UNHAPPY NICARAGUA IS
MENACED BY WEYLERISM
WASHINGTON, July 20.—A repeti
tion of the Weyler reconcentrado sys
tem in Cuba, that caused widespread
criticism just before the opening of
the war with Spain, has been inau
gurated in Nicaragua by the govern
ment authorities, according to advices
to the state department today. Prob
ably 5000 people in the vicinity of the
city of Granada are ordered to con
centrate at Uranada under an order is
sued by Sebastian Salinas, the polit
ical chief and commandant of the
forces of the department of Granada,
Nicaragua. .
This order, published in the Com
mercio, a Managua newspaper, and
transmitted to the state department
here, reads as follows, translated:
1. "Within twenty-four hours
from the present moment al! the
inhabitants of the Mombaeho Ridge
shall assemble at Granada, without
distinction of sex or ago.
2. Persons not complying with
this regulation shall be treated as
revolutionists and dealt with as
such.
According to the view here, this
order would give the Granada military
regime sufficient pretext to go up into
the Mombaeho RHlge, where a recent
spontaneous revolt was put down, and
shoot or kill any one who refused to
obey the concentration edict.
It Is regarded here as obvious that
the Madriz government la spending
money to control certain Central
American newspapers. This belief was
expressed today by officials.
The United Slates delegation to the
Pan-American conference at Buenos
Ayres, Argentine Republic, was due to
arrive at Its destination today, and
contemporaneously a newspaper
reached here containing a threat of a
Latin-American coalition to counter
balance this government's influence at
the coming conference. The editorial
was In a Managua paper and was
quoted from the Informaca of San
Jose, Costa Rica.
So far the state department has re
ceived no official indication of any such
movement, according to statements to
day, but expressions have been re
ceived at the department through the
Venezuelan legation here as well as
the American legation at Caracas In
dicating official concern and annoyance
over remarks adverse to this govern
ment's attitude attributed to the Ven
ezuelan delegation to the conference.
The official view here is that there
would be no justification for airing the
United States-Nicaragua case in the
coming conference, any more than
there would be in threshing over tha
Peru-Ecuador boundary dispute.

BACK TO THE FARM IS
BECOMING A REALITY
Chief Powderly Notes Increasing
Tendency of Immigrants
WASHINGTON, July 20.—Terence V.
Powderly, chief of the division of in
formation of the department of com
merce and labor, says:
"There is now a let up in the de
mand for men for work on the rail
roads, on construction and the like,
but the demand for farm labor is on
the increase.
"When we began this bureau two
and a half years ago," said Mr. Pow
derly, "wo heard a great deal of the
en', 'Back to the farm!' But most of
the men who were talking about going
back to the farm did not go. They
had never been on the farm, in the
first place.
"Today a change has taken place.
I returned last night from Now York.
Mr. Green, who is in charge of the
station there, says the interest of
aliens and of immigrants already in
this country in farm work is increas
ing. Men on construction work and
other work in the city are registering
in the hope of being sent to the farms.
"Immigration is brought about
largely by the fact that people here
write home to their friends and advise
them to come. In the past letters
sent to Europe have been from men
working in the mines or from men In
the crUea. But the division of Infor
mation has boon sending aliens to tlif
farms in large numbers in the last
two yours and a half."
No fewer than 8000 persons have boon
sent to-permanent positions on farms.
Of these only twenty have failed to
stay. Those who have gone to the
farms havo been writing to their
friends abroad or to their friend! em
ployed in the cities, and the result is
a gradually growing tendency to go to
the land. The demand for farm work
comes from all over the country.
