Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bee Leased Wire.
New York, Aug. 21. If it were 9afe
to draw inferences from the course
of markets in the late period of sum
mer, the past week would have sug
gested financial wariness and lassi
tude, a condition in which absence of
any district event which would make
for confidence offsets knowledge that
the lately active forces of acute de
pression have ceased to operate.
Prices have, for the most part, drifted
downward and on the stock exchange
various industrial stocks have got
to what Wall Street cails "a new
low level" for the year. But the de
cline has not been violent; it ha
been of a tentative character and va
ried by frequent recoveries.
Attitude More Reassuring.
Nothing has hannen In ,k- v.

Ing. These considerations, however, do
not mean much more than .i,at v. ,i .
tructive influences may have spent their
force. Something more Is necessary to
prove that a new turn in the aituatlon is
actually at hand.
Still the present attitude of doubt and
uncertainty Is always apt to prevail at
"' "" ," cr. even wnen a distinct
revival of trade la th
have been many yeara when th 'h .
summer gave little or no Indication. The
,.m i th. ,actual business situation
would almost invariably begin with the
resumption of ordinary business aettvltle

Great Tunnel and
In U. S. Foreseen
Breaking of Ground for New
Hudson River Tube Sym
bolizes Projects To Be
When the workingmcn a few days
ago put the spade info the ground
upon the Manhattan side of the Hud
son river so that in that way there
could be beginning of the construc
tion of the shaft which is to be used
in building the world's largest tunnel
under the Hudson, they symbolized
by that act the magnitude of artifi
cial facilities for transportation
which are to be taken within a few
years, some of which have already
From the broad noint of view
these bridge, tunnel and canal activi
ties demonstrate the faith which not
only capital but the people of. the
United States have m the wonderful
growth of this country. Many hun
dred millions are to be invested in
the, construction of gigantic bridges,
great tunnels and some canals. This
investment means a conviction that
the transportation facilities of the
United States must be so greatly in
creased within a few years as to be
adequate for the enormous demands
which will be made upon tnem.
Tunnel Vnder Narrow.
Juat as the contractor who ar now
digging the first shaft for the new Hud
son river tunnel wer saying that they
would complete the shaft early in Sep
tember, the authoritative committee of
New York City was preparing for the con
struction of a tunnel under the narrow
of New York harbor.- by meana of which
Staten Island and Long Island will be
brought Into physical contact. The state
legislature has authorized the construc
tion ef this tunnel, but thl authority
waa obtained many year after th sug
gestion wis first made by the late Austin
Corbln that Staten laland. which I the
greatest In area of any of the borough
which as a whole make up Greater New
York, should no lonsrrr b Isolated by
water, but should be brought into phii
cal touch, with 7ong Island.
William J. Wllgue. who is the consult
ing engineer of the city board, which ha
authority for giving nut contracts for con
struction of. this contemplated tunnel, has)
been ao successful In some of his earlier
undertakings that his opinion 1 accepted
a worth heeding. He has no douht about
the ability of modern engineer familiar
with tunnel construction to prepare ade
quate plana whereby thl artificial union
between Staten Island and Long Inland
can be secured.
Klectrtfied ttiatlon Approach.
For it wa Colonel Wllrus who. as vies
president of the New York Central Rail
road company, initiated upon absolutely
original" lines the electrification of that
railroad's approach to the Grand Central
station. Ther ha never been a flaw
discovered In this work. Afterwards he
worked out the plan whereby the con
etructlon of the tunnel under the Detroit
river could bo economically and easilv
carried on and that tunnel stands today
as a monument to Colonel WllguV abil
ity. Now he I about to direct the con
struction of the tunnel under the nar
rows of New York harbor.
oome zo year ago General Serrell said
that If he were 30 years younger he would
have part In th construction nf hridrea
and tunnel which would bring the var-
ouo section or tne city of New York
nto comDlete touch. Tfa want f.rth.r
than that, saying that in time majectlr
I au,P'nE,on bridge and new tonnels would
ne constructed eaat and west and north
enu soutn in the United Statea. General
Serrel spoke with some authority, al
though he was 80 year of eg at the
time. He was the engineer who eurveyed
the original Panama railroad.
Built Hoosne Tunnel.
He - was called to Massachusetts to
undertake to complete the long unfinished
Hoosac tunnel. And Massachusetts did
not grudge th payment which was
made to him for he brought the eastern
and western shafts of that mountain
tunnel, each two mile In length, together
at the central point without a variation
of more than an lnch. He supervised tbe
construction of' the suspension bridge
over the Niagara river and at tho time
of his death he was planning the bulidlns;
of a tunnel upon the Isthmus of Panama,
through and under a great mountain, con
fident that a tunnel of this kind would
make possible a sea level canal In which
no locks 'would be needed.
General Serrell foresaw the future of
very great bridge end tunnel construc
tion in the United States. Philadelphia
has begun a demonstration Cf this modern
bridge building spirit by the construction
of one of the world'a largest bridges
whereby Philadelphia and Camden can
be brought Into physical contact.
Bridge at Detroit.
Although the tunnel under the Detroit
river has justified the large Investment
of capital which the construction entailed,
it is now realized that It is pot ade
quate for the enormous future transport,
tlon between Detroit and the east. There
fore 'Detroit contemplates the building of
a modern bridge of the suspension type
high above the Detroit river, a great via
luct furnishing passage way between
Canada and the United States.
New York is now beginning, in co
operation with New Jersey, the construc
tion of a tunnel under the Hudson which
may cost as much as $25,000,000, bur
whatever its cost It is to be large enousl"
to furnish adequate facilities for a:i..
conceivable movement of.traffij. Bur
even this is not to be enough. New
York and New Jersey now contemWai'f
the building of the world'se great st sus
pension bridge and the engineers say
that this can be done rapidly and v,-lth
eut orohtbltlve cost. ine impruie.i
canalisation of ttic Ohio river at or near
Louisville furnishes anotner niuatranoii
the foresight not only of capital, but of
the people. Hartford, Conn., a few yeara
Ago caused New Englgand's most attrac
tive bridge to be constructed over ili
Connecticut river and this i a splendid
viaduct having in its architectural fea
tures no superior.
South Caroline Canal.
On the other hand tho federal power
commission has granted a permit for the
construction of a canal In South Carolina
which will Join the navigable waters of
the Santee and Cooper rivers. The canal
will be 23 miles long and will, when com
pleted, ahorten the distance between Co
lumbia and the Atlantic by 73 miles am?
will give a total atl water route t
Charleston of 138 miles. The construc
tion of this canal. Thleh Is practical ,
assured because capital has been fountf
to flnsnee it. will add another to thi
demonstration which ar now being maa
of m-onderful activities in preparing foi
convenient transportation in the futur'
and It will alao Illustrate the noder
spirit which Is characterizing Charlestot
and in fact South Carolina. This era 01
very large bridge building, tunnel an
canal construction which has only recently
begun but will be continued for a lor.g
time, can be regarded confidently as a .
sure proof of the faith of the people la
the future of the United State.
