    Reports that in France, amidst 'the miasma of recent scandals' and 'the malaria of Panama' where many labourers working on the canal have perished, 'Severe sentences of fine and imprisonment have been passed upon the De Lessepses, M. Eiffel, and others for their share in the colossal swindling, but the net effect, so far, has not been to weaken the feeling of sympathy for the old Lesseps, the hero engineer of this epoch' (244).
