There Is a Strong reeling That It Would
Be a Uood Arrangement for the Unit

All Central Amarlcan States England
Will Indorse Our Action.
London, Nov. 9. The British onle
Ials' attltudo toward the events at
Panama Is that It Is entirely tho
United States' affair. This feeling,
with the consequent comparative
apathy, appears to be shared In all dl
plomatlc quarters In Loudon. Except
In the unlikely possibility ot some out
side Interference, no action Is contain-
plated by tho British, or, so far as the
Associated Press Is able to ascertain,
at the various Embassies here, by any
other government. Uron request of

The question ot the recognition ot

States. If Washington communicates
to the powers thnt It Intends to recog
nize tho Independence of Panama, It
Is not likely thnt thcro will bo the
slightest objection on tho part of
Great Britain, while, according to the
views of tho diplomats here, tho other
European powers probably will quick

Alaska Commissioners Let One Stretch

Washington, Nov. 7. Contrary to
tho general understanding, It develop

cate tho entire boundary lino between
British nud Auicrlcnn territory, but a
stretch ot over 139 miles between

two prominent mountain peaks lying
southeast ot Skngway, Is yet to bo de
finitely located. Because ot the fail

which Is about one-fourth of tho entire
length ot tho boundary that Itns long
been In dispute.
It so happens that tho country lying
between Kate's Neodlo and DoyII's
Paw Is desolate, nnd apparently worth
less mountains ot snow nud Ice. The
determination of the actual location
of the boundary Is tbereforo of no Im
mediate Importance, but should mines
bo developed, or should other resourc
es bo discovered, thcro would bo n rep
etition of tho dispute that has existed
all over Southeastern Alaska since the
discovery of gold In tho territory.
Tho boundary commission did not
havo before it sufficient duta to enable
It to fix this portion ot the boundary
with any degree of satisfaction.
