ENGLAND BACKS OUT,
Shows a Willingness to Ar
bitrate on Venezuela,
SHE BUYS DELOGOA BAY,
And the African Situation Becomes
London, .Inn. 10. The movement
In favor of arbitrating the Vonezcr.
lan question with the. United States
Is growing day by day. There Is a
decided change of sentiment there.
The unbending antagonism to arbi
trate the Venezeulan boundary dis
pute which was at first shown In high
circles, hns almost completely dlsap
pcaied, and matters look much more
satisfactory than they have at any
time since the dispute commenced.
Ciiicaqo, Jan. 11). A special to the
Journal from Washington says:
"Tim entMirt tl.t.t 1,- TI..L l,.l. .. w.
strengthening their outposts In Ven
ezuela and advancing Into Venezuela
Is true. I have myself received today
a private dispatch from there corrobor
ating It," so said Congressman Living
ston, of Georgia, this afternoon. Ho
Q"I cannot show you the dispatch; It
Isnprlvatc. You can, however, rely
on It. I called on tho Vcuczuelan
minister this morning and asked him
to uso his inlluenco with Crespo to
keep back the Venezuelan troops.
Should they advance It would precipi
tate a conlllct at once. That would
render our Venezuelan commission
useless. Wo would bo controlled to
back up Venezuela, and we would
bo plunged Into war at once."
DKLAQOA HAY TKOUHLK.
London, Jan. 10. The most Impor
ant development In South African
speculation today is the fact that In
spite of all denials it Is now belloved
in many quarters that there Is somo
truth In tho rumor that Great Brltlan
has purchased Delagoa bay from
Portugal. Ah It Is announced that
tho government of tho Transvaal has
demanded, among other things that
Great Brltlan forego her right to ob
tain possession of Dclngoa bay, and as
Germany may look upon this as a
move which will seriously threaten
the future of the Transvaal situation,
If the report Is true, matters will be
come more critical.
AKRESTED FOIl TREASON.
JonANNSiiuna, Jan. 10. Twenty
two members of the reform committee
Including Colonel Rhodes, a brother
of Cecil Itholes.SlrDrummond Dunbar
Lionel Philips and Dr. D. Sauer
were arrested at their club last even
ing, on charge of high treason, and
convoyed under an escort to Pretoria.
Perfect 'quiet prevails here. Tho
populace Is Indifferent. Tho Ultland
ors are disarming.
London, Jan. 10. Tho chances of
war between Great Britain and Ger
many are looked upon as remotc,thcro
being a decided tono of back down In
the utterances of the German press
toward Great Britain.
The Pall Mall Gjizetto says: "Stops
were taken In tho highest quarters to
obtain by family Influence a full
explanation from Emperor William,
and the communications which
passed have done more than anything
to bring about a change of tone In the
German olllcial press toward Great
Britain. German iiew8papcrs,ofllclal,
scml-otllcial and hostile, are tumbling
over one another In their anxiety to
explain that tho tension of relations
was tho fault of England."
The receipt of a dispatch from Pre
toria, announcing tho extreme de
mands of tho South African republlo
for the surrender of all British rights
and suzerainty, etc., over Transvaal
and Delagoa bay, however, has again
changed the complexion of allalrs.
Meantime there Is little or no abate
merit of the nntl-Gcrmnti feeling here.
At n meeting of tho London radical
federation hero today u resolulon was
passed demanding tho removal of
jrcmpcror iiiinui irnm me nriiisn
army and naval list.". j
A' baseless report that the oiileers of i
tho I'M rut Dragoons, In garrison at
Dublin, or which Emperor William
was made honorary colonel by Queen
Victoria, had burned his majesty In
ctllgy, was received with cheering.
Tho colonel of the First Dragoons
yesterday afternoon telegraphed that
there Is no ground for this story. It
Is said that before tho receipt of this
olllcial denial the German ambassador,
Count von Ilatzfcldt Wlldenhurg,
made representations on the subject
to the Marquis of Salisbury, asking to
bo informed as to the truth of tho re
port. At the foreign oillce yesterday utter
noon the dispatch spying that the
Doers demanded tlic'baushment 'of
Mr. Rhodes from Afrlcit and thonban
donmentof thorightsof Gccat Britain
regarding the Transvaal and Delagoa
bay were discredited on the grounds
that Sir Hercules Robinson, governor
of Cape Colony, In hldlspatches to
the colonial oillce made ho mention of
any such demands or indentions.
NO TRUTH IfklT.
Nkw Youtc, Jan. Ol.-Un reply to a

cablegram of Inquiry nstto the stories
sent from London that y'ecil Rhodes,
until lately premier of Capo Colony,
had started, or was about to start a
movement for tho organization of a
vast Independent republic in South
Africa, the World has received tho
following cablegram from Capo tewn:
'No truth in the report of tho
action attributed to Mr. Rhodes,'
Tho dispatches havo already told of
Mr. Rhodes' resignation as premier,
but the olllco Is tilled by one of his
lieutenants, and Londonvc6ntlhues to
gossip about Mr. Rhodes' dictatorial
attitude and -the possibilities of his
making use of It to separate South
Africa from the British empire.
