Digging The Ditch at Panama.
So many stories have been told re
garding life at the Panama Canal, J
and these same stories are of such a'
contradictory nature, that to get at
the true fact, told by one who has
been right in the midst of it is surely
A. C. Gibbens, a skilled mechanic,
who has been in Honolulu for a few
weeks, and sailed for the Colonics on
the Moaaa, stated to a Bulletin re
porter a fe wfacts regarding life at
the big ditch at Panama, that may
be of interest.
Mr. Gibbens was employed as a
skilled mechanic for eight months on
the work now going on at Panama.
The grim specter (fever) that is ever
present there at last caused hiin to
resign and seek health in a northern
climate. There are two hospitals in
the district, the Panama, and Ameri
can hospital. Both of these institu
tions, says Mr. Gibbens, are full to the
doors with fever patients. Deaths
from fever have become so frequent
that little or no attention is paid to
them now. Fever and malaria ere
the curse of that country . The mos
quitoes are ever present in large
numbers, and are directly responsible
for the spread of fever, although the
authorities throw every safeguard
about the quarters of the workmen,
and make continual warfare against
The malaria, says Mr. Gibbens, is
another source of trouble. He says
that its deadly vapors rise right from
the ground similar to a fog, and that
the deeper one goes 'nto the canal
digging work the thicker becomes
the malaria. He thinks that laborers,
or mechauics, with good, healthy
constitutions will stand a chance
down there, but he advises all men
addicted to liquor to keep away from
the Panama Canal, for to stop drink
ing liquor is sure death, as the con
stitution will not tolerate the change
aud remain healthy; and to continue
indulgence will end the saor.e way
The principal workers, those who
do the actual digging, are natives
from the West Indies, and Calagoes
from the mountaius of Spain. They
are paid 80 cents Mexican per day,
that is 40 cents of United States
money and they are furnished quar
ters to live in. Food they must pur
chase themselves, which costs them
about 18 cents a day. The Govern
ment is ready to accept any laborers
who may apply for work, but they
are generally gathered in large num
bers and brought to the Isthmus.
Skilled mechanics, such as machini
ists, carpen'er forempn and the like
command wages ranging from $150
to $250 per month. Th's includes
quarters to live in. Quarters are
furnhhed everybody. The govern
ment will not allow private quarters
to be erected. Sanitation is the all
absorbing question at the big canal.
this manual lies in its showing that
the Forest policy of the Government,
both in principle and in practice, is
for the benefit of the ordinary man,
for the benefit of every citizen equal
ly. There is still a tendency to think
of the National Forests as "pre
serves" closed to use, and to leave
the public lands exposed to unregu
lated Individual exploitation. Where
these misapprehensions still prevail
"Tho Use of the National Forests'
will go far to correct them.

Police Threatened with Dismissal
by Carter's Cook.
The police last Saturday night had
the eaucherie to arrest Governor
Carter's cook, one Ah Tin by name,
and they are now filled with fear and
apprehension of the consequences of
their rash act. It appears that Ah
Tin and twelve other Chinese were
gambling at. a house at Pauoa when
the police made their appearance
The at rest was a particularly wel
come one, as this gang of Chinese,
wnich consisted mainly of the cooks
of several prominent familes of this
city, had boasted that the police
would never be able to catch them
Ah Tin showed more agility than
the rest of the outfit and managed to
escape, but not without being recog
nized by the officers. As a conse
ouence Officer Ahi was sent out frr
him yesterday. He found him on the
street and took him to the police sta
tion in spite of the vehement threats
uttered by his captive. At the station
Ah Tin took the officer severely to
task for having the effrontery to ar
rest a person of his high station. . He
was, he said, the Governor's cook,
and counted among his intimate
friends Chief Justice Frear and As
sociote Justice Wilder. It was his
intention to let these gentlemen know
of the indignity which had been offer
ed him, and as a result a clean sweep
woulu surely follow among the min
ions of the police.
This morning Ah Tin discreetly for.
rited his $15 bail. The rest or the
outfit pleaded guilty and were fined
$4 and costs each. Bulletin.
