SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 8.— Indicative of the great importance of the Panama canal as a commercial artery comes the statement that 400,000 tons of freight, destined for San Francisco and the Pacific Coast, are tied up in the Panama canal as the result of the worst slide in the history of the great ditch and it is expected that it will be later than November 1 before traffic will be resumed. The American-Hawaiian Steamship .Company of San. Francisco has *even ships tied up by the great slide, a large number of which carry holiday goods consigned to San Francisco. The local offices of the company are awaiting orders from New York as to the final disposition of the shipments. The Luckenbach Company, with local offices here, has three ships tied up. Orders were received here to the effect that the goods would be transshipped by railway from Colon to Balboa and thence by the Luckenbach .steamers to San Francisco. In all it is estimated that there ts in excess of 400,000 tons of freight tied up in SO ships, bound north and south, through the canal. Of this amount it is considered impossible to trans-ship more than a small portion. This will result in most of the ships being tied up until such a time as the slide of last Saturday night is removed. According to.the latest dispatches received in the local offices of steamship companies, more than 1,000,000 cubic yards of earth must be removed before the channel is again deep enough to permit, the passage of the ships'. This work has been started and according to government advices it is not expected that it can be completed before the middle of November. In most cases the loss, brought about by the slide will be borne by the operating companies, as in each charter there is a provision which covers the possibility of a slide in the canal.

Poison Vapors Cause Greatest Mortality NEW YORK, Oct. 8.—Wounds poisoned by the deadly gases used in the bombs of the belligerents in Europe have caused the greatest mortality in the present war, according to Dr. Merritt Foote, of Richmond, Hill, L. 1., who returned home today. Dr. Foote said: "The gas develops in the wound a bacillus which thrives and spreads rapidly. An hour or so after being wounded it may be necessary to amputate a wounded man's leg at the ankle to prevent the deadly bacillus from making headway. Death has frequently been due to the spread of the bacillus and not to the wound itself. "I saw one man who had been shot in the side. His liver showed the presence of gas bacillus. An incision was made in that organ and the liver washed with sodium hypochloride. The man recovered."

Griffith, the world's foremost motion piccture producer. It is an adaptation from Thos. Dixon, Jr's. popular novel of the same name, and is the costliest motion picture ever produced. "The Clansman" deals with the civil war period. It shows the causes that led up lo this conflict and carries the spectator through the war. In "The Clansman" are shown the most marvelous battle scenes that have ever been staged. The seige before Petersburg, with thousands of soldiers in action, is realistically shown in the picture. The battlefields were laid out and trenches dug under the direct supervision of seven G. A. R. army veterans who took part in the original conflict. These veterans, two of whom, were commissioned officers, remained with Mr. Griffith during the entire pe : Hod that the scenes were being staged, Artillery duels, in which explosive shells are hurled by both the Northern and Southern troops, from huge mo- tars, are shown in motion pictures for the first time in "The Clansman". The artillery used is the same that was used during the Civil War, and - was borrowed from the United States gov-, "eminent for the occasion. The explosive blank shells used in the motors were constructed especially for these big guns. by an expert fireworks manufacturer. More than 500 of these shells, are used in the battle scenes. They 'cost thousands of dollars. In directing the battle scenes, Mr. Griffith used field telephones, flag sig nals, field couriers and even a captive balloon. The methods were not used as part of the army equipment, but were merely used by Mr. Griffith in staging the production. He used the modern war methods to better execute the methods of,"186MS0G. The artillery duels present one of the most striking features of-the picture. "The Clansman" describes the organization andmotives of the famous Kit Klux Klani and shows more than two thousand of these white-hooded riders in their raids on the negroes. General Sherman's hlstorhil march to the sea, togteher'with the burning of tlie entire city* of Atlanta, is shown in the picture. The burning of Atlanta is shown at night. ' The entire city, with its countless number of buildings and dwelling is shown <n the destruction. A terrific battle between Ku Klux riders and negro troops provides another thrilling feature. The assassination of President Lincoln by Wilkes Booth, is shown for the first time in the history of motion pictures. Tne mini scenes of "The Clansman" provide the most powerful sermons that ' could possibly, be preached against the horrors ofc war. "The Clansman" is presented by an all-star cast, including Henry Walthall, Mae Marsh, Miriam Cooper, Josephine CTOWCII , Spottiswoode" 'Aitlcen, "Ralph Lewis, Lillian Gish, Elmer Clifton, Robert Harrpn, George Seigman, Walter Long, Mary Alden, Joseph Hennebery, Sam de Grasse, Howard Gaye, Donald Crisp, Win, DeVaull and Jennie Lee.
