News From Camp Olympia.
The boys arc much pleased that Capt.
Badger is til remain with us. It came
about in this way. j .repetition was cir
culated and sighed by every member
of the Company asking that he be in
stalled as Captain. This petition was
ser.t to Governor Grout. Another peti
tion was instituted at'j signed by all
the members of the Colonel's staff and
by the field officers who also recommend
ed him. All the pressure from those
diffiercnt sources was brought to bear
upon the Governor and much to the de
light of the Company and the rest of
the regiment Captain Jihdgcr was re
instated. Me is obliged however to
waive certain rights as to receiving any
injuiy from the hardships of camp lift;.

NEW DISHES FOIl COMPANY E.
A movement instituted by Capt. I). II.
Bisbee, who has just returned from
Camp Olympia. is on foot to to raise
enough money by subscription to pur
chase new agate plates, cups and batrs
to keep thorn in for t4 "je of the
boys of tfie Barre company .: Capt. Bis.
bee reports tht the tin plates now used
by the boys are very dangerous to their
health, as the tin is easily scraped from
the plate in cutting meat antl becomes
mixed with the food. The tin is very
poisonous. The plan is to have the la
dies of the city meet early, next week
anil make the bags. It will cost $25
to buy the plates and cups antl material
for the bags so that if 25 persons can
be found who will give $1 each, the
go0tl work will lie accomplished and
perhaps thereby the good health of our
Barre boys at the front can be preserved.
On the Corner.
All ilin 'iftprnnoii the " boss " looketl
for a place where this aggregation of
"kickers" could hold their regular
meeting. The Inspector followed on,
anxious to be. on lia'iu u any jinpiuuuu
matters were under debate. During the
several hours that the " Chief Cook "
was looking for a place, he tried to dotlge
the Inspector, but "I have been on earth
a few days" ami with the Hid of a good
wheel I made tpiick time. The first
application made by the Boss for a meet
in" place was at the engine house of the
Barre Railroad company, but too many
l,.,ve ii I read v asked the workmen
for lodging, ami so the Boss moved on.
The next stop was in the rear of Fred
Slayton's stable, but Fred thought his
horses ought to have a little sleep and
so he refused to allow the noisy hood
lums to pitch tents in his back yard.
Almost ready to give up the task, the
Boss decided to board the police antl
meet on the Corner once more, u ncij
offender was put in the cage for it, and
so in spite of the oniers oi i nu

in that one sided section ?" cried one
havseetl from the west side. "W e have

house." But the boys were not able to
settle the question of location nnd so the
imestion is still to be or not bo solved.

THE CIENFUEGOS BATTLE
Readp for Manila Expedition,
More of the Cienfuegos
Kev West, May 14. In the en
gagement off Cienfuegos last Wednes
day between the Marblehcad, the
Nashville, and several thousand Span
ish troops, one seaman named Reag in, 1
of the Marblehead, was killed, and
John Davis, of New York, and John
Doran, of Fall Iliver, both of the
Marblehead, were seriously wounded.
Many of the Spaniards are knowu to
have been killed and wounded. The
Americans wounded were brought here
.this morning. The night occurred
while the Americau vessels were try
ing to cut the cable between Cienfuegos
aud Santiago De Cuba. The fight
was terrific, but the Tessels succee led
in cutting the cable. The troops were
assembled aloogthe shore with masked
batteries so that the ships were ex
posed to a terrible fire during the
whole time the work was going on.
There has been cousiderab.e discussion
about this engagement since the first
news of it was received from Havana
last Thursday, and it has been the
common belief that it had been cou
fused with the battle of Cardenas, but
it is now known that the report from
Havana was in part, at least, au
thentic. A great work was accom
plished in putting the cable and the
Americans were very fortunate not
to have met with greater loss. Those
who were wouded are now in a very
dangerous condition and it is thought
they will not live.
Spaniards Lost Heavily.
Madwi, May 14. The Spanish
report from Manila admits that ttie
Spaniards lost 300 killed and 600
wounded when Dewey brouuht about
the annihilation of the Spanish fleet.
The Yankee's captured ami burned
all the merchant vessels. The Span
iards are insolated by the American
blockade and are in constant fear of
au immediate attack.
Another despatch dated May !)th
says that the Arsenal has, surrendered
antthat Cavitc has been evacuated by
the Spauish and that the Americans
suffered considerably. It says that an
officer on board the Olympia was kill
ed and that the Baltimore was seriously
damaged. The Spanish shells did not
burst while those of the Americans did.
Look-out for the Oregon.
Boston, May 14. The Herald this
afternoon says : " A despatch just re
ceived faom a Uio Janiero correspond
ent ; is worded in conventional and
appan ntly innocent language because
of the censorship. He announces the
fact that three Spanish warships have
been sighted off the Brazilian coast
near l'ernainbuco. It is believed they
are searching for the Oregon.
To Bombard New England.
London- May, 14. The Star says
tnal a despatch from Madrid via Paris
throws interesting light gathered from
official sources on the movements of
Admiral Cerveras in command of the
Spanish fleet since it left Cape Verde,
It appears ho was headed f r St. Pierre
when off the coast of Newfoundland ho
was met by Colliers from j Sydney with
coal and instructions to raid Portland,
Boston, and Newport :;and if Sampson
bomUudi:d Havana ft "lUiiwhlnr c'ff. "
The Manila news changed his plans.
The next move proposed was to decoy
Sampson to Porto Rico then sail rapidly
for Havana destroy the few ships left
there aud finally if he should learn that
the two squadrons were coming to meet
him thus leaving him sea free his plan
would be to sail straight for Charleston
and bombard it.
San Juan Slightly Damaged.
Madkid, May 14. A dispatch from
San .Tnaii says tho damage done to the
town is unimportant. The 'American
shells were aimed at a higher portion
of the town, passed over it and fell into
the bay. The enemy's bombardment
was very fierce.

Stories or Henry George.
The activity and power of intellect
of the late Ht ury George did not prevent
absentniindeduess. A writer in Ihe Re
view of Reviews says that this quality
was "the jest of bis circle."
Names escaped him. I heard him eaj
to Mr. Dayton, the candidate on hit
ticket for comptroller and one tf th
best known men in New York :
"You won't niind it, I hope, if I for
get your name. I am so conscious of the
danger of getting names wrong that
when the need of remembering comes it
rattles mo, and away the name goes."
He came late to a dinner at the Lotus
club, where he was to discuss with some
friends the question of his being a can
didate in apprehended contingencies. It
was raining, and he took from his pocket
tho slippers with which Mrs. Ceorge
had insisted on providing him in case
he should get his feet wet, nnd as he
put them on he apologized with honest
"I lost time looking for a man I kept
asking after as Kiusella, and it turned
out bis right name w as Moriarity. At
loast I think that was what be told mo
it was when I found him."
But there was no absentmindedness
when discussion of the business in hand
ensued ; ho was keen aud wide awake.
