The railroad company has in
duced a few pumpers to go back
to work to furnish water for the
«
locomotives
The pumper here is at work
With two men guarding him and
pumping plant day and night.
No trouble has occurred,
and is not likely to happen here.
It is reputed that the tank at
Spadra was emptied a few min
utes after it was filled
Almost every train takes water
at this tank, which indicates
that the company has failed to
induce many men to go back to

South America Stands
By United States.
That the vast sums spent by
Germany to influence public sen
timent in South America has
failed in its purpose is clearly
shown by the present attitude of
those countries toward the
United States.
“The action of Nicaragua and
Honduras in severing relations
with Germany may be lightly
dismissed by some on the ground
that the assistance of the small
Central American Republics is
not likely to be of much effect
one way or the other in the war
But their action is, in fact, a
fresh and remarkable evidence
of the way in which the entry
or the United States into the war
has stimulated a Pan-American
movement which Germany will
certainly have special cause to
and which will permanently
affect the politics of the New
World. The array of Republics
which in one form or another
have now avowed their support of
the United States is imposing
Cuba has declared war on Germ
any; Panama has undertaken to
lend aid in defending the Canal;
Costa Kica, Guatemala, anu
Uruguay have placed their coasts
and ports at the disposal of the
United States; Bolivia has broken
with Germany and Brazil has de
clared war with Germany and
her strong fleet is helping patrol
the Atlantic and the 150,000 tons
of German ships sR-zed in the
harbor will be used to carry food
to tlie allies. Argentina has only
neen prevented from a diplomat
ic rupture by a quite unexpected
German surrender on the special
point in dispute; other Republics
have formally proclaimed then
approval of the action and moti
ves of the United States.”
The growing friendship be
tween the nations of America is
especially gratifying to the peo
ple of the United States, and is
of great importance just now in
the prosecution of the war
MAY DISCONTINUE
RURAL ROUTE
There is a rumor to the effect
that with the view of curtailment
of expenses, postal inspectors
will go through the country dur
ing the next few months examin
ing all rural route roads, routes to
be discontinued where the roads
indicate continued neglect. Thus
one earless road overseer in one
road district may be responsible
for the loss of a route.
Promises and Pie Crust.
The leading newspaper of Ar
gentina. the Buenos Aires Pren
sa, tell us that—
"The German Minister un
nounces that, at the first oppor
tunity. a German squadron will
salute the Argentine flag as a
mark of respect,the Government
having demanded a public cer
mony of reparation both here
and in Germany.”
La Prensa should get a list of
Germany’s broken promises and
"mere scraps of paper.”
