Senor Mariano Prigador, his secretary,
next Saturday. To a Timet reporter,
who taw hiui ve.'tTday at ttie Jio
tel Espanol, in West Fourteenth street,
Senor Sarnanes ixpinined the scheme.
"The Peruvian Government," be
laid, "flrit began work on this projee;
In 1871, whm Ilemy MeiRKS, the
American er.ainecr, took rha'gn of Iho
work The h!ea was to build a rail
read from Lima up to Cerro de Pjs:t.
adisume of about 1(0 miles riiiht
acrono the Audcs ranue tiom trier i
wagon rond alout ninety miles long
wa to bn built to l'orto miovo, wtncti
is on the Ucayali river, at a point a
litt'e above whore that river becomes
unnavivable. From this town boats
weie to run down the Ucayali liver to
where it eiupiioi iuto the Amazon,
and from there down the treat liver
to the Atlantic ocean. The total dig-
tanrs from Para, tho town situated
right it the mouth of tbe Amazon,
and from where vessels wire to d irt
and at which they were to arrive, to
Poito Nuevo, as the vcfssls would
make it, ia something over 4L'00 miles
Mr. Mentis, up to the time of bin
death, obstructed seventy miles of
the railroad, at a coat to the Peruvian
Uoverninem ol -lU,lXU,(HHi, and suc
ceeded in doirg rt.ally the heaviest
anilnvet d lHcnlt portion of the en
gineering work. The road that bo
built runs acrota the mountains at
one point the rails are laid 12.000 f jet
above the level of the sea; and all
that ban to be done row is to finish
the road 'over (ompaiatively good
trao a ..t, (iround, that is to say, all the
work necewary to tbe completion of
the railroad, and that is really the
entire work, for when that U drme and
the wsgnn road built to Porto N uevo,
there we are. The thing is hcom
llBhed. "Last February the Peruvlitn Griv
ernment awarded the contract to fin
ish the railroad to Mr. M. P. Grace, of
the tlrni ol W. R. Graca & Co., of New
York, and bo ia actively at woik now.
It will probably take from five to eii
years to complete the entire work
railroad and wavon road and will
probably tot fiom $15,0C0,O0O to '.0,.
000,000. Mr. Grace accepted the
contract nnder the conditions
that he would build the roads
himself, and then for nintty-tiiue
yea's from the time of the beginning
of tho work, or. until 1085, he and bis
heirs are to derive all tbe bene 11 ta and
emoluments accruing therefrom. At
the end of that t me the Peruvian
Government acqulreRlpoBnesflion of the
i ,.i i,i n'i. ,i ... i : .i.
will result from this groat work are
Immense. Aside) from the gieat sav
ing of time and money by avoiding
me long trip around tape Horn lu
sending freight or merchandise or pas
sengers, wiucn win 1)8 the direct re
sult, it will open up a hitherto un
known and almost unexplored coun
try, 'which fo- natural and productive
richnens will, I think, exceed any
other country in the world. The
scheme by the government ia m t s j
much meant as a money making ven
ture, but is (specially intended to de
velop and populate tnat pait of Pern.
"Now let me ts 1 jou of tho cxm!

will, if yon phase, s'art. (rem ti e At

trip. Wo keop on up nud up the
Auia ,u, following iU tlioufand and

There the river Ucayali empties its
waters into tho Amazon, and as the
Annum takes a rjlmrp northern bend
here, we have it ti it elf ami gs on
np thn Ucayali, l eading strati ht for
Porto Nut vo. Wken we g t to Provi
dencia, bav nit come soniething like
3iH)0 miles, we find that the river ia
getting pretty shallow, and that if we
go much lurlhur in our 600 t in steam
er we will run nground. So we got oil
that boat with our effects and transfer
omselves to a smaller steamer one
cf 350 tons and ro on down until we
get to Poiti Nuevo, 4'200 milej having
b en traversed in about twenty-five
days. Here the second change ocenrj,
and we get into our carriuges or
coaches or wagons or what ver kind
of vehicle we can get and drive over to
Cerro de Patco, where we meet the
railroad, and then by that means go
down to Lima. The liver trip bat
been made as I have described it up
