to defray the expense- of putting
down the revolution.
It is frequently stated, and with a
good deal of truth, that there is
never more than, one political party
in Central America, and that is the
party in power. But as a matter of
fact, there is and always has, been
two well defined political parties.
They are the conservatives on ono
side and the liberal on the other.
The reason for its being stated that
there is only one political party is
the fact that whichever party is in
power maintains its despotic sway
to s.uch an extent that no opposition
dares show itself in any form what
soever. Sometimes there is a pre
tense of having an election, but such
an election is more than a farce for,
should any misguided element of the
population or section of the country
be beguiled into believing that they
are going to bo allowed to vote sure
enough and put up a candidate in
opposition to the government pro
gram, the unfortunate candidate
would, be surely taken out and shot.
The great difference between the
conservatives and the liberals is as
much a family tradition as anything
else. The conservatives, as a rule,
belong to the older families, the fam
ilies of the purest Spanish extraction
that still remains in the country.
They desire to preserve their relig
ion and religious beliefs and consid
er the simple life of their forebears
as much more preferable than the
rapid pace of the progrosistaB or lib
erals. The liberals, on the other
hand, strive to go at a' mad pace.
upsetting in their career all that is
sacred and venerable in the country.
They profess, to hate the clergy;
they frequently desecrate the church
es and try to stamp out all religion.
They are extravagant in their lives,
in their mad career for gain and in
Zelaya has been the embodiment
of this wild extravagance since he
has been the ruler of Nicaragua', but
he has managed to become immense
ly wealthy thereby. He has monop
olized the few industries of the coun
try or placed a tax upon them by
which he alone is the beneficiary.
He has controlled the customs
houses, supervised and regulated tire
tariff, and, as a' matter of fact,
looked after the financial end of his
business as president as well as that
part of it necessary to maintain his
Zelaya's predominating character
istic is his courage. He is absolute
ly fearless, and that is one reason
why he is mpre thoroughly hated
than any one of the other Central
American satraps. The other reason
is, like that of his preceptor, old
Barrios of Guatemala, his one ambi
tion has been to unite the five re
publics under one government, with
himself, of course, at its "head. Va
rious have been his schemes and pro
jects to accomplish this end. At one
time fomenting a revolution in Sal
vador, he has failed in that direc
tion. At another time he succeeded
in placing Davlla in. the presidential
chair of Honduras with the under
standing that Davila' would unite
Honduras to Nicaragua, only to have
Davila tell him to go to the devil
after his seat was safely secured, and
Costa Rica has always been a thorn
in his side because he couldn't get
up any revolution there, in which
somothing might accrue to his bene
fit or to his pet scheme. For these
reasons Zelaya has come to be known
as the mischief-maker of Central
Compared with some of the other
rulers who are or who. have been
in the limelight, he is undoubtedly
the boldest and bravest of them all,
with the single exception, perhaps,
of Castro of Venezuela. But, he is
a different type-of man from nnatm
who was of low origin and as vicious
'as he was low. Zelaya Is educated,
