noise. Tho watchman was finally
overcome, bound and gagged and tied
to a steam pipe.' Tho robbers then

Recommends n lnertmso of tho. Army.
WAsiiinoton, Nov. 12. In transmit
ting to the bocrotary of war tho annual
reports of the department command
ers In connection with his own reports
upon the military operations of tho
post year, Gen. Nelson A. Miles, com
manding tho army, takes' occasion to
commend tho dlsciplino and personnel
of this army.
, .Regarding tho distribution of tho
army at important fortifications along
tho 0,000 miles of seacoast and at cor
tain points along tho 7,000 miles of na
tional boundary, which Is necessary to
give security against a foreign foe and
protection from Indians, Con. Miles
earnestly recommends that no consid
eration for tho location of military
posts bo entertained, except when they
arc called for by tho military author
ities and deemed absolutely cssontial
for the national requirements.
Gen. Miles recommends that tho en
listed strength of tho army be fixed at
one soldier to every 2,000 of population
as a minimum, tho maximum not to ex
ceed ono soldier, for every 1,000 of popu
lation. "Tho strength to bo determined
by tho presidont of tho United States
according to tho necessities and rcquir
ments of tho nation."
Ho renews his previous recommenda
tion that at least two stations west of
tho Rocky mountains and ono cast bo
established for tho accommodation of
ono regiment of cavalry each-; also tho
recommendations concerning tho uso
of bicycles ancLmotor wagons and tho
promotion of enlisted man who shall bo
found competent after thorough exam
ination to tho grado of second lieuten
ant after flvo years' sorvlce.
Roforrlng to coast defenses. Gen.
Miles renews his recommendations of
last year for liberal appropriations for
high power Runs, mortars and other
artillery necessities, and urges suf
ficient appropriations for tho work of
ordnance, engineer and quartermas
ter's departments bo mado available
during tho coming year. Among items

A I'otty Trick Oar President Fore
stalled In tbo Aunonueemont of Ills
Splendid Diplomatic Triumph.'
Washington, Nov. 12. There re
main but few details to bo settled in
tho matter of the Venezuelan arbi
tration, and these details aro now
being nrrangod between Secrotary
Olney and Sir Julian Pauncc
fote, tho British ambassador. It Is
generally conceded that King Oscar
of Norway and Sweden will bo tho
fiftlt arbitrator, though it is intimated
that In case ho should decline, tho
KINO OSCAR II.
president of the sister republic will ul
timately bo selected. This is really s
matter of detail.
It is taken for granted that Chief Jus
tico Fuller will bo one of tho American
arbitrators, and it is not impossible
that Mr. Frederick Coudert may bo"the
other. Mr. Coudert, being a member
of the Venezuelan commission, is emi
nently equipped with all information,
and would therofore be n valuablo rep
resentative of this government.
There is, a rumor Thursday that the
British foreign ofllco has been guilty
of a petty trick, designed to deprive
tho president of tho personal triumph
of announcing in hi3 forthcominc
messago to congress that American
diplomacy and determination had
triumphed over Great Britain. Tho
publication in advance of the signa
ture of any portion of tho proposed
Venezuelan protocol was a fflarinc
breach of tho diplomatic usages that
are recognized between all govern
ments. It is known, of course, that
neither Secretary Olney nor Sir Julian
Pauncofoto .had given out this in
formation. Inquiry by tho diplomats
representing other governments Anally
revealed tho fact that certain details
of tho treaty, embodying its most im
portant 'features, had been given out
by tho British foreign ofllco to be
cabled to Washington and printed hero
in order to forestall President Clove
land. London, Nov. 12. Tho St. James
Gazette Thursday afternoon publishes
a leading article, headed ,"Au His
toric Moment," in tho course of which
it says: "Lord Salisbury's great ad
mission of the principle that the
United States have the right tc
Intervene in frontier disputes of the
American powers and to compel the
disputants to arbitrate, altogthci
transconds in importance the qucs
tion of the Guiana boundary. It is a
formal recognition of the hegemony
of tho United States on the American
continent and gives tho president a
position in tho new world which the
medieval popes and emperors tried
vainly to claim in Europe."
London, Nov. 12. Tho foreign offlco
has communicated official information
to the United Associated Presses thai
there uro still many details of the
Venezuelan agreement to be arranged.
Before these arc completed and
tho basis of tho agreement bo
comes an ofllcial record signed by
Sir Julian Pauncofote, British Am
bassador at Wnshingtou, and
Hon. Richard Olney, United States
secretary of state, the foreign otlice iu
feists that no communications on the
subject from hero aro possible. Sh
Julian Paunccfote is tho only medium,
taking his instructions directly from
Lord Salisbury, who now considers the
matter-concluded, excepting tho verbal
form of the convention, which must be
based upon an exchange of documents.
Besides Sir Richard Webster, attor
ney general, Lord Davoy, lord of ap
peal in ordinary, is mentioned in legal
circles as likely to be assigned to the
(conduct of tho British caio before the
Lousing Lands for Cnuvlcts.

A Mninorliit to Congress Adopted Gen.
Harrison Delivers nn Address.
Indianapolis, Iud., Nov. 12. Tho
third day's session of tho Farmers' Na
tional congress had two important
features. Ono was an address by Gen.,
Harrison, and tho other was tho adop
tion of a memorial to congress.
Gen. Harrison was in a happy mood,
and, wlion he aroso to speak, ho was
After tho memorial to congress -was
read 0. M. Hogg, of Ohio, moved that
the paragraph asking that the duty
upon wool, as prayed for by tho Na
tional Wool Growers' association, ono
year ago, and embodied in tho memo
rial, be btricken out and also that tho
".lino of holding imported wool in bond
bo extended 30 days.
Tho motion brought u wrathful re
ply from Judge Lawronce, of Ohio, who
charged that Mr. Hogg's interests were
with tho manufacturers rather than
with tho wool growers Ho charged
that tho Dlngley bill discriminated in
favor of tho manufacturer and ugalnat
the wool grower. Mr. Hogg, in reply
ing, said that 05 per cent, of tho manu
facturers wero iu sympathy with tho
American wool growors, and that the
discrimination against American wools
is because of tho faulty condition iu
which they aro put upon tho market.
Tho memorial asks congress to sco to
it that no trusts aro organized that
can extort exorbitant prices for farm
products, favors tho protcctivo tariff
policy and asks, regarding wool, these
changes In tho Dingley bill:
That tho "skirting clause," of tho
act of 1800, shall not bo applicablo to
That the pledge therein that it shall
contlnuo in operation "Until August 1,
1603" shall be struck out.
That tho duties on woolen rags,
shoddy, mungo, flocks, nocks, waste
and other adulterations shall bo mado
That wool and woolen manufactures
imported under its provisions shall not
remain in bonded warehouses more
than ten days.
England Not Kcucly to Recognize It as
London, Nov. 12. Tho Globe, com
menting upon the Venezuelan arbitra
tion treaty, says it welcomes tho agree
ment because it releases the United
States from a false and dangerous
position. If the commission had re
ported adversely to Great Britain, the
paper adds, President Cleveland would
have been forced to attempt to
coerce Great Britain to eat humble
pie, with tho result that if tho
Washington government had seen fit
t.1! enter tho unequal contest with Eng
land the developments of tho United
States would have been retarded for
half a century. Tho Globe also says:
"It must be clearly understood that
the constitution of the new arbitration
tribunal is not to establish a precedent
for arranging' all further disputes be
tween tho United States and the United
Kingdom in North and South America,
nor are wo ready to recognize Monroe
ism as international law."

"Tho Ohio bill Is constitutional.
That of Illinois was not, and I am
not surprised to Itnow it was so
held. The difference in favor of
our act is this: the constitutions
of both states are identical in
hat judicial powers are vested in
only the courts. The Illinois bill
conferred judicial power on tho coun
ty recorder, who was called to pass
on titles, claims, etc. Under tho Ohio
bill the recorder only receives appli

Of tho Socrct Survlre, Makes Ills Annual
Washington, Nov. 12. Tho annual
report of W. P. Hazen, chief of the se
cret service, states that tho counterfeit
ing of paper money has materially de
creased during tho past year. This
can in part bo accounted for by tho
largo increaso in "raised" or "altered"
notes found in circulation, some of
which aro most skilfully exe
cuted. Ho attributes the facil
ity with which the public aro
deceived by raised notes to
the frequent changes in tho designs of
tho United States notes, which makes
it almost impossible for tho public to
becomo familiar with the currency. It
is also made plain, he adds, that tho
distinctive paper in use is an aid to tho
criminal rather than a protection to
tho public, because of tho fact that a
note printed upon paper containing
silk threads (as a number of the best
of tho counterfeits and all
the raised notes tire) is accepted
in a majority of instances
without hesitation, owing to the orro
neous impression that tho paper used
by tho government is manufactured by
a secret process and can not be coun
terfeited. He has also becomo con
vinced that the introduction of silk
into tho paper tends to lessen its
wearing qualities and is, therefore,
responsible to a degree for its short
