The Monroe doctrine is the col lective term applied to two decla rations contained in the message of President Monroe to the Con cress of the United States, Dec ember 2, i3i3. The two declara tions are to be found in different portions of the message, and are made with relcrence to inherent subject-matters; the history cf one is ditterent irom mat oi ine omer, and the general principles suggest- ed by the two reter to entirely ait ferent subjects. I will consider them separately. The first decla ration is as follows: At the proposal of the Russian Imperial Government. made through the Minister of the Ern t porer residing here, 1 full power and instructions have been trans mitted to the Ministci of the Uni ted States at St. Petersburg, to arrange, by amicable negotiation, the respective rinhts and interests i ! of the two nations on the completely Upon the downfall of Napoleon, as every student of history knows, an alliance of European powers was formed, and became known as the Holy Alliance, composed of Russia, Prussia, Austria and France. The objects of this alli ance were, among others, to sus tain and extend monarchical prin ciples as far as possible, and I caused an unusaally early market especially to restore to their ! jnir throuahout the cotton area thrones the legitimate nionarchs with :m almost total sacrifice of who had been deposed by Napo- ( top crop.

The Spanish-American States had successfully revolt ed from Spain, and wen- now in existence as independent govern ments.

At this end of the line it appears as if a i.,, nronortion of those who ""v i' i erved are trying to get on roll whether they deserve fjnd on account of indigency or not. The pension was never in tended for any bat the indigent, j and if the law was properly ob- ( served that class could only suc ceed in panning. The fund is not a -en-ice pension as many seem to think. Owing w the fearful abuses of the fund Auditor Stone will rec ommend its abolishment and the miildine f a soldiers' home to tike it place, where the really indi gent and deserving soldiers and their widows cm be eared for. In his report he will say. "The mat-t-.-r of pensions deserves th most Krious attention of thiv Legislature Underthe law the Auditor is Pen sion Cmmissioner and is clothed with almost arbitrary power in granting pensions to applicants. All the safe-guards potable have heretofore been thrown around the land to prevent unworthy persons becoming beneficiaries.
