the tltlo of commissioners, not only ,
receive a much lower compensation,
hut are assigned much smaller fields
of activity. Tho president also has
carried out his scheme of dividing up
tho work of canul building amang the
commissioners, so that nominally net- (
log ns a body on stated occasions, .
each Individual member would operate
In a special field. Tho head of the
commission Is a trained railway man,
chosen for his administrative abilities
in tho financial and purchasing field;
tho now governor of the zone is a
lawyer, who also has had to do with ,
etato affairs; tho engineer comnils- ,
slonor already Is known for his abll-
itlos in tho execution of the practical
work of canal cutting. Tho other j
members of the commission are placed j
to comply with tho law as to tho num
ber of tho commission, but are men
of high ability as hydraulic engineers.
Secretary Taft told them that they
woro expected to bIiow results and
that Is said to bo tho koynoto for the
Personnel of Commission.
The personnel of tho now canal com
mission Is as follows: Theodore P.
Shouts, chulrman; Charles E. Magoon,
governor of canal zono; John F. Wal
lace, chief engineer; Hear Admiral M.
T. Endlcott, U. S. N.; Brigadier Gen
eral Potor C. Haines, U. S. A., retired;
Colpnel Oswald M. Ernst, corps engi

Tho president has mado an order
allowing a salary of $7,500, with trav
eling expenses, to each member of tho
commission, and to the chairman of
tho committee tho additional compen
sation of $22,500, to tho chief engineer
an additional compensation of $17,500
and to tho governor of tho zone tho
Additional compensation of $10,000.
Tho head of each department Is al
lowed tho use or a furnished house on

der tho former commission amounts
After their Induction Into oftlco and
their consultation with Secretary
Taft, tho commissioners mot In tho
fflco of Governtfr Magoon and had a
brief talk over tho reorganization
plans. Under tho president's order
tho actual headquarters of tho com
mission will bo In Panama, and there

cient force to carry on tho work of
