President Taft li a s issued a
proclamation fixing the rates that
the foreign shipping of the world
shall pay for passage through the
Panama Canal. The proclamation,
made under authority of the canal
act passed by Congress in August,
establishes a merchant vessel rate
of $1.20 per net ton o f actual
carrying capacity, with a reduc
tion of 40 per cent on ships in
The provisions of proclamation
are as follows:
On merchant vessels carrying
passengers or cargo, $1.20 per net
vessel ton each 100 cubic feet
of actual earning capacity.
On vessels i n ballast without
passengers or cargo, 40 per cent
less than the rate of tolls for vessels
with passengers or cargo.
On naval vessels, other than
transports, colliers, hospital ships
and supply ships, 50 cents per dis
On army and navy transports,
colliers, hospital ships and supply
ships, $1.20 per net ton, the
vessels t o be measured by the
same rules as are employed in de
termning the net tonnage of mer
American coastwise shipping
was exempted from toll payment
by Congress. It was to this pro
vision of the act that Great Bri
tain diplomatically protested, but
no reference to the incident was
made in the President's proclama
tion. American naval vessels are
exempted without specific mention
either in the act of Congress or
The rates named in the pro
clamation are practically the same
as those which will be in force at
the Suez Canal next year.
The president based h i s dis-
claration of rates upon the report
and investigation of Professor
Emery Johnson of the University
of Pennsylvania, an expert design
ated by Executive order for the
Professor John's report, given
out to-night, informed the Pres
ident that the Panama Canal
should be upon a self-substaining
basis in twenty years. It should
compete successfully with the
Suez route for the traffic of Europe
with South American west coast
points and with New Zealand, but
cannot b e expected to compete
successfully for Europe's trade to
the far East.
Taking the estimates of the
Canal Commission for expenses of
operation and maintenance of the
canal and for the improvements
helds to be necessary at the end of
a decade, Professor Johnson
figures that the rate per net ton
can be reduced at the end of ten
years to $1.
Tohnson's report shows that a
foreign traffic of about 9,000,000
tons may be expeoted through the
canal during its first two years of
operation, a traffic of more than
11.000,000 tons in 1920 and 14,
000,000 tons in 1925.
In referring to the rate upon
war vessels, lixea at so cents a
displacement ton, Professor John
son had this comment to make:
"The tolls upon merchant
vessels should be fixed low enough
to enable the Panama Canal effec
tively to promote the commerce of
the United States and the world,
but the United States Government
is not called upon to make the Pa
nama Canal tolls upon warships
low for the purpose of lighenting
the naval burdens o f foreign
