ALA8KA IIOUNDARY LINE.
Work on the Yukon to Determine It
Exactly.-Hardships Met Along
By the flashing of telegraphic sig
nals from Fort Egbert, Alaska, and
from Vancouver, Canada, the exact
boundary line between the United
States and Canada at the Yukon river
has recently been determined, says a
Washington correspondent of the
New York Tribune. A shaft of granite
will be reared at the point agreed up
on by the observers, and with this ai
a basis the long boundary stretch on
the 141st meridian in the wild and
unexplored country from the arctic
ocean southward to the St. Elias
mountains will be marked out at some
The signalling at the boundary line
was done within the last few days and
has been reported to the United States
coast and geodetic survey in Washing
ton by Professor Edwin Smith, the
American agent designated by the
joint boundary commission to repres
ent the United States. Fort Egbert
and Vancouver were selected as the
two points from which to send the
message because their longitude Is
known accurately and Fort Egbert is
the nearest telegraph station to the
Yukon boundary line, which is about
six miles distant. A telegraph wire
was run to the approximate boundary
station and an agent stationed there.
The three commissioners waited until
there was clear weather at all three
The problem involved was to deter
mine the exact point at which the
341st merilian crosses the Yukon, and
the scientific iiethold of doing this is
to enimate the precise time at whi-h

agent at Fort Egbert did likewise. The
boundary line man therefore got mes
sages from hollh sides and was able to
use these as the basis of calculation,
allowing time for the transmission of
the messages. Tle signals were repeat
ed for several nights for greater ae
curney. When tho figures are comn
pleted o1cilly he result will lie an
