IB OUR GUNNERS LEAD WORLD "Fighting; Bob" Scores Red Tape System. Admiral Evans Also Haps Critic; of Our Marksmanship nt Snntlncn. Since "We IMslroyed hr Spanish Squadron In Ile cord Time." That the hitting powor of American battleships Is to-day, ship for ship, sec ond to that of no other navy nfloat, Is declared by Rear-Admiral llobley D. K vii tip reviewing. In Hampton's Mnjn r.lne for July, the wonderful advnncii we lmvo made In Riin-maklnjr since the Spanish vvar. ' At Santiago we thoiiKht our shootltiH fnlrly good,' writes "Flrthtlng Hob," "but learned later by the testimony of mi expert before the Senate naval com mittee that It was disgracefully bad. Whether It was Rood, bad, or dl. grace fnl. the fact remains that we destroyed the Spanish squadron In record time, and the Impression among those en gaged In the battle was that this com plete destruction was tho result of our flood nhootlnif. "It Is eminently unfair to compare our firing then with what wo could do to-day That It was as good as, or better than, any other Berries could have done at the time seems eeUvbllshcd by tho very favorable reports of many foreign crit ics. "After the dose of the Spanish Wnr many officers of tho navy became thor oughly interested In tho subject of the hitting power of our gune, and some of then these who came under my per Fonal observation merit personal men tion." adds Admiral Evans "The nso of smokeless powder for the navy became goneral immediately after the Spanish-American V. ar; during that conflict wo had used It for the smaller guns only, and brown priematlc powder for tho larger guns The Introduction of the new powder necessitated resisting all the guns, and this was done by tho ordinance department ae rapidly as pos sible. New nights were supplied to all of our heavier gtina, but In practlco theso sights proved to be. In every case, either defective In principle or too weak In structure to stand the heavy shock of discharge, "In Titarch, IMC, I was ordered to China to command the cruiser di vision of that station. Ilear Admiral Frederick RodM-crs, the commander-in-chief, was kind enotifrh to as sign tho battleship Kentucky us flag ship for me. This gave me the opportun ity T had been looking forward to, to see If I could do something toward making target practlco the valuable thing It should be. "We had no target ammunition In those days and therefore had to use regular pervlco charges and projectiles. As many of our shells had failed to ex plode when fired during tho Spanish American War, I selected, for the target, the face of a rocky bluff on a small Island off th entrance to the harbor, so that we could observe tne action 01 fuses nnd shells as well as determine the accuracy of the firing. We used full charges of smokeless powder for the first time, so far as I know, for regu lar target practice. "On July 5th the N'ow Orleans was inspected and a part of her inspection consisted In firing her guns one after another as rapidly ns it could safely be done. A regulation size tnrget was care fullv whitewashed on the face of tho rock and the ship steamed up and down in front of It at a speed of ten knots. Just as Is dime to-day, and fired until each gun pointer hn'i exhausted his al lowance. The accuracy and rupldltv of the firing was promising and gave evi dence of careful training. "I remember well how the first f-hot from a six-Inch gun knocked the bull's eve out of the target, and that one of the guns mode fifteen consecutive hits. The guns and their mounts functioned well, but the four and seven-tenths guns ihowed a tendency to Jam the breech blocks, which mado the firing slow. The. recoil of these weapons were very vio lent nnd often Injured the men firing them. One man had his collar broken in this way. "The Kentucky went on tho rang.i July 18th for her firing and the results were In some, respects startling. The gun with tho McLean sight made seven hits in one minute, and they were all bunched In r small space. The field of the telescope was small and the cross wires coarse, which made the firing ilow, but It wns evident that the gun coidd keep on hitting for any length of time, In view of the goor results ob tained, I sent to Paris nnd ordered telescopes of high power and finer cross wires for nil guns. The chief of ord nance paid the bill, and from thnt dav to this our guns have been furnished with this kind of sight whenever It tould be used, nnd great Improvement has been mado In the manner of Its construction. The orders of the navy department changed our procedure In minor details only, such ns making us flro at a canvas target rather thnn nt one palntod rock. The principles wo established and the methods wo pract iced were approved and continue In the service, to this day. . "Early tn lf04 I returned from the Kast, and a tew months later was ord ered to command tho North Atlantic Squadron, afterwards tho Atlantic Fleet. Upon assuming command I found the turret gun sights of all the battleships In the pamo unsatisfactory condition ns had existed In tho Idist. I whs again fortunate In having on my staff an offi cer of exceptional ability, Lleltenant Commander Mark Bristol, who succeed ed In fitting sights to nil the guns.

For the same reason the Nossar peoplo will make flights only during the day. The ship which comes to Fturllngton is "1 feet In diameter and has n gas capacity of 13(00 cubic fet.

Raptlst State missionary, and Deacon Wlllnrd Crane of tho First Raptlst Church of this city have returned from West ford, where they went to Inspect the situ for a new T.aptlst Church In that place. TI,' church r.ow standing Is over 100 years old and has become unsafe because of the weight of tho steeple, which Is breaking down tho walls. The walls have already begun to crack badly. The parish In Westford Is a small one nnd consequently tho convention will be obliged to share a portion of tho expense of a now church. At the present time It Is not known what the cost of the new structure will be. N'lchols & Parker, contractors, went to We6tford Thursday to estimate the prabnbln cost. The new structure will bo modern in every respect and will contain a chapel, con nected with the church and on the same floor. TIIK .SIIiVKHHORN.

A large number of friends ami parents wero present, tho house being taxed to Its capacity. The class, bonded by Marshul liornnrd C. Wlmlen, marched up the right alslo to music by Waterman's orchestra. The program was opened by an oration entitled "Tho Administration of Theodora ttoosvelt," by Kdwnrd Pl'illlp Oero. The speaker told of tho conditions nf the republic when Roosevelt took up the duties of president and cited examples of the accomplishments of his administra tion: tho settlement of the coal strike, the pence negotiations of Russia nnd Japan, the development of the navy nnd the voyage of tho licet around the wot Id, the enforcement of the law and the capable flnnnclal mnngeinent nf national nffnlrs. In closing Mr. Oero snld that Roosevelt takes a place beside Washing ton and Lincoln. Ills administration speaks for Itself, Miss Dorothy Hill then told of Samuel de Champlaln and the lake. Cliamplaln's greatest achievements were tho founding of Quebec and the discovery of the lake. Mips Hill gave some of the particulars nf his discovery as related In his dlnry. Hut no act of h.3 brought about nu-h great results as his battle with the Indians who were deadly enemies of the French for years afterward. Champlaln was a hero, fearless, daring and courageous. Ills two great achievements stand is eternal monuments to his fume. The next fubject was "The Spirit of Cooperation" by Mirtln P. SUllmnn. The tercentennrv nnd the Sicilian disaster are two present examples of eo-operntlon. The tercentenary could never accomplish great results If New York nnd Vermont worked separately. The Sicilian disaster Illus trated the gnod of eo-opr.-itton when tho I'nlled States nno Burope worked together to aid the snffeirs. In Its original sense." Mr. Sllllman snld, "cooperation meant union. In Its modern sense II Is the union of worllng men In business for the '-etterlns of their own Interests.
