in 1891, when construction was
abandoned as the result of a finan
cial crisis in France, for in 1903,
when the republic of Panama was
formed and recognized by President
Roosevelt over night, he was ap
pointed minister to the United States.
"The Panama canal, which was
thought when projected to be per
petual, is just good enough for the
beginning, and there is just time
enough to complete the work neces
sary for its transformation into the
'straits of Panama,'" he said. "As
far back as 1887 I formulated the
plans by which the local canal was
first to be built across the isthmus,
to be later on transformed by dredg
ing into a wide passage at sea level.
This can be done without interrupt
ing the passage of ships while' the
summit level is gradually depressed.
"This idea of a sea level canal
could not be carried out within time
and money limits by working on
'.and, but it can be done easily in the
course of ten years by Ifae much
more powerful and cheaper system
of dredging and transporting the

fic, says Phillippe Bunau-Varllla, en
gineer in chief of the canal under
Ferdinand do Lesseps. This great en
gineer, who supervised the a'.tempt
of the French from 1884 to 1891 to
put a ribbon of water across the isth
mus U visiting Saa Francisco for the
first time.
Bunau-Varilla's work did not end
refuse on wa'er. The expense will
be relatively small."
He drew up the treaty which he
and Secretary of State John Hay
signed ten days later. Ten minutes
after the treaty was ratified he ten
dered his resignation to the president
of Panama.
"The completion of the canal will
change the center of gravity of
America," said Bunau-Varllla. "The
country west of the Rocky moun
tains, after the canal is opened, is
f!owly but inexorably going to become
the Europe of America."
Bunau-Varllla estimates that the
net tonnage of the canal during the
firs-, and second years of its opera
tion will be 10,500,000; that inside
of ten years the traffic will have in
creased to 22,000,000- tons, and In
twenty years will have reached 45,
000.000 tons.
During Bunau-Varilla's regime 70,-
000,000 cubic yards of earth were re
moved, and only 40,000,000 were left
when the panic swept the French
syndicate out of existence.

The entertainment course for the
season of 1913-1914 promises to be the
best series of attractions ever offered
the people of Cambridge and vicinity.
The course is opened by the Fisher
Shipp Concert company, which is com
posed of four artists: Miss Fisher
Shipp, reader and soprano soloist;
Miss Marlon Barry, violinist; Miss
Pauline Harrington, contralto, and
Lloyd A. Loar, who plays the mando
line and mando-viola. In the Fisher
Shipp company the management has
combined the two prime essentials of
a popular lyceum organisation, high
standard of Individuality and perfect
concerted work in the ensemble fea
tures which form a large part of the
program. Next comes the English
opera singers presenting scenes from
the grand and light opera in costume
sailor songs, selections from the ora
tories and popular selections. The old
Kentucky jubilee quartet is the best
colored organization on the lyceum.
They not only sing and play the old
southern melodies, but include some
of the most difficult male quartet
selections In their repertoire, and they
are equally good in both classes ot
music. The only lecture on the course
will be given by Charles Howard
Plattenburg, who has been one of the
most popular lecturers for several
seasons past. His subject will : be
"Worms Beneath the Bark." Maude
Stevens and her company of artists
will close the course with an evening
of music, monologues and bird imita
tions. Dates are as follows:
