The division encampment of the Sons of Veterans of Vermont opened this morning in Armory hall which was ap propriately decorated and arranged for the occasion. The meeting was called to order and the exercises opened by the reading of the report of the division commander V. V. Lapoint of this city. His report showed the remarkable in crease of 218 men in 1 1 camps during the present administration, which makes a difference of 619 men in 35 camps last year. The members present wero highly pleased with the advance which the division lias made and they may well be. This organization is one that should bo kept alive, and the efforts of the admin istration this year have been to that end. How well they have succeeded was shown by the report of the commander. The reports of the officers from each camp were read and accepted, and these too gave the greatest of satisfaction, for they showed that the captains and their subordinates have labored to further the successful end that has been attained the past year. An interesting item of the forenoon session was the reading of a telegram from Captain Frank L. Greene and Ser geant L. N. Gauihicr who are with the Vermont regiment at Cbicamauga. it read as follows : "Brothers at the front send greeting." i It was voted immediately to send tele grams of Congrgt ulatiou to Maj. Chas. K. Darling. Captains Foster and Greene and to Sergeant Gauihicr. The meeting voted to hold the next Division Encampment at P,radford. 'The matter of a location for the Na tional Encampment was taken up and discussed at some length. The delegat es were instructed to vote at the conven tion to have the encampment take plaee in P.oston. A pleasant feature of the attractions of the day was the life and drum corps which the Divison Commander secured for the occasion from Chelsea. The corps played at intervals all the fore noon on the streets and the public en joyed the music very much. Tlwt which attracted the attention of the peo ple most whs the little girl who played the snare drum in a remarkable man ner to the delight of all.

Leaving Home New YoiiK," July 7. Five compan ies of the First New Yoik Volunteers started this morning on their long jour ney to the Philippines. A Pathetic Incident. (Copyright 1898, the Associated Press.) Headquarters in the field before San tiago, Monday, July 4, 9 p. m., via Kingston, Wednesday, July 6. The ar tillery has remained in position through out the day on the ridge above El Pazo. two miles east of Santiago, where it was placed yesterday morning with a view of taking part in tho bombardment of the. city. The artillerymen have made prepara tions to resist a tierce return tire from the Spanish siege guns, which are mounted on the outskirts of the town and which have shown they possess good gunners and accurate range find ers. Pits have been dug for tho men and the horses have been removed to a plaee of safety, where it is thought the Span ish guns will not be able to reach them. Capt. Capron's battery was withdrawn from the hill last night and sent behind (Jen. Law ton's position, from which place it will have cross lire with the batteries on El Pazo ridge and at the same time be able to shell tho north end of the town. Tho artillery officers are confident they will bo able, when the bombard ment begins, to silence the Spanish guns and to reduce the entire position of the enemy, so that the forward rush of our troops will meet with little or nothing beyond rillc fire, and they are confident the city can be taken as soon as they are permitted to open lire and to take a hand in the battle. The incidents attending tho death of Lieut. Old, son of the late Gen. E.O. C. Ord, wero dramatic. He was an aide on the staff of (Jen, Hawkins, and throughout tho day of the battle was active and energetic m getting the troops up to the line. Ho was right in the front rank when the Sixth, Thir teenth and Twenty-fourth and Sixteenth regiments made fheir desperate charge on San Juan hill and was one of the first officers to reach the summit. Just as he passed the brow of the hill he saw a Spaniard lying on the ground, pointing to lii ill said, "Take care of that man." Tho Spaniard saw the mo tion and evidently thinking Lieut. Ord was ordering him killed, lie raised his rille and shot the lieutenant dead. The soldiers of the sixth infantry, as Lieut. Ord was an officer of that regi ment and very popular with the men, were wild with rage and literally tore the body of the Spaniard lo pieces with bullels. Then they kicked it into the trench.
