Tills "Americanizing" of tho Pana
ma canal, as ono of tho gentlemen in
forested in the new company styled it
yesterday, has been brought about in
order to place tho I'anama canal on a
footing in America more satisfactory to
l ho French company, and to place it
on tho same base tb tho Nicaragua
canal before tho United States govern
ment. An isthmian canal commission, with
Hoar-Admiral W'alkor ns chairman, is
now at work making an exhaustive
study of all iwsiblo routes for a canal
across tho isthmus of Central America.
This commission was created in the
closing hours of tho last congress, and
$1,000,000 was appropriated for its uso
through ttho river and harbor bills.
Its rojwrt will undoubtedly be final as
far as tho United'States is "concorned as
Ut tho best route for a canal. Its par
tics, both engineering and exploring,
are now scattered ovor Central America,
obtaining material to assist tho com
mission in forming conclusions.
Tho French company, realizing tho
imjKjrtanco of tho commission's find
ings, has taken tho stops which have
been described, behoving that tho canal
commission would naturally bo enabled
to judgo more impartially between the
two routes with both under American
control. Tho gentlemen of tho French
company long siuco rccognizod that
tho undertaking of a canal across Nica
ragua either by tho United States or by
private parties with tho assistanco or
indorsement of tho United States would
Ihi a most serious blow to thoir project,
but tho American financiers who have
formed tho now company, now that tho
two routos aro on an oven footing, and
that judgment will bo mado only on
tho grounds of engineering and general
desirability, they arguo that the
"Americanizing" of Panama is tho
only way by. which tho 400 shareholders
can havo any hope of any roturn from
tho if200.000.000 which has gono out of
France and into tho canal, and they bo
Hove that this arrangomont can pro
iluco only good feeling botweon tho two
Sinco 1881, when tho French com
pany was lormcil, tnero nas neon ex
pended in work on tho canal somothing
liko $8,000,000. Sovoral thousand
men, mostly nogrocs from Jamaica,
havo been employed, and oxports do
claro that tho monoy has boon proproly
oxpendod, and that good progress has
been mado. Thoro is n largo number
of men at work on tho canal at tho
proseut timo, and this forco will bo
found at work by tho canal commission
whon it goos ovor tho routo, which will
probably bo during February. Tho
canal is about two-fiths completed,
nnd tho now American company esti
mates that tho cost of completion
would bo about $100,000,000.
