According to the New York Herald a
serious blow has been dealt the Nioa
raguan Canai Company's project for the
construction of a waterway cross the
Isthmus by the report of the Nicaraguan
Canal commission. Inevitable delay and
a further and more thorough investiga
tion of the entire subject are declared to
he necessary before even the engineering
feasibility of any canal across Nicaragua
can be decided upon. The report is at
such variance with the numerous rumors
and predictions which have from time to
time been published concerning it that it
will cause great surprise and disappoint
ment among those win have hoped for a
generally favorable rejMirt, and who have,
therefore, placed credence iu these ru
mors, which usually stated "on the high
est authority" that the commission fa
vored the route proposed by the com
pany and placed the cost of the canal at
The report points out that it is neither
practicable mr advisable to attempt tho
construction of the Nicaragua Canal up
on the data at present available, and that
quantity of the former, injected into a
vein, will paralyze the heart and de
stroy life, while the latter may be turn
ed into the circulation wholesalo with
no bad result Why Is it? Why U so
simple a substance as pnissic acid so
deadly a poison? A thousand of such
questions may be asked. None of them
can yet be answered. We know that
these things do thus and -so. How they
do it we do not know; but until we do
medicine will scarcely become an ex
act science. That we shall one day at
tain such knowledge Ls confidently to
be expected. That must be the work
of chemistry; and when we remember
that science of chemistry Is scarcely
more than a century old, and when we
consider the bewildering scope and im
portance of its achievements in that
century, it is surely not too much to
hope great things from its future labors.

true of every other citizen who had the
temerity to protest against corporation

and despotic power by virtue of which

MONEY SYSTEM IS BAD.
"Director of the Mint Sayn SensiJilc
Currency Legislation In Needed.
The director of the mint has submitted
his report to the Secretary of the Treas
ury. Mr. I'reston, in a review of the
monetary legislation of the count ry. states
that the real demonetization of silver
fotk place in 1."3. when the weight cf
'he divisional coins was reduced about 7
-i. r en. This, he says, was not an :nri-
leu ..r si si oversight: it was expressly de
clared in the House of Kepreseutativt s
that the intention was to make gold the
s 'e standard of value i:i birg- tr;i:c :. -1
i;ns. and silver, subservient to it. for
unall ones. The act of 1S73, lie says.
.v;is only nominal.
In his report tic director of the mint
says that the result of the currency legis
lation of the Ciiitcd States for over a
hundred years lias been such as to leave
an incoherent monetary system, as in
consistent, illogical and expensive as can
will be imagined, that inspires little con
hdenec at home and is not conducive to
our credit abroad, and its reform is one
of the most important and urgent political
and tinancin! questions of the hour.
He says that on the date of .Inly 1,
1S7'.. the date of the resumption of specie
payments, the only currency, except coin
certificates, required to be redeemed in
g !d coin was the S3 M.tJXl.OlC, legal ten
ter notes then outstanding, which the
then Secreiary of the Treasury was of
the opinion that ai gold reserve of JjUOo,
04Mj,tlWj would bo sufficient to maintain,
but the paper currency redeemable on
presentation has been increased to the
extent of $b "t,'X '.O.tKK issued in payment
of the silver bullion purchased under net
of July 14, lS'.M). Hesides these, there
wen- outstanding Nov. 1, is;.', $.T53,4rC,
U3 in silver certificates, and as the act of
July 11, 1S!0, declared it "to bo the es
tablished policy of the Knifed States to
maintain the two metals at parity with
each other," there was now a total of
$S'Jl,2-M..r:;2 resting on the basis of the
gold reserve of m,m,m.
The value of the gold deposited at tho
mints and assay otlices during the fiscal
j the undertaking would be fraught with
hazards too obvious to disregard. That
the necessary knowledge may be had of
the physical and topographical conditions
affecting the construction and mainten
ance of a canal across Nicaragua, upon
which to form a final judgment as to
the feasibility, permanence and cost, the
commission recommends an appropria
tion by Congress of $3Ti0 N.M) for extensive
additional surveys and examinations, cov
ering a period of eighteen months.
With the data at hand, however, the
commission makes a provisional estimate
of the cost of $133,472.S03, or nearly
double that of the Maritime Canal Com
pany unconditional estimate of $00,
StM.fM). The commission makes its es
timate "provisional,' for the commission
ers say the existing data are inadequate
as a basis for estimating the cost of many
structures. Some portions of the work
may cost more, others less. The report
says the official estimate by the company
of $t'',S'3,t;t',0 is insufficient for the work;
that "in several important cases the
quantities must be greatly increased, and
in numerous cases the unit prices do not
make proper allowance for the difference
in cost of work between the United
States and Nicaragua."
The general trend of the entire report is
certainly very unfavorable to the canal
ci utpnny. The commission lefrnm from
j any direct criticism of the company's
. 11 "!' i. niinn.i uiui cer-
ta;n features, which the company has
persisted in assuring the public through
'onvress w ere kn .wii to be absolutely
safe and feasible, if put in execution
might jeopardize the practicability of the
whole system, e.nd possibly destroy for
ever the hope of a canal by means ot the
San Juan Kiver and Lake Nicaragua.

Postmaster ('enerul Wilson has made
his first annual report to the President.
The receipts of the postolfice department
for the year ending June 3, lSfK, were
.$7.17L'I'.H, and the expenditures !?S(,
7m ,172. It is gratifying, says the report,
that a large portion of the deficiency oc
curred in the first quarter of the year and
that revenues are increasing with return
ing prosperity. Mr. Wilson estimates the
revenue for the year ending June 30,
181)7. at $s;.7.3.120, and the expenditures
at J?;t.Sl7,!MMi. the difference to be made
up by Congressional appropriation.
The postmaster general refers to the
growth of the free delivery service and
says he believes it is good policy for Con
gress nnd for this department to foster
the extension of this service by judicious
administration. Mr. Wilson reiterates the
necessity for legislation to punish train
wrecking and obstruction to mails urged
by his predecessor, recommends legisla
tion authorizing the use of private postal
cards, and says that the civil service rules
should be extended wherever practicable.
