Apropos of thCj Peace Conference.
"Washir.ffton. May 29. The London
Times this morning, according to a press
cal.Ie, publishes a Fpeeial article ex-
r'ainin? ail aspects of the Alaska
bDurUary dispute. It believf9 that Eng
land's case Is "Vfry f-trong" and that
"jhe has every interest in going to
erbitratlon prcv.ded the terms of refer
ence are s-atiFfactory," adding that
"those of Venezuelan precedent might
lairly be accepted on both sides." The
article speaks favorably of the com
promise plan for internationalizing the
wharf at Skagway and the White Pass
road as far as the Canadian frontier.
Apropos of this dispute a statement Is
made here that Is declared to be from
the test of authority of th? situation us
It stands today.
Proposal to Arbitrate I. Accepted.
hen infcommis-lun adjourned soma
months asjo it was because it had
reaf hed an apparently insurm ountable
ol-starle in the shape of the Alaskan
boundary question. After the adjourn
ment the two Kovernments took up this
particular question with a view to net
tling it. and thus removing It from the
path of the many other important is
sues involved. Negotiations pro;eeded
until a proposal was made from the
British side the main point of which
was that a sejarate tribunal of arbitra
tlon should pass on the boundary ques
tion. It was communicated to Ambas
en dor Choate and by him to the state
department, and there i little doubt
th:it it would have befn accepted: but
the president was absent and it was
laid over to await h!s return.
Canada Springr a Curious Scheme.
Just as it was about to be accepted
says the authority quoted. Canada im-
p s-d another condition. This condition
was that ir. any event Canada should
be given Pyramid harbor and a strip
of territory on the Lynn canal, without
reference to the general conclusions
reached by the tribunal of arbitration.
This condition caused not only surprise,
but some degree of indignation among
the officials here. After canvassing the
situation it was decided not to accept
this c.ncition. and a perempt. ry refusal
was pis en to the proposition. Thus the
' "aj s We Are "Taking It Eaiy.
Another cable from London says that
Cionrse W. Smailey, the New York cor
respondent of The Times, commenting
upon the "easy-going attitude" which
the Ameriran press takes regarding tbe
Canadian matter, contrasts these ex
pressions with these used at the time of
the Venezueiacispute, and says: ."There
could not be a more convincing proof
of the change in American sentiment.
There is no sisn of a disposition to take
& hostile view. It is assumed that Kng-
lHJid will ultimately do what is right,
and w ill not.sutTer the wishes of Canada
to outweigh her sense of justies."

Vm m twrmannt arbitration tribunal
fays: "No government or people" have
devoted themselves wMh greater ardor
to tne study or the tneory oi arbitration
than the government ar.d people of the
ITnlted States. The Americans not only
possess great lawyers, but are a com
munity in which krowlecge of legal
principles is more widespread than in
xx.y other. American jurists have done
much to mold tbe doctrines of Interna
tional law in the past: and in their
treatment of large questions they have
often displayed luminous insight, firm
grasp of fundamental principles and a
solid erudition not surpassed by the le
gal writers of any modern state."
The Hague. May 29. The newly ap
pointed sub-committee of the third
committee of the peace conference, the
arbitration committee, will meet today.
Jt will be known as the drafting com
mittee, indicating in its name the scope
of its functions. The delegates worked
I unceasingly yesterday, although the
forrr.aj labors or tne conference 'were
suspended. An effort is being made
and with a certain degree cf progress to
combine the Russian and British pro
posals in such a way that the report of
the drafting committee may secure the
support of both parties in the plenary
committer-. M. de Staal and. Sir Julian
Pauneefote. chiefs of the Russian and
British delegations respectively, and
other delegates had a long conference
yesterday with this end in view, and
there is no doubt that an agreement in
principle will be reached.
The hope cf the delegates that a per
manent arbitration board will be es
tablished Is rapidly improving. The dif
ficult points now relate to the composi
tion of the tribunal, how the representa
tion of the powers is to be arranged, and
the limitations to be placed upon the
Jurisdiction of the board.
Qnrrel Over Castelar's Fnnfril.
Madrid. May 29. When Fenor Cas
telar's body arrived at the station here
a dispute arose between the family of
the dead stateman and the government
representatives, the family protesting
against the wording of the decree order
ing that the expenses of the obsequies
be borne by the public, and re-fusir.g the
offer of the government to defray the
funeral expenses. Silvela replying dis
claims all intention of casting a reflec
tion upon the deceased by an allusion to
his "honorable poverty." On the con
trary he declares that he desired to pay
"a tribute to the high moral qualities
of a man who reached the highest posi
tions in the state and yet died poor."

Amazing Cleverness of Bird.
Thern is something very remarkable
in the almost reasoning powers mani
fested occasionally by birds in eluding
pursuit or in turning attention from
iheir nests and yonrcr, bnt in few is
this more noticeable than id the duck
tribes. In Captain Black's narrative of
his arctic land expedition the following
instance of this ia given:
One of bis companions, Mr. Kin?,
having shot a female dnck, fired again
and, as he thought, disabled its male
companion. Accordingly, leaving the
dead bird, which he had the mortifica
tion of seeing shoitly afterward carried
off by one of the white beaded eagles,
he waded into the water after the drake,
which, far from being fluttered or
alarmed, remained xuotionleiw, as if
waiting to be taken np. Still, as be
ueared it, it glided easily away through
innumerable little nooks and winding.
Several times he reached oat bis hand
to seize it, and, having at last with
great patience managed to coop it up
in corner, from which there appeared
to be no eocape, ho was "tiitimphantly
bending down to take it when, to hia
utter astonishment, it looked around at
him, cried "Qnack !" and then flew
away so strongly that he was con v in cod
he bad never bit it at alL Tbe bird's
object clearly was to draw the gunner
I away from its companion.

French President and Ex-President liar-
rtson Have a Friendly Chat.
Paris, May 29. Flormer President
Harrison. accompanied ly General
Horace Porter, United States ambas
sador. Saturday afternoon called upon
President Loubet. After a ceremonious
Introduction the former and the actual
president's dropped all formality and
conversed in the most friendly manner
upon topics of interest tq the two coun
tries, Loubet said he was especially p:eas?d
to meet Harrison, who was "doubly his
colleague, both being beads of sister
republics and both lawyers." He also
said he desired to congratulate Har
rison upon the mission with which he
had been entrusted and w hich had
brought him to Paris, and expressed
gratification that the Venezuelan com
mission had elected to meet in France.
Harrison replied in a similar vein.
The president ar.d ex-president then
drifted to the general subject of arbi
tration, Harrison expressing the view
that it was essential, in order to make
the use of arbitration general, that the
representative idea should be eliminated
from such tribunals. In order that
they should retain purely judicial char
acter every member of arbitration
tribunals should, he thought, be abso
lutely indifferent to the individual in
terests of the parties in litigation.
Ex-President Harrison and Mrs. Har
rison have accepted an invitation to the
parliamentary dinner to be given by
President Loubet on Monday nrst.
Pagodas as Sin Offeririrs.
Just as brewers and other evil men
in England conciliate heaven by erect-
iug churches so the bold, bad, bloody
handed Burmun makes it all right for
the next existence by erecting pagodas.
In proportion to the height of the pa
goda his heap of sin disappears. And as
the Buriuan, like tho rest of us, looks
after his own wants rather than those
of his ancestors, he builds a pagoda all
to hims-elf, anci allows his grandfather's
to topple over. An undo of tho deposed
king mnst havo boon round shouldered
with the weight of his wrongdoings.
Anyway, at tho foot of Mandalay
hill a nice, breezy eminence, ndmi-
rablo to give yon an appetite and a pain
in tho back he built 729 pagodas.
though tho guides count wrong and
eay there are only 450. But perhaps
they mention tho smaller number out
of regard for their monarch's uncle, not
wishing to expose the real magnitude
of his sinfulness. The pagodas are all
white and set out in rows, and under
each were what we pronounced to be
tombstones. Wo were wrong, for the
inscriptions were not to the dear de
parted, bnt constituted a complete copy
of tho law in the Pali tongue. Travel.
In the early days of Virginia, when
tho adventurers were mostly unmarried
men, it was deemed necessary to export
euch women as could be prevailed upon
to leave England as wives for the plant
ers. A letter accompanying one of the
matrimonial ships, dated London, Aug.
12, 1621, says:
"We send yon in tho ship a widow
and 1 1 maids as wives for tho people
of Virginia. There bath been especial
care taken in tho choice of them, for
there hath not one of them been receiv
ed but upon good recommendations.
There are 50 more that are ready to go.
For tho reimbursing of charges it is or
dered that every man that marries tbem
give 100 pounds of best leaf tobacco for
each of them."

The Southern Pacific ia about tho

The Southern Pacific has euch a plain
