The visitor to the Isthmus ordinarily loses much time and patience in being compelled to make inquiries at nearly every turn, and in finding out for himself the things he should be able to post up on beforehand. It is the aim of the Pilot and Guide to afford tourists and travelers a certain amount of general information of this nature as will tend to make their visit a more thorough and pleasant one.
The Isthmian quarantine regulations are very Quarantine. strict and must be complied with to the letter. Incoming vessels must fly a yellow flag (Q) at the fore and await quarantine inspection at the anchorage designated. The flag must not be lowered until pratique is granted by the quarantine officer. The captain of such vessel must not allow any boat or other craft, except that of the officers of the port, to approach within 200 meters, or allow anything to leave the vessel. Vessels however, arriving at the ports of Colon and Cristobal are allowed, at the discretion of the Quarantine Officer, to come alongside the wharf for inspection except when they have sickness on board, or are from ports infected with quarantinable diseases, unless they have proper certificates showing that they have not lain at an anchorage exposing such vessel to infection. Vessels arriving at night must anchor in the bay and not come to the wharf for inspection before daylight.

Others will be held in observation to complete six full days from date of last exposure to infection. Vessels arriving with cases of yellow fever aboard will be treated in accordance with the source of infection.

Some of the inward bound steamers, notably the Panama Railroad, boats afford an opportunity to passengers to be vaccinated before landing.

to the U. S. Consulate at port of departure, if such an officer is on duty, stating the locality in which the person has resided, and whether in the opinion of the medical officer such locality or house is presumably afflicted with plague. This certificate must be presented to the quarantine officer on inspection and will be weighed as evidence as to whether further observation of passenger is advisable or necessary. If the certificate of the passenger shows that he has not resided in a badly plague-infected environment for five days immediately preceding embarkation, he will not be detained under observation for a longer period than to complete five days from date of departure. Such passengers as have resided in a badly plagueinfected environment may be detained under observation for a sufficient period to complete seven days, or even ten days from date of departure. Passengers in transit who can embark at once in continuing their journey, will be allowed to land and proceed even if the five days have not been completed, provided however, that such passenger has been certified by the medical officer as not having resided in an infected environment, and the provision regarding baggage has been complied with. Baggage of passengers must be passed, or disinfected, if in the opinion of the medical officer such treatment is necessary, and be labeled at port of departure. The crew of the vessel will be detained on board to complete at least five days, or longer, if deemed necessary. These regulations only apply to vessels which have not had sickness suspicious of plague on board at port of departure, during the voyage, or on arrival, and that have not had a suspicious mortality among rats on board. Ships infected with plague, or suspicious of being infected will be treated in accordance with existing quarantine regulations. Grain, bran, and bird

Persons falling under the provisions of the foregoing will be required to proceed to their destination by the first available transportation.

Steamship companies bringing such persons, and refusing to furnish a guarantee, will be required to maintain them on board, and to deport same at their own expense.
