SMALL AS PLANNED.
OPINION OF NAVAL MEMBER OF
CANAL COMMISSION LATE
FROM THE ISTHMUS.
The locks of the projected Panama
canal must be made wider than they
were originally planned, in the opinion
of the naval member of the canal com
mission, Lieutenant and Civil Engineer
H. H. Rosseau, who arrived in Wash
ington direct from the isthmus. It
is presumed that he bore this mes
sage from the commission itself, al
though that fact could not be de
termined, owing to the departure of
the officer from Washington for New
York only a few hours from the time
of his arrival in Washington, just suf
ficient time here. In fact, to enable him
to lay his message before Secretary
Undoubtedly naval exigencies, sup
plemented by the building of the giant.
Cunarder Lusitania, were the basis for
the projected change of plan, which
will involve the expenditure of many
millions of dollars, and perhaps the
extension of the time estimated for
the completion of the canal project.
It is also probable that the mere sug
gestion of such a considerable change
of plans as that proposed by Lieuten
ant Rosseau would precipitate a gen
eral debate in congress and reopen the
whole issue of sea-level versus lock
canal, which was believed to have
been finally settled by President Roos
evelt and Secretary Taft when they
gave the order for the beginning of
work on the lock canal plan.
The fact is that when congress was
bo warmly discussing the two projects,
about two years ago, the sea-level
canal advocates made the point that
theirs was the only plan that would
have sufficient elasticity to meet the
needs of rapidly growing tonnage in
Their plan involved the use of but
one lock, merely to offset the tidal
difference between the eastern and
western seas, one comparatlcely low
and insignificant lock which could be
easily widened when required. But
they made a strong point of the dif
ficulty, expense and loss of time in
the use of the canal that would fol
low the attempt to widen the compli
cated and massive locks required for
the hlght level calan.
Possibly foreseeing the force of that
argument the canal commission appar
ently feels that it would be wise to
make the locks of the canal wide
enough in the beginning to accommo
date the giant ships, not only of the
navy, but of the merchant marine, that
are sure to be constructed in the near
Must Revise Many Plans.
The three commissions which have
dealt with the detailed plans of the
canal have each In turn been impress
ed with a necessity for enlarging the
capacity of the projected waterway,
and each commission has not hesitat
ed to-Increase the width of the canal
prisms and the size of the locks from
those planned by its predecessors.
Now the last commission goes even
beyond this by revising its own plans
before they have gotten beyond that
point in execution where It Is feasible
to do so without actual waste of
For up to this point substantially all
of the work that has been done upon
the isthmus has been upon the canal
prisms in the great Culebra cut, on
the 20-odd miles of lowlands and in
the bottoms of the harbors. Only the
ground has been cleared and the holes
dug for the great flights of locks In
cident to the plan, so that it Is merely
a matter of widening these founda
tions that is Involved in the last prop
Fortunately the canal prism Itself,
as projected In the plans now under
execution, will probably be wide
«nough at the narrowest point—Cule
bra section from Las Cadas to near
Paraiso, a distance of 4.7 miles, where
the minimum width is 200 feet, through
rock. But the locks themselves, origi
nally planned by the last commission
to be 200 feet long and 100 feet wide
at Oatun, were subsequently increased
by the engineers in their plan to a
width of 600 feet and a length of 1000
feet. It is a simple engineering task
to Increase the width and depth of the
canal prism at any time while the
canal is In operation, but the locks
cannot be broadened without seriously
interfering with the operation of the
canal and at great expense, owing to
their duplicate character.
Too Narrow for Big Ship*.
Already the dimensions of these
Iccks are being closely approached by
naval ships actually built or building,
and it is regarded as certain that the
Atlantic lines will in the near future
tiuild great turbine ships which could
never pass through the locks as here
tofore planned, and so would be well
nigh useless as naval auxiliaries in
time of war. The famous British bat
tleship Dreadnought, now afloat,
measures 83 feet in beam, and our own
Delaware class, two ships of which
class are building, will measure 85.3
feet beam. The 25,000-ton ship which
our naval designers are talking of
suggesting to congress will measure
88 feet In the clear, which would
leave only six feet clearance at the
sides of the locks under the existing
The facts have been laid before Sec
retary Metcalf, and it will be for him
tc make some recommendation to the
president in the matter.
Details of the new plans cannot be
obtained at present, but the change
is said to be costly, though of its
necessity few naval officers have any
ACTOR FOILS BLACKMAILERS
Arrest Two New York Men After Re
In the arrest of two men at the In
stigation of Raymond Hitchcock, star
in "A Yankee Tourist," at the Astor
theater, the police believe they are on
the trail of an extensive blackmailing
scheme. The men gave the names of
Hugo C. Voecks, aged 21, a Third ave
nue bartender, and Frank O. Thorn
berg, aged 19, second assistant paying
teller in the Bank of the Metropolis.
For eight months Hitchcock and his
wife, Flora Zabelle, have received let
ters threatening to Involve Hitchcock
in a scandal unless he gave up money.
Simultaneously New York news
papers have been "tipped off" to
stories relating to outrages practiced
on young girls by "a prominent Broad
While Hitchcock was in his dressing
room Voecks called to see Hitchcock.
Maurice Kirby, Hitchcock's former
manager, was in the dressing room.
When the caller became - insistent he
admitted him. Voecks called his at
tention to the stories in the papers and
said that unless he was given $1000
at once he would expose Hitchcock.
Hitchcock said he did not have the
money with him, but gave him three
rings worth $800 as security and ar
ranged to meet the man at 1 o'clock
the following day, redeem the rings
and give him $1000.
Hitchcock consulted detectives and
with Kirby met Voecks at the hour
agreed on, tendering him a $1000 bill,
demanding the rings in return. Voecks
did not have the rings with him and
refused the $1000 bill. He demanded
$1500 more, making $2500 in all, and
insisted the amount be paid in small
Hitchcock made another appoint
ment with Voecks. Two detectives
were hidden in his dressing room.
When Voecks appeared, Hitchcock
handed him $1000 in small bills and
his personal note for $1500 more.
Voecks still claimed he did not have
the rings. The detectives then stepped
out and arrested Voecks. He con
fessed and declared that he was trying
to get the money to educate his young
sister. Voecks also confessed that
Thornberg had the actor's ring and the
officers arrested Thornberg.

Is doubtless true, however, that the

more 20.000-ton battleships to com

struction, one division, it being con

most effective. If such ships are au
