Will Have Voice In Naming of
Managua. Nicaragua, Dec. If.?
Joet Santo? Zelaya has resigned
from the presidency of Nicaragua.
Ma placed his raalgnatlon In the
handa of congreas this morning. Ap?
parently there was no other course
for hlan to take. The people were
at laat aroused. The guna of the
revolutionists threatened. The war?
ship* of the United States lay In
Nicaragua n ports.
Managua haa been seething tor
du ye. The spirit of revolt haa apread
even to the gate* of the palace. Ze?
laya surrounded hlm*Jf with an
armed guard. Unchecked, the pop?
ulace have marched through the
etrteta, crying Tor the end of the old,
proclaiming the new regime.
Who will take up tha ralna no one
know* or cares. It la sufficient that
Zelaya at dlcUtor will be known no
-esfcore. There la no doubt that con
-ffeae will act quickly on hla raalg?
natlon for the people have demand?
Dr. Joae Madrla, Judge of the Cen?
tral American court of Justice at
Cartage, who haa bean cloae to Ze?
laya and la now his choice for presi?
dent, will arrive have on Saturday.
Madrls haa hla following, strong and
Influential even among the revolu?
tionists, but Oan. Eatrada, under
whose command la the great body of
fighting Insurgents, will have none
of him. Estrada's word will bear
weight In the choice of a prealdent.
Zelaya haa known, too, that Mad
rls Is not acceptable to the United
States and he has sought to learn
who would be looked upon with fav?
or by that government aa his succea
Accompanying his resignation, Ze?
laya aent the following message to
"The painful circumstances In
whtch the country Is plunged call for
acta of patriotism on the part of the
good cltisens who are the witnesses
of the oppression of tha republic by
the heavy hand of fate. The coun?
try la ataggerlng under a shameless
revolution which threatens the na?
tion's sovereignty and a foreign na?
tion unjustly Intervenes In our af?
fairs, publicly providing tha rebels
with arras, which haa only resulted
In their being defeated everywhere
through tha heroism of our troops.
"To avoid further bloodshed and
for the reaaon that the revolutionists
have declared that they would lay
down their arma when I surrender
the executive power, 1 hereby place
In the hands of the national assem?
bly tha abandonment of the remain?

be filled by a subject of their choos?

A commission of five deputies was
appointed to draft a bill loklng to
the acceptance of Zelaya'a realgha
tlon, which Is now considered a mere
formality. Newe of the president's
action spread through the city and
soon great crowds moved through
the etreete shouting for the United
States, Estrada and the revolution.

"Callable of Coping With Antag?
In advertising for a man for a re?
sponsible position a firm stated,
among other qualifications, that he
must be "capable of coping with an?
tagonism, " says Orison Sweet Mar
den in Success Magazine.
Evidently, what this firm wanted
was a young man with backbone and
grit and stamina, who was not easi?
ly discouraged; one who would not
? stop or give up when obstacles con?
Many men who are gatnts when
everything goes smoothly are com- |
pletely paralyzed when they meet
with antagonism or friction. When
everything goes their way, when
there Is no trouble or hitch any
where, they are strong, resourceful,
Inventive; they Impress you with
their power, but the moment they
strike a snag, meet adverse condi?
tions, their courage oozes out.
I have In mind a man who is a
perfect whirlwind, who can accom?
plish marvels when everything is go?
ing smoothly in his busness, but if
one of his chief lieutenants sends In
his resignation, or if he has differ?
ences with his partners, or his firm
meets with any loss, he is immediate?
ly shorn of power and becomes a
His mental processes are com?
pletely moralized* by the least bit of
friction or discord. When there is
trouble anywhere he is perfecetly
miserable; when harmony is restor?
ed he is a giant. I have never seen
so strong a man rendered so com?
pletely helpless when he has any
trouble whatever, or when things
are going wrong anywhere.
Now, the really strong man braces
up, rises to the occasion In propor?
tion to the difficulties to be over?
I was recently talking with a youn^
man of this kind who occupies a
? high position in a large firm, and he
j told me that he n< ? er allows him
t self to go to the proprietor with his
J troubles, with any difficulty, how
| ever, great, unless i: was one which
j might seriously affect the firms* rev
I enues. He considered that he was
I paid for solving the business prob
| lems that presented themselves, and
that he must fight them out alone.
That Is the kind of employee that
is wanted everywhere?the man who
can solve his own problems, fight his
own battles, without running to his
superior with every little difficulty
that confronts him.
That's the Question.
Little Prue was much interested in
Miss D-, who had lost her voice,
and one day came to her and said,
