SUDDEN DEATH OF FRANK LAWLER.
A Chicago Politician with a Reputation aa
Wide a the Country.
Cn;;30, Jan. Is Alderman Frank
Lawlet, who has been for years one of the
most widely known politicians in Chi
ca'ro, expired suddenly at his home, 42t
West Taylor street, yesterday morning.
The cause of deatli was heart disease Tho
news will como as a surprise, to tho wldo
circle of friends and acquaintances of tho
well-known pjlitician. Lawler was one
of tho most picturesque characters that
his been brforo the public in Chicago in
tho city's history. A sturdy Democrat, a
hard political lighter, a shrewd political
manager, ho was irrcprcssiblo us a poli
tician. Lawler represented tho Nineteenth ward
in tho city council, to which position ho
was electel last spring. He ran as an in-
pendent, defeating Thomas dallairher.

was his last victory, and It was one of his
hardest battles. He, from the tlmo ho be

defeating John V. Finerty for congress in

was indefatigable lu public life. Jo op
position could daulit him. When ho went
into a political campaign he went in to
win, and he invariably fouuiit the battlu
out against all odds to the bit ter end.
1 o all ho was courteous and affable, and
every onn who knew him liked him as a
guoJ-hearte J, treni.-il, fellow who, though a
hard lighter, lxjre malice to nono. A pathet
ic incid'.-nf. in conn jetton with his sudden
demiso was tho fact that only Thursday
niht a campaign which had high aims
In store for Lawler was oticncil by his
friends in the Hhaie of n public reception
and tho formation of a Lawler organiza
tion in tho Fourth congressional district.
Lawler was n self-made man. At tho nge
of 13 his father was accidentally killed,
nnd ho was compelled to fall back on his
own resources. First he went to work in
a brick yard, and afterward was a newboy
Then ho worked as a brukeman. Later
ho served aa apprenticeship t3 a ship car
penter and culkur. .When out of his ap
prenticeship ho wn "elected pnAVlent'of
the Ship Carpenters nnd Calken' union.
Ho was one of the founders of the first
trades assembly, and thirty years ago was
one of the first to advocate tho shortening
of the hours of labor to eight hours a day.
On I he recommendation of many or tho
trades unions ho wns appointed by Gen
eral John .McArthur, then postmaster, to
tho position of letter carrier, and after
serving in tue postolllco for twelve years

WAsnrSGTOX, Jan. IS. Tho resolution
drawn by Senator Davis and adopted by
the senate committee on foreign relations
will prove to bo a clear and strong cnun
ciatijn of the Monroe doctrine when its
text is made, public. It is a mora forceful
declaration than any that has been intro
duced In congress on this subject, and its
terms ure so explicit that they cr.nnot be
misunderstood. Tho maintenance of the
Monroe doctrine ns set forth in the resolu
tion is held to be vital to the welfare of
this country nnd the countries of the
American continent. The doctrine, it is
asserted, is now in force and has been in
lorco ever since It was established by
resident Monroe. The resolution ile-
lares it to mean that the acquisition by
purchase, aggression or otherwise of any
territory on tho American continent by a
foreign power is an unfriendly act and
luch acquisition will nut bo permitted by
ic United States.
$outh American Kepnblics Not Sovereign.
Tho most important feature is thut
hic'u touches upon a new phase of tho
eneztielan question tho report that
England and Venezuela may reach an
agreement, nnd that English money will
ttlo tho boundary dispute. The reso-
titlon declares that In caso boundary
disputes oa tho American continent be
tween foreign governments and American
governments nre deckled by arbitration.
grecincnt, purchase, or in nny manner
hatever, tho United States shall bo tho
ilc judge as to whether the Monroe doc-
rino lias Ik-iu violated in sucn arbitra
tion or agreement. In fact it means that
arbitration or agreement between foreign
governments nnd governments on tho
American continent -a to boundary dis
putes cannot becomo binding or ettoctiva
unless sanctioned by the L nited States
and that tiiis government is satisfied that
no part of tho American continent litis
lieen eedud to a foreign power by such
arbitration or agreement.
Makes Our Flat the I-aw.
This practically makes the i'nited States
tho arUUrator betwticn lorcign yvru-
menfs fiiiil "these of tho American conti
nent in nil boundary disputes. This p,r
Ion of the resolut ion is considered most
mportant and far-reaching In its cuYcts.
It can Mil much apprehension among some
menilK-rs of the comiiiitUT, ns it is claimed
hat it may lead to manv entanglements.
On the other hand the supporters of tho
solution say that it leaves everything in
the hands of the United States, where tho
linal decision should bo, and that the
"nited States will interfere only when the
Monroe doctrine has been violated. Tho
resolution is drawn with n view of cover
ing every possible contingency that may
arise in boundary disputes, or the acquisi.
tion, or the sale, of territory by one tor-
cign government to another on tho Amcr
lean continent, or islands that are oonsid-
erei a part of tho western hemisphere.
THAT 11KITINII FLYING SQUADRON
And the Itepnrt That It Has Sailed for the
Tho cable report from Portsmouth, Eng
land, that tho British Hying squadron's
destination may bo tho Bermudas can
not be confirmed in nny official quarter
here, nnd tho report is taken with con-
s'.ueralilo allowance. o Intorme.tton on
the subject has come to the deparl ments
or to tho British embassy. The British
squiidron tilreadv nt and alxiut the Ber
mudas consists of sixteen ships. Should
thj Portsmouth report prove true it would
mcrciiso this squadron to twenty-two
ships, or twenty-eight includinfr the six
torpedo catchers. It is doubtful that Great
Britain would send such a powerful fl.wt
into American waters at this tunc, una
Its presence would not lie regarded with
indifference by tho L nited States govern
ment, unless explained satisfactorily.
But what the olhciuls do not know
about it is perfectly well known to Repre
sentative Livingston, who says the squad
ron will next sail for Venezuela. Said
Livingston: "I knew it the other day
when I offered my resolution directing
the president to check tho British advance
and to compel them to withdraw their re
inforcements at their Venezuela outposts.
I tried sj to inform the liou.se, but Bou
