resulted in Will Hardison shoot-

Beauty and Strength
New York, March 31.—The
members of the Panama Canal
Commission sailed Tuesday for
Colon 011 the steamship Alliance.
They will inspect the entire route
of the canal and look over somo
of the documents of the canal
company, preparatory to the de-
livery of the property to the
United States Government. They
probably will remain at the isth-
mus two mouths. The commis-
sioners were accompanied by Col.
William C. Georgas, Assistant
Surgeon General of the army; Dr.
Lowis Lagardo of the medical de-
partment of the army and Dr.
John VV. Ross, Medical Director
of tho navy. Roger Farnham,
representing William Nelson
Cromwell,counsel for tho Panama
(/anal Company, also sailed 011
the same vessel.
The medical men will plan ar-
rangement* for the sanitation of
the canal zone.
"Our present plan," said Rear
Admiral Walker, chairman of the
commission, "is to go over the
entire route of the canal, making
an investigation of the work done,
the improvements that are neces-
sary and the arrangements that
will have to be made for proper
sanitation in tho district. There
is hardly anything that 1 can say
regarding our plans. No con-
tracts will bo let as the canal is
not actually ours."
When told that William Nelson
Cromwell had said that the com-
mission would act as if tho United
States actually had entire posses-
sion «f tho property, tho Rear
"That is not so and I do not
think Mr. Cromwell intended to
convey that impression. As to the
question of labor and of contracts
and supplies, these aro things too
far ahead to bo talked of at this
Dr Ross, speaking for the icp-
Mesentatives of tho medical pro-
fession in tho party, expressed
the opinion that under proper
sanitary arrangements the canal
/.one can be made as salubrious as
Among those at tho dock when
the Commissioners sailed was Dr.
Amador, Panama Consul, whoso
father is President of tho now
republic. "The arrival of tho
Commissioners," said Dr. Ama-
doi, "will be tho signal for a
great popular demonstration in
Panama. There will be a series
of entertainments in their honor,
as their arrival means tho con-
summation of the dearest wishes
of the people of the republic."
