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 the election, 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 to conduct this election. ( OltbFK OK GKNliUAt. INTEREST. Colonel Ripple issued the following order last Saturday.

A. building. 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 "Aud you propose to follow out the letter of the decision:'' was asked of Air. Hensel. "I have no other course to pursue was the attorney g-meral's reply.

E, Clarke or Patrick Golden will bave their names printed undsr the Demo cratic headline on the tickets that will be used in the Sixth ward at the Feb ruary election wsb argued beforo Judgs Edward on Saturday. Attor neys (,'omagys and Vaughau repre sented Mr. Clarke, while Attorneys Sera;,-'' and Heedv looked after Mr. Golden's interests. The trouble dates back to a Demo cratic caucus held in the Sixth ward on Deo. 10 It was called by Mr. Manuix, city committeeman from the ward, and was to have been held in the school - house. School Controller Mahon or dered ths citizens out, and the cancus was held in the bouse of Mr. McDon- ougl:, directly opposite. The contend ing factions had their representatives ou the board and Clarke and Regan were declared tho nominees. The following Tuesday evening Mr. Golden called u caucus at Ilia place. i'his was the caucus that a TBIBUNI reporter failed to tiud. Mr. Golden' frieuds aver, however, that the caucus wua held and that it, was strictly Dem ocratic. I he certificate of nomination was signed by George P. Duliigg and Johu P. Mahon a officers of the caucus. Mr. Clarke filed his certificate Dec. 19, while Mr. Golden's was not filed till Jan. 8 Both claiming to be Dstno crats, the courts will have to pass upan the right of either to the coveted position. Many witnessas wire sworn on both sides. D. W. Vauzhan and M F. S indo, vice-chairman and secretary repectivoly of the Demo cratic city committee, shed some light on the rules of the party while many Sixth ward citizens, represent ing both sides, gave testimony in be half of their candidate's interest. Judge Elwards gave the case very close attention, nnd lie will hand down an opinion in the case today, ARRESTED AS A PICKPOCKET. A Gay Frenchman in the Ileshs of the Law.

After the ceremony had been performed Mrs. Shaffer looked admiriugly atjiier daughter and then at her sou-in -law. She seemed pleased with the anion. THE tlKIPB IS ATTRACTIVE. Mrs. Sing is quite an attractive young woman. She is a blonde, and whenever she appear on th street is stylishly and becomingly dressed. In some way Charley Sing, who is an Americanized Cliiuamau, and much better looking than the majority of bis countrymen, succeeded in winning her affections. Sh sesms very much de voted to him. Th festivities that fol lowed the wedding wre very quietly conducted and yesterday Charley re turned to his duties in the laundry, He is far too practical to allow such a common place affair as his marriage, eveu with a pretty white girl, to in terfere with his business duties.
