Senator Squire Says Onrs Are Almost Absolutely Useless at Present. No Use Having Diplomatic Back bone While at the Mercy of Nations. Twenty-eight American Cities Which Should Be Supplied With Defenses. SEATTLE, Wash., NOT. 10.—Senatoi Wutson C. Squire, chairman of the senate committer on coast defense, who Will, within a few days leave for th» national capital, has very decided views concerning the Alask:ui boundary dis pute. He is by no means pleased with the present outlook. "This country must wake up immedi ately to the knowledge of its defenseless condition," he said. "Several years ago the senate committee on coast defenses recommended to the senate the estab lishment of a cannon factory on th« Pacific coast. I reported the bill from the committee and supported it in an earnest speech ou the subject. ery few people are aware of the fact that the old fortifications and cannon mounted on our sea coast Are Absolutely Useleta apainst modern ships of war. They are ubout as effective as a pistol would be against (Jatling guns. So far as I ani awaro there is now only one completed modern fortification in the United States supplied with modern guns of heavy calibre, and that is at Sandy Hook. This constitutes the entire mod ern land defense of the great city of New York. It is true, however, that works of this kind have been com menced at Huston and San Francisco. The appropriations of congress have been absolutely inadequate for protect ing sea coast cities from destruction by a foreign enemy. There are 28 of the principal sea coast cities in the Uuited States requiring guns and fortifications lor defense against possible outside foes. Difficult to Tak« a Firm Stand. It is therefore very difficult for oui government to take a strong stand in an international diplomacy when it is conscious of such utter weaknes to withstand an attack." When asked in what light he re garded the action of the British gov eminent in stationing police along the Alaskan boundary,, the senator said: "I do not know what friendly object England can have in sending an armed body of men there at this time. Both nations, as I understand the matter, are engaged iu a friendly effort to definitely locate the international boundary line. If the present unfavor able developments continue, I shall oer tainly call the attention of congress to this matter at an early date and iu no uncertain tone." KEP0RTv OF SECRETARY SMITH Uli Views on I'aciflo Railroad* Will Make It Interesting. WASHINGTON, NOV. 16.—The report of Secretary Smith will be one of the most interesting that has been made by secretary of the interior in several years. Then are several features which will be an innovation in this depart ment More interest centers around the recommendations the secretary will make for the settlement of the Pacific railroad debts than anything else. It is known that Mr. Smith believes in continuous lino of Pacific roads from Omaha to the Pacific ocean, and that he thinks such a line Can Be Operated to Advantage. Some time ago, the secretary held up all patents of lands to the Pacific rail roads which were bond-aided, amount ing to 7,(MX),(MM) acres. Whether this is an indication that he intends to make tome rather radical recommendations to congress is not known, but it is a fact that the secretary has been securing statistics relative to tl*a earnings of the road and their capacities to earn enough to pay interest upon the present indebt edness. It is expected that congress will undertake to legislate upon the subject of the Pacific railroad indebted aess during the coming session, and the ^•oretary will no doubt recommend jian of settlement.

THE EXECUTION OF HAYWARD Said That Wil^Tnko Place Early In Derrm ber. MINNEAPOLIS NOV. Hi.—The Tribune says: In all human probability, Dec. 6, almost a year to a day since Catherine Ging met her death on that lonely country road, a year ago almost exactly since Hay ward was arretted on suspicion of the mtirder, the perpetrator will hang by the neck until he is dead. There is not the least doubt now, from almost positive information, but what the decision will be against the con demned man, and in fact the date is almost set when the affair will take place. Cantjr^Wrltintf the Decision. Saturday last the judges of the su preme court had the papers looking them over Tuesday last Judge Canty consented to write the decision, after having held a conversation with Judge Seagrave Smith the day before,in which the appeal was talked over at some length. Since then positive information has come as to what that decision is, and the only thing that holds it back is the fact that it is a lengthy document, requiring some care in its preparation. Will Leave It to the County Attorney. Under the law, the sheriff of Henne pin county must be informed what the decision is before it is filed, that he may ike necessary precautions before it is published. lie will probably hearbf it through the county attorney, who will be informed by the attorney general of the state. After that the defense has 10 days by statute iu which to ask for a re-argument, ami the date of execution ill not be fixed within that time. The prisoner has already had more than his three calendar months of grace, and the governor will leave the matter entirely with the county attorney, who will ask that the day of execution be fixed at a date as near the date of murder as pos sible.
