London, Nov. 13. When Edward
J. Ivory, the New York saloon,
keeper under arrest here on the
charge of being concerned with P. J.
Tynan abd others in a dynamite
conspiracy, was arraigned in police
court this morning. Jones, agent of
the British government, who has been
acting as a spy on the movements of
the Irish nationalists in New York
since '91, and who was admitted to
their councils, testified that the or
ganization existed known as the
United Irish; that the camps were
conducted with the utmost recrecy,
district orders being bnrned as soon
as read, and the members known
only by numbers. Tart of the sub
scriptions were contributed to the
revolutionary fund. Ivory was in
troduced to the witness in '91 aa
"brother." Tynan told that the wit
ness. Ivory, belonged to his camp.
Jones produced a document pnr
porting to be the constitution of the
society; also copies of the constitu
tion and ritual of the Clan-na-Gael ;
also a mass of documents giving
camp instructions, pass words, signs,
etc. At the close of the proceedings

BASE BALL BY COURT INJUNCTION
Rule Takes His Grievance to a Jadga
Proceeding, of th Magnate.
Chicrgo, Nov. 13. Failing to secure bis
release from the New York Base Ball club,
at the hands of the National League, Amos
Rusie, the famous pitcher, filed a bill for
an injunction in the federal court yester
day morning in order to sec are
his relate by legal process. Incidentally
Husie s application to tbe court means
more than his personal release, If granted.
It would mean that tbe right of reserva
tion exercised by the base hall clubs has
no legal standing, and make an open field
at the close rf each season for the contract
ing of players for the fallowing season.
The result of the day's proceedings
of the League magnates finds John T.
Brush restored to the place of power
that he held before the events of
Wednesday. The Louisville club voted
with the Bryne-Brush faction. Sanction
was given to threats of the recent meet

Washington. Nov 13. But one point
a matter of detail, and not of merits
remains open between the United
States and Great Britain in the settle
ment of the Venezuela question; and
the cablegrams passing between Lon
don and Washington give every reason
to believe that this point, which has
delayed the formal affixing of signa
tures to the arrangement of settle
ment, will be determined within a day
or two. It relates to the choice of the
four Judicial memebrs of the court of
arbitration, two by this country and
two by Great Britain. It has been
found that It was no easy task to take
the lord chief Justice, the solicitor gen
eral, or some other eminent British Ju
dicial functionary from his present im
portant duties and charge him with
other duties which may take months or
years in their execution. For that rea
son it has been considered wise to set
tie this matter at the outset. As stated.
the point remaining to be settled re-
fates wholly to the personnel of the ar
bitration tribunal, and in any event
will not affect the merits of the agree
ment already reached on the lines given
in full in the Associated Press dis
Ye Wiseacre Supplies Ammement.
The arrangement as to King Oscar II
of Sweden is not open, but is final as
far as Mr. Olney and Sir Julian Paunce
fote are concerned. The agreement on
the king as the chief arbitrator was
made under the same circumstances
nd conditions that always attach to
the selection of a ruler of a nation. At
times it has been the president of the
Swiss republic: at other times King
Humbert who has been named, hut al
ways with the understanding diplomat
ic usage implies that the king could
name another nominal representative
to relieve himself of the more laborious
duties of the position. In the present
case King Oscar was the one upon
whom the two countries agreed, and
with the usual limitations suggested,
they will look to him. or such one as he
may designate, as his representative.
There is much amused comment among
those intimately familiar with the facts
at the efforts in some quarters to make
nice distinctions as to the terms of
King Oscar's service itself, when. In
fact, this branch of the subject was re
moved from the field of discussion seme
Explanation of lite. Agreement.
Now that the facts of the agreement
are known fuller information Is ob
tainable as to the form the compact has
taken. There are two distinct papers
in the transaction. The first, and by far
the most important one. Is in the na
ture of a solemn agreement betwenn
the T"nitd States and Great Britain, on
the terms by which the boundary ques
tion will be settled, and the form of the
court of arbitration. It is lacking In
the technical characteristics of a trea
ty, and In form Is a final agreement
duly signed by the representatives of
the two governments, on the terms by
which they will settle the differences
arising out of their divergent views on
the disputed boundary question.
Then, because the subject matter of the
boundary Itself lies between Great Bri
tain and Venezuela, a second paper Is
made neeersary. This will be in the
form of a treaty, the contracting par
ties being Great Britain and Vene-
zoela. This will explain some anbi-
guity of terms that has arisen as to
agreement and treaty. Literally, the
I nitcd states and Great Britain have
made an agreement by which the terms
of an arbitration treaty between Great
Britain and Venezuela are framed.
The Shallow of Venezuela Appears.
Each instrument will relate to the
other and be a part of a common un
derstanding on the entire subject. In
this way Venezuela retains her attl
tude as a contracting party to the final
treaty, but as the treaty is shaped by
the agreement, the fnited States Is the
instrumentality by which the full re
sults are accomplished, and the United
States names two of the Judicial arbi

Stockholm. Sweden, Nov. 1J. The
representative of the AssiK-iated Press
yesterday sought to interview King
Oscar on the subject of the Venezuela
arbitration, and was received with the
greatest courtesy by the highest court
officials. His request for an expression
of opinion upon the part of the king
on the peaceful settlement arrived at
between the United States and Great
Britain, and as to his majesty's will
ingness to act as the fifth member of
the court of arbitration, was conveyed
to King Oscar, and his majesty sent the
correspondent the following message
in reply: "The king not hartrg re

It was explained that while his ma
