People of Middle America Will
Profit by U. S. Intervention
WashlliKton, D. C, Jnlv 2'-. The
probable boneflceal saTeW - i the Pan-
am Canal on the cniiiitiies of tin Ca
ribbean is told by Win. J. Show alter
in a communication to the Natloaal
Qeograpalc Boeiety, at IPaahwgioa, .
('. He dSSCrlbSS th wonderful ban
es that have been wrought in Port
Rtoo and Cuba Mace the advent at the
Foiled Slutc.-i government in tim e island..-.
"It would require six KalvadorS to
make one Honduras, ami vet Salvador
has three times s much population
ami three time.- as BtUCg foreign com
merce as Honduras," he sa.vs. "Costa
Me Is less (ban half as bin as N'ieara
gUa, and yet it has three limey as
much foreign commerce as NiiaraKua.
Ami yot, when Salvador and Coat
Rlcs are compared with Porto Kim,
I hey in turn seem tn be SlO in their
development. Porto Rica Is so small
that seven islands like ii would be
required to covei an ares equal to thai
of Costa Klca. vet It BBS a foreign
trade live times as gTOBl as that of the
Bans as Bmplre, Porto Rico is less
than half as lai-e as Salvadnr, yet il
has a foreign trade seven times as
Porto Rico's Trade Increasing.
"Utile PortO Rica Is so small that
it could he buried in a single Central
American lake; it would take 57 Is
lands of Us size t ual Centra Am-
tHCS in niea. Bad yet Potto Rico pro
duces mote foreign trade than all Cen
tral America together, The raOBf
BOCaUB Porta RICO has an Ideal gov ernment.
The trade of th island has
near!) Quintupled since Uncle Bug
took possession there. The number of
children enrolled In the School has Ut
eraaaad sixfold. The wages of the M
boring ckus has multiplied threefold.
Porto Rico's prosperity is seen in the
sugar Held:', where four tons of sugar
are produced wln-re mie was a dozen
years iiko, ami where the Portti Kuan
people receive ))i for exported simar
Where they received $1 only a dOBCB
years before. Coffee production has
quadrupled since the beginning nf the
century, The production nf oranges
has Increased sevenfold in ten wars,
pineapples twenty-fold in four ears
ami grapefruit tweaty-ttve-fohj in
Prospers Through Government.
Similar comparisons are mad be
tween Cuba and the six republics With
an ana oiie-tifth as great, its foreign
'nn roe is three times that nf the
six. "ne mi; lit Km on With these
comparisons Indefinitely, the lesson of
them all being that prosperity caaaot
exist where good I'nVeriunelit does
not," continues the writer,
"With vast iteposits nf minerals, un
told thousands of acres nf the tines!

condition as Honduras.
Profit by Cuba's Experience.
"it is aot unreasonable to aaaume
that if the people of Middle America
can se tire fair end proper government

Panama ('anal, they iaii do what Cuba

Boll of J7, (MHUHiii a year to a surplus
