In n nutshell, wo know that It tho
revolution was successful wo would
got what wo wanted and would bo
able to go on with tho cnnnl building
without furthor delay; also, wo know
thnt If Colombia continued to con
trol tho caital territory, there might
Ira no cud to tho difficulties. Many
people go no tar as to sny that tho
United States actively nldod tho
revolution; cortnlnly wo did nothing
to check It.
As n result of our rather rough
shod action, work on th cnnnl

Colombia Is bitter against us for
what wo did. Pressure Is still being
brought to bear to have tho cntlro
matter placed before tho llnguo arbi
tration tribunal. It Is not Impos
sible that this may bo done, and thnt
If It Is done Ditto Colombia may got
An Indication of how Colombia
feels toward us Is shown by tho fact
that Secretary Knox, who Is touring

bo asked to visit that country.
Tim Canal Itself.
In 1905 construction started. At
tho outset It was expected thnt tho
canal would bo completed In 1015,
but It Is now announced thnt It will
bo ready for shipment In July, 1913.
Tho present head of tho construc
tion Is Colonel G. W. Goothnls. Tho
entire work Is now under tho man
agement of tho United States army,
for since tho resignation of John F.
Stevens tho big Job has been tnken
out of tho hnnds of civilian engi

of tho construction army; and, worst
of all, graft and fraud ruled with a
free hand, and millions of dollars of
stock holders' mpney was absolutely
wasted through Incompetent handl
ing of vanished In tho pockets of tho
thieving directors and contractors.
Finally tho French concern "went
broke." They had no cosh with
which to continue operations, and
unless they could find a purchaser
all their Investments on tho Isthmus
were utterly wasted. That was, ap
proximately, In 1900.
Just about then tho United States
was considering the possibility of
constructing a canal through Nica
ragua, north of Panama. The French
company offered to sell out all their
Panama rights to Uncle Sam. Thero
was a lot of very complicated bar
gaining and Jockeying, somo of It
creditable and some of It otherwise.
Finally, to make a long story very
short, what is now the republic of
Panama revolted from Colombia, to
which country It belonged. That
was In 1003. Just beforo tho so
called "revolution," which was an
opera 'bouffe affair, tho United
States bad been bargaining with
Colombia for the canal property
which, In a few months, would have
been forfeited to it by tho French
company because of the lapse of &
time contract. Colombia tried to
"double -cross" us; the price she
asked was exorbitant, and the con
ditions unreasonable. Just then it
looked very much as If the Panama
route would 'be abandoned and Nica
ragua chosen instead.
Tbon, at a peculiarly opiortuno
time, came the "revolution" of 1903.
At once, contrary to precedent, the
United 8tate recognlied the revolu
tionists and their new republic of
Panama, and even wont so far aa to
forbid Colombia from attempting to
bring back the revolted portion of
her territory. Vory shortly after
that the new republic sold to the
United States all we wanted for tho
Canal, and the French company also
sold us their holdings.
Panama got 110,000.000 tor a.
trip of country ten miles wide, from
one ocoan to the other, through
which the Canal passes; for this she
also receives, after next year, an an
nual rent of $250,000. The French
company received 140,000,000 for.nll
their, Holdings and .rights.

Ibukct 1111 Games.
Tho Prlnovlllo basket ball team
won both of the games here on Fri
day and Saturday nights, but the
Dend boys worked hard against their
more skilled opponents. The score
of tho first game waa 36 to 23 and of
tho second 31 to 13.
Good team work and accuracy In
shooting goats from tho field made
both victories easy for the visitors.
Bend's main weakness was n not
being able to closely guard their op
ponents, and the Prlnovlllo mon often
bad a try at the baskot without any
Interference. In the first game C.
Springer did fine work In throwing
foul goals, but Baturday night got
only one basket out of many tries.
