"The facts and figures of tho cmml,
as far as they relate to Australasia,
olfcr so little encouragement that It is
with relief that wo tut n to other as
pects of tho great undertaking. Tho
utility of tho canal to tho Irado be
tween tho west coast of South Amer
ica anil the Kastein Slates, mid be
tween llruzll nml tho Argentine and
the Western Stales will bo enormous.
New Orleans and tho cotton and tim
ber ports or tho fiulf or Mexico
should derive sonio benefit from It.
Tho canal will, If the tariff Ih modcr-i
ate, have a marked Influence on tho
trndo between the KiiBtorii mid West
ern Slates and on tho Brain trado or
California and Oiognn, nml even of
northwest Canada. Hut It must lie
borne in mind that, with the excep
tion or the grain and tho United
States domestic trades, tho Panama
railway has hitherto been ablo to
copo with tho iibovo mentioned tradog,
carrying the goods ncrosB tho Isthmus
at about 7s fid per ton freight. If tho
canal rntoH show n saving on this
amount, trado (tho frolfilit-payer and
frelght-oainor between them) will
benollt correspondingly. Hut If the
rales aro ton high, and tho Panama
railway Is closed down, then Irado
will ho discouraged and driven to find
on outlet In other directions. Sup
posing that tho Panama rates aro fix
ed at tho old Suez rates, say, 6s a ton
of a ship's gross tonnage, anil that tho,
railway rates aro about 9s a ton, in
eluding the cost of transhipment for!
every ton or cargo, then u ship using
tho canul would show no saving in'
freight, unless tho cargo carried were
in oxcosh or 01.1 per cont. or hor gross
tonnage. Tho larger tho proportion
or the cargo carried to tho ship's ton
nage, the greater would bo tho advau-

"Tho most Important function of tho
Panama Canal, however, will bo to en
eblc tho United StatcH fleet to move
at short notice from tho Atlantic to
the Paclllc Oceans. Its greatest vnluo
Is strategic. When the I'nltod States
undertook the gigantic task or joining

disease may perhaps, like tuberculosis,
be transmitted by tho nasal sputum of

that, according to theso data, a sneez

Mr. Dole, In driving that the disease
is easy to aciiilre, cites the case of
husbands and wives who remain un
