of 88 degrees of latitude, raised American
flags and appointed native governors. It

Says a Majority ef KBKlinlimen Arc
Opposed to the "War.
NKW TORK, Feb. 12. Montagu White
writes to the World as follows:
"I am delighted to find that the pros
pects of peace are increasing. The heroic
resistance of the Boers must convincingly
satisfy the large body of impartial English
opinion that they are fighting for the
nobleet principles of mankind home, free
dom and Independence.
"There was a strong minority In Eng
land bitterly opposed to this war from the
first. I am perfectly sure that this mi
nority has been Increased to a majority,
although the sentiments of pride and pres
tige may possibly prevent them from open
ly advocating the cessation of hostilities.
It ought not to be impossible for American
sympathisers and advocates of peace to
work on the Unas of the conciliation com
mittee In England, thus finding a means of
securing conditions of peace honorable to
both parties.
"Although the Boers have shown mili
tary abilities which have surprised the
whole world, they are essentially peace
loving, and the vory reverse of what Is
known as a warlike people. The fact that
their existence as a people is at stake ac
counts for their wonderful morale and ef
ficiency. They have means and the de
termtmtton to carry on a long war, but I
am jntre that they would welcome any ef
forts that would enable them to beat
their swords Into pruning hooks, providing
that an honorable and a permanent peace
cou'.d be assured."

Principal Address Was Delivered by
Senator Depeiv.
NEW YORK. Feb. 12. Senator Chaun
cey M. Depew presided over and delivered
the principal address at the 14th annual
Lincoln d.nner of the Republican Club,
held at Delmonlco's, tonight. The dinner
was attended by over 300 members of the
club, and their guests. A notable guest
present was Lincoln's registrar of the
treasury, L. E. Chittenden, who Is now an
octogenarian. Among the other guests of
honor were Abner McKInley, General An
son G. McCook, General Samuel Thomas,
General Henry L. Burnett, Attorney-General
John W. Griggs, Congressman Robert
G. Cousins, of Iowa; Berlah Wllklna and
Professor Edwin Markham.
Senator Depew, before Introducing the
first speaker, addressed the gathering. In
the course of his speech he said:
"It Is an Interesting question as we close
one century and enter upon another, to
speculate as to who will survive of the 19 th

mind and eye of the generations of that
period, only two are universally and com
monly recognized of all men George
"Washington and Napoleon Bonaparte.
When the 20th shall have been lost In the
21st or 22d, and the story of the 20th is
recalled, I doubt If there will be In the
mind of the schoolboy and the average
man or woman any other well-known
names than. In Europe, Bismarck; in
America, Lincoln.
"Lincoln dared proclaim that the United
States could not live half free and half
slave; that one or the other must perish,
and that slavery would perish and the
Union survive, when so to declare periled
tho life of the orator and ruined his
political career. He aroused a storm of
protest, of discussion and of denunciation
by his emancipation proclamation as a vio
lation of tho constitution, even If It saved
the country, only equaled by the denun
ciation from the same class of minds of
the action of President McKInley in sanc
tioning the acquisition of new territory
and the imposition of American institu
tions upon Puerto Rico and the Philip
pines." After declaring that the whole spirit
and philosophy of Lincoln's politics was
the power of the people, Senator Depew
turned to the Kentucky trouble, declar
ing that It had all ben brought about

Schemes for Reclaiming TJencrts of I
Central Asia Changes In Courses
of Historic Rivers.
On the Transcasplan Railway, July 29.
The geography of Central Asia has been
a powerful factor In directing the history,
politics, commerce and agriculture of the
region. Fertile oases, virtually surround
ed by barren deserts and great mountain
ranges, became the homes of races which,
left to themselves, developed high civiliza
tions. Through this civilization, -with Its
id? Uffliv wwswitl i iV" "iuS7 yVu,0WN W

consequent wealth, they became the object
of the attacks of Invaders from the out
side world. The deserts that were less
tempting were left to the nomads who
preferred them. By their depredations
these very nomads offered the excuse for
other Invasions that enabled conquerors
in late years to seize the fertile provinces
that were their real object, but which
could not have been reached In any other
way. Tartars and Turks In the past cen
turies have striven for this wealth. Now
the contest is between Russia and Eng
land. England has India. Russia has
Central Asia. Between, them He Persia
and Afghanistan, the former apparently
drifting Into the position of a Russian
province, and the latter still occupying
Its traditional attitude as "buffer state"
between the two great empires.
With possessions sweeping across the
Euro-Asian continent from the Baltic sea
to the Pacific, Russia Is essentially a
northern empire. It Is only in the terri
tories through which this portion of my
Journey has been that Russia becomes In
a sense a eouthern power. The Southern
Caucasus and the Central Asiatic prov
inces, peopled by races with southern
characteristics, Mohammedan In faith,
with tropical summers and tropical man
ners of life in the summer, are strikingly
different from the great areas thtlt make
European Rujs a and Siberia. Adding to
this the fact that the tendency is to ex
tend these Russian boundaries ever south
ward, it becomes necessary to look at Rus
sia In this region as a southern empire.
Central Asia is easily defined on a
map. The adjective Is geographical rather
than geometrical, for the actual center of
the continent Is far to the eastward, and
this region really comes to the western
border of Asia. Geographically, then,
It Is the great tongue extending southward
from Siberia proper, bounded on the south
"by Persia and Afghanistan and confined
between the Caspian sea on the west and
the extreme western provinces of the Chi
nese empire on the east. On the maps of
Colonel Alexis Aeainaloff.
(Commander of the Russian post at Merv.)
the world as known to the ancients Its
southern portions were Included In the
northern parts of Parthla and Bactrla.
Daae and Sogdlana were within its bor
ders. Scythla came down from the north
and contained the deserts of Transcaspla
and the Sea of Aral. Prior to the revision
of the maps of thirty years ago the atlases
showed Bokhara, Khiva, Khokand and
Turkestan with ill-defined boundaries,
sometimes overlapping. Now all doubts
are ended. It Is all Russian Central Asia.
Roughly speaking, the area thus Includ
ed measures about 1000 miles north and
south by some 1500 east and west. The
railway from the Caspian sea, by which
the Russians are advancing eastward
across central Asia, close to the southern
borders of this region, Is therefore more
than 1000 miles south of their other more
conspicuous line. The whole of the Euro
pean empire Is divided for administrative
purposes Into general governments which
correspond somewhat to our own states.
Of these two are Included In the regions
known as Central Asia. The first, the
government of the Steppes, contains five
provinces, those of Ural, Turgal, Akmo
llnsk, Semlplatlnsk and Semlrechensk. Th
first four of these He m. succession from
west to east Immediately to the south of
S'berla and geographically often are con
sidered by readers to be a part of Siberia,
though they are not properly so. Seml
rechensk lies to the south of Semlpalat
lnsk and forms the border province with
the Chinese empire.
Still to the south of the government of
the Steppes He the regions more properly
named Central Asia, the second general
government. This Is Turkestan, Itself di
vided Into the three provinces of Sir Darla.
Ferghana and Zarafshan. The latter prov-

ince contains the city of Samarkand and ;
is Itself generally known by that name.
Tashkend Is the capital of- the province of
Sir Darla and Is also the seat of govern
ment for the general govern
ment of Turkestan. The district of Amu
Daria, on the south shore of the Aral sea,
is administered as part of the .province of
Sir Daria.
Semi-Independent Provinces.
The semi-Independent khanates of Khiva
and Bokhara extend along the Oxus river
all the way from Afghanistan to the Aral
sea, cutting off the provinces of Turkestan
JUSt named from tho nrnvlno of Trans-
caspla, which for the time is administered
! as a separate government, though by no
means as Independent In Its administration
j as the general governments of Turkestan
i and the Steppes. Transcaspla borders the
sea for which It Is named from the prov
ince of Ural on the north to Persia on
the south, the khanates of Khiva and Bok
hara a.nd the Independent country of Af-
ghanlstan forming the remaining bounda
ries. Transcaspla contains the great des
ert of Kara Kum, or "black sand," and
Sir Daria the rival desert of Klzil Kum.

The rivers of Central Asia have np out
let to the sea, but are contained through
out the entire length of their flow In the
great central plateau and basin of the
continent. Russia contributes one great
river, the "Volga, to the same basin, and
another, the Ural, which forms part of
the boundary between Europe and Asia,
like the Volga, flows Into the Caspian sea.
This land-locked sea, 84 feet below the
level of the ocean, does not receive any of
the rivers of Central Asia, however, being
cut off from them by the worst of deserts.
The Aral sea, standing at a level of 243
feet above that of the Caspian,' receives
the Amu Darla and Sir Darla, the ancient
Oxus aad Jaxartcs, the largest rivers of
the region, one at the north and one at
the south of Its basin. The plan has been
long under contemplation to turn the Oxus
Into Its ancient bed, directing It to the
Caspian sea, which once received Its wat
ers. Engineers have calculated, however,
that if the full current of the great river
were diverted to this ancient bed the de
mands of the thirsty desert would be so
great, by absorption, seepage and evapo
ration, and the filling of depressions, that
from 15 to 25 years would elapse before
the first of the waters would reach the
Caspian again at Krasnavodsk bay. The
Murghab river, which waters the Merv
oasis, and the Zarafshan, which waters
Samarkand and Bokhara, have no outlet
even into the Aral, but their waters are
entirely exhausted by the Irrigation du
ties which they are compelled to perform,
until the rivers vanish in gardens and
grain fields. The ultimate destiny of the
sea of Aral is a problem for geologists.
The Oxus carries an unusual quantity of
solid matter, estimated at 2 per cent,
so that tho delta Is gradually expanding,
and the sea Itself becoming shallower.
When tho sea is compelled to overflow,
as Is prophesied will be the case some day,
the river will have to And a new channel
of Its own toward the Caspian.
Schemes of Russian Engineers.
Russian engineers -have some great
schemes under consideration for making
the great areas- the empire has annexed
more populous and more productive, and
all of these must involve utilization of the
waters. The province of Transcaspla,
which is virtually coincident with the re
gion descriptively known as Turkomanla
the land of the Turkomans Is almost a
desert except for the Merv oasis and a
few smaller oases where water has been
brought from the Persian mountains. It
Is, however, the lowest portion of the en
tire central Asian depression, which slopes
in terraces from the mountain ranges of
the Pamirs and Chinese Turklstan to the
Caspian sea. The next terrace in this
rough division Includes the khanates of
Bokhara and Khiva, while the third and
highest before reaching the mountains
practically coincides with the province of
Sir Darla. It Is suggested, therefore, that
the rivers of each terrace might be di
verted into the lands of the terrace next
below with profit to all concerned. This
would make Sir Daria depend on moun
tain streams for Irrigation, would give
the Sir Darla river to the khanates and
would turn the Oxus, greatest of all, into
Transcaspla. Of course It Is the last
rlverless province which would be the
greatest gainer, but It Is claimed that the
system could be so devised that no one
would be the loser, and great advances
could be made toward reclaiming the
deserts. It is but a few miles from the
course of the Oxus to the beginning of
the slope Into Turkomanta, so that the en
gineering problem for this portion of th&
work Is not considered Insurmountable.
If the undertaking is carried out, the
whole face of nature in central Asia will
be altered.
The Russian railway Into central Asia,
the Transcasplan military railway, as It
Is named, has Its western terminus at
Krasnovodsk, on the Caspian sea, direct
ly opposite the petroleum port of Baku.
From Krasknovodsk It runs southeast to
Dushchak, along the boundary of Persia,
at which p!ace the line makes a sudden
angle to the northeast. From Krasno
vodsk to Chardjul. a distance of 712 miles,
the trains are In Transcaspla, passing the
important towns and cities of Klzil Arvat,
Askhabad ard Merv', Askhabad being the
seat of govemirent. At Chardjul the line
enters the khanate of Bokhara, passing
clear across the country on the way to
Samarkand. The eastern extension from
Samarkand Includes two branches, one
i i.ntfpcmn f-
running northeast to Tashkend and the.
other straight east Into Ferghana, ter
minating at Andijan. The only branch
from the main line Is built southward
frqm Merv, up the Murghab river, to
Kushk post on the Afghan border, 0
miles from Herat.
Makes for Wider Commerce and Ad

New York- Tribune.
Speculation upon the status of the canal,
when constructed under the terms of the
new treaty, naturally arises. There need,
however, be little uncertainty about It.
The canal whether at Nicaragua, or Pan
ama, or elsewhere; for the treaty does
not prescribe Its route will be of Ameri
can construction and under Amer can con
trol, and will be under a guarantee of neu
trality to all the commerce of the world.
Its status will be like that of the Suez
canal. The latter Is under British con
trol, partly from British ownership or
shares, partly from British occupation of
the country through which It runs. But
we have never heard its neutrality called
Into question, nor the good faith of Great
Britain in maintaining Its neutrality chal
lenged, not even by the bitterest foe of
Great Britain. We assume that under
American control neutrality of the Isth
mian canal will he equally inviolate.
It Is perfectly obvious that if the United
States constructs the canal it will deem
It to Its advantage to keep It open, on the
most equitable terms, to the world's com
merce. The more the canal Is used the
better it will be for this country. The
notion that we should set up fortresses
at each end of it, and under their guns
search every vessel that sought to pass
through, may be dismissed to the realm
of Walpurgis dreams. So much, In time
of peace. In the remote contingency of
war between this country and some other
maritime power It Is not difficult to imag
ine what would happen, just as there
need be no doubt as to what would happen
at Suez In like case. There Is no occa
sion to conjure up any raw head and
'bloody bones about It.
The vast majority of the people of the
United States will, we are convinced, hall
the signing and ratification of the new
treaty with joy assuming, of course. Its
purport to be what there is every reason
for supposing It to be. They will regard
it as one of those fine triumphs of diplo
macy which make for the good of both
sides, and for the humiliation of neither,
and as a distinct forward movement to
ward wider commerce, better International
relations, advanced civilization, and more
of sweetness and enlightenment In the af
fairs of men.
