BRIEF ITEMS. „^OU^W^M Ociobier 26.-^Att ttfttiSfcal dJmpHcatiflav which m • hS &f gl-iater importance to Qrfeat Bhtalti thaa her dispute with Vetiezudla, it is said here, is likely t6 fdllofr the de- claratidti that her !aaj6sty*s grovefn-; inent will ndt relinquish possession df the island of Trinidad) in Brazil, which' is situated aboflt ISO miles frofii ttlo Janeiro. Various claims tei the posses* sion of this island, which is att impdr- tattt strategic point, have been advanced by Great Britaift at various times. One claim was of original discovery ( but this being abundantly disproved in favor of the Portuguese, claim is now made to the island as having been acquired by Great Britain by purchase from tho claimants to a grant disputed by Brazil. Great Britain is reported to have arrived at a decision that she will adhere to this, her latest claim. If this be so, Great Britain's action will create a greater excitement in Hrax.il than has existed there for years. There is the strongest documentary evidence that Brazil's claim to Trinidad is unassailable. Should any difficulty now arise between the two countries, it is not thought that the United States will become involved. Brazil, it is be' lieved, is competent to manage her own affairs, without the assistance of this country. IT IS ANNEXATION. Kiissla's Treaty With Chlnii Means Absorption.

The Gazette assumes that this practically means that Ilussia has annexed China, if the conclusion of thc.treaty is a fact, Japan, the paper says, will certainly refuse to leave Port Arthur and Eng- and will oppose it to the death. The reaty also means the presence of lussian warships off Vancouver and Sydney, and England must act vigorously and immediately, both by means of diplomacy and by getting her fleets •eady for sea.
