MISS LOUISE M'PHERSON
DEPLORES JAIL'S CONDITION
Miss Louise Mcfherson, well known
charity worker, visited police court and
was shown throut the city Jail. Miss
Mcpherson expressed herself strongly for
tho founding of a municipal farm, where
tho derelicts sentenced In police court
could bo furnished with good healthful
employment and still ba under the super

PANAMA, Slay 9. 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

Most of these question are addressed
to the governor of the Panama canal
. direct, while other are ent to Washing
ton and are forwarded to the Isthmus.
It Is planned to turn them over to the
newly appointed superintendent of trans
portation, who will be Instructed by tho
governor to supply tho doslred Informa- j
tlon. 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.
It ha been stated that not more than
1C,OCO,COO ton traffic could bo expected
for the first year the canal Is In opera
tion. The letters of Inquiry seem to
mako plain to the authorities hero that
already a greater tonage for tho first
vtar la Indicated.
I'nsaenRer Miicn Interested.
Passenger-carrying lines aro evincing
considerable Interest In the question of
passenger tolls through tho canal. 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
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
