The government ot Panama is that

state. The terms of the Hay-Varilla
Tread y making; It such. By this
tread y the United States guarantee
and agrees to maintain the Govern
ment of that Country. Life, personal
liberty and property rlahts are as
safe as In the United States. The
same Military force protects both.
No country has been so grossly
misrepresented as to climate condi
tions as Panama. As a matter of fact
the climate has become one ot the
greatest factors in attracting settlers
in preference to other tropical sec
tions. Panama's temperature may
be dlscribed as warm during the day
and cool at night. The country is a
long narrow strip of land with great
seas of cool water washing its shores
which with its location as to air ana
water currents gives it a wonderful
equitable climate. The average
. temperature 1 is eighty-five degrees
and there is very little variation.
There is an abundance of rainfall.
The seasons are fixed and invariable
variation in temperature and rain
fall are entirely negligible month for
month, and year for year. There are
no off years, nor crop failure from
drought, rain or frost. The weather
holds no hazard; It performs like
clockwork, and every day ot the
year is a growing day.
Panama has always been as a
whole a healthful country, but in
former years the Cities of .Panama
and Colon were occasionally subject
to epidemics of diseases. This was not
due to inherent unhealthfulness of
the country, but was the result of in
adequate sanitation and lax quar
antine which allowed those towns to
become the catch-basin of disease
born by the great tide of travel that
flowed across the Isthmus. Slnot
sanitation Panama has been abso
- lutely free of theae diseases for the
past ten years, and it will be impos
sible (or It to ever gain a foothold
there. The death rate is extremely

that Panama is the most healthful

Panama is the transportation cross
road of the World. Location counts
for everything, la this regard Pan
ama stands pre-eminent. Panama is
the center of things. The cheapest
transportation in the World (water
transportation) will carry her pro
ducts to the markets of the World
at the very minimum of cost. The
ships ot all nations pans through her
gates. The freight rates are lest,
from Panama to New York than
they are from Pittsburg,. Pa., to New
York. The lands of the El Encanto
tract are ideally situated from a
transportation standpoint; every
part of them Is near the seaboard.
The streams are available for to
transport products down to the sea,

Too much cannot be said in
favor of Panama as a cattle

lose track of the fact that, witli

Price r Iioar4 of Trade.
CHICAGO, Sept. 23. Wheat prices suf
fered a sharp break today, largely as a
rtaull of tn purchase of Canadian wheat
to be Imported Into the United States.
The market closed unsettled, 1V0 to !.
lbc nut lower, with December at IMC anil
May at MSc. Corn lost Wlta to lc, oaia
finished l-Ioo off to Vuio up, and pro
visions at a rise of 2Vj3ac
Decplte the fact that tne actual amount
of Canadian wheat bought for Import
was only 60,Oj0 bushels, Uie bearish eifect
on prices proved far reaching and quick.
The market, which prevlouTy had been
on the advance owing to fear that con
tract stock would prove too meager to
(111 September deliveries, wn now plunged
down grade. Subsequent rallies failed to
overcome the greater part of the decline.
A contributing reason for sentiment
turning against the bulls was the an
nouncement that a large elevator com
pany here was proceeuing to clean bMiujo
bushels of No. 1 velvet chaff before
teeptembrr options expired. In such a
case any question would be avoided as
to whether or not the delivery would be
valid, regardless of how the Board of
Trade director might rule a to velvet
chaif which had not been cleaned.
Country ofieiinga of spring wheat In
the northwest Incvreased materially, not
withstanding that early In the day re
ports were current that consignment no
tices at Minneapolis ahoaed a tailing off.
It wa aaid that one of the principal
northern railways handled more loaded
car of wheat than ever before In th
history of the line and that greally en
larged receipt were expected at Minne

What People Think
President Wilson said:
Panama is now on the min
street, it will become densely
populated, a tliriftly and con
tented people will go there and
build up tho country.
Hon. John F. Wallace, Chair
man of Canal Commission,
The boumlries of Panama
embrace, n luxuriant and fer
tile country, which is capable
of sustaining a dense, popula
tion. The climate is salubri
ous, heretofore tho only places
scourged bv malignant dis
eases, have been the cities of
Panama and Colon, due to uu
sanitary conditions and. the
fact that they havo been the
erntewavs throuirh which the
tido of travel has-ebbed and
flowed. The temperature of
P a n a m a , is approximately
eighty degrees during the day;
the nights are cool and refresh
ing. The treaty between the U. S.
and Panama provides for a
protectory which gives the
and the big end of th offering wa
uought thai way. One packer who did
not buy any hens until toward th close
succeeded in weakening value a little
on the late round, and the result wa
that some of Uie Vats salss were little
oeiier man sieauy wun rwinuir.

SHEEP Supplies moderated a good bit
today, but st that presented a generous
ai'pearanco for a Thursday. Estimates
called for seventy-seven car, or 21.0
head, and as yesterday' official count
overran the estimate nearly S.OiA head,
the total for the four days Is 147,003 head.
This Is a gain of l," head over a week
ago, 1 more than 8,000 larger than two
weeks ago and 8,000 heavier than for tha
same days last year. Four days' supplies
are larger than for any similar ierlod
for nearly twn year and much larger
than any of the other markets.

sgaln took that figure, which ha brought
nearly all the dealrabl killer all week.
Movement started In good season and a
pretty good clearance of everything In
the barn wa made by o'clock. There
ha been no quotable t..angs In killing
larrra prices at any time this week.
Trade In feeding stock thl morning wa
on a fully steady basis, and In spots
looked a little stronger. Bulk of the good
to choice feeder are selling at 88.00 and
up, a good many going around 88 108 16,
and after being missing for a dav the
Si;0 top was restored. Heavy supplies
of feeder all thl week have not dulled
th appetite of buyer In th least and
price have shown very little change, al
though there was a slightly weaker ten
denoy right at the start of the week.
IVedlng and breeding ewes, Which have
been cleaned up very readily all week
were In limited supply today.

most nothing today, th few that were
her selling at fully steady prices. Best
