Dissatisfaction Among Titos Who
Bought Drill rrlTlleges.
There U 'considerable complaint anionic
those who have paid for the different priv
ileges on the drill and camp grounds. The
lemonade man at the Drill Grounds claims
that the committee have not acted fairly
with htm, having permitted another party
to aell that cooling beverage. At the camp
there is even more trouble on the hands of
the committee. Thomas Kearns, the ca
terer of the big camp mess rooms, says that
he will lose heavily. lie Invested close on
to $20,000 tor this drill with the guarantee
from the commutes that not leas than 2,000
persons wou'd feed with blm each day.
It Is Impossible for the number to reach
anywhere near that figure now. On the
first day there were but about COO, and the
toaxtmum has been 1,200. So the commit
tee w 111 probably have tbe difference to pay,
or fight Mr. K earns In court, for bo says he
will sue for It, It he can get It no otber way.
The man w ho paid for tbe privilege of efi
log meat quit serving Thursday, as others
were allowed to compete with him. At the
Drill grounds tbo visiting soldiery aro com
plaining loudly of tbe rule made by tbe

thu taxes on land values and golog tu
heavily for Intirnal Improvements, roids,

Scones aad Incidents nt Camp Wash
logton To-dny,
Tho overcast heavens probably accounted
for the rather small attendance tbatgreited
tbe first Infantry company at tho Drill
grounds this morning. But after 10 o'clock
they began coming In a perfect stream,
and, before tho day was over, the grand
stands presented the gala appearance ot
tbo last few da j s.
company ii, rinsT v mat vu.
Tho first company to sppear was Com
pany II, First Virginia. Tbelr drlUIng
was very much below tho average, as was
that ot all tbe troops from "Old Vlrginoy."
Company B, bowevrr, was a slight Im
provement on their comrades ta arms.
Tbo rccond company was the Nealy
Rlflts, from way up In Maine. Tbe boys
who votefor James G. Blaine, however,
were as bad, It not worse, than tho Virginia
laddies, and really drilled so badly that tbo
spectators applauded them but for tiro
movements, and Iben spasmodically, as
though half Inclined not to Bad breaks
were made In some of tho simplest parts of
the rxanual.
They gave place when their halt hour
bad expired to tbe National Rides. As
tbey came up tbe greensward they certainly
made & pretty showing in their gay red
coats and bearskins. A generous burst ot
applause greeted tbem from the grand
stands. After stacking arms In a way
which brouebt forth considerable applause,
this good start made their admirers hope
for sorao unusually good work. But this
hope was soon dispelled by their evolu
tions. In which tbey were very uneven.
The most difficult points In the programme
laid out by the Judges they did remarkably
well, making bad errors when least ex
pected. Prom their work It would seem
that too much attention had been given to
a few difficult points and tbe more easy
evolutions neglected. Ibis Is not the fact,
however, as Captain Oyster has worked tbe
rutnot late conscientiously and with regu
larity.. .The applause, on tbe whole, was
rnlher tooccncrouilyglvan.astlie work did
not Justify It. If not taking a prize the
Rifles will not be disap pointed, however, as
there wero circumstances sickness ot men
crlnclDalh which brouebt out the declara
tion some days ago that all hopes fur draw
ing a prize wero abandoned. Lieutenant
Mansontommaudtd the Rifles.
Crmpany A, Fifth Minnesota, wtretbn
next contestants. Tbey were a neat-looking
body ot men and were away up In their
evolutions. In their double nulck move-
mens they broke slightly. The manual of
arms the) did finely.
lu some movements tbo Minnesota bojs
wero very floe Indeed, notably lylngdowu
atd firing, which they executed with raro
klll and accuracy, and they improved In o
m marked dLgree as the drill went oo, re
ceiving more apphuso than any other com
I ii$ who has competed mj fur to-day.
Frcmptly at 12 o'clock noon, Company A,
rifth Rhode Island, marched through the
tenth pate and drew ud In front of the
JudstV tent.
Ibcy hsve pretty bright uniforms of
white jackets aud blue troupers, with blue
ttlmets. In tbe manual ot arms tbey were
very good Indeed, aud their evolutions vv ere
by alt odds tho best seen to day, and tbelr
double quick was as good, It not better, Uuu
ary during tbe entire drill. 'J bla latter is a
mott difficult movement to perform with
ory degree of precision In rezard to step,
but the wblto coats of the Rhode Island
Lois rose and fell as the most exacting
cculd wish.
Immediately behind thorn came tho cadet
corps, who drew up lu lino at tbo far end of
the grounds for Inspection. The Inspection
was a rlsld one. Arms were examined criti
cally, and each little blemish marked down
against them. Tho first to com were tho
Peek skill Cadets, who were followed In turn
by the St. John's Academy Cadets, Bethel
Academy Cadets, Maryland Agricultural
College Cadets, Cayuga Lake Cadets, Mich
Igan Military Academy Cadets, and High
School Cadets. The cadet competition drills
began at 3 o'clock with tho Pceksktlls. At
2 30 the St. John's Cadets followed, and at
3 tho Bethels.
Company I, Second Michigan, was the
next on tbo field, and whllo tbey did fairly
well, their drilling was not such as to leave
tbem any chance for a prize. Tbelr execu
tion of tbe manual was tbe beet thing tbey
did, ibtlr cvo lutlons bclog quite uneven.
Tollowlng these came the Bullene Guards
of Kansas City, who made an excellent ap
pearance in very tatty costumes. Ihclr
drilling was very good, Indeed, and thd
kvdleuee quickly realized that tbe cow bovs
ut the West knew a thlngor two about drill
ing. Their suits are of plain gray, with
white helmets aud plumes.
Just as tbey were leaving tho grounds tho
rain came down quite hard aud caused a
stampede by the crowd for shelter under tho
grandstands. Tbe Kansas City boys got
qt,lto a good wetting, too, before tbey
reached camp,
Following came tbe Wooster City Guards
of Wooster, Oblo, who acquitted themselves
with credit, brlngiog out a good deal ot ap
plause from tbe spectators. Tho ralu
(topped before tbe Oblo men bad been en
the grtueds five minutes, and tho crowd
once moio occupied the drlvo-wai and left
the cover ot tbe stands.
Tbe last of tho Inrantry competitive drill
ing of tho day was done by tbo Fort Waj ue

days to visit Baltimore, Philadelphia and

at tho camp, Final orders aro being Issued
at headquarters, and tbero is not tbo hurry
and bustle hero which was noticeable lu
the early part of the weok,
Atll o'clock General Augur and his staff.
In full-dress uniform, were photographed In
front of headquarters by Mr. Prince, several
excellent negatives being obtained. At tbo
hospital there were only nine patients In the
tents, nono seriously 111,
Tbe storm and wind of yesterday had
torn tbe guy ropes from the tent pins In
many quarters, and created sad havoc with
tbo canvas. Sheets, blankets, caps and tbo
various paraphernalia of vamp-life wore
blown In ntl directions. The Governor's
Guard ot North Carolina suffered the most
damage, the San Antonio and Belknap
Rifles also being greatly Inconvenienced.
All tbo companlts located in tbe low ground

A pleasant episode In the camp this roorn
irg was tbe serenade rcrdcrcd to Captain
Allison Naltor ot tbe Washington Ll?bt In
fantry by the musical prodigies from Mil
waukee. After the music Captain Nsllor
Invited all the boys Into bis tent, making
his gracious acknowledgments and gave
tbem refreshments, presenting tbe leader
with a handsome bouquet and decorating
each boy w 1th a boutonniere.
Although the Toledo Cadets drilled with
precision and lo most superb form. It la said
by many of tbe leading captains In tbe
camp, who are old army officers, that they
drilled without any reference to the code of
military tactics, tbelr movements being exe
cuted In a studied, slow and clock like
manner, entirely out of tbe regulations pre
scribed by military manuals.
Tbo Red Cross Association hai erected
another portable barracks building adjoin
ing the dhpensary, where Mies Bartou will
make her headquarters.
Many of tbe captains hare their families
with them, who are stopping at tho hotels,
but make dally visits to the camp.
Mr. Eric M. Noble, tho stenographer of
General Augur and his stall, Is one of the
busiest men at headquarters. He Is very
obliging to the newspaper men, who are In
debted to blm for many courtesies.
Tbe Chicago Zouaves think tbey have cap
tured tbe prize, and preparations are al
ready being made in Chicago to give them a
grand ovation on their return.
In the hospital there Is a German soldier
ot one ot the Wt stem regiments. Ho has
not been seriously ill, and Is now ou the
road to recovery. Recreates considerable
amusement for tho attendant physicians by
his ludicrous mistakes and woeful lacera
tion of tbe Lugllsh language.
The Governor's Guard ot North Carolina

V by would It not he a good Idea for the
Drill management to glvo a special pro
gramme for Monday T Ibis being a National
bollday tbo entire city would turn out If an
attractive programme wero arranged. Tbe
proposed sbam battle ot all the troops In

novel programme, and would be witnessed
by at least JO.00O people. Tbo Government
authorities would probably have an artillery
battery, and a most Interesting entertain

A Ciehtic reporter enjoyed a dinner In
camp with tbe Indianapolis Light Infantry
boys and their lady friends, and found
them very genial and companionable. The
dinner of rice, potatoes, beef roast, onions,
bread and coffee, was eaten with a relish;
after which, through tho courtesy of Lieu
tenant Grajdon, latoot tho United States
Navy, omnibuses were provided to trans
port the entire company to tbo Navy
tard, where tbo afternoon was spent In

At four o'clock yesterday afternoon tbo
Individual drill began. Fit ty-nlno men took
