The report of the Isthmian Canal Commission, recording its decision in favor of an eighty-five foot level lock canal, was submitted to Secretary Taft last week. It is accompanied by the report of the Board of Advisory Engineers, the majority of whom declare for a sea-level canal. Secretary Taft will transmit the papers to the President with his recommendations. It appears that Rear Admiral Endicott, the naval member of the Commission, was the only one who differed with the others and favored a sea-level canal, as recommended by the majority of the Board of Consulting Engineers.
Members of the Rivers and Harbors Committee of the House of Representatives have agreed to report favorably on the Burton resolution, providing for a report to Congress by the United States member on the International Commission, on the necessary means of preventing a further reduction of the water supply at Niagara Falls. The resolution also directs the American members to co-operate with the Canadian members in preserving the Niagara Falls in their natural condition.
