Whrn tho revolution in Honduras was about to develop into a great test be? tween Zelaya and Cabrera, Involv tng all four republics ln n declstve war, the Unlted States and Mexlco ln tervoned and croated a peace tribunal. Andrew- Carnegle gave 1100,000 for a peace bulldlng, which has Juot been completed at Cartago. Last July another war broke out ln Honduras. Then Honduras accus-i-l Guatemala and Salvador of belng mi pllcated in It. Honduras made chargos to the peace trlbuijal,- und last Deccm ber the tribunal rendered a decision not sustalnlng the charges. Zelaya nnd Davilla were Incensed. and especially as Davilla clalmed to have absolute evldence that tbc revolution was started from Salvador. Davilla In his message to Congress denouuced Cabrera. The Guatemalan mlntster to Honduras demanded Instant apology and oxpulsion from the congresslonal records of the offensive ianguage, and Davilla ylelded. Thls was followed by withdrawal ol i Guatemala's and Salvador's mlnlsters, from Honduras. Three weeks ago the situatlon be- | came so acute that the Washington governmeift sent a hot message to every one of the republics warnlng them that the flndlng of the Cartago court must be respeeted. and that tho fitst rne to commit an avert act would feel the consetiuences of arraetl Inter? ventlon by the Cnited States and Mexlco. The Unlted States and Mexlco have much cause to complam of treatment of their citizens. especially in NIca? ragua and Honduras. The Unlted States has been unfortunate in prospectlng claims in NIcaragua. The most important of these Is the Kinery claim, regardlng a mahogany concc3 sion to a Boston synuicate. -_?_???
