Isthmian Canat Question Being
Settled John Bull Wants to
Tackle Boundaries.
Washington, Dec. 30.—It is expect
ed that efforts will be renewed before
long for the settlement of the numer
ous controversies which have long ex
isted between the United States and
Great Britain growing out of relations
along the Canadian border, the Atlan
tic fisheries, warships on the great
lakes, the Alaskan boundary, and other
qestions. Heretofore the negotiations
ftoui the thickets. A severe liand-to- designed to secure a fcttlenient of the
hand fight ensued. I
The following casualties occurred: A
Killed—Sergeant John P. Swisher,
Corporal James Gnughan, Privates
John Maren, Frank McAndrew, Joseph
A. Weippert and George Bedford.
Wounded—Captain SclioelTel. slightly
Corporal John IT. ^ussell and Privates
Daniel L. McPherson and George Clax
ton, severely Arthur lionnieastle,
slightly. One other killed, one wound
ed names later. The enemy was driv
en from the field and lost, severely."
tters recited have not proved effec-
tive, largely because of the cumber
some machinery of negotiation and
this has led to a belief that much more
could'be accomplished by direct nego
tiations between Secretary Hay and
Lord Pauneefotc on the main points,
aud the subsequent assembling of a
commission representing the United
States, Great Britain and Canada to
give form to the basis of agreement
tVimta to Tackle Alaska Next.
Now that the British government
has yielded the Clayton-Buhver treaty
and other points in the isthmian nego
tiatlon it desires to take up some'of
the other questions In which It has
important interests involved. Lord
Pauncefote desires to clear up all
pending differences and have a "clean
slate" before Ills present term as am
bassador comes to a close. When he,
entile'to Washington there were foiir
threat Issues between the two govern
ments. Tlietarst of these Wfts the.,
Bering jwa controversy, which had
readied an acute stage. Diplomacy
disposed of tills issue. The second is
sue was over Venezuela, which, like
the seal question, at one time threat
ened war. But the efforts of diplo*
macy were again successful in avert
ing trouble and bringing about a set
tlement. The third Important issue
was on the isthmian canal, which lias
been satisfactorily disposed of by. the
recent ITav-Pnuncefote trwitv.
recent Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
Only One IHHUO NOW Remain*.'
This leaves only one issue remaining
in order to bring about the "clean
slate," namely, the border controversy,
both as to Canada and Alaska. The
British officials usually link these var
ious boundary controversies together,
as they are more or less connected. At
present a modus vivendl exists as to
the Alaskan boundary, chiefly for the
purpose of avoiding a clash along the
border and holding each side in check
until a final boundary is determined
upou. It seems to be conceded on both
sides that the modus cannot be carried
on indefinitely, and that sooner or lat
er the main question of establishing a
permanent boundary must be settled.
Lord Lausdowne's desire to take up
the question was expressed clearly in
.his note to Secretary Hay last spring,
when the British government declined
to accept the senate amendment to the
first Hay-Pauncefote treaty, and he
has recently expressed a similar desire.
