THE NEW REPUBLIC
Panama Again lirought Into Ijlme
Light by Qnarrel of Canal
HAS MADE LITTLE PROGRESS
Modern Sanitation Expected to Work
Wonders in the Next
New York. Sept. 2S The breaking
out of a quarrel between Minister
Barrett and Rear Admiral Walker,
chairman of the Isthmian canal com
mission, as to the conduct of affair?
in the canal zone has called atten
tion once more to what Consul Gudger
magniloquently calls in a report to the
state department "the youngest mem
ber in the galaxy of nations."
In the interval since Panama drop
ped out of sight the process of making
a government has gone forward. The
new nation has a constitution much
like nui3, a president, three vice-presidents
and a judiciary. It has proven
provinces, whoi-.e names and capitals
are as follows:
I Jocas del Toro
. Docas del Toro
In each of the provinces there is a
governor "alcaide" together with
other necessary officials.
Our Itnilroiul Aitiim iMlbniUM.
Panama has one railroad straight
across the isthmus from Panama to
Colon. It cost only 7.5)!' ' and was
owned by the French company until
Uncle Sam bought S4-35ths of the
Panama levies duties of 15 per cent
upon ordinary drygoods and groceries
and much higher upon liquors.
The country, little as it looks upon
the map. has the area of Maine and
the population of the District of Col
umbia. Its people are nearly all col
ored or mestizo: 40,000 of them are
Jamaicans, in color black and by al
legiance British subjects. There are
The interior. Mr. Oudger says, ir
"practically in the same state in which
it was when Columbus discovered the
Death Hnlr Knoniioui.
The death rate of Panama is about
f.4 against Loudon's 17 and New York's
of less than 19 two years ago.
Dnmig the construction of the Pan
ama railroad and when work was be
ing pushed by the French canal com
pany the laborers were badly housed,
poorly fed and exposed to inclement
weather. No wonder the record was
made that for each cross-tie in the
Panama railroad the life of one of.
those who aided in its construction
With good, comfortable quarters,
pure water, constant warfare on the
mosquitoes, abundance of healthy food
and enforcement of strict sanitary
measures, the death rate will undoubt
edly be greatly reduced.
In Panama and Colon the tempera
ture is approximately the same, and
ranges from about Cf degrees to
degrees Fahrenheit; the average is
perhaps So degrees. The nights are,
as a rule, cool and pleasant. The
rainfall of Colon is from 82 to 155
inches, the average being about 123
inches three times as much as in
New York. In Panama the rainfall
is from fi7 to 00 inches, the average
being 70 inches.
The commission is preparing for
f-'ekness. Two large hospitals will be
constructed one in Panama and the
other in Colon and stretching across
the zone will be some eighteen others.
Panama. Colon and the entire zone will
have fresh, pure, water.

Damages $4,000 Barn of Judge Emery
Lightning struck the big barn of
Judge Emery C. Graves at. Geneseo
yesterday and created considerable ex
citement in the vicinity for a time. The
bolt struck the large cupola, tearing it
away. Entering the barn, it apparent
ly exploded, breaking all the windows
and splintering timbers. Considerable
damage was done the barn, which was
one of the best in the city, having cost
about. $4,000. No horses were in the
barn. The electric light wires carried
the lightning from the barn to the res
idence, where lights were burned out
ami other minor damage done. Mrs.
Graves, who was alone in the house,
distinctly felt the shock.
