'•yThere are prospeots of a •war betwea a
MeVico and Guatemala, and! though the
cause of tbe rupture which threatens
war ma/ seem trivial to eold~bloor\od
people ok the notaib, there is no tel'.ing
what the ht>t blood of Vthe ,swarthy peo
ple to the eouvh mar; lead ft tern to when
international disputes arise. It takss
only two men, one with a i usty sword
and the other a breach-burnt gun, to
atart a flrst-olnee revoflution .anywhere
south of the Texas border, and am inter
national war can be prowoked juat about
as easily down that way*.
On Friday the Has ai d published
aiartling rumors from San Diego, ex
clusively published thwni, by the way,
to the affect that the .Mexican transport
Oaxaca, now in that j'ort, is waiting
there for orders, in casesof war, to take
•n arms and ammunition* for the M«xi
can government to be landed at fttan
Benito, on tbe Guatemalan frontier.
And it was also hinted that Don JoaquAn
Redo of Mazatlan is in Son Diego for tb c
purpose of purchasing tbe well known
ateamer Manuel Dublan for the use of i
the Mexican government in case of war.
These incidents are but links in the
chain of warlike indications.
W. P. Temple, a native of this city, a
representative of one of tbe oldest estab
lished and most influential families of
Southern California, returned on Friday
lrom an extended trip through Mexico.
This gentleman, a highly educated and
intelligent observer, has noted the po
litical situation throughout tbe republio
with special reference to the impending
war.
It ia the opinion of Mr. Temple, ex
pressed yesterday in an interview with
■ representative of the Heuald, that
war will not come of the trouble be
tween the two repablics.
"It is only a question of the owner
ship of a strip of land something like
100 miles in width along the boundaries
of the two countries,'' he said, "and I
believe that the excellent judgment of
President Diaz will rind some way of
overcoming the difficulty short of blood
shad."
"President Diaz is a wonderful man,"
be continued. "They talk of a revolu
tion and the overthrow of the present
Republic of Mexico, but it will not be
while Diaz Uvea and rales, and in my
judgment it will never be. But Diaz is
now the rook on which tbe republic of
Mexico rests. Ke is pre-eminently a
peaceful man, clear in his judgment of
great national issues and unalterably
opposed to unnecessary conflict.
"It ia not the leading men of Mexico
who talk war with Guatemala, I found.
That is in tbe way of favoring such a
course, though it is an open secret there
that the government has recognized the
possibility of it before tbe present mis
understanding is set right. ludeed, in
a measure Mexico is the aggressor, for
that government makes the demand fc?
the territory in dispute, and Guatemala
simply disputes Mexico's right to it.
"American interests in Mexico are
unfavorable to war, and have a weight,
especially with the president. It is also
the American interests which would
preclude the possibility of an overthrow
of the republic after the death of Diaz."
Mr. Temple's trip was an interesting
one, and not devoid of incident. Leav
ing this oity on the Ist of June he went
to El Paso and then over the Mexican
Central to Agues Calientes and San
Luiß Potosi. From there he proceeded
to Gaanajuata, Guadalajara and tbe
City of Mexico, After a stay of three
weeks in tbe Mexican capital he re
turned by way of tbe Mexican National
through Qaltillo, Monterey and Loredo,
Texas. Thus Mr. Temple visted all the
principal points in tbe republic and met
many of tbe principal figures of Mexi
can life, with whom he was able to se
cure an introduction and by whom he j
was cordially received through his ]
high standing and learning. j
"The indnstrial condition of Mexico
is miserable," says he. "The property
is held in large areas by few people. In
the state of San Luis Potosi, for ex
ample, are 65,000 people, only 5000 of !
whom have a stated income. The re
maining 60,000 are peons, having no
employment, living in idleness and
squalor, without pride or hope, as miser
able and downtrodden a people as exist
on the face of the earth. The 60,000
people are the servant i and vaßsala of
6000.
"At Guanajuato I was most deeply
interested in the pantion or municipal
graveyard. Here is a plot of ground
comprising perhapc two acres of ground.
The whole is enclosed by a wall perhaps
16 feet in heighth and 20 feet in thick*
ness. Through tbe influence of a friend,
Senor M. Rocba of the City of Mexico,
I was permitted to see tbe inner work
ings of tbe Btrange burial customs of tbe
place, a privilege which few if any for
eigners have enjoyed before me.
"There are three distinct clasaea in
Mexico—the peons, tbe middle claea
and tbe rich. All three classes are
buried here, but in far dilTorent ways.
The rich buy a plot of ground on the
level inside and here in richly mounted
coffins they place their dead. The mid
dle classes rent a bole in tbe massive wall
and the peons do likewise if able to for
they have peculiar superstitions and
notions regarding the dead. They pay
from $2 to $5 per year for the burial
privilege, and the rude coffins are placed
in holes in the wall and the holes are
tben sealed np with mortar.
"In these holes the coffins rest in
penes just as long as tbe relatives or
friends or deceased can pay the yearly
rental—no longer. I wbb fortunate ia
beint; admitted to the strange gaveyard
juat at the timo an order came from the
politico to disinter a body. The rela
tives had failed to pay the yearly rental.
The nexton climbed up the wall. With
a crowbar lis jabbed away the mortar
from tho face of grave No. 285 and
brought forth tho coflin. Inside were
the remains of a woman, perfectly mum
mified. With rude hands he cut away
the clothing from the form, and then
bore it to tbe top of tbe wall, where it
war) to lie, face np to the sun, for three
days. Taken from the wall, when the
damp of tho grave is gone, the body is
placed in a niche in the catacombs, where
t will remain through endless years.
"The catacombs in the west Bide of
iho graveyard contain now nearly 40 j
nuimmioj in perfect preservation, and
iully half the space here is filled with
human bones, piled in one conglomer
ated .-.'jase—all that is left on earth of
bundrada and thousands of .human be
ings who have lived' and loved and died
in years gone by.
"The ground hero»posiesi%i some pe
culiar element, so that when the coffins,
mere wooden boxe i, are placed in those
walls of mud tbe bodies inside tbem in
many cases are m ammified as perfectly
as those of ancient Egypt.
"The city of Guanajuato is a progres
sive place in many ways, and has just
completed one of'the most magnificent
theaters in tbe republic at a cost of
nearly half a million dollars. American
Consul Furnesa has a large mining in
terest near by and conducts a mining
agency.
"I had occasion to visit, while there,
the large reservoir constructed by Ex-
President Gonsales, who was subse
quently governor of the state of Guana
juat a. Near this reservoir are fine min
ing properties controlled by Americans.
The Valenbiana mine and others are
verr valuable.
"At Silao I had'the good fortune to
meet: Sen or Rarnoti Alcszar and Sen or
Ybarb ongaate and through hit kindness
was permitted to enjoy life on a Mezi
hacienia, located some nine miles from
Silao and called Chicnemguilla. This
hacient a or race h ia in many respects
like tb » Santa Anita ranch in the San
Gabriel valley. It baa its ranch house,
surrounded by beautiful flower gardens
and law is slopiiig down to a mineatnre
lake wl, ere bountiful swans and rare
birds sport in tbe clear waters. Tbe
etables are near by but the great race
horses a re not there as at Santa Anita.
"Ramon Alcazar, owner of the ranch,
Ms one of the millionaires of Guanajuato
and also nan several haciendas in tbe
state of >fcchnac«.n
t "From Halao I went to Guadalajara,
| where tbei best farming land of Mexico
| it. Then.'on to Iraperatoand to Guada
lajara, tt « second oity in commercial
I importance in the republic of Mexico,
i Any American with capital and ambi
'•tiou can ;io well here. The natives do
'not look with so much favor on Ameri
cans as tb ey do on the French or Ger
. vans, even, because the foreigners are
i. '»ifonui«v more polite and have more

th c country, but tbe pushing American

". The laud in the elevated portions of
Mcx kjo is all held in large quantities
and Vifl not be Bold unless the intend
ing purchaser will take four or five
tboUB and acres.
"L> Sid in the state of Vera Cruz can
be bat lat moderate figures, say $4 or $5
per ac >», and the land companies ex
empt t t'e buyer from taxation for ten
years. The land is fitted for tbe culti
vation c tf coffee, sugar cane and tobaoco.
The aye rage elevation is about 25,000
feet, and I there are some seventy-five
America n colonies in tbe state already.
The onl r drawback is the inadequate
means of transportation for the products,
the neare *t outlets being to Tuianzingo
on tbe rai Iroad, 150 miles, and the port
of Tuxpar. i, seventy miles away.

'The City of Mexico ia a place of
350,000 inhabitants. 250,000 being peons

has some be a utiful buildings, princi
pally the Caaid eof Cbepultepec at the

A Contract Drawn Batwaan tha Old
Tree Calf K*d-l.lno Edition* and
Late Triumph* or Artlatle
Kxoellenoe.
Time was when tbe only gift books to
be found were red-lined editions of the
standard works bound in "tree calf,"
the smooth edges of the leaves carefully
cut and gilded and the book illustrated
with wood outs—not wood engravings,
but the old outs made from wooden
blooks with a breadth and heaviness of
line that was funereal in its blackness
and inadequate to express other than a
limited numbar of subjects: tbsrefore
sparse and generally unsatisfactory.
What a contrast, then, are the num
berleis exquisitely conceived and artis
tically executed editions of tbe present
day, when tbe art of binding and illus
trating has advanced until it has
reacbed something so nearly perfection
that tbe brain of ordinary mortals can
conceiv.e nothing finer nor better. And
it is not to recently written books that
this refinement of get-up is coulined,
but new editions of older books are as
elaborately and beautifully dressed; in
deed, the number and variety of them
is legion, and any taste, either for add
ing to one's own library or what may be
considered to be that of the friend for
whom the gift is intended, cau in grati
fied from the assortment to be found in
any store that pretends to carry tho
newest and beet grade of hooka in stock.
Tbe outside dress of vellum, parch*
3ien\ ooze-leather, cloth, silk or pon
gee-, all more or leaa elaborately
decorated in gold, silver, or
contrasting color, with numberless
designi artistic and appropriate to tho
subject matter dealt with in the letter
press; printed on heavy, handsome pa
per, either while or a delicate cream,
with wide mar gins and either rough
edges or uncut leaves, the cutting of
which is such a joy to the heart of the
true book lover, and illustrated with all
the wonderful uevicea of modern repro
ductive processes, in color ut well aB
black and white.
Photogravure from paintings and
sketches, photo-engraving, the photo
graph process of reproducing the dainti
est pen and ink or pencil drawings or
lithographing in color, Msny and mul
tifarious are the means whereby the
dainty, beautiful and, in most cases
masterly work of our modern illustra
tions is reproduced, and since the beat
artists in ail countries are now giving
part of their time and thought to illus
trating, it naturally follows that the
pictures in a book are by no means the
least attractive part of it.
Oliver Wendell Holmes' Laat Leaf is a
fine example of what it being done in
tbe line of illustrating, whereby the
subtle essence and spirit oi the author's
thought and conception have beeu caught
and presented to tne eve by George
Wharton Edwards and T. Hopkinsou
Smith in their dainty yet spirited draw
ings. Every line of importance, every
sentiment suggested, have received care
ful yet exquisite treatment from these
two clever men, and the little hook as a
whole is admirably dressed. The bind
ing is of Quaker gray cloth witb white
back : a branch of bay leaves across the
upper corner and au hour glass, all in
contrasting colors, are pressed in upon
the surface, and a single leaf and a Rickle
in gold complete the design. It is
printed only on one side of heavy cream
paper, and an author's note explaining
tbe history of the poem and tbe circum
stances under which it was written is
bound with it.
Another wonderful example in which
the spirit of the poem is caught and re
produced are Elibu Vadder'a illustra
tions of the Rubaiyat by Omar Kay
yam; a very expensive edition of tbia
work was published some years ago with
an Edition de Luxe, and is well known
by all cultivated people; a cheaper edi
tion was gotten out later, in which the
illustrations were photographed from
other cuts, and consequently were in
ferior; but this season is juat published
a $5 edition, in which tbe reproductions
are taken from the original drawings,
and they are superb, and yet financially
the book within the reach of many peo
ple.
Putnam Sons have issued tbia fall,
Washington Irving's Sketch Book, uni
form with the Alhambra of last year
and the Conquest of Granada of ths
year before; it is published in two vol
umes, bound in white glazed cloth with

pieces to tbe chapters in wash drawings
and both volumes are plentifully illus
trated with photographs, and photo
gravure reproductions of drawings by F.
O. C. Darley, Allan Barraud, Arthur
Rackban, and sketches by Julian Rix
and F. S. Church.
Longfellow's King Robert of Sicily
comes from the press of Raphael Tuck
& Sons, in a most elaborate get-up of
light brown cloth with heraldic design
in gold on the upper cover; it is printed
on heavy glazed paper and illustrated
by reproductions of Jane Willis Grey's
sketches and drawings in color and
brown ink; the pictures are rich with
kingly attire, chorister boys and swing
ing censers; and nuns' and monks' face
thrones and court jestor.

bound uniformly in white cloth with
light green and gold tracery ; the titles

with dainty sprays of flowers, and bits
of landscape by Corbyn Price and oth
ers; they are printed on one side only
of heavy fine paper.
From tbe Frederick A. Stokes com
pany come two rather strong little vol
nmes, Rings and Love Knots, by Sam
uel Minturn Peck, and Point Lace and
Diamonda by George A. Baker, jr., both
uniform and elaborately bound in lav
ender and pink brocaded moire, with a
gold griffin rampant in each corner, gilt
edges, and the latter illustrated with
wash drawings by Francis Day and oth
ers.
01 iter Wendell Holmes' Dorothy Q, a
Ballad of the Boston Tea-Party, and
Grandmother's Story of Bunker Hill
Battle, bound together in gray cloth
with cover appropriately decorated in
silver, aud profusely illustrated with
decorative borders to the text, and head

Train, bound in one volume with cover
of tan ooze-leather, decorated from de

preface by the author; the illustrations
in this volume are also by Howard
Pyle, which means they are appropriate
and artistic
A new edition of Lamb's Essays of
Elia is bound in brown cloth with red
lettering; and Robert Louis Stevenson's
Virginibus Puerisque, published in two
volumes in the dainty medallion edition,
uniform with Donald G. Mitchell's
Reveries of a Bachelor, etc., would
make a most attractive and readable
present.
Nathaniel Hawthorne's Our Old
Home, in two volumes, bound delight
fully in dull green Chinese silk with
gold medallions and a delicate gold
border on the upper cover, illustrated
with photogravures; George William
Curtis' Prue and I, also in doll green
