CANAL WILL REDUCE
"HIGH LIVING COST
Commissioned' of Australia
Says His (fountry Can
Ship Mutton Here.
Cheaper meat .will be orio of the re
ulti of the Panama canal, according to
the opinion of Sir George Held, high
commissioner of Australia In London,
who left ."Washington today for New
York, after a stay of Several days In
the National .Capital. The 'reason of
this prediction, says Sir-George, Is the
ease with which cattlo can then ba
brought to the Eastern markets from
Australia, the great sheep nntf cattlo
"It will doubtless be surprising to
most people hero to know that we havo
In Australia nearly twice as many
sheep as there are In the United States,"
said BIr Oeqrge, "but that ls a fact.
In the United States there "ore about
(5,000,000 head of, sheep; In Australia
more than 06,000,000.
Increases Stock Raising.
'"There can be no doubt that with the
shortening of the distance from Aus
tralia to the American ntarkets by th
Panama canal, a great Impetus will be
given to shipping and raising cattle,
eyen with the tariff In this country as
high as It Is. No. we have made no
plans as yet. but now that the cannl Is
almost complete, I am sure the matter
will be given consideration at once."
SJr- George spent yesterday morning
at Congressional Library, and went
through the. testimony with regard to
the Panama canal. .lie did not care to
discuss this question. tIJo was deHghted
with the library bulldlitg. which he de
clared one of the most beautiful and
artistic he had ere,r seen. '
",8Ir George" was given a banquet yes

' ! The Hotel Powhatan, "Washington's
'fewest hostelry, ,- will be formally
"opened with a grand reception of guests
and visitors next Saturday. ,
The management of the Powhatan has
prepared an elaborate opening program,
which Includes music by im orchestra
of thlrty-)lv pleccD, anS songs by a

class cabaret vaudeville act will also be
seen In 'the .grill room.
The management requests all guests
and visitors to keep to the magnificently

an Inspection of tho entire hotel.

thVflther hotels of the Canltul Cltv. and
has, many unique and Interesting fea
lures. Among" tnese is a wonaenuuy
decorated American Indian grill room,

other Indian curios will be seen. ,
On the opening night the manage
ment will present to every lady present
a handsome souvenir. The gentlemen
guests will also be remembered with a
