Food Inspection Board Refuses Request of Wholesale Grocers. WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. Announce ment was made today that the board of food and drug inspection has refused to recommend to the three cabinet of ficers having a final say in the matter an extension of another year, or until Oct, 1, 1909, of the privilege of using labels on food products that did not contain a misstatement as to the char acter of the contents, instead of labels prescribed by the board under the terms of the pure food and drug act. Recently the Wholesale Grocer's As sociation and individual wholesalers and jobbers throughout the country, re- qpested the board of food and drug in spection to recommend the extension of the privileges for another year, or until Oct. 1, 1908.. The board announces that in its opinion sufficient time has elap sed for manufacturers, jobbers and wholesalers to adjust their business af fairs to the terms of the law and of the regulations The general impression seems to exist that the use of corrected labels will not be permitted after Oct. 1, next. Any person has a right to use .a label which is not false or deceptive in any particular, even though this result , is arrived at through the use of stickers, erasures or other suitable means. The board directs attention td the fact, however, that misleading and deceptive statements must be obliterated from the labels. 1 , JAPAN EAGER TO WAR Rear Admiral Joseph Coghlon Makes the Assertion. BEFORE ARMY AND NAVY CLUB $100,000 FOR BOX AT OPERA. Helnry C. Frick Pays Record Price in Metropolitan in New York. NEW YORK, Oct. 4. It was announ ced today that Henry C. Frick, the Pittsburg steel millionaire, had paid! $100,000 for box No. 19 at the Metro politan Opera-house. This is the high est price ever paid for a box in the Metropolitan's aristocrats . "diamond horseshoe," James B. Haggan, in 1903 bought Heber R. Bishop's box, No. 9, for $80,000. The prevailing price be? fore that was $30,000. Frick has se cured box No. 19 by purchasing the late Henry I. Barbey's stock in the Metropolitan Opera House. If There is no Foundation fn War Talk, he Says, There is Still the Trade In terests Which Ar e of Inestimable Proportions and Must be Protected, J , a k.A- t ' : t . 1: I . . NEW YORK, Oct. 4 Wellington if well awarte that Japan is straining every resource in the preparation for war, despite the protestations of friendship we hear from certain sources. The plan to mobolize a great fleet in Pacific waters is the most stragetlc move for peace which could possibly have been taken and shows the necessity for more ships. To duplicate this United States navy would cost far less than to main tain a six moma's war witn Japan or any formidable foreign power. An ap propriation of $150,000,000 would build and equip twenty modern battleships and give as the greatest navy in tlie world a sea-fighting strength that precludes all possibility of menace to the commerce or the land possessions of the country." Roar-Admiral Joseph Coshlan. only retired after more than forty-six years ot active service,, thug sounded a note of warning in an interview at the Army and Navy Club today in which he strongly advocated "doubling the pres ent naval forces as a safeguard to peace. "The maintenance of a powerful ocean patrol on the Pacific," said the Admiral, "is necessary to the United Seates as an adquate life insurance policy is to the dependant family that is husbanded by no other protection. If there is no foundation to all this talk of war with Japan that we hear. no truth in the prophecy of a 'yellow penr to obviate which stringent legis lation may becoma necessary, there are trade interests of inestimable im portance which must be protected and nursed. "Every manufacturing nation in Eu rope, individually and collectively, is jealous of the wonderful 'strides with which our trade in the Orient and Far East has grown. Their newspapers will continue to print articles about the sig nificance of what they term unneces sary naval demonstration on the nart of the United States at this time. Not one of these European countries, however, would hesitate at issuini? an ultimatum which would be backed up by warships if their own interests were in the least interfered with. "Aside from the trade interests whv should not the United States send its warships to whatever waters where their presence will add security to the peo ple who look to the Stars and Stripes for protection? Why should we not send them to the Pacific coast now! The answer is simple. In that deree- tion lie our most vulnerable point and battleships, according to my under standing, weit intended and designed to pmtect coast lines that cannot other wisp be well defended. "It is known that extensive shipbuild ing yards owned by the Japanese are being worked to full capacity in building new ships and converting tho.se taken from Russia into servieable war ves sels. They are adopting the most mod ern appliances in all of their work. It is a notorious fact that they have cop ied as much of our navy as It has been possible for them to duplicate." "Admiral, how would the cost of du plicating the navy as it stands today compare with the expense of maintain ing a war with any foreign country?" was asked. "It is not possible to make a compar ative estimate unless you disregard en tirely the value of human life," was the prompt reply. "In the mere matter of dollar and cents," he continued, "$1501000,000 would more than build twenty new battleships of the Dread naught type and fit them with the most modern appliances. That would give the United States the greatest navy afloat just what it ought to have. "There will be a, necessity for exten sive new shipyards. There is a dock at Mare Island, near San Francisco, with yards ample to take care of our needs. A little further north at Brem erton is another yard. With a third yard at the Philippine base of supplies in Subi Bay, such extensions as will be necessary to provide for the wants of a big fleet will represent a compara-! nveiy small cost." lwx county, New Jersey, to init't her promised husband, Floyd hugene Dunk lee.

It extend from Port Said, 'on the Mediterranean, to Sue, on the Red Sea, a distance of 87 miles. Of this, 00 miles is actual canal and 21 miles lakes. The canal is without locks. , It was opened to navigation Novem ber 17, 1800 and took ten years to build. It was built by a company or ganized by the late Ferdinand De Leo seps, afterward of Panama fame. The total cost of construction was $80000, 000. Originally for about four-flftftu of its length, it was 327 feet wide at the suface of the water, 72 feet wide at the bottom and 20 feet deep. For the remainder it was 190 feet wide at the surface of the water, the width at the bottom and the depth being the same as the wider portion. In recent years it has, been widened and deepened tn order to meet the re quirenientg of the immense traffic pas sinfc through it. A canal was also built in connection to bring fresh water to the Sues from hte Nile at a point near Cairo. This canal reaches the Sue at Ishmilla and then runs almost par allell to the salt-water canal at Sues. , It is about 40 feet wide and 9 feet deep and is also used for navagarion as well as irrigation. In 1873 the Brit ish government bought the interest of the viceroy of Egypt in the Suez canal, The building of the Suez canal short ened the ailing distance from London to Bombay from 11,220 miles to 6332 miles.. The trade of the world now passes through the canal, and its traffic Is constantly increasing. March I, 1877 navigation at night was commenced by the use of electric lights, thus shorten ing the time of passage from 20 hours to 20 hours. During the year 1894, 3352 vessels pas sed through the Suez canal and the re ceipts from tolls were $15,000,000. In 1874 only 1204 vessels went through. last year the business was larger than ever, but it has been noted that not a single vessel flying the American flog went through the canal. Of course, a large portion of the commerce was to and from the United States, but it was carried on foreign bottoms. The receipts from tolls are now 20 er cent per1 year of the cost of the canal, and Suez canal stock pays good dividends every year out of the net earnings. NEARLY GETS OUT.
