Washington Dec 10 Everybody
ems to be asking in view of present
developments what exactly Is Nica
ragua how large ie it what are Its re
sources commerce and climate Some
Interesting comparisons and facts pre
I pared by the International Bureau of
I American Republics will help to an
swer these pertinent natural questions
j There is only four square miles differ
ence between the area of Nlcraua
i and the state of Nw York Take Con
I necticut out of New England und
Nicaragua would cover the rest if n
It la 1 apptoxlrlately halt the sine of th
state Washington To be exact it I
I covers 49200 square miles which is
I larger than Holland Belgium and Den
mark combined It has a remarkable
I extent of coast 1ne on two oceans On
the Carrlbean it reaches nearly 300
miles due north and south on the Pa
cific it extends I 226 miles Its greatest
width is 276 miles or approximately the
distance from Washington to New
York Its least width is 125 miles 01
approximately the distance from Chi
cago to the Mississippi river
It has the smallest population of any
Central American country but is cor
respondingly capable of great material
development There are only about 860 <
000 people within its limits Of these
esixtha are upon the western or Pa
cific side The eastern or Caribbean
shore lies low and is drained by many
rivers The only industry of this sec
tion is the growing of bananas which
were shipped in IMS to the number of
1500000 bunches valued at 50 I cents a
bunch The principal town here is
Blueflelds a little south of the center
having 5000 inhabitants It is L1S
miles from New Orleans and 310 miles
from Colon The only other important
places on this east coast are Grey town
at the southern point with 2000 In
habitants near the mouth of the San
Juan river which was to have been the
course of the isthmian canal if built
through Nicaragua and Cape Gracias
a Dios at the northern point with
only 1500 people On the populated Pa
cific slope the chief cities are Leon tne
historic apd interesting old capital with
60000 Inhabitants Managua the pres
ent capital with 40000 Matagalpa
with 14000 Granada with 12000 and
several other towns of from 5000 to
10000 The principal port on the Pa
cific side is ConnIe near thenorthern
end with only about 3000 people At
the southern end is the harbor of San
Juan del Sur
There is one railroad In Nicaragua
which starts at Corinto and runs to
Managua and then across to Granada
on Lake Nicaragua which is the lar
gest Inland body of water in all Latin
America If one wishes to go to Nica
ragua he can take steamers on the At
lantic side from New York New Or
leans er Mobile Going by Pacific he
will take steamers from San Francisco
or from coast points of other countries
Perhaps the quickest way to reach it
today is either through Mexico by rail
and by steamer from SaUna Cruz to
Corinto or by steamer from New Or
leans direct to Blueflelds The latter
Journey generally takes about four
days If however one lands on the east
coast it is practically impossible to go
to the west coast on account of the
lack of railroads and other facilities A
common way to go to the west coast is
via Panama and the Pacific side
The total value of the foreign trade
of Nicaragua in 1906 Amounted to 7
500000 of which exports were 4500000
and imports 3000000 Nicaragua
bought from the United States textiles
clothing machinery etc valued at
1100000 She sold to the United States
bananas coffee rubber mahogany
cattle hides etc valued at 1050000
Nicaragua has a president cabinet
with nve ministers or secretaries thir
teen departments or states and five di
visions like our territories Its national
assembly consists of only one chamber
which is now in session
Lying between 10 degrees 45 minutes
and 14 degrees 55 minutes north lati
tude and between 83 degrees 11 min
utes and 87 degrees 40 minutes west
longitude it is located all within the
tropic but it has a considerable varie
ty of climate Although the east coast
is low lying and very warm the central
and western sections are in parts so
mountainous and elevated that the
temperature never reaches a high point
and the climate can be considered salu
brious The western section In which
the greater part of the population is
located has such a varying latitude
and the country is so broken with lakes
and so close to the sea that it is not by
any means as hot as it would appear to
be on the map

Georgia and Nebraska Came To

Washington Dec lOThe battleships
Georgia and Nebraska collided yester
day afternoon while engaged in tactical
exercises off the Virginia capes The ef
fects were not serious and the two ships
were able to return to Hampton Roads
today with the entire fleet Rivets in
the two vessls were strained
Commander A H Davis was in
charge of the Georgia Captain Potts
the recent commander of the battleship
having been relieves and his successor
not appointed Commander Davis is
the executive office of the Georgia
Rear Admiral Comly in command of
the third division of the fleet also was
on the Georgia The Nebraska was
commanded by Captain John E New
Further than describing the effects of
the collision as slight the navy depart
ment had no detailed information to
givdout in regard to the damage suf
fered by the vessels It was learned
however that the collision was severe
enough to strain rivets of the armored
sides of the vessels A court of inquiry
probably will be called by Rear Admiral
Schroeder to ascertain the responsibili

Iowa Senator Proposes Some
Radical Changes in Inter
state Commerce Act
Washington Dec 10A controversy
over railroad legislation will be precipi
tated in congress this winter which in
Importance promises to surpass the leg
islative conflict over railroad rates four
years ago
The first gun was fired today by Sen
ator Cummins of Iowa when he Intro
duced a bill proposing radical changes In
the interstate commerce act In a large
sense the Cummins measure Is a substi
tute for the present Interstate commerce
act It Is expected that the measure pro
posing amendments to the law will be
introduced early in January by Senator
Elkins which will differ from the Cum
mins bill in many important details
In brief the Cummins bill requires the
interstate commerce commission to pro
mulgate a uniform classification of
freight and to prepare a plan for the
statement of freight rates which shall
hereafter be made in a uniform way The
carriers are required to adopt this classi
The commission is authorized to consid
er rates on its own motion with a view to
determining their reasonableness and is
empowered to fix maximum and minimum
In any action Instituted in court to set
aside an order of the commission respect
ing rates the courts are prevented from
Inquiring Into the reasonableness or suf
ficiency of any rate fixed by the commis
The bill provides that changes in rates
shall not become effective until they are
approved by the commission It prohib
its the acquisition or control by any
common carrier of any parallel compet
ing lines or from acquiring the capital
stock or bonds of any other carrier that
is a competitor
By the terms of the bill a carrier Is
prohibited from issuing any capital stock
without payment at par either In money I
or in property and in effect the com
mission shall have supervision of the Is I
sues of stocks and bonds by any carrier
Specific directions are given for the dis
position of the proceeds of any sale of
bonds After January 1 im no carrier
doing interstate business shall be permit
ted to engage in any other business than
that of a common carrier
