Twt Hamdr4 mm Finy Million Dol
lars Dianajpcr In tn Puna
Two hundred and fifty million
dollars sunk in the Panama canal
scheme and work practically aoau
doned. That is the condition of affairs as
stated bv a railroad man who re
cently returned to New York after
a two years' residence down there.
He says there is no question about
the canal project's being a failure,
and that within a very short time
work will entirely cease, and every
body who can do so will abandon the
vne of ''Pe Lessen's folk." which
started with such a flourish of trum
pets. The informant tells a re
markable story of the recklessness
with which money was squandered
on the proposed canal, and says every
statement he makes will soon be
verified by official information.
The situation, as he pictures it, is
as follows: "When the last mail
left the Isthmus only a few small
angs of men were making any pre
tense of eontinuing work, and it was
coi.ceded that thty must stop in a
few weeks at furthest. The last
important desertion from the work
took place February 1, when the j in 1880, but that year will be me
contractor on the San Pueblo cut j moriaUe only as marking the aban
discharged his 2,000 men and an- J donment of the enterprise, probably
I nouueed that he would not nei'd
them ugain. At one time as many
as 50,000 negroes, mostly from Ja
maica, were emphyed ou the canal.
From time to time men were dis
charged. They became turbulent
as the unemployed increased in
numbers, and the Colombian C5ov
ernment found it necessary to place
ou duty a large guard of soldiers
and have a line of the Panama rail
road patrolled to prevent outbreaks.
The uegroe were paid small wages,
and being shiftless, saved nothing.
They drew their money in small
sums, and when they happened to
have more than was necessary to
buy rum, they rode out the surplus
on the railroad tr-Mns, aud conse
quently when discharged were pen
niless. American, French and En
glish men of war are at anchor in
the bay at Colon, ready to protect
the citizens of their respective coun
tries if necessary.
"Not only on the canal, but also
on the railroad a large number of
men have beeu throw u out of work.
When canal building was being
pushed there were four passeDger
trains run on the railroad, but now
two are more than sufficient and half
of the force has been discharged, and
those sti!l at work are threatened
with a reduction of wages. This is
the ury season, and there is conse
quently not so much sickness as
there will be when the wet season
sets in. Then, unless the idle men
are returned to their homes, it is
feared they will dia off like, sheep.
When the Compagnie Uuiverselle
Transatlantic began work in 1880 it
gave out no contracts, but prepared
to dig the canal itself, and, under
the liberal guidance of Count Pe
Lesseps, made ample provisions for
such comforts as were possible in
that section. Towus, hospitals and
other modern improvement were in
troduced. "At Colon the French quarter is
laid out like a park, aud improved
like a European ville. De Lesseps

I Before these improvements vere;
made the only wheeled vehicle in the
city was a carriage provided for the
hospital nnrses, but now cabs abound.
All along the proposed line of the
canal money has been lavishly ex
pended for the comfort and even
ltixnrj of the company's officers, all
of whom lived, while the bubble
floated, like princes. This extrava
gance had a counterpart in tho way
money was - thrown away on tho
work of canal digging, nntil three
or four years ago, when contracting
began, and altogether there is very
little to show for the vast outlay of
$250,000,000, which is said to have
been the amount sunk.
The only water conrse actnally
developed by the wreck is from
Kohio, a distance of thirteen miles.
This , work was chiefly through
marshes and was done by an Amer
ican dredging company. The only
hard work was at Mendea where,
for a distance of 300 or 400 yards
blasting was necessary owing to rock
obstructing the way. This eection
is a comparatively small fractiou of
the entire work projected, as the
other thirty or thirty-five miles of
the canal was surveyed over moun
tains, some of them bristlinz with
rock. Ou the Culeda considerable
work was done, but it was not any
where nearly finished. On the
basis of previous expenditures it is
estimated that a thousand million
dollars would be required to finish
As an evidence ot the manner in
which mmey was squandered, it is
utated that expensive and valuable
engines and other machinery taken
there from Belgium and France
were dumped npou the commons and
not even covered op or otherwise
protected from the elements. Much
of this machinery was never used,
but still lies where it was unloaded.
Some of the machiuery has been
overgrown with rank weeds, which
abound iu that section.
Pe Lesseps, when inaugurating
his work announced that the canal
would be thrown open to the public
never be resumed. Everybody down
there is intensely nervous, and all
who can do so are preparing to
leave. The merchants are closing
up their business as rapidly as pos
sible, and many of them are await
ing news from the United States
with a view of going to Nicaragua,
as they have faith in that canal
projects. Some of the con
tractors are said to have been badly
caught by the collapse of the scheme,
and some of them hjAve gone to
France, hoping to secure at least a
poition of the money due them.
The American Dredging Company
is among the concerns reported not
to have been paid iu full, aud its
representative has gone to Paris.
Americans have suffered to a con
siderable extent by the cessation of
work, as all of the railroad employes
and the dredging company's work
men are from this country. The
canal company's employes, except
the laborer, all of whom are ne
groes, are, as a rule, Frenchmen, and
theyare grumbling loudly about
unpaid salaries. As an evidence of
the complete collapse of Panama's
bright prospects, it is mentioned
that while the Government of Col
ombia, which is more thrifty iti such
mutters thau the United States, last
year sold the gambling privileges to
a mau named Garcia for $100,000
Colombian currency (about $70,
000 in gold), this year no bid was
made therefor, aud an effort is being
made to collect a revenue by arrest
ing individual gamblers. The rail
read men were fined $50 each for
gambling. All are agreed that the
gravest disorders will arise when
work is totally discontinued.
Ths Koekct Camera.
A curious photographic ap
paratus, in which a camera is
raised by a rocket and lowered
by a parachute, is being per
fected by a French inventor,
M., Ameedee Denisse- In its
experimental form, the cylin
drical camera has twelve len
ses found its circumference,
with a sensitive plate in its
centre, and is provided witli a;
shutter, which opens and in
stantly closes as the apparatus
begins to fall. The descent is
eased by the opening of the at
tached parachute, which is
drawn back to tho operator by
a cord attached befor the fir

A Brlsbt Bird.
He was an English starling, and
was owned by a barber. A starling
can betanght to speak, and to speak
very well, too. This one had been
taught to answer certain questions,
so that a dialogue like this could be
"Who are you ?"
"Where are yon from ?"
"Who is your master ?"
What brought yon here?"
Now it came to pass one day that
the Btarliug escaped from his cage
and flew away to enjoy his liberty.
The barber was in despair. Joe was
the life of the shop; many a customer
came attracted by the fame of the
bird, and the barber saw his receipts
falling off. Then, too he loved the
bird, which had proved so apt a
15ut all efforts to find the strav
bird were iu vain.
Meantime Joe had been enjoying
life on bis own account. A few days
passed very pleasantly, and then,
alas! he fell into the snare of the fow
A man lived a few miles from the
barber's home, who made the snaring
of birds his business. Som of the
birds he stuffed aud sold. Others
agaiu were sold to hotels near bv, to
be served up in delicate tid bits to
Mitch to surprise, Joe found him
self one day in the fowler's net, in
company with a large number of
birds as trightenedlas himself. The
fowler begau drawing out the birds,
one after another, aud wringing their
necks. Joe saw that his turn was
coming, and something must be done.
It was clear that the folcr would
not ask questions, so Joe piped out:
"Hev! what's that?" cried the fow
"I'm Joe," repeated the bird.
"Are vou?" said the astonished
fowler. "What brings yon here ?"
Bad company' said Joe promptly
It is needless to say Joe's neck was
not wrung, ami that he was soon re
stored to his rejoicing master, the
Uperallllona sf Xaffroe.
