Irays pi-ce of property, acconlinK to a
bu.Hiiivs alai.-. the purchaser usually en
tails a lawsuit, but when the United
States bought Alaska from the emperor of
RuKKia in 17 it also accumulated in em
bryo two lively quarrels. At that time the
possihility of controversy was probably not
suspected, but it has since developed in
most marked manner. .Tnst now the two
are engajdnK the attention of the govern-
"Btw" disabilities and the rules or evidence
governing the same. Friday evening there
was sent to Secretary Noble a printed copy
of a supplemental decision in this case.
This supplemental decision, which was un
signed, contained language, particularly in
the heading and brief syllabus, which the
secretary regarded as entirely uncalled for,
and extremely partisan in character.
The I'ncalletl for Language.
The syllabus referred to read as follows:
The arbitrary rule of the Cleveland ad
ministration in adjudicating claims, liased
niKn alleged 'new"' disabilities, overruled
bv the Harrison administration in the in
terest of meritorious applicants. The old
doctrine of estoppel in pension claims set
aside by the present administration." The
secretary at ouce rewrote the decision.elim
nuting therefrom the objectionable lan
guage. Fired" the Oft'emling Man.
Saturday morning the secretary made in
quiries as to the author of the unsigned ue-
ei.ilon, which resulted in the prompt dis
missal of George llaJier, a im-mler of tha
lxni of pension appeals in the office of
Asist:nt Secretary Hussey. lki)er says
the language was not objectionable, and
that it was read ami approved by Bussey.

Ai;? of Course They Cannot. J
The controversy has lien-n going on with,
more or less force between the two govern- j
merits for several years, and has now 'm
reached a stage where each has appointed a J
commissioner to confer together on the '
subject and see if they cannot agree upon a
line. The British commissioner is the '
chief astronomer of the IJoyal college of
Canada: for the United States Professor
IVIandenhall. superintendent of the coast
and geological survey, has leen named by ,
the president. They will meet in Montreal, '
probably next month, but it is not thought
they will reaclia joint satisfactory conclu
sion. feseription of the lionnriary.
The line in dispute was laid down origi
nally in the treaty between Russia and
Great Britain executed in lSii, and is there
described as follows: '"Commencing from
the southernmost point of the island called
Prince of Wales island, which point lies in
the paralled of 54 degrees, 40 minutes

paralled to the coast," etc j
A Point That Is Fnderstood. I
"With reference to the line of demarca- ;
tion laid down in the preceding article, it is
understood that whenever the
ftnmmit of the monntains which extend in j
a direction parallel to the coast from the ,
fifty-sixth degree of north latitude to the
point of intersection of the 141st degree of ,
west longitude, shall prove to be at the dis- j
tance of more than ten marine leagues from
the ocean, the limit between the British I
possessions and the line of coast which is to
lielong to Russia as above mentioned (that
is to say, the limit to the possessions ceded
by this convention), shall be formed by a
line parallel to the winding of the coast,
and which shall never exceed the distance
of ten marine leagues therefrom."
- The Ieflnltlon of "Coast" In Dispute.
At that time the interior of the country
was hut little known; hence the insertion
of the alternative line "ten marine leagues
from the coast." Better acquaintance with
the territory hasT" develop J the fact that
the supposed range of mountains parallel
to the coast does not exist, so the other
line must be established. There will not
be much difficulty in locating the line after
the meaning of the word "coast" has been
agreed upon. Herein lies the only prob- i
able important point of difference. The
British officials, it is understood, will as
sert that what is meant is the outside line

Washington, Oct. IX W. J. Ister,aa
inspector who has charge of prosecutions
for violations of the alien contract lalor

ury that from July U, 1"?1, to Sept 30, lMni,
judgments in favor of the United States

judgments against the United States were
rendered in ten cases, and six cast's were
either discontinued or compromised, leav

Washington, Oct. 10. The presidential
election occurs one month from Saturday

of the fringe of islands skirting the coast; night. She passed a fairly comfortable day
and to support the conteutioh will allege
that Portland channel was named in the '
treaty by mistake;'tliat what was meant
was another arm of the sea some miles to '
' Claims of the Contestants.
Portland channel, or canal, as it is known,
by the way, isn't a canal nt all, but an arm
of the sea, narrow and well defined, some
what resembling a canal. Another point
made by the British officials is that Port
land canal does not extend to the 53th de
gree of north latitude, and therefore it
could not have been meant. On the other
hand, the United States commissioner will
contend that the "coast" line means -the
mainland, not that of the outlying islands.
As to Portland canal he will assert that at
the time of the treaty the canal was be
lieved to extend as high as 50 negrees by
both parties, and was used advisedly.
If Twere Well Done 'Twere Done Quickly.
Professor Mendenhali, speaking of this
matter, says: "The boundary question
ought to be settled soon. It can be done
now without much controversy, for the ter
ritory involved is not known to be valuable.
There are reports of good mineral finds, but
they are not wholly verified. If they should
turn out to be true, of course the settlement
will be that much more difficult to make.
"We could have agreed with England about
the seals in two minutes a quarter of a
century ago; now several years are required
to reach a . settlement." The "coast line"
difficulty is important, for if the string of
islands is the line there is no territory left
for the United States on the mainland
worth contending for.

The Mariner's Greatest Knemy.
The Premier h-ft Whatcom for Seattle nt
noon and was three hours late. The Willa
mette had loaded for San Fnmisoo and left
at noon. The fog was very ,o;';SO and lxth
ships complied with regulations requiring
whistles to le blown every half minute.
The Premier was ten mi!- this side of
Port Townsend when the whistle of the big
collier-was heard. Their warning signals
were sounded regularly as the lxmts ap
proached hach other. There is at least one
mile sea room at this place.
I'ouikI Where They Were Too Ijte.
Both captains say they thought the other
vessel was taking the opposite side of the
sound, as in the dense, heavy air the
whistles sounded faintly. Suddenly, as the
Premier rounde l Mutiny hay, where the
bluff reverberated the signals, the boats
found they were close upon each other, and
the next minute the captain and pilot of
the Premier saw the huge form of tie
c .i'ier less than a Ijoat's length away, com"
ing head on. The engines of both ships
were stopped and the wheels swung hard
aport, but it was too late to avert a colli
sion. Knocked His Head Clean Off.
The Willamette's liow struck the Premier
on the iort side at the companion way just
opimsite the pilot house, crashing through
into the smoking room where over twenty
men were seated about the whist tables.
The prow of the collier passed through the
room like a knife, and entered the main
cabin Wyond. splintering the whole side of
the ship. Johannes Moe was struck by a
flying tiniler just as the bow of the collier
came through the hull of the Premier, and
his head was knocked flat against the other
wall twenty feet away, where it was after
ward found among the debris. John Ran
kin, a waiter on the Premier, was standing
in the door of the smoking room, and was
pinioned ln-tween the Kiw of the invading
ship and the timber, his IkxIv being horribly
Saw His Hoy Meet Death.
Frank Wynkoop, 13 years old, was stand

of his father, who was Itadly bruid trying
to reach out ior him. How William Rich
ardson was ki'led is unknown.
How Sinking Was Averted.
The Willamette' then steamed ahead,
carrying the wrecked steamer with her
across to Bush Point, where lxth were
beached in twenty-four f-et of water. The
tug Goliath, passing with a lumber schoon

the two vessels, but they were firmly
