BRIDGE TAX PROPOSITION DEFEATED.
Monday was a very quiet election day
in Alma no far as party contest, but a
very large vote was polled nevertheless,
otvie-ioned by the increased population
of the township. In the county a repub
lican pain is shown, although the oppo
sition pain cue supervisor over last year,
tho complexion of the board now being
eight republicans to thirteen democrats.
The republicans gained h supervisor in
kthany, but lost in Lmerson and rsorth
Shade. The vote on th court house re-
ulted in a majority of lG'.'O iu favor of
bonding the county for the loan, and
our Ithaca friends are naturally jubi
lant over the result, and wr 11 they may
e. They have worked hard aud faith
ful for the past few mouths and their
puccess under the circumstances is very
satisfactory to them. It is the will of
the people, "so mote it be." The voto
for the bridge tax to build a bridge
across Pino River at the foot of State-st
was lost, aud in that we see the onlr
cause to mourn over the total results of
the election. We earnestly believe that
those who voted against the tax voted
against their own interests and in the
end may see their mistake. The results
of the election will be found on another
page.

Dkah Folk :
Von are probably getting anxious to
hear from me, but this is the first
chance I have had to write you since we
started on this excursion the 1th of Jan
uary. Since that time I have had and
feu enough warfare. I wish I could
with this pencil explain what I have
went through with during the last
mouth, but it is of no use, I cannot.
Tlie. first day wan very warm and we
wete nut use to marching, nur we nyuea
ihuteen miles, carrying threo das'
atif 11s, blanket roll, gun and belt with
loo round ammunition, haversack ami
cai r-en or water, an weighing arxnu .j
or TO pounds We camped on a hill
that night, just lying down on the
ground with our blanket over us. IJ.v
fore we could get supper, which each
man had to cook for himself, we had to
go back about four miles and help the
wagon into camp lhu next morning
we started on the march before day
light. We had with us the 1th and 11th
Cavalry, a battery of five mountain
guns, six ambulance wagons aud four
teen wagons with rations, all the wagons
having four mulis each to draw them,
and there were ten mules carrying am-
mnition on their backs for the battery.
The Jt.th Kegiuif ut wad in our rear to
garrison tho towns as we too them.
rhe second day we came to the tirst
town on the lino of march. We arrived
at dark end found the place forsaken,
the natives having all left before we got
there. We camped there that night and
the next day the Second Iiattalion went
iround one way. and ours, the Third.
went along the shores of a lake called
Lumade Hay. It is the head waters of
the Pdig River and is quite a large lake
Well, w e marched along the shore, our
uisior wishing to get to the the next
town before the Second Battalion, and
we would have succeeded, only we had
to ford a numter of streams and came to
one that was too deep and had to build
floating bridge. Here is where we
ost our chance and the Second Battal
ion got to tne town nrsr, nau a iiveiy
scrap, lost two men and had two
wounded We were within hearing
distance, but when we got there the
niggers had thd leaving seven dead. W e
worked all night at this place unloading
supplies from the boats about one-half
miK-H out from shore, and the next day
wo marched twenty-two miles. That
night we camped iu the road aud in the
morning tho regiment was split up, part
going one way and tho rest another.
The roads from here were very rough,
over mountains ana ravines. ine rea
son we marched so far each day and so
fast was that the rebels were fleeing
ahead of u and we were hot after them,
They threw away everything that
bothered their progress and we got three
modern mounted mountain guns, which
they left behind, but they got away.
The next morning a few of them made a
6tand across one of the ravines. They
held a strong place against us, but the
advance guards drove them away after
killing three niggers. They were lying
bv the road with their Mauser rifles
when the column marched by. Well,
darkness stopped the chase and the neit
morning we marched into another town,
had a little tight, captured fifteen rifles
of different makes and marched on af
ter leaving the 40th to garrison, to an
other town, gettirg there at night and
with only a few shots capture the
place and three thousand rounds of am
munition. The next day we marched to
another town called Alphonso.but went
on two miles farther to camp, iwo
companies went to take a town a few
miles to our right and companies u ana
K kept on tho next morning to another
one. intending to meet again two days
later at Alphooso. W ell we started on
our march expecting to meet lots of the
rebels. About ten o'clock we came up
on an outpost, captured the sentry and
about fifteen minutes later (I was with
the advance guard this day ) we ran up
against about ".'Vi of the Mack devils.
Wo saw them and were deploying when
they opened fire on us. They were in
trees and bushes but we had them going
in about five minutes and drove them
about two miles. If their aim was as
good as the Americans we might have
salTered quite a loss, but as it was, not a
man was hurt. Their loss was about
twenty killed, and we captured a col
onel, six privates and fifteen Mausers.
After this skirmish we started on our
march and when about a mile from tho
town, ran into another bunch of atout
fifty, but drove them out easy by firing a
few fchots. They ran and we marched
into town without doing any more fir
ing The town was surrendered by
about twenty friendlies who came to
meet us with white flags. That night
Co. K was out scouting, when we were
told that the town was going to be at
tacked by about 1..VX) reikis. We im
mediately sent for Co. K, they arriving
about 11 o'clock. About two o'clock the
rebels made a small attack, but the
niirht beimr bright they were afraid to
do Tery much of it. Any person would
think to read this, thaMt was easy and
lets of fun, but after marching all day,
up and down hill, and at night so tired
nnd hungry, and so sleepy one could
drop down anywhere and s'eep, yet at
night have to go on guard, I tell you it
is awful, and the next morning march
again for 0 miles or more. It is fun
sometimes when wo get after the nig
errs and see the white flags run out
when we go Into 'a town or strike an
orange grove where there is lots of ripe
fryt.
