A Colossal Htatua of CbrUtMade
From Melted Cannon.
ln 1'jOO, Argentina, and Chile,
'filter republics, were on the
brink of war. It was the revival
of an old dispute about bounda
ry lines. On Easter Sunday
Bishop Benavente, of Argentina,
made a thrilling appeal for a
statue of Christ to guard the
frontier, where it could be een
by all t ravelers between the two
countries. The two angry na
tions calmed themselves; King
Edward of England was asked to
be arbitrator; and both countries
quietly acquiesced in his decis
ion. Then both began to disarm.
Chile has turned an arsenal into
a school of trades. By reducing
her army and navy expenses she
is saving millions of dollars, and
is spending them in making good
road through the land, and in
building a much needed break
water in the harbor of Valparai
To signalize and perpetuate
this victory of peace, and the
good bishop's suggestion, second
ed now by the mothers of Argen
tina. was followed. A colossal
statue of Christ, made of bronze
from melted cannon, was dedica
ted March 13, 1904, on the bound
ary line, fourteen thousand feet
above the sea. One hand holding
his cross- of sacrifice, the other
uplifted to heaven, the Christ of
Andes stands on the heights be
tween the two countries, bless
ing them both as they rest below
him in peace. Hie inscription
reads: "Sooner shall these moun
tains crumble to dust than Arg
entines and Chilean break the
lcace which, at the feet of Christ
the Redeemer, they have sworn
The. sUtue has been standing
there something over a year.
Within that year Brazil and Bo
livia have settled an old dispute,
the former paying the latter an
indemnity of ten millions of dol
lars; while Chile and Bolivia have
made a treaty of peace and friend

her late foe to build railroads
