Tho following Is nn abstract of tlio principal
points In tlio report of Admiral Amnion mul
A. 0. Mcnocal to tlio Secretary of State with
reference to tlio recent International const ess
convened In Paris to consider tlio question of
an iutcr-occanlo ship canal :
Admiral Ainmen reports Ms arrival In tliat
city on May II, ami tho organization of tho
tongress In tlio hall of tlio Geographical Socie
ty on tlio following day.
On tlio Kith tlio congress met In committees
and listened to a presentation by Commander
Sclfrldgo of plans and estimates bawl upon tlio
snrvoysof Lieutenant Collins. U.S. N., over
the Atrato-Ntiplpl route. On the 17tli Admiral
Ammen gnvon rcenmoof tlio results of tlio dif
ferent expeditions cent out by tlio United
States Government to survey routes tlirougb
Ti'liuantcpcc, Nicaragua, rnnama, and Diiricu,
leaving Mr. Monocal to mako a tccliulc.il ex
planation of thu comnniativo merits of tlio
plans based upon theso surveys. On tlio after
noon of tlio samo day Lieutenant Wysc, of tlio
French navy, piescnttd bis plan for a canal
near tho lino of tho Panama Railway. This
plan was again taken up and a further elabor
ation of It mado by Lieutenants Wyso and
Kcclusc on tho 10th.
on the 20th another general session was held,
and Commander Selfrldge resumed his consid
eration of tho Atruto-Nuplpt route, reaching
favorable conclusions, which Admiral Amnion
thought and said wcro not Justified by tho re
ports of Lieutenant Collins, ou which they
Sir. Mcnocal was then Invited to explain
tho surveys and plans of tho Panama route,
which ho did with great clearness. Ho ex
posed tho hopelessness of an attempt to make
a Ebip-cnnal on that routo a nicrntu ; pointed
out beyond controversy thas if so mado thcro
would bo n cataract of tho river Chagrcs at
Mntachlti or foily-two feet, which lu periods
ofllood would be aovouty-clght foot high, of a
Lody of water that wuuld bo thirty-six feet
deep, with a width of l.GOO feet.
The surptise and painful emotion on tho part
of tboso who had plans a uheuii, and of their
very many Irlonils In attendance, can nanny
lie conceived. The fact stared them In the face
that the plans will' h they bad presented so
confidently lor adoption wore absolutely Im
practicable. Thcro was, howovor, after a day
or so, a picscutatlou of pUns and estimates of
tho cost of execution quite independent of a
sufficient knowledge of tho topography upou
which only they could bo proneily based.
Mr. Menoe.il went on to explain how a water
supply wus obtainable, and that, owing to tho
floods of the Chugrcs Itlvcr, it was Impossible
to lower the bottom of tho canal below the
height of tho aqueduct ns proposed by him,
crowing the river ut Mutavlilu. When ho con
cluded his picscntntlon of tho Panama routo
lio stilted that he would bo happy to answer
any questions which might bo proposed. Not
a question was asked.
On thu 21st a general session occurred, nud
tho icpurt of the committee ou tunneling was
read. This couilulttco was composed of tho
ablest engineers In Europo in that branch of
onaluccrlug. It Is sufficient to stato In brief
that It arrived at tho Impracticability, at what
ever cost, of constructing a tunnel n Mi'rcnti
that to to say, to securo nnylgablo waters at
tho ocean level by tho Panama routo.
Admiral Ammcn then proceeded to give In
detail tho piocccdlugs of tho following week,
which, however, nro without particular Inter
est. Ho then says from tho first slttlug It was
qulto apparent that thero wcro two parties
that wo wouid cat speculators, tho ono repre
sented by Mr. Blauchet, who had nu uncon
firmed giant troui tlio Mcaragtiau govern
ment, and Lieutenant Wyso, of tho French
navy, who had a grant from tho Colombian
government, embracing with a reservation tho
right to construct u ship caual over any part
of her tenltory,":" tho reservation applying
as I understand It to thu already conceded
right of the Panama Itallroad. Tho presumed
grant to Lieutenant Wyso was pub
lished In tho Now York Jlerahl nearly ono
year ago. Llcutenaut Wysu has tlio powerful
support of M. do Lessors. I need hardly add
that through tho geographical soclotles of Paris
and the method of appointing delegates to tho
congress tho hitter Is qulto ablo to have any
desired majority on a vote relating to tho re
spective merits of tho Nicaragua and Panama
routes. It is qulto appaieut, as the routes woro
prcseuted and discussed, that tho ablo en
gineers gcnornlly ranged themselves on tho side
of the Nicaragua route."
; On the 20th tho flnal full meeting of tho
congress took place to hear tho report of tlio
tcehuical committee and voto ou tho resolution
In favor of the Panama routo. The hall was
deneclv crowded and there wcro enthusiastic
manifestations of approval whenover n voto of
"Yes!" was given, wlilcn Admiral Amnion says
would hardly have been mo caso u vuo nun
lenco rcgaidcd the selection as dopondlug
wholly ou tho natural condition of physical
tauscs. Tho voto resulted yeas. 75; uuys,
S; abstaliilmi from votluir. 10: making a total
if OS out of the 1U3 delegates on tho list.
Admiral Amnion then draws the fallowing
lasclusioiis fiom tho proceedings nnd action of
tl o congress :
First That personal Interests, arising from
concession for tho construction of a canal
k:o uufavoiablo to a rclutlvo consideration of
laturnl advantages as between two or moro
routes; that such personal Interests did exist
ras qulto apparent from first to last, and the
oncesslon was frequently partially discussed
r alluded to, especially in tho committees or
Second That tho discussion lu Purls Inn
hown that heicaftci' In tho examination of
ho question only tho Nicaragua and Panama
tmtcs need critical examination aud that suf-
Iclent information exists as to all other routes.
Third That tho canal u nkeuu by tho Isth-
una of Panama, cither with or without a tun-
icl, has been shown to be hopelessly Imptnc-
llcabio If cousldcicd as a commercial qttes-
Fourth That a general and special knowl

The report of A. 0, Mcnocal, the other dclo
eatoon behalf of tho United Slates, Is a very
long and oxliaultlvo return, of tho discussions
of tho congress, especially thoso concerning
tho two rival routes of Nicaragua and Panama.
Ho concludes by saying that at tho final meet
ing of tho technical committee "It was nt last
agreed, amid great confusion nnd oxcUomcnt,
by a voto of 10 yeas, 11 nustcntlour,3 uays, and
7 absentees, that the committee, stnndlnr; on a
technical point of vlow, Is of tho opinion that
tho canal, such as would satisfy tho require
ments of commerce, Is possible across tho Isth
mus of Panama, and recommend especially a
canal nt tho level of tho sea."
A similar resolution was on tlio following
day adopted by a general meeting of. tho
congress. Tho voto was yeas, 72; nave, 8;
nbscntocs, 37, and abstentions, 1(1. Of tho
aintniatlvo voto only uliio wcro ongiucors,
nnd of tills last number eight aro at present,
or hiivobccii, connected with tho Suez Canal;
flvo nro not practical engineers, and only
ouo has been In Central Atnorlca. Ho Is a
young graduate of llttlo or no professional
experience, u nattvo of Panama, nud assisted
Lieutenant, Wyso lu his explorations, ut tno
flvo delegates of thu French Society of En
gineers two voted no and threo nbscntod them
selves from tho last two session of tho com
mittee nud tlio consress.
I abstained from voting, for tho rcasou that
tho resolution Is Indefinite as to what system
of caual should bo finally adopted. I bellovo
mat, a canal at tlio level or tlio sea, as pro'
posed. Is Immactlcablo. at least lu a coinnlor-
clal sense, but a canal with locks by Panama
has been shown to bo feaslblo by tho United
States Survoylng Expedition of 1875, nlthough
more expensive tliati that via Nicaragua, uy

tlio ono under consideration, without n propor
Know e-gc or tho around on w h cli tno worKS
nro to bo constructed, which was generally re
garded, at well as that of cost, to be a matter
lor alter cons deration.
Ono point, however, has boon gained by tho
discussion, viz. : That tho surveys mado by the
United States Government nro now well
known In Europe, nnd tho relative merits of
tho different routes well appreciated by many
engineers of oxperteuco nud great reputation,
us is shown by the report of the first sub
committee, a copy of which I respectfully
It Isexpcctcd that tho impracticable sclicmo
propossd by Panama will soon bo abandoned
for want of supporters.

Tho twenty-seven feet sower which Is now
in pioccss of construction outsldo the eastern
boundary of tho city or rather which was in
the process of construction until tntcriuptcd
by an liijuncllou Is a wonderful piero of on
gluecilng. Tho economy of tho thing can bo
understood when it Is known that tho Sam
Strong sower, which was completed a few years
slnco and wasasottrco of great expense to tho
District, is condemned aud torn up nud a new
one, uioro than doublo tho capacity Is being
put down lu its place. It passes outsldo tho

Kiamor diagonally, until it strikes (ho Isher

laid out In streets nud lots sultablo for build

is moro nnd worse, tho sower" whon completed

building purposes until It Is all Ailed lu, to tho
depth of somo twclvo or fifteen feet. Indeed,
the piopcrty will bo ruined should tho scwor
over bo completed, which will subject tho
District to heavy damages and endless law
Mr. Kramer has enjoined tho Commissioners
from prosecuting tho work, for tho rcasou
tliat It duinagcs Ills property, nud the District
authorities rofuso to tako measures to Indem
nify the damages. Now tho Commissioners
have resorted tondodgo which is illegal aud un
just to all tho property owners along the lluu of
tho sower. They have advertised that they
will iuvoko tho aid of a Jury ou Sat
unlay next for tho purpose of condemning tho
route of tlio b'owcr as a roadway. This Is nu
unlawful and tyrannical procedure, as no
property cau legally bo condemned ns a road
way unless it Is naked for by tho residonts or
ownois of tho property through which It Is to
pass, and no such request has been made lu this
instance. The uctluu of tho Commissioners lu
this caso is hlgh-hamlcd, uuiawful, aud arbi
trary, aud only goes to confirm the opinion
tliat in tho dischaigo of their duties thoy do
no regard tho tux-payers of tho District as
possessed of any rights that their oppressive
rulres are bound tn respect, rue uz.tr ot Jtussin

ily this arrangement of tlio commission tho
Secretary of State has boon able to economize
In tho Item of salaries of commissioners, Mr.
Spencer being ulifndy lu receipt of a salary as

that tbo panic resulted from too much per
