The message was taken at great peril before United States troops landed in Cuba, and related to the co-operation ot the Cuban, and Amyi^sn forces. Charles Town Society In New York. The eleventh annual banquet and re union of the Charles Town Society of-flie City of New York was held last Saturday evening, at Hotel St. Denis. New York City, and was undoubtedly a great suc cess, there being about 100 members present. The new members, of which there were a number, were given the usual glad hand. The dinner was held in the old colonial dining room of the ho tel. which was beautifully decorated with flowers and southern vines tor the occa sion. Colored singers and banjo players furnished the music. Messrs. JJarvey N. Uorsey and A. Welles Stump had charge of the arrangements, and deserve mueh credit for the "manner in which every thing was carried out. The chief guest of the Society was to have been Capt. George Baylor, of Charles Town, but he was unable at the last moment to attend, greatly to the regret of the Society. Among those present wa? Mr. Chares Broadway Rous?, who has missed but one dinner -..ince the Society was formed some eleven years ago, aud he received a very cordial greeting from the members. Mr. Rouss has the welfare of the Society at heart, and has done a great deal to ward making it a success. The marvelous growth of the Society, which now num bers isS members, all from Jefferson county, has aroused considerable iuterest among New Yorkers, and the few invited guests from New York City expressed it as almost beyond belief that so large a number of young men could come from such a small town as Charles Town. A prominent New York City official re marked in a speech : " I am surprised at the remarkable success achieved by you young men in this city; and the old tov,-n, I which you have talked so much about thus evening, -should feel proud of you. I have no doubt she does." -* The beautiful menu cards, especially n up for the occasion, greatly to the l 0f all the members, did not arrive e hotel in time. The menu con tanled an original poem by Hon. D. B, Lucas, also an engraved steel scene of Charles Town dr.ing the blizzard last winter. During the course of the dinner a picture was taken of the members as they sat at the table. After dinner the speechmaking began, and the toasts were announced by the president, as follows: "An address," the President; " Our So ciety," Hon. W. D. Washington; "Our Quest," Dr. R. B. Logie; " Expansiou," J. Harry Beall; "Do You Mind," a poem, Anson A. Gard ; " Perils of the Nation," C. A. Mountjoy. Speeches were also made by Messrs, Bassett W. . Mitchell. Julian A. Ingle, Turner A. B=all. H. S. McKnight. Charles Broad way Rouss. Hon. Fred. Ware and others. Many feeling references to the old home by the speakers met with a hearty re Sionse from the members. ".At a iate hour the annual election of officer- took place. Dr. R, B. Logie was elected president. Rev. Dr. John H. Lo gie Vice President, and Mr. Peter Win chester Rouss Secretary ?nd Treasurer. fact Rouss, whose broad jrosity has so rapeatc learts of our fire laddi wr community,- has a^ lis great good will towards the Inde pendent Fire Company ami citizens of Charles Town, in the contribution of a :bcck for $500 for Ihe Rouss birfjiday. banquet to be Riven by the Independent "ompany.-on the 10th of February next, rhe checlji.was received by Mayor Washi ngton, enclosed inthe following~lette'r: - New York City, Jan. 4, 1900. honorable George Washington", Mayor, Cbafjes Town, W.

Mr. Editor.?In the issue of the Shep herdstown Register of January 4th, 1900, I see my name mentioned as among the prospectiue candidates on a sheriffalty ticket.

Very respectfully yours, B, F. Lanudon. ?O 1 , . A Correction. Mr. Wm, W. Rouss in the following] furnishes the Spirit of Jefferson a cor rection of some misstatements of Gilsou Willets in regard to his father, the late Peter H. Rouss: " Mr. Willet says that my brother, C, B. R., was in prison when father died, and that he (C. B. R.) said he would pay I father's debts first after his release. This is untrue in two respects. First my brother was conducting a very successful business on Broadway when father died in 1S87, he having been released from prison in 1S7G, eleven years before father died. Then again he is in error in sav ing that father left any debts unpaid at the time of his death. He owed no one J a cent when he died, and left his valuable property unincumbered to his heirs.? Then again he says Mr. Erastus Wy man got my brother's release from pris-1 on. Just the reverse of this is true. It was my brother v I10 went bail for Wy-1 man and secured his release from Ludlow Wm. W. Rouss." That Mr- C. B. Rouss would gladly have paid any debt of his father's as far as in.his power, or that either of his brothers would have done the same, there is not the shadow of doubt. - The fact, however, is that the senior Rouss left a handsome unencumbered estate?one of the finest in the Shenandoah Valley?and needed no aid from either of his sons. Writers of lives of Mr. C. B. Rouss seem to spring up like mushrooms, and their statements are often wide of the mark in point of being correct, although there are few meu in the present age of whom as much of merit can be well and truthfully ftrdova Candles Nothing el so adds no much 1 to thu charm of the drawing I room or boudoir a? tho softly radt- 1 nnt llcbt from (JORDOVA Candles.

Evans, in the prime of life and the zenith of his usefulness to call him from our midst, and whereas Brother Evans has for manyyears been one of the most ear nest and influential members of our Lodge and a zealous worker in the cause ?of Masonry, and has been esteemed as an honorable and trustworthy citizen; there fore.. . Resolved, That while we miss the help ful presence of our beloved brother and will sorrow in that we shall see his face no more jn the flesh, but hope to see him in Heaven, yet we do not doubt the wis dom of God in removing our beloved brother from our midst, and will bow in humble submission to His will.

R. Roberts, James W. Strider, Rev. A. H. Green. Whereas, God in His all-wise provi deDce has seen fit to enter the tyled recess of our Lodge room at a time when we least expected, and cut down in the vigor of manhood our beloved brother, S. D. Engle, and we are called upon once more to assemble together as Masons in the temple of mourning, sad though it be, to pay the last tribute of respect to his mem ory. Resolved, That while we the members of Triluminar Lodge would humbly ac knowledge the hand of God in this sore affliction and would submissively bow to His decree, yet we cannot but deeply deplore our loss and feel how hard it will be to refill the place left vacant by our deceased brother. Resolved. That in the death of Brother Kngle our Lodge has lost an efficient member, his family a devoted husband and loving father, and the community a respected citizen. Resolved, That the. lodge tender its heartfelt sympathy to the family of our deceased brother in their sad afflic tion, that our hall shall be draped, and the members wear the usual badge oi mourning thirty days, and that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family of our deceased brother and be publislu d in the county papers.
