Two western states, Arizona and Cali fornia. are preparing for a big: celebration June 17, at which there will be present the governors of the states, many of the members of the two congressional delega tions and a number of other guesta The occasion will be the opening of the big Colorado river siphon. This is a piece of engineering work in connection with the Yuma irrigation project, which will ulti mately water 300,COO acres of land. The main line of the irrigation canal takes the major portion of its water out of the Colorado at the big Laguna dam, where there are the biggest sluice gates in the world, and distributes about half the water over the irrigated fields on the California side of the river. Then the re maining half of the water is carried in the siphon under the Colorado river and distributed to the fields on the Arizona side. Carries Great Amount of Water. The amount of water handled will be somewhat greater than the flow of the Potomac at Point of Rocks. The siphon is fifteen feet in interior diameter. It is 1,000 feet long and made up of sections of boiler plate lined with cement. Its low est point is 100 feet below the surface of the Colorado. The whole of the distance was through pervious sandstone, and the work had to be done under air pressure. The whole length of the tunnel while it was being carried across the river was marked by a line of bubbles where the compressed air was driving out of the water. The pressure to which the workmen were subjected varied from eighteen to fifty-seven pounds per square inch, and the difficulties were quite as great from an engineering standpoint as in driving the tunnels under the Hudson river. In spite of this, however, there was only one man killed in the course of the work. The reaeon the siphon wae used for car rying the water across the river was that the construction was Just as effective and a great deal cheaper than a viaduct would have been. ? ? ? PLANS CHURCH SERVICE FOR LEFT-HANDED FOLK Bight-Brained Pastor Also Proposes Fellowship With Portside Shake as Sign. ORANGE, N. J., May 16.? A unique church service is to be held at the First Methodist Church here next Sunday, those invited to attend all being left-handed. The pastor, the Rev. Dr. William A. Prye, who. is himself left-handed, will preach from the text, "But when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord, the Lord rais ed them up a deliverer, Ehud, the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man left-handed." The pastor's invitation saya: "Most great geniuses, though not all, are left handed, though perhaps I should say that left-handed people are geniuses. There is a real reason for it. The reason people are right-handed is that the left lobe of the brain is more developed. There is a distinct advantage in having the right lobe more developed If that side is the more developed you are left-handed. >X<eft-handed people are right-brained people and out of the ordinary. They are apt to do the interesting or unusual things. "Do you know that among the great base ball pitchers the smartest are the left-handed ones? Those southpaw fellows are in the ratio ot six to fifteen ot great players. "I have conceived the plan of organiz ing left-handed folk into a fellowship. The sign of recognition is to shake with the left hand.'" SENTBY IN ROCKING CHAIR. Mrs. Jimmerson Balks Phone Pole Setters in All-Day Siege.

The setting of the pole was accomplish ed by night just over her property line, and, although In danger of being hit by the immense pole as it was swung into position, she stuck to her post hole.

Special, full pint bottle ' tr it it MANAGUA, Nicaragua, May 10.?The people of Nicaragua have manifested much interest in the outcome of the Nicaraguan treaty with the United States. The Nicaraguan people, after the end of the Zelaya regime, found them selves in such a financial situation that they could not meet the interest on their bonds. They had defaulted on the Inter est on their foreign loans and innumer able internal and external claims against the government were brought up. In this situation they were absolutely un able to meet their obligations without outside help. They might patronize the money lenders, but the risks involved were so great that the money lenders would not advance more money except at the most usurious rates?rates which would have made it even, more impossi ble to meet their interest charges in the future than it was to meet them then. Likewise, the currency problem had grown to proportions which made it al most hopeless. In years gone by, one dollar of Nicaraguan money was worth about 19 cents American. Gradually the financial condition of the coun try grew worse and worse until a dollar Nicaraguan was worth only a little more than 4 cents. People who owed debts, based on former rates of exchange, could force their creditors to take .a dollar worth 4 cents In satisfaction of a debt which had been contracted upon the basis of a dollar worth up to 19 cents. ? * * Having no other way to escape from a situation that could maan little else than c o n 11 ikued Treaty With IT. S. r ? v o I u tion Only Way to Escape. outside pressure, Nicaragua threw itself upon the mercies of the United States and agreed that it would be willing to give the United States practical control of the customs houses of the country if Uncle Sam in turn would administer them after the manner of the customs administration in Santo Domingo. The treaty agreed to by Nicaragua is even more simple in character than that with Santo Domingo. After a recitation of the facts of the country's plight, tell ing of the seventeen years of administra tive abuses. Involving Illegal diversion of public property and revenue, the accumu lation of debts and claims, and the exist ence of ruinous and disputed concessions, Nicaragua declared its willingness to en ter Into a convention with the United States, proyiding for the refunding of its debts, the adjustment and settlement of claims against it, and the placing of its finances upon a sound and stable basis. It agreed that the loan thus negotiated should be secured by the customs rev enues of Nicaragua, and that it would not alter Its duties, or other charges af fecting the entry, exit or transit of goods during the existence of the loan without consultation and agreement with the United 8tates. It also agreed that during the term of the loan a collector general of customs, similar to the one in Santo Domingo, should be appointed subject to the approval of the President of the United States, and that he should have the full protection of both governments in the discharge of his duties. * * * The Nicaraguan government approved the treaty a year ago. Since that time It has been Measure Approved pending in About One Year Ago. United States. The Nicaraguan -govern ment is watching the situation in Wash ington very closely and is constantly hoping that the desired action by the Senate may be brought about. It must t>e said that there is a faction in Nicaragua which opposes the loan. This Se "the liberal party?the party of Zelaya?although it now repudiates any lingering friendship for its exiled leader. The liberals profess to believe that if, under the treaty, the proposed $15,000,000 should be made available for the liquida tion of the external and Internal debts of the country, for the adjustment and set tlement of claims and for the construc tion of internal improvements, there would be a tremendous lot of graft se cured from it by the party in power, and that very much of it would be diverted frem Its legitimate ends. Whether this suspicion is founded upon the liberal party's own record under Zelaya or upon other grounds, it probably is true that unless adequate safeguards are provided there would be a diversion of funds from their proper channels. The State De partment believes, however, that it can take such steps as will overcome this natural tendency of the ruling classes In these countries. ? * * In the belief that the treaty eventual ly will be ratified by the United States, a temporary loan of Temporary Loan $1.500.000.. with a ^?0?- -kt-a: subsequent additional Run ?ation. loan of $755,000 for taking care of the pressing obligations of the country and the improvement of the currency, has been negotiated with the firms of Brown Bros, and J. and W. Sellgman Company. The Nicaraguan government consented to a plan placing Clifford D. Ham, former collector of the port of Manila, in charge of the customs collections of the country, pending the ratification of the treaty by the United States. Under his administra tion the receipts of customs have in creased from $25,000 to $70,000 per month. Under this temporary agreement a part of the funds received is being used to put the currency upon a stable basis. It is the intention of the government to buy in $8,000,000 worth of the Nicaraguan un secured paper money at 12% to 1. It is Intended, after that, to set aside a large reserve fund, out of which outstanding paper money will be redeemed upon this basis. This will permit the development of a stable currency, and while It will result in a large profit to those who hold big quantities of Nicaraguan paper se cured when the exchange was 23 to 1, yet it is about the only way out of the difficulty. Another step in the direction of better finances in Nicaragua has been the or ganization of a bank, under the laws of the state of Connecticut, 51 per cent of whose stock will be owned by Brown Bros, and the Sellgmans. Nicaragua has reserved the right to acquire a cer tain percentage of the stock of the new bank whenever It desires. This bank will be a bank of issue, the government granting it the privilege of Issuing bank notes properly secured. ? * A new gold coin has been established as the real unit of value hereafter to be maintained in New Gold Coin Hade Nicaragua. It Real Unit of Value. ? to one dollar, American gold, and wUl be called the "Cordoba," in honor of one of the national heroes. If the pending treaty is ratified by the United States the whole contract which It will make effective provides for $15, 000,000, the bonds to be taken by the bankers at 00%, and bearing 5 per cent interest. The external debt of Nicaragua, with Interest In arrears, amounted January 1 to nearly $6^500,000. In 1909 there were a large number of outstanding obligations, which were consolidated In a single loan negotiated with the Ethel burga Syndicate. It is now proposed that, if the present pending loan goes through, these bonds will be reduced from 100 pounds sterling each to eighty-five pounds each, and that the rate of interest .will remain as It is today, at 6 per cent. It is also proposed that if they are re deemed by January 1, 1922, it may be done on the basis of eighty-nine pounds for each 100-pound bond, with accrued in terest. In addition to the approximately $6,500, 000 of foreign debt, there are internal claims.amounting to probably $5,000,000, which will be passed upon by a mixed commission, consisting of two Americans and a Nlcaraguan. This commission will pass upon all annulments, cancellations and modifications of concessions granted under previous administrations, some of which are illegal and unconstitutional; many of which have no reason to be con tinued, and still others of which are industrially improper. This commission will also adjust all claims arising out of the last revolution for forced loans and injuries resulting from the activities of the belligerents, yet if the loan does not go through, its awards cannot be met by the government. * * * A part of the proposed fifteen-million dollar loan will be used for the building of rT a railroad from Railroad Planned Lake Nicaragua Out of $15,000,000.ineat^ vicinity of either Bluefields, Monkey 'Point or Rama. This railroad would open up a new transcontinental high way, traversing districts rich in mines and banana lands. An English syndi cate, now operating a railroad on the Pacific slope, is anxious to build the At lantic extension in order to secure con trol of the transcontinental connections, but Nicaragua prefers to have the line built and controlled by American capital. The reason the administration in Wash ington is so anxious that the Nioaraguan treaty shall be ratified is that it will give to the United States such a con trol over the affairs of this revolutionary republic that Its warring factions will hot be able to continue the endless pro cession of revolutions and counter revo lutions. It is confidently asserted that the segre gation of the customs receipts of the country from the spoils of war will make it next to impossible for revolutions to flourish. Those who oppose the measure say that the treaty leads in the direction of foreign entanglements. They regard it as a sort of guarantee of loans made to these governments by the government of the United States. The friends of the measure, on the other hand, assert that the treaty will very much lessen the danger of foreign complications and that it will not entail any responsibilities on the part of the United States that are now in existence.
