I spent some time with Mr Dudley in fVru. when I visited that country, and. him. went to the top of the Andes w the railroad built by Henry Meiggs. the Catifornun. at an enormous cost boot 30 years ago. That road ts the highest mountain railway of the world. I; takes you in one day from the Pa-fjfr ocesn clear to the top of the Andes, tad lands you on the other side more than three miles above the sea. The road goes through some of the richest mineral territory of South America, and It was originally intended to reach the .unous Cerro de Pasco silver mines. Meiggs' money gave out before he got here and. although the road had been rontinued after his death, it was from 9 to 70 miles away from Cerro de Pasco when I rode over it. American Capital in Peru. The enterprise I refer to. continued Minister Dudley, "is connected somewhat with the railroad by which we traveled to the tops of the Andes. It is the purchase of the Cerro de Pasco mines by a corps of American million-tires, headed by J. B. Haggin. D. O. Mills. Henry C. Frick and others, among whom are said to be the Hearst heirs and the Vanderbilts. The company Is largely composed of men who have been connected more or less with the great copper mines at Anaconda, Mont, which are supposed to be the richest copper mines on the globe, but which may be equaled by Cerro de Pasco. They have already spent $8,000,000 In purchasing the property and In extending the railroad to Cerro de Pasco, and I understand that they will spend S2.000.000 more before next fall. They have bought up the mines from individual owners, not asking concessions of the Peruvian government, and their work is all done said to have in the neighborhood of only the best of the ore could be taken to the smelter. There must be a great deal of silver still in the dumps about those mines. This ore is now being carried to the smelter by the new railroad, built by the American syndicate. I understand, however, that the rates of transportation by llamas have been so reduced that they are carrying ore at about the same freight ratea as the railroad, the animals walking along beside the tracks." Peru's Mineral Wealth. "la Peru still rich in gold and silver. Mr Dud ley V "Yes: but it is hard to tell Just how rich it Is Much of the country has not been thoroughly prospected, and the mines may be better further down. In these Cerro de Pasco mines the upper deposits consisted of a great body of low-grade silver ore. more than a mile and a half long hy three-quarters of a miie wiae. mis was worked down to a the rcaynli is only about 150 mile. When It is built one can go In barges and boats down that river to the A mason. That road would open up the Peruvian territory adjoining the Acre territory which Bolivia baa Just sold to Brazil. There are valuable rubber forests In that region, and it is probable that similar forests are also found on Peruvian soil. The government would like to have a railroad there; so that It could quickly transport troops to that point in case of trouble. The Brazilians are. you know, to build a railroad In that region to facilitate travel to and from the Amazon." The Backwoods of Peru. "It mut be difficult f.r Pern to control her territory on the eastern slopes of the Andes? They are practically In accessible, are they not?" "As far as eaay travel la concerned. yea." said the minister to Peru. "Take Iquitos. which Is in Peru, on the Mara- I - hul . h., .... - . .

Both of these companies w'.ll vrobnbly do well." American Trade with Peru. "How about our trade with Peru. Mr Dudley T' I asked. "It la steadily Increasing, nlthougn the people of the United States do not make much effort to push It. When 1 first went to Peru the Germans exceeded u In their exports to that country. We are now far In advance of them and second only to a real Britain. Our trade tcday la almost three times what It was when I first came to the country, and It seems to me that the prospects for a continued Increase are good." "What do we sell to Peru?" I asked. "Wheat, breadstuff nnd all aorts of hardware and machinery. Much of the wheat comes from our Pacific coast es. The machinery Is largely from the east.

Mr Dudley, some New Vork parties, known as the Pacific company, had u concession ft.r coal mines in the Andes, and w.-re about to build a railroad to them What is that company doing?" "The Pacific company has recently secured new concessions, and valuable ones. It has a strip of land running from Paca-mayo to Chlmbote. and extending from thCre back up the Andes to one of the navigable branchea of the Amazon. There are coal mines In the territory, and with the concession goes the right to build a railroad to get this coal to the seacoa&t. One of the great trouble about the west coast of South America Is the lack of good coal. Ther-zre mines In southern Chile about the ay of Conception, but the coal there Is not of the bc.u quality. The deposit -t extend for some distance along the coat, rnrf far out under the water. Hundreds of miners are employed, and the men work In tunnels away down below the bed of the ocean.

As a result the coat of portauon has been enormous, snd suit, mining is expensive, and coal from Australia -and England competes with the Chilean coal. The coal that the Pacific company's railroad will open up Is on the highlands of the Andes, and It will cost but little to get it down to the seacoast. If they have as good deposits as they think, their concession should be a very valuable one." Railroads to the Amazon. "I suppose that rnilwav will be event u ally extended by the Pacific company to the Amazon 7" "Probably so," replied Minister Dudley, "but you must remember that It Is only a concession aa yet. There Is no road built. It Is also planned to extend the Oroyo railroad to the Ucayall river, which la one of the navigable branches of the Amazon. The distance from the end of the Oroyo line, the same road wo nave been talking about in connection with ins now copper properties, to Automobiles for Inca Capitsl. "How abnnt the railroad that takes one from the Pacific to lake Tltacaca? Ha it been extended?" "That road has sn extension to Sicuani. and from there a wide carriage road has been built to Cuzco. the old capital of the Incas. There are freight automobiles now used to connect Cuzco with the trains, and this road 'i;ht to open up the ruins of that famous city to visitors. There are good trains from the Pacific to lake Tlticaca. and it will now take but a short time to reach Cuzco from there. Cuzco Is a town of about 30.ftj0 or so. It Is the center of a rich province and a busy place, though it has nothing of its political Importance of the past At the time that the Spaniards came it was perhaps the richest of all the Indian cities south of the isthmus. Ptsarro got much of his booty from there, and the tradltton Is that he took from one native temple 40.000 pounds of gold and 80. nw pounds of silver. 8nme of this enme from the temple of the Sun. at Cuzco." "How about the hidden treasures or the Incas. Mr Dudley? It as said they burled their gold in the Andes when the Spaniard began to rob then?" "You will hear such traditions in nil parts of the Andes, but I doubt whether there Is much truth in them. Th Spaniards carried away about all the gold and silver that the Incas had mined, and. so far as I know, but few hidden treaaures have come to light. You zee. the Incas were the ruling class, an.l tne rest of the people practically worked for them. Aa a result, ntojt of the rilver and gold came into tneir hands, and they turned it over to the Sinn-lards. 8uch mining a t'.uy did was after th- rudest methods, and the product could not have been verv grrat. Nevertheless It is said that the Spaniards, for a time, shod their horses with silver, and Pmrro. when he captured Atahualpa. '.he Inca king, by treachery, agreed to release him If he would fill a room 17 feet wide and JO feet long with gold. This was done, and history tells how Ptsarro then went back on his word end put the king to death. It is aald that some of the trcaauree of the Incas were burled, shortly after this, In l.iK Tlttescs and otherwheres, but. if so. they are yet to be foend." Bolivia's New Railroads. "I understand. Mr Dudley, that a new railroad has been built from lake Tlticaca to La Pas?" "Yes. a mad has been built, but It does not go down Into the city of I-i Paz You may remember that there to a great plateau away up there, almost three milea above the sea. In which Tlticaca and I. Paz He, at a distance of or 60 miles apart. Tlticaca lies In one basin. La Paa In another. The road begins at nuuquai. Ihe port In Bolivia wtich you reach by sailing across lake Tlticaca from Puno In Peru. The new railway croases the plateau to the Alto, or rim of the basin containing Ia Paa. nnd there stops. As you get out at the ! depot you can walk a short distance and look down at the chief city of Bolivia. which lien about a thousand feet below you. Ther are now carrluges which take you down to the city, but plans ha.. M-en made fair cable or eleetrlc l,i...- and eventually Ihsae will probably go through. Bolivia also experts to build new railroads with the 2.UUU.UU0 which It re ceived from Brazil for the Acre territo ry, and umong the lines propnewd la one from La Pas to Oruro. on the Antofa- gssls line, thus giving Bolivia a rail road outlet to ihe Atlantic. I believe there are also propositions to connect with the Chilean and the Argeminv railway systems." 'la Peru developing along electrical agar "Not vry rapidly." was tbs reply.

I keep In shape with long walk and working about the place." The Tuacbance family are very devout Roman Catholics, and George pointed out the school house and chapel where hto boys were being taught good citizenship and Christianity. It was one more evidence of the character of the great fraternity of baseball players who pass from the lime light into their natural places. Laughingly I remarked, "Well. George. I see they have a couple of first basemen engaged to give you a run for the place next season with the champions." "So I hear." was the answer, with a smile. "I'm willing to take my ehances. I might feel lonesome :f they were not looking for someone to take my place. I guess I'm too good. Then Big George .added t;uletlv, "I think I will play better than ever next season, as I like the boy and the people of Boston. At first they started to roast me, but of late I have no complaint to make: in fact.
