The drya, on the other hand, ara not iltogetber a unit as to what ought to le done to s t r e n g t h e n tho law and some o- them M o u l d prefer to hear rom tbo National Commission before taking any action. From a political pojnt ot view the most disturbing ·jsue- a t present is prohibition for it cuts into both partie-s and if agitated luring tho lemainder of 19!0 as vehemently as it was recently, there- 1a a danger that other Issues in which tho Administration ia interested will not ifrcoivo duo attention.

It w o u l d not be surprising, however if by 3932 the National Commission's r c p o r . would be tho principal basis of attack on tbo whole problem of prohibition. The systematic way in whlel: the commission has tackled tho problem ol lavr enforcement as a vvhole is bound to offset the criticisms tha were made of individual mernbois Chaijman "Wickersham'-s suggebtior for instance, that tho states lent! greater coopei'ation in enforcement was considered a bold assertion las summer, but by the time the commission gts through with Us Intensivi stud/ there are likely to be furtho: suggestions implying a gi eater activ ity on the part of tho staitos which really possess tho police machinery o tho country.

J. Albert, topographical engineer, and the remaining portion by Captain William G. McNeil, aleo a topographical engineer The Baltimore Ohio Railroad now occupies a poitlon of this route from Cumberland, hut in aeeenrting tho mountain it diverges to the south, its summit being about eight miles, south of the summit oi tho canal route. During the next year a moro caiefu' and detailed survey wae made to determine tho route to be recommended as also to determine the data nerps eary to frame a general plan of this work, and a preparatory eetlinate o! Iho expense Tho re-port of this year (1826) was more complete than the former one, and discussed the character and general features of another route--that by th-e valley of Wille creek, leading northerly and easterly from Cumberland and crossing the mountains to tho valley of Flaugherty creek, which ·ornptie-s at Meyer'ri mill into Casselman river, n hranch of tho Youghlogheny river which It Joins at Turkoyfoot, near Confluence. After these surveys were completed and eetlmatee made of tho cost of the work, a company wavs chartered to build the proposed canal ami « convention was called to consider tha conditions controlling: the enterprise, at which a committee was appointed to i evtee the estimates of the Board of Internal Improvements, In 1828 Engt neere Roberta and Crugor made a location of the canal from Cumberland to Pitlsbiu-g. In 1S73, the livor and harbor bill passed by Congiets contained a clauee appropriating $6,000 to toe expended in an exploration of routes for the extension o£ the Chesapeake Ohio canal to tho river by the north and «outh branches of the Potomac I Ivor. The duty ot making thie exploration wab assigned to Colon-el "YV. K. Merrill, who put tho work in t h a i g p of Colonel Thomna S Sedgwick, un able and experienced engineer.
