TAFT IS TO S-IL
Plans Panama Trip From South Caro

Beverly, Mass., Oct. 13.-President
Taft will sail for the Isthmus of
Panama on November 10 from Char
leston. He will make the trip on
the armored cruiser North Carolina
and will be conveyed by the sister
ship, -the Montana. These are the
same vessels used by Mr. Taft in his;
Panama trip just before his inaugu
The president will be gone about 12
days. The North Carolina and Mon

direction in four days. This will give
Mr. Taft about four days on the
'1he president had practically given
<'p all idea of vis'.ting the canal this
year until Col. George W. Goethals,
-chief (-.gineer of the canal, spent two
hours with him this afternoon. At
the end of that tme Mr. Taft haJ
been convinced that the problems con

quire his p:scnce on the isthmns.
H1opez to Do Good.
Although his visit will be a flyin
one, the president expects to be able
to secure first hand information re
ga:ing a number of problems which
he will call to the attention of con
-gress at its next session. Some of
the problems to be dealt with are:
The extent ansl character of the for
tifications; the fixing of tolls for
transportion of vessels through the
,canal; a proposed increase in wages;
the future management of the Pana
ma railroad; the form of permanent
government for the canal zone, and
the regulation of the sale of coal at
the terminus. The government may
go into the business of selling coal it
self in order to prevent the possibil
ity of extortion or monopoly.
Mr. Taft had thought that several
of these questions would not require
settlement for a year or more but Col.
Goethals put matters in a different
Toll Question Important
The question of tolls, which it was
thought could wait until the canal is
-nearer completion, was explained by
'Col. Goethals to be one of the most
pressing for congress to meet. An
international conference of ship own
ers and shipping interests is to be
held in Berlin in the summer of 1911..
It is believed to be highly important
that congress should have fixed the
Tates of toll by that time. The author
ities believe that the influence that the
reanal will have upon shipping should
'be Lelt and be discussed at this con
Tierence. The canal must be made to
attract shipping and, at the same time
aneffort will be made to have the toll
'charges meet the interest on the $400,
000,000 investment which the canal
T.he date for opening the Panama
'canal has been set for January 11,
1915. President Taft and Col. Geo
thals believe that it will be completed
and open long before that time.
Mr. Taft will go to Cincinnati to
vote on November 8 and will proceed
from Cincinnati to Charleston. He
may stop over in Washington a few
hours on the way.

tsiWers and Is to0 be under the direc
tion of an engineer officer.
President Taft this evening said
thaat the paramoun: question in the
raising of the Maine is the determin
ing for all time of the cause of the
-explosion, and whether the source of
'destruction was from the outside or
inside .fhe vessel. For this reason he
desires that the work shall be retained
'in the -hands of the army engineers

If congress approves the recom
mendation of the engineers, the wreck

ceremonial burial in deep waLter, there
to refnain until the end of time.
Gen. William P. Bixby, chief of en
gineers of the army, spent an hour
with the president this afternoon and.
after explaining the plans for the re
moval of the wreck in detail secured
the president's idrmal approval in
Gen. Bixby later issued a statement,
'which ontlina the work to be under

be comple:ed within three months and
it is his opinion that Habana harbor
will be clear of the wreck by Feb
ruary 15, next.
If the wreckage of the forward part
ot the vessel is in a condition to per
mit of definite conclusions, the cause
of the destruction of the ship on
February 15. 1S98, will have been de
termined probably by the middle of
January. No portion of the wreck is
to be distributed until a full opportu

Congress recently appropriated
S300,000 for raising and removing
the wreck. The army engineers vis
ited Habana some time ago and be
gan an examination both of The
wreck and the various plans suggest
ed for its removal.
In his signed indorsement approv
ing the plans for the removal of
wreck, President Taft says in part:
"I believe congress intended that
this work should be done as promptly
as possible and also under such con
ditions that information as exact as
possible should be secured in respect
to the cause of the explosion and
that the considerations have more
weight in determining the plan of
procedure than even those of econ
omy. To retain complete control of
the work in the hands of the army en
gineers will strengthen public confi
dence in the result shown."
