noticed Cully hanging about tho establish

1' o Question
of theinrif-dictinii of thn TTnWn.T Mn(o-
bverthi' Bohrinc- sea is discussed nt
great length in tho brief filed jestordajr
from tho British stnndpomt ns outlined,

to tho British minister here. In sub
stance it is urged thnt if Russia evar
had jurisdiction over theso waters be
yond tho Marine league, not conceding:
at all that she had, it was not by virtue
of her posoessions in the Aleutian
islands and Alaska, but by tho general
consent of other nntious. Then the
treaty between Russia nud tho United"
States is quoted from to prove that tmv
only cession Russia made to tho United
States wns of the territory of Alaska
nnd tho Alontinn islands, and "tho
waters adjacent thereto." Argument is.
made to prove thnt the wnters adjacent
thereto nro and could be only thosa
waters within tho Murine league from,
the shores. It is claimed that the lan
guago of the treaty clearly indicated
On Theno Point
the brief says: "Tho proceeding how
sought to be prohibited is nn nttempted

it most necessarily nppear that tho act
