Df the Venezuela Trouble Urged'
by the London Chronicle.
The,. Paper Says That England Can
Not Refuse the Request.
Tho Monruo Doctrine Sboold 11 o Looked nt
Jfrom nn American Point of Vlaw
Great liritain linn ltocn Foremost in
a Maker of International Lair.
London, Jan. 8. Tho Chronicle Wed
Tho vital and absorbing feature of
tho controversy is that America de
sires arbitration and wo can not re
fuse the request. It is slowly, we
hope, surely, entering tho minds
of our statesman that in order to
do justice to tho American
case, we must look at the Monroe doc
trine from tho American point of view.
Here in tho hair-splitting of ingenious
lawyers and academic essayists help
very little. Wo havo to take into ac
count a deep-rooted national senti
ment which, has a way of getting recog
nized in policy and action without the
sanction of thcorotical rules. Lord
Salisbury may urge this, that the
American doctrine is not incorporated
in tho code of international laws. Tho
American answer is, "what we call In
ternational law is merely tho customs
observed by European states in their
relations with each other, which havo
been determined by the dominant
powers." England has been foremost
as a maker of international law. It re
quires no exceptional gift of per
ception to see that the United States
aspiro to tho same leading role in
politics on tho American continent.
England filled Europe with glory and
was herself a benefit to mankind in
tho period of the Napoleonic wars.
Tho international law which is to gov
ern tho American continent is in pro
gress of .formation and wo can not
shut our eyes to tho fact that since
tho United States aro tho dominant
power on that continent, that they
will not fail to exercise that para
mount influence which is incidental to
tho position. ,
LIKE A THUNDERBOLT
Oat of a Clear Sley Cnme President Cleve
land's Mesimc;) to tlio KngU.li People.
Philadelphia, Jan. 8. Prof. W.
Hudson Shaw, of Oxford uuiversity, in
speaking Tuesday of the Venezuelan
controversy between England and tho
United States, expressed some opin
ions of tho feeling over tho question in
his country that nro at variance with
the idea that prevails hero of the posi
tion of Great liritain,
"I am only eight days from England,
and was there when tho war scare over
tho Venezuelan affair first started,"
lie said. "Ileing a university exten
sion lecturer and constantly going
from city to city and town to town, I
had unusual opportunities of meeting
all classes of tho peoplo of Eugland in
many sections of tho country. I am
sure I know tho sentiment of the peo
plo on the matter.
"President Cleveland's message came
to tho English peoplo 'like a thunder
bolt out of a clear sky. The feeling
there was one of unutterable astonish
ment that any troublo could occur be
tween England and the United States.
This feeling pervaded all classes. The
feeling of English peoplo for their
American cousins is year by year
educated peoplo in England tho
thought of war with tho United States
seems impossible. I believo a great
deal of good will conio out of this
trouble. "1 think it will be tho cause
of tho formation of a permanent arbi
tration court, that can scttlo all such
disputes between nations. Let Eng
land and America keep peaco for 20
years longer and they can dominuto
tho whole civilized world."

Wichita, Kan., Jan. 8. Portions of
Kiowa, Stafford, Edwards and Pratt
counties aro boing bwopt by prairie
fires. Tho extent of tho destruction
has not yot been definitely learned, for
tho reason that the desolated
country is entirely cut off from
telegraphic communication. There is
no telegraphic communication with
Iuka, in Pratt county, on tho aban
doned branch, but reports from T)odgo
City, Kinsley, Stalford, St. John,
Lamed and other surrounding towns,
lead to tho apprehension that the town
has been swept away. Thousands of

roi.UMiius, O., Jan. S. -There was a
fierco clash between tho Foraker and
McKiniey factions in the senato Tues

Oov. Foraker for the United States
senatorship, and Gov. McKiniey for tho
presidential nomination. It was
over tho confirmation of Joseph P.
Smith's appointment by Gov. McKln
ley for stato librarian. Senator Shat
tttc, of Cincinnati, a friend of Foraker,
charged that Smith assailed Foraker's
character last summer when ho came
out as a candidate for United States
senator, saying ho would better be
sent to the penitentiary. Senator Gar
field, son of the lato president, de
fended Smith, Tho fight was close

The Fortifications at San Fran
cisco Greatly Strengthened
By Three of the Most Powerful Pneu
matic Guns Yet Tested.
They Are Similar to Thoso Now Mounted
nt Sandy Hook, Hut Greatly Improved
Other duns Will Ho Flnct-d ut Im
portant Cities on thn Coast."
Nnw Yor.K, Jan. 8. A Sun special
from Washington says:
Tho fortifications of San Francisco
havo been strengthened in tlio last
week through tho ucceptanco by tho
overnmentof threo of the most pow
erful pneumatic guns yet tested, each
of which threw fiOO pounds of high ex
plosive upward of five hundred yards
with precision and terrific effect upon
tho water where it struck. Columns of
water wore thrown as high in tho air
as the Washington monument, and the
aim was so true that thero would havo
been no difficulty in hitting any ship
which-they might have been aimed at.
With SOO pounds of gelatine a range of
2,100 yards was secured; explosions oc
curred both on impact with tho water,
and with a fixed fuse two seconds
after tho shot struck, the water in
each instance boing tossed over 000
feet in the air. With tho projectiles
of tho same explosive and a chargo re
duced to 100 pounds, the guns pro
pelled shells threo miles and hit so
near tho mark aimed at that a battle
ship would havo been easily blown to
pieces hnd sho been the target.
These three guns are similar to tho
ones which arc now mounted at Sandy
Hook, but the tests demonstrated that
improvements have been made which
places the new weapons in advance of
those at New York both in accuracy
nnd power of range. Other guns will
be placed at Boston and the important
coastwise cities included in the fortifi
cations plan of tlio war department.
The success attending the trials at San
Francs ico has settled to tho
satisfaction of tho ordnance experts
tho value of this typo of weapon as a
part of the ordnance of tho country's
land defenses, and hereafter somo of
theso guns will bo "stationed at tho im
portant cities along the seaboard
where the department proposes con
structing defen ses invulnerable to at
tack from the sea. Eminent ordnanco
experts of tho army, including Gen.
Flagler, have contended that the
pneumatic gun will be of incal
culable value in dealing with a
largo fleet, and that bhips would not
dare approach within its range, know
ing that an explosion of GOO pounds of
gelatine in tho vicinity of a vessel
would have a most disastrous result
upon those on board. It is asserted,
further, that one shot from a dyna
mite gnn would bo worth more than a
broadside from a warship, and that
the country can well risk making a
true shot occasionally with results as
effective as those following tho impact
of a projectile with a battleship.

London, Jan. 8 Tho Westminster

Ultlandcrs Ite.olre to Lay Down Their
Arm ii Itcquestod liy the Transvaal
Government Armed l!ur;?lifrft to llo
ltemtiveit From Johiinuesburg.
Loxnox, Jan. 8. Sir Hercules Rob
inson, governor of Cape Colony, cables
from Pretoria, capital of tho Trans
vaal, under date of Tuesday, that ho
has received a message from tho re
form committee at Johannesburg,
stntinrj that tho Uitlandurs havo re
solved to comply with tho demand of
the Transvaal government that they
relinquish their arms. Tito people,
the committee added, are placing
themselves unreservedly in his hands,
being confident that he will sec that
justice is done them.
Sir Hercules then quotes a messago
sent by Sir Jacobus Detvct, tho British
political agent at Pretoria, to Presi
dent Krugcr, containing tho reform
committee's formal resolution declar
ing that the comtnitteo had instructed
its followers to lay down thoii arms,
relying on the Transvaal government
to maintain order and protect life.
Tito resolution requests that the
armed burghers iu the vicinity of Jo
hannesburg be removed.
Sir Jacobus Ilewet added to his mes
sage that ho was convinced that the
foreigners would abandon their arms
without further dilllculty and urged
that tho republic co-operate with the
committee for a day or two in restor
ing the normal condition of affairs in
Sir Hercules concludes his dispatch
by saying he hopes now to be able to
confer with President Kruger and the
executive council as to the prisoners
and tho grievances of tho foreign resi
dents of Johannesburg.
The Telegraph Wednesday says that
the government has decided to send to
Cape Town, us soon as possible, strong
reinforcement? of cavalry and infan
try. It adds that a second regiment,
which is under orders to return homo
from India, will stop at Cape Town,
while other regiments selected from
the first army corps in England will
shortly leave for that place. The
Telegraph further says that a first
class liritish cruiser has been ordered
to proceed to Delagoa bay.
The Times Wednesday says that or
ders havo been sent to Portsmouth,
Dovonportand Chatham for tho imme
diate placing in commission of six
ships to form a ilying squadron. It is
understood that tho captains for tho
vessels have already been chosen. The
object is obviously to have an addi
tional squadron ready to go
anywhere. The squadron will be com
posed of two first-class battleships
and two first and two second-class
cruisers. Tho names of tho vessels
are yet unknown, but there is hardly
a question that either the I'oyal Oak
or tho Hevenge, now at Portsmouth,
will hoist a pennant.
Tho Endymion and the Hesus, now
at Chatham are likely to be two of the
cruisers selected. Tho paper adds,
that it has also been decided to
despatch a naval force to Delagoa bay,
but whether it will bo composed of
vessels from the Cape or East Indian
squadron is unknown.

would offend Emperor Francis Joseph,
