STRIFE MAY BRING Noted Resort in Which Millions Are Invested Depends Abso lutely on Tourist Trade. There ari few cities in Europe that will feel the effects of the present war more acutely than Carlsbad, according to a man living in this city who is fa miliar with tho peculiar conditions of that Bohemian spa. While it Is not probable that Carlsbad will suffer from the ravages of an invading army owing to its secure position in the heart of Europe, the entire economic life of the place will be disturbed to such an ex tent that the town will be practically dead so long as the war lasts Perhaps there Is not another single city any where In Europe so absolutely depend ent for Its very existence on financial t.ppcrt from outside sources. Thetje is ro Industry of anv kind in Carlsbad that Is not connected dlrectlv with tho springs of health-giving mineral waters. alMirugh tho surrounding district Is fa mous for its large china ware, toy, lace, and textile factories Certainly no place, not even Atlantic City or the largest European seasld" resorts, represents such a large Invest ment of capital as is tlnl up In Crls lijtfl subject to the good will and pat ronage of wll-to-eo persons of every nationality Asiel fr.mi .he fae t that the town la composed almost exclusivelv of large, costly licic's that legend -ii best for their revenue on a si months' sea.son of activity, the amount tiesi up in such enterprises is all the greitr be cense of the re'ativelv high land v. thus Carlsbad is situate. m an e- tr'inelj narrow vallev In one .f the fcotblll i.ingcs of th- Ore mountains, about ford miles sMith of the Pn'n border Hiiel the- Time- distance to tie" east of the Bavnrriii frontier The gignntl. hl'l.s of solid lock rising abniptlv front the banks of the Rivtr 'I t I seart lv Icive suflie'enl room for a single narro.v street on either side ami Carlsbad un be siiiel to consiHt eif a single street about two miles Innj.

MEjAJMI ilmHIBI II RUIN TO CARLSBAD HOW CANAL GIVES 2?J0m TRAOE POSSIBILITIES &T National Geographic Society Gives Result of Study of Freight Problem. The effect of the Panama Canal on tho commercial geography of tho world, has been made a subject of study by the National Geographic Society, and a re port just issued shows how the centers of American commerce hava been brought closer together. Tho report says: "It seems that tho Panama canal will carry most of the freight passing be tween the eastern coast of tho United States nnd tho western coast of Ijttln America, and that tho shorter distance, nnd lower rates which it offers will sreatly Increase that trade; that tho trade between tho eastern and western sections of tho United States will bo greatly Increased and transported at a much lower charge a ton; that it will sufficiently shorten tho distances to Japan, northern China, Australia, and New Zealand to Increase steamship eervlco and materially Increase tho traf fic with those countries, and that the European countries will use tho canal In most of their trafflo with western America and in exceptional cases with northern Asia, Australia and New Zeal and. Shorter Travel Routes. 'The canal has shortened travel 'routes between New York and Yoko hama by 3,750 miles; between Now York and Shanghai, about 2,000 miles; be tween New York and Australia, about 3,000 miles, and between Now York and western South America by from 3.E00 to 7.000 miles. It also reduces the distance from Europe to western South America by more than 5,000 miles. International commerce doubled In the thirty years following the opening of the Suez canal, and business and personal lnter-rela-tlonship between Occident and Orient was Increased In like proportion. Will similar results follow the Hko shorten ing of trade and travel routes by tho Panama canal? "Highways of travel on the ocean ar Influenced by surrounding conditions just as are those on land, so that the shortest distance between two given points is not always the best, plenti ful freight supplies, lnterchangeabillty of the products of the countries forming the termini of the routes, 'way stations' on such routes, plentiful coaling sta tions, and cheap coal of a quality suit able for steamship engines, and even favorable winds and ocean currents aro among the factors contributing to tho success of routes of travel upon the ocean. Eastern Benefits. "The sections of the world which may bo considered as probably within the 'sphere of Influence of the Pana ma canal aro the eastern and western coasts of America, tho eastern coast of Asia and tho islands of the Pacific All western America Is nearer to Eu rope than formerlly, and all western America and most of eastern Asia and Oceanica are nearer to the eastern e ,bs: of Americq. "j study of the production and con sumption of the vinous countries ly lrij within the canal's sphere of influ ence shows that their various products are thoroughly interchangeable. A study of distances alBO shows that both New York and New Orleans are now so much nearer to all western America than Is Liverpool that we may expect an in creasing share of the trade of that sec tion to fall to the lot of eastern North America: that the Eastern ports of the United States are considerably nearer to Yokohoma. Melbourne. Sydney, and Wellington than Ih IJverpool by her shortest route, but that Liverpool is still nearer Hongkong and Ma nilla than either New York or Now Or leans by way of Panama. "One of the most important results of the opening of the canal, doubtless, will be found In its effect upon the move ments of merchandise between the East ern and Western sections of tho United States. The data at hand seems to jus tify an estimate of about S.OnO.ono tons a year of freight moved by rail and about EOn.000 tons by water from tho At lantic coast section to the Pacific coast section, and about an equal amount from the Paciflr coast section and Hawaii to the Mlantic coast soetion The freight charges on theso 7.000,0no tons are estimated at from Jl'iO.OOrt fV) to J300.fOn.OoO a year The canal will chop huge amounts from these charges."

Low tide 4:43 a. m. and 4:52 p. in. Hundreds of fishermen, with their friends, sisters, cousins, and aunts, took advantage of Labor Day jester day to go out for a day with nature. The Potomac was crowded with boat ing parties, while scores upon scores of canoes darted about under the lusty strokes of the paddlers. Despite the clcudy condition of tho water, a few fish were caught, but not enough to go Into spasms of delight over, fishing in Washington, even on Labor Dav, is not all it should be, by a large majority They went up to Seneca, by automo bile, abovo Rockvillc; they went above Great I'olls. below the falls, at Little Falls and about every point a!onj thoJ Virginia shore to Analostan Jsianu. Then they went below tho Island, all the way down tho Potomac to Colonial Iieach. A numbejr of launches and cruisers took happy gatherings away on Satur day, to stay over Labor Day, and with colors set. tho boats on tho river pre sented gala appearance. Tho following places bear tho repu tation of being- good fishing- grunds: (1) "The Parlor." a pool above Boiling- Rock, straight out from Fletch er's. The water is deep and swift, and tho pool bears Its name because tho flsh aro known to congregate there. (2) Middle Rock, above tho Chain Bridge. It Is well to arrange to have a boat taken up on tho flood tide, as it is Impossible to make head way against an ebb tide. (3) "The Hens and Chickens," off tho point of the powerhouse near Fletcher's; wa ter 40 to 50 feet deep, and very swift. Care must be exercised. (4) Near the ladder, at tho Chain Bridge, opposite the branch on the Virginia side. (5) Opposite tho point of Analostan Is land, along the- bend of the river. Water about thirty feet deep. (6) Near tho Thurston steel plant, at Junction of Potomac and Eastern branch. (7) The Tidal Basin. Boat and bait may be obtained at the Speedway boathouse, at the western; end of the basin. (8) The Dyke, be tween Alexandria and ML Vernon. Boats may be obtained near car sta tion. (9) Occoquan, above the bridge. Stefansson Reported Off Herschell Island TVINNDPEG, Manitoba, Sept. 8.
