There will be an election for officer
in threo of the companies of the regi
ment this week. The first of these
will occur in Company A tonight. This
company will elect a captain and first
and second lieutenants to fill tbe va
cancies caused by the expiration of
terms of service of Captain Ivlward E.
L'liaso, First Lieutenant Arthur H
Lee and Second Lieutenant Frederick
V. Stillwell, Captain Chase and
Lieutenant Lee, by reasons of business
cares, have signified their determina
tion to retire from active military life.
This leaves Lieutenant Still well the
only remaining officer of the three who
have for livo years by their intelli
gence, energy and military knowledge
made Company A. famous llitougiioat
the state as the very best company in
the National guard of Pennsylvania.
It is a serious undertaking for any of.
fleer to assume tho captaincy of such a
company as A, with its marvelous und
will m-rite.i record. It is a matter of
record that from the date of its organ
Izttion it ha never taken n downward
courso. From l77 to 1894 it
has forged ahead under the
leadership of aucb distinguished
officer as lloysoo, Knapp, Watres,
Mattes ami Chase, until today it stand
the peerless military company in the
state If not in the United States. Each
of the above oliicers did his share to
bring the company up to a high stand
urd of (IHeitnOfi but it remained for
Captain Chase to bring the company
up to tho very highest notch of effici
ency and discipline. To till the place
made vacant by Captain Chase requires
a man of nerve, intelligence and brain.
He must be a disciplinarian of un
doubted courage aud a drill master
that tliouroiiglily understands the drill
regulations and can exemplify them
intelligently. Lieutenant Stilwell,
First Sergeant Cox and Sergeant Conk
lln have been mentioned as candidates
to succeed Captain Chase. Major C.C
Mattes has been detailed to conduct
cu'TAiN BOOKWBUnl suoC'K;sott.
Tho second electiou of the week will
occur in Company H tomorrow even
ing. This electiou will bs to till the
office of captain, made vacant by the
expiration of term of Bervice of Captain
William U. Rockwell. There is uo
captaiu in the regiment that com
mands more respect from hi company
than dots Captain Rockwell, every in
dividual member respects and admires
blm. lie can succeed liims.'If without
opposition, as be is the unanimous
choice of his company for re election.
It is a qucstioti-if any other officer in
the regiment can captain company M
us successfully as does Captain Rock
well. It is a company of peculiar char
acteristics, of which modesty i one of
the most prominent. It doe not make
much noife nor endeavor to Httract at
tention, but when it come to
drill, inspection or any mili
tary duty it is always found
in the front rank. The
members of Company H are n
steady set of gool fellows nnd are a
conservative lot of hard plodders, who
take pride in their company's record
and have never yet been known to
shirk from duty. It is a matter of
regimental regret that there is a pos
sibility of Captain Rockwall, owing to
business pursuits iu New York state,
not accepting the captaincy for another
term. Hd is one of the bost officer of
the line. His company holds the im
rortnnt position of right of the Second
Imttalion. In battalion drill for him to
get rattled or confused is almost impos
sible. His absence from the right of
the battalion would- bs indeed a serious
loss.uot only to the Second battalion, but
the entire regiment. The Thirteenth
cannot spare him any more than can his
company. He has boon in commission
fifteen years aud it is to be hoped he
can see his way clear to again accept
captaincy of the company.
In the event of Captain Rockwell's
declination the company could do no
better than elect Liontenaut E D. Cor
win to the captaincy. He is an intelligent
and tried officer anil wil fill the position
with crodit and houor. Adjutant Mil
lar has been mentioned for the office in
the event of Captain Rockwell' not
accepting a re-electiou. While the ad
jutant fully appreciate' the honor he
positively declines to be a candidate
He hope that Captain Rockwell will
necayf. but in the'uvent of bim not do
ing so trusts the company will not go
outside of its own membership for a
captain. Majjr lieorge H. Whitusy
n,i been detailed to conduct this elec
tion. Kl.fci TioN IN COMPANY l.
The third election of the week will
occur in Company I) for a second lieu
tenant to fill the vacancy caused by the
death of the lamented L. I Seeley.
Sergeant Stokes, tbe efficient first ser
geant of the company, and Corporal
(libbons. n deserving npa-rtom mission
ed officer, are candidates for the office.
Captain M. Barnard Ima been detailed

Iuquir at Prank Meyer's oflloe
During the past fsw week the
mauagers of traveling theatrical com
panies have bad unpleasant experi
ences in several of the counties of this
state through the efforts of conntv
treasurers to collect a liceuse fee of sf.V)
under the provisions f of the act of 184")
and tbe subsequent amendment of 1851,
This law has during tiio greater part
of the time that it has he -n iu exist
ence, remained n dead letter on the
statute books of the state. In the book
of instructions issued by the auditor
general's department for the year l'.M.
the matter has been brought to the at
tention of the county treasurers of the
state reminding them tbat it is their
duty to colltct this theutrical license
from every traveling theatrical com
pany. The law says that a license may
be issued bv any county treasurer, good
In any p:irt of the state for a year, for
l,0i)0. A county license in Phildel-
phi co-its 300, Allegheny $300, and
the other counties of the state $ j0. But
here the language of the act is some
what ha.y, as it doss ntt clearly state
whether the $50 shall bs taxed for each
performances or for a county license
good for oue year.
JCDOK DOTY'i DECISION.
This law was brought to the atten
tion of Judge Doty, of Westmoreland
county, by a test ease heard daring the
August term of last year. That learned
judge iu hi opinion declared "tlijit in
any county of the commonwealth
outside of Philadelphia and Allegheuy,
the theatrical license is to b paid by
the tronps giving the exhibition and
cannot be assessed against the building
iu which the exhibition is given." Tbat
settled the disputed point a to whether
the license should be paid by the com
pany or tbe house, which was the issue
raised in the ease.
Iu 181)0 County Treasurer Campboll
collected a liceuse fee of $59 from the
Academy of Music in tins city, the
Academy of Music aud tho Opjra
house in Carbondale, but in April of
18'Jl, by directions of the state traas
urnr, be refunded the money, it having
been decided tbat the hous should not
pav the license.
The haze that envelopes tho languas
of the act when it speaks about a tax
of :'t'3U being levied iu the counties out
side of Philadelphia and Allegheny,
has been somewhat dispelled by the
Supreme court, which has declared
that when a theatrical company pays a
license fee of $50, it is allowed to give a
performance in any portion of the
county where the license is obtained
for one year.
COUNTY TREASURER Wll.I. ALT.
County treasurer Powell was seen
by n Tribune reporter yesterday and
said that be had been considering tho
ioense matter, but before he would
make an effort to collect the fee be
would ask tho attorney general of the
state to give him explicit directions as
to what is the proper interpretation to
give the law and now far he will be
justified in going in order to collect the
$o0. After receiving these instructions
be will act in accordance with them,
W. S. Cleveland, the manager of
Cleveland minstrels, which gave a
performance at the Academy of Music
Saturday night was requested to pay
the lieenss when his company exhib
ited at E iston, but ho positively re
fused to pay $o0 or any portion of it
He unid to a TRIBUNI reporter Saturday
night that rather than pay the license
he would move his company out of the
state. Ho said tbat many theatrical
managers now refuse to make contracts
for performance in Pennsylvania
theaters until such time as the matter
of license is definitely settled. The en
forcing of the law will practically close
nearly every show house outside of
Philadelphia and Allegheny or compel
the local m inagars to form and main
tain stock companies.
ATTORNEY OENERAI.'S VIEWS.
Attorney General llenssl has ac
cepted tbe decision of Judge Doty ns
the direct rule be must follow. Against
this course of action no end of nrotests
have arisen, as the sUte liceuse fea
ture, if carried out, will work a revo
lution in present method.
Attorney General Hsn-1 in an inter
viow said: "Judge Doty holds that
the net of 1815 n quir s a license to be
paid for each thoatrical exhibition, and
this Is hi decision in the K--eler-Currau
case, brought before the Westmoreland
county court last April ns a test case

letter of the decision:'' was asked of
