of tho dispatch from Burns, McKlnney

Chandler has been In the service of the
United States in Central and South Amer
ica for aeveral years. He says: "There is
a general belief that the Central Ameri
cans are on the eve of revolution. Re
cently this belief has apparently been
backed up by telegraphic reports of gev
erafl Journals In the United States. In
truth, 'four out of five republics are today
apparently quiet. The fifth, Salvador, has
had some riots recently, due to the con-
nlvanses of Ezeta, headed by General,
Antonio Ezeta, Who is now In San Fran
cisco, trying to organize a filibustering
party with American capital In Califor
nia. The other republics are doing their
bent to build up their national credit
and keep turbulent elements In their
places. The country is rich In minerals,
as well as ail tropical products and only
needs energy and capital of Americans to
build up a new Eldorado."

Tho audience was on tip toe at the
unusual Incident, and iwhen Harvey, ris

was great cheering, mingled with, hisses.
