telegraphed the details to Constantino

however, reached him. That his policy
of non-interference was approved at the

Iain, which was handed to him on the
eve of his depart tiro after his dismissal
from the governorship on the demand
of the I'nlted States. The telegram
follows:
"Your excellency's fidelity being well

London, Oct. 19. The Alaska bound
ary commission Saturday reached an
agreement whereby all the American
contentions urc sustained with the ex
ception of those In relation to the Port
land canal, which Canada wins. All
that now remains lo be done is for the
commissioners to affix their signatures
to the decision and complete the map
which will accompany It. On the map
will be marked the boundary line defi
nitely fixing the division of American
and ilrltlsh territory on such a basin
that no American citizen will lose a
foot of land he already believed ho
held, while the t'nlted States will get
all the waterways to the rich Alaskan
territory with the exception of the
Portland eannl, which gives Canada the
one outlet she so much needed.
The long-standing dispute was only
settled after a week of keen, trying,
secret deliberations between the arbi
trators. Hven up to noon Saturday
there was an acute possibility that a
disagreement might result nntf the
whole proceedings fall to the ground.
Lord Alverstone, though openly In
clined to believe In the Justice of the
American argument, that the United
States was entitled to the heads ol
Inlets as contained In question !, held
out that Canada had established her
rase In questions - and ii, dealing with
the Portland canal.
After luncheon Senator ldgc, Sec
retary Hoot and Senator Turner agreed
to cede those points anil to start the
American boundary line from the head
of the Portland canal, thus giving the
Canadians that channel and some small
islands on which tlicrij are only a few
disused storehouses. This accom
plished, the majority of the tribunal
agreed lo tlx, with this exception, th
entire Ixmndary as outlined in th
American case.
lly this afternoon It. Is hoped that
everything will be ready for signature
though the actual marking of the line
on the map which shall forever deter
mine the respective territories will oc
cupy some time.
