Another prophecy uttered by Mr
Blaine in the conversation which I had
with him three yours ugo is worth re
calling at this time. "Beforo live years
have passed," suid ho in Februury, IWW,
'the people of tho United States will
perceive the uocessity of building the
Nicaragua canal, Thoy will see that
completion of this great enterprise is 11
measure of national protection which
must not be longer neglected. With
that canal completed and under such
auspices that in time of war tho United
States may take ikissossIou of it and
close it to the vessels of tho ouotiiy our
position will bo Impregnable,
"By means of this quick and easy way
of transferring our lleetH from one ocean

advantage over every other ualioti
Moreover, we can inukuLako Nicaragua,
which lies between tlio two oceans and
which could be defended against all the
powers In tho world, a great naval sup
ply and outlining station. That lako is
largo and deep enough to lloat tho navies
of the earth, and there wo can erect dry
docks and machine shops and storo va'jt
quantities of coal and munitions. Willi
tills canal completed aud under our con
trol we shall, even with a moderate
navy, bo absolute masters of tho waters
of the West Indies and of tho two South
These words wero prophetic, becaua.'
thoro is now in Washington a general
belief that bo In re this congress adjourns
somo action will bo taken looking to
completion of tho Nicaragua canal under
government auspices. .Men of both ik
litical parties favor such action. There
is an honest difference of opinion us to
how fur tlio government should go in
maintaining copartnership with a pri
vate corporation fertile purpose of build
ing tho canal, but in all probability a
way will be found to meet these objec
tlons ami to insure protection for the
capital which tho government may in
vest or plodgo.
Tho recent wnr scuro has boon of in
estimable value to tho pooplo of tlr?
