Gigantic Enterprise Which Would Make Gibraltar of Little Value to England To Take Eight Years to Build. Franco is getting ready to lift up her shipping to the first rank, double tho force of her navy, and cause tho Med iterranean to cease to be an "English lnko" by nuullfylng dlbraltar. And this she expects to accomplish by building a vast ship canal across the lower end of Franco from tho At lantic to tho Mediterranean. By Its means, the French fleet will be capable of operating, ono day on the Atlantic, and then two days later show Itself In Mediterranean ports, without subject ing Itself to the guns of Gibraltar. Ono of the queerest things about It Is thnt tho canal exists already for canal boats and small coasters. To en large it for warships and merchantmen is no mere dream. Slnco 1878 't'ho canal of the two seas" has been fully planned by engineers. Three parlia mentary commissions havo made es timates upon It, nnd now M. Oauthlcr, CANAL ACQUKUUCT OVEItGAnONNI) IUVKR. (How Locomotives Will Draw Warships Through the Cnnnl.) minister of public works, has sent his own commission to mako final studies of tho scheme, and its conclusions are to bo submitted to tho lower house for action. Tho modern engineers havo a Ti tanic task before them to enlarge tho Bordeaux-Narbonno system to n deep sea ship canal a ship canal that must climb and descend a mountain water shed! Eight years will he required. The cost is estimated at a minimum of $100,000,000, although an early com mission set It at $200,000,000 and still another at $350,000,000. The latter cal culation has been proved erroneous. Tho present estimates foresee 300, 000 workmen, guided by 30 chief en gineers nnd 200 overseers, with dig glng nnd tunneling machines driven by 60,000 horsepower. The routo Is straight from Arcachon to Agen on the Garonne, 80, miles of easy cutting, without a slnglo lock. , Tho waters of tho Garonne aro to be reenforced from mnny a torrent of the Pyrenees which will save Tou louse and other towns from tho peri odic inundations that now trouble them. Between Agon and Toulouso the Garonne, strongly banked and be come at last the safe drain of these mountain torrents, will tako the fleets of war and commerco to Toulouso bo come the central maritime arsenal ot France. ; From Toulouse to Castelnajidry, th route Is along the old bed of tho canal of Languedoc, of Clara Ward's ances jtor-by-marrlage. Tho old cann abounds in locks. To mount to the lock of tho ocean, whero begins the up per race, it asconds a gradient of 200 feet by means of 17 locks in a distance of 32 miles. Tho upper race Is 3H miles long and terminates at tho lock of tho Mediterranean. To descend tc the Mediterranean the work ot Rlquet extends over 114 miles, descending s gradient of nearly COO feet by means ol 48 locks. French commerce waits upon tht canal for Its restoration. While the French coasting trado Is reduced tc 8,000,000 tons n year, that of Great Britain Is over 120,000,000 tons. The French deep-sea carrying Is less than that of Ital or Norway. German boats touch at Cherbourg to tako American freight; and English lines to tho ori ent cnlmly mako Marseilles their west ern stopping plnco. Over 80 por cent, of French exports nro carried In for eign bottoms, making a gift of $S0, ,000,000 annually to the English, Ger mans and Italians. When this cnnal Is built, England herself will elthor hnvo to pay toll to tho French or loso a lot of her own trade, and so on for tho othor commer cial neonle3 to-day nasslne thMr stuff through the straits of Gibraltar. From Malta to Ushant, for example, thers will be an economy of moro than 800 miles by tho cnnal; from Genoa to Ushant, an economy of 1,150 miles Bordeaux and Nnntos, on tho Atlantic, will becomo almost Mediterranean ports. From Bordeaux to Malta by Gibraltar Is now 2,308 miles. By th6 canal it will bo only 1,000 miles. Gentle Warning. Clarence Callow Did you notice that automobile Just then.

PRODUCTION OF THE LUSCIOUS SUGAR BEET Report of the Agricultural Depart ment Regarding the Beet Sugar Industry Sent to Congress by the President. Washington. President Itoosovclt sent to congress on Friday a report on tho progress of tho beet sugar In dustry In 1905, prepared by Charles F. Saylor of tho agricultural depart ment. Tho report says success has attended tho beet sugnr Industry in Colorado slnco tho beginning. Tho season of 1903 wns better than usual Colorado holds a unique position In tho development of tho beet sugar In dustry. It entered tho field at a com , paratlvcly recent date, but already ? twelve largo plants havo been In stalled, with n dally capacity of 9,200 tons. Threo othor factories Brush, , Fort Morgan nnd Swinch nro being jj built, with a capacity of 2,400 tons, f nnd threo others nro to bo built during . tho present year. Tho fifteen facto- vj rles will aggregato dally 11,500 tons C of beets and 1,276 tons of sugar, repre- scnting a money equivalent of $12, 700,000. The beet sugar Industry In. that stato 'has stimulated all sorts of improvements. Tho reports bIiow that Utah was tho third stato to enter upon sugar beet &Z production. Tho stnrt was mado at Lchl in 1891, nnd tho growth has been healthful over since. Tho over-production of beets soon stimulated tho erection of other factories. The beet districts of Utah aro said to bo better irrigated than in any other state. Tho flvo fnctorles of Utah havo a combined capacity of 4,000 tons. Utah's beet production has been much damaged by tho whlto fly pest, to which ento mologists of tho department of ngrl culturo will Immediately turn their at tention in tho hopo of eradicating the insect. Idaho is ono of tho nowest nnd least developed states in agriculture, but the installation of sugar factories has given a remarknblo impetus to agri cultural development generally. Idaho soil has rare qualities for sugar pro duction. Prior to this season Idaho had three sugar factories of 300 tons dully capacity. Two others aro con tracted for, ono at Nam pa for 190C and i ono nt Payctto for 1907. I Wyoming Is now under lnvcstlga- I tlon. Beets grown aro of n high qunl- I lty, and Utah and Colorado capital I has turned townrd that stato because I of cheap fuel nnd good water. The a m report says it Is likely that Wyoming, A llko Idaho, will suddenly Jump into B prominence nmong tho sugar states ot B tho west. I DAILY EARTHQUAKE SHOCKS.
