"Waste Not, Want Not."
VudcrstnndliiE Between that nation
Seattle, January 9. Dr. L.
W. Hoonock, chief ongineor of
tbo IrkutBk and Vlf(livostook divi
sion o Russia's groat strategic
railroad, said tonight that feeders
would bo built from the main lino,
one on an understanding with tho
Porsian Government to Herat, au
ditor into Afghanistan over tho
Thibot mountains, and a third in
to Boloochistan, botwoon Afghan
istan arid Persia. This will bring
Russia into tho contor of tho Asi
atic powers and right at tho doors
"You will, porhaps, be interest
ed to know," said tho doctor, "that
tho Russian Government ia build
ing sovoral merchantmen to ply
botwoon Vladivostock and some
port in Alnska. Wo aro now
building three of thorn at Vladivos
tock and three more aro to bo
built at Cronstadt. They will all
bo finished withiu a yoar or bo.
It is not decided which port wo
will go to; porhaps ono will bo
made, for tho United States isto
build a railroad to some point
north of Alaska, and whorovor it
makes its terminus thoro wo shall
mako our port."
"But that is simply a proposi
tion, isn't it, to run a railroad
across tho islands of Bohriug sea
to connect with a Russian rail
"No, it is not simply a pro
position, but a part of the grand
strategic plan, and it is being
carried out by nn understanding
between tho two countries. Tho
United Slates will build a lino
north of Sitka, cross the Bohring
sea islands as far as practicable,
and from that point connect with
those ships Russia is building,
making tho journoy from Alaska
to Vladivostock m twenty-four
hours. This will bring tho two
countries very near together, and,
being old friends, as they aro,
thoro might bo an alliance some
day against our old enemy, Eng
land. At lonst, I hopo so. But I
don't know; and, as I before re
marked, I don't talk politics."
