Tbe hon. gentleman's description covers tbe objection I might otherwise have made. At the southerly point he makes the boundary the United States territory of Alaska. I should have objected to laying down a line which might give the solemn affirmation of an Act of parliament to a fixed point, and might so interfere with negotiations afterwards. I see that he has carefully avoided that.
