Washington, Nov. 9. Washington
Is beginning to put on Its Congression
al appearance. Senators and Repre
sentatives are seen on tno streets in
Inert nalng numbers, and at the. White
House, anil In the departments they
pre more and more in evidence. These
peutlemen are the advance guard ot
iti legislators who, on December 2,
will be doing business again at the
old stand, and remain In session for
six or seven months.
Waslilngtonlans generally will wel
come the return ot Congress, tor It
brings business, vIsiiofb, and makes
many people prosperous. Tbe nine
months during which Congress Is ab
sent from Washington every other
year Is a period ot comparative dull
ness In Washington, not mat the four
hundred-odd "statesmen" bring so
much money to Washington, though
they expend soveral million dollars
here, hut they bring people to the city
to sco Congress In session, to appenr
befora the committees and urgo legis
lation. And the money thus expended
here is a mighty Important Item In
the prosperity nnd business activity
of tlilH old town.
While, the returns' of the late elec
tion really givo the Democrats no hope,
tor tho I u 111 re, tho Democratic party
has tho satisfaction of knowing that,
SB a result of tho elections, they will,
on March 4, 1902, gam two .Senators,
Maryland will send Arthur P. (lormau
here as the successor of thn despised
Wellington, and tho Democrats In tho
Senate will be given n much needed
leader. Then some sort of Democrat
1b certain to succeed Senator Doboo,
of Kentucky. The Republicans gener
ally will much prefer Senator Gorman
to tho Incumbent of that Senatorial
chair, and Senator Dcboe will not bo
very much missed from the Senatorial
counsels, and yet each one of these.
States will send a Senator whose title,
While undisputed, will not bo unblemished.
Kentucky Is In such a shameful po
litical condition that tho State has tost
prestige that It will bo difficult to
ovcicoine. And tho election methods
that made possible n Democratic Leg
islature aro not creditable to that
great State. In Maryland Gorman suc
ceeded In winning tho Legislature by
means of an election law that Is do
nounced by. Its authors who profited
by It. And there, are charges of fraud,
based on such evidence as tn bring
conviction of their truth, that do not
react to tho credit of the Democratic
party. And now that Mr. Gorman has
succeeded in assuring his own return
to the Senate, tb Democrats want to
repeal the law that caused his election,
However, much 'as tho return of Oor
man to the Senate may be objected
to by Republicans generally, and much
aa they may condemn tbe methods
employed to defoat tho Republicans In
Maryland, the fact remains that the
Republican party In Maryland has not
really deserved success In that It has
sent to Washington to represent It men
who are altogether creditable to the
State. Senator McComas, a gentlo
man every Inch, Is the best of the lot,
and yet he Is not a strong quantity In
the Senate. As for tho other Republi
cans, tho Representatives In Congress,
they aro absolute.y unimportant, and
In one or two cases tbey aro not cred
itable. Perhaps as a result of their
recent defeat, tho Maryland Republi
cans may pick up men of greater
strength of character and avoid tho
disgrace of th'o responsibility for the
election of this man Wellington, who
is to be succeeded uy Uorman, and
who was elected as a Republican.
I'oiiticians aro gossiping now as to
tbe Influence Hill on tho ono nand and
Gorman, on the other, will have In re
organizing Iirynnlsm out of tho Demo
cratic party. Somo people, and they
aro In tho majority, regard ex Senator
inn, 01 mow York, as tno coming great
Democratic leader, while others think
that Gorman, by reason of tho prestige
gained by his re election and his lead
ership of tho Senato Democrats, will
cut tho greater figure. It Is certain
that Gorman will cut no small figure.
He Is a splendid organizer, and as thn
leader of a minority that needs vltall
ration ho can mako a great deal ol
capital for himself and do much to do
st roy the still living roots of nryan
Ism. Yet bo won by a very narrow
margin and In a manner that Is cer
tainly open to criticism. He must con
tlnue to hold Maryland and gain
strength there. A Governor and a
Lcglslalunro are still to be elected
before tho next National Democratic
Hill. 011 tho other hand, has to re
organize his party and strengthen It
110 must, to bo euro, light a auburna
tcrlal campaign next autumn, but he
will gain prcstlgo If be succeeds In
cutting down tho Republican majority
in ino empire btatc. mil la mora
popular with his party generally than
is uorman. And then, Gorman has a
reputation for wca..ncsB in great emer
gencles, as was evidenced twlco In
Democratic National Convention,
when, bad ho been urm and aggress
ho, ho might havo won a victory, If
not for himself, for tuo clement of his
rarty which he represented. Howov

children to whom It was recently ad
ministered for diphtheria,
'lhc crdlct In part Is as follows:
"We find that the deceased came to

administration ot diphtheria antitox
in containing tetanus toxin, said diph
theria antl toxin having been prepared
and Issued by tho Health Department
of tho city of St. Louis, and bearing

"Tho mcBt Important result wo have

Now vYork, Nov. 21. Tho Journal
this morning prints what purports to
be a verbatim copy of tho report of tho
Nicaragua Canal Commission. It Is
emphatically In favor of tho Nicaragua
route. Tbe total cost Is fixed at $189,-
KG 1,002. The Panama ditch would cost
It says, with tho purchase price 2S3,-
371,858. Tho Commission decides In
favor of a canal with locks. The Com
mission reviews at length the water
features ot both routes, and concluded
that both are satisfactory for tho oper
ations of a ship canal.
The difficulties disclosed nnd likely
to bo encountered In the construction
of dams aro less at Conchud.i, on the
Nicaragua line, than on tho Panama
route. Both dams, however, am prac'
tlcablc, but the v cost of the Panama
dam Is one-halt more than that at Con-
chuda. The advantages In design and
construction of dams aro In ttvor ot
the Nicaragua routs.
It Is estimated that two years of pre
I oratory work aro necessary before
tne real excavation of tho canal begins.
The total length of Ibo Nicaragua
mule from sea, to sea Is 183 C6 miles,
whllo the total length ot tho I'anami
route Is 49,09 miles, rhc estimated
cost of the construction of tho canal
on tho Nicaragua route Is $13.(30,701
more than that of completing the Pa
Lama (anal, o.vilttlng tho cost of ac
quiring tho latter prnporly. This sum
measures tho jlffercnca In magnituJe
of the oUtailcii to be ovcrcomu In the
actual construction ot thn two canals.
j:iJ covers all physical rimxltWatioii,!,
such as greater or less height ot (Jams,
greater or less depth of cuti, presence
or rrbsenco of natural harbors, presence
or nhsence ot railroads and tho amount
of work remaining to be dono.
Tho estimated annual cost of main
taining and operating thn Nicaragua
canal Is $1,350,000 greater than for the
Panama, Tho latter would have less
summit elevation and fewer locks. Ths
estimated time for a deep-draft vessel
to pass through Is about twelvo hours
for the Panama and thirty-three hours
fur the Nicaragua.
