SOME IMPORTANT (Jl'KMTIOSf AN-
Our Correspondent Like the Country,
the Climat I Delightful .and
Livingston, Guatemala, June 28, '94
Editor Wwrr Bioic: Your favor
May 10th reached me, and I will try
aud answer your question. You
wanted to kuow how I liked thl coun-
try, whether the climate w neauny,
whether the Motion or land adjoining
lake Itubel ou the north was suitable
for colonisation purpi!, whether a
colony of Americans would be made
welcome, and laat to tell you an snout
Vnu have lven me a large tasK to
nerform. I am located here at Mving,
ton. Thl town I the oniy iree port
In th reoubllo. It doe a large buL
nos with th United State In fresh
fruit, principally bananas, seven
attain vtmiel. flitted soeolally for that
fruit, arrlvisg and departlug evry
week durlug the season. Oue gentle
men friend of mine, who has a planta
tion about 80 tulles up the river, near
lake Isabel. Informed me that he had
cleared $16,000 thl year ou hi crop and
hv bnvlng of the native. But I am
uot answering your question.
Ye. I like this country. This town
i hot and feverish, but I manage to
stand It. There are not tuauy Amer
ican here, and when they first oome
thsv are not aatlsfled. but like tome
very bad habit of people, when you
vet used to them you cannot break
them off. Lire Is all taken easy here.
There Is no auoh struggle for existence
a I teen lu the United Suites. In the
higher elevation Uie climate 1 delight
ful and the growing of coffee Is a profit
able busluea. Many persons oome
here fully Intending to go Into that
busluea, but find the opportunities ror
maklug money so much faster lu the
hotter localities that they uever go Into
tbe coffee business. In. many case
they make a mistake In doing so, but
every American Is just alike, impatient
to see the dollar come rolling lu, even
at the cost of discomfort ana baa
health. The plan of your colony won Id
be a good ons were it uot for that very
fact, that under the plau you propose,
you cannot bold your people together
tbluk your flmt plan, a on-operative
colony, belter. If you get, say, thirty
families to Jolu together hi tbe oollce
or other produce business for a term or
years, the aggregate result will be that
a imietM.ro us oomuiuulty will be built
up, with schools, ehurcnes, roaaa,
means or tranaportatlon, etc., and your
colouy will grow from a few to several
hundred, and those that first take bold
of the land will reap a handsome profit
from those coming later. The body of
land you have had reserved for you by
the government to very fertile, well
ailaoted for a colony and much closer
to a market than lands I kuow or set
line for Hv and ten dollar an acre. 1
would advise you to change the plan of
your colony and make It co-operative,
Let each person take one snare ror
every acre or laud, bind them to pay so
nnii-h ruonev each year, and lei ine
colony expend that money so that all
the colony geli the benefit. It Is the
only way you can keep your people to
gether and form a community or Am,
erlcaus. Your first plan will worn me
Americans are well-received by the
government, a tbey are Intelligent
wide-awake, and produce everyining
to sell and consequently add to tne
wealth or the country and to the rev
enue or the republic. 1 think the re
quirement that each colonist shall be
worth at least $1000 a good one, If It Is
Die liiLnutlon to go Into the ootlee bus
Living, as the native live, Is very
cheap. A native with bis little paicu
of cultivated ground will support his
family on $5.00 a month. A family of
Ave will earn $40.00 a month, leaving
$35.00 clear. They are a quiet, Inoften
sive people, lacking lo push and enter
prise, but willing to do such work
Is generally given them, and are satis
fled with- small wages. They know
nothing about striking for higher
wanes. An adult mau Is satisfied with
60 oeut a day, lu sliver, (26 cents In
Mid) and his wife and children less,
A colony from the Willamette valley
would be well-satisfied here, for our
rains are no novelty to them. It rains
here at certain hours or the day very
hard, but It Is warm and no one sutlers,
The rainy season la the most pleasant
Ona trot tired of six months all sun
The scenery about lake Isabel Is per
fectly grand, and whenever there are
convenience for tourists the mouutalns
to the north will be a popular resort,
I will do all I can to assist your colony
here, and If I have not given you a suf
ficiently full answer to your queetlom
write me again,
Do not misunderstand me In regard
to the plan of the colony; If you want
to have a colony of Americans, the
lust is too loose. If you simply want
to settle the country, oue family In one
part of the country and one in another,
it Is all right. You will find it lone
some, however, living out In the mouu
tains alone, and I think the co-opera
tive colony plan will meet with better
success. F. C. D.

Waitbhuko, June 26,-At high noon
Sunday at tbe Christian church a very
pretty wedding was solemnized, the
contracted parties being Miss Ella
Smith, or this city, and W. W. Max
well, or Walla Walla. Tbe bride was
lovely In a gowji of cream surah,
garnitured with lace and moire ribbon,
aud carried bridal rose. Mis Lena
Smith, sister or the bride, acted a maid
of honor, Mis Anna Jesaupand Mr.
Will Hawley, of Walla Walla, being at
tendants. Otto Smith, brother of the
bride, and Emerson Wheeler, acted as
ushen. A few minute before 12, Mis
Margaret Preston took her place at the
orgau and begau the wedding march
Promptly at 12 the bridal party arrived
and were met by tbe ushers, who escort
ed the party to the altar, where ltev
C. P. Smith, or Walla Walla, pro
nounced the words which made the
happy couple husband aud wife, Im
mediately the bridal party left the
church for the home of the bride's
parents, where a reception was given to
a few intimate friends.
Altogether it was the prettiest wed
ding ever solemnized lu Walteburg.
The church bad beeu beautifully
decorated by friends, there were
qualities of flow era everywhere, and, to
crown all, the sun, which had been
obscured all morning, burst forth in all
hi glory just as the bridal party reach
ed the church. Walla Walla Vmotu
The wisdom of our cltyoovncil In
saving the small grove at the end of
C street from being cut down, by buy,
lug the property, has been conceded by
most of ourcitlasens. Tbe grounds are
now nicely cleaned up aud there Is
large platform and good stand for pub
lic use, but the work should not cease
Something should be done to cover tbe
platform to protect It from tbe sun's
rays now and the winter ruin. Why
could uot our city band give a coucert
there, say every Saturday, and from
the profits of the stands, etc., accumu
late a fund for covering it If the roof
were built bo that 30x0 feet more floor
might be added It would make a fine
place for a bicycle school, skating rink
or a gymnasium for an athletic club
and tben a bathing tauk could be ad
ded. This matter should receive atten
tion now. No doubt arrangements
could be made with the city for the
use of the grounds for such a purpose,
