It is as follows :  Boston, April 22nd, 1899. To the secretary of Avar : I desire to send a large  number of the enclosed pamphlets to the  officers "and privates in the Philippine  islands. I therefore desire to know  Avhether or not these documents can be  sent directly through the Avar department or may be forwarded in tho  ordinary course through the mail.  A list of regiments is desired  and if there are printed lists of the  officers available, they Avould serve me a  Arery useful purpose. (Signed) Edward  Atkinson.  "No answer Avas made to this letter,  except to send an oilicial copy to the  postmaster-general, avIio issued instruc-  tione to the postmaster at Sau Francisco to hold the pamphlets. The  spirit and design of the pamphlets  may be indicated by a few  extracts.

THE    PROVINCE    SUBSCRIBES  $1,000,000   FOB   THE   CABLE.  Spain's Unfortunate Leaders.  , Special to The Tribune.  Madrid, May 5.���Spain is awaiting  with impatience the trial of Admirals  Ceiwera anil Montojo and Gens. Jaudencs  and Toral for their part in the disasters  that befell, the country in the late Avar.  The supreme court of the army and niwy,  before AA'hich the admirals and generals  are to be tried, has an unimpeachable reputation for impartiality, anil  there is thought to be little likelihood  that the soldiers anil sailors at the bar  Avill be sacrificed to the popular clamor  for a A'ictim unless it be found that their  acts merited punishment. The charge  against general Toral is the unwarranted  signing of the capitulation of Santiago.  A like charge, Avith reference to Manilla,  stands against general Jaudencs, Avhile  adinirals Cer^fera and Hontixo must an-  SAver  for the  destruction   of the;  fleets.  Special to The Tribune.  Victoria, May 5.���The best adA*ertise-  ment cA-er given this province is contained in the offer made public  to today  ofthe contribution, by the province of British Columbia ot one-ninth  of the cost  of  the Pacific cable, Avhieh project seeemd in  danger  of collapse because   of the  imperial government's decision  at  the last  moment  to share only, in the probable  deficit on tlie cable Avorking expenses and  not in* the expense  of construction.    The  responsibility Avhieh the piwince  thus  undertakes is roughly speaking one  million dollars.    British Columbia proposes  to  come  in on equal  footing  Avith  the  great Australian colonies  of New South  Wales,   Victoria,   Queensland  and- NeAV  Zealand, each of which takes a. one-ninth  share of the burden.    Nowhere in Canada  can a better estimate  be formed  of the  importance of the demand for the Pacific  cable than in British  Columbia, and this  prompt action by the provincial   government Avill no  doubt impress the government at OttaAva.

An extraordinary general meeting of  the Hall Mines* Limited, was held on  Thursday, at -Winchester House, E. >C,  i'or the.-purpose of considering a resolution increasing the capital of-the company. Sir Joseph W. Trutch, chairman  of the company, presided.  The secretary having read the notice  convening the meeting,  The  chairman   said:    I   have .-iioav to  move tliat the resolution set forth in the  notice calling tlie meeting wliich has just  been   read   by  the-secretary   be passed.  Tlie: statement .which the directors have  circulated With this notice appears to nie  ���and I believe you will all have found it  so���so clear in conveying to you the facts  upon wliich   we have found it necessary  to  summon   you  today   to consider   the  resolution, that  I feel it   would be superfluous   for mo   to  enlarge on   that .statement.    I could only:reiterate and elaborate   what is   so clearly   set  before you  there, and you  would  not thank me for  detaining, you by such reiteration.    The  main points thatd avou Id call-your attention  to in   placing the '-resolution  before  you are  that,  asds stated in  the notice,  your board of. directors found it requisite  in ordertocarry oiiroui'; business that we  should obtain.more capital. 'We came to  the conclusion  that-tlie best way to obtain that capital  was by'the issue of debentures, but when   we placed those debentures before the  shareholders Ave did  not-find  so much encouragement as avc  had   hoped- for,-and   we were  told  that  in  order  toV insure these debentures being  taken up  we should have to-make  them  coiiA**crtible  into* ordinary  shares.  Therefore,  avo haA'e to call you. together  that  you niayiiut us in  the position of  .increasing.the capital of the,company in  order to carry out;the;measure.    The objects for which we desire to obtain this  additional  .capital ��� haAreL . been   already  communicated to you at the last-general  meeting, in   December, both  by myself  and, more iii detail, by -the"-'report -'from  Mr..

Robert f)ky seconded the; resolution.  T. Poultncy.Griffin s'lid he- happened  to be in British Cohunljia in July last,  and #sit<p^tlieHailI��:JJ:uies?and:!the smelter. /j}here:Avasiaf large :.quautity pi Ioav-  grad^) country ore coining tVom the mine,  but it Avas not carefully picked, and consequently i tlie result, after passing .the  smelter, did not shoAv sufficient profit to  pay the cost of working.  The chairman: I ���������may ������ answer: ithat  question at: once. :\0f ���course the?iiistru'c-  tions are that5 all care should be taken not  to send down ore that will not realize  fifteen ounces of silver to the ton, Avhieh  it has found by experience is sufficient to  more than pay-all the smelting expenses.  The'ore that has been taken out of .late  is certainly of a ".lower" grade "than* "Ave  used, to AVOrk, aiid. much of .it .comes from  the j' development Av6rk Avhieh is being  carried on. Of course, it is diftienlt at  times to discern accurately Avhat is and  Avhat is not: payable -ore.. As it istaken  out it all has -to come to the surface, but  you may depend oh it ��� that the mau-  agement, Avhether here, or at Nelson^ is  not likely to send doAA*n the mountain  any ore that Avill not repay the cost of  transit and.smelting.  Mr. Day said that he Avoiild like to an-'  s wer the statement -made ��� by one of: the  speakers that the ore coming doAvn from  the mine Avas not payable.. As a matter  of fact, they had made a; profit e\-ery  'month*, and a good profit.  In reply to other questions,  the chair-  >man said that it Avas- true that, altliough  8 * D   jo^ij p.  BY ��EALING ^TTH  FMMS  gs  A TRIAL ORDER SOLIOITED  a  Trie Tribune  Ed iti  Daily Ed iti oh by mail $5  mail $2 a year.  they had-made a profit of ��5000 : for ������the  four months to the end  of January, iind  that Avas after defraying all expenses and  allowing for depreciation ; and so far  as  the accounts to the end of February-had  been audited in the office���they "had  not  been passed by the auditor yet���he might  say that between October 1st and  the  end of February,  taking   into   account  Avhat   they had   paid   for   dcA'elopment  work and Avhat they had written off: for  depreciation of plant and   buildings, the  total .profit had been between jE12,000and  ,Cl."-i,OOo, and the net profit had been over  ��1000 a month.    He would*'also  remind  the shareholders that   tliey  had an   interest in   other  properties   in   tlie same  neighborhood Avhicli were at  present/ being prospected, and, although   there Avas  no   definite   in formation that 'could- be  given, he could say that the prospect  in  some of  these   Avas  Aery faA'orable.    In  one   property   they   had    discovered   a  streak of gold quart/, that seemed  very  likely to turn out a payable streak. They  had   also   options   on   other  properties  which Avere likely to yield payable quantities   of  copper.      Another   important  point which had been touched on'by one  of the speakers was that they Avere "able  to use their  smelter for the  purpose of  treating the ore  from  surrounding 'properties, and they looked forward to  considerable profits from that source.  There  was one return of LS0O  tons  uoav -being  successfully   treated,   and    they    Avere  about to start treating  a  second  quantity, Avhicli Avould yield profitable results.  As one who had initiated the erection of  the large smelter, he was quite confident  that that Avould prove a Source of  profit  to the company.    A large  smelter -could  always be Avorked more  cheaply  than a  smaller one; and  one reason Avhy  they  had erected the large smelter Avas  that  they intended  to   treat -the'-ore from  neighboring mines.

AMONG   THE   TENDERFEET.  R. T. Lowery in New Denver Led;<e.  Some years ago I Avroto a few lines  about visiting my old home and mother,  po I-will not repent the description. It  does not matter how many times a man  Ansits his home and the scenes of his  youth, the greeting is joyful, Avhile the  parting has the same kind of sadness it  had upon the first day yoiio plunged into  the cold Avorld and cut yourself loose  from ties that are tender, yet the strongest in the world. Xo matter where we  roam, how avc live, or what we do, nothing can shut out whiles the mind remains intact the remembrance of home  and a man's best friend his mother. In  ihe silvery West are many boys who,  through carelessness, neglect to Avrite  homo! They should break this habit. If  they only knew how a mother appreciates  a letter from a son, they might write  "oftoner. Just a little time, some paper,  and two cents for postage will make  many a glad heart. It is .just a trifle,  boys : but how many will take my advice ?  Thirty years ago Petrolea, Ontario, was  a hot town, much like Avestern mining  camps, but it has changed. It is no  longer considered good form to 'get drunk  and paint the town a deep crimson.  Poker is still played in secluded places,  but the limit has fallen to fifty cents, and  the game is but a shadow of its former  self. The town is full of fine churches,  and I attended several of them. The  ante, I noticed as the plate went round,  Avas from hVe to ten cents. There is no  excuse for anyone going to hell in the  East. .Every possible trail to heaven is  represented by earthly agents, and  ' churches are to be found cwery few miles.  It seems to be impossible for the Avickcd  to'keep on shift, although I was told that  the foot prints of Old Nick's boots  Avere occasionally seen in some parts of  the proA-iuce.  Petrolea is a great toAvn for society.  Balls and -parties are preA*alent, aud in  their OA\*n Avay the people are as important as NeAV York's 400.  Petrolea has its representatives in all  parts of--the '.world.    In' Borneo, captain  Woodward' has  a  creAv of  men drilling  for oil.    His  old  partner  "Bill " McGar-  vey lias made millions  in   Austria.    In  JaAra,V Sumatra,   Africa,   Australia   and  many other countries are men from Petrolea pounding the rock in search of pc-  : troleum.' The tools they use  are nearly  7      all manufactured by McKeuzie & Joyce.

CUURKNT RATE OK INTKRBST PAID  "MILKED"-BY THE CANADIAN PACIFIC.  It is iiot much Avonder* that the Intercolonial  railway  1ms- not paid expenses,  i'or it has been "milked"-by the Canadian'  Pacific under a one-sided traffic arrange-*  inent. ir Tlie ��� Dominion, government   has  decided, according to a semi-official intimation, to terminate, on the 1st of July,  ���next,  the   arrangement by    which  the  Canadian Pacific Raihvay Company exercises itt present running rights OArer the  Intercolonial. railway 7betAveen StJ John  .and Halifax.    By  this arrangement,  the  Canadian Pacific has tlie free use of tlie  "two hundred  and   seventy-five miles of  -the Intercolonial track between the capi-.  tal of NeAV BrunsAvick and: that of Nova  .'Scotia for  its  through  trains,.^and3 the  iright to gather traffic for its oavu system  'along "this  great  line  running  through  the most populous parts of the Maritime,  ���proA'Jnees, aim} at alone Vapparently, has  the right to solicit traffic,"either passen-  ���ger or freight    In retiiru) for these immensely valuable privileges,  the Gaua-  ���dian  Pacifiq.haiids. ovet'Tthe receipts for  the purely local  traffic  Avhieh it carries  to  the  Intercolonial.    The  goArernnient,  Avhieh owns and controls the Intercolonial,  maintains the line,  of course.    This  arrangement Avas an exceedingly fa/vor-  ablc  one for the  Canadian Pacific company, inauiuuch as it resulted,  in effect,  in' the. Intercolonial  receiving .only tho  receipts for'the local traffic and the Canadian Pacific company commanding all,  or- nearly all;  the through ,,tranicy both  passenger and local..   When the arrangement/ avus* made,  tlie  Intercolonial rail-  Ayay only  reached Point LeA'is, and.any  traffic it could gather from the  Maritime  provinces'.for. distribution-  along   this  /route   Avas   exceedingly   small.    It   had  connection  Avith - the*; Grand . Trunk   at  Point Levis, but-by thispreciousarrangement the   agents   of   the- Intercolonial  alongits oavu line between St. John and  Halifax Avere .debarred .from" soliciting  traffic in competition Avith the Canadian  Pacific Company.  ItJs little Avondcr'if the Intercolonial  railAvay, under such-an1 arrangement; became almost a negligible quantity in.-the  problem .of Maritime- proATince and  through transportation, though nominally a splendid line. When the Laurier  administration assumed the reins of goA'ernment, it found this; arrangement in  force, but it was terminable at the end  of a year's .no���tice. . The  goA'eiuinent. do-  Is r*ow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, ll. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk,or* District.  carrying of the local traffic by the preceding Canadian Pacific train.    Yet that  is   the  benefit it is supposed  to receive  from the Canadian Pacific, in return for  the valuable running rights given by the  Intercolonial over its tracks.     The Canadian Pacific has, of course, traversed  the  line from St. John toMoncton, only about  ;oighty-oiie miles,doing the business for  -the Intercolonial, but, arriving as the Intercolonial train  does, a few hours later,  an Intercolonial  train has  to be run between Moncton and St. John for the  accommodation of its passengers going that  Avay.    So that the only saving to the Intercolonial, from the arrangement Avhieh  giAres the  Canadian Pacific free running  rights over tAvo hundred aiid seventy-five  miles of its track, is that of a train from  St. John to Moncton,  a ��� distance, as  Ave  have  seen, of eighty-One hides.    The effect of the government's policy of terminating the present arrangements with  the Canadian Pacific 'railway on the 1st  of July would, it appears,  therefore, bo  to. give the Intercolonial command of the  through traffic of the Maritime proA'iuces  north and- east of  St. John.    It is  probable, . however," that- itYvill be found in  the interests  of both   the   government  .���management  of*the Intercolonial and of  the . Canad iau; Pacific * Rairway Company  to agree upon  a neAV aud less one-sided  arrangement than, that Avhieh has hitherto been  in   existence1���one   Avhieh   Avill  leaAre  the  Intercolonial  the business  of  its own-lines and au interest in deArelop-  iug that business, Avhile, for a fair compensation, giving : the Canadian  Pacific  running  rights   OArer the   line- betAveen  Halifax aiid St.  Jolm, and enabling it to  Avork* up its  through Canadian business  independent of American ports.  MAKING    AND   CARING   OF    LAWNS.  An American -tourist, once asked the  gardener at an English uniA'crsity Iioav  the perfect lawns had been made. _ "It's  Avas the  reply : ="We first  t"et;ihiiied  to lilaK^  the line,  AVhiqh had  long been iv liiige' bill of expense to the  people,  a paying li*iie, 'if possublej aiid at  Jleast.4hey=c0ultl^gi-A>e^itsavchance^of==be--  .p'oiiiing.suchby cancelling the unjust ar-  l-angdment. YMi'. ;OBlair,.Vthe minister of  iMJways-vahd -Canals, rtccordinglj**, gaAre  the year's JiOtification, and proceeded to  make arrangements to extend the Inter-  . colonial railway to Montsreal, Avith the ill?  -.tiniate purpose of making that line the  ��� carrier, if possible, of the thi'ougli traffic  -of the Maritime provinces and central  and Avestern Canada. At Montreal-, the  government could'hope to make better  ��� connection arrangements With the Grand  'Trunk, the Canadian Pacific, or   other  lines Avhicli might {'each1 Montreal thaw  :it.could hope to do Avhile Point Levis AA'as  .the Avesterhtermiiial of the line. When  tlio year' AVas up, last July, the goA'crn-  Inellt found that it Avas not. then prepared to take over the local business of the  Maritime provinces, and the arrangement  with the Canadian Pacific, someAvhat  modified,-,.Avas' extended for another year.  During that year, the Intercolonial  has been firmly established in Montreal,  and it appeal's not improbable that arrangements 7 haA-e been made Avith the  Grand" Trunk and the Canada ^Atlantic  and Parry Sound raihvays, Avhieh will be  of great benefit to the Intercolonial railAvay and the people: of ���������both the Maritime  and central provinces of Canada. The  AA'orkiug of the arrangement Avith the  Canadian Pacific is shoAVii by the present  train services of the Intercolonial and  the Canadian Pacific. Trains of both  companies start out from Montreal,  about the same hour eArery eArening, and  the Canadian Pacific, going by \xvay of  St. John, arrives at Moncton a iexv hours  before the Intercolonial, and precedes it  all the Avay���a hundred and eighty-six  miles���to Halifax. The Intercolonial,  running its oaa'u trains over the route  immediately behind the Canadian Pacific  train, sayes little, if any thing, either of  Avear  and tear or InotiA'e poAver by the  this, Ayay,= sir  rolls, 'em i'or a couple o' 'uiidred years  and then" AveY.Avaters 'em, fbr niaybo  another couple 6' 'undred years an' then  Aveclips'em for mayberanqther couple q'  --'uiidred years, an' by: that time they look  about as you see 'em iioav."  , That does very Avell for England, but  our people cannot afford to Ayaitior  the passage of ages until their laAvns are  perfection. Nor is it necessary if they'  AA'ill. but" fqlloAV* the feAV hints giA'en  beloAvi ...  .It is seldom that sufficient care is taken  in the-making of a lawn. The house is  built, the debris is cleared- away, an'inch  or tAvo of good soil is scattered o\'er and  the sod laid thereon. The owner thinks  that that is all that is required, and is  surprised Avhen, iii spite of his care, the  laAvn does not prosper.  If more care was bestoAved on the making of the Iiiavu less care would be required to keep it, and better insults  Avould accrue.  No laAvn will-contain a fresh, and green ,  appearance unless, the: soil  is good and  1 there must be plenty of it.    I  av/ouIci  re-  cJonimGrid everyone to place a layer "of  ^roin-six-to^eiglit^nclleSriit^lQaSt^oIi^the^  ground   before   putting   doAA'ii the sod.  Indeed I -prefer-a footVof good earth niy-  ��self; and iii making the laAvns in the vari-  oiisparks and squares in this city I endeavor  to have  rather' more than less.  Many  may think  this  superfluous, biit  the results will amply repay them for the  extra trouble and cost.  Upon this foundation of good earth  thevturfsliould be laid, extreme Care being taken to see that the latter is free  from Weeds. Tlie season for laying' the  sod -will depend on circumstances, but if  laid iu the fall I Avould. recommend October, or NoArember. If tho work is done  iu the Spring it should be completed  sufficiently long before the dry season to  allow the turf to get roothold, otherAvise  the season is lost and the Iiiavu Avould  soon become unsightly. The turf should  be laid as soon as possible after being cut  and evenly beaten dOAvn Avith a pounder.  This Avill not produce a level surface, but  Avill close up the cracks. Next run a  heavy roller over the Avhole.  Duringthefirst summer the laAvn should  not be moAved too closely, for if a dry  season occur it will most likely suffer if  cut too frequently and too closely. Another' important thing to remember is  that if it is necessary to Avater it, it is  far better to soak thoroughly than to  sprinkle frequently.  A laAvn may be made otherAvise than  by laying turf. It may be made by seeding. The best season for this is in April  or the beginning of May, as the Aveather  Ave get then is generally ftworable for  the germination of the seeds. The ground  should be prepared for sowing in the  same Avay as Avhen turf is to be laid. It  must be made solid by treading' and rolling and then raked to a perfectly level  surface. On this soav the : seeds evenly  and then rake them Avelf in, after Avhieh  roll  thoroughly.    The  sOAving  must be  done on a calm clay or it will be impossible to distribute the seeds evenly. The  varieties of grasses to be sown depend  greatly upon the situation. The seedsman from whom the seeds are procured  Avill give the proper kind if told of the  location and surroundings. 1 avou Id not  advise the use of clover for small lawns.  In many cases it Avill kill out some of the  grass, and the chances are that next  Avinter's frost will kill the clover and the  lawn will only be half covered.  No lawn can he properly kept without  a certain   amount  of  care.    Where   the  soil is poor it is necessary to ripen   Avith  some kind of fertilizer.     If the lawns are  extensive  nothing   is  better  (luring the  Avinter months   than   a  top  dressing of  avo 11 rotted manure. But when the lawns  are .small and run up under the windows  1 cannot too strongly condemn   the practice of-dumping manure upon   them.    It  would not be so bad if a thoroughly rotted  compost was put on   late   in   the   fall   or  during the early Avinter, but many people  make the mistake of covering their lawns  at this season of the year or earlier Avith  a quantity of fresh stable manure.    This  can be seen  in  dozens  of places iii  the  city, and it  is  both  unsightly and disagreeable.      Moreover���and   this  is   the  most   important    thing  to  remember���  those   Avho   so  cover tlieir laAvns   with  fresh stable manure are almost certain to  fill their lawns Avith Aveecls.    A far easier,  cheaper and cleaner Avay to stimulate the  laAv'n is to obtain from your seedsman  a  small quantity of one of the numerous ,  artificial manures Avhicli can be applied at  any time through  the  summer-months  .and answer the same  purpose as rotted  manure.     The quantity used Avill depend  upon  tlie  size    of   the    Iiiavu   and   the  strength of the fertilizer.     In the majority cases directions are given as to .their  use.   A splendid fertilizer for light soils  is made up of one part of  ordinary land  plaster mixed with tAvo parts of salt.  One of the causes of poor Iiiavus in this  city, and, no doubt elseAvhercy is the  looseness Avith Which.the trees are planted on lawns and bouleA'ards. The foliage  in many places is so dense : that neither  grass nor anything else caii tluive. If  people Avould cut out and thin the trees  better results Avould be obtained. We  all knoAV that there is a great deal of  sentiment regarding trees. I, for one,  believe in planting them thickly, but I  also bclieA'0 in romcrving them as soon  as necessary. There nre many instances  Avhere it is iiuulA-isable to prune the  trees so that grass Avill groAv beneath  them.. In such cases 1 avouIcI ..recoup  mend' the planting of some.of the varieties of periAvinkle, oi-glechonia, or ground  ivyV if the V.latter is used it Avill be  necessary to see, that it docs not 'spread  on to.theYla,wii,- where-it Avill giver as  liiuch trouble as dandelion.        .-   ' 7  - A very common mistake in cutting-  laAvns is to-set the blades of the machine  .too Ioav. By- this means the roots are  often cut, and,in dry weather are certain  to burn. Another, bad' consequence of that it kills the more  tender A*:arieties of- grass. 1 avou Id ad-  A'ise all not to cut^the grass very-close in  the fall. It is better to leave it a little  long so as to protect the roots, even if  the dead grass has to be raked off in the  spring.  If. any avoccIs appear���such as dandelions, plantains, etc.���they should be  promptly cut out or they Avill quickly increase, entailing no end of Avork in after  years, and in all probability the Iiiavu  aa*1II have to be dug up. and resoded.  Dandelions particularly increases A-ery  rapidly Avliere a mowing machine without  a grass collector is used, as the flower  heads' are throAVii all Over the laAvn and  the seeds aahII sooil 'yftgetate and, grow in-  HOTEL   ARRIVALS  QUICKN'S.
