THE PEESIDENT CALLED A
Prcsidont Cleveland's message
on tho Vonozuelan question leaves
no room for criticism. It is one
of tho strongest stato papers cvor
sont to an American Congress by
a Prcsidont of tho United States.
It is an oxhibition of American
backbono which ovory loyal Amer
ican will applaud, and tho President
may bo assured that tho
Amorican pcoplo will approvo
most heartily tho stand ho has
taken. Ho can dopond on them to
follow him to tho fighting point,
and then through the fight and on
to victory on this important issue.
In vain has this Government
sought to scouro tho consent of
Great Biitain to submit to arbitration
her pretensions in Venezuela.
Tho Venezuelan government has
complained to tiio United States
that Great Britain seeks, by forco
to chango tho boundary lino between
Venczuola and British Guiana,
and thereby scizo a largo portion
of her toiritory, and extend
tho British system of Government
over tho inhabitants thereof,
consent. To tho demand of
our Government that tho question
bo submitted to arbitration, Lord
Salisbury, tho British Primo
sends back not only a flat refusal,
but denios our light to
the Monroo doctrino on this
continent. In fact, tho reply
claims tho right for tho British
Government to soizo territory in
Ameiita wherever and whenever
sho has tho inclination and the
power to do so, and declares thero
is no principlo of international law
which restrains her in the present
instanco, or that can check her in
any futuro aggressions.
Tho Monroo doctrino, based upon
tho law of self picservation,
which is distinctly an element in
international law, is scouted by
Gicat Britain as a moro local idea.
Tho President moots this opposi
tion with a firmness and dignity
which will bo snpportod by men of
all parties. Ho declares to Con-
gioss that "nothing remains but to
accept the situation, to iccognizo
its plain requirements and deal
with it accordingly."
Ho asks Congress to empower
tho Executive to appoint a commission
to investigate and
tho Venezuela-British Guiana
boundary. A bill was immediately
proparcd and passed both houses
giving him this power.
Great Britain has always been in
tho habit of bulldozing weaker
powers and soizing torritory whenever
sho had an opportunity, and
sho has alwaj's boen so successful
that sho seems to havo got it into
her head that on account of K
Great Jliitoirand tho United
CTEifea States that sho could do as
sho pleased on this hemibphoroand
that Undo Samuel would not kick,
but sho has found that Picsidcnt
Cleveland had tho nerve to call a
halt, and sho will also find that
our chief magistrato will take no
backward stops as regards truo
Amoricanism and its assertion. No
forcible encroachment on republican
soil on this continent will bo
tolerated! If Great Britain really
believes tho territory in disputo
belongs to hor sho cannot, in honor,
refuso to submit tho issue to
Only two leading Amorican
journals aio opposing tho President's
position on the Venezuelan
question, ono is tho Now York
World and tho other is tho New
York Evening Post. Tho Los
Angoles Times has this to say of
"Under its present management
tho Now York World has always
boon intensely un-American. As a
matter of course tho World supports
tho British side of tho Venezuelan
question instead of the American
side. Can tho leopard chango its
spots or tho Ethiop his skin? Not
in ton thousand years!"
"Of course tho Mugwump Evening
Post of New York is "agin"
tho Monroo Doctrino and tho President's
reassortion of it. Tho Evening
Post may suroly bo countod
upon to oppose anything that
savors of American patriotism."

"In my own country I havo witnessed
tho insatiable growth of
