Canada's Last Propos.tion Le Rad ical Than Her Former Oas. 1-ondon, by Cable. The Associate;! Pre enabltd to give authoritatively Canada' final proposition for a per manent settlement of the Alaska dis pute. It is very different from her for mer demand and wa delivered to United States Amjaador Choate, by the Canadian Minister of Marine and Fisheries, Sir lnile! Henry :avies, before the litter Failed and was dis patched to Washington by the officials of the United Ftitfs embassy. It as follow,; "That the boundary line lie arbitra ted upon terms similar to those Im posed by the United State3 and Great Britain over Venezuela, particularly those provisions making fifty years occupancy by either Hide conclusive eveldence of title, occupancy of less than that periud to be taken as equity allows under international law. "Thnt as a condition precedented awf absolutely preliminary to arbitration, Skaguay and Dyea would be conceded to the United States without further claim if Canada received Pyramid har bor. . "In ether wcrds, Canada gives up much of the disputed gold country in return for a fi-aporf. but stipulates that she must ret the latter before she agrees to arbitrate the boundary line.'1 It is said at the State Department that the proposition as to a permanent Alaskan boundary laid down by Sir Louis DavLs, is nothing more nor less than a summary cf claims heretofore preferred. When the Commission was In session last spring, and the Canna dian proposition was made to settle the boundary question by arbitration, the American commissioners replied by an offer to accept arbitration with the proviso that no point occupied by Amer:Htit for a specified term of years shoul.i be- submitted to the arbitration. In other words, the term vas so fixed that by no possibility could the title to Skagufcy, Dyea, or any other place that the Americans 4iad occupied for a period represented by the discovery of the Klondike field, be called into question by the arbitration. This was one of the final propositions rejected by the Canadian commissioners, which caused the failure of the joint con ference. Since that time there have been several suggestions in the nature of compromises and included among these was one like that embodied in Sir Louis Davies propositions, name ly: that the United States should con firm the Canadian title to.. Pyramid harbor fr the Canadian confirmation of the American to Skaguay and Dyea. It is. not possible to accurately fore cast the view that the State Depart ment will take of this last proposition, but It may be proper to recall the fact that in the opinion of the Department, Canada has no more claim to Pyramid harbor than it has to -Skagiiay ant'. Dyea, and the British government has already been Informed of that belief. Therefore, it seems probable that Sir Louis Davits' proposition will not ma terially advance a permanent settle ment of the boundary question and that the two countries will continue to act for tome time to come under the terras of the modus vivendi recently arranged by Secretary Hay ' and Mr, Tower.

"A national custom dear to the hearts of the people calls for the set ting apart of one day In eacb year as an occasion of special thanksgiving to Almighty God for the blessings of the preceding year. This honored obser vance acquires with time a tenderer significance. It enriches domestic life. It summons under the family r. of the absent children to glad re union with those they love. "Seldom has this nation had greater cause for profould thanksgiving. No great pestilence has invaded our shores Liberal employment waits upon labor. Abundant crops have rewarded the ef forts of the husbandman. Increased profits have come to the home. The national flnanaces have been strength ened, and public credit has been sus tained and made firmer. In all branches of industry and trade there has been an unequaled degree of prosperity, while there has been a steady gain In the moral and educational growth of our national character. Churches and schools have flourished. American pa triotism has been exalted. . Those en gaged in maintaining the honor of the flag with such signal success have been in a large degree spared from dis aster and disease. An honorable peace has been ratified with a foreign nation with which we "were at war, and we are now on friendly relations with every power cn earth. "The trust wc have assumed for tho benefit of the people of Cuba has been faithfully advanced. There is a marked progress toward the restora tion of healthy industrial conditions, and under wise sanitary regulations the island has enjoyed unusual exemp tion from the scourge of fever. The hurricane which swept over our new possession of Porto Rico, destroying the homes aad property of the inhab itants, called forth the instant sympa thy of the people of the United States who were swift to respond with gene rous aid to the sufferers. While the insurrection still continues in the Isl and of Luzon, business is resuming its activity, and confidence of the good purposes of the United States is being rapidly established throughout the ar chipelago. ' "For these reasons and countless others.I. William McKinley, President of the United States, do hereby name Thursday, the 0th day of November. 1899, as a day of general thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed as such by all our people on this continent and in our newly acquired islands, as well a3 by those who may be at sea or so journing in foreign lands; and I advise that on this day religions exercises shall be conducted in the churches or meeting houses of ail denominations, :n order that in the social features of the day its real significance may not be lost sight of, but fervent prayers may be offered to the Most High for a continuance of the divine guidance without which man's efforts are In vain, and for divine consolation to those whose kindred and friends have sacrificed their live3 for country. "I recommend also that on this day so far as may be found practical, la bor shall cease from its accustomed toil and charity abound toward the sick, the needy and the poor. "In witness whereof, I have set mf hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

State News. There are now no colored troops tn North Carolina. There was one com pany at Charlotte, but when it was mustered out of the regular army at the close of the Spanish-American war it was not reinstated in the State Guard. This was done In conformity to the following, from an act passed by the last legislature entitled, "An act to establish and provide for the militia and for the support and maintenance of the State Guard." Section I. That section 2 be amended to read, as fol lows: That the white and colored mil itia shall be separately enrolled, but shall never be compelled to serve in the same organization; provided, that no organization of colored troops shall be permitted while white troops arc available, and that when permitted to be organized, colored tropj shall be under the command of white officers." This clearly shuts out any colored companies from the State guard. The State is to be well repres"nte1 at the Paris exposition, according to a Raleigh correspondent.
