With tiie tame simplicity, the fust vessel to pass through lite famous Culebra Cut, after the breaking of the dam boa dike had let in the water, was an ordinary row boat, while a humble but useful tugboat WHS the lust craft of any kind to make the passage through thegieat Gatun Locks. While the work of Ihe Pauima is still f.u In.in completed, yet the canal which the first Spanish explorers visualized is today an accomplished fact. Forth'' first time since the mountains rose from the sea, there is a Continuous water passage aciosc the isthmus, ships as laige as most ol hose of Ualboa's day can already be floated ftom ocean to ( cean. On September 25, 1515. Vasc Nunez de Balboa climbed Ihe peak* of the Con tineni.il Divideand dis covered the PAD be Ocean, winch he named "The South Sea. From where Balboa stood, his new ocean lay directly south, because of the S-diaped twist of the ithsmus, which brings the Pacific entrance to the canal not only southward but eastward of the Atlantic terminal, When Balboa's ieport of his discovery leached Spain, it was accompanied by the rec01111ncnd.it ion lh.it a canal be immediately dug across the isthmus. What the ex. ploiei had in mind was a sea level canal, for although Leonardo da Vinci, the gieat Italian painteiengmeer, had recently invented the hydraulic lock now general!) used fir Idling vessels over elevations it had not Income widely known. However, alluring as it seemed, the canal prodj'tf was dismissed. AcI'niduig to Some historian! its rfji-ciion was due mainly to the in flui-nce of the Church. To the simple I mil of tliii day it appeared (War that if God had intended !!" %  waleis to flow ru LOSS Ihe isthmus, He would have created a channel there, The discovtiy of gold in California, in 1848, was followed by a tieinendous volume of traffic between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and for 15 years practically all of this traffic was by wavof the isthmus, over the Panama Railroad opene.l m 1855 by Americans under a concession from the republic of New Granada, now known as Colombia. The explorations and surveys for the railroad, a work that is said to have cst ihe libol a man for every tie, ltd to a much more accurate knowledge of the topogiaphy and geology of the isthmus than had previously Ixrn available. President Grant, in 18G9 asked Congress to take up the mallei of a canal The. only action was a resolution providing (or an exploration by officers of ihe navy and the creation of a commission, in 1872, to consider their repoits. Then, in May, 1876, the repuhlicof Colomb a granted a Concession for the construction of a canal from Colon to Panama, the terminals of the Panama Railroad, to Lieut, Lucien Napo eon Bonaparte Wyse, an officer of the French army. In 1894, a new French company was organized and work was resumed. In 1899, the United States Congress created the Isthmian Canal Comission' to examine all practicable routes and to report winch was the most practicable and feasible for a canal "under the control, management and owner ship of the United States." The commission repoited two alternative plans, one for a canal at Panama and the other across Nicaragua. It estimated the cos of a Panama Canal at • 156.378.258 and of the Nicaragua Canal at $200. 540,coo. Hut because the route from New York to San Francisco would be seveial hundred miles shorter by way of Nicaragua, and consideimg existing Fiench concessions in Panama, the comrnis sum gave it as its belief thai the Nicaragua route was more desirable under the circumstances. The effect of tins repmt was to induce Ihe Preach Panama Company to oner its concession to the United Mites fur $40, 000,000, in January, 1912. I he Isthmian Canal Commission advised the puichase and Congress authorised the President to buy all the propeity of the Panama Company, including a maj inly of the slock of the Panama Railroad Company, and to obtain from Colombia perpetual control of a strip of land six miles wide, through which to build the canal. Colombia refused to grant this control, but in November, 1913, ten mouths later, the state of I'.mama declared itself indepeudant Within a month a treaty had been negotiated with the new republic by which the United States was given control of a strip of land 10 miles wide for the purpose of a canal. The French company's property was bought and, in Fedruary,i904, (continued on fourth page)

loutine of their regular work, anil
one thai called for no Inass hands
01 special ceremonies to glorify it.
With tiie tame simplicity, the fust
vessel to pass through lite famous
Culebra Cut, after the breaking of
the dam boa dike had let in the
water, was an ordinary row boat,
while a humble but useful tugboat
whs the lust craft of any kind to
make the passage through thegieat
Gatun Locks.
While the work of Ihe Pauima is
still f.u In.in completed, yet the
canal which the first Spanish ex-
plorers visualized is today an ac-
complished fact. Forth'' first time
since the mountains rose from the
sea, there is a Continuous water
passage aciosc the isthmus, ships
as laige as most ol hose of Ual-
boa's day can already be floated
ftom ocean to ( cean.
On September 25, 1515. Vasc
Nunez de Balboa climbed Ihe peak*
of the Con tineni.il Divideand dis
covered the Pad be Ocean, winch
he named "The South Sea. From
where Balboa stood, his new ocean
lay directly south, because of the
S-diaped twist of the ithsmus,
which brings the Pacific entrance
to the canal not only southward
but eastward of the Atlantic termi-
nal, When Balboa's ieport of his
discovery leached Spain, it was ac-
companied by the rec01111ncnd.it ion
lh.it a canal be immediately dug
across the isthmus. What the ex.
ploiei had in mind was a sea level
canal, for although Leonardo da
Vinci, the gieat Italian paintei-
engmeer, had recently invented the
hydraulic lock now general!) used
fir Idling vessels over elevations it
had not Income widely known.
However, alluring as it seemed, the
canal prodj'tf was dismissed. Ac-
I'niduig to Some historian! its rf-
ji-ciion was due mainly to the in
flui-nce of the Church. To the sim-
ple I mil of tliii day it appeared
(War that if God had intended !!"
waleis to flow ru loss Ihe isthmus,
He would have created a channel
there,
The discovtiy of gold in Cali-
fornia, in 1848, was followed by a
tieinendous volume of traffic bet-
ween the Atlantic and Pacific
coasts and for 15 years practically
all of this traffic was by wavof the
isthmus, over the Panama Railroad
opene.l m 1855 by Americans under
a concession from the republic of
New Granada, now known as Co-
lombia. The explorations and sur-
veys for the railroad, a work that
is said to have cst ihe lib- ol a
man for every tie, ltd to a much
more accurate knowledge of the
topogiaphy and geology of the
isthmus than had previously Ixrn
available. President Grant, in 18G9
asked Congress to take up the mal-
lei of a canal The. only action
was a resolution providing (or an
exploration by officers of ihe navy
and the creation of a commission,
in 1872, to consider their repoits.
Then, in May, 1876, the repuhlicof
Colomb a granted a Concession for
the construction of a canal from
Colon to Panama, the terminals
of the Panama Railroad, to Lieut,
Lucien Napo eon Bonaparte Wyse,
an officer of the French army.
In 1894, a new French company
was organized and work was re-
sumed. In 1899, the United States
Congress created the Isthmian
Canal Comission' to examine all
practicable routes and to report
winch was the most practicable
and feasible for a canal "under the
control, management and owner
ship of the United States." The
commission repoited two alterna-
tive plans, one for a canal at Pa-
nama and the other across Nicar-
agua. It estimated the cos- of a
Panama Canal at 156.378.258 and
of the Nicaragua Canal at $200.
540,coo. Hut because the route
from New York to San Francisco
would be seveial hundred miles
shorter by way of Nicaragua, and
consideimg existing Fiench con-
cessions in Panama, the comrnis
sum gave it as its belief thai the
Nicaragua route was more desirable
under the circumstances. The ef-
fect of tins repmt was to induce
Ihe Preach Panama Company to
oner its concession to the United
Mites fur $40, 000,000, in January,
1912. I he Isthmian Canal Com-
mission advised the puichase and
Congress authorised the President
to buy all the propeity of the Pa-
nama Company, including a ma-
j inly of the slock of the Panama
Railroad Company, and to obtain
from Colombia perpetual control
of a strip of land six miles wide,
through which to build the canal.
Colombia refused to grant this con-
trol, but in November, 1913, ten
mouths later, the state of I'.mama
declared itself indepeudant Within
a month a treaty had been nego-
tiated with the new republic by
which the United States was given
control of a strip of land 10 miles
wide for the purpose of a canal.
The French company's property
was bought and, in Fedruary,i904,
