surgent8 to recognize the authority
of the United States. Panay ha:
an area of 4800 square miles. There
is no estimate to the number of in
habitants on which dependence can
be placed; but they may exceed
half a million. . Sugar is the main
industry. The business interests
of Ilo Ilo are almost entirely in the
hands of English and German firms
Exports of sugar exceed those of
Manila, and the whole town smells
of it. The town lies close to the
seashore, but is reached by means
of a sluggish creek, which has been
dredged out until it will admit the
island steamers. Large vessels must
lie in the channel outside, where
there is good anchorage. The chan
nel between Panay and the next
island is five to eight miles wide.
Ilo Ilo is built on low ground, muoh
of which is filled swamp land. It
is not an attractive place. V
