Very few people stop to think
tlioiit what our prosperity costs year
by ear In liiiman life. In a paper
t'onti United to a svudlcnto magazine,
W. C. ritz-tlerald gives somo stnrt
lng statistics along this line. He
quotes President Itooseelt ns author
ity for the statement that the casual
ties attendant upon peaceful Indus
tries exceed those which happen un
der ii great and perpetual war. As
showing how little the captains of In
dustry caro for such things nn Inven
tor says: "If I produco n device to
t.ave time. I can cell it readily In "0
places, but If I offer nn Idea for sav
ing life. I cannot dispose of It at all. '
We would shudder at the thought of
a disaster that destroyed 57,300 peo
ple, but when that great number Is
distributed over tho country every
year It Is hardly considered. Tho
present avcrago of tho railroads of
tho country Is about HO killed and
2a0 injured every day. Not only tho
railroads, but the mines and quarries,
the factories and workshops, build
ing construction, agriculture and
lumbering contribute to tho fearful
slaughter that goes on from day to
day, hardly noticed because not con
centrated and ncceptcd as the regu
lar mder of things, tho price wo pa
for piosperlty. In legislation and
f.i safety devices Amoi leans uie far
behind the Kuropcan peoples. The
time should come when human life
niaj take on a higher value and tho
devices for tho saving of llfo nnd tho
prevention of mutilation receive moro
attention than It has up to tho pres
ent time. Life is more sucrcd In the
older nations than It Is with ours,
nnd the hope Is that as wo advance
In yews, wo may also progress In the
line of humanity. In tho crudo sec
tions of tho West thole Is lets rcgnrd
for life than In tho Kast, and as civi
lization proceeds, humanity takes tho
place of savagery. So It should ho In
tho Industrial world. We huvo
leached a high point with Inventions
nnd with tlmo-snWng machinery, and
It Is tlmo to take up the Idea that
human llfo Is entitled to moro consid
eration than stono nnd Iron, or tho
devices that aro lued to economise
time. Several of the countries of ICu-
lopa have established museums of
safety dovices where not merely moj
els uie shown, but "llvo" exhibits in

can bo demonstrated. If komo ono
of our wealthy philanthropists would

A YEAR'S PROGRESS ON THE
Tho progress or work during tho
J ear 1907 em the Panama Canal was
such as to conflim the leccnt estlnuito
of Seciolary Tart anil Colonel (loeth
uls that this great work will bo llu
ished In six yeais' time. During the
past twelvemonth there was excavat
ed along the line of the canal a total
of lG,"i;4,0Dr. cubic yards. Of this
amount, about 11.000,000 cubic
yards was removed by stenm shovels,
and over -I.S00.000 cubic yards by
dredges. The greatest results, of
course, were shown In tho Culelirn
division, from which alone over !),
000,000 cubic yards was taken out.
According to figures published In the
Canal Record, when tho work was
taken over by tho Americans from
tho French In May. 1901, It was esti
mated that C7.GOO.000 cubic yards
would have' to be removed from tho
canal pi Ism In the Culcbrn division
alone. At (the close of Inst year, of
that total amount, 12,800,000 cubic
yards hacUbeen excavated, leaving
44,800,000 cubic yards still to bo
removed. ' (t the present rate of prog
less can bo kept up, this work
should bo completed in less than live
vears. Thergrand total of all excava
tion, dry nnd wet. Inside nnd outside
the canal prism, completed since we
tool, control, Is 22,758,291 cubic
yards, and practically tho whole of
this has been done since January 1,
190C. when tho real work of excava
tion began. The totnl work of exca
vation done by tho French during
their ten years of active opeiatlon
was 8l.548,6oO cubic yards. The
amount of excavation In a given time
haa been steadily rising, and this Is a
most encouraging feature of tho
work. For tho first tlmo on record,
the 2,000,000 cubic ynrd limit of
monthly excavation was reached and.
Indeed, pasted. This occurred lu Dc
tembcr of last year, when 2,200,5119
cubic yards was removed. It now
seems ccitain that tho Culcbia cut
will not be the dctrmln.ng rnclnr in

My personal Judgment Is, Inasmuch
as Hawaii, If taken by u fprelgn
I Powci, would be a baso for attack
' on the Pacific Coast, It Is the mosi
i Impoitanl place to he put In a condi
tion of silting defence. It is more Im-
! portant in this regard than any
' place on tho coast.
I "No nation In tho world could con
duct a naval campaign i:o fnr fiom
homo as would bo necessary in the
Pacific without controlling Hawaii.
Consequently tho Pacific Coast will
be practically cafo so long ns we aro
able to keep an enemy fiom. taking
over Pearl Harbor. I think this year's
appropriation for this purposo will
, bo liberal enough to, meet tho vlows
