THE NICARAGUA CANAL.
The Nicaragua canal is one of the
principal subject of discussion just now,
and indeed gives promise of becoming
an issue of the next political campaign.
But little is known by those who have
not taken the trouble to look the matter
tip, concerning the route, or feasibility
of constructing a canal and completing
waterway across so wide an isthmus.
The formation of the country is peculiar,
a remarkable depression extending for
three hundred miles northwest and
southeast, parallel with the Pacific
coast and transversly to the Central
American plateau, which it almost com
pletely interrupts. This depression,
which lies at a mean elevation of
scarcely one hundred feet above the eea,
is now flooded by two great lakes, Mana
gua and Nicaragua, which collect nearly
all the drainage of the western province,
discharging it into the Atlantic through
the San Juan river.
The exploration of the route was
made by Commodore Lull, and is said to
show a practicable route, with lake Nica
ragua as its summit level, 107 feet above
the sea. This route requires a canal 16
miles long, beginning at the mouth of
the Rio del Medio and terminating at
Brito. The first seven and a half miles
will require an excavation averaging
fifty-four feet in depth, and will be the
most expensive part of the whole work
Ten locks and one tide lock will be re
quired between the lake and the Pacific
There will then be fifty-six miles of lake
navigation. From the lake the At
lantic will be reached through the San
Joan river, a sluggish stream 400 yards
broad and from ten to twenty feet deep,
which will be improved by four dame
A ehort section of canal, with one lock,
will be required to get around each of
the upper three dams. From the fourth
to the Carribean sea a canal forty-two
miles loDg will be cut, requiring seven
One of the principal difficulties will
be in maintaining a sufficient depth of
water at Greytown, the Atlantic ter
minus of the canal. Some question is
raised as to there being sufficient water
to maintain the canal. This seems to be
set at rest by an examination of the
lake, the watershed and the rainfall.
Lake Nicaragua has an area of 2,700
square miles, a drainage area of 8,000
square miles, and an average rainfall of
102 inches, and will supply, according to
actual measurements of the discharge of
the San Juan river, thirty .eight times
as much water as would be required.
David Stevenson, the eminent English
engineer, arrives at the conclusion, from
documents submitted to him by an au
thorized official of the Unite-1 States,
and prepared by its authority, that the
principal engineering difficulty is to
maintain deep water through an exten
sive shallow foreshore, composed of soft
materials and exposed to heavy seas.
The estimated cost of the canal is $100,
000,000. Another thing that must be
taken into consideration 13 that the
country is subject to severe earthquakes,
and while these have not been of suffi
cient violence or magnitude to materi
ally change the face of the country in
the past one hundred years, yet un
doubtedly they have been powerful
enough to have caused immense dam
age to such structures as dams and
canals had they been built at the time.
A resolution was adopted by the water
commission on October 31st, providing
that from and after January 1, 1895,
water rent will be collected from the
wners of buildings instead of tenants.
This inclu'des all occupancies, stores
residences, wash-houses, shops, etc.
will do vou as much eood as the one
that buys Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.

solute and permanent cure for Constipa

We have made arrangements with the
San Francisco Examiner to furnish it in
connection with The Chronicle. Hav
ing a clubbing rate with the Oregonian
and N. Y. Tribune for our republican
patrons, we have made this arrangement
for the accommodation of the democratic
members of The Chronicle family.
Both papers, the Weekly Examiner and
Semi-Weekly Chronicle will be fur
nished for one year for $2.25, cash in advance.
Do you want The Chronicle vand San
traneisco Examiner lor a year.' it so
send us $2.25 and you can have them,
156 papers for $2.25 or less than a cent
and a half a pioce. If you would rather
have the New York World, we will eend
you that and the Semi-Weekly Chron
icle one year for $2.25. The World is
also a Bemi-weekly so you will get 208
papers for $2.25. .
To relieve headache, correct disorders
af the stomach and increase the appetite,
and for the cure of liver complaint, use
Ayer's Cathartic Pills. They are per
fectly safe to take, and invariably pro
mote a healthy action of the digestive
and assimilative organs.
The regular subscription price of the
Weekly Chronicle is $1.50 and the
regular price of the Weekly Oregonian
is $1.50. Any one subscribing for The
Chronicle and paying for one year in
advance can get both The Chronicle
and the Weekly Oregonian for $2.00.
All old subscribers paying their sub
scriptions a year in advance will be en'
titled to the same offer.

ine leiegram last night printed a
lengthy article concerning the express
robbery here, stating that it got its
facts from' a prominent Dalles citizen.
We doubt not but that the gentleman
who gave the information so glibly was
honest in his opinions, and did not stop
to think he was acting as judge, jury
na executioner, it tne parties are
guilty they ehould be punished: but
they are not proved guilty yet, not by
considerable. The case has not been
tried yet, nor has the evidence of but
one side been heard. We all of us have
an opinion concerning the guilt or inno
cence of the defendants, and while it
may seem strange to those who have al
ready found all the defendants guilty,
there are some people who are firmly
convinced of the innocence of some of
the parties. When the evidence is all
in it will be time to pass judgment.
Some subjects grow decidedly weari
some before they are finally dropped
from the newspapers. Kings and em

medicines were sold, the proprietor noticed
my weak and sickly appearance, and, after
a few questions as to my health, recom
