How Historic Spots in Isthmus of Panama Are Being Opened Up

?*? ThlB road runs over the way
picked out by the Spaniards centuries
ugo, and much of the new pavement
I? relaid with the cobblestones over
which the Indians and mules carried
their cargoes of gold from the Atlan?
tic to the Pacific. All tho treasures of
the Incas which Piz-irro stole passed
over this highway. They amounted to
millions and were enough to have al?
most paved It with gold. The road
went from here over the old Crnres
trail. It was originally covered with
field rock, and our government la now
planning to reopen it. and it will rha
eadamlzo the highway as far as
Cfucea on the Chagres Hlver, a distance
of about eighteen miles it was over
that rojd that Henry Morgan, the buc?
caneer, came to capture old* Panama,
and it. remained the chief highway
across tho Istmus until 173*, when
the Spanish treasure ships stopped call?
ing at Porto Bello.
In "hi Panama.
I drove out ov.-r this read to-day
to visit old Panama. Governor Mau?
rice 11 Thatcher, who will have charge
of the repairs on the Crucea road, was
with me, and together we examined
the work now being done on the road
|o old Panama.
? Leaving A neon, we skirted the savan?
nas or open grazing country outside.
.Crossed tho limits of the Canal Zone
and after a ride of iabout seven or
eight miles came to the old Spanish
bridge beyond Which are the lulns of |
what was once (lie most Important
town on our hemisphere.
Old Panama was founded Just .about
1'ftO years before our Pilgrim Fathers
landed on Plymouth Hock. It was fed
by the riches of Peru, which wer.
brought for shipment across the 1-th
jntis and rapidly grew. As time went
on the city increased in Importance
and mighty buildings were, erected.
One of these was a cathedral, th? tower
and some, of the walls of ?viilrh ur-i
Mill standing. I have climbed into the
, tower and had myself photographed
In one of the second-story windows
The tower Is. 1 judge, 100 feet high,
?and at ono side of it is a great well
containing the stairway Which led to
the hell on Its summit.
These ruins are now overgrown with
vegetation. They are half burled In
the earth, and in places trees have,
sprouted and now shade the ruins.
[Inside the walls of the cathedral is
?one tree more than 100 feet high.
Others have sprt i.1 their mots about
'the walls .as though to protect them,
and some have raised parts of the
Walls and carried them lip with them.
'The whole country about Is covered
(With the debris of the . old masonry.
; including bricks and pieces Of pottery
.and carved stone All were a part of
the Panama of three centuries ago.
!ln making the new roadway a great
deal of the old site has been dug over
and the land reminds one of the plowed
? fields about Carthage in Northern
Panama in Kino.
It Is said by the best authorities that
old P.anam was considerably larger
than the Panama, of to-day. When
destroyed by the pirates It had over
.fifty thousand inhabitants. It had
200 warehouses. 2.000 line dwellings
and .Vina houses of ordinary build.
Many of its buildings were of brick
'The bricks were made square and tyere
jabout two inches thick, -'hey were
: burnt red. M any of these bricks He

excavations all over the site of thev'
oM city and to open the past as far
.is possible to the light of th" pres?
ent. Already there Is a great tourist
travel out to old Panama, and with
the -otnpletlon of the esnal this will
be one of the sights of the country. A
onceasion has already been given to
build an electric railway, and this will
probably he constructed" In time.
In the POotstepa of the lliiccaneeja.
This country fairly teems with his- j
torv. All the wealth of the Pacilic
coast of our continent was brought
here, and the pirates and buccaneers
hovered about these waters, hoping to
catrh and rob the Spanish gilleons. '
Now and then the -ities were besieged,
and one of the most graphic stories
of our hemisphere is that of Captain
Henry Morgan nn?i his band In the cap?
ture of Panama. The story was noted
lown by one of the pirates, who kept
re brd ol everything. It was pub?
lished about seven years r.fter the
events occurred, and It describes the
expedition as a whole and In detail.
The pirate writer's name w.is John
Esqticmellng, and he published his
narrative In 1S7S. it was first printed
m Initch, hut It has been done over
Into Spanish and English, and copies
of it may now be bought.
Esnuemeling tells first of the cap
lute of Porto Hello by Morgan. The
forts which he look are still in exis?
tence, and they Ho across the harbor
near -the great quarries, from wTYere
we have been getting the stone , for
tin- concrete work of the Gatum locks !
Porto Bellt. Is practically nothing to'-i
d ly, but in 1668 It was one of the
i lef landmarks of the New 'World, and
was noted everywhere for Its weaitn
and Importance. It was then the
>: ngest fortified town that the Kins
of Spain had In the West Indies, with
the exceptions only of Cartagena and
Esquemollng says that Its castles
w. re almost Imprognable. and that the
garrison consisted of 300 soldiers. It
had a population of about 3,000 peo?
ple, and among Its buildings were some
great warehouses where the silver and
gold were brought upon mules, and
where the ships landed the negroes
brought here to he used as slaves.
When Morgan took Porto Hollo he
slipped In and embarked some distance j
up the coast. He then marched with |
his buccaneers down to the forts and 1
put the Spaniards to the sword. He
blew up one of the castles and set
lire to another. The battle was a ter- ,
rible one. and the Spaniards fought
bravely. The governor of the town
refused to surrender, saying. "I would
rathe? die as a soldier than be hanged .
as a coward." * I
After taking the town the pirates
looted It. They tortured the citizens
to make them givsi up t'nelr wealth,
and this with such cruelties that many
died on the rack.

Morgan now sent word across the
isthums to the cuizlmis of oil Panama,
demanding a ransom. -This was re?
fused, and the pirate went with nis
crew hark to Cuba and thence to Ja- I
ma lea to prepare for its capture. They!
had then In ready money 260,000 pieces
of eight, as well as a great stock of
linens, silks and other goods.
The fall of old Panama occurred in
1671. and the fleet which started ou?i

The Trip Aern<? ?he iMhmtl*.
Coming to the Isthmus they made
tlvtir way up the Itlver Chagres to
what was then known as the. Castle of
the Chattier-. This was Pan Eoronzo, a
picnicking place for tho canal em?
ployes of to-day. There was s fort
Hier?: and some sort of a structure
called a castle, which I suppose was
only n blockhouse.
At any rate, they took the castle
and fort after a strong defense on
the part of the Spaniards, who cried
out. ''.Come on, ye English dogs, ene?
mies to Cod and our King! Ve shall
not go to Panama this bout:"
The pirates use', fireballs and finally
burned down the fort. They lost about
one hundred men during the battle.
One can follow tho road from Sau
T-orenzo to old Panama now. It goes
right through tho jungle, but is plain?
ly marked. The pirates cut their way
through it and almost starved on the
way. At one time they were In such
straits that they rooked some leather
bags which they had found in tho
fort, but this food fermented In their
stomachs and gnawed their very

last enme to Has Cruces, where Vau new
road is to go. a s they hcaretl the
town they saw smoke, and supposed
that the Spaniards were cooking their
dinner. They found that the smoke
came from the ruins. The Spaniards
had fired Las Cruces and fled, Th<
pirates greedily drank some Peru wine
that was left, hut the wine was poison?
ed, anel Ii made them sick almost unto
A nonic with tt'liii nun..
Leaving t.is Cruces, the pirate army
w?nt on over the Hu? of the road
which we are now about to macadam?
ize, and at last they came to a moun?
tain, from where they could see the
racitlc Ocean Doing down this, they
entered the savannas, which are Just
outside the present city of Panama
and not morn than a mile from the
Tivoli Hotel at Aneon. Here they
found some cattle, which they killed
They ate the meat half raw. They
camped on the savannas for a day. and
thence went on to attack the city of
old Panama. The Spaniards thought
to defend themselves by using wild
bulls, a drove of which they sent In
front of them, hut the bulls turned anel
ran back on their owiicir, and thus
aided In their defeat.
It did not take Morgan long to cap- j
ture the city and loot it, nnd, accord?
ing to Esquemellng's story. It con- i
tained fl vast treasure. The churches
and monasteries were full of gold l !
silver, and In the tire which took
place much'SOld plate was. molted by
the flames. Some e,f this may be found
In tho excavations now making.
After destroying the. city and spend?
ing some time In a great' drunken
spree, the pirates took, the treasure
and their captives and started back to

the women and priest's on tlie rack and
Committed all sorts'of barbarities. The
number of prisoners carried away was
600, and It took 175 beasts of bur-Ton
to transport the silver and gold. The
prisoners were held for ransom un?

into siavery, and every cruelty Imagin?
able was used to make them confess

The IVert Panama,
for a year after this raid there
xvas no city of any size on the Pacific
Coast of the Isthmus. Then the Queen
of Spain decreed that Panama should
bo rebuilt, nnd a plan was made which
placed the city where It Is now. The
old site was much worse than the pres?
ent one, although the latter Is not
good. The landing nt old Panama was
bucn that ships oo?ld not come In at
low tide, and even to-day the large
steamers anchor at Hainan.
The building of the present Panama
was begun about 287 years ago. The
work was slow and the cost enormous.
It was estimated that ten million dol?
lars were spent upon the fortificBtIons,
A great deal of this went into the
walls which surrounded the city, some
of which nre still standing. These
walls were long building, and a story
Is told which states that the King
of Spain was once observed looking
out toward the west with a frown
on ills brow. Hereupon, one of the
knights asked him what ho saw.
The frown changed to a grim smile,
and the King said:
?'I am locking for the eolden walls
of Panama. They are costing so much
that we ought to see them even here

Another old historic point at Panama
Is where Balboa stood when he dis?
covered the Pacific. Some of the au?
thorities have picked out the spot.
Balboa had been at Port Harion. on
the Carrlbboan Sea, at the southern on.i
of tne Isthmus, und hart there made
a settlement. Including a churctt,
which Is said to he the first church
built on the American Continent.
While there tin- Indians told him many
stories of the gold tei be found farther
on. Cine of the chiefs, named Com
agro. cave him about elghty-thoitsnnd
dollara' worth of gold, and told mm
that they ate out of gold dishes. Ho
described a temple of solid gold and
offered to conduct Balboa to where it
This was the beginning of Balboa's
search for the South Sea, He had
:eni tiie word home to Spain, and in
return was given the title of Captain
Cenerel de la Antigua, and told to
make an expedition to find the gold.
It was on the 1st of September, ISKt.
that lie stnrted out with 190 white
men and n party of Indians.
Farther on he got other , Indian
cnides. and on the 8th of Septcmbol
he was told by an Indian chief that
he would see the great sea when fie
had passed over certain mountains
which were then in sight. This man
gave Hallen some gold ornaments,
which in- said came from the ocean.
The Discover}' of the Pacific.
Going onward, Halboa had to tight
his way through the country, and It
was not until the 'Ji*,th of September
at about 1 Oo'elock In the morning
that he reached tho heights f,"om
which lie saw the pacific. On this spot
lie put up a cross made of the trunk
of n tree and Wrote upon It the name
of the ruler of Spain, He then made
his way with his men dow.i to the
beach and waded out Into the water,
wiiere lie waved the banner of Spain
over the ocean and proclaimed that
It and all the lands on and about It
belonged to his King.
Balboa got a great dent of gold and
pearls 0 nthlS expedition. He was giv?
en one pearl Which weighed twenty
live earals. and which sold for $'.?.'eio,
and in his papers he says that peat IS
were so pi r.tlful ihut it me of ilia
Indian canoes lufd their oars set with
them He did noc find the temple o:
gold and an expedition was sent out
[dti to ieafeh for It.

tion which carried boats over,, the
Isthmus and there put Hum together
to explore the South seas Tney went
out part Hie Islands In Pan nil Vtav
and visited the peal Arenlpeiago,

sulted li. finds of great value, and
