ALBUQUEKQLE KVENIA'G 0 ZEN .1 1 3 f i .Li uuai ur CANAL GROWS EACH YEAR Colonel Goethals Tells Why First Estimates Are Vague. Is Guess Work Even Now. Washington, Jai 30. I'hc wonder Is growing among senators and rep resentatives on what basis it was that the original estimators fixed the prob able cost of the digging of the Pan ama Canal. There is a half-way suspicion that the llrwt estimators either didn't know their business or else were afraid to give but a truth that they thought might be appall ing. With the characteristic biunlness of a snidier.CoI. V. (loethals has said that he can but guess at the total cost of the canal, but that he thinks it will not exceed $250,000,000, ex cluding the original purchase price. As another hua put It, "the estima ted cost of the Panama Canal keeps pace in the ascending scale with the cost of living. Every year the price the United States will have to pay for the waterway Is marked up." The first estimates put the cost as low as $140,000,000. Then an esti mate came along, and this Is what was called an authentic estimate, to the effect that the country would have to expend $184,000,000. an,l it may be, nnd the colonel Is frank to ay It, that the limit may have to be raised at least once again. Up to the present time about $80, 000,000 has been appropriated by congress for the ciinal work. On July 1 last, $31,000,000 of the sum remained unexpended. When Col. Ooethals succeeded Mr. Stevens last March, as engineer In charge, he found that circumstances warranted an Increase of his working force and an enlarging of the plan of work. It was In August that the soldier en gineer told the Secretary of War thai If work were to be pushed at the rate at which It had been pushed since the army took charge, the ap propriation which had been made for the year ending June 30. 190S would be used up by the first of the calen dar year. Xo Attempt at Subterfuge. This bit of Informntton. which was cheering to those who hoped for a speedy completion of the canal work, was given to President Roosevelt, who at once personally, ordered Col. Ooethals not to stay his hand, but to go ahead at the same labor rate and Incur a deficiency. The colonel, like a good soldier, obeyed orders, and now the appropriations made la-t year, which was supposedly large enough to provide for the continu ance of the work until July 1 next, a Little WANT AD In the Citizen UslC are exhausted and n urgent deflc ienry bill calling for $11,000,000 for prosecuting th Panama enterprise Is pending In the house. The secretary of war has Just told the senate committee on Interoeeanlc canals that the work wag kept going at high speed and that deficiency was Incurred because It was his be lief there was greater economy in going ahead than In lagging, for lag ging meant that the canal organisa tion could not be kept up to Its full efficiency and Its full capacity. When the reasons had been explained the senators practically agreed with Secretary Tsft and Colonel Goethals. of the Increased cost of the canal over the original estimates, the sec retary of war has said: "The widen ing of the locks, In accordance with the request of the navy department, has been approved, and It means an additional cost In the construction of the. locks of about 10 per cent. The locks themselves, a.s now projected, will cost $52,000,000: and this means an addition of $5,000,000 to the price." In talking to the senators. Col. CSoethal used the work "guess" when he was telling them about the price of the completed canal. At first the senators didn't 'Ike the word, but they came In tin lerstand that the actual cost v:; beyond the power of man at present to estimate accurate ly, and so they fell in with the sol dier's Idea and feel that It was better to have indeflnUe statements rit'ier than definite statements which m'sht bring In their w ake dica ppoln: met: t. Conditions t'lifi"K IM'nialc. When Col. tlnilli iU was before the senate committee this v, i recorded: Senator Ta!' if . r . :;.ive you made any figures of estimates at all as to the ultimate cost of the canal? Colonel tjoethals. A rough guess was made In April, when we figured out the amount of excavation to be dene; that is all. A guess made then was that we could build it within the $250,000,000. As the amount author ized by congress will be expended in the next fiscal year, we shall have to prepare an accurate estimate. We ex pect to be In a position to do that by next year. In speaking of the time that It will take to complete the canal. Colonel Goethals said It was expected that the work would be done In the time or iginally estimated by Jan. 1. 1915, at the latest. Then ha said that the hope was to finish It in less time, but he declined to make any statement as to the exact date. He said frank ly that the difficulties that might be encountered are unknown and un certain. He said that there had been two or three bad slides In the Cule bra divisions that gave the engineers some concern. These troubles, he said, had been overcome, but no man could tell what may happen at any place along the line at any moment. From all that has been said by the engineer In charge of the Panama canal work. It may be that the cost of the construction will run up to $400,000,000. but as soon as It Is learned that the price of the work Is to be a higher one than heretofore It his been believed It would be, the country will be told. It seems that the canal is to be dug, and dug quick ly, no matter how much it may cost, and probably that is what the people want. TELEPHONE 15 S Hft i H J'' c I . ..r i"'. i:-, i hi mam " '. " .
