TO DAWSON CITY
This Would Avoid War and Show the
U. S. That There Is No Advantage
to Be Gained in Refusal to Have
Boundary Line Determined.
Keiv York, July 28. The Herald's
correspondent at Ottawa has interviewed
Sir Charles Tuiper, lender of the op
position and Senator David Mills, minis
ter of justice on the Alaska boundary
qaeetion. Senator Mi lis went at great
length to ehow that the Canadian con
tention was supported net only by Amer
ican precedents but by the language
of the treaty.
"The settlement of the question," he
Bjid, "in accordance with our conten
tion, is ft matter of great importance to
Canada, because it gives us easy and in
expensive ingress to our own territory,
whereas, if Hie United States wins, it
will be a great detriment to us and of
little benefit to them. I recall a bound
ary dispute between the United States
and Great Britain in which the Amer
ican authorities .'contended their views
ought to prevail because the contention
was of great advantage to them without
being seriously Injurious to England."
After detailing their contention that
the Canadian line was to follow the
winding "of the oast" and across the
mouthof inlets and estuaries from head
lands to headlands without following
the sinuosities of these arms of the sea,
Senator Mills made this statement:
Just why the Americans refused to
arbitrate or to compromise except on
conditions impossible to ns it shown In
the treaty of 1825. By tho Seventh arti
cle of that treaty, 'the vessels of Russia
and England or those belonging to their
subjects' were to he at liberty without
any hindrance whatever to enter all the
inland sea?, gulfs, havens and creeks for
the purpose of fishing and trading with
the natives. By article 10, the British
and Russian vessels navigating tho Pa
cific ocean, if compelled by storm or ac
cident, were allowed to take ehelter in
the ports of the respective parties and
were at liberty to rcCt there.
"Now is it not too clear to admit of
question that the contracting parties as
mmed that under the provisions of this
treaty there were ports and estuaries
lonj the coast that wero under the sov
ereignty of each? Yet if the United
States' contention is correct there were
Ports and waters remaing to Great
Brittin. Ai a matter of fact if the
treaty is followed, the Lynn canal will
tofonnl to be entirely within Canidian
territory. This point was made in the
commidion. On that Canada would
hve won. That is why there Is no arbi
tration." Seven Babies at a Birth.

July 23. The volcanic eruption on
Manna Loa is still in full blast. The lava
flow is apparently filling up the table
land, and Ililo and the whole island of
Hawaii are enveloped in smoke. Vessels
encounter dense clouds of smoke a hun
dred miles out at sea, and navigators aro
seriously inconvenienced. Kilatia Is also
smoliing freely and indications ate this
volcano will soon be in active eruption.
Frank Davey, a photographer, has re
turned from a visit to the volcano. He
says there is a series of eight craters;
five of them were dead, but appeared to
have been active quite recently. One of
the others was belching forth smoke and
fire and molten rocks of great size. Ac
cording to Davey, the rocks were as big
as horses and went so high that they
cooled before falling to the ground again.
It took Davey and his party 15 hours to
ascend the mountain from the active cra
ter to the summit, where their horses
were left. Two men became delirious
from want of water.
The trip is described ns a terrible rne
in the extreme. All' around the top of
the mountain was cold, but at the cra
ter it was very hot, The extremes were
such as would knock most anybody out.

From Sylvan Valley News, Brevrad,
It may be a question whether the
editor of a newspaper bus the right to
publicly recommend any of tho various
proprietary medicines which flood the
market, yet as preventive oi suffering
we feel it a duty to ssy a good word for
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Itemed y. We have known and
mid this medicine in our family lor
twenty years and have always found it
reliable. In many cases a dose of this
remedy would save hours of suffering
while a physician is awaited. We do
not believe in depending implicitly on
any medicine for a cure, but we do
believe that If a bottle of Chamberlain's
Diarrhoea Remedy was kept on hand
and administered at the Inception of an
attack, much suffering might be avoided
and in very many cases the presence of
physician would not be required. At
least this has been onr experience
during the past twenty years. For sale

TO FAVOR IT
At Any Rate, the United States, Canada
and Britain Must Be Neighborly
London-, July, 29. -The Alaaka bound
ary again looms large in the newspapers,
and a heated discussion is raging for and
against the suggestion that a harbor
should be leased to Canada. The official
view seems to he favorable to this com
promise as a basis for a friendly arrange
ment. It h pointed out that as the
United States, Canada and Great Britain
have to live as neighbors, and, in there
hearts desire to live as friends, neither
side can afford to asjume a noopossiruus
attiude or act as if it were the last tran
saction to be arranged and as the main
question at issue, though almost lost to
view among the multitude of irritating
side issues, was a means of easy access
to tho Klondike, the lease of a harbor
would seem to be the practical need of
Canada. On the other hand, the Satur
day Review voices the feeling of a consi
derable section of the public in pointing
out that by accepting the suggested
settlement Canada debars hereelf from
again raising the question of territorial
right, and becomes a mere licensee w here
she desires to becomo the owner in fee
simple. Manv think the proposed com
promise would lead to endless complica
tions, annoyances, acts of retaliation
and attempts on one eide to exceed their
own or restrict the other side's rights
under tho proposed compromise, the
Saturday Review thinks Canada ought,
in no event, to surrender her rights In
international law, unless she concurrent
ly receives considerable concessions from
the United States on other questions be
fore the commissioners.
The Saturday Review proceeds to
claim that Canada now suffices, both
politically and economically, and has no
further need of the United States; that
oi ly the most factious policy on the part
of Great Britain could revive the annex
ationist party in Canada, and asks what
possible reason the Canadians could have
for involving tho country in the gravest

I certainly would not be disposed to

Chicago, July 29. Adolph L. Lnet
!' sudden death in the penitentary
at Joiiet on Thursday last has brought
to light the fact that States Attorney C.
8. Deiuen has had locked up in the
vaults at the criminal court building,
almost from the bet-inning of accused's
iiia! for wife murder, two jears ago, an
implication that is considered morally
bis confession of guilt. It was made by
Lnetgert to a fellow-prisoner in the jail.
It was sworn toby tho latter at the
time before the state's attorney. Now
it is given publication for the first time.
From this document itwcn'd appear
that Laeigert a'.ked his wife to fo with
him to the sausage fuctory office on
May 1, 1S97. She refused. This anger
ed him. During the quarrel that follow
ed he gave her a violent kick in the side.
This rendered her unconscious. Luet

she did not. Seeing t tint she had died,

fully Into the River.
Portland, July 29. Fully 5000 people,
fringing both the Morrison and Madison-
street bridges, standing 10 deep on the
docks along the west side ot the river,
and crowding every possible point of
vantage on the eaet bank, witnessed the
launching of the 30-knot torpedo-boat
destroyer Go'dsborongh from the wa8
at the Wolff&Z flicker Iron works yester
day. The event was called for 2 o'clock,
and it came off on time. Belated sight
seers wero still struggling with their
earlier ueikhbors for places to view the
launching when the last shore was
knocked from the cradles, and the boat
began slowly to gather headway for her
first jonrnev. In 40 seconds more she
was ri ling gracefully on the river. There
was hardly a ripple under her stern as
she entered tho water, so easily did she
slide down the ways, and scarcely did
the lines intended to restrain her lift
from the water and vibrate as they tight
ened before she was quietly swinging
dawn with the current, n flag which was
unfurled as she lnft the ways floating
from her stern. From the knocking out
of the first shore there had not been a
hitch, and the launching of the Golds
borough was a start in life which any
sailor might covet for the ship on which
he cast his lot.
The Crime of a Rejected Suitor at
Arlington, Or., July DO. At 8 o'clock
last night, Al Kessler attempted the
murder of his sweetheart, Miss Maude
Mitchell, who came here fiom Portland i
few days ago.
Miss Mitchell had rejected Mr. Kessler,
whereupon he followed her from Port
land to thii place, and, locating her,
watched his opportunity to get in his
deadly work. When she was preparing
for bed, Kesslor entered her loom,
masked, knocked her senseless with a
club and tied a towel r.bout her neck to
produce strangulation. He then jumped
out of tho window and escaped, thinking
he had accomplished his purpose.
The peoplo nt the house, hearing an
unusual noise, went to her room and,
receiving no answer, forced the door,
and found Miss Mitchell, as they sup
posed, dead. Medical aid was sum
moned and she was restored to con
sciousness, and will recover.

lows: The situation In Samoa is one of
great uneaeiness, the attitude of natives
being far from reassuring. Several fights
have recurred in different portions of
the islands between supporters of rivals
for the kingship, and several natives
have been killed. Nothing much seems
to have been accomplished by the high
commission since arms were surrendered
by the contending factions.
Chief Justice Chambers, being dissat
isfied with the support extended to his
court by the commissioners, will leave
today for Washington. Their action in
refusing the aid asked for to eu9taiu the
