his visit to Washington, in February,

could pass through if it became neces
sary for them to do so. The expendi
ture of money will not be over by
that tfme, but the outlay of large
sums will be. In fact, only one more
big appropriation will be necessary,
and that will probably bring the
amount to $350,000.00«, about $25,000,
000 less than
made in October, 1908.
This prospect of completing the
work at so much less than the esti
mated cost is due to the fact that the j
concrete in the locks is costing less j
than was expected (in the ease of the
Pacific locks nearly o 0 per cent less,
and in the case of those at Gatun
well within the estimate), and that
excavation is constantly
cheaper. A big saving has been ef
fected also in the rapidity with which
tbe work is advancing. A very ordi
nary mathematician can figure it out
that it is cheaper to finish a certain
piece of work in two years than in
four, especially where the overhead
charges are as high as they are in
the canal zone, practically 20 per cent
The amount appropriated for the
coming fiscal year is $45,560,000, the
largest appropriation yet made for
one year. Of this amount $21,000,000
is for wages and $20,000,000 for

Canal Will be Fortified.
The question of fortification was
probably settled for all time, when
the congress appropriated $3.000,000
in the last days of the last session to j
begin work. Of this amount $2,000,- j
000 may be spent on the isthmus in \
preparing for the guns at either en
trance of the canal, and the balance j
in the United States in the manufac
ture of the guns. An outline of the
plans has already been published from
Washington. They provide for fortifi
cations ,and coast artillery stations at
either entrance to the
works for the protection of the locks
and dams, and an army post on the
east bank of Culebra cut, near Em
pire, a point easy of access from both
ends of the canal, both by water and
rail, and at the terminus of the rail- :
road which the Republic of Panama I
is to build
from the northwestern
part of the country to the canal. The
project provides for an expenditure of ;
$12,000,000, which la $7,000,000 less
than was requested originally, the de
ductlon being due to the elimination
of one batlery at the Pacific entrance. |
and to more economical methods of
installation of the guns and of erect
The determination to fortify the
canal implies that the canal zone will
become a military reservation. This
is not inevitable, but it is reasonable. I
It Is also reasonable to expect that
the work of carrying on the govern
ment will be done by army officers. !
This is interesting to several hundred
American men now in the zone, who
would like to make the isthmus their i
permanent home, because it is an in
dication that there will be no chance
here for civillians who wish to
positions above those of clerk
tisan. The moral Is to quit playing
bridge and put your money In the
bank, so that when the force lay-off
comes next year you will bave enough
surplus to last until a job in the states
comes your way.

Benedict, who has been bought by the
Hattiesburg Baseball Association from
Mobile, as follows:
"Jlohn Benedict, leading backstop
of the City League last season, and

"Benedict has learned much of the
way professional baseball is played
since the training season opened, and
he will, no doubt, make the Cotton
