By following the winding of the coast at Lynn Canal, these Unes as will readily be seen, throw the whole of the Lynn Canal wall Inside the ter rltory of the United State. The Canadian claim a it stands today ha been arrived at by evolution. Tbe treaty makes the boundary begin at the southernmost point of Prince of Wales Island and "ascend to the north along the channel called Portland Channel." A Portland Channel, which run to the nurth begins almost due east of the southernmost point of Prince of Wales Island, tbe Canadians set up the con tention that the treaty makers could not have meant Portland Channel but must lave bad Beham Canal In mind. In accordance with this view, Mr. Smith, chief commissioner of land and work In ISM made a map in which he carried the Une up Behm Canal. AsUe from this, the map fol lowed in a general way the line con ten led for by the Americans. It wa not until 1895 that the Can adian contention took it present shap. In that year, Mr. Martin, the chief conmliiloner of lands and works, published a map which shows tbe preseat Canadian contention in Its full Jevelop.nent He adopted the same theory Jiat his predecessor did a to Portland channel and ran hi line up Behm canaL Then he abandoned the winding of the coast, which the theory provided sho-Ud be the guide In locating the Une 10 marine league therefrom, and basing his work on the contention that the treaty meant that the coast Une shoull be considered as running from head la id to headland, he laid down what ie termed the undetermined boundary line. This line. It will be seen, crosses the Lynn canal Immediately south of Ber nera bay, and throws all of the upper part of the canal. Including Dyea, Skagway, Pyramid HarDor ana omer settlements and the entrance Into the harbor, and It la contended by the rep resentattves of the United States that this would be directly contrary to the provisions of the treaty.

Have who seem to be a UtUe weary is the rltlcal. secretary himself, who for nearly two mmrs touay listened to a learned dls-cu-ision by General Mile of the reason why he should have control of the Inspector general' department equally with the aecretay of war and why he snouia receive reports from the artil lery and cavalry as heretofore. Utwn the conclusion of this conference the secretary listened very carefully to General Breckinridge, who Is said to remain under the control of General Miles, and to General Corbln, -and the order as Issued will depart but little from that under which the Inspector general's department has been con ducted In the past. Thus General Miles has secured a vlotory over for men Secretary Alger and Secretary Root as, temporarily, at least, restored harmony. CROP FAILURE IN RUSSIA.
