alaska boundary.

In view of the wide divergence of views existing on the subject of the Alaska-Canadian Boundary, the Dominion Government fear that the suggestion to proceed with the demarcation under the convention of 1892 would lead to no result. They are however prepared to agree that a provisional line should be fixed, without prejudice to the claims of either party, at the watershed at the first summit north of Dyea. Such provisional boundary would be at a distance from the coast of considerably more than 10 leagues.
