.1 the Pacific ocean, off lh
ooast of Colombia. 1 am
seated on the dock of tha
Peruvian steamer Iluallaga,
calling southward along the
west const of tho 8011th Amer-
oan continent Wo left Halloa and
tho , Tanama canal two days ago,
going out ns the sun was Just set
tins over our fortifications on the Islands
of Flamenco, Peruo and Naos. We
sailed past theso Islands, and when not
far from Tabagoga turned southward.
W are now a little north of the equator,
Moving along tho coust of Colombia. e
are In tho doldrums or one of equatorial
calms, where thero j so llttjo wind that
sailing vessel? will hardly be able to reach
the canal. The air Is almost still, art 1
were It not for the slight breeze we have
from the northeast trade winds it would
be stifling. As It is, tho sea seems tu
steam. Tho ocean Is a vast sheet of
molten silver, which now and then, rip
'pics Into a moving ocean of diamonds
tinder tho tropical sun. In the shadow of
tho vessel tho water is Indigo blue, out
on tho opposite sldo there is nothing hut
a vast expanse of this dazzling steaming
On the nisrcreiit of Qounnn.
This is the mighty Pacific, into tho
heart or which we have cut our way by
tho Panama canal. It Is hero al the
, equator that tho ocean Is widest) and its
waters stretch from whero I now am, a.
dlstnnco of almost 10.00Q miles bsfora
they reach Asia. The Pacific ocean has
threo-clgliths of all the calt water on tho
globe, and within a rew years it will be
covered with trade routes whoso focus
will be the Isthmus of Panama, Many
of the countries of the world are already
building steamers. Jupan has several
lines under way, and there Is hardly a
great port In Europe that Is not prepar
ing to send ships to Panama.
AH down this west coast of South,
America thoy are planning to tako ad
vantage of tho new waterway. The vesi
Bfl on which I am traveling Is subsidized
by thu Peruvian government. Another
lino of ships sailing along this coaM be
longs to tho Chileans, and tho day t loffr
Panama one of the largest vesssls o tho
Paclflo Steam Navigation company, the
old British line, started south, to call at
tho west poast ports tho samo day. I
could have gone to Guayaquil on the
Manavi. but that ship would navo taken
eleven days to have mado the less than
$00 miles between tho two ports, whereas,
the Iluallaga made it In less, than tr.ree.
Tho Manavi Is a llttlo British boat of 1.000
tons, and Us passenger rates mo ever
30 cents a mile. The faro from I'unaina j
to Guayaquil Is $S2,50. Jt Is so high that
if you had to pay at tho same rate, it
would cost you $300 to cross the Atlantic
from the United States to Kurope, and
something like $500 to go from San Fran
cisco to Shanghai. I havo bought a
through passage from Panama to Callao,
Peru, on this steamer, and have paid for
is Just about $100. The distance lrat is
only 1.34S miles, or about as far as from
New York to New Orleans, a trip that
can bo made by rail for less than one
third the amount.
Ship I, I Uc n I'nrniynrd.
And Btlll I like theso Peruvian steam
ers. They are unllko thoso of any other
part of tho world. The cabins nro large
and they open out upon deck with win
dows and doors. You can sit In your
room as though on a porch, and loo: out
over the ocean, and tho windows and
doors can bo kept open both t'.ay and
night. The shp carries milch of its own
llvo stock on board., and I awako every
morning thinking I am pn my mountain
farm In Virginia. There s a crowing of
roosters and a cackling of geeso and 1
ducks. "Wo carry about 200 fowls on
board, and the stewards gather t)ip eggs
ovcry morning. Tfoo omelet I had for
breakfast today was almost fresh from
tho hen, and it was far better than tho
cold storage egg that one gets at Updo
Sam's'hotels on the isthmus,
Jievr llout to Ulile On,
Wa havo breakfast at 1 o'clock, which
my boy Carl says is a peach of a time
for the meal. The times of eating liera
are strictly Latin-American. They begin
with desayuno, which is a cup of black
coffee and a cracker served In your room
upon rising. After that comes almuerzzo
or the first breakfast, at 11, consisting of
a soup and fish, steak or eggs, with ba
nanas and oranges nt the close, Wo havo
tea at 4 o'clock In the afternoon, and nt
7 a table d'lioto dinner, Tho cooking Is
Spanish, and is not at all bad. Tho
waiters are natives, and tho bills of fare
are In Spanish, so that Carl takes his
dictionary to the tablo to order hta meals,

The Iluallaga has Just about 5.000 tons.
It Is a new boat mado In Franca about
two years ago. It burns oil as fuel, and
it cau mako sixteen knots' an hour. It Is
very steady and is exceedingly comfort

tho west coast cf Colombia, but so far
out, Unit the land cannot bo soen. It Is
only the email steamers like the Manavi
that call at tho ports on that coast, and
