VOL. VII.
LATEST WAR NEWS.
It is now pretty well settled thatCervera
with his fleet is in the harbor of Santiago
de Cuba, and it is asserted that the plans J
are for Schily to bold Ceivera at Santiago |
and for Sampson to bombard Havana
whileMdes attacks the city in the rear.
Thirty transports were loading at Tampa
yesterday, which indicates that the inva?
sion of Cuba is about to begin.
CAIX KOK TROOPS.
Yesterday, the 25th instant, President
McKinley issued a proclamation for 75,
000 more volunteers. I nder the call Vir?
ginia will have to furnish 1,673 more.
On yesterday the first American army
that ever sailed for a foreign country left
San Francisco for Manila. About 2,500
men sailed on the three transports, the
Australia, the City of Pekin and the City
of Sidney.
Caught in a Trap.
Key West, Fla., May 25.?A great game
is being played, and the situation is one of |
/dispense. After Admiral Cervera is seal
"V op in Santiago harbor the problem
will be, as in the case of a "varmint"
caught in a trap, whether to shoot or
Starve him. In any event Admiral Cer-1
vera, it is believed, cannot reach Havana.
Two powerful Meets, each having fast ves?
sels, as well as heavy ones, and each be-11
ing able to destroy him, are closing in up- j
on him. Naval officers here believe that
the battleship Oregon will be ordered to
join Rear Admiral Sampson's lleet.
A FURIOUS BATTLE.
One Reported to Have Occurred on Cuba's
Northern Coast.
Port an Prince, Hayti, May 23.?The
following dispatch has been received from
Port de Prix, dated Saturday last, tele?
graphed communication having been in?
terrupted up to to-day:
"A furious cannonading was heard on
the 19th, Thursday last, in the direction
of the north of Cuba. To-day, Saturday,
the cannonading continues in a very lively
fashion."
\Fort de Prix is in the northwestern part
oi oayti and the Firiug referred to may
have been from any part of the eastern ex?
tremity of Cuba. As the Spaniards claim
Gauntanamo was recently bombarded by
American warships the sound of tiring may
have come from that direction.
CUBANS WERE WINNERS.
They Repulse a Force of Spanish Cavalry
and Force Them to Retreat.
New York, May 23.?A Kew West spe?
cial says: The Cubans are fighting their
way to the coast, where they will join with
our forces of invasion.
Three hundred Cubans engaged a squad
of Spanish cavalry on Thuisday fifteen |<
miles west of Mantanzas. The battle was
fiercely waged in sight of the sl.ij s of the
blockade station.
Tbe filing continued after rintk, and
Friday morning the Spanish cavalry,which
had been reinforced during the night by a
battalion of infantry, were seen retreating )
along the beach in the direction of Havana. |
FRANCE CLEAR OF SPAIN.
The Government Aroused by the Feel?
ing in America.
Paris, M ty 22.?Clear evidence is now
being oll< i I of a ministerial desire to re?
move the bad impression created in the J
United States by the offensive hostilities
manifested by certain Paris journals over|
the Spanish war.
M. lianotaux is resolved to maintain
rigid neutrality and will participate in no
intervention without lirst ascertaining
whether tbe proposed conditions are ac?
ceptable at Washington. Further testi?
mony of French ollicial feeling is furnished
by an editorial in to-night's Temps em?
phatically protesting against the alleged
misunderstanding between France and
America, attributing the hostility shown
here to a few boulevard journals whose
sympathy for Spain as the weaker party is
doubtless felt, but Frenchmen would be
glad to see Cuba free; and the French
Government has done and will do every?
thing to safeguard its entente cordiale with j
the great republic over the sea.
The French-American lriendship,Temps
says, dates from the never to-be-forgotten
days of Washington and Lafayette, and
the historic past of both countries in a
Vjneasure determines their relations in the
' future.
ALLEGED SPIES AT FORT MONROE.
Two Men Detained and Plans Found on
One of Them.
Newport News. Ya., May 22.?It is said
that two men were arrested as spies yes?
terday at Fort Monroe. The men were
found within the reservation just outside
the fort on the boulevard near the resi?
dence of "Fighting Bob" Evans, of the
Iowa, where acombined lookout and rapid
fire emplacement is being ertcted. By
saying they had business with some of the
residents within the lines the two men se?
cured passes and were admitted by the J
guards. They had been within the iines
but a short time when a watchman decided
that the men were too much interested in
thewoik that was being done, and ar?
rested both of them. They were searched,
and crude plans were found on one of |
them.
The Best Remedy for Rheumatism.
From the Fairhaven (N. \\ Register:
Mr. James Row land,of this village, states
that for twenty-five years his wife has been
a sufferer from rheumatism. A few nights
ago she was in such pain that she was
nearly crazy. ?>he sent Mr. Kowland for
the doctor, bat he had read of Chamber?
lain's Pain Balm and instead of going for
the physician he went to the store and se?
cured a bottle of it. His wife did not ap?
prove of Mr. Rowland's purchase at first,
. but nevertheless appliel the Balm thor?
oughly and in an hour's time was able to
go to sleep. She now applies*it whenever
she feels an ache or a pain and finds that
it alwavs gives relief. He says that no
medicine which i-he had used ever did her
as much good. The 25 and 50 cent sizes

CHARLESTON OFF TO MANILA.
Big Cruiser Given a Tremendous Ovation
i as She Leaves American Shores.
San Francisco, May 22.?The Charles?
ton left her moorings at the navy yard
this morning anil is now started on her
way to the Philippines. Last night she
ran into a fog bank and was compelled to
wait in the stream until the morning
breeze made navigation safe. Thousands
went out to the heads to see her pass ami
to give her a farewell.
Every steamer in the harbor blew her
whistle and there was a tremendous loar
of cheers from the soldiers gathered at
the Presidio. They are soon to go to the
Philippines, and as the Charleston passed
out they lined the beach for a mile and
hurrahed as long as she was within hear?
ing. The warships responded with deaf?
ening blasts from her huge siren. The
forts did not salute as the Charleston
went out of the harbor.
r
significance of .montkkky's tkhv
The report that the Monterey has been
ordered to Manila has raised a good deal
of comment, for she is not by any means
a sea-going craft, and such a trip would
be a long and a hard oue for her. She
would have to carry a deckload of coal to
bring her to Honolulu, even uuder slow
speed. The run to Manila from Honolulu
would compel her to coal at sea unless the
iwkard expedient of having her towed
were adopted.
She can be made ready in four days.
Most of this time would be taken up in
lilling her bunkers and stowing a deck
load of coal and in the filluig of her store?
rooms.
It was announced in Eastern despatches
tome days ago that strong influence was
jrought to bear on the Administration, to
:iave the Montery sent to the Philippines,
is it is dobtful if the Government would
sver bring her back, and it would be a
tacit notification to the powers that the
L'nited States bad decided to hokl the
slauds as her own. This view of the case
las taken a firm hold here, where the
monitor is known and her capabilities are
amiliar to all.
Her longest trip was to Callao, but on
:hat occasion she carried deckloads of
?oal from port to port and she was never
more than a few miles from land. Should
she get out there, however, Dewey will
ieed no more fighting craft, for the offi?
cers of the monitor are confident they
?ould run the Monterey against anything
;bat floats.
AT CHICKAMAUGA.
There Are Now 36,000 Volunteers in the
Camp.
Chickamauga National Park, May 2-1.
?There are now 30,000 men in the volun
:eer army under the tents at this point and
.lie officers of the army expect that by
Saturday night there will be 44,000.
The Third Tennessee Regiment, the first
listinetively Southern troops to reach the
I'ark, arrived today under the command
A Col. J. P. Duff', 1,005 officers and men.
The day at the Park was unmarked by
my incident except the battle drill of the
Irst division of the First Corps. The
movements were under command of Gen?
eral Wilson and the men were put through
:he exercises in a very thorough manner.
The regiments of the division have been in
samp long enough to have become some?
what inured to the climate as well as the
work and the manoeuvres were character
zed by great energy and remarkable pre?
cision.
General Breckinridge and staff today
continued the inspection of the divisions
:>f the First Corps in detail. He found
the hospital facilities still inadequate, but
fortunately there are very few sick and
these are being cared for at St. Vincent's.
Uosphal department will be in good con?
dition.
General Breckinridge today gave orders
for a sham battle for inspection tomorrow
morning.
COULD NOT BULLDOZE HIM.
Dewey Has a Tussle With a German Com?
mander at Manila.
New York, May 24.?A special dispatch,
from Manila says that the German consul
there triad to land provisions from a Ger?
man ship, but that Admiral Dewey refused
to permit it. The consul then declared,
according to the dispatch, that he would
force the landing under the protection of
two German cruisers and that when Ad?
miral Dewey threatened to fire upon the
cruisers the attempt to land the supplies
was abandoned.
Another dispatch asserts that Admiral
Montejo, commander of the Spanish squad?
ron destroyed by Admiral Dewey, is to be
court-martialed on the charge of coward?
ice. This dispatch alleges that the captain
of the Spanish revenue cutter Callao, more
recently captured by a boat of the United
States fleet as she was entering Manila
bay, is to be shot for not returning the fire
of t he Americans.
A Spanish 1 rick.
St. Pierre, Martinique, May 24, 0 p. m.
?The Spanish torpedo boat destroyer Ter?
ror is being coaled by the Spanish stamer
Alicante. The Alicante Iks at the mouth
of Fort de France harbor. It was all along
supposed that she was a hospital ship, but
there is now no doubt that she carries a
cargo of coal for the Spanish warships.
Her pretensions to be a hospital ship were
obviously put forward as a blind.
The United States consul has cautioned
the French officials of the port not to al?
low the Terror to take coal in excess of the
quantity necessary to carry the Terror to
the w?rest Spanish port.
It is reported that the Terror will leave
Martinique tomorrow. She is understood
to be in good condition.
Dewey Herd From.
Washington, May 24.?The Navy De?
partment today received a cablegram from
Admiral Dewey as follows:
"Manila, May 20, via Hong Kong, May
24.
"Secretary Navy, Washingfon.
"The situation unchanged. Strict block?
ade continued. Great scarcity \ rovisionE
in Manila. Foreign subjects fear an out?
break of the Spanish soldiers and they will
be transferred to Cavite by the foreign
men-of-war in the harbor. Agu'maldo.the
rebel commander-inchief.who was brought
here from Hong Kong, is organizing a
force of native cavalry and may render as?
sistance that will be valuable. Dkwey."
URGED TO AID AMERICA.
Masso Asks Autonomists to Kelp Strike
Decisive Blow at Spain.
Tampa, May 22.?The text of a procla?
mation issued by Bartolome Masso, presi?
dent of the Cuban Republic, has reached
here via New Orleans. In it Masso strongly
urges the autonomists, guerrillas and Cu?
bans leaning toward Spain to come over to
the Cuban ranks.
He assures them that, with the aid of
United States troops, a decisive blow to
Spain is soon to be struck and that the
Cuban cause will soon be won. He points
out that all who fail to join the Cuban
forces before it shall be too late must seek
a home in some other country.
GLADSTONE BURIAL.
The Great Commoner Will Be Interred in
Westminister Abbey.
London, May 22.?It was settled yester?
day at a conference between Herbert Glad?
stone, Arthur J. Balfour, tbe First Lord
of the Treasury, and tbe dean of Westmin?
ister, that the body of William Ewart
Gladstone should be buried in Statesman's
Corner, in Westminister Abbey.
The Des.n readily acceded to the request
of the Gladstone family, that Mrs. Glad?
stone should ultimately find a resting place
beside her illustrious husband.
Statesman's Corner is so crowded that
space remains sufficient for only two mon?
uments, and the place now set apart for
Gladstone's tomb, your correspondent was
informed by Dean Bradley today, was vir?
tually consecrated to that purpose by his
predecessor, Dean Stanley, a quarter of a
century since. The date of the public fu?
neral is still unsettled, but it is believed
that the necessary preparation for what
must assume the dimensions of a great na?
tional demonstration cannot be completed
for a fortnight at least. In the meantime
the body of the great commoner will lie in
Uawarden church.
Herbert Gladstone, expressing the views
of the family, is anxious that the burial
should take place about Thursday next at
the latest, and that the ceremonial should
be modified to meet that arrangement. As
the ministers naturally are desirous to de?
fer to the wishes of the family in every
way,probably ibis proposal will be adopted.
The family are also averse to having a pub?
lic procession fromjthe Euston Railway Sta?
tion to the Abbey, and desire that the
body be taken through the streets without
formality, the ceremony being reserved
for the interior of Westminister Abbey.
This scheme, if carried out, will cause
intense popular disappointment.

Commencement at Burke's Garden
Academy.
The commencement exercises of Burke'e
Garden Academy were held Thursday
night, the 19 instant, Friday, "the 20th, at
10 a. m., aud Friday night at 7 :I10 o'clock.
The exercises Thursday night consisted of
contests in declamation and recitation and
music. The prize in declamation?
"Youths Companion" for one year?was
won by Albert Suiter.of Bland county, and
was awarded in a neat speech by Mr. Chas.
P.Kelly. The prize in recitation?"Ladies
Home Journal" one year?was captured
by Miss Annie Moss, of the Garden, and
was awarded in a very humorous manner
by Kev. YV. II. Greever, of Bluetield.
Instrumental duets aud cbwruses by the
school were rendered at different stages of
the exercises. The choruses were well
trained, one \ number. The Whippoorwill
Song, accompanied with harps played by
Clint and Willie Moss and G. O. Thomp?
son, being especially complimented. A
scholarship for best attendance and high?
est class standing was then awarded to
Frank Forbes.
OKATORICAL CONTEST.
An oratorical contest took place on Fri?
day at 10 o'clock a. m. The contest was
quite an interesting one, all the speakers
acquitting themselves well. The medal
was won by Wm. G. Moss and was award?
ed by Prof. C. B. Cannady, of Koanoke
College Faculty. The address before the
school was then delivered by Prof. Canna?
dy. It was a most timely and excellent ad?
dress on the theme of modern education;
and the speaker was much applauded.
The audience was very appreciative, and
the earnest appeal in behalf of education
will not go unheeded. Prof. Cannady
made a very favorable impression on the
people of Burke's Garden in the short
time he remained. A talented member
of the Faculty of perhaps the best college
in the State, he impressed his hearers with
the fact that the college he represents has
a brilliant future in store for her in the
great cause of education; and that he,
himself, will be no unworthy member of
the class of people who "mould the men
who rule the world."
PLAY?OUK COUNTRY.
On Friday night the program consisted
of two plays, ''Our Country" and "The
Woman's National t). & R. Society," given
by the boys and girls of the school. It
seemed to have been much enjoyed by all,
and, considering that only two or three of
the hoys and girls had ever done anything
of the kind before, the entertainment was
very creditable.
The music on Friday and Friday night
was very enjoyable. On Friday "The
Erl King, arranged for organ-piano duo, '
was rendered in an excellent manner by
Misses Greever and Groseclose, teacbets in
the Academy. A vocal solo was beauti?
fully rendered by Miss Margaret Greever.
The other numbers^of the program were ,
tilled by Mr. Will Henry Alderson and 1
Miss Alice Alexander, of Tazewell. Taze
well people do not have to be told that ?
Mr. Alderson played exquisitely and that ,
Miss Alexander's accompaniments were, .

i perfect. It was a musical treat for Burke's
Garden. Tliey also furnished the music
for the entertainment Friday night.
1 The preparations for the exercises in the
way of curtains, carpet for stage, decora
1 tions of hunting, seating of rear of audi?
ence room with elevated seats &C, added
very much to the pleasure and success ot
the occasion.
The success of the session which has just
closed, both in the increased attendance
and the increased efficiency of
the work done in the school over last year
as well as the less significant success of the
closing exercises, is very gratifying to the
principal. Many improvements in the
grounds may be noticed since hist year
and other improvements are planned to be
made during the Summer. Burke's Gar?
den Academy takes rank with the best
secondary schools in the country.
A Treat in Store for Tazewell.
Hev. James A. Burrow, who has con?
sented to deliver the literary address at
the close of Tazewell High School (Friday,
June o) is one of the most promising mem?
bers of Holsten conference. For several
years he has been secretary of that body
at its annual sessions, being elected thereto
by unanimous vote at every electiou. His
mastery of English is pronounced by so
eminent authority as Doctor Hoss to be
perfect. But while he is a master of pure
English, he is by no means a dry-as-dust
platform speaker. On the contrary he has
a rich vein of chaste humor in all his
thought whether it be in social Konversa?
tion or platform deliverance.
The fastidious taste of Tazewell will be
fully met by this cultured gentleman.
We congratulate Prof. Byrom on having
secured such services for his school and
the community. It marks a long stride in
advance when the work of such a man
takes the place of the "exhibitions" once
so common at euch times.
The address of Mr. Burrow will be de?
livered in the Methodist church.
Postponed.
The time for holding the District Con?
ference at this place was the 16th of June,
next month. It has been determined to
change the date, and the time for holding
the conference will be announced later.
The reason for making the change is, that
a number of the preachers ami delegates
to the conference would come from tiie
Flat Top regions, against which the town
is closely quarantined, because of the large
amount of smallpox that is said to be in
the mining districts. After consulting with
the citizens of our community, Rev. I. P.
Martin concluded"" it was best to postpone
the meeting, and has so advised Rev. J.
Tyler Frazier, presiding elder. Due notice
will be given when another date is fixed.
According to the newspaper.-', an Ohio
husband became the happy father of seven
children not long ago. Of the seven all
lived but one. It is to be hoped he laid
in a supply of Chamberlain's Cough Rem?
edy, the only sure cure for croup, whoop?
ing-cough, colds and coughs, and so in
mired bis children against these dieeases.

Looking For
A Cold Place?
Yes, you will soon be looking after the com?
forts of "keeping cool." Speakingof ''keeping cool,"
do you know how important it is in the Summer
season to keep everything you eat in a cold place?
The laws of good health are directly opposed to
the use of foods that have been kept long in a
wann place, where insects, Hies, etc. have access.
Conditions of this kind are not conducive to
good health.
If you eat our foods, such as Strawberries,
Lemons, Apples, Oranges, Green Vegetables.
Cheese, Etc., you may be sure of always getting
healthful foods. Cheese especially is almost unfit
for use in Summer unless kept in a cold place.
Our perishable foods are most as healthful in Sum?
mer as Winter, because we keep them all in our
Cold Storage, only enough being brought out for
immediate use. Keeps fruits in a sound condition.
Prevents decay and makes vegetables crisp and
tender. Keeps lemons and oranges in their natu?
ral juicy and good-flavored condition. Think
over this.cold storage.

From the University of Virginia.
Literature has suffered a real loss in the
deatli of Professor M. Scheie de Vere,
which recently occurred in Washington.
For a half century he was a professor at
the University, and the alumni of the In?
stitution will learn of his death with sor?
row, lie was helpful as a teacher, of un?
usual literary capacity, and endeared to
all by bis kind and genial disposition,
until recent years he was a frequent con?
tributor to leading periodicals in this coun?
try and Europe, and the author of many
works of recognized value among educa?
tors.
Mr. .1. M. Brodnax, a graduate of
Princeton, and until recently a member of
the graduating class of Princeton Theolog?
ical Seminary, has been engaged as gen?
eral secretary of the Y. M. O.A. for the
next session. Mr. Brodnax has been at
the University for several months, and has
commended himself to the students and
protesors alike as an earnest, active, busi?
ness-like man, and the work will prosper
in his hands.
The newly appointed committee on Re?
ligious exercises for next session is com?
posed of Professors Perkinson, Lile and
Dunnington. This committee has charge
of all the religious exercises in the chapel.

with vocal solos, duets, quartettes, etc.
Saturday night, the 4th of June, has been
selected as the date for the concert. It
