The soil is very dry, what there is that is not hid den bv rocks. The beautiful srreen grass of which there is such an abun dance in old Vermont is conspicuous by its absence, but there is one redeem ing feature and that is, that we are sit uated in the midst of a very thick grove and arc occasionally blest with a liirht breeze, were it not for this, the boys of Vermont would fare hard as the ther mometer registers from 90 to 108 in the shade (haven't dared put one in the sun yet), and the water (?) well we wont say much about it. but the people of Barre may thank their stars that they have the city water to drink.

It might be of interest to you to know what we had to eat vester-day. Breakfast, 5:0, tomatoes, cottee hardtack; dinner, 12:00, coffee hard tack, tomatoes ; supper, G :00, hardtack, coffee, tomatoes, and still some of the field ollicers wonder why the boys com plain. It is understood of course that the officers do not mess with the boys, and tbat with their salary they can ban quet where they wish. But never mind, if we live a lew nays more, we wm have more to eat, as the, government is building an oven with a capacity of 75,- 000 loaves of bread per day, and we have the promise of fresh lueat here after. So far none of Co. E. boys are in the hospital, but some do not feel like walking in heavy marching order more than ten or fifteen miles per day.

CRISIS NEAR Everything Seems to Indicate' that the Most Important Move is to Come at once. 17 SPANISH SHIPS Sighted in Santiago Harbor by An Injunction Served By Consolidated Lighting Co. on Barre Traction Co. Injunction papers were served yester day afternoon on the Barre Traction & Power Co. by the Consolidated Lighting Co. of Montpelier to restrain them from using power from the electric plant of J. S. Vilcs in Middlesex village. A number of years ago when the old company, the Barre Light. Power, Man ufacturing and Street Hail way Co. was granted a charter a contract was signed between the Standard Light and Power Co. (the old company) and the Barre company which stipulates that the latter should acquire by purchase all rights, privileges and franchises from the Consolidated Lighting Co., then the Standard Light and Power Co., for the construction of a railroad in Montpelier, Barre and Berlin. The contract re stricts them from obtaining power from any other company with the exception of the Consolidated Lighting: Co. for a ed in the period of-20 yearfroM WILLIAM BRYAN TO MADE COLONEL. BE 17 Ships in Santiago Bay. Kingston. Jamaica, Jnne 2. A dis patch from Port Antonio .says that the British cruiser Indefatigable returned there from Santiago' yesterday. They were ordered there jo assist the wound- tJatal -battle. ' i rom the contract. In the lniunctwn tne Lighting company allege that the Rail road company have signed a contract with J. S. Viles whereby he is to fur nish fhem nower. The hearing is re turnable before the court of chancery in Montpelier the second Tuesday in September. 'j he Traction company was to turn on the. electric current this morning to judge if everything was in order. It was also understood mat me euiiij.u.j in run the ears in Montpelier this morninr to see if everything was in working order and that the motormen might get used to managing the cais. Thic will nrobablv be a irrcat hinder anee to the railroad company, as they anticipated having the cars running be tween Montpelier and Barre in a couple of weeks. The directors of the road, wUh their attorneys, are holding a meeting in Montpelier this afternoon to see what action will be taken in rogard to the matter. It is understood that as Ihe contract was made between the old companies they will try and prove the contract invalid. Vermont Meteorite. Vt.. June 2. A meteor ile came to earth at 3 o'clock this morn ing in a meadow in the south part of the town. It broke into live pieces with a report heard for miles around. The investigation today as to the cause of the explosion led to the discovery that it was a broken stone. were counted in Santiago bay. This is supposed to be the full strength of Cervera's fleet and some of the 17 are probably merchantmen. Six American ships lay off the harbor and ten were circling around close in shore. No American Vessel Hit. Pout Antonia, June 2. The Asso ciated Press boat Dandy arrived last night and reports that Schley attacked the batteries at Sautiairo and the fleet of Admiral Cervera on Tuesday. The Spanish ship Colon was struck twice by shells from the Massachusetts ami the batteries were badly damaged. No American vessels were hit, no one was hurt and the Spanish loss could not have been heavy. Nothing Official. Washington, June 2. It is stated authoritively here this noon that the. navy department has fis.yet received no report from Schley. ,The ollicials are not surprised at this delay as official re ports are always late. The official, in timaticojjrfiyr, isuthat the action w Tuesday was only the initial phase of a more general movement. It is believ ed that Sohley's object was to learn the uumber of the Spanish ships in the harbor and also the effectiveness of the forts in view of the all important move to take placo later.
