But It Is far mora Important that tho

of that question will bo more Import
ant to tho ontlro Pacln Coast than
any other question that will ba con
sldersd at the neit session of Con
gress." Id 1 1 Tolls Bar ta Trafla.
Mr. Barrett has given a great deal
of time to tho study of canal rates,
and tho trade poeslollltles that can i bs
developed onco th canal Is open. To
extent of this trsds will b governed
largely by th tolls flxed by Congress.
If thos tolls b exces.lv. trade wt.l
cot develop rapidly, and much of th
trans-continental buslnees will con
tinue to bs bandied by th rallroada
On tb other hand. If the tolls ar
mad reasonable, trsds will naturally
soxk that channeU and the great balk
ef tra.tlo between the Atlantlo and th
Paeiflo seaboards will g via
"mV" BarTett. after looklRC Into tit
question at length. Is not in for of
granting free paaaag through th
canal to all American vessels, though
fc. believes It might b reasonable to
extend this privilege to ships ensured
exclusively In coast wis trade. or In.
stance, r thinks It might b well to
Impos no tohs upon vessels Ply'0
between Portlsnd. Puget Bound. San
Francisco and other Paclno Coast ports,
and tho ports alone; the Atlantlo and
Culf Coast, provldrd such vessels, sn
rout, do not take cff at any foreign
port. ... .
Reprisal Skoald B Avoided.
On th other hand. If fre passage
through th canal should b granted
to American ships whim do carry cargo
from Central and South American ports
and ports In the Caribbean Bee, as well
as from ports In th United States, h
believes that foreign governments
would Immediately sntsr protest, for
In that event such American ships
would b In competition with ships fly
In a foreign flair. While Mr. Barrett
recognizee that this Government Is not
In sny way bound to recognise this
distinction between various American
ships, he believes that If American
ships engaged In foreign trade ar
permitted to pss through tho canal
without th psyment of tolls, foreign
governments unquestionably would re
taliate by Increasing port charges
sgalnst Amsrlcsn ships visiting their
ports, and thus handicap them to a ma
terial extent. H therefor thinks It
would be far more advisable. If free
passage Is to be extended to any ships,
that it be reetrloted to vessels engsged
solely In the coastwise trad.
Mr. Barrett's attention wss called to
the fart that Colonel Qoethals. In Ms
annual report, advocated heavy tolls,
so that the canal. In addition to being
self-sustaining, should also repay the
cost of construction. He said fhat that
Idsa was advanced solely by Colonel
Ooethals as an engineer, and h be
lieved that If Colonel Ooelha's wer
pressed for an elaboration of his opin
tlon ho would favor th fixing of
reasonable tolls, so as to encourage
the use of the canal.
In view of th vest Importance of
th Panama Csnal to th Pacific Coast.
Mr. Barrett Is desirous that the states
along th Paoirie Ocean shall exhibit
th utmost Interest In this question
even more Interest than has thus far
been displayed and If any delrcatlon
Is to be sent to Washington, he believes
It Important that that delegation shall
devote muoh of It time to Panama
Canal legislation.

The Bad Boy and
The Crosby Poem
BT ADDISON BENNETT.
AB I read th. editorial on th. Trent
affair In Th. Morning ' Oregonlan
Saturday, my memory carried mo back
to tho Mason and Slidell episode, as tho
affair Is mor. frequently spoken of.
I waa at th. time a lad of 17, living
In Now Tork City, boarding at a house
kept by a Mrs. Sanderson, a widow
whose husband had at one time been

Ho left one child, a daughter. Sarah
by name, and she had been blind from
birth. She was a young lady of much
beauty, a fins mind, well educated, a
talented musician, and the idol of the
volunteer firemen. Each year they
gave a ball and musicals in her honor,
and enough was made by these annual
events to keep her In comfort.
Around Sarah Sanderson there grew
up a colony of the Intellectual blind of
that great city, and as a leader among
these was Miss Fannie Crosby. It was
Sarah and Miss Crosby and their set
who brought Blind Tom to the atten
tion of the public, his first appearance
being at one of these annual balls given
to Sarah, I think In the Winter of 1860.
possibly 1861. At the time there was a
quasi-literary paper published in New
Tork called the Sunday Mercury, and
Miss Crosby was a constant contribu
tor to Its columns, as were many others
who later won recognition as great
literary lights. Scores of Miss Crosby's
poems were given to the world through
the columns of tho Mercury. When
Mason and Slidell were taken from tho
steamer Trent by Captain Wilkes, or
rather when the news reached New
Tork, there was tremendous exoltement,
snd at th. first it seemed that war with
England was imminent. As th. news
came to Mies Crosby she sat down In
Miss Sanderson's room and wrote a
poem dealing with tn. event m ierm
of great severity, and she handed the
copy to me and asked me to take It
to the Mercury office for publication a
day or two later.
I started with it all right enough,
and my Intentions were good, but in

Crosby was greatly incensed, but even
before her anger cooled It was seen
that a grave error had been committed,
and unless this country backed up we
would have a war not only with Eng
land, but possibly with France.
And hen, a short time later, I "fessed
up to Miss Fanny, as ws called her, she
was exuberant In her thanks for my
neglect. But the poem was lost to tho
world of letters, for I never waa able
to find It and she had no copy.
