Gl last letter from Central
I America. I Khali deal with
business Tonrtltlotn and the
possibilities of the countries
If they can be placed titmn n
ound financial basis. The present situa
tion In abnormal. Central America Is
the richest vpart of tho North American
Continent, and Its people are among the
poorest of our whole hemisphere. Us
JaountaJns have gold, sliver and copper
frnd Its hillsides grow the best coffee on
Erth. It lies In the front doorvald of
a United States, the world's greatest
tnarket, and It can produce troplcul
twits which would bring In gold by the
millions. Nevertheless tho bulk of the
people are paupers, and the fore'gn bond
bolder hangs around Its neck more
peavlly than the Old Man of the Sea
Jxound that of Slnhad the Sailor.
Should n tiulMst-ltl Cnip Ire
Central America tfhould be the Indus
trial empire of the North American con
tinent, and Ha population as rtch as any
pn the face pf the globe. Look at It! Tim
country begins at Mexico and runs to tho
trthmus of Panama. It skirts the Paclflo
Jcean for a distance as great as from
New York to Detroit, and Its extreme
Wdth la as far as from Washington city
to Boston. It has so much land that. In
the words of John Hnrrett, our great
Specialist on all things concerning Iatlu
America, "if It could' be lifted up and
laid down on our Atlantic states It would
Cover all of New England and leave
Enough over to make n blanket sufficient
to tuck In New York. Pennsylvania and
Jfew Jersey." As to the Individual re
publics, Honduras In almost as big as
Pennsylvania. Guatemala Is almost the
Eio of Mississippi. Nicaragua Is equal
i New York and Costa nica to Vermont
pnd New Hampshire conib'ned, while
Salvador Is about the size of New Jersey.
This territory has a population which
(B fast crowding t.ooo.o.i. Here In Guate
fnala we have 180,000. Salvador has more
than 1,000,000. Honduras over 500,005 and
posta Itlca and Nicaragua have, rospec
lively. 4O5.0O0. The only country that Is
t all thickly peopled Is Salvador. Our
ffew Kngland and middle Atlantic states
E. about elal In size to Central Amer-
They had at the last census a popu
lon of 37,000.600, and there Is no doubt
t that Central America could support'
10,000.000 or so more than It has.
Mighty Debt Load.
And now let mc give you some Idea of
the mighty debt load whiuti hangs from
Central America's neck. The money was
borrowed for railroads and other develop
ments, but tho most of It has gone Into
the pockets of the officials, anl today
Jhere Is hardly a government here which
Is not honeycombed with corruption and
The debts are cnojmous. Here In
Bautemala the gold-loans have run hlgli
Into the millions. They amounted to
more than tH.OOO.000 1903. The local
currency Is now worth 6 cents on tho
flollar, and American dollar Is equal to
Ighteen of the dollars of Uautnmala,
In Honduras the situation Is worse,
ffhat country Iftis a'populatun of less
than 500,000, and Its foreign debt Is
H2e,00a.000 and more.- If the people should
pay it In full they would have to be
assessed, $250. per lea(j) or abollt j, jvy, per
tamlly. a thing which Is evidently out of
the question when we remember that
' nany of them work for only a few cents
0 day. .
Xo you wonder that Honduras can't pay
Us interest? Tho bulk of Its debt was
contracted more than forty years ago,
and It has paid no interest whatever
ince 1S72. Indeed, the most of the debt
Is Interest. The original loans footed up
cmly about t27,000,000, but the Interest ha
Climbed until It Ib now more than three
times tho amount of the original loans.
Nicaragua has a foreign debt of S9.000,
W0 pr SIO.000,000, the Salvador debt Is
ftbout tn.000,000, and that of Costa Itlca
in 110 was mora than J15.000.000, of which
W.OOO.OOO or'17,004,000 was Interest. In ad
dltlon to these vast sums every country
has Its Internal debt, and In most of them
the currency Is far below par.
Where Uncle Snm Ciimra In.
And now let us see where Uncle Sam
Pomes In. In the first place, he Is In
terested in tho present situation on ac
pount of the Monroe doctrine. We cannot
Njiave European nations Interfering with
affairs In southern North America, and
especially now as we have the Panama
canal. Nevertheless tho most of this
debt is owing to Kurope, and the powers
thero Intimate that If we make them keep
their hands off wo ought to see
fchat they get back the money they have
loaned. The foreign bondholder In many
ja.ca would bo glad of the return of the
principal, lacking the Interest, but they
fiiiy tho United States should mako ttje
Credit of Central America good. This
Can only be dono by treaty arrangement
Which will glvo us tlui supervision and
application to the foreign debts of the
Customs collections, as was dono 14 the
pass of Santo Domingo, resulting In the
piping out of revolution and the putting
ef that country on a good business basis.
tThis, in short, Is tho proposition of the
United States government.
"With a view to this end Tpnventlons
are now pending or have been entered
Into with severnl of the governments,
and, based upon them, new loans
" amounting to millions of dollars aro
ready; for use. It was to further this
movement that Secretary K,nox mado his
trip to Central America. He cumo Into
contact with the presidents of the repub
lics and told then! that they ought to ob
serve the obligations of tho Washington
conventions, which they had entered Into
through their representatives. He de
manded (hat proper economic conditions
bo established., and here In Guatomala he
practically told President Cabrera that
the currency must bo. reformed and the
financial obligations provided for.
The IlonilnruM IJ.-lit.
For the ordinary man tq understand
the financial situation In thse Central
American republics Is not easy. Take
Jhla mutter of Honduras, where a coun
try about as big as New York, with "
population of about MO.CCO, owes I126,W.
C00. The loans were made between 1SU7
and 1S70, and upon them for forty years
Jio interest has been paid. The louns, as
1 have said, are altogether about 127,000.
000, and S16,.C0 of this bears Interest
at 10 per cent per annum, while on over
HU.WU.OOO the Interest rate is between 6
and 7 per cent. The bonds are largely
wned In Kngland, and the Urltish bond
holders proposed an arraignment about
three years ago to settle on certain con
ditions. Among theso was one provision
that tbo debt was to be a lien on the
customs, and another, was that the
tariffs were lo be catsed. They also pro
posed to bring the chief railroads under
foreign control and to do other things
and Bonds of Sister
r (V , ,0Qflw vi
which would seriously
To this the United States objected, and
Honduras then asked our State depart
ment to arrange for a loan. This was
provided for In connection with J. P.
Morgan & Co. It wus proposed to settle
with the foreign bondholders at 15 cents
on the dollar, and to this they agreed.
The security for tho loan was to be the
customs receipts of the government and
the loan was to be big, enough to settle I
the foreign debt, adjust the domestic dobt
and to give funds for railroad construc
tion and other Internal Improvements as
soon aa the country was In condition for
them. The loan was to consist of bonds,
which were to be sold at SS cents on the
dollar. This arrangement was made at
Washington, but It failed to be ratified by
the Hondurati government, and since then
arrangements have been made with New
Orleans bankers who ar associated with
the bankers of New York.
One reason for tho rejection- of the Mor
gan proposition was tile selling of the
bonds at 88, which the financiers here say
was a very fair deal and more. than Is
usually paid for Central American bonds.
Tin- AanetH of HiiniliiriiK.
The question as to the payment of any
debt depends on tho assets of the debtor.
I am told here that Honduras haa re
sources which will enable It to pay any
debt of this kind it might contract. If
the customs receipts be properly handled
and the people kept freo from revolutions
the country will develop rapidly, and,
with funds for Internal improvements
and railroads, will soon be about the rich
est of all Central American republics.
Honduras Ib rich In timber, Including
mahogany and dye woods, and It has
great agricultural possibilities Cacao,
cotton, sugar, cane, coffee, tobacco and
other tropical and subtropical products
can be grown on the lowlands,, while far
ther up thero are Immense pastures fit
for grazing. With rapid transit to New
Orleans, thero Is no reason why Hon
duras should not he one of the fruit gar
dens of the United States. The banana
Is said to grow wild In all pirts of It
below 3,000 feet, and the banana ship
ments now average about tl.000,000 a year.
There are good coffee lands throughout
the hill country at altltudesof about
1,600 feet and upward, and lower down
are sugar lands so connected with moun
tain streams that their refineries could
be run with water power.
As to mines. Americans are largely In
terested in them in different parts of
Honduras, and some of tho mineral prop
erties arc valuable. Altogether, 700 mines
of various kinds have been denounced,
and there, aro placer deposits In the beds
of the rivers from which the native
women are taking gold, washing It out
through a sieve. The Hosurlo mine, not
far from the capital, has been operated
for over thirty years, and from It alone
has come gold, and silver to the amount
of (16,000,000. Honduras has rich deposits
of lead, copper and also of Iron, zinc,
nickel and coal.
. The Cnsc of Nlcnrnwun.
The possibilities of Nicaraugua are
equally good, That country has an area
of 49,000 square tnljes, and the greater
part of this Ih good land. The mountains
contain large deposits of gold and silver,
and more thun '00 gold mines nre regis
tered in the bureau of statistics of the
republic. American and Kngllsh com
panies havn secured mining concessions
and as it Is now the principal mines on
the west qoast aro In the hands of Eng
lish capitalists. There are rich placer
mines on the Atlantic slope, and also
qiiartr. mines and goldbearlng reefs. I
was told in Costa Itlca that if conditions
c;yi be made In Nicaragua Its min
eral deposits 'will be rapidly opened and
that much American capital Is now ready
for Investment their.

Its coffee Is of the finest quality and
thero aro extensive la,ndg which could be
devoted lo sugar. The present product of
the plantations Is . already more thtn
Jl,W,CO0 a year and the biggest augur
estate of Central America Is located
there. There nre also extensive banana
plantations, the fruit going to New Or
leans, while unite a large area Is devoted
to the ra'slng of cocoa,- tl'e Industry being
subsidized by the government. At prus

try, selling at from 20 to 23 cents ijnr

If It should be carried out It will result
,n the putting of that country on a sound
basis secued by the customs. The loan
will lead tox a stable'ourreucy in a land
whi-ro the papor money has been worth
as low as 4 cents on the dollar. It would
alto br'ns about a railroad development
backed by American capital, a road huv
Irg been planned from Lake Nicaragua to
the east coast, forming In connection with
tl.at lake a transcontinental route across
tVntral America, There Is no doubt but
that the Inlnrest could bo paid by the
customs, which would probably 'ncrease
through our management. During the
pending of the treaty the government
the e put the customs under Air. Clifford
U. Ham, former collector at the port of
Manila, and under his administration the
receipts have almost trebled.

sltion to the loan, and when Secretary
Knox visited Nlcoragua a plot was made
to blow up his train as It passed over
a bridge. This was discovered through
tho premature explosion of a cartridge
and the dynamite removed. Forty men
wcro arrested as being connected with
Cnntii Hlon nnd Sulrnilor,
As to the Costa Rlcan debt, that coun
try has bettor credit than any other of
the-Crmtral . American republics, and its
fidanoes nre moro honestly managed. Its
foreign debt In 1910 waa about 16,000,000.
of which almost half was arrears of In
terest. The bondholders met together,
however, last January and made a settle
ment which cut down this amount almost
half, and the Interest rate was only 4 or
S per cent.
The Costa Illcan resources are" very
great, and the republic has revenue at
present of about J 1, 000,000 per annum.
As to Salvador, It owes nearly tll.OOO.OOO.
It borrowed t7,OO0,O00 In 1SS9 to start the
railroad which runs In from Acajutla to
Atenas, a distance of thlrty-flvc miles.
Only seven miles of tho railroad were
built with that money, the balance going
to tho politicians. Ten years later the
government, finding that the railway did
not pay. converted part of the national
dobt Into securities of the Salvador Rail
way company, agreeing to pay that com
pany a subsidy of Jl 15,000 a ytar. This
road belongs to the British, and It has
been extended to Salvador City and Santa
Ana. The Salvador republic has set aside
certain customs duties to liquidate Its
foreign debt, and among these Is a tax
of 1.6 cents on every pound of Imports
brought into the country, and an export
duty of 40 cents on each 100 pounds of
Dollars r. nullrla.
The policy of the United States as to
these Central American debts has been
called dollar diplomacy. I understand
the State department docs not object to
the name, saying that the object Is to
reduce tho dollars the people are paying
In the way of taxes and to eliminate tlio
bullets "of tho frequent revolutions. They

How She Discarded
,,, , i
(Monu Morrow In Town Tattler.)
How often I exclaimed as I beheld my 1
ug.y complexion In the mirror. "If I onlv
could tear off t'! old skin!" And do you
know, I've learned how to do that very
thing? Not to actually remove the entire
skin all of a sudden; that would be too
herolo a method and painful, too, I Im
agine. The worn-out cuticle comes off In
such tiny particles, and so gradually re
quiring about ten days to complete the
transformation It doesn't hurt a bit. Day
by day the beautiful complexion under
neath comes forth. Marvelous! No mat
ter how muddy, rough, blotchy or aged
your complexion, you can surely discard
It by this simple process. Junt get an
ounce of ordinary mercollzed .wax at your
druggist's, apply like cold cream, wash
ing It off mornings.
My wrinkles I got rid of by an equally
simple method. liy dissolving un ounce
of powdered saxollte In a half-pint witch
hazel and bathing my fare In tho solution,
every line completely disappeared. First

It Is so compounded, and contains such
