Integrity and Honesty of Purpose. Puerto Cabello, Dec. 24.*?This port has been effectively blockaded slnen Monday. The blockade Is being en forced against vessels of all national ities. Caracas. Dec. 24.?The port oX Coro. which is surroundfd on the land by the revolutionists, is not blockaded. In Caracas thlB fact is believed to mean that the British and German fleets are working in harmony with the revolutionists and not blockading Coro, in order to allow the tree en trance of Dutch schooners from Cn racoa. bringing arms and ammunition to the rebels.

Dec. 24.?The cabinet spent the entire time of the meeting yesterday In a discussion of the Vene zuelan situation. Views for and against the president's acceptance of the invitation to arbitrate wore dla cuBscd. Pending the receipt of the invitations it is stated that tho presi dent declined to commit himself as ??"> his course. The state department yesterday r? celved a cablegram from Minister Bowen, the first for several- days, recording the establishment of the blockade lines according to the proc lamations already issued, and Btating that the port "of Coro la not yet'block aded. - Defiled Himself to'Callers: The meeting was prolonged to more than two hours. All the members were present except Secretary Moody, who Is out of the city. Secretary iioot was tne~"flTot. T at the ex ecutive offices. He entered tho presi dent's office shortly after 10 o'clock. The president denied himself to all callers and remained In consultation with the secretary of war until the arrival of the other members. Secre tary Hay brought to the meeting prac tically nothing- new relating to the situation. No response has been re ceived to the president's original sug gestion to the powers that they con sent to the reference of tho Vene zuelan controversy to the arbitration of Tho Hague tribunal, and no formal request had been received that the president act as arbitrator of the dif ficulty. That such a request will be received formally and officially is now practically assured. Some Opposed to Hague Tribunal. It is known that now some members of the cabinet are opposed to re ferring the matter to The Hague trl bunal for these reasons: In the first place, they have no de sire to submit the Monroe doctrine to tfie arbitrament of any non-Ameri can tribunal, not oven excepting the august and eminently fair tribunal o? The Hague. They very much prefer that if this doctrine Is tq. be the sub ject of arbitration, if it Is to be even brought In Incidentally, that American Influences shall pass on It. Not that the falrnesB of The Hague arbitrator? is Impeached, but as most of them represent European and monarchical interests, it is realized that their training may be regarded as unsympa thetic where they are required to deal with such an essentially Americnr subject as the Monroe doctrine. It I true that on Its face the arbitration proposal contains nothing that lndl catcs that thlB doctrine Is to be at tacked. but so complex and numerous' are the questions which will come be fore the arbitration that 11 18 appr? Vended here that the famous doctrln* scarcely can be kept from considei ation. Would Take Too Much Time. Another reason-that animates these cabinet officers in this Inclination tn ward acceptance is their conviction that an Inordinate length of time would be consumed If the issue it taken before The Hague tribunal. Th machinery is sufficient, but ponderous and difficult to put in motion. First, there must be arranged a basis of ar bitration. then arbitrators be selected by the parties to the case, and these In turn muat choose an umpire or um pires. and while this is going on tho blockade Would continue, with its ever present danger of active hostilities and bloodshed that might render nuga tory all attempts at arbitration. On the- other hand, if tho president un lertakes tho settlement, he can get rid of all red tape and start the^worlt Of arbitration within a few days. Notice to the Public.
