The proceedings were opened by Dr.

man of the meeting. Mr. Wolfs name was
received with applause, which was re
newed when lie at.sumed the chair.
Mr. W. II. O. Simmons nominated Dr.
Cole for secretary, and that gentleman
was chosen, and the meeting was declared
ready for businiss. Mr. Wolf made a brief
introductory address. In which he said that
the object of the meeting was so well known
as one merely to make preparations for a

to go over that ground. It was not, he said,
an occasion ror self-laudation by American
citizens, but one for work and sympathy

LETTER FROM QUESADO.
He would take this occasion of having
read to the meeting a communication which
he had received from one of the leading
Cubansof New York, Mr. Gonzales Quesado.

of gelling an Idea of the character of

said that the work was progressing actively

He suggested that the meeting adopt
resolution? similar tu those passed by the,

Mr. Wolt here had the secretary read

advocated the enlistment of the services

water line, with 38 feet beam. At her
normal draft of ileven feet her displace
ment Is 1,371 tons. She Is schooner rigged,
with two smoke pipes, and her total coal
bunker capacity is 390 tons.
She is provided" with two types otboilcrs,

secure over fourteen or fifteen knots an
hour, that being sufficient for the duties
required of such a vessel.
The main battery consists of eight four

of these guns' are on theupper deck, and
two one-pounder rapid-firp guns, and two
Gatiing guns. There is-one fixed torpedo
tube mounted in the bow, and one search

WILMINGTON FOR RIVER SERVICE.
The Wilmington has been built for en
tirely different service. Although In
every respect ;a perfectly safe sea-going
vessel, the Wilmington, anil her sister ship,
tlie Helena, whose launch will not take
place for several weeks, are designed es
pecially for river service. It is frequently
necessary to send gunboats on foreign sta
tions, long distances np rivers to afford
protection to American citizens. Such
v cssels of necessity must be of light i-af t,
sometimes the difference of a foot in draft
meaning success or failure of such an ex
pedition. On the Asiatic station, the paddlewhecl
steamer Monocacy has for many years
rendered valuable assistance to American
missionaries and other citizens In China,
at times going up--Chlnese rivers a thou
sand miles from the sea, and merely by her
presence preventln-",riot and danger to
foreigners of every .nationality Jn China.
In external appearance the Wilmington
resembles a small battlcsBlp, having a large
military masf wltTi !two- military tops,
similar In all respects to. the one on the

RITiSH IH VENEZUELA
England's Policy Causes Com
ment Among Diplomats.
A RUPTURE HOT TROBABLE
Venezuelnns Occupy Uig; One Hank of
the Uruun, the English the Other.
Dunning n Bond ns uergested by
Cliiunt.erluln Would Touch tho
AmcTlcitu Syndicate's Concession.
The aggressive policy of Uie British
government In Venezuela, as outlined in
the dispatches yesterday from London,
has caused excited comment in diplomatic
circles. It is taken as an indication In
some quarters, lliat Her Majesty' govern
ment will not. under any clrcunutancES,
t arbitrate a foot of territory in dispute
between England and Venezuela, t,o which
the former lays claim.
Whether the fortification of the frontier
nt Uruan will be followed by hostilities
between the British government and the
Venezuelans cannot at, present be fore
told. Uruan Is a point which is occupied
by the forces of both governments. The
l Britih hold the right bank of the river
niHl the Venezuelans uie leir. ikiuK. me
military posts of the two governments
are situated at the Juncture of three rivers,
the Cuyani, Uruan aixl Yuruari.
NO OVEUT ACT PROBABLE:
No overt act. It Is said, is likely to
follow the planting of one or more Maxim
guns on the British side of the Uruan, pro
vided the British soldiery remain on the
right bank of the stream, which they
regard as the line of their possessloas.
While the Venezuelans will look, with
strong dlsravorupnin Great Britain's action,
they vv ill not. It Is said, cross the river,
or so'coiiduct themselves as to Justify the
British In crossing. The Venezuelan gov
ernment will, in all probability, send
additional troops to this point, but this, it
is believed, will be a mere precautionary
measure, and not witb any intention of
engaging the British forces.
If the suggestion of the RightHon Joseph
Chamberlain, the British secretary of
state for the colonies, that a road be cut
from Port liariina to the Cuyunl River, is
adopted, the United States is likely to be
drawn Into the affair. Inasmuch as the
proposed road will run through part of
the territory recently granted by the
Venezuelan government to an American
All this territory is claimed by her maj
esty's government, and this claim the Ven
ezuelans ridicule. The American syndicate
are making lliclr arrange ments to develop
their concessions, and they are evidently
constrained to believe that the United
States Government will see that they are
protected In their rights
BRITISH TROOPS IN BRAZIL.
The new developments in Venezuela have
bad the effect of calling attention anew to
the rciiort, telegraphed from Rio Janeiro
several days ago, that a body of British
troops were marching through Brazilian
territory on their way to Venezuela. It
is now believed by well posted diplomats,
that this report is well founded, that the
force in question consists probably of a
limited number of British police In British
Guiana, that they have marched bi a
southerly direction along the line of the
Eseqtilb river until they reached the neutral
territory in dispute between Great Britain
and Brazil, and that they are now crossing
this with a view ot-enterlng a part of
Venezuela not occupied by the native troops.
If it, shall be shown that this Is really
the cose, the purpose of the British Gov
ernment in sending this force in to Venezuela
can only be conjectured ,but it is not doubted
that a definite purpose lies behind it.
It was learned yesterday that the pro
posed road between Port Barima, which
lies in the northerly part of the British
possessions In Vcnezuta, near the Orinoco
river, to the Cuyani river, a distance of
about 10 nules, was first suggested half
a dozen years ago by the government of
British Guiana. The British Government
at that time declined to vote the money
to construct the road, and the proposition
now to do what was denied years ago
Is regarded as another indication that the
development of the country along the line
of the proposed routes is a part of the
plan not to surrender it.
