The War Department has received the records of two Interesting court-martial cases In the Philippines. Robert Grassa, a native, was tried on charges of murder and violation of the oath of allegiance. Grassa was a lieutenant colonel of insurgents. He surrendered himself to the American mili tary and voluntarily took the oath of alle g.ance in the summer of limo, but held put and kept under his control and in conceal ment some twenty Mausers and Reming tons and ?iito cartridges, with the intent of using Jhein at some future lime against the Vnited States. It also appeared that Gras ea planned the murder of a native named Aeosta. who had formerly been an insur gent soldier under his command, and who was friendly to the Americans. Grassa or dered Acosta to repair to a certain house in the barrio of San Felipe, ostensibly for the purpose of taking charge of some rifles, bat in fact to be killed by natives stationed at the house with rocks and clubs. Acosta was suspected of having given Information to the American soldiers which led to the discovery and confiscation of some of the concealed m tuitions of war. A military commission sentenced Grassa to l>e hanged, bat General Chaffee o?minuted the sentence to imprisonment at hard labor for life. The other case w.;s that of Cosine Licop, a native, charged with murder, kidnaping and robbery. It appeared that Licop was a member of ;i band of outlaws which en ticed from his home and killed a native named Lasaleta, cutting and stabbing him to death. Licop personally struck the vic tim with a bold. It also appeared that the same band seizt d and carried away against their will two native women and three na tive men. The motive for these crimes ap pears to have been suspicion that tiie vic tims win friendly to the Americans. In addition the outlaw band entered the house of a native woman and robbed it of a quan tity of rice, dried fish, sugar and cloth. Lit op was sentenced to be hangt>! and the Sentence \\;?s approved by Gen. Chaffee. EXCITING EOWLING MATCH. Clever Work on the Capital Bi. Alleys by Two Home Teams. Kn r since the bowling team ?>f the Blue Ridge ("lub disastrously defeated the rep resentative five ..f ihe Capital Bicycle Club the gentlemen representing the latter or ganization havt had to stand all sorts of jibes and taunts as to their ability in the bowling line. As a result of this taunting the Capital Bi five, headed by Mr. McKln ley. have been <iubbed the "Good Old Has Been?" and were challenged by a team representing themselves as the "Newcom ers." The match came ofT last niglu on the alleys of the Capital Bicycle Club, before a large number of onlookers. The "Good < >ld Has Beens" were repre sented by J. W. McKinley, I ?r. Hills. C. J. Allen. D. E. McComb and Dr. Kicker. <>n the tr-aiu of the "Newcomers" were H. Taylor. T. A. Tonner. J. Welsseiihagen, 11. N. Low and George S. Derrick. Yhe evening's play developed the fact that "outsiders" m'.ght trim the "Good Old Ha? Beens," bul that there was nothing "at home" to take their measure. It was sim yly a walkover for the team headed by Mr. Kinley. The first game went to the "Has Beens" by the score of H48 to 743 for the "Newcomers;" the second game was a li- at "4:*, while the third also went to the "Has Beens," MCt to 71 *?. At the conclusion of the battle consld able guying was Indulged in by both teams, the "Newcomers" getting a "leetle" the worst of the argument. Other matches are fcure to follow and the end Is not yet. On th? last frame Mr. Low complained of a sprained wrist and retired, but his com rades insinuated that he showed the white feather on account of the way the splits Wire coming his way. Mr. Mattingly took [Mr. Low's place and did his best to re trieve the day, but his opponent beat him out by three pins. The "Good Old Has Heens" certainly bowled in fine form last right, and as a result of their work will go Into the prospective match njith the Blue Jtidge team with renewed confidence. ? A vacant frame house in Burrville was destroyed by Are about 12:15 o'clock this fciorning. The house belonged to William |)aden of 1432 N street northwest. What Caused the fire Is not known. <S DINNER TO PRINCE Splendid Decorations at the White House. COMPANY AT TABLE PRESIDENT PRESENTED WITH PORTRAIT AND STATUETTE. Toasts Offered by the President and His Royal Guest?Expxessions of Mutual Good Will. The state dinner last night at the White House was spread in the east room in the midst of an elaborate electrical and floral decoration. The electric effects were, how ever, in the ascendant, the ceiling being canopied in green, in which red. white and blue lights gltanud. There were garlands stretjehing from the chandeliers to the side wall}., the arches had a looped garland with pendant balls of lights and hundreds more gleamed over the mantels, also veiled in green vines. Anchors and stars also were conspicuous features of the electrical dis play on ihe top of the curtains, and over the doorway. The triple east window was curtained with two flags, a German and the stars and stripes. The lights in the chandeliers were turned low, so that the beauty of the electric ornamentation could be seen to advantage. The east mantels were banked high with pink and white blossoms. T1 arrangement of the half circle table as to flowers and lights was rot changed from ito familiar primness. Ob long plaques of j ink primroses alternated with vases tilled with pink and white roses j and pink-capped candlesticks. The decora tions in the blue room were more abundant than usual, the mantels being banked with red roses, banded across the front with lilies of the valley. The ceiling was hung with vines ana clumps of plants were ar rang< d in the windows. The corridor had also a great many potted plants arranged in pyramids along its entire length. The open space in the east room left by the circling of the table, was broken by an other pyramid in circular form, topped with foliage plants and surrounded at the base with pots of pink primroses and azalea bushes. The table decoration was enhanced by the souvenir menu cards already described in The Star. The name cards bore the national emblem in gilt. The Dinner. The dinner of ten courses occupied about an hour in serving. The menu was selected by Mrs. Roosevelt herself, and was as fol lows: Marcobruner, *i?3. Huitres sur Coquille. Croutes panaehees. Sherry.

Prince Henry, when he arrived at the White House just before 8 o'clock, was ac companied by the German ambassador and Admiral Evans. He was at once escorted to the library, where the President with his wife and daughter were waiting to receive him. After the exchange of greetings Prince Henry presented to the President a large pastel portrait of himself in naval at tire, & statuette (bust) of the emperor and an autograph naval scale prepared by the emperor. Tbe bust ot tb? tmjitxQi iUow? him in uniform of the corps guard with eagle-tipped helmet. The Guests at the Table.

The name of-Senafc?r Martin of Virginia was originally on the list of those given out as guests at the dinner, but he de clined the invitation. Toasts Proposed. During the dinner the President proposed the health of the German emperor and the German people, saying: "We admire their great past and great present, and we wish them all* possible success in the future. May the bonds of friendship between the two peoples ever glow stronger." Following this toast Prince Henry arose, and addressing himself to the President, proposed a toast to himself and the people of the United States, accompanying it with an expression of good will and a hope for the continuation of friendly relations be tween the German and the American na tions. The President also proposed (lie health of "Our Guest, Prince Henry of Prussia," in these words: "In the name of the American people I greet you, and ext< rid to you our warmest i welcome and the assurance of our heartiest | good will." After the dinner the guests repaired to | the parlors, where for an hour or more they remained in social conversation. The prince chatted freely with the company, many of whom he had met during the day. At 10:40 the party elispersed. THE PRINCE'S DEPARTURE. He and His Party Left at Midnight for New York. Prince H< nry departed from Washington for New York at midnight. He was ac? ! companied by his suite. Baron von Hoi I leben, the German ambassador, and a num i l.er of the attaches of the legation accom panied the royal party to the depot. Prince Henry and party arrived at the j station shortly after 11 o'clock. A platoon J of cavalry preceded the 'carriage eontain I ing the prince and Baron von Holleben.

Prince Henry g&Y? expression last night i to his deep s?ose of appreciation of the j splendid rcceptaon accorded him at the ; national capital. This was done through | the medium of an yJfReial very near to his royal highnesst; who was asked to secure , from the prince his impressions of the i i-vi nts of the ffay. /This was communicat ! (d to Prince ilenry, who replied in terms j of the warmest approval for the many evidences of official and popular good will he had received since his arrival. "Prince Henry was particularly im pressed," said the official, "with the very sympathetic reception he received from President Roosevelt, and with the frank and open-heartt-d manner of your chief executive, which gave the most genuine assurance of sincerity and good will. He was gratified, too, with the kindly recep tion given him l>y the American public, as shown during his drives to the White House, the embassy and the Capitol. This was but another evldr nee of the friendly feeling of the American pcorle which he had already observed during his stay in New York. 1 can a?rure you that it give* his highness genuine pleasure to have aueh a warmth of greeting awaiting hhaa, and lie reciprocates to the fullest extent every expression of good will that has been fiven." Prince Henry at the Capi tol. GIVEN WARM WELCOME CORDIAL GREETING OF SPEAKER HENDERSON. Showed Much Interest in the Discus sions?Received the Represen tatives Personally. The visit of Prince Henry and his suite to the Capitol must have been not only a gratifying experience to the royal visitor on account of the warm and flattering re ception he received at both the House and Senate, and of the opportunity It afforded of meeting personally the leaders of both houses, but it must have been an extremely Interesting experience as well. The prince not only saw the houses of the American parliament at work, but in the Senate he witnessed one of those rare and intensely dramatic moments which come in that body occasionally at the conclusion of a great debate. The prince and his party in carriages, escorted by a troop of cavalry, and flanked on either side by a bicycle platoon of police, arrived at the eastern entrance of the Capi tol at 4 o'clock, exactly on schedule time. Prince Henry no longer wore the brilliant uniform and plumed chapeau in which he had appeared earlier In the day. He was a Admiral von Tirpitz. F*rrrtarv of tin- Girm.m Imperial Xary. attired in the simple <lnrk blue fatigue uni form of a German admiral, and wore the flat German naval cap of his rank. The members of his suite wore fatigue uniform and the German ambassador had exchanged his court dress fur a conventional frock suit. In the matter of gold lace and braid General Corbin and Admiral Evans, still in the splendor of full dress uniforms, far outshone the prince and his staff. At the Bronze Doors. The party was nut at the great bronze doors leading into the rotunda by a cjmmit tee from the House, consisting of Mr. Hitt of Illinois, Mr. Dins more of Arkansas and Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio, chairman of the committee having the arrangements for the princess reception in charge. Brief, cor dial greetings having; been exchanged, the prince and his party, under the protection of a half hundred police, were conveyed through solid walls of people packed in the rotunda and statuary hall to the room of Speaker Henderson in the rear of the House lobby. Here the Speaker, who was awaiting him, greeted the prince with a warm handshake as Mr. Hitt presented "his tojal highness. Speaker Henderson in vited the prince to be seated, while the Ger man ambassador made the other Introduc tions, and then in a few words formallv welcomed him. Welcomed by the Speaker. lour royal highness,'' he said, turning to the prince, who instantly arose, "it gives me very sincere pleasure, in behalf of the L nited States House of Representatives, to greet you with a cordial and heartfelt wel come, and it gives me all the greater pleas ure as you come representing, in an emi nent degree, that friendly feeling which exists between your nation and ours, and representing also the cordial feeling of the illustrious head of the German empire. When you are ready to go from here, we have made suitable provision for your ac commodation in the gallery, so that you can see the House of Representatives in session. When you have remained there a h ng*tn of time HgrfOHblc to you, a commit tte. consisting of Mr. Hitt. chairman of the committee on foreign affairs; Mr. Dinsmore also of that committee; General Grosvenor! chairman of the committee on arrange ments, will consult your pleasure as to what turther may be graiifying to you while at this end of the Capitol." In the House Gallery. The prince thanked the Speaker for his courtesy and without further ceremony the party proceeded to the gallery of the House, walking up the marble .stairs instead of using the elevator. An impressive sight met the gaze of the prince as lie reached the threshold. The surrounding galleries were crowded to the doors and below on the floor in the long concentric circles of the vast hall the members sat at their desks. His appearance at the door of the gallery caused an enthusiastic demonstra tion. No sooner had his tall, graceful fig ure been framed into the doorwav when a spontaneous outburst of applause swept floor and galleries. The prince paused, smiled through his blonde beard and ac knowledged the greetings with a slight bow. Then advancing with the German ambassa dor and Mr. Hitt on either side he descend ed to the place reserved for him in the front row of the gallery. Instantly every eye was upon him. He seemed perfectly oblivious of the fact that he was 011 exhibi tion at close range. Mr. Gilbert of Kentucky was addressing the House at the time on the Philippine question, although the diplomatic and con sular appropriation bill was under consid eration. Prince Henry seemed interested, listening attentively for several minutes to what Mr. Gilbert had to say and appearing much pleased at the hearty applause which followed the statement of the Kentucky member that the "Anglo-Saxon and German iaces are one." While Mr. Sims of Tennes see, who securcd the floor after Mr. Gil bert had concluded.was speaking the prince turned to. Mr. Hitt and in answer to his question the latter explained briefly the working of the cumbrous legislative ma chinery in the consideration of appropria tion bills. Reception of Representatives. The party remained about ten minutes In the gallery and then descended to the ways and means committee room, where a recep tion was to be held. The demonstration as the prince left the gallery was even more enthusiastic than when he entered. A number of members rose to their feet and cheered. The House at once adjourned to afford the members an opportunity to meet the royal visitor personally. The reception was very informal. The members formed a line and were presented by Mr. Hitt. The members of the prince's suite were ar- j ranged in a semi-circle behind them, but owing to the limited time were not pre sented to the members of the House. Prac tically the entire members of the House took advantage of the chance to meet Prince Henry, the democrats being seem ingly quite as anxious to enjoy the honor | M the republicans. Beveral \>l the mem-, Falne's Celery Compound Is the greatest nerve tonic ever given to the world. It Is particularly effective when the system Is gradually wasting away In old age. and when each separate organ Is predisposed to degeneration. Talne's Celery Compound renders a vigorous old age possible. It keeps the nervous system in a normal condition of health; it keeps the digestive organs in perfect condition; it keeps the liver and kidneys activc and in perfect hedlth; it nour ishes nerve fibers, as well as muscle fibers and other tissues; it keeps the nerve force strong; it aids digestion; it makes rich, pnre blood and gives strength and health to those in whom the ener gies of the human body have begun to wane. In the treatment of the infirmities common to old age, Falne's Celery Compound is the world's grentest remedy. William F. Snowden and his family were the first white settlers of the town that is now the city of Omaha. He has had a long and eventful life. Ills trade was that of a brlekmaker. lie fought with the army of the North from 1861 to 1864. He had previously seen service in the Mex ican War in the forties. He has held many local offices of trust, and there is no better known man In Nebraska today. "It gives me great pleasure,"* he wrote in a letter on Oct. 11 last, "to attest the good quali ties of Falne's Celery Compound. I have used it for years, and it has never failed to help me. While I am perhaps the oldest resident of this city, I am in good health. 1 have never found it necessary to take any other medicine." Nothing has ever approached l'aine's Celery Com pound in its power of building up weakened nerve tissues and giving strength to the tired body. In severe cases of persistent headaches, dyspepsia, neuralgia and sleeplessness, due to nervous feeble ness, Faine's Celery Compound has a record of rapid and lasting cures that embraces every city and town in the wide sweep of the United State?. Mrs. Emyle Hyde Grinnell, at the age of i*9 years, writes to the proprietors of Falne's Celery Compound: "I can recommend Faint's Celery Compound to bers had their children with them, and one or two were accompanied by their wives. Mr. Graham of Pennsylvania was the first to shake hands with the prince, who gave each member in turn a smile and word of friendly cordiality and firm grasp of the hand. Mr. Williams of Mississippi and Mr. Wachter of Maryland exchanged a few remarks with the prince in German. Mr. Grow of Pennsylvania, the* venerable ex-Speaker, was one of those in whom the prince showed a special interest, after he had been informed by Mr. Hitt that the Pennsylvania!! had presided over the House fifty years ago. Escorted to the Senate. Just as the reception, which lasted scarcely more than ten minutes, was con cluded the Senate committee, consisting of Senators Cullom of Illinois. Lodge of Mas sachusetts and Morgan of Alabama, ap peared, and after being presented escortod the prince and his party to the Senate. In crossing to the other end of the Capitol the party again moved through a solid mass of people, congregated in the rotunda, and there was much handclapping as he passed. The prince was interested in every thing. remarking upon the polished marble columns in statuary hall, the great historic paintings in the rotunda and the frescoes in the corridors. Through the marble room in the rear of the Senate he was escorted to the richly gilded chamber of the Vice President, and there Senator Frye of Maine, the President pro tempore of the Senate, greeted him and the members of his suite. No formal remarks were made on either side. The members of the prince's party were escorted by Gen. Corbin to the diplomatic gallery, but Prince Henry and Ambassador von Holleben were ushered di rectly into the Senate chamber. Excitement on the Floor. The prince's first view of the Senate of the United States hardly could have been more dramatic and thrilling. The chamber was brilliantly illuminated from above, the overhanging galleries were thronged to suf focation, every senator was in his seat, the sides of the chamber were fringed with representatives drawn thither by the news of the fierce conflict that was waging, and on the floor the youthful senator from Texas. Mr. Bailey, was hotly engaged with several of the older leaders on the republi can side over the rights of the two sena tors from South Carolina, who are in con tempt of the Senate, to vote on the Philip pine bill. The excitement at the moment was so great that even the entrance of a foreign prince, unwonted as it was, could hardly divert attention from the great de bate which was in progress. Senator Frye, with the prince at his side, mounted the rostrum and invited him to be seated. The senators on the floor and spectators in the galleries had arisen at his appearance, but there was no audible demonstration. He took a seat beside the side of the President pro tempore and Senator Frye resumed the gavel, which he had yielded to Senator Hoar, and the debafe proceeded. With only a few words of explanation from Mr. Frye the prince seemed to under stand the situation, lb- watched the scene keenly as the young Texan tried the mettle first of one adversary and then of another. The two South Carolina senators, of whose The Chinese Minister. Calling on Frluei* Henry. encounter last Saturday the prince was fully advised, sat on the right of Mr. Bai ley, with only a single chair, occupied by Representative Jackson of Kansas, between them. The prince reveral times glanced at them, but appeared far ir.ore interested in the question at issue than the personality of those it affected. For fully twenty min utes he sat completely engrossed by the scene before him. At last Ambassador von Holleben, who sat below him at the clerk's desk, suggested it was time to go, where upon the prince thanked Senator Frye and arose. Senator Frye interrupted the debate with a rap of his gavel. The senators in stantly stood up while the people In tl\e galleries craned their nceks. Then as the prince descended the steps and stood for an instant bowing his acknowledgments ere he took his departure the galleries broke into applause. It had been the intention of the Senate to give the prince an informal every one. It has been my health preserver durlnf the last few years.
