THE VENEZUELAN QUESTION.
The war being made by Germany,
England, Spain and Italy upon Vene
zuela is causing some uneasiness among
government officials and others in this
country. Some are apprehensive that
the allied powers cherish ulterior de
signs against the Monroe Doctrine. A
few like Henry Watterson hysterically
declare that the time has come for
abandonment or modification of that
doctrine. Some, as Judge Richard. Al
vey, of the Court of Appeals of the
District of Columbia, express the opin
ion that Secretary of State Hay, in ac
quiescing in the employ of force by En
gland and Germany to compel the Vene
zuelan government to make good the
claims of their citizens against that
country, has already to a considerable
degree surrendered the principle of the
doctrine Feferred to.
Judge Alvey is one of the most able
jurists in the United States and his
opinls are-entitled to respect, but in
this case we think that he is in error.
It is not so very long since Americans
weeboasting of the right of this gov
ernment to use force to compel the Sul
tan of Turkey to liquidate claims of
American cidzens against that country.
It would seem to be a reasonable prop
osition that when one country refuses to
comply With its obligations to another,
force may properly be used to compel
such compliance. The gist of the Mon
roe Doctrine is that the United States
will; not permit any European power to
acquire more territory than it now pos
sesaes on the Western Hemisphere. If
England or Germany, or either of them
should attempt to appropriate any por
tion of the Venezuelan territory, how
ever small, that would be a violation of
the Munroe Doctrine and this country
would be bound to interfere to prevent
it and thus the United States would be
forced into war.
But there is no danger of war and no
reason for the abandonment of the
Mozme Doctrine.. The existence of the
MogaegDoetie is the guarantee
ag i war. The: European powers
kndrT that the people of the United
S is, wlthout regard to party lines
or political faith have only
one k this question, and will
stand'by the Monroe Doctrine at all
hazards, for the preservation of the
workl's peace. No European nation
except Germany has any need of ae
quirig new territory. England has
her problems in SouthAfrica and a great
territory for the overflow of her''popu
lation in her Indian possessions. If
Germany persists .inher dogin-the
manger policy with retrence to the
proposed arbitratiop, it' would be - a
very easy thing for-th United States
to guarantee t4laiRof England, thus
eliminating tI$St eduntry from the
qn- .n -leaving Germiany to at
tempt the~ -.overthrow of the Mon
rpe Doctrieif she can. It isto bere
membered in this connection that there
are such nations as Russia and France,
that .Giaymust. take into considera
tion. is. and France always has
been of the United States.
Their toward Germany is well

Arm Cut Off.
George Kinard, a negro working in
the seed room at the Oil Mill, met with
a serious accident Saturday evening, as
a result of which his arm is cut off
above the elbow. He was attempting
to put a belt on a running pulley when
in some way his hand slipped and was
caught in the shafting, and torn off
completely. Kinard walked from the
seed room into the offlee to notify those
in the office of the accident, and
upon his return his hand was still
revolving on the shafting. It was
necessary in order to save the arm
that it be amputated above the elbow,
and this was done by Drs. Gilder and
Mr. Editor: I am not in the habit of
correcting every little thing that goes
wrong, but Iwant to say to my dear
old friend Sigma that the sentence
which appeared in my letter of last
Tuesday, "If something don't soon turn
up we are going to tell on an old hum
bug," was intended for a separate
paragraph. But it gos. +hrown in with
the little paragraph, which was all in
good humor, in reference to Sigma.
We hope this explanation is satisfac
tory to Sigma, and that we may soon
be able to tell in full the story about
which we have been joking him.
