UNIQUE LIFE OF

Free Quartern, High Pay, Lous Vo

Canal Stone Attractions-Commissary
By GEORGE PALMER PUTNAM.
Tho moat Interesting fcaturo of
the Interesting work on the Panama
Canal la not the construction It
self but the workers.
Their life la unique, In many waya,
Study the Points
of our Shoes and you will acknowl
edge that they are high grade from
every possible standpoint. The
leather, the moulding, tho finish
everything about the shoes
ehows a study of comfort for
the wearer, and a planning
to give him the full worth

A. L. FRENCH
Oregon St., Bet. Wall and Bond,
and certainly no body of men and
women ovor beforo have lived under
auch circumstances as surround
Uncle Sam'a Isthmian construction
In tho first place, tho wagp acalo
la extremely high, and overyono seta
more thnn ever boforc. Tho result
la that tho avorago man "puts on
moro dog" at Panama than ho did
or could In the north. Socially, tho
dollar sign comos pretty near ruling,
for overyono knowa exactly what
everyone elao geta, and as quartora
and all perquisites aro distributed
In ratio to salaries there naturally
arlaea very clear-cut lines, the
"hundred dollar men" hanging to
gether, etc., and cliques forming of
those who find themselves upon tho
same general financial footing.
Free Quarters Provided,
Tree quartora are provided every
white employee by the Canal Com
mission. In fact, the Government
comes so near arranging everything
pertaining to the details of dally llfo
that tho criticism Is, often from tho
very men who aro receiving the bene
fits of the system, that aftor a fow
years on the Canal Zone all Inltlatlvo
Is gone, and with It all desire to re
turn to northern life, whero a man
la apt to get oniy wnai no goea alter.
Dacholors are quartered In two-
atory dormitories, with free light,
water and fuel. They eat In Gov
ernmontally conducted hotels, whero
moala aro aerved at an average of
30 cents each, paid for from coupon
books laaued and debited against
each rcclplent'a pay credit.
Married men have moro elaborate
quarters, all apportioned In propor
tion to the salary they recolve.
Vacation Prlvilejw Also.
Every year ovory salaried employee
Is entitled to a six-weeks vacation,
with full pay. If they go north, ea
Is advised from tho standpoint of
health benefit, thoy recolve tho fur
ther aid of halt fare on tbo steamers.
Free medical service, with 30 days
each year In tho splendid hoapltala
on full pay, Is another porqulslto of
the transplanted Americans. In
connection with tho hospitals a
beautiful sanitarium is maintained
on the island of Tnboga, In ho Uay
ConmiUsury All Important
While there aro disadvantages a
plenty for tho houaowifo who con
ducts a homo on tho Isthmus, tho
Government has done wondors to
raako matters pleasant for her.
The chief factor In this work la
the Commissary Department.
The Isthmian commissary Is a
aelf supporting institution. It sup
plies so mo 60,000 persons with all
thoy eat. Tho enormity of tbo busi
ness conductod Is Indicated by tho
fact that its annual total is moro
than 16,000,000. In addition to a
hugo cold storage warehouse at
Ancon. the department maintains 23
goneral stores on tho Canal Zone,
from all of which tho employees
may purchase directly Delivery la
mado to all houses. Each morning
a apeclal cold atorago train cros&os
the lathmua, delivering fresh batches
of meata and perishables at tho
Hundreds of gallons of Ice cream,
thousands of eggs, Ice, bakery pro
ducts, and. Indeed, everything from
laundry to candy, la supplied by tho
department, and furnlshod at prices
far lower than obtain In the big
northern markets, dcsplto tho fact
that Panama Is 2000 miles from tho
baso of supplies.
For Instance, tho Thanksgiving
Day turkey oatou by the writer at
Ancon cost tbo hostess 26 cents a
pound, wbllo Now York residents
were paying 38 conU for a nono-too-good
(Motollus Contral Orcgonlan.)
At last Friday night's meeting of
the Commercial Club most of tho
tlnio was taken up In a discussion of
tho subject of Incorporation. Thoro
has for some tlmo been a strong
feeling favoring this movoment and
thoso In attendance at tho meeting
with ono exception expressed them
selves unanimously for tho Incorpor
ation of tho town.
