Panama Celebrates
Independence Day
PANAMA, Nov. 28. While looking for
ward to the opening of the Isthinalan
canal and anticipating a 'great Increase
In Its already established prosperity,
Panama Is today observing the ninety
second anniversary of Its Independence
from Spain. It was the last of the South
American colonies to shake off Its Euro
pean rule when, on November 28, 1S21, It
declared Independence from Spain.
It then became for a tlrao the depart
ment of the Isthmus of the new republic
of Colombia, but its history for many
years continued to be one of strife until
1903, when Independence from Colombia
was effected.
Some of the milestones In Panama's
history, after the Independence from
Spain In 1821 are the completion of the
Panama railroad in 1SS5, the start of the
construction of the Panama canal In 1881
and treaty with the United States In 1904
through which Panama virtually became
a protectorate of the United States.
Its shores, which were the mecca of
pirates until Spain built a costly wall
around the capital in 1874, will soon
virtually furnish a peaceful calling port
for the shipping of the world.
