GETTING DOWN TO WORK
The President’s Message Read
in Both Houses.
APPLAUDED BY REPUBLICANS
Members of the Senate Paid Very Little At
tention to Its Reading—The Blind Chap
lain Starts Out Well.
Washington, Dec. 3.—The session of
the house today introduced the new blind
chaplain. Rev. Mr. Couden of Michigan.
He created a distinct sensation in his
opening prayer by coupling with a peti
tion for peace within our borders one
that we should be quick to resent any
insult to the nation. This was the sen
tence:
“And so, Heavenly Father, let peace
reign throughout nur borders; yet may
we be quick to resent anything like an
Insult to this, our nation. May prosperity
smile in our land, and may peace and
happiness come into every home. So may
Thy kingdom come and Thy will be dono
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.”
Mr. Payne, republican, of New York,
accompanied by his colleagues, Messrs.
Cannon and Crisp, was recognized to an
nounce that their errand to notify the
president that the house was organized
and ready to receive any communication
he might make had been performed. The
president sent his “respectful saluta
tions" to the house, Mr. Payne said, and
authorized the committee to say that he
would communicate at once in writing.
Behind the committee was then seen
Major Pruden, the president's executive
clerk, with the message under his arm.
He was at once recognized, and the doc
ument sent to the speaker’s desk It
was handed to the clerk and read.
Throughout the reading, which occupied
over an hour, there was respectful and
earnest attention given to the message.
As the clerk neared the end of the
message there was a gathering of mem
bers interested in its reading at the pit
in front of the desk. At its close two
or three republicans applauded. Tt was
1:50 o’clock when the reading was com
pleted. , .
Mr. Payne of New York moved that
the message be referred to the committee
of the whole and that 6000 copies be
printed for the use of the house. Agreed
to. The house then, at 1:52, adjourned
until Friday.
The Senate.
Half of the time that me sermio re
mained in session today was occupied
in the reading of the president's mes
sage The message was laid on the ta
ble and subsequently that part of it re
lating to the payment of the indemnity
to British subjects in connection with
the Behring sea controversy was referred
specially to the committee on foreign re
lations, with instructions to examine
th" question of reciprocal liability of the
American and Canadian governments.
Mr. Morgan announced his intention of
addressing the senate on that subject to
morrow.
The dues of the United States govern
ment in relation to affairs transpiring in
other countries was the theme of va
rious bills, resolutions and memorials
presented to the senate today. The al
leged atrocities in Asia Minor and the
"deplorable condition of affairs in Tur
• key” were the subjects *of memorials
from the states of Illinois, New Hamp
shire and Massachusetts.
The recognition of belligerent rightsfor
the Cuban revolutionists was asked by
the cities of Tampa and St. Augustine,
Fla., and the affirmation of the principles
of the Monroe doctrine was demanded
In joint resolutions introduced by Mr.
Lodge, republican, of Massachusetts,
and Mr. Cullom, republican, of Illinois.
Kesolutlons in favor of the recognition
of Cuban belligerency were offered by
Mr. Call, democrat, of Florida, and Mr.
Allen, populist, of Nebraska, and both
these senators intend to submit their
views in speeches to the senate tomor
row.
Mr. Pruden, one of the president's sec
retaries, had leached the capitol and was
within the senate chamber ready to de
liver the president’s message a few min
utes before the hour of noon. After
prayer and the reading and approval of
the journal of yesterday the message was
received and laid before the senate. The
secretary of the senate proceeded to
read the message In the presence of a
fairly full senate.
The reading of the message occupied
•one hour and forty minutes. There was
little pretense on the part of the sen
ate at large that It was paying any close
attention to the message or was much
Interested in It. There were some ex
ceptions, however.
On the republican side of the chamber
Senators Morrill of Vermont, Davis of
Minnesota and Burrows of Michigan
held printed copies of the message In
their hands and occasionally seemed to
be reading It for themselves. Cockrell
of Missouri did t]}« same thing on the
democratic side. Senators Palmer of Il
linois, Morgan of Alabama, George of
Mississippi and Harris of Tennessee were
the only other democratic senators who
could be regarded as attentive listeners.
Two of the populists. Allen of Nebraska
1 and PelTer of Kansas, did not relax their
application to the message from Hs open
ing to the close, but they appeared to be
more Interested in Its treatment of the
financial question, Its recommendation
of the retirement and cancellation of

At 1:40 o’clock the reading was finished
and the message was laid on the table
and ordered printed.
Various annual reports and depart
mental communications- were laid before
the senate and laid on the table. Then
the memorials and resolutions above de
scribed, relating to Cuba and Turkey
and the Monroe doctrine, were presented
and referred to the committee on foreign
relations.
Mr. Stewart, popuilte, of Nevada, in
troduced a bill for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver, and it was referred to
the finance committee. Then 272 bills and
eleven joint resolutions were introduced
and refei^ed. Many of these are inherited
from previous congresses. One of them,
by Mr. Kyle of South Dakota, provides
for the government control of the tele
graphs. One by Mr.JPeflfer of Kansas Is
a free coinage bill, calling for an aggre
gate expenditure of $8,300,000. Two of
these were introduced by Mr. Daniel, pro
viding for buildings at Newport News,

to cost $150,000.
Mr. Peffer of Kansas offered a Joint
resolution proposing amendments to the

ment, especially respecting foreign rela

THINGS DRAMATIC.
“The Fatal Card" was repeated to a
small audience at O’Brien’s opera house
last night. This is one of Gustave Froh
inan’s best plays and has been favorably
received in ail cities where it has been
played this season. The play itself is
far above the average of its class ami
the company presenting it is one of
Frohman’s best. In the cast are several
artists who stand well up towards the
head of their profession and who render
their parts very cleverly.
Marablev the gentlemanly scoundrel
who heads a gang of thieves, is splen
didly portrayed by Charles Stedman,
who seems to understand thoroughly
what is required of him and has the abil
ity to execute it.
Walter Howe as Gerald Austin makes
an impetuous though tender son and de
voted lover, and in the most exacting
circumstances does not fail of his part.
M. J. Jordan as Jim Dixon, Marable’s
pal, would never be mistaken. He is a
typl< al villain.
Richard C. Bennett affords the audi
ence considerable amusement as Harry
Burgess in the love making and the bath -
ing scenes, though he overdoes his part
in some instances.
The cold, calculating, avaricious
broker, A. K. Austin, father of Gerald
and Cecil, fell into good hands whqn as
signed to W. H. Turner, and s® did Ter
rence O'Flynn, Marable’s pal and butler
at "The Cedars,” Marable’s home.
Kathryn Oslcrman is a clever actress,
who, in the role of Margaret. Marable,
comes up to expectations and gives en
tire satisfaction.
Annie Vislatre makes a pretty, viva
cious and charming Cecil Austin, and
the prudish maiden aunt, Miss Penelope
Austin, is very well acted by Mme. Co
rina Jordan.
Belie Gilhert as Mercedes has some
very difficult parts, which she carries
out most cleverly.
“A Railroad Ticket.”
The next attraction at O'Brien's will
he “A Railroad Ticket,” which is bonked
for Friday and Saturday nights and
Saturday matinee. It. is a bright and ca
pable company that will present this
play, including such well-known per
formers as Eugene Canfield, James H.
Bradbury, Charles E. Grapewin, Harry
Porter, Frank Gardiner. John S. Terry,
Kiutiei Kerr, Beatrice Norman. Hattie
Waters. Sallie Stemblor. Mattie Lock
ette. Hulda Halvers and Lou Rice.
The hits at selling suburban lots, the
rain machine craze and railway ticket
scalpers, with which the piece abounds,
are said to be new and refreshing. Hu
morous, novel and mechanical effects
also add Interest to the piece, prominent
among which is an electric street car,
fully equipped and in actual use.

Regular Monthly Meeting Yesterday—No Bus
iness of Public Interest-Special
t Committee.
Camp Hardee, United Confederate Vet
erans, met In regular monthly session
yesterday afternoon, but no business of
public Interest was transacted.
The special committee appointed at a
previous meeting for that purpose was in
structed to sell the wigwam and the ad
joining building as early as possible.
Attention was called to the concert to
be given tomorrow night at O'Brien's
opera house, for the benefit of Indigent
cx-Confederate soldiers. . The concert
gives promise of being unusually good
aim will no doubt attract a large crowd
to the opera house on that occasion.
The names of quite a number of mem
bers who were three months or more in
arrears for dues were read and according
to the by-laws their names stricken from
the rolls.
Miss Aub Indicted.

LIVINGSTON'S RESOLUTION
He Asks for a Joint Investigat
ing Committee
IN REGARD TO VENEZUELA
He Says That This Country Will Declare War
Against England If She Violates the
Monroe Doctrine.

Washington, Dec. 3.—The following is
the text of a resolution introduced in the
house today by Mr. Livingston of Geor
gia;
Whereas, By a joint resolution of con
gress, approved February 20, 1895, it was
earnestly recommended to the favorable
consideration of both parties in interest
that Great Britain and Venezuela should
refer their dispute as to the boundaries
to friendly arbitration; and,
Whereas, The said action of congress
was by the president of the United States
—through the proper channel of official
communication—courteously and with
kindly intent brought to the attention of
her Britannic majesty’s government; and
Whereas, Her Britannic majesty’s gov
eminent has failed to give a fair ana j
prompt consideration to the important j
request contained tm that joint reso
lution, or to answer the same in any
manner such as was due and becoming
to the dignity of the United States as a
great nation and to the friendly relations
existing between the two governments;
and
Whereas, After said communication
had been so brought to Its attention for
friendly consideration and action, her
Britannic majesty’s government,
through its colonial secretary, instructed
and advised the colonial government of
British Guiana to advance into and take
forcible possession of certain territory of
Venezuela Involved in the existing
boundary dispute—an act which has been
officially declared to be the manifestation
of an unfriendly disposition towards
these United States—therefore be it
Resolved, by the Senate and House or
Representatives in Congress assembled.
That a committee, to be composed of two
senators and three members of the house
of representatives to be chosen by those
bodies respectively, and It is hereby
created, with Instructions to examine
into the facts connected with the boun
dary dispute between Venezuela and
British Guiana, and as soon as may be
practicable report the proper action to be
taken by congress to vindicate and pre
serve the dignity and rights of the United
States In the premises.
Mr. Livingston Deneves mat uns prop
osition will meet a hearty responsiveness
on the part of congress. He says the
Joint commission may hold Its session in
Washington and he himself has in pos
session all the data necessary for a
thorough investigation of the dispute.
He has, he says, a copy of the letter sent
by the London foreign office to the col
ony of British Guiana away back in 1840,
in which the premier gave notice to the
British subjects in the colony that they
must not cross the Ukon river, and if so
the home government would not be re
sponsible for the consequences.
The obvious construction to be placed
upon this letter, Mr. Livingston says. Is
that her majesty's government at that
time desired to prevent any further eiv
croachment by British subjects upop
American soil. Since that time Great
Britain has projected her boundary 300
miles to the west.
This, Mr. Livingston asserts, Is a most
flagrant violation of the Monroe doctrine
and it is for this reason that the United
States must Intervene. He suggests that
the commission shall extend a courteous
invitation to the British ambassador.
Sir Julian Pauncefote, and to the Vene
zuelan minister, Senor Jose Andrade, to
appear before them and to furnish the
committee with official statements repre
senting their own point of view. Senor
Andrade, Mr. Livingston says, will with
out. question comply with the invitation.
‘‘And the British ambassador—suppose
he declines to attend, what then?”
“What then," queried the Georgia rep
resentative quickly. "Why, we’ll go
ahead without him. The rights of this
government are concerned in this matter
and It is our duty to see that they are
properly protected, no matter what ob
stacles are thrown in our path."
"Suppose,” It was suggested, "that
this committee finds the Venezuelan con
tention to be true; that Great Britain
has been encroaching upon her territory
for half a century, what then will con
gress do?”
"Congress,” replied Mr. Livingston,
significantly, "knows what it ought to
do and will do it.”
"Will congress go to the extent of de
claring war against Great Britain if she
does not renounce the territory In ques
tion?”
“Yes, sir, congress will. I believe that
two-thirds of the republicans in this
bouse would favor such a course, and I
know that all the democrats will. And I
am satisfied that the same sentiment ex
ists in the senate.”
jVLr. Louee s resolution.
The following is the text of the Monroe
doctrine resolution introduced in the sen
ate today by Mr. Lodge of Massachusel Is
and referred to the committee on foreign
relations:
Resolved, By the senate and house of
representatives of the United States of
America in congress assembled that the
congress of the United States deem it
proper to assort, as a principle in which
the rights and Interests of the United
States are involved, that the American
continents, by the-free and independent
condition which they have assumed and
maintained, are henceforth not to be con
sidered as subjects for further coloniza
tion by European powers.
Resolved, That we should consider any
attempt on their part to extend their sys
tem tn any portion of this hemisphere
as dangerous to our peace and safety.
With the existing colonies or dependen
cies of any European power we have not
interfered, and shall not interfere, buj
with the governments who have de
clared their Independence and main}
tained it, and whose independence wi
have on great consideration and on just
principles acknowledged, we could not
v.iew any interposition for the purpose of
oppressing them or controlling in any
other manner their destiny by any Euro}
pean power In any other light than as the
manifestation of an unfriendly disposi
tion towards the United States.
Resolved, That in accordance with the
doctrines laid down by President Monroe,
as stated In the preceding resolutions,
the United States declares that It pro
poses to maintain the principles embod
ied in that doctrine, and will regard any
infringement of it, or any attempt on
the part of any European power to take

CHRISTMAS TIME.
Alabama Bryce Insane Hospital,

The Christmas holidays are now at
hand. We desire to make the occasion
one of pleasure to the patients of this
hospital. It adds very much to the sat

at their homes, to be remembered by
their friends and relatives. Will you
kindly send some token to be given a
friend or relative of yours in the hos

joyable occasion, when many receive
presents from home, from each other,
or from their kind friends. Boxes of
clothing, fruits, candies or other luxu
ries: of illustrated papers, magazines
or books can be sent to the care of the
hospital to be donated as directed. Sev
eral gentlemen's clubs in the state have
been in the habit of sending us their last

Some friends have, heretofore, con
tributed money to be spent for special
patients or to be added to a general fund
for this purpose. No charity is more ap
pealing or more appreciated.
