that City of Managua is Hostile
' to America.
BluefieWs, Nicaragua. It is learned
'from an -authoritative source that a
'reign of terror is being maintained In
.Managua and that not less than 500
persons identified with political affairs
are in the prisons. A Catholic sc
citey has been ordered to cease send
ing food to the prisoners, and these
are in a fair way to starve to. death
as they are allowed only 2 cents a
day for food. Corporal punishment
is meted out daily to various alleged
Zelaya, 'in order .to create an im
pression that the sentiment of the
people of Managua" is hostile toward
"America and Americans, recently or
dered Amelio Estrada, a prominent
liberal and brother of the revolutions
ist chief, to organize a demonstration
against that country and its people,
out this he refused to do, and Zelaya
had him' arraigned on a fictitious
charge. " ' '
It is understood that Julian Irias,
the minister general, who has many
adherents at Leon and Cbinandega,
has been making attempts to start an
uprising in his favor as Zelaya's suc
cessor, but whether with Zelaya's con
sent is not known. It is reported
also that Irias' home had 'been sur
rounded 'by soldiers.
Further authoritative dispatches re
ceived here state that 500 of Zelaya's
"forces have been entrenched for the
jpurpose of preventing the American
marines from passing over the bridge
linto Corinto. Since Thursday last,
when General Estrada became prac
tically certain that General Vas
cesque, in command of a portion of
Zelaya's troops, was attempting to
make a detour of Rama for the pur
pose of seizing an unguarded river
point and descending upon Bluefields,
the forces of the provisional govern
ment have been acting with great
energy. Rama has been occupied and
other less important river landings
have been strongly guarded. All avail
able boats have been held in reserve
to rush reinforcements to any point
that may be threatened.
Estrada Asks Advice.
Washington. Senor Castrillo, the
representative of the Nicaraguan in
surrectionists in this city, received a
cablegram from General Estrada,
head of the revolutionary movement,
which declares that the revolutionists
are strongly entrenched at Rama and
that the forces of President Zelaya
are two days' march from the city.
The cablegram asserts that a revolu
tionary victory Is certain, but that
following it the revolutionists will
take no" definite steps until their pro
gram is approved by the State depart
ment at Washington. This is pre
sumed to refer especially to any de
cision that may be made in the case
of President Zelaya, should the in

Washington. The white slave traf
fice bill of Mr. Mann, chairman of the
house committee on interstate and for

girls for immoral purposes.

HEAR A NEW THEORY
ALL' LIFE OWES ORIGIN TO BAC
TERIA OR MICROBE.
SIMPSON. MAKES AN ADDRESS
Prof. Dean of Kansas Takes -Ground
That Breeding is Secondary to
'Probably the most novel- address
given before the American Breeders'
Ass'n in connection with the National
Corn show was delivered by Q. I.
Simpson, member of the committee on
theoretical research in heredity. The
speaker contends that all life owes its
origin to bacteria and he offered a
highly technical and scientific paper
to back up -his statements.
"All animal and plant life owes its
existence to germs, or, if you please,
microbes," declared the speaker. This
statement caused some divergence of
opinion and friendly discussion. Mr.
Simpson's address attracted consider
able attention and is destined to incite
widespread interest as he will deliver
the same lecture before the American
association for the Advancement of
Science at Boston in the near future.
Three men of national reputation
addressed the meeting of- the associa
tion at the National Corn, exposition
and each advanced some idea which set
their hearers to thinking. II. J. Wa
ters, dean of the Kansas Agricultural
college, took the stand that breeding
was secondary to good feeding when
it came to a matter of putting broad
hips on cattle.
"If you would have a big, broad
steer you must see that he is well fed
from his youtn," said Dean Waters,
speaking on "The Influence of Nutri
tion on Animal Type, or the Effect of
Feeding on the Types of Animals."
"Students have always approved of
the stand that heredity plays the most
important part in shaping cattle and
have endeavored to accept the theory
that feed and environments were se
condary to heredity. I will try to
measure the influence of nutrition and
leave the balance to account for by
"With reference to the principles in
volved in their improvement by selec
tion and breeding, we may divide ani
mals into three general classes," said
Prof. W. J. Spillman of the United
States Department of Agriculture, in
speaking on "Application of the Prin
ciples of Heredity to the Improve
ment of Plants and Animals."
"The third class includes those or
ganisms in which cross fertilization
normally occurs. It includes all the
higher animals. Amongst plants there
are some species in which cross pol
lenatlon is necessary to seed produc
tion, but generally speaking most
plants in this class are what we de
scribe as open pollenated.
"One very interesting deduction
from the law of recombination is this;
that when a horned animal crops out
in a polled breed, or a red animal oc
curs in a black breed, both of the
parents of such an animal are impure
with reference to the character which
crops out. A few horned calves are
born in all polled breeds, which sim-.
ply means that there are some indi
viduals in the .breed, which are not
pure bred with reference to horns.
Likewise, a few red calves occur in all
black breeds of cattle which show
that some individuals of the breed are
not pure bred with preference to h'ack
By taking advantage of the iaw of
recombination it is possible to pro
duce almost an indefinite number of
new breeds, breeding as true to type
as our present breeds."
State School Apportionment
State Treasurer Brian has certified
to the state superintendent that there
is available for the semi-annual school
apportionment a total of $258,904.23.
This money was derived from the fol
lowing sources; State school taxes,
$869.02; interest on school and saline
lands sold, $33,120.00; interest in
school and saline lands leased, $81.
076.65; interest on bonds, $136,234.40;
interest on Investment warrants, $4,
253.65; game and fish licenses. $2,376;
discount on bonds, $974.42. The funds
are to be apportioned to the various
counties in accordance with school po
pulation and will then be apportioned
to school districts in the counties.
To Raise Cattle Quarantine.
State Veterinarian Paul J. Juckiness
hopes to raise the quarantine against
rabbles in cattle in the counties of
Dawson, Custer and Boyd within the
next six weeks. These counties have
been cleared of the parasitic disease
and arrangements will soon be made
to raise the quarantine. Mr. Jucki
ness will meet with representatives of
the department of agriculture in Den
ver, January 12, to set a date for the
raising of the quarantine from those
counties. It means much to shippers,
because a two weeks' detention ot
cattle in the South Omaha stockyards
