On the Corner.
Many of those who intended to be
present for the formation ot "On the
Corner Club" Saturday were detained
at homo making preparations for war,
so the date was changed until later in
the month. The stage was late this
morning and the Inspector did not reach
the "Corner" until after most of the
debate had taken place. No meeting
was held on Sunday, as nearly every
speaker "On the Corner" either went
to eburch or listened to the Salvation
Army. fcne topic discussed was the. sal
ary of City Clerk Wells. "Hut is a first
class officer anil ought to get a good
thing," declared one of the "Vets."
"Yes, and by jingo!" said another of
the debaters, "he will if 1 can help him
to it." From the remarks which were
made while the Inspector was present,
there appeared to bo a unanimous opin
ion that the City Clerk should be given
a good salary, for it was claimed "On
the Corner" that the city has no more
efficient official than Mr. Wells. It
was also argued that that the next
charter amendment should provide a
salary for the city clerk. "It is indeed
strange," say the "Corner" wise men.
"that so important an officer as the city
clerk must be uncurtaiu as to the
amount of salary he is to receive, and
must depend upon the vote of the peo
ple." Are these men not right? Should
not the City Clerk know wbat pay he is
to receive when he assumes the office?
How long must Barre be without a
large sizedlpostollice?" asked the Chair
man of "the Corner,? Until the govern
ment learns that liar re is a place entit
led to proper treatment," the inspector
at.sweicd. Why should towns much
smaller then our own busy city have the
favor of a public building paid with
government dollars and liarie be com
pelled to have its postal business tran
sacted in the basement of a church build
ing? Because this government is loo
much like a miser when dealing with
Harre. No one "On the Corner' regrets
that the church society is receiving good
pay from the government, for if any one
can succeed iu securing any money from
the government they sliotild be credited
for so doing, The Inspector docs not
advance tnis discussion because of any
desire to see the society lose its income
because there is no danger it will, for
as long as the government can rent the
church vestry at small pay, Harre will
have to put up with it. The Inspector
would suggest that 'Barre support no
candidate for Congress in the comming
election unless Harre can be assured ol
better postal accommodations than at
present are given this city.
When the W omens Federation f
clubs maki the improvements on the
lecal park it is to be hoped the men who
crowd into it nights and Sundays will
have some regard for the work which
has been pert'orini d on it and not seek
to fill it again with rubbish and make it
not much better than ndumping ground.
City meeting next Monday. Those
Corner men will be there. They have
selected a debater who says he will
carry the house by storm anil secure a
sewer for the went side.
If this ci'y takes any, part in the com
ming war with the kingdom of Spain,
liarie will have no reason to regret the
work of the liurru lighters. Indeed the
Inspector is informed that a second com
pany could be formed here composed of
former members of the Spencer Rifles.
In his sermon Sunday Rev. W. R.

vestment iu such a case. If we only
knew, who would object to bonding to
build the system at once?
As another army of side walk orators
have started a new debating school near
the Depots, the Inspector must catch a
ride in Callaghan's bakery wagon and
go to the station where a heated debate
is iu progress. Wait and hear all a
bout it from

The Present Situation.
'1 he resolution as agreed to is as
follows : Joint resolution for the inde-
poiideuee of the people of Cuba, demand
ing that the government of Spain rclin-
qui, hits authority and government in
the Island of Cuba, to withdraw its laud
and naval forces from Cuba and Cuban
waters, and directing the President of
ths United Slates to use the laud and
naval forces of the United States to carry
these resolutions into effect.
Whereas, The abhorrent conditions
which have existed for more than three
vears in the l.-land of Cuba, so near our
own borders, have shoekPd the moral
sense of the people of the United States,
have been a disgrace to Christian civil
ization, culminating as thev have iu the
destruction of a United States battleship
with two hundred and sixty-six of its jot-
rioers and crew, while on a friendly
visit in tlu! harbor of Havana, and can
not longer be eudurec, as has been set
forth by ihe President of the United
States in his message to Congress of
pril 11, 1898, upon which the action
Congress was invited; therefore
of Resolved, First that the people of the
Island ot Cuba are, and of right, ought
to be free aud independent.
Second 1 hat it is the duty of the
States to demand and Ihe government of
the United States does hereby demand
that the government of Spain at once
relinquish its authority aud government
in the Island of Cuba and withdraw its
land and naval forces from Cuba and
Cuban waters. .
Third That the President of ihuUnital
States be, and he hereby is, directed
and empowered to use the entire land
and naval forces of the United Stales
and to call into a Mual service of the
United States the militia of tho several
States, to such extent as may be neces
sary to carry these resolutions into
Fourth That Ihe United Stales hereby
disclaims imy disposition or intention lo
exercise sovereignty, Jurisdiction or
control over said Island except tor the
pacification thereof, and assetrs its dc
terminatiod when that is accomplished
to leave the government and control of
the Island to its people,
The President retired before midnight
and the White House was deserted ex
cept for the exculive clerk, Mr. Mont
gomery, who received the bulletin an
nouncing Ihe Senate's action over the
Capitol wire. The message was turned
over to the dome-tic end of the mansion
aud without waiting for the action of
the House the executive officers were
elioson for the night.
Fighting the MohinilncM.
Private Lever of tho Hufls tells two
characteristics of the fight iu which be
was hit when General Joffery, with
the mouutaiu battery und escort, was
hemmed iu a village all night by thou
sands of Mobmuuda. The wounded were
lying under a wall exposed to torrents
of rain and to showers of stones which
the enemy burled down at them from
houses near. It seemed impossible that
uy relieving force could come to their
aid beforo daybreak or that the mere
handful of Bull's could hold out much
longer. Their ammunition was ruuniug
short. Then Lever heard 0118 wounded
officer ask another, "How many shots
have you got in your revolver?" "Only
two." "Then don't waste them, old
chap; keep one for mo, the other for
When ammunition was so nearly ex
hausted that uo orders were given to
fire until the enemy could bo distinctly
seen, a sudden rattle of irregular fire
was beard on one side of the village,
followed by savage yells, but no other
sound. The few Buffs holding a post iu
that direction stood with rifles leveled
ready to fire volleys directly a rush was
attempted. The commotion came near
er, and just as the noncommissioned of
ficer iu charge of that post had the
command to "present" on his lips the
flauio from a native guu flashed ou
bristling steel. British bayonets had
been doing their grim work there in the
darkness so silently that nobody thought
friends were so near. The relief had
come The eaemy gave way, aud a min
ute later Major Worlledge, with his
companies of Sikhs aud guides, entered
tho village. London News.
