With regard to the rivers fienti'on-j ed. he went on to say: "The St. Mary's river rises in Mon- tana and flows into Alberta, and emp- ties into the south branch of the Sas- katchewan river. The Milk also rises in Montana and flows into Canada for a distance of about one hundred miles, almost parallel to the boundary, and flows back..again into the United States. The St. Mary's river is not a large stream compara- tively, but is' much larger .than the Milk river. This treaty, if it comes into force will join them, that is, power is given under the treaty to join the two rivers into one stream which will flow together in the bed of the Milk river and enter the Unit- ed States.
