THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JULY 2, 1916.
PANAMA TO ELECT
Next Sunday Marks End of the
Host Bitter Campaign in
V. S. VITALLY INTERESTED
Panama, July 1. Balloting will take
place Sunday, July 9, throughout the
republic to elect i president to suc
ceed Dr. Bcliiario Porraa, whose
term of four yeara will (Sipn next
month. There are two IrTmdates
representing different factraps pf the
same-party: Dr. Ramon M? Valdes,
liberal, and Dr. Rodolfo Chiari, liberal-republican.
The election will bring to a close
one of the most bitter presidential
campaigns the republic has witnessed
in the thirteen years of its existence.
From the very first there have been
acrimonious political discussions in
the partisan papers and charges and
countercharges of corruption have
been frequent in both newspapers and
main fly sheets that are always part
of a presidential campaign in Panama.
United States Vitally Intereated.
During the campaign the American
minister, William J. Price, has closely
watched the course of events and
there have been numerous conferences
between the leaders of the two fac
tions. The United States is vitally
interested because it guarantees the
independence and peace of the little
republic. These conferences have con
cerned themselves also witn me ques
tion of election supervision. The fol
lowers of Chiari favor supervision and
say that non-supervision will mean
the fracture of the public peace on
election day through disorders and
possible revolutions in ill carta of
the republic. ' . 1 ,
Dr. Valdes' supporters declare there
is no danger of trouble and that if
there should be it can easily be con
trolled by the national police. Dr.
Valdes aijd bis friends are bitterly
opposed to supervision. The United
States has manifested no disposition
to supervise, feeling it to be an un
warranted interference in the internal
affairs of the country. The military
authorities of the canal lone, however,
are expected to be instructed to pre
vent any threatened trouble.
No Great Isau Involved.
No great political principle has been
involved in the campaign. It has been
largely fought on the issue of ex
travagance which the Chiari faction
charges to the administration of Dr.
Porras, who is said to be behind the
candidacy of Dr. Valdes. It is charged
that to Dr. Porras' administration is
due the present financial condition
of the republic, which for the first
time in its history finds itself sad
dled with a national debt of approxi
mately $4,000,000. .
Dr. Valdes is the representative of
the present so-called liberal party. He
' is locally regarded as the official can
didate of Dr. Porras. Dr. Chiari, who
also claims to be the candidate of
the real liberal party and whose sup
porters are locally called the Chiaris
i tas, is the candidate of the former
friends of Dr. Porras, whom the latter
is declared to have antagonized
through his alleged high-handed
methods of 1914 during the election of
deputies to the national assembly.

see the government's exhibit now

the grburid formerly occupied by the

cess of five acres, and is located one
mile north of the postoffice. The
entire tract is covered with beautiful
trees and shrubs. The grounds a few
years ago was one of the show places
Victor avenue has been cut through
the property between Sixteenth and
Eighteenth streets. In platting, a
special effort has been made so that
neither streets , nor houses will re
move the valuable trees.
, One . special feature has been the
placing of water, sewer and gas in
side the property line, instead of in
the center of the street, which is
usually customary. This prevents
cutting of the pavement later and
saves the buyer considerable money
in bringing this, improvement inside
of the lot. . .

will begin paving ' both Victor and

DO NOT RESPECT OFFICERS
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
The Hague, Netherlands, June 21.
Interesting information as to what
has been accomplished in preparing
the Dutch army for modern warfare
in the twenty-one months during
which it has now been on a war foot
ing was contained in a statement pre
sented to parliament by the minister
of war, 'Major General N. Bosboom,
when he asked for a fresh appropria
tion of $40,000,000 to cover mobiliza
Even a partial demobilization is
still out of the question, according
to the war minister.
Answering the question whether
the Dutch army was adequately pre
pared for war and whether the ma
terial and equipment fulfill modern
requirements, he said that although
it was inadvisable to make public in
formation which might benefit a pos
sible enemy, there was no doubt the
Dutch soldiers could face the pros
pect of war with confidence.
In August, 1914, the material and
equipment left much to be desired.
The workshops of the kingdom were
not ready for mass production. These
shops have been enlarged and a hun
dred factories have been equipped
for the production of war material.
There is a great supply of hand
grenades, in the use of which the
troops have been trained. Gas masks,
steel helmets, modern engineering
material, trench shields, barbed wire,
and protective material have been
made in large quantities.
Searchlights for coast defense, land
positions and field troops have been
increased. Automobile stations for
wireless telegraphy have been formed.
The army has at it disposal a great
number of motor lorries for the trans
port of troops and wounded. The
number of aeroplanes has been large
ly increased. These are provided with
bombs, machine guns and quiokfirers,
and, as regards speed and raising
power, they have been brought up
to the standard prevailing abroad.
Private industry has co-operated in
the building of new aeroplanes, al
though Holland remains dependant
on foreign countries for motors.
- As regards the medical service, the
reserve hospital accommodation has
been increased by arrangements with
ISO civilian nursing institutions.
Moreover, an institute of military
dentists has been established. Vac
cination against smallpox, typhus and
meningitis is being carried out.
An unfavorable comment on the re
lations between commanders and men
in the Dutch army is the fact, now
made known, that many thousands
of soldiers persisted in going on fur
lough at taster, when leave was re
fused them owing to the special cir
cumstances that made the position
dangerous for Holland, severe pun
ishment has been meted out to the
men concerned. Incidentally, the
minister mentioned that there were
fifty-two suicides in the army at the
beginning pf mobilization.

It is an idea we hav persisted in for twenty-eight years, or ev"er
