It Is ex tremely Improbable, howover, that they lwll bo able to get a bill through cither houso of Congress before that report Is available. Tho Walker Commission will leave Now York on January 6th, going di rect to Greytown, Nicaragua, by the regular mall steamer. They will go over the routo of tho Nlcaraguan canal to the Pacific side and will then will go by steamer to tho Pacific end ot tho Panama route.
