TOO MUCH HAIR.
Wabash, Ind., Feb, io.—Andrew
Teeter, a barber at Akron, 20 miles
northwest of this city, is at deaths'
door from a peculiar cause, tie has
followed his trade for years, and some
time sgo his lungs became affected.
A specialist brought from Wisconsin
made an examination and found the
patients' throat and bronchial tubes
full of short hairs imbedded in the
membrane. It is thought the hairs
were inhaled while Teeter clipped
hair, and the irritation brought on
tuberculosis. His death is a matter of
only a few days.
MR. WU EXPLAINS. ,
Washington Feb. 10 —The Chinese
minister, Mr. Wu, made the following
statement tod y, intending to correct !
what he regai Is as a  misrepresenta- '
tion of the United   States   iu    regard
to    the      Chinese      exclusion    act.
The minister said: '"There seems to be j
some misunderstanding  with  regard
to tbe letter I wrote to the state department concerning the Chinese exclusion act. now   before   congress,   I
am told that tbe impression prevails
that I antagonize tbe laboring men of
this country. That is not true. I rev
er said anything to cast the slightest
reflection upon the laboring men of j
America, who are uselul members of I
a community. Why even in Chiaa,
according to our classification  of pro*
fessione, the working man ranks higher than the merchant and tradesman.
This shows   how  China   appreciates
him, and  nothing  was  farther from
my thoughts than   to   say   anything
which could be construed as reflecting
upon this class."

We Can Do Your Job Printing,
The Job Department of The Evening Sun is now prepared to turn out
printing in style and quality equal to
the best. Give us a trial as we are
sure we can suit you.
Tbe current issue of the B. C. Gazette contains the new regulations regarding stationary engineers. From
them it will be seen that some men
will lose their jobs. Many good engineers in a practical sense who have
continued their vocation for years
with satisfaction both to the employers and men, have little or no knowledge of arithmetic, euclid and algebra. It is claimed that to ask these
men who are now up in years, to pass
an examination ou these subjects or
have their positions taken away is a
hardship, and they will have a good
deal of public spmpathy.
The physical force party being- in
power in Ireland, fears are entertained that a rebellion may break out at

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY n, 1902

THE ISTHMIAN CANAL
One by one the months of the new
century record some mighty step in
the world's progress, which all tend
in the same direction, namely, to bring
the world nearer together and make
an international world-life possible.
In the upper branch of the United
States congress is being considered the
most stupendous piece of engineering
work ever undertaken by man. This
is no less a project than an inter-
•ceanic ship canal across the Isthmus
of Panama. To accomplish this two
routes are available-the Nicaragua
route and the purcnase and completion of the Pai.ama. A brief comparison of ths two routes will demonstrate
the superiority of Ihe latter.
Total length—Panama, 49 miles ;
Nicaragua, 1S6.50 miles.
Length and sharpness of curvature—
Panama, total lehPth 22.85 miles, total
number of decrees 771; Nicaragua,
total lengtli 49 29 miles, total number
of degrees 2339.
Summit level—Panama, 90 feet;
Nicaragua, no feet.
Time of tiansit—Panama, 11 hours
14 minutes; Nicaragua, 13 hours.
Cost—Panama, $184,233,359, Nicaragua. $189,864,062.
Tbe time lor the completion of either
canal would be practically the same —
about ten years.
Nicaragua involves the construction
and operation uf 1 ight widely separated locks, whereas at Panani.i there
are but two levels and two sets of lo_ks.
The cost of constructing the Nicaragua canal, now that the Panama
company has offered tu sell its property for £40,000,01 o, would be 85,630,-
700 greater, coupled with the fact that
a canal at Nicaragua would cost 81,-
300,000 every year to maintain and
operate.
The risks of operating are considerably leas at Panama, lor the reason
thai vessels will spend far less time
within what might be called the ''danger 7.011 '"—that portion of the canal
which is above tide level.
I he total cost ol completing the
Panama canal is estimated at 8144,-
233,358, while tho total cost of building Nicaragua will be $189,864,062.
The Panama Canal company, however, has offered to sell all its properties at the price named by the commission, $40,000,000, thus making the
cost of the completed Panama canal
$184,233,358. This renders it cheaper
by $5,630,604. The commission say
it will cast $1,300,000 more every year
to iHiiiit.iin a il perate Nicaragua
than it wl 1 Panama This inn, capitalized at 4 percent anil added lo   t.'.e
cost of constructing Nicaragua, makes
the Panama  canal,   considered   as a
I
financial proposition, over $38,000,000
cheaper in the long run than the
Nicaragua canal,
i Although the Hepburn canal bill,
providing lor the Nicaragua route, has
been passed by the hous- of representatives by a practically unanimous
vote, it is significant that an amendment authorizing the president to negotiate lor the Panama as well as the
Nicaragua route was lost by 102 votes
to 107. This result would indicate
that if the senate should send the bill
back to the house, amended so as to
previde (or tbe building of the canal
on the Panama route, the house would
accept the revision.
The Pacific coast would derive the
greatest benefit from the construction
of the canal, in the shape of greatly
reduced freight rates. On imperishable goods from Atlantic ports the rate
should be reduced by one-halt at least.
The dangernns voyage around Cape
Horn, with its innumerable wrecks
and great loss of life, would also be a
thing of past history. But who can
estimate the far-reaching influence of
this last gigantic undertaking?

COLUMBIA, B. C.
Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
The City of Columbia is situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vnneouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not excelled In Amerien. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling wnier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pictiiresquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora & Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds aud yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental tines.
The Canadian Pacifie railway oom-
pany has large interests in the city,
having selected, the site on account of
the superior natural advantages ni a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,Us the best iu Caiiadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent -if fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.J
Apples, plums, peirs, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material Is plentiful In the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and briok lime and stone
of good quality can always he obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
Importance to this country, and will
do muoh to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent, to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind In America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the line climate, the central situation, the beantible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally nllied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.
