WASHINGTON, No. IT. Some ttmo
next summer or fall, no 'exact datd being
specified, a vessel wilt pass from tho At
lantlc to tho Pacific oceans across what
Is now tho Isthmus of Panama, which
consequently must disappear from tho
world's geography, and by tho same
human agency, tho western hemisphere
will be divided Into two continents. The
vessel will not bo tho Oregon nor any
other famous ship, but will bo, one of
the many small water craft In dally use
by the canal builders; and probably tho
only passenger will bo Colonel George
V. Gocthals, and the staff of American
engineers, who for tho last eight years
have bocn carrying on tho greatest en
gineering work tho world has over seen.
It will be later than that, ang-where from
six months to a year, perhaps, before'
tho formal oponlng of tho waterway will
tako place and a naval fleet headed by
the famous old Oregon, will pass through
Into tho western ocean, and tho canal
may be fairly sold to be open to trade, j

These facts aro not of official record
as yet ;tho date of January 1. 1915, still

without waiting for the completion of tho

great locks being built In duplicate, side
by side, not only to udd to the capacity
of tho canal, but to Insure its conunu
mien in oDcratlon In caso of a serious
accident to a'shlp In one of tho locks.
The report shows a most satisfactory
state of progress of tho whole great work;
though In vie w of tho fact that It la dated
September 10, last, the figures regarding
excavation, placing of concrete, erection
of dams and locks and subsidiary works
are pot as recent as those contained In
the regular monthly reports. Naturally
the most Interesting feature of the report
relates to to operations In the great
Culebra cuU Here great landslides, many
ranking with an Alpine avalanche In
magnitude, have so Increased tho amount
of material to be excavated that were It,
not found possible steadily to reduce tho
cost per yard of dredging and steam
shoveling through the growing expert
ness of the employes and Improved, en
elneoring methods, the total cost of ex
cavation would havo been vastly greater
than tho estimates. During the last year
nearly 1&500.000 cubic yards of earth were
taken out of this cut, leaving nearly 12,.
000,000 to be displaced beforo the canal
can be opened. Tho damage caused by
tho slides may be appreciated from the
fact that nearly 6,000,000 yards of earth
excavated was so composed, or nearly S6
per cent of tho total excavation.
One Way to Denl frith Slides.
There Is only one way to deal with
these slides, and that Is to dig them
out as they occur, though some help
Is gained by terracing tho upper banks.
That Is because' the geological formation
changes so frequently and suddenly that
no other effective treatment had been
found. So unstable Is the earth that the
material In on part of the cut begins to
move on an Inclination as low as one on

Said to Be Restored
in Tobacco Trade
NEW YORK, Nov. 17.-In order not to
rest under campaign misrepresenta
tions. Pcrclval a Hill, president of tho
American Tobacco company, in a state
ment Issued today, details the process of
disintegration which tho company has
undergone In compliance with tho final
decree of the United States supremo
court Issued November 16, 1911, and the
competitive conditions resulting there
from. To show the drastic nature of tho
dissolution of the so-called tobacco trust.
Mr. Hill cites tho distribution among the
shareholders of securities valued at $100,-
000,000. and earning $9,000,000 a year, Uy
means of these securities tho trust con
trolled the licorice business, tho tin foil
business, the United Cigar Stores com
pany, alliances, with two foreign to
bacco companies, tho American Snuff
company, and tho It. J. Ileynolds com
pany. Two of the absorbed manufactur-
Ing concerns, the Liggett & Myers and
tho P. Lorlllard companies, were re
created with definite properties, brands
and. businesses, on the terms and condl
tions named by tho court.
Control of the divided parts of tho
trust by overlapping directors or other
means Is guarded against by perpetual
and continuing Injunctions. These In
Junctions prohibit co-operation In buying
the raw material or In selling the manu
factured product, or for tho apportion
ment of trade either with respect to cus
tomers or locality, and requires main
tenance of separate offices, clerical
forces. Officers, directors and agents,
and prohibits tho purchase of stock In
any of the others, or tho making of
loans or otherwise rendering financial
aid to one another.
Since tho disintegration of tho tobacco
trust was completed on February 23, 1912,
Mr. Hill states that competition in tho
trade, both In buying and soiling, has
been complete and effective, for evidence
of which he points to higher prices for
the tobacco crop and tho independence
of jobbers and retailers.

drcssod by Acting Secrotary Oliver to tho
governors of all the states and territories
Inviting their co-opetatlon In tho war
collcgo plans for tho organization for tho
militia into twclvo technical divisions.
Tho letters point out that If the militia
is to bo used as a field forco effectively
In war tlmo It can effectively be done
by this system of divisions, and to In
sure the proper worktng of tho plan nil
of the details should bo worked out In
time of peace.
In tho outline of the divisions no places
Is given to separate companies of In
fantry, which, It is said, should bo ab
sorbed Into regiments or other" larger
organizations. Field armies would bo
formed by tho grouping of two or more
divisions of the mllltlu. or by comb nlng
one or two divisions of militia with one
of tho regular troops. Regular organiza
tions would form from tho fourth brigade
of any division assigned to a field army
for tho reason that tho organized mlllOa
is localized, whllo tho regular army must
go anywhere upon call.
Some monoy will bo available for tho
assintance of tho state authorities. The
War department also proposes to detail
inspector-Instructors to assist stato off!
clals, and war material for the mllltta
will bo distributed and stored In suitable
depots to bo at hand locally when mob
ilization Is ordered.
