THE SIBERIAN RAILWAY.
The Timun-Onisk section of the Sibe
rian railway, which was opened for pas
BengEr traffic on the 10th of this month,
formed the first Installment of this
colossal work, which was to dwarf all
the . longest continental lines of the
world. It is to be 6,700 miles in length,
and as yet 800 miles only are in actual
nee. Tiom Omsk, which is in the ei
. treme west of Siberia, it is to extend in
an eastern direction to Crasnoiarski, a
distance of nearly 3,000 miles.
... The embankments and cats forming
.this division are already made, and the'
-work is already being actively conduct
ed toward completion. From this point
the road will follow a more' southerly
coarse to Irkutsk, go along the southern
shore of Lake Baikal and through the
valley of the Seeluig river, cross the val
leys of the Lena and the Amur to Lake
'Col an, where excellent coal lias been
Thence it runs eastward to the steam
boat station at Szejetinek, on the Amur
river, and follows the course of that
stream 'southeastward to Khabaroffka
There it will turn southward along the
right bank of the Ussuri, run to Graff-
sky, and terminate at Vladivostock, on
the Sea of Japan.
From this port operations have been
commenced in a northwesterly direction
for some 200 miles, and the road is actu
ally running to Grap3ka. Thus it will
be seen that about 1,000 miles, or nearly
one-sixth of the entire distance, is virtu
allv accomplished. But innumerable
and almost insurmountable difficulties
surround the bridging of the gap be
tween these two extremities.
Siberia is a big country. It is twice as
large as the whole of the United States
Nine-tentns ot its territory nas never
been explored. The route of the rail
road is near the 55th parallel ; that is,
as far north as southern Alaska, and
consequently the climate is very cold
The difficulty of procuring and trans
porting men will come largely from the
Ural mountains, near the western term
inus of the road.
Rails are shipped from England
through the Artie to the mouth of the
Yenesei, a somewhat ventursome un
dertaking, and from there they are car
ried up the river by two steamboats,
one drawing eight feet of water, and the 1
other for service on the Angura, which
drains Lake Baikal, having a draft of
only three feet six inches. These ves
sels are fitted out as for an Arctic expe
dition. On the eastern portion of the line the
labor of convict exiles is being employed
to a considerable extent, and 25,000 of
these are said to be now at work upon
the railway. The Russian engineers ea
rn ate that the cost of the line will vary
from $30,000 to 67,000 a mile, according
to the difficulties to be overcome, but
the entire eum cannot be less than 300,
000,000. This enormous expense will be
entirely defrayed by the imperial treas-
It ia not supposed that the road will
pay for a great number of years, but the
crar is fully aware of its strategical
value. It will enable him to command
the northern boundaries of his political
neighbors with a very much emaller
' . military force than is required. When
this railway ia completed, and official
surmises fix the year 1901 for its open
ing a journey about 8,000 miles long can
be made from Paris to the Pacific at
Vladivostock. It will require about
three weeks of continuous travel to
GOOD LEO BAIL.
Mr. William Dunbar, who was con
victed last winter of smuggling, is on
his way to Japan. He was sentenced to
two years in the county jail, by a kind
hearted judge who did not want the dis
grace of having been in the penitentiary
to attach to so exalted a personage as
Mr, Dunbar. The extradition treaty
does not provide for the return of per
sons committing offences against the
revenue laws, so Mr. Dunbar can from
his point of vantage in Japan await the
decision of the supreme court, and gov
ern himself accordingly. If it is in his
favor he can come back and snap his
fingers at the other cases which have not
been tried yet. If it is against him, he
having reason to dread the other five in
dictments hanging over him will proba
bly prefer to pay the money and stay
where he is. According to the evidence
in the caee when Dunbar was convicted,
the gang had beaten the government out
of $220,000. Why he should be given
his freedom after being, convicted, for
the comparatively trifling sum of $6,000
is a mystery. T

that the blood is out of order, and they
need help to throw off the miserable
