"Washington, D. 0., April 17.
Enginoor M. T. Endicott, who was
ono of tho board of enginoor
officers which investigated tho
Nicaragua canal route last sum
mer, appeared beforo tho Houso
Commorco Committee today aud
detailed the work performed at
Nicaragua. "While ho regarded
tho company's plans as impracti
cable, ho did not doubt that a
canal could bo built. Ho bolioved
a canal along tho lino of tho pro
posed route to bo practicable, and
thought that when completed it
would meet all expectations.
Speaking of tho canal from a
military rather than a commercial
standpoint, ho expressed tho be-
liof that in tho ovont of war with
England tho United States would
havo to abandon it, not boing
strong enough now to hold it. 'It
tho United States possessed tho
naval strength of Groat Britain 'it
could easily bo maintained. Tho
caual, ho thought, would cost
133,000,000, not counting intorost
on the money invested. With
that amount tho Government
could construct a canal with a
uuvigablo depth of tweuty-oight
Mr. Endicott was asked if tho
modifications suggested by tho
board were adopted ho would still
advise that the government should
construct tho canal. Ho replied
that ho would if tho government
proposed uunuing tno waterway.
Ho thoucht tho United States
ought to own a canal connecting
xno waters or tno Atlantic and the
Pacific. This was really a military
necessity. Ho did not know of
any route more favorablo than
the ono under consideration.

rnopl oniorSocmiil Lecture Given.
Dospito tho inclement weather
of last ovoning a largo number of
people assembled at tho Y. M. O.
A.hall to hear tho Countess Wacht
moistor's second lecture, entitled
"Man, the Master of his Dostiuy."
Tho Countess said she desired to
make a fow preliminary romarks
in correction of an erroneous idea
which many had respecting Thoo
sophy. Ono may belong to any
roligious sect and still bo a thoo
Bophist, with perfect consistonce.
Theosophy is not a religion at all,
but a vast philosophy, which is
constantly being studied by many
thousands of people involving tho
problem of liumau cxistouco and
destiny. Freemasonry is noarost
akin to it. Sectarianism is narrow
mindednoss. Witness the 200
sects of Protestantism. Christ
says "Love Ono Auothor." Theo
sophy toaohos a universal brother
hood. Tho Theosophical Society was
formed in 1875, in a Now York,
drawing room by Holcna Potrova
BlavatBlcy. Sho was a woman
who had developed abnormal
faculties oarly in life. Sho wont
to India and was oarnoBtly re
quested to proceed to Thibet to
roach tho fountain head of theoso
phical adoptism. As hundreds of
miles of nor journoy was mado
through a country never beforo
penetrated by a wluto person, sho
traveled over that portion of it
concealed under tho straw in a
hay cart. On her arrival sho im
mediately began a course of study
lasting threo years. Sho loarned
to manipulate certain laws un
known to scionco. From Thibet
Mmo. Blavatsky went to Egypt
where sho continued her studios.

accompanying hardships and an

then a patron of spiritualistic
mediums. "With his assistance
tho Booioty was formed.
" Tho stato of 'adeptship,' "said
the speaker, "consists of a far
greater development of the facul
ties than tho ordinary mortal
knows of. Certain senses are
latent in us but as wo do not try
thoy aro not developed and wo
havo, consequently, but a glimmor
of an idea of their preseuco." But
development goes on constantly
from nge to age in accordance
with tho laws of evolution- Theo
sophy teaches of a first cause from
which omanates all things. Im
agine those divine rays,, reaohing
to tho farthest confines of tho uni
verso, causing to ovolvo from pro
toplasm, through mineral, Tego
tablo, animal and human life, tho

control our thoughts; they form
our destiny. If this lifo i&
ono of covotousness, in tho next
reincarnation it will bo that
of a thief. Teach your child
ren to control their minds
and think no evil, and in time it
will beebmo a habit. Our hap
piness hero is largely dependent
upon tho thoughts of a previous
era. Tako, for example, a straight
lino and call it harmony. Any
doviation from that line is a
transgression and to get back into
tho true courso wo must suffer.
That is our punishment and the
experience is knowledge
gamed. Ono who trains tho mind
hero and keeps to the lino of puro
and higher thought becomes a
genius in the next life. But trans
gression will moot with punish
ment and this is the law of Karma
