Donald Grant, of Fairabault, iu an In
terview to-day gavo interesting infor
mation about tho groat concessiou about
tlio moutli of tho Orinoco in Vonozuola,
which Mr. Grant and htn awociatoi
have secured. Mr. Grant donioa with
considerable vigor tho assertion! mado
in Washington that tho concession is iu
any way involved in tho international
complications botweon Vonezuela and
England. Nearly all of tlio land which
ia granted to tho nyndicato to bo colo
nlzcd and improved has always belong
od to Venezuola and has never boon |
claitnod by England. Mr. Grant admit
tod, howovor, that a atnall corner of tho
concoaaion had boen sottlod on by Eng
lishmen,but it was tho least valuable and
no troublo would ariioout of that fact.
Ho adds that the conceaaion is really
olovon years old, haviug boon granted to
J. A. Bowman in 1SS-C who had been
intorosted in it with Austin Corbett.
After some work had boon dono in
improving tho privileges granted tho 1
revolution broke out, which GnHlly put |
Crespo in power, and nothing was done.
Tho trip which Mr. Grant, with Bow
man ond W. H. Fisher, has just taWon
was to havo tho concession confirmed
and tho divergent interoete harmonious.
In this they woro succcisful and expect
to improve their privilege*, if tho talk
about international complications or a
war with England docs not interfere.
The concession includoa valuable iron
mines, great forests of mahogany, roao
wood, lignum viuc, and an inland at tho I
mouth of tho Orinoco in Vonezuola, |
whoro thoro aro valuable asphalt well*.
It is also believed thoro is gold in pay
ins quantities. Tho Venezuelan con
gress adjourns Juno 15, and Mr. Grant
expocts to go thera again beforo that
dato to closo up tho negotiations.
