The startling announcement that
the Isthmian Canal Commission i
eavllt in debt and ha involved its
edit, bevond the limit authorized by
law; the frntik confesslo" of Srcretnry
Tnft thnt negroes are poor workmen
and that, tho labor problem con bo
solved possibly only by the employ
ment of Asiatics, as no white men
can bo found to stand work in the
tropical sun"; the reported agree
ment of the Advisory Board of Con
sulting Engineers on a "soa-level"
cnnal, that in effect distrubs the
plans now being carried out, and calls
for additional expenditures of time
and monev not hitherto thought to
be necessary: and finally tho bold
project of the export engineer,
Bunau-Varilla. for a "Straits of
Panama" to divide the two contin
ents liko another Bosphorus, whi-1
ho declares would bo tho best and
eventually tho choapest water-way
through the Isthmus; all these havo
stirred up a greater controversy over
tho canal than anything that ban
occurred slnco the United States en
dorsed tho Panama revolution and
assumed the responsibility for the
Tho New York World suspects
"mismanagement and reckless ex
travaganco" on account of the inaus
picious beginning of this stupendous
enterprise, and the history of the
canal construction work, says th
Memphis Commerical Appeal, "isn
calculated to give hope to the people.
The Dallas News asserts that "the
unexplained delay and remarkable
changes have tended to deepen the
impression that a costly failure must
bo recorded," which, in tho opinion
of the Houston Post, may lead" Con
gross to turn about and 1 go ' tho
Nicaragua route aftor all." Th
Moxican Herald declares that the
tangle in which the Americans have
become involved has encouraged
Great Britain and Japan "to con
struct a ship canal of tholr own"-
eventuality which as conservative an
authority as tho Washington Post"
does not believe improbable, for'
editorially notes that tho Tehuau
tepee route "is now being rapidly
developed by a Britisli company."
I'apers. however, winch are more
friendly to the Administration, sho
less impatience at the delay in the
work on the canal, and, In fact, take
a rather encouraging outlook. As
they view it, three years are not too
much timo to spsnd in "making
riht start" in this big undertaking
nor is tho $60,000,000 already expend
ed an evidence of extravagance when
the sum is itemized and carefully ex
ainined into. After deducting th
tho $40,000,000 paid for tho French
rights, and the $10,000,000 paid to
the Republic of Paname, only $10,
000,000 is left to bo accounted for,
if wo except n debt amounting to $1,
500,000 by the 1st of December. Of
tin balance, as Sec rotary Taft
admits, only $1548,000 was used by tho
department of construction and en
gineering, but the Philadelphia
fubiic i-ieugor avers mat "it is un
fair to underline this fact," as the
rest of tho moiey was spent for
honest salaries, wage, sanitation, and
bettorments of a permanent nature
that are "as essential to tho success
of the undertaking us the actual
work of making tho dirtily.'" So tho
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
cautions the public against feeling
undue anxiety or alarm over tho
situation. The Boston Transcript
recrlls that "the criticisms of delay
and extravagance in this casej are
of the same kind as those against the
engineer in charge of the building of
tho Suez Canal"; whilo Tho Wall
Street Journal, after essaying to
traco all opposition to its varirus
sources, speaks this friendly word of
"Tho new commission which has
been appointed with Mr. Shonts at
its head should bo given a full oppor
tunity to show what it can do. Tho
enemies of tho canal havp a right to
their opinion as to the desirability of
constructing it oven now that the
United States Government is fully
committed to the undertaking, and
if they liko they tr.ay co.i Untie u pro
paganda against it. Those interest
ed in tho Nicaragua route have the
privilego of still proclaiming the su.
periority of that route. The Democ
ratic minority in the House of Repre
sentatives has the right to make all
tho political capital it can out of the
Panama situation with'n certaiu de
cent limitations But there is some
thing otrensive to tho American sense
of fair play to attack tho Adminis

mettious. it cenuiuiy sueui- ua
enemies of tho canal were attacking
the commission because they wore
afraid to attack the President, who
is back of the commission."
In the midst of this conflict of opin
ion and mist of uncertainty tho pro
ject of Mr. Bunau Varilla, promising
the cheap and speedy construction ot
a satisfactory canal, looms up large.
His idea, as gathered from tho col-
urns of tho New York Journal of
Commerce, is simply that the Pa
nama Canal bo first constructed with
a summit level 130 feel above tho
sea, to which ships shall climb on
eithor side by a series of locks and bo
let down on the othor side by another
series of locks. This woulJ involve
tho construction of two huge dams,
with resulting lakes, ono at Bohio
and tho other at Gamboa; but
tho lofty waterway could be
completed in four years at a crst
far below present estimates and
opened to the commerce of the world.
Then, while the commerce went on
its way tho process of lowering
tho level to the sea and widen
ing and deepening the cut until
thoro was a ship .channel from
the Atlantic to tho Pacific fort
five feet deep and (ivo hundred feet
wide at the bottom, could also go on
unobstructed and unobstructing. It
would have all tho advantage of
water excavation and water convey
ance of material, which is tho most
economical. It would take twenty
years and eost $300,000,000, but,
according to the sanguino projector
of the plan, tho annual cost of the
work might bo defrayed from tho
revenues ot the canal already in oper
ation. As a vision this gigantic project of
Mr. Bunau-Varilla is alluring, and
has elicited much comment from the
press, public and professional circles.
The soundness of some of his ideas
seems to bo generally admitted, but
still it is pointed out that there are
many reasons which oppoie "con
clusions that are vital to his conten
tion." Probably the clearest and most
succinct summary of the objections
made to Mr. Bunau-Varilla's plan
appears In the Interview given to the
New York Herald by Lindon W.
Bates, consulting engineer, who says:
"Certain inexorable laws oppjse
Mr. Bunau-Varilla's plan. One is
tho rush of the current in tho bed of
a canal with parallel banks; another
is tho obvious necessity for widening
tho banks until a vast area must be
"Mr. Bunau-Varilla speaks of bot
tom deepening. This is the costliest
form of deoping, because it involves
both bottom and side excavation. A
lockless canal represents a river
emerging from an exhaustless re
servoir and emptying into tho Pacific
at stages of tido below mean sea
"Wo havo current velocities to
deal with. As the wator travels,
the pressure becomes grater and the
velocity Increases between parallel
banks. To securo a sufficiently uni
form velocity, with a depth appro
ximating the navigable plane, the
factor of width must expand by a
certain ratio por unit of length. Ex
porlenco proves that tho ratio, of
increase of width I? about ono to
eighty-five. In other words, in order
to insure that the current of a tidal
canai snail not exceed saro limit, or
ono and a half miles an hour, we must
gradually widen tho banks at the
ratio of say one foot to ono hundred
