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.
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
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.

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-
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—
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,
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.

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.
