Tinoco called extraordinary session of Congress to meet August 1 for sundry announced purposes. The regular session expires tomorrow. Yesterday the Congress authorized Tinoco to make peace with Germany.

Rumor circulated again that Tinoco will leave Costa Rica soon with Juan B. Quiros to succeed him, and the Mexican Minister is to secure the approval of Julio Acosta while in Nicaragua. Quiet for a few days, no new outrages reported.
