of Tuesday, it is reported, consisted of
12 rapid lire guns and six dynamite
guns. There were also 50.000 cartridges.
All these articles were loaded on a

Ruffalo. X. Y Aug. 2k Buffalo Is all
ready for tlie army of veterans who
are on their way here to attend the
31st annual cncainpnie: t of the Crand
Army of tlie Republic. During the night
hundreds of veterans and their friends
arrived, and today they are coming in
by thousands. It is estimated that
nearly 8,000 strangers were in town on
Saturday, and that from 15,000 to 20,000
came in yesterday. The various rail
roads entering Iiuffalo report that, in
addition to the hundreds of regular
trains, schedules have been prepared
.for l'4r specials to arrive here by tomor
row noon. Among the prominent ar
rivals are J. Cory Winans, chief of
Commander-in-Chief Clarkson's staff;
J. R. Lewis, oast junior vice com

Camp Jewett, as the city of tents is

until 4 o'clock this afternoon, a number
of J tost s are already installed. Ample
arrangements have been made at the
camp and elsewhere for the care of
the sick. The hospital tents have been
erected at Camp Jewett, each in charge
of a competent staff of physicians.
The honor of living the first pennant
from any tent at Camp Jewett belongs
to Reno Post. No. 61. of Williamsport,
Pa. A detachment of 11 members ar
rived Saturday, and was assigned to
tents 27, 2S and 2H. Clayton P. White,
of Williamsport, was the tirst veteran
to arrive, and is quartered 011 the
steamer Idaho, which has been assign
ed to the naval posts.

Colonel Winans, of Commander-in-Chief
Clarkson's staff, estimates th"
number of visitors to Buffalo during
the week at 230,000, making the largest
encampment ever held. In speaking of
the choice of the veterans for the next
encampment Colonel Winans said that,,
so far as Ins informatian went, there
was but one choice among the dele
gates, and that was Cincinnati. There
seems to be a feeling, he said, among
some of the i-astei i people that San
Francisco wants the encampment, but
that is a mistake. San Francisco is
preparing to make a bid in isii'.t. With
regard to the encampment being held
in Richmond, Va., he continued, there
is nothing in it. The people down there
do not want it, and the ve terans do not
care to go there. The status of the
negro is so different in the south from
that in the north that it would cause
much unpleasantness. Notwithstand
ing this vitrw, the Young Men's Busi
ness association of Richmond has open
ed headquarters here, and is making
an effort to secure the encampment.
Colonel Winans says Pennsylvania
will send the most people to the en
campment, with New York second and
Ohio third in attendance.
The dec-oration of the city with bunt
ing and electric lights is elaborate.
Nearly every building in the business
section is more or less lavishly be
decked. On Main street opposite St.
Paul's church, the business center of
the city, stands the welcome arch. It
is a monster structure in the form of
a monogram composed of the letters
"C A. R." The arch, or span, is form
ed by tlie legs of the1 letter "A." which
is in white, while the "(." and "R."
tire in red and blue. This is surmounted
by two beautiful shields, standing on
which is a golden eagle, bearing in its
beak an electric device with the wore!
"Welcome." At night 2.. 100 incandes
cent lamps illuminate the arch. There
are several other splendid arches in

mayor of Buffalo, a c ity of .'i.aOO tents,
provided for the aceoinmodat ion of the

the Front, a broad plaza, on the citv
park system, adjoining Fort Porter, and
overlooking Lake Frie, the mouth of
the Cayuga river and the Canadian
fhore. At its entrance on Porter ave
nue, a few blocks below the reviewing
stands, is another arch. It is made to
resemble iManite, and forms an im
posing en 1 1 a lie .
one of the most brilliant features
will be the living shield, which will be
produced en Wednesday, the clay of
the paiade. Four thousand children
from the schools, who have b-en under
lebe'.usal for weeks, will form the
shield, which will stand on Chippewa
Ftret-t. just below Delaware avenue, at
the point where the line of march
turns from Chippewa stiet-t into the
avenue. Ls position will be such as
to face the m irehing c olumns for the
two blocks. The platform upon which
the child; en will be placed will be built
tquarely across Chippewa street, cut
ting off all traflic. It v.iil resemble a
large grand stand, the seats graduating
upward as the e levation increases. This
will give the shield the appearance in
tended, namely, of resting on an easel.
Figures in red, white and blue will
be so arranged as to form the outline

and with whio stars in a blue held,
surrounded by a border of black. Boys
in blue garments will form the black

The Bulletin from Dyea. Alaska, tells
of the pitiful condition of many of the
searchers for gold who are now stop
ping at Dyea, unable to proceed far
ther on their journey owing to the lack
of fun Is or provisions.
. Manj- of those now in Dyea are phys
ically unable to make the trying trip,
and there are many who will suffer
great hardships before the winter is
over. Many of those who arrived on
the steamer Willamette are absolutely
without shelter, seemingly having come
to this cold region depending on the
open hearted d" the others to keep
them living. Many of the people who
are unable to reach Dawson this win
ter have two tons of provisions and no
possible means of transportation. One
man lias over 3,000 pounds, which he is
trying to pack over the White pass in
lots of 7f pounds each, making short
relays. Thieves have been operating
extensively, and many te-nts. tools and
much ammunition and money have
been stolen. Already a vigilance com
mittee is spoken of, and unless the
thefts cease trouble will follow.
