H. nry Tivmanu s Sons, who handle

ceived a carload of meat from the
Bouse Monday, and had expected an-
other in today. but it failed to come
for some unknown reason. The whole
mle dealers sa that there is a scar
city ot good cattle in this section ot
the country and that since the strik
has been declared the local butchers
have killed most of the desirable cattle

be left before kmg will be a poof

The retailers Will have to be content

advance Is looked for on pork. Thi
packers base the statement thai then

not feed their cattle corn this time oi

that the only material advance mad.

Campbell's island was in possession
of redskins last night, but the main
feature of the celebration to commem
orate the historical battle that took
place there yo years ago fizzled out
owing to the overturning of the ini
pro vised ship that the Indians were to
attack and set fire to as it neared the
shore. The combustibles wore spilled
in the water before they were touched
off. but there was enough fireworks
retained on shore to make the island
ring with the muse of battle.
There were fully three thousand peo
ple at the island. King Philip tribe.
Independent Order of Kedmen. of Mo
line, is holding its annual encampment
there. Yesterday was the day set for
the big event of the week. The Red
men are holding forth in tents at the
south portion os the island They
were all in their blankets, paint and
feathers last night.
The battle between Gen. Campbell's
forces ami the Indians is believed to
have occurred in the center of the isl
and on the north side. There were
three boats in the general's fleet. His
boat was in the rear. The two pre
ceding had exchanged lire with the
Indians, but when Campbell neared
the line of redskins the wind veered
his craft in towards the shore, where
it was beached, and set on fire by the
enemy. A number of his men were
killed and he was wounded and taken
prisoner. Ii was planned last night
to give as near a reproduction of the
':ghi of 90 years ago as possible. The
Improvised imitation of Gen. Camp
bell's craft was built at the Redmen
camp, where it was loaded down with
BOmbUStlbles. It was placed In the
witter to be floated to the point where
it was to ho attacked by the Indians
and set on fire. For a short distance
it moved along as graceful as you
ulease. but when near to the wint
where the real trouble was to lake
place from some unknown cause, it
toppled over, and dumped the tire
vorks inlo I he river.
;'lierlN iilt- ;! 1Iiim.
The two boats following were
manned. I he crews on these bad
plenty of pyrotechnics with which to
attack the enemy while the generals
toat was being destroyed, and thes
were cut loose despite the accident.
and the people were made to believ
that the battle of Campbell's island
was fully as bloody as history relates
that it was. Later in the evening
there was a sham battle.
