Tho presidential elections in the republic of Panama would have pre cipitated a revolution if it had not been for the strong hand of the gov ernment at Washington. The United States told Panama, in effect, that the ambitions of politicians and the issues of petty lnil questions would be permitted to endanger tnc not enormous enterprise which the Amer ican nation has undertaken on the isthmus. The United States told Panama that the elections must lie fairly conducted, and the result would be upheld. A revolution might not work great injury to the Repub lic of Panama, but it certainly would ! huve oen a disaster to the United ! States and the canal project. As a result of .the firm attitude : taken by the Washington govern ! mont, the Conservative party, now ! in power, has submitted to the will jof the people as expressed In the I municipal elections in June, and the Uuly elections have but to confirm ithe selection . of Domingo Obaldia, 'the Lileral 'candidate for president. :A wholesome respect for American ! warships and American marines will insure a peaceful transfer of the ad- ministration from one party to the 'other a thing that is rarely accomp lished In the smaller Latin-American ! countries without trouble. ! The' American government did not take part in the campaign by es Tousing the Tause of one- party or the other. It merely declared that it would see to it that there was a free ballot and a fair count, let the results be what they might. Panama has two political parties, the Conser vatives and the Liberals. The issues between them are hazy, the princi ples which differentiate them are mythical. As a matter" of fact the only practical difference Is that which always exists between the "Ins" and the "Outs," and they stand for little else than the organ ized expression of a desire to control the treasury. The Liberals, it is true, stand- for the doctrine of absolute di vorce of church from state, but that is no longer a living Issue. There is no live question of foreign or In ternational policy at stake. The LIlK-rals have been the "Outs," but their victory this summer will soon put them In power. Their lead- -er, Senor Obaldia, will he president. If he Is grateful he will be nuite j friendly to American interests. While i the Americans did not esiouse his cause, the administration of Presi dent Amador was taking such vio- ent steps to Insure the election of the Conservative candidate, Richardo Arias, that only an American de- l mand for fair elections cnuM secure the rights of the Liberals at the polls. Last winter President Amador took a vacation trip to Europe and the states. Before he left he gave out a statement in which he said that he was going to be neu tral In the coming campaign. His natural course would have been to : support Obaldia. Rut when he came back to the isthmus he began secret- . ly to give aid and encouragement to Arias. Gradually the Liberals learn ed of his political treachery and went to the officials of the United States on the isthmus with a pro test. The matter was looked into and the representations of the Lib erals were found to be correct. In timidation, treachery, and every sort of poitical trick possible to prevent the registration- of voters of the op position had been resorted to. The Conservatives were proving them selves politicians at whose feet the worst corruptionists of the United States might sit and learn. At this juncture Jo C. S. Clack burn, governor of the Canal Zone, went to the administration leaders I headed by President Amador, and told them that every voter must I 1 ON LITTLE BOY His Hands were a Solid Mass, and . Disease Spread All Over His Body In Four Days the Child was Entirely Cured Mother Strongly RECOMMENDS CUTICURA SOAP AND OINTMENT "One day we noticed that our little boy was ail broken out with itching ores. We first noticed it on his little hands. His hands were not as bad then, and we didn't think anything serious would result. But the next day we heard of the C'uticura Remedies being so good for itching sores, etc., that I thought I would get them. By this time the disease had spread all over his body, and his hands were nothing but a solid maaa of this itching disease. I went to the drug store and purchased a box of C'uticura Soap and one box of Cuticura Ointment, and that night I stripped my little boy and took the Cuticura Soap and lukewarm water and washed him well. Then I dried him with a soft bath towel, and took the Cuticura Ointment and rublied him thoroughly with it. I did this every evening before I put him to bed and in three or four nights he was entirely cured. You have my permission to publish this because anylxdy who suf fered as my baby did ought to know of the Cuticura Remedies. I will surely and gladly recommend the Cuticura Remedies, for they are a godsend to all suffering with skin diseases. Mrs. Frank Donahue, 208 Fremont St., Kokomo, lad., Sept. 16, 1907.'' TODAY?

This in turn, he told them, could not be had unless there were fair elections. The administration leaders replied tlmt even if many Liberals hud been denied the privilege of registration there was no remedy for it after the fact. They declared that the regis tration period had closed by law and that nothing could now be done to reopen the books. To this Governor Blackburn answered that if there was a bad law on the statute books of the republic it was either their fault or their misfortune. He told them plainly that the United States would insist on a ' fair election, and" that it was certainly up to them to find some means of seeing that there was a fair election. Negotiations were on for several weeks, and fi nally lYesident Amador yielded on a few immaterial points. Patience ceased to be a virtue with Governor Blackburn and he told the Conserva tive leaders that there could be no monkey business In this matter, that the United States was only asking that a fair election be held and that there would be no recession, from that demand. He said a dishonest election meant a revolution, and that a revolution meant the disorganization of the ca nal force, and probably the destruc tion of millions of dollars worth of American property, to say nothing of the delay in completing the canal. "With the yellow fever raging in Colon and the bubonic plague run ning riot in Panama," he told them, "our force would crouch In the in terior and wait until the storm blew over. But with shooting going on in Panama, with., the opportunities for license and loot that would fol low, there would be no keeping them out of it. The force would be com pletely disorganized, and irreparable harm would be done to the whole canal project." Governor Blackburn added that he could not speak with authority as to what would happen, but that he believed there, would be several bat tleships in the harbors of the Isth mus about that time, and that the marines' stationed at Camp Elliot would be made ready to protect the American interests against any out break. Under these somewhat stren uous representations the Panamanians agreed that the Americans could see that the elections were fairly con ducted. American agents were sent to the various voting places through out the isthmus to inspect conditions and to report to the Canal Zone government. Steps were taken by the Panamanian administration to in sure fair elections-, so far as oppor tunity to vote is concerned. There-are other elements than that In the free expression of the peo ple's will. For instance, the pro vince of Colon had for Its governor Porfirio Melendez. He issued a state ment to the officals under him in which he said that every voter in the province should be afforded the opportunity to register his individ ual will in the coining election, and that while he favored the' election of Obaldia, the Liberal candidate, he wanted a fair election. As soon as the administration got hold of this statement, off went the official head of Governor Melendez. President Amador sent for Melendez first, and told him that he must sacrifice all personal considerations and that he must support Arias. When Melen dez refused to recant, Amador told him he would give him a three month's vacation. This Melendez also turned down. It was then that his office was taken from him nnd given to a supporter of Arias. The same thing happened to the governors of the provinces of Chiriqui and Code.

In oui own .country we have abun dant opportunity to understand and appreciate the advantages of the party in power, in a legitimate fash ion. But in Panama the advantage is a hundred times greater. The tot.d revenues of the government are about $2,500,000. The republic, thanks to the U. S. for the ten mil lion dollars paid for Panama's inter ests in the canal, is out of debt. The United States has put up the money for the public improvements that have been made in Panama and Colon therefore, the Panamanian adminis tration can spend nearly the whole of the governmental receipts on of fices for its friends. Taking them by nnd large, tho Panamanians are rather a sorry lot. They are revolutionists by habit, and are industrious in no other pursuit. Their political leaders look to the force of arms as the sustaining prin ciple of parties and .governments. The respect for law and legal insti tutions which causes Americans to peacefully submit to political de feats is incomprehensible to them. The only argument Governor Black burn could advance in favor of fair elections which had any force upon the administration leaders was the implied threat that battleships and marines would back up the American position. That was argument they could appreciate. The Panamanian is born with a natural hankering for a political job. With all the great opportunities for employment afforded by the canal project, there are only a few dozen natives on the pay roll of the canal force, and they have nice easy Jobs. The proud position of a police patrol man appeals to the Panamanian pat riots soul. He will take it even with the restruction that he must not arrest an American except in un usual cases. But when it comes to real work" he is not an applicant for a job. The policy of the American govern ment in tho Onn.il Zone is to be very ! liberal with the Panama govern ment and the Panmanians. But there is a distinct line of demarca tion between liberality and the con cession of unwaranted favors. While every reasonable request is granted, the American government has given the Panamanians to understand that it will not countenance anything which will in the slightest degree' interfere with the work of digging the canal." In the eelction matter, the United States has demonstrated to the people of Panama that it will not permit isthmian politics to delay or endanger the Isthmian canal. MARSHAL IS FIRM SO IS 1 ME BOARD It Is Probable That the Federal Offices Will Be Moved Out of the Court House. Unless somebody backs down the offices of the clerk of the supreme court and other offices of tho fuUeral government, the quarters for whioh are provided by the government will be moved out of the court house. United States Marshal Daniels ar rived in town yesterday and had a further conference with the board of supervisors with reference to the order of the board increasing the rent of federal quarters in the court house from ?!00 to $1100 a year. The mar shal, 'whose business it is to arrange for such quarters had previously de clined to meet the raise, though it had been recommended by Chief Justice Kent. Later it was understood that the marshall would refer the matter to the department of justice without recommendation. But it appears that he holds his original position and he told the members of the board-yesterdays that he would not stand the raise. In the course of the afternoon he looked over the O'Neill building where the offices of the marshal were lo cated before their removal to Tucson, but no statement was made regarding his purpose to locate the federal of fices there. " : ' The members of the board are just as firm in their position not to rent the rooms in the court house at the former figure for another year. The county has expended $100 for carpets and other improvements at the re quest of federal officials during the last year and they want to see some of the money, beginning to come back. Frank J.
