Nicaragua will Make England
an Offer of Settlement
Which Includes Representatives
From the United States to Settle
Excess Demands of England.
Assoc' Ated Press. . . . ' '. . .'
Managua, Nicaragua, Ajrll 29. A
proposition of compromise and imme
diate evacuation of Cor!n'.o by th) Brit
lah,' Is now under consideration be
tween Washington, London and the
authorities here.' -The proposition em
braces as the esaentlal points:
1 Nicaragua IB to pay 177,600 at Lon
don within two weeks. '
2 The British forces are to Immedi
ately withdraw from Corlnto without
waiting for the two weeks to elapse.
S A mixed commission of arbitra
tion is to pass on the 'demands of
Great Britain's excess of the' $77,600
claim, such commission to be consti
tuted in a manner satisfactory to the
United States and . Nicaragua.
The foregoing terms, It U believed,
will b-acceptet) by President Zelaya
and trta cabinet.! Ita understood the
suggestion for settlement came from
the Nicaraguan representative at Wash
lngton, and it is believed such adjust
ment would be airreeable to the 'Unit
ed States authorities. If the Nlcara
guan acceptance la given the proposi
tion will be urged -on the London for
er?n office and it Is believed they will
be accepted,
Nicaraguans here count on the act
ive sympathy and substantial support
of other Central ' American republics
in the event of actual host'.lltles. They
do not express belief that their sister
republics will take part as such, but
feel confident ,that Individual volun
teers will come to Nicaragua's aid in
sufficient numbers to give them an
effeotlve armjrof at ieast 60,000 men.

small and unimportant save as ports
of entry for goods, would be abandon

Naval Vessels Hurriedly Ordered
Central American Ports.
Washington, April 29. Some sudden
and unexpected orders were Issued to
the United States naval vessels lata
this afternoon and caused a sensation
fcr a time until the purpose of the or
der was explained. The Alert, which
has been for four months or more at
Panama, watohlng the progress of the
revolutionary movement In Colombia,
was ordered to proceed at once to San
Juan del Sur, the nearest cable port
to Corlnto, Nicaragua. The Raleigh,
now on her way from KlncBton, Ja
maica, to Key West, and expe-ted to
arrive at the latter place at any mo
ment, will And awaiting her orders to
sail at once to Greytown, the eastern
terminus of the proposed Nicaragua
jan-al. The Montgomery, now at Mo
bile, will follow the Raleigh on May
7th, with the Nlcaraguan canal com
mission aboard. The Monterey having
sailed yesterday from Acapulco direct
for Panama, is not expected to touch
at Corlnto, and as she Is now beyond
reach of orders bj wire, she will prob
ably be allowed to relieve the Alert
on guard at Panama, whence she can
be ordered back to Nicaragua If trou.

, Washington, April, 29. The attltudt !
of the United States In the Eastern war
trouble has been clear to the various
powers Interested. In brief ft is that
rhe unvarying policy of this country
Is not to form alliances which may In
volve It In complications with the
countries of EXirope and Asia. It Is a
reassertion' ot the policy of Isolation,
except In so far as the United States
may be able to exercise kindly ad
visory Influence toward the adjustment
of trouble involving Eastern nations.
The -foregoing Is now accepted by dip
lomats here as the policy which will

London, April 23. Commenting upon
the talk- of a general alliance between
Great Britain and the United States,
the 6t. Jamea Gazette says: We would
rather hava an alliance with the Unit
ed States than any other people, but
the standing offensive and defensits
agreement Is a compromising . thing.
Bath aides of the agreement would
act together In a defined region for ft
limited number of objects. Another
matter is that the Interests of Great
Britain and the United States in Cen
tral America, and parts ot South Amer
ica are Identical. We do not intend to
make conquests anywhere In America,
and therefore the United States hu
no grounds for Jealousy. Both nations
desire to trade In peace and are mo
lested by Spanish-American anarchy.

W&flhlngton, April 29. The Impres
sion here is that the situation at Co

a few days at least. The British forces
occupying the town are not likely to-be
attacked unless they endeavor to force
their way inland, and so far as now
known, there is no present nacesH.y for

still convinced that the Nlcaraguan
government will tpay the indemnity,

Every teacher, upon taking charge
of a new school, 'la confronted by an
almost Insurmountable difficulty, that

As a iresuU of this there Is a necS

And elnce a majority bf the un?rad
ed sdhoota employ a rww teacher for
each succeeding year, the loss to the
sohotfs of the entire county is con
sldeflalbOe and ithe more to he regretted
because Ut Is to a mtusure unneoesrary.
All tlhe confusion and Joes of time
oooaaioned by a change of teachers
oourd .he prevented if each teacher,
Upon leaving a school, would prepare a
complete "Yoar Book," for the benefit
if his suocesBor.
Any teacher having a professional
spirit, and fee&rng an Interest in the
advancement of our public schools,
would lelave a su!laible record. of that
kind wMhoult beinj requeued to do
so, but under present conrtlf.ons ii is
not, amd will not be done unless re
quired by the cMreWW s. "'Tfle teachers'

The report, ,to be of use, , WtouId

of the work already done by dh pu
pil and reconvmen da lions as to the
need's of each pupil during the follow
ing year. There should be given a
summary ut the fill? and customs of
the sohool, as well as a general out
line ot tfhe methods pursued by the
teacher making the report.
That much should be required by
the sohool board, and with Jhat by
way .of Introduction, a tea her of or
dinary ability should be able to make
a success of any school.
But I can see how a "Year Book,"
might be of use and interest In other
ways. It could be made record book
of tocaA events, could contain a speci
men of the original work of each pu
pil, and could 'be a re ord of the
progress of tlhe sclhiool and commu
nity. It a "Yeair Book" were prepared and
carefully filed each year, aiter the
lapse of a quarter of a century the
oolleotiton of "Year Books" Would be
tlhe most highly prized property of
the diwtnlct. 'Man could tlhen look
back over their lives amd read a writ
ten raeord of Hhalr progress. The
next generation would receive" an in
calculable Inspiration by reading such
books and carefully observing how
otJhers had gone out from Clatsop
county schools to lives of usefulness
and honor. i .
This tetter use for the "Year Books"
has been suggested to me by the read
ing of Borne old collections Of school
work left In the district by a former
teacher, now our county superintend
ent. Although this collection Is but seven
years aid, our school clerk guards it as
carefully as he would tlhe lust will and
