All of the CO members of Company
A. X. G. H., were out on Saturday
night lor a nign jinKS or uiai com
mand. 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

and balloting occupied but a few min

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

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

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."

Washington has disposed of two im

1 bill extending the homestead laws
j and providing for certain railway
j rights of way in the district of Alaska,
as amended by the Senate and agreed
upon in conference, was passed. The
labor measure, providing for arbitra
tion of disputes between employes and
certain common carriers, a bill which
has received very wide endorsement
by the labor organizations throughout
the country, received the approval of
the House.
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!

and other Alaska places

A Model Plant is not complete with

with small engines.
Why not generate your power from
one CENTRAL Station? One gener
ator can furnish power to your Pump,
Centrifugals, Elevators, Plows, Rail
ways' and Hoists; also, furnish light
and power for a radiu3 of from 15 to

Electric Power being used, saves the
labor of hauling coal in your field, also
water, and does away with high-priced
engineers, and only have one engine to
look after in your mill.
Where water power Is available It
costs nothing to generate Electric
