PORTUGUESE LAD SHOT.
New Yory, Dec. 21. A special to tho
Herald from Washington, says:
Legislation providing for tho con
struction ot a trans-Isthmian canal is
not probablo during the present ses
sion ot Congress.
Both the Nlcaraguan Canal Commis
sion In tho Senate, presided over by
Senator Morgnn and tho House Com
mittee on Inter-State and Foreign
Commerce, presided over by Mr. Hep
burn of Iown, propose to take tho mat
ter up wlthbut waiting for tho report
ot tho Walker Commission. 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. The commis
sion has now In tho field ten surveying
parties. Tho commissioners estimate
that it will take about a year for them
to complete all their work and mako
their report.
Senator Morgan has novcr given his
approval to tho sending of additional
commissions to the Isthmus, being
satisfied with the Information al
ready avallablo as to tho practicabili

The Oceanic Athletic Club.
Since Martin Denny's rather "touch

Athletic Club has not proven a bod ot
roses for its energetic directors. At
a meeting held In tho club's rooms last
night tho entire board tendered its
malt-notion nnii formally handed over
tho club's outfit and belongings to its
members. It is a matter ot regret that
the actions of one man should have bo
demoralised, for the time at least, on
noonipinn havlne uuch favorable
prospects. What action tho members
will take remains to be seen. Mean
time the sympathy of a large section
of the public is with tho boys In their
