Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 29. Details
havo Just been learned of the plans
of tho newly-Incorporated Lake Siv
perlor, Long Lake & Albany River
Company for the construction of a
railroad through Canada from Penin
sula Harbor, on the northern shore
of Lake Superior, to a point adjoin
ing the mouth of tho Albany river, on
the southern shoro of James Bay,
and a branch line from Long Lake to
the Albany river.
According to the statements of Its
projectors the new railway line will
open tho heart of the western part
of tho "great clay belt," of tho James
Bay slope, said to be as capable of
growing grain as Manitoba, and af
ford access to great timber and pulp
wood resources. It will also, by
reaching James Bay, mako feasible
the creation of a great fishery trade,
especially in white fish, superior to
those of tho great lakes, and salmon,
declared In a recent geological sur
vey to be bettor In color and flavor
than those of British Columbia.
Tho main line of the road Is to be
150 miles in length. It will run in
its southern section through n
country rich in mineral deposits,

thing that would botray tne fact Hint
they aro not Americans as far as
their speech Is concerned, ig the oc
casional halting for a word, and the
use onco in a while of the pet phrase
of tho Chinaman, "by-and-bye."
Mr. Cheo, In Hpeaking of the pur
pose of their mission In this coun
try said: "We have been in this conn
try for the past four months, wqrl;
ing among our people in. the behnir
of the Reform Association, and ,nra
naving gooa success. The associa
tion was formed by the reform or
modern element of the people of our
country in 1889, and was sanctioned
by the emperor, Kwoog Sut. For
four months the government was
carried on In accordance with the
ideas of - the association, and at the
end of that time the Dowager Em
press saw that the teachings of the
association were not to her benefit,
and not in accordance with her pol
icy, and she put a summary stop to
it and put many of the leaders to
death. Her policy Is for her own
power, regardless of the goou of the
country, and her party is too strong
at this time to overturn.
"But understand, that the object
of the association is not war, but
pcatu. wuui we wiun io secure we
would accomplish in a lieuceful way.
and tho time Is coming when this
will be feasible. If wo could gain an
audience with the Dowager wo think
that the matter would be arranged.
We could retire her on a good allow
ance, so that she would bo comfor
table tor the rest of her days; or
fcomo plan could be adopted by which
tho rightful sovereign would bo' iu
power, anu tho good of tho country
would result. But might Is right
there, nnd the empress has always
looked for hor own good, and will so
continue to do, wo fear.
"Tho last four jears bus seen the
association grow at tho rato of a
mllllou a year, until now it has
branches in overy country where
thoro are uny of our countrymen.
The president of the association,
Kaug Yu Wei, Is now in Burmali,
where ho Is carrying on the work,
tho samo as we aro in this country.
Wo expect to bo here about three
months more, and will end our mis
sion iu San Francisco,
"When wo havo grown sumclontlv
strong in numbers wo hopo that the
reigning power in China will see
that wo have tho right on our side,
and wo will be able to put the em
peror on the throuo."
