At 11:50 this morning the foreign relations committee of the senate, which has nnder consider ation the Venezuela commission bill sug gested by the president, adjourned. A virtual agreement was reaohed as to what Bhould be done. ..: The bill with some amendments will pass to-day.

The Venezuelan bffyw amended-by I'.ie senate foreign relatione committee reads as follows: "That the sum of $100,000, or so much thereof as may be necessary, be, and same is, hereby appropriated for the expenses of a oommiSBion to consist of three members, to be appointed by the president, by and with the advice and consent of the senate, to investigate and report to him the facts in regard to the divisional line between the republic of Venezuela and British Guiana; provided, that seotion 2 of an act, approved J oly 81, 1894, making appropriation for the legislative and judicial expenses of the government, shall not apply to the com missioners appointed under this act." OALMNLY OONSIDEBED IN TBI SENATE. When the senate met Senator Morgan offered a substitute for the honse bill providing for the Venezuelan commis sion. After Senator Morgan had explained the amendments to the honse bill, Sena tor Piatt, of Connection said that any delay would be construed in England as hesitation on our part and it was not es sential to ohange the bill. Amendments would be construed as receding on the part of the senate and the senate should notify Great Britain that America was behind the president. BHEBUAN OBOES DELIBEBATION. Senator Sherman said that the presi dent had been approved unanimously by both houses of congress. England was not making any ..fresh aggressions and was now taking the matter seriously. He thought the dispute wonld be settled hon orably and that no Amerioan blood would be shed. "It seems to me,'' Senator Sherman said, "that all this is too hasty; that we are too eager; let us take our time to de ' liberate and not rush into the matter." HOUSE BILL UNANIMOUSLY PASSED. The senate laid the committee amend ments on the table and by a unanimous vote passed the house bill. Disturbed 8 took Markets. New York, Deo. 20. The first London cable reoeived ; here caused a deoided shook to the earliest callers at brokers' offices. The prioes for Americans were report ed at rather panicky figures, showing de clines of from 1 to 5 per cent.

As the effect of the publica tion here of cablegrams quoting the presidents of certain chambers of com merce in the United States as opposed to war with Great Britain over the Vene znela . boundary question, there was a slightly better feeling on the stock ex change to-day, but the markets were still unsettled. Americana continue very flat. BOTHSOHILBS WANTS VI AOE. Barou Bothsohilda, disooiiing the sit uation, said to a representative of the Assoeiated Press: "From a business point of view opinions can not differ. AU I want is peaoe."

Our Naval Strength. New York, Deo. 20. A local psper prints an interview from Washington with Charles H. "ramp, head of the ship building firm, on the subject of a possi ble war with Great Britain. Cramp does not think there will be an immediate order for new vessels, for he says those ordered now would hardly be available if needed soon, as it takes two years to build a battleship. He said: "The president's message is Just and strong as it represents our national strength on the sea. Without a single battleship it would be weak and beneath notiee, with one such vessel it would de mand some attention, and so on as the number inereases, until if baoked by twenty it would be unanswerable. Now what is the United States' strength as to battleships f There are available, , or will be in a few months, tour first class: The Indiana, Massachusetts, Iowa, and Oregon. Then there are the Texas and Maine, second olass; the Monterey, whioh has demonstrated her ability to go on sea cruises; the Miantonomah, smaller than the Monterey, and the Amphrite, of the monitor class. There is the Terror, Puritan and Monadnook. With this showing it will be seen what strength the president's message has." When asked how long it wonld take to transform four ooean greyhounds of the Amerioan line to war vessels, as stipulated in the mail contract, Cramp said they could be made ready in a couple of weeks, but he did not think they would be muoh use in a naval battle, but wo ma be of service as oommeroe destroyers.

The news of the slump in stook on both the New York and London exchanges and that gold withdrawals for export to-day would approximate $4,000,000 and pos sibly more created a sensation among treasury offioials. About noon Assistant Seoretary Curtis had a conversation with'New York parties over the long distance telephone and at its conclusion hurriedly left the depart ment for the White bouse, where the cabinet was in session. What measures, if any, will be taken at once by the government to allay the panioky situation is problematical, but there seems to be no reasonable doubt that, in case of continued large with drawls of gold, even for another week, the president will send a message to oon gress urging the gravity of the situation as a reason for immediate favorable ac tion on the recommendation already made that the seoretary of the treasury be authorized to issue low rate bonds to preserve the integrity of the gold re serve. ANOTHIB BOND ISSUE PBOBABLE. In the absence of prompt legislation it is not doubted that another bond issue, under the same authority as the proceed ing ones, will be announced.

A Breezy Letter from the South on the Joys that Attend the New Mexico Junketers. SEEING THE EXPOSITION AT ATLANTA Royally Entertained at Savannah, In dian Springs and Elsewhere Homeward Bound via Chioago. To the Editor of the New Mexican. Atlanta, Ga., Deo. . 16, '95. The New Mexioo delegation to the exposition have had a perfeot ovation of hospitality all along the ronte from Albuquerque to At lanta. After a day spent at El Paso and two days at New Orleans and as many days on the train the party reached Savannah last Thursday evening. The trip has been ma Je in the Santa Fe di rectors' private car and Superintendent A. G. Wells, of the A. & P., has proved himself an ideal host. 4 night was spent at Montgomery, Ala., where Gov.. Thorn ton, Judge Collier and two or three other members of the party called on Gov. Oates. It was expeoted that Savannah, being the old home of Judge (Jollier, would show some special attention to the party and it is oertain that the hospitality extended was far beyond the expectations of the visitors. Early last Friday a dele gation headed by Mayor Myers and con sisting in Aldermen Garrard and Watson and Ma. Edward Karow called at the car with carritiges and escorted the party for a drive through the city and thence to Bouaventnre, the famous southern ceme tery and to Thunderbolt, a resort greatly patronized by Savannah people. Among the points of interest also visited were the terminals of the Central Railroad of Georgia, where an inspection was made of one of the noble fleet of steamships plying between Savannah and northern ports. The moss bedecked avenues of Bonaventure proved anew the proverb that "nature unadorned is most adorned." Nothing more lovely can be imagined than the long festoons of grey moss whioh in oompany with aged oaks and the winding river hold their silent vigil o'er the graves of Savannah's dead. TABBYING WITH THE TEBBAP1N. At Thunderbolt, a magnificent fish din ner was served, the term "fish" inoluding oysters, shrimps, terrapins and every thing else of an edible nature to be found in the water. Of coarse, artillery punch Savannahs seductive and popular beverage was served. The writer is not at liberty to state whether the New Mex ico party partook or not, but at any rate the occasion was a most enjoyable one. After a visit to the neighboring terrapin farm, where thousands of those queer nsn- animals lay fattening for northern epi cures, the party returned to the oity only to find two boxes reserved for them at the Savannah theatre, whioh by the way, is the oldest place of amusement in the Union. Saturday was equally delight fully spent in a trip down the Savannah river, the mouth of whioh is about twenty miles from the city. This was taken in on the splendid new steam tug, Mauauley, the party being the guests of Capt. O. M. Carter, tbe chief of tbe oorps ot govern ment engineers in charge of the Savannah harbor works; A. 8. Cooper, J. W. O'Sterley, E. A. Gieseler, assistant en gineers, Lieut. Harry Burgess, an army officer likewise detailed on the work; A. N. Maunoy, clerk of the city council, and Emile Newman, a prominent attorney. A run was made to the ocean in a very short time and about the time the choppy old Atlantio began to work in the interior departments of the New Mexioo visitors, the discreet skipper turned his vessel's prow Havannab-ward. A stop was macie on the return trip AT THE SAVANNAH QUABANTINE, where the party, having recovered from their taste of the ooean, partook heartily of oysters roasted on an open fire by a oouple of negro experts. Tbe return to the city was soon followed by the depart ure of tb9 oar from tbe f orest city, eaon one carrying with him the oonviotion ttyat the half of the story of Savannah's hospitality had never-been told. Yester day was spent at Judge Collier's old home in Indian Springs. Here his aged mother lives surrounded by a family ot aevotea children, ell of whom naturally take a deep pride in the prominenoe attained by Judge Collier in bis adopted home. The party, as tbe guests of J odge uomer a people, spent the day delightfully at the appropriately named Wigwam, where about mid-day an old-time southern din ner with corn bread pone, ana tnose other distinctive Georgia viands vied for favor with quail, turkey and other universal favorites. Not tne least favored of the first named dishes was the festive 'possum, to whose charms Mr. Wells, Judge Warren and the rest of the party fell willing victims. Gov. Thornton him self admitted that THE OEOBOIA 'POSSVM quite came up to the Missouri product. Leaving Indian Springs last night the party reaohed Atlanta early this morning. After calling upon Secretary Hoke Smith, who was in tbe city, and subsequently upon President Collier, of the exposition, the party quickly entered upon the pleas ant task of viewing the great show. It is indeed a great exhibition, and is a suc cess from every point of view, even finan cially. To-night the Midway will be visited, to morrow a ride will be taken over the city and to-morrow night the party, with two exoeptions, will start homeward, going via Chioago and Kansas City. It is expeot ed that New Mexioo will be reached about Deoember 22. Judge Collier will spend the holidays with his people in this state, returning to Albuquerque about January 6. Mr. Pope will spend Christmas in Charleston, S. C, going thence to Wash ington to assist in the Santa Fe grant case to be heard in the supreme court January 6. W.H.P.
