It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Entered according to Act of Parliament of Canada, 
by Arnott James Magurn, in the office of the 
Minister of Agriculture, in the year 1898. 



The Parlianient:ary Guide, and Work of General Reference, is the 
first book of the kind ever published in Canada, and depends for one 
of its chief recommendations on its accuracy and reliability. The 
material has been collected at first hand from official and personal 
sources. The Customs Tariff is absolutely reliable, as it stood October 
Ist, 1898. The summary of the public legislation of the Federal Par- 
liament will be continued from year to year, and form a tolerably com- 
plete index to all the statutes of general interest, and will be found of 
no small value to public men, newspaper editors, lawyers and others. 
In the preparation of some of the biographical sketches reference has 
been made to Morgan's Canadian Men and Women of the Time, 
Rose's Cyclopedia of Canadian Biography, G. Mercer Adam's " Prom- 
inent Men of Canada," Pierre Roy's Sketches of the Quebec Legisla- 
ture, and Cochrane's '* Men of Canada." 

The community of interest between Canada and Newfoundland, and 
the fact that it is the only British possession in North America outside 
of Canada, are sufficient reasons for devoting a chapter to Newfound- 
land and its legislature. In this connection acknowledgment of the 
services of Mr. P.J. McGrath, of St. John's Nfd., is made. 

Bmpire events find a congenial place in such a work, and those 
desiring a record of such happenings as the Colonial Conferences of 
London, and the Australian Federation Movement, will approve of 
their publication here, in view of the fact that they are to be found in 
a permanent form nowhere else. 

It will be the aim of the compiler to make this a book of dates as 
well as of facts and figures. There is no enquiry so often made as the 
question of dates, for once that is answered it is easy to know where 
to look for particulars of a certain event. 

The resolutions of the Dominion Liberal Convention of 1893 are 
published here, for the reason that the official report of the convention 
is out of print and cannot be had, though often required. 

The B. N. A. Acts are accessible to very lew, and their incorpora- 
tion here will be found of great value. The Franchise Act, which is 
printed in full, is a copy of the statute, and to all those having to do 
with the preparation of voters' lists and elections, it will prove a valu- 
able reference. 

Especial care has been taken in the preparation of the several 
hundred biographical sketches contained in this volume, and the 
editor alone is responsible for the statements in theM, and for the 
political leanings assigned to each subject, authority having been ob- 
tained, however, in the majority of cases. 

137 Kennedy Street, Winnipeg, Man., 
November ist, 1898 


In the biographical sketches certain well-known abbreviations 
have been used, such as b. (born;, m. (married), s. (son), d. (daugh- 
ter), el. (elected), v. p. (vice-president), and a few others that are 
generally understood, like C. for Conservative and L. for Liberal. 
As all the sketches are arranged alphabetically no index is required. 
The post office addresses of legislators will be found, alphabetically 
arranged, immediately preceding the sketches of the members of 
each Legislature. 

On page 366, for ** Colonial Conference, 1898," read 1897, and in 
first line for '* August 25, 1898," read August 26, 1897.

Confederation came about in British Columbia entirely different to that in 
the other provinces in the Dominion. The fathers of Confederation, as the early 
pioneers who engineered the confederation of the province are called, had many 
difllculties to contend with, for many of the colonists were ever to the front 
with claims of advantage in remaining apart. There were local irritations, pro- 
vincial prejudices and weighty obligations to make good. Then again the 
Crown Colony of British Columbia was far removed geographically from the 
seat of Canadian Government, but there were amalgamation movements going 
forward on the American side of the line, and if British Columbia was going 
to remain British it seemed that confederation was the only counter force to 
resist the growing feeling for annexation with the United States. The popula- 
tion of the colony was largely British born, with not a few Americans Inter- 
spersed. The country, in its physical configurations, its resources, its require- 
ments, was in every sense foreign to Canada. Communication and trade was 
almost wholly with the Pacific Coast and Great Britain, and sympathies fol- 
lowed to a considerable extent in the line of trade and travel. As can then be 
plainly seen, confederation was not brought about by sentimentalism. British 
Columbia was at that time heavily in debt, the liabilities being $1,500,000 for 
about 10,000 white people. The after effects of the Cariboo gold excitement 
were being experienced. Prosperity had vanished, times were depressed, money 
was scarce and no prospects were ahead. The true feeling at the time of con- 
federation was love of Canada; not for what she was, but for what she could 
do for them. The people soon saw the advantages to be gained. With a rail- 
way from Halifax to the Pacific they would be in a most important position, 
both geographically and commercially, a position which, should they annex 
themselves to the United States, would always be second to California, but In 
confederation second to none. Therefore the prime movement in confederation 
was a railway, and direct comunication with the East. 

This was given to them by the Canadian Government. When the agreement signed, the Canadian Government agreed to begin the building of a 3.000 
mile railway within two years, $100,000 a year in lieu of lands to be given for 
the railway in question, 80 cents per head on a population computed at 60,000 ; 
deliverance from a debt of $1,500,000 ; $600,000 for a dry dock at Esquimau ; 
superannuation of ofllcials ; $35,000 a year in support of the Qovemment ; 5 per 
cent, per annum on the difference between the debt and that of Nova Scotia 
and New Brunswick, pro rata of the population; Indians to be cared for by the 
Dominion, and nine representatives at Ottawa, three Senators and six members 
in the House of Commons. In lieu of this the Province gave up the land inclu- 
ded in the railway belt and customs and excise revenues. These terms were 
subsequently modified, to some extent, favorably to the Province, but none in 
any essential repect. 

The memorable debate in the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia on 
the subject of confederation with Canada began on March 9th, 1870, when the 
then Attorney-General (now Sir Henry P. P. Crease) rose and moved, "That this 
Council do now resolve itself into a committee of the whole to take into con- 
sideration the terms proposed for the confederation of the Colony of British 
Columbia with the Dominion of Canada in His Excellency's message to this 
Council." The debate lasted three days, and nine days were spent discussing 
the details in committee. Among the speakers who took part were. Attorney 
General Crease. Dr. J. S. Helmcken, Amor de Cosmos, Thomas Humphreys. 
M. W. T. Drake, John Robson, Joseph Trutch, Henry Holbrook, T. L. Wood, 
F. J. Barnard, R. W. W. Carrall, E. Dewdney, and G. A. Walkem. At the 


Close of the debate the following committee: Messrs. Helmsken, Carrall and 
Trutcb, were chosen to go to Ottawa to confer with the Dominion GoYemmenr. 
Thej left on May 10th, 1870, by way of San Francisco. The agreement, the 
terms of which are stated above, was made on July 7th, 1870. 

An election was held in November, confederation being the main issue. 
The new Council met on January 5th, 1871. Dr. Helmcken was nominated us 
Speaker, but declined. The terms of confederation as agreed upon were passed 
unanimouly, and an address was presented to His Excellency the Goyemor, 
praying that Her Majesty would be graciously pleased to admit British Co- 
lombia, under the proYisions of the North American Act, into the Dominion of 

Responsible goYemment was of course a natural consequence of confeder- 
ation, and the Bill was introduced in the Council on the 31st of January, 1871, 
to give power to alter the constitution of British Columbia. The Bill was adop- 
ted on February 6th. The first election under the new constitution took place 
in October, 1871. Hon. Joseph Trutch was then Lieut. -Governor. Hon. J. F. 
(now Judge) MeCrcight being called upon to form the first administration 
tmder its rulings. He was Premier and Attorney General. In the winter of 1872 
a vote of want of confidence in the Government was passed. Mr. McCreight 
and his colleagues resigned, and Hon. Amor de Cosmos was called upon to form 
a ministry. Thus it will be seen that the form of government In British Co- 
lumbia is, saving that there is no upper house, similar to that of Canada and 
Great Britain.

Members of the Assembly residing in St. John's receive $200 each as sess- 
ional allowance; for those residing In other parts of the colony it Is Increased 
to $800 each. The strength of the parties In the Assembly now Is : 23 Consenra- 


tives, or Govemmeiit members ; 8 Liberals, or Oppositionists, and 5 Independ- 
ents, the latter having broken from the regular Opposition on the matter of the 
railway arrangement with Mr. R. G. Held, ratified in 1898. 

A Representative Assembly was first granted to this Colony in 1832, under 
the (Governorship of Sir Thomas Cochrane. By the Constitution nine Districts 
were established, returning 15 members, who. were to hold their seats during 
Her Majesty's pleasure. In 1836 the members of the Assembly were elected for 
four yoars, and this term has been adhered to since that date. 

In 1854, upon the granting of responsible government, the number of mem- 
bers was increased, at the instance of the Imperial Government, to 30. In 1874 
the membership was further increased to 31, by the addition of one member to 
the number of those representing the District of Twillingate and Fogo. 

In 1882 the number of members was increased to 33, by the erection of St. 
George and St. Barbe into Districts, with one member each. In 1885, after the 
publication of the census of 1884, a partial re-distribution took place. The Dis- 
trict of Twillingate and Fogo was divided, Twillingate retaining three members, 
Fogo was given one. Bay-de-Verd, which was made to include a part of Trin- 
ity District, was allowed an additional member, as was also Harbor Grace. 
These alterations Increased the number of members to 36.

It is deemed advisable to draw the attention of exporters to the fact that 
the Customs laws of Canada provide severe penalties for the making of false 
invoices and certificates whereby the Customs Revenue shall or may be de- 
frauded. In such cases, the goods are liable to forfeiture, and the exporter 
making such fraudulent invoice or certificate, as well as the Importer using 
them, is subject to heavy pecuniary penalties in addition to the forfeiture of 
the goods. Exporters are, therefore, advised and cautioned to use every care in 
furnishing true and correct invoices and certificates for goods shipped to 

Attention is directed to the following requirements of the Canadian Cus- 
toms Laws :— 

1. Every Invoice of goods imported into Canada shall be certified in w^rlt- 
ing as correct by the person, firm or corporation selling or consigning the goods, 
and shall truly show the whole and actual value of the goods In the currency 
of the country whence tfie goods have been exported directly to Canada, and 
the quantity and description of such goods, and the marks and numbers on the 
packages, in such a manner as to indicate truly the quantites and values of 
the articles comprised in each exportation package, all of which packages shall 
be legibly marked and number^ on the outside when of such a character as to 
enable such marks and numbers to be placed thereon. 

2. If invoices are made out at lower prices for goods exported directly to 
Canada than the fair market value at the same time) and place for such goods 
when sold for home consumption in the country whence so exported, in all such 
cases the Invoices are also to show clearly, in a special column, or by an addi- 
tion thereto, such fair market value, as aforesaid, for the goods described 

Exporters will note particularly that a separate invoice must be furnished 
for goods entitled to entry under the Preferential Tariff and that the certificates 
required must be written, printed or stamped on the invoice, and also that the 
Preferential Tariff does not apply to any of the following articles, viz. : Wines, 
malt liquors, spirits, spirituous liquors, liquid medicines and articles containing

A fisheries conference between representatives of Canada and the Provinces 
of Ontario and Quebec was held at Ottawa, June 22, 1898. Canada was repre- 
sented by the Minister of Marine and Fisheries, Sir Louis Davles, and the Min- 
ister of Justice, Mr. Mills ; Ontario, by the Premier and Attorney-General, the 
Hon. A. S. Hardy and Mr. Aemllius Irving, Q.C. ; Quebec, by the Hon. P. G. 
Marchand, Premier ; the Hon. S. N. Parent, Commissioner of Lands, Forosta 
and Fisheries, and the Hon. F. G. M. Dechene, Commissioner of Agriculture. 
The latter were assisted by Messrs. Machin, Assistant Treasurer ; Cannon, As- 
sistant Attorney-General, and Joncas, a fisheries official. 

The question of the ownership of the lakes, rivers and foreshores of the 
country, and of the fish therein, and of the right to lease, license and regulate 
fiehing privileges and fish, was submitted to the Supreme Court a few years 
ago, and the case taken to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, which 
announced its findings May 26, 1898. (Reported in the Times, May 27.) 

The results of the conference may be summarized : The sole and exclusive 
power of making regulations with reference to fishing, the times, seasons, and 
manner, belong to the Dominion, and any regulations on the subject affecting 
the time for fishing or the manner, made by the provinces are void. 

The right heretofore exercised by the Dominion of 'leasing defined areas to 
fishermen for pound-net licenses, or salmon stands, or for other fishing pur- 
poses. Is ultra vires of the Dominion because it interferes with the jurisdiction 
of the provinces, and hereafter these rights will be exercised by the govern- 
ments of the respective provinces of Canada. The question as to whether 
Ontario and Quebec have any claim against the Dominion for refund of money 
already received by the Dominion for these licenses in the way of fees was. 
discussed, but no agreement come to. The matter was allowed to stand over 
for further consideration, but the department at Ottawa does not admit that 
there is any ground whatever for such claim. 

Both authorities have the right, for the purposes of revenue, to levy a tax 
by waflT of a license fee, the provinces in order to raise a revenue and tha 
Dominion under its general taxing power. It was, therefore, agreed that the 
Dominion would not grant any further licenses for the year 1898. This refers 
chiefly to pound-net licenses and salmon stands. The provincial governments 
will confirm and ratify the leases already granted by the Dominion this year. 
•Applications which have been already made to the department at Ottawa will 
be forwarded to the provincial governments and dealt with by them. 

Officers to be appointed for the enforcement of the regulations hereafter to 
be made by the Dominion will probably be appointed by the provinces. While 
the Dominion will continue to frame regulations for the control of the fisheries, 
it will, in all probability, leave the enforcement of these regulations to the pro- 
vincial governments, with the exception of Inland waters and lakes of a com- 
mercial or international character. 

The control of public oyster beds remains in the Dominion, because of the 
power to determine the close seasons, but the leasing of private oyster beds for 
the propagation of the oyster passes to the provincial governments exclusively. 


The legal weights and measures of Canada are the Imperial yard, Imperial 
pound avoirdupois. Imperial gallon (of 277.27384 cubic inches), and the Imperial 
bushel. The Imperial gallon is equal to 4.54174 .litres, while the wine gallon, 
used in the United States, is equal to 3.7S5 litres. 

By Act 42nd Vic. (1879), Chap. 16 (amended by Cap. 30, Acts of 1898) it is 
provided : That in contracts for sale and delivery of any of the under- 
mentioned articles the bushel should be determined by weighing, unless a 
bushel measure be specially agreed upon, the weight equivalent to a bushel 
being as follows :— 

Wheat 60 lbs. Castor Beans 40 lbs. 

Indian Cottl ! 56 " Potatoes 60 '* 

Rye 56 " Turnips / 60 " 

Pease 60 " Carrots 60 *'

♦Changed from 50 to 56 lbs. by Act of Parliament, 1898. **Changed from 60 
to 50 lbs. by Act of Parliament, 1898. ♦•♦Added by Act of 1898. 

By the same Act the British hundredweight of 112 pounds and the ton of 
2,240 pounds were abolished, and the hundredweight was declared to be 100 
pounds and the ton 2,000 pounds avoirdupois, thus assimilating the weights of 
Canada and the United States.

The official report of the Liberal Convention, which met in Ottawa, June 20, 
1893, being out of print, the resolutions adopted by the Convention are repro- 
duced here as follows :—. 

Wc the Liberal Party of Canada, in convention assembled, declare : 

1. That the customs tariff of the Dominion should be based, not as it is 
now, upon the protective principle, but upon the requirements of the public ser- 
vice ; That the existing tariff, founded ui>on an unsound principle, and used, as 
it has been by the Government, as a corrupting agency wherewith to keep them- 
selves in office, has developed monopolies, trusts and combinations ; It has de- 
creased the value of farm and other landed property ; It has oppressed the mass- 
es to the enrichment of a few ; It has checked .immigration ; It has caused 
gre«t loss of population; It has impeded commerce; It has discriminated against 
Great Britain. In these and in many other ways it has occasioned great public 
and private injury, all of which evils must continue to grow in intensity as long 
as the present tariff system remains in force. That the highest interests of Can- 
ada demand a removal of this obstacle to our country's progress, by the adop- 
tion of a sound fiscal policy, which, while not doing injustice to any class, wiU 
promote domestic and foreign trade, and hasten the return of prosperity to our 
people ; That to that end, the tariff should be reduced to the needs of honest, 
economical and efficient government ; That it should be so adjusted as to make 
free, or to bear as lightly as possible upon, the necessaries of life, and should 
be so arranged as to promote freer trade with the whole world, more particu- 
larly with Great Britain and the United States. We believe that the ' results of 
the protective system have greviously disappointed thousands of persons who 
honestly supported it, and that the country, in the light of experience, is now 
prepared to declare for a sound fiscal policy. The issue between the two politi- 
cal parties on this question is now clearly defined. The Government themselves 
admit the failure of their fiscal policy, and now profess their willingness to 
make some changes ; but they say that such changes must be based only on 
the principle of protection. We denounce the principle of protection as radical- 
ly unsound, and unjust to the masses of the people, and we declare our con- 
viction that any tariff changes based on that principle must fail to afford any 
substantial relief from the burdens under which the country labors. This issue 
we unhesitatingly accept, and upon it we await with the fullest confidence the 
verdict of the electors of Canada. 

2. That, having regard to the prosperity of Canada and the United States 
as adjoining countries, with many mutual interests, it is desirable that there 
should be the most friendly relations and broad and liberal trade intercourse 
between them ; That the interests alike of the Dominion and of the Empire 
would be materially advanced by the establishing of such relations ; That the 
period of the old reciprocity treaty was one of marked prosperity to the British 
North American colonies ; That the pretext under which the Government ap- 
pealed to the country in 1891 respecting negotiation for a treaty with the United 
States was misleading and dishonest and intended to deceive the electorate ; 
That no sincere effort has been made by them to obtain a treaty, but that, on 
the contrary, it is manifest that the present Government controlled as they 
are by monopolies and combines, are not desirous of securing such a treaty ; 
That the first step towards obtaining the end in view, is to place a party in 
power who are sincerely desirous of promoting a treaty on terms honorable to 
both countries ; That a fair and liberal reciprocity treaty would develop the 
great natural resources of Canada, would enormously increase the trade and 
commerce between the two countries, would tend to encourage friendly rela- 


tions between the two peoples, would remove many pauses which have in the 
past provoked irritation and trouble to the Governments of both countries, and 
would promote those kindly relations between the Empire and the Republic 
which afford the best guarantee for peace and prosperity ; That the Liberal 
party is prepared to enter into negotiations with a view to obtaining such a 
treaty, includirig a well considered list of manufactured articles, and we are 
satisfied that any treaty so arranged will receive the assent of Her Majesty's 
Government, without whose approval no treaty can be made. 

2. That the Convention deplores the gross corruption in the management 
and expenditure of public moneys which for years past has existed under the 
rule of the Conservative party, and the revelations of which by the different 
parliaraentary committees of inquiry have brought disgrace upon the fair name 
of Canada. The Government, .which profited politically by these expenditures of 
public moneys of which the people have been defrauded, and which, neverthe- 
less, have never punished the guilty parties, must be held responsible for the 
wrongdoing. We arraign the Gov'ernment for retaining in office a Minister of 
the Crown proved to have accepted -very large contributions of money for •lec- 
tion purposes from the funds of a railway company, which, while paying the 
political contributions to him, a member of the Government, with one hand, was 
receiving Government subsidies with the other. The conduct of the Minister 
and the approval of his colleagues after the proof became known to them are 
calculated to degrade Canada in the estimation of the world and deserve the 
severe condemnation of the people. 

4. We cannot but view with alarm the large increase of the public debt and 
of the controllable annual expenditure of the Dominion and the conaeauent un- 
due taxation of the people under the (Governments that have been continue isly 
in power since 1878, and we demand the strictest economy in the adniinistration 
of the government of the country. 

5. That the Convention regrets that by the action of Ministers and their 
supporters in Parliament, in one case in which serious charged were made 
against a Minister of the Crown, investigation was altogether refused, while in 
another case the charges preferred were altered and then referred to a commis- 
sion appointed upon the advice of the Ministry, contrary to the well settled 
practice of Parliament; and this Convention affirms : That it is the ancient and 
undoubted right of the House of Commons to inquire into all matters of public 
expenditure, and into all charges of misconduct in office against Ministers of the 
Crown, and the reference of such matters to royal commissions created upon 
the advice of the accused is at variance with the due responsibility of Ministers 
to the House of Commons, and tends to weaken the authority of the House over 
the Executive Government, and this Convention affirms that the powers of the 
people's representatives in this regard should on all fitting occasions be upheld. 

6. That in the opinion of this Convention the sales of public lands of the 
Dominion should be to actual settlers only, and not to speculators, upon rea- 
sonable terms of settlement, and in such areas as can be reasonably occulted 
and cultivated by the settler. 

7. That the Franchise Act since its introduction has cost the Dominion 
Treasury over a million of dollars, besides entailing a heavy expenditure ,to 
both political parties ; That each revision involves an additional expenditure oh 
a further quarter of a million ; That this expenditure has prevented an annual 
revision, as originally intended, in the absence of which young voters entitled 
to the franchise have, in numerous instances, been prevented from exercising 
their natural rights ; That it has failed to secure uniformity, which was the 
principal reason assigned for its introduction ; That it has produced gross 
abuses by partisan revising barristers appointed by the Government of the day ; 



That its provisions are less liberal than those already existing tn many Pro- 
vinces of the Dominion, and that in the opinion of this Convention the Act- 
should be repealed, and we should revert to the Provincial Franchise. 

8. That by the Gerrymander Acts, the electoral divisions for the return of 
members to the House of Commons have been so made as to prevent a fair 
expression of the opinion of the country at the general elections, and to secure 
to the party now in power a strength out of all proportion greater than the-' 
number of electors supporting them would warrant. To put an end to this 
abuse, to make the House of Commons a fair exponent of public, opinion, and 
to preserve the historic continuity of counties, it is desirable that in the forma- 
tion of electoral divisions, county boundaries should be preserved, and that in 
no case parts of different counties should be put in one electoral division. 

9. The present constitution of the Senate is inconsistent with the Federal 
principle in our system of government, and is in other respects defective, as it 
makes the Senate independent of the people and uncontrolled by the public 
opinion of the country, and should be so amended as to bring it into harmony 
with the principles of popular government. 

10. That whereas public attention is at present much directed to the con-' 
sideration of the admittedly great evils of intemperance, it is desirable that the 
mind of the people should be clearly ascertained on the question of Prohibition 
by means of a Dominion plebiscite. 


statement of the Poeitiqii of AfTairs re the Boundary Between Canada and 
Alaska. October 1. 1898. 

In the year 1867 the Russian possessions in North America passed, by pur- 
chase, into the hands of the United States. 

The eastern boundary of the purchased territory now known as Alaska had 
been defined by a treaty between Great Britain and Russia, entered into at St. 
Petersburg in 1825. To this treaty, therefore, we must look for a description of 
the boundary between Alaska and the adjoining: territory which comprises the 
Province of British Columbia as to the southern portion of the line, and the 
Northwest Territories as to the northern. 

The Articles of the Treaty at St. Petersburg, which especially deal with the 
line of demarcation are Nos. Ill and IV, which read as follows :— 

III. The line of demarcation between the possessions of the high contract- 
ing parties upon the coast of the continent and the islands of America to the 
northwest, shall be drawn in the manner following :— 

Commencing from the southernmost point of the island called Prince cf 
Wales Island, which point lies in the parallel of 54 degrees, 40 minutes, north 
latitude, and between the ISlst and the 133rd degree of west longitude (meri- 
dian of Greenwich), the said line shall ascend to the north along the channel 
called Portland Channel, as far as the point of the continent, where it strikes 
the 56th degree of north latitude ; from this last-mentioned point, the line of 
demarcation shall follow the summit of the mountains situated parallel to the 
coast, as far as the point of intersection of the 141st degree of west longitude 
(of the same meridian) ; and, finally, from the said point of intersection, the 
said meridian line of the 141st degi*ee, in its prolongation as far as the frozen 
ocean, shall form the limit between the Russian and British possessions on the 
continent of America to the northwest. 

IV. With reference to the line of demarcation laid down in the preceding 
article, it is understood :— 

• 1st. That the island called Prince of Wales Island shall belong wholly to 

2nd. That wherever the summit of the mountains which extend in a direc- 
tion parallel to the coast, from the 56th degree of north latitude to the point 
of intersection of the 141st degree of west longitude, shall prove to be at the 
distance of more than ten marine leagues from the ocean, the limit between 
the British possessions and the line of coast which Is to belong to Russia, as 
above mehtloned, shall be formed by a line parallel to the windings of the 
coast, and which shall never exceed the distance of ten marine leagues there- 

The line thus described has not yet been traced out or marked on the 
ground. This was not necessary so long as the business of the coast was of a 
local character, such as the fur trade, the fisheries, etc., and communication 
with the interior was had only by Indians engaged In hunting or Inter-trlbal 
trade. In respect of such traffic the high and rugged mountainous region ad- 
jacent to the coast was a sulficlent mark without a close definition of summits. 
• The development of mining In the Interior has altered the case by directing a 
considerable traffic from the sea ports to the Interior water stretches, whence 
arises danger of complications in the enforcement of (ustoms regulations, and 
in respect of criminal and civil jurisdiction generally. 



As an instance of this may be cited a case which occurred so long ago as 
1876, on the Stiklne River, which, In the lower part of its course, flows through 
United States territory, when a prisoner in charge of a Canadian constable 
assaulted him and made his escape. Being afterwards recaptured and tried In 
Victoria for the assault, he pleaded that the assault was committed in United 
States territory. This directed attention to the boundary question, and, in 1877, 
Mr. Joseph Hunter, on behalf of the Canadian Government, made a survey of 
the lower Stikine and made a provisional determination, pending the final set- 
tlement by an international commission, of the point where the boundary line, 
under the treaty, should cross the river. 

Later on, the discovery of rich placers near the point where the 141st meri- 
dian crossed the Yukon River, at Forty-Mile and Sixty-Mile Creeks, rendered 
necessary Mr. Ogilvie's provisional survey in that region, and at the present 
time much attention is being directed to the question of the undetermlnteH 
boundary at Lynn Canal, with reference to the routes thence to the Yukon— 
Ohilkoot and White Passes and the Dalton Trail from Chilkat Inlet. 

For an understanding of the questions involved in the determination of the 
boundary line at these places, as well as along the whole extent of the con- 
tiguous territory of Canada and the United States in the north, it may be well 
to point out that the boundary line defined by the treaty is naturally divided 
into two parts, to be determined according to different principles. The firstj 
part extends from the southernmost point of Prince of Wales Island to a cer- 
tain point of the continent, thence along the summit of the mountains to the 
141st meridian, subject to the proviso of Article IV of the Treaty of St. Peters- 
burg. This is a boundary which is to be laid down according to natural fea- 
tures and without dependence upon latitude or longitude, except as to its ter- 
minal point, 141 deg. west longitude. The second part is a meridian of longi- 
tude, not depending in any way upon natural features, but to ba laid down by 
scientific processes of astronomy and land surveying. 

To begin with the second part, there is, with regard to it, no possibility of 
dispute as to the meaning of the treaty. It should be the meridian of 141 deg. 
longitude west from Greenwich. The only difficulty is the practical one of lay- 
ing down this longitude line with the precision necessary. The usual method 
of laying down such a line is to fix one point of it by astronomical observa- 
tions for longitude, and thence to produce the meridian line north and south 
with the transit theodolite. Observations for longitude are needed at but one 
point, except in the event of the interruption of the line surveying by moun- 
tains or other insuperable obstacles. Astronomical observations of another 
kind are, however, taken at frequent Intervals along the survey to check its 
direction and hold It to its accurate north and south course, and points can thus 
be laid down in the same longitude as the initial astronomical station with 
greater precision than the absolute longitude of the latter can be determined. 

The determination of the longitude of a point consists In the determination 
of the difference of local time between it and Greenwich or some other point 
whose difference of time from Greenwich Is already known. The process con- 
sists In determining the local time at the place by sfctronomical observation, 
and then comparing this time with the local time at Greenwich or other stan- 
dard station. The readiest mode of comparing the times of two stations Is the 
exchange of signals by the electric telegraph where this is available, and this 
method is the most accurate known. But where) the telegraph Is not available, 
other means must be resorted to, such as the carrying of chronometers or the 
noting at each station of the Instant of some visible occurrence, such as a flash 
of gunpowder (only avatlable, of course, at short distances), an eclipse of thf 


sun or moon or of a satellite of Jupiter, or the occultation of a star by the 
passage over it of the moon's disk. The chronometric method is probal)ly the 
next In accuracy to that by telegraph, but it is not available inland where the 
chronometers are liable to rough usage in carriage. The readiest method in 
such a case as that under consideration, far inland and away from the tele- 
graphs, is the method by transits of the moon. This method is, in principle, 
the same as the direct method of exchange of time by signals, but that the 
moon serves at the same time as the pignjil 0Dser«7»,«d and as a record of the 
Greenwich time. The observer determines his local lime, and at th« »ame time 
determines the position of the moon in the heavtns vith reference to ihe stars. 
The fixed stars have an apparent motion in the sky from east to west, due to 
the diurnal revolution of the earth, but retain their apparent positions rela- 
tive to each other. The moon, while partaking with the stars in the apparent 
diurnal motion, has at the same time a monthly rotation of its own about the 
earth, by which it travels from west to east, continually changing its plao^ 
with regard to the stars, making a complete circuit of the sidereal heavens in 
rather more than twenty-seven days. Now the movement of the moon in its 
orbit depends upon the known attractions of the sun, earth and planets, and its 
path among the stars can be computed beforehand, and is so computed for ^ 
number of years ahead and its position for each hour of every day is tabulated 
in the various nautical almanacs. Hence the observer who finds that the moon 
was in a certain place at a certain instant of his own local time, has but to 
refer to his almanac to find the Greenwich time at which the moon should be 
in that place. A direct comparison of the local time with the Greenwich lime 
is thus obtained. The difference is his longitude. The accuracy of the lunar 
method is less than that of the direct method by signals, for while an error of, 
say, a quarter of a second in estimating the time of the electric tap, or the 
flash of the artificial signal, makes an error of one-quarter of a second in the 
difference of time, and therefore in the longitude ; an error of one-quarter of a 
second in determining the moon's position, i.e., if the moon's time of transit 
over the observer's meridian is noted one-quarter of a second too soon or too. 
late, the error in the longitude will be twenty-seven times as great, i.e., nearly 
seven seconds, for the moon, making the circuit of the stars in 27 days, has a 
motion relative to the stars one-twenty-seventh of their apparent diurnal mo- 
tion, by which the astronomer determines his time. 

By lunar observations, Mr. Ogilvie, on behalf of the Canadian Government, 
in the winter of 1887-88, determined a point on the Yukon River in longitude 
141 deg. The place was visited in 1889 by Mr. McGrath, of the U. S. Coast and 
Geodetic Survey, who also, during two winters, took a number of lunar obser- 
vations. His result is reported to agree with Mr. Ogilvie 's within about 610 
feet, which is equivalent to rather more than nine-tenths of a second of 

In view of the fact stated above, that an error in the moon's place Is multi- 
plied by 27 in the longitude, the accordance is very close. Of course, the result 
given by each observer does not depend upon a single observation, but upon 
many, and the accidental errors of individual observations by a well-known 
law tends to correct one another in the mean of the individual results. 

In the same years, 1889 to 1891, Mr. Turner, of the U. S. Coast and Geo- 
detic Survey, determined the point where the 141st meridian crosses the Porcu- 
pine River. No Canadian observer has yet visited this point. 

The mining population of the Yukon District increasing as the news of the 
rich deposits spread, Inspector Constantino, of the North- West Mounted Police, 
accompanied by Sergeant Brown, was sent in 1894 to ascertain the facts in the 


case, and the best means of making efficient provision for the enforcement of 
law in the district and the protection of the revenue. The necessity of ac- 
tion in this regard becoming apparent, a force of Mounted Police was sent to 
the district in the following year (1895). The greater part of the mining being 
at the time on the tributaries of Forty-Mile and Sixty-Mile Creeks, close to the 
141st meridian, it became necessary for the purpose of administration that a 
definition of the line in this neighborhood should be had. This work was en- 
trusted to Mr. Ogilvie, who returned to the Yukon in the summer of 1895, un- 
der instructions to perform also such surveying as might be necessary in con- 
nection with mining and land claims. In the following winter Mr. Ogilvie sur- 
veyed and marked out the meridian for about five miles north from his astro- 
nomical station of 1887-88 on the Yukon River and fifty-five miles south from it 
to a point near Sixty-Mile Creek, an extent of line sufficient for existing re- 
quirements. At the time Mr. Ogilvie was sent out, the United States Govern- 
ment had been asked to co-operate in the survey, so as to make the resulting 
determination final for international purposes, as Mr. Ogilvie' s work, withotit 
such international agreement, would, of course be merely provisional, as was 
Mr. Hunter's work on the Stikine. The United States Government, however, 
declined to co-operate at the time, expressing a preference for a joint survey of 
the whole of the 141st meridian. A convention accordingly, providing for a joint 
siirvey of the line from the mountains overlooking the Pacific to the Arctic 
Ocean^ was agreed to in January, 1897, by Her Majesty's Ambassador at Wash- 
ington and the Secretary of State of th.e United States, and was submitted to 
the United States Senate for ratification. The Senate, however, has not yet 
ratified the convention, and the matter is at a standstill. No portion, of the line 
has been surveyed other than that surveyed by Mr. Ogllvfe, as above stated, in 
the winter of 1895-1896. 

The other portion of the Alaska boundary, that between the southernmost 
point of Prince of Wales Island and the 141st meridian, remains to be dis- 
cussed. We have not now to deal with a line depending upon latitude or longi- 
tude which can be laid down by scientific processes, with a degree of pre- 
cision only limited by the care taken and the time expended upon the work.. 
The location of this boundary depends upon natural features as described in a 
written instrument, and cannot be established so long as any difPerences of in- 
terpretation of the treaty remain unsettled. Very wide differences do in fa^t 
exist, and while it is not possible, at the present stage of the negotiations be- 
tween the Governments, to present fully here various arguments which have 
been set up on behalf of divergent views, it is proposed to state briefly the main 
points upon which controversy may turn when the claims which may be formu- 
lated by the Governments come before a tribunal for adjudication. 

It may be premised that the question is somewhat complicated by the fact 
that the United States are in actual occupation of the coast ; settlements have 
been formed by their citizens on debatable territory, and their ofilcials have, in 
some instances, pushed their jurisdiction to the farthest limit which the United 
States could claim under an extreme interpretation of the treaty. 

The point of commencement of the boundary by treaty is the southernmost 
point of Prince of Wales Island. There seems no difficulty in identifying this 
island from the recorded latitude and longitude of its southernmost point with 
the assistance of the charts in existence at the time of the treaty negotiations. 
An exploration of the coast and the adjacent archipelago had been made by 
Captain Vancouver, 1793 and 1794, and his charts have been proved by recent 
surveys to be remarkably accurate as to the principal natural features. The 
wide range of longitude, 131 deg. to 133 deg., is given to include the two south- 


em promonotorles called by Vancouver Capes Muzon and Chacon, both of -whicli 
lie nearly in latitude 54 deg., 40 min.' but until recently it waa pot known that 
Muzon extends a little further south than Chacon. Vancouver did not explore 
the archipelago sufficiently to ascertain all the channels among the islands, and 
on his chart he shows a mass of land terminating in the two capes above 
named, and calls it Prince of Wales " archipelago." Later surveys slio^v that 
this conjecture is in accordance with the facts, and that there are several 
islands, including two principal ones, the smaller and more westerly of which. 
now known as Dall Island, terminates in Cape Muzon, while the large Island 
retains the name Prince of Wales. This island is to be distinguished from 
"Wales" Island, situated aFthe entrance to Portland Inlet. 

From the point of commencement the line " shall ascend to the north 
along the channel called Portland Channel, as far as the point of the continent 
where it strikes the 56th degree of north latitude." The question here arises as 
to whether Portland " Channel " is to be identified with Vancouver's Portland 
" Canal." The difficulties are that the entranc
