ZElAYA AlMOST AT
END OF HIS CAREER
Seized the Reins of Govern
ment After Putting Down
a Revolution
SAID TO BE VERY WEALTHY
ALL INDUSTRIES OF NICARAGUA
COMPELLED TO PAY TOLL
Washington Dec GTho Internal and
international quarrels in which the Ze
laya government of Nicaragua Is now in
volved have brought forcibly to the at
tention of this and other governments the
arrogant ruler of that turbulent Central
American republic Scuba Zelaya
who for nearly a score of years has been
one of the most troublesome figures hi
international affairs
That the latest difficulty In l which he
has become involved through the execu
tion of Qroce and Cannon citizens of the
United States will remit in his final
elimination from the field of politics Is
now generally believed by diplomats here
In Washington
The long list of insults to which vari
ous nations have been subjected by this
troublesome executive and which culmi
nated In the killing of Leonard Groce
and Leroy Cannon American residents of
Nicaragua will undoubtedly be avenged
by Uncle Sam While a substantial in
demnity undoubtedly will be demanded
for their deaths the intervention of this
nation is expected to result In the success
of the present revolutionary movement
under General Juan Estfada This would
mean Zelayas deposition as president and
undoubtedly his exile from Nicaragua
For nearly a score of years this auto
crat has ruled Nicaragua with an iron
hand substituting military force where
moral suasion proved Ineffective and
sowing the seed of discord among the
other Central American states which
would ultimately be harvested to hla ad
vantage
Compelled to Pay Toll
All industries whether native or foreign
have been compelled to pay toll to this
avaricious ruler who supports his vari
ous military movements with the pro
ceeds The most profitable of these such
as sugar tobacco and coffee are con
trolled by himself or his representatives
and the vast returns have made him Im
mensely wealthy I
One source of revenue however he has
been unable to get control of namely the
vast mineral wealth on the eastern coast
Yankee ingenuity has developed this sec
tion and despite the heartbreaking tariff
and various other Zelayan schemes the
Americans have managed to retain their
hold
Zelaya has blamed the Americans for
the many revolutions stirred up against
him and when the recent and most seri
ous uprising broke out In the Blueflelds
district it did not serve to increase his
affection This has been the basis for the
report that the execution of Groce and
Cannon was purely a matter of personal
revenge on the part of the Nicaraguan
executive
Zelaya Is a man with a purpose and
for many years even before his advent
to the presidency has had in mind the
unlcn of the Central American states
with himself at their head
Born of wealthy parents very little is
known of his early life except that he
was of unmixed blood The date of
his birth is fixed between 1S4S and 1830
According to the best information ob
tainable his early days were spent in the
dirty little city of Managua the capital
of Nicaragua where with his Indolent
companions he passed his time in gam
bling and cock fighting
Began Career In Army
As military service Is compulsory
young Zelava entered the army at an
early age This marked the beginning of
his career The energetic qualities of his
character which had Jong lain dormant
now asserted themselves
The enormous power of UN army in the
affairs of the state formed a biased path
for hit stormy career He quickly recog
fined the vast undeveloped mineral and
agricultural wealth of the Central Amer
ican states and the deterrent effect the
revolutionary character of the inhabitants
had on the country future Iii pro
phetic eye easily discerned the vast rev
enues that would ensue when the five
states were formed Into one harmonious
nation
But he was also keen enough to appre
ciate his deficiencies He knew he must
possess a thorough knowledge of tate
and military affairs In order to realise
this dream of an empire
So with this end in view he left his na
tive country and spent ten years in trav
eling In Europe and the United States
where he studied the various forms of
government and military training
Fully equipped for his new enterprise
be returned to Nicaragua where his su
nerlor knowledge of military tactics won
him a place at the bead of the army
Then he waited for his opportunity This
came in 1813 when after he had sup
pressed a revolutionary movement be
made himself president The dramatic
details of this event furnish a good Illu
tration of Zalayai character
Seized the Drcsidcncy
President Sarcasa who was then in of
fice and the members of his cabinet were
seated in the council room of the capitol
at Managua to welcome the victorious
general
When Zelaya surrounded by his offi
cers strode majestically into the room
the president began lila little speech of
thanks praising the conqueror for his
great victory But the expression In the
piercing gray eyes of the stalwart soldier
caused the words to die in his throat
Then drawing a revolver from his belt
Zelaya advanced to the table while all
present with the exception of his escort
turned pale
The revolution Is dead he said
Long live the revolution 1 am now the
revolution Do you think I won the vic
tory for you No t
My army holds the town and the coun
try The soldiers are devoted to me It
is useless for you to protest or resist
Today you must all leave the city un
tier escort for the coast and you will
depart to the United State of Europe by
the first steamer If you refuse you
will be shot
They went
Zelaya had now achieved the first step
of his ambition With a well equipped
army ho quickly silenced all opposition
for aa he was wont to say Opposition is
anarchy and anarchy must be sup
pressed
British Consul Failed
Soon after he assumed control he is
sued a proclamation Incorporating the
Mosquito coast which lies on the Atlantic
side under the protest from the British
consul who was clapped into Jail because
of lila persistency England immediately
Jumped In and brought Zelaya to his
senses by forcing him to pay an Indem
nity of 175000
In 1894 he drafted a new constitution
but from a Zelayan point of view there
was a serious defect in it which provided
that a president could not succeed him
self He had this remedied by an amend
ment In 1886
In the meantime he had begun his ac
tive campaign against Honduras The
settlement of this was not satisfactory
and was quickly followed byanotlier His
campaigns became ao frequent that the
Nicaraguan army was spending the great
er part of its time marching across the
state line On the slightest pretext old
troubles were revived and when there
was nothing else to fIght about Zelaya
would select the boundary line an an ex
cuse this being a never Trailing source of
dispute since the states were first
formed
Finally with the aid of the United
States and Mexico a Central American
pee > je conference was held In Washing
ton In MW and each republic signed a
guarantee not to Interfere with the gov
ernment of the other and agreed to rf > f
an to a court of arbitration at Costa Rica
Under the watchful eye of this country
and Mexico this agreement has been
fairly well carried out although Zelaya
has been charged several limes with try
Ing to destroy the Costa Rican court
Zelayas Diplomacy
His military efforts curbed by this
agrpRmpnt Zelaya began exercising di
oman and in August 1S98 he Induced
Honduras and Salvador to join a federa
t
tion known as the United States of Cen
tral America It soon became evident
however that Zelaya wanted to be the
president of the new republic and gov
ern it as autocratically as he had his
own The two states immediately pro
tested and the federation was dissolved
in November of the same year
But the international entanglements of
Nicaragua were not the only questions
with which this ingenious ruler had to
dealHis
His enemies were numerous and when
the quadrennial election periods came
round he had to see to it that they were
carefully removed He developed a sys
tem of espionage which rivals that of
Russia and thousands of citizens whose
only crime was their opposition to the ad
ministration were forced into exile and
their estates forfeited Others were
clapped Into jail until the election was
over while some of the more dangerous
element were placed against a stone wall
as targets for a file of soldiers
On one of the elections a unique
scheme was devised by this clever poli
tician to deceive the ignorant provincials
and Insure his election It consisted in
the printing of three names on the bal
lots Jose Santos and Zelayaall can
didates for the presidency The result
showed the election of all three or in
other words Jose Santos Zelaya was
unanimously reelected
By such methods Zelaya has managed
to be thrice reelected In spite of ala
enemies
Many attempts have been made to as
sassinate him and in 1902 his palace at
Managua was blown up and 150 soldiers
killed but the wily executive escaped un
harmed His undisputed bravery and
many miraculous escapes from death have
led the more superstitious of his enemies
to believe that he is In league with the
devil
Conspirators Surprised
In one instance he learned of a plot
that was being organised against him in
which several of his officers were in
volved Through his spies he discovered
their meeting place and determined to sui
prlse them
The conspirators were gathered around
a table discussing the details of the plot
when there came a knock at the door
When the summons was answered the of
ficer were dumfounded to see the presi
dent standing In the doorway
Good evening gentlemen he said ad
vancing toward the table I heard you
had a party here this evening and
thought I would look In and share the
fun Quite a distinguished gathering of
my officers You all seem to be ner
vous Discussing military matters 1 sup
pose
He took his seat with the party and
chatted affabl for about a halfhour
while the conspirators stirred uneasily in
their seats
Finally filling his glass with wine be
raised It and said I will give you a
toast Heres long life to the President
of Nicaragua and confusion to traitors
He then dashed his glass against a win
dow a squad of soldiers entered and
placed the conspirators under arrest
When they were brought up for trial
however he was unusually lenient with
them Some were imprisoned for long
terms while others were deported
Thus for nearly twenty years this
strange mixture of courage avarice and
illimitable ambition has been In supreme
power in the hotbed of revolution Al
though he baa installed modern methods
of transportation lighting heating etc
all improvements have been made with a
view to Increasing his revenue and filling
his coffers
His courage and purpose won for him
the title of the Napoleon of Central Amer
ica when he first ce into power but
his impolitic methods and insatiable ava
rice have changed this to the Castro of
Nicaragua
Present indications are however that
he has reached the end of his rope and
his fate will probably be the same as that
of he Venezuelan tyrant The present
revolutionary movement is by far the
strongest that has ever been organized
against him and the late news dispatches
report that thousands of Nicaraguan ex
iles are returning to their native land
and enlisting under the standards of
General Juan Estiada the revolutionary
leader
WHITE SlAVE AGITATION
Movement for Suppression of the Vile
Traffic Given Enoouragement by
the President
Washington Dec Suppression of
the white slave traffic will become
the slogan of an Increasingly powerful
movement to which President Taft has
given much encouragement in his com
ments to those who have consulted
with him on the subject
This fact gives new importance to
the reintroduction by Representative
Mann of Illinois of his bill prescribing
drastic penalties for those convicted of
these practices
The bill would make it a crime for
any person to aid entice or force any
girl or woman to go from one state
to another for immoral purposes
whether with or without her consent
with a penalty of five years imprison
ment or a fine of 5000 If the girl be
under 18 years of age the penalty pro
vided II ten years imprisonment and
10000 fine
The bill also reeks to carry out the
arrangement with foreign nations
known as the white slave traffic
agreement under which keepers of
immoral resorts are required to make
complete reports to the commissioner
general of immigration That official
is required to collect information con
cerning alien women of this class
