setting aside a moderate part of

THE EXAt7sl6F0F THE UNITED
Exit M. do Lesseps ; enter the
astute Americans ! Now that the
Panama Canal schema has failed,
apparentl' bcj'ond the hope of re
demption, tho coast is left clear for
the Nicaragua Canal scheme. AH
who are behind the scenes have long
known that the United States Gov
ernment was doing all it could to
prevent the completion of the Pa
nama works,and tho President of the
Great Republic has now signed the
bill authorizing the promoters of the
Nicaragua Canal to form a com
pany, with a capital of 100,000,000
dollars, which may bo doubled if
necessary. Years ago, Mr. Belt,
the mining engineer and famous
naturalist, observed that Nicaragua
was the place for a trans-oceanic
waterway. The route he proposed
started from near Greytown, just
south of the hilly and thickly-wooded
Mosquito Coast, passed along the
San Juan River, and finally crossed
the great Lake of Nicaragua. On
this line all possiblo water-tracks
can bo mado use of, and compara
tively littlo land need be cut
through. Perhaps before the new
century has emerged from ils teens
tho Nacaragua Canal may be a fait
accompli, and the two greatest
oceans of tho world may comminglo
their waters. Simultaneously with
this step southwards of the Grei t
Republic, the hardy inhabitants of
Texas may be expected to spread
downwards into ancient and nature
favored Mexico, and may look for
ward to nit occupation of Cuba by
the Anglo-Saxon stock. The de
scendants of the once noble Span
iards and Portuguese have too long
played havoc with tho destinies of
some or tho fairest countries of tho
globe. From the North-West comes
tho same talc, The American Union
will now comprise forty-four Slates,
the erstwhile "Territories" of Da
kota, Washington, and Montana re
ceiving the more lofty title. Tho
continents of Australia and of
Northern and Central America will
soon entirely belong to tho stock of
the "Mother of the Nations."
