We are now spending oar an

and excellent drinking water are
some of the feat urea that make
this place an ideal health resort,

there is little variation in crop
Banannas constitute the Etavle
crop of the land on the Atlantic
side and coffee and potatoes on
land above 3,000 feet, A great
mny Americans are engaged in
the culture of these products.
Some bavo done well raiding ba

with t'.ie United Fruit Co. for the

and sometimes profitable. Ow

there is litile profit in raising it
Another class of Americans
are prospectors who have drifted
along the Rock7 mountains to
this country following the ever
receding phantom. When young
they fro usually men of strong
physique which finally succumbs
to hard work and privations but
hope remains till death.
A presidential elwction has re
cently been held in this country.
There yet remains evidences of
the bitter strife which character
izes elections in these countries.
Two parties brought out candi
dates. The party known as the
Republican party whose policy
is against foreigners nominated
Ilicardo Jimenez; tho candidate
of tho Civil party was Yglesias
whose policy is favorable to for
eigners, lhe latter had the sup
port of the Union Fmit Co. and
the railroad but the had the form
er support of the people and he
was elected by a tremendous ma
jority. It appears to one passing
through the country that Jimen
ez had the support of all the tow
ers and settlements except Port
Ginon and its surroundings for
we see posters on whicb. is print

Tho Coat a Rieatis are poor

thre will bo serious trouble.
It isclaiinnd that the successful
candidate is very unfavorable to
the Fruit Co. the railroad and
fou'ignors generally and a vigor
ous anti-freign policy will great
ly retard the developutnent of
the country. Tho past develop

Tho next genera! assembly of
Missouri will redistriet the state.
It is the iutentiou of the Repub
licans to make a strong cam
paign and secure control of beth
houses of the legislature in
order that they m ay do away
with the present dirgracefui
gerrymander and give the
people of the state a fair and
square deal. While the Demo
crats have been in control of
matteia for years they have seen
to it that the state was always
so redistricted that very heavy
Republican majorities wore
thrown into a few districts, re
gardless of the intent of the law,
and other Republieans section
thrown in with a large number
of light Democratic majorities .
Through this discreditable and
dishonest method the legislators
and Missouri' representation in
coneress have bon largely Dem
ocratic. Last' year the ttat
gave a very fair Republican
majority, yet at tho same tim
the senate was about two to one
Democratic. 11m onlv fair ano
honest way to redistrict the
statfl is to make the districts as
the law contemplates. Then if
the Democrats carry tho stats
they will probably have a
majority in the legislature. It
should be the same way with the
Republicans. The peopls of
Missouri realise the situation and
how tht politics of the state have
been manipulated ia tha inter
ests of gang for ninny years.
This is also one of the reason so
many are voting the Republican
ticket at each election. The
average nihil the fctatu ovr
wants only what ho can honestly
and justly claim: And the
majority favor a cquaro deal.
And because they advi calrt a
square deal for every citiii of
Minsouri tho Republican party
has ben able to recluim Mis
souri from the solid south.
