The committee upont ten days look

was there two jears ago, ami while
expecting to see much, wm surprised
at the progress made In the Interval.
Ilu Hld that It looked as thoiiKh
tho waterway would be open for busi
ness In the latter part of 1!H3, eight
een months tooner than was antici
pated. Ho thinks It will be Mulshed
within the estimated $37.".,O0O,0m).
The Culcbra cut, ho said, will have
cost about $10,000,000 a mite. It Is
about nine and a half miles long.
He praUcd the dlsdptluc and morale
of tho force, ami said the health of
tho laborers compaicd favorably with
tli.tt of any body of men In the tern
potato zono, nnd they were bettor fed,
belter paid and better cared for than
any men engaged In similar work la
the United States.
"1 do not see," said Senator llmn
degee, "how prlvato steamship lines
can be organized to enter tho canal
until tho tolls are Ilxcd; but I am
against government ownership, except
us a last resort."
Tho eommnndcr-ln-clilef of tho Pa
cific riect, llear-Admlral Thomas, has
mado n preliminary report to tho
Nary Department, Hinting that tho re
view of tho mobilized naval forces In:
tho Pacific has been satisfactorily
completed, and that n high stato of.
efficiency vu demonstrated. I
Senators Smith and Work and Itcp
rcM'ntathc Stephens vvcro present,'
upon tho Invitation of the Secretary,'
nnd visited tho various vessels, le-
ceivlng the customary honors as ft
committee of Congress.
Without apparent piovocatlou, Sec
retary WlUon of tho Department of.
Agriculture has taken Issue with a,
popular fancy, which ho says In so
many vvoids Is a popular fallacy.
Tho Secretary sent broadcast to tho
newspapers an interview with him
self, In which ho nns. "livery Im
portant meteorological ehango that
occurred In the Putted States during
tho j ear was forecast by tho Weather
Ilureau long In udvaiuc. Storm warn
ings to lake, senco.ist and West In
dian stations, and frost warnings for
tho sugar, trucking, tobacco, fruit and
cranberry regions were Issued when
ever conditions Justified. Thcso warn
ings were successful ' Particular at
tention was given to tho hurricanes
of September and October, 191", and
a number of testimonials commending
the work of tho bureau In connection
therewith wcro received. The warn
ings of tho approach of cold waves
resulted In tho saving of growing
crops, nnd provenled Injury to many
shipments of perishable goods uud lo

It N ollklally dcclnred that no
change will be made ut ptesent In'
the color of the service uniforms of
the army That question lias been un
der seilous lonslileratlon by tho mili
tary authorities for scvctiil months,
ami thotougli tests have been made to
deteimlne tho best color of unlfonns
and eiiuipmcnt for military purposes.
Tests were made by medical officers
In the Philippines to determine the
lelntlve absorption of solar heat by
olive drali and khaki cotton cloths,
They lepoited that tho new olive drab
uniform material was not u good one
for use In times of peace In the Mop
les, nnd that tho khaki tolored fabric
was much cooler. It was admitted by
tho lncdleal officer, however, that tho
lelattvo Invisibility of olive drub uni
forms might compensate In ii calm
palgn for tliclr Increased absorption
"From n sanitary point of view,"
said the repmt, "any change mado
should be in the direction of a lighter
shade rather than a darker one. If
tiny piotertlon ag.iiust chemical rays
Is needed (which Is by no means
proved l, it should not ho gained by
using dark outer garments."
ltegardlng these views, tho Quarter-master-tlcueral
rcmat ked that Invisi
bility of the uniforms Is of llrst liu
poitnncc, and that tho olive drub ma
terial fades from view much sooner
Hum the nld-stjlc khaki cloth Ho
argued that ns the accoutrements of
the soldier, Buch ns knapsack, blanket
roll, etc., arc of tho snuio shade as
tho woolen uniform, they do not make
tho sumo contrast as the khaki.
As n further ndvantago of the wool
en material, he said, It does not show
soli as Boon as khaki and requires
less laundering. Tho Quurtcrninster
Ccneral recommended that no chungo
bo mndo unless It bo tho adoption of
gray as tho color of tho uniform.
Tho expression of thcso views 10
sultcd In further tests at tho West
Point Military Academy to determine
tho comparative Invisibility of tho
cadet gray uud olive drab uniforms.
According to tho superintendent, It
was found that with tho light giecn
background of early spring the cadet
gray cloth Is less visible than the
olive iliub, but that with all other
backgrounds, such as the snow back
ground, between now and cuily spring,
during tho full-leaf period of spring
and early summer and a typical fall
background, tho olive drub cloths ato
less visible than tho cadet gray.
These various repot ts resulted In u
decision to make no ehango In the
material of tho service uniforms ut

An aerial station Is soon to be es

While nothing dellnlta lias been given
out from tho Signal Corps ofllce at the

that an itcioplano will bo sent to tho
