most as gr-rat as anny that beset mo

RUSSIA IN THE PACIFIC
San Francisco, Nov. 20. "There are
now three transpacific steamer lines," said
Ocnilttll V. Evanosk, one of the Czar's
Siberian Commissioners, now at the P.v
l.icc Hotel, who Is homeward bound.
"In two years," he continued, "there
will be a fourth.n Russian steamer line
greater thin any of them. It means great
bjiness for America It really means
".lire lines, for there are three Russian
-its, the terminals of the trans Siberian
railway, which are to be connected by
steamship with the Pacific Coast. Port
Arthur Is the most southerly. Vladlvo
slock Is the middle one of the three, and
Nikolalfsk the most northerly, about
twenty five miles from the mouth of the
nmor River. It must be understood that
all the-e ports are to be connected by rail,
also that the trans Siberian Railway will
be finished In two years, thus placing St.
r'et'tsburg In direct connection with the
tH-w ports named and making one of the
shortest trips around the world by one of
the small circles of the northern hemisphere.
"The ralhoad has been comnleted fmm
l.kutsk to Serensk and beyond there In
two directions toward Peemvlcn nn.l th
moor River and across Manchuria to Via-
d.vostock. On this latter line one mil-
roid I-s to branch northward tn Nikolalfsk
and the other southward to Port Arthur.
The junction point of these three lines the
main and Its two branches Is Sungarl or
Chorbln. 1 he former Is the Chinese and
the latter the new Russian name for the
junction town. The northward runnlne
branch will not run directly to Nikolalfsk,
but to Chabaronsk, on the Amoor River,
and thence alone that river to the nnrt nf

"I can say but little of the steamship,
line, except the fact that It will lie estab
lished ns soon as the railroad Is finished. '
There will also be lines from Port Arthur
to Nagasaki and Shanghai, and from Via?
dlvostock tiv Naglsakl. Hakodate and To-
klo. The main line will ba to the Pacific
Coast, to San Franctsco, and possibly also
to Seattle and Portland, though It is still
too early to state the facts definitely. A
commission from St. Pitersbure has this
