GANS & KLEIN THE NICARAGUA CANAL, Figures That Demonstrate the Ad vantages It Would Bring to the United States. Coast Freight for New York Would Have 10,000 Less Miles to Go. naying of Immense Sums on all Western Products Consigned to Eastern Markets-The Cost. BT. LorIs, Oct. 8.-The committee a pointed by the national Nicaragua canal convention at its meeting in St. Louis, June 2 and 8. to prepare an address to the American neople giving information as to the feasibility of the Nicaragua canal and its commereial and other advantages to the United States. has just finished the prepar ation of such address. The address is sup. plementary to the resolutions adopted by the St. Louis convention, which pointed out the advantages of the canal and urged its construction, ownership and control by the American people rather than the Engi lish, French or any other nation. It takes the position that a canal joining the At lantic and Pacific oceans should be con structed for the most important commer ciHl. strategic and patriotic reasons, and says that the subject of such a canal is the most vital connected' with the welfare, growth and prosperity of the United States. It declares that the only feasible route for such a canal is by way of Nicaragua, and points out that the conventions of the two great political parties have endorsed the project. It appears that all the engineers have agreed in expressing a decided preference for the Nicaragua route, because, among other reasons,. only 26% miles of the entire distance of 169% miles from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean through Nicaragua will have to be excavated. The other 142% miles consist of Lake Nicaragua, the San Juan river and repressions in the surface of the earth. Lake Nicaragua will con stitute a halbor sufficient to accommodate the navies and commerce of the world. It is 110 miles long, sixty miles wide and is 250 feet at its deepest points. Vessels en tering the canal from the Atlantic ocean will sail on a level with the ocean for twelve and three-quarter miles, at the end of which they will be raised by three looks to the level of the lake. They will sail along the Han Juan river and the lake on the lake level to a point within three and one-half miles of the Pacific ocean. Here they will be lowered by the looks to the level of the Pacific ocean. The committee says the cost, including the payment of interest during the progress of the work, will be less than $100,000,000, SEAN ROUTE £~~~: N~~CARAGAJION -j y.ý 1'A 1 LS C" ·* 1(' Jtýý .ý LC . is ' , ` KK if Ri.

OfI 2100 northern engiineere and sakilld meehan ice who have worked for the canal company for three years not one has died from a dis eace incident to the country. The whent crop of the Pacifio coast in 1811 was over 1,81).0,(0 tons and 80 per cent of the whent wea exported by sailing ves sale and a large Iproportion of it passed around the Horn.

Japan imported over 7,001), M) pomadea of American cotton It 11, most of which was shipped from New Orleans to New Yoe k and then by rail to Vancouver and steamship to Japan. At present the coal trade of South Amer lea and the Pacific coast is monopolized by the English. 'The ommnittes thinks that if the Nicaragua canal wele opened the Ala hama and West Virginia coal would have a decilded advantage over English competi tors, not to mention the enormous amounts of coal the canal company itself would use. At the entrance of the Buez canal last year 1,600,000 tons of coal were sold. In compe tilion with England for Pacific ocean trade the Nicaragua canal would give Amerlcan commerce an advantage of 2,700 miles, while besides the speoitio benefits, the com mittee thinks great general 'benefits will acorne to the entire Misslssippi valley, the lake ports, and the Atlantio coast. ethip building and the shipping interests in New England will receive a new impetus. A new coasting trade will spring up. and American tonnage on the high seas will largely nocrease. The Suez canal, it is shown, saves only 8,600 miles around the Cape of Good Hope, as against over 10,000 miles saved by the Nicaragua canal. The tonnage tributary now to the Nicaragua canal, and which would pass through after its opening. is over (i,()00,000 tons a year. At $2 per ton, the charge undo by the ·i7ez canal, this would be $12,000,000 in tolla. The cost of ope: alion and maintenance is pla~sd at less than $1,000,000, and 6,000,000 tons would show a net income of $11,000,000 per an num. The company is confident that within five years the income will be over $20,000,000. The committee says it is no longer a question whether the canal will be built or not. 1 he only question is as to who shall build it, and who silall onutrol it when built? It says it has been informed that European syndicates have already made overtures to the canal company, but the committee believes the United States can not afford by carelessness, hesitation or neglect to permit an enterprise of such magnitude and of such far reaching ad vantage to pass under the control of any foreign company. "it therefore behooves us." the address concludes, "as a nation conscious of the power we wield and of the greater influence we may exert upon the destinies of this continent, to perform the duties without delay which we deny other nations the privilege of assuming, and to adopt now the best means of se curing the early completion of this work, whose advantages we are wililng to share with the world but whose control should never he allowed to pass out of our hands." BANK ROBBERS FOILED. The Nerve of the Assistant Cashier Kept Them From Their Plunder. E.nR, Pa., Oct. 3.-Tremendous excite ment was caused in Erie to-day by a daring attempt to rob the Keystone National bank. About 12:30 o'clock there were no customers in the bank. Assistant Cashier Frank Kep ler and Clerk Charles Liebel were busy on the books, when suddenly a quartette of tough looking strangers came in, revolvers in hand. The strangers took positions at each window around the desks within and pointing their revolvers at the heads of the two clerks, told them to throw up their hands. Instead, Kepler snatched a paper weight and was about to deal the fellow nearest him a blow on the head when two shots were fired by the intruders. One bullot shtuck Kepler in the left cheek, in flictina a serious hut not danueroas wound. The young man fell fainting to the flooe and the robbers, becoming frightened, raie f om the bank anld fled up Eighth street. The shooting attracted a crowd and a naunl bar of cttizoa gavre chase. The robbers find ink pursuit too hot turned on their puasuers and opened fire, but fortunately no one was injured. ]'Fially a special officer frotl L)oeherl overtook the dese.radlucl and after tiring one shot at him they concluded to earrender. ()n being searched nine revolvers and a collection of knlves and brass knuckles wa. fouud on them. The prisoners gave their names as John Courtenay and C, I. Iltaw ley, of New York city, Dan H.

Deolared to Be a Foreign Ohuroh Ruled By a Foreign Autocrat. Jesultlsm, He says, Always Meddles In Politles When It Is Allowed to Get a Followlag. NEW YOBax, Oct. 3.-Bishop Johnston, of Texas, (Episoopalean) raised a cry of warn ing against Cahenslyism to-day, on the occasion of the laying of the corner stone for the new Episcopalean mission. His re marks were listened to by more than a dozen Esiscovalean bishops from various sections of the country, over 100 Epieco palean clergymen and over 1,000 of thelaity. He spoke of the convention of German Catholics in Newark last week and said he denied that the church of Rome is in any sense either an American church or a church for Americans. "It is distinetively a foreign church, ruled by a foreign autocrat believed to be infallible by his followers, who dictates the policy of the church to his partisans. He pulls the strings in Rome and his vuppets jump in America. This great convention in Newark assembled for what? To carry out the beliefs of a society of St. Raphael which recently held a con vention in Germany. Its purposes are, first, to keep emigrants true to old world conditions and warn them against Amer loan traditions; second, to central ize, solidify and isolate foreign Roman Catholics coming here, and so secure them against American ideas. Was this convention in Newark called for the purpose of free men? By no means. We are told that the subjects discussed were carefully selected beforehand, while the sentiment received the sanction of promi nent ecclesiastical authorities before they were expressed. In other words, the teach ers prepared speeches and good little boys got up and delivered them. "If conventions of this character are to continue I hope some day some bad boy like Luther with American ideas of free speech, will get up and say something that will produce consternation among the peda gogues. At the meeting of this St. Ra phael's society in Germany the chancellor of the university at Washington vehe mently denounced Cardinal Gibbons and Archbishop Ireland, two patriotic Ameri cans, for being loyal to their country and its institutions. This chancellor taunts Cardinal Gibbons and Archbishop Ireland as being liberal Cathalics who have forgotten that the pope is the pope in America as well as in Rome. His final taunt is that proba bly these American bishops intend apply ing the Monroe doctrine to religion as well. We are free to say that if things go on much further as they have been going that is just what will be done. Jesuitism has never failed to meddle in politics when it has been allowed to get i foliowfig. it has been exselled again and again, for what else can a self-respecting nation do with a set of officious foreign ecclesiastics who undertake to dictate not only what their own dupes mnst do, but also how the affairs of the government must be run." In conclusion Bishop Jrbnston hoped Americans might throw off the galling yoke of the foreign meddling bishop, bidding him mind his own business on the Tiber and first learn how to make Italy, Spain and South America respectable and re spected among nations, then he might, with some gr ace, come over here and tell us how to attend to our own affairs. THE HERETIC HUNT. Opened Before the New York Presbytery Yesterday-Public Admitted. NEW YORK, Oct. 8.-The famous case of Prof. Charles A. Briggs, of the Union Theo logical seminary, charges of heresy against whom have been agitating the Presbyterian church for a year and a half came up this morning at the regular meeting of the New York Presbytery. The general assembly at the meeting in Portland, Ore., last May, refused to accept the preubytery's dismissal of the charges against 3Briggs and ordered the presbytery to proceed with the trial. The committee of trial consists of Rte. G. W. F. Birch, G. W. Lamroe, B. F. Sample and Elders J. J. Mo('ook and J. J. Steven son. There were present about half of the 215 members of the preebytery.

Fla., Oct. 8.-By the gen eral election law passed in 1889, the state and county elections in Florida was sepa rated from the national and congressional elections. 'IThis is the first year that the separation clause of the new statute is op erative. Tuesday Florida elects a governor, secretary of state, one justice of the su preme court, attorney general, comptroller, treasures, superintendent of public instrao tions and commissioner of agriculture. All counties will choose members of the lower honse of the legislature, and sixteen out of the thirty-two senatorial diatriete will choose state senrators, and all counties choose county oflicers. 't'here are two full state tickets in the field, those of the dern ocrats and of people's party, the former headed by Henry L. Mitchell for governor, the latter by Alonzo P. Baskin. The pro hibitionists have a candidate for governor, N. J. Hawley, but this party is not likely to poll over 500 votes in the entire state. I he republicans have no nominations this year. either national electors, congressmen, state or county oflicers. The reason alleged is the unfairness of the present election laws passed by a democratic legislator. An agreement is said to have been en tered into by which republican votes will be known for the people's party candidates, but as a general thing the republicans have not qualified for the election by registering and paying poll taxes.

IWO NOTABLE RECRUIIS, Republicans of National Reputation Continue to Come Over to the Demoocrats. Wayne MaoVeagh and Thomas M. Cooley Reported to Have Bolted Harrison. The Former Was Garfleld's Attorney General, the Latter Is Ex-Chairman of the Interstate Commission Nxw Yonx, Oct. 3.-The Times says: "A statement was made in political circles to night with reference to the assertion from the republican party of two republicans of national prominence, which caused some thing of a sensaton wherever it was heard. Wayne McVeagh, United States attorney general under Garfield, and ex-Judge Thomas M. Cooley, of Michigan, formerly chairman of the interstate commission, are the men said to have decided to give their suppart to the democratic candidates and their endorsement to the democratic issues as defined in this campaign. There was re liable authority for the statement that each of these men would soon make public a let ter in which, over their own signatures, they would set forth the reasons which had led to their change of heart." A dispatch from Ann Arbor, Mieb., says Judge Cooley this afternoon declined to confirm or deny the statement published in the New York Times this morning to the effect that he is about to wiite a letter bolting the republican party, and declaring in favor of Cleveland. All he would say was that the statement was unauthorized and that he is in too poor health to eater actively into politics. P'OPULISTS OUT OF LUCK. l'ennoyer, Ife of Oregon, Joins Their RIanks and Advocates Their Cause. RosEnvao. Ore., Oct. 8.-Gov. Pennoyt. addressed a mass meeting of the people's party here. He denounced the course of both democratic and republican parties, said the bulk of federal taxation should be levied upon wealth rather than upon the labor and the industries of the country and there should be free and eanal coinage of gold and silver, and the paper money re quired should be issued direct by the gov ernment and be full legal tender. In ad vocating these measures he said he found himself outside of the political organiza tion to which he formerly belonged and added, "It is the fault of, not the misfor tune of, the democratic party, which, hav ing abandoned its principles ought now by right to abandon its name. The great political party has proved recreant to all traditions and foreewearing its fealty to the cause of the people has knelt in blind idolatrous devotion at the shrine of a man whose sole distinguishing charasteriatio is his stubborn subserviency to the oemands of the monometallists. The Chicago con vention turned its back upon all its revered traditions and made a profound salaam to the great Jose set up by the devotees of monomnetallism and bank ral money. The nomination of Harrison and Cleveland, of like principles and policy upon the leading questions, by the opposing political parties, is an anomaly in the political world, but fortunately for the country, a new party has entered the political arena in antagon ism to both." Democratic Club Convention. NEW Your, Oct. 3.-The convention of New York state democratic clubs drew a big crowd to Chickering hall to-day. Most of the persons present in addition to the delegates, were attracted to the place in the hope of seeing ex-President Cleveland, who did not attend, however. The platform ex presses firm belief in tariff revision as abso lutely necessary to the continued prosperity of the country. The force bill and David Martin and M. S. Quay, with their methods, were roundly denounced. The Harrison administration was also denounced, while contrasted with it was the record presented by the safe and honorable administration of Grover Cleveland, David B. Hill and tosewll P. Flower. Levy on the Postmasters. NEw YonK. Oct. 3.-The American Pro tective Tariff league has issued another con fidential floater fund circular to the post masters of the country. It requests each postmaster to become the official corre spondent of the league "in his loeality, to secure information and exert every legiti mate influence in favor of protection and reciprocity." In order to provide for all expense of this work it is suggested that every postmaster secure a contribution of $t$ to tile league funds. These funds will provide for the circulation of protection literature, which the league offers to send direct to voters or in bulk to "oorre spondents." Take Demollcracy Straight.
