The government of Venezuela is providing itself With modern armament, and,'ainbng.other supplies, has ordered 10 improved Maxim guns from the British firm which manufactures them. The order was placed through a New 1 Yotk firm, and the English house, it is supposed, does not know the destination of the goods. At the same time the syndicate of United States capitalists, which has secured concessions in the Venezuelan gold lands claimed by Great Britain, is preparing to send a latge f of ce of prospectors, miners and workmen into the Orinoco Company 1 * Position. William H. Stafford, counsel for the Orinoco company, the American syndi* cate, made plain the position assumed by the Orinoco company. "The company," said he, "proposes to work its concessions without delay. It will send prospectors along the line of the Imataca mountains, whose foothills are supposed to be rich with gold mines. That territory is, of course, in the company's concessions and has always been marked so on the map. But now that there is a prospect of gold there Great Britain claims it.- Arrangements are being made to send our men there to develop the company's concessions—not with any intent to start a controversy—hut to assert the company's rights. Besides the mines there are other properties in the concessions awaiting development." DEFEND THE FRONTIER. British Intend to Hold the nlsputed Territory. LONDON, Oct. 20.—The St. James Gazette made some highly important and sensational statements regarding Venezuela, which seem to show that the dispute between that republic and Great Britain has assumed a very grave aspect. It says that since the Rt. Hon. Joseph Chamberlain assumed office as secretary of the colonies he has paid close personal attention to the relations between Great Britain and Venezuela, and that he has token the initiatory in directing in part the admistration of the affairs of the British colony of Guiana, adjoining Venezuela. Mr. Chamberlain's hand, it appears, has been felt in the local executive council and the St. James Gazette adds: The British Policy. "We are now enabled to give the tenor of a remarkable dispatch, in which is outlined the imperial policy towards the colonies. The document is of much importance inasmuch as it was followed by cabled instructions from Mr. Chamberlain to the governor of British Guiana, Sir Charles Cameron Lees, K. C. M. G., to obtain without delay a vote for the provision of two maxim guns, one of which is to be stationed at Uruan, or elsewhere along the frontier, where the Venezuelans may attempt to cross. The mere fact that Mr. Chamberlain cabled instructions for the defense of the frontier in this manner is positive proof that the imperial government will not tolerate a repetition of the Uruan incident, and that it intends to hold the frontier Within the Schomburg line by force if necessary." f»*tfeer Wilt ftot Afcfti to :h« Rfttlsed Article*. HOT grains, Ark., Oct. 2I.-lnre- fponse to a question by a representative of the Associated Press a9 to his intentions, Mattin Julian, Pitzsimmous' backer, said: "I will not agree to the revised articles, nor will I consent to having the contest postponed. 1 will haveFitz- Simmons here ready to fight on Oct. 81 and if the other man does not meet him we will claim the forfeit. If the town board of the town Wants to make other arrangements we will meet them." Julian is to meet the Florida Athletic club in conference in the morning, when the matters will probably come up for adjudication. Glove Contents Jfot frohlbttetl. HOT SPB1NG9, Ark., Oct. 81.-Judge Leather man has released Corbett on a writ of habeas corpus. The case terminated just as everybody here expected it Would. Even those who are bitterly opposed to the contemplated glove contest coming off in Hot Springs or auy other section of Arkansas felt that where there seemed to he such a slight foundation for operation under the law, when it dame to a test a decision would be forthcoming that would be unsatisfactory to them. Governor Clarke was apparently the first to discover that there was no statutory prohibition to prize fighting oi'glove contests; that the act of 1891 had not passed the house as amended by the senate; that instead of the bill as amended passing as constitutionally provided, by roll call, it simply passed by a viva voce vote, hence, was not legally passed. REMAINS AT CHICAGO. That City Headquarter* or the Republican League for Two Years More. CHICAGO, Oct. 19.—The headquarters of the Republican League will continue in Chicago for the next two years. The Chicago men won a decisive victory at the meeting of the executive committee despite the fact that the general officers of the committee favored a removal to Washington. Ex-Secretary A. B. Humphrey of New York, who was a chief factor in securing.the moving of the headquarters to Chicago two years ago, was again on the side of the Western city. A New Yorker all over, Mr. Humphrey asserted that Chicago was the best adapted location in the United States for a political headquarters. It was the most central, and was surrounded by the leading Republican states of the country including the doubtful ones in which the presidential battle was either lost or won. Mr. Humphrey was seconded by Mr. Campbell, the Illinois representative, and Mr. Goodnow of Minnesota. NATIONAL W. C. T. U. ttil Hdtltte** tft»J*c«» to tttfijtteftti of ftettgtttn. P&tLA&ELt'HtA, Oct. 10.—Pope Leo has written an important letter to the Catholic hierarchy of America condemning the assemblage of congresses oi religion. The letter has been delivered to Archbishop Ryan of this city and to all other archbishops. It was the main subject considered at the recent assembling of the archbishops at Washington, but the efforts at Secrecy were successful in keeping the pope's letter from publicity. What steps the archbishops took cannot be learned, but With the views of the pope thus clearly expressed it is doubtless that the American church will anathematize the congresses of religion in the same Way that an interdiction Was placed on Catholic participation in the Knights of Pythias, Odd Fellows and other sececret societies. The congress of religions held at Chicago, as a feature of the World's Fair, was the most notable gathering of that character in recent years, bringing together not only the many sects of Christianity, but also Hindooa, Brahmins, Buddhists and the Theosophists. The gathering Was so notable that its projectors have expected it would lead to further congresses, merging all sects and creeds. Whether Pope Leo's disapproval is particularly in reference to the Chicago congress cannot be learned, but as it was the last and by far the most conspicuous gathering of the kind, the- letter Will be viewed with special reference to it.

Will Not Recognize Uncle Earn In Venezuelan Afltolrs. WASHINGTON, Oct. 20.—At the British embassy there was much interest evinced in the action of Minister Chamberlain on the Venezuela boundary question, as announced by the St. James Gazette. The embassy was without official advices, however, and it was thought that any steps on this and Other South and Central American questions would be taken in London, executed at point affected and not communicated to the British diplomatic representatives in the United States, It has been evident to diplomats here for some time that the British foreign office views all these questions as issues between'Great Britain and the parties immediately involved, and does not recognize the United States as a factor in the question. , VENEZUELA'S ANSWER, Site Will Most Popular BepuHlean Newspaper of the West M Has the largest Circulation, TERMS -BY MAIL SA DAILY (withe ut Sunday),...,,,,,.,,,,-$$,po' 1 PAU.Y (.with'&uq'dfty,)• •» i«x<««• • $8,00 per year The Weekly-Inter Ocean | $1.00 •r-.-n-n vim .«-« mint*!/ ^1^ B^J«M -J-J INTgB QSBAN k«fps abreast aHfegJlmA*. ilL The Weekly Inter AS A FAMILY PAPER IS NOT EXCELLED o* interest to saph member el th*..™ IPARTAIEJSTT >8 «J8 Vtf,y hSIt p ttS •ftofite m ww&b . . « ,,.«„««.„ d . lf « l PU8WfiWfeJg*. fj|m_»_fflitos:s ItS r ' |j *** •!M/'£M* 1? $ t9pi5 *' ™ Wfcivir FAFER. ^V^^^^'S^M^^SlWif'^ the Demands of the English Ultimatum, i ,__BTQN, Oct. 31.—The answer of Venezuela to the British ultimatum appears to be clearly foreshadowed in an official statement from the Venezue< Ian minister of foreign relations, This has been received at Washington.

It is added that the Japanese minister assured the Russian government that the culprit would be punished. But Russia is said to have replied that she would be forced, in consequence of the riots, to take the steps considered necessary to preserve order and to make the Korean government independent of of foreign interference. HE WILL "ACCEPT? Plan of Armenian Reform Accepted by the Turkish Minister. LONDON, Oct. 19,—The British foreign office, in addition to a dispatch from Sir Philip Currie, the ambassador of Great Britian at Constantinople, announcing that Said Pasha, the Turkish jninister for foreign affairs, bad accept, ed the scheme for reform in Armenia drawn up by Great Britain, France and Russia, is in receipt of an unofficial telegram announcing that the Arme. aisn question is virtually settled. the line of march were livelier than ever before in the history of the city. For the old settlers the reception at the Academy of Music was the event of the day, and dozens of them came down hours before it opened to be sure to be on time. The building was crowded to the doors and there were thousands who would have been glad to have attended if they could have got in. In the evening there was a mammoth cycle parade in which 4,000 wheelmen participated. Over 100,000 people witnessed the parade and the crowd greatly interfered with the progress of the wheelmen by blockading the streets. At the Hotel Pflster a banquet was given in honor of the invited guests. Milwaukee'* Celebration Over. MILWAUKEE, Oct. 19.—When the parting "good night" flamed out on the lake front, in the midst of shooting stars and sprays of fire, and expired in a shower of rockets, Milwaukee's semi- centennial celebration was over; The exercises of the second day were of a similar nature with 'those of the first day, and the crowds were fully as large and enthusiastic.

CHICAGO, Oct. 19.—A most important decision was handed down by the Illinois state board of railroad and (-rare- house commissioners. It affects not only every railroad centering in Chicago but every shipper of livestock in all the territory tributary to Chicago. The commissioners decided that the switching and terminal charge of $2 per car which the roads have been charging for delivering freight at the stockyards is an illegal one and extortion. The case decided was a test one brought by a shipper at Dwight some time ago against the Alton road. The Alton will probably ignore the decision. If so the commissioners will apply to the circuit court to enforce its decision. The matter will probably be carried to the supreme court. VAN LEUVEN FREE. WELL BORING AND DRILLING.
