IT IS from the state of Yucatan,
Mexico, that the Blsal fiber is ob
tained for the manufacture of
binder twine for the American
farmers. That far southern state
of the war-ridden republic also sup
plies most of the raw chicle for the
manufacture of chewing gum, writes
w. D. Hornaday in Grit. These are
the two principal reasons why the re
cent blockading of the nort of Pro-
rjreso by a Carranza war vessel cre
ated such a stir in certain industrial
slrcles of the United States.
During the last twentv-flve vears
the growing and exportation of sisal
(lber, which Is obtained from the
leaves of the henequln plant, have
brought enormous wealth to Yucatan,
it is said that Merlda is the home of
more multimillionaires than any city
3f its size in the world. These men
of wealth all made their fortunes out
Df the sisal industry.
Up to the beginning of the present
revolutionary period in Mexico and
dating back more than a decade Meri-
aa was the real money center of Mex
ico. A veritable stream of gold con
stantly flowed out of the local banks
through the channels of trade to oth
er parts of country and even into the
larger financial centers of the United
States and Europe. The annual rev
enue which the Yucatan planters ob
tained from their sisal product ranged
from 120,000,000 to $40,000,000. These
men have continued to reap large
profits from the Industry all through
the war disturbances as the exporta
tion of the fiber was not interfered
with by the different contending po
litical elements until recently. There
is at presont an unusually large Btock
of fiber on hand awaiting exDort.
Most of it has been already purchased
by an American company that manu
factures binder twine on an extensive
scale. The Outgoing shipments of the
product will now be made as rapidly
as ships can take it out of Progreso,
which is the deepwater port of Yuca
Most Progressive Part of Mexico.
The henequln planters have been
made to contribute several mill Inn
dollars to the different revolutionary
factions during the last few years, but
the levying of this tribute has been
no burden to them. On the whole, the
Btate has probably been more prosper
ous in the face of the revolutions than
any other part of Mexico. This was
due in part to its isolation from the
remainder of the republic. It has no
railroad connections with the other
states, with the exception of Cam
peche. The United Railways of Yuca
tan has a line that runs to the town
of Campeche. Just before Diaz re
signed from the presidency the fed
eral government granted a concession
to a foreign syndicate for the con
struction of a railroad from Campeche
to a connection with the National
Tehuantepeo railroad, a distance of
about 450 miles. The surveys for the
proposed line were being made when
the Madero revolt caused a stop to

Always Friendly to Americans.
The people of Yucatan have always
been friendly to Americans. They have
a great admiration for the United
States. In fact, this liking was so
great that the government authorities
there about 1848 during the war be
tween Mexico and the United States,
made a formal offer that Yucatan be
taken over by the latter country.
This offer was refused by the govern
ment at Washington. Bordering the
then state of Yucatan on the south
was British Honduras. When the pro
posed annexation to the United States
was refused a proposition was made
to the British government that it
take over the state and add it to Brit
ish Honduras. This plan also met

Rural Credits Again.
Getting the money back on to the
farm is a Job much discussed at vari
ous conventions these days; but there
are one or two points that seem worth
stating: Rural credits is a problem
of' development, not of charity. We
have no downtrodden peasantry In
this country, and the legal rate of
Interest has somewhat restricted the
mortgage sharks. Getting completely
rid of these fellows Is important, but
It is much more Important to secure
In all parts of our country the best
possible Investment and use of agri
cultural capital. This should not be
done by the privilege method, by state
aid, tax exemption, and so on. If the
American farmer can't pay his way,
nobody can. The real need is better
organization of the farming business
by means of rural cooperative banks,
which will not only do the banking
for their members, but will also give
them the benefits of centralized buy
ing and selling. The banking will be
based on the actual known values of
the neighborhood, and the trading op
erations will be real and not specu
lative. Along with individual zeal and
skill in farming will go a cooperative
use of the farmers' business strength.
Rural credits must be taken up as a
part of this larger problem of agricul
tural business organization. Collier's
