The celebration was held alter the reelection of Capt. Paul Smith to be at the helm for another year. All arrangements were made in auvance. for there was no opposition to the popular and capable commander. Capt John Schaefer presided at the election in accordance with orders from head- quarters. The matter or nominating . 9 and balloting occupied but a few min utes After the installation of Captain Smith the company and a few invited guests adjourned from the A armory to the main hall of the Drill Shed. Here had been spread a long table. Tho sunnpr was a cood one and tne boys "fell to" with zest. After the meal came the smoking and the liquid rfrociPTits Th c jtoih! time lasted till nearly midnight. The first toast was to the President and the Republic. Lieutenant Colonel Soper, Adjutant General, responded for the commander-in-chief and the flag. The speaker reterrea to tne ciose relations which in the militia orgam nation existed throughout the body and on behalf of the President thanked the boys for their strict attention to duty and their fidelity at all times. For the sentiment "The Health of the While Regiment," Lieutenant Col onel MeLeod answered. He compli mented Captain Smith and Lieutenants Klemme and Fetter on the good show ing that Company A was able to make at ah times. He said the Regiment was in a healthy, satisfied condition and that this was largely due to coopera tion of all to the end that success might be achieved. Lieutenant Colonel MeLeod said that there were under consideration in headquarters a mini . . , ... v ,r, cm- oer oi pians ioi iue uut vice There was nresent a member ot the 4;,.. rtf Were lOaSieU JteiJItxiiutivc - - ivauai maue an fiuqui Bi'"u,'u address.

Mr. Kaeo said "Remember the Maine," and expressed the beiief that the First Regiment, N. G. H., would give a first-class account of itself if given the opportunity for Those who came to the dinner late and who were called upon for remarks were Colonel Fisher, Captain Ashley and G. A. Davis. Captain Smith made a good talk to the boys and presided during the evening. There was plenty of quintette club music and chorus singing. Captain Smith now enters upon his fifth term as commander of Campa.ny A. He went into the military as a private of this command in January. 1S93, and consequently was through bom the overthrow and '95 uprising. In May '93, Captain Smith became a corporal, in June was elected second lieutenant, in March of the following year first lieutenant and in May of '94 captain. For bis commissions he had passed creditable examinations and has one of the best drilled companies in the service. It has been the practice with Company A to go into camp for a few days once a year at its own ex pense. This training has been of much value. Police Court. In the Police Court Saturday fore- noon the case of Kan Ku for importing opium was set for May Itth, and that of a woman for profanity for the 18th. Keawe was fined $50 and costs for assault and battery on Kealoha. This was an aggravated case. In the evi dence it was brought out that Keawe went home drunk and tried to strangle a pet goat. His' grandmother rushed out and tri?d to remonstrate, but was thrown off the porch. The grandfather then came out and the same treatment was accorded him. After the case was over Saturday, native like, the old lady said: "I am so sorry for my boy. I wish he had not been arrested."

MADRID, May 5. At a Cabinet council today over which the Queen Regent presided the Premier, Senor S.in-n-iTn ex-nlained the war situation ft and reported the arrival at Porto Rico j of the steamer Alfonso XIII., having j on board, it is said, reinforcements of troops and a very valuable cargo in cluding ammunition and supplies. The Premier also announced the opening of the Cuban Parliament and the Queen Regent signed the resources bill. The Cabinet afterwards held another meet ing and deliberated upon the financial situation and measures taken and con templated to preserve public order in the localities where disturbances have occurred. Senor Dubose, secretary to Senor Polo, gave a lecture in Massey hall, Toronto, on the Cuban question. There was a large audience. He denied that the Cuban people had been over taxed or ill treated and said that the country was very prosperous and taxation light up to the time of the outbreak of the rebellion. He appealed for sympathy for the Queen Regent. MADRID, May 5. Considerable anx iety is expressed here as to the fate of Porto Rico. It is feared that Admiral Sampson's squadron has gone to seize San Juan, the capital of that colony, and the Spanish coal supply at that port. The Relai of Paris says negotiations are pending which will result in Great Britain favoring the United States if the other nations favor Spain by at tempting to stop the war before the United States has received satisfaction. Tne United States, it is said, has prom ised in return to capture the Canary Islands and cede them to Great Brit ain. The schooner Crown, Captain Line han, has been lost off St. John's Nfld., and her crew of 11 drowned. The cause of the wreck is not known. A mob of about 8,000 striking miners have made a tumultuous demonstra tion at Murira, capital of the Spanish province of that name, 30 miles from the port of Carthagena. They shouted "Death to the thieves," "Down with the taxes." A force of troops prevent ed the rioters from moving on the port of Carthagena. A number of men were wounded. It was announced in the Spanish Cortes that there will shortly be pub lished a decree forbidding the export of wheat. RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING. The supply of the "Celebrated Seat tle Bock Beer" is rapidly disappearing in town. The lovers of this nutri tious spring beverage can obtain it for a limited time at the Criterion Saloon. Ahead!
