President Tii It tonight Issued u proclamation fixing the rates Unit' foreign shipping shall pay for passage through tho Panama canal. The procla nun ion, made under authority of .the canal bill passed by congress in A uk list, estab lishes a merchant vessel rate of $L20Xevv per net ton in actual carrying ca pacity, with a reduction of 40 per cent on .ships in liallast. The provi sions of the proclanialion are as fol lows: "First. n merchant vessels car rying passengers or cargo, $1.20 per net vessel ton each 100 cubic feot of actual earning capacity. "Second. On vessels in ballast without passengers or cargo, 40 per rent less than tho fate of tolls for vessels with passengers or cargo. "Thin!. Upon naval vessels, other than transports, colliers, hospital ships and supply ships, 50 cents per displacement ton. "Fourth. Upon army and navy transports, collier, hospital ships and supply ships, $1.20 per net ton, the measured by the same employed in detcrmin- tonnnge of merchant and the Orient, fuel expenses vln Panama will be less than by way of Sue?.; and, with equal tolls at cacti canal, the Panama route readily will secure the traffic. "It is not to be expected that much of the commerce of Kurope with the l'aclfle seaboard of Asia can he di verted to tin- l'anania from Its pres ent route via Suez. Distances are less via Suez; and with the exception of vovagvs from north Kurope to Japan and return the fuel expenses are low er by way of Sun. With equal tolls at Panama and Sue, some vessels will take the Panama route between Japan and I'urope in order to dis charge and secure cargo at American ports. "To a'iract from the Suez to the American route any considerable ad ditional share of the European Orient tonnage, the rates of toll at Panama would have to be made so low as to reduce unjustifiably the revenue of the canal. "A Panama toll oi'.T1.20 per lot ton will not burden unduly the com merce served by the canal. The costs of transportation between the two seaboards of the United States will be reduced several times the amount of toll; and for the commerce of the eastern seaboard of the United States with western South America and with Australia, the economics effected by the Panama canal will largely exceed the toll suggested. Likewise the sav ing in time and fuel expenses via Pan ama as compared with the Magellan route between our eastern seaboard and New Zealand will be such as to insure the profitable use of the Pana ma canal. "Nor will a toH of $1.20 per ton scr iouslv restrict the use of the canal by Fi.ronean countries.

The organization was launched a few Jay ago at Phoenix, Ariz., Willi declared intention of forming a fraternity of Mexicans In the United Stales to de fend, morally and materially, refugees held on American soil for other than criminal offenses. The large Mexican population of the American border states makes complex the problem should the organization assume such proportions, that the small member ship fee will make possible a material fund to assist rebel activity in Mexico.

"The secretary of war will prepare and prescribe such rules for the mea snrement of vessels and such regula tions as may be necessary and proper o carry lh.'S procliimatio.l Into full force and effect." American coastwise shipping was exempted from toll payment by con gress. It was to this provision of the net that :reat P.rltaln protested, but no reference to the protest was made in the president's proclamation. Amer ican naval vessels fire exempted without specific mention either in the act of congress or the proclama tion because these authorities believe it unnecessary to explain the use lessness of payment from Its navy department pocket to the one belong ing to the treasury department. These rates are practically the same as those which will be in ef fect at the Suez canal next year. The president bases his declaration of rates upon the report and Investi gation of Prof, ICmory 11. Johnson, of the University of Pennsylvania. an expert designated by executive order for the task. The report has been awaited with interest by shipping interests throughout the world. According to Prof. Johnson's report i to the president also made public to-J night, the Panama canal should be upon n self sustaining basis in twen ty years. It should compote suc cessfully with the Suez route for the traffic of Kurope, with South Ameri can west coast points and with New Zealand, but cannot be expected to compote successfully for Kurope'." trade to the far east. Taking the estimates of the canal commission for expenses of operation and maintenance of the canal and for the Improvements held to be neces sary at the end of n decade. Professor Johnson figures that the rate per net ton can be reduced tit the end of ten years to $1. Even with this rate, which he sa.s probably will t orrcs pond closely with the rate that may then be enforced through the Suez canal, the United Stales will obtain enough revenue from foreign vessels to pay all fixed charges, provide a sinking fund of 1 per cent to retire the Panama canal bonds, and still tind a yearly balance. The Johnson report shows that a foreign traffic of about 9,000,000 tons may be expected through the canal during its first two years of operation: a traffic of more than 11, nrio.oiio tons in 1920, and H.non.nnn tons in 1923. Although not maintain ing that bis estimate is final, Pro fessor Johnson declared that an In crease of mi per cent a decade in tonnage toiild be looked for and that this would mik the canal self-sustaining in twenty years. Professor Johnson's defense of the J 1.20 rate for merchant vessels is based on several grounds. It reads in Part as follow?: "A toll of J 1.20 per net ton on load ed merchant vessels 'and h reduction of 40 per cent from the standard rate in the ease on the vessels in ballast will place the Panama canal and its rival, ahe Suez, on an equal competi tive footing. 'The Pinama canal must compete with the Suez route for the commerce of eastern states, and of the Atlantic North Sea or' of Kurope with the Orient east of Sncapore. For voyage 1'elwecn ihe cast rn United States fered with ton. the the growth rem and with Zealand, the sav ng resulting from the shortening of tne time ,u voyage via Panama as com on red with the Straits of Magellan would not war rant the payment of tolls of fl.20 per net vessel ton for using the l'an ania canal; but the fuel expenses via Panama will be so much less than via MagellatiH as to make the Pana ma route preferable even with f it -in nor net ton. Moreover profitable trade route between Kurope .,, Chile is via Panama and the ports' intermediate between the mns and Valparaiso. Panama I nntnrnl entrance for the west of South American trade. "The normal growth of traffic of the Panama canal will not be inter- by a toll of $1.20 per ne, The tonnage of snipping umok Suez canal has increased rapidly. of traffic having I'ocn bout 70 per cent during the last ten years, although the tolls at the open ing of the decade, were SI. 74 per net ton, and in 1911. $1.S0 a higher rale than is charged for Panama. It Is sug gested that the tolls at Panama start vith relr 'Ively low rale to which the Suez charges will have been brought in 1912, at the end of forty- three vears of traffic cieveiopmeui. In the president's proclamation rate upon war vessels was fixed at .0 cents a displacement ton and TTofen s,,r Johnson had this comment make: "The tolls upon merchant vessels should be fixed low enough to enable the Panama canal effectively to trans port the commerce of the United States and the world; but the United States government is not called upon to make the Panama canal tolls upon warships low for the purpose of light ening the naval harden for foreign countries in sending their warships through the Panama canal, foreign nations should pay tolls high enough to cover costs and risks incurred by the canal authorities in performing the service rendered." the to !

A Constan tinople dispatch addressed to the Daily News says: At 4 o'clock this afternoon the director of transportation In formed those making linnilrles at the war office that the cessa tion of hostilities had already been arranged. Simultaneously another official summoned the chief contractors for military supplies anil informed Iheni that hostilities would cease this even ing and that the existing sup plies contracts would be can celled and no further military supplies sent to the front. A cholera camp was opened at Ttizla today, twenty new cases being sent there. All Uskup dispatch to the Daily Telegraph says the war In Macedonia practically has been concluded. The combined Ser vian and Creek armies are clos ing in on Monastlr, where there are only scattered fragments of the Turkish army. These are demoralized by repeated defeats and it is doubtful if they can offer much resistance. The correspondent of the Kx prcss, writing from Haileiukeui, near Constantinople, says Ku rope is going to see n nation in the grip of death by starvation this winter.

The arrests this week here and at San Antonio.

The porte, on the advice of Russia, has Instructed Nazim Pasha, the Turkish commander-in-chief, to apply to the Bulgarian commander for an eight days' armis tice with a view to opening direct ne gotiations for peace. The situation at the front is con fusing. Cleurlv there has been heavy lighting as on Novemoer 12th. Con-j stantinople reported that numerous wounded were arriving from the front and the almost invariably correct Vienna Reiehspost correspondent has, reported the capture of a position hvj Tiulgarlaiis In the neighborhood of the Tchatal.ia lines. The same correspondent now says the main attack on Tchatalja has been delayed two days by ra'n. The powers at last have arrived n some kind of an agreement with re spect to mediation. It is assumed however, that now the porte has opened negotiations with Bulgaria, Kiuopean intervention will not be needed. The diplomatic situation is easier, bin the French premier, M. Poineare. in a speech in Paris tonight, did not speak too hopefully, anil proof that all danger is not past is seen In oinnl ous reports from Austria and Russia of unusual troop movements and mobilization in Russia's western pro vinces. M. Poineare declared it esseiit'al that Kurope advance o pretensions on the fruits of the alii.

Nov. 13. owing largely to President-elect Wilson's declination that he will be p, eased to receive suggestions regarding the ,to- sirnbilitv of an extra session of gross, there was much freer expres sion of opinion among senators and members of the house favorable to such a session today I ban heretofore indulged in. Among those who pronouncedly advocated an early session plan was Senator Martin of Virginia, who is the caucus leader of the party in the senate. "I can see no reason why the per formance of the promises of the dem ocratic party should be delayed nine months." said Senator Martin. "If i the legislation promised is wise and of such a nature as to promote the welfare of the people of the country, the sooner It Is enacted the better. "Sometimes it Is suggested that the demociatic majority In the senate is so narrow and that there arc such differences of opinion as art- likely to prevent the passage of promised leg islation, but I am sure these sugges tions are without any foundation in fact. 1 have nl the slightest doubt about such harmony and co-operation among democrats of the senate as will secure the passage through that body of all the legislation promised in the Haltlmore platform."
