Aftw detaiiing the Canadian Siea. - tbe aDd cross thi j of lnleta .e, trom hui. land to headland without following the sinuovaUea of these arms of the sea, Senator Mills mad ttita statement: "Just why he Americans reruaed to arbttmite or to compromise except on ooradittons impossible to us i shown in th traaRy of IKE.

By article 10, tie British and Russian vessels navigat. ing the Pacific ocean. If compelled by storm or accident, were allowed to take snWler to the ports of the respective par ties and were at liberty to refit there. "Now Is tt not too dear to admit of Question that dhe contracting parties assured that under tib provision of this treaty there were porta and estuarks ailong the coast that were under the sovereignty of each? Yt of the United States contention te correct, there were no ports and waters remaining to Great Britain, "As a matter of fact, if tfli treaty Is toJoved. the Lynn canal wHl be found to be entirely within Canadian terrtto.-y. This point "Was made In the commission. Of that Canada would have won. Thait Is why there Is no ar. bttraUon." Sir Charles Tupper said: The situation ts this; In a treaty made between Great Britain and Rus sia In 1N5. th boundary between the Russian possessions and ithe British pos. 9tons -was defined.

"This subject has acquired additional tropomaaoa owing U Ih dtaKOvery of gold la th Canadian Yukon otrrltory. All that Canada aslat-aU that ethv has ever asked (a that tt the United 0ta and Great Britain are not agreed upon the amoing of the treaty providing for oh del 1m ma; ion of th boundary, th matter should be dealt wttb as all mat. ters of a similar tmaraoter are dealt with, by the anpotnttnem of an inter. national commissi m to seule the question Just as the boundary between Venex. uuela, ant British Guiatsa la being se Ut-d ui&iy la Parla "Canada priposed in the commis.iloo chat In reference to soch a board of ' experts, the reference sbouid be in such express terms as oe Veneiuelan tnatur as prjjnred and accepted by Great Britain.

"I hive arrived at the conclusion that as' under existing regulations these eve. nues to the Canadian Yukon are in th possesion ot th United States, and tba as from the lt atap, ft is evident th Urrf.tJ States has no confidenoe in the r-suJt of an arbitrament, that country baa deter nlned thai there stuU ba co iKtHeinent of the question and ttu: it hall enjoy tbe position fbat the absenc at th demarki:ion of th boundary gives .

In the same llre.'ttn I recommenxl that snotiMr act shall be passeil adoptltig il.o mining laws o! the United States to suxth an extent as win prevent any but British subjects procuring mining lease or being able to carry on mining in the Canadian Yukon. These laws should contain a clause whereby they would only oome Into operation by a British lroo!anation by the governor general In council.
