I'iuardcl Bio, April IS09.
Dear Kditou : The 202nd New
York Volunteer infantry, now stn
lioncda! ( rtiuuujuy, I'rovlnct ofPiuur
del Bio, ( '11I ;i, have a war record of
which lew people in the United
States arc aware a- hostilities in
Cuba had ceased some time before
the debarkation of this regiment
from Savannah, Ga, However, it i
an absolute fact that these boys took
pari in the battle ot "Pinar del Bio."
This is a battle which 1 have never
seen described in print, nor i-it likely
to be placed with those (ought ut
Santiago, Cardenas, and Manila, yel
it is worthy of more attention than
has vet been given it. It was some
what in the middle part of DeeeinlKT
that the '..'1 (2nd were ordered to Pinar
del Bio, being among the first re
giments selected for garrison duty
in the Eastern Provinces ot Culm
which were at this time still garri
soned heavily by Spanish soldiery.
Even Havana hail uot lieeu occupied
to any extent bv American soldiers
as it was not deemed wise to risk
any conflicts between the victor- and
VaililUlsUeil Wllerc the ioilllatol
wassuch a uncertain quantity. Pinar
del Bio was thought to be somew hat
of ii risk in this respect, ami the
troops sent lu re, I believe, were in
the nature of an experiment to leel
the way Ibr a larger lon e. In view
of this opinion theboysol the 202nd
N. V. felt, and had a right to feel,
that a hostile feeling might exist
cither among the Spanish troops sta
tioned here or from reported bands
of guerrillas in the mountains near
by. Every one knows who has
closely followed the movements of
the insurgent army in Cuba that
Pinar did Bio Province was one in
which their operations were almost
undisturbed due to the many inac
cessible places in which they could
conceal themselves from attack, prin
cipally among the rugged mountains
which cover two-thirds ot the Pro
vince. In this connection Pinar. lei
Bio is situated on an elevated plateau
Surrounded 011 two sides bv moun
tains which are not merely high
hills, but good-sized mountains and
deserving of the name. Beturning
tn the subject of thestorv (the battle).
When the202nd New Ybrkwentiu-
to camp about a half-mile outside of
1 " .
I the city limits, and about the same
j distance from the foot-hUls of the
I mountains, they naturally doubled
j their guard as an extra precaution
against any trouble that might come
: unawares. The first night (Kissed

The next day it was rumored that
an attack would be made by hostile
bands from the mountains upon the
CommisBsary so that night every
man slept in arms and sentries were
even more alert than ever. About
hall past clvcn o'clock as a single
shot broke the stillness ol the hour
closely followed by a warning cry
from the picket in that direction,
which was taken up by each sentry
in turn until it reached the camp it
sell and the usual activity, pande
monium, scramble, etc., took place.
Officers were iostlimr aiiainstone an
other endeavorinur to cet their com-
lanies together, soldier bovs were
trapping on their accoutrements and
guards preparatory to the charge on
the enemy, most ol them were only
yet halt aw ake, as tups had sounded
two hours before. All the while
mi reports were coming from ihc
quarter ol the lir-t attack, which be
came a regular fusilade. In less
time than you can think uImiiiI it
the brav e 2l "J r 1 . 1 were pushini: to the
front in the din ction ol the shots.
The undergrowth being vorv dense,
it required greal mtieiice and
courage to lace an attack U the dead
ol night under conditions, but these
were boys who never though! of
danger. Altera lew shots exchang
ed everything died away into that
deathlike stilluess which precedes
a storm, the enemy evidently having
been repulsed or were planning a
new procedure. S in were pushed
forward to reconnoitre and ascertain
the nature of their foes, also their
strength and plan of attack. And
as they lleglin coming in to the lines
again it was found that all this com
motion had been caused by a few dis
orderly boys ol their own regiment
who wanted a night's sport and had
it, except those who were not sharp
enough to conceal their identity and
received the severe sentence llleteil
out to such law breakers. Ofeourse
no one wa- hurt in thi- buttle d
Pinar del Bio, but it goes to show
that our soldier bovs are here for
business or pleasure whichever comes
their way. It required nerve to even
light an imaginary foe under such
circumstances as this, vet after all it

We would remind the Thompson
town Globe that if the picture of
Prof. o. C, Gortner, their new Coun
ty Superintendent, that is published
in last week's issue, is a true like
ness, the Professor's friends in this
county had better call him home to
see how much he bus changed. It
liniks to us as though the (ilultc used
some one else's cut to represent Prof.
Gortner as tlie picture is no more
like the (Men C. Gartner we knew
in our school days at Selinsgrove
j than if the picture were to represent
, the writer. Try again, Wicky.
