Eight government engineers "who have been engaged .on the prelmlnnry survey of the Nicaragua canal have arrived in N'ew York on the steamer Altai of the Atlas line. The prelimi nary work was finished before tlnj party left the field and a vast amount of data, the results of surveyings, bor ings and surroundings, hns been now brought back and will bo included in the official reports, which will bo placed before Congress at its coming session. The surveys show that the proposed canal Is entirely feasible and that the cost will be considerably less than the estimates made by the Ludlow commission or the sum nam ed by Admiral Walker a year ago as likely to be needed. The reduction In cost is due to a change in the loca tion of the Ochoa dam and to other modifications of the old route. The Ludlow commission estimated the cost of the cannl at SKin.OOO.o'no. Admiral Walker named $12.",()00,000 as the aggregate cost. The veport of the engineers will plan- the estlmntc at less than $100.0(10.000. By changing the location of the dam from Ochoa to a point fourteen miles lower down the building of the San Junn basin and Its costly embank ment can be avoided and a snving of $10,000,000 made. Chief Engineer Eben Wheeler and other members of the returning par ty say their reports will show that the canal is a project containing no serious diflleulty and that it can be iiiekly nnd cheaply built. It Is two years now since any nctual work has been done on the cannl by the eompa nv of which Warner Miller is the head. The concession obtained by the com pany from the N'icaragunn govern ment is snid to still hold good. The attempt to build the canal by private means has been abandoned by Mr. Miller and his associates and all the rights in the premises have been of fered to the government. A syndicate of Chicago capitalists, headed by E. F. Cragin, has looked ov er the ground and it is now said to be endeavoring to obtain a concession from Nicaragua. Mr. Cragin and a narty of civil engineers and contrac-. tors from Chicago have returned re cently from the isthmus and arc said Jo be interesting members of Congress in their plans. The statisticians have "laced the volume of the commerce that is likely to uass through the ca nal much higher than tho estimates of the government, and their opinion is that the revenue to be derived will warrant them in spending considovab 1v more than $100,000,000 in building the cnnnl.
