SIGN PLATT AMENDMENT
Only the Action of the Two Senates
(By A'BocUteel Prem.)
WASHINGTON. May 23.-Minister Squi
ers. at Havana, has notified tho State
Department of the signing yesterday by
Mr. Zaldo and himself of the treaty giv?
ing effect to the Platt amendment. This
amendment had already been enacted by
Congress and has been Included In the
Cuban Constitution and this reduction of
tho famous amendment to the form of the
treaty Is next to the last step, which will
consist of Its ratification by the United
States Senate and the Cuban Benate.
The new treaty Is In terms no more than
an exact reproduction of the Platt amend?
ment. It doets not specifically deal with
tho question of coaling stations, whloh
has already been settled as far as pos?
sible at this time by a separate treaty
now awaiting the ratification of the Cu?
ban Senate, but not requiring action by
the United States Senate. Next In order
among the things to be de*lt with is that
relating to tho Isle of Pines and Mr.

TREE PLANTING IN ALABAMA
Eighteen Hundrod Acres to be Plajtted
In Pino, Ohestnut and Oak,
A planting plan ha? recently been pre?
pared by the bureau o? forestry for l.tVlO
aerea of land In Cull man county, Ala.,
owned by Emll Ahlrlchs, and valued at
from $L23 to 13 per aor?. The planting
will bo done In several different locali?
ties, but all lu Cullman county. Work
will begin as noon ua growth ceases next
fall, and will continue through the win?
ter, except In freezing wisather. The
first season's work will Include the plant?
ing of loblolly pino seedlings collected In
the forest on a tract of 1(H) acres of open
woods. Two hundred and eighty acres
wll bo planted with chestnut and white
and poBt oak. A seed bed will be pre?
pared for the raising of loblolly pine for
a tract of 640 acres, a? It la considered
not advisable to use entirely stock col?
lected from the forest.
All this planting Is based on the fact
that while Immense quantities of loblolly
are being cut In that locality, there la
littlo or no reproduction on the land In
question, due chiefly to annual fires set
to Improve? the pasture. Mr. Ahlrlchs
will have a fire patrol system.
It is purposed also to treat a traot of
C40 acres to Improvo tho natural repro?
duction by the prevention of fires.
Labor may be obtained at $16 per
month, hence tho work can be dono at
very email oost It Is estimated that
tho planting will coat only from $2 to
?3 per acre.
Loblolly pine Is to be plantead for the
production of lumber, chestnut for posts
and telegraph poles and oak for railroad
FELL OUT WITH MORGAN.
George Gould Forms Other Alliances to
Carry Out His Extensive Plans.
Scarcely had George Gould taken hold
of the vast interests entrusted to his cure
than he had a serious altercation with
J. Plerpont Morgan over the proposed
purchase of the New York and Northern
allrosd by the Manhattan Elevated
ullroad. Gould left Morgan's otllces
much angered, and Is said never to have
entered them again from that day to this.
One of J.iy Gould's Intimate frle ds, near
Ing of this circumstance, volunteered a
bit of advice to the young man In about
"George, as an admirer of your father,
and as one Interested In your highest wel?
fare, I seriously hope you will not com?
mit the blunder at tho beginning of your
career, o? antagonizing the leading In?
terests In the business world."
George said nothing, but evidently It
sent him to thinking. That "rcmarkablo
business ability." for which a fond father
gave him credit, not long afterward de?
veloped in a way that showed he was
possessed of an acuteness that no one
dreamed of. If he should not antagonize
thought he, ho should make alliances
with the great powers In the business
world. But he had broken with Morgan.
He should, therefore. Join Issues with
other? equally great, or greater, If possi?
He turned, says a writer In tHe May
Cosmopolitan, to the Rockefellers, thoso
commercial giants whose supremacy hus
been unchallenged for more than a de?
cade. Much has been said during the
last year or two of the financial buck?
ing which tho Standard OH Interests have
been giving to Gould. Ho who can an?
swer this question acourately will he
able to foretell the outcome of the bat?
tle of ruilroad giants which Is now in
progress nt both extremities of the Unit?
ed States In the effort to block tho efforts
of the aggressive succssor of Jay Gould
