That Goat Has Become Dissipated aitd Insbordtnate-Good Health tr- of the Regiment. Second Army Corps, Camp Alger, Va., ) May-31. A feeling of rejoicing was manifested in camp today when the boys of the. 65th learned of the departure of ' Gen. Miles for the South, and the orders issued to New York regiments stationed at Cbickamauga o more to Tampa. They ; belieVc-tnese movements are indicative " of the purpose of the Government to . send some of he regiments here, and of course the tSth. to the front in the near future. Beginning at 9 oVIock this morning and . not concluding until a late hour this afternoon. Col. Welch has been inspecting the regiment. Every company, mustered - to its foil streugth. in heavy marching order, ha undergone the ordeal. The Colonel has inspected every soldier, his uniform, arms and equipments. When i It was over he said the boys made a very fair Showing. That is a lot. for Col. Welch to say. He is a modest man. -. Following the inspection and muster, there was usual brigade parade. There is Said to be hope that the soldiers will receive their Government pay promptly, the inspection today being preliminary. The Government pays once -a month,- and' the regiment has seventeen days' due it.- As for the State pay. that is apparently as far away as ever. There is nom'e tangle aliout the pay-rolls, and they will have to be returned here for alteration.'. Last night, when returning from Washington. Lieut. Phileox and a party of Vtioth men who were absent on leave, stopped a riot at the aqueduct bridge, and - rescued, a negro policeman from rough treatment by a crowd of thugs and loafers. A few of the boys who went to the , capital yesterday, overstayed their leave, and this morning, in conequence, are'doing police duty, and will stay on their company streets for the next week. Lieut. Pagan is today in Washington taking in the siphts. Gen. Butt, the goat, is becoming a disreputable character. He expects a int of beer twice a day and an ununited supply of chewing tobacco. This morning the General imbibed a trifle too much, and was remarkably frisky, attempting to butt the chaplain and otherwise not demeaning himself properly. In his better momenta the General is Tery tame and sociable. . After inspection, some of the 'officers attended an exhibition Of rough riding, given by the troopers of "Troop C, under the direction of CftTt. daxton. The New York cavalrymen acquitted themselves handsomely- Senator Wojcott's wife, formerly Mrs. Lyman K. Bass of Buffalo, visited the regiment this morninc. accompanied by a party of ladies, and was an interested : spectator of the inspection. John Howard of Buffalo also called on friends. Private Henry F. Ksiugbern of Company 'F ihas been promoted to be a corporal, rank to date from May 1st, on the direct recommendation of Capt. Norton, for meritorious conduct. Owing to trouble over the food, there baa been - hake-up in Company B. new men being detailed for kitchen work. Musician Kerala ke, who was reported dead at Hempstead, passes an enjoyable .moment reading obituary notices sent ; hinvby hia friends. Private Reinhart captured a five-foot black - snake yesterday, with which the boya had a lot of fun after the reptile had been decapitated. v H.alth.T 65 h. There have been no removals to the general "hospital today. Private Bauer, . who was sent there yesterday, made his sneak during the night and returned to camp." He is much better, and will be able to do company duty very soon. The men at Fort Meyer, mentioned in The : Courier, nre doing well, lu marked contrast to the health of this regiment: is the condition existing in others. One regi--ment "has thirty men on its hospital list and all have several more than the G5th. Boxinr contests are of freouent occur rence, but they are good natured and rarely last over three or four rounds. . This noon a private of Company M lired a blank cartridge by mistake while in hit tent. The sound frightened a team .of mules, and they ran into a carriage containing a young man and his girl. No damage was done. . ' AatoaUhed the Chaplain. - Yesterday Kalsy Hill was instructing . the mule driver how to drive mules proi-, erly. The animals did not respond to Kalsv's commands, and backed Into the chaplain' tent, greatly to the astonish-; ment and alarm of Mr. Fisher. - The guard detail for tomorrow will be Capt. Dorst, officer of the day, and Lieuts. Fenton and Hughes. Blank Government pay-rolls arrived v late this evening, accompanied by instructions to fill them out and hold them until the arrival of the paymaster.

F "One of the- most singular things connected with this war is the idtense desire of able-bodied and good men to take a hand in it." said Surgeon William G. Bissell of the 74th Regiment, jast even-nig. , "While other nations have to send companies to their soldiers out to force men to serve, we have actually to use force to keep men from enlisting. There is no other country on the face of the srlohe todav where so 'bieh a standard is required for the common soldjer. One of our recruits was rejected tonight because he exceeded the limit fixed by the Government as regards weight." A found Too t.aavy. . ',. The man in question Lwas a sturdy, solid-built farmer from Eaat Aurora, who gave his name as William Haimer. He weighed 181 pounds one pound overweight: not a necessary disqualification, but the hulk of his weight happened to be just above the belt, and his : militated against him. J f 'I'm the toughest mn in the Armory ," said he to Capt. Angus. "1 want to go to the front, and I will, too. lA pound more or less shouldn't shut nie out, either." ; ? . "Why don't you go j into training, and knock off that extra pdund?" asjied Capt. Angus ? i "I will, but when I try again It will be with a regiment that's got a chance to go." was his retort. t'Vnx going to try the heavy artillery tomorrow."; Fifty applications were received at the Armory last night, and Lieut.-Col. Cottle and the examining surgeons were kept busy putting the candidates; through their paces. The rolls 'now show a membership of 8."V. leaving about 10 vacancies to be filled. When asked as to the possibility of there being many rejections from the 74th. in case it should be called out. Capt. Angus. Regimental Adjutant, said: i J "We have always been very Careful as to the men admitted to the 74th. and as a consequence, are in good shape today. While our examination .has not been quite as severe as that of the regular; army, it has been far more strict thaqj that of the National Guard generally, i For Instance, we require a chest expansion of two and one half inches, and a man must be physically netfect to become, h member. There will he veryl few rejections." ' At the Arsenal everything 'is at a LEHNER CHARGED WITH MAKING MONEY. He Bein? in the) Penitentiary for Disorderly Conduct,; His House Was Searched, and Metal, a Mould arid I Bogus; Coins Were Found. When John Lehnersjof No. 255 Howard Street is discharged from the Erie County Penitent'ary, Where he is now confined, he will be arrested at once on a warrant charging him; with counterfeiting. i j i Ix'hner is said to be well known in p'o-police circles, and this is not ;the first time that he ha been in the Penitentiary for minor offenses, but it was not until yesterday that he was ever susjected of making spurious coiu. J Last Sunday he was arrested for disorderly conduct and was fined $25. Not having thrmoney, he was sent to the Penitentiary tor twenty-five days. ; ; Yesterday afternoon. Deputy 1 Marshal Cavannugh received information which led him to believe that Lehner was guilty of more serious crimes than that of disorderly conduct, and. going; to .Leh-ner's house, in Howard 8treet,he made a thorough investigation of the premises. in one room me oincer was regarded by TOO YOUNG TO WED. Italian Couple Who Sought the Mayor's; Service. Bridegroom Must Have Parents' Con. sent and They're In South America A Luckier Pair. '; When Mayor Diehj returned to his office yesterday afternoon, he found two wedding parties awaiting him. His Honor has lost much of tbe diffidence which was a marked characteristic when h Was first called upon to tie the knot matrimonial, and when he learned the errand of the waiting couple.; he smiled. Then he issued orders to his trusted 'detective, George Krug, to prepare his prif ate fiiee for the ceremony. The first couple came from sunny Italy, and gave their names as Antonio Mazzarina and Francesca Beganti. The would-be bridegroom was a sturdy young fellow, well-dressed and prosperous looking. The bride appeared still younger, and as she leaned on the arm of the Dnaegroom, a look of pride filled her jet black eyes. She was decked in her finest apparel. ,. "I am sixteen." she answered briefly, when the . Major asked the important question as to age. ? r . His Honor stroked his beard and pondered for several minutes, and 'then remarked: j "That's too bad. Too yountf to enter the matrimonial bonds. Have you the permission of your parents Vi Then another , couple stepped forward, and with" the aid of an interpreter explained that they were the father and mother of the girl, and were ' satisfied to have her married. ; Antonio's turn came next, and then a real obstacle was brought to. the surface He was but twenty years old, and his parents live in South America. Again the Mayor did some heavy thinking, then sadly r turned to the expectant pair and said: j j. , "Sorry for you, young people, but the marriage can't come off. If the bride was the only one under age. there would be no impediment, as her parents have1 fiven their eon tir.r AntnnU t ; worse shape, and until .he gets permis-1 ?n front his people, I can't marry him.

Paraons, "It we could only have the assurance that we would be called out I could fill every company in a.day. It w hard on me. I was the third in the 65th to volunteer and here I am left at home.l neither fish nor fowl. . They tell me I ant serving my country by sticking to my post, but its a wearisome task." ' ' ' : Heavy Artillery. ; Lieut. Todd of the 7th Artillery, U. S. A., has opened his office on the fifth floor of the D. E. .Morgan Building, at Main and Huron streets and today will begin recanting for the heaivy artillery. lready a number of men have called at his rooms at the Hotel Fillmore and have offered their, services. ; but he has declined to even talk business until his quarters ere established. Today his assistants, a regular army sergeant and two privates, will arrive, and a physician will be engaged to make the necessary examinations.- "Buffalo strikes me as a good field for just such men as I require," said Lieut. Todd last evening. "I have no dotobt as to my success in 'getting all the men I need. " , ' ... "One thing ; that surprises me is that a recruiting office for the nftvy has not been opened in this city. It is the foot of the Great Lakes, and some! of the best material jn the shape op sailors, engineers and machinists, just the cluss of men wanted In the navy, can be found here. I understand that the nearest ?lace where siich men can enlist; is Erie, t should be here, and I may; write to the department and suggest that an officer be sent here to gather this force in. At Fort Porter dipt. Chance is still enlisting men for the 13th Infantry, He has a squad of fifteen recruits which he will send to Fort McPherson, On., in a few days. ; ; . ; ; i : . Among those who applied to Lieut. Todd last evening, for admittance to the 7th Artillery was Harry Evans, interpreter to the Police Court, and first Sergeant of Company A, 4 Regiment. He is thoroughly versed in military tactics, and wants to go to the front. MJ- il rown'j Tlry. ; At the armory of the Buffalo ; City Troop in West I'tica Street,; eighty men in one of Maj. Ira C. Brown's cavalry companies were put through a; severe drill last night. In the troop rooms, Dr. Clark, assisted by two physicians' was busy examining men who had already c;,.T.:w1 itu rolls; Tim fv ii nii n:i t ion was unusually severe. One man. a; black- smith by occupation. wia a rq; ukc death, a'riiuscle like iron and a form that would make iiny artist happy, was rejected because he was slow, i "I can outlift any man in the place, can throw him over my bead or crush liim in mv fist." said he to DK Clark.; "Never was sick in my life, and what; I don't know about horses isn't worth learning." "But vou're slow in movement," explained the doctor. "Take a week, exercise daily in sprinting, then! come; back and we'll take you." s i When asked as to the prospect of the regiment being called out. Dr. Clark said: ; S "We are all confident that 'we will go. Maj. Brown is in Washington hftK and we expect to iear good news from: him. We have enough men now t6 put a full regiment in the field, and every one of them will pass the most rigid examination. We are still eulisting men and when the time comes will take only the cream. In the meantime we are drilling right along." r finding a small wooden box, , which had been carelessly; thrown under a table. In this box wasifouiid a quantity iof zinc and block tin, both of which; metals are largely used in making counterfeit Coins. In the box. was alo found a plaster of paris mould for 5-cent pieces. iThis mould was made very small and, from its size as well as the partially-finished coins found in the box, Mr. Cavanaugh believes that Lehner is as yet an amateur at counterfeiting.- Two unfinished coins, : one a 5-ccnt piece and the other, a half-i dollar, were in-the box. but neither show ed a high clnsk of workmanship. NothiuK else indicating that Lehner hiid . been making bad money was found i in the houseand the box and its contents were taken in charge by Marshal Cavanaugh, who laid the information which 1 he had secured before United States Commissioner C.

INVENTOR'S HARD LUCK. ;:, . U - I Baye Buffalo Men Stole Hia Perpetual Motion Machine! S. S. Rogers of Syracuse, an inventor of a so-called perpetual motion machine has returned to his home from a- business trip to Buffalo, says the Syracuse Post with a part of bis mechanical contrivance missing. Rogers accuse! a man named Talmage, ana some other friendly 'capitalists", of this city, with sneaklni portions of the machine from his boarding-house here? while he wa absent. The inventor returned to Syracuse somewhat out of patience, but snot disheartened. He says that the men Tallage agreed to buy the right to manufacture the machine for 1100,000, but the deal fell through. Talmage continued" to call at RogersV boarding; place, however, and Rogers says that one day he missed the whole ; machine.

Notwithstanding the j continued com plaint of vesselmen thai business is bad and little is doing in lake freights, actual figures show a great improvement during May over the same period last year. During the month ending yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock, there was reported at the Custoui House 31.479, 8T2 bushels of grain as .against 23.944.-GOO bushels for May of 1897.

Rliin.d Burr iid Outhwilt. Alpena. May 31.. The steamer J. H. Outhwaite and schooner H. A. Barr, which were released from' False Presque Isle Reef, after spending seven weeks there, were brought in today. The Outhwaite has straightened out considerably, and is not in nearly as bad shape as was at first supposed. The holes in her bottom have been; patched up and one pump keeps her free. The Barr is leaking a very little. Both boats leave tonifiht, in tow of the tug Protector for Detroit. When the situation of the reef and the exposed condition of the boats is taken into consideration, the release of these two crafts is one of the most successful and expeditious wrecking operations ever known on the lakes. Capt. James Reid, who had the contract, will-clear about $15,000 for his work, it is Btiid. Ltndaay Finally Released. Collingwood, May 31. The steamer A. G. Lindsay, which has been ashore for three days west of the channel here, was released today. Her wheel is broken, and she will be docked here for repairs. Considerable of her grain cargo, from South Chicago, was lightered to effect her release. Xfw Brokerage Firm. Capt. M. M. Drake of the Lackawanna Line and G. W. Maytham. for ten years secretary and treasurer of tne Maytham Tug Line, and manager of the Republic Steamship Company, have formed a partnership for a general insurance and ves-. sel brokerage business, with offices at No. 1 Main Street. Their business will cover both lake and canal consignments. Wheeler & Co. Assign. Bay City. May 31. F. W. Wheeler & Co.. shipbuilders, have made an assignment to II. W. Wicbes of Saginaw, preferring numerous local creditors in their mortgages. The shipyard has been shut down until1 arrangement for completing the three big Rockefeller boats can be made. Secretary Steever says that it is probable the Rockefeller or Bessemer Company will operate the yard until its vessels are finished. No further information will be given out by the company, but it is reported that serious differences between President Wheeler and some of the other directors of the company were the causes of the assignment. Judge Coxe'a Decision. The decision of Judge Coxe in the matter of the libel and cross libel of the Livingstone and the Grand Traverse, has been filed. The boats collided on Lake: Erie on October 19, 1896. the Traverse being suuk. Action for damages was at' once begun by the Lackawanna Trans-: portation Company, owners of the Grand; Traverse, and a cross libel was instituted by the Michigan Navigation Company,: denying all allegations of neglect on the part of the Livingstone, Both vessels are held to have been in fault, by Judge Coxe; and his decision is; that there must be a division of costs and a reference to compute the amount. Tug; Destroyed by Fire. Menominee, May 31. News reached here tonight that the tug Agnes Arnold was totally destroyed by fire last night,: at Chambers Island. The captain and crew of the boat were at the lighthouse eating supper, when the flames broke ouL: and when discovered they had gained such headway that the efforts to put them out were in vain. The loss is estimated at $3,500, with insurance of $2,000.' The tug was owned by Capt. M. J. Arnold of Marinette. Minor Marine Notes. The reported assignment of Wheeler, & Co., the Bay City ship-builders, recalls the fact that the first steel steamer built by this firm was the Emily P. Weed.; Others of their first steel vessels wer the Mackinaw and Keweenaw, which subsequently; went to salt water, being cut in two for passage through the canals. It was counted a great feat at the time, and was made the subject of much newspaper talk. Canal officials claim that the last break at Brockport. is not nearly as bad as opponents of the waterway report. They; insist that repairs will be made within two or three days at the most. Dennis Lynn, for several years a marine reporter at Port Huron, died" on! Monday. John H. Galwey has been appointed inspector of boilers at Detroit. The new steamer City of Erie will make a dock trial at Detroit todav. Porter Brothers are building a 600-foot dock at Houghton. It will be used for supplies. ) i Coal hearers at Portage Lake docks struck for an advance of five cents an; hour. Their demand was; acceded to.: They are now receiving fortv cents an hour. . The steamer State of Ohio left' Cleveland yesterday afternoon for Chicago, where she will go on her new route. Davidson's new propeller, the Orinoco,! arrived on her first trip yesterday afternoon, loaded with wheat from Fort William. Other late arrivals were the Samuel Mather. Toltec and barge Miztec, City of Berlin and George Stone. Excursion boats are now fairly started on the seasons' work. Floating elevators are being put in shape for business. Considerable transferring of grain from propellers to canal-boats direct, for Eastern shipment, will -be done. i . 1 ,., j . , i About ten days win be renniri n plete the finishing touches to the New York. She will tne be taken immediately to her new home on Lake Ontario.

One woman contended that the big iron pipes, a foot in diameter, which are strung along Pearl Street preparatory to being laid in trenches, are to be used as gas mains. Another, and a younger woman, insisted that the pipes are to used as water mains. Each bet the other t&at she was right fn her conclusion, and put up a box of chewing-gum as a wager. Last night both women went to the Pearl Street Police Station, stated their propositions to Desk-Sergeant Meyer, and! asked him to decide the bet. When he had finished smiling, he made a polite . bow to the younger woman, and informed her that the pipes would be used us water mains. That settles it! That settles itl The tutti-frutti is miner exclaimed the young woman, as she clapped her hands and danced in her delight. ; " f - "Your decision will cost me the price of a box of tram., gravely f aiJ the, loser Of tb t?t. .':s --.t :,:- . ,T;7 1 r-t t r f XLS TT TT TT n fee rrzz x u Winning' f Wash ioodr " ' "1V',''ss- T .
