WASl UNGTON, Nov. 13.-Presldcnt
Taft tonight Issued a proclamation fixing
the rates that foreign ships shall pay
for passage through tho Panama canal.
The 'proclamation, made under authority
of the canal bill passed by congress In
August, establishes a merchant vessel
rate of $1.20 per net ton In actual carrying
capacity, with a reduction of 40 per cent
for ships In ba'last.
The provisions of tho proclamation are
"On merchant vessels carrying passen
gers or cargo, $1.20 per- net vessel ton-
each 100 cublo feet of actual earning
"On vessels in ballast without passen
gers or cargo, 40 per cent less than the
rate, of tolls for vessels with passengers
"Upon vessels other than transports,
colliers, hospital ships and supply ships,
j0 cents per displacement ton.
"Upon army and navy transports, col
liers, hospital ships and supply ships, J1.20
per net ton. tho vessels to be measured by
wthe sumo rules as aro employed In deter
mining the net tonnage of merchunt ves,
"Tho secretary of, war will prepare and
prescribe such rules for tho measurement
of vessels and such rcgulattlons as may
bo necessary and proper to carry this
proclamation Into full forco and effect."
American coatwlso shipping was ox-
impted from toll payment by congress.
It was on this provision of the act that
Great Britain protested, but no reference
to the 'protest was made In tho president's
oroclamation. American naval vessels ore
exempted without specific mention cither
In tho act of congress or tho proclama

Tllo "rates', named In tho proclamation
are practically tho same as those which
wlil be in force at the Suez canal next
Tho 'president based his declaration of
rates upon the report and Investigation of
I'rof. -Emery R- Johnson of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania, an expert desig
nated by executive order for the task.
Tho report has been awaited with in
terest by shipping Interests throughout
According to Prof. Johnson's report to
the president, also made public tonight,
tho Panama canal should be upon a self
mstalnlng basis In twenty years. It
rhould competo successfully with tho Suez
route for traffic of Europe with South
American west coast points and with
New Zealand, but cannot be expected to
compete successfully for Europe's trade
tj the far cast.
Taking the estimates of the canal com
m'stlon .for expenses of operation and
maintenance of tho canal and for the
Improvements held to bo necessary at the
' Tnd of a decade Prof. Johnson figures
that the rate pcr-.ton $an bo reduced at
the end of ten years to SI. Even with
thN rate.' Which ho says probably will
correspond clpscly with the rato that
may thcr) bo enforced through the Suez
canal, the United States will obtain
enough revenue from foreign vessels to
