with the Texas fever. Dr. Connoway
has been signally successful in the mak

the native cattle, thus immunizing
them from the contagion. A cow was
treated thus some thirty-five days
since, then turned into a lot and cov

alive, healthy and gaining flesh. Other
cattle thus exposed have contracted
the disease within 12 days, and usually
die within 15. A full report of the ex--periment
is uow being prepared.

Washisgtox, Oct, 22. The Venezue
lan minister, Senor Andrade, made a
call lasting about an hour on the sec
retary of state to-day, but declined to
divulge the nature of the interview.
It is well understood, however, that if
the proposals which Sir Julian Paunce
fote is said to be bringing from Lord
Salisbury offer only partial arbitra
tion at the boundary dispute or the
elision of any part of Venezuela's
claims as a compromise substitute for
Secretary Olney's plan for adjudica
ting the entire controversy, the Ven
ezuelan government will decline to ac
cept arbitration on any such terms.
The attitude of complete confidence
reposed by Venezuela in the Ameri
can boundary commission's final de
termination is declared to be abso
lutely unchanged, and Venezuela has
determined to await the commission's
decision, now expected early in De
cember, unless England in the mean
time consents to a reference of the en
tire question to an impartial tribu
nal. An intimation has reached official
quarters here that Great Britain may
eventually consent to free and full ar

stipulation which was imposed upon

relating to the Schomburgk line, was

Prof. Burr is bringing the final in
stalment of evidence to be considered

With the receipt of the valuable
documents discovered in the Hague
archives by professors Burr and De
Haan, and the revised translations
from originals made by the latter ex
pert, some of which are expected to
throw new light on the earlier phases
of the controversy, the commission
will be in a position to rapidly con
clude its labors and draw up its report
to the president, accompanied by its
map bearing "the true divisional Une."
Whatever foundation there may be for
the belief that the minds of all the
commissioners are made up on the
question, the final definite decision
can not be reached until Prof. Burr's
report is examined. Those who have
transactions with the commissioners,
and who are aware of the character of
evidence which has been considered
most important, express the opinion
that the decision will not agree with
