WASHIHGTOH, Nov. gO.-The tlonal Board of Consulting who are acting in advisory capacity to the Panama Canal Commission voted last week on tbe subject of the type of canal to be adopted. Their decision to for a 'sea level canal. Up to date there has been a great deal done, haw much very few people in the United States seems to know or sare. There has been a great deal of criticism of the Canal Commto sion for not proceeding faster. But the fact to that the work has been pushed as rapidly as possible considering thenum ber of changes in the commission and engineers that have been necessary. The decision as to tbe type of canal marks an Important period in the work, and it to just as well to consider at this moment what has already been accom- plished, la the first place the Isthmus has been cleaned up It was never thought possible to do It. In fact the work of the sanitary corps under Col. Gorges has been as important as the dig- ging of the canal itself. For the sanita- tion of the Isthmus made it a habita- ble, strip The French tried to do the canal work without the preliminary sanitation and failed utterly. Of course partisan critics will profese themselves skeptical of the amount 6f work actually done. But the records of the War De. partment state tbe following as some of the things accomplished. A sewer sys tern has been advised for the town of Panama and to half completed. The town to being paved with brick for the easier cleaning and policing, and there has been installed a complete system of water works so that for the first time in three centuries the will have good drainage and a pure drinking sup- ply. There wfll be three other water systems necessary, one for the Cnlebra, one for Empire and a third for Cristobal and Colon, All these are under way. By cleaning the towns and killing the mos- quitoes, the yellow fevefcases have been reduced from 61 in June to 8 in October. There are now laborers on the ground and the rate of sickness to only 25 per which would be considered moderate in a northern climate. In the line of actual construction the United States inherited the unfinished French work which consisted of fifteen miles of sea level canal at the North end and five miles at tbe South. The work has eaten into the great Cnlebra Hill to a point 140 feet above leveL This hill is 840 feet higt and ten wide and has been the great bugbear of a can- al line at Panama. There are 20 steam shovels now on the ground and sixty more ordered or on their way to tbe scene of the work. The Panama railway feat teen double tracked with the excep- tion of nine which, will Tx> doubled also. This to not a bad showing for the work up to date. There has been a great deal of opposition to the canal from the railroad which will of course be be affected by it and there pro- bably will be a great many more calami ty howls to the effect that it to an en- gineering impossibility. Political interest in. the past few days has turned largely toward Uncle Joe Cannon, who, as the next Speaker of tbe House will have the making or blocking of a great deal of legislation. Mr. Can- non, after his first visit to the White House, admitted what he would not ad- mit the possibility of railway tate legislation at the coming session. But he has tome out in a flat footed statement against tariff legislation and there to going to be a hard fight over this. The President feels that he has the country behind him on the tariff re- vision plan as well as on rate fixing and the visit of the shoe men the other day, headed by ex.-governor of Massachusetts, indicates that he to going to have some warm and strong support. There are some more business dele- gations that are coming to Washington on the same errand, and Speaker Can non, astute politician as he to, will find he has all his work cut out if he intends to block consideration of the tariff, and as he contemptuously expressed it, pre- vent the country being held up by the tall this winter." It to not often that Secretary Hitch- cock lets himself go as he did the other day on the subject of the convictions in that Oklohoma land fraud case where two men Imprisoned six hours and fined fl.OOO for illegally fencing of government land. The Secretary declared that the conviction had cost the government thousands of dollars and four years hard work and he was dto- gnitod with the Inadequate pnntohment in the case. Ht said, however, that the Government propoeed to follow tbe caw np and if tbe were not torn down that other would follow and a fresh effort to put the guilty pur- where they belonged, that in the penitentiary for a term of years. 11 HEWS FROM STOHYFORK. frer otktr Tnm That Ylettlty.
