Champlain canals. The-coming October
will mark the one hundredth anniver

down the canals to meet at Albany. It
was a gala day in the capital city a
century ago when the “meeting of the
waters" was celebrated.
When the Erie canal was begun in
1817 it was the most expensive public
work that bad been undertaken in the
United States. It cost more than $7.-
500,000, and was constructed through n
region which was then for the greater

was his policy for the construction of
canals from I atkes Erie and Champlain

to present to the Federal government. It
was not adopted at Washington as a
national measure, and just then the war
brushed the whole matter aside.
At the beginning of 1815 Clinton was

Advance in Germany’s
Reparations Proposals as
Given to Entente Powers.

suggestions contained in the recept mem
orandum drawn up by'the industrialists
federation. While the note does not spec
ifically state that the national system of
railways and all the physical property
connected with it are to be placed in
custody of trustees and conducted as pri
vate enterprises, the industrialists un
derstand that this will be the govern
ment’s prodeedure and that the lines
would be hypothecated for the capital
