'' SUMMARY OF SECRETARY OLNEY'S MASTERLY NOTE TO THE MARQUIS OF SALISBURY. Essence of British Premier's Tart Reply Declining1 to Recognize the Monroe Doctrine and Refusing to Arbitrate Venezuela Boundary Dispute. Washington, Dee. 18. The house has passed unanimously a bill authorizing the president to appoint a Venezuelan commission and appropriating $100,000 for the expenses thereof. The senate did not take op the Vene zuelan dispute directly. Senator Hill offered a resolution to re peal the disabilities on confederate sol diers and Senator Chandler and other senators offered resolutions to provide fnr the national defense. No action was taken on these resolutions. Senator Chandler, Republican, of New Hampshire, to-dey introduced a bill "to strengthen the military armament." It directs the president to strengthen the militia force by adding 1,000,000 infantry rifles, 1,000 guns for field artillery, and not exceeding 5,000 heavy guns for fortifi cation. The sum of $1,000,000 is made immediately available for the pnrpose in dicated. - Venezuela Incident in the House. Washington. Mr. Hitt, Republican, of Illinois, reported in the house this morn ing, and called for unanimous consent for its consideration, a bill to empower the president to appoint a commission to consider the Venezuelan boundary question and the appropriation of $100, 009 for the expenses thereof. The bill was loudly applauded when read. Mr. Boutelle, Republican, of Maine, said that he disliked to object to the con sideration of such a bill, "but," said he, "It seems that this su.bjeot is one of such serious importance that the house of rep resentatives should prooeed in a decorous manner to consider it." Cries of "ready, ready," from the Re publican side, intern pted Mr. Boutelle. But he proceeded; "I have been ac cused of being a jingo, whatever that may mean. I hope no one in that part of the country where I am known would be lieve that I would hesitate, if the honor and dignity or safety of the country re quired it to take up arms against any or all the nations of the world. But the press shows that the country is in a feverish state of excitement. It seems we ought to give this matter as much consideration as we would give to the appropriation of a few thousand dollars." BOFCD BILL WOULD QO TO COMMITTEE. The speaker: "Does the gentleman objeetf" Mr. Boutelle said that he merely sug gested the hope that the bill would go to the committee. Mr. Hitt announced that he only de sired to say a word concerning the bill and its purpose. He hoped there would be no two sides when it came to a ques tion like this. The request was made by the president for help from the house to enable him to exeroise his exeoutive functions. "The first thing for us to remember as patriots," said Mr. Hitt, "iB that the suc cess of our country depends upon our maintaining a united front our govern meut should speak for all the people of the United States."' Mr. Hitt moved the previous question, but Mr. CriBp asked permission to say a word. He began: CBISP COMES NOBLY TO THE FBONT. ' "I speak for all this side of the house, where there is no division as to the pro priety of passing the bill. This house re speotfully invited the government of Great Britain to arbitrate the boundary question between Venezuela and British Guiana. Great Britain has declined. Now what are we to dot If the Amerioan peo ple have a fixed opinion on any question, they have a decisive opinion that no Eu ropean oountry oan aoquire territory on the Amerioan oontinent by force." Mr. Crisp said that a Repubhoan had introduced a bill which he attempted to bring in himself yesterday, and con tinued, "If the boundary could not be as certained, by arbitration with the parti cipation of Great Britain, the' United States should ascertained where it is." He oonoluded: "We should have the courage and manhood to maintain it." Mr. MoOreary,Demoorat,Kentuoky,and Mr. Boutelle were shouting for recogni tion, but Mr. Hitt refused to yield the floor and the previeus question was oarried with a shout of "ayes," and no opposition Toioe. A resolution was ad oped that the holiday adjournment should be from Fri day, Deoember 20, till Friday January 8. Then the house at 12:10 adjourned until Friday. ' ; ;- - . The Vaaeaaelan Messsft la England. London. In spite of the prominence all the newspapers give to President Cleve land's message on the Veneiuelan boun dary question, the general pnblio here refuses to get exoited or even interest ed. Those who have read the correspond ence resent President Cleveland's attitude; but almost invariably the answer re ceived to inquiries for an opinion is: "What is it all about, anyway f" The messags, however, is being wed on the stock exobange to hammer Amerioan securities. 'One newspaper remarked: "The Yankee Jobbers are the only persons injured by the message and they have just ground for oomplaint.". : " ; URAKiaiOlK MWSPAFIIS. The editorial eommetits of the New York World and the New York Evening Post, deolarlng the message a blunder, are reprinted here with approval, as indicat ing Amerioan opinion. THE PRESIDENT. The radical evening newspapers take the most serious view. Editorially the Star remarks: "It is difficult to exaggerate the gravity of the situation. The United States may be as sured that Englishmen, regardless of party, will abide firmly by Lord Salis bury's claims and not submit to the bounce." "Pnblio opinion," says the Westminster Oazette, "will unanimously support Lord Salisbury, but it is a pity he en larged the dispute and attacked the Mon roe doctrine." A Statesmanlike Message. Denver. The Colorado daily press gen erally commends the president's message. The Times says: "President Cleveland's message to con gress upon the Venezuela dispute is more patriotic and squarely American than any of his previous publio utterances. He takes a calm, broad and statesmanlike view of the whole dispute, and treats the British eide of the question with Justice, and without the slightest sycophanoy. "Such a dignified and independent no tion on the part of President Cleveland will be a surprise to his enemies, and a source of peculiar gratification to his friends. "The message will undoubtedly be sanctioned by oocgress, and it will then go to the British people as a statement of the attitude of the United States upon the Monroe doctrine. The life or death of that dootrine is pretty sure to be the final result of this dispute over the bouudaries of Venezuela. "It now looks as though Lord Salis bury was more anxions to kill the Mon roe dootrine than to gain his point in Venezuela. "It will probably require a fight to set tle this matter if Lord Salisbury insists upon breaking up the union between the republics of South America and the Unit ed States." 'I lie Correspondence. Washington. In his now celebrated note to Salisbury Seoretary Olney shows that the British claims, since the Sohom berg line was run, have moved the front ier of British Guiana "farther and farther to the westward of the line proposed by Lord Aberdeen in 1811." The seoretary then summarizes the situation at the beginning of this year to be as follows: 1. The title to territory of indefinite and confessedly very large extent is in dispute between Great Britain and Vene zuela. 2. The disparity of strength of the par ties is such that Venezuela can hope to establish her claim only through peaoeful methods. 8. The controversy has existed for half a century, despite Venezuela's efforts to establish a boundary. 1. Venezuela has for a quarter of a century striven for arbitration. INADMISSIBLE TEEMS. 5. Great Britain has continuously re fused except upon the renunciation in her favor of a large part of Venezuela's claims. 6. The United States has made it dear to Great Britain and the world by fre quent interposition of . good offices that the controversy is one in which its honor and its interests are involved, and the oontinnanoe of whioh it can not regard with indifference. The status of the case, the secre tary says, compels those charged with the interests of the United States to deoide to what extent, if any anr, the United States may and should intervene in a controversy between aud primarily concerning only Great Britain and Venezuela, and to deoide how far it is bound to see that the integrity of Vene zuela territory is not impaired by the pretentions of its powerful antagonist. Are any suoh right aqd duty devolved upon the United State's! If not, the United States has already done all, if not more than all, that a pure ly sentimental interest in the affairs of the - two countries justifies, and to push its interposition further would be unbe coming and undignified and might well subject it to the charge of impertinent intermeddling with affairs with whioh it has no rightful eonoern. ioioi i nhoissabt. ; V On the other band, if any snob right and duty exist, their due exeroise and dis charge will not permit of any action that shall not be effioient, and that, if the power of the United States is inadequate, shall not result in the accomplishment of the end in view. The question thus pre' sented as a matter of principle, and re gard being baa to the settled national policy, does not seem diffloultof solution. Yet, the momentous 'praotioal conse quences dependent upon its determina tion require that It should be esrefully considered and that the grounds of the eonolusion arrived at should be fully and frankly stated. ' . THl QUESTION OF IIOHT. The seoretary lays it down as oanon of international law that a nation may justly interpose in a controversy between other nations whenever "what la dona or proposed by any of the parties primarily eoneerned is a serious aod direot menace to its own Integrity, tranquility or wel fare." The propriety of the role, when ap plied in good faith, will not be questioned in any quarter, though he eays it has been given wide scope and too often made a cloak for soemes of wanton spoliation and aggrandizement. This leads him up to an elaborate review of the Monroe dootrine, and Secretary Olney, stating that the proposition that America is in no part open to coloniza- tion has very long been conceded, says that our present ooncern is with the other practical application of the Monroe dootrine, viz: That Amerioan non-intervention in Europe, neoessarily implied European non-intervention in Amerioan affairs, the disregard of which, by any European power, is to be deemed an act of unfriendliness toward the United States. TBI DOOTBINE DEFINED. On this point the secretary says: "The precise scope and limitations of this rule can not be too clearly apprenenaea. it does not establish any general protect' orate by the United States over other American states. It does not relieve any state from its obligations, as fixed by in ternational law, nor prevent any Euro pean power, directly interested, from en forcing suoh obligations, or from lumct- ing merited punishment for the bresoh of them. It does not contemplate any interference in the internal affairs of any American state, or in the relations be tween it and other Amerioan states. It does not justify any attempt on our part to change the established form of gov ernment of any Amerioan state, or to prevent the people of any suoh state from altering that form according to their own will and pleasure. "The rule in question has but a single object. It is that no European power, or combination of European powers, shall foroibly deprive an Amerioan state of the right and power of self-government, and of shaping for itself its own politioal fortunes and doctrines." Salisbury's Reply. Washington. Lord Salisbury answers Secretary Olney in two notes, both of date July 26. The first is devoted entirely to a reply to that portion of the note relating to the Monroe doctrine, whioh he eays has never before been made the subject of a written communication by the United States to another government, although it has largely influenced American foreign rela tions. " Lord Salisbury says that this dootrine has undergone a "notable development" since its enunoiation by President Mon roe, whioh had originally reoeived the en tire sympathy of the English government. But the dangers apprehended by Presi dent Monroe, Lord Salisbury says, have no relation to the conditions of the pres ent day, when there is no danger of a holy alliance, or of attempts at European col onization of America. Great Britain is imposing no "system" upon Venezuela, nor concerning herself witn Venezuelan political institutions. MOT APPLICABLE. The dispute over a boundary has noth- iDe to do with any of the questions dealt with by Monroe. The latter did not olaim for the United States the novel preroga tive of settling a frontier difference of this kind, nor did he seek to establish a protectorate oer Mexico, or the Central Amerioan states. So if the United States will not control theoonduot of these communities, it can not undertake to pro tect them from the consequences attach ing to their misoondnct. Arbitration is not free from defects and trie oiaim oi a third nation to impose it on two inter ested nations can not be reasonably jus tified and has no foundation in the law of nations. THE MONBOE DOOTBINE DECLINED. Lord Salisbury expressly deolines to be understood as accepting the Monroe doo trine. International law being founded on the general oonsent of nations, no statesman and no nation, however power ful, can inject a novel, principle not ac ceptable to any other government, and Seoretary Olney's prinoiple, that "Amer ican questions are for American decision" funsustained by Monroe), oan not be sus tained by international law. The United States nan not affirm that its interests are concerned iu Amerioan states because they are Amerioan, no more than if they were Japan or Utuua. Monroe's lan guage was never admitted to be interna tional law, and tne danger ot suon aamis sion is shown by the "strange" develop ment whioh the dootrine has received at Secretary Olney's hand. STBAININO TBI DOOTBINE. A fair inference from Mr. Olney's argu ments, Lord Salisbury says, is that the union between Great Britain atd her ooloniesin America leinexpedient and un natural, something denied by Monroe and emphatically denied by her majesty's government and the Amerioan people subject to the crown. Concurring in Monroe s .view mat a disturbance of territorial distribution in the Western hemisphere would be inex pedient, it does nor admit this to be in ternational law, and oan not acoopt the dootrine that the United States is en titled to demand arbitration of territorial disputes between South Amerioan states. In conclusion liora aaiisourv says mat he hopes that the difficulty, made more difficult by Venezuela's inconsiderate ac tion in breaking diplomatic relations, will be adjusted by a reasonable arrange ment at an early date. Lord Salisbury's second note, dated also July 26, deals entirely with the boun dary dispute on its merits, beginning with the statement that Great Britain does not recognize that any other oonntry has a material Interest'' in the controversy, yet makes the statement in this fashion beoause, owing to tne rupture oi Diplo matic relations, it is not otherwise pos sible to oommonioate it to the Venezuelan government. Lord Salisbury asserts that Seoretary Uiney, aoting ou an ex parte presentation . of the oase by Venezuela, has fallen into much misapprehension. He enters into an elaboratemetory oi tne British elaim, founded on the Dntoh oes- sien, tells how the Bohomberg line was run, of many concessions ottered oy Great Britain to Venezuela to reaoh an arrangement, aud suggests that the Ve neiuelan insistence upon the arbitration of the whole territory would be paral leled by a refusal of Great Britain to ar bitrate the Alaskan boundary Hue, unless half of Alaska were thrown into arbitra tion.

Another Bond Issue Arranged, New York, Deo. 18. The World says The withdrawal Monday of $3,150,000 in gold for shipment abroad leaves the treasury reserve $72,801,766. President Cleveland, seeing that a bond issue must come, has been in personal consultation with members, of the syndi cate whioh advised and managed the last issue. Details of tbtf plan for the issue have been partially agreed npou and it is understood the president will order the issue as soon as the reserve strikes the $60,000,000 mark. The issue will be at least $50,000,000 and possibly. $100,000, 000. It iB the general feeling that Monday ehipment will be the last for bouib time, but it is thought the president's mark of $60,000,000 will be reached in the first fortnight of the new year.

Interesting now, beoause of Germany's prohibition of the importation of Amerioan cattle, is the report just issued by the agricultural department on the corn disease of cattle and the investigation of a disease ap parently identical with the rabies. The investigation shows conclusively that it is not lung disease, not communioatable and not even of a baoterial nature. This effectively refutes the assertions which have in recent years been made to oast much discredit npon American cattle, it being olaimed among other things that the disease is ideniicoUwith the broncho pneumonia found in oattle after ocean transit.
