The immense pile of buildings form excellent accomn eodation for the 250 teachere and a large lecture hall not only provides ample space for the teaching wlk, but a loouny stage fitted with pianos and at plantols gladden the hearts of the amateur entrepreneurs who orgiatise con. carts, recitaln and dances for the evenings.

It favours the Nicaragua route, and estimuates the cost by that route at 189,864, 002 dollars. The esti:ns.ted cost. of a route by the Panama route is 144,2;3,??8 .dollars, but it would cost 109,141,0U0 dollars to obtain the concession for the canal. The report values the work already done at 40,000,000 dollars. The Panama project, It continues is the more teasible, as the canal would be level with the sea. The Nicaragua pro ject would involve the construction of locks, but Lake Nicaragua would furnish an inexhaustible supply of water. The Nicaragua route has no nat ural harbours at either end, but satisfactory harbours might be con structed. There are already har bours at each end of the Panama route, but considerable work would have to be done at the cntratnce to the harbour on the Atlantic side.

Mr. Dixon spending £6,000 over and above the £10,000 bestowed by the then Mr. Erasmus Wilson, the expense being greatly In creased by the loss of the Needle during a storm, in which six men were drowned in a fruitless attempt to recover it.
