necessary steps toward the conclusion of
a new treaty, which, while following to

many ways will be simpler. As regards tho

Houm, the splendid town residence of ths
duks and duchess of Marlborough, is near
ing completion. Built with Vasderbllt
money In tha heart of fashionable London.
It swept away a chapel Interwoven with
tho traditions of more than 100 years to
occupy a site In Curzon street, Mayfalr,
which Is peculiarly commanding.
When tho duchess received the 11,000.000
presented her by her father, W. K. Vander
bllt. the dearest ambition of her heart, the
purchase of Marlborough house (then the
residence of the prince of Wales) for the
family which gave It Its name, she met
with a most unexpected rebuff. King Ed
ward, then -the prince, told her that Marl
borough house belonged not to him, but to
tho nation. Her endeavor to gain his con
sent to change the name of the royal resi
dence that her own town house might bear
the proud title, was equally unsuccessful.
The duke then decided that the new resi
dence should be known as Blandford House
(marquis of Blandford Is his second title),
and the search for a suitable site was
made. Curion chapel, the property of Earl
Howe, which was yearly leased for $2.6"0
by a clergyman and affected by a fashiona
ble congregation, occupied the position
above all others coveted by the duches3.
The purchase was made and the old chapel,
where many famous weddings occurred and
fnany distinguished clergymen have
launched 'their thunders, which is endeared
to the readers of Thackeray's novels, was
pulled down to make way for Its palatial

are a billiard room, bedrooms and two
drawing rooms, one at each end of the
house to have sun or shade. The nurseries,
bed and dressing rooms for the marquis
of Blandford and his little brother are on
the third floor. The large playrooms ad
join these suit).
The cost of the bare building was $1,600,

lavishly In preparations for royalty.' A suit
of four rooms has been entirely refurnished
and redecorated for the duke of Connaught
himself, for whom several shooting parties
and motoring excursions have been ar
ranged. Ambassador Choate, who Is obliged to

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8.-(Special.)-For-mer
Senator Ocorge Turner of Washington,
who has Just returned from Europe, whers
he served on the Alaskan Boundary com
mission. Is spending a few days at the
rapltal before returning to his home on
the other side of the continent.
"The decision of the State department to
submit the question of the boundary line
I j a commission or board of arbitration,"
s-jld Mr. Turner, "caused a great deal of
adverse comment when It wss announced
last - winter. Some of the newspapers
seemed to think that the United States
might sacrtfico foit.s rights by asking for
a settlement of tho controversy without re
course to force. The outcome -Df the nego
tiations has demonstrated the wisdom of
the course adopted. I do not mean that
this country has gained any advantage In
a territorial way. We simply hold what
wa bought from Russia, and our title haa
been ratified after full, freo and friendly
discussion. But we have accomplished
mora than the settlement of this boundary
dispute. Wo have shown the world that
two great nations can settle a boundary
dispute by practically the same means
which two private Individuals would adopt
In reaching an agreement over a similar
difference. Hereafter it Is probable that
peaceful means will always be adopted In
settling disputes between the two great
English speaking nations of the earth.
Good Word for the Klufc.
"The English people were very cordial
and friendly," continued Mr. Turner, "and
I was particularly impressed with the at
titude of King Edward toward the Ameri
can people. I had the pleasure of meeting
him personally, and I found him to be a
broad gauge man of scholarly attainments,
with a deep seated knowledge of American
affairs, and a sincere desire to keep the
relations between his own country and
ours upon a most friendly basis. He took
great Interest in the deliberations of the
boundary commission, and I am satisfied
that he was delighted that a satisfactory
solution of the questions at Issue was
"London Is a great city," continued the
senator, "but the English people don't un
derstand anything about cigars. Those

found that Mr. Roosevelt 'continues to re

that he will make a forceful reference to

o Cleaner Bleeping- Cars.
Ono of the most Important subjects dls
ci ssed by the American Public Wealth as
sociation at Its recent convention In this
city was the sanitation of sleeping tars
It Is quite rrobable thnt an echo of the
meeting will be heard In congress at this
session, for every member realises that
there should bo national legislation look
ing toward the better cleansing and disin
fecting of these vehicles. The courts have
held on several occasions that under the
Interstate commerce '.aw as It now stands
the commission which controls the traffic
on railroads has no Jurisdiction over the
rolling stock of the sleeping car companies.
By a liberal use of passes among members
who might be obstreperous the companies
have thus far been able to head off all
legislation Inimical to their interests, and
they have succeeded up to the present time
In killing off even- bill which was designed
to place them within tho Jurisdiction of
the Interstate commerce set. But the Pub
lic Health association has called forcible
attention to the danger which threatens
the patrons of these cars, and the result Is
likely to be that several bills will be offered
which will force the companies to adopt
methods of sanitation designed to reduce
the danger of contagion to the minimum.
Evry health officer who attended the
session of the association admitted that the
problem Is a most difficult one to solve,
but the consensus of opinion was that It Is
solvable, and that a little pressure from
congress is the best thing that could hap
pen. not only for the traveling public, but
for the companies as well. It Is likely,
however, that when congress once takes
op the subject of sleeping cars, It will not
stop until It has provided for a regulation
of charges for accommodations, just as It
has authorised the Interstate Commerce
commission to regulate freight and pas
senger charges. It is notorious that the
rates for sleeping car accommodations are
arbitrary in tha extreme. Interested per
sons have been busy for months in com
piling figures which show that there is
nothing like a uniform system of charges
in existence. These figures will be pre
sented to congress, and will form the
saals for a forceful argument In support
of tha proposition to extend federal con

One of Re'nrned Caunrtlau Comihls

OTTAWA, Ont.. Nov. S. Hon. Clifford
Slfton, one of the Canadian representatives
on the Alaskan boundary tribunal, teturned
to Ottawa today. "The decision rendered
by the commission must be accepted as
final," he said. "No matter how Canadian
might feel r.'oout the Justice of the sward."
In his opinion It vas proven without do-rot
mat the Portland channel tf ts the toith
of lYarce, Wales, Kitklan and Kannaghau
nut Islands, thus entitling Canada to all
four, and that the boundary line should
cross the range of mountains nearest the
sea coast to the Lynn canal. It was his
Judgment that the t.cqulescence of Grent
Britain In acts of occupation by the t'nlted
Ptates made it difficult to expect a decision
favoraole to Canada.
In all, a, Canadian route from the Interior
to the roast, he believed, would be the
ultimate solution of the question.
