THE OLD RELIABLE Absolutely Pure THtRE IS NO SUBSTITUTE UNITED STATES WINS fftfSION OF ALASKAN BOUKO ARY TRIBUNAL FAVORABLE TO AMERICANS. USES OK ONLY ONE CONTENTS CANADA SECURES CONTROL OF BOTH CHANNELS OF PORT. LAND CANAL. I.onrton, Oct. IS.—The She Alaska bound arv onirnission has reached an agree rrnnt whereby all the American -on tfations are sustained, with the ex ceptiun of those in relation to the Po rflanri canal, which Canada wins AH that now remains to be done is foi tke commissioners to aftix their signa tores to tho decision and complete tht map which will accompany it. On the map will be marked tht bouu.lary line definitely fixing th division of American and British ter ritory on such a basis that no Anieri can citizen will lose a foot of land he already believed he held, while the Unite*! States will get all the water ways in the rich Alaskan territory with the exception of the Portland canal, which gives Canada the one out let she much needed. The I.u.g standing dispute was set tled a:t.'. week of keen, trying and •ecu't .v-ration between the arbi trates. to noon there was an acute oility that a disagreement might ic^uit and the whole proceed lugs fall to the ground. Lord Alver etone, though openly inclined to be lieve iu the justice of the American argument that the United States was entitled to the heads of inlets as con tained iu question 5, held out that Canada had established her case iu questions 2 and 3, dealing with the Portland canal. After luncheon Senator Lodge, Sec retary Root and Senator Turner agreed to cede these points and to start the American boundary line from the heud of the Portland canal, thus giving the Canadians that channel and some small islands, on which there are only a few disused store houses. This accomplished the major ity of the tribunal agreed to fix, with this exception, the entire boundary as outlined in the American case. Newt of Decision Causes Surprise, i The successful termination of the Alaskan boundary arbitration came as a complete surprise to all interested in the case, except, perhaps, the com missioners themselves. When the tribunal adjourned at 3:30 p. in. it was understood that no decision had been reached. Indeed, so general was the impression that no decision would be reached lor a few days that .several of counsel and others employed in the case left London soon after the ad journment. However, the Associated Press learned that a vote had been taken and that the decision to grant all the American contentions except that for the Portland canal, which goes to Canada, had been arrived at. No hitch occurred during the entire deliberations and as these progressed the confidence of the American com missioners that a decision substan tially upholding the American claims would be given was increased, but it was admitted that it would be neces sary to agree to a compromise on the Portland canal. The only really disquieting feature of the situation for the Americans dur ing the last few days had been a vague idea that Chief Justice Alver stone, even if he concluded to take the American view, might be un willing to go on record with a deci sion to that effect and that a disagree ment was likely. CALL f? A DISTINCT VICTORY. state Department Officials Pleased With Decision. Washington. t. ly.—Ths Asso ciated Press bulletin from London an nouncing the decision of the Alaskan boundary commission was the first intimation received by the stute de partment that the commission had reached an agreement. Although the bulletin from London is exceedingly brief stat.' depaitment officials fcay that it alto** a distinct fletorv for the Lnited States, n is men opin ion that the effect of the decision re garding the Portland canal merely give3 to Canada the possession of Pearse island, a small island in the Portland canal and of no special im portance. This detail of the contro versy is admitted by state department officials to have been open to argu ment. on both sides. Pearse island is at the mouth of the canal. The latter is divided into two canals by the island and Canada for merly had undisputed use of the east ern channel. Under the present de cision Canada will have the use of the western channel. CANADIANS DISAPPOINTED. Boundary Decision the Subject of General Regret. Toronto. Ont., Oct. 19.—Great dis approval and disappointment is felt lu re over the decision in the Alaska boundary case.

C., the master in ordinary, who has made a special study of the bound ary dispute, and it conveys the feel ing of Canadians generally. Choked His Wife to Death.

SZAR IS OPPOSED TO HOSTILITIES MAINTENANCE OF PEACE THE CHIEF AIM OF HIS POLICY IN THt PAR EAST. ft. Petersburg, Oct. 19.—'While ex pressing the hope of a peaceful issue of the Far Eastern crisis the Novoe Vrcmya points out that if war breaks out the Russians will rise as one man at the call of the czar and there can be no doubt regarding the ultimate issue. The Novo© Vremya asserts that the Japanese belief that Viceroy Alexieff represents the Russian war party is quite erroneous, adding: "While the viceroy has been given extensive administrative powers he is only the executor of the orders of the czar in matters of foreign policy. One of the czar's chief aims, the main tenance of peace, is the fundamental basis of Russian policy in the Far East. This has not been modified since the institution of the viceroyalty and the holder of the post cannot de part from the very clearly defined pol ity of the Russian government, which has no other object than the peaceful prosperity of the state." BOTH REFU8E TO YIELD. Russo-Japanese Negotiations Making No Progress. Berlin, Oct. 19.—The negotiations between Japan and Russia, according to the view of the situation taken here, are not making progress. Earh side, it appears from official informa tion, will not yield on the essential propositions. Russia persists in re quiring an agreement that shall not delimit their respective spheres of supremacy and Japan declines to con sent to the general policy of "drift" under whuh Russian influence will, the Japanese say, steadily bear upon Korea and edge forward until the time is ripe for acquiring a part of, or the whole country. Japan, as previously cabled from here, is determined, ac cording to the German view, to have a settlement with Russia by a treaty whereto they must both abide, or ciso —and the tjircat is ever in the near background— hostilities will begin. This is the danger in plain view. The Japanese government seemingly mah. s no particular concealment from The exchange of diplomatic note: continues at Tokio without deflni1' results.
