Washington, Juno 25, As boon as
Secretary Olhoy returns to Ihe stnto
department, and ho is confidently ex
pected Thursday, ho will receive from
Sir Julian Pauncefotc, the British am
bassador, a request from the Iiritlsh
govern ment to tiso his good of

tho release from imprisonment
of Crown Surveyor Harrison,
who is reported to have been arrested
by Venezuelan police while ho was en
gaged in constructing a road connect
ing the liurima and Cuyuni rivers in
tho disputed territory. This action of
Great Britain is considered in dip
lomatic circles a radical departuro from
the ultimatum nethods hitherto
practiced on American republics, and
much significance is attached to this

acknowledgment of tho United States

versies regarding territory on the
While it is universally admitted that
tho new incident is exceedingly unfor
tunate just at this juncture, there is
great diversity of opinion it fixing the
blame. Even the British government
has tho most indefinito knowledge of
the exact locality where tho arrest took
place, although it is claimed that tho
surveying party had no authority to go
outside of territory occupied exclusive
ly by Englishmen for tho past ten
years. No official knowledge of tho
arrCst has yet been received at the
Venezuelan legation, where confidence
is expressed that Venezuela will havo
sent a notice of tho affair, per
haps for' tho information of the
United States government, tho mo
ment thi' facts becamo known
at Caracas. Tho Venc7iielans, how
over, find considerable satisfaction in
tho information that Great ltritain will
appeal to Secretary Olney in the mat

ered of so serious a nature as at first
apprehended. They placo the whole
blame for whatever has occurred on
