St. Paul. Dec. S.—Agent Fullerton,
the state game and tisii commission,
irrived in St. Paul to-day from Park

was successful in breaking up the
illeged killing of deer by tlie Leech

Agent Fullerton arrested four of the
Indians ami seized '.'•()» pounds of veni

Tlie cache was found by the game
wardens in a heavy thicket near Lake
George in lluhhard county, just east
if Itasca Park. To get to the locality,
the game wardens were compelled to
•tit a road eight miles through the
underbrush, being assisted in this
work by a dozen settlers, who were
inxious to see the poachers punished.
The Indians, Mr. Fullerton learned,
had contracted to sell the venison at
live cents a pound for shipment Fast.
The venison was found hanging on
trees and was fiozen hard. The Li
llians arrested had been left to watch
the cache by the main body of hunt
ers, who number a dozen or more
braves. They were surprised and ap
tured at the point of Winchesters itl

Warden Stevens and the settlers. The
Indians were armed with heavy re

to Secretary Oiney's note of .Inly last,
touching the Venezuela boundary dis
pute is adverse to the proposition to
arbitrate the title to the laniN lying
westward of the Sehomherg line, the
fact that the reply itself has not yet
reached Washington precludes tin
idea of any speedy action by our
government in this matter. When the
reply is received by Sir Julian Paitnce
fote, he may occupy himself several
flays, tt least, in its careful considera
tion, in order that lie may make sure
that lie is transmitting to Secretary
Olney the views of his government,
so far as it is proper for them to be
communicated to the United States
government without, at the same
time, imparting any portion of the
note that may lie framed for his
private guidance. Then the absence
of the president from Washington
would operate further delay lo the
proceedings by the state department,
for Secretary Olney would not feel
justified in making a forward move
ment at this stage of the case, which
is now commonly regarded as at least
approaching a critical point, without
advising fully with the president. As
Ihe latter has promised congress to
communicate in a special message
the nature of Lord Salisbury's reply,
further delay may be caused by the
preparation of this •-sage. so. on

next step can be iak«-n before the
