It was

Tobacco is also raised to a considerable extent. here that the famous gold mine “ Lorania " of the ancient Spanish times was worked with great success. This mine like many of the ancient mines of Mexico, has become lost, as it were. Valuable timbers are abundant, and there is a good field för saw-mills to operate. Raicilla, ipecac, and sarsaparilla are shipped to Panama for export. Pe.. dregal is the port of David, which is the capital of the Province of Chiriqui. Through this port, and that of Remedios, all shipping passes. The Province of Chiriqui is the most prosperous in the Republic; it is the richest of all in cattle raising and in the general products of the country, such as ivory nuts, corn, beans, rice, etc. The plains are extensive, and the temperature mild and agreeable. Within a short distance of the town of David, is the village of Boquete, where a colony of Americans established plantations of coffee and cocoa several years ag. Both of these products are raised in considerable quantities, and the quality of the cocoa is superior to that of many other sections in Central America, producing higher prices in the London market. In the Province of Chiriqui; the Andes Mountains attain the highest altitude of any point on the Isthmus. We have the mountains of Cerro de la Horqueta, which has an altitude of 2.000 meters, and Cerro Picacho, with an altitude of 2.150 meters; other high peaks are Ballazar, Santa Maria, Cerro Fiego, Chorca and Hornitos. The extension of the lanos of David, Alanje, and San Félix is immense; the soil is wonderfully fertile and productive. The country has an extensive sea coast, and several important rivers. Some of these emptying into the Pilcific are the Tavasare. Fonseca, David, Rio Chico, Guanaba110, and Golfito. The mining industries of the province produce gold, salt, and some copper. The province of Chiriquí. is, without exception, the healthiest part of the Isthmus.

Attention is also called to the facilities which will be afforded by the new enterprise recently organized, the

“Compania Nacional de Transportes,” which will furnish passenger transportation from the different ports to the interior capitals of the provinces. It is also understood that this company will establish a freight service. With these conveniences for the rapid carrying of the products from the different towns and the means of communication by water, which the National Navigation Company will furnish, a prosperous future is predicted for the Republic of Panama, and this new steamship company.
