W" s Agent Mortgagee ENGLAND BACKS OUT, Shows a Willingness to Ar bitrate on Venezuela, SHE BUYS DELOGOA BAY, And the African Situation Becomes More Critical. 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 added: 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.

Ol.-Un reply to a , Jan. 01.4lii re 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.

IhtOWNHViUiH, Jan. 8.-Having seen a statement, made by the Foxes now In Jail at Albany for burglarizing stolen at ('rawfinlsvlln, that my Into son nnd the elder .Nfontgomery had a dltliculty at a school meeting, I wish to state that there Is not one word of truth In It. My son and Montgomery lived Indifferent school districts, and never met at a school moot lug In their lives, as Is well known here and in tho district In which Montgomery lived. I wish nlsu to state that my son had Jjjt tho Montgomery from want for somo time by furnishing them flour when they could not got It nnywhoio else, They were to pay him when they sold their hops, so he called In to their place ,on his nay homo tho evening that he was murdered, as they had sold their hops and were to pay him. So far as young Montompry Is con corned. It is very painful for me to mention hir name, and it makes hu manity shudder to think of such a fearful crime.
