The Editor of I he Tribune Hear Sir, Which I wish to remark, and my meaning is plain, that there is one ibtiig I know and that is, I Know when 1 want a thing and I try to get it, and I know one other thing and that is when 1 dont want a thing 1 dont trj to get it, but sometimes 1 dont get the thing I want but gel what I dont want through no fault ol mine, but though the sheer cussedness of the other fellow. 'I here is one thing j nrticularly Hat I dont want whit h I am g"ing to tell yon of. I hear that there is a company hereof foreigners some of whom are Germans who want to get from this Government a concession, 1 think it is called, to construe! aGas House tosupply gas foi lighting streets and'honscsrtsido^, of the capacity of on. own ^| Electric plant, and that it has bought tle lot at ihe corner of West Bay and Augusta Street for Ihepurposeol erecting a building thereon. I live in the Western Hist,id in which this lot is, and I object fust to the concession being granted, and second, to the building being erect* d there. Bay St 1 eel has been spoilt already by the ('. lonialllotel, and 1 for one, though not 'he only one in the District decidedly oppose the further spoiling of it. Beside, the erection of sue h a build ing and the working of the plant will create a Public or common nuisance to all the King's subjn Is as well as a private nuisance to the particular residents in the neighbourhood. What is Known as a "noisy and s t i n k i n e trade," In the first case, I believe that the nujsance can be aba*.

Full Text Of American's Ultimatum
To Germany.
{Continued from Ihursday April 27th)
The Imperial government,
notwithstanding, persisted in
carrying out tlie policy announc-
ed, expressing the hope that the
dangers involved, a( any rate to
neutral vessels, would be reduc-
ed to a minimum by the in-
structions which it had issued
to the commanders of its sub
marines, and assuring the gov-
ernment of the United States
tli it it would take every possible
precaution both to respect the
rights of neutrals and to safe
guard the lives of non-combat-
aqg.
0t\ pursuance of thispolicv of
submarine warfare against the
commerce of its adversaries,
thus announced ami thus enter
ed upon in despite of 1 lie solemn
protest of the government of the
United States, the commanders
of the Imperial government's
und-rsea vessels have carried on
practices of such ruthless de-
struction, which have rrnde it
more and more evident as the
m mths have gone by, that the
Imperial government has found
it impracticable to put any such
restraint upon them as it had
hop*d and promised to put. A-
gain and again the Imperial
government has given its solemn
assurances to the government of
the United States that at least
passenger ships would not be
thus dealt with, and yet it has
repeatedly permitted its under
sea commanders tn disregard
tints assurances with impunity
- As recently as February last it
gave notice that it would re-
gard all armed merchantmen
owned by its enemies as part 'if
the armed naval forces of its ad
\ M -*L>'c and deal with them as
with men of war, thus, at least
by implication, pledging itself
to give warning to vessels which
were not armed and to accord
se< urit) of life to their passen
gers and crews; but even this
limitation their submarine com
manders have recklessly ignor
ed.
Vessels of neutral ownership,
even vessels ol neutral owner
ship bound fiom neutral port to
neutral port, have been destroy
ed along with vessels 61 bellig
erent ownership in constantly
increasing numbers Sometimes
the merchantmen attacked have
been warned and summoned to
surrender before bring fired on
or torpedoed; sometimes their
passengers and crews have been
vouchsafed tlie poor security of
being allowed to take to the
ship's boats before the ship was
sent to the bottom. Hut again
and again no warning has been
given; no escape even to the
ship's boats allowed to those on
board. Great liners like the
Lusitania and Arabic and mere
passenger boats like the Sussex,
have been attacked without a
moment's warning, often before
they have even become aware
that they were in the presence
of an armed ship of the enemy,
and the lives of noncombatants,
passengers and crew have been
destroyed wholesale and in a
manner which the government
of the United States cannot but
rtgard as wanton and without
the slightest color of justifies
lion. No limit of any kind has
been set to their indiscriminate
pursuit and destruction of mer
chantmen of all kinds and na
tionalities with the waters
j which the Imperial government
I has chosen to designate as lying
(within the seal ol war. The
[roll of Americans who have
lost their lives upon ships thus
attacked and destroyed has
grown month by month, until
the ominous toll has mounted
intothe hundreds.
The government of the United
States lias been verj patient.
At every stage of this distress
ling exprience of tragedy after
i tragedy it has sought to be go\ -
lemed by the most thoughtful
consideration of the extraordi
'nary circumstances of an un
precedentcd war and to be guid
led by sentiments of very genu-
j ine friendship for the people and
[government of Germany. It has
eccepted the successive explan-
ations and assurances of the lm-
I I i ia1 got emim nt as of course
given in entire sincerity and
good faith, and has hoped, even
against hope, that it would
prove to be possible for the Im
perial government so to order
and control the acts of itsnaval
commanders as to square its
policy with the recognized prin-
ciples of humanity as embodied
in the law of nations. It has
made every allowance for un-
precedented conditions and has
been willing to wait until the
facts became unmistakable and
were susceptible of only one in-
terpretation.
It now owes it to a just re-
gard for its own rights to say to
the Imperial government that
that time has come. It has be-
come painfully evident to it (hat
the position which it took at
the very outset is inevitable;
namely, the use of submarines
for the destruction of an enemy's
commerce, is, of necessity, be
cause of the very character of
the vessels employed and the
very methods of attack which
their employment of course in
VolveS) utterly incompatible
with the principles of human
ity, the long established and in
[controverlible rights of neutral
land the sa< red immunit
non-com I atants.
If it is still tl e purpose of th
Imperial government to ; -<-l

A great many of the men ac
companied b> a friend (mother,
wife, sister or more likely the
other fellow's sister) availed
thtmselvttsof Mr. Jellicoe'skind
ness and hugely enjoyed what
we undeistand was a reallv fine

best, some of the reels were tho

The men all joined heartily
in singing "Tipperary" and the

fully appreciated Mr. Jellicoe's

not 'he only one in the Dis-
trict decidedly oppose the
further spoiling of it. Beside,
the erection of sue h a build

plant will create a Public or
common nuisance to all the
King's subjn Is as well as a
private nuisance to the par-
ticular residents in the neigh-

as a "noisy and s t i n k i n e

In the first case, I believe
that the nujsance can be aba*.
