Authorities Aro Interested in tho
Washington, Oot. 3. Reports from
Minnesota, whero lives Donaln Grant,
the hoad of tbo American-Venezuelan
syndtcato, that the syndicate will meet
in Now York today have awakened
Interest In Washington owing to its
bearing on the negotiations between
the United States and Great Britain
concerning Venezuela. Tbo St. Pul
advices announced that Secretary
Oluey has sent three letters to Ambas
sador Bayard instructing him to notify
Great Brltlan that unless the Venenzu
elan question was submitted to arbitra
tion within 00 days, tbo United States
would enforce tho Monroe doctrine.
That suoh letters have been sont can
not bo confirmed at the Btato depart
ment. Secretary Olney will not admit
that ho has sent ono or tbreo letters on
tho subject, nor will he glvo any inti
mation as to tbo status of tho question.
Senor Andrade, tbo Venonouelan min
ister, said today (bat ho was unin
formed as to any such letters.
In the absence ot information from
ofllcial quarters, Botuo crodonco is given
the report that the state department is
acting, for tho reason that it substan
tially agrees with what it has beou
possible to learn from unotllclal sources.
It Is believed, however, that the refer
ou co to Great firltlan's answering in
00 days means that tho executlvo
branches in Washington desire Inform
ation buforo congress assembles, about
00 days henco. The last congress
adopted the Livingston resolution re
queuing Great ttrltlau to arbitrate,
and It would be natural that tho execu
tlvo branch should Inform congress
what answer Great Brltlan had giver.
It Is believed the stato department,
with duo dlplomatlo courtesy, has sug
gested to Great Brltlan that tho meet
ing of congress in December makes it
desirable that an unswer should be
made within tho intervening period,
While this view Is not entertained in
some quarters, tho last olUcial com
munication admitted by tbo state de
partment to havo been sent is the let
ter of the late Secretary Greaham to
Mr. Bayard last December, published
in tbo stato department red book, with
the unsatisfactory reply of Lord Rose
bory, stating that Great Brltlan bad al
ways beeu willing to arbitrate as to a
part or the land Involved, but not as to
all of It.
Secretary Carallle hae returned to the
city and had an interview with ex-
Representative Wilkinson, of Loulsana

controversy. Mr. Wilkinson appealed
to tho secretary in behalf ol the plant
ers on much the same lines as had been
covered by Senator Catlerd and Senator
Blanchard at their Interviews with the
secretary. Mr. Carslllo, however, saw
no way in which ho could render tho
biunty claimants any aselstance, ex
cept possibly by ixpedltlnrf the hearing
an J the deolslon of the court of claims.
This ho was willing to do. Tho con
troller, ho said, had Jurisdiction oi the

cUlon adversely to the claimants or

Ho had chosen the latter alternative,
