CAPTAIN HINKEY DEFENDED.
Ex-Jndcje Howland Attacks Ills Critics at
tho Valo Alumni Dinner.
Tho Yalo alumni of Now York city
hold tboir annual lovo feast and glorifi
cation raoctiDg at Sherry's tho other
night with tho nsnal accompaniment of
collego yells and music, followed by
talks on various subjects. Ex-Judgo
Henry E. Howland, the president of tho
association, had somo things to say in
defenso of Captain Hinkoy of tho foot
ball team after ho had ticklod his an
dienco by tolling how fow vacant places
of poblio trust Yalo alnmni had left for
othor men. Referring to football, ho
"Wollington said tho football fields
of England gavo them tho victory at
Waterloo, and although I would ap
proach an editor who takes a different
viow in a deferential attitudo and beg
his pardon for differing from him, I
should say that whatover makes a man
strong, active, quick witted, temperate
and woll disciplined is of inestimablo
valuo to him in after life, and this is
what tho well regulated gamo of foot
ball docs. Yalo has been a great school
of instruction in it for tho past 15 years.
"It is difficult to restrain within tho
bounds of moderation tho feeling of in
dignation at tho treatment by certain
newspapers during tho past season of
tho. Yalo team, ono of tho best that has
ever been on tho field, and its captain,
who has never been outclassed by any
player of any collego or any time. Tho
flings and taunts at them for not follow
ing tho advico of self constituted men
tors as to with whom and whoro they
should playwero incessant Misrepre
sentation of their actions and motives
wcro of daily occurrence. Their work
wa3 belittled and their pretensions ridi
culed. "Whatever may have been tho rea
son, whether a conspiracy to punish him
for his natural rcservo or partisan prej
udice, thero was nothing charged against
him that equaled tho 'kneeing' that
theso newspapers havo given him, but
tho wholo body of Yalo men, who know
him, resent tho accusations, assuro him
that they respect him for his sand, his
ginger, his supremo excellenco as a
player and for his qualities as a man
and say to his critics, who assert that
they aim to toll tho truth, that they aro
very bad shots.
"Tho Yalo men havo never fought
over in tho newspapers their football
games, nor havo their friends. They
havo left it to others in every case, es
pecially tho gamo at Springfield. Ono
happy result of tho controversy is proba
ble that another gamo will never be
played ia New York, but all of them
on tho collego grounds."
President Dwight said among other
things, in referring to tho changes that
bavo taken place in collega life:
"Peoplo say that-tho present genera
tion of collego men is extravagant.
Things nro not going so badly as somo
peoplo imagine. Tho conditions have
changed. Tho lives of our sons aro not
limited in many of tho ways that we
were. Tho class which graduated 20
years ago spent on tho average a littlo
more than tho class that graduated last
summer. I rejoice that my children arc
not going to pass through what I did.

development of gentlemanly character

BUILDING GUNS MORE CHEAPLY.
A Swede's Tlan For Glrlnfr a Twist to
Balls From a Smooth Bore.
Tho very heavy cost of modem guns
is largely duo to tho timo and labor
which aro necessarily expended upon
tho operation of rifling them. Tho ma
terial itself is relatively cheap, and a
rifled gun, besides being much more
costly, is, other things being equal,
more short lived than a smoothbore. It
is almost impossible) so to mako tho gun
and tho projectilo that tho soft driving
bands of the latter shall, at tho moment
of discharge, accurately fit into tho
grooves and lands of tho boro and allow
no gases to pass ahead. When these
gases do pass ahead of tho projectile,
they score and damage tho interior of
tho gun, and whero tho new powders
aro used and tho gases of combustion at
tain an enormous degree of heat tho
process of deterioration, especially in
weapons of largo caliber, is often very
A Swedish engineer, W. T. Unge,
has devisel a method whereby he hopes
to save not only tho cost of rifling, bnt
also tho interior wear and tear for which
rilling is responsible. He proposes to
construct all guns with smoothbores and
to fit tho projectiles with gas checks,
which shall render it practically impos
sible for any gases to rush past thom.
In order to convey to tho projectilo an
axially rotary motion, such as is at pres
ent conveyed to it by tho action of the
rifling, ho has invented a mechanical
arrangement which, at tho instant of
firing, gives to tho gun itself tho rotary
motion. This may bo either constant or
increased. Ho has satisfied liimsolf that
the offect upon tho projectilo is exactly
tho samo as is produced by tho constant
or increasing twist of an ordinary rifled
gnu, and ho is of opinion that tho adop
tion of his system, while giving equal
or oven improved accuracy of lire, will
reduce tho cost of heavy guns by one
half aud add enormously to their endur
ance. Chicago Herald.

AMUSING CIVIL ENGINEERS.
Colonel Kins at W'illett's Point Show
Them Ills Bie; Magnet.
Ono day during tho recent convention
in Now York about 100 members of the
American Society of Civil Engineers,
with their wives and other ladies, vis
ited Willett's Point and spent several
hours as guests of Colonel William
King, commandant of the post. Tho post
band was brought aboard the steamer,
ud .if music, dancing and feasting
an L' u was spent merrily.
Colonel King then announced that a
few experiments with his large electro
magnet and some submarine explosions
would bo given for the entertainment of
Beer kegs were substituted for the
tegular torpedoes, as tho latter are too
expensive for ordinary experiments, and
tho kegs servo tho pnrposo as well. Three"
kegs wcro exploded at intervals of a few
minutes. Thoy contained respectively
165, 150 and 140 pounds of giant pow
der. Tho large explosion of the larger
cbargo threw a wooden buoy about 170
feet in tho air and made a waterspout
nearly 100 feet high.
Tho attention of the party was next
directed to Colonel King's huge gun
magnet, which stands on top of the
ramparts. Tho large 15 inch gun, wrap
ped with a dozen miles of insulated
wiro, forms the most powerful magnet
in tho world. Tho electricity ia supplied
by a largo dynamo. The colonel, who
always superintends the experiments,
gave orders for the current to be turned
on, and the capers of tho magnet began.
Somo of the spectators took spikes and
other scrap iron, which they found
was perfectly magnetized at a distance
of eight or ten yards from the gun, so
that when they put two pieces together
it was difficult to separate them. They
would throw tho iron in tho air, and it
would bo attracted with much force to
tho core of tho magnet Tho experiment
with cannon balls was next shown. Five
balls, weighing 350 pounds each, were
suspended, ono beneath tho other, from
tho muzzlo of tho gun. Tho bottom ball
hung within a few inches of the ground.
Then Lieutenant Morrow stood with his
back toward tho muzzlo of the gun and
stuck largo bolts and spikes all over his
chest Other scrap iron was also applied
and attracted by that which already
seemed to cling to his coat Ho walked
away from the magnet, and he got a
considerable distance before tho last of
tho iron which covered his breast drop
ped to the ground. Whitestono(N. Y.)
HE'S A HIGH ROLLER.
Tonne lrd Hope Almost Beaches the
Lord Francis Pelham Clinton Hope,
brother of the Duke of Nowcastlo and
heir presumptive to tho dukedom, mar
ried the other day 3Iis3 May Yohethe
young actress, and this week ho has
been spending a part of his honeymoon
in tho frowsy, an roc: an tic precincts of
tho bankruptcy court. The proceedings
showed that ho badly needs somo ono to
look after him, and he ought to bo
thankful ho has now got a clover young
woman as a wife, who will be able to
keep him out of the hands of the Jews
if anybody can, which appears to bo
doubtful. This interesting young aristo
crat came of ago in 1S87, and during
tho past seven years, although he en
joyed an income of $So,000, he has man
aged to accumulate debts to tho amount
of nearly $3,250,000.
This is considered a very fine perform
ance, of which any British nobleman
might bo proud, and which gets within
measurable distance of tho record estab
lished by that famous rake and gambler,
tho. Marquis of Hastings, more than a
generation ago. At first sight it would
appear easy oven for a young unmarried
man, born in the purple, to live with a
fair amount of comfort upon $85,000 a
year. In fact, Lord Hope declares that
ho kept well within his income as far as
regards actual personal living expenses,
but ho says he was handicapped at the
start with the payment of 215.000 suc
cession duty, and during tho seven years
bo incurred $22,930 liabilities on behalf
of others and paid nearly $80,000 inter
est to monoy lenders.
These figures aro considered quite
creditable to tho young lord, and he
would havo passed out of tho bankruptcy
court as a model young man, without a
stain upon either his moral or his busi
ness character, had tho official registrar
been content to inquiro no further, but
he, having no particular roverence for
the duke's brother, had the bad taste to
drag into tho light of day betting and
gambling debts to the extent of $350,
000 for tho seven years, and debts in
curred in theatrical speculations to tho
tune of $120,000, two items which
pretty well indicato the real causes of
his lordship's troubles. Ho might have
pleaded that his theatrical losses, if
heavy, had at least brought him a hand
some, clever wife, but he did not do so,
and his affairs stand adjourned for fur
ther investigation. London Letter.

WILL. VISIT THE MOON.
An Eccentric Kentncklan Who Spends
Most of His Time In Tree Tops.
Tho namoof Judgo Fenley is familiar
to every man, woman and child living
in and about Russollville, Ky.
The judge is a hoary headed man of
perhaps 60 years, yet ho is dailyprepar
ing to start on a joumey to the moon.
His homo is everywhere, yet the soli
tude of tho woods is his favorite abiding
place. It is reported that ho once lived
in a largo hollow tree, and from a plat
form which ho built in the topmost
branches ho often stood for hours and
gazed at tho planets.
A short distanco from tho littlo city
of Russellville might be seen an old
brick wall, which the judgo built as a
receptacle for the large boilers tie in-y''
tends using in the construction of bis
flying machines. Thobfck of means is
his ralyimpedimerif; but hegoeson day
in and day out, never showing the least,
sign of discouragement
The airship is not tho judge's only
hope of reaching the moan. As soon as
he can raise sufficient means he will
build a large cannon, and into that can
non he is to put a smaller ono and con
tinuo placing cannon in cannon until
they have reached one that will hold a
In firing theso cannons the judge is
going to uso dynamite, and they are to
be touched off by means of electricity.
Judge Fenley says if ha fails to reach
tho moon by means of his airship he
will beyond doubt go up by means of
the cann.ons. He is to place himself in
tho smallest cannon and fire them in
"By that means," says the old man,
"I can reach the moon in 10 or 13 days,
traveling at the rate of 10,000 miles an
hour and allowing for a variation of tho

Ho has written a history of Russell,

ho is in town. This history is said by

"I havo become accustomed to being
in high places, " says tho old man, "and
I can now stand on any limb that will

Het gets old boards and carries them
to the tallest trees he can find. Ho then
carries them up one by one and con

station ho spends most of his time.
He takes great delight in standing on
tho very edge of the platforms and in
climbing to the most dangerous places
ho can find. Few boys can equal him
in climbing, and his agility is remark
able for one of his years.
Upon being asked how he expected
breathe when ho leaves the earth and
launches into space he replied:
"Oh, thero will be no trouble about
that I will tako plenty of 'mashed

will have to make calculations as to
how much I will consume on my voy
age and mako plenty allowance for er

It is reported that he was onco a law

not this is true is not known, as his life
is a mystery.
No man need try to follow him in hi3
