He doubted if sucb a commission could complete Its Inquiry In time for the .ub mission of th? : atlon to the people at the N vember election thla year, but it could be I "?i In November, 1800, when there would be no general State election and no other proposition to distract the attention of voters. ALDRIDOE ANO ADAMS BLAMED There Isa al of criticism expressed by ? many persona Interested in the prosperity ol the canals because there was - th.- State Engineer and the Superintendent ol rub',,,? Works of th.? fact that more than $0.000,00 would he ?required until contracts had been mad? ig every dollar "f this large Bum.

Moreover, if the other members ol the Canal Board had known that $7,000,000 more would be require,;, they decided to trate all ' the $0.000.000 on the Erl? Canal Mr, A I it says that $11,031,123 must he apenl In the Improvement of the Erle -'.m?h and that does not take Into account that canal's ahare cf the englneei ex;.?-.s. which amounted to $."?12,000 in Btead of putting all the $0,000.000 on the Erie Canal, the money wa er all three ? ?=. and thui ? of them has ;, and $7,000,000 la d? i lare I n< - esaary to finish the work. ft me taxpayers lay that it looks to them as i if the near appr ach of the completion <>f the Rtate Capitol, with its annual million of outgo, had Inspired somebodj to Invent another hi? job, alth millions for contracts and that now, like the Capitol, the ?.nal sch ?m.? must be . carried on to the end or the milllona already .pe? i m 111 be I. at.
