f i. 1. ; 1.. -... i.A
scucme, which involves u iuiuu ul
ueath the waters that separate the
Siberian and Alaskan shores, was
in n most sanguine mood when
seen yesterday in his apartments at
the Palace. Other than in a general
way he had little to add to what
was told iu yesterday's Call of his
1 great project, which, in fact, has as
its most enterprising and interest
ing feature the proposed tunnel
under the Straits of Bering, a dis
tance of thirty-seven miles, which
I he does not regard as a very diffi
cult task or one that will involve a
period of labor of more than two
It is mainly to the ingenuity of
American engineers that De Iobel
looks for the solution of the problem
as to which will be the best means
of carrying out his plans in so far
as they apply to the Bering Straits
portion of his undertaking. The
American, he argues, is capable of
accomplishing the work which may
have been pleased to refer to as a
difficult feat, but which he regards
as being no more diffcult that the
construction of a great tunnel be
neath the channel from Dover to
Calais, a proposition which has been
pronounced perfectly feasible.
In discussing this subject yester
day De I,obel said:
. We propose to have a large and
airy tunnel, poss bly two and, if
necessary three. The distance to
undei mine is thirty-seven miles and
we have thoroughly acquainted our
selves with the condition of the bot
tom of the waters under which we
intend to operate. It is of a granite
formation and iiist the sort that
will best serve our purposes, in that
It will be a safeguard against leak
age and most formidable in resist
ing the great pressure that will have
to be contented with. The larger
of the two Diomcde islands will be
used probably for a compressed air
station and repair shops. We have
taken soundings of the entire
breadth of the stjaits and find that
the average depth of the water is
150 feet. With these facts before
us, our engineers have estimated
that it will cost in the neighbor
hood of '$65,000,000 to build the
tunnels and their connections.
Referring to his maps, De l,obel
showed where it was purposed to
enter into traffic arrangements with
the- transcontinental lines of the
United States for the transportation
' of passengers across the country
j from New York to San Francisco
and the northward to Seattle, from
whence his own company will build
still further northward to Bering
Straits, by way of Juneau, penetrat
ing the various rich mineral dis
tricts of the northern possession,
which he figures will in ten years'
time be thickly populated and be
yielding enormous quantities of tin,
gold, copper and other metals and
eventually developing into one of
the greatest agricultural places in
the world. From the eastern term
inus of the Trans-Siberian road at
Irkootsk, on the one side, to the
coast, northward at a point directly
opposite the point on the Alaskan
shore where the tunnel is to begin,
the company in which De Lobel is
interested purposes to also build a
road and he says that an under
standing has already been had with
the Russian officials that the Sibe
rian road will be joined in the all
rail project, with a view of develop

In Russia, where the principle of

proved by the Minister of Finance
and his guaranty of ample conces

the greatest of men of finance of

now is to co-operation of American

We hope to have an American

by which time our report, now on
its way to St. Petersburg, will have
been passed upon by the Czar's
officials and as soon as the Russian
Government gives the word, the
companies organized in Etiropi will
be merged into the American corpo
ration and the directors of the latter,
representing the capital of all the
countries that contribute, will be
asked to select a man of the United
States to accept the presidecy of the
concern. It has been our under

that the work should be undertaken
by an American company and that

De Lobel declares that the people
of the world will be afforded an all
rail route from New York to Paris,
a distaiice that will be traversed in
the most comfortable and modern
trains inside of seventeen days. De.
Iobel says the development of the
Territory of Alaska will in the end
repay the amount expended in the
construction of the Trans-Alaskan-Siberiau
Railway and bring to its
builders an enormous revenue from
the sale of the lands for mineral
and agricultural purposes.
Mark of the Poker Player.
"That man is a poker player,"
said the elevated road ticket seller
after he had pushed a bit of paste
board through the window to a
hurried man carrying a suit case.'
1 "There's a great deal to be learned
from the way a passenger lays
down his fair. Take that chap who
just dropped this ticket into the
chopper's box. He paid for one
ticket with a quarter, getting four
nickels in change. The thing that
gave him away was the way he
laid down his coin. The average
man slaps liisjiickle down and lets
it lie. This man held his nickle
curved in the first joint of his finger
and tossed it gently toward me
across the counter with 'reverse
English tUe trick of the poker
player who can flip a coin upon the
table and make it settle to the frac
tion of an inch. He didn't take
the nickel that way intentionally.
It's simply a habit." New York
