TRUTH ABOUT STEAL
Of PANAMA ZONE
In a recent public statement, James
T. Du Bote, former American Minister
to Colombia, said In reply to Mr.
Roosevelt's assertion that "the people
of Panama were a unit in demanding
the revolution":
"I say, and can prove it, that a hand
ful of men, who were to be the direct
beneficiaries of the revolution, con
ceived it. and not the hundredth part
of the inhabitants of the Isthmus knew
of the revolt until an American officer,
in the uniform of the United States
Army, raised tho flag of the new re
public."
Every word and every syllable of
Mr. Du Hols' indictment is true. What
took place in Panama wns no more a
revolution than a train robbery is a
revolution. It was a sordid, cash reg
ister commercial conspiracy, backed
by the Rooseselt administration. The
revolution was bought and paid for.
Treason was purchased in the open
market, and the forces of the United
States government were employed to
enable the buyers and the bought to
get away with the loot.,
There is no other such shameful
chapter in the history of the United
States, and whoever reads the ghast
Jy narrative of this so-called revolu
tion will understand why it is im
possible to arbitrate the differences be
tween the United States and Colom
bia. The United States could not go
into court with such a case. It could
not permif this scandalous record to
be submitted to the scrutiny of any
legal tribunal. There could be only
one verdict, and that verdict would
stand forever against the American
government in the courts of interna
tional justice.
There is only one way to deal with
Colombia's grievances and the bitter
Latin-American hostility toward the
United States which were bred out
of the action of the Roosevelt admin
istration at Panama. That Is to set
tle the case out of court by the regu
lar processes of diplomatic negotia
tion. as Mr. Wilson and Mr. Bryan
have undertaken to do. This is the
policy that Senator Root inaugurated
when he was Mr. Roosevelt's Secre
tary of State. It is the policy that Mr.
Taft and Mr. Knox followed. If this
is "blackmail," as Mr. Roosevelt al
leges. then he and Mr. Root, as well as
Mr. Taft and Mr. Knox, were offering
to pay blackmail to Colombia. The
crime of blackmail hinges on the na
ture of the transaction, not on the1
amount of money to be paid.
When Mr. Roosevelt afterward
sought to settle the claims of Colom
bia against the United States he him
self knew that the record of what took
place at Panama could not stand the
tost of Judicial publicity and Judicial
scrutiny. Although ho has boasted
that he "took" Panama, ho has exert
ed every effort to suppress the true
story of the Panama "revolution." Not
only that, but ho has deliberately fal
sified the record, and when ho under
takes to brand Presldont Wilson and
Secretary Bryan as the accessories to
blackmail and national dishonor, ho
must face the facts. Whatever meas
ure of dishonor attaches to the Co
lombian treaty attaches to the man
whoso lawless ambition made the gov
ernment of tho United States a work
ing partner of the corrupt Panama Ca
nal lobby In its desperate battle for
$40,000,000 of American money.?New

Before leaving California for a two weeks' visit in Juneau I had a piece of land that I own at Palermo subdivided into 10 acre tracts and propose to offer these small farms while I
am in Juneau at wholesale prices, or in other words you can secure 10 acres at the same price pej- acre you would have to pay for 1000 acres or more. This section of California is in
what is known as the "proven Orange and Olive belt" where the best Olives and the earliest and best Oranges in the State are grown. Oranges are marketed from this section from
six weeks to two months earlier than the Southern California district, thus bringing the best prices.
Crops are never bothered by frosts as they are in the South. The first Orange tree ever planted in California is in this district and is still bearing fruit, and standing as a monument
to the adaptability of Butte County soil and climate to the growth of Citrus Fruits. You can grow almost anything here and it is easier to tell you what you can not grow than what
you can. Cut out Pineapple, Cocoanuts and Bananas and you will about have the list. The property I am offering is located at Palermo, Butte County, and is V\ mile from the W est
ern Pacific Railroad, one mile from the Southern Pacific Station and three miles from the Northern Electric, thus affording the best of transportation facilities.
The land is compartively level and is ready for the plow; no rocks, stumps or brush on the land. There is an Olive grove directly across the road from the property that is worth
today $1,000 or more per acre. There is plenty of water for irrigation.
Good school on corner opposite tract. In fact there are so many advantages possessed by this tract and locality that it is impossible to enumerate them here.
As stated above I propose to sell these "Small Farms" at Wholesale Prices and give the purchaser the benefits of all commissions which are usually paid to agents. I own the prop
erty and it is all paid for as the abstract which I have with me will show. Furthermore I want some of my buyers to see the property so that they can tell people just what a bargain
they got, and will give to the first five persons purchasing tracts, a round trip ticket, including berth and meals (by steamer) to San Francisco and return which can be used at any
time within one year. For reference as to my reliability I will refer you to any reputable business man in Juneau, Seattle or San Francisco. This is an exceptional offei and one
that will net you great returns. Buy a tract for your boy or girl and let it lay for five years as an investment. Land not as good as this is today selling in Southern California for from
$500 to $600 per acre. I have only a limited number of tracts for sale. PRICE $100 PER ACRE. TERMS: $35 PER ACRE DOWN, ^
Balance in three equal payments, with privilege of paying off indebtedness any time before due. Interest 6%. FIVE PERCENT DISCOUNT FOR CASH.
