ing New Waterway May
Washington, Nov. IS. Sometime next
summer or rn.ii, no exact date being spe
cified, a. vessel will pass from tho Atlantic
to tho Pacific across whnt Is now the
IfthmiiH of Panama, which consequently
must rtlsnppenr from tho world's Beo
ftrnphy nnd hy tho same hiimtm aKcncy,
tho western licmlnplic.ru will be divided
into two continents. Tho vessel will not
be the Oregon nor .mv other famous
ship, but will bo ono of the many small
water croft In dolly use by the canal
builders: nnd probably tho only passenger
will bo Col. George W. fioothals, and the
start of American engineers, who for tho
jiaft elfrht years havo been carrying on
the greatest engineering work tho world
has ever seen. It will be later than that,
anywhere from fix months to a year per
haps, before tho formal opening of the
voterway will take placo and a navnl
fleet, headed by the famous old Oregon,
will pass through Into the western ocean,
nnd the canal may bo fairly said to be
open to trade.
Theso facts are not of ofllclal record as
yet; tho date of January 1, 1915, still
stands for the opening predicted by
Colonel Goethals. nut that the opening
will be anticipated to a great extent has
been promised by the canal builders in J
unofficial statements, and now comes a
clear Intimation of their ptirposo to
vance tho opening dato. In the annual
report of the canal commission, Just
published. It is disclosed while tho com
pletion of the great locks by January 1
noxt will not bo possible, owing to con
tract delays, within six months thereafter
the channel will be finished, while the
Insure the safe passage of the locks, the
contractor has been called upon to finish
the gates In one flight first, so that If
the rest of the work is In condition
passage of ships can bo permitted with
out waiting for the completion of the
other flights. This statement will be
understood, when It is known that the
great loc's are being bulltlndupllcate; side
by side, not only to add to tho capacity
of the canal but to insure its contlnuancu
In operation In care of a serious ac
cident to a ship In ono of tho locks.
The report shows a most satisfactory
Mate of progress of the whole great work
though In lew of the fact that It Is dated
September 10 last, the figures regarding
excavation, placing of concrete, erection
of dams and locks and subsidiary works
are not as recent as those contained In
the regular monthly reports. Naturally
the most Interesting feature of the re
port relates to the operations In tho great
I'ulebra Cut. Here, great landslides,
many ranking with an Alpine avalanche
In magnitude, have so Increased tho
amount of material to bo excavated,
that were It not found possible to steadily
reduce tho cost per yard of dredging
nnd steam shovelling through the grow
ing expertness of tho employes, and im
proved engineering methods, the total
cost of excavation would have been vast
ly greater than the estimates. During the
last year nearly 16,60i),0W cublo yards of
earth were taken out o tills cut, leaving
rearly 12,OuO,000 to be displaced before
'ho canal can be opened. The damage
causijd by the slides may le appreciated
from the fact that nearly C.OOO.UOO yards
of earth excavated was so composed or
nearly 56 per cent of the total excava

able time of ono minute and forty
eight seconds. Incidentally it appears
that to make those gates, the Iron
workers must drive and head 6,760,000
rlvots. Tho pivots of these great looks
are being made of a special grade of
steol and bronze, not only for strength
but to protect them against corrosion,
a very necessary precaution In view
of the fact that they will always be
submerged In sea water after tho
canal Is opon. To guard against gal
vanic action, zlno rings are also
placed on the bronse bushings.
POWEBPUli TURDlNKfl UBED.
To supply the power to operate the
gates and sluice valves in the locks, and
furnish current for the monster electric
locomotives which are to tow the steam
ships through tho locks, a great hydro
electric station In being erected ndjacont
to the spillway In Qatun dam. Thofe are
three 2,XrO kilowatt water turbines, and
three 2.000 kilowatt generators with suit
able exciters and other auxiliaries. There
will bo enough available water from the
storage In Lake Oatun to warrant the
Installation of 6,000 kilowatts, though in
the dry season It will bo necessary to
draw upon the storage. Altogether It is
figured that for this electric work seven
per cent of thn minimum water system
of the canal will be required. A part of
tho electricity Is to be used for lighting
tho line of tho canal. There will bo con
crete lamp-poets 100 feet apart through
out the entire length of each look wall.
Altogether 7,0oo lamps will bo Installed at
Outside of tho canal proper, tho re
port shows that work has beon golnn
on rapidly In preparing harbors for
tho shelter of ships at each end of the
waterway. Tho work of fortification

"alf 11 million ynrilB of concrete having
been placed In tho mortar pits anl
gun emplacements during the last
year. The sanitation of the Isthmus
ad-lalso has been malntalnel at the high
level set by Col. William C. Ooorgns
tho chief sanitary officer, from tho be
ginning. Contrary to tho common impression
the sanitary work In the way of clear

28.818 acres in the tract are kept
clear for sanitary purposes and almost

There Is only one way to deal with
theso slides, and that Is to dig them
out as they occur, though some help
Is gained by terracing tho upper
banks. That Is because the geological
formation changes so frequently nnd
suddenly that n6 other effoctlvo treat
ment has boen found. So unstahle is
the earth that the material In one part
of tho cut begins to move on an In
clination as low s 1 on 7, owing to
the mass of a stratified rock sliding
over a layer of lignite. One slldo now
In motion, near tho bridge of Culebra,
covers nn area of 63 acres, from
which 2, riO.OOO yards have already
been removed, leaving 1,300,000 still
to he hnndled.
Then there Is another little slldo of
no less than 50 acres on the opposito
side of the canal. Tho result of theso
earth movements, which are quite ex
ceptional In engineering practice, has
been to leave the canal In Its deepest
portion?, with very flat slopes. Thn
encouraging feature of the heavy work
nt that point Is found in tho state
ment In tho report "that none of tho
slides which occurred during the year
would havo Interfered with the pas

OF BEE INDUSTRY
Prof. M. B. Chimmings Lands Lit
tle Hummer before Bee Keep
era and Horticultural Society.
Mlddlebury. Nov. "The Honsy
Boo In Horticulture" was tho subject
of an Interesting paper read to-night
by Prof, M. B. Cummlngs, of liurllng
ton, at the Joint session of the Dee
Keepers and Horticultural society.
The address of welcome was deliver
ed by Judgo C. I. Dutton of Middle
bury and Prosldent Hollott respond
ed. W. 0 Lara lice of Shorehnm spoke
on "Car of Bees for Orchard Pur
poses." Prof, Cummlng said In part
It Is a significant thing that Addi
son county, which Is ono of the
greatest apple counties In Vermont, is
alBo tho center of the bee Industry In
this State. It may be an Incident that
the boo men are prosperous In this
section but It Is no Incident that fruit,
growers are also prosperous here. A
man may pruno his trees to Increase
their vigor, spray them to kill the
pests, fortlllzo to incroaso tho quantity
of fruit and till to savo moisture,
but if he ha no bees to fortlllzo tho
blossoms, ho will havo no crop to har
vest. What Is truo of orchard fruits Is
in general also truo of many of the
vegetables from tho garden and of the
flowers about the house. Let us sec
the reason for these very sweeping
Many of our fruit trees produce
blossoms which are not fertile of
themselves, such as certain varieties
of apple, pear, plum and cherry, many
varieties of tho strawberry and the
squash, pumpkin, cucumber and melon
of our vogotnhlo gardens. For tho
production of soed and tho consentient
development of edible portions, tboro
must be a mixturo of the sexual ele
ments of blossoms, involving pollln-
fltion and cross-fertilization. Even
with the plants which are fertllo on
themselves, tho fruits will be very
largely seedless, of Irregular ahnpe
or Inferior size without the stimulat
ing effect of cross-fertlllzatlon.
Although many Insects are extremelv
useful in the crossing of plnnts. the
honeybee is chief among them all and
re.-ponsinie lor over 80 rer cent, of the
totnl number of cross-polllnatlons. Roes
are attracted to tho blossoms of nur
horticultural plants cither through the
presence of nectar, fragrnnce of the blos-
om, or the bright colors. These entlclntr
features correspond to tho showy shop
miKiuws ui cuy morcnants. in search for
nectar, the bees unconsciously render a
great service to the plants because their
bodies becomo covered with pollen which
Is transferred from plant to plant fol
lowing tho nomadic travels of these little
creatures. It has been proven again and
agnln to the satisfaction of many different
individuals that where the bees aro pre
vented from visiting the blossoms on
fruit plants do not set. It is also general
ly known that In seasons when thero Is
much rain during the blossoming Foason,
the set of fruit Is very .Ight. This means
that the bees have little opportunity to
perform their beneficiary service,
I notice In this hall this splendid ex
hibit of fruit and vegetables and I know
full well that the display would have
been absolutely impossible without tho
ngency of bees. The roll that these lit
tle, fellows play Is far In excess of that
played by any ordinary operation con
ducted by man for the welfare of his
fruit tree and vegetable plants.
Notwithstanding tho many advantages
und the absolute necessity of the domes
ticated bee in relation to horticultural
productions, there Is another side which
must bo mentioned. Thu honeybee is
h great factor In plant hygiene and
orchard and garden sanitation. Sum
of tho hard problem of the present
day horticulturists hnve to do with the
maintenance of health and the control
of disease. Many orclmrd and gaiden
diseases aro distributed by bees These
little creutures will visit diseased plants
while in search for food and aw as
likely to carry the spores of dlsedse as
they are to carry grains of pollen In
the visitation of flowers. The brown lot
of plumr. the blight of pears, the wilt
of cucumbers, aro familiar illustrations
of diseases which are widely distributed
by liees and other Insects. Thus vvc so
tho possibility of the harmful effects of
bees if the orchard man or gaidener
Is curelcj-s enough to allow the above
mentioned maladies to become establish
cd within his plantations.
Thu important point to grasp In this
ccnncctlon Is this: Every effort must be
made to eliminate unhealthy specimens
of any kind which make possime tno dis
tribution nf diseases through the agency
Thero Is still another serious aspect to
tho present proposition. According to tho
United States census thero lias been In
Vermont a rapid decrease In the domesti
cated bee. During the paft ten years
there has been a decrease of over W per
cent. Less thnn four farms In over a
hundred reported bees in 1910. As drover
Cleveland onco wisely remarked, "We
are facing a condition of seriousness."
We should keep more rather thnn fewer
bees and not let this dwindling beo popu
lation Jeopardize our horticultural opera
tions. The speaker said that thero should bo
a rave of bees for ever)' acre of fruit or
vegetables, and showed by mentis of lan
tern slides many Interesting polntH In con
nection with the structure of fiowors and
tees, and the relation and adaptation of
Insects and plants.
THE DEER SEASON.
County Game Warden Reeve Had
Reports of 36 Killed.
Only 25 deer wore reported shot
to County Oame Warden J. B. Reoves
during the first threo days of tho open
season. This is a much smaller number
than In previous years, but the game Is
plentiful and the total number to b
killed In the State will probably bo
folly as large as usual by the end of
the season. The deer have become alarm
