THK i)K,MOCRATC NORTHWEST, THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 1
The rail of Lima.
Lima baa fallen. Th Peruvian capital
haa been captured by the Chilian after a
fierce battle in the suburb, and the vic
tors cu dow dictate termaof peace to the
vanquished. At the commencement of,
the triangular contest between Chili and ;
the allied republics of Bolivia and Pern j
in April, 1879, the population of Chili j
was only about equal to tbat of Bolivia,
while Pern's was considerably larger than
tbat of either. The standing armies of
the allies were double Chili's. The navy
of Peru was powerful in contrast with
tbat of her opponent. Nearly every civil
ized nation bad an interest in the pro
ducts of ber mines and ber niter and
guano beds, and might be relied on to
advance money liberally and to imped
the success of her antagonist.
It was doubtless these considerations
that induced her to support Bolivia in
ber breach of treaty with Chili ivith re
gard to the Atacama niter beds and the
guano deposits of the Bay of Mejillo'nes,
By a treaty, ratified in '74, both repub
lics were to share equally the guano de
posits, and for 24 years the Chilians were
guaranteed the liberty of exporting niter
and other minerals from between the lati
tudes of 23 and 24 without an increase of
export duty. '
On the alleged failure, of the Chilian
contractors to comply with the terms of
their bargains, the Bolivian Congress, in
February 1878, laid an export duty of ten
cents per 100 pounds, upon the Chilian
exports of n.'ter. The protests of Chili
were disregarded, and the plucky little
republic at onceseized upon Antofagasta,
the chief Bolivian port from which the
nitrates were exported. Peru, jealous of
the spirited rivalry of Chili in the fertil
izer trade, sided with the Bolivia, in the
confident expectations of an easy victory
and a monopoly of the niter and guano
resources of the country. Chili, not a
whit daunted, promptly declared war
against this new enemy, anxious to defer
hostilities until she had made better pre
parations for the contest.
From the outset the armies of the Chi
lians have, been uniformly successful on
land, and, with the exception of the
early brilliant achievements of the Peru
vian iron clad Huascar, and a few losses
from torpedoes, their fleet lias been
equally victorious at .sea. While their
army pushed vigorously northward,
gaining victory after victory and forcing
the defeated Bolivians to seek shameful
safety in their own country, the fleet de
vastated the Peruvian coast and levied
heavy contributions on its panic-struck
inhabitants. Tbeir brilliant successes,
: crowned by the triumph of January 17,
considering the poverty ef their resources
and the small number of their population,
place the Chilians high among the mili
tary nations of the world, and give them
the begomony, or leadership, all of the
. South Ameriean Republics.
A few months ago an attempt was made
through- tbe mediation of the United
" State, to conclude a peace between the
belligerents, bat as the Chilians insisted
. on the cession to them of the territory
of Atacama, about- which the dispute
arose, as well as on a pecuniary compen
sation for the expenses of the war, the
terms were deemed too severe, and were
consequently rejected. Although many
of the wealthiest provinces of Peru are
east of the Andes, and therefore still un
touched by the ravages of war, yet there
is little doubt thot peace will be soon
forced upon the humiliated people. After
the additional outlay and bloodshed the
terms imposed by the victors will be
hardly less severe than those formerly
offered, and will probably include the
cession by Peru of the Province of Tara
paca, with its great mineral and fertilizer
wealth, in addition to the annexation of
the part of Atacama claimed by Bolivia,
together with several Peruvian seaports.
. Such an agreement would give to Chili
almost an entire monopoly of the va9t
nitrate resources of South America and a
preponderating share of its guano wealth,
and must therefore be of interest to the
agriculture of the world. Foreign na
tions, however, may interfere in the set
tlement of the terms of peace, in defence
of the interests of their subjects, who
have made large loans to Peru on the
security of her nitrate and guano depos
its. There is a report in this city that
a syndicate of wealthy speculators have
within the last month concluded an
agreement with Peru by which they ob
tain entire control of all her guano de
posits for a term of twenty years for
twenty million dollars, five millions of
which have already been paid. Should
the report prove correct, as Americans
we may rejoice that our citizens have
superseded the English in control of this
lucrative business: but as farmers we
shall probably have no cause for exulta
tion, as experience has taught us that
American capitalists are as eager asths
greediest foreigners to wring the greatest
profit from the American farmer.
