There was inspection drill of the
Third brigade this afternoon and the
members of the Thirteenth diitin
KUlshed themselvs by their proficiency
in drill as tbey did during the inspin-
tion of arms and accouterments on the
previous day. They made better time
than any other regiment in the Third
brigade going through the inspection
drill. Colonel Elliott, division luspeC'
tor, conducted the drill which was wit
nesd br many division officers.
Tomorrow the First and Second
brigades will have inspection drill and
on Thursday there will be a division
Now that the inspection is over the
members of the '.thirteenth nave set
tied down to enjoying camp life. The
expectation of inspection is always a
. thorn in the side of the guardsmen,
and they are much pleaeed that ic has
come so early this year. The members
of the regiment di 1 tbemslves proud
and there is no doubt that tbey will
continue to oecnpy the high place in
the official report of the inspection that
1 tbey have in the past.
Though the boys had a great task in
ridding their uniforms and shoes of a
two days' accumulation of mud. they
succeeded admirably, and every officer
and private was as neat and spruce
looking as unstinting la Dor could make
That the regiment most favorably
impressed the inspecting officers and
those who accompsuied them was
shown by their comments.
"That the regiment is male np of
tborougb soldiers is evi lent from their
fine appearance and perfect mntiterly
of all those little details which some
members of the guard are prone to
neglect, but which above everything
else denotes the thoroughly trained
soldier" was what Governor Pattison
"I believe that the National guard
is improving year by year," remarked
Adintant (ieneral (irenland, "and the
Thirteenth is one of the regiments thut
is setting the paoe."
"A magnificent body of men," said
General Snowden.
''That is one of the crack regiments
of the state." remarked one of General
Bnowden's staff to Captain Rogers, of
the regular army, who is watching the
Inspections for the army department
''That is the cratk regiment of the
state," retorted the captain as h
watehed the members of the Thir
teenth pass along in review.
After the inspection Colonel Ripple
received many congratulations on the
nne sbowiug bis men made. The field
for the inspection was measured off
and the flies planted by Adjatant Mil
lar. After the Inspection of the Thir
teenth was completed the eolonels of
the regiments that succeeded it on the
inspection grounds sent requests to
Mr, Millar for permission to avail
themselves of bis work in preparing
the field. It was, of eonrse granted.
and shows that Mr, Millar's plans of
laying ont the field found favor with
the members of the other regiments,
, Ihongli every ctlort was made to
have Adjatant Millar accept the first
lientenancy of Company B, he deolined
the bouor. About a week ago he told
the members of the company tbat be
could not accept, but on Monday Cap
tain Kdllow and a committee of the
officers of Company B waits on him
to have him re-conslder bis determlna
tion. They were unsucoassfnl for the
reason that the field and stuff and many
of the line officers, as well bs the entire
membership of Company E, earnestly
requested Mr. Millar to continue as
reuimental adjutant. Colonel Rlpnl
also personally requested Mr. Millar to
remain in bis position as adjutant, ana
ont ot deference to their wishes, he
consented. i
This is Mr. Millar's eighth year
adjutant, and bis perfect knowledge of
tactics and the duties of his office
make him an invaluable man. To him
belongs much of the credit for the fino
showing the Thirteenth always makes

1 he soldiers continued to get in the
Gettysburg guard house in-great num
bers for leaving camp without a per
mit. On Monday afternoon a Gettys
burg band mad its appearance on the
streets attired in the regulation Na
tional guard trousers. A Philadelphia
regiment was doing guard duty in the
town at tbe time and tbey arrested the
tmisio dispensers in a body. It re
quired two hours of explaining on the
part ot tbe musicians to obtain their
release. The camp continues to at
traot few visitors, for about the only
thing the Gettysburg people like about
the visitors is their mney. They

Term Candidate.
Washington, Aug, 14
T it evident that tne long and bit tor
fight ou the pasauge of the Wilson
bill has at least served to clear up
the political outlook as regards the
lines on which the presidential oam
paign will be conducted in 'DO. It is
generally conceded on all sides that the
lections this fall will be the skirmish
prior to the great battle two years
later, and already tongues ar wag
ging and political leaders prospecting
as to who will be the victorious stand
ard bearer. No one doubts but that
the presidential fight will be one of tbe
hardest aud sharpest ever fought, and
that the burniug question will be the
reinonitiZ'itiou of silver. The follow
ers of the white metal are daily making
urge acquisitions to their forces, and
he indications are tbat tbe tariff dis
cussion will be a secondary issue.
It is iu view of the fact that the
silver men propose to make the money
question tue paramount issue in th
next campaign that politicians are
casting about lor a leader who has the
winning qualities. Curiously enough,
both in the Democratic- and ltupuull-
can parties tbe candidates who are
most talked about are already trim
uiiug their sail for the coming silver
breeze. Among the former may be
mentioned Senators Hill, Gorman and
Biice, Secretary Carlisle and Via
President Stev.icson; while among the
latter are ' .loin Heed, liovernor Mc-
Kinley, tx-President Harrison, Sena
tors Cameron and letter and other.
only death can stop HIM.
But besides all these possible candi
dates there is another thut promise to
come to the trout, and that is Grover
Cleveland. Senator Vance, of North
Uarulina, whose knowledge of meu aud
tuiiigd was most remarkable, used to
tell bis friends a year ugo that Cleve
land would make auother race for the
presidency, and that nothing but death
would prevent him from ruuniug for a
third term, iue question of bis candi

capitol are more or less varied.
For the past week or more the writer
bas been gathering the private views

third term candidacy of Mr. Clnvelaud.

tne Democrats, in many lnstaucos, the

tne feeling seeinud to be gtiuiug

such u dilemma lu view uf the eigue of

But the queition of Mr. Cleveland's
third-term canvass is pivoted on the
exigencies of -.the political situation,
aud not merely on his availaulity, and
whether or not he is actually cocniz
