Russian Colony in Panama Fails

New York Daily Tribune, December 2, 1905, Page 2.
Panama. Dec. 1. The Russian colony in Chiriqui
has proved a failure. The government made, every
effort to help the colonists, and the reason assigned
for their failure is that they had incompetent directors.


Fifty Russian families left Panama on August 30
for Chiriqui, and arrangements were made by
which the same number of Russian families would
be settled each month in different parts of the republic. The government was to give each family
$300 and thirty acres of land.
