THE ALASKAN BOUNDARY.
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
"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
"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
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,

For Profound Thanksgiving.
Fire at Bingham School.
Asheville, N. C, Special. Fire was
discovered Tuesday morning at 8 o'
clock in one section of the barracks of
Bingham school. The cadets formed a
bucket brigade and got the flames un
der control after five rooms toad been
gutted. No one was hurt. The school
will not be interrupted. The loss- is
about $3,000, fully covered by insur
ance. The fire was caused by a defec
tive flue. .
Washington, D. C, Special. The
President Wednesday issued the fol
lowing Thanksgiving proclamation:
"By the President of the United
"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
"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.
"Done at the city of Washington

of the United States the 124th.

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.
