ANN 1 VERSARV RECEPTION.
A very delightful surprise parly took
place last evening in Odd Fellows' hall,
(he object of which was the celebration
of the 10th anniversary of the marriage
of Mr. and Mrs. Frank (I.IIowland. The
many friends of the couple have been li -boringfor
some lime to find out the
exact date of this anniversary, but
owing to the suspicion of Mr. and Mrs.
(lowland that such an affair might lake
pla;'c, they were unable to obtain the
exact information, consequently the
time had to be set approximately and
last night was decided upon, so after the
ineetinir of the New England Order of
Protection a jolly party of friends walk
ed into the room where Mr. and Mrs.
(lowland were and F. li. Mudgett intro
duced as spokesman V. A. lioyce.
The latter made a very eloquent speech
in which he called attention in a pleas
ing manner to the ocsasion which had
brought the company together and then
introduce Mr. mid Mrs. (lowland, and
in behalf of their many friends present
he told them that it had been thought a
lilting linn! to present them with some
tokens of the esteem, love and affection
in which they were held. He called at
tention to the interest which the recipi
ents had always taken in building up
the Order of Protection, and to the ap
preciation which their friends feel for
their labors. Jn commemoration of the
tenth anniversary of their married, life,
Mr. Boyce then presented them in be
half of their friends a beautiful mahog
any table and chair, and a costly parlor
lamp. Mr. 1 lowland then expressed
the gratitude of himself and wife in fit
ling terms ami (he remainder of the
evening was spent in a social manner.
Refreshments were served anil a veiy

with the foundation and other material
will bo worth $2000, M.t. Adams read
the contract which he had prepared and
every thing was satisfactory with one
exception. When Mr. Adams read a
clause in the contract which stated that
he was to receive 5 pi;r cent and travel
ing expenses, it made some oflhe alder
men opeii their eyes and one even jumped
from his chair when he heard the last
end of the paragraph.

his frionds at the dinner table the story
of a fino fish bo bad caught "Donald,"

laird rupoated the question. "Wed,"

No Word From Dewey.
London', May 5. Tho Eastern Tele

ley or any one else has received any
message from Dewey."
Washington, May 5. The rumor
was current here last night that the dis

ed an extensiyo cipher dispatch to Sec
retary Long and nearly everyone, con
gressmen included, believed the report
It has however been denied by every
ollicial who is in any position to know
anything about the matter, and it is al
most an assured fact that no word has
been received from Dewey as yet. The
boat which was reported to be in Mil's
bay is 40 miles front Hong Kong
and it would take some len days
by an overland route to convey
the ollicial despatches to the nearest
cable ofllec. There is a growing anx
iety here about tho position of Dewey
and arrangements are rapidly being
made for the conveyance of reinforce
ments from San Francisco to Manila.
10,000 men could be sent at short notice
but by the nearest calculation it would
take more than a mouth for them to
reach their destination in which time
Commodore Drwey may be in sore
need of assistance.

Spanish Dynasty Doomed.
London, May 5. A letter from Ma

Plans For Forward
Tamta, Flu., May 5. Col. Lawton of
Shaflic.'s staff has sailed for Key West.
It is believed he has gone to make a
map of Cuba and its surroundings in
preparation for an early movement
which is expected. There arc several
different plans possible as a movement
may be made upon Porto Rico when an
effort may be made to demolish Spain's
base of supplies in the vicinity of the
seat of war. A great deal depends on
whether Sampson's licet should meet
the Spanish squadron, for if Sampson
should destroy Ihe Spanish fleet the next
move would doubtless be into Cuba.
