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. Those who had charge of the various

fully four hundred 'people were served

A New Year ( atherins.
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 have a
full equipment of officers, and be pro
vided with terminal facilities, includ-
ng wharfage for ships and storage for
reights. 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.
