Afran&cnit'i.tS for Aftltfatld* flat* Beeh Mftdft. Washington dispatch* The Itiflf til Sweden and Norway, dsca? llj hag been chdst* by the treaty betweeti thfe Uiiited States and Great Bfitaib «s the fifth official arbitrator of the Ven' ezuelari boundary question. The other arbitrators, four ia number, are to, be designated, two by the lord chief justice of England^ and two by the dhief justice of the United States. This is thfe filial and most important feature of the treaty for the complete adjustment of the long pending Venezuelan controversy. The treaty was concluded in Washington at the British embassy ( SirdulianPauncefote representing her Britannic majesty and Secretary Olney the United States. The main point of the treaty is that King Oscar II is the fifth "or dbcisive arbitrator. It was deemed best to make this choice rather than to leave it to the selection of the other four arbitrators. The latter are assured of being men of eminent judicial attainment, as their choice is left entirely to the judiciary of the respective countries. The essential feature of the' treaty is that fifty years actual aos- session is to constitute title. With this limitation as to the settled districts, the entire sweep of the Venezuelan boundary is placed in the hands of the court of arbitration, The treaty covers only Venezuela, and the question of general arbitration between the United States and Great Britain is loft to future negotiations. The court of arbitration is expected to •sit at Stockholm. From the Venezuelan standpoint, a final agreement for any kind of arbitration is a Distinct victory. Venezuela has asked for arbitration for forty years. Great Britain's reply has always been that while arbitration was desired, yet the settled districts were regarded as sovereign British soil not open to arbitration. By Salisbury's statement arbitration will proceed on the acceptance of the old common law rule of proscription. . The understanding is that the entire Venezuelan boundary will be thrown open to arbitration, it remaining for Great Britain to show that certain portions have been occupied by her subjects so long, peacefully, uninterrupted and publicly as to make conclusive her territorial presumption.

Possibility of It Patsl ig tho Senate Dar- Ing the Next Session. "^ Washington dispatch:' There is considerable talk concerning the possibility of the passage of the Dingley tariff bill during the coming session of congress. It all depends,on the attiludej of the silver senators and a belief is entertained that they will not standin the way of its passage.
