New Haven's snowstorm was a good
ope, and a bad one, but it wont have
any such far-reaching effort as the
snowstorm which came down on Chi

seem to have been cleared away yet.
The Civil Service commission of Chi
cago has discovered that eleven hun
dred street laborers are still employed
by the city for; the Pemoval of that re
markable fall of snow. According to
the records these eleven ' hundred
emergency laborers were kept at work
at the removal of that snow all
through the campaign for the. re-election
of Mayor Dunne, and, curiously
enough, the number of emergency la
borers for the removal of the snow
rose to 1,500 in July, 1906.

(Tht) Eostoij Transcript.)
In an acidressiefore tho Yale Politi
cal Science club, on "The Panama Canal
as a Business Venture," Mr. George L.
Fox of New Haven presents as the con
clusions of his investigations of the
subject tho belief that the structure
will cost at least half a billion dollars,
and perhaps greatly in excess of that
figure. He believes the annual in
come from tolls, on tho dollar a ton
basis which has been commonly sug
gested, may fail as low a3 four hun
dred thousand dollars, while the an
nual cost of maintenance will be be
tween two and tnrce millions. Its bens

ct so extravagantly.
Mr. Frederick H. uillott of Spring
field, a member of the house commit
tee on appropriations, has Just returned
from a visit to Panama., chiefly de
signed to secure the soft ot informa
tion which would equip him tor the
discussion cf canal tutnirs as they arise
in congress. Mr. Giiicti. acknowledges
that the expenditures impress him fur
niioubly, although ho. feels sure that
Mr. pox has greatly overestimated
them. The Massachusetts representative
lias always been rather sceptical of the
commercial value of tho enterprise. He
reasons, however, that we have become
so audacious as a people that if we

Everything at Panama, lie found, had
been done on an expensive scale. The

The conditions from the beginning

to err, it at all, In the direction of lib
erality. H was necessary to mass a
huge working force on the Isthmus at.
once, and under such conditions that it
would stay. If from Insanitary or eith
er objectionable conditions, an exodus'
of laborers had set in, it might have
taken years to re-establish a necessary
working force, and to live down the
reputation once acquired. No expense
has been spared ln eradicating disease
germs, and in offering wages which
would bring laborers from all parts of
tho world, policies which have doubt
less been necessu'ry as well as hu
mane. From all the testimony Mr. C I lift t
received, he concluded that the forty
thousand men on the government pay-roll.-i
there, were getting just about
twice as much as they would receive
from private concn ns employed in tho
United Slates. A yount; man from
Holyoke, the foreman in one of the
foundries, reported that the moulders
under iiim received from sixty-five to
eighty cents an hour, when they would
not get over two-thirds that at home.

has besides hul'.t four clubhouses

are 'he wages good, but everything
which contributes to the health, com

has been provided on a generous scale.
