MONROE DOCTRINE STATED
resolution l'jtoi'oundkd in the
unii-kd siites senate.
Senator howcll ol New Jernoy Protest
Aealimt President Clrvtlnnd' Pre
seuliitloii ol the Iflnue ufWr.
Senator Davis of Minnesota, a
member of. the coinmitteo on
foreign rolntioiiB, submitted a
favorable report on the resolution
submitted by him enunciating the
Monroo doctrino. Tho preamblo
gave tho history of tho doctrine
and assorted that its principles
havo boon and now aro the right
ful policy of the United States,
and it is therefore
Resolved, That tho United
States of America rcaflirms and
confirms tho doctrines and princi
jiles promulgated by President
Monroe in his message of Decem
ber 2, 1823, and declares that it
will ussont and maintain that doc
trine aud those principles, and
regard any infringement
thoroof, ami particularly any at
tompt by any European powor to
tako or acquire any now territory
on the American continents or
nny islands adjacent thereto for
any right of sovereignty or domi
nion in tho same, in any case or
instauco 'as to which tho United
States shall deem such attempt to
bo dangerous to its peace or safety,
by or through force, purchase,
cession, occupation, pledge, colo
nization, protectorate or by con
trol of easomout in a canal or
other means 6f transri across tho
American isthmus, whethor on
unfounded protensions of right in
cases of alleged boundary disputes
or under other unfounded preten
sions, as the manifest action of an
unfriendly disposition toward the
United States and as an interposi
tion which it would bo impossible
in any form for tho Unitod States
to regard with indifference.
At Davis' request the resolution
went to tho Senate calendar.
Gray (D.) of Dolawaro stated
that ho desired it understood that
tho favorable report was not un
Wolcott (R.) of Colorado, gave
notice that ho would on Wednes
day address the Sonato on Sowoll's
resolution placing limitations on
tho Monroe doctrine.
Senator Sowoll (Republican) of
New Jersey addressed tho Sonato
same day on his resolution citing
that President Cleveland had ex
tended tho Monroo doctrino be
yond its proper scope and enunci
ating tho principle that tho doc
trino was for tho interest of tho
United States and was not an ob
ligation to aid and protect south
ern republics. Tho resolution re
cites that tho President's course
was promaturo and that tho Mon
roo doctrino does not commit tho
United States to a protectorate of
South American countries.
Sowoll said tho President's Ven
ezuelan message presented ques
tions of most sorioiiB import. L'ho
Senator, reading from tho mossago,
said tho Presidont clearly desired
to present tho contingency of war.
Throughout tho message and let
ters of tho Secretary of Shite tho
determination was clear to mako
this construction of tho doctrino
absolutely final and conclusive
without roforonco to the results.
Tho Sonator quoted from resolu
tions of Congress in 1825 and
speeches by Mr. "Webster, show
ing the exact purposes and origin
al scopo of tho Monroo doctrine.
In 1823 Senator Clayton of Dela
ware pointed out in tho Sonato
that the doctrino of Monroo was
not addressed to foroign nations
but was a more coramunicationto
Congress, which Congress declin
ed at tho timo and had over sinco
doclined to accept.
At tho oIobo of Sowell's speech,
Daniel, (D ,) of Virginia give no
tico that 'ho would address, tho
Sonato on tho subject next Thursday.
