H-y -,.- PRESIDENT LAYS MEMORIAL STONE Mr. Wilson Shows Skill with Trowel at Arlington Amphitheater. SPEECH BY MR. DANIELS Ceremonies Mark Beginning of Erec tion of $750,000 Building in Honor of Nation's Heroes. President Woodrow Wilson yesterdav morning with trowel, level, and hammer laid tho earner stone of the Arlington Memorial Amphitheater, the J75O.O00 struc ture belns raised in the silent city in "rccofrnltion of the grand democracy of tba dead." The President wielded the trowel with the skill of a mason, placing the mortar upon the stone and spreading it in an adroit manner. He then directed a force of workmen in the work of setting the stone in place. When It was set he trued it with a spirit level and indicated the completion of the completion of the task by tapping each side of the stone with a mahogany gavel. Ab the formal laying of the corner atone ended a flag was run to the top of the crane that had set the block in place and the Fifth Cavalry Band play ed "The Star Spangled Banner." The principal address was by Secre tary of the Navy Daniels: Danteln Speaks. "This is a substantial symbol, expres sive of the national appreciation of valor." he said. "It is a recognition of the grand democracy of the dead. Its prime purpose Is that the memory of the least of those who lay down their lives for love of country may be saved from oblivion. May the day never dawn when highest genius and the acme of art are not dedicated to the task of awaking from "sleeping mirhle' the heroic figure of the citizen-soldier, or of symbolizing in massive stone the country's gratitude to her defenders. May the day never come when the deeds of our nat.onal heroes shall not be voiced by the elo quence of men or their graves be wet by the tears of women.' More than 10.000 members of patriotic organizations and others interested in the corner-stone laying were present. On tho platform with President Wilson and Sec retary Daniels were the members of the amphitheater commission, prominent G. A. R. veterans. Lieut. Gen. Nelson A. Miles. Chaplain Couden. of the House, William F. Gude, chairman of the G. A. A. encampment comniittte. and about 200 invited guests. The invocation was by Bishop Earl Cranston, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, a civil war veteran. Judge Ivorv G. Kimball. pa?t commander of the De partment of the Potomac, G. A.

ENGINEER EXPLAINS PLAN James Craig Says Mountains Must Be Cut Down to Keep Canal Open. By .CYRIL II. BRETHERTOX. Some thirteen hundred feet of the Pan ama Canal has been partially mica d the last slide, according to a cable re- reived in Washlneton yesterday from MhI V. a. Knees. Chief of Corps of En- Bineerinsr, V. S. A., and now In charge of ihi. wort- of rlearinz the waterway, rne slide 3 In the Culebra Cut. at Gold Hill and Contractors Hill. Somp two hundred feet of the channels are filled to such an extent that the width of' tht? channel is reduced to 23 feet and the denth to from three to fifteen feet In theist week over 100.000 cubic feet of dirt hae been dredged out. but the slide movement has continued with the result that the channel is no nearer to being cleared than It was a week ago. The cable nnnears to indicate that dirt is sliding into the channel from both sides. At the point where the slide has oc curred, the canal runs between banks or palisades the result of excavation from JO to 4'0 feet in height. It appears that these banks cannot hold up under the weight of the mountain masses behind them with the result that they break away and slide into the canal or torce the bed of the canal up between them. Army engineers evidently expect addi tional slides to occur until the presure Is relieved by the excavation or dredging away of a great part of the earth masses that cause it. CralB Tells of Plan. At the War Department no one could be found who was -willing to make a statement on the subject either as to the length of time during which the canal will be closed or as to the measures that will finally have to be undertaken to keep the waterway open. It was admitted, however, that from a military and naval point of lew. the possible closing of the canal for a space of many months was a matter of grave concern. According to James G. Craig, for many years a traveling engineer of the Panama Canal and Panama Railroad, the freedom of the canal from slides could only be secured by cutting down the mountains on either side of the Culebra Cut. the weight of which causes the slides to occur. This can be done, it appears, either by cutting1 down the mountain tops, the dirt be ing dug out by shovels and carried away on cars; or by "shooting" the dirt into the channel and removing it with dredges. The latter method, it appears, is the one that MaJ. Gen. GoethaU contem plates using. Mr. Craig, however, be lieves that ultimately the dirt trains will have to be put back in use. Ac cording to his belief the mountains are cracked for half a mile back from the canal and will continue to slide, un less the pressure Is relieved, indefi nitely. Mr. Craig estimates that the tops of the mountainn-can be cut dawn to a point where the canal will be immune from further slides In a period of from nine months to a year. No official esti mate of the length of time during which traffic is to be interrupted has been given. MaJ. Boggs declares It to be impossible to predict this particu larly as the heavy rains will seriously affect the situation. Sailings by the Panama route, however, have been of ficially advised against by MaJ. Gen. Goethals which Indicates that the canal will be blocked for a consider able time. WILL PRINT SCHOOL REPORT.
