BORROWS MONEY IN EUROPE
NICARAGUA SUCCESSFUL IN FLOATING LARGE LOAN. Intended to Consolidate Outstanding Indebtedness and Complete the Transcontinental Railroad. Announcement was made yesterday afternoon at the Nlcaraguan legation In this city of the sucessful conclusion by the Nlcaraguan government of negotia tions with European capitalists for the floating of a large loan. While the amount of this loan 1s not made known at this time, it Is said to be large enough to allow the Nlcaraguan government to consolidate Its entire outstanding indebt edness, claimed to be the smallest of that of any Central American republic, and to complete the construction of the transcontinental railroad from the Pa cific to the Atlantic. Confidence is expressed in Washington that the floating of the new loan will prove a great boon to Nicaragua. Not only is it interpreted as meaning that European capitalists have confidence in" the ability and disposition of the Nlca raguan government to meet its obliga tions, but It is taken as a forerunner of the greater commercial development of the country. The railroad in question is a govern ment enterprise and will extend 120 miles from San Miguelito, a port on the eastern shore of Lake Nicaragua, to Mon key Point, where is located an excellent h%rbor on the Atlantic coast. The sur vey for the road Is through a mountain ous section of the country, rich In tim ber. rubber and minerals. For years capitalists have agreed that it will tap one of the richest countries in Central America. The most important feature of the pro posed line Is its being the last link in a transcontinental route across Nicaragua. There already exists a railroad from Puerto de Corinto, on the Pacific ocean, to Granada, on the western shore of Lake Nicaragua, a distance of about 130 miles. Cushing Again in Service. The United States Army quartermas ter's steamer Lieut. Alonzo Cushing, which for several years past did duty as tender between this city and Fort Wash ington and Fort Hunt until displaced by the larger steamer Col. Robert Swart wout, is temporarily In service between Baltimore and Its defenses along the Pa tapsco river in place of the steamer Gj?rigg Carroll, which has been withdrawn from service for extensive repair work. The Cushing, it is stated, will remain at Baltimore for a month or two while the Carroll is out of commission, and when relieved from duty will be given an over hauling preparatory to sending her to Fort Scriven, Ga., to which post she has been permanently assigned. The Cush ing was found to be too small to handle the business between this city and the Potomac forts, and this was the cause of her being relieved by a larger vessel. New Ocean Chart Issued. A chart of the south Atlantic ocean, the first ever made of that portion of the Atlantic by the American hydrographers, has been Issued from the hydrographic di vision of the Navy Department to those interested in South American commerce. The new chart gives the best routes to be followed by a ship on a voyage along the South American coast or to Africa, and also gives the best paths to be fol lowed between the two continents. , The preparation of the new map is a result of the big increase in trade between this country and south Atlantic ports and the advent of the chart is eagerly welcomed by navigators of all flags who have se cured It. Pineapples Coming to Baltimore. Within the next few days the vessels that left Baltimore about a month ago for ports In the Bohema Islands to load pineapples for Baltimore will be returning with their cargoes of the fine fruit, tlie bulk of which will find its way into the packing houses that can the fruit for win ter use. The schooner Levi B. Phillips, well known at this port, will lead the procession of pineapple laden vessels Into Baltimore harbor, and her advent there is looked for at any time. She sailed "from Gregorytown May 15, and unless disturb ed by the northeast gales Is now nearing the capes and should be heard from shortly.
