IS. Arturo UnUurrags, tho Chilean cngt- neer, baa definitely determined to abau don Ms efforts to obtain from the Co lombia government a concession for his canal project, owing o the fear enter talned by Colombia of reprisals on the part of the United States. Undurra ga'a plan was to construct a rival to the Panama canal. In furtherance of his plan for a canal, Undurraga sought to Induce con gressmen and members of tho diplo matic corps to Inspect the route at his expense, but all declined. A Colombian official has stated that it appeared inopportune to grant a con cession to the Chileans before the adoption of the treaty defining the boundary between Panama and Co lombia. When this matter had been settled, he added, tho government probably would grant tho concessions. Letters exhibited here indicate the willingness of German and British capitalists to build a commercial and non-political canal that could not be closed in event of war. Unless the concession is granted it Is feared discontent fomenting at Antio quia and Cauea will culminate in a re vival of threats of secession. Undurraga will sail on November 27 for England by way of New York., The president and congress have ap pointed a commission to investigate tho separation of Panama from Colombia. Francisco de Bonis, recently ap pointed minister to the United States, sailed for that country today. PLATINUM FOUND IN SAND. Discovery Will Mean Much to Coast Misers ln Small Way. Los Angeles, Nor. 18. Davis T. Day, United States geological director of government petroleum work on the Pacific coast, left here tonight to make a report to the government in Wash ington. Mr. Day alio is in charge of the research work in connection with platinum mining on the coast. For several months be has conducted an investigation of tho beach sands from Capo Flattery to Lompoc Before leaving tonight he said; "I believe that when the facts con cerning the platinum- mining Industry as we have found them are known, a great stimulus will bo given. "Platinum can be taken from the sands of this coast in paying quantities by a simple mechanical process at lit tle expense. While the industry is not likely to attract the attention of the big corporations, it will prove of im mense interest to the miner in a small way." CASE CENTURY OLD ENDS.

Qxe)Jvll from tat rk J I am told that Germany spends several million marks annually to raise trees, and receives annually mora than twlco I as ruuca money irom (do saio 01 uniuvr than sho expends. I would also advocate tho imposing upon all logged off lands a basio tax,00 Ne ?-00 M,ul8 ln Whitman sufficiently high to insuro their revert ing naturally to the stato for a reason able compensation, tho lands to bo util ised in raising trees for futro genera tions; tho levying of this tax to bo sus pended in caso private owners should wish to set nsido their loggod-off lands for tho purpose of raising timber under state regulations; this timber to pay a cutting tax at tho time it is cut. The details of such a tax and tho set ting asida of logged oil lands for tho raising of timber by private owners are matters that can bo worked out; tho in terests of the people protected; the rev enue which the timber and lumber in tcrests should rightfully pay the state provided, but collected in such a inau ner as will help conserve our forosts in stead of encouraging owners to cut and wasto them, as under our present system of taxation. I am firmly of the opinion that if our forests are to bo conserved and new forests grown, tho first step necessary is the revision or evolutlonlx ing of our system of taxation.
