Sfnator DulmW I'nlnte'l Statrmpnt Tho
Speaker Anunuucvs the lluase Commit
Wasiii.ngton.Dcc. 23. Tho session of
the senate Saturday was notable in
bnn-ing out a very pointed statement
from Mr. Dubois, of Idaho, who was
understood to voice tho views of tho
silver element in tho senate, that no
financial legislation was possible along
the lines desired by President Clove
land. It was patent to every sen
ator, Mr. Dubois said, and should
be understood by tho country, that
the president's desire for tho retire
ment of the greenbacks, or tho author
ization of a bond issue, were utterly
impossible of accomplishment. Tho
only action tho senate would take, if
it was given tho opportunity to vote,
he said, would bo to adopt tho resolu
tion of Mr. Vest, of Missouri, offered
earlier in the day, directing1 tho coinago
of silver bullion in tho treasury and
the payment of government obliga
tions in silver. Tho only Immediate
response to tho president's message
was in the presentation of the two
resolutions favorable to silver, one by
Mr. Vest and another by Mr. llutler,
tho new populist member from North
Carolina, proposing gold payments
while tho metals wero at a parity and
silver payments when gold went to a
premium, lloth tho resolutions were
laid over and tho senato went Into ex
When the doors wero reopened Mr.
Mew art took tho floor for a sharp crit

sage and concluded by saying: Lot

United States obligations would bo

further raids on the treasury. If Lon

In the house Saturday tho president's
message was referred to tho ways and

Washington, Dec. 11. This has been
a day of excitement and surprise in
Washington. Events moved with
rapidity, and when thasun went down
public men in all branches of tho serv
ice wero net vons and worn out from
tho tension. Reports came of decline
in securities throughout tho country,
and hero In Washington affairs moved
with tho rapid pace of a kaleidoscope.
The houso Venezuelan commission bill
was amended in material respects by
the senato foroign relations commit
tee, and then by a sudden change In
sentiment in the senate was passed
unanimously just as it camo from the
That the administration has not
moved precipitately In tho Venezuelan
affair is ovidenced by the fact, which
has now becomo known, that Secre
tary Olnoy'8 famous letter dofining the
Monroe doctrine was considered for
fully two months before bolnir dis
patched to Ambassador liayard for de
livery to Lord Salisbury. Moreover,
it is a fact that the president's mes
sage, while perhaps hastily reduced to
exact form, really was tho subject for
deep deliberation almost six months,
for thero is good reason to beliovo the
adverse response of Lord Salisbury to
Secretary Olnoy's noto was expected
by the president. It Is noticed that tho
president's message Is a distinct ad
vance In our attitude upon tho letter
of tho secretary, for, whereas, the lat
ter was confined to a declaration of a
doctrine, the former proposed action
that went far beyond that point It
was this reason without doubt that
caused tho message to bo most care
fully considered for many months.
Further inquiry into tho subject
makes it appear that if tho commission
to bo appointed to ascertain tho acts
respecting tho Venezuelan boundary
finds It necessary to visit tho country
and to personally locato tho line, the
work will consume much moro time
than is generally believed to ba neces
sary. Outside of the voyage to Vene

than a month to and from, tho journey

small flying force of eight lightly

occurred, and which marks one end of
tho lino claimed by Great Britain,
could not bo raado In less than 23
days, so that if tho commission
is to make a proper examination of tho
country tho task, including the sea
voyage, will probably occupy almost

St. Loi'is, Dec. 21. Tho unprece

Washington, Dec. 21. Reports wero
current here yesterday, due largely to
the excitod state of the public on the
Venezuelan question, and to the prior
attack on him in the houso of regre
sentatlvcs by Mr. Barrett and others,
that the recall of Ambassador liay

retary Thurber, when asked
about tho matter, made an
absoluto denial, adding that the
ambassador's recall was not con

The Week's I'roeeedlns Given In Con
The business of the senato on the I8th was
mostly on the line of resolutions of inquiry.
Mr. Stew art advocated. In a speech, tho pend
ing resolution for a commission to Investigate
tho needs of labor. Mr. Caffery (La.) offered
a resolution Inquiring the reason for the sus
pension of the bounty on sugar, and Mr. Peffet
offorod a resolution of Inquiry as to tho order
refusing postal clerks permission to visit Wash
ington to lobby for their own Interests. Mr;
Oalllnger wanted to know how many aliens aro
cmplojed by tho government. ...In the houso
Mr. Flynn (Ok.) mado a llcry speech against
tho secretary of tho Interior In support of his
resolution Inquiring why agents had not been
appointed to allot the Wichita Indian lands.
Tho resolution was somewhat modified nnd
adopted. On motion of Mr. Moody (Mass ) a
bill was passed for tho amendment of the act
for tho establishment of bonded warehouses
for storing and cleaning rlco for export so as to
lncludu permission for curing and repicklng
nsh forcxport In such warehouses. Many bills
wero Introduced. Tho house then adjourned.
The president's message on the Venezuela
question occupied the attention of tho brief
session of tho senato on tho 17th Whon tho
messago was received Mr. Morgan, chairman
of the committee on foreign relations, moved
that tho senate go Into cxecutivo sosslon,
which at 12:40 was agreed to At one o'clock
tho doors of the senato were thrown open and
tho secretary of tho senato began tho reading
of tho president's message. As the reading of
mo messago closed tberewasa hearty hand
clapping from all quarters of the chamber.
Mr. Chandler, of New Hampshire leadlnr In
tho demonstration on tho republican side.
Many petitions relating to tho Turkish massa
cres and Cuba wero read. ...The proceedings
of tho houso were very tame. A partisan dc
bato took place oor tho formation of election
committees. Among tho bills Introduced was
ono by Mr. Dluo (Kan ) relating to and pro
tecting tho rights of pensioners. He also In
troduced a bill placing on tho pension roll nt
18 per month all members of tho Kansas mili
tia who served 30 days, and who are suffering
from phs slcal or mental disability The read
ing of tho president's messago was heartily re
celi cd by all parties In the houso.
The senato was in n patriotic mood on the
lfthand showed a disposition to do anything
In tho shape of legislation preparatory to
maintaining tho claims of this country In the
Venezuelan matter. Mr Chandler (N. IL) in
troduced a bill carrjlng an appropriation of
$10),000,000 for a hcay increase In tho national
armament, and propositions followed author
izing tho secretary of war to purchase lately
Improved battory devices. A resolution also
passed calling for Information as to Hrltish
encroachments In Alaska.... Tho session of
tho houso was short, but a bill unanimously
passed authorizing tho president to appoint a
commission to investigate tho Venezuelan
boundary. Mr Grout (Vt ) Introduced a bill
for tho appropriation of JIW.OOJ.OUO for the de
fense ot tho seaboard and Canadian frontier
Tho bill proposes to raise tho funds bv 3l-vcar
tnoper cent coin bonds in small denomina
tions to bo sold at tho sub-treasuries nnd post
olllces. Tho sentiment apparently was unani
mous In sustaining tho recommendations of
the president in his special messago.
WlltN the houso Venezuclin bill was laid
before tho senate on tho 10th, Mr.
Morgan moved Its referenco to the com
mittee on foreign relations. Ho addressed
tho senato In faor of the motion. Mr.
Morgan thought tho president right in tho
position ho had taken, but ho thought the mat
ter should bo considered deliberately without
undue hasto Mr. Sherman took tho same view
of tho question. Mr. Lodgo favored a vigorous
policy and that tho Monroe doctrine should be
upheld as American doctrlno, although not in
ternational law. Mr. Allen objected to consid
eration and tho bill went over. After an ex
ecutive session the senate adjourned. ...The
bouse was not in session.
The senate on the 20th. without tho formal
ity of a roll call, by a unanimous voto passed
the houso bill for tho appointment of a Vene
zuela commission, after a number of notable
speeches had been mado by Senators Sher
man, Teller. Mills, Lodge. Piatt, Turple,
Chandler, White, Caffroy, Call and Stewart,
and after Senator Morgan had withdrawn his
amendments, leaving It In Its original form. A
message was received from tho president on
tho financial condition ot tho country and sug
gesting that no holiday recess bo taken, but
that measures for the relief of tho treasury be
considered. The houso resolution for a holi
day recess had already been adopted, and
when the senate adjourned it was without ref
erence to that resolution, the house having ad
journed before the messago was sent In. ...The
proceedings of the house were unimportant.
That body being ready to adjourn for the holi
day recess, only awaited the action of the sen
ate on tho Venezuelan resolution. The presi
dent's message, however, had upset all plans.
Adjournment was to oaiuraay.
