made to order on which deposits have been paid and which for unkown reasons remained uncalled for. Such things happen to every Tailoring establish

to dispose of them from their own establishments.

WASHINGTON, Nov, 4. Ex-Secretary
John W. Foster, a member of the
Joint high commission to settle differ
ences between tho United States and
Cnnada. has prepared a summary of
this government's case on the Alaska
ore the American Geographical Sod
Mi. Fouler reviews the history of the
negotiations between Russia and Great
I'rllaln and showed that the British
only sought to prevent the extension of
the liUMlun claim eastward of the
Pocky mountains. The British govern
ment was then prepared to accept a
boundary line a hundred miles from the
coast ot the mainland. Great Britain
afterward succeeded In reducing this
strip to a width of ten marine leagues.
ItUHsIa permitted a 10-yeiur license to
fish and hunt In the estuaries, but de
clined to make It permanent.
That license was terminated at the
end of th period, and Mr. Foster says
Is Itself Inconsistent with any Interpre
tation of the treaty other than the com
plete sovereignty of Russia all over not
only the strip of mainland, but all the
buys ond Inlets.
Mr. Foster showed that In 1S39 the
Hudson Fiiy Company leased from the
KiiKslan government the very strip In
uuettlon, as shown by the Russian
maps, and In 1S.17 a parliamentary com
mittee, examining the head of the com
pany, brought out the fact thata Rus
sian sovereljjnty extended 30 nautical
miles Inland, following the Indentations
of the const. In 1878,' he continued, a
provisional boundary was esftablnlshed
by the I'nlted States at the crossing of
the Stlckeen river which follows the
present American contention, ana in
1S76, a criminal being tried and con
victed, was released by Canadian courts
because his offense was committed "In
Mr. Foster quitted the British Secre
tary Canning In his Instructions to the
Duke of Wellington, wherein he says:
"Enlightened statesmen, and Jurists
have long hold as Insignificant all titles
of territory that are not founded on ac

opinion of tho most esteemed writers on

With this as a basis, Mr. Foster made
the following presentation of the Amer
ican position regarding the boundary:
