The mosquito nuitauce has been somewhat reduced ny
theme of wire screens which shut out the insects but this
is a relief within the reach of the rich only partially effect
ive at the best and of no avail to those who do not care to
be hut up in their houses during summer The true course
to be pursued is to kill off the mosquitoes but this has been
regarded as impossible because of the great number of Ihc
insicts and the supposed immense breeding places in the
swamps around the city
ny thorough Jnestimation would have snown 11 to the
contrary lone ago but it was not made Recent investigations
have proved that the task is far less ilifticult than imagined
and practical experiments have demonstrated that the mos
quito nuisance can be lightened if not entirely destroyed
It js shown for instance that the mosquitoes arc not
blown in from the swamp as formerly supposed except in
extraordinary winds but that they arc bred 111 or near the
houses which they pester that they live only a few days and
would soon disappear if they v ere not replenished by new
swaruisj While troublesome and difficult to net rid of after
thebaic hatched the eggs and larvae arc easily destroyed by

Tho communltyoMntcrost schomo for tho mnnago

OUR SELFSUFFICIENCY

can snap our flngors at tho rest ot tho world Having
onough and moro than enough for our own needs wo
can compel olhor countries to buy from us though wo
do not buy from thorn by tho process ot starvation As
ho puts it
There is no doubt that this country within 1 few months
will be in a position to ignore every other Nation on the globe
in the matter of food products We shall produce within our
own domain everything that troes upon our table and upon
our backs We shall then be commercially and industrially
almost independent of the other Nations of the world Hence
any trade combination which may be effected against us will
count for nothing Whenever we get ready we can come
pretty near starving any other Nation Therefore an effect
ive combination against us will bo an impossibility

citizen Monterey

throw much light on the manner In which they
the land of God and liberty and it will also prove of eape

Monterey and is as follows
that tne1 ong
It became definitely known here today
de Bajan Mining
drawnout litigation between the Norias
city is about to
company aud Mr Wiliam II Mealy of this
assume a new phase
for 2ooo
The claim against ihc Mexican government
that the orderly processes
000 gold was based upon the claim
of the courts were interfered with by illegal means ana in
fluences Inducing the latter under duress to return vc c
against him by which he has been wronged and defraudea
the amount named
The litigation between Mr Mealy and the Nonas ue
Bajan company has been in progress for four jearsand was
brought about by the constant and Irregular opposition oi j
fered by the company in the administrative departments ot
titles to the issue o
the government which issues mining
a title to Mr Mealy The part played by this department
during these four years has been commented upon freely by
mining men in all sections of the republic and there has
been unsparing criticism of its palpable inefficiency not to
say dishonesty It is asserted that the scandals in the depart
ment were the cause of the recent appointment of a new
minister of Fomcnto who in turn gave his office force a
muchneeded cleaning out
This case has been productive of many sensational fea
tures Mr Mealy was at one time driven from his own property
mob by representatives of the
erty by an armed employed
mining company and later a plot to throw him into a Mexi
can dungeon was frustrated at the last moment
The suit originally grew out of the location by Mr Mealy
of some ground a portion of which had at an earlier date
been located by the Norias de Bajan company but subsequent
ly abandoned by them Mr Mealy conformed strictly to all
the requirements of Mexican mining laws and but for the
almost immediate discovery of valuable mineral bodies in the
property he would undoubtedly be now in undisturbed pos
session This discovery was followed by the return to the
company through intrigues and irregularities in the treasury
department of the identical portions of ground which the
company had abandoned and which the government had of
ficially published as abandoned and open to entry The de
cision of the treasury department in this instance has been
denounced by the ablest legal talent of Mexico and it left
Mr Mealy no recourse but an appeal to the courts which he
has thus far uneffectivcly made The case has gone through
the State courts and in spite of the most absolute proof of
the legality and justice of Mr Mealys claims the decisions
have invariably been averse tohim
These decisions so far as the lower State courts arc con
cerned it is alleged arc due to outright bribery and sub
ornation of perjury The action of the superior courts in up
holding these decisions has been due to influences said to
have emanated from sources high in the Federal govern
ment One further appeal is yet open to Mr Mealy but real
izing that the influences referred to have it in their power to
coerce the courts he confidently expects to encounter the
same malign influences in the higher courts of the Nation
as have defrauded him of his rights in the State courts and
hence is prcuaring to seek the interposition of his home gov
ernment
Early in the litigation Mr Mealy and his attorneys were
forced to recognize the fact that his opponents of the Norias
de Bajan company who were natives with political and
financial connections would be able to influence the courts in
such a manner as to compel a resort to other channels for
redress and they began at once to lay the foundation for an
appeal to the Mexican Federal government through the de
partment of state at Washington At each successive step in
the illegal processes and acts done against him the most
convincing written proofs of fraud and wrongdoing were
compiled and when the record is laid before the state de
partment at Washington an astounding story of rascality
bribery and official maladministration will be developed and
proved to the smallest detail During the last two years the
ground owned by Mr Mealy but wrongfully in the posses
sion of the Norias de Bajan company has been developed
into a bonanza
The company has shipped to the smelters in Monterey
more than one million dollars worth of ore and herc are
vast bodies of rich ore still in the mine
An idea of the great value of the property may be gath
ered from the fact that after a million dollars worth of ore
had been extrated the Gugenhcim Exploration company was
willing to pay 750000 gold for a clear title to the property
The mining company refused to sell for less than 1000000
gold
The ease has been watched with the keenest interest by
the mining men and foreign investors generally in Northern
Mexico They arc anxious to know if extensive property
holdings in the republic will be protected by the courts or if
after having brought a property into a high state of produc
tiveness they are to be defrauded of their rewards through
the manipulation of the courts by or their subserviency to
the influences of State or other officials
Mr Mealy is oneof the best known Americans in Mex
ico and enjoys an enviable reputation among the leading
men where he is known He is also highly connected in the
United States and can command the influence of well known
public men who enjoy the closest relations with the adminis
tration at Washington These gentlemen will assist him in
the preparation and presentation of his case before the state
depaitment
A preliminary statement of the controversy has been
laid officially before the state department which has indi
cated Its readiness to proceed when the farts have been pre
scntcd in detail
