The annual dinner given by the United Hunt Club to the farmers in the Taita district who have allowed the members of the club to run over their grounds, was held in the Travellers'' Rest Hotel last evening, and proved a very successful affair. There was a large attendance, including a number of club members, who drove out in one of Lane''s brakes. As the weather was very fine, the drive out and back was thoroughly enjoyed The room in which the dinner was laid was decorated with ferns and flowere, and Mrs. Guilford served up a really capital repast. In the absence of the Master of the Hounds (Mr. H. D. Crawford), the chair was taken by Mr. D. G. A. Cooper, the Deputy-Master, who was supported on his right by Dr Purdy, and on his left by Dr. Newman, M.H.R. for the Hutt. Mr. D. R. Caldwell was in the vice-chair.
The toast of "The Queen" was drunk with musical honours.
The Chairman, in proposing the health of the farmers of the Taita district, said the club was very much indebted to the farmers for their kindness in allowing the huntsmen to run over their grounds. Mr. Milne, in replving, said that he had been 50 years in the Taita. He described the appearance of the district when he took up his residenco there, and gave some interesting reminencence of the early days. He had never met with a more liboral lot of people than the original purchasers under the New Zealand Company, and he was sorry to say that none of them had done well from a financial point of view. The speech was a capital one, and frequently sent all present into roars of laughter.
Mr. Reuben King gave the toast of "The United Hunt Club."
The Chairman, in acknowledging the compliment, expressed a hope that the farmers of the Taita would join in the club''s meets.
The health of Mr. R. Roake, the Huntsman, was proposed by Mr. F. Dyer, who referred to that gentleman''s qualities as a genuine sport.
Mr. Roake, in replying, said that he had never been in a district where farmers were so kindly disposed towards huntsmen as the Taita settlers. He expressed a hope that before long the club would abolish the drag hunt, and hunt game.
The remaining toasts were — "Absent Friends," proposed by Mr. C. L. Cuningham; " The Club Secretary, Mr. Joseph Myers," given by Dr. Gillon; "The Legislature" proposed by Mr. Milne and responded to by Dr. Newman; "The Ladies," proposed by Mr. W. W. Cox and acknowledged by Mr. J. F. Mills; "The Press," proposed by Dr. Newman; "The Hostess," proposod by the Vice-Chairman; "Ladies of the Hunting Field," proposed by Mr. H. Saunders, and replied to by Mr. Hawke; and "The Chairman" proposed by Mr. Milne.
Songs, recitations, and musical selections were given during the evening, the contributers being Drs. Purdy and Gillon. Messrs F. Dyer, W. Wakeford Cox, T. M Wilford, C. L. Cuningham, Attree, R. Roake, H. Saunders, Daysh, L. Hoffmann, and Miss '' Guilford.
The various accompaniments were admirably played by Mr. L. Hoffmann.
A very pleasant evening was brought to a close by the singing of "Auld Lang Syne."

Three cases of alleged sly-grog selling came before the Magistrate this morning.
In the first Robert (sic) King was charged with having on the 24th December sold alcoholic liquor without being duly licensed.
Mr. Skerrett appeared for defendant, and Inspector Pender prosecuted.
Probationer Constable J. W. M. Dart gave evidence of having gone with another Probationer on Christmas Eve, at 2 p.m., to defendant''s rooms at the Taita and asked for lunch which was brought in. The girl asked them if they would have tea, and witness said "Yes," unless she could get some beer; She said she would see Mr. Kink (sic). Defendant came out with a small bottle of English ale, and said, "I don''t sell this. I give it to you as it is Christmas time." Just then five men drove up and came in to have dinner. One of them went out in to the passage and returned with two bottles of what witness took to be beer. When they went to pay for the lunch, King shouted for them, and they each had whisky and milk. The two probationers each paid two shillings for their lunch, which consisted of cold fowl, ham, and potatoes, and the beer.
To Mr. Skerrett — Did not pay any thing specially for the beer. There was a label on the bottle. The liquor which the other men had was apparently beer, not cider.
Mr. Skerrett said that 2s was the regular cost of such a lunch.
Probationary Constable Rawle gave corroborative evidence, and was followed by Probationer Booth, who stated that on two occasions since the 24th December he had had lunch at defendant''s place, and was charged 1s 6d the first time and 1s the next. He had tea to drink both times. Once he and his mate were asked by King to have a drop of whisky with him. Witness had poultry and vegetables, plum pudding, and tea for dinner the time he paid 1s 6d.
Constable Cruickshank, of the Hutt, gave evidence that when he served the summons on defendant, the latter said that he often gave visitors a glass of beer when they asked for it, but did not charge them for it, though it reduced his profits. He said he had three charges for different classes of lunch — 1s 6d, 2s, and 2s 6d.
Mr. Skerrett submitted that there was no case to answer. In order to establish an offence under the Statute there must be first, either an actual sale or a transaction in the nature of a sale. He went on to argue and to quote authorities with the object of showing that there had been no sale.
The Magistrate said that the point at issue was, did he believe that it was a bona fide gift on account of its being Christmas Eve, or was it a practice to charge more when beer was given?
Mr. Skerrett said that was so, but he was going to further contend that even if it was a practice it was a valid one.
Mr. Haselden, S.M., decided that there was a case to answer, and Mr. Skerrett called the defendant.
Reuben (sic) King, who said he had been resident at the Taita for 42 years as a farmer, and lately keeping refreshment rooms also. When the girl told him that the gentleman wanted beer he told them that he was very sorry, but he could not give it to them, but they insisted on having a glass, and he gave it to them, telling them, however, that he would not charge for it. And he did not charge them. In accordance with his tariff 2s was the usual charge for the meal they had. The beer was colonial, and he did not give it to customers perhaps once in six months though he sometimes did when they were anxious to have it, and then he did not charge them. The liquor the other gentleman had on that particular day was cider.
To Inspector Pender - He never got in more than one dozen and a half bottles of ale at a time, and at intervals as he required it a case of whisky. But he never sold it.
His Worship said that seeing the day on which the occurrence took place and the deliberate statement made by King that he would not charge for it, a statement admitted by both the probationary constables, the defendant would escape this time. The charge would be dismissed.

Mr. Reuben King, who is known as the "Father of the Hutt Valley," celebrated his 99th birthday on Tuesday, August 7th. Mr King is one of the best known and highly respected men in the district having resided there since he was about 21 years of age.

He takes a great interest in politics and is a well-known figure at the local euchre parties where, in spite of his years, his skill is not surpassed by the younger generation, and a remarkable feature is the fact that he has not yet required the aid of spectacles. Mr. King was the recipient of the best wishes of his many friends, who all trust that he will long enjoy his present good health.

The late Mr, Rueben King, on right talking to Sir Heaton Rhodes at a recent Trentham rifle meeting. Mr. King died at his home at Lower Hutt yesterday, in his hundredth year.
Just having missed his ceutury, Reuben King, of Taita, Lower Hutt, died yesterday. He would have been a hundred years old in August. Probably no person, has been a more familiar figure to residents of the Hutt Valley than Reuben King. For sixty years past he has journeyed regularly in his market gardener''s cart to and from the city, and it is only in recent years that this journey has not been a daily one. He was born in the Cambridge village of Icklingham, near the cathedral city of Ely, and for the first few years of his life assisted his father, who was woodman to the lord of the manor. Afterwards he worked at a flint quarry, mining flints, for flintlock muskets. These were, in great demand, Britain at that time being engaged in a war. He used to tell how bankruptcy came to that village when percussion caps first came in. When growing into young manhood the call of the great metropolis came to him, and he made the, in his day, venturesome journey to London. There his energy and willingness to work found him ready employment. His first task was to assist a contractor in the building of one of London''s bridges. He continued to work for this contractor for some years, and then his mining experience helped him to obtain employment in building some of the huge pillars of London. His next work was in the great northern potato market, and he used to tell with gusto how he made the market''s record sale to a contractor who was supplying the British Armies in the Crimean War. Shortly after this the call of Australia came to him, but his intended wife, not being willing to face the unknown, he had to abandon the idea. Shortly after his marriage, however, he persuaded her, and they came to New Zealand in the Southern Cross 52 years ago. Here his knowledge gained in the potato market stood him in good stead, obtaining for him employment in the market gardens at Lower Hutt. He soon became the owner of his own property and found a ready market for his produce in the growing city. Mr. King was an enthusiastic volunteer and rifle shot, and was indeed an all-round sportsman. In the early days he served against the Maoris, on one occasion being ambushed, and barely escaping with his life. He was on one occasion runner-up for the King''s Belt. The honour was his of meeting every Royal personage who has visited New Zealand, and he was right-hand man in the guard of honour to the Duke of Edinburgh. When the present King, as Duke of York, visited New Zealand, Mr. King was presented to him, and more recently he met the Prince of Wales and the Duke of York. A keen politician, Mr. King took an active part in every election up to the last. He retained all his faculties up to the day before his death, and only a few weeks ago did he discontinue his attendance at the weekly euchre parties at Taita. He was twice married. His first wife died forty years ago, and his second about twenty-five years ago. He is survived by three daughters — Mrs. Mockridge (Petone), Mrs. Harrison (Auckland), and Mrs. Walters (Taita) - and one son - Mr. Leonard King (Taita). There are three great-great-grandchildren, 36 great grandchildren, and 29 grandchildren.
