To Buy or Condemn
That Was the Decision Reached
on the Water Question at the
the City Meeting Last Eveing.
The adjourned city meeting was held
in Armory hall last evening iinil after a
long debate tWo much discussed water
question was disposed of, as was also
the school question.
The first matter to comii before the
meeting was to hour the report of the
school commissioners regarding the lo
cation of a new school house.
lVrlcy Chandler stated that the com
missioners, after a careful study and
observation, had come to the con
clusion that a four-room school house
was very much needed at the north end,
that they considered the best location
obtainable was on or near the junction
of Main and Bhickwell streets. Hi
thought that to lay a good foundation,
have the rooms heated, well ventilated
ami in first-class sanitary condition a
building could lie erected at a cost of
between 8000 and 510,000. If a
building was erected near the junction
of Klaekwell and Alain streets it would
accommodate children, who reside on
Berlin streect, l'ostervillc, and New
Ireland. This would do away with the
church vestries which are now used for
E. W. Cumiiigs stated that the com
missioners had looked over the ground
very thoroughly and had carefully con
sidered all available property and that
somewhere in the vicinity named above
was the best jilaee. Js'ot one of the
locations met with all the conditions re
quired. They looked at a site near
Miles Meadow and ono on Woodchuck
Knoll. They also looked at a site near
Smith. Whitconib & Cook's, and one on
Berlin street and none ot these met the
requirements. lie did not tluiiK it
would pay to erect a school house ol
two rooms as a tour-rooiu school was
absolutely necessary to accommodate
the pupils in that vicinity. I he Norm
Barre and Summer street schools arc
over-crowded anil some have had to lie
removed to schools near the center of
the city for that reason.
V. A. Bovce said he was not in favir
of a site near the junction of Main and
Blaekwell streets as it, was near the
electric cars and foundry and for this
i-onann it vvjia not suitable. He t lOUirht

John Tierney moved the eoinissioners
report to bo accepted and the motion
was seconded and passed.
Mayor Cordon moved that it be a
four roomed school house and it was
seconded and passed, Mr. (iordon also
moved tnat the commissioners bo in
structed to select and buy a site near the
vicinity of Main and Blaekwell streets.
The motion was seconded and passed.
Article third of the warning was dis
missed. The council was authorized to
pledge the credit of the city for a school
As no person had anything to say
about a sewer on the west side, articles
five, six and seven were dismissed.
The next article in the warning was
to decide whet her the city would buy or
condemn the plant of the Barre ater
Company. W hen the article was read
Abraham Mann moved that the meeting
adjourn which was seconded. Ihe mo
tion was Hit and lost.
Mayor (iordon then told of what
happened a year ago when the city con
templated the purchase of Barre Water
Works. He said the committee who had
Ihe matter in charge, could not get any
figures on the. spring water companies,
and would not give out any information
concerning their plants.
W. A. lioyco then made a few re
marks and saiil that the mayor or com
mittee never came to Iqin with the idea
of purchasing the McFarland & Boyco
E. W. Cuinings stated that he thought
tho city ought to deal fairly with ihe
Barre Water Company and buy the
plant if necessary.
S. 1). Allen said that the committee
called on Mr. Goodhue last year, and
he wanted $llO,000,for the plant which
lie considered an exorbitant price. He
said the water company could lake care
of themselves. He thought a new plant
would cost about jji'JU.OOO.
Geo. C. Mackie and Alex. Stephens
thought the East Barre water iiclier
than the present supply, as it was much
superior for manufacturing purposes,
there was more pressure. At present
they arc obligedto use pumps to get the
"liter into Uieir uoiiers.
John McDonald stated that it was a
bad policy to tear up the streets ail the
whole time to let these private compa
nies lav pipes and make connections.
lie was in favor of condemning the wa
ter of tho Barre Water Company and let
the city derive the benefit.
E. i.. Smith said he was in favor of
having better water and was in favor of
having new water works, provided the
city ei.iilu buy or condemn the isarre
John McDonald made a motion that
the cily buy or cendenm Ihe Barre Wa
ter Works and it passed. And articles
two, three, live and six were dismissed.
Mayor J. V. Gordon moved that they
bring the waicr of Marl in Brook into
the cily and it was carried.
The city council was authorized to
pledge the credit of tho' city temporarily
for what wili be necessary to carry on
ihe work, and it was carried. The meet,

SPAIN WILL PERSUE WAR TO THE
BITTER END. ?.
Great Battle Expected near Cuba.
Manila Will Not Surrender.
London, My .'t. A special from
Madrid says that the Spanish colonial
oflice received advices at the beginning
of the bombardment of Manila before
the cable was cut. These said that
the American sh'd's had r.ot yet reached
the town proper which is strongly pro
tected, and it was only the outlying ma
rine quartirs that suffered and these
were in flames. This section is consid
ered the unfortified portion of Manila.
A few shells had fallen into the Euro
pean town for some hours, several of
them striking and doing damage. The
batteries of acilidcl inflicted some dam
age upon the American fleet. It is an
nounced at Madrid that there is no idea
of surrender in ministerial circles, or
among the populace notwithstanding
the movement which is understood to he
on foot among some of the great pow
ers to advise Spain to sue for peace.
0:i the contrary the war will be pushed

One United Supreme Effort.
London. May 3. The Madrid dis
patches say that the Spanish authorities
intend to throw the whole naval strength
of Spain into one united and supreme
effort against the United Stat"s. An
extraordinary cabinet meeting was con
voked last night and there was a long
session which occasioned the most in
tense excitement among Ihe people as
this was regarded as a great crisis in
the government of Spain. The crisis
was avoided however and the govern
ment will continue as it is now consti

Restoring the Cable.
Pahis, May 3, It is reported here
an American war-ship has cut the Man

restore the communication which has
been interrupted for several days. If
Ihis is done, the United States authori
ties at Washington will very soon be
informed of the real facts in the case of
the battle of Cavite. All reports thus
far received have been from Spanish
sources and these, no doubt, have been
far from correct.
Squadron Leaves Havana.
Mam-id, May 3. An official dispatch
from Havana says that the entire Amer

sailed in the direction of Key West. No
cause can be conjectured fr this move
unless it has been caused by some unex
pected information in regard to the
movement.s or intentions of the Spanish
fleet. There is a possibility also that
the Oregon may be iu danger, or the
Spanish fleet is coming towards the

Tho Old Sailor's Yarn.
"Yes," said the old fellow who pro
fessed to havo been a sailor and who
hitched bis uumeutiuintblcs and rolled
in his walk that he might look tho part,
"1 was marooned onot.
"It's a solemn fack, gouts. Fur ton
years I lived alone 011 a South sea is
land. I wasn't jest deserted there, bat
the ship blowed up an I was the only
one what ever reached laud ag'in. I
floated on a spar to that there deserlate

it is to be louely, to have 110 feller beiu

ed a sea gull and traiued him so he
would mind like a dog."
Here a sympathetic listener piped the
old fellow up to grog, and he seemed ta
lose his bearings. "Teu times I writ
home," he went on, "and half a dozen
times I cabled."
"Why, you old fraud," iuterruptad
a fresh water sailor who had been tak
ing iu the narration, "if you could seud
letters and cablegrams, you weren't
marooned. What kind of a game is ihn i
you're giviu us?"
But the old salt was equal to the oc
casion. Over he tumbled on the floor,
he went through the outward symptoms
of a fit, had to be supplied with another
dose of restorative and when be came
to, looked about him in a dazed way.
"What hov I been sayin, gents?" he
asked faintly. "Ever since I was maroon
