' are oroepeoti of a war between
Mexico and Guatemala, am), though tho
e»uEB °' the rupture which threatena
war ma/ aeem trivial to eold-bloorVod
people oi tbe nomtb, there is no tel'dng
what the ht. t blood of ;the ,swarthy peo
ple to tbe eoiuli maty lead tOem to when
international Aispnrtea arise. It takea
only two man, one with a i usty sword
and the other a breach-burnt gun, to
•tart a firstolaee revotlution .anywhere
aouth of the Tsjmb bordtor, and i n inter
national war can be provoked just about
aa easily down thai way*.
On Friday the lis* ai d published
startling rumors frotm San Diego, ex
clusively published tlwm, by the way,
to the offset that the .Mexican transport
Oaxaoa, now in that fort, is w rutin/
there for orders, in cas»Nof war, to take
on arms and ammunition for the Mexi
can government to be n led at titan
Benito, on the Guatemalan frontier.
And it waa also hinted ttiat l>.;n Joaqu.Nn
Redo of Mazallan is in San L'iego for th c
purpose oi purchasing the well known'
steamer Manuel Dublan for the use of
the Mexican government in case of war.
These incidents are but links in the
chain of warlike indications.
W. P. Temple, a native ol this city, a
representative of one of the oldest estab
lished and most influential families of
Southern California, returned on Friday
irom an extended trip through Mexico.
This gentleman, a highly educated and
intelligent observer, has noted the po
litical situation throughout the republic
with special reference to the impending
wax.
It ia tbe opinion of Mr. Temple, ex
preaaed yesterday in aa interview with
a repreasntative of the Hkbald, that
war will not come of tbe trouble be
tween the two republics.
"It is only a question of tho owner
ship oi a strip o( land something like
100 miles in width along the boundaries
of the two countries," be said, "and I
believe that the excellent judgment of
President Diaz will had some way of
overcoming tbe difficulty short of blood
abed."
"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 lives and rules, and in my
judgment it will never be. But Diaz is
now the rock on which the republic of
Mexico rests. He is pre-eminently a
peaceful man, clear in his judgment of
front national iseueß and unalterably
opposed to unnecessary conflict.
"It ia not tbe leading men of Mexico
who talk war with Guatemala, I iound.
That is in the way of favoring such a
course, though it is an open secret there
that tbe government has recognized tho
poseibilitr oi it before tbe present one -
understanding is set right. ludeed, in
a measure Mexico is tbe aggressor, for
that government rnuites the demand for
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 tbe possibility of an overthrow
of tbe republic after the death of Diaz."
Mr. Temple's trip was an interosting
one. and not devoid of incideut. Leav
ing tbis city on the Ist of June he went
to El Paso and then over the Mexican
Central to Aquas Calientes and Kan
Luis Potosi. From there he proceeded
to Guanajuata, Guadalajara aud the
City of Mexico. After a stay of three
weeks in the Mexican capital he re
turned by wav of the Mexican National
through Qaltillo, Monterey and Loredo,
Texas, lbua Mr. Temple visted all the
principal points in the republic and met
many of the principal figures of Mexi
can life, with whom he was able to se
cure an introduction and by whom he f
was cordially received through his
high standing and learning. |
"Tbe industrial condition of Mexico |
is miserable," says be. "The property
is held in large areas by few people. In
the etate of Han Luia Potosi, for ex
ample, are 65,000 people, only 5000 of
whom have a stated income. Tbe re- j
naaining 60,000 are peons, having no
employment, living in idleness and ,
sqnalor, without pride or hope, as miser- j
able and downtrodden a people as exist
on the face of the earth. Tbe 00,000 j
people are the servant ! and v»Beala of i
6000.
"At Guanajuato I wae most deeply (
interested in the pantion or municipal
graveyard. Here is a plot of ground j
comprising perhapc two acres of ground. !
The whole is enclosed by a wall perhaps
16 feet in heighth and 'JO feet in thick
ness. Through cbe inflnence of a friend,
Senor M. Rocha of the City of Mexico,
I was permitted to see tho inner work
ings of the strange burial customs of the
place, a privilege which few if any for
eigners have enjoyed before ma.
"There are three distinct olaasea in
Mexico —the peonH, tbe middle class
end tbe rich. All three classes are
buried hero, but in far different ways.
The rich buy a plot of ground on the I
level inside and hers in richly mounted ]
coffins they place their dead. The mid
dle classes rent a hole in the massive wail
and tbe peorni do likewise if able to for
they have peouliar superstitions and
notloni regarding the dead. They pay
Irom to $f> per year for tbe burial
privilege, and the rude coffins are placed
in holeß in tne wall and the boles are
then pealed np vrith mortar.
"In these holes the coffins rest in
penc a juel an long as the relatives or
friends or deceaseil can pay the yearly
rentnl -no longer. I was fortunate in
tieiiii; admitted to the strange gaveyard
j'ist at tie time an order came from the
politico to disinter a body. The rela
tives hail failed to pay tho yearly rental.
Tho "PXton climbed up the wall. W'itb
a crowbar lia jabbed away the mortar
from tho face oi grave No. 285 and
brought forth tho collin. inside were
Die rornaine of a wornau, perfectly mum
milled. With rude harms he cut away
the clothing from the form, aud then
bore it to the top of the wall, where it
was to lie, face up to the sun, for three
day?. Taken from the wall, when the
damp of tho grave ia gone, the body iH
pluced in a niche in the catacombs, where
t will remaiu thrown endless years.
"The catnoombH in the west side of
ihu graveyard contain now nearly 40 \
niummioa in perfect preservation, and j
fully half the space bete is ulled with
human bonus, piled in onu conglomer
ated all tbat ia left on earth of
hundreds and thousands of .human be
ings who have lived' and loved and died
in years gone by.
"The ground herovposaeß.%j come pe
culiar element, so tiiat when the coffins,
j mere wooden boxes, are placed in tbose
j walla of mud the bodies inside them in
' many casea are m ammified as perfectly
'] aa those of ancien.t . gypt.
I "The city of Guanajuato is a progres
sive viace in many ways, and bas just
completed one of'lbe most magnificent
theaters in the repuhlic at a cost of
nearly half a million dollars. American
Consul Furneaa has a large mining in
terest near by and conducts a mining
agency.
"I bad occasion to vfeit, while there,
the large reservoir constructed by Ex
j President Gonaalea, who wae subse
quently governor of the state of Guana-
I juata. Near this reservoir are fine min

A Contrast Drawn Between the Old
Tree Oalf Ited-I Ine F.dltluns and
Late Triumphs of Artistic
Kxoellenoo.
Time was when tbe only gift books to
be found were red-lined editions of the
standard works bound in "tree calf,"
1 the smooth edges of the leaves carefully
; cut and gilded and the book illustrated
I with wood cuts —not wood engravings,
j but the old cuts made from wooden
; blocks with a breadth and heaviness ol
: line that was funereal in its blaokneas
! and inadequate to expreea other than a
I limited numbar of subjects: thsrefore
sparse and generally unsatisfactory.
What a contrast, then, are the nutn
bsrleis exquisitely conceived and artis
• tioally executed editions of the present
; day, when tbe art of binding and illna
j trating has advanced until it has
; reached something so nearly parfectiou
[ tbat the brain of ordinary mortals can
I conceive nothing finer nor better. And
|it is not to recently written books tbat
; this refinement of get-up is coniiued,
I hut new editions of older hooku are as
! elaborately aud beautifully dreaeed; in
' deed, the number and variety of them
!is legion, and any taste, either for add
ing to one's own library or whst may ba
! considered to be tbat of the friend for
whom the gift is intended, can be grati
fied from the assortment to Da found in
, any store that pretends to cirry the
; newest and beet grade oi books in stock.

I Bubject matter dealt with in the lattsr

with wide margins and either rough)

whlob ia audi a joy to the heart of the
true book lover, und illustrated with all i

j black and white.
Photogravure from paintings and
! sketches, photo-engraving, the photo-
I graph process of reproducing the daintl
j eet pen and ink or pencil drawings or
■ lithographing in color. Many and mul
tifarious are the means wherehy the
dainty, beautiful and, in most cased
masterly work of our modern iiluatra
i tions is reproduced, and since the best
| 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' Last Leaf is a
tine example of what is bain;,; dove in
the line of illustrating, whereby the
subtle essence and spirit oi the author's
thought and conception have been cau.TU
and presented to tne eve by George
Wharton Edwards and T. Hopkioaon
Smith in their dainty yet spirited draw
ings. Every lice of importance, every
sentiment suggested, have received care
ful yet exquisite treatmont from theso
two clever men, and the little hook as a
whole ia admirably drosstd. The bind
iug 18 of gray cloth with white
back : a branch of bay leaves across tbe
upper corner and au hour glass, all in
contrasting colors, are preaaed in upon
the eurface, and a single leaf and a sickle
in gold complete the design. It is 1
printed only on one side of heavy cream
paper, and an author's note explaining
the history of the poem and the circum
stances under which it was written ia
bound with it.
Another wonderful example in which
the spirit of the poem ia caught and re
produced are Elihu Vedder'a illustra
tions of the Hubaiyat by Omar Kay
yam; a very expensive edition of thia
work waa published some years ago with
an Edition de Luxe, and is weli known
by all cultivated people; a cheaper edi
tion wae gotten out later, in which the
i.lustrations were photographed from
other cuta, and consequently were in
ferior; but this season is just published
a $5 edition, in which the reproductions j
| are taken from the original drawings,
j and they are superb, and yet financially
I tbe book within the reach of many peo
; pis.

Ella is bound in brown cloth with red
lettering; and Robert Louis Stevenson's
Virginibua l'uerieque, published in two
volumes in the dainty medallion edition,
uniform with Donald Q. Mitcbell's
