WALLACE TALKS OF CANAL
Former Ohdinuan of Commission Gives
Opinion on Type of Aqueduct.
PREFERS SEA LEVEL CONSTRUCTION
Ad, lee' lu Maaner uf uperatlng
Railroad la Alas Given by
.Man Hh Once Headed
WASHlNUroN, March 30.-John t Wal
lace, formerly chief engineer ot the Isth
mian Canal commission, today testified be
fore the senate committee concerning the
type of canal to be constructed acroes the
Isthmus of Panama. He was asked to
state his views and prefaced hla examina
tion with a general statement, which In
Mr. Wallace, In advocating an arproxl.
mately atrnlght, sea level canal' of atiiple
Width and depth ,as the; best .type, urged
that any other plan which pl.icca restric
tions upon the probable. pormahency of the
canal Itself, aa well as upon the speed and
the size and number of vessels passing
through it, must render the canal far lees
valuable; that the only deterrent factors !n
this connection are relative time and cost,
and (hat in approaching tho discussion
the question of how much money the
American people supposedly are willing to
Invest In the canal and how much time
they are willing to wait for its proper ac
complishment should be considered. He
said that Judged by the capitalization and
dividends now paid upon Ue a look of Uie
Sues car.al, it la apparent that the, rates
charged for transit through it are exces
sive and that thus a. material saving would
be offered commerce by the Panama route,
Assuming that the present tonnage
through the Sues of. say, 10,tX),0e0 tons
per year, would pass through the Panama
canal, even at II a ton there would be an
approximate Income of Jlu.OW.000, which is
sufficient to Justify an expenditure of tMO.-
The later figure he deemed ample to con
struct the sea level canal. As to the ad
ditional time Involved, Mr. Wallace pre
dicted that upon a basis of "reasonable
energy and the use of proper business
methods of administration a sea level canul
can be fully completed in ten. to, to be en
tirely eafe, say, twelve years, and a lock
cansl, even If only sixty feet above sea
level, would require only three years lees."
Favors a Contract.
II reiterated tnat lncreaaed efficiency
could be secured if the work were handled
by a single contracting firm, unhampered
by goernment methuda and with every
j Incentive to early completion with possi
bly utilisation of two shifts Instead of one
shift of ten hours.
Mr. Wallace contended If It was not too
much to hope trat the committee will de
cline to recommend anjr . farm of canal
which la not capable to being In the future
truuaformud into a sea level canal without
undue Interference with the world's traffic,
or undue additional, cost, that this fact
alone ahould take the recommendations
ot the minority of the board ot consulting
engineers and the recommendations of the
majority of the Isthmian canal commission
be left out of really aertuua consideration.
Mr. Wallace questioned whether con
gress would feel Justified in Indorsing the
construction of any dam of large dimen
sions, retaining a head of water, say
elghty-Bve feet, the fouunatlon of which
does not extend to bedrock or to some
equally Imperable and reliable strata.
"Is It either safe or wise," he sskd,
"to authorise the building of a dam one
and one-half miles long to retain a head
of water of eighty-five feet across an al
luvial valley, similar lo the valley of the
Chagnes at Clatun, in which exists al
ready two subservlce gorges, one of which
alone Is feet across and 24(1 feet
deep, which haa evidently been refilled
with a heterogeneous mass of gravel, sand,
etc., brought down bv mountain streams."
Keare Bis; lant.
With this situation in view," he said,
"it is greally to be feared that the dam
at Oatun, proposed by a minority board
of the consulting engineers and endorsed
by a majority oflhe Isthmian canal com
mission, might, after some years, be found
Hntapabla of withstanding the strain
He pointed out reasons for apprehension
on thla point and aald his remarks on
this subject applied, though in a leaser
drgrec, to the series of dams and barrages
holding back a head of fifty-five feet ot
water, which It la proposed by tbe minor
ity report to construct across the alluvial
valley ot the Rio Orande. on the Pacific aid
of the canal. If it la decided to build
lock canal, Mr. Wallace said, then it la
to be earnestly hoped only such form of
luek runs I will be authorised a will be

Is, l.e said, no urgency that to his mind
would Justify the great risk of earth dams
at Oatun or La Boca.
The army engineers, he said, could most
efficiently supervise the contractor and
all the governmental functions. Including
policing, and sanitation could easily be
performed under the control and direction
of the governor of the canal sone. Mr.
Wallaco pointed out that in considering
additional time required for the construc
tion of a sea level cansl. the prompt and
efficient utilisation of the Panama railroad
Is a matter of great Importance.
Aa to Railway Management.
Mr. Wallace said there are two sugges
tions which had been subjected to careful
review because of criticisms passed on
them. First, that tho railroad should be
substituted for canal while the latter' Is
being constructed. If ao, he said. It should
be completely separated in management
und control from any steamship line at
either end, nnd the transfers from ship
to ship should be at a flat rate per ton.

UghT-'and bulify nVfi'ctes should be rated'

exceed 12 per ton. and this reduced as
buslpesa -Increases, t'nder such a system
of administration, he urged, there Is no
occasion Jor the Panama canal to retain
a corporate existence, with officers In New
Tork. for the road can be better con
trolled by a single competent railway man
ager on the Isthmus. This arrangement
alone, he said, would save a large annual
expenditure, which, he "asserted. Is now
apparently wasted on the Panama railroud
organization "aad would do away with
the complexities which that organisation
proposes, while at the same time the em
barrassing questions arising from the al
liance of steamship lines with the transit
across the Isthmus could be separately
considered on their mertt.s.'
In closing, Mr. Wallace sold:
It Is much easier to retain and regulate
the movement of traflic along llnps to
which It has been accustomed than it is
to regain it after It. has been once diverted
to new routes, and the committee ought
not to overlook the completion of the
Tehuantepeo route. whiHi t now being
provided with every kind of facility for
handling traffic from shin to cars and from
cars to ship across that Isthmus, and
which. It Is siiKgested, ought to be Im
mediately provided at Panama.
At the afternoon session Mr. Wallace
discussed engineering questions. He con
demned the Oatun dam project, proposed
by the minority plana, and declared that
the Culebra cut waa the greatest obstacle
to the sea level canal.
In reply to questions by Senator Morgan
Mr. -Wallace went over the ground covered
previously concerning his experiences on
the lathmus with Chairman Pliontx, Hecre-
tary Taft und Mr. Cromwell. He said
Mr. Shonts had told him that the president
had promised him (Mr. ghonta) domination
over the other members of the commission.
He thought members of the Walker com
mission suspected Cromwell of being re
sponsible for their dismissal. He closed
with general testimony concerning nitra
tions on the isthmus.

STORY OF THE STOCK BOOR
(Continued from First Page.)
OH company stock were made out to the
trustees of the Standard Oil trust. The wit
ness later admitted that the Standard OH
trust and the Standard Oil company of
Now Jersey were the same.
Stock certificate No. 34 showed that one
share of stock had been Issued to C. M.
Pratt of Brooklyn, and Mr. Adnins ad
mitted that Mr. Pratt was In Home way
connected with the Standard OH company.
One sharn of stock was also Issued to H.
M. Tllford, In 1S31. one to the witness in
1892, bot the latter waa transferred to Silas
M. Payne, who. the witness admitted, was
connected with the Standard Oil company.
It was proved by the reading of the stock
certificates that the Standard Oil company
of New Jersey, in 19fO. held as much stock
of the old concern as M. M. VanBuren of
Ardsley-on-the-Hudsolt holds In the Waters
Pierce company at the present day.
The exact number of shares held by Mr.
Van Buren is 2,747, while the total number
shares of stock of the company is t.Ono.
These shares were first acquired by the
trusteea of the Standard Oil trust June 22.
18S2, when the capital stock of the Waters
Pierce company was Increased from $100,000
to $4i),000, and constituted a majority In
terest. Van Buren holds Shares.- .
When the old Waters-Pierce company
waa dissolved, In June, 1CM, the same 2,747
shares wcre transferred to M. M. Van
Buren. Mr. Hadley endeavored to show
that these shares are still held by "Van
Buren for the Standard Oil company. Ho
asked Mr. Adams whether the dividends
declared .on thoso shares were not divided
proportionately among officers and stock
holders of the Standard OH company, par
ticularly H. M. Tllford. Adams pleaded
Ignorance of what became of the money
after paying dividends had been made.
There was then Introduced a letter writ
ten by M. M. Van Buren to Adams dlre.-i
Ing that dividends on the former's stoc.
In the Waters-Pierce Oil company should
be puid by check Into the Seaboard Na
tional bank of New Tork.
This letter was dated Ardsley-on-the-Hudson,
N. Y.. July 1, 1904, afid was

was a debate as to whether the house could '
get as good packing boxes as the senate dlil '
