Went Out to (lie l.riiunil.
The pomp that marks the dominion
of the Idea military has not yei put in
an appearance at Camp Ramsey. Per
haps that accounts for the compara- |
tlve hick ef Interest on the part of
those members of the fair sex who
have rot relatives in the Fifteen:h
Minnesota in the doings at the camp.
Not more than 2,000 people all told
visited the camp yesterday. If, instead
of 1,260 brawny young men in the neg
ligee of the camp, civilian negligee at
that, there bad been as many youths
• i in the habilaments of war under
the canvas at the fair grounds yester
day, tin re would have been many
more nickels in the cash box of the
Btreet car company to Jay.
Tiu' sights about the company
streets were not particularly inspir
ing and not at all suggestive of a Ufa
of glory. The boys were getting their
Bhare of the dull side of a soldier's lit o,
a foretaste of what is to come when
there will be no dress parade and only
a struggle for existence in the marshes
of Cuba. The men were naturally de
pressed. Even the work of the camp,
the routine of drill, work and more
drill that helps to dissipate the ennui
of everyday life was suspended, and
the men just lay around in their tents
and speculated on when the uniforms
would come and when they would be
cent to the front.
About the former there is not much
room for speculation. It depends en
tirely on when the muster is complet
ed. As to the latter, some of the men
and officers had been reading about
the possibilities of peace and were
somewhat gloomy over the probability
of seeing nothing of service other than
to do garrison duty somewhere in the
tropics as a part of the army of oc
cupation — which is not what they vol
unteered for. One especially hopeful,
"I Bee our finish: we'll have to gr>
down to Cuba and fight the Insur
gents. If it wasn't for the certainty
of the necessity for their getting a
licking we'd have no chance at all."
When life at the camp was at its
brightest when every officer's tent had
its quota of guests and every recruit
was looking for pome familiar face in
the crowds that peered into the tents,
Gov. Clough arrived and fixed a little
matter that had been overlooked.
In the appointment of the majors
there had been no indication of senior
ity. Both the commissions had bec-n
issued on the same day, and it was
a matter of some importance aa^ to
who had precedence, Maj. Gotzian" or
Maj. Hand. In case of Col. Shandrew
Tir-coining a brigadier and Lieut. Col.
1. onhauser getting his colonelcy, there
would be doubt as to the ranking of
ficer. The governor fixed that. He in
dicated officially that Maj. Gotzian was
the ranking major.
He did some:hing else. He reappolnt
ed Capt. C. B. Bond, of Minneapolis, to
the command of Company I. By ap
pointment there are two captains of
"'■nipar.y I, but neither one of them
hat- qualified as yet. Cant. Bond put
in an appearance yesterday and took
nmand of the company. He was ap
pobttcd to she command when the regi ■
tnent was called out. He did not ac
cept the appointment. Mrs. Bond ob
jected. Capt. Bond is a lawyer and
he lives in Minneapolis. He was in the
regular army from 1881 to 1887, and
served en the frontier. He carries a
bullet about in his hide as a souvenir
of a ."-ampaign he male under Miles in
Company I, Fif;h IT. S. infantry. When
he left the regular organization and
settled In Minneapolis, he went into
the militia and was again in the First
regiment, M. N. G. So he was rathjr
pleased to find himself appointed to
t!:e command of Company I, of the Fl°
\Frs. 80-rtd wasn't pleased. She had
relatives in the army and she did not
like the idea of her husband going. She
protested so effectively that Capt. Bond
vi.l nr.'t accept the commission, and
c ipt. Van Cleve got it. The latter was
turned down in the physical examina
tion Saturday, and when Capt. Bond
heard of this he determined that he
must go to th j frost. The result was
•that he was Bent for yesterday by Gov.
Clough, and again put in command of
But the end Is not yet. It Is regl
n.eirtal gossip that when Van Cleve
was rejected on the physical examina
tlon he went into St. Paul and ha-1
himself examined by a whole board of
physicians, who pronounced h'm souni.
Ho makes the contention that he is
physically til and wants his command.
He was not at tho camp yesterday and
just what he will do about the matter
1h not clear. The commission of Capt.
Eond will rti.sue this morning.
Vhi]p th^ governor was on the
around yeeterday, he assured Col.
Shandrew that he would issue trans
portation fur all the men it was
thought necessary to bring Into camp
to fill the reeiment. The transporta
tion will be Ipsued to a lot of a half
<!• zon or so in any town where they
may bo gotten together. The order was

men they had on hand, on account of j
physical disqua'ificatlon. The men who
are taken to the camp, and who volun
teer in good faith, will be sent back to
the point from whence they come, if
they fail to qualify.
Capt. Brandt, of Company F, got his
98 recruits out yesterday morning for
physical examination. The company
comes from Polk county, and looked
like a stout lot of fellows, yet 15 of the
98 failed to pass the rigid examination.
As soon aa the result was announced
Oa.pt. Brandt telegraphed Mayor
Thompson, of Iv.ist Grand Forks, and
a reply was received from the mayor
that he would send on 40 men at once.
They may be here to-morrow morning.
The examination of Company E was
finished. Of 127 men examined 107 pass
ed, and the company will be mustered
in at once. The examinations have
been, and will be, very rigid as to the
age and stature requirements, and this
accounts for the considerable percent
age of disqualications.
Company I will be examined this aft
ernoon. There will undoubtedly be
enough recruits in the company to fill
in spite of losses by physical disability.
There were 112 men in camp yesterday,
and there will be forty more recruits
for the company from Le Sueur today.
Lieut. T.nnoy, of Company X, will go
over to .Minneapolis this morning "and
recruit 20 men. There are 107 now in
the company, but it is calculated that
a score more will be necessary to fill
Capt. Dolan. of Worthington, has 118
men in his bunch of recruits. They are
generally country boys, and a "huisky"
looking lot. The captain expects to
have a few recruits left over after the
physical examination is gone through.
Nearly all of the visitors in camp
yesterday remained for guard mount,
the detail being furnished from Com
pany K. The men turned out like old
hands. Danz's band furnished the mu
sic, and the onlookers applauded with
a vigor calculated to stimulate the m»n
to greater exertions in learning the

MILWAUKEE, July 10.— The supreme court
of the United Order of Foresters, in conven
tion today, elected the following ticket: Su
preme chief ranger, William Sto'.tz, Chi
cago: past supreme chief ranger, Thecdore
Woerland, oT Chicago; supreme secretary, S.
A. Granger, Milwaukee; supreme vice chief
ranger. A. O. Wright, Madison; supreme
treasurer, Ernest Thwaltes, Chicago; supreme
councilor, E. W. Chapin, Madison.
A lively row resulted over the attempt of
the Chicago delegates to take matters into
their own hands, shutting all other delegates
out of office, because their courts were in
debted to the suprme court. In this action
they are upheld by the constitution. As a
result a disruption In the order is looked for.
VANCOUVER. B. C, July 10.— Yesterday's
provincial elections was the closest one In the '
history of the province. 11. turns reeMved up
to noon today show that neither the govern
ment nor the opposition had secured a work-
Ing majority. Several outlying precincts have
not been heard from. Under the most favor
able circumstances it will not have a ma
jority of more than four. The opp .s.tien c'a m
a majority of two and possibly three.
Two independent candidates, who, during
the campaign adopted a platform pr&rtleally
opposed to the governmtnt, were elected. It
is expected that the government will make
overtures to secure these votes, offering one
of them a seat in the cabinet.

DEAD LINE IS AT LYTLE
GEN. BROOKE'S RECENT ORDER
Quiet Sunday for the Men at Camp
TlioiiiiiK Prayers Offered for
Pence In All the Reginientii in
Accordance With the Terms of
the President's Proclamation—
News of the Camp.
CHATTANOOGA, Term., July 10.—
The beneficial effect of Gen. Brooke's
recent order limiting the number of
men to be allowed permits to leave
camp at one time to two from each
company was noticeable today in the
orderly quiet of the day both at the
camp and in the city of -Chattanooga.
A provost guaid did duty at Lyti-j,
and saloons and disorderly places were
kept closed. No soldiers were allowed
at Lytle without passes, and as a
consequence it was a sure enough Sun
day in the big camp.
All the saloons in Chattanooga,
which for the past two Sundays have
been wide open, were today closed by
order of the city authorities, so that
the day was peaceful, although the
streets were crowded a large portion
of the day with soldiers.
The dead line has been placed at
the depot at Lytle. The guards now
have their guns loaded and any soldier
passing this line without a pass Is to
bo shot, according to military rules.
This ciead line is a dreaded terror to
the soldier. Very few ventured within
a hundred yards of the line without
a pass issued by their colonel and
division officers. Many of the soldiers
go below Lytle three miles and get on
the train. The soldiers are spending
their money freely and as over $1,500,
--000 has already been issued 'them Chat
tanooga is reaping a harvest not known
since ''boom days."
The new regimental postoffice is now
in splendid working order, and ovar
25,000 papers go through the hands of
the twenty-five clerks in one day.
There are now two distinct postofflce3
— the Lytle t>ostoffice and the regi
mental postoffice. However, there are
thiee different services. If a soldier
dees not want his mail to come with
the regimental mail to the camp it will
be delivered to him from the regimental
postoffice. All day yesterday and to
day the corridor of the postoface at
Camp Thomas was jammed with sol
diers, who were lined up in front of the
money-order window sending money
Services were held In the twenty
two Christian commission tents now
in operation in the camp, and the
proclamation of President McKlnley
suggesting that prayers for peace be
offered by all ministers was observ
ed. From every pulpit in Chattanooga
today prayers for peace and the tri
umph of the American army were of
fered by the pastors.
Masses were said by Catholic clergy
men during the day at the park. The
three Catholic priests who arrived
this morning are Rev. McCarthy, Rev.
Belford and Father Chrostom, the lat
ter having been engaged in work for
many years in the West Indies. These
three ministers will remain with the
army and go with them to the front
when they are moved.
The First Ohio cavalry received the
last of its needed equipments today,
and it will move to Tampa early Tues
day, marching to Ringgold, where it
Gen. H. V. Boynton, who arrived yes
terday, has not yet reported for duty,
having some business connected with

ers to attend before he is ready to go
into active service. He will be as
signed to the coram md of the Third

being the only brig-ade in that corps
now without a brigadier in command.

"The best-paying and most valuable Iron
mine in North Carolina," said one of the
geologists oif the geological survey, "was
discovered by lightning. It came about in
this was: A gentleman who owned a large
farm picked out one of the prettiest cliffs or
small hills en It as the site for a residence.
It was very nicely situated, e'.oplng from ali
sides, and besides had a fine spring of water
very near it. The water was first tested and
proved to be nearly pure, though it had a
trace of iron In it, not enough, however, to
interfere to any great entent with Its taste
There were four large and finely shaped trees
on the hill, the locations of which were such
that the house was built among them, a
tree being at each corner of the house. The
first 3torm that came up after the house was
occupied was a severe one, and the lightning
seemed to linger around there in preference
to spreading through the valley. The fol
lowing storm was equally familiar, and at
its conclusion the large gum tree, the largest
and handsomest of the four around the house,
was found to be lying on the ground, having
been struck by lightning. In less than a
year the other tre&3 met the same fate, and
when they were gone the lightning destroyed
the barns, corn houses, tobacco houses an<l
other outbuildings. So far, however, the resi
dence was not struck, but the owner moved
out and deserted it. In one month after
ward the corner of the house was knocked off
during a storm.
"The fatalities connected with the house,
coupled with the prominence of its owner!
were made the subject of an article In the
local paper. This found its way into Pitts
burg and other papers. A prospector who
is now one of the owners of the iron mine
happened to £c c It, and it was not long be
fore he wad on the ground. He was satis
fied from the first that there were reasons
why the lightning played such havoc with
that particular property, and that a bed of
iron thereabouts was the attraction. Without
making public his reasons he began nego
tiations for the purchase of the hill and sur
rounding land, and he was able to secure the
same for about his own price. In leas than
six weeks he located the iron anj examined
to some extent its quantity, which lie found
to be enormous. Then ho capitalized the in
vestment in Pittsburg and elsewhere, and in
less than a year he had an iron mine in full
operation. It paid from the first day and has
been steadily paying for over twelve years.
The hill on which the residence was located
turned out to be. after ten feet of the dirt wai
removed therefrom, a mass of Iron.
"The whole coat of the outfk, including
the cost of the land, was not over $45 000
and over $150,000 worth of iron has been
sent from there every year since, with no
telling how long the supply will con'lnue.
Thia Is not the only instance in Iron mining
where lighning identified the mine. The sur
prising thing to me is that the residence stood
as long as it did, with such an attraction
for lightning Immediately under it."

LONDON, July 11.— A special from
Madrid says: "All talk of peace seems,
up to the present, to have led to no
tangible results. No d.oubt the govern
ment would welcome an opportunity
to negotiate with the United States,
v/ere the signs favorable, but there are
so many circumstances to be consid
ered that it looks as though the poli
cy of dissent and waiting for some
thing to turn up would continue until
Santiago has fallen.
"The tail of Santiago will convince
the. most sanguine of the hopelessness
of the struggle, and will give the gov
ernment the desired opportunity at
least to suggest an armistice for the
decision of terms. Circumstantial
statements are already in circulation
to the effect that the war is virtually
ended, and that the government has
actually opened peace negotiations,
but they cannot be verified.
"A detailed account has been pub
lished of Spain's navy losses—twenty
one warships and twenty-one mer
chantmen, as against practically no
losses on the American side. This
tends to convince the most rabid war
advocate, and, as for a long time past,
the whole commercial and industrial
interests of Spain are bringing strong
influence to bear In favor of peace.
"Every day that passes without dis
turbances strengthens the peace par
ty. It is believed, however, that there*
is a strong undercurrent in favor of
continuing the war, and the attitude
of the Carlists and Republicans causes
"The whole of Admiral Camara's
squadron, with the exception of the
Pelayo and San Augustln, which are
waiting at Port Said for a transfer of
coal, is now en route for Spain."
Tlie press of all the continental cities
is most actively discussing 'the propects
of peace, gives various rumcrs to the
general effect that the negotiations are
el! to very little pro-fit.
The Russian papers are very bitter
against the United States. The St.
Ptersburg Novostl characterizes the
destruction of Admiral Cervcra's fleet
as brutal slaughter, and accuses the
Americans of employing "some kind of
new explosive machine or bomfo, con
trary to international law."
The Rome correspondent of the Daily
Mail, recording the interchange of
views between the Vatican and Madrid
with a view of urging the queen re
gent in the direction of peace says:
"The action of the Vatican has be-anj
very cautious, in order to avoid dis
pleasing the United States."
The Madrid correspondent of the
Times, commenting on the growth of
the peace sentiment, says: "Facts
have begun to be recognized and cal
culations are published, showing the !
losses of each of the warring parties.
The statistics dispel- all illusions and
provo that the final result oannot be
doubted. The only question remaining

opening peace negotiations."
