The Isthmian canal commission has completed its final report, which Will be submitted to congress at the next ses sion, It is reported that the Nicaraguan route ha/i been abandoned in favor of the Panama ditch. The reasons are many, and need not be named. It might be well, however, to remark that one of the chief advantages of the Panama proposition is the superiority of its har bors over those of the other route. The controlling consideration, without doubt, is the fact that the Panama ditch is two thirds completed and will be finished by some- one, even if the Nicaraguan route be- adopted by the United States, thus creating competition in a business which does not promise a fair profit for one. The adoption of the Panama route would evade, in a measure, the difficulty over the Clayton-Bulwer treaty, as Panama ls a portion of South America, but on the other hand complications of a serious nature surround the franchise of the present canal company. It contains con ditions which the United States ought not and will not accept. A way out of all our difficulties ls suggested In the Idea of annexation. Let us see. We offered arm ed intervention to secure Porto Rico and the Independence (?) of Cuba, because our safety depended on the stability of the government of the islands so close to our shores. We demanded the cession of the Philippines on the ground (we suppose as no other has ever been offer ed) that we needed an empire in the far East to protect a coaling station on the Asiatic coast. Would it not be eminently logical to demand the cession of Panama with the canal, oh the ground that the possession of this highway of the world is necessary to our safety? Can we en dure? as a republic while revolution after revolution sweeps over that narrow neck of land which joins us to the range of mountains, known as South America? Are we not put to great expense and anxiety of mind in keeping gunboats and other evidences of our power in thess waters for the sake, of peace? Must wa not patrol our- shores to prevent fili bustering parties from going to the help of the legitimate presidents of these re publics when they have a revolution or two on their hands? Have not these countries; or' at least, one of them, de fled our asphalt companies within the". borders? It Is high time that the ad ministration intervened in this matter. These revolutions must cease or the countries in which they originate be an nexed. This excitement about a greater republic with Panama as Its most im portant asset is a menace to our mill-, tary situation in Luzon. An army should be sent down there at once, under either Otis or Mac Arthur, to take possession of the whole isthmus and begin on the be nevolent assimilation racket. We need ed naval stations in Cuba and all the ■other islands in the West Indian group, to protect that Nicaraguan canal which we have not yet got. Much more, then, do we need the entire isthmus to protect the canal which we may buy. For is not the entire Republican party wedded to a canal under the control of Uncle Sam all by his lonesome? Let us cut the Gordian knot with one fell stroke of the intervention ax. The precedents are ampPj. If not, we can call up the mighty shade of the Monroe doctrine and get behind it. Does not the Monroe doctrine mean America for Americans with a wall around it? And is not Panama American soil and are we • not the only Americans worth mentioning? The pub lic man or the journal who or which hesitates to adopt and forward this nec essary defense of our flag and its pre rogatives, is a traitor and an enemy of his or its country. More than that, ho or it, is a menace to tha military situa tion in China. -1 PACIFIC CABLE. While; the upper house of the fifty sixth congress was wrangling over the? nefarious ship subsidy measure, and the no less objectionable general appropria tion bill and allowing important legisla tion to be pigeon-holed, the govern ments of Australia, New Zealand, Can ada and England, anticipated the wants cf the commercial world by deciding to expend $12,000,000 on a Pacific cable from Australia to Vancouver. The money was pledged by this quartette and con struction begun at once. A Pacific cable under British control is an assured fact. The enterprise and shrewd business fore sight of the Britishers have appropriated a field that should have been occupied two years ago by the United States. At the next session of congress this straw will be threshed over again and mayhap an appropriation will bo made to lay an other Pacific cable. But will the busi ness of the Orient warrant the expense of two lines? It probably will not, for many years, and the American enter- prise which would have been a paying venture from j the first had action taken the place of talk, will now be a doubtful proposition. At present the news from our Eastern possessions must come under the ocean from Manila to Hongkong. : thence along the Astatic shores through the Red and Mediterranean seas, then across the At lantic. The cost is ordinarily 12.25 a word, but rush matter goes as high as $7.50 per word. ..: > This rate will be somewhat lowered upon the completion of the new Aus tralian cable, but if we continue in our conquering and civilizing mission in the East we will expend enough each year to lay a long section of a Pacific cable. We have been at this Pacific cable business for the last ten years with but one result—the survey. . Two routes have * been reported. One from Manila to Guam, a distance of 1,350 miles; from Guam to Wake Island, a distance of 1,300 miles; - from...Wake island to Midway island, 1,750 miles, from Midway to Honolulu and then to San Francisco, a distance of 4,400 miles—a total of 8,800 mile- from Manila to the Golden Gate. The estimated cost of a cable over this route Is $8,500,000. The other route, and the one adopted by the Canadian and Austrian combina tion, begins at Victoria, touches at Manila, Tcklo, the -Western Aleutian islands and then follows the shallow water of the North Pacific to Vancouver. The route is somewhat longer, but the deep water ofi the Central Pacific is avoided. This latter route follows under the sea, the general course of the overland route which was projected and partly built when the successful laying of the Atlan tic cable by Cyrus Field rendered the project impracticable. This gigantic un dertaking to unite Europe and America was well under way and no doubt would have been in operation today, had not the perseverance of Field found an easier route along the bed of the At lantic. This overland telegraph line was to leave the United States where the Red river crosses the border of Canada. From Winnipeg it was to reach northwest to the Mackenzie river, which was to be followed to the divide at the head waters of the Yukon; down that river to the point nearest Bering strait. From the Asiatic side the route was to follow the line of least resistance to Europe. Had this enterprise met with success, the Orient would have been opened to our trade to the disadvantage of Europe, for as yet the Suez canal , had not been bunt. The poles gathered from the scanty forests of Northern Siberia have long since become mellow with rot, and the trail made by the intrepid engineers is forgotten. _"Ut : through ' the 'Northwest, the ancient line to Alaska has been re vived in reaching the Yukon country. To the man without an ax to grind, the Pa cific cable project appears of more con sequence than an Isthmian canal. Trade follows, not the flag, but the' lines of com munication. The more accessible a land, the nearer it is for all purposes. A Pa cific cable will reduce the distance from San Francisco to Manila one-half. VAN SAXT I'KJtSVS M'KTXLKY. An Qttertail county subscriber wants the Globe to referee' the following dis pute: .._Mo..-..i ;.,_«_: ; .<■. '-;..,■ Fergus Falls,, Minn., Aug. - 23.—Editor Go be: How much did Gov. Van Sant run behind President ?"cKinley in the last election in Minnesot: '.' I put it at over 70,000, and another-- man says not over -w.OOO. The difference is that I hold that in comparing running of two'canddates the majorities should be looked, at; while the other man says' only the vote of Van Sant and McKinley should be looked at We leave it to' you to decide how Van Sant's run compares with. that of Mc- Klnley, and oblige. Yours truly, , —John • Carlson. The Minnesota vote for president and governor, respectively, in the last elec tion was President—McKinley, 190.461- Bryan 112,901; plurality for McKinley, 77,560.' Percentage of combined ,vote received, McKinley, 62.78 per cent; Bryan, 37.21 per cent. Governor—Van Sant, 152,905; Lind 150 --651; plurality for Van Sant, 2,254. Per centage of combined vote. Van Sant 50.37 per cent; Dind, 49.62 per cent. In comparing the running qualities of two or more candidates, pluralities, of course, should be taken Into considera tion. McKinley's plurality was 77,560, and Van Sant's, 2,254; that Is, to say, Van Sant's plurality was 75,000 less than Mc- Kinley's. Van Sant's vote, it is true, was only 37,556 less than McKinley's; but that is only half the story, the other half being, that Lind's vote was 37.750 more than Bryan's. If the Republican voters who cut Van Sant— in number—had re ftained from voting for governor and simply contented themselves with scratch ing Van Sant, it would be correct to say that Van Sant ran only 37,556 votes be hind McKinley. But as. Van Sant's op ponent, John Dind, not only polled the entire Bryan vote, but 37,750 which be longed to Van Sant besides, it requires the sum of the two items, or 75,00) votes, to tell the complete story of compara tive running ability. Another compari son is that of the percentage of votes cast. The presidential vote was 62.78 per cent for McKinley, to 37.21*-per cent for Bryan; the gubernatorial percentage be ing, 50.37 per cent for Van Sant to 49.62 per cent for Lind. In other words, Mc- Kinley had a margin of 25.57 per cent to spare over Bryan, while Van Sant had a margin of only 0.75 per cent to spare over Lind. In-this connection, the gubernatorial votes of recent years make an interesting study. Knute Nelson, In 1894, an off-year, polled almost the vote of Van Sant in 1900, while "Dave" Clough in 1896 polled 13,000 more than Van Sant received four years later. This is partially accounted for, however, by the change in the state election laws, requiring foreign-born voters to be fully naturalized and in pos session of both first and second papers before they can vote. This law dis franchised in 1898 apparently about 80,000 voters who cast ballots In 1896, and even in 1900 caused Minnesota's presidential vote to be 30,000 lighter than four years before. The fluctuations due to this cause must be considered In the following comparison of votes during the. three Lind campaigns of 1896, 1898, and 1900: Republican Candidates for Governor— THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, SATURDAY, AUGUST 31. 1901. 1896, D. M. Clough, 165,807'; 1898 W. H. Euscis, 111,625; 1900, Van Sant 152 905. Democratic or Fusion Candidates—lß96, Lind, 162,311; 1898, 131,980. and 1900, 150,651. To bring out the relative vote-getting ( power of Clough and Van Sant as Re publican opponents of John Lind it would be necessary to take Into consideration McKinley's 1896 and 1900 vote in Minne sota in order to show the relative party strength at the two elections. That Is easily accomplished, as follows: 1896—McKinley's plurality over Bryan in Minnesota, 53,875; dough's over Lind, 3,496. 1900—McKinley's plurality over Bryan, 77,560; Van Sant's over Lind, 2,254. In other words, while the plurality for the head of the national Republican ticket in Minnesota was 23,685 larger in 1900 than in 1896, the plurality of Lind's opponent for governor was 1,242 smaller. This would Imply, first, that as between McKlnley and Bryan the former was ; comparatively stronger in Minnesota in j 1900, than in 1896; and second, that as be- j tween John Lind and his , opponents, ' either Lind was stronger in 1900 than in' 1896, or Clough was a stronger opponent ! than Van Sant. i "') On the latter score, it is interesting to . note: First, that while Clough was ; scratched to the extent of 27.694 ballots j cast for McKinley In 1896, Van Sant in ! 1900 was scratched 57,556; and second, that ! while John Lind polled 30,287 votes more ( than Bryan in 1896, he polled 37.750 more : than Bryan in 1900. This would seem to' imply that in the four-year period, 1896 --1900, the Democratic candidate for gov ernor had gained strength, while the head of the Republican ticket had lost.

PRIZE WINNER WINS AGAIN. J. R. Wood's Selection of Oklahoma Homestead Confirmed. WASHINGTON, Aug. 30.-In the con test case of J. D. Calvert against James R. Wood, coming from the Lawton (Okla.) land district, and involving entry No. 1, the acting secretary of the interior has rendered a decision refusing to or der a hearing in the case. The charges upon which the contest was founded were substantially that Wood's entry was made in violation of the homestead law by reason of its location in the south line of the town of Lawton, and that th« entry embraces a tract a mile long and only a quarter of a mile wide, and was so taken for speculative purposes and not for agricultural purposes and that the entry was made at a time when there was a large number of town site settlers on the land who occi pied it for trade and business purposes. The decision holds that the selection and "?ntry"._fflancU.4dja.cent to the'town of Lawton was noj in violation of the letter orspiflt of-the law, -and* that* the fact that there may have been allegod town site settlers.-on- the- lands -at the time he made his entry does not aff-ct Wood's right ■of entry. It is further held, in the opinionithat Wood's entry is not*invalid or* account of .the form of the tract embraced as the special provisions of the act !of May '•_, 1890, do not control in this matter. politicly§fM JKM. » -—*Ji —— ---= The country press, almost unanimous ly, has taken the -part of the board of control In Us squabble with the normal board.
