Tho Minister of Public Works of Drazll
has drawn upon tho treasury for (IB,
C00 to pay the share of that Republic In
the cost of tho Intcr-Contlncntal Railway
survey. A dispatch from Montevideo
announces that Russell R. Pcalcr has
been appointed tho representative of
Uruguay on the iutcr-Contlntcntal "Rail
way Commission. Mr. Pcalcr la an
American citizen who has been engaged
in railway construction in Uruguay and

An I.viror.TST Position Vacant". Mr.
John G. McGregor, who has been for a
number of years chief of tho Customs
Division of tho Treasury Department, to
day tendered his resignation, which act
was entirely voluntary on his part. The
position which ho leaves is ono of the
most important In tho Treasury Depart
ment. It is thought that his successor
will bo Mr. J. R. Lake, who was for four
or lire years the assistant to Mr. Mc
Gregor, but who resigned a fow mouths
ago to become thechief clcrkof tho Board
ot Appraisers in Kevy York City.
It May He AmnTnATtos. It Is probable
that before lone tho President of the
United States will bo called upon to arbi
trate between Great Britain and Venezuela
as to tho boundary between tho posses
sions to tho two countries. England has
heretofore refused to submit tho matter to
arbitration, prefering to hold on to the
land vvhlch It has practically without
warrant taken "from Venezuela. Tho dls
puto is a long standing one, and Vene
zuela being tho weaker part has hereto
fore had tho worst of it, especially as rich
f;o)d mines havo been developed ou the
and which has been occupied by the
Fabdoks Denied. Tho President has
refused to pardon Robert Ij. Jackson of
Kentucky, convicted or violations or tho
