ORJDOON Captured by the Ideal climate of southern Idaho and the bright pros pects for the future, having been con vinced after personal Investigation that the Gem state Is deatlned to be one of the greatest in the northwest, C. H. Manning, a well known govern ment employe 'assigned to special work In Panama canal zone, has been made so enthusiastic a convert that he sent In his resignation to the de partment at Washington last week as an officer In the department of la bor and subsistence, to be effective at once and has selected as his future home, Shoshone, suys the Boise Cap Hal News. He has also purchased a farm on the north sido Twin Falls tract where lie will lay the foundations for a val uable orchard. Mr. Manning has come back to nature's own and his present course in Mfe was Incidentally changed by a chance visit to this part of the state while on a short vacation He was so pleased with what he saw that his resignation was soon speed Ing to Washington before even his vacation was finished. Mr. Manning Is one of the most re cent arrivals from the Isthmus of Panama and he talks very interest ingiy of the great work which Is be Ing done there In the separation of North and South America by the United States in Its connection of the two oceans by the narrow canal across the Isthmus. Being an employe of the govern mem, ana naving supervision over hundreds of men In the canal zone Mr. Manning understands the sltua tlon well. When Interviewed by representative of the Capital New about the great engineering feat be ing accomplished at Panama, Mr, Manning said: Tells of the Canal. comparatively few people under sttyid or appreciate the great magni tude of the Panama canal. It Is cer talnly a wonderful work. In conned tlon with the department of labor and subsistence I spent the past two years at the canal zone and was In a post tlon to become very familiar with the great work which Is being carried on at the Isthmus by the United States. "Our department takes charge of furnishing quarters on the canal as well as securing additional ones from all over the country; their re ceptlon at Panama and installation In quarters. There are numerous other duties which the present management and system of providing for the men employed In the zone as well as the general plans followed towards dig. glng the canal Uncle Sam has perfect ed one of the greatest working ma cnines of human beings which this world has ever seen. "The result Is that the dirt Is fil ing In the canal trench and the mam moth crew Is doing everything to wards perfecting this waterway where ocean meets ocean. o less man 30,000 men are at work on the canal. Of this number 5500 are Americans, 500 Europeans and the balance natives of the West Indies. This mammoth crew has to be provided for every day In the year. The srovernment nilnnto.t r. ulation buildings, furnishing, etc.. for them and today they are housed as comrortable as any one would care to be. The conditions have been made sanitary so that the death rate has Decome normal in the zone region. .very nouse Is furnished with sewerage, baths, etc., and Ice Is de livered them Just the same as it is at your doorstep here. Wide norehos keep out the summer pests and while me uimospnere Is very warm, full of humidity and sultry the men fare very well. me government lays down the provision that every employe shall work 10 months of the year and then havo a vacation of six weeks with pay during which time they must leave the Isthmus and go to some other country. The change has Its PffPnt anu neips the men to stand the work. ah or the heavy work Is done by the West Indians. The Americans hold down the carpenters, mechanics, fore- mansnip, engineering and other Im portant positions. "When I tell you that during; the month of April last 3,250,000 cubic yards of dirt were taken out of the canal you would hardly understand the great amount this Involves. The record during May of this year fell a little below this, but the engineer in charge of the canal are working to make the record of 4,000.000 cubic yards a month. That Is movlna- a wonderful amount of earth. 'Double railroad tracks are ooerat. ed along the entire distance of the canal so far constructed and the dirt Is taken away from the scene of ac tivity to the lower ground where it Is used to fill In. Great steam shovels tear out six wagon loads at a spoon ful and dump it Into cars which are In waiting. When a tralnload Is fill ed powerful engines rush the cars to the end pf the line for dumpage. Complete in Eight Tears. "It is estimated that the Panama canal will be completed In either 1915 or 1917. At the present time the great Calubrla cut Is the knotty problem which must . be solved by engineers. Th,e canal after leading from the At lantic coast strikes this mountain and It Is now being cut in two.i It Is ad mitted by experts to be an unknown quantity. No one can say when the great cut will be made through it. The cut Is 400 feet deep. They are now down 285 feet with still 115 to go. It Is three miles through and Is the only really difficult problem yet to be solv ed In the great ditch. Trouble has been experienced in this cut with the sides of the mountain caving in and filling. the canal. Machinery Thrown Away. "One remarkable thing ;ebout the canal zone Is the great amount of ma chinery which the French spent mil Hons of dollars on and later abandon- Li ed along the route of the canal. Do you .know that sections of the town of Cristobal, located on the Atlantic side of the canal, Is built over re claimed lands In which millions of dollars worth of machinery, purchas ed by the French to be used on the canal and which, was never unpack ed, was thrown Into these lowlands and used with dirt to reclaim the land? That Is an actual fact. No one has ever taken the trouble to take out this machinery and there It remains today with houses built over It, in the same boxes In which It was shipped from France. The French had the Ight Idea of the canal route and It Is safe to say that they worked over every foot of the ground which the Americans are now covering. Along this route machinery of all kinds and descriptions still remains standing as a memory of the past. The French could never have taken care of the dirt to be hauled out of the canal with the machinery they had. As many as 80 steam engines are to be seen along the route In a body aban doned and left to rot. Some of these small engines have been brought into use by our country, but they are not large enough to haul the loads which are now being hauled. The waste along this line which greets one In the canal zone Is astonishing. COAL MINING IN OKKGON LAST YEAR. The total production of coal in Ore gon in 1307 was 70,981 snort tons, having a spot value of $166,304, says the United States geological survey report. The Coos bay field Is the only pro ductive field In Oregon. It Is situat ed In the southwestern part of the state. In Coos county, and occupies a total area of about 250 square miles, its length north and south being about 30 miles and Its maximum breadth at the middle about 11 miles. Among the other coal fields that have been prospected In the state are the Upper Nehalem field, in Columbia county; the Lower Nehalem field, In Clatsop and Tillamook counties; the Taqulna field, in Lincoln county; the Eckley and Shasta Costa fields, in Curry county; the Eden field, in Coos county, and the Rogue river valley field, in Jackson county all west of the Cascade range. None of these fields have been developed to the point .of production. Another field lies in the basin of John Day river, east of the Cascade range, but little Is known concerning It All the fields west of the range, except the Coos bay, are of rather small area, the largest being the Up per Nehalem, which has an area of less than 20 square miles. The coal of all these fields Is llg- nltlc. Its transportation Is confined exclusively to Coos bay and the Pa cific ocean, and San Francisco is the principal market. The Coos bay field Is divided by Its structure Into six portions four basins and two arches. The basins are known as the Newport, the Beaver Slough, the Coquille and the South Slough, and are separated by Westport and Pulaski arches. As practically all of the product from Coos bay has been shipped by water to San Francisco, the substltu tlon of oil for coal in most of the manufacturing Industries of that city has cut off a considerable portion of the market for this coal. The effect on Oregon's production Is shown In a decrease from 109,611 tons In 1905 to 76,731 In 1906 and to 70,901 In 1907. The decrease in value of the 1907 product was even more pro nounced, for while the production howed a decrease of 8,750 tons, or 10.97 per cent, the value declined 46,034, or 21.68 per cent. The av erage price per ton declined from J2.66 In 1906 to 12.34 In 1907. GOVERNOR HUGHES WILL HUN AGAIN If Pnrty Wants Him, New York's Ex wmlve Will Have the Office. The announcement of Governor Hughes that lie would accept the nomination for governor If his party wanted him to again be a-candidate was not expected In political circles. The opinion was generally expressed that no opposition would be made to renomlnatlon If a well defined sentl ment developed demanding It. Secretary Loeb at Oyster Bay said that he would convey the announce ment of Governor Hughes to Presl dent Roosevelt Several of those ac tive In the party's direction claim to have Information that the presi dent desired Governor Hughes to run again, in the belief that it would strengthen the ticket by attracting the- independent vote. State Chairman Timothy L. Wood ruff Is at his summer home at Kemn Kllleare In the Adirondack, where he expects to confer with the state lead ers on the gubernatorial situation In few days. Indiana Hunt for Treasurer. Last night Chief Red Thunder, of the Nez Perce Indians, accompanied by T. B. Early; returned to the city, and left this morning for the Wallowa country. It will be remembered by Observer readers that these two men passed through La Grande a couple of months ago, bound for the same district, but were unable to accom plish their errand, whatever It was, on account of the depth of the snow. Although denied ty Mr. Early, It Is rumored that they are In search of a fabulous lost mine, the locality of which Is only known by Red Thun der, having descended to him through his father who was a brother of the famous Chief Joseph. La Grande Observe. "Could you bring yourself to live in a flat on $20 a week?" "I could, Harold," answered the pampered yet unspoiled darllnar. "But do not know Just how It would suit my French maid.
