NICARAGUA AND KNOX.
It Is hard to bcllevo that Secre
tary Knox Is nssumlng a strong posi
tion toward Nicaragua as the result
of a new Idea that has suddenly de
veloped In tho Stnte Department.
Nicaragua furnishes tho only field
for the construction of an Inter
i-1 MKMUI1 lUlUC.
Tho proximity of Nicaragua to tho
r.innui.i canal, whether the northern
innnl route lie utilized nr not. makes
hands of n government nntngonlstlo
to American Interests, nor can It al-
iow n reckless administration of uf-
fairs to bring Nicaragua Into complt-
cations with Kuropcan iiowers.

tended more und moio to convert tho
Carrlbean sea Into an American lake.
This domination of course carries
wljh It great' responsibilities. Nn
tlons "bordering on,that lake must bo
comport themselves thnt tfiey 'will
not jcnpardlzo our control y hilhg

cy to Interfere before tho foolish
President of that country has called
forth a hostile demonstration from
some Kuropcan power, than to allow
him to do his worst and then bo
forced to Btep In nnd Inform tho
world that tho United States will
lake caro of Its neighbors, Europeans
ra'ust keep' their hands off, the Mon
100 doctrine must be recognized,
pud so forth.
Sooner or later the Central Amer
ican countries must be straightened
out, and It Is difficult to bellevo that
any better occasion offers than the
presont to attend to Nicaragua.

should say that tho next few dayH

piote.. , of statistics and sociology
tit Cornell University. Prof. Wilcox
gathered valuable htatlstlcs for tlio In
ternational Statistics Institute that
met In Purl's recently nnd has given
his report to the public.
"Thero Is probably no country, '
tho professor writes, "to wnlch tho
problem ot dlyorco nnd separation Is
of greater Importance than the Unti
ed Stntos. For that reason inoiu at
tention has been given to dlvorco by
tho Government of tho United States
than by that of any other country.
An International table accompany
ing tho report shows Hint Japan
heads tho list of divorces, With liK'
per 100,000 population. If Algeria
Is to ho counted her Records oven
exceed Japan's, hclng liHH, on the

Japan nnd more than' twice thnt f

In determining the probability .of

professor nlso llmln that tho iiinr

than beeping pace with It.
Tho' nvcrngo number of persons
married each yV:jr to the lit.tiOO po

by, Western Australia among the

marriageable population for thn Inst
given llvo-yc.vr period was 711, a
rate exceeded .only by Hungary,
among the twenty-three regions fiom
which figures were obtained.
Tho marriage rate In this country
Is lowest In the Northcn Stntes anil
highest In tho Southern States, tho
rates being twice us high In the
Stntes where negroes live as lu the
The figures show, 'Jlr. Wilcox
points out, that the early marriages
arc much moro common among ne
groes nud Indians than whites, but
they nlio show that mining tho while
population of both sexes early mar
riages nro much moro ininmnii in J
tho .Southern States than 111 tho Nor

United States married life begins lu
tho country districts nt 1111 earlier ngo
than it dues In tho titles, that 11
probably lasts lunger nnd that if tho
-union Is biokeii 11 is moro likely to
lie succeeded by a second marriage.
Mr. Wilcox adds significantly: "It
demonstrates thut the Influence of
city life lu tho United States Is tol
delay nud thus lu mhuo measure to!
prevent marriage; that this I11II11-!
ence among men Is Bomewhut cnii'n- i
toractcd by tho excess of women lu

Tho Western dlvlsfoiVof the Unit-'

The Increase of dlvorco In tho South-'
