THE ISTHMIAN CANAL PROJECT.
The building of the Isthmian canal is
milter of immense Importance to the
South, and Its commercial Interests in
the future, hence this project, which is
now before Congress, is of Intense in
terest snd is being closely watched by
The question to decide, as to the
available routes for this canal, seems to
lie between the NIcaraguan and the fan-
Briefly summarize!, the NIcaraguan
route Is some 180 miles in length, against
49 miles of the Panama route.
In distance from the United States,
the NIcaraguan has some 409 miles in
its favor, which Is apparently the chief
and only Important factor urged in its
favor, for in the cost of construction, its
greatly added length, other things Wng
equal, must far outweieh the distance
The fact that the government must
pay forty million dollars for the right to
the Panama route, gives with this pay
ment the effects and work costing four
or five times this forty millions.
But another phase of this canal quea
tion, and a most important one In all fu
ture time, is that of the healthfulness of
the two routes. '
Dr. George A. Soper, a sanitary spec
ialist, has written anjexhaustive article
on this question.
Dr. Soper's conclusions are that dur
Ing the period of construction both
routes passing through areas extremely
unfavorable to health and there being
practically no difference in the nature
of the diseases to be anticipated the
Panama route would be the more health
ful because of its lighter rainfalls; and
that all the considerations of soil, topog'
raphy and the nature of the engineering
work to be done are also in favor of the
Panama route. As to comparative
healthfulness after construction and un
der active operation of the canal this ex
pert's conclusions are:
"The difficulty of controling health
conditions along the line would be great
er on the JNIcarauean route.
The shorter Panama route would
cause passing vessels to be exposed to
the possibilities of infection . for a much
briefer interval. The danger of the
communicating diseases to and from
Isthmus is fairly represented by the dif
ferences in time which it would take
ships to pass from ocean to ocean by the
The likelihood of the canal becoming
a disease focus, thus interfering with
commerce, by requiring all healthy ports
to quarantine against ships passing the
Isthmus, is much greater in the case of
Nicarauga than Panama.
Although the Panama health records'
are much darkened by heavy losses of
life by disease, this is not to be construed
as evidence of the existence of condi
tions favorinsr a greater immunity from
sickness along the Nicarauga line, litre
lives have been lost at -Panama.because
most lives have been unnecessarily ex
posed. The experience of ranama is to
betaken, as a warning of conditions
which are liable to be repeated on either
really deferring, and a continued pro
tection for Industries which sell their
manufactures at 10 to 40 per cent less ia
foreign markets, than the American
buyer most pay for the same, is legisla
tion of two very different characters.
The political cry of "infant Industries
must be protected,1 ought not deceive
any one, and yet It will unless the peo
ple study the question of protection, not
for personal benefit, but for community
A study of the country, Its "appalling
prosperity'' of to dsy, b significant, and

the country unprovided foi years of

will come, through the extravagance of

drift of the times is too much for the

stead of protecting interests which vi

1 The fsct that the Commission appoint
ed to look at both routes, "which favors
the Nlcsrsgusn in its report, notes the
saving' in distance, for this country's
Atlantic and Pacific ports, as the- only
point in Its favor, is not an altogether
strong argument, when so many other
things ought to be considered. '

RESULTS FROM OYER PROTEC
TION. ' The stupendous gifts of American
millionaires, made millionaires most .of
them through the American system of
over protected Industries, their immense
money gifts to colleges and charities are
beyond the conception In their vastness,
of the ordinary citizen whose income
ranges along with his expense of living.
' It Is the system of protection which
has enabled Andrew Carnegie to pile up
several hundred million dollars, so much
money that he cannot spend It, or re

It is the symstematlc training of school

It Is the knowledge of self.that counts

Each new invention has been thought
out and worked out, and is not the crea
tion of an hour, but of the forced
thought and effort of days, weeks.
The present time demands of men and
women that they know something, to be
of worth to other people, and be of
money value, so far as their services are
Every line of business demands
thorough knowledge, if the man or wo
man employed is to be worth money to
the employer. And no line of business
is so well learned, that there remains
nothing further to learn.
When any business is known so well,
that nothing more remains to be learned,
it Is a good business to leave, for the
world Js progressive, and anything
which halts Is quickly left behind, in the
rush of progress.
It is this knowing and still learning,
that makes an employe worth money.
And It is the application of this know
ledge to advance the employer's Inter
ests, which means an added value to the
employe's services. .
. There Is no line of business in which
men and women may not ' add to their
Value as employes, if they seek to do so.
It is to know something, and putting
the knowledge Into effect, which means

Deafness Cannot lie Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
there is only one way to cure deafness,
and that Is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an Inflamed con
ditlon of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube gets in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or im
perfect bearing, and when it is entirely
closed deafness Is the result, and unless
the Inflammation can be taken put and
this tube restored to Its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by ca
tarrh, whicli Is nothing but an Inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces. :
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh

New York, Jan. 9. Under the direc

Hall, reinforced by his foes within the
orgsnizatlon, a campaign will soon be
begun, It Is said, for the purpose of driv
Ing Richard Croker from his scat of
power in the Democratic party.
Flans already laid bare are under con
sideration by a numerous body of Influen
tial Democrats who will hold a meeting
within a few days, at which it will be
determined whether the attack on Mr.
Croker shall be made within the organi
zation or from the outside. Not all the
leaders in Tammany Hall, despite their
silent acquiescence in the management
of its affairs, aro friendly to the chief
tain, and this spark of unfriendliness
needs only a faint breeze of encourage
ment to fan it into a flame of revolt.
Mr. Croker will leave for Europe
about the middle of February, according
to his present Intentions. Already he
has postponed his departure several
times on the advice of his friends who
aware that in his absence the storm may
break, want him to remain at home to
