It is Taken for Granted That Chief Justice Fuller Will Be Another. Frodorlclc, Coudert Spoken of at the Third 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 feJV m.fj-.A ii- Vi sFpvr'?al 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 arbitration commission. Lousing Lands for Cnuvlcts. Jackson, Miss., Nov. 12. Tho board of control of tho state penitentiary has leased 7,500 acres of Delta farm land on which it will ralso cotton next year as it did this, with convict labor.

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 greeted enthusiastically. 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 tho bill. 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 prohibitory. That wool and woolen manufactures imported under its provisions shall not remain in bonded warehouses more than ten days. MONROE DOCTRINE. England Not Kcucly to Recognize It as International Law. 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." Ono Ilurclar Uoid, tho Otlior Wocuded. Uatavia, N. Y., Nov. 12. Two bur glars wero discovered robbing the gen eral btoro of W. A.

Probate Judgo Ferris, who, under the Torrens system as enacted for Ohio, will be called to exercise broader judicial duties, has given thi bill exhaustive study. He said Wednesday: "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 cations. The common pleas and pro bate courts pass on the claims ju dicially. That is the ease in a nut shell." THE SMALLPOX Case nt Iroutn'i Han Its Origin from an Old Coat Tulii'ii 1'nira a 1VU House.

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 life. The counterfeiting of gold and silver coius has been on the increaso in all parts of tho country. Some counter felts of f.ilver coins have appeared on the Pacific coast that are quite as good nsthcgc'riimu'. both in weight and fineness-, tird made from dies of excellent workmanship. liiciipml rrom Jail, Toledo, O., Nov. 12.
