UNITED STATES AND NICARAGUA
Efforts toward Peaceful Settlement. —On the morning of January 27 Rear Admiral Latimer arrived at Corinto, the west coast seaport of Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, and proceeded at once to the capital. It was indicated that, together with Charles C. Eberhardt, the American Minister, he planned to confer with President Diaz, on the basis of a statement in his possession from the Liberal leader Sacasa, in an effort to secure a peaceful solution of the Nicaragua problem. It was expected that representatives of Sacasa would be called in, and it appeared possible that a settlement might be reached which would involve the elimination of both the rival leaders.
