Since announcement that the Panama canal probably will be ready for through navigation by July, this year, many letters of Inquiry regard In the conditions to bo Imposed have been coming to the canal authorities from alt parts of the world. It Is apparent that steamship companies of all the great maritime nations expect to make arr al most Immediate ue of the canal. The complications also Indicate that In virtually all cases the companies con template a through service from European ports to those on the west coast of North, Central and South American countries. Among the Inquiries arc those regarding tolls, conditions of navigation, pilotage In entering the terminal ports and through the canal, and tho charges for this service, wharfago facilities at Palboa and Chrlstobal, location nnd equipment of repair shops, coaling and provisioning facilities, and a host of other Horns relating directly to tho usago of he canal.

Hteamsnip companies wnien al ready are represented on tho Isthmus have sent their local representatives to the canal officials seeking similar In formation. It Js apparent to the canal authorities that as soon as tho waterway shall have teen thrown open much greater use of It will be made than has boon anticipated.

This subject seems not to have been settled tu the satisfaction of tho companies who desire to be Informed whether tolls will bo charged at all, and. If so. At what rata. The letters Indicate that most of tho companies aro preparing for a heavy passenger traffic through the canal next year at or about the time of tho formal openlnx and thence to the exposition at Ban Francisco, Schedules of charges aside from tolls for various services .to be performed by the Panama canal .ore In the course of preparation and probably will bo pro mulgated In' an official circular from the coventor's office In the near future.
