WASHINGTON, D. C., May 27.— Few political events of this year have so deeply stirred political Washington .as the nomination by former Governor ioifford Pinchot by Pennsylvania Re- j publicans, and this reaction was I'ur- ' ther emphasized today When it was learned that senate progressive Republicans arc already /seriously discussing Pinchot's posibilities as a 1932 presidential candidate. This development was regarded as premature by some political observers in Washington, especially in view of the charges and countercharges being hurled by both the Pinchot and Brown ; camps. i It was recalled, however, that Pin- 1 chot was in contact with" Senator Norris of Nebraska, outstanding ! among tho Progressives, almost as i soon as he arrived hero from his tfip | to the South seas. '-- — ' He was also a visitor at the offices of various other senators allied with this wing in the senate. At the, time this was taken only to mean that Pinchot was planning his Pennsylvania race and that there was some prospect I of the Progressive group taking the | stump for him if Ills candidacy was j . for the senate. , i I Now, however, many are Interpret- i ' ing his present very friendly relations j with the so-called Insurgent Repub- | Deans as pointing very definitely to- j ward the 1932 campaign. Back of this is the feeling that Senator Norris has I never been friendly to President Hoover; that Senator Borah has broken with the president on various issues; and that tbe Progressive, wing has been definitely at odds with the chief executive on most of the larger qucs- , tions raised during this congress. j These all point to the possibility that I the p>lmaHes uonvenllofis Are held Ih 1332. They point wit that Pinchot is olie of' the fe^ eastern Republicans who sees eye to eye with the western group, both on prohibition and such economic Issues as public) utilities. The Plnohot emphasis on the Pennsylvania public service commission, and his reorganization plan are already paralleled by expressions of many western senators. mult cur.

We could go on and on, for mar.y have an outstanding individuality, frequently amusing yet never- thele'ss interesting. Our .rip out of New York was through a dense fog and we could not see anv of the harbor, the pilot remaining with us nine hours, which they said was quite unusual. The weather and sailing after that was lino and Cuba was reached, and arrival at Havana, stop of live hours, time for sight seeing tour and a'visit to the shops and cigar factory for a supply as well as other resorts not spoken of in detail. All aboard at 5 p. m. in high spirits after leaving Havana, especially spirits In four days arrived at Colon, Panama Canal Zone.

For days after we saw nothing but water and scarcely a ship passing. We finally saw at a distance the coast of Venezuela, then Ecuador far off. until we arrived at Tulara, our lirst stop since leaving the canal. As our flrst stop here is in Peru, it may not be amiss to give a littlei history of that country: Area, 533,916 square miles; population, 5,000,000, estimated. Spanish predominates. In Lima, 350,000, and over 3,000,000 In- di8Jin of no benelit to country. Climate has three distinct zones. Alqng the coast one ilnds a strip of Sahara desert, where the summer is dry. Beyond it rise the Andes, where it is always winter. In the far interior a tropical jungle, known as the Montana, slopes toward the Amazon basin, and here is summer again. The second climate, one would naturally think, would grow hot as one approaches the equator, only on the contrary is at times cool, for the Humbolt current flowing up along the coast from Antarctic regions, upsets all natural Panama hats are worn by the natives hereabouts, mostly at the town of Catacaos, near Puira. Good hats can be bought for from one to three pounds, S4 to. $12. Peruvians incidentally scorn panamas as suited only to the peasantry and much prefer the stiff brimmed creations of New York. In the 300 years of Spanish rule which followed, some forty-one successive viceroys had headquarters in Lima from which they governed the entire continent, later divided into three viceregal territories with separate offices. Peru was the great royalist stronghold and the last region to be freed of Spanish domination. It required the help of San Martin and Bolivar, coming from Argentine and Venezuela, assisted by a British Lord Cochrane with a Chilean fleet to emancipate Lima and its environs. Bolivar's lieutenant finally beat the royalists forces on Dec. 9, 1824, the final great conflict? of the long drawn out struggle a,nd the old viceroy became the republic of Peru. Following the overthrow of Spanish authority, Lima lost much of its splendor and for many years was on the down grade. Its sons, basking in Da'ved streets.
