the attention of both foot ball teams and
the thousands In the other stands, and
before the last section had entirely col

victim of yellow fever was taken from a
house to fumigate that house and the
two houses next, because the habit of the
mosiiulto Indicated that it did not depart
far from the plaoe of Its birth. It seems
that tha mosquito that acquires and com
municates the yellow fever virus Is a fe
male, and this only during her period of
gestation. She dies at the end of ninety
days, and It is not known that the de.
scendants . continue to carry the poison.
These limitations sre .what ' prevent the
spread, of the disease. .
When Judge Maon arrived upon tha
Isthmus ho found Dr. Gorgas battling man
fully against the yellow fever, tbut the
cases seemed to be Increasing. Judge
Magoon -conceived the Idea that the fumfc.
gatlon which had been confined to two or
three houses might well be extended to
all the hounes In Panama, and at consider
able expense and after procuring a large
amount of material, every house in Pan
sma was fumigated once every two weeks.
To secure increased vigilance and popular
assistance he employed all the-respectable
Panamanian physicians of Panama as in
spectors of the districts of that city at
annual salaries of $1,200 a year. He also
offered $o0 reward for the discovery of
any case of yellow fever not reported. By
methods of this kind the native apathy,
usually so great an obstacle to successful
sanitation In Spanish countries, was neu
tralised. Suffocating? the Insects.
The plan of fumigation Is as follows:
Strips of paper are placed across the win
dows, which ordinarily have no glass or
any netting in them, and then either by
the fumes of the sulphur or pyrethrum
every nook and orannv of .k-

reduced to a point where during the last
month only three cases. were reported, not
one of these among canal employes, and
all originating many miles from tha canal
line. The efforts to subdue the fever in
stead of being relaxed are being continued.
Bquare miles of woven wire netting with
Interstices so small as to prevent the en
trance of mosquitoes are spread about tha
piaxzas or the .house of every American
or foreigner who comes to live under the
auspices of the canal commission in the
Isthmus. The windows inside are also
screened, and then mosquito bars-on tba
beds are used as a third precaution.

Of lJ,onj meu, the percentage of illness was
less than Ha per thousand. In June the
cases of yellow fever were sixty-one and
nineteen deaths. In July theca were thirty

there were nine cases, and in October but
three. The percentage of deaths among all
is about U and among Americans about 10.
The work of furnishing water, of In

not now in the sanitation department, but

the commission has taken over the -general
hospital of Panama and has accepted
$SO,000 Mexican, a fund which had been
voted by Panama for Its Improvement, and
Is now completely rebuilding it. It has
alsb taken care of the insane and lepers
of Panama, charging a certain rate per
day. It exercises by right of law and by
agreement complete quarantine jurisdic
tion over Panama. Colon and the isthmian
canal strip, and this quarantine Is a di
vision of the sanitation bureau under Gov
ernor Magoon and Colonel Gorgas.
Not only has It been found possible to
accomplish much by the draining of swamps
by surface drainage, or turning of stag
nant pools into running water, the cutting
of gutters and the flushing from reservoirs,
but the attention of the chief engineer has
also been directed to filling up with the
spoil from excavation made In construction
swamps and lowlands which now generate
disease. '1 he evidences of successful war
ngalnst malaria, are not so easy to produce
as those of the defeat of yellow fever.
One reason Is that malaria Is so much
harder to combat than is yellow fever.
Victims, of Yellow Jack.
To begin with, yellow fever finds its
victims only among those who are not
residents of the tropical euet towns, so
at least the statistics seem to show. Euro
peans and Americans Irom the temperate
xone, and- Colombians coming from the
hills and mountains, are all subjects of
yellow fever, but generally the blacks
from Jamaica and Trinidad, from the
islands or the Caribbean sea, and the Pana
manians themselves, are Immune. The lield
for attack by yellow, fever, thertforo, is
very much limited. Not so. however, with
malaria. An examination for experimental
purposes, and repeated at various times
under the direction of Colonel Gorgas,
shows that at least 70 per cent of people
picked up at random In tie isthmus have
the malarial microbe. I am glad to say
that since our occupation the malaria has
not guiierally taken on the malignant form
of the days of the railroad and French
canal construction, but Is rather mild.

Mr. Euge.n Tlncanxar, chief engineer of the
Kiel canal, appointed by the German gov
ernment; Mr. B. Quellennec, the consult
ing engineer of, the Suet canal, and Mr.
G. W. Welcker, appointed by the Nether
lands government. The board Is presided
over by Major General George W. Davis
of the United States army, a gentleman of
long experience In engineering and works
of construction. The great question before
the board is. Shall the canal be a sea-level
or a lock canal? If it Is to be a lock canal,
as recommend d by the Walker commission.
I think the president may build the canal
safely on the money appropriated without
consulting congress further as to the type.
If It la to be a sea-level canal, the ques
tion. It s-ems to me, for reasons already
stated, should be left to congress.
There are various nlnna Mr. Rnneaii-
Varllla produces a plan by which he would
construct a locg canal, tne highest lock
at 170 feet, and then would make pro
vision for the ultimate reduction of this
canal to a sea level. Another. Mr. Bates,
nresents a plan for making, by dams,
two great lakes at the termini of the canal
and with a comparatively low l'ck a canal
between. I shall not stop to discuss these
various plans, because I am neither com
petent nor have I time to do so. It will
be sufflaient to discuss them when the
advisory boaiM shall have returned its
Judgment, when the commission shall have
reported and when the matter is before
the president for decision.
Opposition from RaJl roads.
One of the great obstacles to success In
building the canal Is the opposition of
powertul persons and interests to lis con
struction. Borne of this opposition comes
from those who are sincerely convinced
that the Panama route is not a practic
able route, and that there are other and
easier routes to be preferred. It Is not
to be expected that owners and managers
of great transcontinental lines should be
come enthusiastic over an enterprise which.
If carried to completion, must certainly
affect the rates of freight between the
Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Even now
there Is some, question as to whether low
rates and equality of service to all on the
Panama rail mad may not reduce trans
continental rates. Orders have been is
sued directing- equality of service and rates
to all and also a reduction . of rates. But
so congested Is the railroad bv transDorta-

"ii tnose Having authority In the canal
work. In intimations or Irregularities and
frauds and favoritism In contracts with
out any evidence whatever to Justify sus
picion, and generally In the constaut aug
gestlon of a presumption that the expendi
ture of millions in building the canal must
Involve what Is called "graft." Doubtless
congressional Investigations will ba held
from time to time.
Doubtless they ought to be held to assure,
the public; but it they are to be permitted
to delay the work on the canal and to par
alyse the energy of these upon whom the
burden of pushing the work must fall, then
they will be productive of evil and will be
come exactly what many private interests
would be glad to have them become, the
grave of all the high hopes for a trans
lMihuiian ounal. The American people will
not permit such a caairophe.
Keeping u the Interest.
As L have already said. I have Just re
turned from a trip to the Isthmus. I was
there a year ago, and so long as tbe work
remains under my supervision I shall deem
It my duty to visit the isthmus once a
year. I shall do this not only to keep in
formed of the work in actual progress, but
because I believe it stimulates the subordl
nte In an enterprise like this to have It
felt that their work is under the liumedi
ate observation of the suirvlory power,
yd that what they are doing ia a matter
of interest and observation for everybody
from the president down.
1 recall that while at the meeting of the
Cincinnati Commercial club last year pro
posal was made that a ateainer be chart
ered to visit Panama this winter, and I
agreed to be on ot the party, or at least to
tune my annual visit so that 1 should be

sion is that it would be wlfcer to postpone

Violation of Injunction.
KANSAS CITT. Mo.. !V.,v it.i.i.n
John F. Phihpa of the fnlted States dis
trict court of the Western district of Mis
fourl, ' has taken undvr advisement the
question raised by the railroaus demurring
to the contempt proceedings brought by the
federal government for alleged violation of
Judge Philips' order, restraining the com
panies from giving rebates. Judge Philips
said he believed the proper place to Investi
gate the alleged granting of rebates In con
nection with the Hutchison salt ease was
In Kansas where the company does busi
ness, and that the -charge against the
Santa Fe of granting preferential rates to
tho International Harvester company ought
to be Investigated In the federal district
of northern Illinois at Chicago.

' In explaining the bringing: of the snli.
In Kansas City Milton D. Purdy. assistant
attorney general said:
"It happened that these Injunction suits
were pending In the Western district of
Missouri instead of the northern district
of Illinois or some other district. We
ahould have been only too glad to have
filed a similar Information In the Inter
national Harvester case at Chlcsigo had we
been permitted to do so. We were forced
to come to this federal district or to dis
regard entirely the violation of your hon
or's Injunctions to prevent the imntlnr
of rebates, or to proceed directly agalnstfj
the railroads "under the Elklns' aet. It
was concluded to bring the matter direct
to your honor's attention by filing Informa
tion. Mr Purdy In combatting the motions
to quash the information, says:
"In a court of equity the relief must be
as broad us the law," he declared. "The
only redress the government has Is In a
court of equity, fhder the powers dele
gated to tho government to punish the
violation of Its tawa the giving of rebates
by any of these railroads anywhere along
their lines may be made the subject of
FAVORS SEA. LEVEL CANAL
Board of Consulting; Engineers by
lorge Majority Arrives at
WASHINGTON. Nov. 18.-The board of
coiibulting engineers of the Isthmian Canal
commission todny declared itself by a largo
majority In favor of a 'sea level canal.
The conclusion was reached after a long
and careful study oLthe project. Since the
beginning of September the board haa held
meetings and In special sub-committees
had studied the plana for a sea level canal
with the greatest care, A trip to the
isthmus waa made to enable the members
to form a better idea of the physical dim
cultlos which had to be considered.
The members of the board are men of
the greatest reputation In their lino of
work. France Germany and Holland have
sent their most eminent specialists at the
request of the American government.
"From the beginning it waa evident that a
majority waa In favor of the sea level
banal. Their point of view waa that even
if. It cost, mora than a. lock canal and would
take longer In the building', It won Id ulti
mately be of greater use as it will enable
ships to make a much shorter' trip than If
they were obliged to go through three or
four locka. On the other hand waa a min
ority which wanted to gee the canal built
In aa short a time aa possible and with the
least cost, declaring that a few 'hours
ldnger for the trip through the Isthmus
made but little or no difference. One of
the members gave thla explanation for his
way of voting:
"It may be that several of us will not see
the sea level canal finished In our life time
as It will take considerable longer than ten
years. But then we have the satisfaction
to know that for all the generations to
follow we have made the shortest and most
practical way of communication between
the Pacific and Atlantic, and aa long as
we had to decide on a question for all time,'
we do not think that a few years more
or less makes a very important difference.
That la the way our party thought about It
and whatever may be said; In favor or
against It we have, after the most careful
study, given an opinion aa we saw our way
to do It."
