A most extraordlnaiy recovery of sight has just taken place in Seward. Sometime ago Bruce McNutt got hit in the eye with a bit of flying rock and the eye seemed to have been com i pletely smashed out. 1 be doctors even probed right through the eyeball to the very back of the eye and no one j thought the sight had the least chance of coming back. Even Mr. Me Nutt himself became resigned and took his medicine with fine fortitude, but today the sight has so far been recovered that he can distinguish be i tween a man’s collar and tie while looking at him. That is, he can dis tinguish it by using only the injured optic.

Goethals ofv the Canal Zone, who withdrew his resignation and hurried back here from Washing ton to clear the Canal of the Gaillard Cut landslides last September, is ex* pected to reofTcr his resignation to j President Wilson if there is no prom ise of further trouble following the reopening of the Canal today. Colonel Harding, who has been act ing governor during GoethaPs absence in the United States, is expected to succeed Colonel Goethals as governor, when the timo comes. Goethals has not announced that he will reoffer his resignation, but his associates here feel sure he will be cause he asked to be retired undew the army retirement rule before, think ing hi3 work in completing the canal was done. The earth movements blocking the canal began last September, about the time Goethals offered his resignation to President Wilson in Washington. At news of the trouble, which pre vented the passage of the Atlantic fleet, which was to have attended the opning of the Panama-Pacific Ex position, Goethals asked the Presi dent not to act on his resignation, and in October he hastened back to n * ! Panama. | The canal builder faced a task j slightly less gigantic thijn the one he faced in finishing the big project rt i self. Millions of tons of rock and ; earth have been torn fro mthe collaps ] ed excavations under GoethaPs dircc | tion, employing bigger dredges and steam shovels than ever were used be fore. Construction work at the terminals j also has been completed in the mean time and when the big ships begin to pass through the canal today, it will be more advanced in equipment, more "polished” than it ever has been. It will be able to handle ships much more expeditiously than heretofore. It is not considered improbable that there will be small slides from time to time, but no more big ones are looked for and what there may be are ex pected to diminish in size from year to year. There is believed to be no danger from earthquakes. Goethals says the defenses of the canal zone are adequate to repel any enemy. NOTICE.
