Spanish American War
Those Who Served

Barry Is Not Behind The Times In War Enthusiasm

Patriotism is manifest in every quarter and the one topic of conversation is the approaching conflict with Spain. Almost before war was declared a movement was started for the organization of a volunteer company to go to the front. H. M. Hollembeak took the matter in hand and as result of his efforts the following have been enrolled for the Barry company: Harry M. Hollembeak, John B. Hazen, O. [or C.] Bolen, T. W. Perry, J. H. Riffle, Geo. Underwood, Jas. T. Cochran, S. B. Day, W. B. Brown, L. H. Wendorff, Wm. A. Smith, Chas. Steininger, T. C. Ewing, H. D. Parks, Wesley W.Kintz, Joshua Havird, Jr., W. R. Peck, G. H. Wike, Chas. E. Dodge, Perry Martin, Fred Lane, Ray M. Goodale, C. C. Farmer, Ventnor Booth, Wm. West, John Hall, Jr., Geo. McWorter, Chas. Hankins, T. Oliver Dole, S. T. Osborn, Joe McFarland, Henry Kuntz, J. W. Jennings, Frank Potter, Walter Arnold, Barna Lomax, Paul Nobis, E. A. Woodward, Harry Browning, Len Hurt, W. A. McCracken, John Tillman, Carl Gorton, A. E. Sherer, John Martin, Thos. Hamilton, Herbert Reeder, Elbert Bigelow, Ellis Wike, Chas. Boggs.

The men are all eager for the fray and stand ready to respond on short notice to their country's call. The first call for volunteers is confined entirely to the state militia, but if the war is protracted, which seems probable, another call for troops will no doubt be made and in that case our company hopes to go. The adjutant general has been tendered the services of the company.
