There are F00 woodsmen in the
camps of the company, but as a meas

cording to William Coyne, assistant to
President Shields, will not allow them
to come In until today, when all of the
310 troops en route will have arrived.
Although they are said by Coyne to be
well provided with food, and to have
been given good sleeping quarters, the

has caused them to protest against be

in a demonstration similar to which
occurred here, but not so serious.
Crew Had to Fly for Life.
The men, Coyne says, became angry
when told they would be held at the
station over night, and began to throw
stones at the engine crew. The fussil
lade of missiles became so heavy that
to escape with their lives the crew,
under pretense of switching the train,
after an engine and two coaches had
iK'en uncoupled, started down the main
track on the Algoma Central road,
leaving the foreigners behind. Some
of them, unwilling to stay there, have
walked to the Soo.

Inns who had taken the obligations of

attitude In this matter has been mis
understood, if not misrepresented. The
Typographical union has not been con
demned in thLs diocese, nor have its
members been refused the "sacraments.
"A reporter came to my residence re
cently, showed me a newspaier clip
ping containing an oath said to have
been taken by the members of the
Typographical union, and asked my
opinion regarding It. I told him, in
substance, that the oath, in its natural
and obvious sense, could not be law
fully taken by any Catholic. That
was my whole action in the matter.
My opinion regarding the wording of
the obligation is unchanged."

OUR CASE IS " UNSHAKABLE '
British Counselor Makes His Argu

Taylor Now Talking.
London, Sept. 30. According to
present expectations Dickinson will
conclude the T'nited States argument
before the Alaska loundary tribunal
next week. He is prewiring a long
speech which he thinks has been ren
dered necessary by the elaborate char
acter of the case presented by the Brit-
liOED JUSTICE AT.VXBSTONK.
Ish lawyers. John W. I'osTr,
American counsel, said: "We hope to
escape from London ahead of the No

"Thus far, in the opinion of the
American lawyers, the United States
IK)siticn is unshakable, as regards all
the British considerations involved.
The Uritish made a somewhat heavy
assault on the American ontention
with reference to the projer course of

Uritish Counsel In the Alaskan lloundary
Cane Too Weak to Stand.
When the Alaskan boundary com
mission resumed its sessions, Chris
topher Robinson, K. C, who suffered
from severe indisposition, but who had
benefited, by the night's rest, resumed
his speech in behalf of the Canadian
claims, though at the suggestion of
Chief Justice Alverstone, counsel re
mained seated. Itohinson dealt vigor
ously with the fallibility of the maps
of the district under contention, assert
ing that the United States deductions
therefrom were therefore weak.
Robinson continued his speech after
the luncheon adjournment. Ridiculing
the United States contention that It
had secured the allegiance of the Alas
ka natives, he said: "With a bottle of
whisky and a blanket you can obtaia
the allegiance of any Indian."
Replying to Lord Alverstone's query
as to whether counsel could prove that
the coast mentioned in article 7 re
ferred exclusively to the strip which
Russia was to obtain by. the treaty.
Robinson, maintained that article 7
meant reciprocal privileges in the strip,
implying Great -Britain's jurisdiction
over certain inland waters and not
south of latitude 54.40. as the United
States contends. Counsel argued that
Russia had not the. right to grant priv
ileges south of .latitude 54.4.
Hannis Taylor, formcr United State
minister to Spain, of counsel for the
United States, followed Robinson. Tay
lor will continue his argument today.
EDDIE HANL0N GETS
DECISION OVER YANGER
San Francisco. Sept. ::(). laddie
Hanlon, of this city, received the de
cision over Benny. Yanger,' of Chica
go, after 0 rounds of furious fight
ing last night.
It was a hard fought battle, in
which Hanlon for the first time
abandoned his crouch. In the begin
ning of the sixth round he stood up
and fought without his crouch.
Prior to that and up to the ninth
Yanger had somewhat the better of
it on points. He reached I (union time
and again without a return and Han
lon, on coining in, punished the
"slasher" severely' with " his right.
From this time to the 16th Hanlon
held his own. In this round he
knocked Yanger down and seemed to
have him at his mercy. By hanging
on, however, Y'anger lasted through
the round, although Hanlon tried des
perately to land a knockout punch.
In the last minute of the 20th round
Yanger was again floored and it look
ed js if it was a knockout when the
call of time saved him. Yanger fought
with the greatest gameness and prov
ed much the cleverer of the two.

through which it passed, with 8,000
men in line, not to mention the fair
women who filled some of the 110
floats, the second spectacular feature
the parade of the Chicago centen
nial came off to the satisfaction of
those who managed this number of
the programme, and to the great de
light of those who waited for hours
packed like cardines in a box its
appearance. There was no dearth of
bands, notwithstanding the determina
tion of the union musicians, to have
nothing to do with the matter because
the United States Marine baud had
been engaged for another and separate
feature of the festival.
Course of the Parinle.
The parade marched from Michigan
avenue and Harrison street, north In
Michigan avenue to Jackson toid

I.Ike the Indiana.
The parade, as stated in the foie
going, dre wthe whole town, for four
or five hours, but for steady drawing
there is "nothing doiug" here like the
Indian camp. From 7 a. m. to along
in the afternoon the street car lines un
loaded tens of thousands at Lincoln
park, all with the same point in view
the Indian camp. The visitors were
admitted into the enclosure three times
during the day. Every feathered brave
was surrounded by school boys who
whooped it up in a way that gave the
forest visitors a lesson in yelling. The
women and girls In the pushing crowd
were attracted to the quaws and pa
pooses, and the little ones submitted
to ehuckiugs in the chin with true
Indian stolidity. They likewise reaped
a harvest of peonies and nickels.
The lodge where bead work and lit
tle canoes are sold had so many clamor
ing customers that the stock in trade
was nearly exhausted before the morn
lug was over. There was nothing
sacred from the curiosity of the vis
itors. No detail of Indian toilet mak
ing is now a secret from scores of
whites. The closing of tepee flats was
no bar to the inquisitive. They raistd
the corners of the canvas and poked
peep holes In the rush sides of wig
wams. They aw braves decking them
selves with war paint and feathers,
and watched the squaws getting the
tiny papooses into buckskin swaddling
Finally the red men and women had
enough of the thing, and the police
drove everybody out and cleared the
field for the dancers. The green corn
dances, the scalp dances and the buf
falo dances of Monday were repeated.
