Bryan. "1 am merely making a survey of the field and will report to the prime minister." said Dr. Goldstein today At present the steamers of the vol unteer fleet run from Odessa to Vlad ivostok, and it may be they win come across the Pacific and through the canal. "It seems to uie that iti would be profitable to send tbe ships from Vladivostok to Vancouver, thence to San Francisco and through the canal to Odessa and perhaps make another run In the opposite direction Agri cultural machinery, boota and shoes, canned fruits and many kinds of man ufactured articles might fmd a ready market In Russia and I believe that leathery wool, fur and skins and oth er raw materials could be sent to the United States to advantage of both nations.

"Thr op prators have taken no steps to meet the United States Mino Workers of America officials next Monday, but are ready at an time to meet men actuality in their employ singly or In groups to consider and adjust dif ferences.' This in brief, was the po sition of the operators voiced todav In connection with tbe threatened strike situation in southern Colorado coal fields The district convention of the miners will open Monday In Trinidad. If the Capitol park at Washington, with the national capltol cresting It. should suddenly begin to move down into Pennsylvania avenue at a rate of about three feet a day, the authori ties of tbe city would naturally feel some degree of annoyance. And if the smooth and level asphalt of that his toric thoroughfare should over night, rise up In the air 18 feet in spots, those responsible for traffic might reasonably be somewhat worried. Such a phenomenon would be not so startling In mere magnitude as tho "slides' which have added so greatly to the work of the engineers on the canal, and have made tourists, wise with the ripe fruits of five days' observation: wag their heads know ingly when Colouel Goethals calmly repeats his assertions that the wa iter will soon be turned In If these slides were an entirely new and unexpected phenomenon for I which no allowance had been made In j tbe estimates of the canal builders they would justify tbe apphehenslon they have awakened in the non-pro-j ressional mind. But the slides were I in fact anticipated, fcen during the j preliminary scratching of the Isth mian backbone by the French they occurred and the American engineers J knew precisely what to expect. The ' first slide occurred during our work 'on the Isthmus in 1905; the others have only been bigger because lh canal being dug deeper has weakened the bases of hills along its banks. All tho same, the proportions of the slide are terrifying and the chief geologist declares that they will no cease until the angle of the canal hank becomes so gentle that gravity Will not pull the crest down The slides are of two sorts TM simpler Is a mere swift rush of al the loose surface dirt, sand, gravel and stone down the surface of the bank These gravity slides, though troublesome, present no new prob lems To stop them it la necessar only to carry the crest of tbe bank further back so that tbe angle will be less steep But the great, trou blesome slides are those caused bj the pressure of the hill-top on Its i undermined and weakened base. Once started, the whole mass, acres In ex tent, moves slowl toward the cavity of the canal, three feet a day being Its swiftest recorded progress. A.1 i Culebra the slides compelled the BISHOP OF THE I EPISCOPAL I CHURCH I The Rt. Rev F. S. Spalding, DD.. fl bishop of Utah is the guest of the H Rev. William W. Fleetwood at North H Ogden.

' moving of a large part of the town away from the edge of the cut, lest it be swept into the gorge. j Ab the slide moves slowly down ward, its colossal weight applied at points where nature had made no provision for It, forces the earth up ward at the point where it can offer tho least resistance, namely the bed of the canal. The upheaval of the canal bed and the occasional outpour ings of steam have led at times to exaggerated reports In the newspa pers of volcanlp action being one of the new problems with which the canal builders had to grapple. At one time It was the policy of tbe commission to keep the public in the dark concerning these apparently se rious obstacles to the progress of the work The canal zone is fairly haunted by men able to arouse the attention of the public Since I have been here every ship brings congress men, magazine writers and newspa per men. Anything that savors of secrecy Instantly arouses their Inter est, and If their conclusions Rre er roneous it is the fault mainly of those who seek to obscure the facts. Prob ably It waa largely because of the earlier efforts of the commission to hu:sh the matter up that the Impres sion spread In the Cnited States that the slides would Indefinitely delay the conclusion of the work even If they were not wholly fatal to It. The commission now rs perfectly frank. The story told about the ex- j tent of the slides is sufficiently i alarming, but the calmness with J which they are meeting the sltuatiou jl is reassuring. I Nobody with knowledge anticipates that the slides will Interfere with Colonel Goethals' determination to put a ship through the canal on time, Tbe canal Is so wide at the cut that tbe biggest slide has never obstructed rm,i. man ono-thlrd of Its width, so J that a sufficient channel for the pas- I of ships can easily be buoyed off fl in the free water while the dredges p are working to remove the obstruc- j tion. jl The lirt can not always slide in J Faster than It is carried out, for in fl tijne therr- will be no dirt left to fl slide. And so undismayed and Intent "I upon success, the whole force from jl Colonel Goethals to the youngest en- 1 glneer moves on Culebra and the I doom of that stubborn block to pro- gress 18 sealed.
