NEGLECTS GRAND CANAL.
China Laying Up Trouble for Future,
Shanghai, Sept 21 A writer in the
North China Herald protests against
the. ruin which is being allowed to
overtake the great triumph of engi
neering, the Grand Canal of China
The government, he points out ,1 al
lowing the canal to go to decay. The
lower stretches have within the past
few months been allowed to become
the habitat of organized and aggres
sive river pirates, who fire into steam
launches and plunder passenger boats
and cargo boats indiscriminately. In
the upper regions of the canal there
li, on the other hand, a constant
shortage of water, or so much that it
cannot be utilized. A more perfect
provision by nature of vast naturnl
dams in the great lakes of southwest
Shantung and northern Kalngstt It
would be difficult to find anywhere,
but they are cither unused or mis
used. The writer goes on to allude to the
silling-up of the erratic Yellow river,
which Is now in many places as much
above the level of all the surrounding
country as the second story of a houie
above the ground Those who know
best, he says, predict another tre
mendous calamity from this source in
the not distant future. Then there
will be exclamations of surprise that
it did not come sooner, and howls for
funds for "relief." Millions of Chi
ne jc will be impoverished, hundred!
of thnsands of them will be rendered
homeless, and tens of thousands of
them drowned and starved.

St. Petersburg, Sept. 22 The chol

St. Petersburg. The efforts of the

the other preventive measures taken
have had but little if any effect in
checking the spread of the epidemic.
Between noon of Sunday and noon of
Monday the municipal hospitals re

the addition of the statistics from the
military and suburban hospitals for
