High Prices and Cheap Money in Guatemala
(CopyriRht, 19JX hy Frank d. Carpenter
rATmCAUY C1TV Talk rtbo-tt
hlfrh prhes In the t nltcd
States; They nr nothing
compared to hlRh prices In
Guatemala. I havo been here
With mv stanoennhF fnr i
last few weeks, and my average expends
have been about CW per day. Uist wn.lt
cost mo over and my regular board
at the. principal hotel Is Jiaj )i 0n. I
had a carriage this afternoon fjr thr?e
hours at J1S an hour, and even- tlm 1
take a mule rldo over the country the
charge for the animal Is JJ6 per day
Everything is In the eanie ratio. It costs
M cents to post a letter and 15 cents for
R postal card. I tried to buy an English
saddle. In a harncis store this niornlnfr,
and the price for It was J1.S00. could
not afford It, and went to the stationery
Mora aoross the way. where I was
charged a dollar for a lead pencil and $3
for the note book In which I am writing.
Lnnd of the Stx-Ccnt DolUr,
Indeed, the prices are terrible. Hut they
are not so bad when you find that they
are paid only In the currency of tho coun
try. The Guatemala dollar has been
steadily frolns down, and It Is now worth
Just about 8 cents of our money. You can
Ret seventeen or eighteen Guatemalan
dollars for an American dollar, nnd In
order to figuro out tho real cost you
must divide by seventeen. All tho bills
are paid in paper, nnd the money Is
worth so llttlo that It Is a trouble to
carry It. Flvo thousand dollars In gold
changed into Jl bills would give you a
largo pillowcase full, and as I am wrltlnir
all my pockets are bulging wtth dollars.
I drow 40 on my letter of credit at tho
bank today, and for this the cashier
handed me 3,600 of theso Guatemalan sl
moleoni. Somo of It was In $100 bills,
but tu) most of It wns In petty tens and
twenties and $5 notes, such as one gives
for a fee.
Whllo I stood H the bank window a
man came up to make a deposit. He had
a bundle under his arm which looked
Ilk, a package of laundry. He laid It on
the counter and took off the string and
the dirty bills, by a gust of wind, were
blown over the floor. They wcro finally
gathered together and It took over twenty
minutes to count them. What the amount
was I do not know, but It was probably
under $1,000, In gold.
Indeed, thtf currency .hero reminds mo
of that of our southern confederacy at
the close of tho war, tho value of which
wao well shown In a story told by Gen
eral Gordon. As tho general wns riding
along one day ho bb,w a man with a very
flno horse and said:
"That's a good animal, my man, I will
glvo you $3,000 for Mm."

Willi Why, I Just paid $3,000 to havo him
Crnsy for Gold.
As a result of this poor currency tho
peoplo are crazy for gold. In tho busi
ness sections there are money changers
in every block and every one wants to
chango his paper for gold. The proprietor
of my hotel grabs at each gold coin, and.
one of the priests I met In the cathedral
asked me to exchange gold for G-eent
dollars. It Is the same at the American
club. I was offered $i,H there for a $10
gold piece and I am told that thero havo
been times when one could buy $25 in
Guatemala for-$l American. The value of
gold changes every day and a special de
mand for It sends tho currency kiting.
At the same time tho wages on tho
estates are paid In currency and tho In
dians receive onjy a few cents of our
money per day. Somo think this Is good
business. They say that tho planters get
work for Guatemala dollars, while their
Exports aro paid for In gold. If tho In
dian gets $3 a day lie Is really receiving
only 18 cents and ho Is more often paid
10 or 12 cents. This Is said to bo
one of tho theories of President Cabrera.
Connlry of I2nriitnu Itmntirrc,
The fact Is, the position of Guatemala
Is much like that of a bankrupt who
still has one of the richest, gold mines
of the world under his feel. The natural
resources of tho codntry are valuable be
yond description. Guatemala nbounds In
Hch mineral deposits. It Is known to
havo gold, silver, copper, iron and lead,
but the country Is prnctically unpros-
pectcd. It has some of the best coffee
soil of tho world and It exports from
80,000,000 to 100,000,000 pounds every, year.
It has rich grazing Innds, nnd It will
grow rubber, cotton and BUgar. There is
no country on earth which will 'produco
better or more bananas per acre than the
Motogua valley, and It has in addition
vast forests of timber, Including mahog
any, cedar and dye woods. All the coun
try needs Is money to make It blossom
llko the roso nnd to bring into use Its
vnst resources In lands, mines and labor.
Tho labor problen's based upon the In
dian population, which amounts to more
than l.DOO.OOO In number, and It Is not
difficult to handle. If tho country could
have a big enough loan to put It on"a
fold basis it would soon become one of
the richest lands of this, hemisphere. It
Is in tho front dooryard of tho United
States. It Is within two days by steamer
of New Orleans and It has only thirty
miles of railroad track to build to unite
Guatemala City with the railroad sys
tems of the United States.
In the first place, however, tho govern
ment will havo to securo Its foreign debt,
which Is now held In Europe and In, our
country, and then to mako some krhd of
an arrangement as to tho currency. A
number of loans have been arranged for
from time to time In New York, but for
one reason or other, and chiefly on ac
count of the opposition of the Germans,
they have failed to go through. Such
arrangements are still pending, and they
will probably result In the regeneration
of the country.
German Cnpltnl In GiinteiunJa.
As It Is now, tho Germans are the great
leeches on the body politic. They aro
sucking tho life blood out of the business
and aro grabbing after everything In
sight. I am told that their Investments
In coffee plantations alono amount to
upward of $60,000,000 and that S3 per cent
of the coffee estates belong to them.
They aro ready to buy the balance and
It Is said that there aro $20,000,000 now In
Germany for Investment hero.
The Germans havo got their hold on tho
country by watching the finances and
buying at every time of financial dU
tress. They took over the coffee planta
tions some years ago by loaning money
right and left when coffee was high.
Then coffee fell, there was a poor crop,
and the planters who borrowed could not
pay their Interest. The mortgages wero
foreclosed and as no one was able to buy,
the Germans took In the best estates at
their own prices.
The great trouble as to this German
owm-iBhlp Is absentee landlordism. The
coffee all goes abroad and th money
stays there, whllo the plantations are
worked with Indian labor at from 10 to
15 cents a day. This small wage Is prac
tically nil that Guatemala gets out of its
Jcitlou of iiirrlran.
The Germans are very Jealous of Amer-'
leans and they are secretjy opposing
every American Investment. They have
done this as to all electrical propositions,
and they want to keep the Americans out
of the wholesale and retail trade. As It
Is now the largest stores belong to them
and they have their drummers going over
the countrv. Much t.f the business Is
very profitable, and this Is so of all
banking and mercantile enterprises.
The ordinary interest rate is 10 per cent
and the pawnbrokers get 6 per cent a
month. The chief banks have franchises
from the government and they make
loans in return for tho right to issue cer
tain amounts of currency which, as I
havs shown, Is worth now only 6 rents on
the dollar. Altogether there aro six
banks, each of which has a capital rang,
lng from $V0O0.WO to W.OOO.OtO In gold.
There ought to be a big American bank
hould be financed
ruler the Monroa
certain extent for Its busliieM arrange
ments, and to keep other nations from
enforcing their claims wo shall havo to
arrange for tho debts.
Some Illit Aiuorlvftit InvcatntenlN.
Within tho Inst few years considerable
American capital has como Into this
country. Tho .Motagua valley and Its
banana lunds belong to tho United Fruit
company, which hns there many thou
sand acres, nnd about SO.miO, 1 believe,
already planted to bananas. The rail
roads of tho country nro In the hands of
Americans, nnd thoy havo big schemos
for controlling the transportation. They
will eventually complete the . system In
conjunction with Mexico, and will ex
tend their lines through tho country south
of this to tho Isthmus of Panama.
Americans own the shipping which
comes to Guatemala. The United Fruit
company has steamers twice a week to
New Orleans, and It frequently Bonds
ships to New York. Its steamers fly the
Kngllsh flag and they have Kngllsh com
manders, but they are bought with Amer
ican money nnd they carry llttlo else hut
American freight and passengers. The
rea.ym why the frujt company uses suoh
steamers Is because under tho navigation
laws nil steamers sailing under tho Amer-.
lean flag must be built In tho United
States, and ships can be bought moro
cheaply In England.
The English steamers are not always
ratlsfnctory to tho American passenger.
The English captain Is sometimes In
clined to bo cocky and to show his pref
erence for his own country. On a voyngo
a few weeks ago an American woman
took the American flag which was hung
nt one jddo of tho sideboard In thn
saloon and raised It up a llttlo hl?hcr
than the Hrltlsh flag which decorated
the other side. Rlio thought this a Joke,
but tho English captain did not see It
that way, and ho thereupon ordered the
stoward to pull clown tho American flag
nnd leave up the British.
American Trade. (
If the trade hero were rightly handled It
might bo monopolized by tho Americans,
but as It is the Germans havo moro than
half as much as wo have nnd tho English
are very close to them. Our export to
Guatemala run between $2,000,000 and
$3,000,000 a year, and Germany and tho
United Kingdom each trends over a
million. Germany buys a great deal
moro than wo do and the United King
dom nlmost half as much.
Our trade Is not propeny worked!" Wo
should do as tho Germans. Wo should
send drummers hero who know tho lan
guage and who havo lived long enough In
Latin America to know tho people, Wo
should send out our catalogue In the
language of tho country and not In Eng
lish, ns wo aro now doing.
Speaking of this, 1 heard a story yes
terday from a woman who had been
traveling on one of' the river steamers.
She was standing near tho furnace when
she asked tho native engineer whnt sort
of fuel he employed. He replied: "Wo
use'somo coal and a little wood, but tho
most of the fuel Is composed of catalogues
sent by American business firms printed
for tho Guatemala trade In a language
tho merchants cannot understand,
Another fault with Americans trying to
do .business In Guatemala Is that they
do not understand the postal rates, They
know thut 2 cents will carry a letter to
Mexico, Canada or Panama and suppose
the same sum will carry It to any part
of Central America. This Is not true.
Letters coming hero require tj-cent postage
and even- letter sent with Ju.t a 2-cent
stamp Is subject to a fine of SO cents or
more, which Is paid by the man who re
ceives It. Catalogues underpaid havo a
similar fine. The result Is that a merchant
gets an advertising catalogue with from
50 to SO cents due on It. Ho pays this
amount and then finds that ho cannot
read the catalogue, for It is printed in
About half tho business letters which
como hero are underpaid and thoo who
receive them must pay extra postuge be
fore they will be delivered, Ono of the
leading .hankers here has Just told me of
his experience with a bank In St Louis.
,The St. 1ouIh bank sent a letter request
ing Information bearing a 2-cent stamp,
The man paid ) cents extra postage to
get It and then worte a courteous letter
to the banker and pointed out tho mis
take and annoyance such mistakes
caused. In reply ho received an apologetic
letter from tho president of tho St. Louis
bank Inclosing 30 cents worth of Amer
ican stamps, which he could not use. The
letter Inclosing thoe stamps alto bore
a 2-cent stamp and tho Guatemalan
banker had to pay 30 cents to get It. He
worto again and the samo thing happened
a third time. It took a fourth letter to
show this live St. Louis business man
that a S-cent stamp was necessary for
Guatemalan mall. All this was thank-you
business on the part of tho Guatemalan.
If Guatemala could make a loan of
something like $71,000,000 and havo this
secured by the customs I am told that It
would soon bo on easy street. Its for
eign debt now amount to under $20,00).(J.
but It has defaulted In Interest on this
again and again and tho whole has been
readjusted on a 4 per cent bas. Oj J ly
with tho foreign bondholders to that
effect, which provided that the unpaid
interest should bo wiped out at tho end
of three years. Thero was also a provi
sion ns to securing tho external debt
by tho export duty on coffeo and for
the Issuing of new bonds sufficient to dis
charge the present Hen on the coffee duty.
I am told that the local currency debt
In 1309 was over $70,000,000 In currenoy,
and It Is probably considerably moro to
day. If the currency could be wiped out
at anything llko Its present value It
would bo a great thing for tho country.
Tiixom nnd llcennrs.
At present tho chief source of tho reve
nuo is from tho coffeo export tax, which
amounts to about $1 gold a bag, As tho
coffee exports are 7O,O0O,WO or 80.COO.OCO
pounds a year, It will bo seen that this
revenuo Ih valuable. It la said that tho
government sells this tax at the begin
ning of the year to tho Guatemalan
bankers for a fixed sum, Issuing therefor
coffeo export tax certificates. Tho
bankers sell tho certificates to the coffee
exporters nnd they mako a profit of the
difference between the amount of the
certlfl'ato fiuo altie a'ld the s.im thev
pay to the goiernmeiit. and this profit
Is by no means small.
The banks also make big money from
loans. I doubt not thy made a pretty
penny out of Knox's visit, which must
have required several hundred thousand
dollars of new cash to paint up the
towns, buy American flags for the chll'
dren and champagne for the American
party. Ill sueh caes thn president often
calls upon the llanco de Guatemala, In
which Germans aro Interested Among
the chief financiers are the Stahls. who
are ready to lend at such and other times
of need, relying on getting thlr money
back with big Interest. 1 am told that
theso hankers recently bought up the
bonds of a loan which every one thought
had been repudiated. TV.ny got the bonds
for a song nnd then It was found that the
president had decided they were an hon
est debt, and should b redeemed. There
are some discontents who say that his ex
cellency President Cabrera and other
high officials shared In the profits,
