"At this crisis in the history of the
Anglo-Saxon race there are two paths.
One leads we know whither, but in the
end through war, with all its accom
paniments of carnage, unspeakable
suffering and hideous desolation, to
the inevitable sequel of hatred, bit
terness and disruption of our race. It
is this path we ask you to join us in
an effort to make impossible. Not on
the grounds of political equity do we
address you; but we are united to you
by many ties. We are proud of the
United States. There is nothing in our
history that has earned us more glory
than the conquest of the vast Amer
ican continent by the Anglo-Saxon
race. When our pride is humbled by
a report of something that you do
better than ourselves, it. is also up
lifted by the consciousness that you
are our kith and kin."
Aft r dwelling upon the intimate ties
of relationship and brotherly senti
ment, the appeal continues:
"There is no anti-American feeling
among Englishmen. It is. impossible
that there can be any anti-English
feeling among Americans. For two
such nations to take up arms wo.ild
be civil war, not differing from your
calamitous struggle of rhirly years
aso, except that the cause were im
measurably less humane, less tragic
and less inevitable."
DISHONOR OF LITERATURE.
After referring to the tie that licra-
Iture makes the appeal concludes:
"If war should occur between Eng
land and America, English literature
would lie dishonored and disfigured for
a century to come. Patriotic songs,
histories of victory and defeat, records
of humiliation and disgrace, stories of
burning wrongs and unavenged in
sults—these would be branded deep in
the hearts of our peoples. They would
so express themselves in poems, novels
and plays as to make It impossible
for any of us who live through the
fratricidal war to take up again the
former love and friendship for the
united Anglo-Saxon race that owns the
great names of Cromwell, Washington,
Nelson. Cordon. Grant, Shakespeare
and Milton. There is such a future as
no other race has had in the history
of the worlds, a future that will be

WASHINGTON, Dec. 24. — President
Cleveland is devoting a large part of
his time to the consideration of the
personnel of the Venezuelan boundary
commission, to the exclusion of practi
cally all other public matters, includ
ing that of another bond issue, which
latter matter he regards as temporarily
at least in the hands of congress. In
making his selection of the boundary
commission the president, it is said,
will be guided by only one considera
tion, that the members should be men
of international reputation for high
character and intellectual attainments.
He will use the greatest care in his se
lections for the reason that it is ex
pected the work of the commission will
be largely of an ex-parte nature, and
hence the character of the commission
must be such as to command for their
conclusions the full confidence and re
spect of all nations. It is thought that
the president is especially anxious that
Chief Justice Fuller, of the United
States supreme court, should lead the
commission, but there are said to be
reasons why it would not be expedient
for the chief justice to relinquish, even
for a short time, his place as presiding
officer of the court. The matter, how
ever, it is believed, has not yet been
definitely settled, and Mr. Fuller still
may be called on to form one of the

en the commission and If he has not
accepted ii it is thought he will surely
do so. The name of ex-Secretary Whit
ney will be suggested, and It is be
lieved that the president now has it
under consideration. The fact that Mr.
.1 stice Harlan, of the United States su
pieme court, served on the Bering sea
commission has naturally brought for
ward his name In connection with the
Venezuelan commission, but there are
good reasons to believe that his name
has been passed over. The name of
ex-Senator George F. Edmunds, of
Vermont, has been considered, but
whether he would accept is by no
means a certainty, nor can it be stat
ed positively that the president Is ful
ly satisfied as to the expediency of his
appointment. Many other names have
been suggested -and are now under con
sideration. Owing to the adjournment
of the senate until Friday, and the
house until Thursday, no announce

Immediate Steps to Strengthen
WASHINGTON, Dec. 24.— 1t is now
learned that the main purpose of Gen.
Miles' visit to the cities of the South
Atlantic coast was to ascertain by per
son, inspection the actual condition
of the coast defenses in that section,
and to call the attention of the South
ern people to the exposed position they
would occupy in the event of hostil
ities. He was particularly impressed
with the antiquated condition of the
defenses at Port Monroe, which are
relied upon not only to guard the na
tional capital and Baltimore, Norfolk
and Richmond from attack by. water,
out even more to form an impregnable
base of naval operations and as re
fuge for our warships in the event that
they are forced to retire before an
overwhelming hostile naval force. Al
though the war department has very
little money available it probably will
take immediate steps to Improve the
defenses there, relying on sufficient ap
propriations from the present congress
to restore the works to the standing
they had at the breaking out of the
Civil war. namely, one of the stron
est systems of defense ln the world.
AS VIEWED BY CARNEGIE.
Strong Reasons Why England
NEW YORK, Dec. 24.— Following is
the full text of Andrew Carnegie's
communication cabled to the London
Times and published this morning:
"Editor of the Times, London— A
very great power has declined arbitra
tion in a boundary dispute with a very
weak power, because part of the ter
ritory in dispute has been settled by
its citizens, whom it is bound to hon
or and protect. The great power might,
however, have offered to accept peace
ful arbitration for the whole dispute,
provided a value was first agreed upon,
or that arbitration should fix one on
the settled territory, continued posses
sion of which was held necessary.
Thus would the principal of arbitra
tion have been upheld and honor
doubly protected: title is protected by
honorable purchase, if unexpectedly
found defective, and all her citizens
securely guarded. There should be
little difficulty In securing arbitration
in this form through your able am
bassador at Washington, aided by the
good offices of your kindred nation,
whose services In your recent dispute
with Nicaragua had so happy an issue.
Perhaps a price could be obtained
without arbitration, although this is
less probable and infinitely less de
sirable, since arbitration is the pre
cious jewel of our age and should not
"Those who have seen the Christian
substitute for barbarous, war. at least
so far as boundary disputes were con
cerned, cannot but believe that the
people of England would favor arbi
tration with weak and helpless Vene
zuela, thus rendered compatible in
any event with the performance with
all her honorable obligations.,, and re
duced simply to a question of pay
ment to perfect her title if found de
fective by impartial arbitrators after
careful investigation. This is a mat
ter at present resting solely between
England and Venezuela, as far as ar
bitration is now concerned, but that
it would be hailed by the American
people as a just mode of settlement
and restore unclouded friendship be
tween the two great Anglo-Saxon na
tions should not ensure ft* lens careful
or less favorable consideration.
"In this crisis, when the passions of
men are so "wildly stirred, it is im
politic to refer to the strained rela
tions between the two nations that
embrace all our race, but It Is all Im
portant for the people of both lands to
remember that the deplorable Irrita
tion now existing has Its whole cause
in the refusal of p2aceable arbitration
upon a point of honor,, which it is
held renders the continued possession
of some disputed territory necessary,
but which can readily be safeguarded
and yet arbitration be made the in
strument of peaceful and honorable
settlement for all parties concerned.
Richard H. Dana Admires His At
BOSTON, Mass., Dec. 24.— Richard
H. Dana, of Cambridge, well known
as a political economist and finan
cier, is of the opinion that there seems
to be no sufficient cause for the gen
eral alarm which has so Injured busi
ness, nor for the criticisms that have
followed the president's Venezuelan
message. Mr. Dana said among other
things: "It has been stated that this
message is but a piece of political
buncombe, got up for campaign pur
poses. If it were such it would show
very bad judgment on the part of its
author, but apart from that, such an
accusation seems peculiarly unjust
when applied to President Cleveland,
who has twice taken stands, once on
the tariff and again in favor of sound
money, each requiring great moral
courage and political fearlessness."
Russians Showing Their Dislike
LONDON,, Dec. 24.— A dispatch from
Moscow to the Standard says: "The
entire Russian press discusses the
chances of a conflict between England
and America with an ardor approach
ing enthusiasm, and in a tone of frank
hostility to England."

six men, were lashed to her rigging
throughout the night, the sea being so
heavy as to render it impossible for

rescued several of the crew. The
others, however, remained lashed to
the rigging until the vessel broke up.
Nineteen of the crew perished, includ
ing the captain, his wife and son and
all the officers. The captain, with
his son strapped to his back, made a
gallant attempt to swim ashore, while
the mate swam with a woman tied to
big back. A large steamer is ashore

A large three-masted vessel was
seen today flying signals of dis

which went to her assistance was
capsized and her crew of sixteen men
were drowned. A second lifeboat
which started for the rescue was also
overturned, but the crew managed to
cling to the boat, which was finally
righted, and returned to the shore
with the greatest difficulty, the bot
tom of the boat being stove in. The
coxswain states that he did not see
any one on board the ship. Whether
the first lifeboat took off the crew
before capsizing is not known. The
name of the vessel is also unknown,
but she is believed to be a foreigner.

NEW YORK, Dec. 24.— A local pa
per says: J. P. Morgan, who
with August Belmont organized the

Bankers who knew of his departure,
and who are also aware of the infor

that Mr. Morgan went over to Wash

so by the president. If this is is so,
it would seem to indicate that the pres

The object of putting the hotel into

Nels Pierson, Charged With I.nr
ceny, Under Arrest.
Nels Pierson, residing at 901 Free
mont street, was yesterday arrested by
Capt. Hanft, of the Margaret street
station, and is being held awaiting the
arrival of Sheriff Bodkin, of Clay coun
ty, where he will be taken today to
answer to the charge of grand larceny
preferred by Stephen Wold, a citizen
of Moorhead. The articles alleged to
have been stolen are a buggy pole and
set of harness, valued at $25.
Pierson was harvesting near Moor
head last fall, when the theft is said
to have taken place, and at the end
of the season drove home to St. Paul,
utilizing. It Is alleged, the stolen arti
cles as part of his traveling outfit.
Where he obtained the horse and bug
gy is not known.
Last Thursday Capt. Hanft, hearing
Pierson was at his home, went to ar
rest him. When he arrived his man
had "flown," but a search of the stable
revealed evidence of his late presence.
In the manger were the mutilated re
mains of a horse, In fact the animal
had been cut into such small pieces
as to be scarcely recognizable. In one
corner the hoofs were found, and other
parts of the animal were also found.
Pierson claims that the harness was
loaned him a.nd that he bought the
horse—a cripple— from some one in this
city. Sheriff Bodkin telegraphed last
night that he would be in St. Paul
after his prisoner today.

away hundreds of autograph letters
of men famous,' in modern and ancient
history. While in London last sum
mer O. O. 'Stealy, the Washington cor
respondent of the Louisville Courier-
Journal, found among these old let
ters an. autograph one from George
Washington, written from Philadel
phia, April 22, 1793, to .Lord Earl of
Buchan. A part of the letter re
fers to foreign complications and fur
nishes an 'interesting chapter at this
time. In the letter was the following
note, written by the Earl of Buchan
on the 18th of January, 1793:
• "I' wrote to Mr. Washington on
the happy prospects America might
entertain, If by any means it could
abstain from mingling European pol
itics. I laid before him the vanity and
folly of opening the indulgence of na
tional pride, vanity and resentment; to
the slow but certain benefits to be per
manently obtained by peace and Inter
national prosperity. I ventured also
to recommend as great objects to the
executive of America peace and union
with the red natives and attention to
national education. To these senti
. ments the president answered in the
following letter." . .'.-'•■•'
; The first part of the letter related to
private affairs and indicates that Gen.
Washington and Lord Buchan. were
old and intimate friends. T hen the
letter proceeds as follows: '

"The favorable wishes which your

by all its citizens and every lover of

which, and its happiness, is very judi
ciously portrayed in these words of
your letter— 'to be little heard of In the
great world of politics.' These words,
I can assure your lordship, are expres
sive of my sentiments on this head.
And I believe It Is the sincere wish
of United America to have nothing to

squabbles of European nations; but, on
the contrary, to exchange commodities
and live In peace and unity with all
the Inhabitants of the earth, and this
I am persuaded they will do if right
fully it can be done. To administer
justice, to and receive it from every
power with whom they are connected
will. I hope, be always found a most
prominent feature in -the administra

self that nothing short of imperious
necessity can occasion a breach with
any of them. Under such a system, if
we are allowed to pursue it, the agri
culture and mechanical arts, the wealth
and population of these states will in
crease with that degree of rapidity as
to baffle all calculations and must sur
pass any idea your lordship can hith
erto have entertained on the occasion.
To evince that our views (whether real
ized or not) are expanded, I take the
liberty of sending you the plan of a
, new city, situated about the -center of
the union of these states, which is de
signed for the permanent seat of the
government— and we are at this mo
ment deeply engaged and far advanced
in extending the interest and naviga
tion of the river (Potomac), on the way
it stands and the branches thereof,
through a tract of rich country for
hundreds of miles as any in the world.
' "Nor Is this a solitary instance of
attempts of the kind, although It is
the only one which is near completion
and in partial use. Several other im
portant ones are commenced and little
doubt is entertained that in ten years,
if left undisturbed, we shall open a
communication by water with all the
lakes northward and westward of us,
with which we have territorial connec
tions, and an inland navigation in a
few years more from Rhode Island to
Georgia. Inclusively, partly by cuts be
tween the great bays and sounds and
partly between the islands and sand
banks from the main from Albemarle
sound to the River St. Mary s. To
these may also be added the bridges
over considerable rivers and the com
mencement of turnpike roads as fur
ther Indication of the improvements in
hand. ::r- _' . . T
"With great esteem and respect, I
have the honor to be, .
"Your lordship's most ob dt and hon
orable servant. ■■_ • „

Rufus Goff, who has charge of the
Standard Lumber company's business
In the woods, returned from Partridge
yesterday and sums up the situation
as follows: "A very large amount of
skidding has been done and some con
cerns are busy hauling, in fact, most
of them, but snow was never needed
worse than it is now. They are haul
ing about 4,000 feet to the load, and
this is all that can be hauled because
the swamps are too soft in spots. If
we could get four or five Inches of
snow within the next forty-eight
hours, you would see an unusual ac
tivity in the camps."
The King's Daughters did a noble
work among the poor and destitute of

advanced aue. Thanks to Dr. Char
cot's Kola Nervine Tablets, however,
although fifty-six years of age I am
satisfied that I am today in as good
condition. In every respect, as I was
at thirty-five. Anything that will ac
complish such wonderful results as
this should be heralded to the world.
