PRESIDENT CLEVELAND WILL

lESEIli'S Cli'I H&Y EE rail
Some Persous U Refute Think an 'n

Is a Correct One.
Washington, Dec. 21. The president
signed the Venezuelan commission resolu
tion about 3:15 o'clock this afternoon.
It is, therefore, now a law.
WILL PROCEED IMMEDIATELY.
Washington, Dec. 21. Although there
were many callers at the White House
today the president declined to receive
anyone, save three members of his cab
inet, Messrs. Olney, Carlisle and Her
bert, each of whom spent some time with
the president. Before he went to the
White House Secretary Olney saw Sen
ator Lodge and Representative Mc
Crcary of Kentucky, and Dinsmore of
There is every indication that the pres
ident will proceed immediately to the
selection of the commission to locate
the Venezuelan boundary line as soon
as the act has received his signature.
In view of the great amount of work
to be discharged by this commission it
is said that the president will endeavor
to secure the services ns members of
men of the highest character and ability.
None of the names be has in mind has
been officially mentioned, nor will they
be until the president has been notified
by the persons selected of their accept
ance of the high commission. It is in
timated, however, that in view of the
fact that the work in some respects may
he of a technical nature, there may bo on
the list the name of an army engineer
officer or a naval officer. There is also
a probability that it may be necessary
for the commission to visit Madrid and
the Hague in order to obtain access to
the ancient official records of the Spanish
and Dutch claims inherited by Great
Britain and Venezuela. The state de
partment has been informed by some
persons of repute, who have made a
study of the subject, that there is good
ground for the belief that upon careful
scrutiny the claim of Venezuela to the
territory in dispute on the border will be
found to be without solid foundation nnd
that the commission will be obliged to
find that Great Britain is in fact really
entitled to the possession of the whole
tract claimed by her, and, perhaps, more
territory. These representations, how
ever, have not shaken the determination
of the administration to continue the
course it has laid down.

LITTLE ABOUT WAR.

Loudon, Doc. 21. (Copyright, 1895,
by the Associated Tress.) No excitement
has been manifested here in . political
circles over the Venezuelan complica
tions, although their effects have been
felt on the Btock exchnuge. There has
been some unloading of American se
curities, but the cabinet ministers are
all enjoying the Christmas holidays in
the country, and outside the utterances
of the newspapers there is nothing to
indicate that war is apprchpnded., Of
course, the strained relations between
Great Britain nnd the United States have
been uppermost in the public minds, es
pecially during the latter pnrt of the
week, and the matter, which was at first
treated lightly, is now more deeply dis
cussed and there ore indications thnt
the gravity of the affair is now fully
grasped by the people at large. A strik
ing fact is that without a single excep
tion, if the utterances of the press and
those of the representative men who
have spoken on the subject can be relied
upon, the whole country stand behind
president Cleveland. In addition to the
financial disorder, which has been the
first fenture of the trouble, there is one
phase of the reception of the war scare
here which deserves siieeinl attention,
not only in England, but in the United
States. The alarming reports circulated
have been seized upon by the agricultural
party as a justification for the demands
which they have recently mndo on the
government for a change in the policy
of Great Britain from free trade to pro
Mr. Jnmes Lowther, M. P., lender of
the Protection party, indicates this in
a pointed letter printed in the Times,
nnd showing the grave condition in
which Great Britain would be if her food
supplies from America were stopped.
Mr. Lowther points out that 50 per
cent of the British food imports comes
from the United States, and lie there
fore asks that British agriculture be pro
tected in order to make this country us
independent ns possible of American food
Fears are expressed that the war scare
will materially assist this agitation for
protection against American food im
ports, although the Statist todny gives
utterance to a grave warning to the pub
lic not to be frightened into supporting
import duties upon wheat. In spite of
such warning, there is little doubt that
the agitation here in favor of protection
will be further strengthened by bellicose
utterances on both sides of the Atluutic,
and with a strong Conservative govern
ment in office it is thought some meas
ure for protection and fostering of Brit
ish husbandry is not unlikely to be intro
duced shortly and to become a law in
the duo course of time.
Genernl Lawrie, formerly a member
of the Canadian house of commons, snid:
"There is a serious risk of certain hot
heads on the frontier attacking what
they cordially hate the British fiag. So
far as Canndn is concerned, the chief dan
ger lies in a small party of those jingoes
crossing the frontier iu a moment of ex
