glncrr Does Nqt Vlnil the Proposed

of tho Different Itoutos Selected.
Washington, March 5. Tho river
and harbocact of 1894, directed tho sec
retary of war to have a survey made of
the canals in Ohio with a view to ascer
taining tlio feasibility and advis
ability of enlarging them into ship
canals to connect tlio waters of Lake
Erie with tho Ohio. A report was
made on the subject to tho houso Wed
nesday by tho chief of engineers.
Three routes were surveyed along tho
lines of existing canals or streams to
make a continuous waterway and the
report shows on either routo tho propo
sition is feasible, and that a suffi
cient amount of water can bo
secured. All things consider
ed, however, tho necessity for
transhipment at tho Ohio liver ex
isting, tho report does not find tho pro
posed improvement advisable. Tho cost
of converting tho canals into ship
canals 70 feet wido and seven feet deep,
with necessary locks,, etc., capable of
carrying vessels of 'JS0 tons burden, ia
estimated as follows:
Eastern route, Cleveland to Marietta,
S12,299,37:J; central routo, Sandusky
Hay to Portsmouth, 518,094,10; western
route, Toledo to Cincinnati, SJ5,011,474.

In tho abundant histoiical proof of

results of a search of tho Spanish

by tho clearest of documentary
evidence teat the first sottlc-.

West India is also a direct consequence

If the Dutch were not in possession,

The News intimates that tho negotia
tions of the limits upon which Venezuela
now bases her title was the outcome of
this intrigue. Tho paper also gives de
tails of subsequent matters which
prove, according to tho Ilritish conten

Upon this part of tho case the govern

A. Unmet, of the department of physics
of the Maryland state noimal school,
claims to hate secured peifect photo
