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 ing of the board of arbitration In New York, at which the board decided to extend its jurisdiction so that it would Include cases similar to the appeal in the Western League. The same board vas re-elected for another year. A new board of directors was chosen, the play ing rules committee appointed, and Mck Young was re-elected to serve for a term of four years in addition to one year of his present term which he still has to serve. The vote con tinuing Young in office was unanimous. The board of directors chosen consists of Friedman, Wagner, Soden, Stuckey, Von der Ahe and Robinson. The playing rules committee is com posed of Hart, Hanlon and Reach. The report of the Harry Wright day com mute" showed that a total of J3.4U9 had been received for the fund. At the meeting of the Western League only two changes in the con stitution were made, one in section 5 relating to application for membership and one in section G. which regulates fines Imposed for violating the limit of the saiary list. The latter was en tirely wiped out. The teams have eigned a separate agreement which has somewhat reduced the limit of salaries. The old circuit will remain unchanged. Grand Rapids and Columbus having been granted renewed franchises. B. B. Johnson, of Cincinnati, was re-elected president, secretary and treasurer for one year. COMMISSIONER MILLER RESIGNS. II !

IT IS BUT A MATTER OP DETAIL,1 i And Does Xot Affect the Merits of the Con- trorenT Selection of the Four Remain ing" Arbitrator. Still Opes More Fart. Regarding the Agreement Britbtnera Getting at the "Nub- of the Result-Interview by Proxy with King (Hear. 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 patches. 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 days ago. 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 trators. PITH or THE VFXEZt'FXA CAfte. St James Gazette Seem. To Be nigging Id That IX re et Ion. ijonaon. .ov. u. The St. James Gazette publishes a leading artlrl headed "An Historic Moment." in the course of which It says: "Isord Salis bury's great admission of the prln ciple that the United Statea has the right to Intervene In frontier disputes of the American powers and to com pel the disputants to arbitrate alto gether transcends in importance the question of the Guiana boundary. It is a formal recognition of the hegemony of the United States on the American continent, and gives the president a position In the new world which the mediaeval popes and emperors tried vainly to claim in Europe." The Speaker publishes an article by a "leading publicist" In which the writer, after recalling Lord Salisbury's reply to Secretary Olney in regard to Monroeism says: "An entirely new or der cf things has b?en established by the Anelo-AmerU an under! andlng. Mr. Olney's extension vt the Monroe dor- trine, itself not before acknowledged by any European power, has tin received the sanction of Great Britain.

Bat It Wonld Nat Ftr Jt the Bight Thing to say so Now. 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 ceived an official communication re garding the arbitration, he Is unable at present to make a statement cn the subject." It was explained that while his ma jesty has expressed his willingness to the Swedish minister at Wabhingion to act as arbitrator as proposed, his majesty must receive a formal, of- fiial request to act before he can give his conrent. but there Is no doubt that he will asree to act. It Is further stated that, as In prc-vli-ua cass. for instam-e wr.n King Humbert of Italy and the president of the Swl republic conser-tfd to act In a similar capacity the king of Sweden and Norway will ppolnt a pcrynrrl rpres.Ttntlve. who will attend the in'-e'.lrgs of the court of arbitration.
