THE REPUBLIC: SATURDAY- OCTOBER 20. 1900.
WAB IMMINENT IN
Xicarnguan Minister Seeking Of
fensive and Defensive Alliance
THREE STATES THREATENED.
Colombia, Salvador and Costa Rica
Have Displeased President
Zelaya, Who Is Seizing
All Private Anns.
Managua. Nicaragua, Sept. 2. (Copy
right. 1JW by W. It. Hearst.) President
Zelaya of Nicaragua and PrefUUnt Castro
of Venezuela are scheming to plunge all
Central America Into war.
rernando Sapdrc-z. Nicaragua's Minister
of Foreign Affairs, has gone, to Venezuela
to present to President Castro the comm!
slon of a Major General In tho Nicaraguan
army and the decorations that appertain to
tho rank. This la the ostensible reason for
lit trip, but the real reason, of which no
secret Is made. Is to form an oifenslvo and
defensive nlllanca between the two coun
tries against Colombia. Salvador and Costa
Not that the people of these little Repub
lics havo anything against each other; far
from It; thoy are on the most friendly terms
so far as their co-called Presidents allow
them to go. The secrtt of all the trouble
lies In th fact that thes-j Presidents are
more despotic than tho Czar of Russia or
the Emperor of China. They tire military
dictators. In power only so Ions ns they
can keep their enemies from ousting them.
Party names mean nothing except "Ins"
ftnd "outs." At present the "IJberals" are
In power In Nicaragua and Venezuela, while
the "Conservatives" rulo Colombia, Salva
dor and Costa Rica.
President Zelaya rules tho Conservatives
of his omi country with a hand of iron.
Squads of his soldiers are arresting the rich
ones and lockin? them up hero In Managua.
They get no trial and are never accused of
anything. Rut they stay In prison, where
they must pay for their board and lodging
or starve, until they give up a handsome
line; then they are allowed to go heme.
No man Is allowed to own a rifle, and
President Zelaya has corralled nil tho can
non and ammunition In the country, which
ha keeps here under lock and key, guarded
by his personal friends. He has a. Il3t In his
Cask of every man In Nicaragua who owns
a. revolver or shotgun.
These Internal precautions have been taken
in view of an expected attack by Costa
Rica, Salvador and Colombia In revenso for
the aid Zelaya cava to tho Colombian rebels.

shut-down for repairs, nfter which the
brilliant light was restored.
