0. E Persinger Explains tho Origin
and Significance in a Convo
cation Address -Story
of tho Trouble.
The causo and nature of the pres
ent dlsputo between Chilo and Peru
formed the topic of a discussion by
CE. Persinger at t3nvocation yester
day. Mr. Persinger explained by raeanB
of a map the territorial relations be
tween the two countries, over which
the controversy arose. Ho said the
trouble was one of long standing and
arose originally over a mutual agree
ment amouna Chilo. Peru and Bolivia
that their boundaries shouldadhere
to the old colonial limits. A small
dispute arose over an area claimed by
each which was enhanced In 1842 by
valuable discoveries of mineral
wealth. In 1842 tho Spanish forced a
compromise on tho conditions that
tho disputed area should bo under the
joint Jurisdiction of all three coun
tries and under no one or them ex
clusively. Constant iirlfcation ensued
which came near resulting in war in
1874 but a treaty wasTnade giving a
largo area to Peru and Bolivia and to
Chile, important commercial privi
leces. Valuablo nitrate discoveries
caused tho treaty to be disregarded
and aftor some fighting it was de
cided to leave tho matter to a vote to
bo taken in 1894. This Chile ignored
and a conference lias ilnally been
called in which Chile objects to the
consideration of past questions.
Mr. Persinger said tho indications
are now that tho disputed territory
will become Peruvian provinces.

Do you realizo the difference? In

fine crop of fully developed seed corn.
The other fields produced mostly
nubs and some not that. If you
wish to raise a full crop this year,
you cannot do it by planting drouth
stricken seed."
