Weyler who was in command for a time during the 10 years war and failed absolute ly where Campos afterwards overcame the rebellion. Campos ir universally conceded to be the ablest of Spain's military commanders and where ho fails there is littlo hope for any one's suc ceeding and the only reason for his displacement is that he insists on con ducting the war on civilized principles while Wolver will ailupt the favorite Spanish policy of Imtcheriotf all the rebels he can capture which in the rirpspnt situation is nrcttv certain to intensify their determination to be free. The latest accounts represent them as having 72,000 men in the field and it could be 200,000 if thero wer sufficient arms. Spain is arranging to send 13,000 more troops in addition to the 123,000 already forwarded. Several more small battles are reported this week but without decUive results. Gen. Campos' comment on his re tail, in a statement to the X. V. World is the laconic one "Spain has lost the Americas because of the Spaniards themselves. " ' Children Cry for 1 Pitcher's Castoria. There is a deal of silly newspaper criticism of the Monroe doctrine de bate in the senate, not that both reso lutions before it are wrong, but on the ground that any discussion whatever of the subject is "needless," now that the Venezuelan tjuestion is to well in the way of settlement and that it is only placing a "chip on the shoulder" for difficulty and disturbance. This is the natural Wall street'view that grows j steadily more incapable of considering anything but the day's effect on stocks. But to the common-sense view, noth ing can be more desirable, more certain o avert trouble in the future, than to have it settled definitely just what the Monroo doctrine is, and how far we stand by it. W don't want any more cases where it can be said as Lord Salisbury did 11 few weeks ago that the doctrine is nothing but one man's ut terance, without sanction internation ally or even by pongressional enact ment. We don't want to go on with the assumption that it is a part of our American system, aud still have it open to dispute and denial in every case of its application, as to whether it is or not. It is only justice to our selves and the rest of the world alike that it be definitely formulated by the law-making power. The Annual Military Concert aud Ball Beautiful Decoration., Elab orate Toilettes, A Great Success A Column In which the Ladies are Interested. The Kstev Guard and Fuller Jiatturv scored another success Friday evening at their annual concert und ball. ' No pains had been spared to do the thing rignt as tne elaborate anu tasty deco rations in the Armory testified. Nat urally the national colors were exten sively used in the decorations. At the entrance to the hall a large portico naa Deen mint, niing wun ouve green draperies, while a large nag was sua nended above and an arch or incan descent lights was formed over that, Festoons of bunting were gracefully arranged from the ceiling to all parts of the nail, while nags 01 all nations could be seen betweeu. Draperies of white were used to good advantage along the sides of the hall and about the posts, giving the effect of private boxes. Shields, guns and swords were arranged along the sides of the gallery and directly opposito the entrance a platform had been built where were seated the First Regiment orchestra of six pieces which rendered an ex cellent concert from 8 until 'J o'clock. Following the concert came the grand march which was led by Capt J. Gray and Mrs. -Harry Kstey and it was a pretty sight as witnessed from the gal lery, the evening dresses of the ladies and the military uniforms of the gen tlemen producing a brilliant effect,.

Without a doubt the social triumph of the season and probably in all lirat- tleboro annals, was the dancing and card party which was given by Mr. and Mrs. Walter Chapin Carpenter at the Brooks House Wednesday evening. The parlor, reception and dining rooms which were used for the occasion were artistically and extensively decorated with Easter lilies, palm and tropical plants. In the parlor, the fire-place was banked with the aboro mentioned flowers, which were also placed in all the windows and arranged upon the piano in addition to a profuse supply of cut tiowers. The reception room perhaps elicited the largest share of admiration. Lilies, palms and- ferns were also used here and a table was set in tho center of the room where the guests could refresh themselves at any time during tho evening. The table decorations were simply beautiful ; ropes ot sniilax bordered tho table and reached from the ends to the chandelier, being caught at each end with boiuiuets of carnations. The center piece was a beautiful bouquet of hunter lilies which stood upon a mirror bordered with smilax and carnations which reflected the pretty sight. In the dining room which was used for dancing, opposite tho entrance.a stage was built for the orches tra, while Japanese lanterns were sus pended from all tho chandeliers and along the sides of the walls. A bower of laurel and evergreen was arranged in one corner where the guests could re fresh themselves with lemonade throughout the evening. Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter received their guests in the parlor, the reception lasting from S ::) to 9 o'clock, Lcit- singer's orchestra of five pieces render ing a concert in tho meantime. iYlrs. Carpenter was handsomely t attired in a bluck brocaded silk gown, with real ice and ostrich feather trimmings and wore English violets. At. H o clock the ball was opened bv Col. and Mrs. Geo. W. Hooker aud Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter and daucing was enjoyed until 10 o'clock when ali repaired to the parlor where an elegant repast was served. L'pon returning to the dancing hall the guests were all surprised and delighted at the brilliant sight which met their gaze. Iheelec tric lights had been extinguished and replaced with innumerable Japanese lanterns which dispensed a rich tut' I low, light adding greatly to the even ing costumes of the ladies and making it a veritable fairy land scene. The lady guests were as follows: Mrs V H Minor white figured silk. Mrs P K White, black satin. Mrs A W Childs, white and blue organdie, white rosea- . . -,. ..- . Mrs Frank Puluau, lavender silk.
