A largo crowd went from this city this
morning to hid good-bye lo the boys of
liarre who left this noon for C'hickamaua
The Montpelier b'viul rendered a num
ber of selections as the train stood in
tho depot. The boys were not permit
ted to leave the cars which numbered
10, and their friends had to speak to
them from the cur windows. When the
crowd went to the Junction they went
loaded down with fruit and eatable for
As the train pulled out of the depot
U was a sad sight nearly everybody had
tears in their eyes as the train went out
of sight. The liarre crowd gave three
cheers for Company K just before the,
On the Corner.
And still the battle is on between the
police and the Club. Where to find a
permanent place for holding meetings
is the chief topic of consideration. Wher
ever the Club has been granted premis
sion to meet, the police it is claimed
have driven them away. The Inspector
knows the reason why the police have
prevented this gang of loafers from
blocking our streets or disturbing the
sleep oi those who retire early, and the
police arcs most certainly justified hi
keeping this gang from holding meet
ings when able to prevent such gather
ings. Late yesterday afternoon the In
spector learned that the meeting last
night would be he'd in the "Cut" known
as "Hookers Cut" on the line of the
Williamstown railroad. The Club as
sembled on the track, while the Inspec
tor was at the top of the cut, and here
is what this aggregation of lazy, useless
and meddlesome grumblers transacted.
A vote was taken as to where the crowd
wanted the postofliee, and this called
for much discussion among those present.
About one half of the crowd wanted it
in the new city hall building, as they
claimed it was the best located. The
fighters from tha .bloody third'' wanted
iTlocated in either Miles or Currier's
block. The "Boss" war 'workers in
wards five, wanted it placed in the Morse
buildm?. While the residents of North
Uarre said the government ought to be
compelled to erect a block in their sect
ion of the city and place it down there.
Now after they finished !h"orations about
the postofliee a recess was taken for a
few minutes, and I had time to consider
the postofliee subject. The Inspector
has no personal ave to grind, and blames
no section of the city for asking for its
location. The postofliee will boom busi
ness in any seel ion of the city where it
may be located. Iiut while fair minded
men will admit that the city hall build-in"-
would be the most central location
for the oilicc, yet as Mayor donlon
sometime ago expressed it, "Do we
want to make anymore contracts with
Uncle Sam?"' If not then why should
we undertake to deprive others from
furnishing quarters for the mails? Now
Morse, Currier and Miles will have
suitable- rooms for the postoffce, and
the Inspector has no doubt but in one
of these three blocks the mails will be
sorted for the Granite City. Let the
city give us a good hall, and other nec
essary rooms, but do we want to use any
of the rooms for a postofliee. Personally
the Inspector is in favor of the postofliee
being in the City building, but as a tax
payer I say put the bid so high that Un
cle Sam will not pay it or if he conclud
es to pay the price asked secure a con
tract that shall have something of fair
ness about it.
Recess being over the club resumed
business and discussed the holding of
Executive sessions by the City Council.
The Kickers present thought the tax
payers of the city should have the rigid
to know all matters given attention in
the meetings of the City Council, and
that newspaper men should not be ex
cluded. The Inspector does not oppose
this opinion of the club, and would urge
the inemnel'H oi me council iu guf
matter a little thought. Iiut the "Cyc
lone" is coming, the club disappears

A Fatal Mistake.
Loxpux, May 21. According to the
best expert opinion here, if Cervera has
gone to Santiago Do Cuba he has made
a fatal mistake. Vice Admiral Columbo,
a naval expert, says he is convinced that
the Spanish Admiral is now unlikely to
strike at all. If he enters the Southern
port he will scarcely effect a blockade.
He can be readily watched by a few
small vessels while the rest of Samp
son's fleet, can devote themselves to
blockading other ports.
Trap City of
S.vx Fhancisco, May 21. Two more
steamers, making five in all, have been
chartered for transports to convey U. S.
troops to the Philippines. The City of
Pekin starts tomorrow and the others
will follow in a few days. There has
been a great deal of dissatisfaction ex
.preised tliat -the edition did' Got
.start earlier but this has been caused by
the fact that the government has been
unable to procure transports or uni
forms suitable for the climate of the
country into which the troops are going.
The transports are, however, almost
ready and the uniforms are rapidly be
kig made. They will be of white duck
canvass such its is worn by the. British
soldiers in India. It is thought that
about 20,000 soldiers will be landed in
I ho Philippines and that if more are
needed they will be sent nt the request
of (leu. Mcri'itt, if he considers it prac
ticable after he reaches there and has
time to look over the situation.
New Yoiik, May 21. There were
two serious conflagrations in Brooklyn

second was in a saloon. The liremen's

What They Say Of Us.
XV. V. Scott lias sold the daily and
weekly Il. mm Esteuimiise to II. C.
Whitakcr and (Icorgo A. Boss and will
now take a well-earned rest. For near
ly 20 years Brer Scott has been mana
ager, editor and publisher of the Ex
TKHPKI.se. His retirement will be re
gretted by many friends among whom
are numbered the newspaper fraternity
of the state. At the same lime the new
management will have the good wishes
of all for success in their new departure.
'The retirement of XV. V. Scott from
the P.AliitE HxTEKi'lfisE removes one of
the oldest and beet known members
the newspaper fraternity. He has been
in business at Barre 17 years, and in al
most continuous service in the printing
and publishing business since 1854.
The Enteki'Ijise has been sold to Henry
C. Whitakcr and (ieorge A. Boss, two
estimable young men, who will con
tinue to publish the weekly and daily.
Seventeen years ago Mr. Scott bought
the FxTEiii'HisE of L. P. Thayer, who
hud been printing it at Montpclicr from
the oilicc of the Vermont Farmer, and
moved it to Barre. Although there
have been a number of different papers
started during the interim, his paper
has always held t lie position of the lead
ing weekly of the city. The continuous
application to business has told on his
health and he now retires to gain much
needed rest. Through his long connec
tion with the business Editor Scott has
become personally known to nearly
every publisher in the state, and he
will "have the best wisi-es of all for a
speedy return of health and a well
earned rest. St. Johnsbury Republican
