THE WOQD HEIRS SETTLE.
The Famous Emma Silver Mine Caae
Denver, Aiprll 4. The famous Wood
heirs litigation has been settled and
the plalnftlffs have come Inito posses
sion of mining property In Apen val
ued at $W,000,000. It was claimed that
W. J. Wood, a poor Canadian who lo
cated the Emma mine, was defrauded
of his Interests in thalt property. At
the time of Us doaith he did not know
hew valuable H was, and his heirs
elgned away their claims to lit for al
most notihlng. When they discovered
what they had done they consulted
attorneys and a suit wta begun In
the Undted States court. They ob
tained a dgiement for one-third inter
est in the Emma mine, and for $539,000
In oarth. The defentTanM finally
agreed to settle the matter without
funnher lltifii'aitlon and all the heirs
will be enriched. When Aspen was In
her halcyon days before the depression
of silver, mining property invoflved in
this litigation was en 1 1 mated to be
worth from $10,000,000 to $17,000,000. It

insurgents will begin. The forces will
number something over 4,000. At the

A PLUCKT NATION.
vzu - April 14. It is stated ly
I persons m a pomaon to speak wltn I
authority, that as soon as Venezuela
is convinced that Great Britain has
finally decided, not to arbitrate or set
tle the boundary dispute as suggested
by the Tnttsd States through Amba-
sailor Bayard, the southern republic
will regretfully but resolutely resort
to what she regards as her only course
a resort to force. It Is declared that
her citizens are ready to see their
homes and their cities desolated and
laid in ashes rather than to submit
to what they regurd as national dis
honor. It is said that the contention
with Great Britain is not so much one
of territory as of sentiment. So flrr.
ly impressed have ithe people become
with this opinion, It is expressed that
they would rather see the country go
out of existence than to pass Into the
practical! control of foreign hsmds. A
strong feeling exists in the Venezuelan
government 'that the United States
wont stand Idly by if the resort to
force is made.

AMERICAN CATTXJS IN CANADA.
Washington, April 4. Officials of the
bureau of animal industry do not re
gard the action of the Canadian gov
ernment In directing the qturaattne
office to be particularly s'trict in their
Inspection of cattle from the south
western states as toeing (particularly
important. Practically no American
cattle are sent into Canada because
the restrictions already enforced are
virtually prohibitive. Nevertheleas,
frequent reports of the character od
this one upon which the Canadian gov
ernment bases Its action is annoying
to the department because they are
unjust to the cattle interests of the
country, and tend to the Injury of
business with other countries. Tho
officers of the bureau have been called
upon frequently of late to reiterate
the assertiion that there has been no
proof of the existence of a case ot
pleuro-pneumonHa in- this country for
more than two years.
