Mr. J. G. Spencer, Pacific Hardware Co., Honolulu. Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They are three feet high and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving for this. You are at liberty to use this in any way you may see fit. Yours truly, A. LIDGATE. REPORT MADE! (Continued i'rom Page 1.) off Tortugas on April 2S, just after sundown. The captain says he kept going ahead under full power of steam, with shot after shot coming after him, and soon outdistanced his pursuer in the darkness. by the non-arrival of her armor plates. Otherwise the completion of the vessel is being rushed with all possible speed. There are over 3,000 men employed in the yard, working day and night shifts. FOOD IS SCKACK. Suffering Is Intense Amouar Poor People in Cuba. NEW YORK, May 5. A special to The Tribune from Key West says: The mail bags on the Spanish steam er Argonauta, which was brought in' by the Marblehead yesterday, may prove a most important capture. There were twelve in all. They contained mail both to and from Havana, some confusion having resulted when the authorities arranged to send every thing by way of Cienfuegos to avoid the blockade of the northern coast of Cuba. One letter from Havana under date of April 26 spoke of suffering among the poorer classes of the population who were entirely without means of support. The writer himself said he did not known where he was to get his dinner. Another letter spoke of suffering but apparently the Govern ment had a fair amount of supplies for the soldiers. A large amount of rice had been imported by speculators who foresaw the blockade and placed it in a warehouse. Blanco was expected to seize this. The Argonauta had a cargo of pro visions intended chiefly for Havana. The question is whether these food supplies will be sent under cover of warships to the reconcentrados. CANNOT ASSIST HER. Austria Does Not See Her Wny Clear to Intervene. LONDON, May 5. A dispatch to The Daily Telegraph from Vienna says: Although the position of the Queen Regent of Spain grows daily more difficult no step can be taken by the Austrian Cabinet in the matter, not withstanding the deep and wide sym pathy felt in high quarters here. It is stated at the Foreign Office that separate and isolated action on the part of Austria must be carefully avoided. This is only in strict ac cordance with the principles already laid down. . However, such an attempt at ren dering assistance to the Queen Regent mieht be easily misinterpreted, and besides meeting with the strongest op position from those who side with the Americans could not fail to give rise to misunderstandings in many quar ters. Accordingly there is a firm determi nation here that if Austria takes any part at all with regaf d to the con flict it will only be to take part in united action by European Cabinets and then only if Spain herself seeks the intervention of the Powers. A flair ut Tamp. TAMPA, May 5. It appears to be al most a settled belief among army offi cers here that no movement of United States troops toward Cuba will take place until after the meeting of the Spanish flotilla with Rear Admiral Sampson's squadron, which is now be lieved to be inevitable. Nevertheless everything possible is being done to put the "United States troops in readi ness for immediate shipment. Preparations for the landing of a large force of native Cubans at some point in Cuba, within convenient reach of General Gomez's army, are being pushed as fast as possible. The Cuban recruiting offices that have been opend here are fairly over whelmed with applications for enlist ment, and it is very probable that close to 1,500 men will be armed and ready for service under the banners of Gomez before the end of the week. Tlie Culprit Caught. SPRINGFIELD, 111., May 5. Detec tive Bones of Springfield, who was as signed to try and locate the person who placed gun cotton in the exposi tion building, where 2,000 Illinois troops are quartered, asserts today that William Aiken, arrested on the charge of robbing Secretary Harkness of the Anaconda Mining Company of New York, is the culprit who hid the ex plosive. Bones says Aiken is a sham detective. Lt-Iter Sells High. CHICAGO, May 5. Great as was the wheat famine aboard, that article was found equally scarce in the Chicago pit when the bears tried to cover. July was hovering about the dollar mark when Leiter announced that he sold 2,000,000 bushels No. 2 red wheat to a French syndicate at $1.47. This com pletely stampeded the pit traders. The excitement during the closing was intense. Pr ab Returns When Yon ll est you and w Are what business men have a right to expect from well managed legitimate en terprises.
