Aldermen, School Commissioners
To Hold a Meeting this Evening
to Settle School Question.
'PI !... c Ii . .
iue unj oi uarre seems to be wrap
ped m a heap of trouble. Xo decision
nat, a yet noon reached in the water
question, and now the school comniis
sioners are going to share the trouble
with the rest.
At the city meeting 4('ld about one
yveek ago it was voted to build a new
school house at the nirth end and
gave the school commissioners poyver
to select and buy a suitable site to lo
cate the building on. The motion des
ignated that it must be somewhere in
the vicinity of Main and Hlackvvell
The school commissioners met the
first of the week to talk the matter over,
after they had looked at a number of
available sites in the north part of the
city, They refused to give out any in
formation concerning the business
This morning it was learned on good
authority by an Evening Entehi-kisk
reporter that the commissioners had de
cided on the property at the corner of
Silver and Brook streets owned by
Mrs. Ann E. Bannister of Potsdam, X.
Y. ft is known that Perley Chandler,
president of the board of commissioners,
went to Potsdam last yveek and it is un
derstood that his mission was to consult
with Mrs. Bannister regarding the pur
chase of the property. She wanted $4000
for a portion of the property but the
commissioners think it is only worth
about one-quarter of that amount and
are not willing to pay that price. '
This evening there will be a meeting
of the board of aldermen and commis
sioners and it is understood they will
dissuss the having the property con.
demned, If this site is decided upon
it will certainly be a good location and
there will be room for a play ground in
the rear of the building.
News From Camp Olympia.
Thursday was a most gloomy day in
camp, it has been raining all day, and
the pleasant chats which usually take
place when the boys are lying in groups
upon the grass had tQke.,, suspended.
We are very fortunate in having floors
under the tents in such kind of weather
else yve might all be listed on the hos
pital roll-call. There has been no drill
since the rains began and it is really
very lonesome when this hard, but in
teresting, work is taken out of our
hands. The bovs all seem to cniov the
drill and the work does them good.
Most of the conversation in camp is
directed toward the prospects of our
coming departure. Nothing definite is
known vet. but the prevalent belief is
that we' shall move inside of ten days.
It has been said on good authority that
we shall move as soon as we are eepp
pcd. The way things are going now it
ill mviliHblv take ten davs before we
are ready, but if they hurry matters i,t

means beyond a doubt that we are to be
sent into Cuba and most of the boys are
pleased at the prospect.

There has been some talk about the

FLEET WAITING FOR
Cape Verde Fleet Sighted in
Flying Squadron Sails.
Fokt Monuo, Va.. May 12. The
Flyiug Squadron which has been wait
ing here for orders was ordered yester
day to sail immediately and the pre
parations were made for this departure
last night. Their destination is un
known, but it is possible that some of
yesterday's reports in regard to the
position of Spanish boats off the New
England coast may have something to
do with this silent move. .It is also a
plausible belie! that some more definite
news has been received from the Cape
Verde fleet. It will be well to notice
the fact that practically all reports ol
the whereabouts of the Cape Verde
fleet have come from Spanish sources
either directly or indirectly, and as
the Spanish authorities have absolute
control over all cable communications
it is not likely that the neyvspapers
have been given any very reliable in
formation iu regard to t lie movements
of the Spanish navy. The Cape Verde
fleet may show up at any point at
almost any time, but they will be very
shrewd if they should succeed in elud
ing the many wideawake scou:s who
are constantly scouring the approaches
to the American coast and are con
tinually on the alert to give warning
of any danger from the enemy.
