Y., May 28. -A large number of peo-ilc from all over Central New York here by the special and regular midday tialiu yesterday to ness the public experiment of the Dr. Justin dynamite gun. The weather was fine all the morning, but at noon the clouds to lower with a prospect of rain later. Much interest was shown and every- thing pointed to another successful ex- periment. The CHUUOII was fired at 3 p.m. and exploded into a thousand pieces. No- body was hurt but there were many nar- row escapes. Huge musses of iron were thrown hundreds of feet. A piece of can- non, measuring four feet through, came fly- ing through the air and landed within three feet of the Hyrncuse Herald corre- spondent who was wutchiug the proceed- ings from Ix-hlud a tree. Another large piece went in the opposite direction, tear- ing a large chunk from the counter of a temporary refreshment stand about 500 feet away. The keeper of the stand was inside, but the missile grazed his head and scattered the coutents of the stand. It is said that the dyuamitedid not explode the gun, but tlie charge of powder. Among the visitors who arrived in the afteruoon were Lieut. Com. Washburn Maynard and L. P. Davidson of the navy and Commander Theodore P Jewell of the I nil ed States naval station, all of Acwuort, K i. Five hundred peoplewere present. The cunuuu used weighs pounds. The bare is la feet long and 9 Inches iu diameter. The target waa a bluff about cue third of a mile from ths gun. Dr. Justiu and his assistants loadrd the shells with dynamite. Two of the lliells are charged with eighteen pounds each of dynamite and four have twenty- five pounds each. Young Wing, repre- senting the Chinese government, was here to-day. The premature explosion has caused some speculation as to how it may affect the development of the invention. Dr. Justiu is, however, confident that the catastrophe was dup largely, If not en- tirely, to Imperfect metal in the construc- tion of the shell whic h allowed the outer steel shell to break and let the dynamite explode. His backers, Messrs. Patten and Dewittof Can list ota, say that they will procure another gnu anil go on with the experiments of throwing a magazine of dynamite by rouse of gunpowder. The explosion veMerday caused the greatest constei nation among the many spectators and it is ed almost a miracle that no one was killed The twelve-ton cannon waa scattered in fragments over the space of half a rnile.

The following letter from the secretary f state accompanied the message of the resident: To THE PiiEsiDKNT-l have the honor to sub- it herewith the report of the cotnmltte on aukiug as unanimously adopted by the in- irnalijual American conference, recently in isalon In this city, it waa the wish of the onfereuce that this proposition of such great terest to every American republic shoulil as rouiutly as possible secure the earnest at- ntlon of the congress of the United States. foreign commerce of the nations south of Uulf of Mexico and the Rio Orunde. mounts annually to more than t present the people of the United States enjoy meagre of this market, hut the action recent conference Mill result, I believe, In the ruiuoval of curtain obstacles which now tend to obstruct the expansion of our trade. One of Ihe most serious of thiae obstacles is I he absence of a sjsteiu of direct exchange and credits h) reason ofuhirl, tlie exporting and importing merchants uf tlie I'nlted States enKatft'd in romiueree witli Central and Soulh Aimrica have been compelled to pay the bunkers of London a tax upon trans- action. year our commerce with the countries 111 amounted to 567, of which tho of nieichamlise were valued at and tbe Imports of specie and bul- lion u ere J-J1.M1.TB1, while our exports con- sisted merchandise valued at and in and bullion. Of Ihe miwhandlse Imported Into the United Stales the greater part WK8 paid for by remit- tances to London and the cities of the conti- nent to cover drafts against European letters uf credit. For Ihe use of these credits a com- mission of of 1 percent. Is cus- tomarily paid, so that the European banks en- joyed a large profit upon our buHlness with a minimum of risk, This sj stem steadily results In losses to our merchants In Interest and aifferences In exchange aswell ug In commis- sions. These losses would be largely reduced to our merchants by the establishment of an international system of hanking between the American republics. The merchants of this country are us depend- ent upon the bankers of Europe In their finan- cial transactions with their American neigh- bors as they are upon the ship owners of Great Britain for transportation facilities, and will continue to labor hnder these embarrassments until direct banking systems are established. The report of the committee hereto attached presents a simple and easy method of relief nnd the enactment of the measure recom- mended will, m the judgment of the confer- ence, result in the establishment of proper facilities for Inter-American banking, Respectfully submitted, JAMKSO.
