With the present critical military situation in the near east, officials are anxiously awaiting developments in the vicin ity of the Suez canal, which may mean much in the final outcome of the war. Statistics obtained from the navy department give a fairly complete idea of the important points of the canal. An official summary" of the facts says: "The Suez canal was constructed and is controlled and operated by a French company. The British gov eminent owns somewhat less than one-half the shares. These were pur chased from the khedive of Egypt in 1875. ' ' "Without locks, . connecting the Mediterranean with the Red sea, opened for navigation November 17, ! 1S69. "Cost, with improvements to date. about $127,000,000. "Length of canal from High light house at Port Said to its junction with the Red sea, about 87 nautical miles (66 miles actual canal and 21 miles lakes). "Width of the- floor (originally 72 feet) by 1908 had been increased to 121 feet throughout, and is now be ing widened under a program calling lor a minimum width of 134.6 inches. "Depth throughout main navisrahlo channel (originally 26 feet) now 32 feet and nine inches, admitting res sels of 28 feet draft. Dredging now going on, and it is proposed to ob tain a depth of 36 feet throughout, which will afford a safe passage through to vessels up to 32 feet draft. "Time of transit ordinarily is 16 hours and 11 minutes, but dn entirely upon circumstances, as the vessel is in charge of an official of the company, who determines the nour ot departure of. each ship and all subsequent stopping and startin as well as all other., movements of the ship, in such a manner as to giye full security to navigation, as well as to insure as rapid passage as pos sible of mail steamers. "No ship can demand as a right an immediate passage through. "Vessels proceed under their own steam. "Gross receipts: 1912. 127.005.069! 1913. $23,075,70S; 1914. .24,140.398." There are several striking differ ences between the Suez and the Pan ama canals. A short summary of iacts relating to the latter follows, as given out officially: "Length from deep water to deep water. 30 miles. "Bottom width of channel, mini mum (9 miles at Culebra cut) 300 feet. "Time of transit through complet ed canal. 10 to 12 hours. "There are six double locks to the canaL No vessel is permitted to en ter or pass through the lock3 under its own power. Electricity is used to tow all vessels into and through the locks and to operate all gates and valves." Jl Every day is summer in Daytona.
