Never before nor since then have the*? northern waters been the scene of civilized warfare In the event of war between Russia and Japan, however, it is at least probable that the war will cause more or less commotion upon the Alaskan seas. Ac cording to rough measurement on a globe chart, as indicated by the scale, the southwestern end of the Aleutian archipelago is only about TOO miles from the coast of Kamchatka and but little further to the Kurile islands. A line of Russian steamers make a monthly and fortnightly run, accord ing to the season, from Vladivostok to PetropoUk, the capital of Ktmchatka. taking in the west coast of the penin sula. The Japanese would undoubtedly stop these steamers unless convoyed, and in the latter event a battle would likely occur in the vicinity of Ameri can waters, with the probability of the weaker party seeking asylum In an Alaskan port. There would be cruis ing after the pelagic sealers of the ene my by the lesser warships of both pow ers. Whether drawn into the war or not, it is likely that the United States would prepare for contingencies by the imme diate and thorough equipment of the proposed naval station at Dutch Har bor and a holding in readiness of bat tleships at that point. Should the United States, bv reason of resenting the closing of Mongolian ports by Russia, or for any other cause, be drawn into the war, it is hardly likely that during the continuance of hostilities the American s eamship companies would risk their boats upon the Nome run. Northern Alaskan traffic would be pr.?'yzea. The likelihood f war has lesseaei but if it comef Alaska will play at least a supernumerary part in it and perhaps an Impo-tant role.
