Washington, Dm. 16 Representa
tive Hepburn da.) chairman of the
house committee on commerce, today
made the report of the committee in
favor of the Nicaragna canal bill. After
stating the terms of the bill, the report
aaye in pert :
"The purpose of this bill is to concen
trate authority and reeponeibility for the
construction of tbia great work in the
hands of the president. It baa been be
lieved by yonr committee that thia
course would be a safer one to be pnrsned
in carrying out the purposes of the bill
involving the expenditure ol so large a
sum of money, nil the work and all the
expenditure to be made at a distance bo
far from the capital, than any other
other method that could be devised. We
have tried to concentrate authority and
responsibility, rather than to disperse it
Among many persons."
The report refers to the "exhaustive
report made by the Isthmian Com
mission, of wbich Admiral Walker is the
head, in which every feature of this
enterprise is fully and at length dis
co seed," and adds :
"No doubt is xpressed by the com
mission as to the practicability of the
enterprise ; on the contrary, they join
with a score of predecessors in express
ing their belief that the work can te
carried to a successful termination with
in the limits of reasonable cost and
reasonable time. All of the great
political parties are committed to the
policy of the construction of this canal."
The report then quotes the declarations
of the various party platforms and
Presidents McKtoler and Roosevelt
favoring the canal. In conclusion, it
"In view of the many thousands of
pages written and spoken in advocacy of
of the immediate undertaking and com
pletion of this Work ; in view of the
pledges made by the parties that it
should be undertaken and completed;
in view of the recommendations made
by the president of the United States,
and in view of the almost universal
demand of the American people that
congress sbonld at once do something
effective in the inauguration and apeedy
completion of the Isthmian canal, your
committee content themselves with this
brief report, embodying their earnest
recommendation that the bill pass."

worse, a Union Pacific rotary snow-plow,
pushed by two big compound engine,
slashed its way into the rear of a train
of dead head tourist sleepers near Sher

caboose and nine tourist cars were com
pletely destroyed. The work of clearing
the track is slow, and tbe blockade may
last for an indefinite period.
A blockade at Ramsay, forty miles

of trains into Laramie from tbe west, and
the one at Sherman blocks traffic west

getting it back upon tbe rails. In
addition, tbe branch ia snowbound tor a
stretch of more than fifty miles.
