GENERAL EPOrJIKG SEWS OF THE DAT
Just as regular as each winter season
comes there are strong complainings among
local baseball admirers about the local club
not giving young home players a chance.
Time and time again it has been argued, ?ud is
being argued by the complainers that Pitts
burg has lost many good men because of
neglecting promising home talent. Now
that local players, that is young players
coming into prominence, are more numerous
than ever, the complaints above re
ferred to are proportionately stronger.
Those who have a strong desire to see home
talent tested at home have some good reasons
and arguments on their side.' Eat the officials
of the local club have also a good case. During
a conversation on the question yesterday Man
ager Phillips said some very interesting things,
and tendered advice to young players that Is
worth making a note of. He said:
"It is a great mistake for anybody to think
that we are not prepared to give every young
local player all the encouragement possible.
There are many reasons, however.why it seems
THESE TODSG PLAYEKS,
and to a great extent better for the club, that
they should mabe their professional debut out
side their own city. The benefits to be derived
arc greater in favor of the players than for the
club. "Were I a younc player, and knowing
what I do now, I certainly would not want to
make my reputation in my own city. I'll tell
you why. A young player in his own town ap
pears before hundreds that he knows person
ally. He is anxious beyond what is required to
do great things, and this over-anxiety begets a
nervousness that has a tendency to ruin his
prospects completely. The familiar crowd jeers
him for the mistakes that nervousness causes
him to make, and he cets from bad to worse.
Tiiis is true because we all have found, both
young and old, that there is ever a particularly
strong desire to do great things at home.
'I will suppose a case from another stand
point. Suppose a young plaj er begins hi good
work in his own city and does first class. Say
he knocks out two or three good bits in a game
and fields brilliantly. There are two evil ten
dencies which may follow. He may, by the
hurrahs and hero-worship of his friends, cet
the sn elled-head fever, and that will injure
him. He will also be lionized in a way that
will tempt him to live too fast for a while.
There is still another probable outcome; lie
may, after doing splendid work, make a series
of pardonable mistakes and then
DOWIf GOES HIS STOCK
in the estimation of the majority of his
townsmen, and he becomes disheartened. It is
a fact that when a player does a great thins
there is a prevailing opinion among a lnrfre
number of people to the effect that lie should
continue to do great things. Altogether I firm
ly hold the opinion that as a rule a young play
er who wants to mo in the baseball profession
should ioin a club outside his own city "
There was plenty of talk about among the
amateur baseball players yesterday. The action
of the County League at its meeting on Monday
evening has, to say the least, caused consider
able dissatisfaction. Of course the league had
good reason for its action, and the fact also re
mains that all the clubs applying for admission
could not be admitted. However, a represent
ative of the W. J. Kuehnes, one of the rejected
clubs, makes the following statement:
"We wore, indeed, surprised to learn
that McKeesport was admitted in view of the
fact that not long ago McKeesport deemed
almost every club in the league insolvent, and
said very ungenerous things about the organ
ization. Besides, look at the great distance be
tween Emsworth and McKeesport, and from
all accounts the latter's grounds are most
miserably located. However, we feel hopeful
that we will still be in the league, because it
seems certain that Braddock will not material
ize. The Duquesnes will also disappear, at
any rate the Marshalls will play in
the name of the Dnquesnes. But
the great objection I have is that
the entire proceedings were illegal. The unan
imous consent of the entire league was needed
to select four clubs, and Braddock's represen
tatives were absent. Xo club was, therefore,
admitted by unanimous consent."
An official of the league, in replv to the
above, said: "We could not possibly satisfv
everybody, ana no matter what clubs had been
selected there would have been discontent.
We heard every case stated, and certainly
agreed on clubs that appeared most likely to
continue through the season."
THE M'KEESPORT CLUB.
KIcbtengnle and Nnnghton Will be Signed
by Manager Tarreyson.
Manager Tarreyson. of the'McKeesport Club,
will proceed at once to effect the organization
of the club at that place and elect the officers,
after which he will select the men
and place them. Xichtengale and Naugh.
ton, the latter being a mute but a
good catcher, are the first to be selected. The
McKeesport Driving Park will be selected as
Tarreyson and Baker will sign with the
Mansfield and Speer and Jones with the Mem
phis Clubs. Youngmanwill pitch for one of
the Allegheny County League Clubs.

as agent of Mr. Maxwell, the owner of the
4-year-old Galore, who is now in Mr. Morewood's
stable, at Hempstead, L. L, notified the Coney
Island Jockey Club to-day that he wanted
Galore to remain in the Suburban handicap,
and he inclosed a check to the horse's credit.
Maxwell is expected back from England, early
next week, when he will no doubt make ar
rangements to put his horse in tbe bands of a
competent trainer. It was rumored uptown
to-night that Galore was amiss and that a vet
erinary had gone down to see him.
Sullivan Under Cover.
New Yoek. February 19. John L. Sullivan
rived in town yesterday and registered at the
Grand Union Hotel. He kept well under cover
the whole day. While he is here he will prob
ably fix np tbe preliminaries for a testimonial
benefit He will probably soon go on a sparring
tonr extending to the Pacific Mope. Sullivan
has lost his haggard look and his body is fast
filling out to those proportions that won for
him tbe title of the "Big Fellow." K has
evaded all his old haunts so far. and will 'rob

champion. Is lying very ill at the residence of
her father, John Hines. Allegheny. The
champion states, in reply to the many chal
lenges of Slosson and Daly, that he is willing
to play any ol them for a reasonable amount of
money. At present however, amid his do
mestic tronble, it is hardly likely tbat he will
make any definite engagement.

David B. Sheehan. the veteran sprinter, re
fumed from New Castle yesterday, where he
defeated Holden in a 100-yard race. Sheehan
says tbe race was a good one. Holden's backers

likely that the match will be made.

fBV CABLE TO TUB DISPATCH.
Nat-les, February 10. The first game of
baseball by Spalding's globe trotters was
plajed here this afternoon with great eclat.
The bases were pitched on the camp of Sit
marte military parade ground, which is occa
sionally used for cricket purposes, and 3,000
people saw us play. The assemblage was pic
turesque as well as a motley one. Around the
field , were many carriages containing
beautiful ladies in bright attire, bnl
iantly dressed military officers glittering
in gold buttons, and hundreds of peasants
from the neighboring villages. Among the
notables were Consul General Camphausen
and daughter, and the Consul Generals of the
S tbcrlands, Switzerland, Norway and Sweden,
with their families; the rector of the Anglican
Church, Lady Holden and daughter, Admiral
Acton and family, Commandatore Sizz and
family, and many other shining society lights.
The playing ground is about five miles east
of the center of the city, and is overlooked by
Vesuvius on the south and the snow topped
Apennines on the east. The former looked
lovely, and the latter very impressive. The
weather was very mild to-day, the temperature
being delightful, the turf bespangled with
daisies, and the sky clear enough to redeem
Italy's reputation, which some of our party had
began to doubt.
The American and English tourists present
took great interest in the game, which was
very close until the fifth inning, in which Bald
win was pounded for seven. The game was
called at the end of the fifth inning, and the
4,000 people who saw the first game of baseball
ever played in Italy returned to their honjes
greatly pleased with the sport Following is
the score by innings. Baldwin and Daly were
the Chicago battery, and Healy and Earle for
Chicagos 0 0 0 2 02
All Americas 0 0 0 178
Our game in Rome will be played on Satur
day, at the Villa Borghese, with the Prince's
consent It is expected .that King Humbert
will be present The head of the American
College in Rome has applied, on bebalf of the
party, to the Pope to grant us an audience, and
it is expected the great favor will bo granted us.
HUGGIKS MEANS BUSINESS.
lie Will Challenge Bernard Wnltcra to c.
Mr. Joseph A. Huggins, the famous rifle shot
of this city, has resolved to definitely challenge
Bernard Walters to shoot a match of 100 shots
for 100 a side, open for &50 a side. Mr. Hug
gins' action has been prompted by the spread
caglo challenges of Mr. Walters, together with
the pressure of his, Huggins', friends. Yes
terday Mr. Huggins received a letter from Mr.
Frank Hart, Doylestonn, Pa., wherein Mr.
Hart offers to stand $50 with him, Huggins, if
he will shoot Walters. T. T. Cartwright, of
Springfield, Mass.. also offers to stand $25 in
Mr. Huggins' stake.
Last eveningMr. Huggins said: "Mr. Walters
has been offering to shoot anybody, bnt he now
wants to confine the 100 ;bots to three hours. A
limit of this kind is unreasonable. I will shoot
him on the Walnut Hill ran ge, Boston, in the
regular vt ay, and this ought to suit him, be
cause he is in New York and, therefore, much
nearer Boston than "lain."
A match between these experts on fair terms
will be of national interest, and if a contest
does not take place it will be no lault of Mr.
ARRANGING FOR THE RACE.
The 142-Hour Contest to Tako Plnce In
Arrangements are fast being completed for
the proposed 142-hour pedestrian contest which
is to take place in the Grand Central Rink un-'
der the management of Harry Davis. The con
test will start five minutes after midnight on
April 8. Manager Davis received a letter from
George Noremac yesterday, in which the latter
says that all the leading pedestrians in the
country will take part in tbe contest
Manager Davis -has decided to charge 15 en
trance fee, and this will provide each starter
with a free cot and stove. Noremac thinks
that there will be at least between 30 and 40
starters. A new feature will be a prize of 25
for the man who covers tbe most miles each
day. This prize will be in addition to the per
centage of tbe receipts. The race promises to
be a great one.

That Is the Cry cf the Amcrlcnu Reform
Association at Chicago Cleveland
Writes n Strong Letter
Gcorco n Favorite.
Chicago, February 19. The convention
of the American Tariff Eeform Association
began business at the Madison Street Thea
ter at 2 o'clock this afternoon, when John
Z. White, Secretary of the Association,
called the meeting to order. Mr. "White
said that the object o! the convention was
to arouse popular sentiment on the question
of a reform in the tariff. He then read the
following letter from President Cleveland:
I have received the invitation of the Tariff
Refonn League to be prescntat the convention
of tariff reformers to be held in Chicago. I
have also, read the circular of the league accom
panying this invitation, in which the objects
and purposes of the proposed convention are
specifically set foith. The scheme of prac
tical and efficient work therein described
meets with my hearty approval and promises,
if honestly adhered to, the most valuable aid
in the furtherance of a cause which is very
near to the interests and welfare of our people.
The danger which we have to guard against is
the misleading of oar countrymen by specious
theories, cunningly contrived, and falsely offer
ing to the neonle relief from present burdens.
and the legitimate expense necessary to sepure
the benefits of beneficient rule under the sanc
tion of free institutions.
Tbe declared purpose of your League will
not be attained nntil all those Interested in the
economic question which is now impressed
upon their attention are freed from all sophis
tries and clouding fallacies, and until the sub
ject of tariff reform is presented to them as a
topic involving the relief of hc plain people of
the land, in their homes, from useless and un
just expense. The question is a i-iraple and
plain one, and needs but to be fairly presented
to be understood. It is the positive duty of
your organization to guard tbe people against
My extreme interest in the work which your
league has undertaken, and in the expressed
objects of the proposed convention, would lead
me to accept your invitation if it were possible
to do so. But my public duties here positively
prevent such acceptance. Hoping tbat the
convention will bo very successful, and with an
earnest wish for the prosperity and success of
your league in its efforts to enlighten and ben-
ent tne people, i. am, yours very truly,
A number of speeches were delivered.
The first was by Thos. G. Shearman, of New
York, who advocated absolute free trade.
B. K. Bowker, of New York, another of
the orators, was sorry that his State had not
done its duty in November, but he claimed
for the State' the credit of furnishing the
leader in the great work of educating the
people into the acceptance of the principles
.of free trade. This evoked applause, as
indeed did every reference to Mr. Cleveland.
J. Sterling Morton was made permanent
Chairman and Aretas W. Thomas Secre
tary. Mr. Morto"n sounded the keynote of
his remarks in the declaration that: "The
tariff is for robbery it should be reformed
for revenue or repealed for justice."
To-night Central Music Hall was filled
with people who came to hear Governor
Buckncr, Chas. K. Ladd nnd Mr. Shear
man inadrocacy of the purposes of the
convention. New York delegates to the
convention occupied boxes on the right of
the stage, Henry George in their midst.
While the hall was filling Mr. George was
pointed out to the new-comers, and many
cries lor a speech were made. Mr. George
declined to respond. '
A TISIT0E ON 'CHANGE.
Denmark, n Mouse-Colored Mule, Creates a
I6PXCIAL TELIOltAM TO THE DISPATCH.l
New Yoek, February 19. A sleek and
close-clipped mouse-colored mule, decorated
with red, white and blue paper rosettes, and
with a knot of ribbons at the end of its well
shaved tail, was led into New street at high
noon to-day. Around the mule's neck were
more ribbons, from which hung a placard
giving the mule's name as "Denmark," and
telling that it had been voted at the Man
hattan Dispensary Fair to Thomas C. Buck,
of E I Enos & Co. The mule
was docile enough, and rather
melancholy looking. It couldn't
be taken into the office of tbe firm, and
couldn't stand out in the cold. It was too
closely clipped for that. So it was led first
into the big office of the United States Ex
press building, opening on New street, and
lrom,there was taken right into the board
room of the Stock Exchange.
rXne mule had to kneel and partly crawl
through tbe storm doors leading to the Ex
change floor, but the feat was accomplished.
Alfred DeCordova mounted the mule and
forced it to prance around the board room.
The next rider was Edward Chase, and then
others took turns until Mr. Buck came in
and claimed his property and took it away.
WAT BILLING AND WEIGHTS
Will be Examined by Joint Inspectors nnd
Nmv Yoke, February 19. The trunk
line Board of Presidents had under consid
eration to-day the alleged manipulation of
rates on traffic from western points via
Peoria and other competitive junctions, and
the action of the Peoria Board of Trade
boycotting the inspection of billing. The
trunk lines have agreed not to continue
joint rate on other traffic arrangements with
any connecting roads" engaged in manipula
tions and devices which clearly violate re
cent agreements and the inter State com
mercelaw. In order to be assured that freight is here
after correctly billed at published tariff
rates and correct weights, they have also
further agreed to make a condition of the
continuance of traffic arrangements that the
joint inspectors shall examine way billing
and weights and correct tbe s.ime whenever
round improper, ana have ordered such iu
spection put in effect at once.

rSPECIAIi TELEGEAM TO TUB DISFATCII.1
Eele, Pa., February 19. To-day's elec
tion resulted in the election of Charles
Clarke, Democrat, over Frank F. Cleve
land, Eepublican, by about 900. The de
feat of Mr Cleveland by so large a majority
was the result of a popular feeling in favor
of paying the Mayor a salary and requiring
bim to devote his time to the office.
Cleveland is a leading manufacturer and
Clarke has been the City Controller for two
terms. The Democrats carried both
branches of Council. The day was cold,
but agreeable, and about half of the vote

pede is a Possibility.
TflEI SAI HE IS BACKED BI RUSSIA,
The Czar Being Anxious to Repay Floquet for Kot
Kicking Up a Eow.
Carnot is still without a Cabinet. Even
obscure politicians seem tq be afraid of en
tering Meline's proposed ministry. M. De
Freycenet has been called, and will give
his answer to-day. In the meantime a Ee
publican deputy has flopped to Boulan
ger, and others are expected to follow him.
It is said that the Pan-Slavists are supply,
ing the General with gold to carry on his
campaign. This sensational story comes
Pabis, February 19. In spite of con
tinued negotiations, the settlement of the
Cabinet crisis appears as distant as ever.
The failure of M. Meline indicates the ab
solute impossibility of forming a Cabinet
on Ferryist or Opportunist lines. It was to
demonstrate this that President Carnot in
sisted so strongly that M. Meline attempt
the task, saving that if he could not suc
ceed no man in his group could hope to do
President Carnot to-day offered the Pre
miership to M. Tirard, only to meet with
another refusal. He then sent M. Tirard to
summon M. Meline, whom he urged to make
another effort under fresh conditions. M.
Meline steadily declined to undertake the
task. The difficulty of the position may be
realized from the fact that an obscure poli
tician named Prevet was afraid to risk en
tering M. Meline's proposed ministry.
Later, President Carnot summoned Senator
Magnin, a former Minister, and a well ac
credited report says that the President
strongly inclines toward a Cabinet formed
mainly of Senators, conceiving that such a
ministry would have a better prospect of se
curing general support than a Government
composed of the more pronounced members
of the Chamber; but late this evening noth
ing had been settled.
There is no basis for the rumors regarding
an extra parliamentary (Jabinet, which
would be unconstitutional. Deputy De
lattero has withdrawn bis motion in favor of
the formation of a ministry outside of par
liament. At a meeting of the Badical Left,
several Deputies expressed themselves in
favor of a "concentration Cabinet," having
a special mandate to conduct elections and
comprising a Minister of the Interior ac
ceptable to all the Bepubitcan groups.
President Carnot will probably be obliged
to give the' new Cabinet the right qf dis
solution. Ex-President Grevy has been taken sud
denly ill. It is feared that his constitution
will break down. The members of his
family are very anxious. The report that
General Boulanger would make a tour of
Italy and Hungary is denied. M. Mellot,
the Eepublican Deputy for Cher, has
written to Boulanger announcing his ad

It History Again
1SFECU.L TELEGKA1I TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Indianapolis, February 19. Disbelief
has given way to grim despair. The Hoosier
Eepublican leaders who couldn't believe
that the Cabinet as printed in The Dis
patch yesterday was correct, are becoming
convinced against their will, and express
their feelings in copio"us and elaborate pro
fanity. General Harrison's Cabinet, so far
as the rioosiers are concerned, seems to be
one of ihose things that the more it is
seen the less it is liked, and tbe prospect of
any improvement in it between now and
March 4 is not brilliant. General Harri
son's much talked-of backbone, theHoosiers
believe, will be just strong enough to make
him stick obstinately to his selections now
that they are made.
W. H. H. Miller, the law partner, of the
President-elect, is the man who was thought
most likely to be knocked ont as a sop to
the dissatisfied critics of the Cabinet, but
to-night at least two Eepublicansof national
reputation who have called Miller's an-
pointment ill advised, admit that it is
fixed. Aside from Warner Miller, whose
acceptance of the Department of Agri
culture is doubtful, the least certain man
on the list is Thomas, of Illinois, for the
Navy. General Harrison has determined
to leave one place open until he gets to
Washington, so as to be free to deal with
possible complicatiors arising at the last
moment. The open, place is the Navy De
partment. If Miller declines the Department of
Agriculture, and it goes to Palmer of Mich
igan, then the geographical balance will be
restored, probably, by the, dropping of
Thomas and the substitution of a New
York man, or of Proctor,of Vermont. If cir
cumstances make this change inadvisable,
Eusk may be dropped and Proctor go into
the War Department, but this is improba
ble. It is also possible tbat the Pacific
coast may be provided for by the dropping
There is even more of a duplication of
history about the selection of Windom for
the Treasury than has been supposed, if a
story told here to-night is correct. It is said
that J. C. New holds a letter from James
A. Garfield, making a qualified tender
to him, in 1881, of the Treasury De
partment. Garfield was very anxious to
get an Indiana man into his Cabinet, and
Harrison and Porter bad each declined. It
is said that the appointment of New was
then prevented by the efforts of Mr. Blaine,
who shoved Windom in ahead of him. The
choice of General Harrison, last week, for
the same department, was last week practi
cally narrowed down to New or Windom,
and it was the efforts of the Blaine men that
again put Windom ahead.

NOT MUCH OF A GOT.
The Thurlow Eival of the Hainsworth
Failure Full of Flaws.
ITS ACCEPTANCE NOT PE0BABLE.
The Star Gauge Shows it is Fairly .Lined
With Cracks and Hole3.
IT MIGHT AS WELL DATE BURST,
And the Only Wonder Seems to bo That it Did Stand
the Firing Test.
The chance's for the acceptance by the
Government of the open-hearth cast steel
gun made by the Standard Company, of
Thurlow, are daily decreasing. As the ex
amination of the gun progresses the weapon
is found to be full of flaws, cracks and
holes. As the specifications are very parr
ticular on this point, it is scarcely probable
the Thurlow gun, even if it did stand a test
with powder, has any more show with the
Government than its Pittsburg rival would
have had if it hadn't exploded.
(SPECIAL TELEQRJOI TO THE DISFATCH.l
Washington, February 19. The ex
amination of the open-hearth steel cast gun
made at the works of the Standard Com
pany at Thurlow, near Chester, Pa., is still
in progress at the proving grounds at
Annapolis, under the superintendence of
Lieutenant Commander Dayton, and the
farther the search proceeds the more it be
comes evident that the naval authorities
cannot accept the gun. The Ordnance
Bureau is to-day in receipt of several bore
impressions from the Lieutenant, which
exhibit more serious flaws in the interior
walls of the weapon than there were at any
previous time suspected.
Though the authorities at the bureau will
express no opinion, the inference is that in
the proving of the gun the- explosion and
the friction of the projectile broke away thin
partitions of metal which concealed these
flaws when the gun was in process of smooth
boring and'riflins, and a natural conjecture
is that the entire casting is full of these
cracks and holes.
, HOW THE TEST IS MADE.
The bore impressions are taken on India
rubber. An instrument is used which
nearly fits the bore, but with one small sec
tion at one side wedge-shaped, that it may
be slid back along the larger section thus
leaving, when in that position, increased
space between the instrument and tbe wall
of the gun at that side. A broad piece of
India rubber, softened with hot water, is
placed on this wedge-like section,
and it is then, by means of long
handles, slid into its proper position.
closing the bore and pressing the rubber
with great force into the grooves, against
the interior walls of the gun, and, of course,
into any holes or flaws that may be there.
The result is an infallible imprint of the
interior of tbe weapon, which cannot be
disputed by the most skeptical in regard to
tbe purposes of the Navy Department in its
treatment of the steel cast guns.
The impressions forwarded by Mr. Day
ton to-day, though they are taken from a
very small portion of the interior of tbe
gun, exhibit an almost startling array of
flaws, principally in the form of "blow
holes," some of them an inch long and half
an inch deep. Other places show a rough
surface, indicating the presence of innumer
able smaller holes, which have been broken
into by the force of the explosion and the
friction of the shell.
WHERE THE WONDEE LIES.
If these impressions are an example of the
condition ot the casting throughout, as it
seems fair to assume, the wonder is that thl
gun endured the strain of a single fire, and
the fact that it did endure it in this imper
fect condition excites the query as to the
strength of a perfect casting, which may
possibly be much greater than that of a
b'uilt-np gun, as was asserted by Superin
tendent Baldt, of the Standard works, would
be the case with sn open-hearth gun, per
fectly cast and properly tempered.
The present question, however, is, Will
this gun be accepted? If not, the result of
all this bother will be rather discouraging
to manufacturers, and they may not care to
go into further costly exneriments if a gun
which stood the test of the ten rounds is
thrown aside because of a slightly unusual
expansion and the presence of a lotof little
holes. But the specifications are rigid, and
it is not to be supposed that the ordnance
bureau and the Secretary of the Nary will
abate one jot of them for. the purpose of en
couraging the manufacture or further ex
periment with guns of which every man in
the navy is afraid.
The first paragraph of the specifications
stipulates that "the castings from which
these guns are made must be composed of
steel of domestic manufacture, made from
the best quality of raw material, uniform in
quality throughoutihe mass, and free from
slag, seams, cracks, xavities, flaws, blow
holes, unsoundness, foreign substances and
all other defects affecting their resistance
value." In the twenty-first paragraph it is
stated that a"critical inspection will be made
after the test, anrj tbe piece must not exhib
it any defects or weakness."
The "critical test," it is !afe to say, will
not be less critical than it ought to be, and
it has shown, so far as it has been carried
by means of the electric light and the star
gauge, that there is an expansion in parts
of the powder chamber from eight to pine
thousandths of an inch, and in only slightly
lesser degree in parts of the piece near the
muzzle. 'This is nearly one hundredth part
of an inch, and, as only four-hundredths of
an inch is allowed for the "grip" of the
shell, it will be easily recognized how seri
ous this expansion is. In other words, a
projectile in passing out of a gun is sup
posed to be compressed two-hundredths of
an inch on each side, to give it a grip on the
rifles and receive its rotary motion, and jnst
as tbat grip is lessened the projectile loses
ONXY ONEAXTEBN ATiyE.
This expansion, in connection with the
extraordinary exhibit of flaws, which seem
now to exceed anything suspected or found
in the Pittsburg gun, 'will almost certainly
decide the navy authorities to reject the
gun without an if or a but, and then all ex
perimenting will be at an end until Con
gress provides an appropriation for further
tests, or until manufacturers, led on by this
near approach to success, are willing to
conduct experiments at their own expense.
Of course not a word is dropped to indi
cate the verdict of the department until the
report is all in and the evidence can be
weighed as a whole, but it may as well be
set down now as an accomplished fact that
the Standard gun will no' more be accepted
than if it had blown to pieces like irs Pitts
burg twin. The $5,300, which a successful
proving would have put in the pocket of
the Standary Companv, will remain in the
Treasury, alongside" of the 53,000 Mr.
Hainsworth would have captured if the
Bessemer gun had withstood the test.
"I do not say that ibe Standard gun will
not be accepted," said a high authority of
the Navy Department to-day, in conversa
tion witn the 'correspondent of The Dis
patch, "but I will say that a built-up gun,
showing similar defects, would be promptly
thrown back on the hands of the manufac
turers as good 'for nothing but to interred
in the cemetery for old iron. But it is not
thought or desired at the Department that
this should be the end of experiments with,
the cast gun. On the contrary many ex
perts in ordnance have been led by the
brief experiments to believe tbat tbe cast
gun is a thing of the near future, but that
the successful piece will be secured only by
increased care, new appliances and new
methods of removing impurities from the
