WHATEVER charges of inactivity may bo laid at tho
doors of tho leaders of tho two factions when have
been struggling or supposed to have been struggling-
for tho control of Nicaragua, tho same cannot bo said
for their press agents. Some time ago dispatches to tho
State Department conveyed tho momentous news that
the forces of Madriz were within twenty miles of Blue
fields, tho citadel of tho revolutionists under Estrada. A
bloody battle was expected at any moment. Twelve days
later tho news was flashed over tlie wire fromGonsul Mot
fatt that the Madriz army was within ten miles of Blue
fields and a battle was expected any moment. It took
twelve days to advance ten miles a very good rate of
progress, it .seems, in Central American revolutionary
The campaign has been conducted thusly: First comes
the news that Estrada has defeated the Madriz forces,
has slain several armies, invaded Maligna and all but got
the country in his pocketbook. Then conies the report
that Madriz has crushed Estrada, takeu Bluefields and
crushed the revels with great bloodshed. So many times
has this happened and so many have been 'wounded and
slain" that Nicaragua must be one vast battlefield of
wounded and dying. A day or so later Consul Mof fatt I
at Bluefields or Consul Ohvares at Maugua will probably
send in a brief dispatch saying that there was a mixup be
tween a party of revolutionists and several of Madriz 's
soldiers. One man was severely hurt by being hit over
the head with a bottle.
Despite all the horrible warring that seems to be going
on the report that a batch of American soldiers of fortune
they are mostly tramps in reality are to sail for the
scenes of hostility seems to create more fear than a whole
native army. It has been openly charged by the gen
erals that the Americans, once in the conflict, do not ob
serve the South American etiquette of fighting at all. In
one case a general perhaps a generalissimo hoisted a
flag of truce to lodge a protest with the enemv that some
Americans were killing his men. In another case an
entire army balked at going into action until it could be
exactly determined in what position three Americans,
who happened to be in the ranks of the opposing army,
were. After much delay the information was secured,
whereat the army dashed gallantly to the attack at right

Great opposition has materialized in the eastern press
against government irrigation projects, and the argument
is made that the reclaiming of worthless lands in the west
will bring vast areas into direct competition with estab
lished eastern communities. They claim that the farmer
wno tills tne land without crovcrnment aid is taxed for
the reclamation of arid and semi-arid lands; and that
these irrigated farms provide a fatal competition against
the farmer who depends upon the rainfall.
The first statement is false, as no one is taxed for re
clamation. Instead of being a menace to the nation, the
irrigation is a benefit and a blessing.
The bonds issued to raise funds to reclaim lands are
purchased by capitalists who received a first mortgage or
its equivalent on the land to be irrigated. It is part of
the contract of any person who enters upon such land that
he repay in a certain number of years the amount so ad
vanced. The funds of the United States Reclamation
Service, which are entirely separate from the bonds, are
raised from the sale of public land in the state where the
project is located. This money is repaid by the land
holder in ten annual installments.
Pawners generally do not irrigate their lands. There
is scarcely an acre of grain land under irrigation. Irri
gated land is too valuable for grain growing. It is used
for fruits and vegetables, including sugar beets, which
yield larger and more profitable returns.
With the exception of fruit, products grown on our
western lands cannot be placed in competition with east
era products because of the expense of transportation.
No eastern farmer will be driven out of business because
of this competition.
Though there is a big increase in the production of
fruit in the west there will never be enough grown to
cause an overproduction. Prices of apples grown in east
ern states are increasing instead of decreasing, and the
supply is constantly decreasing, as is shown bv the state
ment tnat tlie growers ot the United States produced less
than 30,000,000 barrels of apples in 1909, as against more
than 64,000,000 barrels in 1900.
More land in the west is tilled by dry farming than by
irrigation. About 2,000,000 acres are under irrigation
canals and ditches in the northwest as against 5,000,000
