Frederick Wanl, who has resided lu
Portlaud for the peat twelve yeare, ba
joat returned from a sojourn In Guate
mala. Ue traveled exiciialvely tbrougti
the reirubllo, made a careful examina
tion of tlie resources of the couoiry and
obtalneM aeveral land concvealooa from
thoUoveruiuent. He believe tltat 100U

the two countrlm.
"I spent four mouths in Invewtlga
tlug tiie ooltVe buioas," said Mr Ward.
"All the Uuea owners are growing rich
aud the coffee crop this year will be un
uaually large. Tbe Hvrrem Brut ben
-lone shipped &!,0n0 quIntaUof coir.t
Inst year, which brought litem lu about
1,000,000. It to a well known fact that
tbe beat grade of the Guatemala ooffet
la scut abroad, and only the third and
fourth grade shipped to San Francisco.
Tbe reasou for this hi that the Euro
pean merchant usually buy up the en
tire coffee crop lu advance.
The coffee crop la Guatemala' prin
cipal Industry. Au idea of the profits
lu It culture may be gathered from tbe
fact thattbe coat of raining, picking and
marketing la .from 6 to 9 cent per
pound, while the selling price Is quoted
at from 281032 cents. Cocoa la even
a more profitable product. It require
a longer lime to eome Into bearing,
however, and consequently but little
baa been grown hitherto. A email
crop of cocoa Is obtained at the end of
tho fifth year, but a gootryield is not to
be had until Ihe end of the seventh tea-
i "Coffee give the grower a net return
of from f 100 to $300 per acre and cocoa
about $000, aud often more.
Next tutlieaetwo product ludia rub
ber, of which very Uulo haa yet been
exported, la attracting much atteution.
It la equally as profitable, but la growu
ou Ihe lower land. Auother of the
more valuable luduatrle of which little
haa beeu suld, Is logwood, or "dyewood"
a It la.aometlme culled. It pays well
and require but small capital, although
it affords quick returns.
'I obtained an exteuslve logwood
osonoemlon from the Guutamallau Gov
ernment aud lutend to give It my per
gonal attention. Mexico has been
working up the logwood Industry In
that country for a number of years, but
the supply I about exhausted. Over
eighty ships have been loading anuu
ally from Mexican ports with logwood,
aud the demand for the product Is In
creasing every year. Orange, lemon,
rig and banana culture, dairying and
vegetable growing are all carried on
profitably lu Guatemala, which is liter
ally a laud overflowing with milk and
' "I was told before going to Guatemala
that I could not get 10,000 am lu oue
body, and that wild coffee lauds coat
$877 an aere and sometime $1000 per
acre. At a matter of fa -t, any Amerl
can can get all the land he wanU for a
trifle over $1 per acre. I was offered
about 150,000 acres of good ooflee lands

oured for about $3 per acre The Guai

' If there were more Americana lu
Guatemala more products would be
shipped to the Uulted States, and all
the household Kiipplles, manufactured
goods and machinery would be pur
chased by central America In our
market. All our ooftoe, rice, chocolate
and India rubber ought to come from
Central America, where those products

banana, pineapple, grandilla, acqua
tea, and down of ether unknown to
commerce, should eon to ua direct
from Llvlngst n. They tra obtained
n Guatemala of better quality aud lo
better order than in tba West Indie.
"There little accurate knowledge of
Guatemala outside of Central America.
Much It said in the United Htatea and
In Europe about the Instability of tho
governments aud the Insecurity of af
fairs lu the Hpaulsh-Aiuerican Repub
lic. This i an erroneous Idea, so far
a Guatemala I concerned. It I wisely,
governed May. It financial condition
It proaperou andlhetiate of civiliza
tion at which it baa arrived place It
beyond any retrogression,
"All tbe countrie of Central America
are represented beaide a extremely
inaalubrous. This 1 wholly a niUtake.
Guatemala la neither Panama nor tbe
Mosquito Cuaat.. for from It. The ell
mute Is perfeotly, healthful aud temper
de rather than hot. In some place
mow full. Guatemala I a rich oouu
try with a grand future. Hertxteualv
md fertile toil may well give shelter to
10,000,000 inhabitant Instead of 1,600,
iMO, compromising tbe present popula
tion. "What the country needs now la arm
to perform agricultural labor and cap
ital to foment aud exploit the greatest,
enterprise which can be established
lo this republic. The credi t of the na
tion well sustained by tbe present
Uovernuivnt, ut proved by the exact
itude with which it eaucel and pays
tbe Interest of the Internal and exter
nal debt. This cause a higher quota
tion for its bonds In the foreign ex
change every month.
"The people of Guatemala have to-day
more coufi deuce than ever in the liberal
aud progressiva tendencies of tho ad
ministration presided over by General
Barrio. Thla I proved by the niauy
offers of money, made by capitalist
within the republic, to. the Government
in spite of the depredation in ulver.
Yea, I bav noticed the dlspatche dur
ing tbe last day are two stating that
President Barrio has declared himself
dictator. This 1 the best form of gov
ernment adopted for Central America,
as only a small part of the population
la capable of conducting the affaire of
the Government, While General Bar
rlour la President there is no fear of
war or revolution. He I well liked
and hat given Guatemala a wise admin
istration. They take li(e very easy down there
and do not worry over business a we
do. They don't care whether school
keeps or not, although they have a com
pulsory school system, I mean to ay
lhat.lt la pleauaure before bualuees with
them. Is not the country backward?
Of course It Is, in many ways. But do
you know they enjoy life at It I better
tliauwo? They have all they want,
eveu at the lowest. The people are
rich aud so 1 the land. All are ap
parently happy and contented. "Mae
tleuipa que vida," they often say more
