A Discovery Made of Consider
In the Boundary Disputo Between
Great Britain and Venezuela.
The Whole Truth Appears to IIixvo Horn
Withheld ly Lord ballnbury, lint the
United Stilton linn the Document
A llrltlsh Cnbluot bucrct to Llfht.
Washington, Doc. 31. In tho last
few days tho stato department has
made a discovery of considerable im
portance in tho Venezuela boundary
dispute. Tills official document dem
onstrates that England had no idea of
claiming1 a largo part of Venezuela un
til Schomburgk'H scientific explora
tions had disclosed tho great wealth of
the region, and that alio then deter
mined to make exorbitant claims.
Sir Ilobcrt Schomburgk was appoint
ed in November) 1810, special commis
sioner for surveying tho boundaries of
In submitting tho maps of his sur
vey on which ho indicated tho line
which ho would propose to her ma
jesty's government for adoption, Sir
Robert Schomburgk called attention to
tho fact that her majesty's government
might justly claim tho whole 'basin of
tho Cuyuni and Yurarl on the ground
that the natural boundary of the
cStony- Included any territory through
which flow rivers which fall into the
Ksscquibo, and thus approach tho very
heart of Venezuelan Guiana.
Hut on grounds of complaisance to
ward Venezuela ho proposed that
Great Britain should consent to sur
render her claim to a more extended
frontier inland in return for the
formal recognition of her right to
Point liarima. It was on this principle
that ho drew tho boundary lino which
has since been called by his name.
Tho newly discovetcd document
consists, of a letter from Viscount Lcv
cson (afterward Earl Granville), Brit
ish, under secietary of state for foreign
affairs, to Sir James Stevens, perma
nent tinder secretary for tho colonies,
written under instructions from Lord
Palinerston, secrotary of foreign af
fairs, for tho guidance of Lord John
Ilusscll, secretary for war and colo
nies. This letter shows exactly what
'went on inside tho British cabiuot at
that time. Tho note is in part, us fol
lows: Sir: I am directed by Viscount Palmcrston
to acknowledge tlio recolpt of your letter ot
tho 0th Inst.
With refeionco to that pirt of jour lot
ter In which you stato that Lord John
Russell considers it to bo Important that
tho bounds of llrltlsh Guiana should bo as
certained and aKrccd upon, and that Mr.
Schotnburgk's researches havo qualllled
hlra in a manner to be of Uso should tho
services of any porson acquainted with tho
geography of Uiitlsh Guiana bo required
for fixing this boundary of tho British toi
rltory, I am to stato to you that the courao of
proceeding which Lord l'almorston would sug
gest for tho consideration of Lord John ltus
sell is that a map of llrltlsh Guiana should bo
mado out according to tho boundaries discov
ered by Mr. Schomburgk, that tho said map
should bo accompanied by a memoir, dotnillng
the natural forces which dellno and constitute
tho bounds in question, and that copies
of that map and momolr should bo
,dellcrcd to tho governments of Vene
zuela, of Brazil and of the Nether
lands as a statement of tho llrltlsh claim, that
in tho mcmulillo British commissioners
should bo sent to erect landmarks on tho
ground in order to mark out tho lino ot bound
ary so claimed bv Great Ilrltaln It would
thc.i rest with each of tho three governments
above monlioccd to m ike any objection which
thoy might havo to bring forward against tho
bounds and to state tho tcasons upon which
such objections might bo foundoJ. mid hor
majesty's government would then glvo such
nnswcis.theicto ns might appear proper and
Lnrd'Pitlmerston further considers that it
would be oxpedient that tho Brazilian detach
ment should bo required to withdraw from 11
rara, and that tho ofllcor in command bhould
bo informed that any cl lim which Jirazil may
imagine luclf to havo to that village should bo
sUted liv tho Brazilian government to that ol
Great IJrluiu, In order that It may ha dis
cussed between the tuo governments.
In rofcrenco to tho last paragraph it
may be stated that Brazil did with
draw from I'irara and that tho south

Asuoclntion Itonsts the rowers-
New Yoiik, Doc. 31. Recent lotters
tolling of the massacre in various Ar
menian cities contain certain informa
tion that helps to explain many points
in the awful outbreaking of the so
cillod Mahometan fanaticism. A let
ter from Trehizond says:
Bahri Pasha, governor of Vanshd,
started to come to Constantinople, and
it was learned that ho was bringing
with him four -of the fairest young
maidens of Sassoun, who had been
spared in tho massacre, to make
an acceptable present of them
to his Sultan. This aroused tho Ar
menian people of Trcbizond to a
frenzy, and it was impossible to re
strain tho young men, tho more dar
ing of whom fired uyoif Bahri Pasha,
wounding him. But he carried out
his mission to Constantinople, and
was honored with tho highest dec
oration and appointed governor of
Adana. Afterward tho pasha of Trebi
zond, calling 12 of tho leading men of
tho city, commanded that they should
hand over tho young men who at
tacked tho governor, and gavo them
just a few hours in which to carry out
ills order. Tho next day they answered
him that tho government had no means
of finding the men out.
Then the mails had arrived and peo
plo went toward the post ofiice, tho
trump, t was sounded three times, and
both tho soldiers and tho mob rushed
upon tho people. And this we know is
only one and not even tho most terri
ble of the massacres.
In view of the revelations as to the
actual political conditions in Kuropo
influencing tho fato of tho Armenian
people in Turkey, tho Armenian relief
association in New York Monday ca
bled, the following message to the Lon
don Times and Dailv News:
Europe pushed Armenia into tho
mouth of hell and turned to celebrate
Christmas. If the continental powers
are dead to honor and conscience, can
England forget justice'.' Docs she not
believe in Almighty Clod that she waits
for help bofore stopping the wholesale
assassination of Christian ministers
and their flocks and the ravishing of
maidens? We send 1,0)0 pounds to
Grosvonor houso committee. But what
avails food when lire nnd sword exter
minate? Shall we advise Armenians
to apostatize? Surely the wr.ith of
God and tho blessing of the Christ
have still a significance for the men of
England. Does she no more expect
them to do their duty? Christian
America will support England.
