PANAMA MAY CONCEDE.
Defeat of Canal Treaty Likely to Cause
Revolution In Colombia.
New York, Sept. 12.—Representa
tives of strong interests on the isthmus
of Panama who make their headquarters
in thia city are reported to be consider
ing a plan of action to be undertak tn
in co-oepration with men of similar
views in Panama and Colon to bring
about a revolution and form an inde
pendent government in Panama op
posed tn that in Bogota.
There is much perturbation on the
isthmus on account of the failure of
the ranal treaty, which is ascribed to
the authorities at Bogota, and the na
tives of Panama think it is to their
best interest for a new republic to be
formed on the isthmus which may ne
gotiate directly with the United States
for a new treaty.
Caught Making Counterfeit Coin.
Newark, N. J., Kept. 12.—Three men
have been arrested in a house in Mul
berry street in the act of making coun
terfeit silver coin. In the place were
found silver in liars, melting pots, a
milling machine, machine for trim
ming and finishing the coins and a
quantity of coins in .11 stages of manu
facture. One of the men, who gave the
name of Frank Donahue, is suspected
of being a New York policeman. A
photograph, apparently of himself, in
uniform, and a policeman’s shield was
found on him.

ACQUIRE FRESH PROPERTIES.
State Treasurer C. 3. Moore, who
has just returned from a month's out
ing in Klamath county, reports that all
Industrial affairs In that section of the
Htate are prosperous and that the coun
try surrounding Klamath 1-ake ia
steadily developing. Irrigation ditch
es are being enlarged and extended and
the producing area gradually enlarged,
the hay crop of that region is enor
mous and since prices are up the farm-,
ers are making money.
“The productiveness of that sage
brush land when water is put on it is
amazing," said Mr. Moore. “There ia
a large tract of land out south of Low
er Klamath lake that I used to drive
ever frequently a few years ago. I
would not give ten cents an acre for It
without water on It. A man could not
live on it. This summer I drove
through that same country and Instead
of a dry, sage-brush plain, I saw fields
covered with an immense crop of wheat
and land that has already yielded one
<.rop of alfalfa and has another crop
almost ready for cutting. One tract of
1000 acres of that apparently worthlesa
land produced 25,000 bushels of wheat
1200 tons of alfalfa already this season.
I am told that the owners o( that tract
of land, which was covered with sage
brush three years ago, will clear up
from $15,000 to $20,000 this year.
The land is owned by Henry E. An
keny and Roscoe Cantrell, and is irri
gated from their ditch. I do not know
what they paid for the land, but it is
quite certain that they have already
realized all they ever put into it, and
could now sell ft for at least one-third
more than it has cost them, counting
all Improvements. This simply illus
trates the wonderfuld productiveness
of that soli if you can only get water
