THAT IS WHAT ENGLAND ' AP
PEARS TO BE AIMING AT IN
Uruan Incident Occurred in Disputed
Territory If Venezuela Yields Repa
ration She Acknowledges Eng-
! land's Title to Said Territory.
Washington, Oct. 22. Great Britain's
radical steps on the Venezulan question
continues to excite lively interest in dip
lomatic circles. The demand has not yet
1 "ached Caracas, as is evident from the
fret that Minister Andradc has not heard
1, mil his government on the subject.
President Crespo, who has been absent
from the capital on a vacation, has start
ed back for the purpose, it is believed,
of filling the four vacancies in his cabinet
which occurred recently. One of these
new officers is the minister of foreign af
fairs. There is no doubt entertained
here that Crespo's new minister will share
the views of his predecessor, as no min
istry or administration could survive in
Venezuela which did not make resistance
to British aggression its foremost policy.
Some of the latest reports from London
cause comment and criticism among of
ficials here. One of these statements at
tributed to Ambassador Bayard the de
claration that the Urunn incident is in
dependent of the boundary question and
that the United States can take no part
in the former incident. It is pointed out
here that the two questions are inscpera
bly connected. The Uraun incident is
based on a claim that the Venezuelans
arrested Sergeant Behrens of the British
constabulary on British soil and that this
indignity must be repaired. The Vene
zuelans claim that it occurred on Venezu
elan soil. The gravity of the case de
pends on ownership of the territory where
the trouble took place. It is therefore
considered to involve the entire territo
rial question, although it is a specific in
cident arising in the disputed territory.
In speaking of the answer of the first de
mand for reparation on this incident Min
ister Andrade said that the reparation
was refused because it would be a' sur
render of all the claims Venezuela ever
ENGLAND'S ARTFUL SCHEME.
Washington, Oct. ' 22. As it becomes
more and more evident that the British
government is disposed to make it ap
pear thnt the Uruan incident is parallel
to the Corinto nffair, and may therefore
be treated in the same fashion without
leading to the intervention of the United
States, officials here are .pointing out two
essential points of difference, and Mr.
Bayard will doubtless bo instructed to
emphasize these on his further represen
tation of the subject to the British for
eign office. In the first case Great Brit
ain demanded nnd obtained an indemnity
from Nicaragua on the ground thnt her
national honor had been outraged by the
summary expulsion of her representa
tive, although the latter was only an
humble consular agent. The United States
consented to stand aloof on this occasion
on the theory that a nation had a right
to redress an insult.
But in the Uruan affair it can not be
maintained for .an instant that the Brit
ish government has a right to demand a
redress for the arrest of its officials unless
it shall be first established that they were
within British territory, and thus the
whole issue is raised as a preliminary. If
these British officers were on British ter
ritory then Venezuela must apologize and
make any further reasonable reparation,
but before she can be rightfully expected
to do this that fact must be cleared up,
and nothing but on agreement, amicable
or enforced, upon the exact location of
the boundary line can settle this point.
Therefore the attempt to shift the issue,
Involving as it does, a prejudgment of the
rights of Great Britain to territory claim
ed by Venezuela, it is not likely to secure
the countenance of our state department.
A WORD FOR WALLER.

Woodford, who was in Madagascar at

presented his version of the case to Act

strenuously, that the proceedings of the
French authorities were entirely unwar

without jurisdiction. Mr. Woodford pre

numerous persons m Antananarivo to
show that Waller had not been supplying

A Joint Session Winds Up the Three
Minneapolis. Oct. 22.-The two houses
ot the Epicopnlian convention met in joint
session tins afternoon as the final ict
of a very busy three weeks' session. The
pastorial letter prepared by the bishops
was read by Bishop Littlejolm of Long
Island. The bishops refer to the success
ful deliberations of the convention, to the
progress of the work of revising the ac
tion and canons and to the need of more
systematic and general contributions for
the work of the church. A paragraph is
devoted to the heroic self sacrifice of
the missionaries in China nnd to a justi
fication of the church's policy in keeping
them there and sending more to join in
the work. The fact that four new dio
ceses and two missionary jurisdictions
have been created is pointed to as an ev
idence of the healthy growth of the
church at homo.
In discussing church unity the bishops
are not hopeful of immediate or general
results except in spreading the sentiment
for unity throughout Christendom.

Chicago, Oct. 22. A special dispatch to

Owing probnbly to the fact that Secre
tary Olney did not go to Atlanta with the
president and party, but did leave for
Boston today, a rumor is afloat tonight
and will be published tomorrow that Mr.
Olney is contemplating retirement from
the cabinet. The alleged excuse for this
is supposed disagreement between him
self and the president in regard to the for
eign policy, especially with reference to
the Venezuelan matter, in which rumor
says that Mr. Olney favors a more vigor
ous course than does the president. The
rumor, however, is entirely unconfirmed,
and owing to the absence of Mr. Olney
and President Cleveland, as well as all
members of the cabinet, it is impossible
to obtain any definite information which

' TOPIC OF -THE TIMES.1
Some Interesting Gossip on National
Affairs. - -" .'. :.:'.
It is most unfortunate for the United
States that purely International questions
are with us made the footballs for par
tisan contentions and, jndeed, thai they
are frequently made use of to divert the
attention of the electors away from Na
tional or local questions of importance.
The country is on the eve of a general
election. Issues other than those claim
ing public attention are needed for va
rious party and personal reasons and re
quirements. These nre easily found in
some international contention, generally
a necessary "stalking horse" for purely
party or personal purposes nnd nearly
always dragged into notice which in the
ordinary course of public affairs would
never be accorded it.
Just nt the present time two interna
tional questions present themselves, and,
niost handily, to the minds of our polit
ical partisans with imaginations as bar
ren as regards powers of invention. One
of these is Cuban intervention, a com
paratively innocuous political dodge. The
other is the necessity of the enforcement
of the Monroe doctrine ns respects the
present relations of Great Britain and
Venezuela:' The latter country desires
Great Britain to submit a boundary dis
pute, which has been a contention be
tween them for years, to arbitration.
Gront Britain is willing to arbitrate, so
far as a portion of the territory is in
volved, but has repeatedly refused to
arbitrate as to the whole thereof. Thus
the case now stands.
Meanwhile, in order to directly interest
the United States in the contention, Ven
ezuela has astutely made concessions of
a portion of this disputed territory to
certain United States incorporated com
panies. " Of course if these companies
proceed to take possession of the conces
sions the' British authorities in posses
sion of the territory will forcibly inter
fere; then the United States will bo
called on to protect their rights and thus
will be involved in actual war with Great
Britain, as we were by a somewhat sim
ilar scheme involved in a war with Mex
ico. This mode of settling the question does
not at present, however, appear to com
mend itself to our government, ' for the
very good reason that it would logically
expose us to the charge of having made
up our minds on the entire question in
dispute, at the 'same time that we expect
to be culled on as one of the arbitrators
thereto. Probably the British have con
veyed this view of the situation to our
government by the pertinent inquiries of,
first, has the United States a protecto
rate over Venezuela' second, can a coun
try holding such a protectorate act as
a disinterested arbitrator? It will be
remembered that some time since Great
Britain offered to nrbitrate, but with a
proviso which virtually excluded the
United States from acting on the board
It is possible this circumstance which
has induced or forced our cabinet to
revert to its original idea of carrying
on the contention strictly on the theory
that Great Britain is netinir in violation
of the Monroe doctrine, the author of
which was really George Canning as I
originally pointed out in these papers
and who, in 1822, when secretary of state

Gresham's conclusion. Seeretnry Fos
ter is of the oninion that "(Jrent Hritnin

tion must fight or give up the ghost."

on a country which one secretary says

fight we expect to win, as another sec
retary says, lor the reason that Great
Britain will not fight because she knows

Tossibly Mr. Foster's "bluff came"
may win, if we were careful not to bluff
too boldly. But we cannot starve Great
Britain unless by blockading her ports;
while, if we cannot blocknde them, we
will be raising up agricultural competi

QUOTATIONS , FROM SENATOR
SHERMAN'S MEMOIRS LATE
GARFIELD ACCUSED OF INSINCERITY
The Martyred President's Nomination in
1S80 Had Been Agreed Upon Before
the Convention Sherman Tricked
Out of the Nomination.
Chicago, Oct. 21. The following is a
synopsis of Senator Sherman's reference
in his memoirs to the Republican Na
tional convention of 1880, which nomi
nated Garfield for the presidency, the ref
erence to which has been the subject
of some newspaper discussion within the
past few days:
During the month of April delegates
were selected from different congression
al districts of the State of Ohio to at
tend the State convention to meet on the
2Sth of that mouth. Prior to the con
vention the question of the nomination
was the subject of the discussion in
every district. The st utinient in my favor
was clearly experssed in nearly every
county or district of the State. On the
8th of April I wrote the following letter
to a lrieud: - .
"McKinley is still in Ohio, and I pre
sumu will bo there for some days. 1
have written him ut Cantou, covering the
points you name. You had better write
to him yourself, giving the list of appoint
"There is a strong feeling thnt Gar
field, in order to save his district should
go to the Chicago convention ns a dele
gate. He is plnced in a very awkward
attitude now.. If ts district thould be
against my nomination it would be at
tributed to either wnnt of influence on
his part, or, what is worse, a want of
sincerity iu my support. Iu view of the
past this would be a very unfortunate
thing for him. This is a delicate matter
for me to take part in, and I leave it en
tirely to your good judgment end kind
While iu Ohio I had n consultation nt
Columbus with Governor Foster, ex-Governor
Dennison and a number of other
personal friends, nil of whom expressed
great confidence that by the time the
State convention met the friendly feel
ing in favor of Blaine iu some of the
districts of Ohio would lie waived in def
erence to the wish of the great majority.
In thnt event, iu cose my nomination
should prove impracticable, the whole
delegation could be very easily changed
to Mr. Blaine.
As to General Grant, though he had
many warm personal friends in Ohio,
yet on account of objections to a third
term very few desired his nomination.
Prior to the State convention I had
nn interview with General Garfield,
which he sought nt my oflieo in the de
partment, and ho there expressed his
earnest desire to secure my nomination
nnd his wish to be a delegate nt large,
so that he might aid me effuctively. I
had not a doubt of the support of Govern
or Foster, with whom 1 had been in close
correspondence, and who expressed a
strong desire for my nomination. I was
permitted to name the four delegates at
largo and had implicit confidence that
those delegates would take the lend in
my behnrf. The State convention met
on the 28th of April and expressed the
preference of the Republicans of Ohio
for my nomination and recommended
that a vote by State bo cast for me. On
the 10th of May Garfield wrote me:
"I think it will be a mistake for us to
assume a division iu the Ohio delegation.
We should meet nnd net ns though we
were of one mind until those delegates
who are hostile to you refuse to net with
ns, and if WP fail to win them over, the
separation will be their act, not ours."
The National convention met Juno 2,
1880. Four days were occupied in per
fecting the permanent organization and
the nomination of candidates for pres
ident. During this time a minority of
nine of the delegation of Ohio announced
their deterniiiiation to vote for Blaine.
Ibis was a fatal move for Blaine and
undoubtedly led to his defeat. Nearly
four-fifths of the delegation were in favor
of my nomination in pursuance of lho
express wishes of the Ohio convention,
but they were all friendly to Blaine and
whenever it should have become appar
