That tlio Suck nnnl figuring so prom
inently in tho military operations to
which Turkey is n parly, is not the
first cnnnl that joined the Red Sen
with the Mediterranean, w briefly
told in n statement prepared for tho
press today by the National Geo
"From tho morning history, the
west linn sought to break into tho
east by wny of Suez. Somewhere
during tho years 1350-W00 . C, the
bgyptians, under Sett I nml Itnmcses
II, joined tho Nile by way of Lake
Tunsnh totlie Red Sea, thus owning
a vatenvay, tho' archetype of the
present canal, from tho Mediterran
ean, over the Sues Isthmus, to the
Orient. This ennnl was choked by
sand in the course of ages. Nceho,
about GOO H. C, bepm n ennui from
ancient Hubastw, nnd Darius llyetas
pis, ono hundred years inter, com
pleted the work, once more bringing
tho lied Sea and tho Kilo together.
Although nearly choked up by the be
ginning of the Christian era, it was
navigable to a degree as late as the
Battlo of Aotiuni, and some of Cleo
patra's ships escaped this way to the
"Trajan restored the cnnnl. It fell
into disuse nnd choked up again.
Amru, the Islamic conqueror of
Egypt, restored it for tho last time
in tho 7th century, connecting Cairo
with tho Red Sen. Napoleon caused
tho old route to bo surveyed, but was
forced to drop the project. After
him, Mcttornich, the great reaction
ary prirao minister of Austria-Hun
gary, stimulated a buez commission
in 1847. Nothing, however, came of
"As the world well knows, the Suez
canal was built by the man who fail
ed to build the. Panama Canal Count
Ferdinand deLcsscps. lis original
depth was 20 Vi feet, nnd its bottom
width 72 feet. It could accommodate
ships of 24 7-12 feet, but it was in
oKrntiou 11 years, beginning iu 1869
before vessels of such draft sought
pnssago. Hy 18890 its depth bad
been increased 29,i' fct n"d when
tho United States announced its in
tention to make n canal 41 feet deep
and 300 feet wide at its narrowed
bottom point at l'nnnma, tho work
nt Suez was extended so as ultimately
to give a bottom, width of 134'- feet
nnd n depth of 30 1-12 feet. It was
.expected that this enlargement would
bo complete by next year, but the war
hna interrupted operations.
"How much larger than tho aver
age demands for a canal the Pannma
waterway has been made is strikingly
shown by a statement from Suez to
the effect that only one per cent of
the ships scckint; pnssago by that
route havo n draft of 28 feet.
"In 18S9, ten vcsels passed
through the Suez canal. Iu 1912,
5,373 ships steamed through, of 20,
275,120!ct tonnage, and paying for
this privilege around 25,000,000.
Seven out of every ten of these ships
flew tho British flag. Lnglnud has
dominated tho cnnnl ever binco the
Khedive, in 1875, sold his 17C,602
canal shares for $20,000,000, to the
British government. These shnre
arc now worth close to .200,000,000.
Tho society nlso gave out the fol
lowing bhort pen picture of the city
of Rhiems, which has suffered so
heavily iu tho many wars in whjeh
France lias participated. .
"Tho touriuts' Ithciins was quiet
nnd peaceful, even induhtrinl and
.commercial peace and neighborly for
bearance seeming to reign theie. The
whole nppcnmuco of tho place made
its warlike history seem as distant
and unreal as the romance of folk
lore. Rheims was one of the most
sleepy of nil truly prosperous cities.
"It preserved with tenacity an air
reminiscent of tho middle ages. Its
homes were old-stylo, its streets
were cobbly, and its young men and
women regularly danced iu the open
night on the naked sands ami gravel
of the parks, ns their forebears had
dono under the Louis's. Rheiuw, des
pite its more than proper shuro of
stirring, tumultuous history nnd the
wealth which its commerce and indus
try had brought to it, maintained
nn attitude of listless reflection upon
tho days when the kings of France
were crowned with nil manner of
proud show iu its wonderful cathe
dral, lthcims went into a calmly
progressive doe, if there can be Mich
a thing, just nfter it witnessed the
most thrilling event iu all its history
the crowning of Charles VII. pre
sided over by deathless Jean of Arc.
"This biunll French city has been
one of tho restful places of the world
between wnrs, but war has awakened
it mora often and caused it more of
loss and suffering than falls to the
lot of most cities. Rheims has lain
across the path of many an' enemy's
march. It suffered Severely iu the
campaign of 1814. In 1870, the Qer-
ranus stonncd its defenses, nnd Ger
man shells tore their wny into its
quaint limestone homes. Todny,
Rheuns has been mentioned more
often in dispatches toncerning bom
bardments than any other part of
Europe. The brave old town has been
forced to break its rest again nnd
to suffer the petinlties of being n for
tress, the kev to the Champagne
plains which swell unobstructed to
"Rheims is the champagne center
of the world. The last thing of which
the physical center of Rheims would
make one think is that of the clink of
champagne glasses and the purl of
their sparkling, feathery liquid. Yet,
there nrc more than fifty famous
wine firms iu the place, and upon its
outskirts nrc tho wonderful maze of
underground ccllnrs, drilled through
chalk formation, where millions of
bottles arc ripened every year.
"Tho champagne cellars about
Rheims nrc second in the interest of
most travelers onlv to the city's beau
tiful cathedral. During tourist sen
son any number of btrangcrs wan
der through these underground ways,
with their miles of mellowing pleas
ure. In this nrticlc of her commerce,
Rheims hns done business with all the
word. Tho grapes from which the
most sparking of drinks is made nrc
grown around the city, on its sunny
fields and hills and about the Montn
gno do Rheims.
"Rheims is two hours by express
from Paris, 107 miles. It is built on
a plain, with hills to the south and
southwest. Strong, detuched forts
surround it. Its streets nnd boule
vards arc broad, and thoy nro border
ed by quaint stone nnd stucco homes
in pntterns of yesterday. In the cen
ter of the town, its chief glory nnd an
object of international pilgrimage,
stands the Notre Damo dc Rheims
cathedral. It is one of the world's
very finett specimens of Gothic.
Though n product of .tho thirteenth
nnd fourteenth centuries, it has never
been finished; it still lacks tho towers
of the original design."
