American marines from Bluefields. They

the eastern coast. They were landed to
protect American property and Ameri

violated the neutrality laws of nations
in landing them on Nlcaraguan soil and
prohibiting his proposed attack on Blue
fields and the blockade of the port.
The removal of the marines now at
Bluefields. about one hundred in number
has been intrusted to Capt. Cooper of the

any differences existing between workers
and this body or between them and ajiy
ether missionary ageaeies, and flnaljy,
