SUMMARY
Excerpt from Measurement of Vessels for the Panama Canal The question is often asked why charges for the use of ocean - ship canals, such as the Suez, Kiel, and Panama Canals,' are imposed upon the tonnage of vessels instead of upon the tonnage of the cargo carried by the vessels. The report seeks to explain why the capacity of merchant vessels for the accommodation of passengers and the stowage of cargo, rather than the cargo and passengers carried, is the more equitable and more practicable basis of canal charges; and the report also states the reasons why warships should pay tolls upon their weight or displacement tonnage, and not upon the kind of tonnage that is made the basis of charges upon vessels of commerce.
