Discussion of the Board of Con
sulting Engineers on Sea
Levels vs. Locks.
Washington, Sept. 1.Eminent engi
neers of America and Europe met today
on the call of President Roosevelt, to in
vestigate and make recommendations as
to the tvpe of canal for Panama.
By executive order a board of consult
ing engineers was constituted last June
consisting of General George W. Davis,
Alfred Noble, William Barclay Parsons,
William H. Burr, General Henry L.
Abbott, Frederick P. Stearns, Jo
seph Ripley, Osham Randolph, all
American engineers Henry Hunter,
nominated by the British government
Herr Eugene Tincauzer, nominated by
the German government M. Guerard,
nominated by the French government
M. Quellenec, consulting engineer, Suez
canal, and J. W. Welcker, nominated by
the government of the Netherlands. It
is this board which assembled today.
The members were met by Chairman
Shonts, who in a few words appropriate
to the occasion, expressed the belief
that good results would follow.
The board has had referred to it all
the data that has been collected by the
commission bearing on the subject of a
type of canal. This data may be suf
ficient for the board to determine
whether the canal should be constructed
with locks or should be a sea-level canal,
and if the former should be recommen
ded, then details'as to the character
of locks will be taken under discussion.
The recommendations of the consult
ing engineers will not be final, but will
be made to the isthmian canal commis
sion. The final conclusion as to the
type of canal will be settled by the
president and congress.
The board may visit the isthmus if
While the engineering work of the ca
nal will be under the immediate super
vision of Chief Stevens, he will be as
sisted by a committee on engineering,
consisting of Generals Hain and Ernst,
Admiral Endicott and Major Harrod,
who are also members of the commis
sion. Such problems of a technical char
actor as Chief Stevens desires to be
worked out, and on such subjects as he
desires advice, will be submitted to this
committee. These problems will not be
numerous until after the type of canal
has been determined.
Pay of the Advisory Board.
The president has signed an executive
order fixing the compensation of the
members of the advisory board of engi
neers. The government will pav their
personal expenses. Each member of the
board will receive $5,000 on the com

Rounds Out the Dominion.
The admission of the two new prov
inces, Alberta today and Saskatchewan
on Monday, rounds out the Dominion of
Canada. The family of the provinces is
now complete. Of unorganized terri
tory, there only remain the districts
lying between the northern limits of
the existing provinces and the Arctic
ocean, which will shortly be divided
among the provinces to whose borders
they are contiguous and the Yukon
territory, whose destiny is probably in
corporation with the province of "Brit
The Dominion, which at the date of
confederation (July 1, 1867) numbered
only four provinces, bordering the
shores of the Atlantic and the Great
Lakes, now numbers nine provinces,
extending to the Pacific and towards
the Arctic. The last occasion that a
province was admitted to the confed
eration was in 1873, when Prince Ed
ward island came in.
Star of Empire Shifting.
The admission of the two new prov
inces marks the political as well as
the material changes which are occur
ring in Canada. As has been the case
in the United States, the center of po
litical power in Canada is shifting
westward. Soon the original provinces
will be politically but a minor factor
instead of the predominating power in
the Dominion. In area, the new prov
inces dwarf most of the older prov
inces. Alberta contains 253,540 square
miles and Saskatchewan 250,650 square
miles, whereas the area in square miles
of Prince Edward island is but 2,148
of Nova Scotia, 21,428 of New Bruns
wick, 27,985 of Manitoba, 73,732. Even
the great province of Ontario, with Its
area of 260,862 square miles, almost has
to "take a back seat" in territorial
extent to these new provinces.
In population, also, the eastern prov
inces will soon be insignificant as com
pared with these rapidly growing young
giants of the west. According to the
census of 1900, the population of the
territory which is now Alberta was 72,-
841 of the territory which is now Sas
katchewan, the population was 91,460.
But so large has been the influx of im
migration to the Canadian west the
past five years, that the acts of parlia
ment creating the new provinces credit
them with a population of 250,000 each.
Already they each exceed popula
tion the provinces of Prince Edward
Island and British Columbia and they
'almost equal in population everv other
province except Ontario and Quebec.
The new provinces start their career
with ten members each in the federal
house of commons, compared with
Prince Edward JstandpSs four, British
Columbia's seven, Manitoba's ten, New
Brunswick's thirteen and Nova Scotia's
eighteen. At each decennial redistribu
tion of the representation, they will
,enormously increase their proportion of
The population of the new provinces
is of an entirely different class from the
population of the older provinces. The
new differs from the old in race, in
sentiment and in traditions as, also, in
commercial interest. It is in this re
spect that the inauguration of these
new provinces is of special interest to
the United States.
In the year ending June 30, 1905, the
number of immigrants to Canada from
the United States was 43,543 in 1904,
the number was 45,229 in 1903, 49,473.
In 1903 the number of immigrants from
the United States exceeded the num
ber from the British isles. During
those three years, the number of
United States immigrants to Canada
was 138,245, as compared with 157,525
from England, Wales, Scotland and Ire
land. In that period, the settlers from
the United States have constituted
from 35 to 40 per cent of Canada's total
And almost the entire settlement
from the United States has been di
rected to these two new provinces of
Alberta and Saskatchewan,, whereas the
remainder of the immigration has been
scattered thruout the whole Dominion.
Of the present population of the two
provinces, it is safe to say that 25 per
cent are of United States origin.
The new provinces commence their
autonomous career under favorable aus
pices. The dominion is prosperous the
western prairies this year have been fa
vored with magnificent crops. Alberta
and Saskatchewan will enter on their
provincial life in a~ spirit of content
and enthusiasm. Now that they have
an assured revenue and the power to
pledge their corporate credit ft"" pub
lic works, they will be able to under
take more extensive plans for their own
development and their progress mav
consequently be expected to be more
rapid than when they were in a condi
tion of financial and political tutelage
to the federal government.
Haultain's Work Cut Out.
In spite of some symptoms of revolt
in the liberal party when the autonomy
bills were first introduced, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, thanks to his solid Quebec sup
port, was strong enough to oe able to
whip his recalcitrant followers into line
and the separate school clauses were
carried by large majorities. There is,
nevertheless, a strong feeling against
this limitation of their provincial pow
ers in the new provinces. Mr. Haultain,
the premier of the territories, strongly
opposed this feature of the proposed
constitution and has announced his in
tention of endeavoring to have this
provision declared unconstitutional by
the courts. The northwest school ques
tion is therefore, apparently, not yet
definitely settled and the legislatures
increase the value of these lands. It is a great a thorny subject to OCCUpy their atten-
opportttnlty for the homeseeker or investor

the new provinces are likely to have
tion as soon as they are elected.
It is altogether likely, tho, that Mr.
Haultain may not have an early op
portunity of carrying this matter to
the courts. He has been premier four
teen years. He has conducted the gov
ernment of the territories on a non
partizan basis including both liberals
and conser\ atives in his cabinet. He
had a large popular nfajority in the
territorial assembly which goes out of
existence with the coming into force
of the new constitution.
It would be assumed that heT

naturally be called upon to form a gov

after the new order of things goes into

tion and the probabilities are that he

provinces, being appointed by the Laur
ier government, are, naturally, liberals.
It is assumed that in selecting their
first executive councils, they will call
upon liberals to serve. This will give
the two new provinces each a liberal
premier and when the first elections
are held it is assumed that the power of
patronage the liberal party will thus
have provincial affairs, aided by the
patronage it has in federal affairs, will
be sufficient to insure the new govern
ments being sustained at the polls, in
spite of the popular feeling against the
separate school provisions of the new

is really responsible for securing auton

in the cold so far as office is concerned,
He will probablv be elected for a con
stituency in one of the new assemblies
but other men being in control of the
executive power, he will not be able to
carry out his intension of taking the
school question into the courts until he
can succeed in turning the new govern
ment out of power.
Tho new governments, being liberal,
are scarcely likely to foment trouble for
their party at Ottawa by raising this
issue themselves. The fact that the
new governments will probably be lib
erals, means, also, the probable intro
duction of party politics into the new
assemblies. The non'partizan system,
