George W. Goethals chief engineer of
the Panama canal said today the ca-
nal would be completed by Septem-
ber 1 1912 at a cost of ? ;i60oi)o.niio.
This Is two years ahead of all ear-
lier estimates for completion of the
canal and fully $r.0i)tM''0i0 less than
many engineers have figured as the
Because of the early completion of
the canal Colonel Goethals urged the
house committee or. commerce to pre-
pare legislation under which can be
fixed shJVping tolls for passage of
vessls through the waterway.
Colonel Goethals could not say what
would be a fair charge but thought
$1 per net ton a vessel would be a
heavy tax on vessels using the canal
but would give tho trans-continenial
railroads competition on freight from
New York to San Francisco.
It is essential. Colonel Goethals
holds that the government control
the coal supply si at ions so as to pre-
vent private interests by monopoliza-
tion of this supply directly to con-
trol tho operation of the canal through
their rates for fuel.
Negotiations are already under way
by certain coal companies ho said
to secure the coal lands.
