Besides this plan permits of an ex? pansion so as to secure two outlets to Asia and the Far Bast. The first of these would be from Manila to the Island of Formosa, the Japanese Island, from which uolnt the Japanese have built a line to the Japanese cv>a.st and the mainland of. Asia. The second out? let would be from Hawaii south to Fan nlngs Island, at which point the newly projected British cable from Vancouver to iNow Zealand crosses. The foregoing projects have nothing to do with any private enterprises, but avould be a Government enterprise. It is considered that the Government ?would not only bo free from the pres? ent high charges and from the super? vision of the foreign companies now handling -the business, but that the line being Opehed to the public and commer? cial uses at a reasonable rate, would Afford facilities for the expanding trade of the Pacific, and nt the same time yield a considerable return to the Gov? ernment. FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS CON? CERNED. Foreign governments which would be effected by this project?notably Rus? sia, Japan, and Great Britain?are be? ginning to show some concern over it. tind It is understood that the Govern? ment has been sounded of late from Bcverail foreign quarters to see what its plans are.
