, President ' Roosevelt ' -was; subjected
to wide criticism for this deal, but of
ail bis actions In connection with' the
canal It was one of tbe iset. With
out regard to who got the money; It in
disputably Is true to aiiy oue who has.
v Lslted the canal that the United,
States got a dollar In value for every
dollar. It paid the Freu'ch : company.
As late as 1911 .Colonel. Goetbals' ap
pointed a com mlttee. headed by J. ' B.
Bishop, secretary of . the commission,
to Invoice the French purchase, and
It . reported the value -of , French ex
cavation useful to the American plan
of canal, the mechanical equipment
buildings and .engineering records to
be $42,709,820. or nearly $3,00000
more than was paid. ' At - the same
time It was a good sale for the Frenjch
company, because the United States
was the only prospective buyer. I
The Item of largest (value, to the
United States as estimated itf the. re
port was tbe-excavatioa of 29.908.000
cubic, yards, valued at $23894a
This mainly was in the Culebra cut
Next In importance was, the Panama
railroad and subsidiary trackage in the
canal zone, and the remainder was for
quarters. ; hospitals : 'storehouses.' ma
chine shops.' canal ' equipment steam-hlpg,.Iana'ej&-
; -lS'J rV.'
Much of , the mechanical equipment
and whole tillages of houses ufd by
the French employees were (tjiered
with a dense growth of Jungle 'after
years of Idleness, but the machinery
had been oiled and painted carefully
lfore abandonment and so .&a f ; pre
served In good condition wh&t r tke
Americans came. Tlad not the Freoch
buildings bwn available and capable
of beiug speIIly repaired for usVTihe
early American employees would have
suffered more hardships than they did.
Of these buildings the Americans re
paired awl used 1JVKT. their value be
ing estimated at $l.S79.203m ;
Construction work, was carried'.'qn
the; first year of American occupation
largely with old French . equipment
That part of the equipment which
could not be utilized was used as bal
last on the Panama Steamship' liners
to the exteut of 27.000 tons and sold
as wrap on the New York market, and
In 1911 the Chicago House Wrecking
company bid lu the remainder for the
lump um of $21.".00O. !
In the sale the United States re
reived JS.SS3 shares of the capital

iU-lt required stout hearts uot to quail
before the isthmus of. 1904." Net only
the tradi.tloual unheelthrulness, but the'
wretched condition of the railroad aft
er fifty years of noncompetition, the
long , distance from the base of sup
plies, the miserable living accommoda
tions In Colon and Panama, where
there were no sewers, no w&ter and
un paved utreets. Into which were
thrown all refuse ami garbage, and the
vexatious red tape that surrounded all
government enterprises, made a situa
tion that weaklings no sooner touched
than they returned precipitately to the
United States.
Tb take care of the Increasing num
beri of workers that every ship was
bringing to the canal soue was the
most pressing problem. The Interest
of the whole world had been stimu
lated by the rejuvenation of the canal
project by the Americans, with the re
sult that restless spirits . every where
began bending their steps toward Pan
ama.. Men of excellent character In
the United States also came, attracted
by the pay and the romantic nature of
the undertaking, -:-
The bouses left by the French were
inhabited by uattves or burled in the
Jungle growth.- The necessarily wero
run down, but could be made habitable
once the carpenters and lumber to do
the work were at hand. These, how
ever! like everything else. were"2JX30.
rniJes away with a spider web of red
tape over them that paralyzed speedy
movement. - In his year of service Mr.
"WnllsV-e repaired 337 of these bouses
and built forty-eight new. ones still
leaving the problem ' of housing em
ployees unsolved. During that time
more tbau 0.000 worker came to the
canal zone, but the migration back to
the United States or adjacent Islands
and countries was heavy.
-Colonel Gorgas had urged the prompt
aanltatlou of Colon and Panama, and
early in the American occupation the
construction- of sewers.' waterworks
aud paved streets was begun; The
Americans advanced 'the money : for
these Improvements on a plain of taxes
that at the end of fifty years from
their completion will repay the United
States and turn them over to the re
spective cities. v ' -
? One of the dredges left by the
.French 'was 'found to beafter twenty
years. In excellent couditlon and . was
ruttOj-work in Colon harbor. The
twenty, miles of track In the Culebra '
cut occasioned derailments and wrecks
with exasperating frequency .until re
laid with heavier rallsv aud this mile-'
age was Increased, by an addition of
fifteen miles during the first year . Ma
chine shops existed at- Colon. Mata
chin and Gorgoua. where, when the
uug!o- -had beeur.rut away, facilities7
tvere Vfound ' for - repairing machinery

..Mr. - Wallace made his headquarters '
Trl Pauama ln a buIMlng'that formerly v
had been occupied by the French dl-
.rector geueral. "The disbursing oflcer.
.sanitary oaicer. 'eugineerlng parties,
and ( clerical forces were centered la
Ihmama. but.a site for an American
administrative- tqwn .was selected at
the f oof of Ancon bill, Just outside of
iPanama ; "C-! ""- - .-'
Frenc h towns at Culebra Empire and
Gorgona were rehabilitated and sys
tems of sewers and waterworks begun.
Tsere- were settlements at Matacbln.
pas 6 bis po and Colon. Accommoda
tions were of the crudest description.
Powder boxes served for morris chairs,
furniture was scanty and of ancient
Cdjlga,. tropical Insects made life a mls
lr.rserrants were; worse than Indlf
f efe6t.-there were no baths, no running
water in the bouses, and that which
was used sometimes was caught from
roofs on which the buzzards roosted,
the native foods bad to be eaten, and
ice was a luxury that only occasional
ly could be obtained from the railroad
Ice factory at Colon. -
Each ship that brought workers to
the canal zone Invariably carried the
same or others back Yet a percentage
stuck and accepted , the undesirable
conditions gracefully. A few had vK
ilon enough to see that our great gov
ernment would rectify everything if
only given time. Others realized that
the canal never would be "built If the
workers expected soft condition right
at the start and they -.accepted, their
sacrifices of 'comfort as a national ne
cessity, t- - '

speed toward the station, where the
train that would run them to town In
a few minutes was steaming ready to
start. -As they reached the stitlon
