XICAN: VOL.32. SANTA-FE, N. M.. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19 1895 NO. 254 ME THE VENEZUELA INCIDENT House Bill Appropriating 8100,000 - for Expenses of Boundary Commis sion Beaches Senate. SENATE CONSERVATIVE, BDI OUTSPOKEN Monroe Doctrine Must Be Maintained Scales Falling from John Bull's ' Eyes 'Recognizes that Amer icans Are in Earnest. Washington, Deo. 19. When the senate met at noon the clerk of the house an nounced the passage by the house of the bill appropriation $100,000 for the ex penses of a commission to investigate the boundary between British Guiana and Venezuela, which was recommended by ' the president. ,..-..--. The vice president immediately laid it before the senate. : ' Senator 8herman moved its referenoe to the committee on foreign relations, but in the absenoe of Senator Morgan, chairman ot the foreign relations com mittee, Senator Cookrell requested that Senator Sherman withdraw his motion until the arrival of the senator from Ala bama. This was done. When Senator Morgan arrived, a few minutes later, the honse Venezuelan bill waB laid before the senate again. - Senator Morgan moved to refer it to the committee on foreign relations and was supported by Senator Sherman. Both senators made speeohes support ing the president, bat protesting against haste. PLAIN TALK IH THE SENATE. Senator Bhertnau expressed the belief that there would be no war and that the matter would be adjusted peaceably. Senator Lodge, Repnblioan, of Massa chusetts, said that he was not in haste, but he thought the time for the commit tee to report should be limited, and gave notice of an amendment providing that the commission report by April 1. Be did not think that the Monroe doctrine could be upheld as a proposition of in ternational law, but he believed it should be supported as we supported the declar ation of independence, beoause it was our tlootrine. TBK TALL SYCAMOBB SPEAKS. Senator Voorhees took ground in favor of immediate action. Great Britain took five months to say that she would not ar bitrate. He thought we shonld not make any further delay, but should appoint a commission to see what belonged to Great Britain and give her that and no more. He did not believe there was any danger of war, but thought the dignity of the United States demanded that we should ant without further delay. Senator Allen, Populist, of Nebraska, objeoted to a second reading of the bill, which would oarry it over until to-morrow. In a short speeoh be said that be did not expect there would be any war. He thought that the amendment pro posed by Senator Lodge meant that there would- be more of a political war than anything else. Senator Hawley, Republican, of Con necticut, said it was not so much a case of war as of information. No one knew what the faots were. Great Britain her self does not know. He wanted the bill referred because it was the dignified and proper way. Amendments could then be considered. BEMATOB TELLEB HEARD VBOH. Senator Teller said that congress should support the president. He never ex pected to see a president who would not uphold the Monroe dootrine. As Ameri can dootrine it was not international law, but faots were what were now wanted to learn if the dootrine fitted the present case. Senator Teller held that there was no haste in the matter. The boundary question was one of long standing and Great Brit ain was taking no extraordinary steps in regard to it. He did not care then if the committee took a month to consider the bill. No impression of the solidarity of the United States would be given to the world by unduly hurrying. He was not in favor of war. A war between the Unit ed States and Great Britain would be the greatest struggle sinoe the days of Alex ander, and any one familiar with the con ditions to-day must know it would be a universal war. In his judgment there would be no war over so trivial a ques tion. SENATOB MOBOAH WANTED BILL" BBIEBBBD. At the conclusion of Senator Teller's speeoh Senator Morgan said he would , like to have the bill referred to the foreign relations committee, but unless objection to its second reading was with drawn it would have to remain on the table until to-morrow. ,' Senator Allen's objection was not with drawn and so the bill, goes over till to morrow. Senator Morgan said that there was a resolution relating to this general sub ject before the committee of foreign re lations and he intended to oall a meeting of the committee to-morrow to consider, not only this bill, but also the resolution. As the matter stands no action oan be taken on the bill until to-morrow. MealS) Vailing from John Bull's Eyes London. -In commenting to-day on the Tenesuelan question, the newspapers gen erally agree that the situation is more serious than they thought yesterday. In the publio mind also there is a gen eral feeling of disappointment at the ac tion of congress in supporting President Cleveland. :: The stook exchange here and exchange throughout the country continue under the influence. 1 At the same time there is no excitement. - .

This is our un alterable position, be the eonssqusneee what they may. We will never submit to sueh unparalleled dictation." . - rBEHOEf PBBSS SUPPOBTS BBOLAMD. Paris. All the newspapere, whioh com ment to-day upon President Cleveland's message and the subsequent action of the United -,' States congress, support the stand taken by Great Britain and pro tect that Monroeism is not and can not be principle of international law. The Beiekle says: "Applying the doe trine raises an interesting question, not : only for Great Britain, but for the other European powers, whioh ought to unite in the oommon defense." President of Veuecnela Pleased. New York. A dispatch to the Herald from Caraoas, Venezuela, says: fa an in terview on President Cleveland's mes sage, transmitted to the Dotted States congress, President Crespo said that he was preparing a personal letter of thanks to President Cleveland. He added: "The attitude of Venezuela and her executive head npon the boun dary question of Gniana will always be one of self-proieotion. The republio will uphold tbe rights that properly may be' long to her at all hazards. President Cleveland and I were both as one in los ing and in regaining power, and certainly It seems as it we were one In destiny and action," - . PRESIDENT DIAZ DECLINES TO TALK. Mexico City. President Diaz, in an interview on President Cleveland's mes sage. said: "While l am, of coarse, a partisan of the Monroe dootrine, properly understood, 1 do not think 1 shonld give the press an opinion on its application to the question pending between Great Britain and Venezuela." Expressions of Opinion. Washington. Senator Davis, Repub lican, member of the committee on for eign relations, said: "I think the president has risen to an opportunity, such as has not been pre sented to any president in many years. In language of great dignity, power and aoouraoy, he has stated the Monroe doo trine as understood by the American peo ple for seventy years." Senator Teller, Republican: "The concluding words have tbe American ring." Senator Gorman, Democrat: "It is a warlike dooument and a very vigorous statement. Of oourse much depends upon what the commission, which we are to send to Venezuela, shall report." Denver. Tbe Republican editorially commends the president for upholding tbe Monroe doctrine, bnt eavs the plan is not feasible. It wants to know how a commission euuld enter disputed terri tory to make an investigation, and if it be the dnty of the United States to whip one or both parties into compliance if the decision of the commission was re jected. London. All the morning dailies yes terday devoted much editorial space to Cleveland's message. All take the posi tion that the American demand is absurd, and that Et-gland shonld fight rather than recede from her position. THK HABKRTi. New York, Dec. -19.'

GREAT PLACER PROPOSITION Manager Nettieton, of the Santa Fe Placer Company, a Visitor in the City. MILLIONS IN GALISTEO PLACER FIELDS Headquarters of Company at Cerrillos Preparing to Patent Claims Plans of Company Satisfac tory Tests. Mr. F. E. Nettieton, general manager of the Santa Fe Plaoer Mining company, with headquarters at Los Cerrillos and an office in Kansas CJty, arrived in Kanta Fe yesterday morning from the east. His business here was to arrange with Surveyor General Essley for the ' survey of the plaoer grounds of his company on the Galisteo river with a view of patenting the twenty claims looated and being worked by hiirr and his associates. He left for Cerrillos last night and will be gin surveying in a few days. About 600 acres are included in the twenty olaims. SIDING W1LI, BB PUT IN. Besides starting work on the surveys, Mr. Nettieton will meet Supt. Hurley and nn engineer of the A., T. & S. F. railroad, at Cerrillos to-morrow for the purpose of laying out a side-track to the placer fields. This is needed at an early date in order ' that the machinery may be quickly and cheaply transferred to the ground. Mr. Nettieton says that the investiga tion and tests he has made during the past year prove beyond doubt that the greatest gold placer proposition in the world is presented on the Galisteo at the ontlet of the gnlohes and arroyos leading down from the gold-ribbed Ortiz mountains. TESTS SO FAB MADE. The tests so far made show that the sand and gravel on the claims looated run from $1.19 to $6.12, or a general average of $4.09W per cubic yard in gold, and these results have been obtained from sutface rather than bed-rock work ings. Mr. Nettieton is sanguine that the pock ets and crevices in the irregular sand stone bed-rock, which he describes as "gigantio riffles in a gigantio sluice," will prove very rich. THE OBOUNDS WILL PAY. But, even if the grounds do not yield more than $1 per cnbio yard, the propo sition will pay well, as the Nettieton plaoer mining machine will handle 1,000 cabio yards of the deposit every twenty four hours. Details regarding the plans of the company and the method of pro cedure adopted are given below: , APPLIANCES ADOPTED. The Santa Fe Placer Mining company, operating at Los Cerrillos, nnder the management of F. E. Nettieton, expects to begin the erection of its plant, which will cost about $12,500, in the early spring, or as soon as the weather will permit of economical work. The plan of operation is to raise the material fill ing tbe bed of the river by a steam bucket dredge of great capacity, and whioh will be capable of digging to a depth of forty feet below water-line. It is calculated that the depth of the deposit will average about thirty feet, with possibly depressions of greater depth, and the ladder of the dredge will be con structed to reach the bottom of any of these not exceeding forty feet in depth. As the material is penetrated by the sub-flow of water to bed-rook, the suotion pipe of a six-inch centrifugal pump will be extended down the dredge ladder to within twelve inches of the lowest point reached by the buckets. . The action of this pump will not only bring up the neoessary water for sluicing, but it will also, in a measure, bring up each ma terial as the buckets may have left on the bed-rock, and very likely will clean small pockets in the rook that the buckets are unable to reaoh. This idea of running the section pipe to that depth, and for this purpose, is believed to be new. TBS BLACK SAND WILL BE SAVED. For gleaning the gold the plant will be provided with sluice boxes, grizzly and soreens, burlap sluices, a magnet for ex tracting the black sand, and amalgam plates for catohing the flour gold. The material will have been screened to a one-sixteenth-inoh mesh before being pnt on the plates. All coarse tailings will be dropped by gravity behind the dredge, and fine tailings will be oonveyed a con siderable distance further aft by the use of an eighth-inoh centrifugal pnmp. When it is taken into consideration that the average assay of the material is over $4 per oubio yard, it is thought that by the use of the amalgamating devices, as outlined above, a large percentage of the assay value will be saved. It is also thought that by saving the black sand, or so-called magnetio iron, quite a profit will be derived from that source, ns it undoubtedly carries with it muoh gold. - The accepted theory has been that the gold is oarried by this blaok sand simply by abrasion. The manager has received information that by a new treatment this magnetic iron has given a result of $2,000 per ton, after all the free gold that could be discerned by magnifying glasses was removed, this sand oomicg from New Mexioo. Should this information bs ac curate it will upset the theories hereto fore held. Mr. Nettieton is investigating the matter and will have some of the black sand from the property treated by the new process. This black sand or magnetio iron is fonnd in great abundance on the prop erty of this company on the Rio Galisteo. If this sand should prove to be anything like as valuable as above stated, there oertainly are "millions" in this property by the saving of this gold-besring sand in addition to the free gold whioh the material contains in surprising quantity.
