The Ship Railway Across Mexico.
The Summary is the authority for the following The ship railway across the Mexican Isthmus of Tehauntepec is being pressed forward in earnest.
The survey of the isthmus has been completed under the care of Mr.
Van Brocklin, an eminent American civil engineer. A route with even more moderate gradients and cuttings than were expected has been adopted, and the works have been commenced Mr. J.
Eads, C. E, the builder of the great steel bridge across the Mississippi at St.
Louis, and whose improvement of the Mississ ippi navigation has opened up New Or leans to ships of the deepest draught, is now in London concerting business ar rangements with shipowners and others, and the probabilities is that the ship rail way will come under British control finan cially and otherwise.

And why Simply because of the pernicious habits of some newspaper pro prietors claiming more circulation than they really have, and which the entire community know they have not.
We do not assail any paper in particular, but mean to war against the habit which is sapping the best blood of the business, and lowering the members of the fourth estate.
We aim to induce a change from this premeditated enlargement of circula tion on paper, and bring all publishers to deal fairly with their fellow business men, as men generally do who buy and sell by some standard.
Honest publishers now adays have very hard lines.
If they give their real circulation some rival will bra zenly assert double his circulation, and both will be measured up by the same rule and neither believed The Canadian Sugar Tariff.
Among the proposed changes in the tar iff of the Dominion is the repeal of the present duties on sugar and syrup and the subsitution of the following Sugar, provided it b imported direct without transhipment from country of growth, above No.
