The provisions ol the proclamation are as follows : 1. .Merchant vessels carrying passengers or cargoes $1.20 per not vessel ton-each 100 cubic loot-ot actual cjirning capacity. 2. On vessels in ballast without passengers or cargo, 40 per cent, less than the rale of tolls tor vessels with passengers or .cargo. .').

I'pon the army and navy transports, colliers, hospital ships" and supply ships, $1.20 per net ton, the \esseis to be n\easured by the iame rules as ^re employed in determining the net tonnage of the merchant vessels. The secretary of war will prepare and prescribe such rules for the mea-suremenl of ves.sels and such regulation as may he necessary and proper to carry this ptoclamation into iuU force and cBect. American coastwise shipping was exempted from toll payment by congress. U is this provision ol the act that Great lUitaiti diplomatically, protested, but no reference to the incident was made in the president's proclamation. American naval vessels are exempt with special mention either in the act of congress or of the proclamation, because the authorities believed it unnecessary to explain the uselessnpss of payment Irorn its navy department pocket fft tho one belonging to the treasury department. The rates named in the proclamation arc pr.ictically the same as thosa which will be in force at the Su�z canal ne.vt year. The I^resident based his declaration ot the rates upon the report and investigation of president lOmery Joljnson. The report has been awaited with interest by shipping interests Ihroughoiit the world. According to Prof. Johnson's report to the President, also made public tonight, the Panama eanal should be upon a self-sustaining basis in twenty years. It should confliete quickly with thtv, Suez route for the traffic of Kuropb with -South American west coast points, and witli New /jcaland, but cannot be expected to compete suc-cessfullv for Kurope's trade to tho Far Kast. Taking the estimate of the canal commission more e.vpen.ses of opera-lion and niaintenanc? of the canal and for the imprnvenients held to be' necessary at the end of a decade, Prof. .lohnson figures that the rate per net ton can he reduced at the end of ten years to $1.00. Kvcn �Mth this rate, which he says probably will correspond closely w'ith the rate that may then be enforced through tho Suez canal, the I'niled .States will have eumigli rovcnue from t(uei)�n vessels to pay all fixed charges, provide a sinking fund of one per cent, to retire the I'anaiua canal bonds and still find a yearly balance. The Johnson report shows that a foreign trnl-fic of alidut nine millioii tofis may li�! c.vpccled through the canal durinu its first two years of operation ; � traffic of fiioro than 11,000,000 tons in |f)20 and M,000,000 tons in 1025. Al-' though not maintaining that his estimate is final, Viol. Johnson declared that an increase of Rfl per cent, a decade in tonnage could be lookejl tor, and that this would make the canal self-sustaining in 'iO years.
