Ottawa, (Out.), 22. In the Sen
ate today Sir Mackenzie Bowell,
leader of the opposition, asked for
I information concerning the Alaska
Mr. Scott for the Government,
replied that the most important
! reason why the Canadian Commis
sioners did not approve of the award
was that it was not a judicial deci
sion. Lord Alvcrstone had in the
first instance agreed that the center
of the Portland canal should form
the boundary line. The four is
lands should have gone to either
the one country or the other, de
pending upon the position of the
line through the Portland channel.
Subsequently Lord Alvcrstone de
flected the line so as to throw two
of the islands into the United States
and two into Canada, that is Wales
and Pearsc islands went to Canada
and the two smaller to the United
Sir Mackenzie Bowell said that
it was unfortunate that in every
case when negotiations have taken
place between the United States and
England, where Canada was affect
ed, the United States' diplomats
had succeeded iu securing islands
which command most important
I points of the Dominion. There was
(the island right opposite the harbor
of Port Arthur. In case of difficulty,
I he said, that island would have to
he secured by the British people,
1 for if fortified it would command
I the entrance of that harbor. Unless
that was done the United States
could secure it, and with the guns
they have at present, Would be able
1 to destroy the whole connection be
tween the east and the west. It
was the same with the island of Shu
Juan, another secured by treaty
"Now," said Sir Mackenzie, "the
United States will command Fort
Simpson. In every case Canadian
' interests were sacrificed."
! Senator McMulleu said that the
' decision would create as much dis
l satislaction 111 Canada as there was
in the Transvaal and in Ireland.
The Alaskan boundary corres
pondence was laid before the House
today. It consists of messages be
tween the the Colonial Office, Wash
ington and Ottawa. The corres
pondence shows that Canada agreed
to submit the question to jurists of
repute, and protested strongly when
Root, Lodge and Turner were ap
pointed by the United States.
The Colonial Office expressed its
regrets and urged the acceptance
of these gentlemen rather than the
breaking off of negotiations. Cham
berlain asced Canada's consent to
this, but apparently without wait
ing for that consent to be given, Sir
Michael Herbert for Great Britain,
and Mr. Hay for the United States
signed the treaty. There was noth
ing for Canada to do then but pro
test and agree. '
St. Johns (New Brunswick), Oc
tober 22. The Conservative news
papers in Eastern Canada say that
the Alaskan boundary nward will
become a live issue in the general
elections throughout the country.
Some of the papers declare that
Canadians are to blame for the de
cision unfavorable to Canada, and
they place the responsibility upon
the Government at Ottawa for per
mitting the boundary question to
be arbitrated, in view of what is
termed the nuti-Canadian make-up
of the commission. Little fault is
found with the United States for
that country's share in the negotia
tions, several of the Halifax and St.
John newspapers holding that the
United States is iu no way respon
sible for the present situation.
While most Liberal journals also
criticise the British Government,
the opposition press is assailing the
Government for accepting the com
mission as arbiter. The Conserva
tive organ iu this city, the Sun, at
tacks Sir Wilfrid Laurier.- The
talk of Canada becoming an inde
pendent country as the result of the
award is not regarded setiously
Halifax, (N. S.), Oct. 22. The
nress of this city comments on the
Alaskan boundary award as follows:
The Chronical says: "The Ameri
cans once more have routed us dip-
1 lomatieally, horse, foot ntfcl artillery.
J They have played succesHfully their
0ld game of bluff. We ha.ve nothing j
. .! . e . l . .1 TT..!.1 '
henceforth to fear from f.he United
States worse than another 'arbitra
tion', and we have already .suffered
nil that we cnu from arbitrations."
The Recorder says: "Canadian
interests have been sacrificed, and
this after Canada has sacrificed
blood and treasure iu defense of the
motherland. This marks n most
serious epocli in the relations 01
Canada and the mother country."
The Herald charges the Canadian
Government with neglect and fault
because the treaty of reference was
not submitted to the Canadian Par
liament for ratification.
Loudon, Oct. 22. Upon leaving
Liverpool today, A. B. Aylesworth,
one of the Canadian Commissioners
to the Alaskan boundary tribunal,
said in justification of his refusal to
sign the award: "It was more of
a compromise than a judicial deci
sion. Its effect will be that Do
minion goods traversing the disput
ed territory must pay high tariff
duties to the United States. The
Canadians feel so keenly on the
subject that, although there will be
no cry of separation, they probably
will demand a large power of self
government iu order to prevent a
repetition of such decisions."

Admiral Dewey says: "The
greatest source of strength in the
American navy is found iu the in
telligence of the men. The brains
are not confined to the officer.
Aside from the fact that our men
are the greatest fighters in the
world, they outrank in capability
of understanding and doing. This
means that whenever our ships are
put to the test they will win unless
the odds against them are over
whelming, for intelligence iu the.
crews never counted for as much as
it does today.
"The modern battle ship is a
great machine shop. To operate it
successfully the men who do the
work must have brains. They can
not be dull and win battles. I
kuow our men, and I know what
they can do. I am free to say that
if every officer on a United States
war ship should be killed in battle
the enlisted men could and would
take the ship and fight her to vic
tory. "Because of the great increase of
enlisted men, due to the rapidity
with which our navy has grown,
our target practice fell off a bit on
the whole, but it is improving now.
The improvement will continue un
til a satisfactory degree of efficiency
is attained, and that efficiency will
be maintained. Our men are nat
urally the best marksmen iu the
world. The navy is filling up with
young men from the west. They
are keen, quick to learn and in
tensely patriotic and are the best
raw material we ever had."

Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 24. Lou
Dillon, the peerless trotter, owned
byC. K. G. Billings, of Chicago,
and driven by Millard Sanders, this
afternoon proved her right to the
proud title df "queen of the turf"
by trotting a mile under adverse
conditions iu the remarkable time
of 1.58. The daughter of Sidney
Dillon was paced by a runner driven
by Scott McCoys and another runner
followed closely to urge the mare to
a supreme effort.
The track of the Memphis Driv
ing Club never showed to better
advantage. Sprinklers were cm
ployed throughout the day putting
on finishing touches, and when the
time for Lou Dillon's trial arrived,
the course was perfect. A strong
wind from the north swept down
the long back stretch, however,
and Judge Newton announced to
the spectators that too much should
not be expected of the game little
Lou Dillon appeared on the track
at 5:10 p. m., and after a prelimin
ary canter, Sanders announced he
was ready for the start. The two
runners were aligned in position,
and it was noticed that a strip of
board about one yard wide was
fastened to the pacemaker's sulky,
directly under the seat. This, it
was announced, was used to keep
the dust out of the mate's face.
At the first start, Sanders nodded
for the word, and the flag dropped.
After going an eighth of a mile,
Sanders yelled to McCoy to drive
faster, and it looked as if the mare
would catch the runner. Making
the first turn, the remarkable work
of Lou Dillon could be better seen I
by the thousands present, and like I
a piece of perfect machinery she '
reached the quarter pole in 30 sec
onds. The turn lor the back stretch
was now reached, and many ex
pected to see the champion falter
because of the wind. To the sur-'
prise of every one, Lou Dillon
seemed to travel faster, and when ,
the half mile was reached the timers
slate clicked out 59. A great
cheer arose, and many horsemen
predicted a new record was making. 1
On the far turn, McCoy was forced
to whip the runner to keep clear of
the trotting marvel, which wasi
pushing him closely. The three-,
quarter pole was passed in 1:28,
and the mare had turned for home.
The wind now was an anvantage '
rather than a detriment, and with
a superb burst of speed, Lou Dillon- j
urged on by the shouts of the
drivers of the runners, dashed under 1
the wire iu 1:58. j
When the time was flashed to I
the spectators, hats were thrown
high into the air and cheer followed
cheer. Sanders was literally lifted
from his sulky by an admiring
throng, while Mr. Billings was
showered with congratulations.
It was a noticeable fact that
watches of the three official timers
agreed to the fraction, and many
horsemen standing in the infield
caught the time as officially an
nounced to a fraction. The timers
were Bud Doyle, Fred Hartwell, of
Chicago and John Dickerson, of
