It la Adopted by the Manila Foreign Ha
1st Inna Committee an tha Stand of tba
United Htat.ee — Acquisition of
Amarloan Territory by au
Altaa Power Will Not
He Permitted.
Wahiiinoton, .Ian. 20.—The resolu
tion drawn bv Senator Davln and
adopted by the Senate committee on
foreign relations yesterday, will prove |
to be a clear and strong enunciation
of the Monroe doctrine when its text !
is made public. It is a more forcible i
declaration than any that has been in
troduecd in Congress on this subject,
and Its terms are so explicit that they
cannot be misunderstood.
The maintenance of the Monroe
doctrine itM set forth in the resolution,
is held to he vital to the welfure of
this country and the countries of the
American continent. The doctrine, it. |
is asserted, Is now in force, and has
been in force ever since It was es
tablished by President. Monroe. The
resolution declares it to mean the
acquisition, by purcliuse. aggression
or otherwise, of any territory on the
American continent, by a foreign
power is an unfriendly act, and such
acquisition will not be permitted by
the United States
The most important feature is that
which touches upon a new phase of
the Venezuela question—the report
that England and Venezuela mav
reach an agreement and that English
money will settle 'lie boundary dis
pute. The resolution declares that
when boundary disputes on the Amer
ican continent between foreign gov
ernments and American governments
are decided by arbitwition, agreement,
purchase, or in any manner whatever,
tlie United States shall be the sole
judge as to whether the Monroe doc
trine has been violated in such arbitra
tion, or agreement. In fact, it means
tiiat arbitration or agreement between
foreign governments and governments
of tlie American continent as to bound
ary disputes cannot become binding or
effective unless sanctioned by the
United States, and this government is
satisfied that no part of the American
continent has been ceded to a foreign
power by such arbitration or agree
ment. This practically makes the
United States the arbitrator between
foreign governments and tlio.se of the
American continent in all boundary
This portion of the resolution is con
sidered most important and far-reach
ing in its effects. It caused misap
prehension among some uietptiers of
the committee, as it is claimed tiiat it
may lead to manv entanglements. On
the other hand, tlie supporters of the
resolution say it leaves everything in
the hands of the United States, where
the final decision should be. and that
the United States will interfere only
when the Monroe doctrine has been

of covering every possible contingency

In Command —A Cruel Man
Madrid, Jan. 20.—The cabinet has
decided to appoint Oeneral t’olavija
to replace Martinex Campos who Is
111, as captain general of the Spunish
forces in Cuba and governor general
of the island.
When the Spanish government wus
organizing its forces to oppose the Cu
ban Insurrection last, year, Oeneral
Polavija was slated by public rumor
for the position of cuptaln general of
the Npanlah forces In Cuba to succeed
Oeneral ('alien. It being doubtful at
that time whether Campos would be
willing to undertake the task. Hut
hia success as a pacificator in the
former insurrection led to the selec
tion of Campos, and a reliance upon
the more conciliatory policy which he
avowed it wan iiis Intention to pursue
toward the Cubans, witli the hope of
winning them to peace,
Oeneral Poluvija, according to all
reports, is a very different character.
He Is commander of the Spanish Sixth
army corps, and has not been without
experience in Cubs, where his name
seems to be hated and feared by the
insurgents, llu was on the island as
a subordinate to Martinez Campos at
the time of the Virginia affair. ■ u
ban patriots tell iruyiy stories of his
inhuman methods during the lust Cu
ban rising. One of these stories is to
the effect that he once sant a company
of soldiers to escort some Cuban
firisoners from the interior to
all. On the way uli the prisoners
were shot, it is said, by order of
Polavija. It has been claimed by the
Cubans, when previous rumors of Pol
avi ja's appoint merit to succeed Campo<
have been circulated, that Ills appoint
ment would drive inuny residents of
the island into the insurgent ranks
who had hitherto refrained from join
mg, owing to the confidence that Cam
pos would adhere strictly to all th
rules of warfare in his operation
against the insurgents.

It Gets llie National Democratic ('olivet
tlon After a Hard tight
Washington, .tan, is,—The Demc
cratic national convention will b
held at the city of Chicago on July i
That was the decision reached by tic
national Democratic committee afte
an interesting, and at times exciting
session, which continued until 1
o'clock last night.
The main interest, of course, cen
tered in the choice of the conventioi
city. For this honor there were fou
applicants. Chicago, St. Louis, Cincin
nati ami New York. Thirty minute
was allowed each city in which to pr«
sent its claims. The speeches, mail
bv distinguished citizens in each in
stance, were of high order of excel
lcnce, and, at times, aroused th
greatest enthusiasm. The bailotini
began about 0 o'clock ami, from tb
first, a long and bitter atruggle wa
Kx-Hovernor Francis, lloverno
Stone, Mayor Walbridge and Senato
Vest spoke for St. Louis.
The first ballot resulted: Chicago
6; Cincinnati, it; St. Louis, 19: Nev
York. H. There was practically n<
change, except a light fluctuation of i
vole or two, until the tenth ballot
when Chicago began gradually to in
crease her vote at the expense of Nev
York At the twentieth ballot Nev
York’s strength was rapidly diainte
grating, her vote going almost bodil;
to Chicago. Hut St. Louis, wiiich hai
tenaciously clung to her nineteei
votes, also captured several of Cincin
nati's votes, and on the ballot befor
the last led Chicago by one vote. Oi
the last ballot, the twenty-ninth
which was taken shortly before 1
o’clock, the four remaining votes o
New York were thrown to Chicago
and she obtained liie necessary plural
ity. Senator Hrice voted for Cincin
nati to the last.
t An examination of the vote bi
States shows that St. Louis had prac
i tlcally ilie solid support of the frei
silver votes in the committee.
