the fact that flooring has been done away with and plain white sand will take the place of the previous creaking boards. In other sheds on this island the flooring proves the greatest kind of nuisance. A man stands in the stall with his gun at his shoulder just in the act of firing. Some one tiptoes be hind so as not to disturb the rifleman. There is just the slightest move ment of the boards which when com municated to the rifleman produces a very tired feeling and a movement of the rifle which is bound to have a very disconcerting effect. With the present sandy bottom a half dozen people might dance a jig to the rear of the rifleman without producing any disconcerting effect. Saw The situation of the shed with re gard to wind is good. There will be more of it than at Makiki butts, but it will come from the side so that the men will be entirely unaffected. There will be none of that disagreeable blowing directly into the shed such as is often experienced at the Makiki butts. The roof is of shingles instead of rough boards and in the event of rain storm one can sit down and read Du Maurier's famous novel called "Tril by" and about to be presented here by the Palmer Company, without thinking about a change of clothes upon arrival home. The gun racks in each of the eight compartments of the shed will be large enough to accommodate 15 guns. The bulkheads for the eight com panies are 146 feet long and 10 feet wide. At high tide the water comes within about an inch of the top of the coral rock foundation upon which the bulkheads stand. The markers' bulkheads are 7 feet high, 6 feet wide and 2 feet 6 inches thick, being furnished with a bottom which keeps the sand, contained there in, from settling. There will be a target on either side of each. The target bulkheads are 7 feet high, 12 feet long and 16 inches wide, being arranged with respect to sand just in the same manner as are the markers' bulkheads. To the left of the Company A mar kers bulkhead is a target bulkhead, but 6 feet long and to the right of that of Company H at the extreme right is another of the same length. Now the right markers' bulkhead of Com pany A is joined to the left one of Company B and so on to the left bulk head of Company H. This joining of two six foot bulkheads makes them much stronger than if they were separated. At the rear of each of the target bulkheads is a locker where the tar gets can be placed and sheltered from the rain and snow when the latter is liable to fall. Before long a walk from the central part of the shed to a corresponding position at the bulkheads will be built. Just at the end of the walk will be erected a flagpole upon which a "dan ger" flag will be hoisted whenever there is any shooting going on. When completed the butts will be the finest on the islands, easily ac cessible and just in a position where no one can complain of the disturbing crack of the rifle and fitted up with all the latest improvements and de vices calculated to remove disturbing causes from the riflemen. Probably the new military butts, en tirely completed, with electric or other signalling apparatus, will cost in the neighborhood of $1000, a small sum, when the excellence of the place is taken into consideration. Sergeant Elvin who is superintend ing operations at the new butts very kindly showed a reporter of this paper about the place and furnished many points of information. D. McKinnon is superintending the construction of the shed and Otto Oss that of the bulkheads. Both are doing their work well. A BOLD PROPOSITION. Sharpshooters and Denver Club May Yet Compete. The letter published In this pa"per a few days ago from the representative of the Denver Rifle Club seemed for the time being to put an end to the match negotiations between that club and the Sharpshooters, which have been pending for some time. Not hav ing a 500-yard range at present, the Sharpshooters would not entertain a proposition to include that range in the match. On the other hand, the Denver Club could not obtain military rifles that were serviceable for a match, and on that account wished to use their match rifles, allowing the Honolulu X. m team a nanaicap tnat would even lp matters. The result of the discussion is that a proposition will likely go forward by the Australia today, which is some what unique in shooting events, the Sharpshooters proposing to use their military rifles against the match rifles of the Denver Club, asking no handi cap allowance whatever, shooting to be at 200 yards only. The "nerve" of this proposition can be appreciated when it is understood that the term "match rifle" means one equipped with globe and Vernier sights, spirit level, etc., and using spe cial ammunition, a patched bullet be ing allowed, and a 3-pound trigger pull; whereas the "military rifle" is the or dinary one in use by the National Guard and the Sharnshooters. naine factory ammunition, and with a 6- pound trigger pull. This will be no "kindergarten" shoot, as the officers of the Sharpshoot ers know very well that their oppo nents include some of the best shots in the Rocky Mountain country. To win under these conditions would be glory, sure enough. Case of Affray. Young Tai and a native named Pii lani were locked up on the charge of affray late last night. It seems that Young Tai was going up Maunakea street and Piilani was coming down at about 11:30 o'clock. The two were on the same side of the street and Piilani being a little "under the weather," ran into the Chinaman, throwing him to the ground. There was a scuffle which resulted in very badly tattered clothes and some scratches on the faces of the principals. The case will come up in the police court today. The Advertiser 75 cents a month, de livered by carrier. Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report Royal ABSOLUTELY PURE DR. liDSCflNEK ON THE ROENTGEN HAY Lecture and Demonstration Be fore Prominent People NOTHING KNOWN OF NEW FOUCK. Outline of Discovery of " X-Ray "-Explanation of Apparatus Use! In Generation. Many Kinds of Tubes in Use Demonstra tion Showing Bones of the Fingers. Etc. Some seventy-five invited guests gathered in the lecture room of Pauahi Hall on the Punahou College grounds last evening for the purpose of listen ing to a lecture and demonstration on the "X Ray" by Dr. Lauschner, acting surgeon aboard the Australia. Dr. Lauschner being a graduate of the Berlin and Heidelberg universities and a pupil of a number of the leading scientific men of Germany coupled with the fact of the gentlman's reputation as a lecturer, called out nearly all of those who had been invited. Before the lecture those who came in were shown plates of hands, legs and arms with the bones visible. One of these was the beautifully shaped hands of a lady with an engagement ring upon It. This caused more than one question to be asked during the evening. All the platen were made by Dr. Lauschner. President Hosmer introduced the lec turer witii a few appropriate remarks and Dr. Lauschner proceeded with hie talk and demonstrations. The Roentgen or "X Ray" had created one of the greatest sensations ever made by discoveries in the realm of science. Dr. Lauschner dwelt upon the Im portance of demonstration in lectur ing on such topics as the one under discussion. He then explained the apparatus for photographing by means of the "X Ray." saying that each one of the parts was nothing new but on the contrary, something that had been employed before in obtaining other re sults. There was first of all the all important current. Then there was the Induction coil and last but not least, the Crooks tubes. The last had been used by Prof. Crooks for a num ber of years, were taken up by Lenhart and lastly, were employed by Roentgen himself. The discovery of the "X Ray" was not merely accidental. Roentgen had experimented on the nature of the ray obtained from the cathode termi nal for some time. Last year while experimenting with a piece of paper covered with a double salt he discov ered what he found to be a new force. At that time he thought that since the force came from the cathode terminal it must be some modification of the cathode ray but he found he was mis taken. In the "X Ray" the X repre sents a totally unknown quantity. No one knows what it is. No one knows anything of the nature of the ray. However, something is known of some of its products and effects. It will be some time before any one finds out what the rays are. Scientists have hesitated in making assertions as to what the rays may be because if they do they will have to overthrow accepted theories that have been in existence for many years. Dr. Lauschner then told of the great number of tubes that had been made since the "X-Ray" discovery. The one used by him was of English make and was standard.
