When Company G, Second Battalion
of Engineers, arrives here on May 12
from the Coast to replace - Company
A, First Battalion, Major Winslow
will be switched from the command of
the First to the command of the Sec
, ond Battalion. By this change the

; paid off and will sail for the Coast

Manila tomorrow. Captain Otwell, whol
was for some time in charge of all
j Army engineering work here until suc

Doughboys Paid Today. ;
Major Beecher B. Ray, paymaster,
may pay off the Twentieth Infantry
battalion at Fort Shaf ter today, and
some time during the latter part of
the present week the two squadrons
of the Fifth Cavalry at Schofield Bar
racks, Leilehua, will be paid off. Tho
paying off of these three commands
aggregates something like $28,000.
Hit Targets Without Bullets.
Proficiency in marksmanship on the
part of the enlisted men o& the Army
is sought by the military authorities.
After a thorough test made by the
! board of Ordnance and fortification of
; the War Department, it has been de
I cided to use the subtarget gun ma-
chine and recording rifle rod outfits in
1 training soldiers in the use of small
I arms. Major General J. Franklin Bell,
the chief of staff, has issued, a circu
lar to the service stating that the ord
nance department will issue on req-
I uisition one subtarget gun machine to
each squadron of cavalry and batta
lion of infantry and not to exceed ten
recording rifle rod outfits for small
arms sighting and aiming instruction
to each troop of cavalry and to each
company of infantry, coast artillery,
engineers and signal corps.
About $40,000 has been spent by the
War Department to procure these sets
of apparatus. In all about 135 subtar
get gun machines have been pur
chased at $250 each, and 7900 recording
rifle rod outfits. "
With the subtarget rifle machine
soldiers may practise shooting indoors
without a rifle range, and without the
use of shells. The machine may be
described as a rifle with a captive
bullet, the course of which from rifle
to target is visible. The objective tar
get is located sixty feet from the
marksman, who handles the rifle free
ly. The gunholder is so designed and
"constructed that it Is absolutely im
possible to secure an artificial point
of rest with which to steady the gun
in aiming, the complete holder being
so counterbalanced that only the
weight of the firearm is supported by
the marksman. The rifle is held, aim
ed and discharged in . the ordinary
way. The work performed by an ex
pensive cartridge is effected by sim
ple mechanical contrivance. No am
munition is used. Its cost is saved
and all danger from accidents elim
inated. Instead of ammunition a
needle pierces a small subtarget in
exactly the spot aimed at on the. ob
jective target. '
