Inventor Explain Haw It ' Pierces
New York, May 14. James W. John
son, member of the firm of Isaac G.
Johnson & Co., of Bpuyten Dnyvill, in
ventors of the Johnson soft-note shell,
explained nut night how the soft steel
eap enables a projectile to pierce ainior
"1 think." -said Mr. Johnson, "that
the action of the Soft steel' cap may be s
illustrated by a simple experiment.
If yon would try to drive a shingle nail
through a piece of sheet Iron, the nail
would bend. But If yon , first drive a
nail through a piece of hardwood, it
will penetrate the sheet iron.
"The soft-nose, in other words, pre
vents the projectile from glancing off.
Ita whole force is concentrated at the
point. In one of the tests made at In
dian Head, we fired a projectile at the
armor plate at an angle of 21 degrees.
No sooner had the soft nose touched
the plate than the projectile turned at
a right angle to the plate and pene
trated It. The cap or soft nose, also
acts as a kind of lubricant to the shell."

Chicago, May 11. Charles A.
Towne, when asked for an expression
of opinion regarding the action of the
Sioux Falls convention, said: "I can
only say what I have always said since
my name has been mentioned in this
connection, that I have not sought the
office and have made no efforts to se
cure the nomination, but if the Popu
lists and the other parties think I am
the most available man for the position,
I will accept. It has been my wish
all along that the Sioux Falls conven
tion should name a committee to meet
with the committees of the other two
parties at Kansas City to consider the
vice-presidential question, bnt it looks
as though my friends at Bioux Falls
did not consider that the best course to
