The parlors and hall at the Y. M. C. A. guilding are at all times attractive, but especially were they so yestertlay in their New Year decorations of maile vines entwined about fern leaves and palm tree fronds. Guests were coming and going from 12 until 2, among whom were many strangers. Wray Taylor, B. F. Beard more, E. Benner and others received at the door and, with a happy New Year's greeting passed the visitor on by potted palms, beneath bowers of green min gled with brighter colors into the lib rary room for the time converted into a reception room where a committee consisting of W. C. Weedon, president of the Association, and .wife, Mr. Clive Davies and wife, and Assistant Secre tary Brock and wife welcomed the guests. The decorations were a special fea ture of the occasion, receiving many favorable comments from the visitors, being arranged with good effect by Mr. Wilmorth, a visiting artist, and several assistants. In one end of the room some specimens of work done by the class in bookkeeping were shown, bringing before the people the impor tant educational work being carried on by this institution. Some creditable work by the class in mechanical -drawing was exhibited in one of the parlors, a neat drawing by A. J. Clapham being the best. Along the stairway leading to the banquet hall was a hedge of green and above were leaves and vines woven into fancy designs. Secretary and Mrs. Coleman stood at the head of the stair way and graciously welcomed all com ers. Ushers provided the guests with a place at table, when the ladies took charge and served a luncheon pleasing to the most delicate taste and thor oughly satisfying the hunger. There was an abundance of everything, the committees having done their work well. On the stage, in a setting of palms, the Kamehameha Mandolin and Guitar Club played. The music con tinued throughout the feast and many lingered about, listening. Among those present were President Dole, Chief Justice Judd, Attorney General Smith, Postmaster-General Oat, Lieut. Col. Soper, Captain Taus sig, U. S. N Prof. Alexander, Senator J. A. McCandless and Prof. Scott. All of the pastors of the city were in at tendance.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Cooke threw open their pleasant home on King street, to the young people of the Portuguese Mission. As heretofore Mr. and Mrs. Cooke not only say "I wish you a happy New Year," but they do all in their power toward making the year begin pleasantly for tjiese young people in whom their in terest and affection is unfailing. After a social hour on the lawn with games, the merry party partook of ice cream and cake. Then all went into the parlors and sang some of the old hymns of which they are so fond. Dr. Lane favored the company with an ap propriate New Year talk. Before de parting ail thanked Mr. and Mrs. Cooke for affording them such a pleasant af ternoon. In the course of the afternoon Mr. Bowen, the beloved superintendent of the Sunday school, and Mrs. Bowen called and wished all a very Happy New Year. Mr. J. B. Atherton also looked in upon the party with his New Year greetings. Japanese Gets Off. The prosecution has for the present dropped the case against the Waialua Japanese charged with the murder of his wife, whose dead body was found near a cane field a couple of weeks ago. The case has been an interesting one so far and it will be heard of again in time. There had been placed about the husband a strong cord of circum stantial evidence and the prosecution had figured on using some alleged con fessions. When the witnesses to whom it was believed admissions had been made were placed on the stand they swore that what they had said about the case and the defendant to others was entirely untrue. The accused Jap anese was released and has returned to the plantation. Under the Quartermaster Inde pendent of Other Departments. Two Home Ports. NEW YORK, Dec. 17. A special to the Sun from Washington says: Regu lations fcr the organization and admin istration of the army transport service have been completed by the board of officers appointed for that purpose and approved by the Secretary of War They provide that the army transport service be organized as a special branch of the Quartermaster's Depart ment of the army, for the purpose of transferring troops and supplies be tween the United States and such over sea garrisons and military commands as shall be authorized. The service is to be subject to the supervision of the Quartermaster-Gen eral, and will be conducted by its own officers and employes, and is to be in dependent of the administration of other branches of the army adminis tration. There will be two home ports or headquarters for the service, one at New York, for the Atlantic traffic, and one at San Francisco, for the Pacific traffic.

Each home port will be under a general and assistant superintendent, medical superintendent, marine super intendent and assistant marine super- ntendent. There is to be a general superintendent, who will be charged with the entire administration of the service, and will receive his general in structions from the Quartermaster General. Medical superintendents and ransport quartermasters and commis saries, who are all to be officers of the army, and will be assigned by the Sec retary of War. A transport surgeon for each vessel will be provided by the Surgeon General. All other officers will be appointed by the general super- ntendent. WASHINGTON MONUMENT. No Objection to Placing a Memorial in Westminster. LONDON, Dec. 9. It is understood that the Prince of Wales has spoken ap provingly of the proposed monument to George Washington to be placed in Westminster Abbey. Several members of the Anglo-Amer ican League recently approached Dean Bradley of Westminster Abbey, sug gesting that a national monument to Washington should be erected in the Abbey. The memorialists urged that the eelings which had in the past existed n England against Washington had ong since disappeared, and that a movement for a monument at the pres ent juncture would be a great influence for good, as -tending to cement the friendly relations growing up between the two nations. The Dean was also reminded of the memorials to two American poets Longfellow and Lowell which are al ready in the Abbey. The Dean there upon agreed to consult with others and o consider the matter fully. It is said the Dean had the matter brought to the attention of the Prine of Wales, who regarded the project fav orably. A GREAT BRIDGE. At the annual general meeting of the stockholders of the Quebec Bridge Company, held in Quebec recently, it was decided to call for bids at once for the building of the bridge across the St. Lawrence at Chaudiere, five miles above Quebec. The bridge will be a cantilever structure, 3,310 feet Jong, in cluding approaches, wTith a main chan nel span of 1,400 feet and 150 feet above high water. The estimated cost is between $3,000,000 and $4,000,000. This project, which, besides the bridge, includes a railway to connect the rail ways on both sides of the St. Law rence, has been under way bout ten years. It is the intention of the com pany to have its own independent line to give all the railways access to the city of Quebec. The railways that will derive benefit from the bridge are, on the north shore, the Canadian Pacific and the Quebec and Lake St. John, and on the south shore the Grand Trunk, the Intercolonial and the Quebec Central.
