THE REASON WHY.
Several correspondents are hereby
informed that their correspondence,
relative to the last conspiracy trial,
i3 withheld from publication because
the case is not yet settled. The de
fendant has applied for a new trial,
and considering the inconsistency of
the verdict with the evidence ad
duced, and several other important
points in connection with the form
ation of the jury, it is confidently ex
pected that tho request of the de
fendant will be granted, and the
whole matter be opened afresh. In
the meantime, comments which may
have a tendency to prejudice the case
one way or the other, are required
to be withheld from publication. We
have not, as intimated by one cor
respondent, kept silent because we
have no opinion, nor from motives
of fear; but for the reason above
stated. We have a very decided
opinion, and shall not hesitate to ex
press it when the impediment refer
red to is removed, nor decline the
communications which are at pres
ent held back.

New York, April 23. It appeals

First That by the treaty between
Spain and England, signed in Lon

settlement of Port Egmont to its orig

THE PAN; MA CANAL.
COMI'LETION IN TWO YEARS ASSURED.
Jcnn Vignic has been n resident
of Panama for sixteen years, and
ever since the first surveying work
was done for the canal has been an
interested and active participant in
the w oik. For the past four years
ho has been the principal contractor
of tho canal, and having but re
cently arrived from Panama is
thoroughly posted on the operations
going on at the isthmus. The ques
tion which interests people most is
when the canal will be finished, and
to this question Mr. Vignic gave to
the Chronicle leportcr yeslctday the
following positive answer:
"In two years, just as Ferdinand
do Lesseps says."
There are ' between 12,000 and
1-1,000 men constantly at work on
the c.mal, and the diliicult cutting
has nil been done. The earth now
being removed is almost entirely of
a clayey nature. All the heaviest
rocks have been removed, and the
most extensive works arc going on
night and day by elcctiic light at
Culcbra. There are to be ten gates,
distributed as follows across the
canal at various points in the length
from Colon on the Atlantic side to
Panama on the Pacific side. Two
gates at Uohio Holdado, one at San
Pablo, ono at Malnchiu, two at Cu
lebra, two at Paraiso, one at Pedio
Miguel and one at Miianorcs. At
the last place the bottom of the
canal is now eleven meters below
the h-.vcl of the mean height of the
water at Colon and Panama; the
level of the water at the Pacilic
shore is seven meters higher than
at the Atlantic shore. Fiom Colon
twenty-four kilometers toward the
Pacific have now been completed,
and from Panama ten kilometers
east have been finished. The ori
ginal gales for the canal, which
were intended to be in the usual
form that is to say, meeting in V
form at the center and opening to
ward the sides of the canal, will not
be used ; but instead an iion slid-ing-gate
moving in a direction nt
right angles to the length of the
canal into recesses cut in the banks
are to bo used. These gales are to
be of wrought and cast iion, and
will be moved by hydraulic machin
ery. Eifel, the projector of the
great tower in Paris, is tho builder
and designer of the gates, and the
lirst one is now on its way to
Panama. The use of ten gates is
intended to be only temporary, as
in years to come, when the canal
has been in i mining order for sonic
time, only two gates will be in regu
lar use for the entire canal. At pre
sent the number of gates gieatly
facilitates work. Dredging will al
ways be necessary in the canal, as
as it is at Suez. S. !'" Chronicle.

shares went ballooning to-day and
De Lesseps' friends aro jubilant.
Spectators bought freely on the
Bourse, driving the shares up 01
francs. Eerylody has agreed that
the Chamber of Deputies will have
to sanction the issue of the lottery
loan to complete the work. Yester
day the Committee of Initiative to
which the proposal was referred,
dismissed its reporter, hhed a new
one, and ordereel him to make a ie
port in favor of the De Lesseps bill.

The Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott,
Editor of the "New York Christian
Union," is presenting a view of tho
prohibition question which is attrac
ting consideiablc attention in church
circles in the East. Dr. Abbott
gives expression to his views in con
nection with the International Sunday-school
lesson for April 18th,
which concerns the miracle at the
Canu marringo feast. In tho course
of his discussion the doctor not 011)3'
biings out what every Sunday
school toucher knows that Christ
indulged in the use of wine as a
beverage, but also tho information
that there weiein His day teetotalers,
like tho Esscncs, a Fuiitan sect,
which some biblical writers claim
Christ belonged to, and the Nnza
rites, among whom was John the
Baptist, who were under a vow to
abstain from all kinds of wines, and
that there were those who favored
piohibition by law. In Rome the
teetotalers wore partially successful,
as they secured the passage of a
law forbidding women to drink,
which was as far as the bibulous
Romans would go, They were evi
dently in faor of tho wido-open-ull-thc-tinio
policy so far as men were
concerned, but were averse to allow
ing women even the benefits of "high
license" or thin wine.
Tho special point which Dr. Ab
bott makes is that Christ did not
indorse any of these movements. On
the other hand, ho says:
'This was not the method of
Jesus, lie lived in an ago of totol
abstinence societies and did not join
them. Ho emphasized the distinc
tion between his method and that of
John tho Bnplist by saying that John
came neither eating nor drinking ;
tho Son of Man came catmt and
drinking. Ho condemned drunken
ness, but never in a single instance
lifted up his voice in condemnation
of drinking. On tho contraiy, ho
commenced his public ministry by
making, as a miracle, wine in con
siderable quantity, and of line
quality, and this apparently only to
add to the joyous festivities of a
wedding. He apparently used ine
eustomnrilj',if not habitually, and
before all the world ; and lie left as
a legacy and example for His fol
lowers a sacred use of wine in the
most solemn service of His church."
In discussing the question fiom
this standpoint, Dr. Abbott docs not
advocate universal drinking or deny
that it would be wise, especially for
Cristiniis, to abstain from it; but the
point which ho emphasizes is that
each must judge for himself as to
his responsibility, and that no one
else has the right to judge for him
or condemn his decision. Ho even
goes so far as to anticipate that there
will bo a time when a pure wine can
be generally used without even a
physical harm. The fanatics of
course will condemn the reverend
doctor's temperance position, though
he contends that it is based upon
the position taken by Clnist, and
will continue to demand that wine
drinking shall be stopped by legal
compulsion, and that rather than
a measure which will regulate and
diminish tho evils of excessive in
duliience in alcohol, the saloon
keepers of the anti-prohibition cities
shall have in practico unlicensed op
portunity to sell not merely wine but
ardent liquors as freely as water.
They not only, Dr. Abbott contends,
"assume to differ with Christ as to
the meaning ol sin itself, to throw
His example one side as worthless,
but to rise superior to the attribute
of divinity and do what God Him
self has not done namely: to
ignore free will and make a man
good by compulsion." If the Es
scnes of Christ's day, says Dr.
Abbott, could have made others
total abstainers by the force of their
example, or the Nazarites or Ro
mans could have stopped men from
drinking by tho enactment of law,
Christ would have encouraged them,
and among His messages to human
ity would have been one to this
elfect: "Thou shalt not drink
Leaving out of view the purely
human considerations bearing upon
this question, which arc in them
selves simply unanswerable, Dr.
Abbott has approached its discus
sion from the lehgious and Chiistian
side in a calm and temperate but
not the less forcible manner. It is
not likely that all his brethren in
the pulpit will agree with him, but
he has opened up the whole subject
for dicussiou in a manner which will
be likely to invite attention to it
inside the church. Ho has given
his brethren some very hard nuts to
