D. C, Nov. 21. Signs that the Panama canal is moving rap idly along to completion are contained in the annual report of the Isthmian j canal commission for the, year ending 1 June 30, 1910, which has just been made public. j The construction of the lock gates j has been contracted for and will be j completed by June 1, 1913. These con tracts entail a cost of $o,34,44.SZ. There will be 46 gates :n all and. ac cording to the contract, the work of ereerion at Gatun is to begin on Jan- j uary 1, 1911, and to be completed on February 1, 1913; at Pedro Miguel the work of erection is to begin March 1, 1911, and to be completed May 1, 1912; and at Miraflores work is to begin January 1, 1912, and to be completed June 1, 1913. The Cost So Far. Of the $375,201,000, which it is esti mated is will cost to build the canal, there remains only $127,199,531.42 to be appropriated. The total classified ex- j penditures for canal -work to June 30. 1910, amounted to $191,25S,113.93, of which $31,188,426.37 were the net ex penditures during the fiscal year cover ed by this report.

AMERICAN AND TAMIL Y HAD DYNAMITE IN HOUSE FOR MINING JAILED IN CHIHUAHUA Eagle Pass, Tex., Nov. 21. Advices today fail to confirm the report that 500 persons were killed In a pitched battle at Zacatecas, Mexico, Saturday night. lieports from Mexico City state no word of any disorder in Zacatecas has reached there. The report is generally believed here to be a fake, for it seem; strange that the news of such a battle should be received at Eagle Pass and no where else, yet many rumors from Mexicans claiming to know state that 400 were killed there Sunday and Sun day night. Fight at Hermanez. Reports are flying thick and faat hereabouts, however. A report was received here this morning that ?n outbreak by revolutionists took p'acs at Hermanez, 100 miles south of here last night in which four citizens and two- policemen were' 'injured. The demonstration was of short duration, as the street quickly filled with sol diers and "thlT erbwef" dispersed shoutP'Vl'varMade'rd' ing "Down with Diaz." Several shots were exchanged but the men wer,e in jured when officers and soldiers charged the mob. The town is now quiet and -it is believed there "will ce no further outbreak, according to reports. It is also stated here today that a disturbance is in progress at Guerrerc in the state of Coahuila and that mora soldiers have been rushed to the scene. Federal troops are now in control :n Guerrero exercising martial law. Guerrero is about 50 miles from Co tulla, Tex., in a western direction, an I is in the district to which Franel3-o I Madero, the alleged revolutlonar'-, was making his way when he was last seen in Texas. The Madero estates lie in that part of Mexico. A party of Mexicans eluded the cus toms Inspectors last night and suc ceeded in getting Into Mexico at the j ford across the Rio Grande about 20 l miles below Eagle Pass. Julio Madero. supposed to be a son of Francisco Ma dero, arrived In Eagle Pass last night at midnight by private conveyance and. 1 registered at the Dolch hotel .

Daade gathered a posse and they are scouring the country - ' men. Star gazers of El Paso are doomed ,to disappointment next year. Mister Dooley says, Th' Dimmj'crats did Jt." Roosevelt doesn't believe it is so, but nevertheless they are to be disappoint ed. Almanacs for 1911 are out and Prof. Star Gazer says that there is not to bo a single eclipse of the moon, not a solitary one, whereas usually there are three or four each year, nothing do ing since the Halley comet missed tho earth by a few million miles and went on its way with its tall hanging behind like the proverbial old.cow. While the night features of the sky program are not billed for 1911, there will be two performances by his ma jesty, king Sol, which promise literally to eclipse anything heretofore at- j tempted, as the circus advance agent would say. - Will Be Seen Here. Really and truly, though, according to the advices givenout from I he Out look and Lookout office of the prln- 1 cipal astronomers of the present day and age, Mr. Sun will hide his face .for a time on April 28, not April i. Down here in the southwest this will be visible, but our northern and east ern brothers will pine in vain for any heavenly phenomena on that day. In October, on the 22nd dar, to be exact, there will be another eclipse of the orb of day, but it will not be visible in the United States because Sol does not wish to hide himself so often in our country. He will go on a vacation in other lands and allow the earth to cast a shadow over him for a while. The astronomers and oth.er telescope artists who worked over time while Hadley's comet was ddlng stunts In the sky and frightening ordinary mortals out of their wits with the fear that it was going to strike this mun dane sphere, are going on a vacation. May See Other Things. Possibly some of them will climb the top of some high mountain, cast their glances back to these United States and endeavor to secure a glimpse of the political situation. Maybe some of the glasses will be trained on Blue Point, formerly Oyster Bay, and en deavor to determine whether or not there are any flies on the lord of tho manor. Some of. the spy glasses will beai rected toward the convention halls where the Arizona and New Mexico constitutional delegation congregated this year and perhaps two more stars may be discovered In the American flag. That will certainly be some recompense for the men- of the sky who will also have many aeroplanists to watch in their dare devil, death de fying dips, dives and dances, through the filmy atmosphere, but alas the milky way will be no more milky than formerly, and the stars that shine will merely shine and a few of them drop from their places to others more se cure, but they will not hit old mothe earth this coming year.' The almanafc says so, and the almanacs foretell everything except politics. Eagle, Pass, Tex., Nov. 21. "General Bernardo Reyes is coming." Tthat's the whisper that has gone with telegraphic swiftness up and down the Rio Grande. If it Is true, and many Mexi cans assert that it is, It means that the revolutionists have at their head a man superior in military training to any other man in Mexico, not even excepting president Diaz himself. General Reyes, once a business friend of president Diaz, Is now said to be an exile from his country. He was sent a year ago to Paris on a "military mission." Since then no word has come from him until to day, when the cautious word was sent from Matamoras to lias Va cas. It was reported among the Mexi cans that he will reach Eagle Pass within 10 days. Reyes was governor of Neuvo Leon, that hotbed, of revolution in Mexico. . During the last campaign for president n. .ucaiwu, bujiie ut. uis uuimrers pro posed his name as vice president. Sub sequent events appeared to prove that Reyes, while avowing .perfect amity and friendship for Diaz, was plott'ng hos downfall. Adherents of general Reyes openly assert that he is now foat loose and has a strong following in all parts of the republic. Reyes was forced to resign as gov ernor of Nueva Leon because of h' candidacy for the vice presidency a"d his opposition to Corral, and Migt. Cardenas, governor of Coahuila, was made to resign from that post because he was friendly to Reyes. Reyes was then sent to Europe. MEXICO MA Y RAISE BIG ARMY AT ONCE v Mexico City, Mex.. Nov. 21.
