Tho estimated cost of the TaRu
railroad from the terminal ground on
Taku Inlet to the International bound
ary line, a distance of approximately
24 miles is $634,100, according to the
report of F. J. Wettrlck, of tho firm
of Wettrlck & Wllhelm. the well
known engineers who made the sur

lows: Clearing, $30,000; steel. $160.
000; ties. $36,000; ballasting and grub
bing. $80,500; engineering. $33,000.
The cost of construction will average
$26,500 per mile.

road from a point on Taku Inlet to
the International boundary line that
Is designed to connect with another

the most expensive, but nearly the
entire distance Is through the valley
of Taku river and practically level.

"Alaska is a great country, and has
a great future," said Father J. H.
Gleeson on the eve of his departure
i for the States, "and our church will
grow with the development of the
country," he continued. "We already
have many people here and more are
continually coming. My visit here
has no special significance beyond a
desire to get as much information
first hand as possible In a briof time.
Plans for the future are not yet far
advanced to speak about, but we hope
that the scope and influence of our
church will grow.
l m? is a wuuuuuui ?a
fascinating country and I am not sur
prised that you all love it. I have en
joyed every moment of the time spent
in Juneau and Douglas. The people
are most kind and hospitable and the
scenic beauty of the country Is be
yond comparison. The wealth of na
tural resources insures a grand fu
ture. It will perhaps be more than a
year before I get up here again, but
I nm looking forward to It."
Father Gleeson is Provincial, of the
Jesuit order of the Catholic church
for the Province of California, which
Includes five of the Pacific Northwest
States and Alaska. He has only been
Inducted into hio present office a few
months and this is his first visit to
Alaska. He took passage on the Mari
posa last night for the States.

WASHINGTON, July 13?Secretary
of State William J. Bryan this morn
ing Issued a statement defending the
proposed treaty to settle the differ
ences between the United States and
Colombia over the separation of Pan
ama from that country. He said in
the course of the statement that it Is
necessary only to discuss the fact that
an estrangement exists, and that this
government having refused to arbi
trate the differences takes upon itself
the responsibility of doing justice to
Colombia. In case of doubt as to
the amount of the damages he said
that we must resolve the doubt against
ourselves and in favor of Colombia.
James T. Du Bole, who was connect
ed with the State Department during
the Roosevelt administration and was
minister to Colombia during the Taft
administration, recently issued a state
ment in defense of the treaty between
the United States and Colombia which
Is pending in the United States Sen
ate. Among other things, Mr. Du
"I was in the Department of State ,
in 1903 when the press announced |
that the mailed hand of the United ?
States had stopped Colombian soldiers |
from suppressing a revolution on the ^
Isthmus of Panama. Amazed at this c
enterprise I said to those present: t
'This, if true, is a shocking Injustice i
to Colombia and the United States t
must pay dearly for it in the end.' a
"Three years ago, when I was a3ked c
to go to Bogota as Minister, I frank- g
ly stated my sincere sympathies for o
Colombia and was informed that r
friendl' relations with that country
were desired by the United States, /
and that my sympathies were no bar
to my mission.
"An impartial investigation at Bo
gota, running over a period of two
years, confirmed my sympathies, and (
convinced me that, instead of 'black- ,
mailers' and 'bandits,' the public men (
of Colombia compare well with the L
public men of other countries in in- t
telllgence and respectability, while (
the social life is as refined and cul
tured as can be found In any capital
In the world. Bogota Is called the
Athens of South America. .
"Impressed by tho humiliation and J
sufferings that had befallen Colombia j1
by the act of 1903, I have worked un- J
selfishly for the true interests of- tho
United States In Latin America by
trying to secure a settlement of our
unfortunate differences on a broad and 1
lust basis, and the new treaty will
accomplish that result. I deeply re
gret the antagonism to It displayed
n certain quarters, and I deplore Col.
Roosevelt's bitter and misleading at- ll
tack embodied in his recent public n
"He says: 'The people of Panama r
were a unit In demanding the revo- v
lution.' I say, and can prove It, that
1 handful of men, who were to be n
the direct beneficiaries of the revolu
tion, conceived it, and not the hun- .
ilredth part of the Inhabitants of the *
isthmus knew of the revolt until an
American officer, in the uniform of the
United States army, raised the flag
of the new republic.
" 'We never flred a shot at any Co
lombian,' says Col. Roosevelt. True,
but the execution of the orders of
President Roosevelt to the American
warship was an act of war, and if
the Colombian soldiers had attempted
to suppress the conspiracy they would
have been captured, or driven into the
Bea, or killed, because that is the way ]
our brave marines have of doing things
when they are let 'loose.'
"The time is not distant when Latin
America will have a hundred million
of people, Inspired by new conditions e
of nntlonal and commercial life. Those \
now living feel that the Panama in- j
cident is the only real injustice com- r
mitted by the United States against t
the Latin-American people. The treaty \
will correct that feeling and greatly
change the sentiment that is now run- ?
ning heavily against us in all South
America, and place this country and
Colombia upon that friendly footing
so greatly desired by the people of
both nations. *
"If any person believes It Is pleas- '
ant for me to oppose a great leader f
whose fortunes I devotedly followed (
for ten years, and for whom I have *
profound esteem, he Is radically mis- <
taken. I am a Republican and have
been all my life, and I have been urg- >
ed not to make this statement public,
because a successful issue of the
treaty will help the Wilson Adminis
"I do not care to live to greet that ,
day where my love of party smothers ,
my love of Justice and halts my cour
age in doing what I believe is right ,
for the true interests of my country.'"
