more acutely than Carlsbad, according
to a man living in this city who is fa

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

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
"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
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
